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 3pm. Check out is 11am.

Rental includes use of surfboards (8' longboard, 6,6" funboard), 10ft SUP, and a bike. (You can rent another one if you need) I 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.

Interaction with guests

House is shared by my roomate Daniel and myself. I often work from home and will be in and out during the day.

Fantastic place at a great value. Although the room and a half bath were downstairs, while the shower was upstairs, the upstairs living area was very spacious, clean, with plenty of natural light and beach views. My wife and I were impressed with the back deck and the walkability of the neighborhood. Andy's place is a nice 2 mile walk from downtown Folly Beach, which is perfect for morning walks to/from breakfast or evening walks to/from supper. Andy is a laid-back and friendly host and gave us plenty of privacy. Glad to have found this spot!

We loved that it was on the ocean, The room is minimal but it really makes up for it with the proxcimity to the ocean. The host was a really relatable "surfer" polite and friendly. We stayed here with our 5 month old. The bedroom was in the basement and the bed was a full but we had lots of fun.

Such a cool place, welcoming host and a million dollar view. Maybe a bit rough around the edges but just about perfect in every way. The deck is hanging right over the beach which is just pristine and perfect for long walks. Super safe feeling neighborhood. I woke this morning feeling so relaxed and refreshed from the beach air and comfy bed. This place is exceptional.

The space was great! Literally right on The Washout! I came to surf and I couldn't have asked for a better place to do just that! If you looking for an upscale place this is not for you, this is a surf house in all it's glory, amazing view of the ocean from the ocean side deck, comfy bed, and great people.

Truly a remarkable place and host. Andy is a great person with an amazing location in Folly beach. He went out of his way to make our experience memorable. Setting us up with Bike rentals for the day, and driving us into town. His place has one of the best views I've ever experienced of the ocean. My girlfriend and I spent hours drinking wine and looking out to the ocean. We saw dolphins and people surfing. The place was very comfortable, inviting, and clean. Amazing!

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). 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 :)
