Very nice condo right on the beach. Very clean and well-equipped. Lovely view of the ocean from the balcony. Loved the tile floors although we had to regularly sweep up the sand! A couple of suggestions- the living room couch is a bit tired, and the primary bedroom’s mattress/box spring was loud and uncomfortable. But overall the unit is well-maintained. We would stay here again.

It was a great place! Fairly new updates and was very clean. The only things noted were there was no vacuum to get up the sand, no scissors in the kitchen, and the balcony floor needs replaced.
The only issues are- The carpet on the deck facing the ocean is ripped and stained, it really needs to be replaced. The furniture all needs a deep clean, there are stains and it doesn't look clean, lastly the couch needs to be replaced, it has no support.
overall this condo is excellent

I've stayed at Waterforde 403 for 5 consecutive winters. Overall the experience has been fantastic and Garden City Reality is excellent.
- Darrell H. from Barnesville, Posted: 08/08/2022
This was our 1st time staying at Waterforde 403. I hope to come back next year. We love this area because of the sunrises and sunsets. This condo made it our home away from home.

We have been to Garden City many times over the years, and we always choose to stay at Waterforde. Even in the summer months, it`s not too crowded and the view from the balcony is one you will remember forever, no matter what unit you choose!
- Jillian S. from Hillsboro, Posted: 06/14/2022
Overall, it wasn't a bad trip, just had a few issues. When we arrived, our check-in time was well after 6 pm which was very frustrating. The beds in the condo are very loud and uncomfortable. There are no rugs anywhere so any sand brought in sticks to your feet unless you sweep the floor daily.
The staff at Garden City Reality is professional,friendly and quick to respond to any concerns.
My only complaint that over the 4 years I've noticed that every year when we return, the furniture at Waterforde 403 is becoming more and more stained from people staying there. A deep clean of the furniture is the only improvement needed.
Can't wait to return again this year.

This is the 4th winter I've stayed in this property. The location is excellent and the building is well maintained.

Overall we had a wonderful experience. We love Waterforde 403. It's very quiet and the beach is not crowded, it's the perfect location. We love the updated look of the condo. Our last day there trying to leave the elevator broke, so it was a bit of a bummer to have to take 10 loads down to the car. Other than that we loved it and will be back.
Highly recommend this condo Also the condos have the luggage carts which help loading and unloading.

We were very pleasantly surprised that the unit was even nicer in person than the pictures depict. Garden City Realty is always easy and great to deal with, we use this rental company often. The building itself on the outside, the balconies and the stairwell inside are in desperate need of attention. We were completely satisfied with our unit but disappointed in the condition of the complex as a whole. I would stay here again but only in the newly renovated units

This is our 3rd year staying in Waterforde 403 and we love the location. It is right on the beach and has it's own pool. The only down sides are the couch is almost unusable because the cushions are so flat and the beds are so loud. One upgrade I would suggest would be an area rug around the beds to help manage the salt and sand that inevitably will make its way into the beds.
- Darrell E. from Fort Mill, Posted: 05/21/2021
We had a great time staying here - nice condo in great location. Clean and well maintained, but mattresses need to be replaced.
- Todd R. from Wexford, Posted: 10/01/2020
Great memories made every year. A new master mattress is needed, hard and loud.
- Anonymous from Greenville, Posted: 06/08/2020
I’m super picky and this was very clean overall and location was good. Condo has been updated and is fine for a small family. A few things for owner to consider: the sofa needs to be professionally cleaned after this season as it looks a little dirty - tried to flip cushions but were dirtier on reverse side. Also need new mattresses (all 3 BR) - they make super loud popping sounds EVERY time you move which wakes other person. They don’t seem old but maybe not quality mattresses. Blackout lining/curtains in master would be nice to keep from wakIng up with the 6am sunrise on vacation!! It was sooo bright him there! Need a couple sheet type pans for kitchen as there was nothing to bake cookies or toast (only muffin tins). Overall we enjoyed it and would probably stay again.
- Todd R. from Wexford, Posted: 09/03/2019
Beautiful updates, just needed a cutting board lol.
- Margaret L. from Winslow, Posted: 07/02/2019
We loved our stay at this condo. The room was ready a little early which was great. We came into a very clean condo and everything went smoothly all week. My only disclaimer would be that our refrigerator had apparently gone out the week before and they had brought in a mini fridge short term I assume, we called the maintenance people and they came out once and said it was definitely broke, but nothing was ever done. We had 6 people staying and the mini fridge just didn’t cut it for a weeks worth of groceries.
- Andrea S. from Troy, Posted: 06/08/2019
Check in was quick and easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. The condo was very nicely updated and spacious enough for our family of 5. We had plenty of room to spread out and not feel too cramped. Nice long balcony where we could sit and watch the waves. Loved having a full sized washer and dryer in the unit to use. Would highly recommend! My family would definitely stay again if we are in the area.
- Liz S. from Columbia, Posted: 05/01/2019
This is our second trip and it was as great as the first. The condo is clean and has everything we needed for a girls weekend away. The pool is nice and the beach is beautiful! We will be back again next year!
- Michael P. from Pfafftown , Posted: 10/08/2018
Our week at Garden City could not have gone better. Weather was excellent as was the unit (Waterforde 403) we stayed in. The unit had great ocean and inlet views and appeared to have been recently renovated. The gated, under roof parking was also a plus.
- Kathy & Mike C. from Ossining, Posted: 08/21/2018
Just plain AWESOME!! Great condo and views Will be back again :)
- Kimberly H. from Warrenton, Posted: 08/06/2018
Although it was not a great weather week, we were very pleased with our stay at Waterforde 403. It is a nicely updated unit that was very comfortable for our family of four. Our only recommendations are: needs TV in second bedroom (we brought one for the week.), while well stocked, there were no cookie sheets, and the master bed is not very comfortable (a memory topper might help). All in all, it was a great trip, and even with the rain, Waterforde 403 positively contributed to our memorable stay.

We absolutely loved our stay! It was a perfect location, away from the crowds and walking distince to a great restaurant and water taxi! The condo was in great condition and beautifully redone! All the amenities you would need or want! We would highly recommend and will be staying here again!!
My requirements for a beach vacation are proximity to the beach, ease of access to the beach, limited crowds and a great shower. This place had all of that.
I recommend this place.
My only complaint is towards the rental agency’s 10AM checkout. 11 or noon would be optimum.

This was my first visit to Garden City/ Murrells Inlet and the stay was perfect. I really liked Waterforde’s the gated parking, easy access to the beach and elevator. The decorating in 403 was perfect and the view is hard to beat.
Compared to other rentals in the same complex- the rental price was high- but the condo is updated and well furnished.
- Korey W. from Cortland, Posted: 02/03/2018
excellent stay and a wonderful property in a quiet are of Murrells Inlet.
- Karen G. from Chester, Posted: 09/20/2017
Once the elevator was repaired (which had nothing to do with the condo), the experience was excellent, very very pleased with Waterforde 403, super clean, loved all the upgrades, smelled good also.

We loved staying in Garden City. We had several beach days, spent time at the pool, went to Murrell's Inlet, and to Myrtle Beach. The location of the condo was perfect, gated parking was a plus. The views from the balcony were nice, I would have liked a little more private setting, however, it was still pretty perfect. The only reason I gave the condition of the condo 3 Stars is the paint was peeling from the walls in several rooms, there was black mold/mildew around the air vents, and the master bed and guest beds were not that comfortable. There was a broken closet door in the laundry that maintanence fixed right away and there was not a DVD player, which maintanence installed one the next day. Overall we loved our visit to Garden City and the Waterforde condo had plenty of room and was really nicely decorated,and to top it off Garden City Realty was wonderful to work with, very friendly, professional, and responsive. We will be coming back next year to visit:)
- Amy V. from Johnstown, Posted: 05/26/2017
Overall a great unit! Obviously fresh remodel. New floors. New bathrooms. New appliances. Only negative is giant sand dune on beach that you have to climb on all fours to get over to return to bldg

I have always loved Garden city but never stayed as close to Inlet before. I looovvedd it. The water is clearer the sand is whiter the beach is cleaner and absolutely no congestion or over crowding. It was amazing. The unit was just like the pictures. All new and updated everything. I could go on and on. Looking at dates now for future visits. All of my family are trying to make this particular unit a regular rental. Currently looking into booking this same unit for two different dates for two different people who attended cousin trip with me.
- Barb U. from Pittsburgh, Posted: 10/03/2016
This rental was very beautiful and clean. A few points to note; you do not have a direct view of the sunrise, you do get a magnificent view and the sound of the ocean from the master and living area. Also there is not a wine opener. Otherwise the rental was nicely stocked. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
- Michele R. from Cincinnati, Posted: 09/27/2016
Wonderful unit! Clean, perfect spot on the beach, loved the pool
- Anonymous from London, Posted: 09/19/2016
We have stayed in this condo in the past and would stay there again. It is very clean, updated, and in a good location where the beach is not crowed.
I will say that Pat at Garden City Realty was very kind and extremely helpful. They had nothing to do with the trivial things that upset me. All in all it was a nice place to stay.
- Anonymous from Lexington, Posted: 05/26/2016
We picked this place because it looked like it had been freshly updated. Indeed it was. It was within close waking distance of Marlin Quay marina which was a nice surprise. The room was very clean!. There is no coffee maker here unless you bring gear for a Keurig. I did not. No TV in one bedroom. The pool looked so nice in the photos but when we arrived it was very dirty with leaves and even a beer can at the bottom. I spent time skimming the leaves out of the pool so that it looked well enough to swim in. It was cleaned out the day we checked out.
- Laura C. from Fort Mill, Posted: 05/10/2016
We had a nice long getaway at our favorite place...Garden City. The condo is absolutely beautiful. The hard wood floors welcome your shoeless feet and the color palette of the walls and furniture flows nicely with the view of the sand and ocean. The appliances are all new and a super nice LG line. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The only downside to our stay was the broken elevator. Thankfully we're a fit family and we conquered those stairs 4-5 times a day.
- Anonymous from Yorkville, Posted: 10/06/2015
Awesome place. So glad it was recently updated. Really loved the beach views and the inlet views. We saw a few spectacular sunsets from the sitting area and balcony outside the front door.
- Anonymous from London, Posted: 09/14/2015
We have stayed in Waterford several times. This newly updated unit was the best yet. We will definitely stay in this unit again.
- Nina C. from New City, Posted: 08/26/2015
We stayed in the condo for 1 week. My teenegers loved it - condo is renovated, very clean, comfortable, pool is a very good size, ocean is 60 sec away, and beach is empty and clean. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony with ocean view and listening to the waves with a glass of wine and a book.

We had a wonderful week in unit 403. It's is all new and very cute.
- Judith M. from Thurmont, Posted: 06/16/2014
We had a wonderful stay in Garden City! Garden City Realty is awesome and very accommodating! We lost one of our keys and they took care of it immediately! The condo we stayed in was very nice.
- Patti G. from Lexington, Posted: 04/28/2014
Unit was ok, but would have preferred clean pillows, bed coverings and carpeting. A second TV would have been nice. Views from the unit are always good. Size of condo was comfortable and provided adequate furniture for everyone in our group. Kitchen was adequately stocked. As always, having a washer and dryer is nice.
- Lisa S. from Bristol, Posted: 10/22/2013
we love where we stay would live there if we could!
- Patricia H. from Johnsonville, Posted: 09/05/2013
This location was excellent for peace and quiet. It is an older complex but very well kept. The unit we stayed in could use a facelift but was very comfortable and spacious. Furnishings were old but of good quality. Love the huge pool and balcony! Will stay here again!
- Zane B. from Inwood, Posted: 08/13/2013
A very good week at the beach.
- Stephen M. from Tenants Harbor, Posted: 05/16/2013
We chased Spring from Maine to South Carolina and found that Spring had Sprung and the flowers had blossomed and our soul's were soothed by the sound of the ocean waves on the beach. What a wonderful time of relaxation and renewal. Let's do it again next Spring.
- Tamara T. from Centreville, Posted: 08/29/2012
I have stayed at the Waterforde several times and while 403 was not my favorite unit, it was still nice. It could definitely use some upgrades to improve a guests stay. TV's in the bedrooms would definitely be a plus, especially for those guests with children! But overall, had a great time and pretty nice place!
- Wayne/Mary M. from Tavistock, Posted: 03/16/2011
especially the cool strong winds off the water, We would however consider leasing this condo in the future.
