Review SurfMaster by the Sea Unit 1010
I will be re-renting again for two months in 2024. Working with Garden City Realty is always a good experience . Office and maintenance are awesome. Condo needs some updating like painting kitchen cupboards and having better pots and pans. Master bath need holes in walls patched, painting, fix sluggish tub drain .But SurfMaster is always a great stay !

Very enjoyable stay, excellent water pressure in showers. Master bath sink would not get hot water, sink and tub drained very slowly. Kitchen cabinets could use some paint or updating.

Great weather and great stay. This was our 6th year staying at the Surfmaster and we will be back again next year.

Overall our unit was really nice and clean. Loved the oceanfront view, one of the best! The master bathroom could use some updating - plastic shower curtain needs changing and the ice maker in the freezer did not work.

Our family came to myrtle beach this year for family vacation with our two small kids. This place was everything and more. Probably the best thing about it was the fact that it is so close the beach. I mean you walk 5 steps to the elevator and get off and walk 20 steps to the beach or 10 steps to pool. It was great because of the kids and all the stuff we had to take down. We also were able to go to the room if needed to eat and grab something. Clean, convenient, so much to do and a total blast. We had a few small issues where we needed maintenance and they were there right away to assist. And the ocean front balcony was another feature we loved too. Just gorgeous. A+ place

Came down for my youngest daughter's wedding. The condo was very spacious and nice. We always stay in the Garden City/ Surfside beach area. Will definitely rent a unit here again.

Had to cancel because I got covid . I’m sure that it would have been a great stay

In a huge hurry after already booking a unit elsewhere and not being up to our standards once we had traveled overnight and arrived to MB, we were blessed to find this beautiful condo - huge thanks to Garden City Realty! We have stayed at Surfmaster before and loved it! Our family will definitely be returning for an amazing time here at Surfmaster 1010 in Garden City.

Really had a Wonderful week at the beach..wonderful weather and plenty of room on the beach to relax and soak up the Sun...
- Charles H. from Walland, Posted: 06/08/2020
The unit is quite nice and furnished beautifully. The one negative thing I will say is that this unit is not as clean as the other units we have stayed in. I clean for a living so I do notice everything. Attention in master bath tile around floor I dusted myself because it had not been done for a while. And sliders in main space were a mess. I think they tried to clean but whatever they used did nothing but smear in one BIG circle. I went out and bought window cleaner and did it myself.I think owners need to know about cleaning service.

We have stayed at Surfmaster for years now this is where my husband came as a child! No complaints on our room except for the room was not as clean as we have found it to be in the past. That being said that has nothing to do with the room in general more so the cleaning staff I believe.
- Michael H. from Campbellsburg, Posted: 07/15/2019
The Surfmaster is the perfect place to stay at the South Carolina beach. Its close to a lot of cool stuff and not located near the crowded tourist area.
- Russell T. from Waynesboro, Posted: 06/07/2019
Had a wonderful stay! The view from our condo was so beautiful! Watching sunrise and sunset are soul stirring experiences. The condo was in fine shape and very comfortable.
- Anonymous from Stanley, Posted: 04/29/2019
the condo was very nice kitchen well stocked liked the open kitchen area. the weather was great. tile floors were easy to keep clean. I was afraid being on the 10th floor would be a problem but it was actually nice. My only complaint was the heating/ac unit. there was no way to control the temp, called office but no one ever showed up. we learned to control the temp by keeping the door open or closed as needed I like the door lock vs key took a while to memorize the code. My only other complaint it was very dark in the rooms I had to buy a lamp for light when sitting at the side table. could not see well to read or play games. \thank you for a nice place

Cute condo with comfortable furnishings and a relaxing feel.
- Jennifer A. from Mount Vernon, Posted: 10/01/2018
It was clean... property is a little older but in decent shape. This particular room could use a little paint and culk redone around sinks. Lots of dishes and silverware, etc... furniture was comfy and living area was roomy. Staff was great parking was fine. The only thing I would recommend is an Ice machine on premises. Ice machine in room was slow. Love that there is an office in the building for Garden City Reality and lived the keypad vs. a key to get in and out. Overall though great stay!!!
- Tonia B. from Charleston, Posted: 08/20/2018
This condo was a beautiful place to spend time at the beach. Very clean, comfortable furniture and beds. Never had to wait for the elevator. Nice pool. Would stay here again.

Nice condo. Coded entry was very convenient. All-tile floor could probably use a deep cleaning.

Weather could have been better but had a great time. Beautiful view and we really had good time and did not have shovel anything.
Jackie and Dan from Garden City Realty were terrific.

Check-in staff were very efficient, the room nicely furnished and very clean with a spacious balcony. Great location for golf in and around Murrell's Inlet and Pawley's Island. Pool area and on-site security were excellent. Great view of the beach and ocean.

We have stayed in many of the condos at Surf Master and have always been very happy with the units and everything overall.

A wonderful condo. Great amenities, very clean.
- Douglas M. from Roanoke, Posted: 10/02/2017
The unit is very nice! Had to have maintainence come to fix the sofa bed and reset TV's. They came quickly!. Only complaint is that the TV in the master bedroom had an eerie glow when turned off, so we unplugged it like the previous person had!

- Jeffrey H. from Martinsburg, Posted: 05/29/2017
Great location, clean and wonderful view. Great for families. We had a wonderful time and will be back. Only suggestion would be to stock the kitchen a bit more but it was a great place. Have already recommended it to others.

- Steve/Barbara V. from New Albany, Posted: 11/03/2016
We sure had a good time . The furniture in the den defiantly needs to be replaced and the cable needs to be repaired .
But we will be back .
- Larry P. from Monroe, Posted: 09/26/2016
This is a very nice condo, but it does need some updating. The furniture in the living room especially needs replacing, as the arms on the couches are falling off! However the view is absolutely incredible. We had extended family meet us for a group vacation, and therefore had 5 separate condo units in this building. This unit did not compare to the others unfortunately, and I paid as much (or in some cases, more) than they did. For this reason I feel the unit should be updated, as it is not comparable to other units at the same price point.
- Blythe Z. from New Castle, Posted: 09/12/2016
Rental company easy to work with. Decided to go down at the last minute and had no problem. Property was as described. Would stay here again. Only negative was the mattresses on the twin beds. My daughters say they were a little hard and uncomfortable. However they mad it through ghe week! The view is awesome from the condo!
- Daryl T. from North Chesterfield, Posted: 08/29/2016
Very nice unit, but we would not stay again until the 2 mattresses are replaced on the twin beds in the guest room. My one child slept on the sofa bed because it was so uncomfortable and the other child placed the 2 mattresses on top of each other. Other than that it was a good unit.
- Sam F. from Bridgeport, Posted: 08/01/2016
We were very happy with our choice to stay at the Surfmaster 1010. The unit was as described and in perfect order. We were there because of a baseball tournament so we found the in unit washer and dryer invaluable. Great View of Course from the unit! Hardly a wait for the elevators and the parking was not a problem at all which was a nice surprise because we have had troubles in the past at other Condos trying to find a place for our Crew Cab pick up.
The one thing we found very bothersome was each night about 930pm other guests had started there very own fireworks displays until at least 11pm. Im talking morters exploding right off your balcony here, not firecrackers and sparklers. Very annoying.
- Bill B. from Pasadena, Posted: 07/18/2016
Everything was as described. Great ocean view and convenient to most things we wanted to do and places we wanted to visit. Only negatives were elevators worked somewhat sporadically, one of the pools was closed due to some maintenance issues and parking spaces were limited. All of these were offset by the property, the nice unit we stayed in and great location.
- Stephanie H. , Posted: 07/11/2016
Smooth and painless process.
- Randall D. from Charlotte, Posted: 06/01/2016
The room was great. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans. Everything was in great shape. The only thing I seen a problem with was the dish washer doesn't clean very well. Don't think its getting hot. Everything else was great. Would stay in this room again.
- Keith E. from Morganton, Posted: 05/24/2016
This was a very nice condo and we enjoyed it. The only thing we were disappointed in is the second bedroom (the one with the twin beds). I would call this a "kids room". As our party had four adults (two couples), we took this second room. There was a small table between the twin beds, but no lamp (so you had to get up and walk across the room to shut off the only light). All the rest of the condo was very nicely updated, but honestly this room needs a little more work. It looked like it was an "afterthought", done quickly and with the bare minimum. If the owners would just add a small table lamp between the beds it would help a lot. Fine for parents with two kids, but I would not book it for two adult couples again.

Even though it rained every day while we were there, you could not beat the ocean front balcony and the views - without that, it would have been a complete washout!
- Anonymous from Lewisville, Posted: 09/28/2015
We have rented this condo 3 times now, I still have not seen any improvement in the kitchen area with pots and pans that I have commented on before. Also the new energy mgmt. system will not let you control the AC at night as the system is set-up to not allow overrides. That is unacceptable. Great location, ample space, great views. I think I'll try another location after this visit.
- Ronald A. from Lawrenceville, Posted: 06/02/2015
We have rented through Garden City Realty for many many years and Surfmaster is one of our favorite properties. This unit was very clean, nicely decorated and well appointed. Surfmaster's beach location is absolutely perfect. Having the rental office on the premises and all towels and linens included is also very convenient. And the weather cooperated splendidly.
- James K. from Jackson, Posted: 05/11/2015
We have rented this unit before and will continue to do so given the view and the affordability. It seems like a home away from home and we love it. the tub needs repair as it drips, the kitchen pots and pans could stand a major refresh as most are completely worn out. Other than that a great place to stay.
- Ronald A. from Lawrenceville, Posted: 04/14/2015
Very nice and comfortable stay. Unit was clean and met all of our needs.

just cant always get the room we want. got to book early.the unit we stayed in had no carpeting. we like the units with carpeting much better. their cleaners could do a better job.

Beautiful, spacious and clean apartment.

Parking is an issue if you leave and return late in the evening or night. Had to park across the street three nights. The twin beds were very firm. Had a great view of the ocean, the reason we were there. Pool and hot tub were very nice.
- Anonymous from Hickory, Posted: 08/06/2014
We had a great vacation. The beach is very nice and clean. The property was well tended to, but does need a bit up updating, such as painting and general maintenance. The condo was updated, but the kitchen is poorly furnished and the appliances need to be updated. There is security on the property, which is nice, but I found it a bit ridiculous when the guard questioned us the minute we arrived and parked. We explained we had just arrived and were calling other family members, who did the actual check-in for our condo, for the parking permit. He proceeded to write a ticket and rudely stated they better hurry! Other than that our stay was enjoyable and the staff was nice.
- Terri C. from Newnan, Posted: 07/14/2014
Very positive. Would rent again in the future. Great views. I would like to see the beds be upgraded. Not very comfortable to sleep on. Also the kitchen pots, pans should be replaced.
- Ronald A. from Lawrenceville, Posted: 06/13/2014
Very friendly staff ..Great views .. a few ceramic tiles on deck are loose. one place in D.R. torn wall paper hanging from wall.... overall wouldn't hesitate to stay again

With some small cleaning problems namely under the furniture I have no complaints. My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Surf Master and look forward to another visit.
- Kimberly E. from Aberdeen, Posted: 07/15/2013
We were disappointed in the unit,1010. It is in need of an overhaul. Needs carpeting in bedrooms and living room. Lighting was not good and the TV was terrible. We have a different unit for 2014. Also, the living room furniture was in need of replacing, but the building was great.
- Gale B. from Fort Washington, Posted: 03/03/2013
We had one of the best views from our room that I have ever had in a condo. Thanks.

We loved the people that were also staying at this condo location. Very friendly and informative of where to go to further enjoy our stay. We would definitely return to this site again as we had a very restful and peaceful stay yet it was close to many other sites to have a wonderful fun time.

Surprised it did not have ceiling fans in all rooms,so less use of the air cond.

The king bed is 2 twins put together so there is a crack in the middle of the bed. The hot water heater only last for 2 showers. These were the only things that need fixing. Enjoyed our stay.

Overall we were very happy with the unit at Surfmaster. The only complaint would be the hot water temperature. It was impossible to have the desired water temperature for our showers.
- Anonymous from Logan, Posted: 06/07/2011
Overall, condo was nice. Not happy with the all tile floors. The "king size bed" in the Master Bedroom, was a king size frame with two single mattress on top. Left a big hole down the middle.
- Earlene C. from Concord, Posted: 06/01/2011
Thank you for taking the time to complete the user review. We have had some issues with the king beds like this one and the manager at the Surfmaster is testing different devices that are on the market to solve this problem. Very soon they should be able to the solve the problem. Thank you for choosing Garden City Realty for your vacation needs. We hope to see you again in the future.
