Folly Beach Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 4-6 people

Across the street from the beach, less than a block away from the nearest restaurant/bar and only two blocks off Center Street in Folly, this newly refurnished beach bungalow offers exceptional value and convenience to the Folly beach vacationer.

This is one of two units (side-by-side) in a single floor, elevated beach property with a peek-a-boo view of the ocean. It is located on the second row of houses from the beach, ½ block away from the nearest restaurant, and 1 ½ short Folly blocks from Center Street. There is an entrance to the unit both on Ashley as well as Cooper, but please note one must be able to climb stairs for each entrance. There are two parking spaces for the unit on the Cooper side of the unit. There is a small porch at the top of each set of steps with seating for two on the beach side (Ashley Ave).

Underneath the house is a shaded, decked area with a table for dining as well as a sitting area around a fire pit (propane) solely for the use of your rental unit. There is also a propane grill for your use. Propane is provided for both the grill and the fire pit free of charge.

As far as the interior unit, it is approximately 850 sf with two bedrooms and one and a half baths. Both bedrooms contain a queen size bed, a 24' flat screen tv, and a radio/alarm clock. The living area contains a leather queen sleeper sofa with brand new memory foam matress, a 32' flat screen tv and a small stereo to listen to the radio or CD’s with the capability of playing music directly from your Ipod or similar device.

The kitchen flows from the living room and will contain all of the basics that you would expect: pots, pans, coffee maker, blender (a beach essential in my opinion!) microwave, toaster and toaster oven, a variety of glasses including wine, serving plates and plate settings for six and utensils for 12. The kitchen table seats up to six when pulled out.

Because of the size of the unit, there is not a automatic dishwasher, but in the closet at the back entrance of the unit there is a full-size washer and dryer.

All linens will be provided: two sets of sheets for each bed, comforters, blankets, two sets of towels for each guest (bath towel, hand towel, wash cloth), bath mats for each bath room and a beach towel for each guest. A cooler, beach chairs and a variety of beach toys are also provided with the unit. My goal is to provide the vacationer with everything necessary to get them onto the beach in the least amount of time, so I have tried to think of a few of the necessities that would be nice to have from the moment you enter the unit, so you can make a more leisurely trip to the store. The unit is supplied with the initial quantities of paper towels,toilet paper, coffee, tea, sugar, cream, salt, pepper, shampoo, conditioner, lotion hand and bath soap, dish washing soap, laundry detergent and a bottle of water for each guest. If there is something that is important to you that you do not see listed above, please let me know and I will do what I can to accommodate you. My goal is to make your visit to our island so enjoyable and convenient that you make Folly your regular beach getaway.

We loved staying at Vanessa's Folly Beach Hideaway! It had everything we needed for a 10 day party!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter Sophia 🏄􁀼􏟽and nephew Lucas 😎򓡳aid it was an awesome Beach Hideaway 🏝􇐠with plenty of beach toys! Bud 🐶𝠠our dog loved the breeze way hammock and ocean! My wife Anna loved watching the sunrise on Beautiful Folly Beach SC everyday with me and Bud. Eating at awesome restaurants, visiting museums and universities, Southern BBQ, local seafood places and Late Night Ghost Tours in Charleston. I loved the peace and quiet, movie on the beach, Dolphin watching and identifying the stars on the beautiful clear nights. My car loved the shaded parking in the car roasting heat. Vanessa is an awesome host! We wish her "Peace & Prosperity!" and plan to return! We hope and pray that you are OK after all of the hurricanes! 🌾󟠼󰾃

Perfect location. Perfect place to stay for my hubby and me. Vanessa was so great. We actually miss her already. Her treetop house is somewhere we would actually live in. We were sad to leave. We will definitely be back!

Perfect stay!

I cannot say enough positive things about the property, or about Vanessa! The home itself is very cozy and comfortable, and the outdoor space under the house was extremely relaxing, with hammocks, chairs and a fire pit. Vanessa has stocked the house with everything you will need for cooking, and also has everything you will need for your days on the beach - lots of boogie boards and beach toys. Also, the duplex is super close to the beach and all the restaurants and activities in Folly Beach. We are anxious to return already!

What a great hide-a-way so close to everything! We had a wonderful stay at this tree top get away. I love Charleston and all its beaches, but have a special fondness for Folly. I love the casual atmosphere and just being able to throw on my bathing suit and walk a very short distance to the beach. The duplex unit has everything you could need and more, including all the beach equipment you need. We also took our “tent canopy”, but really didn’t need to pack anything else because all was provided, including an umbrella. All the necessities are provided and more. The space under the unit is comfortable, with its hammocks, table and chairs, and fire pit. It is nice and breezy so you don’t have to deal with mosquitoes and other pests. We did not use the grill, but one was available. We used the kitchen for most meals during the week and everything we needed to prepare and cook was available; there are several grocery stores just a few miles from Folly and there is Bert’s, a small market, right on Folly. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from on Folly and in the Charleston area. We ate lunch at Folly a couple times, but enjoyed restaurants on James Island just a few miles down the road for two birthday dinners. If you like Thai/ Sushi, Thai Elephant was excellent as was the Italian fare at Mondo’s. The list is wide open if you want to venture out further to the nearby surrounding areas.

The unit is very nicely decorated and the space is utilized very smartly. Vanessa loves to garden as is evident with her nicely landscaped yard and plants throughout the house. My daughter loves gardening and plants and Vanessa shared some tips and some succulent samples to take home. My two teenagers had birthdays during our week long stay, and she hooked us up with bikes for the day as a gift. They loved it their cycling excursions! Vanessa was always a phone call away and readily available, but was never invasive. I highly recommend this adorable, clean and convenient vacation spot to anyone looking to get away! Vanessa truly was a wonderful host and offers so much more than you would expect for a vacation rental “hostess”. We will definitely be returning!

Location! Location! Location!

This was our first trip to Folly Beach and Stephanie's rental couldn't have been any more perfect. The unit was very clean and meet all our vacation needs. We were made to feel right at home and given many well-advised suggestions on where to eat and visit. I have saved the best for last …. the location even though the home was a street behind ocean front homes … we were steps away from the beach.

All around this was a great decision and recommend it to everyone.

Special anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to the "Treetop Hideaway" as it is our very own go-to place when we want to get away, relax, unwind, and spend time with those we love. We chose to celebrate our 23rd anniversary at Folly and knew exactly where we wanted to spend the weekend. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we soaked up the last of the summer-like sun. However, the best part of our Folly weekend was driving in and seeing our names and"happy anniversary" on the Folly Boat! We were thrilled to have "made the Boat" and were so very touched that Vanessa chose to made our anniversary so special. You will not find another home or a caring host as you will find at "Treetop Hideaway." Thank you for giving our family so many wonderful memories! You go above and beyond to make your guests feel comfortable, at ease, and home in Folly.
