About Charles

Our beach home has been in our family for over sixty years. We grew up in the Charleston area. My Mom first purchased the unit as beach rental property, then retired in the home in the mid 1990's. I am the second generation owner. Please enjoy our home with your family and friends.

Charles purchased this house in 1948

Why Charles chose Charleston Area

My Mom purchased this property in 1948 as a single, twenty year old based on the recommendations of her Pastor. Reverend Pridgen had purchased a beach front home five lots away and felt this would be a great investment. I grew up changing the sheets and mowing the grass every Saturday morning in the summer. My mom rented the home for $75 per week.

What makes this house unique

Wood flooring in all bedrooms, quiet ceiling fans, red metal roof, re-insulated home, with new lighting, sink/vanity, cabinets in bathrooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been enjoying Folly for the past six years and our two weeks this year were no different- absolutely wonderful! The weather was gorgeous and we took full advantage of it each day. We patiently watched the 13 turtle nests on the beach hoping to witness a "hatching and journey back to the sea." The "babies" were not ready during our stay. We picked up the ocean's treasures near the light-house and at the state park. Our 10yr old and his father went out fishing from Charleston Harbor and he caught a 4 ft shark-reeled him in alone! Our 18 yr old, 10 yr old and father spent a day kayaking and fishing along the Wando River with their guide-great dad and son time. Fourth of July fireworks were beautiful. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We had enough room for us all to be together and enough for each of us to have our own quiet time. The little white lights around the porch and palm tree add just the right amount of "whimsy." Great deck at night. Our bodies remain in Irmo, SC but, our hearts are always at Folly.

Winter at Folly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for the entire month of January 2017. This was our second winter escape to Folly Beach and at the same home. We love the easy access to the beach and the short distance to downtown Folly and all the great restaurants. The house has everything you need from the comfortable beds to fully stocked kitchen. We bring our bikes with us and can ride the entire island with ease this time of the year. We lucked into beautiful weather with only a few rainy days and used the lovely front deck nearly every day. Charles updated with new comfy deck furniture too! This area offers much to see as well, with a short 20 minute drive to Charleston and a number of wildlife refuges within an hour or so. If you haven't visited Folly Beach, you should as it is the best beach in SC. We will return!! Thanks Charles for keeping the quaint cottage feel to your home, we really enjoy it.

Enjoyable Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our Spring Break week in this comfortable Folly Beach house. The deck out front was a particular fun place to hang out & get some good sun. There was plenty of room for all of us. The Kitchen was big and had all of the appliances necessary for our use. The space under the house was big and can easily accommodate 4 cars. We utilized the grill a couple of times. It was very convenient. The beach access was very close and made for a good morning or evening walk on the beach. I would stay here again. Charles was very accommodating & easily accessible.

The only negative were the beds were a little hard compared to what we are used to.

Owner's Response: Hey Chris, Thank you. The only thing I can add, would be the beds are fairly new. The California Kings are in service less than two years. Thank you, Charles

Perfect in every way! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, well-appointed, gorgeous house with all the outdoor space we craved as New Yorkers! We went for a 40th birthday "girls weekend" and everything was wonderful. Charles was always available (though we had no problems) and is obviously a very experienced host. The area is super nice and an easy walk to town, and we loved falling asleep listening to the waves crashing on the beach. Very comfy beds, too! And so clean! We had a car, but we also used Uber/Lyft a few times as well, so next time we might not bring a car. This will be our first choice for future visits to Folly Beach and Charleston.

A comfortable home with a prime folly beach location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great choice for anyone looking to stay close to the beach and amenities on folly. Its just a few blocks from the restaurants and shops, while also being located across the street from a public beach access. The front porch offers a great place to relax and the dining room has a large table that could seat our whole family. I would definitely stay here again.

A clean and sweet seaside bugalow!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful off-season (but beautifully warm) stay at Charles's cottage. Everything was extremely well appointed and it great working order. The beds were super comfortable, the electronics were great (A/C or heat, TVs, wifi and such). It's a home that clearly has great memories and is not overly pretentious but serves well. We were super grateful for Charles's constant attention & care.

Great location, clean house, and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

First off, this was our first trip to Folly and WILL NOT be our last. Charles has a great house on the main drag, and was a great guy to deal with the entire time. Booking was easy and the rental price was more than fair. My wife and our seven kids wanted a quiet Thanksgiving without cooking or cleaning up, and with quality time spent together. Folly Beach is the perfect spot. Twenty minutes from downtown Charleston, and 100 steps to the beach for sunrise and sunsets. The house had plenty of room, a great family room with a flat screen to watch the football games, and a front deck that we spent many a morning and evening on playing card games or just looking at the stars. This house was a six block walk from the main intersection of Folly, so it was quiet in the morning and late evenings which made it nice, but it was close enough to walk to breakfast at Lost Dog or the now famous (in our minds) Tokyo Crepes. The vibe in Folly is the coolest, and we just loved the people. The food and drinks were excellent as well, so if you come to the city of Folly Beach for a week, you will NEVER have to leave. As far as the rental goes, the location was literally 100 steps from the beach, and perfect for ALL of our kids. We gave the teens the upstairs bedroom and bathroom, so we did not have to climb the spiral staircase, and we used the main floor. The kitchen had plenty of amenities, and the new bathroom on the main floor was perfectly decorated. If there was any issues Charles was one call away. This was NOT a fancy mansion on the beach, but the house fits the exact what we needed, and is the perfect place to stay in Folly Beach. If there was any complaint at all in FB, it was that the cars drive WAY too fast on Ashley Ave, but that is beyond the control of the homeowner. Great Time!
