Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 26, 2016
House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

This ocean front beach home is a true classic. The wrap around porch is so inviting that many don't stray far away from it. It has 8 rocking chairs, a Pawley's Island hammock, and a table and chairs that are perfect for a little breakfast or many other uses. The beach is only steps away so that you can walk, play, swim or sun any time of the day.

If you do happen to get a bit sandy, there are two porch showers out back to use before you get into the house, right beside the washer, dryer, and extra refrigerator.

The spacious living area with sofas and large dining table allows plenty of room for watching the big screen TV, playing games or puzzles, just relaxing, or, of course, dining.

The bedrooms are configured as follows:

There is a Master bedroom downstairs with a Queen bed and private bath, and five bedrooms upstairs with another bath. The third bath is in the hallway downstairs.

Upstairs, there are two ocean-front bedrooms. One has a queen size bed in it. The other has a double and a twin.

Next to the queen is an attached room that has two twins.

Next to that is an attached room that has a queen.

Across the hall (next to the double and twin ocean-front, but not attached), is a room that has two doubles in it.

Then behind that room is the bathroom.

As I mentioned earlier, there are two porch showers, and that is also where the washer and dryer and a second refrigerator are.

There are also some beach chairs, etc. out there.

The kitchen is fully equipped from coffee pot to utensils.

We also have a notebook on a shelf near the dining table with different restaurant menus of some of our favorites if you may not feel like cooking:).

Relax with the tranquility of the ocean while you rock on the porch, and watch the sunset turn into a glory of stars or see a beautiful sunrise while in the hammock or a rocking chair. Either way, your troubles will be washed away at our home away from home.

Enjoy!

Libby

About the Owner

Hi, my name is Libby, and my sister, Nell, and I own this home which has been in our family since 1962. I have been married since 1980, have two grown children, one granddaughter, and two dogs. I mostly do volunteer work these days... delivering Meals on Wheels, tutoring kids at a community center, and working with senior citizens at the same center. I love my volunteer work - I get so much back in personal rewards than I could possibly give.

Family bonding time

  • 5 of 5

My family has been to this house for the past two summers and enjoyed it immensely. You can not choose a better location as far as beach privacy and access to all MB and the surrounding area has to offer. The porch is absolutely fantastic and we chose to enjoy as much time as possible out there from morning coffee to evening games. Walking right out onto the beach is wonderful and the lawn also allows for lawn games. Each of our adult children can have their own bedroom and the livingroom with its Smart TV allowed for family time in the evenings as well. Stores are also very convenient and can easily be walked to as well. Overall a fantastic trip- short from having a pool it is an ideal vacation spot- but the ocean is right there. Having the keys mailed ahead of time saves that stop to a broker after a long trip as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Debbie! Our home is the perfect place for a family get together. And with the new Smart TV you are able to sign on to your own Netflix, Amazon, whatever account and use it. The ocean is just outside the back door, and restaurants, putt-putt, shopping, and even golf is just minutes away. But my favorite place of all is still in a rocker on the porch... Or the hammock...

Love this place.

We have been going to this house for 22 years. Wonderful location. New great mattresses. Slept so good. We just wish there was another bathroom upstairs but we have learned to manage. The owners are very nice people too. Love this place !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Martha Lee! This home was built in the 30's when bathrooms weren't as popular as they are now. It has been in our family since 1962 when our grandfather bought it mainly because of the wonderful porch. We have added many improvements over the years including central air conditioning...

Wonderful option for a girls' weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 13 girlfriends get together for a fun weekend at the beach -- this house exceeded our expectations! It is perfect for a large group as the common areas are very open and able to accommodate everyone. We loved that the upstairs bedrooms were all connected and had so many bed options! The porch was the best part, and you can't beat the fact that the house is beachfront. Although it is adjacent to a public beach access, it felt very private.

The only downside is that you need to plan to bring essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, etc. etc...not a big deal just something to plan for.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Beth. It is a wonderful getaway for all types of groups. Please note, however, that there is some toilet paper, paper towels and such provided for the beginning of each stay, but not for the entire trip. We are so glad that you had a wonderful time at the beach, on the porch, and with your friends! Libby

We've spent a wonderful week at this great house. We were three families with all together 10 children - Ages 16 down to 4. We all had a great time! The ladies enjoyed reading a book on the porch with the ocean wind in their hair. The Kids played corn bag on the nicely kept lawn, they were able to go to the beach whenever, eat whenever, rest whenever. The big Boys enjoyed lots of M.B. entertainment such as deep sea fishing, shooting range, fine Foods. In the evenings the front porch turned into a theater: watching thunderstorms roar over the ocean from the secure shelter was one of my personal favorites of the week.

This house reminded me much of my Grandma’s place – because it was decorated with love but still in a practical way. We found everything we needed. Basically we just felt like home away from home!

We definitely hope to go there once again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! How very well said that is. Those are just some of the very things I love most about the beach myself. I especially love spending time in a rocker on the porch.

Alabama/Tennessee gang

May, 2014, another great week at Myrtle Beach. This is our 12th straight year but we are still considered rookies as time goes. Our friends that we meet each year have been coming to Libby's for 25 plus years.

In the mornings our group of fourteen seniors arise over a period of approximately two to three hours and migrate to the rockers on the front porch with coffee in hand. Us early birds get the worm, or I should say, the most beautiful orange sun rise on the east coast. The ocean is at its smoothest, the sun's rays turn to diamonds, and this is usually the time of the day that you can see the dolphins playing just beyond the breakers on the beach. The breeze coming off the ocean is gentle and cool, the sand is cool, and it's the perfect time for that hand-in-hand, reminiscent barefoot walk down the beach.

In addition to the rockers, the front porch also has a permanent hammock plus our group brings four other hammocks. Throughout the day people love to lie in the hammocks and read. Although, I have never understood how a person reads a book with it lying open on their chest and with their eyes closed. I guess it's just one of those things you can do at the beach.

This is still May and already looking forward to next year.......

Owner's Response: Yes, you captured it all! The glorious sunrise, the beautiful dolphins, and, of course my favorite of all, the rockers on the wonderful porch! I agree - I always take a book and never seem to turn very many pages for watching the dolphins and beach combiners. I am so glad that you enjoyed it as your own. We welcome you back again!

Our family had the pleasure of staying here at the Golden Mile. What a treat .... The home away from home met all our needs plus ! We all especially enjoyed the beautiful porch over looking the ocean. We each claimed our rocking chairs, and I for one could be found in mine while having my early morning coffee watching the dolphins perform "just for me" steps away in the ocean. We got to celebrate our son's 40th birthday while there. How lovely it was to have our lasagna dinner around the big dining table there. We found the location to be perfect for all the many restaurants and attractions. On our 2nd day there, the kids were asking if we were going to do it again next year! Yes, we are in fact, and I for one can't wait! Thanks Libby for sharing your lovely home and letting it be ours for a week. We had a blast, and summer 2013 can't get here fast enough!

Owner's Response: Yes, my favorite place at our beach home - other than walking on the beach - is in my special rocking chair. I just love to take an ice cold lemonade and a good book, and then I enjoy watching the beachcombers and the dolphins and sea gulls. And the large dining room table is not only perfect for eating, but also great for games and puzzles. Don't forget the big screen TV! So glad y'all had a great time!

Location

From the Owner

My sister and I grew up going to this wonderful house since we were knee-high. Our grandfather left it to us and we have been taking care of it ever since. It is truly a unique home with a true Southern style and open living area. And, of course, the porch has always been my favorite place to be, as I choose a rocking chair, some cold lemonade, and a good book. Sometimes the book gets ignored because of the beauty of the ocean, the sea gulls, and the possible dolphins!

Amenities

From the Owner

Our home is located in the middle of an area known as "The Golden Mile" which is strictly residential single family homes. Therefore, it tends to be more quiet and less crowded than the condo or hotel areas. Due to respect for our neighbors, we do not allow motorcycles on our property. I particularly love the porch with the rocking chairs. I take a book and enjoy reading and watching the ocean and the people. It is so peaceful and calming there. Since we prefer not to cook too much while we are there (although we do have all of the equipment, etc.), we have our favorite restaurants where we like to go. We thought you might like to have some ideas as to where to go, so we put together a book with menus from some of our favorites. This is located on a shelf by the dining table.
