Pawleys Island

Hotels in Pawleys Island

This informal antebellum beach house sits just south of Myrtle Beach. All nine of the simple rooms have ceiling fans and screened windows to make the most of the salty sea breeze (there is air-conditioning, too). The Southern-style breakfast includes biscuits, grits, and crab salad.

The 25 pine-paneled rooms are beach-rental basic: think patchwork quilts, ceiling fans, and half-baths (caveat: you’ll be sharing the showers, which are scattered throughout the property).
