Overview

Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

You never know when you will make a memory, but memories are sure to be made in this comfortable cottage. Perfect for small families or couples who want an intimate, convenient beach vacation-come and go from the beach without driving, worrying about parking, or walking very far. Feel the fresh trade winds on the veranda of this newly renovated second row beach bungalow with magnificent ocean views from screened porch and living room, bedroom and kitchen. Only 50 feet from beach access. Uniquely decorated throughout to give you that special Folly feeling.

Welcome to Folly! We have tried to make it fun and friendly, like we remember the beach growing up, but for convenience we have included wi-Fi internet access, flat screen TV with full cable access and DVD player, all appliances including washer/dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen.

This three bedroom central air and heat home offers two bedrooms with a queen bed, and the third bedroom designed with children in mind has a trundle bed which can either be used as two twin beds or one queen bed.

Bring your boat--plenty of off street parking, and the county maintained boat landing is minutes away. With luck you will have fish to grill for supper--either from the creeks or from surf fishing.

Feel like a native--when you come from the beach, take a shower underneath the house in the outdoor shower--out of view but still outdoors.

Take time to make a memory that you can remember with a smile. Folly can be a great experience for everyone.

Folly Beach is convenient to everything you need: This home is only six blocks from downtown Folly with shopping and dining, and a short drive to historic downtown Charleston for those day trips, or evenings to enjoy the Charleston scene. Where you will always find many great restaurants and bars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your home! Folly Beach was amazing. We came home relaxed and eager to go again! Everything was clean and comfortable. My husband and I especially enjoyed being able to chat on the screened in porch at night after our son went to bed. It was quiet for most of our stay, we didn't have neighbors until the last night. Anyway, we really enjoyed our stay and thanks again for letting us stay there!

Perfect for a Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect house for me and 5 of my bridesmaids for a little getaway girls weekend to celebrate my upcoming wedding in September. The house is stocked with everything you could think of (REALLY appreciated the abundance of bath towels!). It has the perfect quirky folly style that every mix-matched beach house should have. Beach access is right across the street - we beached every day we were there. Walk to town isn't bad either, maybe about a mile, but a very enjoyable walk - we did it often. I'd maybe recommend renting golf carts if you have small kids or older family members. Tons of beach chairs and the outdoor shower is awesome. Screened in front porch was were we hung the most. Made dinner at home one night and had PLENTY of cups, silverware, plates, etc. Basically anything you could think of, this house already has! This was our first time traveling to Folly and we all agreed we will all definitely be back - awesome surfer town with a boho vibe.

PS Lost Dog for breakfast is where it's at !

We loved this house and Folly Beach! Our trip was very relaxing. The screen porch was a major plus & we enjoyed hanging out on the side of the house using the grill. The house had everything we needed for cooking and was well stocked with towels. Beach access is right across the street. The walk to Center Street isn't bad... 6 blocks and tons of amazing houses to admire on the way. You can rent golf carts for about $65 per day. Serenity Tree Yoga held classes on the beach 3 of the days we were there. Their website gives schedule updates. I highly recommend starting your morning with the class (all level, basic, relaxing) right at the beach access across from the house. The neighborhood was pretty quiet but it was also the 2nd week of May. There were 2 other groups near us on the beach every day. Highly recommend this house and hope to come back every year!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being a terrific guest in my home! It is good to know everyone had a great time. I agree to me the house is a great location at the "quite end of the beach" even when it is packed! I hope to hear from you again. Have a wonderful summer and be safe. Kay

Cute House, So Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for four nights. The house is perfect for two couples, and one other person at most. We absolutely loved the front screened in porch and spent every evening sitting there playing games. The beach access is directly across the street. It was really easy to walk downtown to restaurants and shops. The fully stocked kitchen was perfect for cooking meals at the house as well!

Such a cute getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a bachelorette party and could not have had a more amazing time. The location is great, walking distance to town (just not in heels). And beach access was right across the street. Kay was very nice and easy to work with. Would definitely stay here again!

Sweet Little Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in this sweet little beach house! My husband and I live in Charleston, but thought some time at the beach with my brother and his family (visiting from Chicago) would be relaxing for their visit. The house is adorable and contained everything we could possibly need during our stay! From the fully-supplied kitchen with pots and dishes to the beach chairs and sand toys. We spent a lot of time enjoying the lovely screened front porch and the kids certainly took advantage of the books/games available. It was a thoroughly fun experience!

Bring your boat--plenty of off street parking, and the county maintained boat landing is minutes away. With luck you will have fish to grill for supper--either from the creeks or from surf fishing. Feel like a native--when you come from the beach, take a shower underneath the house in the outdoor shower--out of view but still outdoors. This is a smoke free house. What you do in the yard is your business. No pets. Go to McKevlins (a Folly landmark) and rent a surf board, or sign up for surfing lessons. Go the other direction to Folly Beach County Park, where lifeguards are on duty and the county rents boogie boards, umbrellas and bikes. Plenty of good restaurants.
