We found this rental on line and just couldn't resist the idea of ocean front with a corner deck that also looked up the beach to the pier of Surfside Beach. It sounded so good that I was afraid it might have been misrepresented, or maybe just too cramped for our 6 adults and two children. NO need to worry. This condo is even better than described. Room sizes are comfortable, beds are comfortable, there is plenty of closet and storage space, and the layout couldn't be better. One plus that isn't clear from the listing is that both bathrooms are full-sized with bathtubs. The deck is large enough for five adults and two bikes....and the view from sunrise until bedtime is spectacular.
It was a joy to walk out the back door and down the building's private boardwalk right onto the beach. It is a quiet, family-oriented beach, good because of the two little girls in our family. It was a relief to stay in a very clean, well-appointed home with plenty of kitchen equipment, up-to-date appliances, and decent linens with beds already made when we arrived!
Booking, check-in and check-out were all easy, although it would have been nice to know that our condo was ready for us early. We wasted two hours thinking we couldn't get keys until 4. So in spite of the instructions, it may pay to show up for the keys early, just in case you're lucky!
We were all very, very happy here. And we were sad to leave. Signs of a great, stress-free vacation!
