Perfect Beach House
August 6, 2018
While most things in life are rarely perfect this home came very close. Our family fell in love with the beautiful decor of this comfortable and very well equipped home. The pool was just a few steps across the street and not crowded at all and the beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. We really enjoyed watching the wildlife in the lagoon directly behind the home. The owner responded to all of our questions immediately and was very pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend this home.
Lovely home. Great location

The Perfect Pawleys Island Retreat
May 18, 2018
We are frequent visitors to Pawleys Island’s Litchfield-by-the-Sea community and this was by far our favorite rental property. Recently renovated and wonderfully decorated, this private beach house made us feel right at home. Very clean, nicely appointed, and conveniently located in a gated community with a short 5-minute walking distance to the beach and to Starbucks. Highly recommend.

This charming vacation home is a perfect getaway

The rental is located a short walk or golf cart ride from the beach. The interior is like new with all you need for food preparation, parties and lounging. The decor is clean, lighthearted and happy with a fabulous large screened in patio overlooking a lush pond. The owner has a full list of recommended restaurants nearby. Also, fun things to do in and out of the community. There is something for everyone. A great place to make family memories.
Beautifully decorated renovated villa. Well managed and well located.

One of few properties with a king size bed available in Pawleys Island, this villa is part of a duplex and very private, with its own parking spaces and entrance. Tucked away from the road, the master opens onto a spacious screened porch that looks out onto woods. The furnishings appear to have been recently updated and are cheerful and clean. The kitchen is very well outfitted, which is not always the case with rentals. The owners were accessible and very responsive to our questions and needs. We had a great experience staying here!
Nice experience. We’ll be back.

Our condo was very clean and freshly updated. There is also a salt water lake that has excellent fishing. Kids will have a wonderful time fishing for the abundant pinfish. There are plenty of flounder also. There are many really nice restaurants in the area.

This property was absolutely perfect!! We went with our 3 kids- 15,14,&11 and everyone loved it. The house was beautifully furnished and appointed. The beds were super comfortable. No check in necessary- just go to gate and the entry pass was with the guard. We plan to definitely return. We have vacationed in Hilton Head for 20 years but this was even better. Owners are super easy and communication was great. Thanks for a memorable weekend and we’ll be back.
As advertised. Nicely updated pad

Brett’s place was exactly as advertised. My wife, another couple and I enjoyed our time there, especially the large screened in porch. Brett was a great communicator and answered his phone immediately when I mistakenly thought we had a problem upon arrival. All was well, would be glad to rent again. Thanks.
Labor Day Fun

We have stayed at Litchfield by the Sea several times but never at Lakeside. It was a beautiful place and there was plenty of room for our whole family. We would love to stay again in the future and we would gladly recommend this to our friends.
July 18, 2015
Have stayed at several Lakeside villas over the past few years and this one has definitely been the best. The villa was furnished very nicely with all of the necessities. Well maintained and very comfortable. We did not have any problems during our stay. Brett was very responsive to our inquiry and in providing us with all of the information needed. The Lakeside community at Litchfield is very quite and relaxing and the villa is just a short walk to the pool and marsh and short drive to the beach and parking.
July 11, 2015
This was our first time staying at this particular villa in Lakeside and really enjoyed it! We have stayed in other Lakeside properties but this was the best experience yet. Brett was great from the very beginning of inquiring about the property until the end and answered any and all of our questions promptly. The villa was clean, decorated wonderfully to enhance your relaxation and easy to still get to the beach from. Having the keyless entry was such a plus. We will definitely return! Thanks Brett for sharing your villa with us as we had a memorable family vacation!

My husband and I stayed here for a week without our children! Before our arrival Brett answered all of my questions promptly and gave us lots of information. The condo was clean, spacious, and perfectly furnished. Although we had more room than we needed for just the 2 of us, there would have been plenty of room for another couple or our kids! Access to the condo was super easy and so convenient to be completely keyless/cardless at the beach. LBTS is a beautiful and well planned beach property, perfect for walking, running, riding bikes. We loved our stay and would highly recommend staying at Brett’s condo!
Another wonderful stay
June 6, 2015
This is my second year staying here. It is so comfortable and perfectly decorated for the beach. Brett and Cheri are great to deal with. The respond quickly with any questions or concerns you may have. I highly recommend renting this villa.

Just as described
April 30, 2015
The villa was even better than we expected. We had seen photos, but they didn’t do it justice. Very welcome feel, classy and comfortable. The décor was very tasteful, loved the colors. Sitting on the porch was lovely. Although next to the access road, it was very private. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. Dealing with the owners with questions, payment, etc. was also pleasant.

This VRBO villa at Litchfield By the Sea in Pawley’s Island was all as it was described. We loved the one story layout which had about 8 to 10 steps up to the front door. Everything was very clean and in working order. The beds were comfortable, and the linens and towels were good. The furnishings were bright and beachy and as described. We enjoyed sitting around the table on the screened porch with the overhead fan lending a cool breeze – great for breakfast or just drinks! There were great TVs in the living area and both bedrooms along with a supply of games for children. We especially enjoyed using the keyless entry on the covered front porch – No keys! Having a washer and dryer available was so helpful. We enjoyed going to the beach on the resort property which was just a short drive from the villa. The resort beach deck had some tables and chairs for use. Webster’s restaurant serves a wonderful buffet breakfast! LBTS has a security guard watching cars entering and making sure only resort owners/renters are able to enter the property, and the resort property is lovely and well maintained. Bi-Lo grocery store is directly across from the resort property as well as the Egg and I. The villa is delightful, and we had a wonderful, restful vacation! We recommend it highly!
Great vacation stay
August 10, 2014
We been visiting the Pawleys Island/Litchfield area annually for over 20 years, as we have family in there. This is the first time we have stayed someplace other than with family and being familiar with the Litchfield Resort, we were looking forward to the experience. We were not disappointed. The villa was beautifully decorated and had all the comforts of home. It was a great place to come back to after a busy day at the beach or other activities. Corresponding with Brett, the owner, was easy and pleasant. The only things I would mention is the parking situation. Each villa is supposed to have two dedicated parking spaces. We only needed one ourselves, but we found some of the villa residents were taking up 3-4, including one parking a golf cart in a space, meaning we weren’t able to use our actual designated spot next to the villa. It was a minor inconvenience, but worth mentioning. This is certainly not the fault of the homeowner; I don’t think Litchfield Resort enforced the rule. The other thing we found was that we initially weren’t “allowed” in the larger pool area with the kids’ area and lazy river because we didn’t rent through Litchfield itself. We were not made aware of this when we booked. Luckily, my brother and his family did have access, so we were let in as his guests. Although I did prefer the sedate pool in the Lakeside Villa area, we did have a child who liked the other pool. Overall, I would certainly look into staying here again next year.
End of summer vacation

This condo is very clean and nice. Appeared to have been remodeled recently. Granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom were a nice touch.
Great Little Villa!
August 9, 2013
I was planning a trip for my family of 4 and found this property. When we arrived check in was a snap and our first impression of the resort was super! We had a wonderful time staying at this condo.Very clean,great decorated, well furnished and maintained. The kitchen has everything you need.We also loved the screened in porch after busy sunny day! The area is beautiful.Fantastic landscaping! Semi-private pool is just few steps away. The community is outstanding. The grounds and amenities are wonderful.Very peaceful location yet close to grocery & other attractions. Excellent grocery store (Piggly Wiggly) practically across the street. Brett, the owner, was very helpful and easy to communicate with. This is our new favorite place. We will strongly recommend this condo to all of our friends, and we hope to come back next year. P.S.We already booked it again for two weeks next summer ????
Awesome Lakeside Condo- Litchfield By the Sea
August 5, 2013
We returned home last evening after a great stay. The condo is very nice and comfortable, with all of the creature comforts of home. We had fun at the beautiful beach and pools. Thank you so much, we look forward to returning when our travels take us back to South Carolina.
Great Family Condo
July 16, 2013
We just loved the amenities at Litchfield by the Sea. Condo was beautiful & very comfortable for our family of four. The condo was very clean & looked just a the pictures appeared on the website. Brett was very quick in responding to inquiries, and very helpful. I love the entire gated community. We enjoyed the pool, taking early morning walks around the property & spending time at the beach. We would definitely recommend this property to others & hope to return with our family.
Perfect Long Weekend in Pawleys
June 12, 2013
This was our 8th year doing a girls summer beach trip and this was by the far the best location. Pawleys Island is a great little beach town and Litchfield By The Sea is a perfect “subdivison” (for lack of better words). We loved the layout and design of the duplex- it was cute, beachy, clean and plenty of room for 4 ladies. We ate most of our meals in and found everything we needed available in the kitchen. There are TVs in the bedrooms and DVRs for watching movies, a great screened porch for relaxing or having a glass of wine when you come off of the beach. A pool just steps away (both times we were there there was only one other couple). We did end up driving to the beach- it only took a few minutes and was easier for us than carrying chairs, coolers, bags, etc. But there is plenty of parking and it was easy to just leave everything in the car overnight. I do think golf carts are available for rent and bikes can be rented across the street (by Piggly Wiggly) The location is perfect- Piggly Wiggly in walking distance for groceries, fresh shrimp and boiled peanuts being sold out of a truck a few miles away and so many great restaurants to choose from within a few miles. We couldn’t have asked for a better stay for our annual girls trip. Thanks so much!
Litchfield Vacation Fun
May 24, 2013
Unit was very clean and comfortable. The owner’s did a wonderful job decorating as well. It was exactly what it looked like in the pictures. Beds, bed linens and towels were all very comfortable. The unit was also quiet. It was the perfect place to stay on our Litchfield Beach trip. We love staying in Litchfield by the Sea, the amenities in the complex are really top notch. It is also very convenient to get to restaurants and grocery stores. We also love to visit the Huntington Beach State Park and Brookgreen Gardens, which are just a couple of miles a way.
Fantastic Find on Pawleys Island
February 25, 2013
As my husband and I drove away from this Lakeside Villa at Litchfield-by-the-Sea on Pawleys Island, I couldn’t wait to share our find with anyone looking for a vacaton rental on Pawleys Island. As soon as we walked in the front door, we both started smiling:) The Villa is tastefully decorated, but not over decorated, extremely clean, the kitchen is well stocked and bedrooms are cozy and comfortable; this villa is located close to everything you would want on a beach and/or golf vacation. Brett was very helpful and friendly – putting us both at ease. We often rent from VRBO and Homeaway and have placed this villa at the top of our list. Oh and so much to do! First – the beach is a 10 minute walk with a first class beach club with rest rooms and plenty of beach chairs. The pool for the Lakeside Villa is right next door if you prefer a pool to the ocean. Starbuck’s, Webster’s Restaurant, the fitness center, indoor pool, bike rentals, Summerhouse pool with lazy river, and indoor and outdoor hot tubs are all a short walk. Second – the area is loaded with fabulous restaurants both on Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet -there are too many to mention:) Dinner and cocktails on the large screened porch is a great option. Directly across from Lbts in the shopping plaza is a Piggly Wiggly for groceries, Eggs Up Grill, liquor store, and countless other small shops. “Lovely Nails” was a nice find for a vacation pedicure and manicure. Golf courses are abundant – both on Pawleys and the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area. Frank Theatres for movies, Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington State Park are all a short drive. We can’t think of one thing we didn’t like about this villa, but our favorite things were walking on the beach, watching the sunset at Murrells Inlet, golf, biking on the beach and bike paths and feeling at home in this villa. We recommend this Villa to anyone that will treat it with the respect it deserves! We have already booked our next stay:)
