About Diane and Jim

We purchased this condo in July 2015. We lived in the Northeast looked forward to retiring to Myrtle Beach. We love the beautiful weather and the wonderful way of life in Myrtle Beach.

Diane and Jim purchased this condo in 2015

Why Diane and Jim chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We chose this property because it was direct oceanfront and has walls of windows which allow us to see the ocean from every window. We also loved the 700 sq. foot L-shaped covered balcony which allowed us to enjoy the spectacular views of the ocean, pelicans, osprey and porpoises and awesome al fresco dining.

What makes this condo unique

When I walked into the beach home, the first thing that I saw was the view of the ocean and the huge wrap- around balcony that allowed me to see "ocean everywhere". I also love that there are three bedrooms and all of them have a view and you can hear the sounds of the surf. I also love the wrap-around bacony that is 700 sq feet. A collection of chairs are set up outside each of the bedrooms. A sliding glass door opens to the balcony from bedroom #1 and #2.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time during our stay. We never dreamed that the view would be so breathtaking! Diane made me feel at home from the moment I booked our stay. This was an immaculate, beautifully decorated condo, with views that couldn't have been any better! It was so nice of Jim to call the evening we arrived to make sure we got in ok, and to answer any questions I had. We are so excited to take our kids back very soon! Thank you Diane and Jim!!

Loved it!!!!! What a find!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What you see online is what you get and that is a great thing! Kingston Plantation, North Hampton and especially this property is wonderful. We have stayed at Kingston Plantation several times and, by far, this is the best place we have rented. When you walk in, it is clean, warm, inviting and beautiful. Diane and Jim aim to please. They have fresh cookies and bottled water awaiting your stay. Once you settle in, is when you notice all the other subtle niceties they offer. We will let you discover those for yourself. :) It did not seem we were renting their place, but were guests at their home. Jim and Diane could not have been nicer and easier to work with. They called us the day after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. The balcony is wonderful and became our favorite hangout. The view is incredible! We chose to eat out every night, but found most everything we needed to cook a meal, if we had chosen to do that. We never had to wait for an elevator and the staff at North Hampton is so nice and helpful. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Jim and Diane for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Spectacular Views and HG TV Worthy!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 1401 North Hampton, in Kingston Plantation, could not have been nicer. From the moment we walked through the door, we were met with views of the Atlantic Ocean and decorating that were both top notch.

The owners had left us a "Welcome" tray of warm cookies and biscotti, along with start-ups of coffee, water, detergent, etc., which meant that we didn't have to go to the grocery until the next day.

The unit was impeccably decorated with an upscale beach theme throughout,....without feeling that you were caught in a time warp from the 70's.

The access from two of the bedrooms onto the HUGE wrap-around "porch" was a plus. The third bedroom had the same floor-to-ceiling glass, with an ocean front view; however, you could not access it from that particular bedroom. With the glass windows and sliding glass double doors off of the living room, it was not really a problem.

The unit was spotless, and believe me, that's always the first thing I check. Even the baseboards and sliding glass door tracks were free from dust and sand.

The property had several pools and hot tubs from which to choose, and were open for all of the Kingston Plantation guests.... All within a short walking distance.

We have nothing but good things to say about the homeowners, Jim and Diane. They were responsive to our requests and questions. We had a small plumbing issue on the second day, and a plumber was dispatched within 1-2 hours..... problem fixed.

We hope to return again next year, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. This was by far the nicest "home away from home" unit we've ever stayed in.. We could tell that the owners have put a lot of time and money into making this the 5 Star property that it is.

Second time as good as the first

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time this year that we rented this beautiful condo. Diane and Jim truly go out of their way to make it a memorable vacation. The condo is decorated so pretty and the balcony is unbelievable, size and the view. Will always recommend this special place to our family and friends.

It was the perfect setting for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation could not have been more relaxing. Our family consists of 5 adults and 2 children. The condo was a perfect size to accommodate our family. Our son in law is not a fan of sun and surf but was quite pleased with overlooking the ocean on the beautiful balcony!

The condo was immaculate, very well stocked, and cozy!

Diane and Jim checked in with us via phone the first day and we're very pleasant and helpful with any questions. The cookies waiting for us when we got there in the kitchen was a nice surprise and lasted less than 5 minutes. It was so nice to have sand toys and a raft and a boggie board waiting for us on the side balcony as we didn't have room to bring all that. The kids thought you put the toys there just for them... very nice personal touch! All grocery stores and restaurants are within minutes of the condo. One night we went to Jimmy Buffets margaritaville and had a great family fun night.... yes it was a very long wait (approx 1 1/2 hrs) but we knew that going in and we took turns waiting while the rest of the family shopped and looked around the different little novelty shops. Our 3 yr old and 11 yr old were amazed at all the activity there and loved the balloon hats made for them by people on stilts.

Otherwise, we stayed at the condo and enjoyed waking the beach, laying by the pool and relaxing .... just being family!

Thank you Diane and Jim for opening your home to us. We could not have enjoyed it more!!!

The condo was fantastic. Clean and stocked with all the necessities of a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

1401 North Hampton provided great accommodations for our family of five...plus 2 Grandparents for part of the stay. The views from the HUGE wrap-around deck were unbelievable. I don't think we ate more than a couple of meals inside as the atmosphere on the deck was great. The entire condo was updated and extremely comfortable to live in. Kingston Plantation is well located near shopping and attractions in North Myrtle Beach, but also convenient to the Southern beaches and attractions. We were there for our son to participate in the Ripken Experience and the ride was less than 20 minutes each time we went to the ball fields. We listened to many other parents complain about their accommodations in buildings closer to Ripken and the action of Myrtle Beach and told everyone of our great experience.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our condo Karin. Everyone loves the huge wrap-around balcony. It is actually 700 square feet and has exits from the living room and two of the three bedrooms. We constantly update our home and one of the most recent updates is the replacement of the wall of windows in the living room area. The new door/windows are tinted and have a high UV protection which keeps out the heat and allows us to keep the drapes open at all times while enjoying the spectacular view of the sea. This year, we also added a second dining table on the balcony and we now have seating for 8 people to enjoy al fresco dining. This has been a favorite of many. My favorite thing to do is to make a cup of coffee just before sunrise and watch the sun rise from the balcony. It is magical. You are right about how close we are to all of the main attractions and great restaurants. Many of our guests take advantage of the free shuttle service that takes them to the local restaurants and shopping areas outside of Kingston Plantation. The shuttle is also available to take guests to the brand new state-of-the-art Spa and Fitness Center within Kingston Plantation that is available for all guests to use for a small fee. We thank you again for staying with us Karin. We welcome you back to stay at our home again if you have plans to visit Myrtle Beach in the future.

Wonderful Week of Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family vacationed for a week at Jim and Diane's condo. We enjoyed everything about our stay - the comfortable beds; soft, plush linens; well-stocked kitchen and ample furniture. The most amazing aspects of this condo are the wraparound balcony and views! We cooked many meals and ate almost all of them on the balcony while enjoying the ocean breeze and view. The pools, both outdoor and indoor, were lots of fun. Both of the managers at the North Hampton Tower were very friendly and helpful. Kingston Plantation is a beautiful community.

We are already planning our next trip back to this place. Jim and Diane are awesome owners - very helpful, informative and pleasant! Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo; we are looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our condo. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you were able to enjoy eating your meals on the balcony. We get so many comments about our balcony that we constantly strive to update it and make it even more comfortable. This year, we added a second table and chairs on the balcony so now 8 people can dine outside if desired. Thank you again for being our guest Penny. We hope to see you again soon.
