Great place , the owner is very friendly. The condo was everything we could ask for. As for getting to the beach it was no problem it took me about 15-20 seconds and I had my spot. The fishing pier is about a 1/3 mile walk with bands each night for dancing or just sit back to have an adult...

If you want a place on the beach with a pool but without a lot of other guests, this is the place for you. There are only 24 units in this building so there is plenty of room to spread out on the beach. It sure beats pouring onto the beach with 1000 plus other people, all fighting for the...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath on the second floor. The view was awesome, we were only a couple blocks from the pier and the sound of the waves at night was so relaxing. The place was clean, neat and well supplied. Only drawback was when arriving late there is no one to meet you and you check in...

Sea Mystique is a lovely little condo complex in MURRELLS INLET, not Garden City Trip Advisor. Expedia has listed the wrong telephone number we found out, for TWO YEARS. We had a 4th floor unit with a beautiful view of the ocean. The unit was clean and upgraded. The pull-out sofa was not too comfortable. There is no office on...

The views from our fourth floor unit were amazing. The quant little deck offered a relaxing place for coffee in the morning or just a tranquil spot to sit and listen to the ocean waves. You had easy access to the beach,which we enjoyed eveynight! The room was big enough for the three of us I would not recommend any...

First time to a beach on Atlantic coast. Comparisons are to the Destin FL area. Condition of condo was disappointing. Even though it was a 2 bedroom it was very cramped for 2 adults & 2 kids. Furnishings were ok but everything else needed updating. Floor tiles were cracked, bathrooms were very small and out dated. Location is great. Right...

We bought a single week from Festiva and chose to stay here. We found it very easily but getting a key was a whole other story! The Festiva people are either clueless or just dont care. Luckily we found someone walking around outside and asked them where to get our key. We had to drive about 6 or 8 blocks...

“We had a room on the 3rd floor the higher the better, because the view is greater! However, honestly when you stay here every room has a great view.”

“Ask for a 4th floor unit. There is a great view and we had no noise from neighbors. There is an elevator and trollies for luggage/groceries so you won't have to climb a bunch of stairs if you pick a higher unit. They don't have "upgraded units." I asked, but they put us on the 4th floor to make up for it and it was worth the view and the elevator ride.”
