About Eden Evins

Hap's House has been in our family for four generations. We cherish both our family home and beautiful Pawleys Island and hope that you will too!

Our grandfather, Hap, bought the house right after the famous Hurricane Hazel, put it on stilts and built this first floor that is now Hap's Down, at that time. The interior walls throughout are of unique tongue and groove pecky cypress with exceptionally beautiful color and texture.

Why Eden Evins chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

This home was written about in the NY Times,

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy being steps from the beach and from the tidal salt marsh. We enjoy the beach for swimming, body surfing, paddleboarding (rentals available by the day or week at nearby Surf the Earth) walking, and socializing and we enjoy the creek for the ever changing colors, abundant active birdlife, crabbing, fishing, kayaking, and sunset watching!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a beautifully cared for, special place. It is a historic home that feels so comfortable, so easy to walk out front to the beach, out back to the crab dock (sunsets on the dock are a must!) or just swing in one of the hammocks, there's one in the screen porch and one on the gazebo that overlooks the waves and the beach. The kitchen has everything you need, even a big pot for cooking up the crabs we caught in the crab traps provided. I highly recommend this house!!! By the way, the beds and linens are so comfortable, it's a challenge to get out of bed, but the sound of the waves got us up!

Perfect vacation spot for a small group

  • 5 of 5

This house is so perfect! It is located minutes away from restaurants and stores, and it is right on the beach! It has everything anyone could want in the kitchen area. It also has beach equipment to use for your stay.

The sunrises are gorgeous, and sunsets are beautiful from the front of the house. We love "beach days" as well as time spent exploring Pawleys island and nearby towns.

It would be perfect for a small family...or two couples.

We are having a large time!!

I want to return next year for sure!

Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house in the off-season...great location for a family. You can't beat the marsh dock for crabbing and fishing as well as the access to the beach. The hammocks are great. Mattresses, sheets and towels are excellent. It had everything we needed!

Rarely do you find the beach and the marsh along with a home that will give you a true old time South Carolina beach experience. Staying at Haps Down will give you privacy at the beach that is hard to find. Haps Down was clean and comfortable. The location on the island is perfect. Having the linens and towels provided is a huge bonus! After traveling to get to Pawleys it is a treat to have the beds made up!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Private beach within steps of the house. Private fishing/crabbing pier right out the back door. This rustic rental has a charm all of it's own. We spent a fantastic labor day weekend with our children and grandparents. We have such great memories finding star fish and sand dollars on the beach to catching (and releasing) 23 fairly large crabs within an hour of high tide. We are already planning our return visit to this Little Piece of Heaven. Thanks for having us.
