Your Vacation

Check in: Vacationers will be able to check-in at or after 4:00pm on your arrival date. Do not go to the rental house until keys have been picked up at the office as this may delay your check in time. All rentals change on Saturdays unless specified otherwise. If you arrive after office hours, your Guest Check-In Packet will be at our office on the front porch wire rack.

Check out: Your check out time is by 10:00am on your departure date. Please lock the house and return the keys to our office. If you check out before or after office hours, please drop both keys in our office door drop box. Do not leave keys in the house.

Turtle Information

S.C.U.T.E is a non-profit organization formed in response to the need for better protection of sea turtles that nest on Pawleys Island. Over 40 local resident volunteers serve as stewards to protect the turtles nesting habitat and work as educators. The volunteers monitor the beach from May until the last nest hatches. To help the turtles please follow the follwing rules:
  • - Remove all trash, toys and other items from the beach at the end of the day
  • - Please fill in your digs!
  • - Lights out after 10 pm, please
  • - Do not disturb the turtles
  • Currently, Pawleys Island has 21 nests. 
Thank you for helping us keeping our beach turtle friendly. If you would like to find out more information regarding nesting, nest inventories or more, please visit the S.C.U.T.E Facebook page or visit Town Hall here.
