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.

Such a wonderful retreat in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful vacation home as a quiet retreat for family during our wedding week on Folly Beach. It was a perfect cozy home base for our parents and a few other of our extended family. The home is well kept and very nicely decorated. Everything you might need was there and all the home's amenities were in perfect working order.

The location is very nice for a stay on Folly beach, only 5 blocks from center street and all the cute shops, restaurants and the beautiful pier. Charles was a great host, with very helpful communication in advance of our stay. We would rent this property again in a heart beat and hope to do so again one day!

Charming beach house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of "grown Kids". It has everything you need and more. Fairly large kitchen and dining area, comfortable beds, great air conditioning! Lots of bells and whistles included in this charming beach house. There's a large deck to view the stars while you listen to the ocean at night. Walk across the street to the beach! Charles, the owner was fabulous. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my small beach wedding. The owner was fabulous to work with. He really thinks about guest comfort. There are several air conditioners throughout the house that allow for personal temperature control. The lay out of the house allows for everyone to find their own space. The back yard was spacious and private. It made for a beautiful reception. We could not have asked for a better location and will definitely be back to stay at this house!!

The Wright House was perfect for The "GOOD" Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay in this wonderful home! We had a great week planning a small wedding on the beach with wonderful reception in the backyard! It was perfect! The house has so much room, you can really have your own space! We loved everything about it! Our hope to go back in the future! The best part was Mr. Wright and how pleasant he was to work with, he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed! So don't hesitate if you are looking for a great home close to everything! Loved the back in time feeling of a small beach town!!

Great location - relaxing beach house

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week in this lovely beach house that gets an A+ in all areas. Great location for every interest. Close to beach walkover, easy walk to town and pier, around the corner from the marina where we tied up our boat. The owners' love for the property is apparent. They have done a great job of evolving a traditional low country beach cottage into a modern and well appointed house without losing the charm of the past. Excellent kitchen to cook in. Had a great time with family - miss it already.
