About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Dan and Kate's Place is located in beautiful North Litchfield Beach just about 300 steps from a beach access. Dan and Kate's Place is the best of the beach and you get a bit of privacy too! Don't let our booked calendar deter you. Please fill out the form anyway and we may be able to take care of your vacation needs after all!

Dan and Kate's Place sits in a private cul-de-sac backing up to the Huntington Beach State Park. The house has an open and spacious floor plan with five bedrooms- three bedrooms on the main level and two on the lower level. Each level has its own family room making it great for a family with teenagers or two families vacationing together.

When entering Cricket Loop you'll notice the gorgeous old Oak Trees from which the Spanish moss hangs. Dan and Kate's Place gives the feeling of seclusion while still only steps from the beach as it is tucked back off of the' Loop' down a driveway bordering the woods of the park. When entering the house you'll notice the beautiful woodwork and exposed wooden beams on the vaulted ceiling along with the open large family room with fireplace and 40' flat screen television adjacent to a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. This room looks over a breezy screened in back porch which stretches the length of the house from where you can enjoy the sounds of the breaking waves. The bedrooms on this level consist of a spacious king master bedroom with private bath , a queen bedroom and a room with two twin beds that have a full bath between them. Down a spiral staircase you will find another huge family room with another 40' screen television, dvd player and game system and the glass doors overlook a patio in the backyard. There are two bedrooms on this level. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two twins with another full bathroom between the bedrooms. There are televisions in each bedroom. The laundry room is located on the lower level as well as a storage area for beach chairs, beach bikes,and various beach toys for your enjoyment.

Dan and Kate's Place is located on the northern end of North Litchfield Beach. This area of the beach is less crowded because there are no public beach parking lots or condos.There is plenty to do though! The house is located a little over a mile from the grocery store, within a few miles of Murrels Inlet which is famous for its many seafood restaurants lining a beautiful walkway along the inlets and a few miles from the eclectic Pawley's Island Shops. For even more activity, you can drive north 20 miles or so and be in the middle of the action of Myrtle Beach! Dan and Kate's Place is really 'the best of the beach'!!!!!!

About Denise Dietz

The Dietz family purchased Dan and Kate's Place (formerly The Cove) in June 2011 after looking in North Litchfield for nearly 3 years! They were looking for the perfect vacation get away and believe they found it! Dan and Kate's Place is named after their two children.

Denise Dietz purchased this house in 2011

Why Denise Dietz chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

It is close to a beautiful beach but also seems secluded since it is tucked up to the edge of a park. The house is great for multi generational families because of the two separate sitting areas, one which is also a game room. Our favorite part is the screened in porch.

What makes this house unique

We love North Litchfield. We grew up vacationing in nearby Myrtle Beach and we still love that for the fun it has to offer. But by being in North Litchfield we have a quieter area with fewer people on the beaches and can get to the action in Myrtle in less than 30 minutes. It really is having the best of both worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. The house is great, the beach is wonderful and we had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends. Maxi-Pedi at New Nails was a great way to end the week. We hope to come back and stay here again. Go Gamecocks!

What a great beach house and we have been to many!!! The beautiful setting among Spanish moss and old southern trees was magical. Very private and quiet and well appointed. TVs in all rooms and very comfortable beds. Relaxing days on the beach, followed by great dining and shopping nearby made for an extremely relaxing and memorable vacation for our family. Unique layout gives amazing privacy for larger groups. Would recommend this house wholeheartedly and can't wait to go back!!

My husband and I and 5 other adults stayed here for the first time the week of Sept.11, 2016. We all loved everything about this place! More than enough space, it was actually like having two separate living quarters.

Each bedroom had its own large TV. More than enough bathrooms! The kitchen had anything you would ever need. The back porch was an awesome place to hang out. This place had chairs, a wagon, umbrella and kids toys to take to the beach. We enjoyed every minute we had there! We were so close to all the great restaurants. The beach was beautiful and was never crowded! Great house, great location. Looking forward to going back! Great place to take your family!

Great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

6 ladies rented this house for 4 nights for our 25th annual girls' getaway. It was perfect......plenty of space, close to the beach, attractions and restaurants. The house is big enough that we could have easily fit more people. The screened porch was the most used space, and we appreciated having a dedicated game table for cards. A metal spiral stairway accesses the lower level which was no issue for us, but could be for some. We liked the fact that it is set amongst the trees with plenty of shade and privacy. There was a bit of a musty odor upon arrival, but it quickly resolved. We visited Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park, each just minutes away. One evening we drove to North Myrtle Beach to have dinner and see a show at the Alabama Theater. Although listed on VRBO it is managed by a real estate company. They could not have been any nicer or more helpful, even sending an employee immediately when we lost the key on the beach and locked ourselves out.

Perfect Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect summer get away for our extended family! Loved the back porch especially and the closeness to the beach. The house felt like a home away from home and had everything we needed for our stay at North Litchfield! We will back back again soon!

Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this relaxing and comfortable beach house for the past two winters and look forward to spending many more winters there. The kitchen is well stocked and the house is just minutes from the beach. It's a good place to stay for a week, a month or longer.
