Overview

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This charming beach cottage appeals to single travelers and couples seeking a small, but unique, vacation-home-away-from-home. It offers the best of both worlds: just one block from shops, restaurants and 'downtown' Folly Beach's night life...yet it's tucked away on a shady street lined with palm, live oak and magnolia trees. Enter your own little world behind the green garden gate to find a charming walkway with a patio garden on one side and the entrance to Little Turtle Guest Cottage on the other. Next door is 'Big Turtle Cottage', so you're near a wonderful cottage compound, should you ever decide to include others and have a family or friends reunion.

Inside Little Turtle Guest Cottage you'll find a comfortable home for single travelers or couples who appreciate the adventure that a small but romantic vacation setting can offer. Many honeymooners and couples celebrate their anniversaries here. It's also great for a mother/daughter retreat and many writers have found it to be a productive and beautiful place to write. We have many guests who return year after year.

This cottage is new but designed to fit the nearby 'vintage 1940's cottage.' of the main cottage next door (Big Turtle Cottage where, yes, Elvis Presley once ate barbecue). It has ceramic tile throughout and a comfortable built-in, wrap-around, sitting area for reading, lounging and watching tv.

The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator,electric stove with oven, toaster oven, microwave, a coffee pot and a window over the sink that looks out into your garden. The bathroom has a ceramic tile shower. A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft and a comfy queen-size mattress on a platform bed.

Just outside your cottage is a walled-garden patio complete with 2 lounge chairs for sipping your mint juleps (or your michelob), reading, or just looking up at the stars. And after a day spent at the beach, there's nothing better than an outdoor hot/cold shower where you can 'shower with the mermaids'.

Situated on Folly Beach, a classic 'American Beach Town,' this cottage is small but truly unique. Some would say 'enchanted'.

It truly is enchanting

  • 5 of 5

I felt like I had won the travelers lottery when I walked into this adorable cottage. It was beatiful, efficient, immaculate, and absolutely serene. I loved the outdoor, hot-water shower and patio with lovely rattan lounge chairs... The owner is a wonderful person to work with and I only hope I am fortunate enough to return to this cottage...and by the way Folly Beach is also wonderful; not too crowded during the week and almost deserted early in the mornings and in the evenings, lots of shops and restaurants...everything you need for a perfect beach get-away.

Absolutely perfect !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Little Turtle with my little dog Darby, and it was absolutely perfect.Mary Ann was quick,friendly, and so easy to deal with making arrangements. The cottage was very clean,well appointed, and tastefully decorated. The out door patio was very private and secluded.The location is ideal, as it is only a few blocks from downtown, the beach, and Bert's store, where you can get just about anything 24/7.I will always look to stay at Little Turtle now,or Big Turtle, which is next door and is a bigger two bedroom cottage,Thank you & best wishes.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

It is the funniest story because my husband and I found this place and fell in love with the reviews and pictures so we started the process of booking it. As we were emailing the owner (Mary Ann) and setting up the reservation my husband thought it was so funny that she had the same name as the officiant who had married us on Folly Beach the previous year. Turns out....it was her! She is so nice and the cottage is INCREDIBLE. Such a romantic place for a small weekend getaway (or even a long one if you managed to get time off! Lol) and I wish we could of stayed forever. It is so cozy and beautiful and has everything you need right there. The beach is just a few hundred yards away and requires no driving. The detail in the place is gorgeous. We cannot WAIT to go back. Thank you Mary Ann! :)

A bit of heaven......

  • 5 of 5

Would I return? In a heartbeat! I spent the month of January in the Enchanted Cottage on Folly Beach; it is a magical place and so good for the soul! When you cross the bridge onto Folly Island, the world slips away and you enter a laidback lifestyle and the most dog friendly community you will ever experience. The cottage is exactly as depicted; I especially loved the patio and outside shower. Thank you (and Bentley) for providing such serene surroundings; I was so content. The cottage location is perfect as you are only two blocks from the Ocean, gorgeous sand beaches as far as the eye can see, and funky shops and restaurants on Folly's Center Street. I loved Planet Follywood's burgers, they are the absolute best and my favourite was the blue cheese and bacon. You have the best of both worlds here; it is a 10-minute drive into Charleston if you wish to explore the gorgeous architecture along Meeting Street and the Battery, which I highly recommend. I think I contracted island fever; you don't want to leave the island, you just want to go to the ocean! It was perfect.

Owner's Response: I think it takes a special kind of person to appreciate the simplicity (and size!) of the Enchanted Cottage, not to mention the guts to take an outdoor shower in January. (Note to all reading this: yes, there is an indoor shower but you can't beat looking up at the sky and seeing the beautiful, gnarled limbs of a live oak tree). Of course, I'm sure all those days with temperatures in the 70's made that shower experience very inviting. And thank you for reminding everyone about why Folly Beach isn't just any beach. Its proximity to all that is wonderful in Charleston (voted as the Number One Travel Destination City in the U.S. by Conde Nast and Travel & Leisure) makes it a great beach/history/art/culinary experience getaway. The serenity of the ocean in the morning. The sophistication, unique architecture, history and fabulous restaurants of the city in the afternoon or evening. Then back to the island to take one last look at the moon over the ocean. So glad you took the opportunity to savor it all. See you next winter?

Enchanted Cottage by the Sea

Cool little place to stay. Location was great, close to the beach, Folly beach bars and restaurants. Mary Ann is a pleasure to work with!

Owner's Response: We're glad you appreciated the convenience of the location. One guest describes it as "being close to everything - meaning the ocean and the shops and restaurants - but very much in its own private, little world." We're happy you enjoyed it and hope you return.

Paradise on Folly

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Mary Ann's cottage twice a year for over 4 years now. Each time I leave and cannot wait to return. It is charming, peaceful and perfect! Mary Ann is an amazing host who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. I really consider this place my second home. Folly has a way of working it's way into your heart and soul. I would encourage anyone looking for a special place to get away from the craziness of life to stay here! I am looking forward to my next stay in May... it cannot come soon enough! Enjoy!

Map

Car: not necessary

Folly Beach is a completely unique place. It's more like an old-fashioned American beach town than anywhere on the East Coast of the U.S. While it is undergoing a surge in popularity, it still has many humble, tumbled-down beach cottages right next to large 'mega-beach mansions'. The downtown area has comfortable cafes and bar and the locals are welcoming and just colorful enough to make it interesting. The 'Enchanted Beach Cottage' on this site is a guest house on a site with a beautifully restored 1940 vintage cottage. It is strategically located to give you the best of all worlds: on a street shaded by palm trees and ancient live oaks but close to the ocean and to the heart of town.

Notes:
This is a very sweet, romantic, charming but small cottage. On the ground floor: a kitchen area with fridge, electric range with oven, microwave, and coffee pot...a full sized ceramic tile bath with shower...a comfortable lounging area with built-in sofas; cafe table and chairs; TV/VCR. A spiral staircase leads to a sleeping loft with a queen sized bed/mattress. Note that it is not handicapped accessible because of the spiral staircase. It opens onto its own private patio with two lounge chairs and an outdoor hot/cold shower. After a great day at the beach, pour yourself a cold drink and shower in the fresh air under a beautiful blue sky. This is a remarkably peaceful place for those seeking quiet at the beach yet with convenience to both the ocean and the island's 'downtown' scene.
