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 washer, dryer, and unlimited hot bath water in the condo 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 some other units, including granite kitchen countertops, board games, books, 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 Myrtle Beach

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 River City Grill for burgers. 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 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!

Nice place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The penthouse is very clean and there are many utensils in the kitchen to use. The rooms are very spacious and our family of 5 never felt crowded. Kelley sent us information on different attractions in the area which was very helpful! The Beach and outdoor pool area were very nice. The only reason why I rated this a 4 instead of a 5 was due to the plastic on the beds. I understand why they are on but it was hard to sleep on them. Also the indoor hot tubs were very dirty. Other than that this place was great!

Excellent location--right in the middle of every place you want to go. Comfortable, roomy, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen has all the essentials. We had a great time and would definitely stay again!

Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved everything about this property ! We took a huge family vacation to myrtle beach with 11 people total and this penthouse was perfect for us ! Having us all be together in one penthouse for a great price was amazing ! This was the best deal by far ! Not to mention we felt at home with everything we needed for a great vacation. They provided beach chairs& sand buckets , all kitchen supplies, a washer and dryer , literally anything you could think of ! This place had an AMAZING view of the ocean and the breeze flew right towards us! The only slightest flaw I could point out is that the beds aren't so comfortable, but they are suitable.Kelley and Hoyt were great at keeping in contact to make sure our vacation was going smoothly and gave us the best suggestions of places to go ! Love this place , definetly recommend!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you found the place well equipped for your big family gathering! Your mattress comment made me chuckle. Everyone's comfort is a little different. I will get back pain if I sleep on a mattress that's too hard or too soft (I guess that makes me Goldilocks). This Spring, I was trying to convince my husband to bring the PH1 king mattress to our home in NC because it's one of the most comfortable mattresses I've slept on. But then another guest earlier this season wrote "The condo was very spacious and much better than a hotel. The beds were very comfortable... ". And after that comment, now my husband won't let me bring that mattress home because he wants our guests to continue to enjoy it. LOL! ...Kelley

Party of 7

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo because of the price and the convenience. All I can say is WOW!!! The condo is so well kept and clean. There were no issues to speak of. If I had to list a flaw it would be that the spatula we found was not big enough for our oversized pancakes. The place is quiet and the pools are great. Plus a 3 minute walk from the condo to the beach was a breeze especially having a 5 month old. In a great location it's very easy to find and is close to everything you would want to do in a Myrtle Beach vacation. I couldn't be happier that we chose this place. Also have to throw in a big kudos to the owners. Communicating with us from the time we booked all the way up through a nice thoughtful note the week before with a wish of a happy vacation and pertinent information. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property to anyone who is looking to stay in Myrtle Beach.
