James Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description


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 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 :)

Great Oceanfront House!

  • 5 of 5

Being able to see and hear the waves rolling into the beach is one of our favorite parts of a beach trip. This house has a great deck to relax on at the end of the day or enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise over the water in the morning. The house is clean, well stocked and very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about Lizz. She was awesome to work with and always responded quickly. I am already checking my calendar for a return trip!

We love being near the water so we couldn't have found a better location with a short drive to Charleston. "Gramps Getaway" was a relaxing setting that was wonderful for walks on the beach and shell collecting with a great porch or deck to sit on, relax and watch the waves roll in. The owner Lizz was always quick to respond to our emails and very helpful. We had a great vacation! Thanks Lizz!

The Atlantic Ocean is right at the back deck. My husband and I and our two toy poodles loved sitting on the deck each morning and night and looking at the ocean...In the afternoon we watched the surfers.....The sound of the waves just put us to sleep....We have rented a lot of vacation condos and hotel rooms, but this was a one of a kind experience...It was very private and quiet...We met the nicest people walking the beach each day...In fact, you will not meet nicer people than the residents of Folly Beach. This is truly an adorable oceanfront beach cottage in a neat beach town...The cottage is clean and fully equipped and very comfortable...Worth the money...Lizz, the owner was very friendly and honest........We intend to stay here again......LOVED THE TOWN..LOVED THE COTTAGE.

Best Honeymoon ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was more than ideal! We had an absolutely wonderful visit! The house was clean, orderly, well equipped (i.e. Kitchen supplies, 3 TVs, plenty of chairs, nice new shower, stove, grill, various toys for the water - buckets, floats, etc), and an awesome sun room overlooking the ocean. We saw Dolphins swimming right in front of the house every day. The light house is a nice short walk down the beach from the house. One of my favorite amenities is that there's an outside shower with hot and cold water so you can shower off before going inside. The beds are comfortable as well! Lots of good food near by or easy to cook right at home. We really enjoyed having our dogs with us! We will definitely be coming back!!

Great location and cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and Folly Beach! My husband and our little 9lb. Yorkie are always looking for pet friendly and beach friendly places to stay. This cottage had it ALL. The cottage is older but very comfortable and clean(reminded me of my childhood). The bathroom is completely remodeled and new! The view and beach access are AMAZING. The cottage is located at the private end of the beach which we loved. Folly Beach has a variety restuarants with any kind of food you could want. We had the best taco ever at Taco Boy! Harris-Teeter grocery store is right before the bridge going onto Folly Beach. Its kinda of hidden in the shopping plaza so make sure you look for it. We did a couple of day trips into Charelston it was very easy to get around from Folly Beach. We would definately come back to this cottage and Elizabeth was very fast with any response to a question we had before and during our stay! We had no issue's with getting our deposit back.

Great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Gramp's Getaway Beach Cottage! We loved the oceanfront view and sitting on the spacious deck. The cottage is very cute and had everything we needed. We also loved being on the quiet end of the island and being able to walk to where you can see the lighthouse. The beach was never crowded the whole week we were there. We already made our reservations to go back next year!
