Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant.
Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.
Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.
If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.
Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.
Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.
Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone's to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports... and of course, nothing but relaxation.

We have rented ocean front homes for numerous years for our family reunion week at the beach. This was our first try with an inlet side home and we thoroughly enjoyed this charming home and its amenities. We'll be renting this again in 2019!

Perfect location for us with access to both the canal and ocean. Loved the house

The house is beautiful, well laid our for our family, and has a well stocked kitchen. Beach access is just across the street and of course you have the creek in the back with a great dock for our boat and jet skis. Parking is ample enough for several cars, our boat trailer, a golf cart trailer and a jet ski trailer. Views of the ocean and the marsh from the porches. The pool is right next to the creek which was great. A pool net would have been helpful after the landscape folks came. Their blowers were not strong enough the offset the brisk breeze coming from creekside LOL so the pool got a bit grassy. Also, the description mentioned a 1⁄2 bath downstairs for pool use but it was not available. Would have been helpful but certainly did not ruin our visit. We have been coming to Garden City for over 50 years and this was by far the best house for a large crowd that we have stayed in because each bedroom had its own bath, there was an elevator that we could ferry stuff upstairs and for our elderly guest to use, living areas were spacious and the seating was comfortable. Plenty of dining space as well. All in all a great house in the perfect location! Many new beach memories were made that week.
