Overview

About the property

4 Bed + Loft, 2 Full baths,2 -1/2 Baths, Elevator, Sleeps 12 - Sun-Sun Rental

A *PET FRIENDLY* fully furnished, Folly Beach vacation home that's close to everything on the beach! Ocean is directly across the street - convenient access. Only 2 blocks to Folly Beach's shops, restaurants and pier. The home was specifically designed for your vacation with a vaulted great room, elevator, friendly kitchen and 4 sets of French doors spanning the front of home to maximize the view. Front master bedroom and loft have ocean views. Large front covered porch with hammock, BBQ & patio furniture. Sundeck for private sunbathing.

This elevated home has a large fenced back yard that is perfect for pets. (Our Great Dane and his playmate visit in the off season and they love it!).

Why this home over others at Folly Beach?: This home was specifically designed for your vacation! The owner chose the lot and house plan with your family in mind. It's on the West side of Folly Beach where there's less traffic and noise, but only 2 1/2 blocks - easy walking distance - to the restaurants, shops, pier, etc., on Center Street. The home is 2nd row with direct access to the beach. We are PET FRIENDLY and have an ELEVATOR (great for easy unpacking and settling in after a long trip - or for any guest not able to climb stairs) and a fenced in back yard. The home is also great for anyone using a wheel chair, with extra wide doors to one master bedroom, bathroom and shower. And , unlike front beach and most 2nd row homes on Folly, this home has wonderful parking. There is room for 3 cars under the home and room for 5 more cars on the driveways. Also unusual for a Folly vacation rental is the fenced in back yard. It's shaded by the house - a great place for everyone to relax out of direct sunlight.

Sunbathing with sun burnt friends? You'll love our combination sun deck and covered porch. It's large enough to spread out and get just the right tan. And the trees surrounding it add some nice privacy from nearby homes. For guests who had a little too much sun the day before, the covered part of the deck provides welcome relief. Hang out on the patio furniture or in the hammock and recuperate without missing any of the conversation!

WE HAVE COORDINATED WITH CRAIGS LIST TO REMOVE THEM WHEN ALERTED BY POTENTIAL GUESTS, BUT THEY CONTINUE TO SURFACE. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO ANYONE CLAIMING TO RENT THIS HOME ON CRAIGS LIST.

About Misti and Robert Melton

Robert Melton's construction company built the home in 1999 specifically for vacation rentals. His business partner at the time was handicapped and suggested making the home handicap accessible, which was a great idea.

Misti and Robert Melton purchased this house in 1999

Why Misti and Robert Melton chose Charleston Area

The home is on the less traveled (west) end of Folly Beach and is directly across from the ocean, with public beach facilities and a handicapped public beach access. It is also just 2 1/2 blocks from Center Street and the Folly Beach Pier, which is a perfect walking distance from the home. Out of range of nightclub music yet close enough to easily walk back and forth to the home as often as guests like.

What makes this house unique

This is an elevated home with an elevator and a fenced in back yard. Pet friendly, well cared for and with a sundeck for sun lovers and a covered porch and hammock for friends and relatives who'd prefer shade. With one of the few 'street to street' driveways on the island, there's plenty of off street parking under and behind the home, which is at a premium on Folly Beach. All this at about 1/2 the price of an ocean front home; this home is a great deal!

Notes:
Main floor: 4 queens; loft: 4 twins. Elevator, outdoor shower, covered porch and large sun deck with ocean view and hammock, direct access to ocean. Great parking! One of the FEW homes on Folly Beach with a driveway that connects the front and back entrances to the lot. You can pull under the home from the ocean side and drive out through the back of the property. Much easier for several cars to park, come and go without other guests having to move vehicles to allow people to leave. Note: the BBQ is fueled by a propane tank and if it empties during your stay, guests should exchange it for a full tank at the gas station on Center Street, Folly Beach. The cost is approximately $16.00.

Perfect house.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in the house twice. Great for small and large groups. Wonderful to be able to bring the dogs. Less than a block to beach and within walking distance to everything on center street. Management is very helpful and kind. Hope to return soon.

Wonderful beach vacation & house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house. It has everything you could need and then some! The beds are comfortable, plenty of shower space and bathrooms, plenty of space for everyone to spread out, the little ones enjoyed the loft area & having a space of their own. And you can't beat the location with the beach access across the street. Thank you for everything!

Great Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's 6th trip to Folly and this was a great rental. It is right across the street from the beach access and a short walk to Center St. The house is beautiful and well maintained and the elevator was great for getting luggage and groceries upstairs. The front porch was also a favorite hangout for our family. I would highly recommend this property.

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place, very close to the beach (less than 2min walk). I could even see part of the ocean from the porch. The elevator was wonderful for my grandma but also convenient for our luggage and groceries. The furniture and amenities were nice. Only recommendation is to perhaps update the outdoor space.

We really enjoyed our week at your beach house. The weather was perfect there was three generations there excluding my new two week old grandson.

We were there to attend my oldest grandson wedding in Mt. Pleasant.The house was a added pleasure to enjoy my four children being together.

Thanks for adding to our joy.

The house was clean & well equipped!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us, and it was great that they had a pack n play, stroller and high chair. All the amenities we needed were there which was great, and having a washer and dryer with a baby was a huge plus! The house was very close to the beach (only a 2 min walk) so we could easily go for walks. Having a couple parking spots was also very handy. Thank you for a great stay in Folly Beach!
