Recent Pawleys Island reviews

  • Wonderful place - exactly as advertised!

    "Eight golfers stayed here for 5 nights & loved everything about the place -- super comfortable. The owner was very accommodating -- we asked for a DVR so we could watch The Masters, and she made it happen. Highly recommend this rental!"

  • Perfect Beach House

    "Stayed here with some other couples and friends for a long wedding weekend. The house was absolutely perfect. The large, updated kitchen was perfect for hanging out and the bedrooms were numerous and spacious. The house is right on the beach and has great porches and decks on both sides of the house. The recommended linen service was very reasonable and worked out well. I would highly recommend this house for families or friends visiting Pawleys Island."

  • Great stay on Pawley's Island

    "First, let me just start off my saying that the pictures do this condo NO JUSTICE AT ALL. When we checked in the owner met us there and was super friendly! The condo was VERY clean and I have no complaints at all. We brought 2 other couples with us and we all enjoyed the pool very much. Why waste tons of money by staying in Myrtle Beach when you can stay in this great condo just a short drive away from all of the main attractions! We will certainly return!"

  • Looking forward to 2015

    "This was our 3rd year returning to Anchor In and we are already planning our return in 2015! The best spot on the island, in our opinion. The beach access is right across the street, the dock just behind the house and we are close to one of our favorite spots - the north tip of the island. The best place to fish, look for shells and just have some peaceful time to yourself. We still haven't used the canoe but plan to on our next trip and do a little creek crawling, too! Who knows, we may even do a long weekend trip during the off season. That's how much we enjoy it - waiting another year for the next family week of vacation is way too long! The owners are wonderful, gracious and kind, too."

Pawleys Island Travel Tips

Pawleys Island Vacation Homes Make up the Oldest East Coast Resort Area

Within South Carolina’s Grand Strand is Pawleys Island, which proudly describes itself as “arrogantly shabby.” Pawleys Island vacation homes have been the most popular of Myrtle Beach resorts over the years. The beaches on which Pawleys Island rentals are located are mostly private and perfectly pristine. Surrounded by oodles to do, including golf, tennis, fishing, family entertainment, and tons of restaurants, it is no surprise that Pawleys Island has only grown in popularity.

Pawleys Island Rentals Are Centrally Located

Just 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach and 70 miles north of Charleston, Pawleys Island vacation homes are centrally located to two of South Carolina’s most popular destinations. In fact, many Myrtle Beach resorts extend to this area as it is known as the oldest summer resort area on the East Coast. It was in the early 1700s that rice planters settled the region by the rivers; each May they would relocate to what is now Pawleys Island. Based on this history, the charm of Pawleys Island rentals has only remained strong.

Do Not Miss the Ghostly Fun at Myrtle Beach Resorts

Perhaps because the area is so old, there are so many stories of ghosts along the shore near Pawleys Island vacation homes. One of the most famous local legends is that of the Gray Man. The Gray Man is a friendly ghost who is seen mostly when hurricanes are near and thought to warn the town of the danger. It is said that he walks the shores of Pawleys Island and the surrounding area when hurricanes are nearing. So, if you are into ghost hunts, keep your eyes open for the Gray Man.

You Will Never Be Bored at Pawleys Island Vacation Homes

Obviously, the beaches are a major draw of Myrtle Beach house rentals. However, there is so much more to enjoy when staying in Pawleys Island rentals. If you are into the nightlife, do not miss Broadway at the Beach, which consists of a huge cluster of bars, restaurants, shops, and theaters. If you are interested in aquatic life, check out Ripley’s Aquarium on Celebrity Circle; the whole family will love it. If miniature golf is your thing, you will not want to miss Mount Atlanticus.
