Folly Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

***SCAM ALERT! We do not advertise on Craigslist. If you have been directed here from there, inquire directly through this page, and do not respond to the scam ad on Craigslist***

**COURTESY DISCLAIMER: A new restaurant has opened across the street from this unit; the establishment has a courtyard and often features live acoustic music. Depending on a person's temperament, this could be an asset or an irritation. There is one bedroom on the street side that can be affected by the noise, and the second bedroom is across the hall (king bed, and bunks) and is isolated from the street noise.**

Enjoy Folly Beach in this beautiful, newly renovated sister unit to 'Designer Rental by the Beach'. Like its sibling, it also features heart pine flooring throughout, a Sony 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Theater with HD DirectTV (featuring a 42' Sony Bravia wall-mounted HDTV and a top-of-the-line Blu Ray/DVD player), Wi-Fi and free long distance calls, all brand new appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator and a Frigidaire gas oven/range and dishwasher, tons of natural light, and an eclectic mix of comfortable designer furniture and decor.

The layout is extremely spacious, with the living room, dining area and kitchen area all connecting together without walls. There is a large porch out front, and a small one out back, from which you can see the ocean. A great place to find some solitude.

The unit is located right behind Bert's Market, which is the local 24 hour grocery store, so if you arrive and find you are missing something, odds are Bert's will have it, and you are only footsteps away. (We can also arrange to have your unit PRESTOCKED with groceries. Just mention it.) You are also only one block from Center St., the heart of Folly Beach's commercial district, with a great variety of shopping and delicious food. Don't forget to visit the pier!

Oh, and if you have more than 6 people, but less than 14, you can rent our sister unit we mentioned earlier, 'Designer Rental by the Beach', as well as this unit as 1 collective compound. Both units share a large front porch and together they have 5 bedrooms and sleep a total of 14 people (5 queen beds and 2 bunk beds). Just let us know you're interested in both units when you talk with us!

About The Owner

Omar & Julia are year round Folly Beach residents. Besides managing their rental properties, they own and operate Bert's Market, the only grocery store on Folly Beach. They have one daughter, Evelyn, and are expecting a new addition in January 2011.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1994

Why The Owner chose Folly Beach

Folly Beach is one of those hidden gems...a place that seemingly hasn't been touched by the rest of the world. Its charm is one of a kind!

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful weather year round, the constant sound of the ocean, and convenience of Bert's right around the corner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay! My group really enjoyed this space. It's very comfortable, happy and hip! The location could not get any better. I will definitely book this condo the next time I'm in the area.

Perfect stay at Folly!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this rental is perfect! My husband and 2 kids and I chose this spot for my 40th birthday extravaganza. From the beautiful decor, to the proximity to the ocean, to the walking distance to everything Folly has to offer this spot is perfect! We packed full coolers of groceries, snacks and drinks for our week which was completely unnecessary because we were right above Bert's Market which has EVERYTHING you need 24/7. There is a cute little outdoor bar, Chico Feo, that plays music right across the street which was never too loud to sleep or to disturb sleeping children, but is perfect for sitting on the back porch, listening to the sounds and people watching while enjoying the ocean breeze. This is a big plus for parents of young children that miss the night life, but would rather stay home. It's the best of both worlds! The music and patrons were never too loud. The property is immaculate with the softest pillows and sheets imaginable. They also provide beach towels. Not that it rained while we were there, but if it did we would have had plenty to keep us occupied with full Direct TV and access to Netflix. While here make sure to visit the Lost Dog Cafe and Taco Boy right around the corner. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. I came home and started redesigning our home to reflect the colorful, industrial decor of the best beach house on Folly! Thank you Omar and Julia!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week staying in this apartment. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. And the convenience was unbeatable - 1 1/2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from most of the restaurants in Folly, easy walk to Bert's market and easy walk to outdoor bar across the street. We only got in the car when we needed to go to Charleston or the grocery store. The live music from the bar across the street was great. We highly recommend!

Perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5
We almost hate to write this review (rather keep it to ourselves). We love this place & Folly!

Both the condo, and the owners, are Folly Beach treasures. We had all the comforts of home on a beautiful beach with the added bonus of renting from a couple who genuinely cared about their property & comfort of guests.

This was our first time in Folly and we booked it without knowing much about the area (except in relation to Charleston). We like charming properties that offer privacy; this place delivered in a big way. It truly felt like home.

The condo is beautifully decorated with attention to details that are rarely found in rentals. Their pictures do not lie; what you see is what you get. We figured the rental couldn't live up to the photos posted, but it was even better. I can't say enough about how we loved the experience of being there: open spaces, hardwood floors, well-appointed kitchen and dining areas, spacious bedrooms, outdoor patios, laundry, & artsy decor. Blissful!

We had only a 2 minute walk to the beach, the pier, downtown, the farmer's market, etc.

Omar was very helpful and responded to our needs quickly. When a minor inconvenience arose (i.e. Netflix not working on our first day), he came and replaced it within a couple hours. Not only did he fix the problem, but he replaced it with Apple TV. He said he and Julia understood the importance of "binge-watching your shows" on vacation. We truly appreciated these down-to-earth and responsive owners!

When booking, we saw on a previous review that a couple of former guests had mentioned a noise problem at night. We wondered if this would be an issue for us. It wasn't. There is an outdoor bar/restaurant across the street (Chico Feo) that had live music on 5/7 days we were there. The band did not play late and we enjoyed the music (and people-watching) from the back porch. We found the condo to be secure and quiet.

A bit about us to contextualize our comments: We are a lesbian couple in our 40s - a chef and a professor. Also, during our stay, our Dad came to visit for a few days. He thoroughly enjoyed the music, Bert's Market, the beach and the short drive to Charleston.

It is so convenient to have access to a 24-7 Market downstairs. You never know when you're going to need a piece of salted caramel cheesecake, some deviled eggs, a sushi roll, a book, a guitar pick, or bandaids - if you need it, they'll have it.

Thank you, Omar & Julia! We've already started planning our next trip.

It was Fun

  • 4 of 5
We had a very nice time at Folly Beach. The condo was very nice and well decorated. It was convenient to have the little 24 hour Red and White store underneath for items that we needed at any time. Omar and Julie were personable and welcoming to us and our guests. We have some minor complaints: 1) No condiments. We have rented many times through the years and every home had at least salt and pepper available. 2) There wasn't enough silverware. Especially spoons and forks. We had to wash them all the time. 3) There is a bar and grill across the street, they played great music, but it was very loud and even played late, late into the night. However, we enjoyed the condo overall. It was very close to the beach and within walking distance to the downtown area.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5
We just got back from our first trip to Folly Beach. We had a great time at the beach. This unit was very nicely decorated and comfortable. The art work was great and made the condo feel high end.
The only thing that is not made clear is that the unit is right on top of Berts Market which was great when we needed something but not so great when deliveries were made at the store at 3am one night and 2am the other. Was very loud and disruptive to those of us that love our sleep. Not a huge deal but would hope that this would be made clearer in the description.
Was very loud especially on Saturday night of our arrival...
Folly Beach was easy to walk around to different places and we felt very safe having our daughter and her friend walk to and from the town center and the pier. Good trip and we would definitely consider coming back to Folly Beach!

Owner's Response: Hi Ron and Laura,

Thanks for staying with us and for your review. We are so sorry about the inconvenience of the truck deliveries and for lack of clarity regarding the location of the units; we recently launched the deli that we have in the store, and it is our new food-service suppliers that are coming in the middle of the night. That has just started in the last month and a half or so since launch. I will talk with my wife and we will see what possibilities we have to make deliveries work while maintaining the comfort of our guests...including if we have to get with their transportation times and arrange different delivery dates/times. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Please keep us in mind for future visits.

The owners are great; the place is clean which is perfect since I have asthma/allergies; and everything is nicely decorated to feel homey. Beds & furniture comfortable. High end kitchen. I couldn't think of a better place to stay. Very quick walk to the beach and downtown with your own private parking. Everything you could want. The kids loved the bunk beds. Can't wait to come back again! Thank you so much for everything!!!
