About the property

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

Yes, the wedding weekend was just perfect in every way! The managers at Sunset Cay and at Snapper Jack's (despite the fire we could go ahead with our party) were wonderful to work with for our parties on Friday, and the beach sunset and moonrise were spectacular!

Your Little Blue House was just the right size for us and was in a very walkable location with easy access to town and a lovely stretch of beach. Because it had such a huge yard, parking was a breeze for us and for our guests. Even though there was just the one inside bathroom, having the half bath and outside shower downstairs made it very workable.

The house is quaint, comfortable and well-stocked, especially the kitchen. We could have used a few more bath towels, but it does have the washer/dryer so we were able to wash our towels a time or two. The most enjoyable part of the house was the wonderful screened porch! We gathered with friends and family there most mornings for coffee and several evenings for drinks, dinner and fellowship!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled down with 2 of our grandsons to see James Island county park holiday light show. Decided to look for a house in Folly Beach . Kids could enjoy playing on beach before visiting park at night. The bungalow fit our needs. The kids loved the screen porch and they tried out different bedrooms while we were there for a long weekend. House was very close to beach access. We played a few board games in porch. Kitchen seemed well equipped . We didn't really do cooking since I wanted to go to Taco Boy and Lost dog Cafe. Loved the separate coffee station. Hope to come back down with our other grandson once he gets a little older to see light show.

Very comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family which included married daughters. We could walk to the beach and town. Porch was great for reading and conversation. House very clean and had all the amenities. We loved it and think it truly showed us the Folly Beach we wanted to experience.

Quaint and really awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place! Sitting on the front porch (which is screened in) you can see the ocean and hear the waves crashing on the beach. We were going to be here the week that Irma came to visit, but had to reschedule. Other than the city trucks running up and down the road in the mornings, it is mostly quiet at the end of September, but still warm enough to sit on the beach and enjoy it without the beach being over crowded.

Kay the owner is a pleasure to deal with. She is friendly and quick to respond when you have a question or concern.

The house isn't a new house, but it is well maintained. It looked as though it was renovated not too long ago. She had just put new mattresses on the beds the week before we arrived.

Bed sheets, towels and washcloths were there, but no beach towels because of past experiences of hers that people would steal them. We have rented before from places that we would need to bring all our linens, so it was a bonus that we didn't have to bring any. Too bad there are the kind of people out there that have that "I paid for it so it's mine" kind of thinking and take what doesn't belong to them to ruin it for people that have common sense about them.

The property is family friendly & close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

By far, the personal touch and family orientated owner, Kay, absolutely made this vacation experience wonderful. We felt valued as customers. especially so, since we are a military family with a veteran onboard. As a large family, vacation comes only one week a year, so we appreciate an owner who is willing to accommodate a family in the most economical way. We enjoyed the lovely neat home, having everything we needed, even an air purifier for our son's asthma. After a very long drive, the check in was a snap and minutes later we were on the beach. The beach is but a few steps away and the walk path is directly in front of the home. We enjoyed cooking our meals and eating on the wonderful screened in porch. Internet access was easy to obtain and our children were able to check into the needs of their online school. The smaller children said the living room was their favorite spot of the home. The rooms were perfect for the teenagers and tweens. Vacation is important to our family because this gives us an opportunity to be with one another and grow stronger. The owner Kay saw to it that all of our needs were met outside of the normal impersonal robot correspondence...even while her husband had suffered an injury. We are very thankful we found this home and consider ourselves Blessed to have found Kay. Our stay here was perfect for our family and the very beautiful beach was medicine for the year!

Owner's Response: Your family and families such as yours are the reason that we have the comfort of our homes and the freedoms we take for granted. It was an honor to have your family as guest in my home. Thank each one of you for the sacrifices that you make in your lives. I hope to hear from you again. God Bless and keep you safe, Kay

We had a great time. Good for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nice beach house. Great location Perfect size for 6 adults. Just a short walk to the beach. Downtown Folly is I'm walking distance, but far enough away where the neighborhood is nice and quiet and relaxing. Great communication from the owner. We booked way in advance and she was always there to answer any questions. I would definitely return next time I'm in the area. Folly is a great beach town, the house was perfect for what wee needed and Charleston is not too far away.
