My house has a modern, casual beach vibe built for families and friends who are ready to lounge in the surf by day and linger on the decks by night. Charleston Magazine's July 2014 issue features Folly Beach's great restaurants. Look it up online!
if your vacation agenda includes sitting in a rocking chair, surfing, kayaking, biking, building sand castles and watching the waves roll in with your family and friends then this is the place for you. This is an unpretentious beach cottage built for lazy days and hanging out. Charleston design maven, Angie Hranowsky updated the living areas, kitchen and dining area.
My house has everything you need to dine in with a large crew. Six bedrooms and four baths. Two living areas, three tv's. Five queen beds, two twins, plus two built in day beds in the aerie loft. Wireless internet. Screened porch and deck overlook the ocean on a sandy beach. Restaurants are within walking distance. The decor is happy, laid back, and fun like Folly Beach. My address is 817 West Ashley Avenue. It is .8mi from Center Street.
The layout is four bedrooms downstairs flanking the kitchen/dining/living area with jack and jill baths in between the oceanfront and street side bedrooms. Upstairs is a loft with two built in day beds. There are two bedrooms flanking each end of the loft with two baths just outside of the bedrooms. There are five bedrooms with Queen beds, and one bedroom with two twin beds, plus the loft with two built in day beds. This is a non-smoking, no pet property. The house is directly on the ocean. One bedroom has a sliding glass door leading to the deck. The twin bedroom is on the street side. Four bedrooms have ocean front views. Bed linens and bath sheets are provided for fourteen guests. Beach towels are not provided. There are three tvs in the house. One in the living area, one in the loft, and one in the downstairs bedroom with the sliding door to the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cooking utensils, dishes, and serving platters. Outside is a gas grille. There are several rocking chairs, adirondack chairs, and lounge chairs on the deck and screened porch. Under the house is an area outfitted with two picnic tables and a hammock. There is an outdoor shower on the deck as you leave the beach, and an outdoor shower under the house. Check in is 4 pm. Check out is 10 am.
The house is so close to the water that at high tide it looks like you are riding the waves on a boat.

Paulette Lambert Weiss purchased this house in 1999
We love the relaxed nature of Folly. Basically, we love the beach and really wanted a home on the water. The hassle of finding a parking space and dragging beach gear back and forth is eliminated when you can walk out the door and be on the sand with the convenience of an outdoor shower whenever you want.
We ride bikes on the beach, have bonfires at night (with a permit), grill on the deck, fish, go crabbing, surf, spend time with friends and family. Oyster roasts are great under the house. The Surf Bar and Taco Boy are great restaurants and very close. Woody's delivers delicious wood fired pizza and Dolphin deli delivers great sandwiches. There is a small grocery on the island called Bert's where you can find pints of Ben and Jerry's ice cream,etc.
Charleston is only 17 minutes away so it is very convenient to go to the city for a completely different experience.
Great fit for us. We had friends and relatives stop for a visit to and from Florida and we were able to accommodate our kids and grandkids for their visit. All had a wonderful time visiting the market downtown, going to plays, comedy shows, plantations, museums and the carrier Yorktown not to mention walking to center Street in Folly to enjoy shops and restaurants. We found a wonderful public playground nearby that the kids loved. Walks on the beach were done by all. Polly is on top of things and couldn't be a better landlord.
Polly's Folly Ocean Front Beach House was perfect the house has everything you need.
We just returned from an amazing week in Folly Beach. The day that we arrived at the house was very windy--when we walked up the stairs to open the front door we looked through the windows of the house and it was if the ocean was right outside the living room! Awesome. The location is ideal--far enough away from town to be peaceful and quiet, and close enough to walk to dinner. The house was as advertised--plenty of room for the ten of us to spread out and have our own space(s), yet also ample space for being together. The enclosed porch is great, and the deck is oceanfront with lots of comfortable chairs for lounging. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Polly or the realty company. A couple of things that need repair/updating: the microwave sounds as if it's about to go, the top shelf in the dishwasher doesn't pull out, the fan in the south bathroom on the first floor makes a strange noise, and we couldn't find a dustpan, or guest book. All really small things--did not at all mar our amazing week. We are already planning another trip.
This was a great place to stay. Listing description was accurate and we found the house just as presented in the photo section. Very Clean and Well maintained. This weekend was to celebrate our engagement and housed all five couples with plenty of room. It is right on the beach and just a stone skip away from the house!! The kitchen was great and came with all the equipment to cook our own meals all weekend!! Perfect place to stay if you are looking to get away from the normally crowded beaches on Folly, but only a 15-20 min walk from the pier and "down town" Folly area with all the restaurants. Paulette was great!! I would recommend this home to any Folly beach go-er. We had an amazing weekend and the home was at the center of it all!! Thanks!!
My entire family, (11 members), spent a wonderful week at Polly's Folly over Christmas week 2012. Even when we and area family members were all in the house it never felt crowded due to the remarkable floor design. Everything was exactly as described and with four bathrooms there was never any waiting for showers.
The beachfront was the highlight of the week for most of the "Yankees" and the home's location was perfect. On several occasions dolphins swam right up to the beach.
I would highly recommend staying there and plan to do so at a future date.
Our family stayed here right after Christmas. 2 teen boys, 2 younger kids (12 & 7), 2 sets of parents and 2 grandparents. There was plenty of room for all of us and everyone was very happy here. Great gathering places & also plenty of spots for privacy when wanted. Bathroom layout was very nice too! The loft is much bigger then we were expecting and it was a favorite spot with all the kids. The porch was inviting and a favorite spot with everyone over the vacation! Great location - walking distance to the pier one way and the river the other way. We've stayed at many folly beach houses over several years and they all have + and -. This was one of our favorites!!! Not all the beds appeared to be queens but no one complained. We had trouble with the dishwasher (door wouldn't go all the way down due to fridge being in the way & wouldn't finish whole cycle without pressure on the door to stay shut). But, like I said, all houses have their own quirks. It's a GREAT house, very welcoming.
Folly Beach is 17 minutes by car from Charleston, SC. The beauty of being at the beach is that you can relax by the water and go in to the city with very little effort. Charleston is rich in beauty and history, Folly is lovely and laid back.
