Tallest house on Folly Beach - Ocean view from every floor
This is a brand new custom built home directly across the street from beach access. Our 3600+ square foot three story house has all the furnishings you will need to enjoy a week away from it all. The high lot and elevated construction allow for wonderful beach and surf views from each floor of the house. With five additional porches located throughout the house totaling almost 1500 additional square feet, there is plenty of indoor and outdoor gathering places. Located only three blocks from downtown Folly Beach, this allows for walking into town for entertainment however located just far enough away to escape most foot traffic.
First Floor: The first floor contains a majority of the entertainment space including a custom kitchen with all state of the art appliances, a large open floor plan with an open dining room and family room area and a large flatscreen HD TV. There is a half bath located just off the kitchen/dining room. The large front porch allows for plenty of room to entertain, people watch and relax. Rocking chairs included too!
Also on the side of the first floor space is a huge screened in porch featuring seating for 16 in two separate seating areas, a grill, a wonderful outdoor tiled shower and an enclosed private bathroom. This is the place where most people tend to gather and enjoy the sound of the surf and views of the beachfront.
Additionally on the first floor, you will find one of two master bedrooms including a huge walk in closet and a large custom private bathroom. Also found on this floor is the laundry room.
Second and Third Floors: The second floor features two over sized bunk rooms. Each bunk room contains one Queen bed and two twin beds. One bunk room features two trundle beds in addition to the Queen and other twin beds and also has it own private ocean view balcony. Each bunk room contains it's own full bathroom. Also on the second floor, there is a large private sun deck to enjoy some time away from it all.
Our third floor features the second master bedroom as well as a walk in closet, large bath with jetted tub, and private deck. This third floor deck area is one of the highest points in all of Folly Beach and allows for panoramic views that must be seen to be believed!
An Ocean View Not To Miss from each floor of this wonderful home!
There is plenty of off street parking that can easily accommodate 8 cars.
We stayed here with a group of 10 girls and loved our trip! The house is great with so many outdoor entertaining areas and is in a fabulous location. Each room has a connected bathroom, which was perfect. Close proximity to downtown Charleston and the local Folly Beach area is great. Quick walk to the beach with amazing views from the house.
We just returned from a great week at Folly Beach with our immediate family. The house is a short walk to the beach. It's far enough from the pier so it's not too crowded. They are doing grading on the beach and it turned up a lot of rocks. The walk to town is only 3 blocks. The house is nice and floor plan is good. All bedrooms have large bathrooms. It sleeps 4 couples plus 2-6 children in single beds. View from 3rd floor is awesome but no elevator so would not recommend for elderly. The kitchen is great with a huge island and well stocked. Loved the screened porch with outdoor shower. TV in living room was good but a little difficult to use. Our sons had no problems with it. The house is nice but the decor is basic. Our only complaint was with mattresses and linens. We all thought the mattresses were below average in comfort. The linens provided by the service were also below average. Bring paper products, soap, etc. The property manager was very accommodating.
This is a great house for a large party but this house needs some love and attention. All of the walls are bare and the house comes with nothing except kitchen supplies. You have to bring everything from dishwasher detergent to hand soap for all of the bathrooms. Great location for downtown folly and the beach!!
We stayed at this house in April of 2014 - we were there for a wedding. Great location, close to the beach, walking distance to town and many good restaurants. Lovely views from the balconies. Lots of space and decent beds. Loved the side porch - very comfortable and was a great wind break. Nice appliances. That's the good stuff. The bad stuff: be aware that this house does not come with any paper products or even hand soap. It is in the contract, but I missed it - my fault, but everyone else we talked to who stayed at a rental at Folly Beach had those things provided. The slipcovers on the chairs were stained and filthy. Lots of the dishes were yucky and dirty and we had to wash almost everything we took out of the cupboards. There was a jellyfish in the garbage disposal. No chairs on the 2nd floor bedroom balconies - what a waste of space! No TV's in the 2nd floor bedrooms. NO instructions on how to operate TV's and most of us had trouble with them. No full length mirrors in the entire house, although I could stand on the tub in the 3rd floor master to see myself. A bunch of folks from our area were in town for a wedding, so we needed that! The owner could really improve this rental by putting up a few pieces of artwork too. Also - this was not a problem for us, but lots of stairs so if you have trouble going up and down stairs, this house is not for you. The property manager is very nice and we got our deposit back immediately.
Excellent Layout of the house especially for large group gatherings
Beds could be more comfortable
Property manager customer service
Not all balcony's have sitting chairs
Couldn't get TV's to work
Overall I would recommend this property to a friend. The location is within comfortable walking distance of both the town and beach. The floor plan of the main floor of the house is also set up perfectly for group gatherings. It was large enough all 13 of us could be in the same area without being crammed on top of each other. The main things I didn't like was that I was looking forward to using the balcony off the bedrooms and many didn't have any chairs, also the beds weren't quite as comfortable as I would have hoped for. (Still not awful though).
We came down to Folly for my husbands 30th birthday, we invited friends and family to stay with us and ended up having 12 people all together and were perfectly comfortable. We all were able to congregate in the living and kitchen area all together because it is so roomy. The layout is perfect with two Master bedrooms. Its a quick walk to the main strip on Folly, we never drove except for a cab into Charleston one day. We had a great time!
