Overview

About the property

Peaceful and beautiful villa set within a walled garden, minutes to the sea.

Kismet is a luxurious two bedroom villa, a few blocks from the beach and the village. Ideally suited for two couples, there are two separate master bedroom suites, one in the main house and one in the guest house. The main house suite has a bay window with stained glass, queen-sized bed, separate dressing area and a marble-tiled bath with a steam shower. The guest house has high ceilings, a king- sized bed, plantation shutters, sitting area, walk-in closet and marble-tiled bath with a tub. Each bedroom has its own flat screen television. The main house is anchored by a great room with 10 foot ceilings, walls of windows and a tabby fireplace; the great room connects to a cozy sitting room with a marble fireplace and large flat screen tv, opening to the kitchen. A true chef's kitchen, it has top of the line Thermador appliances, a large island seating six, bar sink and breakfast area, and loads of windows. French doors lead out to the deck, al fresco dining area and professionally landscaped garden. The whole property is enclosed and landscaped for seclusion. For those coming back from the beach or who enjoy showering under the sky, the garden area includes an enclosed rainhead shower with hot water.

Inside and out, the house is decorated with a fun mix of contemporary furniture, vintage finds, antiques and mementos from the owners' travels and nautical adventures. There are hardwood floors throughout. A single-sized daybed in the great room provides extra sleeping for the added guest or an afternoon nap. Linens, beach towels, bicycles and beach chairs are included. WIFI, an integrated security system, and irrigation system keep everything running.

Kismet is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood less than a 10 minute walk to Myrtle Beach, a quiet beach popular with locals and accessible at high tide. Two more beaches, each with plenty of parking, are a mile away. The house is located midway between the village and the King and Prince, making the location ideal for walking and biking to all the shops and restaurants without the hassle of traffic and parking.

Kismet is our retreat from the call of our busy lives. We come to relax, to admire the sea, the marshes and the old oak trees. We hope that we can share with you a little bit of our happy wonder at this beautiful place.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out time at Kismet Cottage. It was perfect for 2 couples, offering plenty of both privacy and shared space. Our trip was short but our time at Kismet was quite a treat.

Would definitely consider staying here again if we get back to SSI.

Comfortable Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the house in February. Lovely fit and finish, very clean and well appointed. The separate bedroom, connected by a covered porch, was private yet convenient. Ideal for two couples. The Garden and outside sitting areas were lovely. Does require a short drive (mile or two) to restaurants, but that was no big deal. I didn't see a place in town that looked as nice. Highly recommended.
