Charleston Area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1full bath, sleeps 5, cable TV, sun room, easy beach access

Why spend a fortune to stay on Folly, when you can get comfortable lodging at a reasonable price. Property is great for the small family, or couples. Property is on a corner lot, located less then a 100 yards, (1 block) from beach access, and just a short drive to historic Charleston. One Mile from Folly's business district and center street. Great surfing, fishing and relaxation just a short walk away.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The rental process was easy and the rate I was given was a great deal making an awesome vacation for my family possible in this economy.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable trip.There was plenty of room for my family of four to be comfortable. The tenents downstairs were friendly and welcoming. I would not hesitate to rent this place again or to recommend it to others.

Folly Beach is a beautiful spot. The Crab Shack and Planet Follywood offered great local food at great prices. The Scorpio rolls from Lisa's Sushi located at the back of Snapper Jacks are out of this world.My 12 year old is now a sushi lover and can't stop talking about them. The choices for dining are endless,and there's something for even the fussiest of eaters. Bert's store is open 24hrs for that middle of the night need for solarcain, icecream or just a midnight snack.

There is so much to do in the area but it was also nice being able to have the option to just do nothing and relax on the beach.Downtown Charleston is just a short drive making a visit to the Market and historical Charleston easy. Another must is Theatre 99 located downtown. The theatre offers the funniest improv comedy you will ever see.The shows are original, hilarious and guaranteed to make you laugh until your stomach hurts. All for just five dollars on Wednesday nights.

My kids loved being on a vacation that let them choose the pace and activities of the day. We were hoping to see the famous Logger Head turtles while we were there but they alluded us. The dolphins, however, did not disappoint us. Swimming with them so close was an amazing experience.

As a vacation destination Folly Beach is a great choice for families or couples. There is plenty to do for all ages. I can't wait to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response, it means a great deal to know that our guests find the accommodations to their liking, but more importantly to learn that they’ve enjoyed their vacation. I was not aware of the improve; I need to try it next time I’m there. Next time your in town, I’d recommend taking the family to Andolini’s Pizza, the pies are great. I’d also recommend visiting Charleston during the Christmas season, there’s a light show at James Island Park, that we make it a point to see every year. Thanks again,

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. It was a great experience and affordable! Would stay in the house again and recommend it to others! Just what we needed for the two of us, though we could have housed even more. A short 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach. Make sure you only check in from 4-6 though, otherwise you have to wait!

folly beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

This little beach shack is great! I was excited to find that the beach,bars,restaurants and the lighthouse were all so close. We biked the island all week. The little apartment has plenty of space. There were 5 people using the house and we did not feel crowded at all. The only reason I gave the house a four is because the beds were pretty uncomfortable. However, I would definitley rent this property again because of the location, cleanliness and the affordability.

It's hard not to judge a book by it's cover!

  • 2 of 5

The best thing about this rental is that it is literally 1 block from the beach, and comparatively, it is affordable. (However, most places in Folly Beach are 1 block from the beach or less...) The inside of this little appartment was completely adequate; it was clean and comfortable, and spacious enough for two couples. The outside could use a paint job, to say the least. The low price also may attract some unsavory characters. The people staying in the bottom appartment were drunk and holed up in the appartment the entire weekend we were there, and there were some strange things going on in the middle of the night. Overall, we had fun and were happy to not break the bank, but we might look for something a little more appealing next time around.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It is our goal is to provide a clean and comfortable stay at a highly affordable rate. Historically the affordable rate attracts younger couples and budget minded families. Please note the downstairs unit is not a vacation rental, but rather done through a yearly lease. I have heard no other complaints about the couple downstairs. However if there were to be issues, a call to my property manager would have it quickly resolved it.
