We thought the unit was very nice. Considering the pandemic, we felt the unit was cleaned well. I did, however, do my own cleaning to make me feel better.
Our only complaint was the living room furniture was not comfortable. It needed an ottoman to prop feet up own. Also, should have had current instructions to deal with ALL the remotes for the tv.
We would stay at this unit again. Thought the keyless entry was fantastic!!

We have stayed at Surfmaster more than 30 times. The building has had it's ups and downs but is a perfect location. This year's new stucco and paint on the exterior was noticed. This unit was a good one. Furnishings were nice. We will likely rent this one again. The process was seamless during the reservation and rental. The only thing not up to usual standards was the wait to get into the room until nearly 6:00pm but that was likely due to the extra sanitizing due to the COVID virus. Hope to see you all again next year when we can again enjoy the local amenities fully.

I've been snow-birding in this unit for a few years. It's the perfect elevation to provide easy viewing of the ocean tides, and the sun and moon rising and setting. Although the living room upholstered furniture is starting to show its age, and I'd love to see a new stove in the kitchen, it is very clean and comfy/cozy; and Garden City Realty's staff is first class. I plan to return next winter.
- Susan S. from Somers, Posted: 04/17/2019
My 4th Snowbird stay here - gets better each year. Tidy and comfy, as usual; and the exterior improvements are lovely. Improved security system works like a charm (no, there were no serious events previously). I'll be back.

Room was great but needed a few fixes bedroom door would not close screws pulled out of hinge , same with bathroom door ,one key would not work but after a while you learned the secret to get the other one to. The fridge Never got cold even after the repair man came. The facet in the bathroom drip the whole time. Took two hands to close the patio door . I know the ad for the room talks bout the remodel that was done but it needs some tlc again . Just to say this is our 3rd time staying in 309 and we have already booked for next year . Thanks Jeff

Very nice setup...
Looking forward to visiting Waccamaw drive in the future...

This condo was the nicest one we have rented, since we started coming to Myrtle Beach.
One issue was our fridge, stopped working during night, we lost most of our food. But it was repaired in a timely manner.

Perfect Oceanside view. Near all restaurants/bars/attractions. Pool/hot tub.
King mattress could use replacing. All dealings with Realty company done in a quick professional manner.

This was my second stay at Surf Master 309 (February in 2016, February and March 2017). Obviously I feel very at home. And safe. Everyone who visited me loved it there, as well. I'm already booked for 2018. (Ask for Esther as your housekeeper.)
- Susan S. from Somers, Posted: 04/03/2017
309 Surfmaster has a great view. The updates in 2015 were nice. There was exterior repair work going on other units around 309 due to the October Hurricane. Some of the parking garage was closed off, so the covered parking was very crowded if you could find a covered spot. The condo is adequate for two people, but 4 adults would have been pushing it. I am surprised that after the summer season the carpets were not cleaned. They were extremely soiled and in need of a good cleaning. I would suggest some additional lighting in the bedroom.

With this being our first time to the Murrells Inlet area, my husband and I were very pleased.
With being a beach lover, the condo was the perfect location for convenience to the beach. It had everything we needed for our stay with the exception of a few small items that I packed .... just in case. But you can always go get those items with the closeness of stores in the area.
Over all we enjoyed our trip....accept with the arrival of Hurricane Matthew that shortened it !!!
Not much you can do about that...but we will definitely consider traveling to the area again for future relaxing beach time.
The view is amazing !!! Watch for those sunrises !!!
- Charles B. from Saxton, Posted: 10/16/2016
We were very pleased with our stay. The unit was wonderful and was tastefully decorated. It had everything we needed and the view was incredible.
- Carol C. from Winston-Salem, Posted: 09/06/2016
We have stayed in multiple units over the last 7 years and this was our first stay in 309. The unit's remodeled kitchen and removal of some of the original framing allows for an unobstructed view of the ocean from anywhere in the main room. Third floor is perfect. You can take the stairs or elevator. The common areas of the buildings (pools, parking etc) are well-maintained and clean. Cannot think of any needed improvements.
- Jill B. from Gibsonville, Posted: 08/10/2016
This condo helped make our vacation a great one. It was very clean and well maintained.Everything worked and the amenities were great. I would highly recommend this unit.
- Thomas D. from Smyrna, Posted: 07/09/2016
Always a great place. Right on the beach. Close to restaurants shopping etc. will return again and again.
Property management consistently doing things to keep the property in excellent shape.

Awful all experience was fine. Only complaint My wife and I have is very thin walls. We have stayed in several other locations in the years we have been going to MB and have never heard the people next door. Sounded like they started moving furniture at 11pm or they walk loud and when you can hear a cough then I would say the walls were too thin. Couldn't ask for a better view, very clean with many updates. Love the location as we love the Conch Cafe. Also, the hot tub is way too small.
- Jon R. from Lafayette, Posted: 06/03/2016
We arrived after the onsite office had closed for the weekend. We found our unit to be unloced and waiting for us. Went in the following Monday and signed in. Everyone was so helpful and nice.
This unit was everything that the pictures showed it to be. It was super clean, very comfortable king size bed, inviting balcony overlooking the beautiful Atlantic ocean and the kitchen was well equipped.
I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Garden City/Murrell's Inlet area. My husband always makes a visit or two to Bubba's Fish Shack, near the Surfside Pier, and enjoys their clam chowder and grilled grouper sandwich.
I can't wait to come back again to Surf Master 309.
- Karen G. from Canal Winchester, Posted: 05/04/2016
Our stay at Surfmaster was very plesurable as usual. We got the same unit that we had gotten previously and was pleased they had made a few changes. Good changes. The unit is decorated beautifully.
- Anonymous from Front Royal, Posted: 04/25/2016
We spent March 2016 in Surfmaster 309. This was our first time in Myrtle Beach. It was a very nice stay. Unit 309 with a beautiful view was clean, well furnished, everything worked well. My wife especially liked the open kitchen/living room concept.
Accommodation where we need elevators is normally not our preference, but in Surfmaster, no problem at all. Two high speed elevators always operational. Never had to wait more than seconds.
The only minor inconvenience first couple of weeks was underground parking area construction project. But parking was possible on the parking area roof, and since we had a nice weather without rain, it was not a problem. Construction was completed, underground parking perfect.
Yes, we recommend 309 and Surfmaster. We will be there again next year.
- Jerry D. from Kincardine, Posted: 04/12/2016
We had a wonderful time, and everyone was so helpful.
There could be a little more silverware in the drawer--there were plenty of pots and pans.
Also, the lamps could have brighter bulbs as it was hard to read when it was dark.
- Anonymous from Willow Street, Posted: 04/11/2016
I had a lovely stay for the month of February 2016 - so much so that I booked for next February, as well; and I hope to be able to book it for March also. The unit was very well-stocked, and although there were a couple of very minor problems, they were immediately addressed and rectified. I am hopeful that the front door, and king quilt and shams will be replaced by next year.
- Susan S. from Somers, Posted: 03/18/2016
Cudos to the to the Rental team and sales team!!When i frist arrived the door was locked for my rental. I went down to the office and Mr Street was there from the sale side. He went out of his way to help by talking to the rental associates for me to obtain another key. Justine (name?) ment me at the condo gave me a key and let me in. I went to eat and the store pick up some things. Low and behold when I get back to the condo I lost my keys. had to call Justine again, felt really bad, and he came over with another key. I couldn,t thank him enought. the next day to gentlemem came to the door that and told me how sorry they were for not leaving the key and to my surprise gave me a $25 gift card for Outback. What a great way to market. Loved my stay

Was the first time at Myrtle Beach and only the second time we have been to a beach. We really enjoyed our time, the condoSurf was clean, my wife was very pleasantly surprised at how clean the condo smelled when we opened the door and walked in. Then saw it & felt very at home. We would most likely use you again.

Our unit was very nice. It was very clean and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was right there. We were a little worried if the bed would be comfortable. It was very comfortable. The ONLY thing I would suggest would be to add oe recliner BECAUSE I needed to elevate my feet because of swelling and I had to prop them on a cooler. Most people wouldn't have that problem.
- Anonymous from Front Royal, Posted: 06/29/2015
Our place was spotless and clean. It had 2 great pools and access right to the beach. The area was nice and only 15-20 mind from Myrtle!

Ideal ocean front unit! The whole vacation could have been spent on the balcony - no need to leave the restful, ocean view! The unit is tastefully decorated and comfortable. No biggie, but I would suggest less saggy living room couch.
- Anonymous from Hendersonville, Posted: 09/23/2014
We had a great time at this condo. Everything was so nice. The view from the balcony was beautiful. I will be staying in the same condo everytime I visit Myrlte Beach. Pat was the one that helpled me with my reservations and she was great.

Although the accomodations were not fancy, they were clean and comfortable. The location was a quiet family atmosphere. Everything you could want close by and the Ocean right at your fingertips. The view spectacular.

Loved our stay! Very clean, nicely furnished. The view was beautiful!! I really liked that linen was wrapped in plastic. A nice fresh coat of paint is probably needed but would not keep me from staying again. Nice location and staff very professional. Great experience!
- Judy R J. from Belcamp, Posted: 11/04/2013
We have stayed at Surfmaster at least 2 times before. We had always stayed in the North building, but didn't think just being in the other building would make that much difference. It wasn't totally a bad stay, but we will continue to book our units in the North building from no on. The unit was rather dated, marks on the hallway walls, probably from the luggage carts. Furniture was dated. The toilet in the master bath was running all the first 2 nights (before we turned the water off). We called maintainance and they replaced something in the tank. It helped immensely but still would allow the water to run occasionally. Hopefully they will be able to correct the problem before the next family stays there! But, we love the location of the Surfmaster so we will continue to book our vacation stays with them!

View from the condo was very good. Kitchen was clean. However, this unit needs to be painted. Carpet was stained in several places, needs replacing. There were several large dogs in the complex. Several children with their toys often played in the hot tub.

The location of the property was great and convenient to other places we went. Upon entering the condo we had to replace the main bathroom ceiling tiles that had been moved for a possible repair. Clothes dryer did not get very hot and had to dry clothes repeatedly. Called for a repair and was promptly responded to. Would be nice for future guests to have paper towels, dish soap, tissues, etc., available as a curtesy. Great view of ocean and quiet location.

We have stayed at the Surfmaster many times over the years, and have experienced everything from a Penthouse to a one bedroom, and I can honestly say that we have yet to encounter any problems from the Surfmaster or the realty company. Nice, comfortable condos with oceanfront views, 2 outdoor pools and whirlpool spas...this resort has it all. We will be back, and we feel good recommending the Surfmaster to anyone.

We have been renting this unit for the past four years. The overall condition has always been above average. The only item to bring to your attention is the front door and 1/2 bath door top hinges. They have been needing attention for a couple years. Nothing
too serious, just that the wood behind the hinges needs to be repaired so the screws hold the doors from falling and causing the doors to drag and not close very well. Someone has made an effort by putting different screws in and moving the mounting point
which does not fix the problem. Something this minor does not deter us from renting again but it would not take much time by an experienced carpenter to repair the wood so the top hinges hold. Other than that, we look forward to next year with you again. One
item that we appreciated was that the unit was ready before the 3:30pm check in time. We tend to arrive early afternoon and having the unit ready is definitely a plus that would keep us as a repeat customer. Again, the overall stay was excellent!
