About the Owner

Lou Self and Bee Jones are sisters who have enjoyed family vacations at Pawley's Island for over 50 years. We are fortunate to be able to continue to own this little cottage and offer it for use. It gives us great pleasure to share our little bit of South Carolina low country paradise.

Gray Lady at Pawleys Island
Pawleys Island Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

The most romantic week ever!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at the Gray Lady. The large rambling beach house opens it's doors to the surf and white sand of Pawley's Island. In as few as three steps we had our feet buried in the white sand. Nights were spent listening to the waves as the ocean breeze filled the large ocean front bedrooms. We loved cooking fresh seafood each night in the open kitchen, which was equipped with every kitchen tool and gadget available. We ended each day in the spacious out-door shower. Wonderful... And we hope to install one at our mountain house in NC. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful beach house. We will claim the same week next year!

What a great time we had at the GRAY LADY.

The Gray Lady gets a 'ten' on its cleanliness. The organized kitchen had everything that we needed for cooking all of our meals. We would highly recommend this property to all families looking for a spot to enjoy each other AND the beach. 'Beach walking' is ideal!!!!!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Myrtle Beach Airport at 20 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 17 at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Litchfield Beach at 5 Miles Car: necessary

Very wide beach area in front of house at low tide - good for games or just sitting in the sun. Wading and crabbing in the creek. Great bird watching - look for bald eagle in top of highest tree across the tidal marsh. Surf and creek fishing. Area abounds with terrific golf venues available to the public. Unique shopping and some awfully good dining. Visit historic Georgetown (13 miles south) or the attractions of Myrtle Beach (25 miles north). Art patrons should not miss Brookgreen Gardens. Nature abounds: see the alligators at Huntington Beach Park, visit the Belle Baruch nature preserve and do your own 'birding' along the beach and tidal areas. Rent kayaks for fun in the surf or creek. Take floats to the south end at incoming tide and drift down the creek with the tide to the Gray Lady dock.

From the Owner

You will not find a more clean and cared for house kept up by do it yourselfers who just want to be able to keep this special place as a loving tribute to our parents. We have a wonderful 'wall of fame' with collage photos of many years of happy times at Pawley's.
