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.

About the Owner
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.

Old School Charm!!
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.
Family reunion/baby shower
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!
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!
Family bonding time
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.
Love this place.
We have been going to this house for 22 years. Wonderful location. New great mattresses. Slept so good. We just wish there was another bathroom upstairs but we have learned to manage. The owners are very nice people too. Love this place !!!
Wonderful option for a girls' weekend!
We had a group of 13 girlfriends get together for a fun weekend at the beach -- this house exceeded our expectations! It is perfect for a large group as the common areas are very open and able to accommodate everyone. We loved that the upstairs bedrooms were all connected and had so many bed options! The porch was the best part, and you can't beat the fact that the house is beachfront. Although it is adjacent to a public beach access, it felt very private.
The only downside is that you need to plan to bring essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, etc. etc...not a big deal just something to plan for.
