About the property

Historic Fishing Village Home, Salt Marsh Creek View, Deep Water Dock, 3 Porches

"This was our second annual stay at King's Krest during april. Although the weather was not as cooperative as we had hoped, we still had a great time, and enjoyed the house even more than last year. We spend the days kayaking, crabbing, sitting on the dock, etc. At night, we walk to one of the many wonderful Inlet restaurants. There's no better place to unwind and enjoy family. The 100 year old house is wonderful, and the family has done a great job preserving the history and heritage of the place. Litchfield re service was excellent." - R. Hucks, Florence SC

Always my favorite week of the summer

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at King's Krest. The house was looking at its best, and the bathhouse was a great addition- my kids loved it! Couldn't ask for a better vacation home!

Oh, What a Bath House

  • 5 of 5

Of the many times I have visited King's Krest I must tell you that the bath house is the greatest addition to an already great inlet home. You family members did good on this one addition! Thanks and the stay was wonderful, house was clean and all WiFi, communications and appliances worked perfectly. We pulled the two grills around on the water side and cooked on grills amost every day. Thanks for having such a wonderful place.

What an Historic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years I have stayed at King's Krest but now that the family that owns it has really put forth the effort to historically remodel, it's such a pleasure. Sitting on one of the three porches, watching all the wildlife all during the day in the comfort of a 100+ year old home is amazing. I highly reccomend King's Krest to any family that wants to enjoy Murrells Inlet like no other property on the creek.

Kings Krest is awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a long weekend at Kings Krest! This house is so wonderful for family and friends!!! There are 3 porches for relaxing or playing games, a wonderful porch for sharing family meals, and the best dock ever - We enjoyed crabbing at low tide and boating all through the day! You can even walk to all the nearby wonderful restaurants! You must try staying at Kings Krest!!! You will fall in love with this house - as you will feel as though you have stepped back in time!!!! Can't wait to return soon!!

Kings Krest is a nice old house that had served my buddies and I well on our annual fishing trip. We will not, however, be returning in the future. Unfortunately a 52% increase in the weekly rental from last year is not only exorbitant, it makes the house non competitive with similar properties. It's a shame but the old adage of never give a customer a reason to look because they may find something better applies here. They did and we did!

Owner's Response: Of the five Murrells Inlet vacation rentals listed on VRBO that sleep 10 to 12, four are close on seasonal pricing, which includes Kings Krest. The low season rate was long overdue to be increased, and we are glad you could enjoy that lower rate on your first two stays with us. We have to agree the fifth rental, which does not include bed/bath linens, is indeed a great deal! Hope the fish are biting on your next trip!
