The 6 Biggest Benefits of Beach Houses

If you are planning on coming to Surfside Beach, South Carolina, for a vacation you’ll have a few choices for where you can stay. Some, like our beach houses in Surfside Beach, offer far more benefits than the others and it’s for that reason that it’s our number one recommendation when people ask us where they should stay.

We have beach houses in Surfside Beach1. Beach houses will offer you more space and more house for your money. Don’t settle for a cramped motel room or tiny condo when you can stay in spacious accommodations like these.

2. You’ll have more privacy in a beach house than you will in many other places. In many cases you’ll have your own private pool that you won’t need to share with other vacationers. Some beach houses also provide your own private walk to the beach.

3. Essentially, when you rent a beach house you’re not forced to share anything with anyone during the duration of your stay and we think that’s just tops. Don’t settle for anything less.

4. Our beach houses come fully furnished and beautifully decorated right down to the kitchen having everything you’ll need for meal prep.

The 6 Biggest Benefits of beach houses in Surfside Beach5. Patios and/or porches are something you can expect to have with a beach house. It’s a place where you can enjoy your coffee while you begin your day at your own pace or wind down at day’s end while you watch the sun set.

6. In a single family beach house you won’t have to contend with the noise of other vacationers on the other side of the wall. Nor will you have children running back and forth above your head. It’s just you and your family in a beach house that’s completely yours for the duration that you’re here.

Surfside Beach is a quiet, family friendly beach where you can enjoy your vacation in a peace filled way. Walk for miles or just relax in a lounge chair. However you want to spend it, you can spend it that way right here in coastal South Carolina.

Top 4 Things to do on your Beach Vacation

 Taking a break from reality is a much needed luxury this time of year. The holidays have come and gone, you’ve been back to work for two cold, dreary months, and you’re ready for a change of scenery. The weather is warming up in the Carolina’s, and our beaches are calling your name! So whether you’re interested in a romantic couple’s getaway, or a family trip packed with great memories, our beach properties are the right place for you. Here are some of our suggestions for what to do when you get to the beach:

1.       Tour like a visitor. Whether you take an off-shore fishing trip, or a quiet kayak tour through the inter-coastal waterway, take advantage of the beautiful landscape at the beach! Relax on the deck of a pontoon rental for the day, or get your heart racing in pursuit of a prize dolphin fish.

2.       Eat like a local. Scope out seafood restaurants and find yourself some of the Carolina’s most treasured delicacies. Shrimp and grits, fresh oysters, and Carolina-style BBQ should be at the top of your list of things to try.

3.       Relax. This may seem obvious, but for a lot of people, planning a vacation can be stressful and end up feeling like work. That is not what we want for our guests at Surfside Realty. That’s why we make it easy to find the perfect house for your trip where you can unwind. Work on your tan or cross something off your reading list.

4.       Make memories. Now is the time to put the everyday stresses aside, and spend time with those you love the most. The beach is a special place where laid back people and good vibes are all around. Take photos, build sandcastles, and make it a family vacation to remember!

So get yourself to the beach, where good times are had all year long. Read more about what to do at the beaches of Coastal Carolina, and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!                

Fishing and Wildlife in Garden City Beach

Outdoor enthusiasts and water sports fans will find plenty to do in the Garden City area. The Pier at Garden City is a beloved spot for fishing and family entertainment. Check out the daily fishing report to see what?s biting and what people are catching! The pier is a licensed public fishing area, so visitors do not need to have a SC saltwater fishing license to take part. Stop by the tackle shop to pick up your gear and fishing passes and talk fish tales with the locals.

Feeling a little more adventurous? Consider taking a chartered fishing trip. Experience the thrill of an off shore fishing excursion. Track and catch king mackerel, dolphin fish, triggerfish, amberjack, and more! Local guides have a love for the area and sport fishing, so you're sure to learn a lot about the local sea life! Chartered trips range from intense adventure to relaxing tours, so if all-day sport fishing isn?t for you, consider a near-shore or inlet fishing tour. Check out this list of recommended fishing charters and find the right trip for you!

Still want to experience the marine life of the Carolina?s, but don?t want to cast a rod? Try out a saltwater marsh tour or a dolphin watching excursion. Inlet adventures by Captain Dick?s are educational experiences, complete with expert guides and even marine life touch tanks. Learn about the coastal Carolina wildlife and ecosystems by immersing yourself within them. It?s fun for the whole family!

Once you?ve booked your rental home, start planning your vacation activities. If you?re craving an ocean adventure, then Garden City beach is the right place for you!
