We had a great vacation and our stay at Ruby K was great. The house had all the room we needed, and the pool was amazing. Needs a little tender loving care but we would stay here again. The pool made it worth it.

This place was just great. Had way mare room than needed. Love the fact that it had a pool just for us! Was close to everything and still quiet and relaxing. Will definitely be looking to rent it again cause the whole family loved it.

Great family vacation. We have stayed here a few times and live it. The house fits our needs perfectly. The staff at the rental company is super nice. Thank you Ruby K and Garden City Beach Rentals for another great experience.

The house was perfect for what we wanted and needed. The house is dated but very clean and perfect. The pool is fabulous.

Ruby K needs some updating, but overall it's a great place to stay. I would definitely come back and plan to do so next year. The pool area is fantastic!

We really liked the house was clean and in a great spot to get to the beach. Had enough room for a big family. The only thing is it need was for someone to check lights outside the top porch light didn't work or top spot lights. But we all had a great time at the house. Would rent it again if we decide to come back next year.

The experience was great. It was our first time being the ones who booked the place to stay and we were worried about booking a place that looked nice but was actually a dump, and it turned out great!! One of the main reasons we picked this house was the pool, and we hoped the pictures weren't misleading. The pool was actually very large, especially compared to the rest of the listings in this area. It had a lot of leaves in it, but our stay was so late in the season, it's to be expected. The interior was great, and the walk to the beach was just one block. All in all, it was better than expected. The only sad part is no pets. I'd love to stay here again, but our next vacation we'd like to bring our two beagles.

First time renting in Surfside, it was a different experience, seems like a lot more rules than what we were use to. Pool was nice to have and property was a really good experience.

We loved this place. Our family stays outside and it would be hard to find a place with better outside amenities. Nice private pool, plenty of sitting areas, huge patio, some yard, and plenty of off street parking were all great. Just being able to park vehicles side by side without having to move one vehicle to let another out was a huge plus. Walk to beach access was easy and short. Indoors the place was more than adequate, but nothing fancy. Yeah, it's got window ac units, no big deal, did the job. All we did was cook and crash there anyway. A big improvement would be an indoor stairway connecting floors, but for split family this worked out fine. If I need a good beach shack with plenty of space on the cheap this place is hard to beat. If you need fancy pants furniture and an ocean view while you sip your wine, this might not be for you.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ruby Retreat, not far from the ocean, short walk, good neighborhood, and the large pool in backyard was kept very clean. Thanks for the memories!

The accommodations were very nice. The up-stairs area needs to be modernized and ungraded to look more like the downstairs; better decore for the upstairs.

Location to the beach was great. Very clean Rooms and real nice inside and out. Office empyloees were really nice. the only problem was up stairs where I stayed the A/C unit in the sitting room did not work.

Overall our experience was a good one there were some areas of the rental which we belive could have easily been improved. One was the poolside area which had the appearance of being neglected. While the pool itself was cleaned regularly and well the furniture tables grill area etc were dirty and neglected. Also the lighting for the pool at night was poor the one light was constantly going on and off. The laundry room while spacious had no areas to fold hang or store clothes while cleaning this could be improved easily but basically it is just a big HOT empty room with a washer and dryer. Also the funiture kitchen pots pans and untensils could use some updating and were a little sparse. Some bedside tables with lamps would have been an improvement as well. The window unit air conditioners in some of the bedrooms were also extremely lound and while window unit air conditioning is better that no air conditioning obviously central air would be a better ammenity.
A short walk to the beach and just a great house. I can't say enough good things.
There are some minor things that could either be changed or upgraded - but for this price and what you get, they aren't even worth mentioning. You will have a great time if you rent this house.
This is the third year that I have rented from Garden City Realty - and next year will definitely be number four. They make everything so very easy and I really appreciate that. Special kudos this year to Jackie Alston - she defines customer service. She was so very helpful and so pleasant.

I originally rented the house before pictures were posted. I was a little worried - BUT, I was thrilled when I saw the place. It was a perfect layout for our large family gathering. The pool was AMAZING - it is as big as pools that motels had when I used to come to Myrtle Beach when I was a kid :-).
