Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

This ocean front beach home is a true classic. The wrap around porch is so inviting that many don't stray far away from it. It has 8 rocking chairs, a Pawley's Island hammock, and a table and chairs that are perfect for a little breakfast or many other uses. The beach is only steps away so that you can walk, play, swim or sun any time of the day.

If you do happen to get a bit sandy, there are two porch showers out back to use before you get into the house, right beside the washer, dryer, and extra refrigerator.

The spacious living area with sofas and large dining table allows plenty of room for watching the big screen TV, playing games or puzzles, just relaxing, or, of course, dining.

The bedrooms are configured as follows:

There is a Master bedroom downstairs with a Queen bed and private bath, and five bedrooms upstairs with another bath. The third bath is in the hallway downstairs.

Upstairs, there are two ocean-front bedrooms. One has a queen size bed in it. The other has a double and a twin.

Next to the queen is an attached room that has two twins.

Next to that is an attached room that has a queen.

Across the hall (next to the double and twin ocean-front, but not attached), is a room that has two doubles in it.

Then behind that room is the bathroom.

As I mentioned earlier, there are two porch showers, and that is also where the washer and dryer and a second refrigerator are.

There are also some beach chairs, etc. out there.

The kitchen is fully equipped from coffee pot to utensils.

We also have a notebook on a shelf near the dining table with different restaurant menus of some of our favorites if you may not feel like cooking:).

Relax with the tranquility of the ocean while you rock on the porch, and watch the sunset turn into a glory of stars or see a beautiful sunrise while in the hammock or a rocking chair. Either way, your troubles will be washed away at our home away from home.

Enjoy!

About The Owner

Hi, my name is Libby, and my sister, Nell, and I own this home which has been in our family since 1962. I have been married since 1980, have two grown children, one granddaughter, and two dogs. I mostly do volunteer work these days... delivering Meals on Wheels, tutoring kids at a community center, and working with senior citizens at the same center. I love my volunteer work - I get so much back in personal rewards than I could possibly give.

The Owner purchased this house in 1962

Why The Owner chose Myrtle Beach

My sister and I grew up going to this wonderful house since we were knee-high. Our grandfather left it to us and we have been taking care of it ever since. It is truly a unique home with a true Southern style and open living area. And, of course, the porch has always been my favorite place to be, as I choose a rocking chair, some cold lemonade, and a good book. Sometimes the book gets ignored because of the beauty of the ocean, the sea gulls, and the possible dolphins!

What makes this house unique

Our home is located in the middle of an area known as "The Golden Mile" which is strictly residential single family homes. Therefore, it tends to be more quiet and less crowded than the condo or hotel areas. Due to respect for our neighbors, we do not allow motorcycles on our property.

I particularly love the porch with the rocking chairs. I take a book and enjoy reading and watching the ocean and the people. It is so peaceful and calming there.

Since we prefer not to cook too much while we are there (although we do have all of the equipment, etc.), we have our favorite restaurants where we like to go. We thought you might like to have some ideas as to where to go, so we put together a book with menus from some of our favorites. This is located on a shelf by the dining table.

Grandmother's 70th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fun in this lovely cottage. The grandparents enjoyed the downstairs bedroom while all the youngins were happy with the huge upstairs! The porch is the best, and there's lots and lots of room for dining and playing games. The new dishwasher made clean-up mighty easy. The Sea Captain's House is right down the road, as is Mr. fish who will pick you up in the Fishmobile! The grandchildren thought that was a scream!

All the beds are so comfortable, and we highly recommend this place and hope to return.

Thank you, Libby, for sharing your beautiful cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you, and yes as I have mentioned many times, the porch is my favorite place to be, and both The Sea Captain's House and Mr. Fish are two of our very favorites. But you must go early or be prepared to have a little bit of a wait at each. Our home is perfect for family get togethers such as yours,with its large living area, dining table, and, of course, wrap around rocker and hammock porch. And only a few steps away from the beach, it's the perfect getaway.

WE LOVE THIS HOUSE!!! Chris

  • 5 of 5

My wife's family, mostly from Connecticut, rented this house about three summers ago, and we loved it so much everyone wanted to return to it this year! It is a charming older beach house with a warm, comfy interior and a wonderful wrap-around porch and a picture-perfect ocean view. there are various nooks here and there if you want to lose yourself for awhile, and the kids had fun just exploring the house. It is ideally located near shopping, and all of the amusements offered in Myrtle Beach. My wife and I spent several hours just walking through the beautiful neighborhoods nearby and admiring the houses and architecture. It is not too far to walk to the strand and arcade area (about 15-20 minutes) for the more adventurous, or just loaf and read on the porch; the ocean waves are mesmerizing.There are outdoor showers located conveniently around the back of the house for washing all the sand off, making multiple trips to the beach easy. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in Myrtle Beach, and my family will probably make plans to return in a year or so.

Old School Charm!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married on the porch in 1981, so this house has a special place in our hearts. We come back every year and it just gets better. Although it has all the modern conveniences (cable, WiFi etc;) it has that feeling that you're stepping back in time just a little bit. Greatest porch ever, you can't get any closer to the ocean! Old school charm all the way, but also just a few minutes away from everything that's happening at the beach. Bring your family and friends, crank up the blender, and enjoy this wonderful old house. You won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Yes, we have many long time friends who come every year especially for the beachfront location and wonderful wrap-around rocking chair and hammock porch. And he is right... If you are looking for an truly southern beach home, then this is the one for you. We have added quite a few improvements over the years, however it still maintains its original character. That is truly its charm!

Family reunion/baby shower

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to host family and friends for special occasions! We were evacuated from our home due to flooding, but had out of town guests coming in for a baby shower. With short notice, we were able to secure this beautiful residence for our event. From the beautiful porch with commanding views of the Atlantic to the comfortable and spacious gathering rooms, our family had an amazing time for the weekend. The r bedrooms were very comfortable and there is everything you need...I would recommend this home to any of my family and friends without hesitation. The owners was extremely flexible and accommodating, but most importantly responsive to our inquiries. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Yes, we were very blessed that our home was not damaged by hurricane Matthew. It does have some wonderful gathering space in the large family room/dining room, and of course, everyone loves the amazing wrap-around front porch over looking the ocean. I can't wait to get back there myself!

Family love

  • 5 of 5

A small group of 15 gathered at the Kuker house for a last minute gathering and had one of the most memorable vacations of our existence together. We weathered the storm of Hermine which was quite beautiful from the beach front porch rocking chairs. The house has great karma that we all felt to our bones as we told tall tales of the 'ol salty sea. It was truly a "Walton's experience as we talked each other to sleep from 1 bedroom to another. The owners could not have been more accomadating as they even were concerned about our well being and comfort during the storm. GOD winked and brought us the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets after Hermine made his merry way up the east coast and we could not have asked for anything different other than the hands of time to slow down. We will be back to visit the great Kuker house year after year! Loved everything about it!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Yes, many very memorable times have been held at the Kuker house. We were all very blessed that Hermine did not cause any serious damage - especially to our guests. Rather they were able to enjoy the show from the wonderful front porch instead. It seems no matter what the circumstances, a good time can be had by all at the Kuker house!

Family bonding time

  • 5 of 5

My family has been to this house for the past two summers and enjoyed it immensely. You can not choose a better location as far as beach privacy and access to all MB and the surrounding area has to offer. The porch is absolutely fantastic and we chose to enjoy as much time as possible out there from morning coffee to evening games. Walking right out onto the beach is wonderful and the lawn also allows for lawn games. Each of our adult children can have their own bedroom and the livingroom with its Smart TV allowed for family time in the evenings as well. Stores are also very convenient and can easily be walked to as well. Overall a fantastic trip- short from having a pool it is an ideal vacation spot- but the ocean is right there. Having the keys mailed ahead of time saves that stop to a broker after a long trip as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Debbie! Our home is the perfect place for a family get together. And with the new Smart TV you are able to sign on to your own Netflix, Amazon, whatever account and use it. The ocean is just outside the back door, and restaurants, putt-putt, shopping, and even golf is just minutes away. But my favorite place of all is still in a rocker on the porch... Or the hammock...
