Close to the Pawleys Island beaches, and restaurants. You’ll love our beach cabin because of the location which is in a residential neighborhood away from high-rise condos and crowds, yet less than a mile from the beach access and a few blocks from fishing on the marsh. Relax in the hot tub, walk for dinner at the Raw Bar, or grab some groceries at the Lowes Foods (walking distance) and enjoy a meal at home. Short drive to Brookgreen Gardens. Our place is good for couples, or families.

The space

This is a five bedroom beach cabin .8 miles from the nearest beach access point. The fifth bedroom is used as a cool hang out space for the teens, but has a comfy sofa bed. From this bedroom you have direct access to the back patio with hot tub. The cabin was unloved and in shambles, but we have been restoring it to a cozy little place by the sea. As such, those who prefer high rise condos with lots of new stuff and white walls may not enjoy our place. We have left the knotty pine walls and heart pine floors.

The house and kitchen are purposely designed for a low maintenance. The kitchen includes a full sized refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, large double bowl apron sink, cabinets, and small butcher block rolling cart. There is silverware, glasses, and dishes for 12 guest. There are also 3-5 pots and pans, small baking set, manual can opener, a small grill set, and wine bottle opener. Things we do not keep at the cabin are things like gourmet cookware, a lot of extra utensils, and any other optional items.

Guest access

You will rent and have access to the entire home. The hot tub is not operational at this time :(. Check with me before booking to see if it is available for your stay.

Interaction with guests

We are a phone call away, and there is a great handyman in town that we call should there be any problems during your stay.

Other things to note

We provide free linen at the beach cabin (others in Myrtle beach charge approx. $200 per week). Having said that, there is one set of linen and blanket/comforter for each bed, and a towel/washcloth provided for each of your guest. We do not leave extras around the house. Additionally, please do not take the linen to the beach or out of the house.
The cabin borders a private wooded lot on the left and in front. We have a partial shared gravel driveway with the neighbor on the right... a friendly former rock and roll drummer with a really loud truck, lol.

The house is very spacious and clean; it comfortably accommodated a large family like mine. Darlene was very responsive whenever I reached out to her and pleasant to talk too. Honestly speaking, the place exceeded our expectations overall, It was clean, spacious and accessible to many attractions in the area. Would wholeheartedly recommend this home.

Darlene replied quickly to any question we had, she was always a text message away. The location of the house is perfect, short drive to the beach, supermarket and restaurants. The house was very clean and more spacious than the pictures depict. We would definitely come back here.

Darlene's beach cabin is adorable! So much more spacious than the photos depict. The location is awesome! We never drove more than 10 minutes for great food and beach access. I loved all the original artwork. We hope to visit again soon!

The host made me feel like family, we had the opportunity to speak on the phone and she was very pleasant. My family and I are considering making this our summer vacation spot. The house is nothing short than AMAZING!! We couldn't find anything wrong with the house everything that we needed was right at our fingertips. I have already referred family and friends to the house, the pictures on your website (Airbnb) doesn't do this place justice, it was stunning.

You were such a wonderful guest. We would love to have you back anytime. You left the home as you found it, and the communication was great. I would recommend your group to any host. A+

Darlene was very responsive....all of my questions were quickly was clean and was a bit sparse but Darlene brought us a toaster and a few other things I (URL HIDDEN) only complaint is that all of the beds were rather rickety (headboards not attached in some rooms, mattresses not supported properly so that several of us accidentally fell of the foot of the bed when we sat down on it because there was no support under them)....the house was a quick drive away from the local beach and stores which was very nice.

Response from Darlene:
Thank you for the review. I am glad you had a nice trip. I am so happy you enjoyed the quick drive to the beach, cleanliness of the house (which we take really seriously), comfort, and other amenities. We will reattach any headboards as needed, thanks for that feedback. Yes, the house is in a regular neighborhood so the neighbors can be noisy during the summer months (mentioned on our advertisement for the house), I hope it didn't keep you up!! We are glad you enjoyed the things we added to the house during your stay. Best wishes.

We are a couple of adventurous academics who have lived in America and Europe. We love the quietness of our quirky street which includes new construction, old beach cabins, and even a few 'beach' mobile homes. Our favorite international city is Paris, favorite music.... almost anything, love old mysteries (books, movies, TV), and visiting art museums. While we love a luxury resort occasionally. When traveling we prefer neighborhoods with locals regular folks, and avoid pretense. Our beach cabin reflects this attitude.
