Designer Rental By The Beach - Unit A (2 Bedroom)

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy Folly Beach in this beautiful, newly renovated sister unit to 'Designer Rental by the Beach'. Like its sibling, it also features heart pine flooring throughout, a Sony 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Theater with HD DirectTV (featuring a 42' Sony Bravia wall-mounted HDTV and a top-of-the-line Blu Ray/DVD player), Wi-Fi and free long distance calls, all brand new appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator and a Frigidaire gas oven/range and dishwasher, tons of natural light, and an eclectic mix of comfortable designer furniture and decor.

The layout is extremely spacious, with the living room, dining area and kitchen area all connecting together without walls. There is a large porch out front, and a small one out back, from which you can see the ocean. A great place to find some solitude.

The unit is located right behind Bert's Market, which is the local 24 hour grocery store and deli so if you arrive and find you are missing something, odds are Bert's will have it, and you are only footsteps away. (We can also arrange to have your unit PRESTOCKED with groceries. Just mention it.) You are also only one block from Center St., the heart of Folly Beach's commercial district, with a great variety of shopping and delicious food. Don't forget to visit the pier!

Oh, and if you have more than 6 people, but less than 14, you can rent our sister unit we mentioned earlier, 'Designer Rental by the Beach', as well as this unit as 1 collective compound. Both units share a large front porch and together they have 5 bedrooms and sleep a total of 14 people (5 queen beds and 2 bunk beds). Just let us know you're interested in both units when you talk with us!

About Omar and Julia Colon

Omar & Julia are year round Folly Beach residents. Besides managing their rental properties, they own and operate Bert's Market, the only grocery store on Folly Beach. They have 3 daughters and one son.

Omar and Julia Colon purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Omar and Julia Colon chose Folly Beach

Folly Beach is one of those hidden gems...a place that seemingly hasn't been touched by the rest of the world. Its charm is one of a kind! Our unit is a 60 second walk from the beach, and 1 block from Center Street, where all the restaurants, bars and shops live.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful weather year round, the constant sound of the ocean, and convenience of Bert's right around the corner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay! My group really enjoyed this space. It's very comfortable, happy and hip! The location could not get any better. I will definitely book this condo the next time I'm in the area.

The perfect Folly stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, perfect location, great price. Had trouble with the TV, but Omar was very responsive and fixed it quickly. Loved having access to the grocery for yogurt, fresh pastry and the paper every morning. We spend a great deal of time in Folly and this apartment is my favorite. Danielle & Jim

Great location! Wonderful ambiance and very safe.

  • 4 of 5

Could not get toaster to stay down - had to hold it down for toast. Could not get grill to light and it was quite nasty - as in not cleaned in some time. Don’t plan to sleep in on delivery mornings for Berts...lots of trucks outside and somewhat noisy. Beach is great for sharks tooth hunting. Overall a great experience!

We very much enjoyed our stay. The location to the beach and the town is excellent. We will be back to Folly beach. The place suited our family nicely. It could use a couple minor repairs but overall really liked the place.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at your rental by the beach was great! The place is adorable, and conveniently located near the beach and walking to all the great restaurants in Folly. We'll definitely be back! I highly recommend it. It's nestled in a great little neighborhood right next door to a 24-7 quaint grocery with fresh home-cooked breakfast sandwiches and a great deli daily. We didn't want to leave!

Thanks again for your hospitality!
