You probably know that the Myrtle Beach area has long been considered one of the country's top vacation destinations, and with good reason. The combination of sunny beaches, hundreds of restaurants and thousands of activities give families more choices and more variety than most other beaches… combined! You may not know, however, that Myrtle Beach has a quieter side… close enough to all of the fabulous activities, but without the crowds and traffic that can take the "relaxing" out of a vacation.
The prospect of quiet relaxation combined with proximity to all of the Grand Strand's activities has drawn "in-the-know" families to the South Strand communities of Garden City Beach and Surfside Beach for years. Located just minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach, these closely-knit communities are adjacent to the fishing village of Murrells Inlet, commonly known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, and offer vacationers a wide range of accommodations, all with easy access to one of the most beautiful (and uncrowded!) stretches of beach on the Grand Strand.
For over forty years, Dunes Realty's name has been synonymous with Garden City and Surfside Beaches. With over 900 properties ranging from eight bedroom oceanfront houses with private pools and nearly every imaginable amenity to one bedroom condominiums perfect for a romantic getaway, Dunes offers its guests an unparalleled selection and friendly service to match.
Back in the early 1970s when Dunes Realty first opened its doors, Surfside Beach was a sleepy little seaside town dotted with beach homes and bungalows, and Garden City Beach still had more vacant lots than houses. As the area has grown, so has Dunes; however, the essential character of both has remained the same. Just as you can still walk down the beach on the Fourth of July without tripping over a fellow vacationer, you can still call the main office seven days a week and speak to an honest-to-goodness real person, and a helpful one at that!
You'll know from your first call or visit to www.dunes.com that you're dealing with a special kind of company. Whether on the phone or online, all the information you need to plan the vacation of a lifetime is readily available and easy to access. Dunes' Guest Service Coordinators have a knack for matching people with places, and the website is designed with you in mind. From multiple pictures of each property to a Google-based map of the area to a comprehensive listing of area attractions, you'll find everything you need in one easy-to-remember location.
Rest assured, the fantastic service doesn't stop when you book your stay. Maintaining and cleaning over 900 properties is no small task, and no one has more experience in doing it well than Dunes Realty. We can even deliver fresh linens and towels right to your door (and pick them up after your vacation,) meaning you'll have more room in your luggage for whatever is most important to you. What's more, because the Property Care and Housekeeping staff members are on call 24 hours a day, help will never be more than a phone call away.
Should you fall in love with the South Strand (as many others have done) and decide you might like to become more than just a guest, Dunes Realty's sales staff can help you turn that dream into a reality. With a combined 65+ years of experience in the area, this elite group has helped countless buyers (and sellers) make the most of their investment. Whether your dream is to make the area your permanent home, your second home, or even to let Dunes manage your property, our full-time agents can put you on the right track.
Of all the awards and accolades that Dunes Realty has received over the years, the praise of our guests is far and away the most rewarding to our staff. It's no secret that there are more options out there, and the fact that so many choose to return to Dunes year after year is a testament to the knowledge and commitment of each and every employee. Give us a call, and see for yourself what all the fuss is about!
