Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Ocean front house, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

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 by night. Charleston Magazine's July 2014 issue features Folly Beach's great restaurants. Look it up online!

if 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.

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 day beds in the aerie loft. Wireless internet. 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. This is a non-smoking, no pet 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.

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.

What makes this house unique

We ride bikes on the beach, have bonfires at night (with a permit), grill on the deck, fish, go crabbing, surf, spend time with friends and family. Oyster roasts are great under the house. Start your money 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.

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

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

80 Birthday Celebration

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently came together to celebrate the 80th Birthday of my husband and their father, grandfather, and great grandfather at Polly's Folly Ocean Front Beach House. We all enjoyed our stay at this well kept home. Loved the fact that we were able to provide sleeping arrangements for all with plenty of space to roam. The access to the beach was a plus for grandkids and the patio and deck view offered a great place for the adults to relax and communicate. I would like to thank Polly for her invaluable assistance in making this landmark celebration a joyful occasion for us all.

Charleston sc

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The property has the most amazing view of the ocean and is super close to the beach. I think you are about 20 feet away from the sand. It's very clean and the beds are super comfortable. Very close to good restaurants. Close enough to bike ride. I loved my stay here and found it very relaxing!!! Can't wait to go back again and again.

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.
