Top 5 Reasons to Visit Pawleys Island in the Winter Details


The Pawleys Island/Litchfield Beach area has a temperate climate year round making it a great place to escape the cold.

The tranquility and beauty of the Lowcountry is especially spectacular in fall and winter making it a great time to fully experience the relaxed coastal lifestyle.

Crowds are smaller on the beach as well as in the restaurants, shops and other area attractions, which also means a wider rental home selection.


Say NO to snow. Compared to weekly stays, monthly off-season stays are a bargain! Live the Coastal Lifestyle for less – a lot less.

Pawleys Island and Litchfield Beach Winter Rentals

The Lowcountry is beloved as much for its soft sandy beaches as for its pristine salt marsh creeks providing a FREE and FUN outdoor winter playground for paddlers, anglers and photographers. Visitors to the Litchfield Beach and Pawleys Island area will find a wide variety of rental cottages and condos right on the beach or within a short walk from the beach. All offer the comfort and convenience of living at home and come fully furnished and equipped with anything you could need for an extended stay.

Public boat launches are easy to find providing access to the creeks as well as to the Waccamaw River where boating enthusiasts can explore historic rice fields and quiet tributaries.  The Litchfield Beach communities offer close proximity to the popular Waccamaw Neck Bikeway. Head north to Huntington Beach State Park to discover shorebirds and wildlife inhabiting the fresh water and salt marsh estuaries or bicycle a bit farther to reach the quaint fishing village of Murrells Inlet. 

Winter Rental Information

Off-season in the Litchfield Beach and Pawleys Island area falls between October 1 and March 31. Monthly winter reservations are 30 days or longer. While monthly stays provide incredible savings, rates vary depending on which months are booked and the total length of stay. Most monthly rental agreements require rent plus electric, departure clean and refundable security deposit. Stays of 90 days or longer have the added benefit of avoiding state and local hospitality taxes – another great way to save!

Winter Snowbirds love the wide range of rental choices offered by Litchfield Real Estate, including many dog friendly homes so you can bring the whole family. Keep in mind, most have a limit of two pets and require additional rent.
