RARE MARSH AND OCEAN VIEW 5 BEDROOM BEACH HOME (WEEKLY SAT/SAT)

Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 12)

This home will offer you a very rare, best of both worlds Folly beach experience, situated between the marsh and the ocean. The house has decks, front and back, both levels. The back decks have views of the marshes, folly river, the folly lighthouse and Charleston, but most memorable of all are the sultry sunsets and sometimes… after dark the fireworks in Charleston. There is a tidal canal in back with a crabbing dock – a dolphin has been seen cruising up and down this very canal! The front porches have views of the ocean and on the second floor are open to the night sky and the incredible number of stars. Access to the beach is directly across the street. This home has been completely updated this year, with a well stocked kitchen including an icemaker, lots of outdoor living spaces and a pool table. This is a weekly rental (Sat/Sat Only)

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Tim or Susan Johnson

The picture posted is our family photo of all the 'cousins' from our get together last year. As the kids were growing up we spent every summer on the beach along the southern seaboaad - making lots of memories, as my mother-in-law so aptly expresses it. We hope that you will have a wonderful experience in our home and this will become a cherished memory for your family too.

Tim or Susan Johnson purchased this house in 2012

Why Tim or Susan Johnson chose Folly Beach

This all started with our love of Charleston, the historic scenic small but cosmopolitan city. We have been travelling there for over 15 years, exploring, eating, shopping and just hanging out. And then there's Folly, with it's eclectic group of surfers and hippies and BMWs, mansions and shacks. Everyone is super friendly and there is always an unusual experience to be had. While the house is the best of beach and marsh the location is the best of city and beach - juxtaposition - right?

What makes this house unique

You will be lost in the views of the marshes, they simply wash over you and make you forget all your worries and put you squarely in the present, in this moment - where there is no better place to be. Pure relaxation.

Excellent Home in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautiful house in an ideal location. The ocean is across the street and the marsh is in the backyard. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house had everything you could need. There was only one issue - the bathrooms needed a deep cleaning. Two of the shower curtains were moldy; the grout was likewise fairly black in places. Otherwise, everything was fabulous and despite the cleanliness issue, I'd rent it again.

Owner's Response: Hi Dara - We are glad you liked our home as much as we do. We are very disappointed about the cleaning issue. Due to the issues we had last summer we hired someone who only cleans our house so we have a direct line of communication. Apparently she was out sick before your stay and someone else did the cleaning and failed to notice the state of the shower curtains. In the future you can call the property manager and they will come out and address issues like this. As to the grout issue, maintenance is being sent in to remove and replace it. Once the grout fails the cleaners are not able to get to the mold because it sits behind the grout. In any case - thanks for your feedback - this is the only way we can continually improve our visitors experience. We are searching again for an alternate cleaning service until we get it right and our house gets the 5 star review we think it deserves.

Amazing location and views

  • 5 of 5
Although we had cold weather and rain most of our trip, we were lucky to be in this amazing home. The pool table was a savior! The views of the ocean as well as the canal were breathtaking-hard to find a house with both so close. The short walk to the beach was perfect with a toddler. The pier, fort and basketball hoop were also fun ammenities. The layout was perfect for grandparents on first floor and everyone else above (another hard to find feature). Being at the end of folly was less busy yet still such a quick trip to town. We would definitely rent this home again!

Better than advertised

  • 4 of 5
Great place, fantastic condition, and easy-to-work-with renters. I'll stay here again when visiting Folly.

BTW, the owners manual is spot on with its recommendations for things to do and places to eat.

Stay at Folly beach rental

  • 3 of 5
I was extremley satisfied with location, home, appliances. The photos online did not give the home justice, it was beautiful compared to the pictures. But as for clean, it was dirty and having a baby crawling he was filthy from the floor and lots of dust. Counter tops were not wiped. Other than that I would recomend family and friends and myself to stay there again. But if to do so I will be comlplaining of there cleaning service! I just didn't have time to deal with that, I was there for a wedding and in it and had no time....

Awesome Folly House!!!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I visit Folly Beach every year and have stayed at several other houses on the island..this house is by far the best one yet!! The views from the porches are picture perfect!!! We hardly left the upper porch swing!! Literally a stone's throw from the ocean! Fully stocked kitchen and plenty of space..we couldn't have asked for anything better! Thanks so much for sharing your little slice of paradise!! We will be back!

lovely home

  • 4 of 5
It was a very upsetting check in the house was lovely the views are awesome however we found the house dirty the floors were dirty the furniture was dusty the bathroom floors were dirty the kitchen sinks were very unclean with pieces of food in them the living room tv did not work the linen we received had clumps of black hair in the towels. When I called to complain they tried to tell me the dirty floors were from us checking in which was not the case, they said the towels sometimes come out of the dryer with hair in them I found that to be unacceptable, so we really had to clean when we checked in very disappointing also we had to wash the linen. They did send a very nice gentleman to fix the tv and he came promptly had us setup in no time. I doubt we will return to this beautiful home only because of the rental agency and their very poor customer service in all the years I have been renting beach homes this was my first disappointment.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that the experience was so upsetting with our property manager. We have spoken with the owner of Holland Realty and provided them with this feedback - this is not the experience we expect our guests to have. Holland has agreed to add a named property manager to our property who will conduct pre-inspections prior to our guests arrival to ensure this will not happen in the future.
