About Kathi McKnight

The 'Black Pearl' vacation condo is owned by the Auble and McKnight families. We grew up in South Carolina and Ohio and always summered on the Grand Strand. Our parents originally discovered that 'A Place at the Beach IV' is the best vacation spot on the Strand and bought this condo for use by family and guests.

Kathi McKnight purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kathi McKnight chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

A Place at the Beach IV is ideally situated on a secluded dead end street yet provides easy access to all the best the Myrtle Beach area has to offer. This condo faces the morning sun on the more quiet and relaxing side of the resort. The beach here is beautiful and it has Life Guards for safety during the summer season. There are lots of fun areas to discover nearby. A couple favorites are the quaint fresh shrimp and fruit stand a couple blocks away and a waterway inlet up the beach where kids catch crabs and other sea creatures.

What makes this condo unique

• Great unobstructed view of ocean and pier

• Morning sun, afternoon shade on balcony

• Top Floor provides best view & most privacy

• The condo is constantly updated to make sure guests of all ages have all the amenities enjoyed at their own home a beach! After all, we vacation here too! We think you will love 'The Black Pearl'!

Great week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and is in a great location with not-so-crowded beach that we love. A few restaurants within walking distance. All linens included so you don't have to pack so much stuff. Only downfall is the master bathroom is pretty tiny. A larger person would have trouble using it; however, other bathroom has plenty of room. Owner was great to work with. Would recommend this condo to anyone.

thanks for sharing

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for sharing you vacation condo. The Black Pearl was very clean. Looks just like the pictures. One of the best things was the beach chairs that are provided. There is no need to bring them from home. The kitchen provided everything we needed & then some. It was great to hear the bands playing at Apache Pier. Also enjoyed the fireworks from the balcony. Just knowing the kids didn't have to cross any roads getting to the beach. Just a reminder that you must post your parking pass in your vehicles front window so the guards can see them. We will look into renting again. Kathi thanks for all your help answering all my questions in a timely fashion. That means a lot when renting a condo. Thanks again for all you help. Best of luck.

What a great week!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. My teenage grandsons loved the short walk to the pier for ice cream or just across the street for subs. The condo has everything you need plus chairs for the beach. We were there for a Cal Ripkin tournament and it was an easy 15 minute drive; it is very convenient for everything. Several other families staying at the same complex said The Black Pearl was very nice. We really hope to return soon.
