About Bill and Barb Currens

We live near Charlotte, NC are both retired, and enjoy relaxing at Litchfield-by-the-Sea as often as is possible.

Bill and Barb Currens purchased this condo in 2005

Why Bill and Barb Currens chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We have been vacationing at Litchfield by the Sea for many years, the whole family enjoyed the setting, security, and lovely resort community, so the decision was easy when choosing to purchase a rental condo at our favorite place to relax. We have made our condo unique by decorating and furnishing it as a cozy second home, not a typical rental condo. We are continually updating the electronics and the furnishings, to provide a comfortable setting that reminds you of home. Barb, as a retired caterer, has equipped the kitchen with everything that you might need to create your own gourmet meals, even including a stand mixer and a low country boil steam pot!

What makes this condo unique

Over half of our guests have stayed with us previously, and have shared their great experiences in our reviews. Quiet, peaceful, family oriented, secure setting, while offering access to both the excitement of Myrtle Beach and the historical culture of low country South Carolina as epitomized by nearby Pawleys Island and Georgetown. The Litchfield by the Sea resort has been renovated in 2011, with updated landscaping, new walkways, and a totally new beach house, with a completely modern clubhouse, spacious decks and access walkways to the pristine 8-mile beach. Marsh Hawk is a small, private regime in Litchfield by the Sea resort, offering a quiet setting backing on a scenic wetlands creek/marsh with the beach just minutes away. With Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park just to the north, Hobcaw Barony, historic Pawleys Island and Georgetown just to the south, recreation and cultural opportunities abound. Most of our repeat guests work directly with us to save the VRBO service charge on future vacations.

Beautifully appointed and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to find this beautiful property when we needed overflow space for a family vacation. The marsh view is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning listening to the sounds of the ecosystem!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments, Sharon. The back porch, with its great view of the salt water marsh, is one of our favorite places to relax, whether greeting the sun in the morning, or watching it go down in the evening. Please come back when you need extra space! Bill and Barb Currens

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Marsh Hawk. The Condo was very clean and well appointed! The owners were very easy to work with! Loved the easy beach access and Litchfield is a very nice area! The beaches in this area are a lot cleaner than the Myrtle Beach area! Thank you for letting us use your condo! We hope to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Kay, we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed our condo and the resort. You are right, our 8-mile beach is one of the whitest and cleanest we have seen in the world! We pride ourselves on keeping our condo very clean and well appointed, so are glad you appreciated our efforts as well. Thank you for staying in our condo, and please come back very often and very soon. Most of our guests are repeat guests, and we would be honored to have you all in that group! Bill and Barb Currens

Nice Property, Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a week in this nice condo that was spacious and tastefully decorated and contained everything you need to feel as though you haven't left home. The beach was an easy walk along a path that took you by the crabbing dock. My boys wished the dock was bigger, but still had a blast using their casting net every day. The only drawbacks for us were having to lock our bikes down by the pool (not far, just inconvenient), lack of any real easy place to grill (you have to use portable/disposable grills on the sidewalk), and no real designated space to leave beach chairs/buggies outside. None of these drawbacks are the owners fault, just obersvations about the community. We had a great time and would definitely visit again. Thanks for letting us use your home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and constructive comments. We are delighted that you had a wonderful week, and hope that you can come back very soon. We spend a lot of effort in making our condo truly a home away from home, and are delighted that you felt the same way. Your comments about the community will be passed along to the HOA. Thanks again for the opportunity to work with you in developing a good vacation week. Bill and Barb Currens

An Excellent Domicile and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks much to Barb and Bill for allowing us to stay in Marsh Hawk! Your hospitality and tutelage was greatly appreciated! We also visited a couple of the establishments you recommended, and agree with your assessment! The condo itself was everything as advertised and very comfortable. The view of the marsh is really priceless!!

Thanks again! We very much look forward to our next visit to Litchfield by the Sea!!

Litchfield by the Sea provides 7 lighted tennis courts, bike trails, and 24 hr gated security. A spa and fitness center is available as is a Starbucks and restaurant in the adjoining Litchfield Beach and Golf. Local restaurants to meet all needs are just minutes away (details on request), as are deep sea fishing and golf. There are 20 golf courses within a 15 minute drive and over 100 courses in the Myrtle Beach area. Brookgreen Gardens, a nationally recognized sculpture garden is 2 miles north and has unequalled family activities, as is the wonderful, seaside Huntington Beach state park for exploring, kayaking and wildlife watching. Just to the south is the inlet dividing Litchfield beach from Pawleys Island, providing a pristine 8-mile beach for walking or shelling. South of Pawleys Island is the Hobcaw Barony, a nature preserve given by the King of England, and eventually to the state by Bernard Baruch, a 19th century Wall Street millionaire who purchased the acreage for a winter hunting retreat. His daughter eventually took over the estate and is responsible for the preservation activities, deeding it to universities in SC. Historic Georgetown on Winyah Bay is a must-see old rice port town as is the historic shrimping village of McClellanville, just south of Georgetown on 17.
