Comfortable beach house, tastefully decorated on the West end of the island with large deck overlooking the ocean. The short sandy beach path is right out the front door. The home has amazing ocean views and peaks of the river to the rear. You can view both sunrises and sunsets on Folly Beach because the Island runs East/West. 9 blocks from the vibrant , eclectic center of town is where you'll find locally owned cafes, restaurants, stores, bars and the pier.

The space
There is over 1000 square feet of living space on the 2nd floor of a 1970's beach house. The space includes a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, large living room with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and a large deck with dining table, chairs and chaise lounges overlooking the ocean, directly across the street from a short beach path.

Guests have a private entrance through the deck on the 2nd floor. The entire second floor is for the private use of guests. The living room is furnished with antiques, nice artwork and two very comfy couches overlooking the ocean. The dining room offers peaks of the river to the rear of the home. There are 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The beautifully furnished home is perfect for 2 to 4 people. There is a queen bed in the large master bedroom with attached half bath on the ocean side of the home. The second bedroom is furnished with two twin beds and overlooks the river side of the home. Parking for two cars is provided to guests, along with an outdoor shower and beach chairs.

There are no laundry facilities on the second floor, however there is a laundromat on Folly Beach. Plenty of towels and all household essentials are provided to guests. The house is nine blocks from Center Street where there are numerous vibrant, beachy stores, restaurants and bars

Ask me about arranging for golf cart rental or bike rental (some bikes on property). We are one block from the Sunset Cay Marina on the Folly River and one block from Folly Beach County Beach Park. For those looking for a quiet getaway and enjoy long walks on the beach, shell seeking or relaxing at the beach, this is the perfect location. The historic City of Charleston is a 20 minute car ride from the home. Lyft and Uber are readily available.

Guest access
Guests have a private entrance to the upstairs through the front entrance from the deck.

Owners live in downstairs apartment when in town.

Other things to note
Beautiful Folly Beach is an East/West Island, so it provides great sunrise over the ocean and sunset views at the Western tip of the Island. This beautiful end of the island offers a wide sandy beach with great shell/sharktooth hunting. Walk to the Pier and back, or to the west which will take you around the point of the island to the Folly River. Our home is perfect for beach lovers seeking a quiet, relaxing getaway. Folly Beach was one of the first towns in SC to create a no plastic/styrofoam ordinance on the beach to protect our coastal waters and marine life. Fishing, boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and surfing excursions are readily available in the area.
Prior to arrival, we will send you detailed information on the home and area. We will also kindly ask you your appx arrival time to assure you proper lighting if needed.

Location

Folly Beach, South Carolina, United States

The quiet West end of the island is close to the beautiful Folly Beach county park which is a natural setting and wonderful place for long walks. Sunset Cay Marina is located behind the property with peaks of the river from the rear facing windows. Center Street is the main street on Folly Beach and is 1 mile away with lots of restaurants, beach shops and music with a funky, fun vibe. Folly Beach offers an eclectic neighborhood market, Bert's, a convenience store, library, farmer's market and it's own police and fire department. The island is 8 miles long and on the far East side of the island is the home of the Morris Island Lighthouse which is a pretty place to spend an afternoon. This is a beautiful barrier island, approximately 10 miles from the City of Charleston. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing beach getaway, this is the perfect location for you. Ride into the historic, vibrant city of Charleston by Uber or Lyft, approximately 20 minutes or less by car. We love our friends from long distances and can assist you with any questions about the area.

We have lived in the Charleston area for 30 years and love exploring our own area, from cool new restaurants downtown to hidden away pop-up shops. We currently live on Folly Beach with beautiful ocean and river views. We love camping, kayaking, hiking, shelling, fishing, boating and much more. Love the outdoors. I like to entertain from warm cozy dinners in the kitchen to sitting by the fire for an oyster roast. When we're not on Folly Beach, you can find us at our Edisto River house, chilling by the river or up in the mountains at our cabin in Balsam, exploring the Smoky Mountains and Asheville area.
