Folly Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 BR King & Queen, 3 BA - sleeps up to 4 in 2 beds - total max. occupancy 4

Light airy end unit featuring hardwood floors and 12' ceilings in newest upscale community in the heart of Folly Beach. Known for its eclectic mix of inhabitants Folly has long been attractive to the artist community as well as being one of the best surfing areas on the east coast. This is an ideal eclectic getaway in a lower density, well designed complex with Caribbean flair. Suitable for 1-2 couples or small family, well behaved canine family members are welcome when responsible adult to child+dog ratio is 1:1 or better. Peaceful, perfectly situated location away from the hustle and bustle of front beach party atmosphere, yet only a 7 minute stroll to beach and fishing pier, and 5 minutes to Center Street restaurants and entertainment. Two beach cruiser bicycles provided for environmentally friendly island excursions. Folly is also a wonderful kayaking area, public landing 2 blocks away. Electric piano to fine tune your compositions or practice your vocals. Historic Charleston with all its charm is only 10 miles away.

Clean and Green: Folly is said to have the cleanest air on the east coast, give your body the gift of a fresh air infusion, relax and unwind.

Spacious... room to be together.. room to be apart: We've not converted the small study into a dedicated less desirable 3rd bedroom as is often done, electing to retain it as a multi-use space instead. Our guests are generally more mature adults seeking better quality accommodations and a more open relaxed atmosphere. Study includes yoga mat etc. as well as a full size drafting table enabling accommodation of other pursuits. There is also a sofa should you have an extra family member joining you for a day or two. This room is truly meant as another space to retreat, design, think and read, not meant to be pressed into full service as sleeping accommodation for a full week. However, in a pinch, for a couple nights it'll do nicely.

GUEST COMMENTS and ONLINE COST ESTIMATOR: See our supplemental webpage for a wealth of add'l info. including scans of guest comments, floor plans, online cost estimator, area info., etc. Link is just above the photos about 3/4 of the way down the page. Also, to help assure that you receive responses from us in a timely manner, please check your spam folder if you've not heard from us in 24 hours after sending an inquiry.

If you have special needs or wish to know if we have this or that available, please ask. This is truly our second home and we furnished it with our own needs, use and taste in mind. Our goal is not to be a bunkhouse in continuous turnover, but to be able to offer use of our home to other thoughtful active folks who will enjoy this space and the respite it offers.

SUNDAY TO SUNDAY WEEKLY RENTAL - (maximum occupancy of 4)

Canine companion animals only. No cats, owner allergic.

About Michael & Cheryl

Michael is a lifelong resident of the Charleston area and has always enjoyed the water oriented activities this beautiful coastal area has to offer.

Michael & Cheryl purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Michael & Cheryl chose Folly Beach

We originally chose this townhome as a second residence as Folly has exceptionally clean air and I needed to escape the effects of the heaviest spring pollens at home. We are now able to share our townhome year round as I am no longer forced to flee.

What makes this townhome unique

We strive to keep our home suitable for sensitive individuals by cleaning with natural products and essential oils as well as avoiding chemical sprays etc. Chemical scent free laundry detergent as well as chemical free air freshener and insect repellent provided. We ask that guests refrain from using artificially scented products while in residence. If advice is needed as to where to obtain naturally scented products we're glad to assist.

With the county boat landing just a couple blocks away, it's convenient to go for a quick paddle on a whim, the back side of Folly offers wonderful places to kayak. We never know what we're going to see. The island is also a great place to jog and bicycle, plus miles and miles of beach to enjoy. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water makes beach excursions so much more convenient and really does minimize sand inside. The location is prefect, not in the hub bub of front beach activity, yet an easy walk to beach access and to restaurants etc. on Center Street.

ↂ ALL NATURAL GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS

ↂ LOW TO NO PESTICIDE USE

…..ↁ baits & plant based pesticide used only if required

…..ↁ essential oil steam mopping is our most effective deterrent

ↂ WIRELESS INTERNET can be deactivated (others close though)

ↂ TV via cable, not satellite

ↂ no toxic 'wrinkle free' sheets & no linen service used, we do all

ↂ no falling asleep to the smell and effects of bleached linens, dryer sheets, fabric softeners

ↂ linens washed and dried in machines free of chemicals/synthetic scents

ↂ chlorine filters on showers

ↂ filtered water in fridge and ice-maker

ↂ no synthetic scents

ↂ no smoking

ↂ pets considered - canines only

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast!!



Your home is wonderful. We loved the artwork and furnishings. It felt like we were at our own home! Thank you so much for sharing this amazing space with us. We will most definitely be back for future visits. Next time possibly with one of our "babies."



Hope the rest of the summer is smashing!

Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We did not know what to expect but our expectations were fulfilled and more. The property is exceptionally clean and well maintained and beautifully furnished in every way, Park your car and leave it there for your entire stay unless you wish to make the 15 minute drive to Charleston. A short walk to the beach and every restaurant on the island. We would absolutely recommend staying here and hope to return ourselves.

Superb house in Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5
After driving for 22 hours with two kids we were really hoping the house would be as nice as the pictures. It was even better! Not only are Cheryl and Michael really nice and easy to deal with, but the house is just perfect. Close enough to the beach to walk, but not too close so it still feels really private. Really nicely furnished with all the amenities and very well maintained. We felt like the owners really cared about us and wanted to make sure we had the best stay possible. And they have succeeded, the kids are already asking when we are coming back to "their house" on "their beach"!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay at this condo in early April 2013. The owners were great to work with and they were extremely helpful. The condo was beautiful, super clean, relaxing, and close to everything.The decor and furnishings were top notch and it made you feel right at home. The dog bath was extremely helpful when coming off the beach with the dog.
Look forward to staying there again!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second visit to this wonderful home. It is immaculately maintained and so close to everything. Having bikes there to use is quite handy to explore. It's a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and pier. We just love staying at this home. I always sleep like a baby in the king size tempurepedic bed. We can't wait for our next visit. I love working with the owners and feel like I'm working with longtime friends. They are very easy to work with, caring, helpful, and honest.

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We've traveled a bunch and this was one of our best vacations. Our only regret is that we only stayed for one week. The listing description and the photos of this property are exactly as they appear, and if you're looking for clean this is the place. We're clean freaks and upon arrival it was spotless.
Michael and Cheryl (property owners) are spot on and didn't miss an amenity detail.
After a day we felt like we lived there.
If you're looking for a clean,seamless, laid back, enjoyable beach vacation - look no further.

Got allergies?? Look no further!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time staying in this truly "Chemical free" town home. If you suffer from allergies - this is the best place we have ever found! Cheryl also has everything you need when taking your pet, even a special sofa that our dog "Ginger" absolutely loved! My husband and I will definitely be staying here on future visits to Folly.

Folly was always the bohemian destination, some of us were lucky enough to live front beach while it was still a sleepy artist community. Much has changed over the years but Folly holds true to its laid back attitude. Though we admit as things have evolved, we prefer a location a bit back from the activity of front beach especially in the summer months. It's a peaceful location and convenient to historic Charleston which is only 10 miles away. Folly has 6 wonderful miles of beach to walk, especially nice in winter, and is one of the best surfing areas on the east coast. If you're into kayaks the back side of the island is a wonderful place to explore with ample peaceful waters to quietly escape into and observe the native creatures. It's a wonderful place for birding, watching the dolphin feed at sunset, and if you're lucky you may even see a manatee. Bring your kayaks, the public boat landing is just 2 blocks away and there is plenty of room in the garage to store your gear.

Other Activities: boating, kayaking, shopping
