About Nancy Kreml
Mace House is owned by Nancy Mace Kreml, Jane Mace Davis, and John Davis. Nancy and Jane are retired teachers: Jane taught math at Irmo High School and Nancy taught English at Midlands Technical College, both in Columbia. John Davis edited South Carolina Wildlife magazine, and now paints wonderful wildlife scenes. Jane and John also have a house near Brevard, NC, and Nancy (and her husband Bill) have an apartment in Chicago--but we all live in Columbia much of the year with cats, dogs, and other tame and not so tame animals!
Nancy Kreml purchased this House in 1972
Why Nancy Kreml chose Pawleys Island
Our parents, Mary and Parke Mace, built the house in 1972, and our family has enjoyed it ever since. The marsh is the true heart of all our memories, and we're so happy every spring when the first warm evening lets us take cold drinks out to watch the sunset. Our parents and grandparents spent summers at Pawley's, and now our children and (future)grandchildren do, too. Pawley's offers beautiful beaches and marshes, fascinating history, great golf courses, excellent fishing and crabbing, and easy access to Georgetown, Murrell's Inlet, and Charleston, as well as the Francis Marion National Forest.
What makes this House unique
We've always thought that paradise is in the marsh at Pawley's. When we're there, you'll always find us on the dock at sunset, eating supper on the porch, or curled up to read by the fire if the evening is cool. We always like to take a trip to Brookgreen or a nature tour at Hobcaw, eat out or buy fresh-caught seafood and cook it ourselves, play games or watch a movie, and best of all, kayak in the marsh to see egrets, herons, ibis, eagles and other wonderful creatures. And every summer, we swim in the perfect surf on Pawley's beach!

Great Marsh Dock and Easy Access to the Beach
Enjoyed every bit of our stay and the dogs had a blast. House was great and had everything we needed. Nice and quiet location, but close enough to the action too. Whether kayaking at high tide or hitting the beach, we had a great stay at the Mace House. Enjoyed a day at Georgetown and other days at Huntington Beach and Brookgreen Gardens. Really hated to leave.
We're so glad you liked Mace House! And also that you enjoyed all the local places like Georgetown. One of the great things about Mace House is how close it is to beautiful natural and historical sites. Please come back!
We love this property and the house because it reminds us of the way the beach used to be. We continue to return as often as possible.
So glad you love our traditional Pawley's house, with its big porch and dock and quiet place on the creek! Please do come back soon.
Wonderful house in an awesome location.
We're so glad you liked being on the marsh and near the water! Hope you'll come back soon.
Salt marsh fun
My family had a wonderful time staying here. The secluded atmosphere on the salt marsh was exactly what we were hoping for. We enjoyed kayaking, catching crabs, and wildlife watching. The sun rises were awsome. The homey feel of a family beech house was very relaxing. I would definitely stay here again.
You sure found the best parts of this place! Glad you got to do some crabbing and that you get out in kayaks, and especially glad you saw lots of wildlife! Please come back soon.
Just what the doctor ordered
This is an absolutely stunning house. Waking up in the morning with a view of the marsh, kayaking in the creeks and anchoring on the beach is wonderful. The house itself is very comfortable and is a great place to make and enjoy meals. Spent a lot of time on the screened-in porch!
We're so glad you found all the great things to do here! Sitting on the screened porch is a great way to be in nature without also being in bugs, and kayaking the creek and being on the beach are always wonderful. Hope you'll come back soon! Thanks for staying in touch.
Our family vacation
We loved the Mace House. The Marsh views from the screened in porch and the dock are fabulous. We also loved the low
Country paintings in side the house. One of my daughters lives in Pawleys Island and they just loved the house.
We're so glad you had a good time at Mace House, sitting on the porch to see the tides and the birds of the marsh. And we're also glad you liked the paintings by John Davis, one of the owners. Please come back soon!
