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.

Fantastic Beach House in Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5

The Folly Beach house was great. It fit our 2 families of 4 very nicely. It was really close to the beach and it was a very comfortable experience. The owner was very attentive, the house was clean and there was enough space for everyone. Wifi worked well, the washer and dryer and air conditioning worked perfectly. Overall, it was a terrific experience.

The owner provided great customer experience and recommended restaurants and provided anything that we needed such as toilet paper. The house was located about 1/2 mile from town which was fine. The beach was right across the street. The street in front of the house was very busy but that was the only downside and it wasn't an issue. Being 20-25 minutes from Charleston was a plus and we spent a couple of days going back and forth to that great city.

If you want a nice and casual week at the beach, this house was great.

Great house at Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the lovely house on W. Ashley in Folly Beach. The house was very well kept and very comfortable. We especially liked the two master bedroom suites. Our family enjoyed the close proximity to the beach walk and the wide and very beautiful beach. Even though it was June there were very few people on the beach, providing much privacy and solitude.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a comfortable, spacious beach house with everything we could possibly need for our week. There were six adults and 3 children, one a toddler, and plenty of room to spread out for privacy, but room for us all to be together. The backyard was a great place for the kids to play if they weren't at the beach, or exploring the area. Beach access was right across the street, and Charles has plenty of beach chairs which I was so thankful for. Our cars were packed, and beach chairs would not have fit. I rented a bike, and was close enough to bike down to the County Park and beachcomb. The pier and Center Streeet were within walking distance. The playground around the corner was a great place to let the kids hang out. I loved this beach house. It was just what we needed for our three family trip. Thank you Charles for sharing this beach house, I know how much it means to you, and now, it feels a little like our home as well.

Wonderful- clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect size for our family. We loved the short walk across to the beach. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was nice and big to gather people around for meals. There was every appliance that we needed. We liked the beach chairs and the zero gravity chairs for reading on the front porch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Improbable points:We had trouble getting the Internet a few times, and in certain rooms. The lid of the coffee pot might need replaced. The remotes didn't work but we used the buttons on the box below. Charles was accessible and helpful welcoming us. We would rent there again.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation in the house with our group of 10. The proximity to the beach was great and we enjoyed the deck for lounging too. The dining table seats 10 and was our hub. The living room/porch was too small for our group. Everything in the house was in good working order. Charles is a very responsive owner and was very helpful all through the rental process. Beach chairs were provided( BYO beach towels). The two big bedrooms have king mattresses and the two smaller bedrooms have queens and share a bathroom(FYI). There was always warm water available which was important with teenage girls!!

We rented bicycles from Folly Adventures.com. They were very friendly and dropped bikes off and picked them up at the end of the vacation (no extra cost).

We love Folly as a comfortable family oriented vacation location. We'll be back!
