Spring has sprung and Summer is on the horizon.

With the smell of spring in the air, Pawleys Island Realty is gearing up for a busy summer season. Vacation rental properties are being deep cleaned and we are beginning to see some friendly faces of our return guests. This is an exciting time of the year, preparing for first time guests and our return guests.

Every year we look forward to what the summer season will bring. It’s the time of the year to sit out on your vacation rental porch or deck with a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy the sunrise over the Atlantic. Whether you are looking to kayak in the marsh or dig your toes in the ocean, Pawleys Island is such a special place to create some wonderful memories.

With some new rental properties to the Pawleys Island Realty rental family, we would love to introduce to you Cabin Creek at 148 Wyndham Road. This creek front property nestled off the South Causeway offers a 4-bedroom, 3-bath spacious layout perfect for fishing, kayaking, or crabbing in your backyard.

Also, new to our rental family is Zorro’s Si at 424 Myrtle Avenue. This oceanfront property sits back off Myrtle Avenue and offers a cozy feeling to enjoy family time together. Whether you want to sit on the back porch or take a stroll on the beach, this property offers the best of both.

If you have a large family or friends that want to join you in Pawleys, check out In the Nick of Time at 662 Springs Avenue. This oceanfront property has 6-bedrooms and 6-full bathrooms along with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your vacation. With the creek dock right across the street, this property offers the best of both worlds. Laying out on the beach during the day and fishing in the evening.

Dog Days of Summer

July, already?! We hope you had a great Fourth of July. If you were on Pawleys Island for the Fourth, hopefully you enjoyed the Annual Parade and the Flyover. It was HOT, HOT, HOT but thankfully the ocean was a great place to cool off. More great ways to cool down would be swinging in the hammock or floating in the creek. Although no fireworks are allowed on the island, there were several great places to enjoy the show.

There are several fun activities happening in the area during the next few summer weeks. Brookgreen Gardens has a Summer Light: Art by Night Event on Wednesdays and Saturdays through August. This is a great experience to view the lit gardens and sculptures. Find out more here : https://www.brookgreen.org/events/summer-light-art-night.

The Saltwater Fishing Clinic is hosting several fishing clinics at Hobcaw Barony and Huntington Beach State Park during the month of July. Sounds like a fun experience for everyone.

Restaurants and bars all throughout the area have live music at nights. Sit back, relax with a cold one and some delicious local food enjoying fantastic bands. You can find schedules for both the clinics and the live music shows here.

Don’t forget, the beach and creek are just a few steps away. Swim, build sandcastles, shell, or simply enjoy the solitude and relaxation Pawleys offers.

Enjoy your July. We’ll see you on Pawleys Island!

Summer of ’23

It’s summer.

The summer we’ve promised ourselves year after year. Kids are changing grades, moving schools and in some cases graduating to the next step. Time flies- but, this summer doesn’t have to. Relish every memory you make on your Pawleys vacation. The sun, sand, salty ocean and the feeling of being present. Here are five ways to slow down this summer:

1. Not having a schedule – Wake up late, have an early lunch, swim by the sea and tell time by the tides. Relax in the summer moment and give yourself to the throws of vacation. Instead of a To-Do, make a I-Did list.
2. Visit new locations – Never visited Georgetown, SC? What about Charleston? There is a ton of rich history, scenic drives and stories to hear about our beautiful but historic low country.
3. Be spontaneous – Try a new activity. Surfing, kite flying, paddle-boarding.. any of these options are fun experiences and will be totally memorable.
4. Celebrate – A lot was accomplished this year. Take a minute to celebrate your accomplishments and look forward to the future successes. You did it!
5. Don’t let boredom win – It’s not a state or being, it’s a challenge. Have a sandcastle competition, see who can find the best shells, race to the closest marker. The world is your oyster!

This summer is about you and your memories. Enjoying the little moments, feeling the joy and smelling the pluff mud when crossing the causeway. Take a minute away to just be this year. It’s the summer for you!

Pawleys Island: Are dogs allowed on the beach?

This is an age old, commonly asked question.

We love the beach, our four-legged friends do too! There are leash laws in effect during certain times of the year. All dogs must be on a leash from May 1 – Sept 30 (8 am – 8 pm). Please be courteous to others and pick up after your pets. Doggie bags are provided at the public beach accesses. We want everyone, people and pets alike to enjoy the beach. My three dogs love to play in the surf and chasing the seagulls.

It’s important to remember to bring your pet water while you’re in the sun, too! The sand can get very hot and could burn their pads if you decide to visit mid-day during the summer. Just be aware!

Send us a picture of your dog enjoying Pawleys Island to susan@pawleysislandrealty.com and we would love to showcase your photos.

Have fun!

The beauty of March in Pawleys Island

Life in Pawleys is such a wonderful blessing. As you are crossing the causeway, you experience the welcoming smell of pluff mud and the salty breeze from the ocean. March is such a beautiful time of the year on Pawleys. With sunny days and a cool breeze at night, there is not a time of the day that does not feel comforting. Even the now and then showers are welcomed. Our guests enjoy their return, year after year, as they know that the beach is ready for them, and the marsh is calling their name for a bit of kayaking or even some well-deserved crabbing.

We have welcomed a few new properties to our rental family in the past few months. Vitamin Sea at 45 Pinehurst is a great location for overflow or golfers. Sandy Shores, located at 5 Bobcat Drive begins renting in April. Pour Decisions located at 37 Bobcat Drive is perfect for a home away from home. Playin Hooky at 402 Myrtle Avenue has returned to our rental family as well. Arrogantly Shabby at 254 Pearce is getting a facelift by the new owners and will be coming soon to rent.

Please reach out to us at 843-237-2000 with any questions or if you are interested in booking today. We look forward to hearing from you.

Spring has Sprung!

Finally! We are thankful spring is in the air. The weather is nice, the water is beginning to warm up and life is back at the beach! This spring is full of excitement and fun activities. Brookgreen Gardens is offering several fun events and the flowers are blooming. So beautiful! They also have a restaurant so you can spend the entire day exploring. They also have a plant sale if you have a green thumb.
If you are interested in sports, you should check out the Pelicans baseball games in Myrtle Beach. It’s always a fun time for families.
And always, the beach and creek are wonderful places to just relax. Put your toes in the sand- or pluff mud- and take time for yourself! Life has been busy and we want to provide you with the perfect home for you to feel the Pawleys breeze, enjoy the spring weather and feel the sun on your back. Call us today to find your home away from home!

Winter Weather

Whew! We had a mild fall but this February weather is chilly. It’s still beautiful here, but we are a little cold. Sand is way better than snow. I think we are all ready for our springtime vibes. We are lucky to live in a place with only a few weeks of cold weather but none of us know how to handle it. Things are looking better with highs of 67 over the next few days. Still, Pawleys is the best place to relax, get away from the craziness of everyday life. Come put your feet on the sand and enjoy the peacefulness Pawleys has to offer.
