Property description

ALL INCLUSIVE RENTAL: All you need to bring are your clothes and groceries!

Whether you are relaxing on the screened porch, bouncing on the joggling board on the front balcony, kicking back while the children play happily for hours in the play yard; we know that you will have a lot of fun at The Shack and have many happy memories.

The Shack is located one block from the beach on the northern end of North Litchfield. The northern end is the best part of North Litchfield because the beach is never crowded. There are no public parking lots or condos nearby which lends to the lower density. Our beach cottage is near Huntington Beach State Park yet buffered from the people who visit there. A nice beach walk or bike ride there gains you free access inside the conservation park with a fascinating Moorish castle. There's also a graded beach access nearby which allows you to ride a bike, roll our beach cart or pull our kiddie trailer inside (very convenient!). North Litchfield Beach is safe, family-friendly and pet-friendly. Midway Fire & Rescue patrols for safety and very rarely do people get tickets for anything (usually just a warning for no glass on the beach). So stick your toes in the sand, enjoy your drink, and let your kids and dog/s run free. Our fun beautiful beach house and beach is where you want to be!

Configuration of rooms: The upstairs has the screened porch, kitchen and beige colored rooms. The downstairs has the blue rooms. Additional pictures available upon request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My software-selling husband, toddler son, and I escaped Chicago to live in beautiful North Litchfield Beach summer of '06. We traded in our cold-climate city dwelling by the bus line and our noise-reduction machine with surf sounds for a sunny beach house with real sounds and smells of the ocean. Honestly, the beach house and the property we bought didn't look like much at the time (it was a disaster!) but we lovingly fixed it up into a fun-filled, highly-functional family home. We added shabby chic and beachy furnishings to cozy it up. We transformed the once ugly yard into the neighborhood gem and we added another son into the mix to add to the fun. Eventually, my husband and I decided that the Charleston area was a better year-round living place for us and we now we enjoy our former beach home as a vacation place. If you ask our sons though, they would much rather live at The Shack!

Why the Owner Chose North Litchfield Beach:
North Litchfield Beach is an unspoiled, laid-back family-friendly beach community with many nice grocery stores, shops, restaurants, sporting facilities all conveniently located from our property. Unlike Pawleys, North Litchfield is closer to shopping and its beach has no erosion problems or serious undertow issues. The lots are also more spacious. We love NLB and we still believe what the realtor told us, 'North Litchfield Beach is the best kept secret on the East Coast!'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most unique thing about The Shack is our fantastic play yard. Believe it or not, our house was once used as a preschool! The original play yard is decked out with a playhouse, Rainbow playset, tons of sand to play in and more. Parents can unwind on a chair under the big umbrella and listen to music while their children play or they can keep them safely enclosed while they do other things. Kids and parents LOVE our play yard! There are two gates to it, including one near the outdoor dining/patio which is very convenient at dinner time. There's also a very fun Extreme Coaster in the yard. Aside from all fun stuff, you can have peace of mind knowing the home is childproofed if you have young children. Another unique feature of our property is the big beautifully landscaped yard. We have our corner lot professionally maintained, flowers and all, so it always looks stunning. Your children will love running around our oak trees on our lush Zoysia grass and there's plenty of room to play games too. Inside the home, there's a den on the first floor that's perfect for children to play while adults enjoy the upstairs. There are additional play and lounging areas located in and around the property. Look no further, The Shack has everything you need and more! PS. Even if you don't have children you will still find The Shack is a very special place that you will love and want to return to. There is a very happy vibe there that everyone enjoys. I know you will discover what we know... the place is enchanted!
