MEDITERRANEAN FIVE-STAR, AFFORDABLE LUXURY WITH OCEAN VIEWS

Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Pet friendly, luxury, extreme cleanliness all combined! Sleeps10 max

Please check calendar for availability as we do keep very booked with lots of repeat guests.

From the moment you enter the giant doors of this custom, 3000+squarefoot home into the two-story foyer you will be transported into another world. Mediterranean-style architecture mixed with comfortable high-end furniture and appliances exceed all standards of holiday rentals.

This is a full-service rental. You just need to pack your personal belongs. Unlike most other rentals we supply all the rest at no extra cost to you. High speed internet and free long distance phone .Most of all you will feel pampered by the high-quality designer linens and towels as well as the quality soap products just like a five-star hotel.

This home is ideally situated 3 rows from the ocean with grassy path right in front of the house ,making the beach just 2 minutes walk away.Best of all you are just two blocks to Center Street Folly with its quaint stores, coffee shops, ice-cream parlors, and numerous restaurants, so there is no need to take the car when casually stepping out at night or walking the pier.

The home consists 4-5 bedrooms 3.5 baths (sleeps 10) and a spectacular hallway and formal living room and large dining and living areas off the kitchen amazing, state-of-the-art, 'to die for' kitchen with tons of granite and professional stove,with double ovens as well as the 2 microwaves and large, side-by-side refrigerator .The kitchen is open to the family room/tv room ,dining room as well as the screened porch which is the most popular space in the house with our guests as it has conformable chairs for all as well as a secondary dining table and where you will find yourself surrounded by tropical trees and the singing of birds mixed in with the sound of the ocean.

The living room to the front of the house can be used as an overflow living space/tv room or 5th bedroom as it has a day bed and pull out trundle as well as the sofa and love-seat

Also downstairs is the fourth bedroom with queen 4 poster-bed.Here there is a full bath as well as small kitchen area and T.V This has a door to the screened porch so this area is a beautiful unit within itself if someone wants more peace and quiet.

Upstairs there are 3 more bedrooms.The Master bedroom is huge and opulent having a king size bed and plenty of extra space .The spa like bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. There are two further queen bedrooms upstairs sharing a Jack-and-Jill, beautifully tiled bathroom. The larger of these bedrooms has a great ocean view from the queen-size bed ideal for lazy days. There are TV'S .in 2 of these bedrooms ,one left without on request so Kids don't stay awake all night watching!

The most spectacular aspect of this home is the ocean-side deck, perfect for days you want to lounge and

sun without being at the beach, or for catching the cool night breezes and ocean sounds as you dine alfresco or gather with friends.

Underneath the home is a great grilling area (gas)and outdoor shower as well as storage area for the sun chairs we provide.There is also a 3 car enclosed garage as well as lots of space for parking more cars in the driveway.

This home is for the discerning renter, a family or group who appreciate such luxury yet want the casual fun feel of Folly, mixed with the quick commute to Charleston, and all this for 1000s less similar luxury elsewhere. With all we have to offer, as well as making it available to owners of mature well-behaved dogs(at no extra cost), we have had 8 wonderful fully booked out years with lots of very happy guests, many of them repeat guests .Please check the availability calendar which we always keep up to date If we are unavailable we would love to have you visit another time.

Folly Beach is like no other place. Once the haunt of hippies and dropouts, it has retained its quaint beach-side atmosphere. When other communities were being developed out of existence and their personality, Folly remained unchanged. Now it is one of the most desired communities South Carolina as quietly over the past few years it has been discovered. This means all the more amenities for you while keeping all the charm.

My husband and I were both born in Ireland but have lived in the US for 20 years and are proud American citizens.We live full time in Augusta Ga where he is Dean of the Medical School .We have 2 teen boys who love to bring their friends to Folly as well as 2 Great Danes who love the beach. We love to relax and hang out in Folly and Charleston where time just expands and you can never tire of going back to again and again.

Leonie Buckley purchased this house in 2004

We were looking for somewhere we could have for a vacation home for now ,and later as a place to retire.Folly has it all ,its relaxing without being too quiet,has the beach but so much more within short distance that you could never get bored .It has all the charms of Charleston within 10 min.Its old-fashioned eclectic feel reminded us of the seaside village in Ireland where we had a home previosly.It had everything we were looking for and more.It has a real vacation feel to it yet is a living suburb of Charleston open year round.It is impossible not to relax in Folly.

This home was built in 2000 by a builder as his main home so he put in a standard unlike anything else at the beach. Its also built in such a way as to give everyone staying space and privacy so everyone staying here has a great time together and never feel on top of each other.Its just 2 minutes to the beach and 2 min to center street Folly yet on a amazingly quiet street so little traffic.We are surrounded by owner occupied homes so its incredible quiet.When you are in the screened porch all you hear is the sound of birds singing from the empty lot next door and sound of waves crashing from the ocean. After all these years we still feel it a treat to go there ourselves. We have a great team of cleaning staff and handymen so we do not have to spend our own vacations doing the work to keep the house in tip top shape as we did the first year we owned it ,so we get to be guest and enjoy Folly too!

FABULOUS, PET-FRIENDLY VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
This home is the ultimate beach vacation rental. From the high-quality linens and bath products, to the well-stocked gourmet kitchen, it was five star luxury all the way, just as it is billed in its listing. We were so appreciative to find a pet-friendly home that was also luxurious... something that you rarely find. And the size of the home allowed all our family members to have their own rooms, and we could spread out and enjoy some relaxation without being on top of each other.

This house is clean, well-stocked and comfortable. It has all the amenities you could possibly need for a beach vacation. You don't need to bring a thing! There was even a large dog crate, perfect for our golden retriever.

We loved Folly Beach and the local atmosphere. The local "Lost Dog Cafe" was a perfect place for breakfast. Charleston was so easily accessible with all its lovely shops and restaurants, not to mention all the historical sites. The entire Charleston area has so much to explore, and Folly is the perfect hub for seeing it all.

In short, we can't say enough about this great home and the owner's customer service. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable, luxurious beach rental (with or without the family dog!).

FABULOUS FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place for our entire family to vacation. The home is spacious enough for our 2 sons, daughters-in-law and our wonderful grands with lots of comfortable seating. There was always a cool breeze on the screened porch, plenty of kitchen space for group cooking and I loved every minute of our family time together! It's an easy walk to the beach or downtown even for our 4 year old grandson. We can't wait for next year. Back to the real world now . . . . (sigh)!

GIRLS WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was awesome. We had 10 women sharing the house and there still seemed to be more space than we needed. The outside deck was fabulous and bedrooms neat and clean. The breezy porch was the best. Just a short walk from the beach, it was so convenient. Had all the supplies and accessories you needed, which was so convenient if you are flying in to Charleston and unable to bring all the extras. Would recommend this house to the Queen!

SIMPLY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Determined to get away for the children's Spring Break- we stumbled upon this "diamond in the rough". Words can not describe how amazing this house is!! It was neat, clean and very well kept! The kitchen was to die for! The master bathroom was breathtaking! The open patio was awesome and the closed in deck late night was soothing with the sounds of the ocean in the background! The size of the guest room was huge! There is not one bad thing I can say about the house or the experience! We felt like we were right at home! There was so much to do. The beach was less than 2 blocks away. Shops and restaurants within walking distance. Everything was provided for us. All you really have to do is bring food and a change of clothes! We are planning on making this a tradition every year and we are determined to stay at "Unleashed" EVERYTIME!! I can assure you this is the best beach house in all of Folly Beach and Charleston! Simply AMAZING!!

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
We were so comfortable and loved this house. Everything is so clean and ready for you to enjoy. We loved having our family and our dogs. The house is more than accommodating with size of rooms being the ultimate. Having linens, towels, shampoos, soap, etc. provided is such a treat. The beach and the restaurants are in walking distance. Bert's store is the coolest. Loved it all. Thank you again for allowing us to share your beautiful home!!

Folly Beach is a very unique area.I have been renting my 2 homes here for 8 years and it has been 'discovered'by more and more people who fall in love with its old fashioned charm,eclectic feel yet it is full of all necessary amenities needed for a great holiday while being only 15 minutes from Charleston and all it has to offer also.There are almost no islands like it left in the USA.It feel like going back in time to an old fashioned beach resort as it has been untouched by development.However in recent years all the restaurants and bars and parks and amenities have all been upgraded so you get the old-fashioned feel mixed with great quality service and style. There is so much to do on Folly and there are more things added every year. Kayaking,boat-trips for sightseeing or deep sea fishing,pier fishing, you can hire bikes,jet skis or golf carts and lots of other things.We have a few Churches and a library for our longer term rentals in winter and convenience store as well as a great fish store,ie you can come to Folly and never leave the island if you wish as it has everything complete.

Being the closest island to Charleston means you can combine a beach vacation with all that Charleston has to offer: sightseeing,shopping ,antiquing ,dining ,etc Because of all this Folly is getting more and more popular and does get booked out earlier than other islands around so do book early so as not to be disappointed.About 50% of our bookings are from repeat guests so it not only tells you something about our home but about Folly also.If you come once you just have to keep coming back
