Great week at the beach!
A Guest from Concord, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2020

We had a great week at the beach. The location was awesome - such a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed having a private pool. It was great to be able to bring our dogs, too.

12 people.....7 days!
A Guest from Cynthiana, KY recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2020

Better twin is in an ideal location for beach access! It is literally 1/2 block from the beach! We also used our pool a LOT! Although not necessary, we did rent a golf cart for the week, and other than first-day grocery shopping, we used it for all of our other running. This property was super clean and accommodated our group comfortably. Some suggestions for the owners: the patio furniture on the main level front porch needs replacing. 2 chairs are literally falling apart. Vertical blinds in the upstairs bedroom that has the balcony also need to be replaced. They seem to be warped and will not turn which prevented any privacy and made for a very hot room when the sun was shining in. The patio table poolside should be replaced as it has quite a bit of rust. It would have also been nice to have chairs around that table. There were several lounge chairs poolside, but only 1 upright chair which made it difficult to eat meals outside. Property is a little dated, however very clean and well stocked. We would stay here again.

First beach house experience!
Misty C. from Narrows, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2019

First time in a surfside and we loved it!

We loved having our own pool (we typically stay in condos)
I like to lay in the sun so the amount of shade the pool gets from the tree is a negative for me but my husband liked it!

We really enjoyed the location and we rented a golf cart to enjoy and I would definitely recommend that!
All in all the home was nice and the location was great (first time not being ocean front and didn’t really mind) honestly the walk to the beach was just as quick as getting on an elevator and walking through everything at the condos!

Family and friend vacation
A Guest from Columbus, OH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2019

We had a group of ten and this house had plenty of room, clean, and great location. My family and friends had the best summer vacation!

My only recommendation the one bedroom w double and connected bathroom needs upgraded to queen mattress and replaced bed frame.

Great 2 week stay
Michael S. from Stafford, VA recommends this property
Stayed 16 days in Aug, 2018

We had a great time at this house. It was much cleaner than most of our previous houses. We always go the last two weeks in August so the houses usually are in need of a deep cleaning by then. The only issue we had was an extremely stinky closet in the kitchen. We cleaned it and sprayed it several times but the smell lasted pour entire stay. After airing it out for several days we just kept the door shut.

Great Experience staying at "Better Twin" with our entire family!
Jeanne M. from Columbia, SC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2018

We highly recommend staying at "Better Twin"! Reality office staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. When we arrived, the rental house was very clean and the rooms seemed even more spacious than pictures showed, allowing our entire family to have plenty of room in bedrooms as well as in shared living areas. The location was fabulous with quick and easy access to the beach! Our grandchildren also enjoyed the private pool which was serviced three times while we were there. Surfside Beach is very family-oriented and calm, yet close to a variety of activities and attractions to enjoy. Great place for a large family to vacation!

Annual Family Vacation
A Guest from Middletown, DE recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2017

We enjoyed the location of the house. The shower curtain was moldy in the master bath, there was a rip in the carpet and the shower did not work in the 2nd floor rear. Having kids, we were concerned about the glass kitchen table. The beds were comfy and the living space was a nice size.

Better Twin Review
A Guest from Nickelsville, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2017

First time renting through Garden City Realty - the experience was great. The staff was friendly & helpful. We arrived early and the house was ready, so we didn't have a wait. The location of the house is perfect, it's just a short walk to the beach. There was 6 of us and we had plenty of room.
We did have some issues with the pool - the pump was not working correctly (it would not run) & was in constant need of cleaning - we called & the pool cleaner was there within 5 minutes. They cleaned the pool & it did ok, but the next day same issue. There is a tree on the other side of the fence and that was another part of the problem with keeping the pool clean.
Overall we had a great stay and will definitely rent from Garden City Realty again.

Great house
Mark W. from Matthews, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Mar, 2016

Very nice home. Hopefully it will be available for our trip next year. The home is well appointed and clean. We had 10 people here and were quite comfortable. The location is perfect for our needs. The only issues were that nobody informed me the hot tub was not working at all and the pool wasn't cleaned until the afternoon before we checked out.

Erica E. from Germantown, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2015

We rent the same house every year for the same week and we love it. I only wish that we could specify the amount of days we want to rent instead of having to wait and see if someone rents the week after you,in order to extend your time out.

Recent Vacation
A Guest from Anderson, SC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2014

We loved the location - a very short walk to the beach and the house had plenty of room. Overall we were well satisfied. However, the kitchen pantry closet had a bad odor, the bedroom quilts need to be replaced soon, and the hot tub was not maintained. Other than that, all was good.

We had a great stay. The pool was great. It did get some leaves in it from the trees around but the pool guy was there every other day and did a great job keeping it clean. Awesome beach access right across the street. We had two little ones and it was perfect to come and go as we please. Balconies were very nice to have. Nice place all around!!

best ever
Roxann E. from Pen Argyl, PA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2013

our recent trip to 8th avenue with the whole family was perfect. There was plenty of room, even when there were 15 people, the walk to the beach was easy, the property was essentially clean although it could use a really good scrub down but we weren't letting that spoil our time. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and would consider using it again. I would suggest that the cushions on the outdoor furniture be replaced and the kitchen pantry be aired out but for what we enjoyed for the price we paid...couldn't beat it!!! Thank you for helping us create a great memory with our family...

Betty & Ed W. from Bristol, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2013

Our 2nd year in the house. A good week. The small bedroom next to the the large room upstairs we could not sleep in due to too warm temperature. There was a strong musty smell downstairs In the small bathroom next to the master bedroom...and some in the kitchen. The updates in the kitchen were nice, and we noticed a new paint job inside that was colorful and clean. We had an ant infestation in and around the hot after 2 visits from the pest control, we did not get to use it during the week. The pool was nice and clean, and the pool guys came 3 times. Garden City Reality responded quickly to calls from us about several needs in the that was a real plus!! We like the house, and the quiet 8sth street location.

Overall satisfied with our stay at Better Twin the only trouble was with the pool, it stayed full of leaves and dirty even after it was cleaned and the lawn care mowed the grass right into the pool, might want to look into correcting this problem.

Betty & Ed W. from Bristol, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2012

We had some concerns about the climate control upstairs with being too cool, then too warm, Maiantenance came and adjusted. The kitchen utensils need an update for use in cooking. Could use more baking dishes for use. the carpet throughout the house really needs to be cleaned. The pool wall nearest the hotub needs to be repaired. We had a great week week and enjoyed the house with our family. We would be interested in getting this house again next summer.

The place could have been cleaner. The only other concern was the air conditioning. The second bedroom with two queen beds and the third bedroom with a double bed were the warmest rooms in the place. It was uncomfortable during the day.

Mark P. from Roanoke, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2012

We had a great stay. A few minor things (flooding for broken washer, cabels missing, hidden enpty beer bottles) when we first arrived were handled quickly by the realty staff. After that our vacation was fun in the sun at a great beach house. Every bed was confortable, there was plenty of living space for our group of 15 and we always found plenty of space on the beach. We will definately be returning here soon.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Great location and adequate facility. The property needs a good cleaning, especially carpet and tile floors. Stairwell and hallway are dark. Never saw anyone come to clean the pool or hot tub.
A Guest from Blythewood, SC does not recommend this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2011

Judy Walton was abosolutely terrific. I called a week in advance of our our trip with questions as a result of bad reviews regarding cleanliness and inadequate air conditioning. Judy responded, probably beyond her responsibilities, and visited the condo personnally to confirm that the AC had been repaired and was working properly. She also scheduled a cleaning for the carpet and had some new glasses and skillets placed in the unit to ensure an adequate compliment of cookware and table ware. She was very cordial...a real jewel!!

A Guest from Springfield, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2011

Garden City Realty was very helpful in reserving the property and getting us checked in quickly. The property was clean and comfortable. Location was great and our family felt at home. The only bad comment I have is that the pool and jacuzzi should of been cleaned more than once during the week. The wind brought many leaves and other things into the pool on a daily basis. Also, a suggestion to the owners would be that having WIFI to connect during the stay would of been a great benefit.
