CARLDOT COTTAGE ON FRONT BEACH FOLLY

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-6)

The CarlDot is located at 809 W. Ashely Ave Folly Beach, S.C. It is a true front beach bungalow. Although Folly Island is slowly losing its village atmosphere due to development. The CarlDot Cottage is one of the few still existing on Folly's front beach. The cottage was constructed in 1938. When parking automobiles on the beach was permitted, Carlton and Dorothy were dating in 1939. They first discovered the cottage while walking on the beach. A year later in 1940, they married. They acquired their dream cottage in 1960. I was eight at that time. Folly was my summer dream. The pavilion stood with a ferris wheel and rides. The dance hall out over the ocean entertained crowds with great live band performances. Such greats were Temptations, Zodiacs, Drifters,Tams and the list goes on!

A Charleston brick fireplace,interior walls 1X12 knotty cypress(except kitchen),17 porch windows let in ocean breeze,ocean deck on sand dunes,full deck on front beach side,deck off kitchen w/gas grill.

Although the pavilion is no longer there, the cottages on front beach during that era are slowly disappearing and being replaced with huge constructions. The CarlDot still has it's charm. The main room has a beautiful Charleston brick fireplace. The interior walls in the cottage are all 1x12 knotty cypress. The two bedrooms are both large. With the constant sound of the ocean nearby, the front porch has 17 windows to let in the ocean breeze. The existing kitchen and bath were recently removed. Six pilings were added to support a huge kitchen and bath. There is a deck off the kitchen for grilling. There is a huge deck on the front of the windowed porch. Also, there is a deck on the dunes for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The cottage has central heat and air-conditioning. All rooms have tiled floors. The CarlDot cottage sleeps six comfortably. Once you stay, you will definitely want to come back again.

Staying here is truly a gift

  • 5 of 5
Can't brag enough about this humble little home-there is more character and charm tucked away in this beach house than in all the others up or down the beach from it. We had a great week, enjoyed the fresh seafood cooked right in our own kitchen as well as the local restaurants in town. I caught fish from the surf, listened to the rain at night, relished in the sound of the ocean and watched the sunrises with a cup of coffee every morning. I'm not embarrassed to say that my wife and I felt like kids again with our dogs picking up on the atmosphere, enjoying the long walks on the beach and to the marina. Butterflies stopped by in the backyard by the dozens. The birds visited their feeder from dawn till dusk. Thank you Rick and Lori for sharing this classic beach home with us. Again, it was truly a gift that we appreciate and that we hope to return to again.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The CarlDot! The property description is quite accurate. The location is excellent and the property, old & charming as it may be, has everything you need!

It was extremely clean, which we really appreciated! The owners were wonderful to deal with--easy to reach via email & communicative.

We appreciated there being a full set of dishes, more than one pot & pan, as well as a wide variety of spices on top of all of the other items other visitors have mentioned (in previous reviews).

The location simply cannot be beat!

Highly recommend The CarlDot!

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

  • 5 of 5
I am sorry it took so long to write this review. We fell in love with this cottage the second we walked through the door - no joke! The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness. As we walked around indoors to get settled in, I noticed much more was included than was mentioned. (air mattress, tons of extra blankets and pillows, some food products in the cabinets, including coffee filters and sweeteners, wine glasses, laundry detergent, hand soap, a whole little cabinet in the bathroom with extra shampoos and lotions, etc.) The outdoor grill is very nice and was filled with propane. There were even a couple of boogey boards and two beach chairs on the sunporch for our use. The beds were comfortable as well. The sunporch is very nice. The back deck includes a patio set with an umbrella. Now, THE BEST PART: the backyard!! I admit, I had my doubts about the beach being within feet of the cottage - but it is true!!! The backyard is totally private. We had coffee out on the back porch as well as the private deck that is at the end of the property. We saw dolphins playing our very first morning as we were having coffee! The only other people on the beach are people staying in surrounding cottages - Very few people. One morning as we were walking, we saw fresh sea turtle slides in the sand. They had come up to lay eggs during the night and then "slid" back out to sea. The eggs are protected by orange fencing. We thought that was pretty amazing. The cottage is also in a nice location and not too far of a walk to the shopping and restaurant strip. It is very walkable, depending on the heat. We loved the added touch of the journal for all the guests to write in and the book on Folly Beach; we had to buy our own copy!! We also liked the personal touches of the owners' pictures placed throughout the cottage. We had an absolute fabulous time here and plan to make it our family vacation every year! Thank you to the Fox's for sharing your home with us. We will be back!

Amazing Home on Folly!

  • 5 of 5
We loved, loved, loved our stay at the CarlDot! Everything we could possibly need was available. We spent most of our time on the deck and screened in sun room. Every morning and evening we would walk to the point to see what the fishermen had caught. This was the first truly relaxing vacation we have had. Thank you so, so much for sharing your home. We hope to visit every year.

In a word, "Perfect"

We came from Indiana to our son's graduation from MUSC and to savor some family time instead of just rushing through another chapter of our lives, as we too often do. The property description was totally accurate, the property was clean and the location could not have been better. We really enjoyed walking about a mile down the beach to Loggerhead Bar and Grill. For us, no internet was a plus b/c it gave us a chance to be a bit "unplugged" for a few days. The lovely perennials in the yard added to the charm of the cottage. I especially enjoyed the bird seed left on the back porch to fill the bird feeder. Totally relaxing yet never a dull moment. We hated to leave. Would highly recommend this rental and hope we can return in the future. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Karen - I am so glad you & your family enjoyed your stay at the CarlDot. The way you described everything. Could not have been worded better. Congratulations on your son's completing MUSC. I was a category one. Arriving at MUSC in 2000 from a motorcycle accident. Needless to say they saved my life. Your mentioning the perennials in the yard was neat. They all starting popping up a year after Mom passed. She loved her vacations at the CarlDot bungalow.
Wishing You & your Family the Best, Rick Fox

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The "CarlDot" cottage is a little piece of heaven hiding in Folly Beach SC! My husband and I were lucky enough to spend the month of February here enjoying all the sites and sounds of living on the ocean. Rick and Lori are wonderful hosts and the cabin is clean, comfortable and well equipped. We have rented in other states for our yearly vacation but this was by far the most comfortable, clean and homey place we have ever stayed in. If you are thinking about renting in Folly Beach - THIS IS THE PLACE!!
Thank you Rick and Lori for allowing us to stay there.
