About Eden Evins

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.

Eden Evins purchased this house in 1954

Why Eden Evins chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The home is truly our home away from home. The beach is so lovely in the off season, walking on the beach, the light is beautiful, and the house is such a gracious retreat. The beds and linens are so comfortable, the living rooms are perfect for playing cards with the kids, watching movies together, and the highlight is the big dining room with the round table and lazy susan. We have the best conversations. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you long for the way Southern islands used to feel, this is the place for you. Pawley's has many historic cottages that would be torn down in most other places. And Haps Up is a slice of Americana. Coming from Wrightsville Beach, NC, with loads of fast boats and giant homes with three feet between them, Haps Up will remind you of a more gracious lifestyle. On a beautiful treed lot (fortunately common on Pawley's), it is a generous home with high ceilings and cypress paneling throughout. The roar of the ocean is only a few feet from the front dock and the porch is marvelous. From soft linens to well equipped kitchen, the owners have thought of everything a traveler would need. We had a meaningful visit to an incredible place. I would recommend this to anyone I thought worthy of the experience!

One of THE BEST vacation rentals we've ever stayed in! And agree with another review - the pictures really don't do Haps Up justice. From the cypress panelling, to the casually elegant antiques, the luxurious bedding, the breathtaking views from the huge screen porch PLUS gigantic deck! We could go on and on, but suffice to say we LOVE Haps Up and are so grateful to have discovered it! Thank you to the owners for sharing your piece of heaven with us & others!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this home justice. Great spot for families or just adults. The agent was responsive to needs (one of the smoke detectors needed repair- happened immediately) the house itself is comfortable, great location and everything we could possibly need except the food was at the location. There is an UP and a DOWN so you may have neighbors but ours were great.

Close to the ocean, nice swimming, great listening to the surf at night.
