WALK TO TOWN AND THE BEACH! WITHIN 1 BLOCK!!

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

We want to preserve our history on Folly Beach and pride ourselves on using reclaimed objects to design our property. The 'Seacret Cottage' is tucked away amongst the trees for a private and secluded feel. Yet, it is less than a half block to the shops & restaurants. The three block walk to the beach takes only approx. 5 minutes. We are only 10 miles East of Historic Downtown Charleston, SC with superb dining, shopping and numerous family oriented activities.

About Tom Powers

We (Michael and Christy) have lived on Folly Beach for approx. 10 years. We fell in love with the Island and are passionate about maintaining Folly's 'old beach feel'. Both of us love the character and history of Folly's old beach cottages and often use reclaimed objects when renovating cottages. To share our experience, we decided to rent our newly renovated cottage. Folly Beach is like no other beach. Come and get that 'Folly Feel' for yourself!

Tom Powers purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tom Powers chose Folly Beach

Built about 3 years ago. Clean, adorable and cozy cottage nestled in the trees for privacy but close, 5 minute walk, to shops, restaurants and the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Close to restaurants and bars but buffered from the noise of late night music and partying. Owners truly care for all of our guests and do as much as possible to make your stay great!

The Perfect Alternative

  • 5 of 5
If you find yourself looking to stay a few nights at Folly Beach, I would highly recommend this cottage. We were met and provided parking directly in front of the property and enjoyed each night of our stay. It is small enough to make you appreciate home, but large enough to allow you to appreciate the beach community. Seemingly in the middle of everything, this cottage is tucked away and above the street level providing ample privacy and convenience. In the truest sense of the word, it was an "awesome" experience compared to the hotel route.

Paying for Proximity

  • 4 of 5
I titled this review “paying for proximity” because you are right in the thick of it when staying at the Seacret Cottage. Given the location, we were able to easily and quickly walk everywhere during our two day stay, not having to drive once. The beach and bars/restaurants are literally one to two blocks away. Very conveniently located on Folly. The cottage itself was very clean and it provided us with everything we could want in a two day stay. The only reason I’m not giving this cottage 5 stars is due to the sleeping arrangements. We knew going into this rental that we would be loft sleeping and were excited about it, but for us; I’m 5’10” and she’s 5’7”, we still found the bed too short at the end due to the angle of the ceiling. So if you are considering this for a rental, be aware of that, otherwise we have nothing but great things to say and you/your family will really enjoy it.

Our fabulous trip to Folly!

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. This place was perfect for my husband, myself and our dog. Loft bed a little too small for my 6 ft husband, but Futon was suprisingly comfy. So very clean and so charming. Located so close to shops, restaurants and the beach and at the same time you are nestled in the trees and have the feeling of complete privacy. Owners were wonderful and even took us on a tour of the beautiful "big house". Amazing!! Can't wait til renovations are complete and can come back for a family vacation at our favorite home away from home!!

WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS COTTAGE IMMEDIATELY, THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN FOLLY BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Folly Beach and this cottage was absolutely beautiful and perfect for me and my partner. The cottage has everything that you need and is in the PERFECT LOCATION to everything. We walked everywhere while we were there; shopping, to the beach, to the shops, to the night time local bars and restaurants. The cottage is very private and quiet and nestled in beautiful palm trees and has it's on private fence and porch for you to enjoy. This is BY FAR the best priced place in Folly Beach to stay and we will definitely be back several times this year to stay at this place. The owners are wonderful and very nice and acommodating and so easy to work with for checking in and checking out. We HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone if you truly want a great Folly Beach experience and the best price around. Already planning when we are going to come back in a few months.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, cozy, charming, tiny home! Be sure you can climb up to the loft....I am a single older female, and I had no problem. My children loved the place when they came to visit, briefly, as it is small! Great place for single or couple. Owners very thoughtful, kitchen very well equipped. Front gate a little difficult to maneuver....but great property, great location, well-maintained and attractive entry.

great place to chill

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in Folly. This place is small but sweet with your own back deck with fan, access to bikes for cruising around the isle. If you're over 6' forget the loft bed and used to futon in living room which is adequate but not the most comfortable of bed. Owner are cool. Will help if needed but stay out of sight.
