About Charles

Our beach home has been in our family for over sixty years. 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

Wood flooring in all bedrooms, quiet ceiling fans, red metal roof, re-insulated home, with new lighting, sink/vanity, cabinets in bathrooms.

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.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at your house it was the perfect fit for our large group! The grandkids (2 & 4) and adults all loved being steps away from the beach, we saw dolphins swimming close by and starfish when the tide was out making it that much more exciting! The house was perfect for us with room for everyone to sleep, huge table for meals and thank heaven for your big screen so our Red Wing hockey fans could watch their games! We never felt crowded found it was the perfect location close enough to downtown and tourist attractions but kind of in our own little world away from the crowds. Don't miss brunch at the Lost Dog Cafe and Hanks for a special dinner.

Perfect Folly House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at your home. The house is very well furnished and the location so convenient - just across the street from the beach. We felt right at home. We even set up badminton on the back yard. You can not go wrong with the lovely 4 bedroom home with a fantastic upper story master suite.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We just spent spring break with our grand kids at Folly Beach. This property was everything as advertised. The house had everything we needed and was very clean and in excellent repair when we arrived. The large kitchen and dining room were excellent for our group. The new big screen TV and sound bar are a real nice touch for movies at night. Beach access is located just across the street and it is an easy 1/2 mile walk to the restaurants in Folly so you don't have to hassle with parking. Charles was very helpful and contacted us to make sure everything was okay (that doesn't happen at every VRBO property). You can't go wrong with this choice!

First visit to Folly

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this vacation home. Very comfortable, plenty of space, and everything we needed. The owner is very responsive and will help with anything you need.

Very close access to the beach, and the deck is a great place to watch it all go by. We really appreciated the beach chairs. Thanks Charles, for all your help. Our first visit to the lowcountry was a success!

week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house I is warm, welcoming and at peace. it has been totally redone from the Calfornia king beds to new linens. Much of the furniture has been. Updated and is very comfortable . My favorite room is the dinning room and the large table that will serve 10_12 people . The row of windows make

The room bright and unfilled. You can see the ocean from the deck and the living room. This room hasten redecorated and is comfortable. I really like the Palm tree which was lit to welcome you.

The is a peaceful which leads to many happy memories of fun and laughter

It makes you want to take

Friends and families to visit the shops and eat seafood and spend time in the beach.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic! The home was very cozy with lots of charm. It has a very short walk to the beach and is very close to everything you need. The owner was great to work with and was always available to answer questions and checked in with us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. The entire experience was great. I would stay here again and recommend others to do so as well!
