About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

The 3 BR, 2 bath home on 1/3 acre wooded lot is situated in a quiet, residential area just a short stroll from the beach. It can comfortably sleep 8-10 people and features: 2 BRs that have queen beds and walk-in closets that can accommodate a port-a crib or mini-crib (both available for use); and a 3rd BR with a bunk bed. In addition, there is a Carolina room off the dining area with a full-sized futon, which can be used as a 4th BR, and a queen-sized sofa couch in the living room.

The kitchen is fully stocked with ample cooking utensils and appliances. There is an open floor plan in the dining and living room areas that enhance the relaxed, informal atmosphere of the home.

The patio area and gardens outside the house are home to many bird species and other native wildlife. There is a gas grill available for outdoor cooking and a kennel for dogs (prior agreement required).

This is a residential area so the beach around the corner is not crowded. The location provides a great place to relax and enjoy the beach and other amenities around the area, most of which are a short drive from the house.

About Bobby Kennedy

I come from a large family, have my own large and expanding family. A daughter and her family are located in the area nearby the beach house. I live in NY state with my wife and 2 large dogs, and have been working in the healthcare business for over 30 years. My wife is a nursing educator who has also put in many years in the healthcare business.

We have always enjoyed taking our vacations by the beach, spending quality time relaxing with friends and family. We welcome you to enjoy the same pleasures we treasure when you decide to book your vacation in our beach home.

Relax and enjoy...Bob and Nancy

Bobby Kennedy purchased this house in 2011

Why Bobby Kennedy chose Crescent Beach

My wife and I were vacationing in the area with our family, visiting our daughter and son-in-law, when we came upon this wonderful home and property. We were so lucky to have the opportunity to purchase this home, which is located in such an ideal spot for both family visiting and relaxing at the beach.

What makes this house unique

The area holds so many fun things to do, no matter the time of year or weather- activities of every sort are within easy access from the property.

We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to own such a wonderful home in a beautiful park-like setting near the beach close to family and many dear friends who have contributed to making this home a truly relaxing vacation spot.

The home was built as a full-time residence by the original owners who added many personal touches to both the home and property.

As owners, my wife and I are continuing to add our own personal touches to the home and are working to enhance both the home itself and the surrounding yards, as we seek to further improve this wonderful property for the enjoyment of all who visit here.

The property was everything that was advertised and expected. The house and yard are perfect for hanging out and the location to the beach and other amenities is perfect. We would stay here again.

Loved it! Clean, spacious, and very close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I went to Myrtle Beach for the marathon and the house was perfect. I brought my dog, Max, with me and the house was close to the beach in a nice neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again.

397 Steps To The Beach is accurate LOL

  • 5 of 5

I loved this VRBO. I went solo so I only used the master suite but it had all the comforts you would expect. Totally comfortable bed, clean linens, great pillows, towels provided and super soft toilet paper. It matters OK. Streaming movies from the 5G high speed internet was a breeze. The place itself was clean and well stocked. Lots of shopping nearby and the strip has tons of restaurants. The manager was very responsive so I felt sure if anything did arise it would be handled immediately. Great place and great people. 5 out of 5.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

House was in great shape and clean. Plenty of room inside with good sleeping arrangements. The location couldn't be better. Close to the beach but also close to the main strip.
