The area is like its own little town. You have to try the italian ice on the pier! I will warn you that because the beach is near the pier, you will probably have several shark sightings. There was also someone setting off fireworks every night, but we were there during senior week. When we went to check in, we had to wait like an hour to get our key. This might have been because of COVID though. Overall, we had a great time!

You could not ask for a better location. This house is literally a block from the beach access area, and in my opinion, the most beautiful house on the block. The rooms are spacious. The showers were a little difficult for us given that my family height ranges from 5'8" to 6'2" for the adults, but we managed. If your family is shorter, you will be fine. The shower outside is amazing though. The pool is well kept, and we actually had a visitor in there one morning... a crab! Don't worry, we returned it to its home.

very pleased over all... the stairs had a small place where a rail was loose and they were not clean but over all a great house

Our family vacation was wonderful. The VIP House has the perfect location! We could walk to the pier, get ice cream, ride the golf cart to the Kroger and beach access was just a hop, skip and a jump away. The baby pool was a life saver with toddlers! Parking was perfect for 7 cars and a trailer. Even though the house was not ready until 5 pm, it was clean and well maintained. Garden Realty took care of any need we had promptly and made our vacation seamless. I absolutely would recommend this property and plan on staying there again.

House was great. No issues. Pool was great for anyone of any age, but the kiddie pool was particularly nice for small children. Plenty of room for parking. My family and I would definatly stay here again.

VIP House is located across the street from the beach between two beach access points and easy walking distance from all the shops and restaurants in Garden City Beach. The house is large, well planned and you get a view of the ocean from the front of the house. We had issues with the dryer and maintenance took care of it within 48 hours. However, when we arrived we had to vacuum all the bedroom floors to get up the sand that was not cleaned up prior to arrival and there were cigarette butts on the ground at the outdoor picnic table. The pool is nice, but there is a large scummy puddle next to it caused by the condensation drains from the A/C units and the outdoor shower area that has no drain. The front master bedrooms are hard to cool due to all the windows and you are warned that the A/C units will freeze up and stop working if set below 72 degrees so those rooms remain warm.

Overall the house was beautiful. The shower/tubs in the master bath could stand updating. The bath tub was narrow and there was no place to put shampoo, conditioner or razor and barely enough room for a bar of soap. BUT, not a deal killer. The double sinks were nice and convenient. Loved the close proximity to the pier and beach shops plus getting to Hwy 17 was close. The pool addition was really nice. I was there with 2 of my college age daughters, my sister and her husband and my mother and we were all comfortable. We will definitely stay again next summer.

Everything was very nice, it was very convenient to everything we wanted to go see and do. The pool was great, I wish there had been a net so we could have gotten leaves and other small debris out of it easily.

House was perfect -- location, bedrooms, kitchen, seating area -- loved everything about it

My family really enjoyed our stay at the VIP House. The floor plan is wonderful for 2 families, because there are 2 master bedrooms and the balcony can serve as another living space upstairs. The house is located so near to the pier that it gives young teens the freedom to walk to the arcade and eating places. The furnishings were very nice. My only suggestion would be to fix the dryer. It took several cycles to dry clothes. However, it was still one of the best vacations we have ever had. Thanks GC Realty and VIP House!

The VIP house is perfect for a beach getaway. The living area has ample room for guests and very comfy furniture. Loved the open concept with kitchen and eating too. The house was clean and comfortable for our family of 9. Location couldn't have been better either, steps from the beach, and a quick ride to restaurants, bars and shopping.

The only complaint (and it is very small) was there were large "palmetto bugs" that would come in the house occasionally. We killed them, but we were all women and really afraid of them. Other than that, it was a perfect place to vacation.

This property is very spacious and close to all the action. There is plenty of parking underneath the house, Public beach access was a short walk. The kitchen is lacking plastic storage containers and the house would benefit from a deep cleaning but this didn't keep us from enjoying our stay and having a great family vacation.

This is a great house, however, I thought that it could have been cleaned better, bathrooms and floors needed a lot of extra "TLC". Also, the website shows that the carpet was replaced in 2011, however, there were large stains throughout the house.
