The landscape of this single family estate is adorned with old live oak trees providing dappled light for cool outside activities and from which we derived our name. Ocean swimming and sunning on the beach are just a short 3 minute drive across a causeway or just jump into our private pool and spa.
Our retreat sports gracious Charleston architecture and design, spacious entertaining areas including 3 living rooms, bright terraces overlooking lawns and gardens, a private pool and spa. The rear garden/lawn over looking the distant fairway, is fenced so your four footed loved ones can run to his or her hearts content.
So bring the family, bring your dogs, bring your Mother-in-law to Sea Oaks Retreat as vacations are just not complete without them...or not! We also can recommend separate hospitality or daycare for your pets. Mother-in-laws...that's your problem.

About Jonathan Schmitz
My Wife Karen, and I have and art filled and art full family and professional life. We operate a 35 year old interior decorating company in Greenwich CT and we are surrounded by our artistic family, taking after their mother Karen as interior designers, art gallery curators and fine painters. My wife, Karen's painting can be seen throughout Sea Oaks Retreat and her focus is Atlantic coast landscapes and portraits...of both 2 and four legged creatures. When a canvas is not available, she will apply her art to walls as can be seen on many surfaces through Sea Oaks Retreat. We have enjoyed the process of remodeling Sea Oaks Retreat into a special place for our family to gather to recreate, relax and reflect. We hope you find such an experience as well. We look forward to your stay!
Jonathan Schmitz purchased this House in 2009
Why Jonathan Schmitz chose Pawleys Island
We have property in CT, NH and SC and have had the opportunity to travel the shores of the Eastern Seaboard extensively over our lifetime. Our mission in creating Sea Oaks Retreat, was to take what was a well intented, well planned, architecturally distinctive, spacious home and transform it into a competent, inspiring place for our family to come, congregate, recreate and make lasting memories. Sea Oaks Retreat and the Pawleys Island area offer a good balance between an unhurried tempo, privacy, yet one can reach out and find most any sensory or physical inspiration and entertainment within miles of this retreat. Sea,Beach,dine, wine, sun, fun, bike, trike, cycle, fish, sail, boat, golf, swim, tennis, talk, sleep...the list goes on.
What makes this House unique
Our Sea Oaks Retreat home, allows for a high level of space, set in a distinctive interior decor, surrounded by spacious patios, a pool, spa, and fenced in lawns/gardens, yet moments for the ocean, marsh, forests, creeks, horse back riding, sail boarding, fishing etc.. And if that is too 'laid back' one can run up to Myrtle Beach or make a day trip to Charleston for all sorts of live and lively entertainment for all ages. Here is a list/links some local favorites: Brookgreen Gardens Hobcaw Barony (the Belle Baruch Institute) Huntington State Park Broadway at the Beach Hopseweeplantation.com Hopsewee Plantation and Tea room Hampton Plantation State Historic Site
