OCEANVIEW BEACH COTTAGE - PRIME LOCATION

Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This cottage is ideally located for families and couples who want to come and go from the beach and downtown without driving, parking or walking very far. The beach access, directly across the street, is just 40 feet from the front steps. Restaurants and shopping area are just 3 blocks away. We are located at the corner of West Ashley Ave. and 4th Ave. - you can't miss our bright yellow cottage.

One of Folly's original cottages, the Love Shack has its original heartpine floors, board and batten walls and furnishings of its era. You can see the ocean from almost every room in the house - or listen to the ocean and feel the breezes on the front screened porch and large deck. There's even a roof top deck over the porch if you want a panoramic view of the island.

This rental offers guests a combination of comfort and nostalgia that's getting harder to come by...we have aimed to preserve the same flavor we enjoyed as youngsters coming to the beach, before the era of condos and 'McMansions.' This property has 2 bedrooms and a large living area, both areas equipped with 42' flat screen TVs. Our large sofa in the living area converts to a queen bed - for extra sleeping and guests. Our cottage has approximately 650 square feet.

The living area and kitchen are open, divided by a bar/table/counter which is an old hatch door from a WWII Liberty Ship - refinished of course.

Folly Beach is a six mile long barrier island, and the closest beach to historic Charleston, South Carolina, 15 minutes on the Connector. In choosing Folly Beach as one of their top ten 'All American Beach Towns,' AOL Travel described the things to see: 'Communing with nature is more common than commuting to the office, honking is what the birds do, and a board meeting is a bunch of surfers hanging out at the Washout. Newcomers' first stop should be McKevlin's Surf Shop, here since 1965. They'll set you up with a rental and one-hour lesson for $40. Folly Beach County Park is quieter than busy Center Street beach, but still has boogie boards, umbrellas, and bikes for rent. At Folly Beach Crab Shack, grab a hammock chair, and munch on buckets of seafood.'

We welcome children of all ages and dogs. Our property is located on a corner lot. The backyard has a canopy of live oaks and is completely fenced. This home is not nearly as elevated as the newer ones; so there's only 10 steps from the back door to the yard. All these features make pet care and child care a lot easier.

During summer season, we rent by the week and our turnover day is Saturday. Check-in: 3:00 PM; Check-out: 10:00 AM

Guestbook comments from the owner
Great cottage - don't change, just maintain - it's what a beach cottage is supposed to be. The atmosphere on Folly is wonderful. Reminds us of Wrightsville and Carolina beaches before the infusion of mega money! Hope to come back for some Spring and Fall visits. Really enjoyed our stay.

After a long career, I chose Charleston as my retirement home. What's so interesting about that is...I traveled several years in search of my perfect spot and ended up only 100 miles from home.

Charleston is multi dimensional in what it offers. I enjoy the history, culture, art, music, and academia of downtown, but cherish most the beach, boating, and bohemian attitude of our barrier islands (Folly). So, for now, I lawyer a little with my downtown firm, and spend most of my time on the beach, water, or traveling. I now have two baby grandchildren in the area...so my traveling is taking a second seat.

Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner purchased this house in 2005

I chose Folly Beach for its relaxed atmosphere and convenience to downtown Charleston. I'm able to enjoy the beach just as I did as a teen at Folly because it has retained its identity.

COZY COMFORTABLE AND BASICALLY OCEANFRONT!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay at the love shack with our 1 year old and two pups. It was a great location to the beach.. Basically oceanfront.. And a short three blocks down to the main road with shops resturaunts and the pier. Only a short drive to charleston it was a great trip mixing sight seeing and beach bumming. Thanks BJ and Gary for a lovely stay! BJ is very helpful and welcoming.

JUST AS ADVERTISED.

Great spot, great location appears just as advertised. I'd consider this an excellent location on Folly Beach - close to town center and very close to nice area of beach. Easy access to Charleston. Owner available by phone if needed & very responsive.

SPRING GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I, and our Golden Retriever enjoyed our stay very much. The vintage cottage was just what we want in a get-away place for a week of sightseeing. It was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. With a beach access just across the street, the views are great and it's just a short walk. Also, this time of year, dogs are allowed on the beach anytime. Be mindful of the May 1 time restrictions. Our primary activity was sightseeing Charleston, and the location afforded easy access to the downtown and surrounding areas. The only downside was the house construction project across the street that was noisy and caused traffic congestion. That is not the fault of the cottage, and should be finished in a few weeks. Just park on the back of the property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your compliments for our little Love Shack! We try hard to maintain our cottage's vintage quality, admidst Folly's surging popularity (bringing seasonal congestion and occasional construction). Thanks, too, for reminding us all about the dog rules for summer! It's unfortunate that dogs are restricted from the beach from 10 to 6; but, luckily, our cottage is close by so you can check on them regularly. We hope you will return in the future!
We are sorry we do not get to meet all our guests - but traffic and flexible schedules seem to get in the way this time of year. Remember, we are only 10 miles away - so don't hesitate to call if you need anything!

Although the weather did not cooperate we had a wonderful time with our new dog! The cottage was super comfortable and decorated so you really felt at home. Everything was exactly as advertised and the owner couldn't have been nicer. Hope to return!

REPEAT VISITORS!

  • 5 of 5
We love the Love Shack! Its a wonderful little beach cottage. After staying here numerous times, we feel like its our home away from home. Its clean thanks to GiGi and has everything you need in the kitchen...nice knives, mixing bowls, bake ware and pots. Its so close to the beach and just a short walk to some great places to eat. We always go to Rita's(for burgers), the Crab Shack (for seafood especially the local oysters and shrimp), Locklears (seafood pasta yum) and Taco Boy and never miss getting a delivery from Woody's!! And our favorite part is the nice fenced in back yard, wonderful for our pups. BJ is a wonderful host, working with us on everything we need.

FELT LIKE HOME AWAY FROM HOME ON FOLLY BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
The Love Shack on FB was a comfortable, cozy retreat! We loved staying in a traditional, heritage cottage...with ALL the modern conveniences like large flat screen tv, and the best cookware of any rental we've stayed at. The Heat was perfect on cold days, and the AC was perfect on warm days.
The ocean view from the side of the main deck and from the crow's nest is great.
Our dog loved the fenced in back yard, and walks on the beach. Warning: FB has strict leash laws!
Working with B.J.to reserve our stay at her home, and with Gigi to check out was awesome! Super friendly, and very accommodating to our schedule and needs. We felt like we were staying in the home of long time friends.

Car: recommended

Love Shack is directly across the street from the beach. Located on a corner lot on second row, your ocean views are unobstructed and your beach path a direct shot through the widest beach access at Folly.

We are 3 blocks from downtown (Center Street) and 3 1/2 blocks from the pier. Most guests just park their car for the week....and walk or bike everywhere. And, this is a good thing - as parking is at a premium downtown during Spring, Summer, and Fall. Love Shack's view and location are perfect.

This location is ideal for young families and folks who like to walk back and forth from the beach during the day. And, for dog lovers who like to check on their pets many times each day while on the beach. Guests also enjoy watching their friends and children in the ocean from Love Shack's large front deck.
