About Raejean Beattie

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

Raejean Beattie purchased this house in 1976

Why Raejean Beattie chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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 .

Laughin Place was perfect for our multi-generational family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Laughin Place. It had ample room for our family and we could gather together in the main living area with comfort and ease. If grandmom wanted to retire for the evening, she had her own suite to go to. The kids had everything they could have asked for too. The house is located so close to the beach, there is no need for a bag drag to set up the umbrellas; in fact, underneath the deck provided ample shade right next to the beach for us so that we never used our umbrellas. We crabbed, fished, kayaked, rode bikes, and relaxed. Loved the Kuerig coffee makers in both the main area as well as the upstairs apartment.

Outstanding facility that meets our needs

  • 5 of 5

Laughin' Place perfectly accommodates our extended family - Grandparent couple, 3 married children with spouse, one single adult child & 7 grandchildren (ages 6-15). The layout allows some family privacy and some of the grandchildren can "bunk" together. The crabbing pier provides many hours of fun for all. (While we still sometimes use the string & net system, we have discovered that the collapsible traps work better.)

Beach location is superb (not crowded), convenient to grocery & other stores. We especially like The Rustic Table and The Fish House when we go out.

Property description is accurate, the place is clean & well-maintained, and the owners are courteous/pleasant & responsive. We highly recommend it (unless you try to get our week).

Beach Outing

  • 4 of 5

This was our third annual outing at the beach for our group and our first time at Laughin Place. We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect for our gathering. We hope that this will be our place for many years to come. Our main purpose was to enjoy friendships and the beach without having to leave the property. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Beach House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This Pawley's Island home was a gem. Mrs. Raejean and the Beattie family were wonderful to work with readily available for questions if needed. We had over 15+ golfers and the house accommodated everyone! After our rounds, we would fish the surf right off the back porch, or check out the views from the crow's nest atop the house. A 10 min drive into town and only 20 mins away from Murrell's Inlet if your looking for a place to eat and walk the boardwalk.

It was a perfect weekend for our party. Highly recommend this rental!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! We hope you will return many times. You say from the review checklist that we are pet friendly, but we cannot allow pets as we have a family member who is pet dander allergic.

Beautiful home right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The home was great! We had a group of 8 golfers and the house was plenty large for us. The best part of the trip was sitting out on the deck every night rehashing our day on the links. It was just perfect situation the ocean washing underneath us to the cool breeze and the abundant laughs.

Wonderful place - exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

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!
