About Anna

I've been coming to Pawleys Island ever since I was a child and have a deep connection to the area. My husband and I purchased this beach house after getting married at Brookgreen Gardens and enjoy sharing our home with both new and seasoned Pawleys Island visitors.

Anna purchased this house in 2013

Why Anna chose Pawleys Island

Perfectly placed between the beach and the creek, this home has been lovingly owned by the same family for 60 years before we purchased it in 2013. The home is a great blend of traditional Pawleys Island and modern comforts/updates. It is perfect for one or two families or up to four couples.

What makes this house unique

This home is so close to the beach you can walk right across and be on the sand in 150 steps. With long covered porches, the home is perfect for lounging on the hammock in the shade and enjoying the sea breeze while surrounded by palm trees from the large yard. It is also perfectly suited for young kids as mine are one, four and six.

We were visiting Pawley's for a wedding, and the house was the perfect fit for us. We loved the style and charm of the house - a Pawley's classic. Beach access very convenient; only a minute from the beach. The hammock on the expansive porch was the perfect spot for relaxing and listening to the waves. The owner was very attentive. Would definitely rent this home again!

New Years Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over NYE weekend at Gardenia. The home was clean and cozy and perfect for our weekend getaway. A special thanks to Anna and Crystal for finding my wife’s ring that she accidentally left behind and getting it safely back to us!

Wonderful, comfortable, well-appointed, great location, and service

  • 5 of 5

Gardenia was perfect for our time together with our adult children and significant others! The house is right across from the beach access point, easy walk to north inlet, and 100 yards from public boat ramp (we brought a canoe). The owner is very, very responsive and the house has this fantastic screened porch on the front and entire side (which faces north so it won't get hot in the summer). Bedrooms are well-appointed, good mattresses and sheets. Would recommend highly!!

Fantastic location, clean and quiet with easy beach access.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week during the 2017 solar eclipse. Gardenia was a well-kept house on a quiet corner of the island. Access to the north beach was only a few yards from the front door, and it was a short drive to the south beach. The house itself was in great shape, and it's apparent that both the property owner and previous guests have treated it with love and respect. We'll definitely be back!
