About the property

This lowcountry jewel is one of the original Folly Beach cottages. There are three bedrooms(1 queen, 1 full, 2 twins). 1 bath(updated in '12). Nice open floor plan. Heart of pine wood floors through out. Screened in front porch. Nice back yard. New addition of big backyard deck. Kitchen fully set up to cook if you like. There is a back door off the kitchen, that takes you onto to the large deck. There are built in benches, as well as a patio table and 4 chairs. We do have grill in the back yard as well. It's fun to sit out there, and listen to the sound of the ocean. Classic screened in front porch.

The location of this home is why we purchased it. Although it sits in a nice, quiet part of the island. It's very close to everything you want access to. The beach is only a 3 short block, walk. Two blocks to Center St. where all the restaurants, and shopping are located on Folly. Folly Beach Park, for the kids, is within walking distance too. Tennis courts/Basketball court there as well. Bert's grocery market is within walking distance too!! Our home is on a full lot, with a nice back yard.

This home has the charm of the Lowcountry. Very comfortable and cozy. Home surrounded by palms, and a trophy live oak, that is easily over 100 yrs. old.

This part of the island is also great for biking, or renting a golf cart while you are here. Enough room to park a boat trailer in the back yard. Up to 20' or so. Folly River Boat Landing is very close.

The Historic District of Charleston is only 20 minutes away by car.

About Lee Swing

I moved to Charleston, SC from Wilmington, NC. I went to school at UNCW and graduated with an Environmental Science degree., and fell in love with the coast. Ended up in real estate. Working for real estate for developers, it has taken me, up and down the coast from NC, to FL. I met my beautiful wife in Charleston, and we are now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the city of Asheville raising our family.

Lee Swing purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Lee Swing chose Charleston Area

When i first moved to Charleston, i rented a home on Folly Beach. It had such a great, laid back feel, unlike other beaches that i have lived before. The home i had rented, had a similar location to 303 E.Huron, close to center st., and a short walk down to the beach. When i was shopping for a home, those criteria were very important. I also love trees, and the old mature palms blowing in the breeze was also a very welcome sound to me. There is a trophy live oak(huge canopy) that is very indicative of the south, that greets you as you pull in to the home.

What makes this cottage unique

The walk down to Center St. is relaxing as you take in the scenery, and before you know it, you are in the middle of all the shopping, and great places to eat. The Folly Crabshack is a favorite for local seafood, or for twist, go to the new Taco Boy restaurant. A walk on the pier after dinner for ice cream is a given. The location is what you will like about this home, convenient to everything, but on a quiet street on Folly. Also to drive to downtown Charleston from here is very scenic, and only 20 minutes away.

Fantastic Stay in Folly!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week at Folly Beach. It was the most relaxing vacation we had in a while. The house was perfect for my family! It is very well taken care of and I have to say that it is one of the best stocked houses we have ever rented. The beds were super comfortable, the front porch was a nice retreat to have an evening cocktail or to just relax with your morning coffee. Having the washer and dryer is always a bonus! The location surpassed my expectations. The kids and adults alike loved walking to the beach, into town, to the park to play or to take the dogs to the dog park. There was not a single complaint all week and that says a lot when we are talking about a 6 and 4 year old! They are already asking us when they can go back! I would highly recommend this house and look forward to coming back again soon! Thank you for the great memories! - The Moran's

Fine property for our group of four adults plus our dog.

  • 5 of 5

A nicely sized property for our family and dog. Great location - a few minute walk to the beach and within walking distance to stores in the business district and the fishing pier. The deck would have been pleasant to use if not for the unseasonably cool weather. A short drive into downtown Charleston and Patriots Point. The property is located in a quiet area away from the main street.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this house once a year since 2013. We love the house, and Lee is great work with.

Unfortunately we had to cut this year's stay short due to Hurricane Matthew. However, the hurricane policy was very reasonable, and we felt very fortunate after talking to other vacationers leaving the island who were just out of luck.

The house itself is awesome. The beds are incredibly comfortable, and the house is peaceful and relaxing.

Every year there's some kind of improvement to the house, not that it has ever been bad, it's just obvious they're continually working to make it even better.

Living The Life!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our little Yorkie really enjoyed our week at this quaint cottage. The neighborhood is charming and quiet. This is the ideal place for rest and relaxation. The house and all it offers, make you feel like you are at the beach many years ago. We rented a golf cart and enjoyed riding around in the evenings. Our Yorkie loved his walks through the neighborhood, as well as seeing all the other dogs on their walks. He also loved his walks on the beach. If you are looking to party and make noise, this is not the place for you. If you are looking to relax and be carefree, then look no further. Many thanks to Mr. Swing for allowing us to share his little piece of heaven-at the beach!
