Wouldn’t it be nice to have a true home away from home? You might be dreaming about a place in which you can get away with your family or partner? It would be somewhere with salt air and beaches, great food and outdoor activities, lively nightlife, and peaceful retreats. It could be a place your kids our grandkids could play, somewhere warm enough they would not need a jacket most of the time. You could visit whenever you wanted, without worrying about booking it in advance or having to bring all of your cooking essentials. It would have your own washer and dryer, pots and pans, supplies and organization, as well as bedding and furniture. 

Is your dream of building a second house becoming a reality? Are you beginning to explore the possibility of developing a home away from home? We want to help guide you through the process and answer as many questions as possible.



There is so much to love about having a house on the coast. Whether it is in the heart of the Grand Strand or one of the many smaller towns in the coastal Carolinas, each community has its own character and charm. The beautiful Atlantic Ocean meets the white sand beaches for which our area is famous. Whether you enjoy parasailing or surfing, deep-sea or surf fishing, or a walk along a quiet beach at sunset, you can find it here. If world-class golf courses are what you want, the Myrtle Beach area has enough to keep you busy for a lifetime. From restaurants to shopping to nightlife, we really have it all. 

One thing people love about the coastal Carolinas is the weather. We have mild temperatures practically all year, yet it is typically significantly cooler than interior parts of South Carolina like Columbia. Spring and summer are warm enough to play in the ocean, but you are not stuck inside during the fall and winter. The only real downside for homeowners is the potential for tropical storms and hurricanes. Whether you live here full-time or own a vacation property in the area, we want to help keep you and your property safe. 



The coastal Carolinas is one of the most exciting places in the South for rapid growth. There is so much to love about the area that tens of thousands of people are relocating here every year. At the same time, the beautiful white sand beaches, incredible golf courses, and excellent food options are part of what attracts people to call this place home. However, the economy and job markets are as strong as ever, with excellent careers available in such an incredible area. 

Pawleys Cove is one of the most charming towns in South Carolina. Founded in the 18th century, it has a rich history and bright future. The community is quiet and peaceful but still close enough to Myrtle Beach and Georgetown to enjoy modern urban amenities. Locals like to refer to the town as "elegant and shabby" for its classy setting and laid-back culture. Realstar Homes is proud to provide a neighborhood to match the shabby elegance of Pawleys Island.

In this article, we are shining the spotlight on Pawleys Cove.
