MAY SPECIAL! ADORABLE FOLLY BEACH COTTAGE! 1 BLOCK TO BEACH! SUPER LOCATION!

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

***MAY SPECIAL**We have 3 nights left in May!***$150/nt for 12th, 13th and 27th!****The Island Girl' is a clean, Sweet Ole Cottage which has entertained happy folks for years and enjoyed some renovations and upgrades over the 2013/2014 winter months, including a BRAND NEW tiled bathroom!

The guests who have stayed with her, loved her so much, they say they wish they could stay forever. Pack a bag, throw in some flip flops, a swim suit and leave your worries behind at the Island Girl!

Located JUST ACROSS THE STREET from the BEACH (How Sweet is That?) and only two blocks from the Famous Bert's Market where you can buy anything from ice, to batteries, to organic vegetables, sushi and craft beer, the Island Girl is your key to relaxation. On the first floor, you have plenty of space to relax in the large family room, enjoy a family meal in the dining area or just relax on the screened-in porch while drinking your morning coffee. Upstairs, there are 3 nicely sized bedrooms, a full bath and entry to the sun porch which looks over the palms. Need some time away from the sun? No problem! Our backyard is nicely shaded from all of the beautiful, mature palm trees and there is even an outdoor shower to wash off the sand from your day at the beach.

At Folly Beach, you will discover the beauty and diversity of our quaint beach town! Referred to as the 'Edge of America', the town of Folly is very casual, and the locals are friendly. You will enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets, rich history, good food, expansive beaches, and a town center pier for fishing and sightseeing. Within steps of each other on Center Street, you'll find many restaurants, from upscale to the cool dive. Seafood is always fresh and available everywhere; but no fear, for the non-connoisseur there are taco shops and burger bars. Cool shops abound. And, surfing is big here, so bring your board or sign up for a lesson.

A clean and beautiful beach, there is plenty to do at Folly with wonderful swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, people watching, finding seashells, running and biking on the beach, and just doing what you want to do. Need to work off some energy after lounging at the beach? Just two blocks away is a wonderful Public Playground ,Tennis and Basketball Court.

And, if too sunburned, the charming and historic Charleston is just a short drive away. There you can enjoy some of the best restaurants on the East coast, explore the French Market, picnic at Waterfront or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the Holy City. Do some shopping on King Street, stroll through one of our beautiful museums, take a sunset cruise through the harbor or stop by one of the city's hot spots to people watch (including celebrities!)

Looking for a special or romantic weekend getaway and would like to customize your stay? No problem! We would be happy to have a chilled bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, chocolate dipped strawberries or whatever you wish, waiting for you when you arrive. Give us a call and we would be happy to make the arrangements!

My husband and I relocated to Charleston from the northeast because of our love of Charleston's beautiful beaches, mainly Folly, and to enjoy the relaxing pace that Charlestonians live. This area is a fabulous place to live and we love the ability to go to the beach any time of the year.

After escaping the rat race of New England, we find walking the beach is a wonderful way to clear our head, unwind and relax. There is something about - at least for us - finding a sand dollar nestled in the sand, a new turtle nest, or seeing dolphins playing in the water down by the light house. And, while our son, who is part owner, now lives in New Orleans as a manager of a hostel, our pure enjoyment is watching him and his girlfriend relax and enjoy the same things we fell in love with Folly, when they come to visit. And, we love being able to share that feeling with you!

We hope you come back for years to come. But, if you ever find you would like to relocate here permanently, please let me know and I would be happy to help you find your new home.

Folly now has many restaurants and entertainment that we equally enjoy. But some of my favorite times are in the water. Swimming, Fishing the Surf, riding the waves, Fishing from the pier, or boating the Folly River while skiing, tubing and of course, fishing and shrimping.

The Low country is abundant in crabs, shrimp and fish. The many local piers make it easy and fun to catch your own meal, or if you do not get a nibble, Crosby's seafood is just up the road with some of the best local seafood around for you to take home and prepare. Come on Down to the Low Country and experience the Edge of America ( Folly Beach) 1st hand. You won't be disappointed.

April break

Great location, one week from beach, few blocks to downtown. House very comfortable. Weather was not the best and we were disappointed that we couldn't use the screened in porch when it rained, there was no ceiling on deck above. Close to downtown for shopping and dinner, owners great to deal with, very nice vacation, would definitely return. Also need outside light by grill to cook out after dark

Thank you!

We had a really great time in Folley Beach and the Island Girl was a great choice for our stay. The cottage is super cute and comfortable. Thank you again for everything. We just wished the weather would have been warmer, but we still found lots to do and had fun. We left 2 kites in the shed for your future guests to enjoy.
We look forward to coming back again soon!

Lovely little cottage

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
The cottage was clean, cute, comfortable and the owner was very helpful in finalizing our plans. The only issue we had was the uneven flooring. You had to be very careful when you walked down the stairs and then into the dining room because the flooring camouflaged the extra step before you get to the table. There should be something on the floor at the top of that step and on the floor near the table to catch your eye and prevent someone from tripping or falling.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know. A rug runner has been placed in that location so guests can be more aware of the different levels of the first floor. And, we were so happy to read in the guest book how much you enjoyed your time at our cottage as well as posting the photo on our Facebook page!

Thought of Everything

  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Not only is the house extremely close to the beach, but the owners thought of everything to make the stay comfortable and as uncomplicated as possible. There were boogie boards, coolers, a cart to haul your stuff to the beach (which we used every day), a Wii, a grill with propane, and recommendations on everything there is to do in Folly Beach. We also really enjoyed hanging out on the back screened-in porch. We had an amazing time and will definitely be considering another stay at the Island Girl in the future.

Island Girls

I took my 9 yr. old and twin 5 yr. old daughters away to Folly Beach for the week and the Island Girl was the perfect beach house for us. Incredibly well appointed, we went from brewing iced tea to cooking out and then to the beach, without having to pack any of our own stuff. The games and DVDs were especially useful at night and for those days where the kids needed a break from the sun. Walking distance Bert's Market and the beach meant we could leave our car parked, a truly memorable break, the girls and I will be back again soon for sure!
