About the property

Enjoy the best of Folly from this perfect ocean front location. Expansive split-level deck takes in all the views with room for dining, reading, and sunbathing. Large picture windows enclose the dining area/sunroom offering the same panoramic views. The cozy great room features a central brick fireplace and views of the ocean and kitchen. Our winter renters can snuggle up by a warm fire with the ease of remote controlled gas logs. Beach access is directly next door over a short boardwalk. The master suite includes a queen bed and a private bathroom. Two twin bedded rooms share a second bathroom. The house is decorated throughout with original watercolors by local artists and a long term tenant. It is just over a mile from Center Street, Folly's bustling main drag with eclectic shops and restaurants. You are close enough for a walk or bike ride, but far enough to enjoy our peaceful retreat. You have found your B.F.F. - Beach Front Folly home!

Perfect beachfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in a great location. Anna is a wonderful host - so sweet and helpful.

Everyone unplugged from the electronics for the week. Stargazing from the deck at night - breathtaking! Amazing family time. Thank you Anna and Folly Beach

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! I am glad we had a chance to meet in person and that the sea breeze and ocean waves cooled you off. Best place to be during Charleston's hot summers! I hope you will return to The Edge of America very soon.

We've found our little piece of Heaven here on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary, I saw this heavenly home on the VRBO site...we stayed 2 weeks making leaving was so difficult. Anna was wonderful to deal with from the beginning of our adventure until the day we left. Her home is very tastefully decorated, giving a cozy, "home" feeling with the most incredible view of the Atlantic. I found myself waking up every morning at 6 am just so I could sit in the sunroom with my coffee, watching dolphins, sea gulls & early morning surfers.....we were the first to use her spacious new deck......the house was fully stocked with every imaginable amenity. We loved being there so much that we rarely ate out but when we did ,we found the restaurants to be fantastic! Thank you so much Anna for allowing us to enjoy your piece of Heaven... We hope to return again soon! Donna & Jim N.

Owner's Response: I had the good fortune to meet Donna and Jim when they arrived since we were still putting the finishing touches on the new deck. They were so patient and flexible with us as we were literally putting out the new welcome mat as they walked up the steps! I appreciate their kind words and am so pleased that they had a great stay. The weather is perfect this time of year, a great time to be at the beach and enjoy Charleston. Thank you!

Great place for our family vacation, can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in this wonderful property. Upon unlocking the front door for the first time everything exceeded my expectations. The cottage is spacious enough for 3 adults and 2 children we had with us, everything is nicely decorated and in great condition. Anna thinks of everything, from the personalized welcome note to the extra towels and beach chairs. The outdoor shower and tankless water heater were great to ensure the kids came in sand free and the adults had plenty of hot water to shower as well. The beach access is as simple as it gets and was never very crowded.

The best part of this property has to be the giant deck facing the ocean. It's the perfect place to start the day with a coffee and end it with a cocktail.

You're about a mile and a half to town and parking in town is challenging, so if you have bikes I would recommend them for trips into town for ease.

I would recommend the property to anyone looking to have a nice, quiet vacation. I'll certainly be booking again next year.

We have stayed in many beach front properties over the years and this is by far, the best one! The house is clean and furnished nicely. There is plenty of room to spread out or all hang out together. I spent the majority of my time on the beach (just steps away), on the large deck, or in the awesome sun room. We had three teenagers with us and they enjoyed the close beach location and easy access to town in the golf cart we rented. Anna has thought of everything. Very cozy house with a fantastic view. I started missing it the minute we had to pull away and head back home.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased this family had a great week at our house. Since we have been using HomeAway, we have enjoyed hosting families from all over the country, and abroad. It's a pleasure to meet them and find out what brings them to our lovely city and beach. I hope they will return very soon!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

One cannot ask for a nicer home to enjoy on the beach! Charleston is only 20 minutes away but we really never wanted to leave our beautiful beach cottage. All of the amenities are here - an upscale kitchen, deck for dining or reading, luxurious linens and a sun room with fabulous beach views. The decorations and artwork in the home give it a very cozy and personal touch that we especially appreciated. Also, hanging out at the beach was so easy with a collection of chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and towels to choose from.

The owner is extremely attentive and goes out of her way to provide add'l info when asked. She really knows how to make a vacation rental feel like "home". Thanks so much for the wonderful memories - we can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Homeaway has brought us so many nice families from across the country and it is a pleasure to get to know them as they plan their beach vacation. It is easy to provide extras and additional info when you know the families will appreciate it. We realize many of our families are flying in and cannot pack everything. However, I cannot take credit for the boogie boards. I think each family this summer has left at least 2! Thanks again for the kind words.

My Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house on and off for the past 10+ past years and we are in love! I fly home from San Francisco and make the drive down with my parents from Milwaukee. The house is clean, spacious, and the perfect beach retreat. I don't believe that the indoor showers are ever used during our stay! The owners are always extremely accommodating and lovely to deal with. Our stay at Folly is the one vacation that we look forward to all year. We just booked for this year and cannot wait!

Folly Beach residents refer to their community as the 'Edge of America' and they are proud of their eclectic surroundings. The Fishing Pier features fishing tournaments and monthly 'Moonlight Mixers' in the summer and is a social hotspot year round. Some consider Folly's Washout to be the best surfing on the East Coast. Originally built in 1767, the Morris Island Lighthouse is a Folly Beach landmark. Folly Beach County Park, Folly River Landing, and the Loggerhead Turtle Watch ensure you will have every opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. If you are looking for a dose of city life while you are here, Folly is the closest beach to downtown Charleston. There is very little that Charleston and its surrounding community do not offer. Charleston has a rich history including wonderfully preserved buildings and homes, world class shopping and gourmet restaurants, parks and gardens, and plenty of gorgeous scenery and natural beauty in its harbor, marshes, beaches, and rivers.

Other Activities: Beachcombing, sandcastle building, sunbathing, etc.
