We spent December 17-31 in the Summer Breeze beach house, a total of four adults and one pre-teen. Had a great time. Comfortable and clean with well stocked kitchen.

WE FOUND SUMMER BREEZE TO BE A REALLY NICE HOUSE THAT IS CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED. WE ALSO LIKED THE FACT THAT THE DOOR WAS A COMBINATION ELIMINATING NEED FOR DOOR KEYS AND A STOP AT THE REALTY OFFICE TO CHECK IN. WE ESPECIALLY LIKED THE PHONE MESSAGE LETTING US KNOW THAT CLEANING WAS DONE AND THE HOUSE WAS READY FOR OUR ARRIVAL.
- Jeff M. from Mohawk, Posted: 04/18/2022
We had a great time. Our party of six loved the location and the easy drive to the great restaurants in Murrell’s Inlet. The access to the beach was effortless as you can step off the property and have your beach chair in the sand. The wind made it difficult to enjoy the beach as much as we had hoped. We usually stay in the north and had never experienced wind this much. I don’t know if it is usually like this or just a weather pattern rolling through. The house itself was perfect for us. My only complaint was the size of the master bedroom. With a king bed, it was difficult to move around if you had to get up in the middle of the night. I had some bruised shins from banging them off the bed. We would have loved a hot tub as well but we knew the rental didn’t have one before arriving. The check in process was really smooth and easy as our house was available very early which was great. We would rent again in the future.

Summer Breeze great location. Great week. Beautiful views. House needs new floors every room (dangerous for falls with owner and rental agent liability issues.
- James R. from Salisbury, Posted: 12/07/2020
Stayed at Summer Breeze several times and it is always the same, clean, great location, great layout, directly on the beach with the pier within walking distance. Would recommend this property to anyone that would love a great place to stay...

Our family vacation experience was FABULOUS!! The house was decorated beautifully and the furniture was very comfortable. It was so nice to be right on the ocean and to have an ocean view from more than one window. The home was very clean and had all the necessities for a very memorable family vacation!!
The house had sand/dirt on the floors and on the couches. The bathmats were dirty. Other than that, it was fairly clean.
A suggestion for the kitchen would more pots/pans. Not much at all to do any cooking.
Also a couple of rocking chairs for the front porch would be a wonderful addition. Everyone needs a rocking chair to sit in at the beach. :)
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider this house in the future.
Thank you and woof woof for being pet friendly to our fur babies. Our pups had a relaxing week.
A HUGE perk for coming back to Garden City Realty... is no ridiculous pet fee. Thank you GCR for being reasonable.
- Jennifer C. from Swansea, Posted: 10/10/2020
House was just as the pics showed. Love how close this house is to the sand and water. There's no long deck taking you over dunes and out to the beach which is nice. There are some small side steps through some brush for getting off the concrete pad, but it would be nice to have steps or a ramp coming right off the front portion of the concrete.
- John D. from Clemmons, Posted: 10/03/2020
Very nice place. Over priced for 2021

We’ve stayed at this rental before. Great access to the beach. We had a very relaxing stay.
- Becky R. from Manning, Posted: 07/20/2020
House was clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the porch and enjoyed eating meals there most of the time. Beds were comfortable. My only complaint was I thought the kitchen was under stocked. We had to use plastic cups to get us through the day. It needed more coffee cups, glasses and silverware. Wine opener was difficult but we figured it out. Another issue was figuring out how the family area tv worked; quite confusing but maintenance man came to help us. It was the perfect location and we would stay there again.

- Robyn C. from Shelbiana, Posted: 10/26/2019
We stayed at this property for a week in October and it was perfect. My husband, dog and I loved the deck which in my opinion is the best feature of the home. Such a perfect and relaxing view with the option to sit under the covered deck or in the sun! The home was very well maintained, clean, and decorated nicely. The neighborhood was quiet and extremely laid back. The beach wasn’t crowded at all. We will be booking this home for every vacation from now on!
- James R. from Salisbury, Posted: 10/14/2019
Have stayed at Summer Breeze a few times before. It is always clean, well kept and maintained. Wifi a little slow at times, table too large for patio. Would benefit more by having about 4 rocking chairs instead..
- Lynlee C. from McMurray, Posted: 10/07/2019
I was afraid to stay in this home because it was dog friendly. This is the first time I brought my dog to the beach and was a little worried about other dogs being in the unit. It was extremely clean; no signs of dogs ever being there; and my dog didn't seem to notice any order from other dogs!

We loved staying at Summer Breeze! Booked it again for this July!
- Stephanie C. from Springfield, Posted: 09/11/2018
Summer Breeze is a great vacation rental property. It is so close to the beach, just a step outside your back door! No dunes to walk through. It had everything our group needed for a wonderful vacation. It is located close to the pier and the restaurants/attractions in Garden City but not too busy. The artwork is the house funny (charming). I would recommend with enthusiasm! Garden City Realty do a wonderful job and make everything so easy.
- Anonymous from Reynoldsburg, Posted: 08/06/2018
Although we had to compete between sun and rain we had a wonderful vacation. We really enjoyed the porches up and down. We felt a step is needed off the porch to the beach.The house was clean and comfortable. Had a great vacation.
- William O. from Watertown, Posted: 08/23/2017
The property description was accurate. It was clean and well maintained. The only issues were the refrigerator door didn't stay closed and one of the bathroom doors would stick.
- Anonymous from Darlington, Posted: 08/21/2017
My son and I enjoyed a week at Summer Breezes along with our 2 dogs! The location was perfect as we enjoyed walking to the pier (.6 of a mile) as well as it's nearness to the ocean! Loved the covered porch and spent a lot of time there both during the day and at night. Only a couple of items we needed in the kitchen but no big deal. We enjoyed the layout of the house as well as being able to park completely under the house and the stairs were also covered. Excellent since it was raining the morning we packed to leave!! I would definitely recommend this house for others!!
close to pilfering that great skillet) There were linens aplenty and the washer & dryer functioned perfectly. It was spotless when we arrived and we lacked for nothing. Thank you for providing such a stellar accommodation for a family very much in need of

This was a perfect place for a family needing to be together without a lot of hustle & bustle. It was quiet at night. The beach was not crowded during the day. The house was well appointed and had the best stocked kitchen I have ever had in a rental. (Came

Have stayed at Summer Breeze before and this time was no different. The rental was in excellent shape, very clean as always, only had a slight problem with a few electrical outlets but was taken care of immediately. Very enjoyable stay. Will stay there again in the future.

Other than the jellyfish stings,it was the best vacation ever!
- Anonymous from FAIRFAX, Posted: 08/08/2016
The house is in great shape and was perfect for myself and three College age kids. We still had plenty of room and comfort for 4 visitors the first two days of our trip. The beach and surrounding area is as nice as you'll find in Myrtle. The half-mile walk to the pier was the perfect combination of exercise and entertainment for kids of all ages. Check-in took less than 2 minutes, and the key drop box for check out is a great convenience.
- Kenneth B. from Midlothian, Posted: 07/18/2016
Ms. Baker, Thank you taking the time to write a review about your summer vacation at Summer Breeze. We are happy to announce that Summer Breeze is now under new ownership. All of the items that you've included above have been addressed. We hope to see you and your family again soon!
- Garden City Realty staff
The location and the layout of the house was fine. The furniture was fine. The kitchen was poorly equipped. A house that is advertised as sleeping 12 should not have only four glasses. Also the cookware was very worn out. Additionally there were many many Rusty chairs on the porch. They are stacked in the corner. It looks like storage. There's not room to use that many chairs. Porch is small, the chairs are in the way. Chair should be thrown out
- Steve B. from Irmo, Posted: 07/05/2016
Nice house, great location. Patio furniture was rusty and falling apart.
- James R. from Salisbury, Posted: 05/16/2016
My wife and I recently stayed the week of 5/7/16 at Summer Breeze. It was a great vacation home with a covered porch that was right at the ocean at high tide. Great location close to numerous places to eat and shop. The only drawback for us is the 2 flights of stairs to get in and out of the home. Other than that we enjoyed our time there.
- Joan R. from Dallas, Posted: 10/05/2015
We had a great week!! As always the house was lovely!!
- Anonymous from Merriweather, Posted: 04/27/2015
We had a wonderful time, weather was great, enjoyed long walks on the beach everyday, visits with fishermen on the pier, fireworks along the beach almost every night. Wish we could have stayed longer. Only regret was the immediate distance to the public could get a bit crowed in front of our rental.
- Anonymous from Lynchburg, Posted: 03/16/2015
House was nicely appointed and amenities were as advertised.
- Anonymous from Monroe, Posted: 07/21/2014
This house was perfect for our extended family of 7 adults and 2 kids. The location was perfect and being able to walk directly out to the beach from our front door was great. It was clean with a decent kitchen and functional set up. We would definitely stay here again.
My only slight complaint is that the Wifi signal is pretty weak. Unless you are in the living room with the router, the coverage is spotty at best. Not a big deal when you are really there to relax anyway. Just a note to the owners :)
Overall, we had a great time and I would absolutely recommend this house/location to others!
- Brian H. from Uniontown, Posted: 07/21/2014
We vacationed with another family and had a total of 4 adults and 4 kids. We had a blast. House is located in an excellent area. Calm and manageable during the day but yet not too far from the craziness up in Myrtle if you are so inclined to go that way (and fight the traffic getting there!). The covered back deck is a great place to be and close enough to watch the kids playing on the beach. Inside was decent and we have no complaints about the decor or furnishings. It was exactly what we were hoping for.
- Susan F. from Waldorf, Posted: 07/18/2014
The living room was nicely decorated with nice furnishings. Time to upgrade the refrigerator (would not seal), dishwasher and stove. The layout of the place was great! Very comfortable for 8 people any additions would have made it uncomfortable. Location was excellent! Beach is narrow so at high tide not a lot of sand room. The rod iron furniture has to go! I sat on it at night and my clothes were stained. As a clean freak, I felt that it could have been a little cleaner. The floors were dusty/dirty and the kitchen counters needed a good cleaning. It should be pristine for the price. I hope the appliances get updated as I plan to stay again next year!
I wish garden city had smaller places to rent that were pet friendly also. We r there every year and now we have a dog, retired, and only 2 of us.
- Sandy S. from Eastlake, Posted: 05/26/2014
We were very happy, would use again. Perfect beach, close to everything. You would never know it was pet friendly. Everyone in our party was very happy.
- Kari S. from Pasadena, Posted: 05/19/2014
Best oceanfront vacation home that we have stayed in. Very clean and cozy. My dog, Mugilla loved lounging on the oceanfront sundeck and taking walks on the beach!
- Larry O. from Sumter, Posted: 05/13/2014
We were very pleased with our stay at "Summer Breeze"! All we had to do when we arrived was enjoy. Everything was very nice and the location was GREAT.
- Anthony V. from Moorseville, Posted: 05/12/2014
The only problem we had was the neighbor had a water leak. They shut the water off and didnt bother letting us 4 yr old granddaughter was in the shower with soap in her hair with no water. Called the office to let them know. The water company showed up the next day. Asked if our water was on. Come on now. Several people with no water and you show up the next day. Luckily my brother-in-law knew how to turn it back on and made sure the repairman hurried up. We were without water for several hours. Managements response was inexcusable. Besides that, dolphins every m orning whats not to love!
- Allan N. from Kitchener, Posted: 10/21/2013
We have been here 3 years running and have booked again for next year. Great property, great location.
- Elaine L. from Milford, Posted: 10/14/2013
This was our second year at Summer Breeze. The location of this home is priceless. Definitely will recommend this rental to anyone. We did run into a few issues this year and one was the same as last yr. Light bulbs. The home is in need of them. Extras should be left in the wash room so guests have access. There was no lighting in the stairway and front door. Multiple lights out. Ceiling fan on deck still has bulb out. It would be great to sit outside at night if there was proper lighting. Dryer doesn't dry. Called maintenance but still not working. Dishwasher sounds like its on it's last leg. Deck furniture needs replacing. Rusted and broken. But even with those few issues the home is just awesome to stay in. We will be back next year for sure.

A week with family...all together in the same house. Loved Summer Breeze! Perfect location and so very comfortable.

One of the few pet friendly rentals which was so clean that one would never know pets had ever stayed there. Very convenient to attractions and far enough away to be peaceful.
- Karen N. from Alpharetta, Posted: 05/13/2013
I would like to thank the owners for allowing us to stay in their beach house. This is my second year to stay here for a total of 3 weeks. It is very peaceful and I love the location. I would recommend this house to everyone.
- Robert S. from Blowing Rock, Posted: 03/12/2013
Once again, Summer Breeze didn't disappoint. Great location, spacious rooms, very well kept. Already thinking about renting again! This property is one to seriously consider. I only wish I could rent it on shorter terms for when it isn't rented and I'm looking for a quick four day getaway.
- Joshua P. from Mooresville, Posted: 11/27/2012
This was our second stay and Garden City Realty really does a great job in making a magical vacation for you. The Staff is great, the house is great and Garden City Beach is great. So peaceful, yet close enough to enjoy Myrtle Beach, Charleston or Wilmington while you're there.
- Robert S. from Blowing Rock, Posted: 11/12/2012
This house is teriffic! It was in excellent condition, well decorated and close to everything. I only wish the Time Warner Cable box had the ability to record and this would be a free upgrade for the owners to make, but overall I could not have been more pleased. I am hoping to make it back to the area soon and if so I will be renting Summer Breeze without question!
- Carol D. from Columbus, Posted: 10/15/2012
The condition and location of this cottage was great. My family spent more time on the beach this year than in years past. Garden City is now our favorite destination.
- Anonymous from Milford, Posted: 10/15/2012
The description of Summer Breeze is very good, but when you actually see how close you really are to the beach. It's AMAZING. The property is very nice. It does need a good dusting. Major lightbulb replacement. Especially in the enclosed deck. We would have enjoyed the night time more if we had light. No lights on the stairway to the beach. But other than those minor things. It's a fantastic property. We already have recommended to everyone and some are already taken advantage. Definitely choose this rental if you desire a more quiet area. Myrtle Beach is close by. Can't wait to visit again next year!
- Anonymous from Gainsville, Posted: 09/03/2012
The house was perfect for 4 adults. The furnishings were beautiful. The bathrooms (tubs) needed a GOOD scrubbing from years of soap scum. The door leading to the porch needs to either be replaced. In the alternative, the door knobs and the rubber at bottom of door need to be replaced. The gate on the porch to the stairs needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the house was beautiful, and it was our little piece of paradise.
- Lisa H. from King George, Posted: 07/30/2012
Really enjoyed the house and location. The beach is beautiful and house has all the perks that anyone would want...WIFI and TVs in every room. There were a few items with the house that need attention...1) roaches (yuck) 2) lights out in outside stairwell 3) hinge on gate on deck rusted totally through 4) 3 of 4 lights out over kitchen area.
- Mary R. from Graniteville, Posted: 07/23/2012
tHIS WAS MY FIRST VISIT TO MRYTLE BEACH, MY FAMILY AND MYSELF WERE VERY PLEASED WITH SUMMER BREEZE. IT WAS DECORATED BEAUTIFULLY. BEING ON THE OCEAN IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO. SEEING THE SUNSET EVERY MORNING WAS GREAT!! THERE WERE A FEW MINOR ISSUES THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED, NEW SHOWER CURTAIN LINERS AND TOILET SEAT KEPT FALLING OFF. I LEFT A NOTE WHEN I TURNED IN THE KEYS AND IM SURE IT WILL BE ADDRESSED. THESE ISSUES DID NOT EFFECT OUR PLEASURABLE STAY. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS UNIT TO ANYONE. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT FIRST VISIT TO THE AREA.
- Nancy K. from Ivins, Posted: 06/30/2012
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this review. The owner will replace glasses and relive some of the clutter in the wash room. We hope to see you in the future.

Overall a very nice home and nicely decorated. One draw back was the lack of glasses and a bit cluttered in the kitchen and wash room.

Summer Breeze is fabulous. We had the best vacation ever. It is a perfect size and what a wonderful porch and sundeck area. We want to go back for 2 weeks next year!
- Hilda C. from Rock Hill, Posted: 05/15/2012
What a wonderful place! It was good to have all guests on the same level. The only drawback is that I do not believe that 12 guests could share 2 bath rooms.
- Sheila L. from Spencerport, Posted: 04/30/2012
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this review. We apologize for the beds not being made. We would have more than happy to come out and make the beds, since that was our mistake. There have been 3 loungers added to the deck. Normal check in time is 3pm, we can not guarantee early check-ins. We hope to see you in the future.
- Garden City Realty staff
My family and I stayed a week at Summer Breeze. The house was spacious and the beach was right there. It was perfect for privacy and having a grandma, father and mother, son, daughter and her fiance there. We did pay for beds to be made and they weren't. We wanted to get into the house early and were told we would be called when it was ready. We were called around 3:00. The inspector was there when we arrived. There was bedding still in the dryer. The inspector said there were 1 bed that wasn't done and he said he could call someone to come and take care of it. We said we could make a bed. well it turned out that none of the beds were made. We had the clean bedding, but I had paid for the beds to be made. Anyway, other than that the only thing lacking were reclining chairs. The house had everything- grill, chairs, deck, table, etc. but we had no lounge/reclining chairs. I would recommend this house.
- David P. from Lakeville, Posted: 04/23/2012
We have been renting places for our April vacation for the past 12 years in the Myrtle Beach area. This is the best place we have rented yet. Great location, Clean property, Great House. Linen service was great and worth the extra money. We will book this one again. Thanks.
- Steve B. from Rock Hill, Posted: 01/02/2012
family had a great time - super house with a beautiful beach right at the doorstep! Will definitely recommend this house to friends.
- Joshua P. from Mooresville, Posted: 11/30/2011
Wow! We had the best vacation- we have officially become Garden City people and will be visiting again! Thanks for such a wonderful time and being so accommodating during our visit. We made great family memories that will last a lifetime.
- Allan N. from Kitchener, Posted: 11/14/2011
Would recommend to anyone, Great house, Great location.
My only complaint, and I noticed this last year also, is the fans need to be dusted more often. There were very thick layers of dust on all of the fans, and I think it was a factor in my wife coming down with a cold the second day we were there.
- Brian P. from Gastonia, Posted: 10/14/2011
We had an amazing Anniversary vacation.
- Melissa H. from Arden, Posted: 09/19/2011
Staying at Summer Breeze was our ultimate beach vacation - 7 days in Utopia! We loved everything about it. We have already recommended it to family &amp; friends and we will definitely return.
- Anonymous from Spartanburg, Posted: 08/29/2011
We loved everything about the house and the location. Furnishings were comfortable and beautiful. Could not have asked for a better view. Will definitely try to book this house again next year.

Great House. Thank you to the owners for opening up such a well maintained updated home for rental
- Krista N. from Sicklerville, Posted: 08/15/2011
Perfect location. Steps from the water and access to all that garden city has to offer. Great deck off the back. We could sit sun or shade and enjoy the view of the beach. What more could u ask for!! Would definitely recommend.
- James C. from Chesnee, Posted: 07/21/2011
We loved Summer Breeze and will continue to visit it each year if it is available when we take our yearly beach trip. There were only two negatives that we had. The washing machine did not work properly 90% of the time(leaked water and wouldn't spin) and when we arrived the floor was full of sand. It appeared as if the cleaning service forgot to sweep and mop the floor. Other than these two things, we LOVED our trip and Summer Breeze was the perfect house for my family.
- Wendy B. from Baden, Posted: 07/18/2011
Our stay for 7 days was absolutely wonderful. Great location and very nice house that was very comfortable for all of us. Would return in a heart beat.
Two nits: The landing on the front stairway has a step incorporated. The boards kind of blend together visually and unless you are really paying attention you can trip. Three of us experienced this going down the stairs - like stepping off a ledge; maybe paint a darker color on the edge/ledge? The ice cubes do taste odd as noted by some other guests; unusual because the water tastes fine. The table on the deck is a great location for meals but is wroght iron and is constantly damp from the ocean air; we all got rust stains on clothing from leaning on the table & they don't wash out - maybe replace with aluminum table?
Super experience; would rent this house again.
- Anonymous from Roswell, Posted: 07/11/2011
Great house, enjoyed the stay. Linen package was good with plenty of towels, kitchen towels, and starter soap & toilet paper. Decor was nicely done; very comfortable house.
- Sherril R. from Sumter, Posted: 07/05/2011
Only thing I would change would be improving the outside shower-a spray that will stay on without holding and hot water.
- Jayne C. from Duncan, Posted: 06/20/2011
Kitchen needs to have pot holders and kitchen towels. The house needs to provide a garden hose. Shower curtain liner was filthy (mildewed). Hot water heater not efficient (we only had 5 people and ran out of hot water after 3 showers). Ice maker ice tastes terrible (line may need to be cleaned)..we were unable to use it for drinking purposes.
- Billy A. from Midland, Posted: 05/31/2011
Everything was wonderful wish we didn't have to leave. We will contact Garden City Realty for future vacations.
