Relaxing Tips for the Pawleys Island/Litchfield Beaches!

Jun-21-2011 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Coming to the Litchfield/Pawleys Island area and want to simply relax? Need some ideas? Here are a few suggestions:

*The obvious – curl up with a book in a Pawleys Island hammock
* Gather the family together on the screened porch, peel some shrimp, and eat some fresh local produce found at the Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays.
* Get your lounge chair, your cooler, and hit the beach (another obvious….but don’t forget the sunscreen and umbrella; relaxing can turn to painful quickly!)
*Go over the Litchfield Inn, sit on the sundeck, listen to some good music, and enjoy a cold beverage
* Rent some bikes and in the morning (don’t wait too late!) go for a long bike ride along our uninterrupted strand.
*Go to Murrells Inlet to Capt. Dick’s Marina and rent a pontoon boat, pile all the family aboard, and “putt-putt” through the Inlet enjoying wildlife and refreshing breezes.
*Brookgreen Gardens – that says it all! But, go in the evening when it is a bit cooler and maybe enjoy a little dinner among the oaks and sculpture.
* Take a day to meander through the Hammock Shops. Canopied with live oaks, you can relax and enjoy local treasures in an historic setting.
* Fish – whether it’s surf-fishing, fishing in the creeks or Inlets, fishing on the river, or even in the small lake in Litchfield By the Sea. Bait your hook, throw your line in, and relax and wait for the fish to bite – or not!

These are just suggestions – we know you can find your own ways to relax in the Litchfield/Pawleys Island area!

Suggestions For Handling Traffic Coming to Litchfield

Jun-20-2011 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Recently I had the dubious honor of having to come back to the Litchfield area on a Saturday – WOW! My route took me through Aynor and Conway down 501…Those of us who live here have no idea what you guys do to just get to us and start your vacations! So, we have come up with a few tips to make it here with less congestion…

* Those of you coming from the Charlotte area may want to consider coming down Interstate 77 to Columbia, getting on Interstate 26 to Charleston, and coming north on Hwy. 17.

* Those of you coming from the High Point/Greensboro area have it made! That route coming on Hwy. 73/74 is amazing! Just make sure that if you are using your GPS, once you get to around Bennettsville change the route setting for the closest – not freeways. It wants to take you to Interstate 95 and that is way out of your way!

* If you are coming in on Hwy. 501, take the Hwy. 544 exit just east of Conway. This gets you out of the bottleneck in Myrtle Beach. You also have an option of taking Hwy. 707 off of 544 that will avoid the congestion at the Hwy 544/Hwy 17 overpass.

* The best suggestion we have – use the Litchfield Real Estate early check-in! For just $60 you can have a guaranteed 1 p.m. check-in. I was coming through Conway at about 12 noon and believe me, the traffic was going to get much, much worse! Get an early start and get checked in before the traffic becomes awful! However, this does not mean to come to the Litchfield Real Estate office prior to 3 p.m. We only guarantee early check-in for just a few properties on a first-come, first-serviced basis and all other check-ins are between 3-5.

Hopefully these few suggestions will help make your trip to our beachfront paradise a little easier! Hope to see you soon!

Great South Litchfield Vacation Rental – Nickas House

Mar-11-2010 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

The Nickas house, located second row in South Litchfield, is the perfect spot for a family get-together! With its five bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, it comfortably sleeps 15! Nickas is just a two minute walk to the beach, and is a popular choice with many of our guests – see some of their thoughts below:

“Great Vacation Home”

A great place to spend time with your family. The walk to the beach isn’t that far, plus the front porch allows you the opportunity to hear the ocean as you relax. Really a nice place to stay on vacation. My family were there last year and will be there again this year.

“Even Better Than Before”

My family stayed here for several years in a row more than a decade ago. We decided to return but I have to admit I was a bit concerned whether it would be as good as we all remembered. IT WAS EVEN BETTER! The house was very well maintained and there were many upgrades and improvements. We love the screened in porch that we remembered and the new sunroom that had been added on to the back. The kitchen is fully equipped and we ended up staying home most nights and cooking a family dinner. We all loved being just across from the ocean and spent lots of time on the beautiful beach. We hope to restart our family tradition of visiting each summer!

You can see, it is a much loved vacation home! Here is a link to the virtual tour of the Nickas house

Oceanfront Beach Vacation Fun – Joyce’s Place

Feb-16-2010 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Joyce’s Place, located oceanfront in South Litchfield, is a great alternative for a family vacation – even four-legged family members! With five bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, this Litchfield Beach house rental will sleep 15 people comfortably! Here is a review of what one guest thought of Joyce’s Place:

“Paradise at the beach!”

This place was fabulous! If you ever wanted to stay on a beachfront location in South Carolina, then, this is the place. This was the 1st time that we stayed in a rented home rather than a hotel and we will never go back to hotel. The comfort that you get just makes this place absolutely enjoyable. You can’t get any closer to the beach than this. It was very clean and beautiful inside. Plenty of room, a nice deck, front porch and privacy are just a few things that sum up “Joyce’s Place”. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Being pet friendly makes a vacation that much more enjoyable for a family, with no more worrying about how the dog is back at home, while you are away. Plenty of covered parking on the property with a very nice front yard as well. We had absolutely no complaints and will return every year for our vacation. I highly recommend this home as you vacation spot – you will not be sorry!

If Joyce’s Place looks like the place for you, call Litchfield Real Estate at 800-437-4241.

Great Rental Oceanfront In Inlet Point – 13E Inlet Point

Feb-12-2010 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Want a cozy oceanfront condo for maybe a quick getaway or to relax for a week? Inlet Point 13E may be just the spot! Two bedrooms, two baths and accessible by elevator! This is a real guest favorite, as noted in these reviews:


Watch the ocean all day long!”

We found this unit very comfortable. The kitchen was amply supplied. Inlet Point is a gated community and therefore affords the comfort of security. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends and family.

“Old rocking chairs on the balcony waves crashing on the shore!”

We really enjoyed our stay at Litchfield and the condo was just perfect. It’s location was as close to the ocean as you could be! I really enjoyed the time I spent, relaxing on the balcony, rocking and read a good book. The condo was perfect for the two of us and beautifully decorated. I would recommend renting this particular to anyone wanting to enjoy the Litchfield Beach area, thanks for a great vacation.

Here is a virtual tour of this great condo

Dot’s Spot is the Perfect Litchfield Beach Vacation Spot!

Jan-27-2010 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Dot’s Spot, located on the east side of the canal at South Litchfield, is the perfect “spot” for your family vacation! With 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, it is roomy enough to sleep 12! Just a four minute walk to the beach, a relaxing screened porch, and a dock on the canal are some of what makes Dot’s Spot a great Litchfield vacation rental for the family! Others feel the same way – here is a review of Dot’s Spot by a former guest:

“Dot’ Spot is a Great spot.”

The location of the house is great. Not on the beach, but at the walkway to the beach. Canal on back side of house was added bonus. Plenty of room for all of our family. We did not get in the way of each other, but were close enough to enjoy ourselves. All eleven of us had a great time and will come back in the future.

A link to the virtual tour for Dot’s Spot is available here.

There is nothing quite like our beaches! Litchfield Real Estate has been selling and providing vacation rentals here for more than 50 years. Trust them with your family’s treasured memories!

Bamboozeled – A Great Vacation Retreat!

Jan-19-2010 By Litchfield Real Estate Staff

Litchfield Real Estate has quite a few fine homes located in different locations in the Litchfield Beach/Pawleys Island/Murrells Inlet/Garden City area! One of these homes is Bamboozeled, a 6 bedroom home located on the canal of South Litchfield. With a dock right on the canal your family can enjoy the true Lowcountry lifestyle with crabbing and amazing flounder fishing…right off your own dock. Bring a small boat and putter around the lovely marsh and creek of South Litchfield. Here are a few reviews from guests who have stayed in Bamboozeled:

“My family had a great Christmas vacation and reunion at Bamboozeled. This house is much larger than it appears. We loved the layout, including the multiple living areas (the front sitting room, the main living room and the downstairs living area). We enjoyed the beautiful view of the creek, especially in the mornings and at sundown! This house is very nicely furnished. The owners have helped to give this house a lot of character. The elevator was a huge plus. Because our visit was in the winter we got a lot of use out of the gas fireplace which was another plus. Thank you for allowing us to share your home!”

Loved It

We absolutely loved the house. Was definitely large enough to accommodate our growing families. It was comfortable. Location was a question before we arrived, but our golf cart made the trek to the beach a piece of cake. The dock was fantastic for fishing, sunning or taking out the kayaks. The multiple living areas were great..nice for sending the kids downstairs to have their own space..really like the sun room, especially in the mornings. Kitchen was well equipped. Table was nice and big. Ice machine was a nice extra. And the elevator was great for bringing in groceries as well as for luggage. We hope to visit again soon”
