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 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.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
We really enjoyed our vacation stay at Driftwood. We were a large family group and spent the week of Thanksgiving in Garden City. The kitchen in Driftwood was very well stocked--we were able to prepare a huge traditional Thanksgiving meal. I don't think there was a utensil we needed that wasn't there. The extra refrigerator sure came in handy too. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean, lots of bathrooms for everyone, extra blankets for the chilly nights, and enough TVs to allow TV watching as well as video game playing. Everything was just as pictured. We fell in love with that huge hot tub, and had no problem keeping it warm. While the weather in November was cool, as you would expect, the heated pool even allowed us to swim a couple of bright sunny days. And those rockers!! Sunrise and mornings on that deck, in those rockers, and that view, just spectacular! Some of our group preferred the close proximity of all the options at Myrtle Beach and Broadway at the Beach while others enjoyed the quieter waterfront restaurants at Murrell's Inlet. We also visited Brookgreen Gardens which were absolutely beautiful. Overall, a really great beach vacation at a time we don't usually go to the beach. We definitely recommended Driftwood and Garden City Realty.

Beautiful beach home! Lots of fine amenities! Lovely decor, clean, spacious. Great pool and hot tub! Right on the beach! Only issue was that it was biker week and the house sits on a busy road. It was very noisy and we will make sure we do not go during that week again! Otherwise it was Great!!

My family and I have stayed in the Garden City location for 29 years in a row. We have stayed in multiple house with multiple realtors. Our stay was one of if not the best experience to date. This was our first stay at Driftwood and the location, cleanliness, accommodations and variety of amenities were awesome! We had a few minor SNAFU's but they were handled immediately with total satisfaction. We would recommend this rental exclusively! We will certainly be back. The only complaint was the main floor bedroom with the two single beds were very uncomfortable with very thin mattresses.
