Crescent Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms total, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages are one of 4 of our vacation rental properties in North Myrtle Beach! (Cottage A and B) are very close to our beautiful white sandy beach! There is a heated pool that the cottages share! It is very nice and there is plenty of room for everyone! We provide a gas powered golf cart for each cottage as well! The cottages are on a very large lot! Each cottage is separated by a white picket fence so if two separate families rent them they have lots of privacy! We allow dogs at all our properties and the cottages are perfect for dogs. There is lots of space for them to enjoy themselves which makes everyone happy! There is separate parking for each cottage as well as an entrance to the pool with lounge chairs for each cottage. The cottages share a Weber gas grill with a grill gazebo! There is a huge outdoor hot shower! The shower is very private and has a lock on the inside. Often we have 2 separate families in each cottages and they both have dogs but the way they are designed it works great for both families! We provide beach chairs and towels, linens, hs internet, hd cable boxes, baby items (crib, packnplay, stroller, high chair, etc...) The kitchens are fully equipped with ice maker, disposal, dish washer, all small appliances, etc...There are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, etc...The cottages each have 2 bedrooms, a master with a king bed and another bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room. There is a laundry room and a small walk in closet in the master bedroom where the crib fits perfectly! Each cottage has a gas powered golf cart. There is golf cart parking at the beach access. You are allowed to drive golf carts all over this area of North Myrtle Beach. They are lots of fun to have.There are wood laminate floors in both cottages! (NO CARPET) We keep all of our properties very clean and well maintained. We live just a block away so if you need anything we can take care of it right away.

We have retired to the beach and are here most all the time. We keep a home in Greensboro where we worked and raised our family. We have grandchildren there. My husband is a retired dentist and our son took over the practice in Greensboro when he retired. My husband and I own and manage our properties and strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! If the cottages are not large enough we have 3 other properties that are much larger. Please call me anytime for more information. I would love to help you with your vacation plans.

Warmest Regards, Shelley and Jan (husband) Kraska

About Shelley Kraska

This is a photo of me, my husband, and our 8 grandchildren (little elves) Christmas 2014! We are blessed! My husband and I own and manage our 4 properties. We take excellent care of all 4 of them. My husband is a retired Dentist. We lived in Greensboro, NC for 35 years and raised our family there. In 2014 we moved to our home in North Myrtle beach permanently. We love it here! My husband and I

grew up in Ohio and both graduated from Ohio State University in

1974 and then he attended dental school at OSU. (Go Bucks!) We live a block from all 4 of our properties. We really looked up and down the coast before deciding on this area of North Myrtle Beach. One reason we loved this section called Crescent Beach is the beach is very wide and beautiful. It is never crowded and very family and pet friendly. You are allowed to use golf carts in this area to drive all over. You are also allowed to ride bikes on the beach. We are close to everything. Parks, Golf Courses, Fine Restaurants, Fantastic Shopping, Tennis Courts, Amusement Parks, Water Sports, Beach Shops, Shows and Entertainment, Marina's, Inlets to the Ocean, Gambling Boats, Deep Sea Fishing, Riding Sea Dos, etc....It is a great location! We love helping families have a great vacation by making sure that your stay is relaxing and enjoyable as possible!

Shelley Kraska purchased this house in 2006

Why Shelley Kraska chose Crescent Beach

It is perfect for couples, families, pets, toddlers, small groups of any kind but it is very easy to access. There is lots of grassy areas of dogs and kids and people. It is unique with a private heated pool and fenced yard. It makes your vacation easier. No parking decks or elevators, just walk outside and feel and hear the Ocean Breeze!

What makes this house unique

I provide 8-10 beach chairs and 12 beach towels. There are sand toys, boogie boards, etc... in a container. I also provide baby items such as a full size crib, crib sheets, mattress pad, packnplays, a packnplay mattress, high chair, booster seat, infant swing, infant bouncer seat, infant bath tub, exersaucer, stroller, baby gates, bed rails, etc...hs internet service as well as hd cable boxes in each living area. There are of course flat screen tv's and dvd players in each bedroom. I think we strive to make your vacation as relaxing as possible! Please let us know if there is a special request and we will do our best to accommodate you! We do pick up beach wheel chairs for our guests and return them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages

This place was so wonderful. Very clean and everything was there that we needed. We were celebrating my daughter and husband's birthday and wished we would have taken a whole week. We enjoyed the puzzles and games that were provided too. Instruction was on the TV and grills which was a blessing and easy to understand. I planned on renting the cottages again. I am getting ready to check to see what she has available. Would highly recommend for families and good friends! Thanks Shelly for a great get away. We really enjoyed it!

Our third year here - was like coming home when we pulled up!

My husband and I and our four-legged baby stay in the back cottage and my sister stays in the front one - just works perfect.

The pool is wonderful - landscaping is beautiful- clean beachy decor - golf carts - just the best. We will be back again.��

Owner's Response: It is so gratifying when we have our guests return year after year. We try our best to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. The cottages are very popular with all our guests so we do have many that return each year. My husband and I do live here at the beach now so we are close by to take excellent care of all our properties. Sincerely, Shelley and Jan Kraska

Wonderful place to stay for any age

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying OMG, We loved this cottage. It's beautiful and when you see the pictures this is what you get.its the cleanest place I've stayed in in a long time. It has everything you need but you're clothes and food. The fenced in yard was wonderful for a two little dogs Max & Lexie. We loved the golf cart to ride to the beach and ride around the neighbor. Would I recommend this place the answer is yes 100% . We will be back. Thank you Shelley for letting us stay. You have thought about everything a person would need.

Thanks again

Owner's Response: We appreciate it when our guests enjoy their stay at one of our 4 properties! We work very hard to keep them clean and well maintained so when you arrive you can just relax and enjoy your vacation!

Absolutely Wonderful..

  • 5 of 5

Let's put it this way. We plan to hopefully go back to this property year after year. It was perfect for my me, my husband and my 15 month old son. I have read that people think cottage A would be the best but we loved cottage B. As you can see, my 15 mth old had a nice fenced yard to play and right out the back door is a nice pool for relaxation. The homes are right next to each other so I can see if the people who rent the other cottage got roudy at the pool then it could be cumbersome but we were lucky to have a great couple stay in cottage A. You must rent the golf cart. You can go virtually anywhere in it and not step a foot in your vehicle. We went to the grocery store and to the old pavilion for ice cream in the golf cart The property is definitely walking distance to the beach but like I said, golf cart is nice. The property is extremely clean and well maintained. Probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed and we have stayed at a lot of cabins, homes, cottages etc. I can't say anything about activities and attractions because we had every meal at this home and did nothing but pool, beach and golf cart. My son loved it!! What I was most impressed about are the owners. They take pride in their property plus they are super friendly and helpful. I left some clothes in a closet and Shelley even mailed them back to me. I could go on and on. If you are thinking of North Myrtle Beach, then book this property now. It can't be beat! Hope to make this our vacation destination for years to come.

Owner's Response: I am so happy when our guests have a relaxing vacation especially with a toddler. I have 8 small grandchildren of my own so we make sure we provide lots of baby items at the cottages for our guests. I am very careful when renting the cottages separately to rent to guests who are compatible. I have never had any problems! I appreciate all the nice remarks. We do work very hard to keep the properties well maintained and clean for your stay!

Great little house for a family.

  • 5 of 5

The houses are fantastic. They are exactly as shown (they might even line up the pillows up to match the pictures before re-resetting the house for the next guest). The BBQ works well, the pool is heated and almost everything you could need is provided (plates, pots, pans, forks, spoons etc.). I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to a family of up to 5. If you have more than that staying in one cottage it might be a little tight, especially if they are all teenagers/adults. However, if it's warm when you are there, how often will you be staying inside anyway? I would only differ from the owners opinion in one way. I might think about renting Cottage A as opposed to Cottage B if I knew the other cottage was rented and they were going to be out at the pool making a lot of noise. We have a 2 year old and his napping might have been challenging if we stated in Cottage B and the people from Cottage A were at the pool making a lot of noise. I'm not sure if it would be a big problem but it's something to think about.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the wonderful review. I always consider who is staying in each cottage. I have had several couples come at the same week each year because they became friends as did their dogs. They book each year together. It is exciting when this happens because everyone makes new friends as well as their pets. The Kraska's (Shelley and Jan)

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach and we are already planning another! The cottage was amazing! It had all the comforts of home for us and our poodles. It was so relaxing to sit outside and listen to the ocean. The golf cart was a great amenity. It was so convenient to drive to the beach and around the neighborhood. Shelley and Jan are wonderful and have a great cottage! We will definitely rent this cottage again!

wonderful family get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, clean cottage with plenty of space for our family, including our dog! It had all of the amenities of home which made it so comfortable. We enjoyed walking the beach every morning, chilling by the pool and getting some sun in the afternoon, and putt putt golf or playing cards at night. I would definitely come back again to this rental property! Thank you for wonderful memories :)

The Cottages are located off of 17th Ave. South in North Myrtle Beach. There is Molly Darcy's Pub right at 17th Ave. on the Ocean. There is the hot dog, ice cream shop right on 17th Ave. across from the Beach store. Our grandchildren love the big hot dog on the sidewalk in front of the shop. They are within walking distance of the cottages or you can take the golf cart and it is 10 seconds to get there. This area is also called Crescent Beach. We love this area because it is very family friendly and you can ride bikes on the beach anytime of the day. We love that golf carts are allowed to be driven all over our beach area,to the grocery, parks, tennis courts, shops, restaurants, etc...We have 2 golf carts for our guests at the Cottages. The beaches are pet friendly. There are 2 nice parks close to the cottages as well. One is Central Park and the other is McLean park. We are close to the inlets to the ocean which is great because we have a boat. You can rent a boat, go deep sea fishing, go out on a dinner cruise or one of the gambling boats, etc...because we are close to all the marina's and inlets to the ocean. We are very close to the nicest restaurants, shopping areas, golf courses, shows and attractions, parks, and the best and widest beaches in the area. Our beach access is never crowded and very wide with beautiful white sand. You love this area as much as we do! I am sure of it!

Other Activities: We love to go to our favorite pizza place right at the end of 16th ave. across the street. It is Benito's wood fired pizzeria with great Italian food and pizza. During the summer you must go to the main street carnival and ride the ferris wheel overlooking the ocean. Our grandchildren love to go and we have a great time always. For a drink by the sea or a great burger there is Molly Darcy's at the end of 17th Ave. South on the Ocean. There is a deck overlooking the Ocean which is great for a beer or sandwich. Mr. G's ice cream and hot dog shop is also on 17th Ave. South across from the Beach Shop where you can pick up anything you might need. You can drive the golf carts to any of these places. There is a very nice park across 17 directly behind Krispy Cream which is also close to the cottages for hot doughnuts anytime of the day. We are close to all the attractions, shopping, restaurants, golfing, fishing, water sports (also on the beach at 17th Ave. South).

Golf: There are numerous golf courses near the house in North Myrtle Beach. There are 2 right across the street at the end of 16th Ave. South one is Beech Wood and the other is Possum Trot. There are really so many excellent courses in this area! It is a golfers dream come true! I would recommend just do a search for golf courses in the Myrtle Beach Area. We are just a mile from the Myrtle Beach area. North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach are one in the same really. North Myrtle Beach is a very family friendly area with all the beach homes and golf carts etc...

We have been to all the shows. The new pirate show is great but I would make reservations asap. We are very close to Bare Foot Landing which has tons of shops and restaurants. Broadway at the beach was fashioned after Bare Foot Landing. The House of Blues is great for teens and college age children with all the bands etc...We are close to the Tanger Outlets which are awesome. They are very nice and I would recommend them. Main Street is fun to walk around. It is very close and known for the Shag clubs for dancing where you can dance under the stars next to our beautiful beach. It is the Shag Capital of the World. You can buy shag shoes in the shops and take Shag lessons. The ice cream shop the Sugar Shack on Main St. has excellent flavors of ice cream and highly recommended. Have a great time in North Myrtle Beach!
