We stayed at the property from July 2-4, 2016. Everything was absolutely beautiful! There was plenty of room for my family of 6 (all 4 kids had their own bed!) Mary made sure we had everything we needed. I even got to eat breakfast out back in the morning. I don't even get to do that at my own home. The best way I can describe it is as if a family member told me they were going to be away for the weekend and I could stay at their house. The one thing I will tell you is that the neighborhood is extremely dark at night, so just remember your turns and you will find the condo easily. This was my first time using VRBO and the check in/out was extremely easy. She has really set the standard for my family and I. We have decided that hotels are a thing of the past for us. Thanks for truly making us feel at home. We will definitely try to stay here the next time we come to the Pawley's Island area.

Great Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what we needed. My wife and I wanted a beach vacation for our 10 year anniversary but we also wanted plenty of space for our 11 month old. We loved every minute of this trip. The cottage looked like the pictures. I noticed right away that each electrical had safety covers in the plugs. Everything was very clean and well kept. Huntington Beach State Park was about 3 miles away, as was Brookgreen Gardens. We would love to stay here again just for the proximity to those two awesome places. We also spent plenty of time at Surfside Beach. The hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach was about half and hour away, or in other words, close enough to go and play but nice to come back to a quiet resort. The pool was delightful and our little girl could splash in the kiddie pool as she pleased. I can't say enough about the beauty of the drive onto the property. Would we stay here again? In a minute.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

Never having been to South Carolina, we had no idea what to expect of the scenery or the cottage that we had rented for the week. As soon as we passed the security guard at the front, we were greeted by perfectly manicured lawns, huge, twisting oaks covered with ivy and Spanish moss, charming duplexes with picket fences, purple hydrangeas, and squirrels chasing each other across the tree limbs. It was exactly what we needed: the opposite of loud hotels with screaming kids and drunk college students. This was where we belonged.

I was not keen on sharing a duplex with a stranger, but we hardly noticed they were there (just one night of a few banging screen doors). Not being right on the beach meant no sand on the floor or the sheets or the tub, and that was good. The pool was large and vacant, and we enjoyed one evening swimming in it under the stars.

There was a kitchen, but we dined out for our meals, so we did not use it. Bathrooms were good-sized, and the unit was nice and cool upon our arrival. It was just the perfect size for a couple and our son. I also always enjoy the feel of carpet instead of hard floors, and I imagine it was less noisy for neighbors as well. If we had only judged Myrtle Beach by the coastline, we never would have known how beautiful these grounds were--pine mixed with palm tree, every detail covered. If you are the kind of people who like peace, not the bawdy rowdy kind who like to draw attention to yourselves--do yourself a favor and enjoy this cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I'm so glad that you saw the beauty of Wachesaw the same as we do. Our cottage is close enough to all the great things to do but far enough away that you have the peace and quiet and privacy that some need when they are vacationing. We hope to see you back in the future.

Welcome to the historic fishing village of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, a quaint, little town full of history, beauty & colorful characters. Tucked away just 10 miles south of the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet is a nature lover's paradise.

Here, you won't find flashing neon signs or roller coasters. In Murrells Inlet, you enter the quaint feel of a true fishing village, unspoiled by concrete and high rises. It's a place sought out by fisherman and naturists, whispered about by antique collectors, and revered by art lovers and horticulturists. It's the place where golfers come to relax, families come to dine and snowbirds come to retire.

Wachesaw Plantation is a private residential community were residents and guests enjoy long walks or riding bicycles along the quiet, paved streets. During your stay, our guests have access to the private Country Club pool complex and snack cabana. Also, enjoy a fine dining experience for lunch or dinner at the exclusive Kimbels restaurant with breathtaking views of the Intercoastal Waterway.

During your stay we recommend a visit to the Marsh Walk... there is so much to do there and fresh seafood markets of the daily catch. The Lazy Gator Gift Shop is a good place to shop.

We happened upon a wonderful restaurant the other day in Garden City Beach a few miles from the cottage... Gulf Stream Café.

Notes:
We're 1-2 miles to area beaches, shopping and local restaurants to suit any taste and budget. While staying in our cottage enjoy the privileges of the swimming pool complex with children’s pool area and hot tub to the world-class Tom Fazio golf course and tennis facility to the privacy and serenity of Kimbels Restaurant over-looking the masterpiece 18th. At every turn, the Lowcountry landscape takes center stage. Undulating greens, grassy bunkers and love-grass knolls establish a character Fazio himself dubbed “the Wachesaw look.” The eighteenth hole—high atop a bluff overlooking the slow-moving waters of the Waccamaw—is frequently recognized as one of the most dramatic holes on the entire East Coast.
