About the property

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.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The ideal beach cottage. The house is decorated in a charming manner and is wonderfully comfortable. One can see and hear the ocean from every bedroom. I'm planning to be back next year and for years to come.

The Classic Folly Beach House

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for the plastic new McMansion experience, this isn't the place but if you want the quintessential old Folly beach house it doesn't get much more real than this one. Things are charmingly caddywampus as only the old beach houses can be. My family (including 90 yr old Mom) has stayed here repeatedly and it's their favorite beach front vacation house. We like that it's on a quiet, dead end section of the road and on a great stretch of the beach away from all of the noisy action of the pier. We'll be back!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week-long stay at the "Chicken House" and have nothing but great things to say. The house is charming and comfortable, especially if you like a vintage, retro feel -- it's all of that in the best way. Yes, only one bathroom, but our party of 6 really didn't have any problems rotating through. Our party was two couples and two individuals and the bedroom setup was perfect for everyone to have their own space, with a comfortable common room in between and a big kitchen table. The screened porch was the star of the show -- we almost had to arm-wrestle for hammock privileges. Not isolated at all, but far enough off the main drag of Center St. to be quieter in the evenings. The house really did have everything we needed and the views and beach access were stunning. Amanda was a thoroughly gracious host, and we were able to work out a last-minute addition of a couple extra nights to our stay because we weren't ready to leave yet! We've vacationed on Folly for years but have never stayed in the same place twice - but in this case we truly fell in love and can't wait to repeat!

Owner cancelled on us without explanation

  • 1 of 5

We booked with Amanda Griffith after phone and email exchanges with her and were looking forward to our trip. After we already provided full payment and 4 days prior to our arrival, Amanda cancels on us without any explanation of any kind. She did return our full payment but refused to answer our calls or emails. We had already made all the arrangement to take the trip and received no details as to what prompted the cancellation.

Owner's Response: I have a house policy from years of experience that when a guest exhibits duplicitous behavior prior to their visit, then the experience only goes down from there. Let's just leave it at that.

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!
