"My husband, 12 yr old son and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo in the Royal Palms (part of Kingston Plantation) at Myrtle Beach. This is a clean and beautiful area close to North Myrtle Beach with many golf resorts, restaurants, shopping and entertainment in the local area including Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing. This particular condo is in a high rise building on the 16th floor with a side balcony view of the ocean. The balcony was very relaxing after a day at the beach and the night time of entertainment in the area. The only con to the 16th floor was the elevator. A convention arrived when we were there and we had to wait in line a few times to get up to the condo-still not bad though.
The building is attached to a very nice Hilton high rise hotel and the private beach access along with the parking garage are part of the Hilton property as well.
The owner was great to deal with and responds quickly (with in a day or less) to your e-mail. She is very accommodating and will answer any questions you may have about the condo, amenities, or the area. We were not able to do the typical Saturday to Saturday stay and she was one of the few that would accommodate us with a Tuesday to Tuesday itinerary.
This was also the first time we rented a condo as opposed to renting a hotel room and were not disappointed. Dealing with HomeAway was easy as well. The condo itself is very clean, quiet and spacious. The bedrooms are separated by the living/dining rooms and kitchen in the middle. There are two full bathrooms as well so it makes getting ready easier. We felt very at home here and were able to unpack and enjoy the space for the week.
We were not worried about beach gear since we would not expect a condo to have that. We brought our own and bought what we didn't have for cheap at the many local beach gear shops in the area. Some things to bring with you would be garbage bags, paper towel, and toilet paper (in case you need extra). There were little sample shampoo and conditioners, body wash and soaps in the large bathrooms. She supplies some bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes, but you need to bring your own beach towels. There is a washer and dryer in the unit-extremely convenient. She also has extra bedding in the bedroom closets. The door to the unit is a little tricky to figure out, and I have to admit that having only one key was a bit inconvenient and made us nervous. We would definitely stay here again!! Thank you!"
