A SC HOA is trying to control this home’s yard. The problem? It’s not in an HOA

In a Little River neighborhood there’s a house with a Trump 2024 sign, a Biden 2024 sign and what was described online as a “redneck dream catcher” — a wooden wreath with beer cans tied on.

These are just a few of the decorations that have been put up by the owners in a show of property rights and civil disobedience.

The Little River home is one of six that sits between two HOAs —the Carolina Crossing HOA and another run by Waccamaw Management — but is a part of neither. Despite that, the HOAs have been trying to control the yard since before they moved in, according to resident Anna Marie.

Carolina Crossing HOA property supervisor Lara Hughes said since the house is not apart of the HOA, it has not done anything with the owner. Waccamaw Management said they did not have that house in their HOA.

The property was advertised as sitting between Carolina Crossing and North Village and not having an HOA by Realtor Traci Miles.

Anna Marie lives in the decked out house with her family, she told The Sun News by text. She has also been documenting her yard journey on TikTok, with one video gaining over 2 million views.

The final straw for Anna Marie and her family was when she brought a camper out of storage and put it in the front yard.

“Long story short, moved my travel trailer out of storage for repairs. Wasn’t even here 24 hours before our lovely HOA neighbors called the county on us,” she wrote in a caption on a June 27 TikTok video.

Two days later, she had put up a pride flag, a garden gnome and a sign that said, “Thanks for the concern about my trailer. Thus far no mandatory date has been set for removal.”

Since then, the lawn decorations have increased. There’s now 10 pink flamingos, a kiddie pool, grill and another sign that says, “Proudly non-HOA.” In a video, Marie said she’s gotten many positive reactions to her yard.

“A lot of people around the neighborhood thought it was really funny and even were trying to contribute,” Anna Marie said on TikTok. “With both of these HOA communities … we have some people who are pretty mad about it”

Horry County was one of three counties in South Carolina with more half of all the complaints against HOAs/management companies reported in South Carolina last year, according to the S.C. Department of Consumer Affairs report. Horry County had the highest amount with 24.4%.

Adding the decor has been Anna Marie and her family’s way to exercise their property rights while having fun.

“All this was at the end of the day was good fun and showing that nobody is going to take (away) the rights of our property and what we’re going to do with it,” Anna Marie said in the same video.
