About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

This is the finest 1 bedroom unit in Water's Edge Resort! Nothing else in Water's Edge or the South Strand can compare. An extreme makeover, with a Tuscan Villa Decor in mind, a few short years ago converted this into our escape away private retreat with every conceivable luxury and amenity you could imagine.

From the minute you walk in to our Villa you will see a spectacular panoramic view of the blue Atlantic Ocean. A 14 foot arch, supported by white Doric columns, frame the spectacular view through the living room. Designer Cindy Crawford queen size sofa and marble top end tables, coffee table and TV table accent the side-by-side power leather reclining entertainment theater seats and the 40 inch Sony flat screen TV with DVD and 5.1 surround sound built into the trey ceiling.

Relax to the cool breeze of the tropical overhead fan while you look out over the blue Atlantic Ocean. An oversize 14 foot by 8 foot balcony with privacy walls gives you a front row seat to watch the dolphins, boats, surfers, para-sails and you will even see horses in the off-season.

Dine in elegance at the tropical style dining table and chairs, framed by the custom designed tiled tropical planter on one end and a built-in china cabinet and office area on the other. The Custom designed Cherry cabinet kitchen with Canyon Sunset Granite is fully stocked with all your culinary needs, high-end stainless steel appliances, built-in wine cooler, compactor, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, convection oven, microwave and glass top range.

The beautifully furnished Master Bedroom has custom built-in Cherry cabinets including a well stocked library for your enjoyment in the lighted glass front bookcase. Mirrored closet doors, and luxurious cashmere sculptured carpet, adjoins a super-luxury bath with Jacuzzi tub, Rain Forest Shower head and built-in body jets in the wall. Floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile are accented by a granite topped Bombay chest vanity. Full second bath with Rain Forest Shower Head and floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile and granite topped vanity.

The beach is a short elevator ride down and 100 feet to the sand. It is a beach lovers dream. A little quieter and less crowded than Myrtle Beach, you will fall in love with Garden City Beach. This unit was remodeled as our private second home. Our escape away. We just began renting it in 2013 to people looking for something really special. Be among the first to brag about staying at Villa 305 Waters Edge Resort. If you stay here once, you will be spoiled for life, and will want to come back again and again. Welcome to our Home Away from Home! We look forward to hearing about your visit with us.

About Janet

Welcome, we are Janet and Parker, homeowners of Villa 305 Water's Edge Resort. We bought this in 2006 as a private second home. We did an extreme makeover that same year, to make this home a show place. Family and business obligations prevent us from using it as much as we would like, so we have decided to share our home with those who are seeking something special in a vacation resort. We know you will enjoy it and we also know that you will want to return often.

Janet purchased this condo in 2006

Why Janet chose Garden City Beach

Garden City Beach is just south of Myrtle Beach, but a little quieter, less crowded and more relaxing than Myrtle Beach. Water's Edge Resort is a concrete and steel high rise that withstood hurricane Hugo, when many of its neighbors did not. The third floor and unit 305 are just above the tops of the Palmetto trees to create a tropical feeling without distractions. The view from the living room and the deck are simply the best on the East Coast. We think you will agree.

What makes this condo unique

Super-luxury unit at a very competitive price. Why stay somewhere else when you can have the best unit in the building and the best on the South Strand?

This is it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the best! Very clean and comfortable. New furnishings, not just someone's old furniture that had been replaced. The recliners are very comfortable for an evening in. We had one afternoon of rain and were able to relax inside. There are detailed directions on how to use everything which was extremely helpful. The owner contacted us beforehand to make sure we were all set. The Owens' are very hospitable and wanted to make sure everything was as we expected. We were in the second week of our vacation when we arrived, and were called home for family matters. When I contacted the Owens to let them know we were leaving early, they wanted to make sure everything was okay with our stay. I would definitely stay at this condo again. It is very well cared for, and worth every penny. The view of the beach and access is excellent. It is just a short walk to the pier. I've seen some of the reviews that mention the beach area is small. Believe me, it is not! The tide comes up in the afternoon, but it doesn't last long, and it leaves beautiful shells behind to collect. Stop looking now, and book it!

Spectacular view and condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is decorated with the finest furnishing and is super clean. Walk off the pool deck onto the beach.. We have stayed at a lot of oceanfront condos but none that were just steps away from the beach and a short walk to Gardner city pier. The sunrise in the morning from the balcony is simply stunning. The balcony had nice Lounge chairs for relaxing, enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the waves rolll in and table and chairs for oceanfront dining, And when you are ready to unwind inside you can relax in a comfortable recliner. Janet was a great host and was truly invested in making sure our stay was top notch. We would definitely stay here again. You won’t be disappointed. Pamela

Clean and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything was top of the line and it was really beautifully decorated. I don't know of anything that you could possible need if you stay here. We are looking forward to getting back to the beach in the near future and we would enjoy staying at this condo again.

Amazing Condo and Owners

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the most beautiful condo in Myrtle Beach. We have stayed at Waters Edge on several occasions and often admired this condo, but could never work the dates in with our dates. This year we made it a point to get our reservations in early to make sure we got this condo and we were not disappointed. This will definitely become a yearly visit for us. We make many trips during the year to many different places and nothing compares to this condo. The workmanship and decoration that has gone into this condo is simply amazing. I don't think you will find a more beautiful place anywhere. The condo itself is very modern with many accessories including trash compactor, wine cooler, spacious side by side fridge with ice maker, surround sound for the TV with complete audio system, plus many many more extras, right down down to personalized his and hers gift bags left on the counter tops.The kitchen is fully stocked and there was nothing we needed that was not there. The view from the condo is just as amazing as the inside of the condo. The balcony has a full view of the beautiful sunrise and also includes table w/chairs which we sat at every morning to enjoy breakfast and beach watch. It is also only a half mile from one of favorite hang outs, The Pier at Garden City

The property owners, Janet and Parker, were just as amazing as the property itself. They made personal contact with us as our date approached as a courtesy to ensure we understood everything about the condo and entry codes. As our stay got closer Hurricane Irma began making news and the week before were to check-in, her track was very uncertain. The Owens reached out to us on multiple occasions to discuss the storm and different options they were prepared to offer to ensure our stay was perfect. We were amazed at their offers since it was only days away and we had not purchased any type of cancellation insurance. They kept in touch with us throughout the week and as the storm shifted more west, we made the decision to go ahead with our stay as originally planned even though we knew there would still be weather impacts. With the luxury of this place, we had no regrets or issues with staying inside for a couple of days while Irma passed by. The Owens called us after the storm to check in with us and their property "handy man" also stopped by to check on us after the storm passed. What more could you ask for with something they had no control over?

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. Although the weather could have been better we had a great time. This condo is very well maintained and very clean. Beautiful view of the beach. The beach is very small after the tide comes in but by next year the beach will be much bigger because they have started dredging. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay! Maybe we will be back next year!

Thank so much,

Ron and Cindy Attanasio

Everything was great in this condo and I would definitely stay again. The only minor comment I have is the bed could be upgraded other than that everything was awesome

Car: recommended

Garden City Beach and Water's Edge Resort are located about 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach in an area that is a little quieter, more family oriented and less crowded. But, the best shopping, dining and attractions have moved toward this end of the beach, so you are never very far from what you want to see and do. Detailed driving directions provided the week before you check in.
