We love Surfmaster and have stayed in several different units for the past 9 years. We were always happy with Garden City Reality and with Surfmaster. Besides the location the general maintenance and grounds keeping is top knotch. Also, 1106 is one of our favorite 1 bedrooms units. We have rented it several times and will do so again.
- David M. from Ellicott City, Posted: 07/18/2022
Everything was perfect. The unit met all of our needs and was comfortable stay. The Surfmaster Condo complex was clean and had all the amenities needed for a great vacation. Location is very good access to things for everyone to do and very good dinning.

Excellent realty company to work with and very professional and courteous

Condo was clean. Couple of small maintenance items that were turned in. We like this condo, several years of reserving this one specifically.

What a wonderful week we had in 1106. The room is great. Bed is comfortable. Living room is comfortable as well. Kitchen is adequately stocked with everything you need to whip up a meal (food not included). The staff was very nice (with the exception of 1 female employee). Check-in this time was not a good experience due to short staffing of housekeeping staff. Drew was very gracious in explaining to us why we had to wait soooo long to check in. The staff had not even begun to clean our unit until hours after we arrived. However they got right on it after our phone calls and after that everything went well for us. The previous guest had accidentally knocked a hole in the bedroom wall. We were promised that this would be repaired during our stay but unfortunately for the next guest, it had not been repaired upon our check out. Even with these events, our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed it greatly. We have stayed in this unit many times and will stay here again.

First time we’ve stayed in the area and had power recliners. What a treat for the week!
- Betty W. from Asheville, Posted: 10/25/2020
Our condo was great. It was clean and had a wonderful view of the ocean. We love the floors. So easy to keep clean. Every morning we had breakfast on the deck and every evening we enjoyed cocktails there.

We have stayed in 1106 many times. Glad to see the owners have made updates. Loved the reclining sofa. Kitchen is nicely updated with granite and stainless steel appliances. Bed was comfortable. Balcony is very nice. Loved the new rocking chairs on the balcony. Did not use the murphy bed, but it looks like it would be nice. I felt like the unit was not quite as clean as it should have been. The floor was what I noticed most. I was glad I brought my own cleaning products from my home to do some additional cleaning. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. I would stay in 1106 again.

Fantastic! So relaxing! The accommodations were great!
- Linda/Leonard W. from Cincinnati, Posted: 10/06/2020
We very much enjoy staying in Garden City, and especially at Surfmaster. We added a third week, after spending two weeks at one of the penthouses. This property was available and we enjoyed our stay. The new furniture is beautiful and comfortable, with a large big screen TV and plenty of DVDs for rainy days. The view is gorgeous, and we enjoyed the deck rockers. The problem is the size of the bathroom and the kitchen. Even with just two of us, we could not be in those rooms together. The kitchen is partially renovated, the cupboards are old and poorly maintained; they were dirty. The bathroom is dark, there was no room for toiletries, and there was mold on the shower curtain. Overall, this place fit the bill, but dont know if we would stay at it again.
- Blaine F. from York, Posted: 10/04/2020
Very good. Been coming to Surfmaster for 6 years in 3 different 1 bedroom units. We liked all 3 but changed to see if we like another unit or floor better. Surfmaster management and grounds upkeep is terrific. Any problems we had were resolved quickly. Each had pluses and minuses. Unit 1106 had comfortable bed and living room furniture and we really appreciated extra cabinet storage in the bathroom.
- Teresa H. from New Palestine, Posted: 08/04/2020
Excellent stay, we are yearly returns. Our condo was nice, very clean. We appreciated all the extra work done because of the Covid 19. Thank you.....we will be back for sure.
I arrived at 2:00 pm and had to stand outside the condo while it was being cleaned and then had to wait for some one to come to inspect it. I found that to be very frustrating.
- Lynn W. from Anderson, Posted: 08/03/2020
This is a very nicely furnished condo. Furniture was comfortable and the rockers on the balcony were wonderful.
- Anonymous from Newton, Posted: 07/06/2020
We always enjoy going to the Surf Master property. The facility is well maintained and security is walking the grounds frequently. As to the 1106 condo,we could have slept better if the bed was supported not only in the middle of box spring but on the sides of box spring. Would suggest a main bath faucet that did not spray water all over you. We will be back.The condo really looks great with new floors and furniture.
- Robin W. from Toano, Posted: 06/15/2020
We had a great time except when the Bug Man decided to let himself in to the unit and my husband and I were still in bed.
- Trina S. from Anderson, Posted: 09/15/2019
Had a great time. Great location.
- Betty W. from Asheville, Posted: 09/03/2019
Our rental unit was great. It was clean and the floors were not carpet, so they were nice and clean. The couches were also recliners. The bathroom had extra storage, which was great. There were 2 bedside tables also along with plenty of storage for clothes. The space between the bedside table and the closet was a little close. The toilets and the bathroom sink were a little sluggish. But all in all, a wonderful unit.
- Sara K. from Kenova, Posted: 06/25/2019
Everything was wonderful!
- Rodney K. from Groton, Posted: 06/24/2019
1106 is a great condo. Just 2 of us and this was perfect for our Vaca. The beach work was bad timing, it intercepted 2 days of our visit .
Enjoyed my stay.
Nice and clean!!!

PERFECT LOCATION , VERY NICE CONDO..CLEAN AND WELL EQUIPPED KITCHEN AND ALL LINENS! JACKIE ALSTON WAS CHARMING, AND MADE ME FEEL WELCOME. I'LL RETURN THERE AS SOON AS I CAN !
- Betty W. from Asheville, Posted: 09/25/2018
The condo was clean and recently renovated. The carpet had been removed and laminate had been installed. It looked like whitewashed boards - perfect for the beach. All of the decorations and furniture were great. When the hurricane came and we had to leave suddenly, I left behind a purse. The management help to locate my purse and mail it to me. I would highly recommend this condo and this property to anyone coming down to Garden City area.
- Dorothea T. from Fairview, Posted: 09/10/2018
Like always we loved our stay at Surfmaster. We will never change locations. My husbands family have been staying at this building for 20 plus years. The brach access pools and hot tubs ate top notch. Such friendly staff.

We loved our time at Surfside Beach. Surfmaster has the BEST location. The building is steps from the beach. Love this.
- Debra S. from Evans, Posted: 07/27/2018
We enjoyed our stay, it was private yet, beachfront. Clean, everything we needed for a week stay. This is our second time staying at Surf Master and loved both places. Looking forward to our return next summer.
- Anonymous from Forest City, Posted: 05/28/2018
We have stayed in this same unit 6 or 7 times. We are pleased to see updates are being made. New flooring was installed last year as well as new bedroom furniture and bedding. The new king bed is very comfortable. The new granite countertops are beautiful. I am hoping that soon the microwave will be updated as well as the dishwasher. The 11th floor view is spectacular! The balcony has 2 rocking chairs as well as a wicker dining set. The layout of the room is great. We love the location. It is close to shopping and restaurants and very close to Garden City Pier. While we were there, we had problems with the door lock. The maintenance man was very nice and he promptly responded to our dilemma. It was our understanding that the lock was going to be replaced the day we left. We have always been very pleased with our stay. If I could make a suggestion, it would be to replace the sofa. It is very uncomfortable. Overall we would definitely recommend this unit to our friends.
- David L. from Lancaster, Posted: 05/10/2018
We had a great time Surf Master. I don’t think it could have been any better. It a great welcome with your parking problem fixed. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you.
- Patty H. from Hilliard, Posted: 04/23/2018
I loved the privacy of this 11th floor condo. The kitchen and bedroom had updates as well as all new flooring.
- Anonymous from Scott Depot, Posted: 10/31/2017
We've rented @ SurfMaster 3 times now. This unit is generally the same as other 1-bedroom units. The décor, bathroom & kitchen are original to the property - very dated. The unit was clean, the couches were very uncomfortable, the bed was very comfy. The location is perfect, the hot tub is wonderful, very low occupancy in late October. Good place for the $$ although a comfortable couch would be great. Those sleeper couches are never comfy to sit on.
- Robbin O. from Woburn, Posted: 10/18/2017
My stay at surfmaster was amazing. The staff went out of their way to help us. The location along with waking up to the ocean view every day was amazing. The licatiin was excellent. We were able to uber wherever we wanted without a huge expense.

Great place to spend a week relaxing and enjoying the beach. Unfortunately the first few days were during bike week. Lots of loud noisy bikes kept us awake at night, but after the bikes left town it was peaceful again. Room has some nice updates since last year. The flooring is new as well as the bedding and kitchen lighting. The king bed is very comfortable and new bedding is beautiful. Hoping the kitchen appliances are going to be replaced soon as they are showing some wear and tear. Overall a nice place for a couple to stay and enjoy the beach.

Generally nice condo.
- Joyce C. from Charleston, Posted: 09/26/2016
Well kept, quiet/peaceful, perfect location for a family get a way. The décor and furnishings are a little dated, but does not detract from the overall experience. The onsite staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back!!!

The condo is sufficient, nothing fancy, nothing grand. VIEW is spectacular - we pay to have that. The condo building, and pool are nicely cared for and the staff are responsive and helpful.
- Anne C. from Voorheesville, Posted: 07/31/2015
The room was very nice and comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the view from our private balcony. The weather was perfect, the staff was friendly. We had a wonderful time.
- Kimberly K. from Fort Mill, Posted: 07/25/2015
it was nice to be able to find a place quick that was not requiring a weeks stay but for the price I expected the tv to work and the toilet to not run continually and the air conditioning worked wonderfully but also continually made an awful sound each time it turned off/on which made sleeping less than sound
- Josh P. from Columbus, Posted: 06/29/2015
While everything inside was as advertised, the pictures just don't do the balcony and view justice.We enjoyed the swimming pool and the hot tub both with ocean views. I would recommend this place to family and friends.
- Anonymous from Forest City, Posted: 05/25/2015
Great getaway stay. Quiet and restful. Away from the noisy crowds. Great choice for family or couple looking for peace and quiet. Room was comfortable and clean.
Very rarely have we had to call for repairs, but when we did all was taken care of promptly.
All rentals have been clean and well maintained, except for a few times when minor repairs need to be made. ie: crack in wall or ceiling repair needed... Most kitchen gadgets needed and a amble supply of dishes. Check-In and Check-Out is very easy.

My husband and I enjoyed our second stay at Surfmaster. This time we were in 1106 which is a nicely furnished and very comfortable 1 bedroom condo. The kitchen was well stocked for any cooking we wanted to do and there were lots of games and dvds, etc. to enjoy. We like the quieter pace of Garden City Beach and the condos are well located for any shopping and dining out with many excellent choices nearby. We look forward to renting this unit again.

My wife and I had a great time. The unit was clean and comfortable but the Living Room furniture and carpet needs updating. We had a dryer problem but the very professional GCR staff had it repaired within 24 hrs. View was terrific. We mostly dined in Murrell's Inlet and found each restaurant good to excellent except Russell's. Will not go back. Pacino's Mediterranian Grill was superb.

Stayed for the week and enjoyed the condo, views were great! Only down side is if they are predicting rain make sure you park up on the second deck. It has a tendency to flood on the bottom. There are no assigned parking but that wasn't a issue. Plenty of things to do around the area, a one mile walk down to the boardwalk! I would stay again!

We arrived after office hours and the check in process could not have been easier. They really make it convenient for their guests. Staff was very friendly. As soon as we walked in the door, all we could see was the ocean. Condo has an amazing view. The condo was very clean. Carpet needs replacing, and the the bedroom furniture (especially mattress) needs updating. We would definitely stay here again.

- Anonymous from Ooltewah, Posted: 10/13/2013
The rental was very nice, although not new or upscale. Decor is reminiscent of the 80's. The ocean view is spectacular from the living room and balcony. For two people, the one bedroom unit was comfortable. The balcony furniture was minimal, a rocking chair and one other chair with a very small table and side table. A chaise would have been nice. At this time of year, no beach chairs were provided with the rental, so be prepared to bring your own or pay hefty chair rental fees to a private provider. We chose to sit poolside on the lounge chairs as there wasn't much competition. We ate two meals a day in the condo and needed more than two packets of dishwaster detergent to run the dishwasher. No detergent is provided to wipe down the counters, either. A coffee maker, microwave, full range/oven, and a toaster are provided. There were plenty of glasses, dishware and flatware. One roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, no paper towels in the kitchen. Come prepared with everything you might need. There was free wi-fi which was nice and reliable, plus dvd's and a large screen tv. The weather was really nice, 60's to 80's. Airconditioning worked very well. There was also a washer/dryer combo in a closet if you like to do laundry on vacation.

We had a great time and the unit was great and we will definitely try to get the same unit again in future stays. Our Surfmaster stay was a great experience.

Carpet was very dirty. Feet were black when walking barefoot. Needs cleaning or replacing, was worn as well. Had to have maintenance unstop tub and sink in bathroom. We did enjoy our stay very much but the unit could use a bit of 'fixin-up'.
- Anonymous from Forest City, Posted: 05/27/2013
My husband and I stayed in 1106 in May 2013. We really enjoyed our week here. The condo was clean and comfortable, right on the beach. The balcony view is spectacular. The condo was equipped with everything you need to have a wonderful stay. I cannot wait to come back. Would definitely stay in the same unit. My husband and I loved it. My only suggestion is to bring trash bags and wash clothes, even with the towel service, we would have liked more fresh wash clothes. Overall, our week was wonderful.
- Dale W. from Wheelersburg, Posted: 05/13/2013
Our vacation this year was in early May-weather was terrible first three days and then warmed and cleared up nicely. Not crowded and would rent again in May. The unit was comfortable but is in need of some upgrades, carpet, furniture etc. Heat(yes heat!) and a/c worked perfect, bed was comfortable. We have stayed at the Surfmaster many times and it is always a great vacation we will definitely be back!!

It was our second time in 1106 and was great again love the view would recommend staying here! The only complaint we have is the elevators need some attention very slow and in bad need of some air conditioning
- Sharon P. from Elgin, Posted: 07/23/2012
The location of the property is great but the unit does need a thorough cleaning and a bit sprucing up. I wouldn't mind cleaning behind myself but there were no products to use in the unit. We even had to go buy dish detergent to wash a few dishes as they only give you enough detergent for two loads in the dishwasher.
- Anonymous from Spindale, Posted: 05/31/2012
We love Surfmaster North tower.We stay on the 11th floor and can only see God's great work. Our problem is the repair schedule and notice of such outages. Signs are placed in the elevator saying what they are working on. The air conditioner was off for water tower repair. We did not leave the condo during the day and did not know what was wrong with our air. Long story shorten- We were without air condition for 2 1/2 days. Our instructions on how to reset the air unit were in a drawer. Another guest helped us with written instructions. A sign in the elevator doesn't communicate to everyone. Or a sign saying to reset air unit would have helped.
- James K. from Strongsville, Posted: 04/23/2012
Best location! Plenty of parking. Great to have rental company on the premises. No charge for sheets and towels is a huge plus. But the appliances were outdated, and the couch was worn out and not suitable for sleeping on. Beautiful big flat screen TV and nice recliner.

Clean overall, but needed updating in kitchen and bathrooms as well as carpet. Baseboards in need of paint, very scuffed. Kitchen and bathroom cabinets and appliances need updating and soon, very much in need of modernizing. Otherwise, loved the stay. Furniture was comfortable and place decorated nicely. We enjoyed our stay; the weather was lovely and the people very friendly.
