                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We retired to Pawleys Island after living in Saratoga California for 25 years. The major reasons why we live here are the wonderful warm, safe ocean and beach , the southern ambience, and the availability of so many fine restaurants and fun places to visit. We also like having an easy drive to Charleston and being only 25 minutes away to Myrtle Beach and the MB airport. We very much wanted a community that was friendly , intellectually stimulating, has easy access to cultural events and airports . We like not having the traffic jams we had in California and the greater New York area. We have found our little piece of heaven! We lived most of our adult lives in Northern California. We were born , raised , and educated in New York City. We also lived for seven wonderful years in rural Maryland ,in the 1970s. We love the outdoors , activley use the ocean and inlet for crabbing , fishing , shrimping and fishing and long wonderful walks and bike rides. We travel extensively, and spend a great deal of our time on the west coast where our children and 13 grandchildren reside. We love meeting our guests and assisting them in making their vacation as enjoyable as possible. We were in the technology and legal businesses in our prior lives and still have many friends who come and visit us from California. We have 4 grown children, and 13 grandchildren , who spend a great deal of time with us every summer. We try to meet every guest to find out how we can make your vacation experience the very best. Most of our guests have been renting with us for years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Litchfield Beach:
                  We have owned property in Litchfield by the Sea for over 19 years .When we decided to retire, we researched all of the USA and decided that the Litchfield / Pawleys Island area is where we wanted to be. We wanted to be as close to a warm Beach / Ocean as possible [ Carolina Dreamin'is a 2 1/2 minute walk or about 150 yards away ] have access to our pool [ 30 seconds away ], have access to, and be within walking distance to free lighted tennis courts .We wanted our home to be in a safe, friendly, family envirement . Golf is very important to the people who vacation here. We are within 5 minutes of seven great golf courses which is great for our friends , family and guests.There are over 100 more courses within 30 minutes of our home. Thus we purchased the land, designed a home to accomadate all of our the grandkids [then 4 now 13 ] , choose a quality builder and then added all the amenities that we and our family would like to have. We needed plenty of bedrooms [6 ] and as many full baths as possible [6 ]. We built our beach home 12 years ago and are as proud and happy with it today as we were when we built it. Our home has ' good bones ' and many happy memories. After 18 years we are more ever happy with our decision to live here . We have invited former guests to be co-owners .Now we have two great families that co-own our home with us.They have been co-owners for 10 and 5 years respectively.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home is very tastefully decorated, has all of the things needed to make a vacation hassle free, in a very family oriented community. Though you are close to everything, you never feel crowded. The people who have rented our home in the past we consider to be caring , classy people who have taken care of our home as if it were their own. We have become friends with a number of them. Most of our guests have been coming the same week for a number of years. We have made our home a fractional ownership property. If you stay with us, enjoy your stay and would like to discuss the possibility of becoming an owner, we would welcome it. Most of our guests have rented for multiple years , thus there is a lack of availabilty of prime summer dates. We suggest you book as early as possible to reseve the week you want. The months of September , October and May are delightful here, the beaches are empty, the ocean is warm and the fish are biting. The golf courses are fun and beckoning . The winters are mild and pleasant. This past year has been cold but we had fourteen or more days in the 70's in other years . Riding bikes on the beach , at low tide, is one of the great joys of our strand and we provide the bikes to do just that. Charleston , Brookgreen Gardens , Murrels Inlet , historic Georgetown and of course the Grand Strand are all part of our greater cultural envirement.
