About Judy

Mark and I have been married 28 years and have 2 sons. Our oldest is 25 and he loves the beach! We work tirelessly advocating for him due to his diagnosis of Down Syndrome and Autism. Our youngest son is 21 and attends The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park NY. He hopes to become a successful chef and eventually own his own restaurant. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and decorating. Mark is a manager for an electrical supply company and has worked in the industry for 36 years We enjoy spending time at the beach with family and friends and have created wonderful memories here. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Judy purchased this house in 1996

Why Judy chose Surfside Beach

We have been coming to this area all our lives. We decided in 1996 to buy a house in Surfside Beach because it is a very family friendly town that has a wide beach, unlike some of the other beaches in the area. Short walk to pier, playgrounds, restaurants, bars, and library. Our house is close to Murrells Inlet (2 miles) where you can go for great seafood and live music. There is a boardwalk on the inlet where you can walk to different restuarants and music venues or just enjoy looking out at the pristine salt marsh brimming with oyster beds.

There are so many fun and interesting activities for every age all within a short walk or drive. We felt this was the perfect area to buy a home.

What makes this house unique

Our family loves to watch sports and movies so we enjoy watching on the recent addition of a 60 inch HDTV.

We stay on top of updating property, and have provided high quality furnishings, not your basic rental houses furniture.

Each year you choose to stay in our vacation home expect to see something new.

Wonderful house and location for family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults and two young children enjoyed our week at this lovely beach house. It is very attractively decorated, in a great location steps from the beach and near restaurants and shopping. We cooked in often and found the kitchen and living areas well equipped and comfortable. Each bedroom has its own bathroom - a real plus for us! The porch was a favorite hangout - very comfortable and convenient. I would definitely recommend this property!!

Ideal location to beach and pool. Condo was very clean, nicely furnished and well stocked. So nice having a bathroom in every bedroom. Loved the porch and such easy access to the pool. Check-in and check-out process couldn't have been easier. Great experience for our entire family!

Judy’s house is the beach house you would build for yourself, if only you could. My family and I were so sad to leave this beautiful home and we plan to come back as soon as we can. What I loved most about the house was how open, spacious and uncluttered it was. Yet, it had EVERYTHING you could possible want or need for a week at the beach. Great kitchen and very well stocked. The bedrooms were furnished with lovely pieces and beds slept like a dream. The porch was large and inviting. We ate most all our meals there and could enjoy an ocean view and cool breezes while relaxing. The pool is only steps away so our grandson and his friend could swim while we watched from the comfy porch. It is a quick walk to the beach and extremely accessible with showers to wash away the sand before returning inside. There is plenty of room under the house for parking, grilling and eating a meal at the great picnic table. We cooked a Low Country Boil here and it was a perfect place to enjoy this type of food. Our week flew by and we look forward to returning next summer. Judy, is a gracious host and accommodated our every whim. I give this house a definite 5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
