About the property

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

Have you ever walked on the beach looking at resorts and say, 'I wonder what it would be like to stay in that unit? Their view is the best in the building.' This is that unit! As a penthouse end unit on the 19th floor, this 3 bedroom/3 bath condo offers a luxurious escape to the beach. The oversized, covered, wrap-around balcony offers 234 square-feet to enjoy the awesome view for miles up and down the beach.

Inside, 3 sliding glass doors give you balcony access from the master suite, the family room, and the dining room. You can enjoy a view of the ocean while sitting on the new sofa while watching a ballgame on the 42' flat screen TV in the family room. Or you can retire to the master bedroom to nap on the king bed or to enjoy a book in the cozy sitting area. Dine in style inside or outside with a fully equipped kitchen, including Lenox everyday china, glasses, utensils, cookware, and appliances.

The other two bedrooms each have a bathroom with unlimited hot water, two extra-long double-beds, a 32' flat-screen Vizio TV, a DVD player, and a great view. Striking granite countertops will round out your image that this 1377-square-foot penthouse is one of the best on the Golden Mile.

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 Sand Dunes resort itself 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, Cheeseburger in Paradise, 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 hope you enjoy this luxurious condo and the extra touches we added to make our second home your second home.

About Kelley

We are retired in North Carolina, spending as much time with our kids and grandkids as we can.

Kelley purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kelley chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

We have lived in Brazil, Argentina, Michigan, Missouri, Florida, and North Carolina, yet we always dreamed of owning a beach condo. The first time we saw this condo, we knew: 'It doesn't get any better than this!'

What makes this condo unique

All generations have things to enjoy at the Sand Dunes. It's relaxing for people our age who just want to enjoy some quiet time with family. Our kids like the restaurants and conveniences within walking distance. Our grandkids love the pool, arcade, wifi, and beach. And there's plenty of room so we don't feel crowded when we vacation together.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the penthouse is amazing! The giant windows and sliding glass doors let in lots of light and the wrap around balcony could fit 20 people if needed! Each of the beds, bedrooms, and bathrooms were large and very modern. The kitchen had everything we needed and we especially enjoyed all the "special little things " around the house like the games and books. There was an abundance of bath towels which is wonderful, especially for large groups like we had. The house was decorated beautifully and we loved all the personal touches! Being so close to the beach was wonderful and the outdoor lazy river and pool were enjoyed by our kids. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out but plenty of space to hang out together also. The view is amazing and the balcony was one of our favorite spots. Getting to the beach is really easy. Everything was as advertised in the photos. Reservations, check in and out were all seamless. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 7 people in this condo. We LOVED everything about it. There was plenty of space to spread out. The view was absolutely amazing and it was super easy to get to the beach. The condo had everything we needed for the week and we felt like we were at home. I would definitely recommend to anyone that was asking. Check in and check out was easy, contacting Kelley was easy...the entire process of rental was stress free.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay in Penthouse 10! The six of us know we will find a home as welcoming, well-cared for and accommodating as our own. Our compliments on the updates - the new window treatments, sofa, etc. made your already wonderful condo even better. Thanks for sharing again with us and for another memorable vacation. Your annual NJ Visitors

Wonderful condo but resort/amenities are lacking

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this lovely condo the week of July 4th - obviously a very busy week. To be clear, the condo and the owners are absolutely great! Kelley was so responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We had more than enough room and the condo is well-stocked with anything you might need. We cooked dinner multiple nights and always had everything we needed. Our only issue was that the sliding glass doors to the balcony (3 total) did not have any child safety measures. Our kids were great about following our rule of "no kids on balcony w/out an adult" but I would have slept better if there was a lock they couldn't reach at the top of the doors.

We think it's important to make a few comments about the resort. We understand that many of these things are not necessarily under the control of the owners but they affected our overall satisfaction so I know I would want to know. Overall we weren't very impressed. It's getting run down and could use some upgrades. We were not given access to the front pool and lazy river which was really disappointing. I can't even count how many times we had to explain that we weren't "allowed in that area." The fitness center was offered at an additional fee, I don't understand why the front pool area couldn't be as well?

We did have access to back 3 pools - the general pool, the (very small) lazy river, and a toddler pool. Unfortunately something was wrong with the toddler pool and it was closed off the entire week. How a resort cannot arrange to fix the toddler pool during the week of JULY 4TH is beyond me. In general the pools were very chaotic and not regulated in anyway. They had signs that the floats were only for the lazy river and no coolers or glass were allowed in the pool area. However the reality is that the floats were carried over to the general pool (at least the ones that were inflated) and people did whatever they wanted. I understand that there weren't lifeguards, but was very frustrated by the lack of regulation of general rules. I literally watched an employee play on his phone for 30 minutes while teenagers took over the pool with floats to the point that any parent with young children was forced to leave the pool because of concern for safety. I also can't even get into how horrible the elevators were - very slow and HOT - 1 of 3 seemed to always be broken.

Summary: great condo but wish it was located in a different resort.

Owner's Response: Hi, Kristen. Thank you for your review and comments about the resort. We are happy that you found the condo lovely, roomy, and well-appointed to cook and enjoy family time together. The resort is under new management as of about a year ago, and we continue to see significant improvements. The indoor pool area was completely remodeled. The Mango's restaurant has been redesigned into a more affordable Southern BBQ restaurant. Landscaping was upgraded throughout. It's headed in the right direction, for sure. July 4 is a busy week. I'm not sure why resort staff did not take action at the pool in the situation you described, but we have asked resort management to be sure their employees are trained on how to handle pool safety in the future. Elevator improvements were scheduled for May, but unfortunately they were delayed. By our visit on July 30, all the elevator cabs had been refurbished with new walls, floors, and ceilings. And all elevators were operating normally. We regret that the work wasn't completed ontime to improve your vacation experience. It was a pleasure hosting your family, and we hope to have the opportunity again. ...Kelley
