Connection speeds may not be fast enough to support streaming movies, music or video games.
Are beach chairs, umbrellas, etc., provided?:
In most cases, no. If you find beach chairs or other beach items in the property, you are welcome to use them. However, most owners advise that their beach chairs were left on the beach too often.

Parking is limited at all oceanfront condominium complexes. We can only provide the number of parking passes the HOA rules permit. In most cases, no more than two parking passes can be provided. We are limited to one parking pass per unit at Horizon East, Afterdeck, and for one and two bedroom units at Waters Edge.
There aren't any free public parking lots near the beach. Surfside Beach has some metered parking along Ocean Boulevard and some lots.
The rental includes the parking passes available, but does not guarantee the availability of parking space. Parking is managed by the property manager, we have no control over the parking lot or parking space.
