Overview

Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Our property is a classic 1925 Folly Beach oceanfront cottage. Harks back to simpler times with wood floors, ceilings, and walls. Screen porch along the length of the beach side provides outdoor living space with a hammock, rocking chairs, and wicker overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Open and spacious floor plan has ocean views from every bedroom affording ocean breezes and gentle wave sounds to lull you to sleep. When there is no breeze, the house has central heat and air conditioning with ceiling fans in every room. The one bathroom has a shower but no bathtub.

Two bedrooms have queen beds and two have twin beds. TV in Living Room and Master Bedroom. Short walk to beach directly in front of the house. Outdoor shower with hot water. The house is completely furnished with bath towels, bed linen, and pillows. Underneath the house is the laundry room with washer and dryer or clothes line to hang up your swim suits.

Bring your beach towels, bikes, surf boards, kayaks, and beach toys. The Edge of America awaits you. No smoking. No parties. Will entertain pets. Please inquire.

Historic Charleston is just 20 minutes away with museums, site seeing, fine dining, and shopping. The business district on Folly, however, has good restaurants, bars with music, and shopping. Owner is a native Charlestonian and can help you plan your visit. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Incredibly Enjoyable Stay at a Lovely Vacation Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Chicken Lady's house in early June and had a great time. The beach is easily accessible and the screened porch was fabulous. There were seven of us and we didn't have any problem with the one bathroom. The outdoor shower has hot water. Several of us took turns sleeping in the hammock. Our host even shared her fresh cherry tomatoes from the garden with us!

The kitchen renovation is great. We especially liked the retro refrigerator and gas stove. The dining room seats 8 easily and we used the outdoor grill most of the time to cook our meals. The house decoration is very distinctive just like a beachfront house should be. Everything we needed was there. I would bring your own beach chairs but there is a variety of beach toys under the house.

Charleston is only a half hour drive from the house. The restaurants were wonderful. So many, so little time.

Parking was convenient and the block is a little less crowded as there isn't any public parking in the block. We will be back again. Thanks, Folly Beach.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have rented this house right on the beach. We fell in love with it last year and it did not disappoint this year. The cottage is a nice size - we are a family of 5 and everyone has their own space with room to spare without feeling lost. All of the necessary ammenities were available.

For those who are not familiar with the area, it is a lengthy walk to get to the center where the stores/restaurants are (so bike or drive a cart instead). The benefit of this is that you really do feel like you have your own semi-private beach!!!!!

The owner and the property manager are very friendly and make every efforts to ensure your stay is pleasant.

Can't say it enough - love this place!

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little house is in the perfect location and is really comfortable. It's only 20 minutes to downtown Charleston, provides easy access to the main streets of Folly Beach, and the ocean is literally just steps away. A little bit rustic and a little bit charm, the cabin is well maintained. We had a group of seven people and the single bathroom was a non-issue. It is also located towards the back of the house, so there is no traffic near that area constantly during the morning or evening hours - and we never ran out of hot water! We also thought we were going to have some refrigerator problems, but the property manager was quick to call a repairman - and even offered to purchase us a new fridge so we would enjoy our stay. Now that's service! We would love to come back to this charming little cabin for a future stay on Folly Beach!

Fabulously Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Love the relaxed atmosphere of this beach cottage! Loved the rocking chairs and rope hammock out on the porch where I could relax and meditate on the ocean waves. Very comfortably furnished and perfect for a relaxing get away or family vacation with young children. Close enough to the end of the island that you feel you have your own private stretch of beach. Plenty of nice places to eat just a bike ride away. Can't wait to be able to go back!

Folly Beach Sand Castle

  • 5 of 5

I've made two visits to this place, six weeks in total, and find it very nearly perfect in every way. Charming elderly beach cottage on the sand, overlooking Folly Beach. Roomy, well appointed, furnished with all the essentials and more, I just love the ocean sounds all day and night, with dolphins playing, pelicans diving and shrimp boats chugging by. A bike (rentals available in Folly) is all you need to explore the island, town and nearby Bowen's and James Island, great food, music and friendly people. Bring a sweater if it's cool...

Really Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

While I was getting ready to reserve the Chicken Lady's house for another Thanksgiving, I saw the last review. We have had the most wonderful experiences with this host. She is prompt, welcoming, and really works with us to get what we need for our trip. We have had a few special requests which were readily accommodated. Don't hesitate to book with Amanda. Oh, and she's very conversant with Charleston so if you need any recommendations, ask.
