Private Homes house description
Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages are one of 4 of our vacation rental properties in North Myrtle Beach! (Cottage A and B) are very close to our beautiful white sandy beach! There is a heated pool that the cottages share! It is very nice and there is plenty of room for everyone! We provide a gas powered golf cart for each cottage as well! The cottages are on a very large lot! Each cottage is separated by a white picket fence so if two separate families rent them they have lots of privacy! We allow dogs at all our properties and the cottages are perfect for dogs. There is lots of space for them to enjoy themselves which makes everyone happy! There is separate parking for each cottage as well as an entrance to the pool with lounge chairs for each cottage. The cottages share a Weber gas grill with a grill gazebo! There is a huge outdoor hot shower! The shower is very private and has a lock on the inside. Often we have 2 separate families in each cottages and they both have dogs but the way they are designed it works great for both families! We provide beach chairs and towels, linens, hs internet, hd cable boxes, baby items (crib, packnplay, stroller, high chair, etc...) The kitchens are fully equipped with ice maker, disposal, dish washer, all small appliances, etc...There are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, etc...The cottages each have 2 bedrooms, a master with a king bed and another bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room. There is a laundry room and a small walk in closet in the master bedroom where the crib fits perfectly! Each cottage has a gas powered golf cart. There is golf cart parking at the beach access. You are allowed to drive golf carts all over this area of North Myrtle Beach. They are lots of fun to have.There are wood laminate floors in both cottages! (NO CARPET) We keep all of our properties very clean and well maintained. We live just a block away so if you need anything we can take care of it right away.
We have retired to the beach and are here most all the time. We keep a home in Greensboro where we worked and raised our family. We have grandchildren there. My husband is a retired dentist and our son took over the practice in Greensboro when he retired. My husband and I own and manage our properties and strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! If the cottages are not large enough we have 3 other properties that are much larger. Please call me anytime for more information. I would love to help you with your vacation plans.
Warmest Regards, Shelley and Jan (husband) Kraska

ReviewsWrite a review
Let's put it this way. We plan to hopefully go back to this property year after year. It was perfect for my me, my husband and my 15 month old son. I have read that people think cottage A would be the best but we loved cottage B. As you can see, my 15 mth old had a nice fenced yard to play and right out the back door is a nice pool for relaxation. The homes are right next to each other so I can see if the people who rent the other cottage got roudy at the pool then it could be cumbersome but we were lucky to have a great couple stay in cottage A. You must rent the golf cart. You can go virtually anywhere in it and not step a foot in your vehicle. We went to the grocery store and to the old pavilion for ice cream in the golf cart The property is definitely walking distance to the beach but like I said, golf cart is nice. The property is extremely clean and well maintained. Probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed and we have stayed at a lot of cabins, homes, cottages etc. I can't say anything about activities and attractions because we had every meal at this home and did nothing but pool, beach and golf cart. My son loved it!! What I was most impressed about are the owners. They take pride in their property plus they are super friendly and helpful. I left some clothes in a closet and Shelley even mailed them back to me. I could go on and on. If you are thinking of North Myrtle Beach, then book this property now. It can't be beat! Hope to make this our vacation destination for years to come.

Owner response: I am so happy when our guests have a relaxing vacation especially with a toddler. I have 8 small grandchildren of my own so we make sure we provide lots of baby items at the cottages for our guests. I am very careful when renting the cottages separately to rent to guests who are compatible. I have never had any problems! I appreciate all the nice remarks. We do work very hard to keep the properties well maintained and clean for your stay!
Great little house for a family.
Great little house for a family.
The houses are fantastic. They are exactly as shown (they might even line up the pillows up to match the pictures before re-resetting the house for the next guest). The BBQ works well, the pool is heated and almost everything you could need is provided (plates, pots, pans, forks, spoons etc.). I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to a family of up to 5. If you have more than that staying in one cottage it might be a little tight, especially if they are all teenagers/adults. However, if it's warm when you are there, how often will you be staying inside anyway? I would only differ from the owners opinion in one way. I might think about renting Cottage A as opposed to Cottage B if I knew the other cottage was rented and they were going to be out at the pool making a lot of noise. We have a 2 year old and his napping might have been challenging if we stated in Cottage B and the people from Cottage A were at the pool making a lot of noise. I'm not sure if it would be a big problem but it's something to think about.

Owner response: I appreciate the wonderful review. I always consider who is staying in each cottage. I have had several couples come at the same week each year because they became friends as did their dogs. They book each year together. It is exciting when this happens because everyone makes new friends as well as their pets. The Kraska's (Shelley and Jan)
Best Vacation Ever!
Best Vacation Ever!
This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach and we are already planning another! The cottage was amazing! It had all the comforts of home for us and our poodles. It was so relaxing to sit outside and listen to the ocean. The golf cart was a great amenity. It was so convenient to drive to the beach and around the neighborhood. Shelley and Jan are wonderful and have a great cottage! We will definitely rent this cottage again!

wonderful family get away!
wonderful family get away!
This was a beautiful, clean cottage with plenty of space for our family, including our dog! It had all of the amenities of home which made it so comfortable. We enjoyed walking the beach every morning, chilling by the pool and getting some sun in the afternoon, and putt putt golf or playing cards at night. I would definitely come back again to this rental property! Thank you for wonderful memories :)

I needed a nice easy get away for me and my dog. I wanted to be close to the beach, a clean place that would welcome my dog and let me relax. these cottages had every thing on my wish list and then some. I can't thank Shelley and Jan enough for this wonderful cottage.Every thing was top notch and just perfect. Can't wait to come down again and tell all my friends.

Truly a home away from home
Truly a home away from home
This was our first year renting the cottage from Shelley. My family and I could not of had a more wonderful time. The cottage and all its amenities are more then we could of asked for. We rented cottage A, and it was very clean, the decor was just so relaxing, and it was sized just perfect for my husband, mother-in-law and our two dogs. We rented the golf cart which was a lot of fun, and very useful for our trips to the beach and convenient store. The golf cart parking was very conveniently located and there was always plenty of parking. The private pool was a dream and I am ashamed to say we probably spent more time at the pool than we did the beach. We tried to split the time evenly but why deal with people, sand and salt water, when you have a quiet pool waiting for you in your own backyard. The grill was a nice touch. We only used it once for lunch, but it was nice to have. Who doesn't like a hamburger or hot dog for lunch when they are at the beach. Our neighbors in the back cottage were very friendly and we hope to spend more time with them next year. Our pets although a little frightened on their first vacation got used to the cottage very quickly and the property was very pet friendly. My mother-in-law loved the washer and dryer, and we loved that she loved it. We did not have any laundry to do when we arrived home. I can not say enough things about our experience, and cannot wait for our trip next year, which we are already in the process of reserving. Thank you so much Shelley and Jan for your hospitality, and sharing your homes with us.

My family's favorite vacation EVER!
My family's favorite vacation EVER!
My husband, myself and our two teenagers, as well as our beloved dog, stayed in Cottage B and my parents and 2 year old niece stayed in Cottage A. This was by far our favorite vacation ever. It was so relaxing. Everyday we would make a nice breakfast in the neat and well equipped kitchen, then pack the cooler and head to the beach which was only a block away (5 minutes). We would come home, head to the relaxing pool and grill out! At night we watched a DVD from Redbox. We plan to make this our vacation spot every Summer. We all had a great time. The cottages were so clean and beautifully decorated. We had the pleasure of meeting Shelley and her husband (owners) they were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend all of my family and friends to stay here. It will feel like a home away from home! We will be booking for next Summer soon! Thanks for a wonderful vacation Kraska Family!

Owner response: I am so pleased when our families want to come back each year. Our biggest reward is to know that our families have enjoyed their much needed vacations! We try to provide everything you will need while on vacation. We provide as many kitchen items as possible as well as lots of baby items such as: a full size crib, a packnplay, booster seat, high chair, baby gate, stroller, etc...We also have gates for our dogs so if you need to put them up to keep a dog on one of the decks etc..We provide cable boxes in each cottage as well as high speed internet. We have 2 wonderful ladies who clean the cottages when not working at the library. The landscaping at the cottages is so pretty with lots of palms and flowering plants. Each cottage is separated by a white picket fence and each has a deck and fenced yard area. There is parking that is separate for both cottages too as well as separate entrances to the pool area. The pool is very nice and heated when needed. There is also a very nice grilling area with a Weber gas grill. We also have a huge outdoor hot shower which is very private. We also provide beach chairs and towels for your use so you do not need to bring them. We now have a gas powered golf cart that is available to rent with the cottages. There is so much to take in you will love them. They are very close to the beach as well as lots of shopping, dining, golfing, activities, etc....We would love to help you with your vacation plans. Give me a call today! Sincerely, Shelley
Wonderful place to stay!
Wonderful place to stay!
My parents rented both cottages and invited all of us down for their 50th anniversary. We were so impressed by the cleanliness and how nice they were. We have rented alot of places in different areas and this was by far the nicest. The pool was awesome - I wish I could have stayed! It's very close to the beach with just a minutes walk and there are alot of places to visit nearby. Our dogs had a blast and I would definately rent the golf cart too!

Owner response: Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages are very unique because there is nothing like them here at North Myrtle Beach. They are close to the Ocean and all the other amenities here. They have a large yard around both of them and are very pet friendly. There is a lovely private heated pool, a huge outdoor hot shower which is private, a beach container with lots of beach chairs and toys, a Weber gas grill, lots of baby items, hs internet and HD digital cable boxes, etc...We have lots of families and couples who are making reservations every year for the cottages and some twice a year. They are the perfect get away. No elevators, or high rise buildings. They are beautifully landscaped (by my husband) with palm trees, flowering plants, rose bushes, etc...They are really a tropical paradise! We appreciate so much the guests who take time to write reviews. It is a blessing to us. Thanks, Shelley and Jan (my husband) Kraska

Lovely, Lovely, Lovely, Place at the Beach!
Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages This place was so wonderful. Very clean and everything was there that we needed. We were celebrating my daughter and husband's birthday and wished we would have taken a whole week. We enjoyed the puzzles and games that were provided too. Instruction was on the TV and grills which was a blessing and easy to understand. I planned on renting the cottages again. I am getting ready to check to see what she has available. Would highly recommend for families and good friends! Thanks Shelly for a great get away. We really enjoyed it!

About the owner: This is a photo of me, my husband, and 3 of our 8 grandchildren! We are blessed! My husband and I own and manage our 4 properties. We take excellent care of all 4 of them. My husband is a retired Dentist and we still have a home in Greensboro, NC but spend 99% of our time now at our beach home in North Myrtle Beach. We love it here! My husband and I grew up in Ohio and both graduated from Ohio State University in 1974 and then he attended dental school at OSU. (Go Bucks!) We own a personal beach home near just a block from all 4 of our properties. We really looked up and down the coast before deciding on this area of North Myrtle Beach. One reason we loved this section called Crescent Beach is the beach is very wide and beautiful. It is never crowded and very family and pet friendly. You are allowed to use golf carts in this area to drive all over. You are also allowed to ride bikes on the beach. We are close to everything. Parks, Golf Courses, Fine Restaurants, Fantastic Shopping, Tennis Courts, Amusement Parks, Water Sports, Beach Shops, Shows and Entertainment, Marina's, Inlets to the Ocean, Gambling Boats, Deep Sea Fishing, Riding Sea Dos, etc....It is a great location! We love helping families have a great vacation by making sure that your stay is relaxing and enjoyable as possible!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
It is perfect for couples, families, pets, toddlers, small groups of any kind but it is very easy to access. There is lots of grassy areas of dogs and kids and people. It is unique with a private heated pool and fenced yard. It makes your vacation easier. No parking decks or elevators, just walk outside and feel and hear the Ocean Breeze!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I provide 8-10 beach chairs and 12 beach towels. There are sand toys, boogie boards, etc... in a container. I also provide baby items such as a full size crib, crib sheets, mattress pad, packnplays, a packnplay mattress, high chair, booster seat, infant swing, infant bouncer seat, infant bath tub, exersaucer, stroller, baby gates, bed rails, etc...hs internet service as well as hd cable boxes in each living area. There are of course flat screen tv's and dvd players in each bedroom. I think we strive to make your vacation as relaxing as possible! Please let us know if there is a special request and we will do our best to accommodate you! We do pick up beach wheel chairs for our guests and return them.
