Laughin Place - Front Beach and Creek Dock-the Best of Pawleys

The best of my wedding weekend, was spent here

  • 5 of 5

We picked this house out because of the name "Laugin Place". Then we saw the rooftop deck, and considered it a bonus. We had family and friends from as far north as Conn and south Florida. We were not disappointed. The memories that were made in this beautiful, family friendly home stood true to the name. The house was clean, comfy and spacious. The separate suites gave us the privacy we needed. The views were spectacular. Clean linens and spacious family areas were another bonus. Now we are planning a week next year, to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, with the same family and friends joining us. Thank you

Ray Jean for the use of our beautiful home.

At high tide, it's like being on a cruise ship

  • 5 of 5

We've visited Laughin' Place many times and it's a great place for a Pawleys family vacation. There's plenty of room, but the two separate apartments give some privacy for those times when the kids get too noisy. Unlike Pawleys homes in the middle and north of the island, which are often well back from the beach, Laughin' place is right on the water. At high tide, you can look directly down from the deck into the ocean, which makes it as if you're on a cruise ship. Highly recommended!

Our family and my brother's just spent our beach week for the second year at Laughin Place and recommend it very highly. The Owners are responsive, professional and friendly. The location, beachfront and creekfront, is superb, and the home is spacious, well furnished and perfect for a large family gathering. A top choice!!

Great week at the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time being close to the ocean. Even a couple of days of cool raining weather brought us the excitement of surf at high tide. We brought Kayaks to explore the creek and fished from the dock. Walking on the beached at low tide was a favorite especially at the south end of the island. The roof deck is a great place to watch sun rise or sunset especially on the evening of a full moon. On arrival, we found the house to be clean, all beds prepared as advertised. The kitchen was modest but very well equipped. Although we had no issues, it was re-assuring than the owner had given us several phone numbers of service folks who could help us if needed. Our family of 10-13 depending on day had no problem adapting to the bedroom lay out. Larger families may find the limited bath rooms(4) to be a challenge. Having vacationed in the Garden City area for over 35 years, we found Laughin Place to be very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and other services. If you are looking for a place for your family to enjoy the beach and the natural beauty of Coastal South Carolina, this is the place.

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 Pawleys Island

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 .
