The surf master is a great place to stay. The condo unit 511 is very nicely decorated and updated. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the balcony and also the 2 chairs inside that give a great view when weather doesn’t permit being on the balcony. We would definitely recommend a stay here.
- Georgia B. from Dunkirk, Posted: 05/24/2021
Views are always amazing, staff is always excellent. This condo was not as nice as other units we have stayed in. Condo very clean. Finishes in this unit needed repaired. TV's are all very complicated to use3 and the DVD players would not work. Other than that, very amazing place to stay. Will be back again in 2022. Jackie in the office is a wonderful lady.

This was my first visit to this condo. The layout and the way it was decorated was very attractive. We loved sitting on the balcony in rocking chairs gazing out at the beautiful ocean. I will definitely stay in 511 again.

We had a great long weekend celebrating my birthday. The weather was cool but beautiful. the condo is updated and well stocked. We wanted for nothing and LOVED the rockers on the balcony. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time even though it was chilly outside
The condo was fantastic. It was very clean and furnished beautifully. It was well equipped for anything you would need. The ladies in the office was very nice and helpful with all we needed. Special thank you to Pam and Jackie. I will be returning to Surf Master for another visit.

We loved our stay. The condo was clean. We loved the sitting area by the window on the cooler days. The rocking chairs on the balcony were nice for morning coffee or just taking in the view. The check in process was so easy, I got a text when the room was ready and was given a code for the door. No waiting in line, contactless check in. I would definitely stay here again!!

We have been staying at this location for several years. We could not be more pleased with the management and the facilities. Just a great placed to spend a week,

Great we enjoyed it very much !
- James D. from Bristol, Posted: 06/23/2020
We enjoyed our stay during the week. We had very small problems (more outlets in master, more towel racks in master, unbreakable full length mirror in master, but basically our stay was good. We believe that people would enjoy this condo.

Very Short with Hurricane Evacuation
The vacation rental management staff helpful was helpful with my calls and notifications. The only complaint is that blackout curtains are needed in the second bedroom because of the light coming in from an outside light made it difficult to sleep. Other than that, our vacation was perfect! We will definitely stay here again! We highly recommend this property to family and friends.
- Deborah B. from McColl, Posted: 07/08/2019
Mrs. Deborah - Thank you for your kind words and for the positive review you have left for us. We wanted to let you know that a blackout shade does, indeed, exist in the second bedroom window that you referenced above. This shade is rolled up at the top of the window and can be accessed by manually pulling it down. We hope this information is helpful to you and any other potential guests. - Management

We began staying at Surf Master when our kids were kids. Now we are vacationing here with our grandkids! We have always enjoyed our stays here. We really like Garden City Beach. This condo, #511, was nicely appointed to meet all of our needs. The property description was accurate and it was clean and in good shape.
- Carla V. from Charleston, Posted: 06/25/2019
Love Surfmaster. We’ve stayed here for over 10 years and never had an issue. Love the area and Garden City beach. Nice family atmosphere without the chaos at other local beaches. Unit 511 is our preferred condo. Beautifully decorated, clean, beautiful views of the ocean. Just updated the flooring.
- Jan K. from North Huntingdon, Posted: 06/17/2019
We were very pleased with the Surf Master rental. Unit 511 was very nicely done and very comfortable. Oceanfront location can’t be beat! We would definitely recommend this unit. We will stay again!

Unfortunately this year we had to evacuate the property. However, we have been staying at this property for the past 5 years. New paint and living room furniture greeted us this year. Always a nice unit. Always clean and you can’t beat the location.
- Dennis/Sally H. from Kent, Posted: 09/10/2018
The condo was nice and well kept. The cable connection for the main TV was not good. Everything else was up to the standards that I have experience from Garden City Realty over the years we have been vacationing at Garden City.
- Amanda T. from Gate City, Posted: 08/07/2018
The condo was very nice overall. The biggest disappointment the air didn’t cool the condo like it should. Thankfully they had floor fans so that helped some.
- Carla V. from Charleston, Posted: 06/18/2018
We are never disappointed in our stay at Surfmaster by the Sea. This is our favorite condo. Loved the new paint and furniture. Great place to relax. Clean, well furnished. I would not change a thing.
- Linda L. from Muncy, Posted: 03/03/2018
Would definitely stay here again. Location is PERFECT!
- Mary S. from Blountville, Posted: 10/09/2017
Property was clean and well-furnished with a beautiful view of the beach. Beds were comfortable as well as the sofa and chairs in the living room. We especially enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the balcony in the evenings. We are definitely interested in staying in Unit 511 again in 2018. We have always had positive experiences with Garden City Realty.

- Donald A. from Wolcott, Posted: 08/28/2017
The only issue I had was the bed did not suit me so I had a harder than usual time sleeping. Everything else was perfect.
- Debbie F. from Murrells Inlet, Posted: 05/30/2017
We have been vacationing in Murrells Inlet for approximately 6 years and have always used GCR, wouldn't use anyone else. We arrived earlier than expected and the Staff went out of their way to get the unit ready for use. We always stay at Surf Master, this was our first stay in this Unit and I was very pleased with the décor, the comfort, everything about it. We had an issue with the kitchen sink leaking and it took several days for them to fix it, but that was it. Would highly recommend this unit. Weather completely cooperated too!!!
- Anonymous from Bowling Green, Posted: 03/17/2017
This was our third year staying at 511 Surfmaster. We really like the area and location of the property. Being able to be right on the ocean is fabulous. While the unit is acceptable, it is starting to show some serious wear and tear and needs some TLC (e.g. Bathroom and kitchen updates, painting, etc.).
- Dennis/Sally H. from Kent, Posted: 09/12/2016
Really enjoyed the facilities and pool and Beach.
- Nikki B. from Greenville, Posted: 09/06/2016
Rented this unit before and love it! That is why I came back and because of the very friendly staff

- Patricia B. from Bristol, Posted: 06/27/2016
Beautiful condo. This unit was decorated beautifully! Our only complaint was we were misled to think we were in the same building on 5th floor. We were in separate buildings as a family of 13.v
- Carla V. from Charleston, Posted: 06/13/2016
Very modern and beautifully decorated unit. The views from the living room and bedroom windows are phenomenal. Loved the rocking chairs on the balcony. We always stay at Surfmaster but this is our favorite condo yet. Nice quiet location and friendly staff.
- Anonymous from Greencastle, Posted: 06/13/2016
Nice time, convenient for families. Reconditioned and updated but can tell it takes a beating from being directly oceanfront. Master bath felt small. Maybe install a bowed curtain rod to decrease cramped feel in shower. Comfortable accommodations otherwise. Wonderful view from master bedroom
- Anonymous from Cobleskill, Posted: 05/16/2016
We have been staying at the Surfmaster on and off for twenty years and this was the best condo we have ever rented Comfortable furniture, nice chairs on balpcony and kitchen well equipped
- Nikki B. from Greenville, Posted: 04/19/2016
I enjoyed my stay in this beautiful condo! It was clean and the kitchen supplied everything that was needed! The view was magnificent and the ocean was seen easily inside! The balcony also provided plenty of room to sit, chat and be comfortable! It being in the corner also made it more private and quieter! I would love to have this same condo on my next visit as I loved the light bright colors, very cheerful!

It was excellent except for a few rainy days in the beginning.
The rocking chairs on the deck we're great.
Overall we had a great time the weather was nice the only complaint was the wet dog smell in the elevators
- Glenn T. from Greer, Posted: 10/12/2015
The room was in very good condition except for the floor fans which need to be cleaned.
- Ann H. from Okatie, Posted: 09/21/2015
My husband and I along with his brother and wife have been coming to Garden City for a lot of years. Last year was our first time at Surfmaster. It is a beautiful unit. The balcony is huge. Right on the water. Beautiful sunrises. We came back this year and were not disappointed. The owners had replaced the outdoor furniture with rocking chairs. The living room sofa could be replaced, but aside from that no complaints.

The place was great. It was a beautiful view of the ocean and loved the rocking chairs on the balcony. Nice clean and spacey.
- Margaret W. from New Castle, Posted: 09/07/2015
We have been vacationing in the area for 30 years and this is one of our favorite condos. The room was large,clean and beautiful. There were 2 adult couples and 2 children in the room with plenty of space for all. Both bedrooms were very large. It was so nice to be able to leave the room and be on the beach in 2 minutes.We walked every morning from the condo to both piers.Again a great condo.We will beback again!
Check-in person was more attentive to phone calls than to me. Range and stovetop took forever to heat up and never seemed to get hot enough to brown food. Possibly hooked to 120 instead of 240?
Aside from this problem, our stay was wonderful!
- Sherry P. from Gastonia, Posted: 08/03/2015
Condo was fresh and clean. Love the decor!
- Linda A. from Traverse City, Posted: 05/29/2015
This condo was everything that was promised. Wonderful oceanfront view and spacious interior. Everything was in order, clean and inviting. We had thought of doing more sightseeing but the condo was so nice and the sound of the surf and lovely beach made it comfortable to just stay and relax on the balcony, by the pool or on the beach. We did drive up to Myrtle Beach to walk the boardwalk and see the sights. Spent some time in Murrells Inlet and enjoyed meals in several nice restaurants in the area. We will definitely return and have already recommended to others. Garden City Realty was great to work with and our representative, Jill, was very helpful and cordial when we caked for information and secured the rental.
- Tanya D. from Chillicothe, Posted: 10/27/2014
Our stay in unit 511 was very nice. We come to the surfside/Garden City area a couple of times a year. This is our first stay at the Surfmaster. We stayed the first week in October. This is a good beach area. A few things could be updated. The carpet seemed older and worn, but I know replacing it with tile, or even new carpeting, can be a costly undertaking. The sink and shower fixtures could use some updating also. All in all it is a really nice unit with plenty of room for your family. The large sofa was excellent. Would book this unit again.

Plenty of seating for evening relaxation after a day fishing or being on the beach.
Will stay here again.

What a wonderful experience.
ocean views in both the living room and master bedroom. The condo was furnished with comfortable beds and furniture and supplies for all types of entertaining. It was a great place to watch the daily changes in the ocean and sky and observe porpoise and pelicans in their daily travels. It made for a restful and enjoyable vacation.

Great beachfront location. Property is pretty good condition. Hallway carpets need replaced. The condo was nicely furnished and mostly clean. The kitchen needs a deep cleaning. Inside drawers and cabinet fronts dirty.
- Anonymous from Alleganey, Posted: 09/09/2013
The staff at Surfmaster went out of their way to help us with all our needs during our stay. The area was beautiful, had a wonderful vacation.
Pool near the beach was an unexpected convenience for the kids when they needed a break from the waves.
Shag carpets felt very dated and a little worse for wear. Unit was a little worn and dirty in spots, but to be expected with a condo rental.
Dishwasher was broken when we arrived, but was fixed on Wed when a replacement part was available. Overall good service experience.
Highly recommend these units as value for money and outstanding location.
- Anonymous from Toronto, Posted: 07/30/2013
Great experience! Location is brilliant and the beach directly in front of the building tends to be quieter. Balcony was brilliant - usable space overlooking the sea while maintaining privacy from the other units. You totally felt like the view was yours alone. Spent many mornings and evenings on the balcony.

The only thing that could have been better was the weather. We were there while Andrea was coming up the coast, but for the most part, it was all good:)
- Anonymous from Latham, Posted: 05/06/2013
The condo was just great, very nice decor and a beautiful view of the beach, couldn't ask for a better place to stay if you want to walk the beach in a nice quite area. Very close to Murrells Inlet, that has great resturants an just a pretty area with the Marsh walk. If you want more action then you have to drive more north to the attractions in N Myrtle Beach with the shows and shops. We had a great time except for the cool cloudy weather,nothing you can due about that.

- Sharon & Wm J. A. from Durham, Posted: 10/01/2012
Nicely furnished and mostly updated condo with comfortable beds. The master bathroom floor needs to be retiled with the tile used in the other bathroom and kitchen. Both bathrooms could use a little updating - granite countertops. There were no stoppers in sinks. It would be nice to have a TV in the 2nd bedroom. At this time of the season, some touch-up painting would be good.

The condo was wonderful! Garden City was wonderful! I will definitely be back next year!
I would've liked to have had a restroom by the pool, it was a little inconvenient to have to return to your condo, to use the bathroom.
The Wi-fi for the computer was terrible, most days, you were completely unable to get on the internet, and once it was working, it was extremely slow.
The air conditioning was a little weak in the master bedroom, and a little finicky in the rest of the condo.
The building was nice, the location superb, and the view spectacular.
All in all, the condo was nice, we had a great time, and would stay there again.
The lady Mary M. in the Surfmaster office, was just wonderful!

I always think the condos could be cleaner, however, I believe, for the time alloted for cleaning, they do a reasonable job.
- Anonymous from Lancaster, Posted: 06/13/2011
We've stayed at Surfmaster a number of times and this was the nicest condo we've had bar none. We had no problems and the one request for a maintenance issue was handled within 24 hours. The only complaint we have is that the wifi service was very weak with usually only two or three bands showing. It caused delays in use and often caused sites to time out. We hope to come back soon.
