Want to actually make it to the beach this holiday season? We’ve got a few vacation rentals that are ready and waiting for you! Contact us to learn more. And don’t worry, we won’t tell Santa where you’ve gone!
We're still recovering from our Thanksgiving Turkey hangover, but that doesn't mean we can't also be excited to get into the holiday spirit with a Christmas Contest!
Our favorite part of the holidays has to be seeing all the Christmas trees on display. Some of our favorite memories have been around the Christmas tree--decorating it as a child, sitting around it opening Christmas presents on Christmas morning, making memories with our children while stringing up lights or making ornaments. To celebrate the wonder that is the Christmas tree, we're hosting a Christmas Tree contest on our Facebook page!
To enter, all you need to do is submit a photo of your Christmas tree to our Facebook page by 12/22 and encourage your friends and family to submit their photos as well by sharing our contest photo. Everyone* who submits a photo of their tree will be entered into a drawing drawn by Santa Claus himself on 12/23! The winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card, just in time for the holidays! You'll receive one entry for your photo submission and an additional entry for sharing our contest photo! Submit your photo now!
*Only one photo submission per person will be considered, so make it your best!*
We at Surfside Realty pride ourselves on rewarding our loyal guests who vacation with us year after year. With the busy holiday shopping season coming up, we thought we'd try and ease your load by offering you a chance to win $50! Introducing the "Great Turkey Search!" Here's how it works.
- Somewhere on our website, we've hidden a picture of a turkey (like the one in the photo above).
- When you find the turkey, his name will be written above him. Leave a comment with his name on our Facebook page by 11:59 on 11/23.
- On 11/24, we'll put the names of everyone who correctly guessed the turkey's name into a bowl and randomly select 1 winner.
- That person wins $50!
Consider this our holiday gift to you! Start clicking around our website to get started.
Good luck & happy holidays!
Living in the "Land of the Free" has many perks; perks that we sometimes take for granted. While it can be easy to think of Veteran's Day as just another day of sales at the mall, it's really so much more than that. Our servicemen and women sacrifice so much so that we can enjoy all of the freedoms have (like those sales at the mall!)
That's why we were so happy to be able to partner with the Steve Harvey Show and VisitMyrtleBeach.com to give this military family an all-expenses paid vacation at the beach! Click below to watch the video (but we recommend having some tissues ready!)
?On Veteran's Day, it's important to remember all those who've served in the military to keep our country free and beautiful! ?If you know a veteran, be sure to thank them today (and every day!)
This home is tastefully decorated, has ceiling fans and central air and heat. There’s a laundry room so you can pack less when you’re staying here. Relaxing views of the ocean can be enjoyed from two covered front porches. There is also a covered rear porch that overlooks an inlet. There is simply no lack of fabulous views from anywhere in this home!
During the off-season you can rent this home for a month long stay or longer. Be sure to check the availability calendar on the page to see what dates are open for your arrival. Then make your reservations easily online.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month in the US, Surfside Realty would like to do our part to give hope to those suffering with this terrible disease that impacts 1 out of every 8 women. We wanted to highlight one of these magnificent women, Rena Holmes, and tell you a little about her story.
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in December of 2010. I had a double mastectomy in January of 2011. I struggled for several months with complications but my faith, family and friends brought me through. My doctor was confident that my cancer would not return. In April of 2013, I was again diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The cancer had come back more aggressive than before, I subsequently went through a second mastectomy,and lymph node dissection. Then followed chemotherapy and radiation starting in may of 2013. My chemotherapy ended recently in August of 2014. I continue to have complications from the surgeries, radiation and scar tissue. But, again my faith and trust in my Lord and Savior and extremely supportive family and friends have allowed me to continue to push forward. I am so grateful for each day and so looking forward to being a part of the "pink out" contest hosted by Surfside Realty in honor or Breast Cancer Awareness month!! Let's do this!!! Can't wait to see you all dressed in PINK!!! I would like to take this opportunity also to thank the family of Surfside Realty for continuously supporting me through my fight....I love you, everyone!!!
To show our support for the thousands of women out there who've gone through the same or similar experiences as Rena, we're going to do a "Fight Like a Girl" photo contest. To participate, you need to submit your own "Pink Out" pictures, either as an individual, a group, a family, a business or any other combination you can think of. Rena will pick her favorite photos and the 1st place winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card! 2nd & 3rd prize will receive a Surfside Realty beach towel & koozie set. You can submit photos below, on Facebook, or on Twitter using the hashtag #Pink4Rena to win! Contest ends 10/31/14 at 11:59 pm.
Myrtle Beach is a unique city in that no matter what stage of life you're in, it offers plenty of activities to keep you busy! Whether you're hosting your bachelorette party or just wanting to do a "Girls-Only" trip, the entertainment options are virtually limitless! Spend the day lounging in the sun on the beach, but once the sun goes down, that’s when the festivities begin! Here are a few of our favorite places to visit that aren’t too far from our Surfside Beach vacation rentals:
Start with dinner at Graham’s Landing for delicious fresh oysters and a killer waterfront view or Wicked Tuna for fresh sushi and Asian-inspired fare. After dinner, take a stroll on the boardwalk and create your own “pub crawl” by stopping at the different little bars along the way. Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to party it up til the wee hours of the morning at the outdoor bar and live music at Hot Fish Club, great view and frozen drinks at Bubba's Love Shack, or upscale cocktails and tiki bar at Wahoo’s!
When it comes to dinner in Myrtle Beach, there are hundreds of options to choose from. We recommend the prime rib or the crab cakes at Flamingo Grill, or the filet mignon at New York Prime if you’re feeling fancy. For dessert, splurge on some chocolate fondue at the Melting Pot. After dessert, take a short drive to Skywheel Myrtle Beach and take a night ride (they’re open til 11). Then, grab a taxi to Broadway at the Beach and dance it up at Revolutions or Malibu Surf Bar, or take in the dueling pianos at Crocodile Rocks. If you’re a night owl, try Club There on 8th Ave, as they stay open so you can get your dancing on until 6:00 am!

If you’ve ever tried to make hotel reservations for a large group of people before, you know it can be quite a hassle. Save yourself the trouble of trying to book a block of rooms and consider renting one of our spacious beach rentals instead! Our rentals range from 2 bedrooms to 10+ bedrooms large enough to sleep 28 people. So, no matter how many people you’re trying to accommodate, we can help you find the perfect rental!
Consider some of the benefits of renting a beach home rather than a hotel room:
- Privacy – no noisy neighbors!
- Plenty of space to spread out - Having separate bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, and spacious living spaces give you the feeling of a home away from home!
- A full kitchen—a large fridge is what you need to keep a wedding cake cool!
- Everyone is close so you can bond and make memories
- Everyone can share the price of the home, rather than pay for individual hotel rooms
We have beach rentals available in Surfside Beach, Myrtle Beach, and Garden City Beach, so no matter where your venue is or where your reception is taking place, we can help you find a centrally located home. Plus, prime wedding season happens to fall during the beach off-season, so it’s easy to find a great deal for your special event. No matter when (or where) you’re trying to book, we have deals & specials going on all year long on select properties, so be sure to contact one of our vacation experts, or browse the specials page on our website!
