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.
I love that you do not have to cross a street to get to the beach and that several family-friendly restaurants are within easy walking distance. I also enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs on the deck, where you have a view of the ocean. In the afternoon, most of the porch is shaded, but those wanting to get a little more sun in the late afternoon can do so from the southern portion of the porch.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
We absolutely loved our stay at Portofino lll 321A. The property description was exactly as described and it was clean and well-maintained. The house was very homey and you couldn’t have asked for a better location. Lots of good restaurants close by. Our two favorites were Poppy’s and Lee’s Inlet Kitchen. Poppy’s had great burgers and sandwiches and you have to try the fried Oreos. OMG! Lee’s Inlet Kitchen at Murrells Inlet had the best seafood that I’ve ever had. This was our first time staying at Surfside Beach and using Garden City Realty and it was an excellent experience. I can’t wait to go back and I’ll definitely use Garden City Realty again.

This Portofino beach home easily accommodated our group of 7 for the week. Each of the 4 bedrooms has its own bathroom, which was a huge bonus. The kitchen and living area were well-stocked with all of your vacation needs. We loved the quiet Surfside Beach location because it is very quiet, safe and family-oriented. We spent our days resting on the porch, enjoying the community pool, and relaxing on the beach. The private beach access was easy and convenient for our guests to come and go on their own schedule. We loved the wide beach area, cleanliness of the home and Surfside Beach, and the amenities of covered, private parking, and outdoor beach showers and a charcoal grill at our unit. We will definitely return to rent here again and will recommend the home/area to anyone.
