BEAUTIFUL VIEW, great location, parking was great EXCEPT on the night of the 4th! We enjoyed our vacation at this condo! There are a few things I wished were different, the bed in the master bedroom is uncomfortable, and the towel rack in the bathroom needs to be replaced, the comforter had a questionable stain on it , and we didn’t use it. The wallpaper in bathroom off of the Queen bedroom is peeling. We were here during Tropical Storm Elsa, and had a few things happen, the sliding glass doors leaked pretty bad, ceiling leaking and electrical socket on the FLOOR blew, THE MAINTENANCE GUY ON CALL (the night of the 7th-8th morning) WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and deserves a raise! Very professional, friendly, and helpful! We would definitely stay again despite the few things!

The apartment was very comfortable except for small items ie Bathroom electrical outlets didn't work and the towel rack in the master bedroom was broken as well

Very enjoyable. Lovely place with an amazing view. We would stay again and hope to be able too.

We had an awesome time staying at Surf Master. The condo was clean and well supplied. We had one issue with a toilet that was fixed quickly once we called it in. Everyone was helpful anytime we had a question.

All i can say is wow!! This place was amazing! The whole experience was great and as always my time there was too short. I will definitely be doing this again! My travel agent through garden city reality was AMAZING. Miss Susan knows she always has a customer with me and my family.

Great place with great location and view. Very good value for the location. Highly recommend this place. There are some nicer and newer places but they cost a lot more. This room was in generally good condition for it's age. These are fairly old buildings at Surfmaster. One main problem was the sliding door to the balcony needed replaced. Very hard to open and close and broken handles. Most of these units have similar problems with the Sliding doors. Wallpaper and towel bar in the master bath needed replaced and updated. One of the three bedrooms had no access to the closet, it was locked. The outside maintenance and pool areas are in very good condition and well taken care of. Security is vigilant keeping pool and parking areas secure and safe. Overall we were very happy with our stay and will come back.

It was wonderful

We enjoyed our time together. The condo was in excellent condition and location. We loved the closeness of the ocean and the pool. We ate at nearby restaurants, took a helicopter ride, played putt putt,drove bumper cars, shopped at Harley Davidson and got Mrytle Beach tshirts. Wonderful trip![

It is however due for an update. The furniture shows it's wear and some of the equipment is in poor shape.
- Edwin & Shirley K. from Ottowa, Posted: 03/17/2019
The apartment had an excellent view seeing the ocean in both directions.

Best beach location. Unit layout ideal. Building amenities very well maintained. Management presence and response excellent. Visit twice yearly, various units for last seven years.
- Shelvia M. from Baltimore, Posted: 09/24/2018
I loved the place with the beautiful view of the ocean. I also loved that the beds were made before we arrived.
- Christine T. from Crofton, Posted: 08/27/2018
This condo is in good shape and has many updates. The kitchen has a good supply of cooking items. The toaster didn't work and there are not any beach chairs, so make sure to bring your own. Otherwise, I would definitely stay in this unit again. I love that there was tile throughout, unlike older units that still have carpet. It is the perfect level to not hear pool noise, but not too high to miss out on the ocean noise.
- Madeleine G. from Greenfield, Posted: 08/17/2018
We were pleased with our accommodations although a few things need to be updated. We felt there should have been some beach chairs to use so we did purchase some and leave for the next guests. Easy and close to things to do.

Surf Master 812 is a wonderful place for families to gather at the beach and even the cold and rainy weather could not place a damper on our stay! The unit was spacious and comfortable and was as described. The unit was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was especially well equipped with glasses, plates, pots, pans, dish towels, etc. The unit has a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean and beach. Registration was quick and simple and the staff was very friendly and helpful and the time of check in. Booking the unit was also very easy and the representative was most helpful in locating the units that best matched our family's need. Parking was convenient. The only thing I could recommend for the unit is an additional towel rack in the master bathroom. The hot tub was a bit too hot for any of us to use.

Experience was fine
- Pamela O. from Morganton, Posted: 10/10/2017
We always enjoy our stay at Surfmaster. But this property had a few things that we were not happy with. The blinds in the living room would not close, chairs around the dining table were broken, and light bulbs in one of the bedrooms were out. But still an overall great place.
- Anonymous from Darlington, Posted: 05/02/2017
I was really surprised at how large the condo was !! It was clean and nice!! I would stay there again!!??

How can you not enjoy a week on the ocean at Garden City. However we were not pleased with the cleanliness or the maintenance of the unit. Laying in bed we could see all the dust clinging to the walls. The microwave did not work, the sliding door could barely be opened, and the blinds were not operable. Also the outdoor carpeting in the walkways looks really worn and in need of replacement. It is a nice building but showing signs of needing a facelift.
- Brian S. from Alcoa, Posted: 07/19/2016
All and all a very good stay

Experience was fine..need to leave more garbage bags.
- John S. from Marietta, Posted: 05/05/2016
Being told a week before we came that the pool was closed in our unit with no discount is unacceptable. The unit we were in was very tired and needed updating unlike last years room 303. Not nearly as memorable as last year.
- Sherril L. from Adams, Posted: 02/08/2016
Mr. and Mrs. LaLonde,
As repeat guests, your business is extremely valuable to us. We realize that we would not be in around if it was not for folks like you who allow us to service them each year. I hate that you felt it was necessary to post such a negative review despite all of our efforts to remedy the issues listed above. Within hours of receiving your original request, we placed weather stripping around the entry doors and called Air Doctor about the central heating system in the condominium. Also, we immediately had our housekeeping team step in to address your concerns. In regards to the limited parking spaces on site, we have worked out an exclusive deal on your behalf with the condominium complex next door that has allowed us the use 10-12 parking of their spaces. This comes in addition to the overflow parking in the grassy area across the street from the south tower that provides about 15 spaces in and of itself. Though it is unfortunate that things have not gone as planned, I do know that we have done our absolute best to accommodate you by allowing the option to be relocated and/or receive a discount. I hope that these things will be enough to bring you back again next year.

January, we were cold, given space heaters (that did not do the job)and told that is just the way some units are. We arrived to chaos and construction (we were never told about this before we came)in the parking lot and after a month we will have 60 cars parking in 40 spaces. That is not what we are paying for. We arrived to a condo not quite clean with musty cupboards and a poor mattress and it has been a stressful visit. If we had not been here before we would not come back. If we could get our money back, we'd leave tomorrow.

Great view of the ocean while relaxing inside the room. Enjoyed our stay. Building staff was very friendly. Parking was excellent. would recommend an upgrade to appliances.

Overall a good week and the property was in good condition, Bedroom TV's were a problem, one remote didn't work and one TV didn't work at all
- Karen H. , Posted: 05/26/2014
We were very pleased with this unit. View was great, room was clean and very comfortable. I would recommend this unit without hesitation. Grounds and pool area is very well kept. Garden City Realty was A1. Thank you.

ROOM WAS NOT CLEAN UNDER BEDS WERE FULL OF DUST BALLS. HEATING SYSTEM WAS OUTDATED AND NOT ABLE TO KEEP US WARM IN COLD WEATHER. MAINTENANCE WAS HELPFULL IN GETTING US PORTABLE HEATERS TO HELP KEEP US SOMEWHAT WARMER. FRONT BLINDS WERE NOT WORKING, BUT MAINTENANCE DID REPAIR THEM TO HELP KEEP THE COLD OUT.

STAFF AT SURF MASTER NOT VERY FRIENDLY.
- Elizabeth S. from Davidsville, Posted: 03/04/2013
We love to spend every February in Garden City. We find it a very convenient place to stay. The weather was a little cool and rainy this year, but still much better than February in PA. Our unit is a three bedroom one which we really like although the furniture and kitchen supplies are getting rather run down. We got a nice, new flat screen TV this year which was a big improvement over the former TV. The only criticism we have about our unit and some our friends rented is the large number of DUSTY silk plants and flower arrangements. Why must beach condos have so many of these? All in all though we are so pleased with Surfmaster that we will return again for our sixth February next year. We love the location.

- Steve/Tanya I. from Wise, Posted: 07/31/2012
We were highly satisfied with our vacation experience. From reserving our room to checking out, the ladies we dealt with were very professional and friendly. We also let them know we were in a day early and was able to check in early the next morning as soon as the room was ready, which was great! We love the laid back atmosphere of Garden City.

Absolutely wonderful condo- beautiful view of the ocean, all the amenities and helpful staff. Took my parents there for their 50th wedding anniversary and they didn't want to leave!
- James P. from Woodbridge, Posted: 04/09/2012
Very good experience.
- Elizabeth S. from Davidsville, Posted: 03/03/2012
The location is very convenient and the beachfront is a perfect place to wake up each morning. We had a few issues with pots and pans and a few minor repairs were needed, but the property employees fixed them up without delay. They seem to be doing a lot of upgrades and landscaping this year. We enjoy our stay every february.
- Lawrence W. from Peyton, Posted: 08/15/2011
Weather was good, almost no rain or wind. The waves were unusually small and the water was very warm. The wireless internet from Time Warner was slow and spotty in the condo, and wasn't available on Sunday.

My family and I had a lovely time on our recent vacation to Garden City Beach. The condo we rented (Surfmaster 812) made the vacation even better. The place was spacious, clean and in an excellent location.
