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.

Year Purchased: 1962
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.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Golden Mile: 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!
The Unique Benefits at this House: 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.
