Towering above other resorts on the Grand Strand, the Four Diamond North Beach Plantation offers guests condos and private cottages with full stainless steel kitchens and as many as five bedrooms — making it ideal for a family vacation. The decor varies from unit to unit, but some feature lipstick-red armchairs, olive-green sofas, beige carpeting and furnished balconies with ocean views. Amenities are scattered throughout the 7.5-acre beachfront complex; they include a 17,000-square-foot spa with Thai herbal massages, and five oceanfront pools featuring cascading infinity edges and trickling waterfalls. Back inside, there’s a lazy river, another pool, a giant chess and checkers board, and shuffleboard. A kids club is included in the rate, offering arts and crafts, water activities and special events. For dining, 21 Main at North Beach is an acclaimed steakhouse and sushi bar (open for dinner only) with entrees such as braised lamb shank and New York strip steak, in addition to fresh seafood and Southern classics.
In the Area
Just across the way is Barefoot Landing, a tourism hub loaded with restaurants and shops. The landing is also home to the House of Blues, one of Myrtle Beach’s premier concert venues, as well as Alligator Adventure, which offers close encounters with giant reptiles and other wildlife. Visitors can also take to the sea with parasailing, jet-skiing, fishing charters, kayaking and sailing, or lounge on the soft sand, which stretches nearly 60 miles. Downtown Myrtle Beach features a signature boardwalk and promenade, Family Kingdom Amusement Park, souvenir shops and plenty of beach bars and nightclubs.
How to Get There
The home we rented was BEAUTIFUL! It was modern, clean, and far more than we expected. We needed maintenance but no one ever showed. Luckily, it wasn't anything urgent. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again soon!
North Beach Plantation provided an excellent stay. The location is perfect as it is across the street from the Alabama Theatre and Barefoot Landing. Also not far from Bass Pro Shops. Lol. Rooms were xtra clean and spacious. Highly recommend.
If you are looking for a penthouse look, look no further! This was a top notch high end 3 BR Condo. Views were amazing from every window. Don’t pass this resort up. Only one thing I’d change, is the entry to the indoor pool from undercover was locked. We actually had to go outside in the rain to enter the indoor pool and hot tub. It was 38 degrees and pouring rain. We asked the lifeguard about having that door unlocked for easier entry and she dated that door was to remain locked.
We always enjoy our stays here and this was no exception. Checkin was easy and quick. The unit could have been cleaner... it was very dusty and there were dirty dishes put away in the cabinets. But overall it was a very nice stay. We would have appreciated more instructions on how to leave on our last day.
We went for a short 3 night stay. The condo was very clean, the staff were super friendly, and the views were phenomenal! The garbage disposal started leaking, but once contacted the front desk sent someone to repair it right away. The only complaint I have, is that breakfast was not available, but this is understandable due to low booking. Maybe there should be a smaller breakfast offered during the off season. Overall we had a great time and I would definitely love to stay again!
