About The Owner

My husband and I lived in Folly for 4 years and fell in love with the beauty and laid back feeling of Folly. We have since moved back to the hills of North Carolina, but wanted to keep a connection to Folly for us and our 5 children and 9 grandchildren. We had a smaller rental, Daffodil Cottages, that we rent, but needed a larger space for our huge crew. We found this vintage beach house, loved the location and the character it had, mess that it was. For almost a year, we and our very hard working children, turned the house into a fun place for our family to gather and also a great rental. Originally, the house was a single family house, but somewhere along the line, has been turned into two separate units, each with 3 bedrooms. It makes it nice when the whole family goes because we have room to spread out with 6 bedrooms, 3 bath, each having it's own kitchen and a bit of 'space' for everyone. Also, if just a few want to go, we can pick either up or down, and rent the other space. It was perfect for us and also a unique rental space that thought it would give some options to tenants.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

What makes this house unique

The location of the house was a large part of what we loved about this house. It is only 1 block off center street, so you can walk to downtown folly, the pier and most anything on the island in just a few short minutes. You can see the ocean from both units, inside as well as out. To be cooking in the kitchen downstairs and gaze out to the ocean is just great. Even though we have remodeled, the house still has a 'vintage' feel of an old beach house, which appeals to me as an antique dealer. The front porch downstairs and the deck upstairs also was such a plus for us. It is such fun to hang out on either porch and watch the comings and goings of all the 'folly' color....and yell 'wrong way' to all the cars that go the wrong way down our street. Bert's Market is the street behind us, (a local folly landmark and market), and every morning we cut through the back yard and go get our free coffee and eggroll if my little granddaughters are with me. Such a treat!!

Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came down to Folly Beach from NC and could not have been more pleased with this place. We had the upstairs part of this magnificent 2 story house. It would have easily accommodated our whole family, but this was a getaway for the wife and I. It sits directly across from the beach with easy access to it and the nice local dining establishments. Everything and anything we wanted to do was easily within walking distance. The Sea Spot is definitely a place we would come back to! We would like to thank Gail for allowing us to stay in this lovely home away from home.

The Perfect Spot at Folly Beach.

  • 5 of 5

Gail's house was charming and so convenient for us. We loved the porch and the roomy apartment on the first floor. Our dogs enjoyed people and dog watching from the front porch. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

FABULOUS rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two four-legged children stay here everytime we come to Folly, and it is the best place on the island to stay. It's affordable, GREAT location, and the owners have given such an attention to detail that it puts you right at home the minute you walk in the door. You can't go wrong with Sea Spot.

Amazing week in Folly!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our decision to vacation at Folly Beach this summer!

Sea Spot was the perfect house for our family of 12!

The upstairs was perfect for the " 20/30 something's " while the parents enjoyed the downstairs!

We enjoyed sightseeing in Charleston as well as lots of time on beautiful Folly Beach! Being so close to downtown Folly was perfect... We enjoyed eating at Rita's, The Crab Shackand The Lost Dog Cafe.... Excellent food all around!

Thank you, Gail for your super quick replies to emails!

The house was so comfortable and inviting!

We are hoping to return in the future!!

This was our first family vacation at Folly Beach and I must say it was everything that I thought it was going to be. The house was amazing, it had all the "little" things you could want or need. The location was perfect, the decorations were perfect, the people are so friendly and the beach is so close. The front porch at night was just wonderful, the breeze was so comfortable. We only rented to bottom floor, but is was spacious and nice for 9 of us. I am going to put my request in for next year. Very easy to work with Gail and Belinda. Wonderful place. WE hate to leave.

Wedding week at Sea Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both floors for the week of my daughter's wedding. It's the perfect house for multiple family's that want some time together and a little time on their own. We were downstairs and it was the "main meeting place" for anybody that stopped by, which we loved! We are used to bringing so many of our own things from home when we rent houses (such as kitchen gadgets, special pots or pans, etc) but this home has everything you will ever need! We loved having the two front porches (one upstairs & one downstairs) and the big back yard. We hosted a small brunch the morning after the wedding and there was plenty of room for everyone! We have come to Folly once a year for 20+ years but have never stayed so close to town. It was so much fun being so close to everything - especially the pier! I recommend the Mexican Food Truck too! The food is to die for!

Gail was so flexible and was very nice to work with. We had a week we will never forget!

We hope to come back to Folly next year and would not hesitate to stay at Sea Spot again!

Thank you!
