This is the refurbished condo on the beach I have always wanted. Stay here one time and you will begin to consider it 'your' place too. This is not a hotel room. Lovingly restored condo with loads of character and a wonderful panoramic view of the beach and the entire south end of Myrtle Beach.

Palace #511 is not a hotel room - but 'your' new beach condo you will want to come back to year after year. Pools. Sauna. Hot tubs. Internet. HBO. Workout room. Restaurant.

About Jim Mills

Writer/journalist from Washington, DC who headed south for the winter and decided to stay. Although I wasn't born in the south -- I absolutely love South Carolina, Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and the entire area.

Jim Mills purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jim Mills chose Myrtle Beach

The Palace has tons of amenities -- sauna, steam room, hot tubs, work-out room, putting green, pools, restaurant/bar -- and is very convenient to supermarket, restaurants, medical care etc. Just perfectly located. If you wanted to park the car and walk everywhere during your time here -- that is very doable.

What makes this condo unique

Literally True -- Sometimes when I am on the phone or watching TV the sound of the waves hitting the shore is 'too loud' and I have to close the balcony door. Can be walking on the beach in 60 seconds.

Refurbished comfortable condo with beautiful hardwood floors, stainless steel kitchen, new furniture. Tastefully decorated, freshly painted. Beautiful panoramic view of ocean and entire south end of Myrtle Beach. Balcony is perfect place to catch afternoon rays. Five minutes to the airport and Market Common, the Palace is loaded with amenities: pools, sauna, steam room, work-out room, beachfront restaurant and bar. Safe, secure building with indoor entrances and a 24-hour front desk. Brand New 42-inch flat screen in living room. HBO. Another flat screen TV in bedroom. Decent collection of DVDs, CDs, books, and games. I have lovingly restored this unit over the past year. If you want a standard hotel room, the Hampton Inn is just down the beach. This is the beach condo I have always wanted -- and I want folks who stay here to view it as 'their' place too. Would love same folks to come here year after year - Jim

Great place for the price

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo the week before Hurricane Irma made landfall. We were very pleased with this condo. We loved lots of the amenities that it had. The owner had thought through most of the concerns and needs that one would have during their stay. Even though the room is towards the back of the hotel as far as the layout and design of the hotel goes, it doesn't feel like its not ocean front. We have stayed at the Palace several times, but this was the first for this condo. It was the nicest one thus far that we have stayed at in the Palace. My husband and I, especially him, loved the décor of the place. Antiques, mixed with modern beachy was throughout the condo. My husband loved the baseball décor, and the first picture he noticed was the Babe Ruth pictures. We did not use any of the dvd's provided, granted we weren't in the room enough to because we were outside mostly or out in town, however, my husband loved the collection. I loved the comfy couches and views from the couch along with all the amenities that he included in the kitchen. Several board games and card games were provided. I especially liked the coffee table/chest that had throws inside, they were a nice touch while watching tv at night. The owner was very very easy to work with. He checked on us throughout the week to make sure everything was going smoothly. He was very pleasant and wanted to make sure everything was perfect. Next time we plan on going to Myrtle Beach we will most likely try to stay at this place. We loved it and liked working with the owner! I highly recommend it.

I really appreciated how clean this place was. Very convenient to airport and it's right on the beach. Great view of one of the pools and ocean. We would stay here again. Jim( the owner) was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed a week with my husband and 2 children. This condo had everything that we could have asked for. It was a roomy and comfortable space. The kitchen had everything we needed, including 2 coffee makers, a rice cooker, toaster, and loads of pots & pans. The owner has made excellent use of space for storage, which made everything in the condo user friendly. The owner, himself was very attentive. He made sure we had all the instructions and helpful hints available. He also called our attention to the games, movies, and gadgets in the condo that my kids truly enjoyed. I have rated our stay in the condo itself, a 5. My only complaint is that the resort needs more elevators and the staff at the resort should be more friendly. Luckily, we didn't have to deal with them much.

Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful retreat!! Everything you could ever need in a vacation getaway without any hassles. The pictures are very accurate for this condo. I have to say the owner has thought of everything when it comes to using his place. It was wonderful to have him suggest great places to go and visit to help keep the vacation enjoyable. I love being able to go out on the balcony and just watch and listen to the ocean waves crash. What a wonderful sound. The owner was very easy to contact when you had a question or concern and always welcomed the call or text. I not only will pass his information along to friends, I can't wait to go back again next year!

This is a very clean and well maintained condo right on the beach in Myrtle Beach. The pictures are very accurate. Nice furniture and very comfortable. The owner is very easy to work with and extremely helpful with any questions we had. He also recommended great restaurants and places to see. I would recommend this condo for anyone that wants a relaxing beach vacation.
