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.
