Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

The Compound - This Place

Come on in…surf- n- stay a week or maybe two!

From the moment you arrive at “This Place” @ The Compound, you feel it. It’s unlike anything else. This inviting and beachy-cool stylish bungalow gives you a private sanctuary to escape and unwind. This classic 1920’s bungalow has been recently renovated to enhance the true Funky Folly vacation experience. This exciting, fresh and original bungalow is located a few blocks away from the beach, park and nightlife. “This Place” is the perfect getaway for all walks of life and occasions. It’s truly the fun spot to stay here on Folly Beach.

The kitchen, dining and living areas are all connected in one bright and open space with large boardwalk tile floors throughout. Catch a fish and prepare a great meal in the kitchen a chef could enjoy. Well-equipped with cooking utensils, stainless steel appliances, deep farmhouse sink and butcher-block countertops. The living area offers a flat-screen TV and two bunk beds. Look up and admire the nostalgic feel of the original exposed beams that span part of the ceiling. The bedroom holds a Queen bed and has access to the back porch which includes an outdoor shower to wash the sand off your toes. The bathroom is a large European open-concept shower with a ceiling rainfall shower head, hand held shower, concrete sink and another porch access door.

Relax outside on the back or front porches! The front porch completes the beach hip attitude with the surfboard bar top. Conveniently open up the French windows to pass a drink from the kitchen to the porch. This is a pet-friendly home as well (with $125 pet fee) so be sure to include your furry friend on your vaca!

Check out That Place at The Compound as well listed on VRBO!! It is also Pet Friendly and available to rent - VRBO 508059

About The Owner

Welcome to Folly Beach!

I sincerely hope you enjoy your time here on what I consider the quintessential of beach towns. Folly is all about the simple things in life- spending time with family and friends, wearing t-shirts and flip flops, and eating and drinking too much. The way a beach vacation is suppose to be.

In 2010 I was practicing architecture struggling with the recession when I was overtaken by my idea that would soon change my life. The idea was The Compound.

As life continued forward I found that The Compound helped me navigate through the good times and bad, stay true to my ideals along the way and make the best out of this adventure we call life.

The Compound is truly a dream come true. I want this to be a place where you and your family create lasting memories. Whether it was the morning you caught your first wave, or the day you swam with the dolphins. Because everyone can enjoy it differently, I decided to start The Compound family so you too can create memories, in your own way..

Once again, welcome to the family. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to make your time here more memorable. Most importantly, RELAX and have FUN - your on vacation!

The property is charming, close to the beach and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

I offer the following suggestions: replace the two chairs in the great room with comfortable chairs. Add a small dresser in the bedroom to store some clothing and a place to put watch, glasses, etc at night. Would like towel racks for drying towels. The wash stand is cool but not practical. Would like to have a place for cosmetics, hair brush, etc. could have used a good reading lamp at end of couch. We did enjoy our stay and would recommend to others.

Cutest beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time at The Compound! It's about half a mile to Center Street - where all the restaurants and shops are located, and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. It was absolutely perfect for us. All the little touches of This Place are what make it so unique. Would stay here again and again! Thanks for everything Jason!

Car: recommended

Folly Beach SC is located just a short 15 minutes south of downtown Charleston and is the closet beach community to historical Charleston. Folly Beach’s laid back lifestyle and vibe reminds many of Key West. It is the quintessential of beach towns with a slogan that reads….. “Relax it’s Folly”. Its close proximity and eclectic lifestyle attract both residents and visitors from all over. The bustling commercial district on Center Street is always abuzz with the great smells of wonderful restaurants, vintage beach and surf shops.
