Anchor In, a wonderful family beach house on non-commercial beautiful Pawleys Island, is available for rental in all seasons. Anchor In has the delightful atmosphere of the old-style island house, but has been completely renovated and has all the modern conveniences.
Pawleys Island is a rare, unspoiled, and completely non-commercial, historic resort island on the South Carolina coast. Our traditional and lovely beach house, on the island (not the mainland), has an ocean view from the top floor.
The beautiful salt marsh tidal creek, a haven for migratory birds, is less than one minute from our back door, and we have a two-decker wooden dock where you can relax and let your cares drift away in this idyllic setting.
The wide sandy beaches and the ocean are a two-minute walk from our front door, just across the street and over the sand dunes.
A two-minute drive takes you onto the mainland, with many stores, restaurants, and shops. There are quaint and historic lowcountry towns nearby to visit, and stunning local nature preserves and state parks less than an hour away. Also nearby are tennis camps, many renowned golf courses, fabulous outlet shopping malls, and entertainment arcades.
Anchor In has been owned by the same family since its original construction in 1939. (See our black-and-white photo from the 1940's on our website!)
In addition to all the ordinary types of goods and services, local shopping on the mainland adjacent to Pawleys includes the world-famous Hammock Shop, where you can see these hand-woven, cotton rope hammocks.
There are many historic and scenic lowcountry towns nearby, starting with charming and historic Georgetown, 12 miles south of Pawleys. Walk along the boardwalk on the Sampit River, visit the rice museum, and be sure to pick up some treats from our favorite place, Kudzu Bakery and Market.
Places to experience and learn about nature abound near Pawleys. Hobcaw Barony, a 17,500-acre wildlife refuge and education center, is eleven miles south of Pawleys. Also, Brookgreen Gardens, an enthralling collection of outdoor statuary, together with a wildlife preserve, is just eight miles north.
A paradise for bird-watching can be found at Huntington Beach State Park, also eight miles from Pawleys. This park is considered by many birders to be the best birding spot on the East Coast!
Eating out and enjoying seafood in waterside restaurants is an art form in nearby Murrell's Inlet. Fresh local fish, shellfish of all kinds, a relaxed atmosphere, and lovely views make this small town a treasure.
If your taste runs to outlet shopping, head towards Myrtle Beach - 22 miles away. Myrtle Beach also is home to world-renowned golf courses, and an exciting Pavilion.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you will enjoy our island house as much as we have.
