About Us

An “Arrogantly Shabby” Creek House

“Arrogantly Shabby” is a term that has been used to describe Pawleys Island for decades.  Built in 1983, Cypress Sunrise retains the “Old Pawleys” feel despite some recent updating to the kitchen, living areas and outdoor spaces.  Cypress Sunrise is situated in a very unique neighborhood along the Pawleys Island creek.  Escape to the serenity of the Waterford Heights neighborhood after a busy day “out and about” and enjoy dinner overlooking the salt marsh.  Waterford Heights is close to all that Pawleys has to offer but is tucked away along the creek at the end of a two mile long wooded road. Visit our “About” page to learn more about this unique property.

Meet Your Hosts

We have lived together, with our two children, in Pawleys Island for 10years.  Kristy is a third generation “Islander”, having grown up in Pawleys Island and played in the creek as a child.  Her father grew up in the big yellow house across the creek from Cypress Sunrise and also played in the creek his entire life.  When the opportunity arose to purchase a creek front property, we were so excited to jump in! We spend lots of time exploring the salt marsh and are excited to share this little known treasure of lowcountry life with you!

Things to do at Cypress Sunrise

Kayaking & Paddleboarding

Your rental fee includes the use of one tandem kayak.  You can rent more kayaks by choosing that option at checkout.  If taking a paddleboard out is more your style, you can rent one from Surf the Earth here in Pawleys.

Crabbing & Fishing

Who doesn’t love a mess of fresh blue crabs?  In the Creek Room you’ll find crab traps and crab lines.  Picking crabs on the dock is an excellent way to end the day.

Love to lure the fish?  Cast a line from the dock or take the included tandem kayak out to a nearby deeper channel to try your luck catching flounder or red drum.


Pack your creek shoes and jump in!  There is a small sandbar right off of the dock that makes a great, shallow “swimmin’ hole” at high tide.  Just be sure to watch out for those oyster shells!  If you are feeling adventurous, put your tubes or floats in the creek at the south end parking lot during an incoming tide and float your way back to the dock.


The beach is just a short drive or paddle away.  Check out the Town of Pawleys Island website for beach access and parking information.


Myrtle Beach, the golf capital of the world, is just up the road.  Or you can stay local.  Pawleys Island and Litchfield is home to more than 10 beautiful courses!

“The view of this home on the creek is really awesome and we loved our vacation here! The screened in porch is great to avoid the mosquitos at dusk and the house offers lots of space for sleeping. We slept 4 adults and 5 kids with ease and never even used the pull out couch since 2 kids were on air mattresses in the spacious bedrooms. We have little kids so the extra closet space was well Utilized as play fort areas.

The downstairs below the house is great for grilling and hanging out and we were thankful for all the little amenities like coffee, keurig, kids games, and lots of kitchen supplies. The home also offers a kayak, nice grass area for kids play, and dock seating for sunset, sunrise, and late night star viewing. But by far the best part of this home is the creek access. Our kids LOVED exploring nature with daily walks in the creek and playing in sand bars at low to mid tide. The ocean side of the beach is a 10 minute drive around the creek or you can take your boat out from mid to high tide with ease.”

Location & Nearby Attractions

Cypress Sunrise is located on the south side of Pawleys Island.  Just a 10 minute drive leads you to beautiful beaches, shopping and dining.

Playing in the creek is a great way to spend the day but if you’d like to get out and see the sights, we recommend the following:


Looking for a little adventure? Murrells Inlet is just up the road and has lots of options!

Shows & Entertainment

If you’re willing to drive a little, there are some fantastic, award winning shows in Myrtle Beach (45 minutes – 1 hour away)

Biking & Hiking

Cypress Sunrise is located in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a two-mile wooded road.  Bring your bikes or rent some while you’re in town and enjoy bike rides along this paved road.  Be sure to wave to the neighbors while you’re out. Many take daily walks or rides.

There is no hiking in the woods that border the neighborhood, as that property is privately owned and part of a nature conservancy.  You can, however, enjoy trails at Huntington Beach State Park, which is about 15 minutes north on Highway 17.

Day Trips
  • Charleston (about 90 minutes south)
  • Myrtle Beach (about 45 minutes north)
  • Wilmington, NC (about 2 hours north)

Matt M., WV

This home is exactly what we were looking for. It’s located on a quiet neighborhood and on the marsh. Our kids loved going into the creek and catching hermit crabs. Definitely recommend visiting and staying at Cypress Sunrise.
