Overview

About the property

Folly Beach/Downstairs Unit/1 Bedroom/1 Bath/Sleeps 4/Pet Friendly/Fenced yard

Location is key and this rental is perfectly located to easily walk to all things Folly! Once you park your car there will be no need to get back in it, unless you are leaving the Island. Described as a 1 bedroom, this rental actually can sleep 4 with the addition of a quiet sleeping nook that hosts a full bed. Great for small families on a budget or couple's retreat! Pictures do not do this rental justice as it is much larger then it appears. Open, airy living area that comfortably seats 4 along with dining inside. Fully appointed kitchen with everything you need to stay in and prepare a meal. Comcast cable, flat screen TV in living room, additional TV in Queen bedroom. Covered Shaded porch outside with dining table and seating. Fenced in yard. Outdoor shower with hot/cold water. 1/2 block from Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Grocery and 2 blocks back from the beach. Beach Cart, 2 Beach Chairs provided. This rental is not a single family home but a downstairs, ground level apartment.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE DOWNSTAIRS GROUND LEVEL UNIT OF A TWO STORY HOME. While it is not a basement...it is on the first floor and you will hear some foot traffic above. The above space is lived in full time by a family of 4. The upstairs unit uses the back entrance and Tucked Away uses the front. Please also note that all parking out front is owned by the city of Folly Beach. We can not guarantee parking directly in front of the unit although there usually is ample space. The City of Folly Beach owns all easements. You are allowed to park anywhere on Folly as long as you are parallel to the flow of traffic, all four tires off the road, not blocking a driveway or fire hydrant.

WE ARE PET FRIENDLY, HOWEVER WE HAVE A LIMIT OF JUST TWO PETS. OUR PET FEE IS $50 PER PET. IF WANTING TO BRING YOUR PET, PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR ABOUT SIZE AND BREED BEFORE BOOKING. PLEASE ALSO KNOW YOUR PET AND THEIR ANXIETY LEVEL WHEN LEFT ALONE. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR PET IF IT BARKS OR WHINES INCESSANTLY WHEN LEFT UNATTENDED INSIDE OR OUT. WE ARE DOG OWNERS AND AS DOG OWNERS YOU KNOW YOUR DOGS PERSONALITY AND BEHAVIOR. DOGS BARKING TO ALERT IS ONE THING...SEPARATION ANXIETY IS ANOTHER. WE DO HAVE NEIGHBORS AND THIS IS AN APARTMENT WITHIN A HOME. EVEN IF PET IS CRATED...WE CAN NOT HAVE IT CONTINUOUSLY BARKING. IT'S NOT GOOD FOR YOUR PET AND IT'S NOT GOOD FOR OTHER GUESTS. WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP IN KEEPING THIS A PET FRIENDLY. RENTAL. IF YOU DO HAVE MULTIPLE PETS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING, WE MANAGE A WONDERFUL SINGLE FAMILY HOME WITH A HUGE FENCED IN BACK YARD THAT IS VERY PRIVATE AND WOULD OFFER A RELAXING RETREAT FOR DOGS AND OWNERS.

About Dianne Ray

Michael grew up in Charleston and always looked forward to family vacations spent on Folly. He went off to Clemson for his College years and there he was blessed in finding me, his wife Dianne:) Ever his dream to permanently live on Folly, he found the perfect home in 2007. With his 2 children and wife in tow, we descended upon the wonderful community of Folly Beach and count our blessings each and everyday! Michael grew up navigating the local, sometimes tricky waters and decided to get his Captain's license, so that he could share the beauty of the Lowcountry with others. Broker's license, Captain's license, Surfer and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Miguel is the man to answer any of your Folly Beach needs!

Dianne Ray purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Dianne Ray chose Charleston Area

We love this home as it is central to all the fun and excitement of Folly, but yet is Tucked back in the trees, shaded and secluded. It's sincerely one of the better locations, if you want to walk everywhere and yet also have a space to escape.

What makes this bungalow unique

Shade, Privacy, Location, Location, Location:) Spacious! Very Clean!! Pictures can't do it justice. Has everything you need to enjoy your time comfortably on Folly Beach!

Cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I love the location of this place, just steps away from all the shops and restaurants, and only two blocks from the beach. I parked my car and walked everywhere for the whole weekend.

There is a separate bedroom and a cute little sleeping nook off the living area. There is also a cute outside sitting/eating area and a small fenced in yard for your pets. My dog loved being so close to the beach, and sitting outside watching the world go by.

You do need to be aware that this is the ground floor of a house, and the family lives upstairs. There is some noise from above, but certainly no more than if you were at a hotel, with people in rooms above you. It is far better than a hotel. Room to relax and stretch out. Cute beachy décor, too.

Owner's Response: This rental is in a prime location...close to EVERYTHING but tucked back in the shade of the trees...offering a little retreat. We do try to advertise this rental as honestly as possible. It is a downstairs of a two story home. We have done our best to cut down on noise, insulation and rugs on upstairs hard wood floors, however you will still hear foot traffic. With the home being divided into livable sections, we have been able to offer an affordable alternative for guests visiting the area. We also supply two dorm room sound machines that supply white noise and a box fan that is also great for white noise...just in case you are a light sleepers. Offering clean and comfortable accommodations, an outdoor covered sitting area, wonderful hot/cold outdoor shower after long days on the beach, wifi, two tv's with comcast cable, and a location that could not be more convenient. It's our opportunity to share a bit of our piece of the edge of America with others and we wouldn't have it any other way. We hope all feel welcomed and invited while here and always try and make ourselves available if needed, while still offering a private experience.

Great location & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Being only 2 blocks from the beach, half a block from the restaurants and shops on Center Street, and around the corner from Bert's Market was wonderful! Parking was not a problem, even on a busy holiday weekend, and so close to everything that there really isn't a reason to use your car until departure time. The apartment was cozy, comfortable, charmingly decorated & well stocked, including a beach cart to help transport chairs, coolers, etc. to the beach. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 small dogs. We enjoyed our time on the secluded front porch watching the fur babies play in the fenced yard. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Dianne & family!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Two moms, 2 children each....had a great time in this cozy apartment. The location was key for us so we were in no way disappointed. I would recommend it to any small family. Diane was also wonderful. My friend had left behind a few things and Diane was kind enough to make sure she received them. Folly is wonderful and so was our stay there!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 6th stay in Folly. The house is in a great location just steps from Center Street, Berts and the beach. The house was clean and very inviting. The outdoor shower was a life saver as the indoor bathroom is TINY. Parking is on street which was fine except for weekends. We had friends over a couple evening and there is room for cards or games in the living room. The wifi was spotty at best but we were unplugged most of the week so it didn't effect us much. We would stay in this rental again if it were just myself and my husband but it is small for 2 adult couples. Overall a great property. The owners were very friendly and helpful while we were there.
