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. 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 Folly Beach

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.

Map

Car: necessary

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!

Amazing Rental

  • 5 of 5

We took our family vacation here summer of 2007. I have never stayed in such a beautiful and nice rental. We will for sure rent again in the future. This home has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Its a relaxing home. My favorite was the screened in porch!! I spent most of my mornings and nights sitting on that porch. This rental is for sure home away from home! The owners are super friendly people. I'd like to thank them for allowing us to rent their home. My family will never forget our first trip to Folly Beach!!! This home made our vacation perfect!

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.

Perfect Place with an Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I headed down to Folly Beach after spending 3 nights in Myrtle Beach. We were so happy to get away for the tourist trap and really felt like we lived in Folly. The home was nicely equipped and comfortable for the 4 of us. My girls were very happy to have their own bedroom and bathroom! We loved the bikes and rode all over the island. At night we walked around the corner to town for dinner and drinks. The pool was a great feature too. It was hot out and the pool was a welcome relief. The proximity to Charleston was amazing and we went back and forth 3 times. I highly recommend this place and we look forward to a return trip!

Owner's Response: Marcelle, Glad to have you and your family and that Folly felt like home! I think one of our favorite things to do on the island is biking, too - it's so easy to get around and explore that way. We look forward to having you back in the future. Take care, Elizabeth
