The Space

This listing is for a private room rental in an oceanfront home near the washout on Folly Beach. I am renting out a downstairs room with Queen size bed, table, fan/heater. You will have your own full bathroom which is upstairs. This property is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath duplex style house with large open great room upstairs, full kitchen, oceanfront deck, and beach access in front yard. Located on the 'Washout,' which is known as one of the best surfing spots in the Southeast. Lots of good surfing this time of year, and always lots of activity on the beach. You are welcome to relax and enjoy the house during the day, or head off to explore all that Folly Beach and Charleston has to offer.

You have full access to kitchen, amenities and are welcome to cook as long as you clean up. House will be shared by two friendly and respectful guys. The house is old, sandy, and has a few issues. We are nonsmokers, and will do what we can to accommodate you during your stay. We have deep cleaned and updated since the first review over a year ago. Clean sheets/pillows, towels and washcloth provided. 2 people maximum. No children. No pets. Check in is at 2pm. Check out is 11am.

Rental includes use of surfboards (9' longboard, 7' funboard), ocean kayak, and a bike. (You can rent another on if you need) I work with a boat and kayak , and can offer guests a discount on a guided kayak tour or rental.

Stay in a home that has beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, friendly beach vibes, and convenient location to Folly Beach activities. If this sounds like a great vacation opportunity, please email me with a little bit about yourself. Thanks.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We came into SC a day early and needed a last minute place to stay. We were SO grateful that Andy accepted us signing up hours before our arrival. His communication was great and he and mike were extremely friendly and welcoming hosts. The location could not be better for the beach and access just down the road to folly beach. The room was fine but the house is definitely on the well-worn side, as it is older and has been a well-lived in ... definitely has the sand in from the beach fee, so great for surfers and beach loversl. If you want a spot on the beach and are a laid back person, this is excellent. If you're looking for a hotel-environment type of stay and are not super chill, this probably isn't the place for you.

  • My fiance and I really enjoyed our stay here. Andy's house is right on the beach, he had a surfboard and a bodyboard for us to use and the when we needed to cool down we had an air conditioned room or a calm back deck chill out on. Andy stayed fairly busy while we were there, so it was almost like having our own beach house! When Andy was around he had good suggestions about what to do around town and was good conversation.

  • I just have to say that Andy and Mike were the greatest! They made me feel so welcome. Andy gave me a great introduction to the place and showed me the ropes. I was included in breakfast and a dinner that I did not expect was so glad to have been asked to accompany them. These guys are warm and friendly and make you feel right at home. The listing was exactly what I expected except it was better because it was closer to the beach than I thought! The location was perfect....and the beach was divine, not to crowded and just enough waves to practice a little suffering!
    The place is so laid back, open and spacious, no frills just a fantastic beach place to be yourself and hang out.
    Loved every minute of it and would do it again! Thanks guys for showing me such a great time!

  • We had a wonderful weekend staying with Andy! Great location and comfortable room! The beach area is not crowded and having the house right behind you was very convenient. Will definitely have to stay again our next trip down.

  • The surf shack was just as written. A great location right on the beach. The bed was comfy and the shower was hot. If you are looking for luxury, you may want to look elsewhere, but it was fine for what I had in mind. I also enjoyed a great run down to the lighthouse, and a swim before departing.

  • It was great staying right on the ocean - I went for a swim at 6am, it was great! Andy was away on vacation but his roommate Mike was very friendly and happy to help, and directed us to breakfast at the Lost Dog, which was perfect. Didn't have time to kayak but was really pleased that this was an option.

    This is a pretty relaxed place to be - we let ourselves in when we arrived as Mike was out, and made ourselves at home. It is far from fancy but just a really honest space to enjoy the beach.

  • This surf shack is the perfect location if you want incredibly easy access to the beach (as in, right off the back of the house), a deck with epic views at sunrise and at night time, and to be a little off the beaten path.

    Within less than 2 miles (easy bike, about 30 min walk) you're in the heart of downtown Folly Beach, close to awesome bars, unique finds and live music.

    I was looking to escape for a couple days, to get some sunshine and relax. I got that and more here.

  • Andy was a gracious host! He even let us check in a little early since we drove through the night and needed some sleep. The view was beautiful and the beach access was fantastic. Thank you again, Andy!

  • I stayed a few days at Andy's house on the beach and I had a great time!
    If you want to experience the good simple life of living right on the beach this is the place for you!
    The guys were really nice and friendly, super chilled atmosphere in the house. The room is comfortable and clean and so was the bathroom.
    a few bugs in the house but not in the room.

  • My wife and I had an awesome stay at Andy's "surf shack". It was exactly what we were hoping for. Andy and his roommate Mike were very accommodating and fun to hang out with. The view from the deck is perfect. The location is within a short drive or bike ride to all the restaurants and hangout spots in Folly Beach. Andy provided a really nice and concise list of all the great places to eat and enjoy some fun activities while we were in town. Thanks again.

Hey! Thanks for checking out my house/profile. I love 'living on island time' and own a creative agency that does a variety of digital marketing, photography, video, and consulting. When I'm not behind a camera or computer, you can usually find me on a kayak, surfboard, or playing some type of stringed instrument (preferably the mandolin). I am a huge fan of old time and bluegrass music and enjoy traveling to festivals, concerts, or to check out new places (preferably by kayak). My girlfriend and I write about our kayaking adventures on our (email hidden). I have had great experiences all over the world on AirBnB as well as on CS. I am happy to be a part of this community! Cheers :)
