Folly is a casual resort beach with a world-class fishing pier and miles of beautiful oceanfront perfect for sunning, shelling and splashing in the water. Downtown's Center Street is quaint, pedestrian-friendly and features a variety of shopping and dining options.

Our comfortably-furnished home offers an open floor plan, beautiful antiques, hardwood floors, tiled kitchen and bathrooms and a glorious ocean view. The kitchen is fully-equipped and filled with light from both windows and a skylight. The dining table seats 8 with 4 nearby barstools and additional seating at a picnic table on the beachfront screened porch. Just beyond a large swing and daybed, the screened porch opens onto a walkover and deck with private beach access.

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We met the owner, Eleanor, upon arrival. She was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. She chatted with us about the area and gave suggestions on where to eat. House was in a perfect location for shell collecting, walking (about 1 mile from town), quiet for sleeping. House was so great that I want to move in permanently! Everything we needed was provided: towels, deck chairs (beautiful deck too), umbrella. House was in great shape. Saw dolphins swimming almost everyday from our patio. It was a perfect vacation spot. Thank you Eleanor.

Absolutely FLAWLESS!!!

  • 5 of 5

As an avid traveler to numerous bed and breakfast/vacation homes, this home by far exceeded my expectations! Pictures really can not describe the quaint cozy feel of this property. As soon as we walked through the door, I knew this was going to be our "spot" for years to come. It is put together and decorated to the finest detail and every part of the house was so clean! There was absolutely nothing we needed that wasn't already there - from cooking utensils to beach toys for the kids. And the view of the ocean looks like something out of a magazine! Kudos to the Ulmers for providing such a wonderful experience for my family and many others! We will definitely be coming back!!!!

Great rental with best location on folly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this classic beach home. With the best location on the beach, less crowded and less congested w, Ashley, near the beautiful park. We rented a golf cart and could get in to downtown easily. The house itself is super clean and comfortable. Owner was nice to deal with and exceptionally responsive when we had a very small issue. There was 6 in our party and I was nervous about the 1 and half bath, but it was never a problem. Great showers outside were a nice addition. Very well provisioned with lots of dishes, pans, and everything needed. Would def rent again.

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this property enough. My family (including a 5 and 4 yr old) and I stayed for a week in August and it was absolutely perfect. The beach is literally a short walk out of the back door so that kid trips back and forth were extremely easy. I woke up each morning and read my book on the back porch with a view of the sunrise over the ocean. The house, for those that aren't familiar with Folly, is on the side of the island that is more residential with few renters i.e. pleasantly quiet. We purchased surf lessons from a local gentleman who came out and gave the kids lessons on the beach right outside of the house. There are outdoor showers which helped with post-beach clean up and which was a fun novelty for the kids. The home has a TV with good cable reception (sometimes an exception at the beach) which was nice for winding down in the evenings and for cartoons when the kids needed down-time from the sun and sand. This house is the epitome of the classic Folly Beach cottage with a nice, open living space large enough to accommodate the whole family and a screened in porch for meals and chilling out. The owners were extremely flexible and accommodating as well, which made the overall experience that much more relaxing.

Perfect location, perfect house for à family

  • 4 of 5

First, the owners are charming. We had the pleasure to meet them and they make us feel at home! But they also were very discreet.

The house was in good shape and very very clean!

The neighborhood was safe and we enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Thank you again!
