This is a great house to host your wedding ($1100 event fee applies) This 8 bedroom oceanfront home offers a unique layout that can accommodate you and 23 of your family and friends in comfortable surroundings. 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. Home has a total of 9 flat-screen TV's with 2 in the living area and 7 in the bedrooms.

There is outside seating on both levels. On the downstairs deck you find rocking chairs and a swing to relax in, read a book or watch the sunrise. The upper deck also offers plenty of space for lounging and working on your tan. This traditional Folly home has plenty of place for parking, outside showers and direct beach access. 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.

Fantastic property

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!!!

Perfect for our needs and occasion

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a wedding in Charleston and gathering of many of our family (reunion). The house was perfect for our very extended family. It was a great place to stay and a great home base for members of our family to meet and enjoy each other during the weekend. Everybody stated how much they enjoyed it. There are many bedrooms but the kitchen and dining area and the other family room area were also wonderful for people to hand out. I would definitely recommend this house and come back for a similar occasion.

Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Really loved the house. Lots of bedrooms, with three upstairs where we could put young children to bed early undisturbed. Especially liked the very open kitchen and living room, and the big tv's that were great for sports. The extra refrigerator, oven, and dishwashers were also a big plus. The house is steps from the beach, and has a great ocean view with lots of rocking chairs on the back porch. An easy walk from Center Street restaurants, bars, and shops. Check in was very easy, the house was clean and well appointed, and as described.

Star of the West

Great house! Plenty of room to spread out. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The double porches are great for any time of day to enjoy the wonderful view. Easy walk to Folly and the pier. We had a blast!
