About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Free Wi-Fi! Completely remodeled and designer furnished large penthouse at this exclusive resort. Spectacular oceanfront, coastline, plantation & lake views from 4 separate balconies.

Huge Master Bedroom suite features a lighted, pedestal King bed with private, oceanfront balcony. Master Bathroom features steam shower and double vanity.

The large Guest Bedroom has two Queen beds, one bunk bed, a private balcony and separate entrance. Guest Bathroom has Jacuzzi tub. Linens are not provided but may be rented for an additional $80.

Kingston Plantation is a 145 acre ocean front community with freshwater lakes (bring your fishing rods), lush landscaping, rolling wooded terrain, walking trails, beautiful dunes, secluded beaches and 24/7 gated and roaming security.

Kingston Plantation also offers a world-class health club with fitness & weight rooms, large indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, indoor racquet ball courts and numerous lighted, clay tennis courts. The fee for use of the health club is $10 per person per day.

2013 is our eighth rental season and all furnishings, bedding, etc. are like-new. Don't pay more for a unit that is only ocean view and not nearly as clean or nice as this special penthouse condo.

We also have two other oceanfront condos that are close by to this one. The VRBO numbers are 7861 and 62083 so please check those out also!

About Robert Dicks

My wife and I had the opportunity to purchase this beautiful condo from the original owner who had just previously totally remodeled it. We also own two other oceanfront rental condos in the area and when we saw the spectacular view and luxury of not only this condo but of Kingston Plantation in general, we knew that our guests would really appreciate and love staying here. We live right outside the gates of the Plantation with our three young sons in the Arcadian Shores Golf Club area. Because of this we are able to be actively involved in the rental and upkeep of our properties. We take great pride in offering very up to date, clean and accommodating condos for our guests to vacation in. We personally inspect each condo prior to check-in to make sure that everything is indeed clean and operating properly. I have also been a local REALTOR and SC REAL ESTATE LICENSEE in the area for the past 30 years and would be glad to assist any of our guests who themselves are interested in purchasing their own vacation or permanent home on the Grand Strand.

Robert Dicks purchased this condo in 2005

Why Robert Dicks chose South Carolina

Kingston Plantation is so convenient to everything that the Grand Strand offers. Tanger Factory Outlet, Wal-Mart, Myrtle Beach Mall with Bass Pro Shop and a movie theater and Restaurant Row with all the great seafood restaurants are all within a couple of miles of the property. Barefoot Landing and Broadway At The Beach are both within approx. 5 miles. But, once you pass thru the gates of Kingston Plantation you feel as though you are secluded in your own tropical paradise. There's no other place like it on the the Grand Strand!

What makes this condo unique

Waking up to the sound of the waves and the sunrise over the ocean are spectacular! We also enjoy the great ocean and coastline views from every room and the whirlpool tub and the steam shower. Our condo is located on the top floor and at the end of the hallway so you rarely hear any noise from other guests in the building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From guestbook: Condo was perfect! We have stayed in many four star resorts here but this condo's views are unparalleled - just stunning! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great condo with a priceless, peaceful view!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the condo to anyone who is looking for a place that is reasonably priced, clean, well cared for and that has amazing views from any one of the four balconies. The condo is very private and in fact we didn't hear any of our neighbors the entire stay. Because the unit is 16 floors up the only sound you can hear is that of the ocean. We never heard other people, cars, planes, etc.! It was amazingly relaxing and just what we were looking for!!

Lastly, Robert was very a pleasure to meet and very accommodating throughout. This was a great stay and we will definitely return!

This is the second year in a row that I've stayed at Robert's clean and well maintained penthouse condo. It is obvious that he takes pride in his property! The views are spectacular from any of the 4 balconies. It also has all the necessities needed to feel like home! It is close to many restaurants, shopping and grocery stores, which leave much more time for the main attraction-The Beach! I plan to return again in the future!

Amazing beach condo

  • 5 of 5

The previous review says it all! I stayed here with my 3 teenage girls and what's so great is they had their own separate room to themselves with their own balcony. My wife and I loved the privacy that the suite offered. The location is perfect for fishing too, as it's only about a 10 minute stroll to the Apache Pier. We didn't venture too far from the condo during our stay because there are plenty of good restaurants in the area. Flamingo, Chuck's Steak House, Bojangles, Giant Crab, whatever you want it's available.

The condo is fully equipped, we bought some groceries and laundry/dish soap and that's about it.

The only negative I can think of is there's only one elevator on the beachfront side of the building, so on some occasions it was a bit crowded.

The Pirates Adventure show is amazing. I was hesitant to spend the cash worried that the kids would be too old but my 17 year old absolutely loved it, and she gets bored the quickest. It's a must see.

Ripley's Aquarium was worth the time also. Totally fun!

Bass Pro Shop is right down the road so you can get hooked up with some tackle and an $11 license to fish off the beach, and I strongly recommend it if you like fishing. I caught sharks and a whole slew of different things right in front of the condo every morning watching the sun come up and late at night.

Overall my daughter said it best "Dad, this is the nicest place yet!" and we've been all over.

Fantastic stay at South Hampton

  • 5 of 5

Just wrapped up a wonderful family vacation in MB. Robert's South Hampton unit was far greater than the pictures make it out to be. Lots of room and many conveniences of home. Bedrooms were spacious and beds were extremely comfortable! All the balcony views were amazing. Really enjoyed the ocean front view from the penthouse floor. SH may not be the newest building in the Kingston Plantation resort but I would say it has the best beach location and pools were not crowded at all.

Our minor constructive criticism is the unit could use some additional conveniences in kitchen such as some plastic cups,bowls for kids (we were always nervous them using glass/ceramic). Guys this is how great unit was that I had to really bring this up to bring balance to review. *smile*

I snuck over to the embassy pool and bar (even though I didn't have a wrist band) and will say I am glad we didn't pay twice the cost booking through them. I was also worried that my kids would see the "splash park" and be disappointed but it is obvious once you see it they hired a really nice marketing firm to take pictures as its nothing like the website makes it out to be. It literally is one slide and a few splash rings in a kiddie pool. Kids never even brought it up.

As several have mentioned Robert, the owner, really is a class act. Super responsive and very patient with all the questions we had. Even though he was out on family vacation himself, he quickly responded to my text and helped resolve an issue quickly. Things happen but his responsiveness is what sets him apart.

Kingston Plantation is very convenient 5-10 min drive to many restaurants, grocery stores, super Walmart and outlets. Only a 10-15 minute drive to Barefoot landing.

Restaurant suggestions: The flying fish, Chesapeake, and Mr. Fish. All wonderful.

Highly recommend Pirate Voyage. A bit pricey but really a great show with a very good food. My kids absolutely loved it.

Great Condo, Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and spacious for a two-bedroom. It looks very much like the pictures on the website. The owner was very friendly and helped us with idea of where to eat and visit while on vacation. The condo is very close to everything you would want to see in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Parking was never a problem. My 9 and 10 year old loved the bunk beds, my wife and I loved sitting on the balcony looking out at the beautiful panoramic view of the ocean. We plan on returning and staying here in the future. I would certainly recommend this rental to anyone!
