  • Quiet place to ring in the New Year!

    "Great house for a quiet winter week; which was exactly what we were looking for. Enjoyed an afternoon kayak trip on the creek. Felt like we were home the minute we walked in the door. Owners were great to work with, we will be back. Wish they rented for a month at a time."

  • Family Vacation

    "As soon as we walked was better than the pictures and the pictures were spot on!! The house was decorated beautifully and well appointed with what we needed & beyond. The owners have done a wonderful job of keeping the home current while maintaining a comfort you crave while on vacation. We have already booked our return for next year and several family members that just came for a night now want to return for the full week as well. Enough room that we all were able to have our own personal space and enjoy the creek or ocean views. Wish I could keep this place a secret as anyone booking will be sure to enjoy as much as we did!!"

  • Great place

    "Well appointed town home right on the Fairway with lots of space for everyone. We stayed and played some golf at Pawleys and this location works great. The owners do a great job keeping it up and making sure all arrangements are complete for your arrival. Highly recommended if you need a spot on Pawleys and don't need to be right on the water."

  • Just Perfect!

    "If you long for the way Southern islands used to feel, this is the place for you. Pawley's has many historic cottages that would be torn down in most other places. And Haps Up is a slice of Americana. Coming from Wrightsville Beach, NC, with loads of fast boats and giant homes with three feet between them, Haps Up will remind you of a more gracious lifestyle. On a beautiful treed lot (fortunately common on Pawley's), it is a generous home with high ceilings and cypress paneling throughout. The roar of the ocean is only a few feet from the front dock and the porch is marvelous. From soft linens to well equipped kitchen, the owners have thought of everything a traveler would need. We had a meaningful visit to an incredible place. I would recommend this to anyone I thought worthy of the experience!"

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.
