I moved to Charleston, SC from Wilmington, NC. I went to school at UNCW and graduated with an Environmental Science degree., and fell in love with the coast. Ended up in real estate. Working for real estate for developers, it has taken me, up and down the coast from NC, to FL. I met my beautiful wife in Charleston, and we are now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the city of Asheville raising our family.

Lee Swing purchased this cottage in 2002

When i first moved to Charleston, i rented a home on Folly Beach. It had such a great, laid back feel, unlike other beaches that i have lived before. The home i had rented, had a similar location to 303 E.Huron, close to center st., and a short walk down to the beach. When i was shopping for a home, those criteria were very important. I also love trees, and the old mature palms blowing in the breeze was also a very welcome sound to me. There is a trophy live oak(huge canopy) that is very indicative of the south, that greets you as you pull in to the home.

The walk down to Center St. is relaxing as you take in the scenery, and before you know it, you are in the middle of all the shopping, and great places to eat. The Folly Crabshack is a favorite for local seafood, or for twist, go to the new Taco Boy restaurant. A walk on the pier after dinner for ice cream is a given. The location is what you will like about this home, convenient to everything, but on a quiet street on Folly. Also to drive to downtown Charleston from here is very scenic, and only 20 minutes away.

Folly Cottage

  • 4 of 5
A great cottage - a couple small "Folly Blocks" to the beach at excellent access point beside the pier. Great location for downtown to the gas station or Bert's for groceries - Bert's is pretty price so stock up before you hit the cottage.

Cottage is older but in great shape - cozy and clean. Had only a small trash issue, called the ower, and was taken care of immediately. Would go back next time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tricia, and we look forward to having you back in the Fall. There is never a bad time to be at Folly, but the Fall season is one of our favorites! Thanks again for sending Elsie and Al our way! Take care, and have a great summer!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary vacation and hope to stay again this year.

The location is great: easy walk to Center Street (Lost Dog Cafe!!!) and the beach, but just far enough way to feel private and not be noisy at night.

The house is cute and comfortable. The beds and linens are very comfortable. The kitchen has the basics that you need, and there's even a selection of books. There aren't many wash cloths, but other than that things are well supplied including hand soap, paper products, and dish soap. The air conditioner works very well, there's plenty of hot water, and all of the appliances were in good working order.

It's a great place to stay for a laid back trip, especially if you want to travel with your dog. It was great being able to bring our dog, have a kitchen, and have access to a washer and dryer. This was our first time renting a house, and I can't imagine doing the B&B thing again now that we've seen how wonderful renting a house is.

Lee was very pleasant to work with, and returned our security deposit very quickly upon our departure, which we very much appreciated.

As I said, I hope we're able to rent this house again this year.

Great beach place for kids!

  • 4 of 5
First off, let me just say that mid-September is the best time of the year for good beach weather. If you can take your vacation at this time of year then do it! This house fit our needs perfectly. It's not too far from the beach, downtown, or the "pirate" themed playground. Our children loved the books, toys, and red wagon that were provided. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked. This house really is one of the best deals at Folly Beach!

Comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5
This beach bungalow has just the right amount of renovation while holding on to its best vintage features. Very charming, comfortable and home-like. An easy walk to Folly's main street and to the beach. Pluses for my family were access to Wi-Fi and that our dogs could vacation with us. The property owner was great to work with and quick to respond to my questions. My family spent a very enjoyable week at this cottage and looks forward to returning.

All I can say is that this is a charming folly beach cottage. It is a one of the original houses on folly, and holds much character. Although it is older, it has been tastfully decorated and all of the necessities have been thought of such as beach chairs, umbrella, and a fully stocked kitchen and also includes a washer and dryer which is very nice to have during a week stay. I booked for one week, however wanted to stay through the labor day weekend and Lee the owner was great to work with, he allowed us to stay for a few extra days. I am only in Charleston once a year, and live abroad, but I can say that this is the perfect beach house for those who do not expect a huge glamorous mansion. It holds much charm and is located blocks away from center street which is perfect for walking home from the locals restaurants and pubs. I was also allowed to keep my pet there, which made it the perfect place because I do not get to see her very much! My father and boyfriend stayed there and we had a great time. This is house is perfect for a small family or couple and is great for those who appreciate older beach houses with character. Thanks again Lee, and hope to see you again next summer!!
