Other Folly Beach Properties house description

Located at 412 East Arctic Ave, Folly Beach SC, 29439, this PET FRIENDLY adorable classic 1940's beach cottage is the perfect getaway! Waiting for you upstairs are fabulous ocean views from the rocking chairs on the large front screened porch, and a dedicated pedestrian beach access directly across the street with views of the Folly pier. You can have sand between your toes in moments!

Talk about cute, this is it! Outside, a sunny exterior, attractive landscaping, large parking area, and outside shower beckon. Inside, you'll ooo and ahhh over the original 1940's white-washed beadboard walls and ceilings, and the original heart pine floors that gleam in the Carolina sunshine. With fun and funky decor, this is definitely not your grandmother's beach house!

2 bedrooms and 1 bath, living room, dining room, kitchen with dishwasher & laundry. Living room has a full size futon for extra sleeping space (in case Uncle Ralph crashes your beach getaway). Check out the pricing for information on renting. Please note that special holiday rates apply for Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year's - kindly send an inquiry for an accurate quote for those weeks. Minimum Age Requirements: All renters not vacationing with a family (i.e. a college group, or group of friends) must be at least 25 years of age.

We welcome well-behaved pets (and their well-behaved owners) at our home, so your pups can enjoy a beach vacation with you. Please obey local leash laws, and keep your dogs leashed while on the beach at all times.

We have loaded this home up with everything you might need for a relaxing vacation. You'll find us fully stocked with linens, towels, kitchen ware, books, games, movies and more. Blender? Got it. DVD player? Got it. Peace of mind? Got it.

In addition to the beach, there are many other ways to pass the time here. We have a great park two blocks away with a tennis court, basketball court, and children's play area. There is also a dog park and a public fishing pier and boat landing. You can enjoy standup paddleboarding, kayak tours and parasailing. A favorite activity is a stroll at the far end of the island to view the Morris Island Lighthouse with dolphins frolicking in the channel right in front of you.

Folly Beach has a host of good local restaurants on Center Street, which is a short 4 block walk from the house. In addition, the renowned culinary delights of downtown Charleston are a scant 20 minute drive. Toss in the historical cache of Charleston, and the possible diversions are endless! Once you go Folly, you'll never go back.

And remember, at Folly Beach, 'Tan Fat is Muscle!'
