About Charles

Our beach home has been in our family for decades. We grew up in the Charleston area. My Mom first purchased the unit as beach rental property, then retired in the home in the mid 1990's. I am the second generation owner. Please enjoy our home with your family and friends.

Charles purchased this house in 1948

Why Charles chose Folly Beach

My Mom purchased this property in 1948 as a single, twenty year old based on the recommendations of her Pastor. Reverend Pridgen had purchased a beach front home five lots away and felt this would be a great investment. I grew up changing the sheets and mowing the grass every Saturday morning in the summer. My mom rented the home for $75 per week.

What makes this house unique

2104- New microwave, LG washing machine, Smart TVs(2), Tankless gas water heater, estate dining table. February 2013 Renovations-New wood flooring in all bedrooms, quiet ceiling fans, red metal roof, new furniture in the front room & upstairs' bedroom, re-insulated home, new efficiency toilets with new lighting, sink/vanity, cabinets in bathrooms, repainted upstairs' bedroom, upgraded fire alarms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been enjoying Folly for the past six years and our two weeks this year were no different- absolutely wonderful! The weather was gorgeous and we took full advantage of it each day. We patiently watched the 13 turtle nests on the beach hoping to witness a "hatching and journey back to the sea." The "babies" were not ready during our stay. We picked up the ocean's treasures near the light-house and at the state park. Our 10yr old and his father went out fishing from Charleston Harbor and he caught a 4 ft shark-reeled him in alone! Our 18 yr old, 10 yr old and father spent a day kayaking and fishing along the Wando River with their guide-great dad and son time. Fourth of July fireworks were beautiful. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We had enough room for us all to be together and enough for each of us to have our own quiet time. The little white lights around the porch and palm tree add just the right amount of "whimsy." Great deck at night. Our bodies remain in Irmo, SC but, our hearts are always at Folly.

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We arrived just as Gigi was finishing the cleaning and she went over the particulars with us and said Charles would be calling soon. Five minutes later...Charles called and went over other things I needed to know to make our stay comfortable. I have to say just about everything has been thought out. There was a notebook about the island, history of the house, plenty of cookware, a grill, extra pillows and blankets...all the comforts you don't get staying in a hotel. The front deck was an every night hang out for us and was very enjoyable. Most vacation homes in this setting seem to have little bugs but Charles' home had none I could see.....great job Gigi! My wife and other family would highly recommend this home and these people for your vacation. Thank Charles and Gigi

Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5
We spent a most enjoyable week at Charles's property. The beach is across the street, by August the water is like a bathtub but still refreshing, and the city is a short car ride away. Folly Beach is a quirky, off-beat place with easy access to nearby beaches and lots of natural resources to take advantage of. The house is comfortable, cool (literally, which is important in SC) and spacious.

Thank you Charles for providing such a spacious, well maintained, nicely equipped and comfortable home where we completely enjoyed our family's Folly Beach vacation. We were very kindly welcomed by Gigi when we arrived. Your home was sparkling. You truly go the extra mile for your guests and we appreciated your efforts very much. We were so surprised when a new dryer was delivered. It made keeping towels beach ready very enjoyable! Thanks again, and we hope to be back in 2015.

Everything As Described

  • 5 of 5
We spent the last week of July at Charles' very nice home on Folly Beach. Access to beach was just a few steps across the street. The home worked out great for our family of 9 adults. Very comfortable home and well stocked kitchen. We had a great time on Folly and in Charleston. Highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to get away to comfortable surroundings with the beach virtually right out the front door. Charles and Gigi were very accommodating and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved the area - first time visitors to Folly Beach and Charleston. Fine dining at High Cotton in Charleston - excellent! Also ate at The Surf Club (walkable from the house) and Rita's (also walkable) in Folly Beach. Both had excellent food and service. We used the brand new gas grill at the house a couple times. Had excellent meals at the house. Our last night there, we had made arrangements for "The Smoking Pot" to provide a low-country boil on premises. Andrew and Andrew were great. They bring everything from tables and chairs to plates and silverware and prepared everything at the house. All we needed to provide were drinks and our appetites. We included a blue crab appetizer for which they set up a stand-up table in the back yard and taught us the proper way to crack open whole blue crab. The boil included shrimp, sausage and potatoes. They set up tables on the front deck of the house. It was a great way to end our vacation - enjoyed immensely by everyone.

Great Folly Beach Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time staying at this home for our vacation! Very clean, comfortable home. Plenty of room for 8 adults! Enjoyed the front deck. Owner was very anxious to help with any needs and took the time to check in on us after a tropical storm passed up the coast. Great location!
