About Kathy Jenkins
We built Katy's Dream as a family second home and gathering place. Over the years we have held many joyful times with our large family over Christmas and other holidays. We were both raised in the Pittsburgh area and have lived in many different places around the country as job promotions presented themselves. Therefore, we have many friends from all over the USA. We both graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Kathy has a masters in education from Brennau University and taught school for 30 years. I (Chuck) got my masters from the University of Pittsburgh and I am still active as an HR professional and consultant. We (actually Kathy as I was always traveling for business) raised two excellent children who are married and we are the proud grandparents of 3 boys and 3 girls. We currently live in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina (near Charleston) and plan to retire there. So we are close by, if needed, but far enough away at the same time.
Kathy Jenkins purchased this House in 2007
Why Kathy Jenkins chose Surfside Beach
For many years we rented a home in Long Bay Estates about 4 miles north of SSB. This area became our annual family vacation place. Over the years we shared these vacation weeks with friends we have made from all over the country and many of them today have become residents of the area in retirement. When the opportunity presented itself for us to build our own home here we never hesitated. We found a solid builder who was building a duplex on the property. We immediately contacted close friends who were living in Chicago at the time whom we knew also wanted to buy a property in the area and they bought their beach house sight unseen with our recommendation. It has been a great partnership and you will notice a lot of similarities between the two units. It was planned that way. The property is probably in the best possible location it can be. We are in the heart of SSB, 3 rows back from the beach, close to restaurants, bars, shopping, playgrounds, library and all the best the area has to offer. Katy's Dream is our home away from home and our sanctuary. We hope it becomes yours also.
What makes this House unique
We love to sit at the heated pool after a morning on the beach or a round of golf and watch the kids splash in the water. It is a great place to sit and chill out with a beverage. Those that love to cook will find Kathy's kitchen with everything you can possibly need. The front porches are perfect to sit in the morning and watch the sun rise with a cup of coffee and a book. Our living area is comfortable and has all the entertainment equipment you will need and we have plenty of family games in the cabinet under the HDTV. Home away from home, sanctuary, relax all describe Katy's Dream and how we hope you feel after spending a week there.

Katie's Dream is a wondeful property. Communications with Kathy were outstanding. Cannot beat the location to the beach and local restaurants. Grandsons loved the pool as well as the whole family. No issues arose. Would definitley put Katie"s Dream at the top of our list of greta places to stay in the Myrtle Beach area. Thanks, Kathy!

Road Trip - part 2
This is the second year in a row we have stayed at Katy's Dream, and once again, we loved every minute!!
The house is very clean, and spacious. There were 6 adults and 5 kids in our group, and there was more than enough space in the house and pool for all of us.
The house is very close to the beach - we walked over everyday!!
There are amazing restaurants and shops within walking distance. Be sure to try the onion rings at River City, and the Buffalo chicken pizza at Surfside Italian restaurant... Mmmm!!!
The house has all the amenities you could need, and the pool was cleaned multiple times through the week.
The property owner Kathy is amazing! She called us soon after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. We were in constant communication leading up to our vacation. She is very knowledgable and friendly. An absolute pleasure!
We loved our stay at Katy's Dream, and look forward to returning again soon.
I love that your crew enjoy our home so much! Let me know anytime you want to return.
Loved staying at Katy’s Dream. The house is well stocked and clean. The owners were very accommodating. Would definitely book again.
Great rental property
Katy’s Dream was a great house for us, and met all of our needs. It was a very short walk to the beach and also to shops and restaurants. The backyard pool was perfect for our grandkids. We would definitely recommend this property.
We love this house. We have previously stayed at this home on other vacations. We call it our home away from home. It is equipped with everything you need. It is close to the beach and many other attractions.
