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.

IR house presents the perfect mix of modern amenities and beach house charm of when we were children. Property description was spot on. Would rent this again because it feels like home, our house.

My extended family and I had a great time here. We had ages ranging from 4-79, and everyone loved it, though the stairs were hard on some of them. All living areas are on the upper level, as is typical of the area. The older teens loved the ground level rooms with easy access to the outdoors.
We usually stay closer to the pier, but moved south in search of better fishing. We were not disappointed- plenty of crab, a flounder and a few others. We rented kayaks which we were able to use straight from the dock and the beach this far south is less crowded. Beach access is right across the street and very convenient. It was my in-laws' first time visiting, and she loved watching the inlet in the mornings. (Honestly, one of my favorite things, as well.) We had fantastic views of the inlet, and also an ok view of the ocean on the other side.
The kitchen was in great shape and well stocked, there were ceiling fans everywhere and room AC units in some areas, as well as overall AC. On a hot week, we were very comfortable.
The living room furniture was not super comfortable- low chairs and such. The beds were old and creaky, but we slept better than expected. The covered outdoor area (under the house) was fantastic, with plenty of tables in the shade.
I would absolutely stay here again. If you haven't been to Garden City before- I'd recommend a golf cart so you can have easy access to everything up by the pier (where all the excitement happens)and a life jacket for any little one who will be near the dock. It's deep and there is a current.
The only complaint I had was the lack of extra blankets. They provided plenty of towels and sheets. However, the futon came with sheets but no actual blanket. My dad in law needs to sleep in a recliner and we had trouble finding a blanket for him to use.
All in all, a great place with good fishing.

We enjoyed our visit at the IR House in Garden City. The house was comfortable and especially great for us because of its location on the creek and closeness to the beach. Beautiful sunsets from the back deck!
