About Barrett East

Family of four from Virginia: Dad, Mom and boy/girl twins. Dad grew up in Ky&Va, Mom in Tennessee, we enjoy the outdoors and sports as well as travel and cooking. We look forward to having you as a guest and we love to give advice about Myrtle!

Barrett East purchased this condo in 2005

Why Barrett East chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

The location and setting is perfect and is a best value for a resort of this quality. Great for kids and families, with lots onsite and easy to get to shopping, dining, shows, golf etc.

What makes this condo unique

Private pool and proximity to the beach are key. Oversize lakefront porch and free WIFI make a difference. We end the day with 'happy hour' at our pool after the beach. Landscaping makes the paths and lakes ideal for walking, strollers etc. Resort services and food are great (bars, ice cream, casual/fine dining, Starbucks etc). Being on our porch for morning coffee or evening drinks w the novelty lights is special. And it's nice to park right outside our front door or use the free area shuttle!

Continued excellence

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay at this location in a row for my annual conference. It continues to be a great option. The property is very well maintained and continually updated. All of the amenities are provided to make the stay easy and pleasant. Access to the pool, waterfront, and other area properties is convenient while maintaining privacy and quiet. I look forward to returning next year!

Everything was just as you promised and thanks for letting us know in advance the dryer was slow. Fortunately, I have a wonderful husband so he replaced the ventilation pipe on the dryer. Apparently someone had push the washer back to far and it crushed the pipe so the humidity couldn't escape. Your wife will be very happy when she returns because it drys better than mine at home. We were able to dry a load of towels in 40 minutes and the sheets in 25 minutes; therefore, we paid the minimum on the cleaning fee.

Absolutely, a wonderful family friendly environment at the resort. We look forward to coming back!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Barrett's condo, and appreciated his extra communication prior to the trip. The condo came equipped with beach/pool necessities and lots of board games to keep the kids occupied during the rain. The kitchen was well-equipped and we had everything we needed. We loved being on the first floor and close to the pool and 5 minutes from the beach. The only down-side was the requirement to do launder all towels before leaving (or else pay extra $), as it was impossible to do 2 loads in one morning (the dryer is very inefficient). We loved it and will probably be back. Thanks, Barrett!

Perfect place on a great resort!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quick weekend getaway and didn't want to have to bring a ton of stuff with us. This place was perfect. It felt like a disney resort with all the amenities and beautification of the resort alone. Barrett and his family have done a great job with keeping the place up to date and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the dinnerware, plates, cups, corkscrew, etc. that you would expect in your home. There were a ton of toys in the storage cabinet on the screened in porch along with boogie boards and floats as well as coolers and rolling devices to assist with the short trek to the beach. The walk to the beach was really close (our 1 year pushed our wagon the whole it was so short a one year could do it). There is a stand up shower to the left right after walking in the condo that was perfect for quickly bathing the kids as well.

The beach in that location wasn't as busy as say south myrtle is, but it may have been the time of year we visited that helped as well. The weather was great on Saturday for us and we had an awesome time. The wifi was easy to connect to and provided us all with a little downtime in the evening to chill out. My wife and I had some wine on the rocking chairs on their screened in porch after a long day with the kids at the beach that provided great relaxation. For breakfast there is a dunkin donuts about two minute drive from door to door that we went to for coffee and food in the mornings real quick. We also ate from a Japanese place Miyabi that was great right across from there, then Rossi's and a really good pizza place that is in the same complex as Rossi's.

We will certainly be returning again for a longer stay. We couldn't believe the value from this condo compared to other places we've stayed at on HomeAway. Barrett was very responsive as well and provided great interaction. We look forward to our next visit!

Our experience was awesome

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the East's condo. It is very spacious and well laid out condo with super cute and modern decor, and well equipped kitchen. The Kingston Plantation is a great place to stay with all the necessities on site and shopping and eating right around the corner. The location of the condo within the Kingston Plantation is great with a pool steps away from the front door and a beautiful water view from the back porch. It is also walking distance from the ocean. I highly recommend this condo. Thanks!

Attending a conference

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at this very well appointed and comfortable property. I was staying in Kingston Plantation for my annual conference at one of the hotels, and this location offers a very convenient way to attend while still maintaining privacy and peacefulness. It is just a short walk to any of the sites along the beachfront.

I had made a comment last year about the quality of the towels being threadbare- I am happy to report that this issue was addressed and the new towel sets were a vast improvement over last year. The kitchen remains well equipped, the beds comfortable, and the decor tasteful.
