Rare Marsh and Ocean View 5 Bedroom Beach Home (Weekly Sat/Sat)

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 12)

This home will offer you a very rare, best of both worlds Folly beach experience, situated between the marsh and the ocean. The house has four decks, front and back, both levels. The back decks have views of the marshes, folly river, the folly lighthouse and Charleston, but most memorable of all are the sultry sunsets and sometimes… after dark the fireworks in Charleston. There is a tidal canal in back with a crabbing dock – a dolphin has been seen cruising up and down this very canal! The front porches have views of the ocean and on the second floor are open to the night sky and the incredible number of stars. Access to the beach is across the street. This home has a well stocked kitchen including an icemaker, lots of outdoor living spaces and a pool table. This is a weekly rental (Sat/Sat Only).

** For 2017 we have renovated 2 bathrooms and added 2 new bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms now have an ensuite bathroom except for the bunk room which has use of the hall bathroom with a shower/tub combination.

About Susan

The picture posted is our family photo of all the 'cousins' from our get together last year. As the kids were growing up we spent every summer on the beach along the southern seaboard - making lots of memories, as my mother-in-law so aptly expresses it. We hope that you will have a wonderful experience in our home and this will become a cherished memory for your family too.

Susan purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan chose Charleston Area

This all started with our love of Charleston, a historic and scenic cosmopolitan city. We have been travelling there for over 15 years, exploring, eating, shopping and just hanging out. And then there's Folly, with it's eclectic group of surfers, hippies, BMWs, mansions and shacks. Everyone is super friendly and there is always an unusual experience to be had. While the house is the best of beach and marsh the location is the best of city and beach - juxtaposition - right?

What makes this house unique

You will be lost in the views of the marshes, they simply wash over you and make you forget all your worries and put you squarely in the present, in this moment - where there is no better place to be. Pure relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Susan,

Yes we thoroughly enjoyed your home. I have already recommended it to a friend that is planning a trip this summer. The accommodations are very clean and decorated lovely. I felt like it was just as I would decorate which made it feel like home. We had 11 of us and everyone enjoyed a comfortable bed. The kitchen is so well equipped. Since it was so many of us and I love to cook, we cooked every night but one. I was never in need for a kitchen tool at every meal. We greatly enjoyed the pool table. We brought Kayaks and bikes. It was great to kayak right from the dock at high tide and to bike to the end of the island and see the light house at Morris Island.

We did have two slight issues. The fire alarm battery went bad at 4 am one night and I struggled to get the beeping to stop, however that could have happened at home too. I was glad to know the alarms were operational. We also had a issue with the disposal not working, but that was resolved quickly and with great service and follow up and never gave us another problem.

Thanks for opening your beautiful, comfortable home to us. We had many great moments and made some great memories.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my four-generation family vacation. The five bedrooms + 5 full bathrooms gave us all the space/amenities we needed. We spent a lot of time on the porches looking at the water and listening to the sound of the surfs. The walk to the beach was a short stroll across the street. This will be a tough vacation to top!

Great views from so many deck options, light house, Charleston Bridge, marsh and ocean

  • 5 of 5

Perfect accommodations for our group. Comfortable beds, and nice linens and towels. Great kitchen with all the tools needed. Had lots of big dinners sitting around that very large table. Great views from so many deck options, light house, Charleston Bridge, marsh and ocean. We all had fun with the pool table in the living area. A little far from town about 3 miles. We rented an 8 passenger golf cart to all get into town together with an open air feel. Would definitely rent the home again. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great stay..,.interupted

  • 5 of 5

Great place at the beach. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped. Great location.

Check in process was extremely smooth and fast. Tremendous first impression as house was spotless and welcome note and bottle of wine and nice touch.

Early issue of no hot water was handled nicely.

Will definitely return. Look forward to seeing the renovations.

Family vacation at Folly

  • 5 of 5

We came to Folly Beach for our son's wedding at the Tides. Had his kids while he and his bride went on a honeymoon. Also had our other son and his family and our daughter and her family. Since they live in NC and we all live in MI, we had a chance to be together longer than a holiday. Spent 7 glorious days there. Just a little rain. Didn't spoil anything since we had plenty of games and movies to choose from. We have rented a lot of homes but never had one so well equipped. The linens were all superior and beds really comfortable. The real life saver was the ice maker. All the decks were well used. Loved having the beach right across the street. This will be a wonderful memory for all of us.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. We loved to hear your comments about the linens, as we decided last year to upgrade to much higher quality sheets and towels and all the beds are made before you arrive so you can start your vacation as soon as you walk in the door.
