Folly Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bed/3 bath, sleeps 6-8, pool and deep water private dock.

Fisherman's Folly is a privately owned, luxurious vacation rental located on the Folly River in Folly Beach, SC. Spend your vacation in style at the beach without paying 'on the beach' pricing or dealing with a rental company. Fisherman's Folly is in an ideal location with stunning views of the Folly River from any window. A short stroll over the Folly River bridge puts you in the heart of Folly Beach where you can take in the local flair, participate in one of several Folly Beach festivals, wine and dine at one of our many unique bars/restaurants or soak in the sun by the Folly Beach Pier on beautiful Folly Beach (just a brisk 10 minute walk from your front door!).

Fisherman's Folly is located in one of the few condo communities on Folly Beach with a private dock. If you need a break from the white sand of Folly Beach, this is a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the sun. You can fish, crab (trap included), shrimp or indulge in an afternoon cocktail as the sun sets over the Folly River. We have several picnic tables and an oyster table for outdoor dining. Dolphin sightings are guaranteed! Have a boat? The Folly Beach public landing is right across the river from the dock. Tie up your boat during the day for convenience! At Fisherman's Folly you can boat, ski, parasail, or paddleboard without ever leaving your back yard!

If you choose to leave the island, a 15 minute drive will take you to historic downtown Charleston where you can spend a lazy afternoon shopping in the market, exploring the city via horse drawn carriage, and/or dining at any of our award winning restaurants.

This VRBO property is owned and maintained by Folly Beach locals. Take it from us, this is one of the best properties you will find on the island! We look forward to helping you make this vacation the best you've ever had!

About Jacob Clegg

Ben and Jake purchased Fisherman's Folly in 2013 and with the help of their better halves, Kate and Brooke, transformed the worn out unit into the stunning vacation rental you see now. These long time friends and business partners are proud to call Folly Beach home and even prouder to share the Folly experience with you. When they aren't working to make Fisherman's Folly a vacationer's dream, Jake, Brooke, Ben & Kate enjoy fishing the Folly River, relaxing on Morris Island and supporting their favorite Folly Beach businesses.

Very nice layout, pleasantly decorated, great location with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The only issue with our stay at Fisherman's Folly was that it was too short! The condo is well appointed with comfortable beds, equipped kitchen, tasteful decor and comfy living room/dining room furniture. I am highly sensitive to scents and it smelled very nice, as well. It is well maintained and even houses several live plants. Ben is responsive and he sent us a welcome text, as well as gave us recommendations on restaurants. The only little hiccup that we experienced was that it was a challenge to get the volume turned up on the living room TV. We did, through some "trial and error," finally get it to work. (I am sure that if we would have called Ben, he would have made it easier for us.) Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your great relaxation spot! I plan to visit again! I highly recommend this rental!

Amazing condo with even better hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We came in during the hurricane and Ben was very attentive to our needs and safety. Whenever we needed anything he was at the condo within the hour. The views were spectacular and we will certainly be back! The condo is very spacious and everything is so organized. It was nice to have an assortment of appliances to use...they even had a rice cooker!

Loved staying at Fisherman's Folly!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Folly Beach and our first time using HomeAway, needless to say everything went perfectly!!! Fisherman's Folly is amazing, the owners absolutely thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable and at home. The condo itself is beautiful, the views are to die for, and the location couldn't be better. Our boys loved the dock on the river and the complimentary crab basket!! We can't wait to visit Folly Beach and Fisherman's Folly again....soon!!! :):):)

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The condo was spacious, very clean and modern, and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the beautiful view and the fishing pier on Folly River. The location was perfect -- we were close enough to the beach but not in the "heart" of town.

This was our first time to Folly Beach. Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable!

What a perfect spot to get around the area. We went to Charleston and toured the city one day, Savannha and Hilton Head another. Go right over the

bridge to Folly Beach and eat at Lost Dog and the pier. The beach was great and water warm. The boat tour at Bowen Island is a must . You go to an island

and see a Light House and we saw at least 10 Dolphins.But being able to sit on the deck for coffee and around the big table at night and play games and

fix many meals was a plus. Everyone had a spot and never felt crowded. Hope to bring my kids back next year.
