About Elaine Murray

I used to live in this little apartment when I was a student at College of Charleston. I chose it because it was on the water, and it took me just 13 minutes to be in class.

I loved to watch the sunrise over the lighthouse from the dock. I had a beautiful vegetable garden in the summer and loved to eat figs from the trees in the yard. I also gathered lots of pecans in the fall.

Since then, things have changed. There's a new dock, an incredible screened-in porch, and the apartment has a great new look!

But what brings me back is what brought me here from the start - the living, breathing marsh and the wealth of beauty that comes with it - the pace of the tides, the watercolor sunsets, the racing fish, and dolphins at play. Endless hours of sunshine on the dock and wonderful gatherings with friends and family.

Now, I offer this space to you, to share it as I've loved it, in all its compact quirkiness and all its natural glory. Hope to see you here soon!

Why Elaine Murray chose Folly Beach

Very close to the beach but away from the crowds. Lots of activity on Folly including restaurants, surfing, shopping and music. Come home to view the stars from the dock or have cocktails on the porch. Downtown is a short drive and very accessible from our location. Marsh Place is not only the best of both worlds but a sanctuary in itself.

What makes this studio unique

Private refuge away from the bustle. Bird sanctuary. Crab, fish or sunbathe on the all new and spacious dock. Kayak from the backyard. Relax on the fabulous screened in porch.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This listing description was very accurate and Elaine couldn't have made the process easier. The apartment is decorated so lovely and she went out of her way to make our time there special since we were on our honeymoon. She is very easy to reach and will always give the best suggestions. She has even contacted us since our stay just to check in We really enjoyed our time there and we will definitely be back again!!

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled upon arrival to see that everything was as we had hoped! The pictures on the website beautifully depict this lovely setting! The décor of the apartment was relaxing. Everything we needed was provided with the exception of groceries! LOL! The screened in porch, where we spent a great deal of time and without any bugs, was the icing on the cake!! Everyday we walked throughout the neighborhood...no sidewalks but minimal traffic. Cable TV and Internet service was excellent.

The manager of the property, Elaine, was fabulous and so friendly! Communication and follow-up was top-notch. We had the privilege of meeting the owners who live in the main part of the house. They were friendly and just a joy to get to know. Had we needed anything, Elaine or the owners would have been available and happy to help in any way.

The property is approximately 3-miles from Folly Beach and about a 15-minute drive to Charleston. Folly Beach has a nice, clean and affordable Laundromat. Although we did not spend much time in Folly Beach itself, we did drive to the beach that overlooks the lighthouse visible from Marsh Place Hideaway. This area was more secluded and separate from the tourism associated with Folly Beach. We spent a couple of days in Charleston touring and shopping...and shopping...and shopping. This area is rich in culture and history. A beautiful bridge crosses over between Charleston and Mt. Pleasant. The bridge provides for walking and bicycling as well as driving. We also enjoyed taking a boat to tour Fort Sumter.

We would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend this property. If you are looking for a small taste of Heaven, then this is the place for you! Enjoy!

Wonderful stay. Excellent Hostess

  • 5 of 5
My husband, adult daughter and I stayed here for 5 days and absolutely loved it. Elaine was a wonderful hostess. We arrived at 2:00 in the morning and she was there to meet us and show us where everything was. We really appreciated her doing that. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail in the little apartment is fantastic. I would say it would be perfect for a couple as it is compact but totally bijou! But even with 3 of us it was fine. The location on the creek is lovely. It is so peaceful and watching the sunrise was a joy. It is only 20 minutes from historic Charleston, so we had the best of both worlds. It was lovely to come back to our tranquil location each evening. Elaine gave us great recommendations for eating out nearby. Our favourite for breakfast was the Lost Dog. I cannot recommend this apartment more highly. Elaine will make you most welcome. We will definitely be back.

Charming rental near Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for two nights to enjoy Folly Beach. The marsh views were beautiful, and the apartment was perfect. The property manager, Elaine, was so delightful and wonderful and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. She was fabulous! The apartment was so charming and makes you feel right at home. We truly appreciated the details of the place! The dock and patio are beautiful; we only wished we had more time to enjoy it.

The price is very reasonable for what you get. It's a quick drive to the beach, grocery, and any other store you need. We would highly recommend this rental if you need a place near Folly Beach. Thank you, Elaine!!

EXCELLENT, QUIET BUNGALOW 3 miles from Folly Beach and 15 minutes to Charleston!!

  • 5 of 5
What an enjoyable place to stay! Close enough to the beach AND Charleston! The owners were super friendly and we chatted with them on the back patio for a good 30 minutes about the area and offered us crackers/cheese and wine! We went kayaking and dolphins came right up to us and swam along with us for an hour! About 6 of them! The only thing about the actual room was the bed was a bit firm for me, but they had tons of blankets, so a few stacked on top worked perfectly! We'll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Amy! We really enjoyed getting to know you and Geoff. And how wonderful to kayak with the dolphins! Six - wow!!! You two were sweethearts for being so polite when I checked on you, but I have a nice topper for that mattress that I think you would have loved! I hardly ever use it because up 'til now, I've only heard raves about how comfortable the bed is. Thanks for reminding me that everyone has their own preference. I think that should make it perfect for you next time. Hope it's soon! :)

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a cozy place. We spent lots of time on the dock and screened in porch. The owners were very friendly and the shared space worked great. The manager of the property left us coffee , eggs, and fruit. I loved being out and then exploring The city during the day. My sister and I give this our highest recommendation.

YOUR PLACE: Nature enthusiast's haven! Photographer's dream! Artist's palette! Beautiful marsh view provides seabirds and sea life with dolphin and sweetgrass. Winding river trails are perfect for kayaking. Screened in porch offers a cozy, scenic retreat. There is also an old fort maybe worth exploring in the neighborhood.

.....FOLLY BEACH: Colorful and bohemian, Folly is full of personality, from its beachfront to its people to its homes to every local business in town, this little island is rich in culture and strong on fun! Swimming, surfing, paddle boating, parasailing, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, canoeing, etc. Be sure to see the Morris Island Lighthouse up close before you leave!

.....DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON: About a 12 minute drive and well worth it, if for the food alone! Some of the best food you'll ever taste is served in the fine restaurants in Charleston. Make sure to get local seafood. Try Cypress, Hank's and 82 Queen. Take a carriage tour or just a drive or walk around the Battery - beautiful mansions, many of which are open daily for tour.
