MARSH PLACE HIDEAWAY ON THE WATER NEAR FOLLY - LIGHTHOUSE VIEWS

Folly Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

Quiet spot for crabbing, fishing, kayaking, or soaking up the sunshine.

Commune With Nature - Bicycle to Beach

Picturesque location on the marsh, just three miles to Folly Beach. Watch the sunrise over Morris Island Lighthouse and feed the seagulls from the dock. Great spot for kayaking!

Shabby chic with the feel of a cottage, you'll be rejuvenated at this charming little hideaway attached to our beautiful James Island home. Great for a romantic getaway or creative retreat, this sunny studio is fully private with its own entrance.

Sip your morning coffee from your private balcony or come down to the dock or screened-in porch.

Kitchen is fully equipped for home cooked meals, with a local grocer just around the corner.

The beach is about three miles away, and there's a bicycle lane on the highway. There's also a fresh seafood market on the way if you want to bring back some local shrimp to boil!

Spend the day on the beach and come home to a watercolor sunset. It's quiet here - you may never want to leave.

PS: Downtown Charleston is about twelve minutes away and a pretty easy drive. Try the five star dining and take a carriage tour!

Guestbook comments from the manager
My husband and I spent two nights at Elaine's place in April. Elaine was so nice and was accommodating to our not being sure of our arrival time. The only problem - 2 days was not enough! The apartment is cute and has everything you need. The dock and the views of wildlife and stars is fabulous! We ate at the Lost Dog in Folly Beach and the Fat Hen on John's Island, walked on the beach and enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck that you see in the pix. All around, a wonderful time. I would love to go back and stay longer!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

A Beautiful Energy

  • 5 of 5
I spent a few days at Marsh Place on a short creative retreat - what a fantastic little bungalow! Adorable second floor guest cottage with private entrance and porch offers peace and quiet and sparkling views of the marsh. More lovely than the pictures! Sunny and inviting, I had lots of privacy and immediately felt at home.

The space adjoins a larger main house, though I never once heard the owners inside. The cottage provides a fully functional kitchen, a cast iron tub, and luxurious sleep! Shabby chic and very very clean! Upon arrival, I was welcomed warmly by Elaine, who was meticulous and attentive and made great recommendations! DO eat at Lost Dog, DO walk down to the river, and DO rent a kayak! The owners were delightful and invited me to join them on the big porch but otherwise did not intrude at all. (And most of the time, I got the porch to myself!)

Sunrise on the dock, coffee on the porch, kayak on the marsh, seafood on the table. At day's end, I snuggled into soft linens and slept with the window open. Impossible to describe the beautiful energy that flows through this wonderful place. Thank you, Elaine, Jack and Shirley! I'll be back at every opportunity.

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.
