We were looking for a beach cottage that felt like we were at camp. This was met our expectations. Hardwood floors throughout. A/C worked fine in the living room, kitchen, master room. Bathrooms do not have vents so they did get a little warm. The average temp while we were there was around 74 degrees. Screened porch was our favorite part. Kitchen is small. Bathrooms only have showers. The steps into this cottage are a little challenging. I would not recommend this if you have any knee or hip issues. This cottage is located on a corner lot and is a 5 minute walk to the beach. It was clean, however we did notice a cigarette smoke scent in the house when the a/c would come on. Tv's are only in master bedroom and living room. The only things I would change would be better lighting in the entire house and larger mirrors in the rooms. Bring and extension cord because outlets are not that accessible in every room. The real estate co gave us a nice tote with toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent and dishwasher powder and a list of local restaurants that give discounts if you show your cottage key ring. We really enjoyed this trip and how quiet Pawley's is. Love the Low country and will return.
Thank you for sharing your experience staying at Flickinger. Sounds as though you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate suggestions from guests which are always shared with the owner. Hope to see you back on the beach soon!
Had a great stay at Flickinger - would return. Direct beach access was a huge plus, as was the well equipped kitchen. Good location with park right across the street, too. It is older but we didn't mind that. Steps were a little tough, would not work well for older folk.
Was concerned about temperature from other reviews, but the issue was that two of the three bedrooms did not have aC vents - the one that did and the living room were cool. We got around this by leaving the door open at night in the room where the baby was sleeping and it kept a cool temperature for him. Better ceiling fans would help. Also, for those travelling with little ones, it's only showers, no baths. Saw a couple of bugs but otherwise it seemed like the property was kept clean and well maintained.
Sounds like you enjoyed your rustic relaxation at Flickinger! Thank you for taking time out to share your comments. We look forward to seeing you back on the beach soon!
Because we were so thrilled to be back in our most favorite beach - Pawleys - we tried to make the best of things. Upon our arrival we quickly realized that 1)the place seemed to be a lot smaller than the pictures showed; 2)the aC didn't cool the entire house (bedrooms were hot); and 3)a smoker had been the renter previous to our stay... and the smoke had been left behind. I was happy that Litchfield Real Estate very quickly had someone come to do an air clean of the entire house just a couple of hours after our arrival - necessary since one of our party has asthma. We just tried to enjoy the rustic-ness of the place (scary staircase - just about all of us tripped or fell on those steps; tiny bathrooms; tiny kitchen; too hot bedrooms). Midway through our stay, the aC quit working, but again Litchfield Realty had someone to us within the hour to fix it. I grew up going to Pawleys, and we stayed at some pretty rustic places, but this really was above and beyond rustic, and I will look twice before picking a much less expensive home without wondering...why? We love Pawleys, but we did not love Flickinger.
We agree that Pawleys Beach is one of the best and that Flickinger is a basic, rustic beach house - and we advertise it as such. Flickinger isn't for everyone but we have several dedicated repeat guests who love the rustic simplicity of this house! Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We look forward to finding a more suitable beach house for your next visit to the beach!
Flickinger is a real keeper. Great location and a killer porch. It was real hard to move from the rocking chairs on the porch to take the short walk to the beach. This was one of the most relaxing vacations my family has had in a long time. Litchfield Real Estate was great. I loved the welcome package and having the beds made with plenty of towels. We still washed towels everyday but the washer and dryer were great. We will be back!
Flickinger is quintessential Low Country living! We're glad you discovered it and appreciate the time you took to share your experience with us! See you next year!
Flickinger was a great cozy beach cottage. It was just a quick walk to the beach and the salt marsh. The Litchfield staff was courteous and helpful. Pawleys Island has lots of great places close by to dine, and it was close enough to go to Myrtle Beach to do those tourist activities with the kids. Unfortunately, the weather kept us indoors a few days and it became a little too cozy.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay in Flickinger. Unfortunately during your week we did have a lot of rain... hopefully when you come back the weather will be amazing! Thank you for your review!
Pawleys Island is the perfect family vacation site: A beautiful beach, great local restaurants, and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that makes your stay enjoyable.
Flickinger is a wonderful, small house (3 bedrooms) that allows a family to spread out and have some space. It is a two minute walk to the beach and miles away from the stresses and deadlines of work and home. Sit on the porch and listen to the waves. It is a relaxation exercise in itself.
This was our second trip to Pawleys Island and second stay with Litchfield Real Estate. The service was excellent. From the fudge at the office counter to the repairman who fixed a minor problem with the television (and recommended two really nice local golf courses), everyone was professional and friendly.
We made memories that will last for generations. Thank you Litchfield. It was a memorable family vacation.
You are welcome! We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation! Flickinger is a very popular house for a number of reasons. We hope to see you again very soon!
It was great, it was nice to be able to walk to the beach out the front door and not have to cross the street! This was our family vacation for the summer, we having been vacationing at Pawleys Island for years!!
Check in and Check out with Litchield Realty was nice too!
We glad you enjoyed your stay in Flickinger! The location of that house is fabulous! We hope to see you and your family again soon!
This was our third stay at Flickinger, and we plan to stay again! The house isn't really large, but it has ample space for a small group and it has a good floor plan. There is a master bedroom and bath on one side of the house, and two bedrooms with a shared bath on the other side with an attractive living area between the spaces. The kitchen is tiny but it's sufficient. There's a large refrigerator and washer/dryer on one side, and nice stove, double sink, and dishwasher on the other. The front porch catches the sea breezes, and the walk to the ocean is a short one. My husband and I have always lived close to Pawley's Island, and we know the area well. We both agree that Flickinger is a comfortable beach retreat, and we look forward to spending more time there. We are also glad that this property is pet-friendly! Our little pup, Brie, loves being able to spend time on the front porch!
Thank you for your review of Flickinger! It truly is a wonderful, relaxed beach cottage! We hope to see you and Brie back very soon!
The house was great and a perfect little walk to the beach. House could use some TLC and the bedrooms would be very warm in the evenings. House was clean and Litchfield Real Estate was wonderful.
Thank you for giving us your input about Flickinger and for the compliment to Litchfield Real Estate! Beach houses are much like us - after a long, hot summer they could use a little TLC! Thanks for being so understanding and we hope to see you again very soon!
It was really hot the week we were tere and the air conditioning system was not able to cool the house. It was 88 degrees inside the house with the system set to 65. We called Litchfield realty and they sent a repairman who said te system was working fine, it was just too small for the house because he house has no ceiling insulation. The pros: The ladies at litchfield realty were very nice and called the owner who sent over a new wall aC which helped. The cons: they new this was an ongoing problem since they mentioned to me at check in, not to turn on the ceiling fans as it only circulated warm air from the ceiling. Also, the kitch is very narrow.
Thank you for letting us know about your stay in Flickinger. We were aware of the concerns with the a/c because we had extraordinarily hot weather for several weeks and knew the "ins and outs" of trying to keep the house cool. We have passed along your concern to the owner. We do hope to see you in the future - maybe when the weather is a bit more "normal"!
Every year our family looks forward to our week at Pawleys Island. We have stayed in Flickinger two years in a row. We love the location of the house and it's proximity to the beach and the creek. We enjoyed crabbing and canoeing in the creek. It is also a bonus that we can bring our family pet. I will say that on particularly hot days the air conditioning unit can not keep up with the heat. Cooking in that small kitchen is difficult and it tends to heat the house up as well. The tv in the living room doesn't work well (barely watchable).
Thank you for letting us know about your stay in Flickinger! We will check out the a/c to make sure it is working as it should, and will look into the problem with the tv. Thank you for letting us know! We hope to see you again next year for a third year!
Great yesteryear Pawleys beach cottage. Loved the full screened in porch with plenty of rocking chairs. Well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. Could use a second couch though. It's an old beach house so the inside will be very warm during the the afternoon but will cool down over night. Thank you for letting us bring our dogs...it made our trip. Great staff at Litchfield Real Estate too.
Thank you for telling us about your stay in Flickinger! We will pass along to the owner your suggestion about the second sofa. We will also check on the a/c to make sure it is working correctly. We're glad you could bring your "four-legged family members" and thank you for acknowledging our staff! Come back to see us again!
Flickenger Cottage was just perfect for my husband and I and our dog. Easy access to the beach and a nice screened porch with rocking chairs to sit out on after a great day at the beach. I feel that the only problem was the kitchen. It is very narrow and two people cannot work in it together. I do not feel that two couples with kids could be comfortable in that space. Other than that, it was a great cottage.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Flickinger! It is a relaxing beach cottage just a hop-skip-jump to the beach! Come back to see us very soon!
The location was really good with a very short walk to a marvelous beach. The view from the porch wasn't as good as we expected. The house was very well equipped and clean. The bathrooms were small with showers, but no bath tub. The rental price was reasonable. There were a number of good restaurants nearby and Brookgreen Gardens rated two visits. Golf and tennis are very convenient as well. Overall, it was a very nice vacation.
Sounds like you had a great time in Flickinger and in our lovely area! Please come back again very soon!
1. Close to beach - yes
2. Good Value - yes
3. Hvac - Needs to be redone; heat pump could not cool below 80 degrees.
4. Yard Maitenance crew - annoying while staying there
5. Need working outside lights in parking area and steps
Thanks for sharing about your stay in the Flickinger house. We'll pass along to the owner your suggestion about the a/c. Unfortunately, because this house is occupied so much, the yard crew has to come at times when someone is there. Sorry if this was annoying! We'll take a look at the lighting concerns. We hope to see you again soon!
Flickenger was perfect for our family! Having bedrooms on different sides of the great room gave everyone an opportunity to have their own spaces but still all be together. Everything we needed was provided. Even though we couldn't see the beach (less than 100 steps away), we enjoyed the sound of the ocean from the screened porch. It was wonderful! My children are ready to return asap.
Come back soon! Flickinger's location is wonderful and it is a relaxing house to enjoy the beach! Thank you for your review!
The convenience of being just a two minute walk to the beach was the biggest factor in us selecting this location. There were four of us, two adults and two grown children which served our needs well. The accommodations were fine. Really the only comment I have for improvement is having more comfortable seating in the living room area. There was one couch and if someone wanted to stretch out everyone else had to sit in chairs that were not very comfortable. Having a second couch would have made the
stay more enjoyable.
Flickinger is all about convenient beach access! We will pass along your suggestion about some extra comfy chairs or a sofa. Thank you for your review and come back to Pawleys Island very soon!
This 3BR, 2 Ba house was the perfect size for our family. Nice, short walk to the beach. Loved the screened porch with all the rocking chairs. W/D was extremely convenient. Kids (teenagers) appreciated the WiFi. Very friendly check-in/check-out. Only bad experience was packing to leave :(
We'll be back!
And we'll look forward to seeing you! Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in the Flickinger cottage! Better watch out - that hating to leave is what causes many to catch "Pawleys Island fever" and they end up coming more and more or even moving here! See you and your family soon!
Flickinger was adequate. The kitchen in small. There was no outdoor hose, shower or grill. There is no view. Access to the beach is fairly convenient. The beach area was good.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay in Flickinger. We are sorry it wasn't what you expected. However, we feel it is just what we describe - "Nested in the heart of a classic Low Country island setting, Flickinger recalls the cozy simplicity of a time gone by." We will mention to the owner about the grill and hose, and although there isn't a view, you are on the beach in about a minute! Flickinger is a simple, three bedroom beach cottage with amazing beach access....
My husband and I joined his cousin and her husband (and their 2 children), for a few days at Pawley's Island recently. We stayed at Flickinger which is located just to the right of the north causeway ...
a great location! Even though the house is not on the oceanfront, it's on the ocean side of the road.
Everyone agreed the convenient location was reason enough to rent this house! The house has a really
nice porch with lots of comfortable rocking chairs.
Inside, there's a spacious, attractive living area.
There's one bedroom and bath on the right and then
two bedrooms (shared bath in between) on the left.
The kitchen is rather small, but it has everything
you need - large refrigerator and stove - there is
even a dishwasher. The washer/dryer are there too.
The Flickinger house had everything we needed, and
we all said we would stay there again! The ease of
being just steps away from the beach makes this an
ideal choice for a family vacation. Also ... it's
pet friendly, and our little Jack Russell Terrier,
Brie, really enjoyed the nice porch space as well.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your vacation in Flickinger! It is in a fabulous location on Pawleys Island, and is the perfect beach cottage for a relaxing getaway! We are so glad you brought your "four-legged" family member to the beach! Many of our vacation homes are pet-friendly and we're happy Brie could join you! All of you come back to see us again soon!
This beach bungalow was very good! It was easy to get to the property from the main road, and easy to walk down to the beach (less than 5 minutes). There were three of us and we each got our own bedroom. With two full bathrooms there were no problems feeling that we had space.
The Wi-Fi was great (although the property needs a couple more 3 prong adapters). We enjoyed the chairs on the screened in porch in the early morning and at night.
I would definately recommend this property for anyone that wants a more sedate experience than Myrtle Beach. The beach had very few people on it which added to the wonderful solitude feel. The beach and water had little debris. If you are looking for something out of the way, calm, etc. then this place is for you!
A couple of things that need to be fixed...the bathroom toilet runs a bit and we had to take the top off to adjust it a few times. In one of the bedrooms a wall plug needs to be replaced. BUT...other than that it was a wonderful place to be!
Thank you for your review of Flickinger. It is a great spot for a relaxing beach vacation! We're glad you used the Wi-Fi... many of our owners have added it to their properties. We do have a fabulous beach here in the Pawleys Island/Litchfield Beach area, and are happy you could appreciate it! We'll take care of the couple of things you mentioned...Thanks for letting us know. Hope to see you again....soon!
We enjoyed staying in this house. The only issue was the air condition unit maintaining temperature setting during peak afternoon hours of 90+ degree weather. The Litchfield Real Estate staff was very proactive to address the issue and followed up during the week to see how we were enjoying our stay. The house is conveniently located near the beach, very short walk.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay in Flickinger! The location of the house is wonderful, and it truly captures the essence of Pawleys Island. A small downside of these "Pawleys houses" is they weren't built with a/c in mind...so sometimes on really hot days the a/c just can't keep up! However, aren't we lucky to have that sea breeze that seems to provide our own natural a/c! Thanks for the "pat on the back" to our staff! We really work at making sure our guests have a great vacation! Please come visit us again...soon!
Flickinger is a perfect traditional Pawleys home, with a lovely south-facing screened porch that catches either offshore or onshore breezes, wood paneling and floors, outdoor light fixtures on the bedroom walls (!).
The kitchen is a galley kitchen, with the washer and dryer in it, too, so it's a challenge if more than one is cooking. The living space is central, the bedrooms comfortable. One bath is between the double and two twin bedrooms, and the other bath/ queen bedroom can be closed off from the living area.
A perfect retreat for a close-knit or small family. Old-fashioned Pawleys at its best.
About five houses from the beach just south of the north causeway, across the road from the creek.
Dog-friendly house -- leash law is strictly enforced -- keep plastic bags handy!
Thank you for taking the time to let us know your experience staying in Flickinger! You're right - it is the epitome of the Pawleys Island beach cottage! We are so happy you appreciated all it has to offer and your "four-legged family member" was able to enjoy it with you! You're right...the leash laws are strictly enforced in our area! Come back and see us again very soon!
We absolutely LOVED Flickinger. The house was spacious, nicely furnished and provided ample privacy for everyone staying with us. The location was so nice. The walk was quick and the privacy of the home as compared to other beach destinations was unparalleled. We absolutely loved our time on Pawley's staying at Flickinger. We have rented other beach houses on the island but this was my favorite by far. My only complaint was that there was no bathtub to bathe small kids in. My 9 month old fit nicely in the sink but my older son had to quickly figure out how to take a shower which he wasn't too thrilled about. Otherwise, there was absolutely nothing that we didn't enjoy about the house.
Thank you for sharing your experience in Flickinger on Pawleys Island! You're right - that home has a fantastic location! Pawleys Island is a very special spot for a family vacation, and we're happy your family discovered that! Please come see us again...soon!
My family and I had visited Pawley's Island previously and were searching for a modest home for a week's vacation. We found Litchfield Realty and Flickinger on line. Descriptions were clear and accurate, rates were posted and most reasonable, and the staff at Litchfield was wonderful. (I particularly liked the fudge at the Saturday morning check-in.)
We hope to return in the future.
Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your stay in Flickinger. We're glad you like the fudge...that's just one of the many extras our guests enjoy! Please come back and see us - soon!!
