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 Folly Beach

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.

Communication and property are fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is quick to respond, and easy to work with. Any question- he had answers (easy). Gave us ample suggestions on things to do, places to go, where to find more....Charles definitely made the stay much more enjoyable!

The house was more than ample for our party of 10 (including the 2 kids). Plenty of room, linens, dishes, kitchen gadgets galore! The location is walkable to downtown,the beach is literally 2 man to walk to On The Sand. The lighthouse and county park are at opposite ends of the island, but both warrant a stroll.

We planned this trip to visit all Charleston had to offer for the holidays, and really only spent one day off Folly Beach.

Thank you Charles! You and your childhood house was a true Joy!!!

Thanksgiving with the Family - Nov. 2017

  • 5 of 5

Charles place was excellent for our Thanksgiving away in South Carolina! Plenty of room, proximity to walking the beach at sunrise and sunset was excellent. Whole family of all ages (from Grandparents to kids) enjoyed the house and Folly Beach/Charleston! Charles was very helpful throughout the whole process. Thank you Charles!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for a girl's weekend and it was great. The location is amazing, we could see the ocean from the beautiful front porch and were within walking distance to the restaurants on Folly. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this house for those looking to stay on Folly.

Great retro house within minutes of the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! While we only had five people it would have easily accommodated 10. The retro front room was comfortable and the front deck was very nice. It was the perfect location...we were four blocks from town and four blocks from out wedding down the street. I worked out great for us and I would book it again!

The best home on Folly Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our host Charles was cordial and caring. We really like that he called us a few days before our arrival to review the visit. He also called us on the first day to make sure we got in safely. It was nice that he welcomed us with a friendly phone call. It made us feel comfortable right from the start.

The house has a lovely balance of being both charming and fun. We are a group of 5 couples (no kids) from Boston. There was more than enough room. Only 2 couples had to share a room. Since the bedroom is so big, it was not a problem at all. The kitchen is huge. It is stocked with lots of the essentials, such as cutlery, plates, cups, etc. All 10 of us ate breakfast and dinner in the dining room each day. The one big table made us feel like one big family. Each bedroom is a little different. The photos are really as beautiful in person as they are in the website photos. The beds are like sleeping on clouds. The prized bedroom is the one at the top of the stylish spiral staircase. You will feel like royalty. My favorite room was the TV room. (The one with the turtle artwork on the ceiling.) Sunday night we had a Game of Thrones night with guacamole and chips. The TV is so wide and modern it is incredible. What a treat!

You can hear the waves quietly crashing in the distance from the spacious balcony. Each morning, and a few times at dusk, we took walks along the beach. Access to the beach is super close -- literally about a one minute walk. The sand is soft. The water is warm. Paradise.

On the ride back to the airport, we all agreed this was one of the best vacations ever. We cannot thank Charles enough for making his home feel like ours -- only better. Such a pleasurable stay!

It was an absolute joy!!
