Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 sleeper sofas in Great Room, add'l private room

Marsh Gayz is a private river front home on the Folly River with a deep water dock tucked away on Tabby Island, a secluded waterfront neighborhood of Folly Beach, South Carolina. Surrounded by age old live oaks, saltmarsh meadows and the wide waters of the Folly River, this beautiful home features spectacular private views of the Low Country at its finest. Although sequestered away from the main beach drag, it’s still only a short stroll to the beach and the famed surfer’s paradise known as the “Washout.” The quaint commercial district of Center Street and Folly Landing, with its many restaurants, shops, night clubs and parks, is also just a short bicycle, drive or boat ride away. You can easily launch your boat at the landing and dock in your own backyard during your stay 24/7. Historic downtown Charleston, SC is a scenic 15-20 minute hop over the island connector that characterize this part of the East Coast.

Unlike many coastal homes, only four steps up takes you to the haven within. This single story dwelling sleeps (10) people with three bedrooms and 3 full baths (one with a deep Jacuzzi tub) and two sleeper sofas in the great room. The roomy master suite has a sweeping view of the river via glass sliders that open onto the wide back deck. A spacious great room with beautiful Morris Island brick gas fireplace, gaming table and separate walk-in bar embraces even more stunning views of the river. The large well-equipped kitchen comes complete with an island, dishwasher, microwave, multiple tools for the culinary inclined and a large dining table for seating 8 or more. A small study/shell room with a full size sofa can be found off the main entryway, and there is also full laundry facility and a garage fully stocked with all the beach or fishing gear you need. This home contains all the amenities including wireless high speed Internet, Cable TV, 52” flat screen TV, DVD player, sound dock for I Pods, ceiling fans, and central heating and air conditioning (new system 2016).

Although the house is a sanctuary in itself, it’s really all about the great outdoors. A spacious sundeck spans the entire back of the house and leads you across the lawn to a short railed dock ending at the river. The dock facility has both floating and stationary platforms, and is complete with a shaded area and bench seats, fish cleaning station with sink, water and power. There is also a paved patio area in the back yard that is perfect for oyster roasts, shrimp or crab boils and other seafood affairs with a stainless table, sink with running water and portable cooker and pots, shell barrels and a customized fire pit made special for Marsh Gayz for adding a little late night ambiance or roasting marshmallows.

Marsh Gayz is an ideal getaway for families or friends who have an interest in all of the watersports delights that the river world offers, while fish, crabs, clams and oysters can be caught or found right out the back door! With amazing sunsets to the west, the statuesque Morris Island Lighthouse to the east and miles of river and marsh in between, one could not want more for a perfect summertime setting. It’s also an excellent venue for small quiet gatherings whether for family vacations, reunions, or gathering with friends. Not available for renters under 25 years of age. Its only set up to accommodate the maximum number of the reservation

If you're looking for a private river front home with a deep water dock on Folly Beach, we invite you to consider Marsh Gayz – a by-owner private vacation rental on the South Carolina coast. Relax your cares away or take a running splash off the dock, and enjoy the peaceful serenity and nature of Marsh Gayz where the loudest thing you'll hear is the soothing sound of the river, and the occasional blow of hello from our regular porpoise friends.

About Marsha Pardee, Owner - Natalie Staropoli, Property Manager

Marsha Pardee, M.Sc. is a marine ecologist who works as an independent consultant specializing in environmental management, eco-tourism and many other conservation related projects and programs. Although raised on Folly, she lives in the Turks and Caicos Islands and works throughout the Caribbean region, but enjoys coming back 'home' for the holidays and especially for shrimp season in the Fall.

Marsha Pardee, Owner - Natalie Staropoli, Property Manager purchased this house in 1970

Why Marsha Pardee, Owner - Natalie Staropoli, Property Manager chose Charleston Area

I was raised on Folly Beach, moving into this house as a young child. I have a love for all things in the water so being raised on the water only grew my passion for my profession.

What makes this house unique

Located on the East end of Folly, you can see historical Morris Island Lighthouse from the dock in the distance but it is a short ride to go see it and park then walk 1/4 mile to the beach. (Great family photo op). While you can enjoy kayaking on the water from the comforts of the house in one of the 3 kayaks provided, it's also just a short stroll to the beach crossing the street at East Ashley where you turned in to get to the house. The beach access is right there. You may also choose to bicycle to Center Street, on one of the bicycles provided. Folly has a great fishing pier Edwin S. Taylor managed by the County Park System. There is dining and a ship store too. This property is managed by Property Manager extraordinaire, Natalie Staropoli. We offer so much more than most rentals on Folly, the reviews speak for themselves as many guest find it there or home away from home regardless how short or long their stay. The views are extremely private whether you were sitting in the great room or sitting on the deck at our roundtable with cushions provided for maximum comfort. The lower level Patio is more like an outdoor kitchen with a sink and a grill, a gas cooker with several stock pots provided, a fire pit and dining tables for al fresco dining. It's truly a hidden treasure on Folly Beach. It's Reasonable to say you will most likely catch blue crabs and or stone crabs off the dock in one of the crab pots provided as well as catch fresh fish of all sorts using one of the fishing rods provided, bringing your own fishing gear is recommended. Beach chairs. beach towels and all gear to get to the beach is easily accessible in the garage.

You Won't Be Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of a nicer home to spend a vacation week at! Marsh Gayz delivered and more. The home is clean, comfortable, well equipped and suitable for a perfect vacation at Folly Beach. The views from the interior back of the house and the backyard will calm and soothe you - the inlet water views and sunsets are sublime. It was so easy to make this house our home base for the week. A family wedding brought us to the area from Connecticut. The house afforded us every comfort. Being close to the ocean and Charleston was another plus. Great thanks and appreciation to the owner, Marsha Pardee, and the property manager, Natalie. Without their attention to detail, upkeep of the home, our stay would not have been as satisfying. They obviously care a great deal about renters having a favorable and memorable stay. Would I come back? Most definitely. Thank you.

Beautiful property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Folly and staying at Marsh Gayz! The house was clean and very comfortable. Natalie was awesome and ensured we had everything we needed. The walk to the beach was easy to access and only took a few minutes. The dock was our favorite part and we saw dolphin every day. Definitely would recommended Marsh Gayz!

Beautiful Property - private dock, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at Marsh Gayz. It is very well stocked with linens, kitchen needs, all you need for a relaxing vacation. The outdoor kitchen and crab traps made for a fun week of catching (some) crabs and having a feast at the huge picnic table.

Natalie makes sure the house and grounds are guest ready when you arrive and she is available for suggestions, questions and answers about Folly, Charleston, restaurants, beaches - very helpful. We have lived on Folly and rented different cottages each year when we come to visit - Marsh Gayz is our favorite for privacy, sunsets and overall relaxation. We will be back again next spring.

As you can see, each year we make great improvements to the property so the experience meets and exceeds all expectations. Thank you again for choosing us. We hope to see you again in 2018. Have a wonderful Summer in Connecticut.

Best of Both Worlds!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved Marsh Gayz! From the moment of booking, Natalie was quick to answer any questions we had. She even showed up with cupcakes for our children on arrival! The house is situated perfectly for a family, off on a dead end sidestreet, with no through traffic. The backyard overlooked the tidal waters where we crabbed, fished and watched several dolphins. When the kids wanted to go to the beach, we packed our things and strolled down through the beach access. My son was thrilled with the beach as he found numerous shark teeth. I can't say enough about the property itself. It has everything you need for a vacation home...and even things you didn't think of! Thank you for letting us stay at this lovely home. We will definitely be back! The Clark Family

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you guys. Loved your ambitious kids. So glad your son found a small treasure of sharks teeth and so pleased you found our home more than adequately equipped for your Spring Break enjoyment. We would love to have you all back.

Comfortable house, beautiful view, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second February at Marsh Gayz, and we look forward to another one next year! The house has all the comforts of home PLUS an incredible view of the marsh, kayaks, fishing gear, a wonderful deck and outside patio for grilling, roasting oysters, and enjoying the fire pit or unexpectedly warm February days. The property manager is very helpful and responds quickly to any requests or questions. The beach is just a short walk away from this private, well-kept property. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you return and make our home, your home away from home. We hope you liked the latest updates with the exterior mediterranean paint and a fresh new coral front door along with the new occasional chairs in the great room. We will continue to update the property by moving indoors next. It will be great to have you back in 2018 to see some of those changes. Say hello to my furry friend Layla. Have a great Spring and a blessed Easter.
