Durant Rivah House -- 4 Bedroom/3 Bath With Pool, Dock & Boat Transportation

Waterfront vacation home in Pawleys Island with water park
This is a unique and exclusive opportunity to those who love nature, water, relaxing, fishing and getting away from the busy city noises but only a ten min boat ride to land. The Island Rivah house is a lakefront home located on Sandy Island, SC only accessible by boat.

Boat rental/licensed captain for hire and available upon request! Rates/availability may vary. Bringing your own boat is welcome too!

The space

This quiet oasis is the perfect escape for the outdoorsman, family trips, business excursions, environmentalists, golfers or anyone just looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and its full of wildlife.

You will be picked up at the Reserve Harbour Yacht Club located in Pawleys Island, SC on an enclosed 12 passenger boat by Captain RiverJon and whisked to your exclusive stay at this home. This boat has windows to see all there is to see, a small kitchen and bathroom.

The house has two king master suites which open to the deck over looking the river or the forest. A double bedroom and a bedroom with bunk beds, share full bath. There are two dens with direct tv which include HBO, Cinemax, ESPN, and NFL channels and DVD players.

A very large, spacious kitchen with all appliances necessary for the gourmet or family cooked meals including a dishwasher. All everyday condiments will be available in the home but you will need to bring your own groceries. We have a large refrigerator to accommodate all. There is a BiLo, Publix, and Fresh Market all close by the Marina.

There is a washer and dryer available with all supplies.

There are two very large decks surrounding the home with several outdoor sitting areas all with gates.

The bottom deck provides 24-hour fishing right into the river where you will find brim, catfish, crapy, bass, and other fish. There is a fish cleaning station provided. These waters are brackish and full of fish and turtles.

There is a small inviting pool that can also be turned into a hot tub on those cold nights or to soothe aching muscles. There are abundant outdoor ambiance lighting.

Guest access

We have paddleboards and kayaks (upon request) or you can bring your own. We also encourage our guests to bring their own boat or look into rentals for the duration of your stay if you anticipate daily rides to and from the marina. We're happy to recommend The Reserve Marina and their pontoon boat rentals if you would like to contact them regarding pricing details.


Our team has a river taxi/shuttle service that provides 1 complimentary ride per day to and from the mainland (initial pickup at check-in and your departure check out return trip), but is also available for hire with daily and weekly rates. Services provided by our on-call licensed captain, RiverJohn. Any questions about this specifically, please include in your initial inquiry. Thanks!

To ensure the safety of both our guests and our licensed captain, boat rides to and from the marina will need to take place before sundown. The river marina closes its guard gates no later than 10 pm, please be aware any rides after this time would need to be communicated PRIOR to booking, we appreciate your understanding of this matter.

Interaction with guests

We can make ourselves as available as possible to our guests either personally, or with our neighbors who live close by. Rides to and from the marina, scheduling of personal tours/excursions, or even if a simple maintenance issue arises, we are here to help!

Boat rental available upon request! Rates/availability may vary.

**Our caretaker/licensed captain lives on-site (separate dwelling) for the safety & accessibility of our guests throughout their stay. Guests will have exclusive access to the rental/home but acknowledge that our guests' safety takes top priority**

Other things to note

Enjoy the cool nights around the fire pit and roast some marshmallows! We provide the wood.

This house is very kid-friendly.

We have tours available by Captain River John:

Day tour taken by passenger boat to Georgetown Harbor for a day of history, adventures in the museums and shops. Great local food on the wharf with restaurants and pubs.

Lunch/ Brunch at the Wache Wache Marina, Bucksport Marina which are both about a 30 min boat ride

We are happy to take you to your car at the reserve for a day of shopping or golf. A lot of golf courses available close to the marina or we can make a reservation for you and will drop you off and pick you up at the marina.

Island river cruise to Pee Dee/Georgetown river entrance where you can see some of the rice plantations still in existence with a lot of history.

Great to just cruise down the river with wine and cheese/ snacks for the kids to see the beautiful changing of the fall leaves or to just enjoy the beautiful river.

Restful Thanksgiving
This property was just as advertised! It was peaceful and beautiful. Sitting on the porch watching the day go by and being able to visit with one another was great. Access to Sandy Hill natural area was right out the back door and was a welcome surprise. I would recommend this property to anyone willing to take the boat ride. Thank you for sharing your home with my family.

Dustin and Diana’s Wedding
We had a great time! The house was clean and beautiful. The location was perfect. River John was lovely, very helpful and patient! Thank you for making this special moment unforgettable!

4/5 Good

The house had plenty of room for everyone. With three 15 year olds, a 12 year old, 9 year old , and 7 year old and cold rainy weather, the lack of TVs and internet made it stressful at times. There were only 3 TVs available only one of which was in a bedroom. Tablets and computers wouldnt stay connected to internet for more than a few seconds. The kids liked the idea of having the private pool but the allowed 89 degree water temp wasnt quite pleasing when the outside temp was in low 70's and high 60's and awful winds blowing. The boys had fun fishing off the deck and seeing small alligators at night with flashlights. Overall if the weather was better our 5 day stay would have been more enjoyable. It finally warmed up on the day we left. Our family would go back, but I will definitely choose mid July next time instead of mid june in hopes the weather is warmer bc kids cooped up inside made it a bit stressful. Us adults couldnt tolerate tye cold weather and cold pool water.

Last Minute Accomodations
The home was a very nice size for our family of 5. The kids really enjoyed the pool and as a parent I enjoyed the fact that the pool was not oversized or deep. There were plenty of linens. Essential toiletries were provided, if needed. Access to tv and wifi. There are a few beaches within walking distance, along with beautiful walking trails. These were convenient activities since there is only boat access to the main part of town. The solitude of this location is wonderful. I could absolutely see this being a paradise for avid fisherman. We saw so much wildlife but particularly fish jumping once boat traffic died down. Beds were comfortable (at least the ones we used) Some feedback shared with the property management team is that it should be made very clear that Captain Rivah John (very nice gentleman) lives in a small appendage on the back of the house. Which means you will see him meandering on the porch/dock each day. When we were told he lived onsite we took this to mean he lived on the island without sharing the space/dock/etc. For many this likely is a wonderful idea to have easy access to him. However, for us we were looking for the solitude this location offers and so sharing a space and seeing others on property through out each day was not what we had intended for our stay. He is also a smoker and oddly enough the smoke came in through the HVAC a few times so the smell permeated the home. I am not sure if it was just a particular place he stood at times that caused this. The last piece is that there are a few appliances that have withstood their time and are in need of replacement. The microwave was not in working order for our stay. As a result of not feeling entirely comfortable with the arrangement we ended our trip a day early. We appreciate the accommodations and the opportunity to have experienced this part of the island.

5/5 Excellent

Great Getaway
We had an excellent time! Gorgeous and remote, this property was perfect for the relaxing week we spent. The boat tour was amazing, and the house was well stocked, and we can't wait to visit again!
