About The Owner
My husband and I lived in Folly for 4 years and fell in love with the beauty and laid back feeling of Folly. We have since moved back to the hills of North Carolina, but wanted to keep a connection to Folly for us and our 5 children and 9 grandchildren. We had a smaller rental, Daffodil Cottages, that we rent, but needed a larger space for our huge crew. We found this vintage beach house, loved the location and the character it had, mess that it was. For almost a year, we and our very hard working children, turned the house into a fun place for our family to gather and also a great rental. Originally, the house was a single family house, but somewhere along the line, has been turned into two separate units, each with 3 bedrooms. It makes it nice when the whole family goes because we have room to spread out with 6 bedrooms, 3 bath, each having it's own kitchen and laundry...giving a bit of 'space' for everyone. Also, if just a few want to go, we can pick either up or down, and rent the other space. It was perfect for us and also a unique rental space that thought it would give some options to tenants.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
What makes this house unique
The location of the house was a large part of what we loved about this house. It is only 1 block off center street, so you can walk to downtown folly, the pier and most anything on the island in just a few short minutes. You can see the ocean from both units, inside as well as out. To be cooking in the kitchen downstairs and gaze out to the ocean is just great. Even though we have remodeled, the house still has a 'vintage' feel of an old beach house, which appeals to me as an antique dealer. The front porch downstairs and the deck upstairs also was such a plus for us. It is such fun to hang out on either porch and watch the comings and goings of all the 'folly' color....and yell 'wrong way' to all the cars that go the wrong way down our street. Bert's Market is the street behind us, (a local folly landmark and market), and every morning we cut through the back yard and go get our free coffee and eggroll if my little granddaughters are with me. Such a treat!!
