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 .

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with family on our last minute get away to Pawley's. I've never been closer to the beach than you are at the Laughin Place. It sits right on the ocean! Each unit has its own private entryway which was really nice. The beds were really comfy and we made wonderful memories with family. Our family saw leatherback turtles in the water, lots of jellyfish and other wildlife. Loved the house and will want to come back! Thank you!

Water EveryWhere

  • 5 of 5

You will feel like you are on a cruise ship!

As the tide rises and goes under the house- you are surely OCEANFRONT!

And the marsh on the other side of the house is awesome for fishing or crabbing.

Can't go wrong with this house- sleeps 20- two separate suites-lots of decks and porches- even two screened in areas. Lots of kitchen stuff too!

Don't think twice. Owners are awesome. Can't go wrong with this rental!

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).
