I love Litchfield Beach. It is a great beach destination while avoiding the busy, touristy beaches. Great location to relax and just enjoy the ocean without the mob.

If you want to get away from the ordinary hoopla of myrtle beach you have to try Pawleys island, great location with pools and beach all within walking distance and theres a Starbucks on site.

Between Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach, Litchfield is a quieter beach with plenty of public Access points. There are many vacation rentals and a few hotels in the area. Huntington Beach State Park is nearby, with camping, art exhibits and excellent birding opportunities. The beach...More

We rented a house a block from the beach & spent most of our days and evenings there. It was a popular beach, but enjoyable. The smart people brought a shade tent and lived under it most of the day.

My wife and I took our annual mini vacation in February. The weather wasn't the best, but we still were able to walk on the beach. Ate at some great restaurants in Murrells Inlet. Did some shopping. Mainly just rested and relaxed.

There are several companies that rent John Boats, Golf Carts, Bikes etc. Look on this site for services in the Pawleys Island Litchfield area. Thats what I did and it worked out fine.

Litchfield Beach in January or February? (3 Replies)
I would love to spend a month on coastal South Carolina next winter. What is it like at Litchfield Beach during Jan. - Feb.? Realistically want to know what to expect as far as weather, restaurants, are pools open and if so heated? Are there many "snow birds"? I have been to Florida in the Winter and it is so crowded - wondering if I pick a more obscure place, albeit a bit north, what it would be like? Thanks!

condo or home rental by the night? (9 Replies)
Does anyone know whether anywhere in Pawley's Island or Litchfield Beach rents condos or houses by the night? My husband, son, and I are hoping to go in August for 3-4 nights for my birthday. I am afraid that all rentals will be weekly, since it is high season. But we need 2 bedrooms and a kitchen since my son is a baby. Any suggestions? Thanks!

We have vacationed in the area for thirty years. Most of the rentals during the summer season will be weekly because the companies are going to try to maximize the income for their clients. They probably won't commit to a nightly rental at this time, but if you call the real estate companies during the week before you want to go, some will negotiate a nightly rental. After the middle of August, the rates go down, and you may be surprised how reasonably you can rent a place for the whole...More
7 familes, 2 houses, North Forest Beach area. Suggestions? (1 Replies)
We are a group of 7 families who spend spring break together each year. This year we were in North Litchfield Beach (which was great!) and are looking at Hilton Head for next year (first week in April 2013). None of us have been to HHI before. I think the North Forest Beach area looks like the best fit for our diverse group. We need good beach access, bike paths, walking to pubs/ice cream, and the beach volleyball/tiki bar looks great. Since I don't know the area I am trying to find...More

Given your needs, I would recommend you contact a management company, rather than trying to surf the internet. There are so many companies here on the island. Here are just a few: resort rentals, Hilton Head rentals and Golf, Vacation Company, Island getaway, Goode vacation rentals. Each do have a website where you can peruse the listings, but you may want to call directly as they know their inventory well and can probably find you houses closer to each other with greater ease. And, it is...More
