Peaceful Oceanfront Retreat with Spectacular Views 3 BR 3BA Kingston Plantation

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.

There is a telephone in the condo which can be used to make all local and long distance calls within the US. If you call the concierge at the Hilton, you can make reservations for golf, restaurants or events. You can order any meal for any of the restaurants in Kingston Plantation through room service. The pizza restaurant in Market Place, located at the entrance of Kingston will deliver pizza. There is a shuttle that leaves from the Hilton and Embassy Suites that will take you to area restaurants in Kingston and to a location on Hwy 17 where you can easily walk to the Outlets, restaurants or other events. The shuttle is free. You can even make reservations through the Hilton to be picked up or dropped off at the Airport. There is a fee for this. Call the Hilton for more information.

The beach could not be closer. A small dune is the only thing that separates our condo from the beach.

Kingston Plantation is a planned community which offers a brand new state-of-the-art Spa and Fitness Center with an indoor pool, sauna, showers, 7 tennis courts and the latest in fitness equipment for a small and separate daily fee. Golf, shopping, entertainment venues and numerous restaurants are nearby, including The Marketplace which includes a Starbucks, pizza restaurant, pub, Spa and an ice cream shop.

Our home, in North Hampton, offers FREE Guest parking, 24-hour security, spectacular views, free Wi-Fi, three pools (indoor and outdoor) and a hot tub. The North Hampton Tower is the only building in Kingston Plantation with an indoor pool and hot tub which is for the exclusive use of North Hampton Owners and Guests.

The rental rates and minimum length of stay vary by season.

About Diane and Jim

We purchased this condo in July 2015. We lived in the Northeast and have retired 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 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 736 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

Direct Oceanfront located on the 14th floor. Amazing views. Professionally decorated and recently updated. Rare wrap-around balcony that is furnished with dining tables for al fresco dining and private exit from bedroom #1 and bedroom #2 with seating areas. The sounds of the ocean and wildlife provide a peaceful and relaxing respite. Kingston Plantation is a gated community that has the amenities of a resort. 78 Fitness and Spa, the fabulous new health club has state-of-the-art equipment and Spa Services with Sauna, pool, and more. A daily fee is charged for the fitness center. Walking trails, beautiful wildlife, restaurants and more. Shuttle service to Restaurant Row, WalMart, Tanger Outlets and Krogers as well as to the spa and fitness center within the resort. The Tiki Bar at the Hilton is walking distance. Enjoy a great menu, cocktails on the beach and musical entertainment during the Summer Season. Embassy Suites is walking distance and offers a great buffet breakfast for about $13.00. Barefoot Landing, the Convention Center is about 15 minutes away by car. During the season, you can attend a Pelican's baseball game at night. Total Fun!!!

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!!

Spectacular View!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed the week of 7/28-8/4 and couldn't have asked for nicer accommodations. The condo was clean, comfortable and had plenty of space for 6 people (2 adults and 4 kids). The tasteful beachy decor immediately put us in the vacation mood. The homemade cookies and card left on the counter to greet us were unexpected and appreciated treats! But the biggest asset of this condo is the ocean view. Every room offers unobstructed water views; I could even wash dishes while watching the waves come in! If we return to Myrtle Beach, we'll definitely stay here again.

Amazing view, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here with spectacular views from the wraparound balcony. Quiet in the building. Nice touches by the owner, including a coupon for a great dinner at Ducati's Italian, hand soap, coffee, and other basic supplies already on hand. You won't regret your stay.

Best place we have ever stayed in Myrtle Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up visiting Myrtle Beach every year, and now we still visit with our children and granddaughter. This is the best place we have ever stayed. The decor of this condo is beautiful. The views are amazing! The balcony is the largest I have seen with plenty of comfortable places to sit to enjoy the sunrise, meals with family, or just to relax. The owners are very kind and respond very quickly to answer questions you have about their lovely condo. We hope to return again next year and stay here.

great property with wrap around balcony overlooking ocean

  • 4 of 5

We met the owners when we arrived due to a problem occurring with the maid service. Our room was not ready by 4pm, however the owners were preparing the room themselves and were very apologetic and provided us a couple rounds of drinks at the adjacent Tiki bar while they finished getting the room ready.

It was a great time from start to finish and everything worked and operated very well. We couldn't have been more pleased and only look forward to our next trip down.
