About the Property

House, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 17-20)

The Laughin' Place is our island home on the South Carolina coast at the South End of Pawleys Island. A place where smiles and laughter are served and where the tide washes away all cares. Like Brer Rabbit said 'Everybody's got a laughin' place where they can go ...' and this is ours. We hope you will enjoy it as your 'Laughin' Place', too.

The best of Pawleys, Oceanfront AND Creekside: Two-Story home with one deck and two screened porches. Laughin’ Place features three separate living areas so large groups of people have space for privacy as well. Main floor has living and dining room combination, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, and 2 baths. On same level is a 1 bedroom suite with bath and separate living area. The upstairs apartment has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, and kitchen. There is a crab dock in the creek and a breathe-taking deck on the roof.

The unique layout allows us to offer as much or little of the Laughin Place as you need.

Choose from all 7 bedrooms, the5 bedroom Main Floor (4 bedrooms in the original house and the Creekside suite), the original house (4 bedrooms, 2 baths), the Upstairs apartment (2 bedrooms) or the Upstairs apartment and Creekside suite (3 bedrooms)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: Frank and Raejean Beattie live at Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown, SC. Hopsewee Plantation is the 1st SC National Historic Landmark and their home is open for tours Tuesday - Saturday. A great place to visit while you are at Pawleys Island - come join us for a delightful afternoon tea

Why the Owner Chose Pawleys Island, SC, USA:
Frank grew up coming to Pawleys Island as a child and purchased Laughing Place as a place to pass on the Pawleys memories to his children.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We added our 'owners' apartment in 1999 and the unique layout of the house makes it the perfect place for multi-generational or multifamily gatherings. Three separate living areas make it possible to have some 'private time' during your week as well as together time with everyone. Our new expanded beach side porch has plenty of room for everyone. Underneath the house is a brick patio with a view of the ocean and the creek .
