About the property

Duplex-8 total Bedrooms, 6 Full baths, Sleeps 16-18

PP1 our 8 bedroom vacation rental home is perfect for all our families! When you arrive you will want to check out your own private pool and go for a swim.

Pineapple Palms is great for large family reunions because you not only get 8 bedrooms but 2 kitchens and 2 washers and 2 dryers and tons of space to spread out. Our families love the 2 kitchens. Many of the families having reunions and love being together but when they want some space and the 2 units are ideal especially at breakfast and lunch time. You have enough space to makes it more enjoyable for everyone. Most families eat dinners together in one unit or the other. There is plenty of space to have meals in one unit or the other.

There are lots of golf cart companies that will deliver a golf cart right to your door! In the reviews you will read that we provided golf carts but due to not being able to get liability insurance, we had to sell them. I can provide you with the names of all the local companies.

There is direct beach access at the end of our street with golf cart parking in front of the sand dunes. (there are lots of golf cart companies that will deliver a golf cart to your door)

You can grill out by the pool on the Weber gas grill or sit in the rockers on the front porch and feel the ocean breeze.

Each unit has an open living, dining, and kitchen area so you can cook, eat, and share memories together.

There is hs internet service and hd digital cable boxes in the living areas.

The whole house has wood flooring including the 8 bedrooms!

There are 2 King Suites and 6 Queen BR's. The king suites have a walk in closet (perfect for a crib) there is also a double futon in the master suite.

We provide sheets, bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths, dish towels etc...

We provide lots of baby items. There are 2 cribs, a toddler bed, 2 packnplays, 2 high chairs, baby swing, bouncy seat, baby bath tub, jumper, etc...

I try to keep the kithcens well stocked with everything you will need. There are coffee makers, toasters, blenders, pancake griddles, crock pots, large pots and pans. There are lots of dishes. I provide corelle white dishes because they are light weight and durable for large families. There are tea kettles, can openers, wine openers, wine glasses, etc...There are baking dishes, cookies sheets, cake pans, muffin tins, mixing bowls, etc...

Each refrigerator has an ice maker with a cold water dispenser on the front with a side by side freezer door. There are disposals and dishwashers of course.

There is a laundry room in each unit with a LG full size front loading washer and dryer. There is an ironing board and irons in each unit too!

The pool is very nice. It is heated during certain months of the year. The water temperature is kept between 84 and 88 degrees depending on the outside temperature. In June, July, and August the water does not need to be heated usually. In March, April, May, Sept., and Oct. the pool heater is turned on to keep the temperature at a constant temp. between 84 to 86 degrees. We use an electric heat pump to heat the pool. When the night time temperatures drop below 55 degrees at night it is diffucult to heat the pool so it is not heated in Nov., Dec, Jan, and Feb. for this reason.

Thanks in advance for choosing Pineapple Palms 1 your next vacation rental home in North Myrtle Beach! We have many families that return so don't wait too long to schedule your family vacation! You will love it here! Give me a call today!

About Shelley Kraska

The photo shows us with our family! 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 live in North Myrtle Beach. We love it here! My husband and I grew up in Ohio and both graduated from Ohio State University and then he attended dental school at OSU. (Go Bucks!) 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 etc....It is a great location!I

Shelley Kraska purchased this house in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful family get together at PP1. Our 3 kids and their spouses and children all stayed together in this incredible beach home. We had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space for all of us and there were 15 of us. We had 3 children under the age of 2 and Shelly provided everything we needed for the babies.Our 5 grandchildren loved the private pool and riding to the beach on the golf carts to the beach. The beach was just down the street and it is so wide and never crowded at all. We cooked out on the gas grill and enjoyed the large fully stocked kitchens. There were pancake griddles and a waffle maker. We had everything we needed to prepare large meals. Since there are 2 kitchens it made meal preparation so much easier. It gave us some space so we were not crowded ever. We loved that we had 2 laundry rooms too! The pool and deck area are very nice as well as the large front porches with the rocking chairs. We were close to lots of nice restaurants and the shopping was fantastic. We were close to the Tanger Outlets and they are so nice with all the shops anyone could want. We saw the pirate show with the grandchildren and they loved it. We also went to the amusement park on the beach at Main Street. It is so nice and the kids wanted to return every night. It was very close to the house. The house is beautiful and so nicely decorated. It was cleaner than my own home. I don't know how they keep it so clean. We loved arriving to all clean beds and having the beach chairs and towels was so helpful. There were also lots of sand toys and boogie boards for our use. I know we will definitely be back!

We have 8 small grandchildren now so we make sure we provide lots of baby gear at all 4 of our properties. My huband is able to make sure that everything is in great working order and I make sure everything is clean and perfect when you arrive. We strive to make your vacation experience the best it can possibly be. We have individuals whom clean each property for us and take care of it like it was their own. They have other jobs so they just take care of our properties on the weekend. They are very professional and we could not provide such excellent service without them. If there is something that you would like or need, please let me know and I can see what I can do for you. We want you to love your time at Pineapple Palms and for it to be the best vacation you have ever had.

This place was amazing! We visited with our family and another family that we go to church with and we were all very impressed. It was very clean and private. We definately would like to spend another vacation in this beach house.

Family getaway in NMB

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as represented. It had everything we needed for a week at the beach. All twelve of us had a great time. Shelley and Jan even went so far as to rent another golf cart when one of them needed repair. Thanks for that. Kids spent way more time in the pool than I thought they would, but it did rain off and on the week we were there. We would definitely rent again on returning to North Myrtle Beach.

Fido friendly ...

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were happy to find a pet-friendly destination and enjoyed our stay. The lower unit was tastefully furnished, very clean and had more than ample kitchenware.

The owners were very helpful and the property matched the description. A beautiful, long beach was just a short walk away and good restaurants weren't far off either.

The pool was heated which helped make up for the cool weather the week we were there. We recommend PP1 for a Fido- friendly family get away!

Best Property We Ever Rented!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our entire family, 11 adults, five children six and under and two Boston terriers. This property was perfect for our large family and we have already reserved it for the same period this year. We live in the area and rent our own property in the summer and we have also rented numerous properties in the Grand Strand over the last 30+ years. They is the best property we have ever rented, especially for families. The closets on both level have a lot of supplies for babies and small children. The house was immaculate, and we know that in this area that is hard to achieve. Shelley is a great person to work with and is very accommodating. Having golf carts available for our use was a big plus. I can't say enough good things about this property and the Kraskas.

Owner's Response: We are very blessed to have such nice families stay at our properties! We do strive to keep all our properties clean and well maintained. We also provide 2 cribs on site at each property along with lots of other baby items for your use. It is hard enough packing for the family without having to worry about taking all the baby equipment as well. The golf carts are lots of fun to drive all around the area as well as to the beach! We try to make your vacation experience as relaxing as possible! Thanks to all our guests and Happy New Year! The Kraska's

Car: recommended

PP1 is located on 16th Ave. South in North Myrtle Beach. This area is also called Crescent Beach. Our beach house is very close to PP1. We love this area because it is very family freindly and you can ride bikes on the beach anytime of the day. We love that golf carts are allowed to be driven all over our beach area,to the grocery, parks, tennis courts, shops, restaurants, etc...We have 2 golf carts for our guests that rent PP1. The beaches are pet friendly. We are close to the inlets to the ocean which is great because we have a boat. You can rent a boat, go deep sea fishing, go out on a dinner cruise or one of the gambling boats, etc...because we are close to all the marina's and inlets to the ocean. We are very close to the nicest restaurants, shopping areas, golf courses, shows and attractions, parks, and the best and widest beaches in the area. Our beach access is never crowded and very wide with beautiful white sand. You love this area as much as we do! I am sure of it!

Other Activities: We love to go to oue favorite pizza place right at the end of 16th ave. across the street. It is Benitos wood fired pizzeria with great Italian food and pizza. During the summer you must go to the main street carnival and ride the ferris wheel overlooking the ocean. Our grandchildren love to go and we have a great time always. For a drink by the sea or a great burger there is Molly Darcy's at the end of 17th Ave. South on the Ocean. There is a deck overlooking the Ocean which is great for a beer or sandwich. Mr. G's ice cream and hotdog shop is also on 17th Ave. South across from the Beach Shop where you can pick up anything you might need. You can drive the golf carts to any of these places. There is a very nice park across 17 directly behind Krispy Cream which is also close to PP1 for hot doughnuts anytime of the day. We are close to all the attractions, shopping, restaurants, golfing, fishing, water sports (also on the beach at 17th Ave. South).

Golf: There are numerous golf courses near the house in North Myrtle Beach. There are 2 right across the street at the end of 16th Ave. South one is Beech Wood and the other is Possum Trott. There are really so many excellent courses in this area! It is a golfers dream come true! I would recommend just do a search for golf courses in the Myrtle Beach Area. We are just a mile from the Myrtle Beach area. North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach are one in the same really. North Myrtle Beach is a very family friendly area with all the beach homes and golf carts etc...

Ski: We are not a ski resort so this does not apply but I can give additional information about other activities in this area. We have been to all the shows. The new pirate show is great but I would make reservations asap. We are very close to Bare Foot Landing which has tons of shops and restaurants. Broadway at the beach was fashioned after Bare Foot Landing. The House of Blues is great for teens and college age children with all the bands etc...We are close to the Tanger Outlets which are awesome. They are very nice and I would definately recommend them. Main Street is fun to walk around. It is very close and known for the Shag clubs for dancing and the open air pavillon where you can dance under the stars next to our beautiful beach. It is the Shag Capital of the World. You can buy shag shoes in the shops and take Shag lessons. The ice cream shop the Sugar Shack on Main St. has excellent flavors of ice cream and highly recommended. Have a great time in North Myrtle Beach!
