Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Bring the whole family to the Sea Pearl! Or share it with good friends! This 2,800 sq. ft. home with five bedrooms and three full baths is just a two minute walk to the beach. It's been beautifully decorated throughout and is highlighted by a well stocked gourmet kitchen. Consider it the perfect place to begin happy vacation memories! There is a large yard made for active kids and a ground floor bedroom for those who find it difficult to climb stairs. Spend your afternoons in the comfortable screened porch and your evenings dining and star gazing on the upper deck. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, just one mile to Center Street.
Each bedroom is uniquely decorated with it's own theme!
The ground floor Nautical Room has a custom four poster queen bed and is just across from the downstairs full bath. Don't forget to look at the map featuring the lost treasures of the Bermuda Triangle and turn on the big brass lamp.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms:
Our Ocean Master, is ethereal and elegant. In a blue and green palette, the room is calming and classy with a fabulous antique desk, ocean inspired artwork, and flat screen TV with DVD. You will have a hard time getting out of this comfortable king bed, but if you must, head off to the Master Bath, that has a jetted tub and make some bubbles! (There is a separate shower in there too for the those of you who are non-soakers).
The Cottage room has original bead board walls and a queen size white iron bed. It has a sparkly pink crystal chandelier and lots of wicker and antique accents.
The Art Deco Room features antique mirrors and furniture from that period. The silver iron queen bed and dressing table make for a perfect place to primp for your fancy evening Downtown.
The Petite French Room (Also known as 'The Kids Room') may be the smallest of the bedrooms, but it is big on style. Inspired by the fleur di lis painted floors, the bright yellow and red room is anchored by a magnificent cherry chandelier and a cafe table for two. The twin trundle is great for little ones and big people alike, and sits below our 'blackboard' window. Scattered around the room are whimsical butterflies and sweet artwork that is calming and French inspired.
The Cottage Room, Deco Room and Petit French room share a separate full bath, located between the three rooms.
Other outstanding features of the home include: Full gourmet kitchen, outfitted to handle all of your vacation cooking needs. Want inspiration? There are some really good cookbooks on the shelves! There is a six burner professional stove, a stainless steel refrigerator, a microwave, dishwasher and a Keurig coffeemaker for you enjoy. Need some down-time activities in the kitchen? There are ocean themed cookie cutters and some sprinkles to enjoy!
There are two dining areas: The dining room which is adjacent to the living room, can seat up to eight people and has a bank of windows next to it. Open up the glass doors and you'll find a few Adirondack chairs and an outdoor gas grill.
The bright dinette is the houses headquarters! Plan your days over breakfast around this big table and host your board games in the evenings after dinner. It can also seat up to eight. We've stocked the house with quality dish and flat wear that beautifully matches the decor and makes for a pretty nice spread for your celebrations. Also located in the dinette are a few binders of activities to help plan your days and a box full of local menus of places to eat on Folly Beach. Also, there is collection of Charleston Magazine, a great reference guide. In the back of the magazine, they list some of the best restaurants in town. Yum!
So were biased, but the living room is WAY comfortable! You'll sink happily into our chairs and relax your way onto the couch for a calming nap as the big screen TV brings you DirecTV. We've also added some books, magazines and international travel art for you to look at.
The staircase going up to the second floor features 11 architectural prints from famous homes in Charleston. It's fun to go visit the locations of the homes downtown, snap a photo and then bring it back to the original plan and see what's changed in a hundred years or so!
Just outside is a screened in patio with comfortable outdoor furniture, cafe table, hammock rope swing and children's chairs.
An upstairs deck is outfitted with a large dining table and umbrella. There is a covered swing for two that will sway you as you read a good book and sip some tea. There is a nice breeze up there and it's a great place to star-gaze in the evenings.
The large backyard has an old fashioned tire swing, play structure, picnic table and lots of room to roam for a game of croquet, perhaps? In addition, we've added an outdoor shower for getting all that beach sand off you or for just a good cool down!
The Sea Pearl is someplace you'll want to visit again and again. It's a great central hub for all your vacation activities, while still offering you a private, stylish and comfortable home to relax and entertain in.

About Lisa and Jerry
Originally from Venice Beach, California, the Jewel family searched seven years before finding their beach paradise in South Carolina. The house was perfect for our large family get-together's. We spent months renovating and decorating to maintain the original charm of this 1950's beach house while updating it with modern conveniences and luxuries. We've made great friends in the area, found our favorite foody haunts, and walked the sand countless times. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Lisa and Jerry purchased this house in 2011
Why Lisa and Jerry chose Folly Beach
Folly Beach has a great laid back atmosphere while still easily accessible to the sophistication and history of Charleston.
What makes this house unique
We have equipped this home for fun and relaxation. For the youngsters and the young at heart, we've got an awesome play structure, old fashioned tire swing, lots of children's books and games. New this year - an outdoor chalkboard! For those in need or R&R we've got a jetted tub in the master, DirecTV and hammock chair swing on the screened porch. Restaurants and beach rentals are just a mile away and Charleston is just a 20 minute drive.
Most importantly, the Sea Pearl feels like loved home and less like a sparse rental unit.
Here are some of the activities that our family enjoys while we are there...Walking on the sand in the morning, gathering shells on our way to get our lattes at Black Magic Coffee or our breakfast at The Lost Dog Cafe.
Visiting the Folly Beach Pier for souvenirs at the County Park Store or renting fishing equipment.
Riding our bikes around the island (Who needs a golf cart?)
Boogie boarding in the late afternoon before dinner at Taco Boy.
Discover local Geocashes - kind of like a no-cost treasure hunt.
Going to James Island County Park's water park for kids.
Taking a carriage tour downtown.
Ordering the popcorn bowl at Cinebarre Theaters in Mt. Pleasant.
Going to the Farmers Market
Taking a boat ride and seeing the dolphins.
Getting a baby sitter and going down to Center Street to hear a great band.
Strolling King Street and going into boutiques and antique stores.
