About the property

3BR 3BA Town Home Sleeps 9

Escape on a getaway to historic Charleston! Stay at our comfortable, well-appointed, and beautifully decorated town home on Folly and enjoy the best of both worlds - the relaxed beach atmosphere of Folly and the charm and culture of Charleston.

Our town home is at Waters Edge, a charming development of colorful Charleston-style homes on Folly Beach. We are located in a quiet, tucked-away area on the river, but just a few short blocks to the beach and fun town of Folly.

This is a beautiful, clean, no-smoking villa with one of the best locations on Folly. Enjoy amazing views of the Folly River and marsh on comfortable lounge chairs from the screened-in porch and from the second-floor master balcony. Great restaurants and beach an easy walk through quiet, tree-lined streets.

The homes sleeps 9 comfortably. Twin over double in first floor bedroom with full bath. Queen with full bath on second floor. Master suite with king on second floor. Brand-new sleeper sofa in family room with comfortable memory foam mattress. Family friendly for babies: pack and play, booster seat, radio flyer provided.

48-inch LED Smart Samsung TV with HD in living area; flat-screen TVs in king and in queen bedrooms.

We have endeavored to make our home a stand-out, and offer many extras including beach bikes, beach chairs, toys, games, charcoal grill, and outdoor shower to wash away sand from a day at the beach.

We also provide guests with a unique online rental guidebook (easily accessible on phone/tablet/computer) that takes the stress out of trip planning! Ever travel to a destination and then wonder how to make the best use of your time and money? Don't stress about what activities to choose or what restaurants to visit. Whether it's a fishing trip or our favorite hole in the wall for mouth-watering fish tacos - we offer tips for the best places to go on your vacation.

Spend the afternoon by the river-front pool while watching boats drift by, or fish off the community pier where spectacular sunsets are almost guaranteed.

Explore the eclectic town of Folly Beach, which boasts surf shops, great breakfast spots, seafood restaurants, and wine and beach bars. Stroll the 1,000-foot fishing pier or take a leisurely bike ride on the island (several beach bikes are provided and bike rentals are nearby).

Charleston, with all its culture and charm, is an easy 15-minute drive away.

Activities: (on site or nearby): Biking, Golf, Tennis, Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Hiking Shopping, Restaurants, Cinemas, Museums, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Paddleboarding, Boating, Sailing, Surfing, Windsurfing, Jet Skiing, Shelling.

About Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid

We are a family of five, and we have been sharing our homes with guests since 2003. We manage four properties - three in the Florida Panhandle and one in Folly Beach (our favorite).

Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid chose Waters Edge

In 2003 our neighbors told us of a marsh-front property they purchased on Folly Beach that boasted beautiful views. We were intrigued and the next week we drove down to see it, and we were hooked on Folly! The town homes at Water's Edge are classic Charlestonian homes on the Folly River. When we stay, we love that we can walk to town, shops, the pier, restaurants, as well as ride our bikes all over the island. Folly is a unique beach town that draws people from all walks of life.

What makes this townhome unique

Our great location enables you to enjoy all Folly has to offer. You can go paddle boarding/kayaking; deep sea fishing; biking; shark tooth hunting (you might even find a Megladon!); beach combing; surfing. Stop by the Folly Farmer's Market, eat breakfast at the Lost Dog, listen to live music at one of the many establishments ... and if you want a change of scene, be sure to drive into Charleston, which is only 15 minutes from our home, where there are great restaurants, wonderful tours, and friendly people.

Charming, well located house with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Hosts were super-organized and accommodating. Space worked very well for the family of 7 adults at Christmas. Folly Island is a fun town with lots of things very nearby plus Charleston treats are easily accessible. Views and porch areas were great! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Our New Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Just the right mix of cozy and classy! We enjoyed a four day extended winter weekend and did not want to leave. Loved the view of the water from the family room and screened in back porch! First time at Folly Beach and loved how close the restaurants and beach are to this lovely townhome.

Awesome Home & Location - Loved Folly & Water's Edge!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Water' Edge town home. The house is very clean and comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach & restaurants in town. We spent most of our time at beach & pool, but also went into Charleston several times. Charleston, a short drive away, is a beautiful & interesting city. I highly recommend staying at this town home & enjoying the beautiful area of Folly Beach & Charleston!

Perfect place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this place to the beach and to the city of Charleston was perfect. Our girls loved to be able to get around Foley Beach on the bikes and the extra beach equipment available was perfect. We enjoyed the pool, time of the screened in porch and access to the private pier. We also appreciated the recommendations for places to eat and things around the area to do. For anyone who loves tea, we would definitely recommend a trip to the Charleston Tea Plantation. We also loved our day trip into Charleston.

Amazing location and superb property for fun Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Water's Edge, and we loved this unit. It is so tastefully decorated, comfortable, and modern. Enjoyed the river views from the great screened porch, and so nice to walk everywhere we wanted because we never needed to drive!! The owners were especially wonderful with helpful Folly Beach suggestions, etc. and also very easy to interact with. Highly recommend and will come back!! Thanks.

We are an easy 15-minute drive to Charleston and a short 4-block walk through quiet, tree-lined streets to six miles of beautiful public beach. Other islands nearby to visit include Edisto Beach, Kiawah, Sullivan's Island, and Isle of Palms. You'll find a different flavor at each one!
