Overview

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

DO NOT RENT THIS COTTAGE FROM A CRAIGS LIST ADVERTISEMENT - A NEW GROUP OF SCAMMERS ARE USING THIS AND OTHER VRBO ADVERTISED PROPERTIES TO SCAM TRAVELERS. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, YOU MAY CALL ME DIRECTLY AT 843-723-3991.

About Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner

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

Why Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner chose Folly Beach

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.

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.

Perfect location, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a quick walk to the beach and has a great view of the ocean. Our dog loved the fenced yard and watching the squirrels from the screen porch. The kitchen and bath were newly updated. The beds were comfortable. The upstairs living area was very clean. We would have used the downstairs shuffleboard table more if it had been cleaner. the cottage was fully stocked with everything we needed.

Repeat Performance

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Folly Beach, and we were very fortunate to have this place available again. It's located perfectly across from the ocean, and a few blocks from town. We travel with our golden retriever, and the secure yard and front deck makes it worry free. Cozy, comfy, completely equipped with everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. Thanks again!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Love Shack. For a couple traveling with their dog, it just doesn't get much better. I don't really have much to add to the other reviews except to say that I hope to stay here again in the not too distant future.

Relaxing Charm

  • 5 of 5

A really wonderful 1920s cottage very well appointed. 100 feet from the beach, with a delightful screened in porch. We enjoyed having our dogs there with the fenced in yard out back. Very clean and very comfortable beds. A great weekend getaway.

We love the Love Shack

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times and this time was just as fabulous. Love the renovated kitchen. This location is perfect and the fenced in yard is perfect for our four legged children. Be sure to visit Taco Boy and the Crab Shack. For an easy night in, order Woodys Pizza. And the Lost Dog for breakfast is a must. Can't wait until our next visit.

Great place by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days. The house was neat and clean; the kitchen well stocked. The linens were very nice. It's a smaller place, so don't bring 10 of your relatives, but it was perfect for the two of us. It has a real "cottage" feel that I enjoyed. The fenced in back yard was great for our dog. (The fencing was very nicely done.) The screened deck and lookout were great. Good parking available. The central air and a window unit keep things nice and cool during a very humid time. The washer and dryer worked great and were easily accessible but you had to go outside. No problem for us. We rented some bikes to go to parks, out to eat and shop. I would love to come back to this house next year!

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.
