This was our first time staying in Garden City and it did not disappoint. Surf Master #111 was a first class condo, very clean, everything you needed was there and plenty of room for a 1 bedroom condo. Will definitely recommend this to all my friends.

Loved the remodeling done in the kitchen and bath. And the new flooring throughout was also very nice.

Relaxing stay. Jackie Alston in Reservations was very accommodating with questions and extending our stay. Only concern was upon checking out I discovered blood stains on the mattress cover which was not seen til the fitted sheet was removed. Otherwise a great stay and would stay here again.

This was by far the nicest place we’ve stayed in a very long time. It is hard to find nice places in MB. These owners take care of their condo and provide a luxury experience for a reasonable price. The kitchen is amazing. The bed is comfy. Beautiful ocean front view and easy beach access. Loved everything about it.
This was perfect for the two of us. Waking up with the sunset over the ocean! Couldn't be better! Loved what they did with the shower! The deck/porch was really enjoyable for dining outside or just relaxing and enjoying the evening.

We stay in this condo every year, and it has never let us down. We are so thankful to be able to stay in 111.

My family stays at Surf Master every year. This is the first time we’ve rented the 1 bedroom unit between the 2 and 3 bedroom units. We were going to need all three for the family coming this year. Unit 111 was perfect! Clean and ready. Gorgeous bathroom! Very comfy king bed. We are definitely looking at renting it again. Close to many restaurants and attractions.

Nice area, beautiful view, right on beach and the room was nice also. for a 1 bedroom 1 bath it had 2 entrances to nice balcony from living room and bedroom. overall great!
- Anonymous from Racine, Posted: 08/28/2018
Had an awesome week. Rental was very nice and loved how close to the beach we were. Only issue was the bed and toilet seat needs to be tightened or replaced. Not comfortable at all. Next year we will also make sure we are on the second floor due to how close first floor is to the pool and hot tub.
- Emma U. from Fries, Posted: 07/26/2018
This unit was very nice. Our stay was great.
- John R. from Athens, Posted: 06/18/2018
We had a great experience throughout the entire week stay. The room was great, the beach was awesome, the location was even better. We will definitely be staying at this place again. Thank you for the awesome experience.
- Kenneth L. from Canonsburg, Posted: 06/12/2018
This condo is exactly as described. The view is fantastic, you feel like you are right on the beach. It was very clean on our arrival, it has been nicely updated and maintained. We would love to return.

This was our second time staying in this unit. We love it and plan to return.
- Norman A. from W Columbia, Posted: 07/25/2016
The Condo was very nice. The only issue was that there were no linens for the fold out couches. The room was little close to the Jacuzzi and people could see directly into the room. Other than that is was very nice.
- Eric G. from Findlay, Posted: 07/12/2016
The condo was in very good condition and the air conditioner was a godsend. We were there over the 4th of July, so it was extremely hot and muggy every day, but we were always comfortable. The king size bed had a memory foam pad, so it was one of the most comfortable beds I or my wife had ever slept on. Some of the accommodations were a little cramped, like the bathroom and the kitchen, but overall, it was awesome. Only a few drawbacks. First, parking was a nightmare but I blame the 4th of July holiday and not the building. Second, the room directly overlooks the hot tub, so going on your deck is a little uncomfortable with the people looking at you. Third, when I reserved the condo, it sounded as if we had direct access to the beach from our room. There is a breathtaking ocean view, but no way to get down to the beach from the patio. Otherwise, it was a fantastic place and I would definitely reserve it again if we come back.

We're so sorry that you arrived during the parking garage renovations. These renovations have since been completed and will contribute to a much better experience for our summertime guests.

- Anonymous from Kannapolis, Posted: 12/07/2015
we loved it but not looking at people heads right outside our window in hot tube we did not like. Very small bathroom and not enough wash clothes,other than that it was a beautiful place.
- Sheila F. from Tryon, Posted: 10/09/2015
We really liked the condo, we would love to stay there again. Great location !
- Stephanie H. from Greenville, Posted: 09/14/2015
Thank you so much for your positive feedback! We're so glad that you felt right at home here at Surf Master. I do hope that you will return very soon.

We literally had withdrawals after leaving this condo! The location is ideal, the price was very reasonable, and the bed was like a cloud. We cannot say enough about how perfect this unit was for us. Exceptionally clean, perfectly cool, and generously furnished. We do not care to stay anywhere else but here from now on. Definitely a five-star vacation rental. Thank y'all so much!
- Elizabeth P. from Saint Albans, Posted: 07/27/2015
As soon as we opened the door we could smell the freshness of the condo. It was very clean and comfortable. The view was fantastic. The convenience to the pool and beach was wonderful. Even though it wasn't a real problem, I would have preferred the balcony had a little more privacy on with the railing. I felt people were looking in all the time. It would have been nice to have a tree or 2 for a little shade around the pool. I would recommend this property.
- Rhonda M. from Pinnacle, Posted: 07/13/2015
It was just a great time for our family to sit back and relax no problems no worries it was nice
- Harold W. from Sandy Springs, Posted: 07/10/2015
Enjoyed our holiday stay. Property well stocked. Fireworks viewing was great from beach. View and privacy from deck a little to close to hot tub. Window treatments in bedroom needs updating. Doesn't keep morning light out.
- Sally T. from Chicopee, Posted: 02/04/2015
Surf Master 111 is an excellent condo on the ocean-front. I do recall the issues we had with wind drafts coming around the metal door. This was a bit unfortunate as it was unusually cold during the month of your stay. That being said, the doors in Surf Master are currently being replaced. This job should be completed shortly and will help prevent this issue in the future. We hope to have you back again soon!

It was nice but when the wind blew the cold air came through the door like it might as well been open. Maintence left some strip to put in because I asked for help with the draft, that did not work. I stuffed paper towels in the door each night with a knife and it stopped the wind from coming in. I think that helped with the heating. Everything else was good.
- Javier S. from Bayonne, Posted: 07/14/2014
It was described as "Surfmaster 111 - One-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath oceanfront condo", could not find the half bath but did find a locked door in unit. Overall experience will rate from 1(poor) to 10(great) a 8. Place was decent, light fixtures did not work everywhere, outdoor chairs had bird excrement, so I could not lay clothes or towels on them. Place had a great view of ocean and beach and living space was clean.

not happy pool was closed and we were not told about it till we checked in
- Keith C. from Drayton , Posted: 09/09/2013
I complained about the Air Cond. last year in this room. I was glad to see that it had been fixed and the room was very comfortable. Nice play to stay and enjoy the best beach on the SC coast, Garden City Beach!
- Anonymous from Simpsonville, Posted: 06/05/2013
The unit was very nice - kitchen could use some updates especially the stove. Only complaint is there is a lot of people hanging in the hot tub all evening and the living room of the condo looks right out on it. Otherwise it was very nice. We really enjoyed our week.
- Anonymous from Drayton, Posted: 09/10/2012
The AC unit has issues. Either the thermostate on the wall is a fake or the unit is to small for the size of the apartment. The air that it blew was cold, but Even with the blinds closed all day long, calling for 70 degrees the unit could not bring the temp below a reading of 77 during the day and about 74 at night or early morning when I woke up. Other than this one issue, I was pleased.
We had a small problem with their conditioning unit one day. I went to the office and a rep came over with me to investigate, could not fix the problem himself therefore contacted the service company, all was rectified within 1.5 hours from my notification. Staff has always been extremely helpful whenever we had questions over the past 3 years. All units are right on beach, our units have been in very good condition. Very good value for the cost

This is our third consecutive year we have stayed at the surf master .
- Donna J. from Saxonburg, Posted: 08/06/2012
Love the proximity to the beach. 111needs new bed, could use bathroom update. Gets noisy at night due to hot tub but security pretty strict with following the hours posted. Overall, the buildings appear older. Stairwells need cleaned better...cigarette butts & litter present. Parking can be an issue.
- Joseph S. from Carlisle, Posted: 06/26/2012
We have stayed in this same condo for the past two years. It has always been very clean and we havent had any complaints. The location is good and the other people staying in the building have always been nice. The Kitchen in this particular condo could use a little work but nothing that would make me pass it over. We plan on coming back next year and will use this same condo if available.
- Christy H. from Sumter, Posted: 04/16/2012
The only thing was that you could hear the people in the hot tub very loud at night. But, other than that, our vacation was great!!!

We liked our rental.Well furnished and equipped. Location for us was perfect great beach and close to fishing pier.We will return next year but will stay two weeks.Only negitive we were to close to hot tub.
- Teresa C. from Gaffney, Posted: 11/16/2011
It's always a pleasure to stay at Surfmaster and deal with the staff at Garden City Realty. They're always were friendly and accomodating. Some units are just nicer than others. Even though I enjoyed my stay a lot, the unit is showing it's wear- couldn't open the sliding door in the bedroom and both screens needed replacing.
- Casey B. from Campobello, Posted: 10/05/2011
The Kitchen cabinets above the bar area could not be used due to the oder of mold. The bathroom needs updated and the air conditioning was poorly working. At most we were at 75 degrees. With it being 98 degrees outside, our unit was very uncomfortable temperature wise... I did call maintence, but we couldnt connect for it to be looked at. The toilet was continously running as well.
I thought the building itself was poorly maintained as the elevators and walkways were extremely gross.
Again looking at security, the same group of kids that ran the hot tub were also suspected in pulling fire alarms that really made customers upset. Thank goodness we were on the first floor, but I saw an elderly women trying to go down flights of steps, that if security were doing there job, then maybe we wouldn't have had issues such as these.
I feel that this complex is old,but when someone is paying the prime prices that we paid there could be upgrades and maintainced better. I also believe that security needs to be looked into.
On a positive note, the woman in the office was extremly nice and helpful when we moved in, she needs to be prasised for her attentivness and her hospitality. Thank you!
- Anonymous from Butler, Posted: 07/25/2011
Security was lacking due to the fact that there were people in the hot tub at 3am being very loud. Also, speaking of the hot tub all week no one could enjoy because there were always 12 to 15 kids in there (same kids) and they would have boggie boards and drinks all through there. Being on the first floor was nice, but watching children from our balcony in the hot tub, not being supervised and no one from the complex overseeing the rules was very annoying to the point we may not use your facility. As for the home itself, it was clean, owners do a nice job. The bed was very comfortable...
- Joseph S. from Carlisle, Posted: 07/02/2011
Our time spent at your property was exactly what we needed. We have been coming for the past few years and plan to do so for many more. Every year we meet new people that make the stay even more enjoyable. We appreciate the hospitality and are looking forward to our stay next year. Thank you, The Smith Family.

My stay was great, however the bathroom could have been better. The shower curtains were dingy and the toilet seat is aged and dirty looking. They both need to be replaced.
- Anonymous from Knoxville, Posted: 06/01/2011
Glad you enjoyed your stay in the condo. Unfortunately during your stay the building did experience a couple of air conditioning problems that caused the air conditioners to not function at their peak. The Property Management company did address those issues and informed us that the a/c's are now functioning at their peak. Just thought we would let you know what we found out about them. Hope to see you back soon. Thanks Again!
- Garden City Realty staff
The unit was exactly as advertised. Very enjoyable vacation. The only thing that was not five star (and this is minor) was the air conditioner. Even though the temperature outside never got extremely hot, the A/C really struggled to keep the unit cool during the day. I couldn't tell if it was just slow at reaching a cool temp or just didn't have the capacity to completely cool. At night, it did fine. Over-all, we had a great time. Thanks
