Peaceful Oceanfront Retreat with Spectacular Views 3 BR 3BA Kingston Plantation
Our Oceanfront Retreat is a 3 bedroom 3 full bath private home that is located on the 14th floor in the prestigious North Hampton Tower in Kingston Plantation. Situated on the North Corner of the building, this direct oceanfront residence offers a peaceful retreat for those who want to relax and enjoy Myrtle Beach at its finest.
Our condo has a “beachy’ theme and has been professionally decorated and recently updated. All of the carpets were replaced with engineered plank flooring and the “wall of windows" was replaced in the living room and dining area. The new doors make the view from the inside even more spectacular.
The most talked about feature of our condo is the huge 736 square foot wrap-around balcony that has entrances from two of the bedrooms and the living room. This huge outdoor space is fully furnished with two dining areas that seat 8, chaise lounges, chairs and side tables. There are plenty of lanterns with candles for lighting at dusk so that you can linger longer and relax at the end of the day.
At different times of the day, during the year, you can see osprey, porpoises, pelicans and other wildlife from the balcony. The sounds of the surf crashing on the shore, along with the sounds of the ever-present seagulls provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The most amazing part for me is to watch the sunrise. You can always see the sunrise from the balcony, but at most times during the year, you can lie in bed and see the sunrise right before your eyes without even getting out of bed.
The kitchen is fully-equipped and includes quartz countertops, glass backsplash, white cabinetry with brushed stainless handles, stainless steel sink, plenty of storage, tile flooring, white appliances, coffee maker, Keurig, toaster oven, blender, slow cooker, George Foreman grill and more.
The dining area has seating for 6 at the table plus additional seating at breakfast bar. Large glass, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors provide ocean views while dining.
The living room area features a large flat screen TV and DVD player. There are a total of THREE bathrooms and three BEDROOMS which sleep 8 in FOUR beds.
The first Bedroom has a king sized bed with an adjoining bath with combination tub/shower, vanity with double sinks and granite countertop, flat screen TV and DVD player and a walk-in closet. There is a sliding glass door that provides an exit to the balcony and sitting areas.
The second Bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and an attached bath with walk-in shower, vanity with granite counter top, a flat-screen TV and DVD player. There is a sliding glass door that provides an exit to the balcony and sitting areas.
The third bedroom includes two queen sized beds, a flat-screen TV and DVD player. All three bedrooms have a view of the ocean. The third bedroom has a sliding glass door that provides an awesome view but does not exit to the balcony.
The third bathroom is located in the hall and includes a vanity with granite countertop and a combination tub/shower. There is a laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer and a drying rack off of the hallway.
There is a telephone in the condo which can be used to make all local and long distance calls within the US. If you call the concierge at the Hilton, you can make reservations for golf, restaurants or events. You can order any meal for any of the restaurants in Kingston Plantation through room service. The pizza restaurant in Market Place, located at the entrance of Kingston will deliver pizza. There is a shuttle that leaves from the Hilton and Embassy Suites that will take you to area restaurants in Kingston and to a location on Hwy 17 where you can easily walk to the Outlets, restaurants or other events. The shuttle is free. You can even make reservations through the Hilton to be picked up or dropped off at the Airport. There is a fee for this. Call the Hilton for more information.
The beach could not be closer. A small dune is the only thing that separates our condo from the beach.

Why Diane and Jim chose Arcadian Shores
We chose this property because it was direct oceanfront and has walls of windows which allow us to see the ocean from every window.

You are welcomed back anytime and we can’t wait to have you back!
This condo unit was immaculate and tasteful and comfortable. The wrap around patio was furnished very well and the view was beautiful. With all that said, the owners might have been the best part. They were attentive and responsive and very thoughtful. Thank you Jim and Diane for contributing to our special anniversary ! !
Beautifully decorated and awesome ocean view
The condo is beautifully decorated throughout with lots of attention to detail. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The kids loved the indoor pool. Having the beach just a short walk away was great. When we arrived, there were delicious cookies that was a nice welcome to our vacation. There are tons of activities close by which are great for the family. Would definitely recommend!!!! We hope to come back soon.
Perfect setting to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday
We had a wonderful experience at Jim and Diane's condo. It had an amazing view, it was beautifully decorated and was in a great location. The hosts were very supportive and we arrived to a lovely note and cookies. The entire property was beautifully maintained and family-friendly. We went to the spa as part of my daughter's birthday celebration and it was also an amazing experience. I can't say enough positive things about our stay in this condo.
Thank you for your kind words, Angela. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time with your family and that you were able to celebrate your daughter’s milestone birthday at the beach! The amazing Spa and fitness center have been recently built and offer fabulous services and opportunities to work out. I am glad that you spent time in the spa! Thank you again for staying with us. We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful views from every room. Tastefully decorated. Beds extremely comfortable. Owners were great
Loved everything about this place. It was wonderful. Excellent all around from the views to the decor and the most comfortable beds. The owners were so nice! Thanks for the fresh baked cookies. Will stay here again.
Thank you so much for you kind words about our condo, Brenda! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you found our home to be comfortable. We always try to make it extra- special for our guests and love hearing that they enjoyed their stay!
Amazing accommodations with a view
This is definitely a find. We have stayed at other condo's in Kingston Plantation, but this was by far the best. Enough room for the family without tripping over each other and the views from the wrap around balcony are amazing.
Jim and Diane even had cookies waiting for us on arrival. They are the most hospitable hosts we have come across using HomeAway. Thank you both for making us feel at home.
Myrtle Beach has attractions for every age group from theaters to a 200 foot ferris wheel and roller coasters and too many restaurants and golf courses to list.
