Just spent a 3-day history retreat with local historian Lee Brockington at the Sea View Inn with 13 other women. 3 FULL meals a day prepared and cooked by Gullah women. True southern cooking. BYO adult drinks! And a true step back in time. No television, no AC or heat - just ocean breezes; no computers, requests to not use cell phones in public areas...Right on the ocean from the front porch lined with rocking chairs, and along the creek and marsh on the back with your own private dock. If you want to truly get away to what it used to be like, and to be able to totally decompress and just commune with the tides and essence of nature, this is the place for you!
Thank rance5068

This is a perfect hide away from urban Life, back to sources as no mobile phone and internet except in a small corner, family orientated and wonderful social interaction where everyone share the longe to play, talk or Read.
and the View and direct exit on the Beach is unbelievable.
Been before February 2017 but never mind, I am ure it is still the same and would love to go back

I was fortunate to spend time every summer on Pawleys in the 1960s and early 1970s; it is a magical place. The Sea View preserves the old-time magic: no air conditioning (so be forewarned for July and August), no TV, no cell phones (great idea), and very limited WiFi. But if you want to enjoy rooms with the only ocean view on the island, a quiet slow pace, and three very good meals a day, the Sea View is perfect--the closest thing you can get to the experiences of Pawleys 50+ years ago. The food--described as Low Country and Gullah "influenced"--was quite good, but would benefit from more attention to fresh ingredients. Local crab and shrimp are available, but were not actually part of the menu. Nonetheless, the three meals a day were a good representation of the area's cuisine. We will definitely be back.
Thank Charles S

Love this place. One problem is no AC but lots of fans. Some folks have come annually for generations. Food good and pretty standard. No bar but allows BYOB. Has an art week and other special times. There are some added taxes and gratuity. You need to book long in advance. Not into electronics but has outlets to recharge. Conversation or solitude. Beach umbrellas supplied. If you want fancy go elsewhere, but if you want rustic try this Inn.

I really liked being here, I thought the place was definitely unique and quaint. I liked that it was right on the beach. The guests were friendly and so wasn't most of the staff. Miss Frances on the other hand was a little hard to take at first, but warmed up to us eventually. Miss Frances was the host with the mostest...LOL
The food was great and Kip was very helpful and nice. I have to agree with others that have 6, yes 6 sales taxes attached to the bill - one of which was doubled. The other thing is with what they charge per night $300 there could be a few upgrades in the place - like those front stairs to the street. Go you will love it - no tv's, electronics - its great to just get away from everyone and everything....

There is cell phone service. I wouldn't think that it is prohibited.

You would have to call Seaview about locking your room, but I have never heard of this before. Average temps would be 60s to 70s for October and November. You would have to check their website or call them for dietary... More
