Inviting Folly Beach Private Home/3 Bedrooms/3 Full Baths/ Perfect Location
Originally built by Joe back when time moved a little slower, summer days seemed to melt into one another and family and friends gathered on porches to enjoy light conversation and cocktails while benefiting from the evening breeze. This lovely, updated 1950's private home helps you step back into a simpler time, curling up with a good book, living shoeless and never needing to get into your car unless you absolutely must leave the Island.

Equipped with a fully stocked kitchen for all your dining/food preparation needs. The kitchen opens up directly to the front wrap around porch and also to a lovely seating area inside. Perfect layout for friends and family to gather while the chef prepares the evening meal, while not being excluded from the conversations and happenings of the day. Off of the kitchen you will find the main living room along with a Smart Flat Screen TV for all your viewing needs. This home has Direct TV and WIFI. Dining Room is directly off and open to the main living room. Dining Table is set for six people and there's additional seating for three at the bartop in the adjacent kitchen area.

About Michael Ray
This home is owned by the original family who built it in the 1950's. Since that time children have grown, had children of their own who now they too have added to the family! It's been a family destination for decades. Withstood the wrath of Hurricane Hugo. Been a sanctuary in good times and bad. What a blessing to be able to share this special destination with others.
Michael Ray purchased this House in 1950
Why Michael Ray chose Folly Beach
Homes have come and gone on Folly but this one has withstood the test of time. It is loved, well maintained, clean, inviting and comfortable with the charm and grace that you expect from a classic southern home. It is the perfect destination for a group of friends or family. Once you park your car you may never need to get back in it. You can easily walk to the beach, pier, shops, restaurants and local grocery "Berts". While it's in such a convenient location it is also private with a large, shaded yard out back and private front yard. With two seating areas you get to have space for those who might want to watch a game on the TV while others enjoy conversation in the adjacent sitting room or directly off kitchen on the covered porch.
What makes this House unique
Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms is always a plus! Plenty of off street parking. Easily walk to all shops, restaurants, beach.

Online pictures do not do this charming house justice We loved it!
Beach is a very short walk away The home was immaculately clean and well equipped Owners are great to work with and have anticipated all of their guests needs We were a party of 6 adults and had plenty of space for all Love this house and love Folly!
Perfect Location in a Wonderful Town
We love Folly Beach, but this was our first stay at Joe's Folly. It could not have been better.
The original tiny bungalow has been expanded and has so much space. There were only three of us this time, but it would be great for a large or extended family. There is a large master on one side of the house, if your kids are old enough to be on the other, but there is also a large room adjacent to the kids' rooms if they are not. The little fenced yard is perfect for kids to run around while parents relax on the porch.
Most everything is within a short walk: the beach, the pier, the restaurants, the bars, and most important...Bert's, the handy 24/7 grocery for everything you forgot to bring. The parks at the two ends of the island are a long walk, or short bike/car ride away. Charleston is an easy drive, but once you are on Foley, you just might decide not to leave!
I was sold with the fenced in yard and outdoor shower and it only got better from there!
We found the perfect place for us! Easy walk from anywhere you'd want to be... restaurants, beach, shopping and the Pier. The layout of the house is perfect. Nice, large living area with plenty of privacy back in the bedrooms. Especially nice for kids that might be napping or have an earlier bedtime than the rest of the group! We were traveling with three portable cribs and had plenty of room to set them up without them being in the way. The Rays were so easy to correspond with and renting the residence was a breeze. We've made many trips to Folly but this trip and home made this one a favorite. A perfect home away from home!
House was perfect location and the layout was great! Will definitely come back!!! The house is so much cuter in person! The pictures do not show how roomy the house really is.
Great long weekend with the girls!
This house is so incredibly charming and is in a fantastic location! Easy drive into Charleston & and an easy walk to local restaurants and bars. I personally loved the outdoor shower! Hope to get the opportunity to come back to Folly & stay in this wonderful house again.
Perfect week at Joe's Folly
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Joe's Folly. We have stayed at Joe's Folly a couple times. This time was the most memorable. Weather was great, you can't beat the location...beach is a street away. We rented a golf cart and explored the island. The house has a fully stocked kitchen, house is clean and quaint. If you are looking for a vintage beach cottage, this is your house! Beadboard walls, comfortable furnishings and great fenced in yard. It truly was a great week at Joe's Folly!
Private, ground level home on Folly Beach. NO STAIRS to navigate! Plenty of off street parking. Just one street back from the beach. 2 blocks from restaurants and shops. 1 block from local grocery. This location is prime!
