Our Oceanfront Retreat is a 3 bedroom 3 full bath private home that is located on the 14th floor in the prestigious North Hampton Tower in Kingston Plantation. Situated on the North Corner of the building, this direct oceanfront residence offers a peaceful retreat for those who want to relax and enjoy Myrtle Beach at its finest.
Our condo has a “beachy’ theme and has been professionally decorated and recently updated. All of the carpets were replaced with engineered plank flooring and the “wall of windows" was replaced in the living room and dining area. The new doors make the view from the inside even more spectacular.
The most talked about feature of our condo is the huge 736 square foot wrap-around balcony that has entrances from two of the bedrooms and the living room. This huge outdoor space is fully furnished with two dining areas that seat 8, chaise lounges, chairs and side tables. There are plenty of lanterns with candles for lighting at dusk so that you can linger longer and relax at the end of the day.
At different times of the day, during the year, you can see osprey, porpoises, pelicans and other wildlife from the balcony. The sounds of the surf crashing on the shore, along with the sounds of the ever-present seagulls provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The most amazing part for me is to watch the sunrise. You can always see the sunrise from the balcony, but at most times during the year, you can lie in bed and see the sunrise right before your eyes without even getting out of bed.
The kitchen is fully-equipped and includes quartz countertops, glass backsplash, white cabinetry with brushed stainless handles, stainless steel sink, plenty of storage, tile flooring, white appliances, coffee maker, Keurig, toaster oven, blender, slow cooker, George Foreman grill and more.
The dining area has seating for 6 at the table plus additional seating at breakfast bar. Large glass, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors provide ocean views while dining.
The living room area features a large flat screen TV and DVD player. There are a total of THREE bathrooms and three BEDROOMS which sleep 8 in FOUR beds.
The first Bedroom has a king sized bed with an adjoining bath with combination tub/shower, vanity with double sinks and granite countertop, flat screen TV and DVD player and a walk-in closet. There is a sliding glass door that provides an exit to the balcony and sitting areas.
The second Bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and an attached bath with walk-in shower, vanity with granite counter top, a flat-screen TV and DVD player. There is a sliding glass door that provides an exit to the balcony and sitting areas.
The third bedroom includes two queen sized beds, a flat-screen TV and DVD player. All three bedrooms have a view of the ocean. The third bedroom has a sliding glass door that provides an awesome view but does not exit to the balcony.
The third bathroom is located in the hall and includes a vanity with granite countertop and a combination tub/shower. There is a laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer and a drying rack off of the hallway.
