About the property

3 Br/3 Ba, Dual Masters, Sleeps 10, Easy Beach Access, Crabbing Dock


Recent updates for 2016 include: a kayak gate off the tidal creek dock, new central AC/heat, new furniture in the Crow's Nest.

Recently remodeled, private 3 bedroom, 3 bath home, sleeps up to 10. Hidden away amongst the trees on a marsh-front lot with crabbing/kayaking dock, the Escape boasts ocean views from the upper screen porch and easy beach access across the street. It's less than a mile from outstanding surfing at the Washout, and short drive to downtown Charleston.

Dual master suites, one with king bed, sitting area, it's own TV and surround-sound system, and one with a queen bed and en suite bathroom. The 3rd BR has 4 bunk beds and is adjacent to a large bathroom w/ shower and tub: perfect for families or a girls/guys weekend away. There's also a super-comfy full/queen air sofa-bed in the living room to sleep an additional 1-2 guests. The house has an open floor with a large dining table that easily seats 8-10, and a separate kitchen eating area. Front and back decks with outdoor dining on both and a Weber gas grill on the front deck. A screen porch above the rear master BR has incredible 360 views of the ocean, marsh, Morris Island lighthouse, Long Island River and Lighthouse Creek, Charleston Harbor and the most amazing sunsets you've ever seen. Large open back yard with private dock for crabbing, launching your kayak, or just watching the sunset and marsh wildlife.

Numerous amenities, including cable TV with HD, three flat screen HD TVs, 2 Blu-ray players, surround sound, outdoor speakers, iPod/iPhone dock, Netflix/Pandora/Hulu/Slacker, Wii, high-speed internet. New furniture, new carpet; the entire house has been recently re-painted and re-decorated. Fully equipped, complete remodeled kitchen (2014) with Bosch dishwasher and microwave, basic spices, and all the cookware you need for a simple breakfast or an all-out low-country boil.

Public beach access is across the street, and the location at Folly's NE end means sparsely populated, lush beaches, and outstanding surfing and surfcasting. You're a short walk or bike ride from the NE end of the island and up-close views of the famous Morris Island lighthouse. A short bike ride in the other direction puts you at the restaurants, shops, and bars along Center Street, the Folly Pier, or the iconic 24/7 Bert's Market for some organic vegetables, a bottle of wine, or a growler of one of your favorite microbrews. Downtown Charleston is a short 20 minute drive in the car, making Folly Beach Escape the perfect location for visitors looking to experience a little of bit of everything Charleston and the South Carolina coast have to offer.

About Jeff and Amy Anne Lassig

We're a family of five who bought Folly Beach Escape in 2010 as a beach get-away and landing spot for visits to Charleston. Amy Anne is a native South Carolinian who's lived in both Charleston and the Columbia area, and we were were married in Charleston in 2005. We head to Charleston and the barrier islands several times a year, especially in the fall and spring, to visit family and friends, eat some good Charleston food, and bask in the glory of the SC coast.

Jeff and Amy Anne Lassig purchased this house in 2010

Why Jeff and Amy Anne Lassig chose Charleston Area

When we were looking for a house, we wanted to have our cake and eat it too: the beauty of the marsh and tidal creeks, and easy access to the ocean and beach; a private, secluded location, but also an easy drive to downtown Charleston; and a place where we could stay in and cook up some blue crabs or redfish and have a quiet, relaxing dinner out on the deck one night, and head into town for some drinks and nightlife the next. This house and Folly Beach offered all that and more, and we couldn't pass it up.

What makes this house unique

Folly Beach Escape offers the kind of experience that can only be had at the tidal creek/marsh side of the northeast end of the island: marsh/river/harbor views one side, and the ocean on the other. Do not miss the sunsets from the back deck, screened porch, or dock - they are like nothing else. Put the crab traps in (they're hanging up in the laundry room) with some bait from Crosby's and get yourself some fresh blue crabs for crab cakes. Read a book on the deck and listen to the waves. Or put some John Coltrane on the outdoor speakers and open up a bottle of wine. Be sure to turn left out of the driveway and head to the end of the road. The park at the end of the island is beautiful and very secluded, and the best place to photograph the lighthouse. Folly Beach, unlike some of the other barrier islands, is a place, like the extended motto of it's 24/7/364 market (Bert's), that's really meant for everyone: young, old, hipsters, hippies, surfers, conservatives, liberals, fat, thin, black, white - come as you are - there's something for everyone and everyone is welcome.

Charming beach cottage with amazing marsh view

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property the week of October 1, 2016. This is just as sweet a place in person as it is in the pictures! The "perfect beach house" in every way. Plenty of room for family of 6 (room for 2 more in the bunk room). Kitchen very well stocked. Furniture and bedding was comfortable. Had to leave early because of hurricane Matthew mandatory evacuation. We were so heartbroken to cut the stay short - my niece was supposed to get married in Charleston on the 7th. The wedding was cancelled. :( The owners were quick to refund all monies for the nights not used. I really hope their sweet home made it through okay. We want to go back next year to "finish" our vacation! :)

Our week at the Folly Beach Escape was great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Folly Beach Escape for a week and we had a great time. There are many houses on Folly Beach, side by side, but this one feels secluded. The trees around the house block block out the view of other houses, but not the amazing view of the marsh. The sunsets were super, especially from the crow's nest. The crows nest is the perfect place to drift off into the evening watching the sun fade away.

The beach is only foot steps away, just across the street is the access walkway. The house was in good shape and stocked with everything you will need for your stay, utensils in the kitchen, plenty of towels, soap, beach umbrellas, etc... The layout of the house is perfect for a beach getaway, the master sets on the back deck and has windows/sliding glass doors along the entire length of the bedroom.

Our time there was super, and we would rent this place again if we had the chance!

We have been to Charleston area islands a few times and if you are looking for the "chill beach", this is the one for you.

Cute & Clean

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the house from June 25th - July 2nd, 2016 and it was perfect for our large family. 4 older adults, 5 21 year-olds and 1 child. Plenty of space for all of us indoors and more than enough outdoor space. Invited some local friends over for dinner one night and wound up with 2 extra adults and 3 more kids for a few hours and it was a blast - never crowded! The appliances are newer, not perfect but, did what we needed them to do for a large group that ate in for all meals except about 3 times. Convenient walk to the beach, even loaded down with toys, umbrellas, tents and coolers, it was easy. The house is very close to other houses but landscaped in a way that made it feel very secluded. Nice and safe neighborhood. The bad: the dishwasher wheels kept popping off, the chairs around the dining table have almost seen their last days, the broom and vacuum cleaner were both broken and we didn't have a pump for the air mattress in the sofa bed but, we duct taped the broom back together and made a dust pan out of cardboard and we made it through just fine. Lucky for us, the guy sleeping on the sleeper sofa was 21 years old and, well, you know... he's 21 and I don't think he noticed it. The little things didn't bother us much because we were all together and having such a great time in this nearly perfect house! We did reach out to the owners and asked them for sofa bed sheets and air pump and they sent sheets the next day so, they were responsive and easy to work with. Regarding the area, we loved the beach feel of area. Super cute "downtown" with restaurants, shops and bars. Snapper Jacks has the best rooftop bar with the nicest bartenders! Bert's market is a great place to stop if you're in a pinch or don't need too many items. Thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy your home for a week - we'd probably stay again if some very minor improvements were made.

Perfect for families!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better spot to enjoy the beach for a week. The beach access was literally 60 seconds away and if anyone in our group needed/wanted to go back to the house, it was safe (kids under 13) for them to walk back alone. The beach itself was never crowded. The house was the perfect size for a family of 6 with two older teenagers. Beach accessories were available as well. We rented kayaks for the week but when we come back (yes, we loved the house/spot so much were already planning a return trip) we will only rent them one day. The access to the marsh is a little tough and you can only access it during high tide. However, we saw 4 dolphins on our outing on the kayaks! We also saw them in the ocean while swimming!! We rented bikes as well but if you're like me, I'd rather die than exercise so next time we'll rent a golf cart for the week. Jeff and Amy were reachable for any questions we had and very accommodating. The AC had a slight hiccup (life happens) and they were fast in getting it taken care of. Thanks again for letting us stay in your awesome beach house!! We honestly look forward to staying there again.
