The Island Girl' is a clean, Sweet Ole Cottage which has entertained happy folks for years and enjoyed some renovations and upgrades over the winter months of 2012, including a BRAND NEW sun deck and screened porch as well as new furniture, etc!
The tenants who have stayed with her, loved her so much, they say they wish they could stay forever. Pack a bag, throw in some flip flops, a swim suit and leave your worries behind at the Island Girl!
Located JUST ACROSS THE STREET from the BEACH (How Sweet is That?) and only two blocks from the Famous Bert's Market where you can buy anything from ice, to batteries, to organic vegetables, sushi and craft beer, the Island Girl is your key to relaxation. On the first floor, you have plenty of space to relax in the large family room, enjoy a family meal in the dining room or just relax on the screened-in porch while drinking your morning coffee. Upstairs, there are 3 nicely sized bedrooms, a full bath and entry to the sun porch which looks over the palms. Need some time away from the sun? No problem! Our backyard is nicely shaded from all of the beautiful, mature palm trees and there is even an outdoor shower to wash off the sand from your day at the beach.
At Folly Beach, you will discover the beauty and diversity of our quaint beach town! Referred to as the 'Edge of America', the town of Folly is very casual, and the locals are friendly. You will enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets, rich history, good food, expansive beaches, and a town center pier for fishing and sightseeing. Within steps of each other on Center Street, you'll find many restaurants, from upscale to the cool dive. Seafood is always fresh and available everywhere; but no fear, for the non-connoisseur there are taco shops and burger bars. Cool shops abound. And, surfing is big here, so bring your board or sign up for a lesson.
A clean and beautiful beach, there is plenty to do at Folly with wonderful swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, people watching, finding seashells, running and biking on the beach, and just doing what you want to do. Need to work off some energy after lounging at the beach? Just two blocks away is a wonderful Public Playground ,Tennis and Basketball Court.
And, if too sunburned, the charming and historic Charleston is just a short drive away. There you can enjoy some of the best restaurants on the East coast, explore the French Market, picnic at Waterfront or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the Holy City. Do some shopping on King Street, stroll through one of our beautiful museums, take a sunset cruise through the harbor or stop by one of the city's hot spots to people watch (including celebrities!)
Looking for a special or romantic weekend getaway and would like to customize your stay? No problem! We would be happy to have a chilled bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, chocolate dipped strawberries or whatever you wish, waiting for you when you arrive. Give us a call and we would be happy to make the arrangements!

Great place for three college roommates to reunite for some rest, relaxation, and catching up. We each had our own bedroom and plenty of room to spread out downstairs to eat, play, or read. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the gear for us to use. Attention to small details were throughout the house like the pictures, decor, and the notebook with suggestions for food, fun, and sunsets! We were a short drive to Charleston and did a day visit, but it was great to come 'home' to our comfortable house! Thank you, Desiree, for a great, clean place to stay!
The Island Girl was fantastic for our trip to Charleston! The house was comfortable and accommodating, and the beach was right down the street. We stocked up on supplies at Bert's and had a great BBQ dinner at Smokey Oak Taproom, per the Island Girl's recommendation. Thanks, Desiree, for sharing your place for the weekend!
Perfect beach vacation. Great house that has everything you need. One block from beach. Town is 1/2 mile easy walk away to some great restaurants. Desiree was very helpful before and during our trip.
We had a wonderful visit. The house is comfortable, so close to the beach, and equipped with lots of amenities. It was a perfect getaway. Desiree was friendly, responsive, and shared lots of great tips about where to eat and take surf lessons. We're definitely going to rent from her again.
We had a wonderful stay at the Island Girl! The house is adorable and very nicely taken care of. It is only a couple of blocks from the beach in a great location. Desiree had all of the beach necessities in the hallway closet for us to use (chairs, boogie boards, small cooler, etc) We will definitely be planning another stay at the Island Girl! Desiree was a wonderful hostess.
