About the property

Studio, 1 full bathroom, kitchenette, sleep max of 2 people

This little studio is a great option for a 1 or 2 person party wanting to visit Folly Beach, but wanting a little more solitude than a hotel provides. It can also be an add-on to our 3 bedroom unit (Homeaway #292172) to add a 4th bedroom, as well as a 2nd bathroom.

Located 1 block from the beach, and one block from Center Street - the heart of downtown Folly - the unit features a queen bed, a HD flatscreen TV with Blu-ray player and unlimited streaming movies via Netflix, a convenience fridge, microwave & coffeemaker, access to an outdoor communal grill, as well as an on-site washer and dryer.

All linens are provided.

Exactly as advertised

  • 3 of 5

My sister and I spent a long weekend ,while the location perfect and the room was clean we had just a few issues ,nothing that we could not handle but should be addressed. The bed was very noisy we think that previous tenant had broken it . Oh well to be young also needed to replace batteries in the remote control for t.v. ( no biggy)The day we arrived the air conditioning unit for one of the other rental units was being repaired, we moved our vehicle in order for them to unload and work from their truck,also they needed to run an electric cord from inside our room . We were fine with that except for having to postpone our dinner plans with family ( we didn't want to leave the door open with our belongings ). I guess it was Murphys law and the fact that we are for the most pretty chill about things. We would be happy to stay here again because what are the chances of this happening again !! Maybe add an outside outlet?

A great visit to Folly Beach made wonderful by warm hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in very nice accommodations only 1 and a half blocks from the ocean. Our room had everything we needed, and was also conveniently located just around the corner from a truly unique store, Bert's Market, which has pretty much EVERYTHING (including free delicious organic coffee 24hrs a day)! I mainly want to express my sincere appreciation for the gracious hospitality provided by Omar and Julia. Omar went out of his way to be kind and thoughtful making sure that we were taken care of and completely satisfied.

Enjoyed our stay

We really enjoyed the property and overall area. The people at Berts are super friendly which goes along with the South Carolina charm. We will definitely return.

Just what I was looking for.

  • 5 of 5

The room was small, as advertised, but just big enough for the wife and I to sleep and shower. We spent the entire 7 days there on the beach from sun up to sun down. This room is directly behind Bert's Grocery Store, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Free coffee all day, and great breakfast sandwiches. If they don't have it at Bert's, you probably don't need it. Anyhow, there is a beautiful view of an 8 foot stockade fence from the "front" porch, but you are going to have to walk down the street to see the beach. We walked everywhere and didn't have to pay $15-20 a day for parking. You can be sure the scalpers will be charging more during Memorial weekend. If you are looking for more space, check the other units upstairs. Good luck in Winston-Salem Lisa and Kevin, and congratulations Omar and Julia on the birth of baby Zion!!!

I stayed in the Unit C rental the week of 5/1/2016! It was PERFECT for me! To not get to wordy I will simply right the PROS and CONS


Can here footsteps and people talking in above apartment. (Nothing turning up the TV or Stereo volume couldn't solve).



Unit C is located in the same building as Folly Beach's only grocery store (Burts). Great little store with EVERYTHING you need, from beer on tap growlers to sushi to free coffee : )

Liquor store is also located in the same building!

2 short blocks to the beach

3 blocks from the pier

2 blocks from the main strip with all the restaurants and shops. I highly recommend Taco Boy and Crab Shack. For nightlife fun Snapper Jack's.

Chico Feo - outside bar and restaurant across the street,,, best fish tacos I have ever had!!! The laid back atmosphere is GREAT and the servers are beyond nice.


Is exactly as shown on WEBSITE, bed is comfortable, full size fridge, coffee pot, bathroom is big enough. Again, it is PERFECT for someone like me that spends nearly zero time in my room while on vacation! However, on one rainy day I spent quite a bit of time there, just relaxing and spending time on porch listening to the rain hit off the tin roof on the porch.

There is a grill for your use, which I did after purchasing steaks from Burt's : )

Located 1 block from the beach, and 1 block from the heart of downtown Folly - where all of the shops and restaurants are located. A 30 second walk from Bert's Market, our 24/7/365 gourmet market, and a Folly Beach landmark. A 30 minute drive to Charleston International Airport, and 10 minutes from downtown Charleston.
