Posted by Litchfield Real Estate | Sunday, March 8, 2020

Due to recent events surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), many may be wondering if taking a vacation this year is even possible. Packing up your vehicle and driving to the coast for a restorative beach vacation while staying at a private rental home may be the perfect solution.  

Rental homes within the Pawleys Island and Litchfield Beach area provide the additional benefit of being ensconced within a diverse coastal ecosystem providing an abundance of outdoor, fresh air experiences perfect for social distancing and getting away from daily concerns and confinements.  

Your safety and the safety of others takes primary importance. Please follow local, state and national government regulations and recommendations regarding traveling and social distancing during epidemics, pandemics, and other states of emergency.  

Updated 04/01/2020 - At this time, the public is no longer allowed to be on the beaches of Pawleys Island or Litchfield Beach or other waterways unless they have a commercial fishing license until further notice. 

The Georgetown County Council has enacted an emergency ordinance restricting Short Term Rentals taking effect starting March 28 and remains in effect until May 1. The ban applies to accommodation businesses of all types in Georgetown County. New reservations cannot be accepted for any period of time through the end of April and existing reservations must be moved to a new timeframe or cancelled. Visitors currently checked in may remain through to their departure date but such reservations may not be modified. Any rentals consistently occupied by the same occupant since March 1 are exempt, but new occupants may not join the existing occupant(s).

Social Distancing 

Vacation rentals provide a private setting with plenty of space. Pawleys Island/Litchfield Beach vacation rentals range from condos and vintage beach cottages to large vacation homes for multiple families. At Litchfield Real Estate, all rental homes reside within small, no-drive-through communities, including a couple with security guard gates. All beach rentals are either on the beach or an easy walk to the beach. Many additionally enjoy creek front or lake front locations.

The unparalleled ecological diversity of the Lowcountry coastal region of South Carolina provides abundant opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. The lazy Waccamaw River with its many tributaries leading to historic rice fields travels right by Pawleys Island and empties into the breathtaking Winyah Bay Estuary.
