About Shane & Julie O'Brien

We are a family of 5 that loves the outdoors. This location offers us access to all the things we love to do.

Shane & Julie O'Brien purchased this house in 2012

Why Shane & Julie O'Brien chose Pawleys Island

We have been visiting SC for 20 years, our parents moved here over tens years ago and we decided it was time to own our own piece of the Carolinas.

What makes this house unique

We love to go to the beach, ride bikes to Huntington State Park and walk the beautiful gardens at Brook Green. Our family is very athletic we enjoy surfing, kayaking, golf, tennis and running. Compared to New England the water is warm year round for swimming with an average temperature of 69 degrees.

Also we enjoy everything the surrounding area has to offer shopping , attractions and amazing restaurants. Five minutes away is Murrells Inlet, South Carolina's Seafood capital.

We also enjoy just relaxing in the beauty that surrounds this property. Its great to just sit out back on the deck and read a book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was amazing, everyone had thier own space. Extremly well kept.

Its the best house we ever rented in Pawley's Island. The back deck was the highlight for the kids. All kinds of wild life. Also we went ghost crabbing(suggested by the owner) flashlights on the beach at night, If you have not done this, you have to so much fun.

Are only regret is that the week went to fast

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week. The open concept with great kitchen and large living area was great. Master bedroom was so relaxing. We also enjoyed the serene pond views and convenient boardwalk to beach and pool access.

Sea Urchin

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. We loved the area. The only complaint that we had was about the cleaning We arrived early so I walked in the house and introduced myself to the cleaning lady. I told her that since they were not finished cleaning that we would go ride around and come back so they could finish. She told me that they just had to get the dirt off the floor in one of the bedrooms. So they packed up and left. When we started checking the house out we discovered that none of the bathrooms had been cleaned. So I called Mr O'Brien who immediately called the man over the cleaning ladies. That man told Mr O'Brien that the ladies had called him and told him that they had been rushed out of the house and did not get to sweep and mop downstairs. Not true. That they were gone for the day and had Sunday off. They could come back on Monday. This was on a Saturday and obviously we would need to use the bathrooms before Monday. Mr. O'Brien was very apologetic about my situation but really what could he do. He was not there. Not his fault. So we had to clean bathrooms ourselves. I know that they did not clean them because the toilets were dirty, showers had Soap scum from people's soap before(where they had put their soap) and sinks and vanities were sticky and just not clean. Mr O'Brien checked on us later and was still sorry about the way our vacation started and wanted to make sure nothing else was wrong. He is a very nice man. Again none of this was his fault. The house was great and comfortable. I would rent this house again. He was a pleasure to deal with. Leigh Dollard

comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed everything about our week at the beach. This property is well-maintained and was a perfect floor-plan for us! The large shower in the basement was ideal for showering the sand off when we returned from the beach. The kitchen was spacious, especially loved the double ovens! The children enjoyed the screened-in porch and loved to see the fish jumping in the lake. We also saw the alligator several times.

The week provided our family with memories that will last a lifetime!

This house has met every need for a large multiple family stay. The owners keep the house fresh and up to date. Close to the beach and easy access if you have a cart. Close to community pool. We enjoy staying here every year.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time I have been to Pawley's Island for vacation and it was the best ever. All the family together is a lovely home. The house is so spacious there was plenty of room for all 14 of us - ages 1 to 68. Just a short walk to a nice pool and 3 blocks from the beach - an easy trip w/ the golf cart (rented). We're already planning our trip next year. Thank you O'Briens.

Close to everything 1 Hour to Charleston for a day trip or 20 minutes to the heart of Myrtle beach. All is within reach but far enough to forget about it, if you choose. Within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, beaches and bike path. Brookgreen gardens and Huntington State park just around the corner.
