  • Tips For Bringing Your Dog To Pawleys

    11/13/2015 in Pawleys Island vacation rentals

    When bringing "Fido" to Pawleys, you need to prepare like you would for a child. Here’s what you should consider before you leave.

    Bring drinking water & a bowl: While your dog may enjoy drinking the ocean, it does not hydrate them. Beware of the amount of ocean water they drink, it may cause an upset stomach.

    Provide shade: Like people dogs can get sunburn and it is best to limit the time in the direct sun. Offer your dog a cool shady spot to lay when it gets too hot. If the sand is too hot for you, it is too hot for your dog.

    Recommended Items: Toys, First Aid Kit, Treats, Leash, Medication & Specialty food, Important medical papers, Pet bed & other daily necessities, Sunscreen, ID, Life Jacket, etc.

     Scooper & Extra Bags: Like any public place you must pick up after your dog.

    Know The Rules:

    - Georgetown County Beach Rules and Regulations: Dogs must be leashed from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dogs that are not leashed during other hours must be under voice control and owners must be able to demonstrate voice control to a law enforcement officer if asked

    - Lachicotte Rental Policy: Dogs are allowed only in designated Pet Friendly homes. NO EXCEPTIONS. Pets are limited to two domestic, housebroken dogs unless otherwise advertised. There is a non-refundable $200.00 (plus tax) pet cleaning and spray fee that will be charged to each guest bringing a pet. Any violation with pets in a No Pets home or any pet other than a dog will be cause for termination of tenancy.

    Keep An Eye Out: Dogs have a talent for finding hidden objects on the beach. Look for old fishing gear, broken glass, garbage, jellyfish, etc. 

    Respect Others:  Some people will be excited to see your dog but others are not as welcoming. Do not let your dog disrupt other beach goers.

    The above tips are meant as a general guideline please contact us or your vet for more information. It is recommended that sick, injured or pregnant dogs stay at home.

  • Road Trip Hacks

    09/30/2015 in Pawleys Island vacation rentals

    Each year, the majority of our renters drive to the area. Weather the drive is 5 hours or 20 below are some tips.

    - Cool your hot car by rolling down one window, then walk to the other side and open and close the door multiple times.

    - Use a rubber band as a phone holder.

    - Exit signs are positioned depending on which side the exit is.

    - Cereal boxes made a great trash can.

    - If you a driving a unfamiliar car, the arrow next to the gas pump shows which side of the car the gas tank is on.

    - Dryer sheets make a great air freshener.

    - When getting gas, hold the trigger halfway. You will get less air in the tank and more gas.

    - If in a traffic jam, pay attention to which lane the 18 wheelers are using.  They communicate with each other to know which lanes to avoid.

    - Clear nail polish can fix scratches.

    - Turning your steering wheel 180 degrees when parked, keeps the top from being burning hot when you return.

    - Parking someplace unfamiliar? Drop a pin on your phone map.

    - Mesh bungee can be used as a coat hanger.

    - Shower caddys can hold oil and other liquids that you need for the trip.

    - If you need repairs on the road and worry about getting conned. Ask about a part of the car that you know is in good shape.

    - If under 25, you can get the rental car surcharge fee waived by registering for a USAA membership.

    - Keep an emergency kit in your trunk.

    - Bring an inflatable pool floatie if you need a bed.

    - If a truck suddenly slows down, you should too. Truckers communicate speed traps.

    - Don't change lanes during a traffic jam. Studies show you will not get out any faster. You will though increase your chance of getting into a accident.
