What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Murrells Inlet

I like that the neighborhood is in sc close to beaches and businesses nice weather people are friendly

Yje things I like most about my neighborhood is its like a little suburb all its on but go out to the main road a d you can walk to tbe grocery if you wanted too and tbe Beach is 3 minutes away. Restaurants are near by. The weather is mild. It's just wonderful

a safe community of likeminded people, not far from the ocean, parks, tourist attractions. A place people dream they are able to visit, let alone live year round.

Their is shopping close by. You can get to restaurants and the beach in your golf cart. It is a quiet neighborhood

We are close to stores, lots of self storage, supermarkets, small stores like Dollar Tree,good breakfast places, dinner, too. Plenty of car washes, gas, retail.

it's pretty much a big circle so i take my dog for a walk as often as i can. there is never a lot of noise so if you wake up early enough you can step outside and hear birds and ask nature amongst you
