About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 18

Palmettos is an impressive place to set up camp for your first – or your next – North Myrtle Beach vacation. Its oceanfront setting is certainly a major perk. Sunrises are remarkable if you can bear to rise so early; you can always head back to bed and sleep late afterward – if you’re not seduced to indulge a long, lazy walk before the day’s crowd arrives.

This non-smoking North Myrtle Beach rental, in a popular community called Tilghman Beach, boasts five bedrooms and five and a half baths. The kitchen is supersized – with two refrigerators and two dining tables. A gas grill adds other options for meal time; there’s nothing more delicious than fresh seafood cooking in an ocean breeze. Some guests can relax on the porch swing and soak in the ocean view while the chef masterminds his or her meal.

A total of eighteen guests can find vacation bliss at Palmettos. High-speed Internet access is available for your use during your North Myrtle Beach vacation. Four televisions and two DVD players will make your stay as comfortable as home. The gas fireplace is a luxurious component of Palmettos, particular in winter or on unexpectedly breezy days. And there’s a washer and dryer to tackle every day’s batch of laundry.

Move your beach vacation to a whole other level by adding visits to nearby theatres and shopping, dining at world class restaurants, playing golf and putt-putt, and tackling water sports of every sort. At home, out and about, or reclining beside this ocean, this North Myrtle Beach rental is going to make everyone in your party exceedingly happy.

The kitchen is ready to handle all 18 people and is well stocked with cookware, dishes and utensils so you can all do more than just make a pot of coffee. There are 2 dining room tables that sit 8 each. Two refrigerators in this rental mean all your drinks can be chilling! Host a cookout with the grill that is provided for you at this North Myrtle Beach house. A quick trip to a seafood market means fresh fish, shrimp and clams for your next oceanfront barbecue.

High-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the house and on the porch for your use during your North Myrtle Beach vacation. Four televisions and two DVD players will make your stay feel as comfortable as home. And all of the bedrooms have a ceiling fan for peaceful sleeping in any weather. Put your feet up as you sit in one of the six front porch rockers of this vacation rental. The porch swing beckons you to rest and relax while enjoying sea breezes.

Palmettos is a vacation rental found in the charming Tilghman Beach section of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The house is walking distance to Historic Ocean Drive where you can shag the night away to a live beach music band. For a great beach vacation, visit the nearby theaters for a resounding good time. Dine on succulent seafood and play a challenging round of Myrtle Beach golf! After a full day on the beach and playing around town, retreat to your oceanfront vacation rental for relaxation!

About Will Willimon

Our family bought and remodeled this home with frequent trips every year for the past 20+ years. We immediately named it 'Palmettos' because of the 18 Palmetto trees lining the driveway. We now have 4 grandchildren who love to come and play on the beach or ride their toys in the driveway. You will know this is family owned when you arrive and see the pictures throughout the house of our happy memories at the beach.

Will Willimon purchased this house in 1998

Why Will Willimon chose Ocean Drive Beach

A priority for family is that Palmettos is maintained by using a local agent. We never have to worry about issues that might arise during a vacation. In using a local agent, any maintenance or problems are addressed immediately and is never an added expense to the renter. We also include at no extra charge professional house cleaning so Palmettos is clean when you get there and clean after you leave. In addition, there is optional linen service provided through the house agent if you do not want to bring your own linens.

What makes this house unique

One of the intangible benefits of staying at Palmettos is that it is on North Myrtle Beach's 'private beach'. No need to worry about spring breakers or large crowds. Often, the stretch of beach in front of our house has very few people in front. You always have beach to play on even when the tide is at its highest.

We rent to families and responsible adults only. No house parties. Must be at least 25 years of age to rent our home.

Good place and great location

  • 4 of 5

We were 12 friends who stayed and thoroughly enjoyed our yearly reunion

at this property.

The location is great and maintained and steps away from the beach....

So, just chill on the beach or on a great back deck as you wish...

I wish the owner had supplied basic toiletry...

Also, it was a first to pay extra for linen and bedding. Though not that expansive,

it sure was an eye opener.

Other than this minor things, the property is greatly located and walkable to the Main Street for shopping.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property to all who are seeking fun and sun in North Myrtle Beach..

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 35 years and I think we have FINALLY found the PERFECT vacationing home that suits our needs, our kids needs and accommodates our large family for a week. The house is spacious but yet cozy enough to gather for meals or card games. The rocking chairs and yard were where we spent most of our time in the evenings and nights. It was a FABULOUS vacation.

This is a truly fantastic house at a great price. There are enough rooms for the entire family to have privacy. A backyard, private beach access, and two blocks from downtown North Myrtle makes this ideal vacation spot in the area. The interior is nice but so much that it feels like a museum. It is the perfect location for a beach week. I recommend it to any large groups such as family reunions.

Awesome home and great location. Boys loved having their own area down stairs to hangout and play games. Very short walk to beach. Easy to walk to and from beach to make lunch or take a break from the beautiful beach. Thanks for sharing your paradise with us.

Long-time fan of the Palmettos

  • 5 of 5

Been vacationing here with the in-laws for decades now and the palmettos never disappoints. Located conveniently where the hotels end and houses start, it's the best of both worlds - close enough to Myrtle Beach without that crowded feel. The property is well-maintained and appliances always in the best condition. Great property for family beach photos but try to stay off the dunes.
