About Bill Grubb co-owner

We retired to Pawleys Island after living in Saratoga California for 25 years.

The major reasons why we live here are the wonderful warm, safe ocean and beach , the great golf and tennis, the many recreational things the Lowcountry has to offer, the southern ambience, and the availability of so many fine restaurants and fun places for families and children.

We also like having an easy drive to Charleston and being only 25 minutes away to Myrtle Beach and the MB airport.

We very much wanted a community that was friendly , intellectually stimulating, has easy access to cultural events and airports . We did like not having the traffic jams we had in California and the greater New York area. We have found our little piece of heaven!

We lived most of our adult lives in Northern California. We were born , raised , and educated in New York City. We also lived for seven wonderful years in rural Maryland ,in the 1970s.

We love the outdoors , activley use the ocean and inlet for crabbing , fishing , shrimping and fishing and long wonderful walks and bike rides.

We travel extensively, and spend a great deal of our time on the west coast where our children and 13 grandchildren reside.

We love meeting our guests and assisting them in making their vacation as enjoyable as possible.

We were in the legal and technology business prior to our retirements.

We have 4 grown children, and 13 grandchildren , who spend a great deal of time with us every summer. We try to meet every guest to find out how we can make your vacation experience the very best. Most of our guests have been renting with us for years.

Bill Grubb co-owner purchased this house in 2000

Why Bill Grubb co-owner chose Pawleys Island

.When we decided to retire, we researched all of the USA and decided that the Litchfield / Pawleys Island area is the best beach area resort on the east coast. The 8 mile beach is the best we know of, and the ambience of Pawleys Island cannot be beat.

We wanted to be as close to a warm Beach / Ocean as possible [ Carolina Dreamin'is a 2 1/2 minute walk or about 150 yards away ] have access to our seldom, used pool [ 30 seconds away ], have access to, and be within walking distance to free lighted tennis courts, and a 3 mile jogging and bike path in our private resort .

We wanted our home to be in a safe, children friendly, clean, family envirement .

Golf is very important to most of our guests who vacation here. In fact it is a great place for children to learn as there are a number of children golf schools close by.

We are within 5 minutes of seven great golf courses which is great for our friends , family and guests.There are over 100 more courses within 30 minutes of our home.

Thus we purchased the land, designed a home to accomadate all of our the grandkids [then 4 now 13 ] , choose a quality builder and then added all the amenities that we and our family would like to have.

We needed plenty of bedrooms [6 ] and as many full baths as possible [6 ]. We built our beach home 17 years ago and are as proud and happy with it today as we were when we built it. Our home has ' good bones ' great amenities and many happy memories.

After 18 years we are more ever happy with our decision to live here .

We have invited former guests to be co-owners .Now we have two great families, from Georgia to California that co-own our home with us.They have been co-owners for 15and 10 years respectively.

What makes this house unique

Accommodates up to 16, gated community, pool 30 seconds away, ocean 2 1/2 minutes , gated private access resort, close to shopping, Myrtle Beach and all the entertainment things you can think of.

Our home is very tastefully decorated, has all of the things needed to make a vacation hassle free, in a very family oriented community. Though you are close to everything, you never feel crowded. The people who have rented our home in the past we consider to be caring , classy people who have taken care of our home as if it were their own. We have become friends with a number of them. Most of our guests have been coming the same week for a number of years.

Most of our guests have rented for multiple years , thus there is a lack of availabilty of prime summer dates. We suggest you book as early as possible to reseve the week you want.

The months of April, May, September & October are delightful here, the beaches are empty, the ocean is warm and the fish are biting. The golf courses are fun and beckoning . The winters are mild and pleasant. This winter we have had fourteen or more days in the 70's .

Riding bikes on the beach , at low tide, is one of the great joys of our beach and we provide the bikes to do just that. Charleston , Brookgreen Gardens , Murrels Inlet , historic Georgetown and of course the Grand Strand are all part of our greater cultural envirement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is nice, well-maintained, very clean and the kitchen is nicely stocked for cooking and eating.

It's very close to the pool and beach and the rooftop deck has awesome views.

Everything seems in great order!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at Carolina Dreamin for a wedding and had a wonderful time. House is exactly as described and perfect for a group of couples or a family. Tons of beds for everyone to sleep in and great kitchen/ living area. Bill is great to work with and would recommend this house to anyone looking for a beach getaway.

Comment Text: A good time...

  • 5 of 5

Comment Text: A good time was had by all! We had a family reunion of elderly cousins. We felt like we were staying in a mansion because the home was beautifully decorated and so spacious. It was perfect for the whole family to sit around together. Grocery stores and restaurants were conveniently near. The ocean was just a short walk away.Litchfield community is beautiful. All I can say is WOW!

Despite less than perfect weather, our stay at Carolina Dreamin' was great. The house was well equipped and the owner was hospitable and accomodating. The house allowed space for everyone. It was an easy walk to the beach and pool. We had a great time visiting with family and friends. We loved having bikes to use and tennis so close by. We would certainly come back to this great house in a great resort.
