We ALWAYS enjoy coming to the beach. Garden City Realty has a whole host of options to stay in & this time we stayed in Surf Master 709. The unit was beautifully clean & appointed. The weather was nice, there were not a lot of people & so not a lot of noise. Garden City Realty was wonderful to work with & we WILL be coming back!

We have stayed in this unit several times and we have always enjoyed staying here. Bed and couches are comfortable and the view is amazing from the 7th floor.

The unit was cleaned extremely well. We have stayed in this unit several times over the years. We really like staying at Surfmaster.

Loved how close to the ocean. Great place

It was ok but the condo definitely needed updating. It would have been nice to have a start up supply of paper towel and dish det.
- Debbie G. from Front Royal, Posted: 09/27/2021
Overall our stay was great. Condo does need some love: both toilets do not flush properly and AC not quite right.

Have stayed in unit 709 for several years. Really appreciate having the 2 beach chairs and umbrella provided for our use during the week. Surf Master is the only place we stay for our annual beach trip.
- Nancy R. from Bristow, Posted: 05/25/2021
Surf Master 709 was very comfortable and convenient. It had enough dishes for us. Some units are very limited. We have no complaints about the unit other than the bed was very hard. Surf Master does not have any public restroom facilities available so we'd have to clean up and go up to the unit which was an issue a time or two. There were no vending or snack machines or anywhere near by to grab a quick drink or snack. Make sure you bring plenty with you! Overall, condo was very nice but facility is lacking in outside services.
and each time was great.
- Michael T. from Flat Rock, Posted: 05/10/2021
This was the eighth time we have stayed at Surfmaster
- Julie R. from Covington, Posted: 08/03/2020
We enjoyed are stay. Loved the that rental chairs and a umbrella was included. Enjoyed being right on the beach and watched fireworks from our balcony every night.
- Patricia S. from Canandaigua, Posted: 03/17/2020
Other than having balcony furniture moved inside - it was as usual.
and me - perfect location and size and great
condition and who can resist that view.

This unit was absolutely perfect for my husband

Wonderful stay at Surf Master 709. Sunshine every single day. Beautiful view of the ocean.
- Cathy E. from Plantsville, Posted: 09/13/2019
We liked the view from the balcony; umbrella & chairs a nice perk. Needs a little updating. No issues for the week; never a problem w/agency.

the 2 week stay was outstanding
- Angela K. from Clover, Posted: 08/12/2019
We have stayed in this room for several years at 709 we have enjoyed our visit there and intend to go back in the future the new owners have updated the room with new furniture and new owner is putting in some new small appliances. We like having the umbrellas and the linen package included that vacationers like.
Would stay again!

The unit was very nice and was clean. Really liked having the beach umbrella and chairs as part of the package. Really made a difference for us. Will definitely stay in this unit again.
- Steven L. from Brookhaven, Posted: 06/16/2019
The only downside was the fact that other tenants took the luggage carts into their units on Friday night. At 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, there were ZERO available carts.Perhaps a notice in the elevator about this selfish behavior might help. Finally, woman who checks you in is always very nice.

- Roger S. from Newton, Posted: 10/03/2017
We loved this property with an incredible view and perfect accommodation for a couple. I would recommend the owner give some attention to the kitchen ware, although complete it's not well organized and could use some new plates and silverware.

- Mary S. from Blountville, Posted: 05/08/2017
The condominium is very comfortable and attractive. We enjoyed the ocean front view very much. The balcony was well-furnished and we enjoyed spending time there. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything we needed for our stay. We have always enjoyed good service from Garden City Realty and will continue to use them for our vacation rentals. We would definitely select this condominium for a future stay in Garden City.
- Roy W. from Joppa, Posted: 04/10/2017
This is the 3rd year we have rented a condo in Surf Master.We have always been pleased with the units that we have rented. We seem to always come at the time that you are working on the parking area and always causes issues. That is our only complaint with Surf Master however; it will not deter our next year's visit.
- Michele M. from Cuyahoga Falls, Posted: 04/05/2017
Wonderful and very relaxing! Perfect location. Bed was super comfortable and I enjoyed the lounger on the balcony. So glad the cable included the sports package although it was missing the BTN channel. Go Bucks!

The condo is nice, well decorated, and very comfortable. The carpet is a little dirty, a/c duct vents need cleaned, and it would have been nice to be able to lock the patio door. we did enjoy our stay and would consider staying again in the future.
- Marion B. from Charlotte, Posted: 05/30/2016
Marion - We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Surf Master 709. The condo is, indeed, a great unit. Since your stay, the owners have replaced the mattress. This should contribute to a great night's rest the next time you visit. Also, they have been made aware of your comments regarding the toilets and are considering the possibility of having them replaced in the future. We hope to see you again soon! - Garden City Realty

The mattress needs to be replaced and toilets need to be upgraded. other than this, we love this unit and plan to return.

Had a wonderful stay at Surf Master. Brand new king size mattress in #709! Love the view from the balcony all the way down the coast line. Especially appreciated the complimentary umbrella and chairs set up for us every day on the beach. Would definitely choose this unit for a return visit. Great vacation!
- Russell M. from Columbia, Posted: 04/05/2015
Mr. and Mrs. McGwier
We greatly appreciate your feedback in regards to your mini vacation in Garden City Beach. As a result of your comments, the owner has been contacted and the mattress has been replaced. We hope that you will keep this in mind when considering returning to Garden City next year.

The mattress was ATROCIOUS. It needs to be replaced as we rolled in toward the middle. Other than than it was alright.
- Cynthia R. from Newtown, Posted: 12/01/2014
Great location on nice end of the beach. Great balcony with a beautiful view. The condo could use some updating but overall was very nice and well stocked. The shower head is in desperate need of being replaced and it would be nice if the cleaning people would do a little dusting but, other than that I have no complaints. I would recommend this condo.

We always enjoy staying in this condo. We have been staying at the Surfmaster for the past 10 years and 9 of those have been in this condo! It has everything you need. We love it and look forward to next year!
- Terry W. from Roebuck, Posted: 06/16/2014
We stay a week every year and always try to get Unit 709. We did notice this year that it is starting to show its age. Some minor upgrades would go a long way. Overall we love the Surmaster and have stayed in 4 different units and have not had a bad experience in any of them.
- Anonymous from Canon, Posted: 04/25/2014
Enjoyed the condo, location was quite (at least in April) But close enough to hit the tourist spots. Very clean only thing we noticed was coffee left in the pot, not a big deal no one is perfect. Other wise very clean, price was the best we found. Elevator was very fast, didn't have to ride a "half a day" to get to your floor. I would recommend this condo for other couples.

This is our 5th stay at Surfmaster and our second year in 709. The unit is very cozy and well appointed. We only had a minor glitch with the kitchen light but it was addressed immediately by management. Ramona was especially helpful with my forwarded mail and any questions we had. She is a valuable asset to your staff.

This is our second stay at 709. We enjoy the nautical theme throughout the rooms. It is completely furnished for all our needs. Rooms were clean and there was plenty of blankets and pillows for many guests.

This is the 26th year that we have stayed at Surfmaster. This is the 2nd year that we have stayed in 709. In general the condo is very nice-furniture in good condition, enough items in the kitchen, etc. The master bath looks very nice but-the sink faucets are a problem. They need to be replaced. Very hard to turn to the cold water side; hard to brush teeth with hot water. Other than that (which we could live with) the whole week was great.

We have been coming to Surfside for many years and we enjoyed this condo the best of all that we have stayed in. We had perfect weather and the patio provided us a very nice view. We really enjoyed the umbrella and chairs provided to us for a couple of days also. We will be coming back here next year!!

We had a great vacation at Surfmaster.I loved the condo space for a one bedroom.The condo neeeds alittle updates.The sinks and toliets need updates.But the bed really needs new bedding.VERY old.

We come to Surfmaster every year and love it!!! Condo 709 was awesome just as other have been!!
I think the Surfmaster after all these years still looks fantastic. We look forward to booking with the Surfmaster/Garden City Realty again in the future.
- Michelle S. from Huntersville, Posted: 07/23/2013
I have been staying at the Surfmaster on/off since 1988. This was my first stay in unit 709 and my husband and I really enjoyed it. You can tell that the owner takes pride in making the unit look nice with the sea themed decorations and amenities. I understand rentals can take a beating and the units are older so if you choose to stay here, keep that in mind. Each unit will also be different depending on how the owner cares for it too.

The condo was fantastic- wonderful location, very clean, all necessities available. We have stayed at Surfmaster before but first time in 709 the view is the best experience. Many memories made to remember in the snowy winter months. I am sure we will be back.
- Timothy B. from Richland Center, Posted: 10/14/2012
Not all units are equal, as we were given an opportunity to see 2 units. The owners of 709 have given great attention to details of decor. The living rom carpeting is a bit worn, but the unit was GREAT! Ramona, in the office at 104 was very helpful and professional. Thanks Ramona!

We were upset with the length of time that it took for the cleaning crew to have the unit ready. It was after 3 p.m. by the time we got in.

This was our 5th year in Garden City and our 3rd rental with Surfmaster. This was our favorite room! It was nicer than any other rental we have had there. The chair and umbrella service was included in this unit. We will be back to Surfmaster and will definitely request unit 709!
- Anonymous from Leesburg, Posted: 08/07/2012
It was a good value but could use some upgrades and the couches need to be cleaned. The kitchen provided plenty of cooking pans and utensils but lacked anything for food storage. the linen package and umbrella/chairs was a huge plus. I would recommend to a friend.
- Erica O. from Morgantown, Posted: 07/16/2012
Great stay, was locked out at one point and the service was quick to get us back into the condo, will definitely stay again!

This is our fourth rental at surfmaster and this was our third different unit. Unit 709 was by far the best supplied and most well appointed.
- Susan / William D. from Garnet Valley, Posted: 05/28/2012
The unit we rented at Surfmaster, #709, was wonderful. It was a 1 bedroom, 1.5 baths, oceanfront with 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. Great location, 1.2 miles to pier (walking). The condo was cozy, nicely decorated and very well equipped. Loved the ocean views from the balcony. I highly recommend this unit and would stay there again.

709 Surfmaster was just what we wanted. Very clean, comfortable, relaxing. The ocean view was beautiful. Furnished very tastefully. We will most definitely ask for this condo again.

Great place, Unit 709 was very clean well equipped and had a wonderful view of the Ocean. We are planning to return again as soon as possible, best place we have ever stayed in!
- EVELINE W. from Goshen, Posted: 01/16/2012
We just came back from a lovely escape weekend at the Surfmaster. The weather was lovely, the view spectacular and the beach was great, as usual. We would definately come back and stay again.
- Diane M. from Ogdensburg, Posted: 12/15/2011
We spent Thanksgiving week 2011 in #709. It is lovely with a very complete kitchen. The LR couches were very comfortable. The condo had a special reduced weekly rate also. Centrally located near a Walmart, Walgreens,Family Dollar and Dollar General,BiLo grocery and Piggly Wiggly grocery. My husband golfs and since he loves the southern courses, Surfmaster is a perfect location. Comparably priced, Surfmaster also includes linens [which is very rare in our experience] and check-out cleaning which makes this an even-better deal. We will be back!

We have been staying at Surfmaster for years. Enjoyed staying in this unit.
- Johanne H. from Saint-Colomban, Posted: 09/26/2011
The whole experience was very positive. I hope to return back next year. Just a few things was not correct : no can opener (the only one is electric and broken), no connection between the DVD and the television (in the room) and the stove has 1 broken element. The only thing was the two sofas were very dirty. I appreciate a lot my vacation and I will return with the same unit. Well decorated and the view (balcony) perfect! The beach is clean.

We found the units to be a good value. We only require one bedroom and most other facilities have multiple bedrooms(at a higher cost) which leaves you with only a standard motel room. We fix breakfast and lunch in the condo and appreciate the fully equiped
our Russian lifeguard, Arturi too!) The water pressure was amazing, it felt so good to take a nice shower at the end of the day and the washer/dryer worked great, although I think the dryer generated it's own lint, ha ha. The elevators were quick and never
too crowded. We never had trouble finding a parking spot or a luggage cart. The room was decorated nicely and the oversized balcony was amazing! The owner may need to replace the Master bedroom mattress in the near future, it sags a little but not enough to
have ruined our stay. There were 4 of us, 2 parents, a 20 year old daughter and her 18 year old best friend who stayed in the unit and it was big enough that we didn't feel like we were in each other's way, most of the time! We could not have asked for a better
vacation this year and the condo was awesome. The process was simple to book the unit and check-in was a breeze. No complaints at all. We would highly recommend this condo unit.

We loved our stay at this condo unit. The kitchen was so well stocked, I could have left most of my own stuff at home. Linens were included as well as a beach umbrella and 2 chairs, set up each morning and taken down by the lifeguard each day. (We loved

OVER ALL EVERYTHING WAS VERY CONVENIENT. STAFF WAS FIENDLEY AND VERY HELPFUL. THE GROOMED BEACH WAS VERY NICE, LIFE GUARDS VERY HELPFUL. THE ONLY THING I COULD COMPLAIN ABOUT, WAS THE BATHROOM FLOORS COULD HAVE BEEN CLEANER.
- Stacey C. from Honea Path, Posted: 07/12/2011
Room 709 - as always for the last seven years - is great. The condo is like home away from home - everything that one needs. The complex property - pools etc - is very family oriented. Clean and safe. Didn't see much as far as security personnel, However the property is well lighted at night. Parking on the other hand, is atrocious - I don't believe that the parking rules are observed nor enforced. If you come back to the property late in the evening it is very possible that you will have to park across the street or at the public beach access. One night we arrived back late, all the spaces were taken - asked the on duty security guard to let us have the space that he was in and he refused. Other than parking - excellent recommendation.
