About the property


SALE SALE SALE! $1000/week rental fees (that's $350 in SAVINGS) on December and January bookings!

Please be patient with me as vrbo's last update affected the rates and location section for this property and I'm working hard to correct this issue! I will always confirm prices when you message me though. Thank you for understanding!

Located minutes from the Morris Island Light House, come escape to this cozy, yet peaceful cottage tucked away at the east end of Folly Beach. With your own private walkway out to the sand, you will lose track of time while bathing in the sunshine!

This property is 800 sq ft and is ideal for 2 couples vacationing together, just one couple or a family of 3-4. Wifi and HD cable are available. The two bedrooms (one queen size and one full size bed) are side by side. They are not extremely spacious, but more than adequate for a week at the beach. Both bedrooms have a closet with coat hangers and a chest of drawers.

Linens and bath towels/wash cloths are provided for the two beds and there is a laundromat on W. Hudson.

The kitchen is stocked with plates, bowls, cups, silverware, pots and pans. Cleaning supplies are available for daily 'tidying up.'

There is a comfy hammock on the deck looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean.

My family has owned this beach house since the 1970's and this is our first attempt at renting to vacationers. We hope to accommodate all of our guests, and since we are local, we are willing to go out of our way to do so.

Thank you for taking the time to view our listing :)

All the comforts of home with a stunning ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to South Carolina. We will definitely be back and look forward to our return to Gramp's Getaway. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We ate most meals at "home" and found the kitchen to have plenty of cookware to meet our needs. The cottage was within walking distance from the lighthouse. We also liked that it was located a short distance from town, but far enough away when we needed a break after a busy day of taking in the sites of Charleston. The best feature of the cottage is the sun porch. We woke up every morning and enjoyed coffee while taking in the beautiful sunrise. We caught a few naps on the futon as it was hard to resist with the sun shining in the porch. Finally, our stay was perfect thanks to the property manager, Lizz. She was extremely responsive and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area when we had questions.

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

Much needed trip for my dog and I. Gramp's Place was perfect!! Nice to have the screened in porch and the open deck. At high tide you could almost touch the ocean. At low tide you can walk the beach forever. I loved this perfect little cottage. Thank you Elizabeth Taylor! We really enjoyed it! 😎

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is almost at the end of the beach, very near the lighthouse. We had so much privacy and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The surf is so close, so even when inside you have a beautiful view and the sound of the ocean. The house itself was perfect for us: clean and cozy. And Lizz was lovely to communicate with - even brought us some extra bedding so my son could sleep on the futon on the sun porch. Downtown Folly's restaurants never disappointed - many really good places to choose from. Several even deliver so you can enjoy an easy dinner on your own deck. Great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves and it was no problem at all bringing you some extra sheets! The walk to the lighthouse certainly is a great experience. You are welcome back any time!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in need of some sun and warm and planned a last minute trip to Folly Beach. Lizz was amazing from the beginning and made sure our stay at Gramp's Getaway was perfect. The house is well stocked and located in a perfect spot...right on the beach yet close to town! The surfing was great and the locals are warm and friendly! We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad we could allow you the escape from the snow that you needed! And I REALLY appreciate the Wicked Whoopie Pies you left for me! Life-changing! Your family is splendid and of course, you're welcome back any time. Thank you so much for the kind words!

We love this place and Liz is an amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Gramp's Getaway about half a dozen times in the past few years, and we can't wait to come back again soon. She does a great job of making you feel at home and we love the huge back deck that looks out directly onto the beach. Such a chill place to hang out and spend time walking on the beach, riding bikes, and relaxing. Thanks again Liz! You are the best.

Great Great Place if you Love the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a getaway with plenty of ocean sounds, views, beauty and peace and quiet to just enjoy life at the beach. Well If you want that on your vacation this is the place for you! Had all the above and more. You can't get any closer to the ocean unless you live in it. It was fabulous. Liz was on top of things if I had any questions or concerns so it is a very hands on rental. Had a blast see you next year. Hope everyone is ok from Hurricane Matthew!!! We will be praying for you guys.

Owner's Response: You are so sweet! Thank you! We are nearly up and running over here after the hurricane. The house has very minimal damage and the power should be restored in the coming days. All in all, a victory in my book! These storms are very unpredictable. We are so very blessed to still have our home! Overall, the island didn't suffer too much damage at all- considering. Thank you for worrying about us :) You are welcome back any time and I'm so glad y'all had such a great time! Talk soon!
