About Teresa L. Mincey

My husband and I built this home in 1991 after moving to the Low Country from Columbia, S. C. After many years of looking for the right property, we found paradise. Our desire was to raise our 2 daughters in a safe place while enjoying the beach and all of the fun things Folly has to do. Living on the water and being outdoors allowed our girls to grow up learning how to crab, fish, shrimp and an all around appreciation of the water and all of the beauty this home has to offer. They are pretty much grown and out of the house. Now, I am in that ''sizing down mode' and it's time to let others enjoy this home located in such a beautiful place.

Why Teresa L. Mincey chose Folly Beach

This is not your typical vacation rental. While you will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay, I have maintained the 'feel at home' ambiance in this warm and inviting house. You will find many details tended to to make your stay enjoyable.

What makes this house unique

You can swing in the hammock or sunbath on the private dock while enjoying all of he river activities, views and outrageous sunsets. You'll have to decide...beach today or hanging on the river. Sometimes, I find that a very tough decision and feel so fortunate to have it!

A wonderful experience at Sunset House!

  • 5 of 5

My expectations were high before our arrival and we weren't disappointed. Theresa is a gracious, responsive host and the property was as described. The location is private, but 5 minutes from everything on the island. 25 minute easy travel into Charleston, ( beautiful, historic & entertaining city). There is much to see within a half hour from the property. We entertained ourselves on our dock by fishing, kayaking, sunbathing, crabbing. Coffee on the dock at sunrise was a great way to start the day. Peaceful. We got our thoughts together & made plans for the day. Many dolphin sightings.

We were a party of eight adults plus our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. Everyone felt comfortable & at home in the house. Plenty of room for my group. Decorated in what I would describe as a classic, eclectic island décor. Classy but comfortable. Much like our own home. We felt at home, yet spoiled at the same time. Everyone one of our party was impressed and enjoyed their stay thoroughly. I passed my only complaint, ( about the grille) on to Theresa & she assured me it would be taken care of. We traditionally stay on Hilton Head Island, but I would not hesitate to make this your vacation destination. I would go back. Beautiful!!!

Amazingly Beautiful "Sunset House"

  • 4 of 5

This was our very first family vacation. My sister was married at Folly Beach so this was only our second time visiting Folly Beach. The home was beautiful and very spacious. The home was fully equipped with everything needed for a kitchen. The location and the layout of the home was great. There were 11 of us total. The majority of our time was spent in the Sun Room, enjoying the beautiful view of the entire bay. Not to mention being able to watch the kids fish and crab from the home's very own personal dock. The dinning room table was used every night. We enjoyed being able to serve and eat dinners at one dinner table together as a family. Every evening and morning we saw dolphins swimming in the bay. The sunrises and sunsets were amazingly beautiful. I would definitely recommend this place to families with kids. However, I would not recommend this home for a handicapped person. My husband suffered a stroke in 2013. He has learned to climb stairs, however, this was quite a challenge for him, and me! All of the showers are upstairs, so we had to venture up more stairs for him to bathe. Other than that, the home was absolutely beautiful! We were able to bring my husband's therapy dog, Gracie, a beautiful Rottie, and my father was able to bring his breeding dog, Ranger, a Lab into this home. Fur babies are a huge part of our family. They are our family and I am so thankful that we were allowed to bring them with us. Not many homes allow pets and I am so very thankful to Teresa for allowing us to bring them with us. The men and boys of the family went on a deep sea fishing trip with "Water Music." Greg was absolutely amazing. He even docked at the home's personal dock and cleaned the fish that were caught for the day. The ladies took a sailboat sunset cruise with "Water Music." Again, Greg was wonderful! I would highly recommend Water Music to everyone at Folly Beach. Thank you Teresa for opening up your home for our family. We made lots of memories that we will cherish forever! The LARGE Family!!

Overall incredibly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this property and we were extremely pleased! The owner was very accommodating to our every need and was there to show us around the house when we are arrived. I think what we enjoyed most was relaxing on the dock ... The fishing was great. We will definitely return next year

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and very well maintained! It really feels like a home, not just a house. Teresa is very accommodating and responsive to questions and needs. We had a little issue with the wi-fi and she came out on the 4th of July to fix it! Great vacation! Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Family Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

Returned this week from a week's stay at Sunset House. Everyone agreed it was one of the BEST vacations we'd had in a while - everything from lots of outdoor activities to just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

We rented the house primarily because it has a dock but the location and other amenities were superb. We had our 24ft. Whaler, as well as two kayaks and a SUP and got a lot of use out of all. We didn't do a lot of fishing or crabbing, but there were plenty of opportunities for both. The walkway out to the dock is relatively short comparted to other houses on the river and we made lots of trips back and forth. The house is set back from the street and down a little sandy drive so you feel as if you're on your own private property where you can relax on one of several patios, decks, and sitting areas without seeing neighbors. Lots of little touches that make you comfortable, like all the pillows and cushions in the outdoor seating areas, umbrellas to keep the sun off, even a fan in one seating area to keep you cool. We loved how close we were to downtown Folly too. You could walk there or to the beach if you wanted to but we rented a golf cart for a few days and it was really neat hopping in the cart and driving downtown to dinner or breakfast, or just sightseeing around the island. We thought we'd be going into Charleston some for dinner and shopping (only 20 mins. or so away), but there was so much to do on Folly and the surrounding areas we never did.

The house itself is very comfortable and beautifully decorated and felt more like a home than a rental. We especially liked the sun porch which was windows all around and had fabulous views of the river and the sunsets. Most of the rooms in the house, in fact, had great views of the water, including all the bedrooms. The house was equipped with nearly everything you'd need to feel at home - plenty of towels in the bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen, and extra kayaks, beach chairs and a beach cart you can use. It was great having a washer and dryer too so we didn't have to bring a big load of dirty clothes home. Early one evening a storm came through and knocked the power out for a couple of hours. The house had plenty of candles that we lit as it began to get dark. We almost hated to see the power come back on! Teresa checked with us as well to be sure everyone was okay. She was a great host.

Would definitely recommend this house for anyone. We'll be back!

A great place for a peaceful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took a last minute vacation with our dog and stayed at Teresa's home. We were really impressed with our stay. She was as able to meet us upon arriving and give us the grand tour. The house was in great condition and very clean. It is located in a quiet area overlooking the sound w/ a short 5 minute walk to the beach. She also gave us recommendations on place to go and eat. A must try is the Lost Dog Cafe, it was great! The entire area was dog friendly and we were able to take him everywhere. There were also bike rentals close by.

Teresa's house was very relaxing, has plenty of place to lounge and has terrific views of the sound and sunsets! The hammock was also a nice addition to the back yard. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to vacation in Folly Beach. If we vacation here again, Sunset Point is where we will stay! Thanks again Teresa, we had a great time!
