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

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.

Great house for a large family. The porches facing the water have amazing views. The kitchen is well equipped, although we wished the second dishwasher was functioning. Having a second refrigerator is so helpful. Proximity to town is great. We also loved the décor=antiques mixed with comfortable seating, really pretty!
Will be back!

Good Times

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. We rented a golf cart and the electric charger would not reach the outlet in the garage. Ed brought us one instantly! The extra fridge was utilized to the fullest! We never had as much as a coffee cup in the sink thanks to the two dishwashers. I counted 12 rocking chairs on the huge porch and I think we all rocked our way to the moon and back while we watched dolphins and pelicans... Beds, furnishings, etc were comfortable. There had been previous water leak in hallwat area of property as evidenced by bubbled paint on certain areas of ceiling. This was a non-issue for us. The house was clean and well appointed. Our football enthusiasts were thrilled to discover the NFL ticket was included on the TV. We love Folly Beach and we are all looking forward to returning. We will definitely be staying at Star of the West.
