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.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
Big Dave’s house is spacious. We had 8 children and 6 adults and never felt cramped. The two complete kitchens were well equipped for all the meals we cooked. Two sets of washers and dryers served our family well. We all enjoyed crabbing and fishing off of the dock. We parked 4 cars and still had room for hammocks to hang under the upper deck. The decks were a wonder place to retreat to. You cannot go wrong with this house. Short walk to the beach.
The only negative is the stairs inside need to be steam cleaned.

We took our teen/college age kids and a few friends and had plenty of room to spread out yet still feel close together because of inside stairways and screened porch space. There was access to the channel Dock with beautiful sunsets. Couldn't operate the light on the dock but it was beautiful anyway. Sam's Corner, restaurants and arcade were less than 2 blocks away and it was really a fantastic location. It's an older home in need of some love but it was cleaned before we arrived and we didn't have high expectations considering it's sandy anywhere at the beach! It could use a new outdoor water hose (it was bent and couldn't be hooked up and the outdoor shower didn't work. The outdoor shower is not enclosed and not functioning but that could be fixed. Could also use some grease along the sliding doors due to the salt air and there were some gaps under and along the back door on 1st level but was not bothersome. The AC units in downstairs rooms took a while to figure out and the remotes are interchangeable. Cranks out very cold air once we realized how to use it. We love the humbleness of this home and would definitely rent again!
