The POOL is large and beautiful - can be seen in two of the photos. The pool is adjacent to the house, you can easily see & call to family members at the pool from either of the decks of the house. The pool is the community pool of Charlestowne Grant community association within Litchfield by the Sea - about 50 houses, mostly retired people who don't use the pool. The pool is large with a lot of shallow area, great for kids.

Make wonderful family vacation memories with sandcastles on the beach or relaxing by the pool.

About Jon Howard

Sue and I have worked in telecommunications most of our careers. We live in New Jersey and enjoy sailing, music, and spending time with good friends.

Jon Howard purchased this house in 1996

Why Jon Howard chose Pawleys Island

We started vacationing in the Myrtle Beach/Pawleys Island area 30 years ago when Sue's parents retired there. Our girls grew up with wonderful experiences in the pool, at the beach, and at the amusements in Myrtle Beach. We love it there!

What makes this house unique

The 5 bedrooms make lots of space for family gatherings with grandparents, kids, and grandkids. You're very close to the beach and a large pool, so you have your choice every day, every hour.

Great Location and house

  • 5 of 5

Your lovely home was the perfect setting for our first family trip with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We hadn’t been to the beach in over 20 years so you can imagine the excitement we all were experiencing. The house was lovely and exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well stocked and the large griddle was great for grilled sandwiches and the pancakes our 9 year old grandson prepared. The beach was not crowded but after a few jelly fish bites (which the locals told us was unusal ) a little more time was spent in the convenient pool.. That was an added bonus to renting your home. Thank you for your list of places to visit and eat. We referred to your suggestions several times. We can’t say enough about how perfect the week was and we hope to come there again to experience different times of the year. We were so glad we booked this home many months in advance. Would you believe Pops and Nana received 5 wonderful thank you notes just days after we returned home. As our young grandson said, "I hope we can do this again".

Fantastic Location - easy walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here! The location is fantastic with easy access to beach and awesome to see the pool from decks of the house. Nice to have a grill to use and an "outdoor" shower in the garage for cleaning off after the beach. Great to have a large "pantry" closet to store snacks/food with multiple families. Family members really enjoyed all the space on the decks. Plenty of space in living areas. Nice to have 5 bedrooms with 4 baths - small bedrooms/baths (master bed and bedroom were large) but private and very livable.

There’s not much to put in a review that hasn’t already been said. Ten of us - three generations, with the youngest 21 months old - spent a week at Southern Comfort. It was perfection! The house is beautiful, and the floorpan allows for communal living as well as quiet spaces. The porches always have a breeze. The proximity to pool and beach is just wonderful. The gently sloping boardwalk makes it so easy to get a bike to the beach, which is not the case most places. The huge garage has tons of parking, an outdoor shower, space to easily keep and access our 7 bikes, and a room filled with beach and pool toys for renters to use. With four small kids, we chose to eat at home the whole time. The kitchen didn’t let us down with 30 meals/day plus snacks. Litchfield by the Sea is beautifully landscaped and maintained, so from the minute you turn off the main highway you enter a tropical paradise. Southern Comfort is a gem in that paradise. I hope we can return year after year.

Great vacation home for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Southern Comfort! Our family of 12 (ages ranging from 4 months to 66) had a great time! The proximity to the beach and pool was great! The five bedrooms enabled everyone to have his/her own space, yet there was room enough for us to gather for meal times and to enjoy being together as a family. We loved renting bicycles and riding through the beautiful property safely on bike paths. The pool was very nice and clean, and the beach was wide and flat - lots of room for sand castles, etc. And oh, the porch - it was phenomenal with a constant breeze and scenic views of the ocean and property from every angle. We also appreciated that there were lots of porch chairs for us to enjoy the breeze, the view, and conversation! Jon Howard, the owner, is so good to work with. We were in Litchfield a month before our scheduled visit and wanted to see the property. This is a gated community so we couldn't get in without a code or pass. I texted Jon and he quickly made a call and we were allowed past the gate to see the property. The community is great to with a grocery store, great restaurants, ice cream and things to do only a bike ride away!
