Why Keith and Lynn Merrill chose Charleston Area

Very unique house. We love the palm trees growing up through the front porches. Multi-level so family members can spread out and maybe have some quiet time in the sunroom or just sit on the many decks and see the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Parking is always a problem at the beach. We have our own private off road driveway and a separate parking pad outside the back porch. This house is an original beach house that has been renovated over the years. Beautiful enclosed yard and the beach is just across the street.

A wonderful home & bargain!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all and it's just a quick walk across the road to the beach...We don't want to talk this house up too much because we want to keep it all to ourselves!! The owners are super to work with and this house is not only really cool...it's totally immaculate! You'll love it! The 3rd floor has an awesome view of the ocean as well.

Wonderful Vacation in Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Don't let the second row address fool you, it was a closer walk to the beach than at a lot of front row hotels where we have stayed. The house is great space with comfortable sleeping for everyone. The kitchen was well-equipped and loved having the whole family sit down to dinner at the great big dining table. The house is close enough to town that we just walked down when we wanted and didn't have to worry about parking.

We didn't want to leave!!!

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

Folly Beach is great! The house is in a perfect location, right across the street from the beach, with easy beach access, plus just a short stroll into the Folly Beach town area. We had 2 adults and 4 teenagers on the trip and the layout of the house was perfect for what we needed. The owners were wonderful to work with. I would definitely recommend checking out this location.

Lovely house SO close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location of this house! While it's not on the "front row" of the beach, you have view of the beach from the house. And it's about a 30 second walk to the beach. Plenty of parking spots. Each room has a little air conditioning unit that allows each person to make the room as cool as they want. The kitchen is spacious with a large dining table. The house was clean upon arrival, and the sheets and towels were not old and worn out like you find in some rentals. The layout of the house is a little strange, but didn't cause any problems.

My only minor complaint is that there is no door to the room with the two queen beds (at the top of the spiral staircase). So all sounds from the house travel very easily right into that room when people are trying to sleep.

We had a wonderful vacation and I would definitely book this house again!
