About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Welcome to Sea Oaks Retreat, our vacation getaway in sea side Pawleys Island, SC! Sea Oaks Retreat is a very private home, close to the beach and a step or so away from the Litchfield golf club, Pawleys Islands original recreational golf resort enclave with beaches near by, tennis, a driving range, superior golf and club restaurant at your disposal.

The landscape of this single family estate is adorned with old live oak trees providing dappled light for cool outside activities and from which we derived our name. Ocean swimming and sunning on the beach are just a short 3 minute drive across 17 or just jump into our private heated pool and spa.

Our retreat sports gracious Charleston architecture and design, spacious entertaining areas including 3 living rooms, bright terraces overlooking lawns and gardens, a private pool and spa. The rear garden/lawn over looking the distant fairway, is fenced so your four footed loved ones can run to his or her hearts content.

So bring the family, bring your dogs, bring your Mother-in-law to Sea Oaks Retreat as vacations are just not complete without them...or not! Mother-in-laws...thats your problem.

This gracious two story pastel painted brick Charleston style designed home, with an entrance opening into a two story circular staired foyer entrance. The stairs lead to the 2nd floor with 3 oversized bedrooms, each with sitting areas and two with an adjoining separate Nursery/Office/Dressing Room. The first floor master suite includes a sitting area, its own large spa tub and a walk-in closet. There are 3.5 baths in all, 4100 sq ft of 3 zoned, temperature controlled living space, situated on a maturely planted, private one acre site, with a oversized 2 car garage, comfortable off street parking, abundant, sunfilled terraces, 1.0 acre of mature fenced in lawns and garden areas.

To the rear of the home is situated a gorgeous saline heated pool and spa, private terraces for sunning and entertaining, a grand 24 x 34 foot vaulted ceiling, sun filled, well appointed solarium with dry bar, fireplace, widescreen video, and surround sound audio which is available in many rooms including the adjoining terrace.

About Jonathan Schmitz

We are interior decorators from CT who have enjoyed, over the years, renovating and furnishing distinctive homes from CT to NH and SC. We have gained great pleasure and gratitude knowing folks have enjoyed staying our our homes and found rest and rejuvenation.

Jonathan Schmitz purchased this house in 2009

Why Jonathan Schmitz chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Sea Oaks Retreat presented itself as a good balance between, having a home near the sea, a large private setting(the largest property in the Litchfield Country Club Area), a spacious layout for entertaining yet large bedroom suites to retreat to for quiet time.

What makes this house unique

As can be seen in the photos here and at our website, www.seaoaksretreat.com, both the architecture, finishes and details of our home creates an atmosphere which is both engaging and slightly exotic, yet comfortable and calming. One has the sea, golf, fine restaurants, sports and supply purveyors near by yet the scale and privacy of a property that sets the stage for entertaining, having guests and creating great memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jonathan,



I will try to express how much we enjoyed your vacation home, but words will fail.



From first impressions to last, there is nothing but good things to say.  The paintings of the walls and also on the paintings hung on the walls are wonderful to look at and also very relaxing.  The gas fireplace in the solarium was our favorite place since it did get a bit chilly a couple of mornings and it was a great place to drink your first cup of coffee and watch the birds and squirrels in the back yard and have a couple moments of quite time before the day got started.   Elvis the cat liked the windows in the solarium since he could keep a close eye on what was going on out back and make sure that the bird and squirrels weren't having too much fun with out him.



The new double oven and gas range got a work out that week.   I cooked thanksgiving for what ended up being 12 people and the new appliances worked wonderfully.



The layout of the house is great for having groups of people or family over, since everyone does not have to be stuffed into one room and there is room to spread out.  We had some kids outside playing, the front and back yards were great, we had some in one room with their games while the adults were in another room solving all the worlds problems and I was in the kitchen cooking for what felt like masses of people.



When everyone left and we were able to relax, we did take advantage of the hot tub outside, which was very nice with a glass of wine and the stars.    And the beds were very comfortable and helped us recover from entertaining.



We have stayed in many vacation homes in many areas and also many in the Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas, but this is one of the nicest and most comfortable homes we have stayed in.  We will be back to stay again !!!



Thank you for allowing us the privilege of staying in you fabulous home.
