About the property

Beach House, Elevator,6 Bedrooms , 6.5 Baths, Hot tub & Pool that can be heated.

Plan a vacation to Pawleys, Hot tub is open year around and the pool can be heated during early and late season if you want it. (from $385 per week during heating season) Enjoy the beach, Swim in our pool, relax in the Hot Tub, do some shelling, visit Brookgreen Gardens, Market Commons, Historic Georgetown or Myrtle Beach. Let's not forget golf (Visit Waccamaw Golf Trail courses on the web) to plan and play a few rounds or make Pawleys your base and do some sightseeing in Historic downtown Georgetown or Charleston, both just short drives away. The weather can always surprise you but Pawleys is graced with a mild climate and nice days most of the year. Spring is always nice and average Sep Oct and Nov highs are 85, 77, and 69 respectively. Just great fall weather, so plan your fall getaway & do something fun!

Our Low Country style home at the beach is fully equipped to be the place for your next family vacations. We are located in North Litchfield Beach in Pawleys Island. After staying here you will know why this is the oldest Seaside Community in the country, simply put it's because the Beach, the community and the ambiance of the area are terrific. You will notice on arrival the professional decorator input from lamps to wall hangings, to furnishings and accessories. You will find the home both comfortable and well cared for. The elevator makes both arrivals and departures much easier. Upon departure you and your family will be looking forward to your next return to Beachy Keen. While the pictures included do not do the entire home justice, they are very representative, so please look them over.

If you want a lot of nightlife or crowds of people, no problem they are just 18 miles away, but if you want peace and quite, a nice family beach, great dining, wonderful golf courses and beautiful gardens, relax you are there. The family beach to walk and play at is just out the front door and to the left. Great dining and golf are located just a short drive away in Pawleys, Murrells Inlet and Georgetown. When you are a little exhausted from our grand and spacious 8 miles of beaches, walk back and enjoy the private pool and hot tub in your yard or just relax in the Pawleys Island hammock in the shade of the palm trees.

New for 2014, great new back splash in kitchen and new 4' bead board wainscoting in hallways and stairwell, as well as some nice new pool furniture.

The pool area is well equipped with both sunning and seating chairs and both the pool and hot tub are ready for you to use.

About Doug Godfrey

Jeanette and I have 3 children and now 5 grandchildren. Jeanette was born in inland South Carolina and I was born in the western part of New York. As you would expect it was her history with Pawleys Island that led us to consider it as a good place for us to build a second home and vacation spot. We both enjoy the beach and love the eight mile stretch of wide beach that Pawleys offers. Now that we are somewhat retired we enjoy having a nice beach house to share with our friends and family

Doug Godfrey purchased this house in 2006

Why Doug Godfrey chose Pawleys Island

We think our home in North Litchfield Beach is perfectly located. It is about 18 miles North to Myrtle Beach and 18 miles South to Georgetown or 55 miles south to Charleston. While it's at the beach, it is not remote as some beach towns seem. Right in and about Pawleys are all kinds of good shopping, golf, fishing and dining. Regardless of the season Pawleys is a good place to be with a lot to do and enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We love to eat at Lee's Inlet Kitchen in Murrells Inlet. We also like Pawleys Island Bakery, the Chive Blossom Restaurant, and the Island Deli all in Pawleys Island proper and less than three miles from the house. We like to visit Brookgreen Gardens and when the grandchildren are here after a lot of swimming and playing at the beach and in the pool we might take them to Myrtle Beach for some of the entertainment or over to Georgetown or Charleston for a little historical sightseeing or ghost tours. All in All never a dull moment in Pawleys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Owners,

It has been 6 years since our last trip to Beachy Keen and some things have changed since we were last here but the weather and family fun was better. Now that our kids are older and more independent they had a great time visiting the beach and using the pool and hot tub. We also liked the BB hoop. We brought a ball and the kids really enjoyed playing. Thanks for opening your home to us.

Great for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a large group. We had 12 adults, and we all prefer our own bathrooms, which this house provides. The bedding was comfortable. The only drawback for our group was the bunk room, as we did not have young ones, but the adults in this room seemed okay with it. Another plus is the ample porch space as well as the two living areas in the home. A place to get away from the crowd. The house is comfortable and has plenty of room.

Perfect for multi-generational groups

  • 4 of 5

The house had two gathering areas for large families with a great hang out area for the kids. Nicely furnished and plenty of seating. The kitchen was well equipped but the dishwasher, washing machine and gas fireplace need a little TLC. The fireplace gave off a gas smell so we did not use it. The owner was very attentive and easy to work with and the management company was responsive to requests. Overall a lovely home and a great experience.

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spacious home, comfortably furnished, elevator is a good amenity, pool was well kept(did have issue of not being heated each day, maintence folks did come and give a temporary "fix" each day), screened porch is a big plus. Other issue was keys were not able to lock the doors each time w/o difficulty.

Overall our family get together was great and having a wonderful home to celebrate in made our time together as a family special.

Owner's Response: Hello Mary, So glad you had a great family get together, also happy that your family enjoyed our home here at the Beach. Very sorry that you had some trouble with the pool heating and the keys. I have talked with both Dunes our property manager and the company we use for pool maintenance about the problems you had while there. The pool has proved difficult as it seems to be performing well now and we can find nothing to fix. We will continue to monitor this and fix it if we can. The keys are a different issue, I picked up all the keys, found the ones that worked well and we threw out all the others that were more difficult. We also changed the method of handing out keys. Instead of providing a key set of two keys one for the house and one for the elevator, from now on we will provide two individual keys, one on a key chain marked house the other on a key chain marked elevator. That way it will be impossible for two house keys or two elevator keys to be found on the same key ring. This should also help eliminate the confusion of the key not working the door it is used on. Hopefully this will help fix the problem you had. Once again Mary, Jeanette and I are glad you had a good re-union at our home and hope you will come back to Beachy Keen again in the future. Regards, Doug and Jeanette
