The first level living area has a large media room with 65” flat screen, 2 new sleeper sofas, beverage set up area and an extra fridge... all with ocean view! This area opens to an equally large, new kitchen. New stainless appliances, 6 burner gas stove, large island with sink and a 13 foot heart pine table.. plenty of seating for big family meals (and another flat screen TV)… all with ocean views.

This home is a short walk to Center Street with all the shopping and restaurants you need. This home is exactly what you expect, cozy furnishing, tasteful decor and views of the Atlantic that won't find anywhere else on Folly. If you wonder where the name of this home came from, here is the story: The Star of the West was a civilian ship hired by the United States government to transport military supplies and reinforcements to the garrison of Fort Sumter before the American Civil War. The first shots of the Civil War occurred January 9, 1861 when the Star of the West was fired upon by cadets, from The Citadel, who were stationed at the Morris Island battery as the ship entered Charleston Harbor. One of the cadets was related to the current homeowner making Folly a very special place for them and for everyone who stays here.

The Event Capacity is 100 people, any event larger that 65 people requires Port-A-Potty rental and you must submit event details and plans to Carolina One Vacation Rental Staff.

Please note that this home books exactly one year in advance and reserves first right to book to guest at the property.

Best house on Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several large houses on Folly over the years, and this one is by far the best. Large and spacious rooms, walking distance to downtown, helpful management, the house is clean and well-stocked with plenty of comfy chairs for everyone. Our group of 12 women had a wonderful reunion and we all fit at the dining table, as well as those rockers on the porch. We were all pretty impressed, would highly recommend to any group, large or small.

Wonderful Beach House for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this house. It is large enough for big groups to gather and enjoy...with plenty of room in the kitchen, den/living room and fabulous porch for everyone! The kitchen table sits 14, with the island seating another 8. The eight bedrooms are all very nice and roomy; beautifully decorated. The close proximity to the pier made for fun, short walks every day for young and old. This house was perfect for us and we will surely rent it again.

Beautiful setting for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the number of rooms because we wanted all of our family under one roof and have a bed! We fell in love with the charm of this home and the amount of space it provided! Our wedding took place on the small deck and all of our loved ones watched from the porch and sun deck. It was such a perfect setting for a small wedding (we had about 60 guests)! The house has 2 dishwashers, 2 ovens, 2 refrigerators and 2 washer & dryers. Plenty of room for the amount of people it sleeps to hang out and not be on top each other. We will definitely be back!

Best House on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Star of the West. House is huge and very spread out so everyone had their own space. Located on a great spot on the beach.

Great, as usual.

  • 5 of 5

Been in this property for maybe 12 years, same week in June. Flexible enough to accommodate all the nieces and nephews who stop in with their families for a few days. Folly veterans for 20 plus years. Some of us are getting older but still enjoy it. Management does a great job.

Fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

It's a great property & it's well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc.! We did have an issue with a mouse or rat eating some food. Hope they can catch him before we come back!!!
