Fantastic location! Near everything, but not over crowded.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic. It had everything we needed, plus a few extras. We spent hours on the balcony, just admiring the view. Walking distance to a few bar and grills, and a short drive to nicer restaurants. The pier was great and the kids loved the arcade. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool at night and walking the beach at all hours. We did not want to leave. I highly recommend this condo. We fit 6 people comfortably, with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. We can't wait to go back!

Great time, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay at the Black Pearl. So close to the water and the rooms had everything we needed. The AC works beautifully which was a godsend in this weather. Big shout out to Kathi McKnight for being so helpful. We will definitely be back.

So much better than the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with the Black Pearl while searching for a family beach getaway. The pictures do not do it justice. It is the perfect place for escaping to the beach. There is a great view of the beach from the deck as promised. You have beach access by simply walking down a hall and a few steps. The condo has all the amenities for a family with children down to dishes specifically for kids. The owner even provides beach chairs for guests use! The outdoor pool is perfect for a quick dip or when the kids don't wanna beach, which for us was only once. The Apache pier is a short walk down the beach with a nice gift store, arcade for kids, and great view off the pier. We visited two local eatery's called "Brisket" and Mike's Mini's Bar and Grill great food and both different types!! Must try! Kathi, the owner, of The Black Pearl was great to work with. We hope to return next year!

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 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'!
