About the property

19th floor 3 BR/2 BA penthouse upgraded condo 4-minute walk to beach (sleeps 10)

Welcome to our condo for a private and luxurious escape in the heart of Myrtle Beach fun! When you arrive, unpack your bags for a relaxing stay at your 1300-square-foot home-away-from-home. Start by preparing appetizers and drinks in your fully equipped kitchen to enjoy on your private, 130-square-foot balcony while you watch and listen to the ocean. From this 19th-floor, non-smoking end-unit, you have panoramic views in three directions. Later, you can watch a DVD movie on the 42' flat screen TV in the family room. Or you can watch a 32' TV or movie in the master suite with the king bed or in the other two bedrooms with two queen beds in one and a queen bed and an XL double bed in the other. In case you're not quite ready to get away from it all, you can check your email over the wireless internet (wifi). If your traveling companions are too young to comprehend a relaxing vacation, your spouse can take them to enjoy the beach and other local amenities (you even have a new-in-2014 washer and dryer in your unit with unlimited hot water so those amenities can be enjoyed with reckless abandon).

Our extended family offers 3 condos in the same building to make your family vacation even more fun for bigger groups (see the link for All My Rental Listings below).

The outside of Sand Dunes resort offers pools, a lazy river, covered parking, and the wide, white 'Golden Mile' beach with lifeguards, chairs, and umbrellas. Walk to River City Cafe for burgers, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Bonefish Grill, NY Deli, Sam's Corner, and many other nearby restaurants. You can have the vacation of your dreams without driving anywhere!

But Myrtle Beach's best attractions are only moments away:

9 minutes to Broadway at the Beach

9 minutes to Barefoot Landing

7 minutes to Tanger Outlet shopping

10 minutes to live entertainment, including Medieval Times, Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and the SkyWheel

100+ award-winning golf courses, including privileges to The Dunes Golf and Beach Club

Putt-putt courses, dance clubs, and hundreds of restaurants

We have made our penthouse more comfortable with amenities you won't find in other units, including granite kitchen countertops, board games, books, luxury linens, DVDs, a high-chair, a stroller, and other extras. We hope you enjoy these personal touches to make our second home your second home.

About Kelley

Our family of six has been vacationing in Myrtle Beach for many years. We enjoy traveling, watching (a LOT of) kids' soccer, and playing games together. The craziness of a house full of sons prompted us to find an escape that offers something for everyone in our family. We love the quiet privacy and spaciousness of our penthouse so close to the beach, putt-putt, shows, and many other activities. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! ...Kelley and Hoyt

Kelley purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kelley chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

With children in college, high school, and elementary school, we wanted to buy a home that the entire family can enjoy year-round. Our condo is located halfway between Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing, which gives us many shopping, golf, putt-putt, and entertainment options. We can walk to the Starbucks or our favorite pancake house, Akels. Yet it's not in the middle of a bunch of high-rise buildings that might obstruct our 19th-floor view or crowd the beaches.

At Sand Dunes, we like the variety of amenities, including covered parking, the onsite convenience store, and the arcade for our sons. We also really appreciate the convenience of lifeguards and rentable cabanas and lounge chairs on the beautiful beaches.

What makes this condo unique

With an end-unit penthouse, we like the privacy of having the fewest neighbors. The extra windows in the end unit let in lots of sunshine, while the light-blocking drapes throughout enable a midday nap. We put in big, comfortable beds and luxury linens for restorative sleep. Our family loves listening to the ocean while we eat dinner together on the balcony. The open living room has enough seating for everyone to watch TV or play a game. This condo offers the best combination of comfort, luxury, convenience, and affordability we found on the Grand Strand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I spent Jan, Feb, & March 2011 with my nieces at your beautiful, spotless, & well-maintained penthouse condo. We loved the location, hot tub, pool, and the views from the penthouse floor! Thank you, Hoyt & Kelley, for being terrific and responsive owners. And we can't wait to stay with you again for winter 2012. See you soon!

Super Nice Condo!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this place for a golfing trip with my two boys. Great location, clean, well decorated and steps from the beach. What more could you ask for? We would definitely stay there again...

Sand Dunes Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay while you're visiting Myrtle Beach, SC. Kelley was super helpful and organized from the minute we booked until we were home. Everything you could need is there and then some. The only suggestion I would make is if you are traveling with young ones make sure you have a wagon of some kind to cart all of your beach stuff because it is a little bit of a walk. Would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat!

Joyce and the Bancroft/Good family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation staying at the Sand Dunes Penthouse 1. There was plenty of room for our entire family (Daughter with family, Son with family and extended family members) and each of the bedrooms were very roomy and comfortable. The condo has a great view of the beach, ocean and everything else north of the building. It's so nice to see trees and not just hotels. The condo is equipped with everything we needed including an umbrella stoller and high chair for the 13 month old. The children all enjoyed the indoor pool as well as the beach and the ocean. We stayed there last year and will hopefully be able to stay again. Kelly and Hoyt were so helpful and extremely accessible. I loved working with them on planning our vacation and they were there right away when we needed a little help. The condo is located close to many attractions as well as stores and restaurants. Having the River City Cafe right there on the property was also a very big plus for us. We also enjoyed the Starbucks located at the Long Bay Resort just next door. Great condo at a great location with plenty of parking!

Review of Sand Dunes Penthouse 1

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sand Dunes Penthouse 1 during week of 6/25. Our stay was great. The condo was very nice and provided more than enough room for 6 adults and 2 small children. We had a nice view of the ocean from our balcony. The condo is decorated very nicely and has TV in every room which was great. We ate in for lunch everyday and the kitchen was very nicely equipped.

The access to both the pools and the ocean as the Sand Dunes was great. The grand-kids switched many times from ocean to pool and it was easy to transition. The pool offered several shops right next to it which provided access to beverages and things like pizza and sandwiches. There is a general store right on the premises which has just about everything you would need to purchase quickly, including bread and milk.

Lastly, Hoyt and Kelly were very easy to work with and did everything in a professional manner and the instructions were very clear.

One other minor item that we found very nice. The door to condo is equipped with a code entry and not a swipe key. This does not sound like very much but when you have 8 people running around at different places keeping track of swipe keys can be become difficult. The code entry was very nice.

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the one week we spent in this condo. While not being oceanfront, it is high enough to provide a fabulous view of the beach and ocean and is relatively quiet. It is well appointed with all necessities and was immaculately clean and tidy. We found Hoyt and Kelly to be very accessible and they kept in close contact with us to ensure everything was as it should be. The location is great for shopping, restayrants and, of course, the beach never disappoints for those who enjoy long walks and swimming. While we did not need all the room, we had stayed with friends in another unit owned by this family and we were keen to use them again. We would certainly consider returning again and invite friends and family along! All in all, a memorable stay and we would not hesitate to recommend this condo to others.
