Murrells Inlet has many claims to fame: the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, the once-lair to famous pirate Blackbeard, and its world-famous sculpture garden and wildlife preserve, Brookgreen Gardens. With so many activities nearby—plus beautiful beaches—you can’t go wrong with a trip to one of our Murrells Inlet vacation rentals.
Murrells Inlet is one of the smallest waterfront districts on the Grand Strand, a 60-mile stretch of beach running along the South Carolina coast. The village is tucked in the sand just 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. With a rich history and strong ties to local culture, the village is popular for tourists year-round. Our Murrells Inlet vacation rentals are perfectly located for exploring the area.
Perhaps it’s no surprise that water sports and activities are so popular in Murrells Inlet. With an abundance of ocean access, as well as tributaries and marshland, guests can choose from a range of activities from surfing to canoeing to waterfowl-watching. Dolphin watching and pirate-themed boat tours are available, or you can spend your days lazing along the shores—when it comes to our Murrells Inlet condo rentals, the opportunities are endless.
Be sure to stop along the famous Marsh Walk to see the fishing boats returning with the day’s catch—and then pop into one of the many restaurants serving it for dinner. Clams, oysters, crabs, and fish are all on the menu, and many establishments host live music in the evenings.
A stay in a Murrells Inlet vacation rental would be incomplete without a visit to Brookgreen Gardens. Founded by Archer and Anna Huntington in 1931, this National Historical Landmark boasts an incredible collection of American sculpture and beautiful flora year-round. The Huntingtons are a household name in Murrells Inlet, and you’ll find Huntington Beach State Park directly across the highway. It was originally part of the estate, and now serves as miles of public beach access with campgrounds, bird-watching, nature programs, and more. The Huntingtons’ beautiful home, resembling a castle and known as Atalaya, is open for exploration as well.
