Mace House is a beautiful family home in a quiet, secluded neighborhood, on the mainland side of the tidal creek at Pawley's, where moss hangs from live oaks and deer stroll in the evening. Located on the mainland across the marsh from the south end of the island, this house has a private dock on the frontage along the marsh and is still owned by the family that built it in 1972.
A large screened porch with hammock, swing, and rocking chairs overlooks the tidal marsh where the private dock gives access for crabbing, fishing, kayaking, and watching birds - egrets, herons, and osprey in the marsh and painted buntings and whippoorwills in the woods. Glass doors across the main room let you enjoy the glorious views in the comfort of AC or heat, or you can open them and bring the sea breezes into the house.
Under the house, sinks and showers let you clean up before bringing the catch into the roomy kitchen, and a big fireplace makes the great room cozy for cooler times. A short drive or boat ride, depending on the tide, takes you to the historic Pawley's beach for swimming, surfing, and walking. (Kayaks are available to rent for $75 per week for one, $100 per week for two, and $150 per week for three.)
This is a perfect place for a family to get away from the world and spend time together with our little collection of books and games, or with those you bring yourself. The house is large enough to offer privacy as well.
Nearby are world-class golfing, shopping, historic homes and churches, and restaurants galore. The beautiful sculptures and gardens at Brookgreen are only a few miles north. Fifteen minutes takes you to Georgetown, half an hour to Myrtle Beach, and an hour to Charleston.
We rent by the week only--no short-term rentals. For more details and many more pictures, please see our main website (linked below).
