Thank you for choosing Polly's Folly. Please note that I do not rent my home out on Craig's list so beware of a scammer. This is the official safe place to rent Polly's Folly through the verified payment program of vrbo and HomeAway. Ask me about Polly's Charleston digs if you want a quick getaway to Charleston for 5-10 people.

Polly's Folly has a modern, casual beach vibe built for families and friends who are ready to lounge in the surf by day and linger on the decks at night. It's also a quick drive to Charleston, which is a completely different, must-see experience for those who like to pack it all into a day. It must be noted that Folly Beach also has many great restaurants, and hang outs for those who want the ability to walk home.

If part of your vacation agenda includes sitting in a rocking chair, surfing, kayaking, biking, building sand castles and watching the waves roll in with your family and friends then this is the place for you. This is an unpretentious beach cottage built for lazy days and hanging out. Charleston design maven, Angie Hranowsky updated the living areas, kitchen and dining area. Folly Beach has a great selection of restaurants and bars just .8 mi from my house on Center Street. Bike and walk on the beach to the pier and county park. Sunrise is exhilirating at Folly. Wake up feeling more refreshed with the expansive views of the sky and oceanfront, try to greet the sun as the moon and stars fade away.

My house has everything you need to dine in with a large crew. Six bedrooms and four baths. Two living areas, three tv's. Five queen beds, two twins, plus two built in twin day beds in the aerie loft. Wireless internet. The screened porch and deck overlook the ocean on a sandy beach. Restaurants are within walking distance. The decor is happy, laid back, and fun like Folly Beach. My address is 817 West Ashley Avenue. It is .8mi from Center Street.

The layout is four bedrooms downstairs flanking the kitchen/dining/living area with jack and jill baths in between the oceanfront and street side bedrooms. Upstairs is a loft with two built in day beds. There are two bedrooms flanking each end of the loft with two baths just outside of the bedrooms. There are five bedrooms with Queen beds, and one bedroom with two twin beds, plus the loft with two built in day beds. Four bedrooms are downstiars,- two on each side of the house. Upstairs has two private bedrooms at both ends of the loft. The two upstairs bathrooms are outside of each bedroom door and accessible from the loft.

This is a non-smoking, no pets property.

The house is directly on the ocean. One bedroom has a sliding glass door leading to the deck. The twin bedroom is on the street side. Four bedrooms have ocean front views. Bed linens and bath sheets are provided for fourteen guests. Beach towels are not provided. There are three tvs in the house. One in the living area, one in the loft, and one in the downstairs bedroom with the sliding door to the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cooking utensils, dishes, and serving platters. Outside is a gas grille. There are several rocking chairs, adirondack chairs, and lounge chairs on the deck and screened porch. Under the house is an area outfitted with two picnic tables and a hammock. There is an outdoor shower on the deck as you leave the beach, and an outdoor shower under the house. Check in is 4 pm. Check out is 10 am.

The house is so close to the water that at high tide it looks like you are riding the waves on a boat.

The house is built on 15 foot pilings which creats a perfect covered area for parties with DJs and photobooths, even in the rain. Because front yard is open grass, it leaves plenty of room for large party tents for dancing, catering, hosting, service, and seating areas. Jeanne from Mosaic Catering created unique layouts for a three day celebration hosting 110 guests for a family celebration ranging from a dinner, to a party, to a brunch. Weddings and special events may be hosted at this property. There is an event fee. For parties over thirty people, a portable bathroom must be rented due to the use of septic tanks on the island.

About Paulette Lambert Weiss

We live in Charleston and Swarthmore, Pa.

Paulette Lambert Weiss purchased this house in 1999

Why Paulette Lambert Weiss chose Charleston Area

We love the relaxed nature of Folly. Basically, we love the beach and really wanted a home on the water. The hassle of finding a parking space and dragging beach gear back and forth is eliminated when you can walk out the door and be on the sand with the convenience of an outdoor shower whenever you want. We also happen to love Charleston, which provides a quick change of scenery with alot of fabulous dining options.

What makes this house unique

We ride bikes on the beach, grill on the deck, fish, go crabbing, surf, spend time with friends and family. Oyster roasts are great under the house. Start your morning with a cup of joe at The Lost Dog Cafe- it's my morning ritual. Rita's, Planet Follywood, the Irish Pub, The Surf Bar and Taco Boy are great restaurants and very close. Woody's delivers delicious wood fired pizza and Dolphin deli delivers great sandwiches. There is a small grocery on the island called Bert's where you can find pints of Ben and Jerry's ice cream,etc. Get an ice cream at Tides Hotel and eat it by the pool.

Charleston is only 20 minutes away so it is very convenient to go to the city for a completely different experience.

Notes:
Come hang out with family and friends at Polly's Folly. We are .8 mi from the Center of town. You can rent bikes, golf carts, paddleboards, and kayaks. We have two living areas, and plenty of outdoor space in the shade and the sun. Unlike other homes, we have outdoor furniture galore. It's wonderful here! I know good babysitters and chefs!!! You can do paddle board yoga near Morris Island Lighthouse.

Loved this location and really pretty beach, not too crowded! The amenities and decor very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Loved this location and really pretty beach, not too crowded! The amenities and decor very nice. Clean and tidy inside. The outdoor shower was so nice. The decking needs updating and there was trash and some broken furniture under the house. The grill is very small and needed to be lit manually.

Everything for a nice week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Not too far from "downtown" Folly, this beach house was perfect for our getaway. Nothing too fancy, just right on the water in a lovely location on the beach. Nice touch with the screened in porch. Owner was extremely easy to communicate with. Nice lofted living area for group hangout.

Great House, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time at this house. It is a perfect size, and in a great location. Many of the rooms have Ocean views. There are definitely enough bathrooms, and the layout is great.

Paulette was very nice. My cousin lost a diamond necklace and Paulette's cleaning lady found it and returned it!

I highly recommend this house.

Beautiful location. Loved the view the porches the beach

  • 5 of 5

Children and grandchildren spent a delightful wedding week with us. Polly is planning to paint and spiff up which is due. None of those minor things bothered us. If we lived closer we would return frequently

Folly Beach is 17 minutes by car from Charleston, SC. The beauty of being at the beach is that you can relax by the water and go in to the city with very little effort. Charleston is rich in beauty and history, Folly is lovely and laid back. My new favorite is to go paddle boarding near Morris Island Light house. Two Historic Plantations are on HWY 61: Magnolia, and Middleton Place. The Battery has gorgeous antebellum mansions overlooking Fort Sumter. Charleston is a city of culinary delights, the food is exquisite and beautful. Don't miss the Charleston Riverdogs playing minor league ball in season. Go to Bowen's Island for oysters and live music. Every morning, when I am at the beach house, I go to Lost Dog Cafe at Second Street and Huron for the best coffees.
