Wonderful Cottage

We were unable to stay a full week but really enjoyed the beach house. It had everything you could need even toys for Brenna Sue, out little poodle. We were spending Thanksgiving with my two brothers and would definitely rent this unit again.

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Jessi, it was great having you. Hope you come back in the future.

Wendy Poon


Nice home

We enjoyed this house very much. It actually has three bathrooms (two suites and one in hallway). With the pull-out sofa beds in the living room, it was comfortable for our party of 8. The owner was nice and responsive to our needs when we first checked in. The property is also within close proximity to the beach, fishing and shopping. If we go back to the area, we won't mind renting it again.

Perfect place to stay

This is a beautiful, clean , perfect location for a family , the owners are extremely easy to work with and very very helpful! We will definitely be coming back and only renting from them ! It was a very easy and stress free rental and vacation.

Pet friendly and kid friendly. The owner's are very nice and caring. I had my deposit back the next day!!! I would recommend this rental.

Dominique La Salle

Gatineau, Québec

Clean and comfortable

We have found the house spacious, clean and comfortable. Good size bedrooms, excellent beds, many pillows and bed covers, plenty of towels. Remember to bring your own beach towels though because that is the owners' request. Big kitchen with counter seating, stools enough for six and table for six if you want more formal. Excellent living room, two bathrooms, convenient when six in the same house. We were pleased to see how claen the place was. There is a big backyard and a BBQ as well. A shed on the property has beach chairs, floaters, umbrellas, bikes etc. You are about twentu minutes walk to the beach, which we did not mind doing, I guess you can also find parking near the beach if you prefer going by car. A Wallmart at the corner of the house street and the highway makes it very convenient. All in all, I recommend this property.

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Dominique and Carole, it was a pleasure to have you at our house. Thanks for a nice review and hopefully you can return in the future.

Frances Flanagan

Nice house off the beaten path. Short trip to the beach or marsh. The house is very clean with a great layout. The house is supplied with everything you will need for your stay, even dog toys. Fenced back yard is great for the dogs.

Frances, it was nice to have you back again!

Garden City on my Mind

This was our second year to stay at Serenity Cove and it was wonderful again. Cathy, with the cleaning service was so kind and caring about making our stay perfect. Our dogs love the freedom of the fenced backyard and visiting with the neighbor's dogs. Thank you Karen and Lou for all the extras you provide. This is a great family house and we hope to stay here next year!

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Teresa it's always a pleasure to have you at our home. hope to see you next year.

Great Stay

Was a very great vacation. The owner was extremely helpful and great to deal with. This was my first time renting a home versus a hotel. I do have a time a time share but there was no space available for the time frame I wanted. She walked me through the process and explained my options completely. The place was as nice as the time shares I have stayed at with more touch of home as it more private. I can see me and the party I was with staying here for years to come.

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Dan, thanks for the kind words. We strive to make everyone's vacation a great experience. Look forward to hearing from you next year.

Brittany White

Andrews, SC USA


We stayed a week at this rental and it was absolutely more than what we expected! To find that when we walked it the door how open and spacious was amazing. We live a short distance away from the rental so we brought our children up there for part of the week. They were over joyed with the games, toys, beach toys, bikes, and all the classic movies. Great distance to the beach and to the pier. Also loved the park at the end of the road with the dock at it. All in all my 8 year old wants us to rent it again for his birthday in August!!!!

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Brittany, glad you enjoyed your stay!! Hope to hear from you in August.

Would love to return

We certainly enjoyed our stay in your wonderful Garden City home. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips! The house was more than we expected. We appreciated all the little extras you provided. You seemed to think of everything a family with a toddler and a dog would enjoy. The area provided us with so much to do also. We have already given our friends your information and hope they well be able to enjoy your home in the spring also. We certainly will try to return again next fall! Thanks again!

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Sandie, so glad you enjoyed your stay!!! Look forward to hearing from you next Fall. Thanks for the referrals!!!

Relaxing, close to beach

We were there the first week in July. Very comfortable, cozy, pet friendly, all the comforts of home (and some we didn't even think of) and just a short walk to the beach. Also close to Murrell's Inlet restaurants. We had a wonderful time.

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Debbie, glad you enjoyed your stay!! Hope to see you next year!

Alex Sikorski

Great Family Beach House

What more could you ask for. A clean, nicely decorated beach house with private driveway, yard, and pet friendly. A close walk to the beach, nearby attractions, great stores, and good food places to go to, and oh did I say still near everything. This area is also very family oriented which we really liked. We'll definitely stay at Karen & Lou's place again. I'd recommend it to anyone..

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Alex, it's great to have wonderful guests like you! Look forward to seeing you next year.

Rental Property 315473; Greg Cross, Owner

This rental unit at Surfside Beach was truly outstanding. It had all the amenities you'd want, and the furnishings were just right to provide a relaxed atmosphere. At night if you wanted to play games, there was a nice selection that came with the property. If you wanted to watch cable TV, then you could choose any program you wanted to watch. It was close enough to the beach for a leisurely walk to come and go as you please so that you didn't have to take everything with you for an all-day stay. If you have pets like we do, a park was just across the street for a nice exercise walk, and the park even had plastic bag dispensers for pet waste furnished at no cost. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend this unit to others who might be searching for a pet friendly place. It truly deserves a 5-star rating!

Annabell Prigge

Raeford, NC

Felt Just Like Home...

Homeowner was very welcoming, and the area was perfect for me and my family to take nightly strolls with the dog and only one block away from the beach. The home offered everything we needed, and there was ample amount of space for a family of six with one child. Backyard was fenced which was great for our dog, and even toys for the dog were available, and very comfy recliner! Thank you again for welcoming us into your home! Will come again!

Karen Pastor

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the kind words. We strive to make our guests comfortable! Hope to see you again in the future.

Serenity Cove

Very pleased with accomodations. Very clean and fully equipped. Loved the beachy decor. We spent Thanksgiving there and the kitchen was large enough for 3 people to prepare their specialty dishes.The fenced in back yard made it convenient for my dog (and me) for him to do his "business". The location was quiet and private. Brookgreen Gardens was amazing and the ticket is good for a week. There is so much to see there that it is hard to take in all in l day. Sara J's had great seafood. Shopping and restaurants very close by. It truly felt like a home away from home. Sue and family

The best beach house!!!!

My family and I stayed at the Pastors house in July of 2012. It was the best house we ever stayed at. We came along way, so we was apprehensive of what we were getting into. Well, it was wonderful. We cannot wait to go back next year and even stay longer. If your looking for a house in South Carolina, please stay here!

Nicole Bowen


Quiet and provided all we needed

We were very happy with the home. It was very clean and conveniently located. The neighborhood was quiet. We walked to the beach everyday with the wagons and beach gear they provided. It was close to grocery stores, shops, etc. We walked to the children's park and pier which is at the end of the road. We could see the fireworks from there at night. The kids stayed busy with the games that were there. Having the pack n play and high chair already there was convenient for us. The only bad part of the whole place was the shower head in master bath. The kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals as well. Very satisfied with the place.

Grand stay for the grand-dog

Very nice atmosphere, furnishings, decor, etc. Perfect for our visiting grand-dog. The neighbor's dogs were a bit crazy. Had a bit of trouble accessing the internet but the owner was very responsive and helpful. Rec'd our deposit refund very quickly. Karen Pastor was personable and welcoming throughout the rental process. We would certainly consider returning to this property in the future.

Indian Trail, NC

Wonderful retreat

Our family of three went for a 3 night trip to Serenity Cove and Garden City Beach. The house was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We were refreshed for our little getaway before baby #2 arrives next month. The Serenity Cove is connected to the Serenity Haven house in a quiet area. We drove to the public parking areas in in Garden City Beach, since there were no sidewalks to get to the beaches, but it only took a few minutes. The owners were very hospitable as we made the reservation at the last minute.

Malcolm MacLean

Minden, ON Canada

We come back every year!

Serenity is truly a "home away from home" It is well appointed and has everying you need, whether you're staying for a week or a season. The kitchen is well equipped and the laundry facilities are great. I particularly appreciate the WIFI internet. We feel very comfortable here. Its so obvious that the owners, Lou and Karen, really care. The location is perfect! Its a short walk to the beach, close to shopping, golf and attractions but has the peace and quiet of a residential neighbourhood. The bikes are a bonus too. Even our cat feels at home here, and she's very choosy. All the condo/apartment-type places in Myrtle beach are small, crowded and impersonal, but Serenity is a real home. We relax as soon as we walk in the door. As far as I'm concerned, its the best vacation value in the Southeast. We've already booked for next year.

Tracy Brewer

Matthews, NC


Serene was wonderful and so spacious. We had a wedding over the weekend as our daughter was getting married. We had friends and family dropping in and they all just loved the place! We had fun meals together ironed our dresses, etc and sewed a few little things for our flower girl. The home was so visitor friendly that we found all we needed. Game night was enjoyed by all a quiet rest on the porch ended our night. Thank you for the kind welcome we felt. We will share this experience with all.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We had a nice trip and enjoyed staying at Serenity Haven. The place is nice and we loved the little extra's you provide. The chairs, umbrella and carts came in very handy going to the beach. My daughter watched a couple of videos and play with the V-Tech and Play Station giving us time to do what we needed. We all tried crabbing for an hour or two and my son went back and crabbed all of the next day. I especially enjoyed the family time out riding bikes and crabbing together. As I said, it was a really nice trip and we hope to stay again sometime.
