'The River Dolphin' - 114 Waters Edge
114 2nd St W
Folly Beach SC 29439
The River Dolphin is located in the quaint community of Waters Edge where everything is easy going! This particular three-story townhouse is located on the banks of the gorgeous Folly River which separates Folly Beach from the mainland. The river feeds the surrounding marshland and The River Dolphin is perfectly situated for you to view from your living room or one of two river-view porches. The first level of The River Dolphin is dedicated to a three-car garage, linear garage with interior access to the home. The second level houses an open kitchen that flows into the dining area and living room. Whispering pastel colors regularly associated with coastal life blossom throughout while polished wooden floors and modern appliances and countertops provide a great balance to the home. Images of the coastal paradise in which you are immersing yourself decorate the walls and tables. The living room is separated from the screened-in porch only by windows and a sliding glass door. The porch itself is furnished with a four-person table with standing room provided on the remaining half. There is also a bedroom and full bath located on this level.
The top floor houses the two remaining bedrooms. Each has its own full bath. The master bedroom, however, has a stand-alone shower, a large walk-in closet, a his/her sink and a spacious Jacuzzi tub for ultimate relaxation. It also has access to a private, open air balcony with plenty of room to catch some afternoon sun while enjoying Folly River view and the salty breeze. The Waters Edge community is tucked away from the hustle and traffic of Folly Beach but is close enough for a bike ride or extended walk to all of the dining and shopping, if you were so inclined. It is equally convenient to the actual sand and surf of Folly Beach, or you can simply load up the car and cruise a few blocks to the beach spot of your choice.

The condo was really very, very nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the decor perfect! The location was perfect for getting to Folly Beach and the local restaurants - easy walking distance. The balcony overlooking the marsh was very relaxing for enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day! I would definitely reserve again.
Immaculate home, comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen in the best river location on Folly. Enjoy the river views with daily dolphin appearances, walk downtown to all the great restaurants and a short walk to the beach. Best of all that Folly has to offer!

My family's meaning of escape - renting The River Dolphin at Folly Beach!!
Our group of 4 adults and 4 teenagers had the best late summer vacation we could have ever asked for. Check in and out at the Dunes property office on Center Street was super quick and easy then on to see the rental. I am always a bit nervous when I first turn the key on a rental we have never stayed in before but all those worries disappeared when we walked into The River Dolphin, it was the perfect escape. Great open floor plan, perfect beach décor and plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals including an awesome shrimp boil with local shrimp!! The 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms were roomy and very clean. There is a full size washer and dryer which really helps with all the beach towels we needed when we used the great outdoor pool only steps away from this unit. The beach is a 5 minute walk or you can rent a golf cart right on the island which we did and then you can zip to the beach or all over Folly island to explore. We parked our cars when we arrived and didn't back in them until we left a week later, everything is that close. We ate at several of the islands restaurants and had all good experiences. I can't say enough about The River Dolphin, Folly Beach and Dunes Properties, our ESCAPE to the Edge of America was perfect!
It was cool and rainy the week we stayed at The River Dolphin but the accommodations made up for that. The condo was clean and there was plenty of room for our family of 8. A closet in one of the bedrooms was large enough to place a pack and play for my granddaughter to sleep. The bedroom near the kitchen was perfect for my in laws. The garage could hold 2 cars and was convenient on rainy days. The condo was walking distance to the beach and the main strip. We had a great breakfast one morning at The Lost Dog Cafe. We would love to stay here again if the opportunity arises.
We have stayed at many places on Folly Beach, and in several different units at Water's Edge. This townhome, 114 Water's Edge is a cozy, private, well-decorated gem that offers a great view of the Folly River, a very short walk to downtown Folly, a short walk to the beach and...a pool! All of this at very reasonable price. We love this townhome and plan to come back. For those of you who don't know Folly, it's famous for its beautiful beaches, laid-back life style and easy access (15 minutes) to the world-class shopping and dining that Charleston has to offer. See you in Folly!

This property was perfect for our family vacation. You are a short walk or golf cart ride to many local restaurants and shops. The beach is a straight shot down the road. The kitchen is well stocked and we enjoyed eating our meals on the screened in porch. Two cars and a golf cart easily fit into the garage. We look forward to returning in the future.
