Manager info

Year Purchased: 1954

About: Hap's House has been in our family for four generations. It was purchased by my grandfather in the aftermath of Hurricane Hazel, a whopper of a storm in 1954 that landed this house and so many others on their sides. Our grandfather and his friends put the house up onto stilts and built what is now the first floor at that time. The flexible local tongue and groove cypress construction is credited for the house's survival of that storm.

Why Pawleys Island, SC, USA:
Be right on the beach, also right on the marsh with a dock on both. Sunrise over the ocean, walk, run, swim, then go watch the sunset over the tidal marsh. The sounds of the surf and the breeze through the palmettos in the day and add cicadas in the dunes at night. This home was written about in the NY times, it's an amazing place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Direct access to both beach and tidal marsh from a beautiful home of tongue and groove cypress, beautifully and comfortably furnished and well maintained. It's in the mid island, the highest and widest part of the island yet with live oaks surrounding the home for privacy. It is heaven!
