Overview

Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-24) 3,810 sqft

If you are looking for a special place for your larger party with breathtaking views of the ocean and close to downtown Folly, you just found it. This is a great house to host your wedding ($1100 event fee applies) This 8 bedroom oceanfront home offers a unique layout that can accommodate you and 23 of your family and friends in comfortable surroundings. The first level living area has a large media room with 65” flat screen, 2 new sleeper sofas, beverage set up area and an extra fridge... all with ocean view! This area opens to an equally large, new kitchen. New stainless appliances, 6 burner gas stove, large island with sink and a 13 foot heat pine table.. plenty of seating for big family meals (and another flat screen TV)… all with ocean views.

The first level is rounded out with 5 Bedrooms.

Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms. King suite with private bath, Queen bedroom with half bath and a ‘kids room’ with 2 queens and 2 singles.

There is outside seating on both levels. On the downstairs deck you find rocking chairs and a swing to relax in, read a book or watch the sunrise. The upper deck also offers plenty of space for lounging and working on your tan. This traditional Folly home has plenty of place for parking, outside showers and direct beach access. This home is a short walk to Center Street with all the shopping and restaurants you need. This home is exactly what you expect, cozy furnishing, tasteful decor and views of the Atlantic that won't find anywhere else on Folly. If you wonder where the name of this home came from, here is the story: The Star of the West was a civilian ship hired by the United States government to transport military supplies and reinforcements to the garrison of Fort Sumter before the American Civil War. The first shots of the Civil War occurred January 9, 1861 when the Star of the West was fired upon by cadets, from The Citadel, who were stationed at the Morris Island battery as the ship entered Charleston Harbor. One of the cadets was related to the current homeowner making Folly a very special place for them and for everyone who stays here.

The Event Capacity is 100 people, any event larger that 65 people requires Port-A-Potty rental and you must submit event details and plans to Carolina One Vacation Rental Staff

Star of the West- A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 families had a great time at the Star of the West on Folly Beach! Home was plenty spacious enough for everyone to have their own space. House was very clean upon arrival and Alex was quick to get a hold of to answer any questions. Walking distance to Center Street and a great beach in front of the home .

Excellent Stay at Star of the West

  • 4 of 5

This property was just about perfect for our stay for the Cooper River Bridge Run. There was 18 of us, friends-all adults. We have all traveled together in the past several times for races. There was enough queen and king beds, that all couples were so comfortable. There was enough hot water when we came home from the race to take showers! All the bedrooms were spacious, and the bathroom set up was great. The location was excellent. Right on the beach, parking worked well for all our cars, the decks were awesome, the kitchen and eating space was exceptional. We do make a lot of our own food, and love to sit and eat "as a family" together. This house gave us that opportunity. The property was clean and seemed well taken care of. it was a short walk to Loggerheads Restaurant/Bar-had fun there, and a couple more blocks to the main street with more restaurants and shops. Really had an exceptional weekend at this house. Would highly recommend for both families and groups. The only small gripe I have is-several of the remotes for the TV's didn't work-batteries maybe? And could have used more toilet paper in the bathrooms-1 small roll per bath, didn't quite do it. But would definitely look beyond that and stay there again. Thank you for offering your property to us for the long weekend.

House was wonderful! We had more than enough room for 11 adults. The setup worked well. It's also very close to Charleston and an easy drive to Savannah. Lots to see and do.

The house was exceptional. The living space was more than adequate, the kitchen was awesome and the bedroom/bathroom accomodations were great. The back deck was the best part. We had 19 in our group and there were rocking chairs for each of us and the view of the beach and the ocean was spectacular.
