NEWLY RENOVATED PRIVATE HOME W/ DEEP WATER DOCK, 3 MIN.TO BEAC

Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (sleeps 8) + Private shell room and Den w/sleeper sofa

Marsh Gayz is a private river front home with a deep water dock tucked away on Tabby Island, a secluded waterfront neighborhood of Folly Beach, South Carolina. Surrounded by age old live oaks, saltmarsh meadows and the wide waters of the Folly River, this beautiful home features spectacular private views of the Low Country at its finest. Although sequestered away from the main beach drag, it’s still only a 5 minute stroll to the beach and the famed surfer’s paradise known as the “Washout.” The quaint commercial district of Center Street and Folly Landing, with its many restaurants, shops, night clubs and parks, is also just a short bicycle, drive or boat ride away. You can easily launch your boat at the landing and dock in your own backyard during your stay 24/7. Historic downtown Charleston, SC is a scenic 15-20 minute hop over the island connector that characterize this part of the East Coast.

Unlike many coastal homes, only four steps up takes you to the haven within. This single story dwelling sleeps (6-8) people with three bedrooms and 3 full baths (one with a deep Jacuzzi tub). The roomy master suite has a sweeping view of the river via glass sliders that open onto the wide back deck. A spacious great room with beautiful Morris Island brick gas fireplace, bumper pool/games table and separate walk-in bar embraces even more stunning views of the river. The large well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a central island, dishwasher, microwave, trash compacter, multiple tools for the culinary inclined and a large dining table for seating 8 or more. A small study/shell room can be found off the main entryway, and there is also full pantry/laundry facility and a large garage. This home contains all the amenities including wireless Internet, Cable TV, 52” flat screen TV, DVD player, sound dock for Ipods, ceiling fans, and central heating and air conditioning.

Although the house is a sanctuary in itself, it’s really all about the great outdoors. A spacious sundeck spans the entire back of the house and leads you across the lawn to a short railed dock ending at the river. The dock facility has both floating and stationary platforms, and is complete with a shaded area and bench seats, fish cleaning station with sink, water, lights and power. There is also a paved patio area in the back yard that is perfect for oyster roasts, shrimp or crab boils and other seafood affairs with a stainless table, portable cooker and pots, shell barrels and an open pit fireplace for adding a little late night ambiance.

Marsh Gayz is an ideal getaway for families or friends who have an interest in all of the watersports delights that the river world offers, while fish, crabs, clams and oysters can be caught or found right out the back door! With amazing sunsets to the west, the statuesque Morris Island Lighthouse to the east and miles of river and marsh in between, one could not want more for a perfect summertime setting. It’s also an excellent venue for small quiet gatherings whether for family vacations, reunions, graduations, small weddings or housing wedding guests. (Not available for renters under 25 years of age.)

If you're looking for a private river front home with a deep water dock on Folly Beach, we invite you to consider Marsh Gayz – a by-owner private vacation rental on the South Carolina coast. Relax your cares away or take a running splash off the dock, and enjoy the peaceful serenity and nature of Marsh Gayz where the loudest thing you'll hear is the soothing sound of the river, and the occasional blow of hello from our regular porpoise friends.

Amazing place with all the fixings

This rental is amazing. We had 2 Adults and 5 Kids on our vacation. There was plenty of room within the house to wheere we did not feel crowded and on top of each other. The amenities that are provided to enjoy the beach, ocean, and fishing are great! All you need to bring is a bag of clothes and you are good to go to enjoy everything that this place has to offer. The dolphins greeted us on our first walk out on the dock, and they came around twice each day. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to escape reality for a couple days, and enjoy beauty and relaxation that is offered from the Folly Beach area. We will be coming back again for our next vacation in the fall or spring to make more enjoyable family memories again!

If you are going to celebrate a milestone birthday, this is the place.

Party of five to celebrate a 70th for Dad. The winter has been fierce and we never got to the beach--this was the place to celebrate. Marsh gayz is a beautiful private home, very comfortable to hang out by the fire, walk to the beach, or enjoy the patio, deck and pier over the marsh. Saturday morning, there was a blackbird washing up in the birdbath. Everything you could want on a vacation is at hand. All the sports equipment, kayaks, fishing, crabbing--it is all there to use. And all the kitchen equipment is in place with labels to find at a glance. Best appointed kitchen I have seen and comfortable space to work in. The other reviews sounded over the top, but this home really is a welcoming, well-loved space where guests' wants and needs have been anticpated. Really charming. And we were able to get a last minute reservation at Blu in a nearby hotel, excellent fish and seats by the firepit on the patio after.-now if our ACC teams could have made the finals, the weekend would have been perfect! I can see us making return visits to this lovely place, a break to be together in a fun place!

Our home is meant for glorious celebrations; I saw the special cake your daughter brought.

My Happy Place

As a "repeat offender," I was delighted to return to find the home even better. The renovations are wonderful yet the home remains very cozy and with everything a family could want to enjoy the beauty of the river. I returned this year for a full week and was again delighted with all of the amenities. Some friends came over for an oyster roast and to teach my children to kayak. Natalie and the owner have thought of everything down to the last detail including having a complete set of oyster tools and an oyster barrel for the shells! The "party pit" is truly complete and ready for outdoor cooking. I brought my children and my parents this trip and made so many memories. Everyone was delighted from the youngest to the oldest. Natalie, that you again for being such a wonderful hostess!
Owner's Response: We couldn't be happier that you maximized your stay by enjoying the outdoor "Picasso party pit" that was re-invented for entertaining. You utilized our home for which it was intended and built lasting memories with your family, friends and especially your parents. We're glad you found your sweet spot with us on Folly. Thank you for being a "repeat offender." We look forward to you returning.

My family and I recently spent the weekend at Marsh Gayz for my son's 1st birthday. This place was perfect on so many levels. My retired father loved fishing off the dock, my step daughter was completely occupied with hunting for shells in the back yard, we all LOVED waking up to the Lowcountry scenery in the back yard and the unbelievable sunsets. We hosted a BBQ for some close friends and family and they had nothing but excellent comments about this property and said they would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the future. To top our stay off, my son took his first steps in the living room, which made us want to stay even longer. We made so many family memories there. The place was in immaculate condition. The home has so much to offer families with all of the cooking, fishing and recreational gear. We plan to return and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay on Folly Beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, Jay & Lucas,
It warms our heart to hear how much you, your family and friends enjoyed Marsh Gayz. We worked really hard on the "Picasso party pit" so it's great to hear you put it to good use with your BBQ cookout as well as oyster roast. Way to go Lucas on his first steps! How proud you must be. Hopefully distant relatives can make the trip down sometime and you can return to our magical place.

Labor Day Weekend

Having traveled from Massachusetts & Michigan, we were delighted with the surroundings. The dock was the most favorite spot - enjoyed throughout the day and evening. The privacy and peace and quiet were greatly appreciated. Wonderful Location! Close to everything but secluded and not "on top of your neighbors." Reservation process was very easy. Best wishes for continued success in the rental arena.

Notes:
We can accommodate special events/weddings and have all the referral resources needed to make it special. Jan 2014 wonderful renovations and updates have been made. A new door in the back foyer now has an long open pane of glass and the great room has French doors that opens out to the back deck, both really brings the outdoors in and enhance the view. The back foyer and bath have also been tiled, which we hope to extend through the kitchen and hallways by Fall 2014. The outdoor lower cement patio has gotten a refresh and is dubbed the “Picasso Party Pit”; a conversation piece of its own! This is where we have our oyster roasts, Lowcountry boils, etc.... We're installing another outdoor sink/counter on the patio with running water which makes party clean-up super easy. The master bed/bath has been overhauled and each bedroom has been refreshed. The great room received a new leather sleeper sofa.
