OK, I have resisted sharing this information. However, this place is magic. I've taken my family to this wonderful inn for over 25 years. We just returned from a amazing week and I'm writing this review so I don't have quite so much withdrawal. The Seaview Inn is a one of a kind. It has Lowcountry appeal at every level.... More

I can't say enough about the Sea View. It was just what I needed....'forced relaxation' with some of the most outstanding food I've experienced. Right on the beach, this has to be the most laid back setting I've experienced in a long time. Everyone there was so friendly. The staff was low country 'cool' & the food was exceptional. I... More

My fiance and I were looking for a quick weekend getaway that we could afford. We searched beach resorts up and down the Carolina coast and nothing seemed to be in our budget that was beach front. We stumbled up the Sea View Inn and decided to give it a try... it was one of the best decision we have... More

We're back from another wonderful Nature Week at Sea View Inn at Pawley's. Last Sunday in March and the week following. This year the week began on Easter Sunday - rain on the way down but a clear and sunny week following. Sea View was built almost 80 years ago and still has its 40's charm. No TV or phones... More

I have stayed at Seaview over 8 times in the last 25 years. It is the place for those who don't want commercialization, or tacky motel rooms with a huge TV set. It's for those of us who want to relax and enjoy the beach, conversation with guests or just a good book. Nothing at Seaview has changed in the... More

I stayed 6 nights a Sea View with a small group of friends. The inn is a pure delight. With the marsh out one door and the sea out the other, it is like being in a watery heaven. The staff was kind, the food was good and plentiful, and the inn is like something out of of a simpler... More

The place has a certain charm, like visiting your grandmother, if she charged you $300 plus extras per night and didn't clean her bathrooms. Unfortunately, the island's answer to beach erosion has been to construct jetties every block or so. Sad for the long-time residents, but there are better beaches to the north and south. The Sea View advertises that... More

The historic Sea View Inn at Pawleys Island, SC, is a wonderfully relaxing place to enjoy the beach whether with family, friends, or just you. If you are looking for modern amenities and lots of privacy, this is not for you. There is no air conditioning in the main inn, just sea breezes. The inn, rebuilt in the 1950's after... More

As a Pawley's veteran, I'm all for "shabby chic," but the Sea View Inn uses the term "chic" pretty loosely. The location is fantastic, but the service was awful. I reserved the room and choice not to do the meals...no problem I was told. When we arrive after multiple explanations we still weren't doing the meals, and only having our... More

If you want to unplug, this is the place. Nothing to do but eat, sleep, swim and read [from their big library of good reads]; a wonderful casual environment. Barefoot to dinner! if you like. I woke early one morning and tip-toed downstairs to sleep on the porch hammock until sunrise. Truly a retreat that feels like being at the... More
