Property description

Best Value! Gorgeous, Walk to Beach, Water View!
Location! Every amenity you want!

Folly Beach/Charleston is the ideal winter getaway.

This is a great value for a gorgeous 3 Bedroom, 3 bathroom, Turtle Bay townhome on the Folly River with a gorgeous (partial)view, sunsets, dock, and pool-just 20 steps from the front door. Short walk to beach, Center Street shops and restaurants and Folly Pier. It is 1600 square feet on 2 levels with a garage and carport. A very nice, private screened porch with outdoor dining table, lounge chair, and seating, as well as a sunning porch with lounge chairs off the master bedroom. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom.

*Five Blocks to the Beach and Center Street shops and restaurants.*

*15-20 minutes to downtown Charleston*

The home is a very nice, newer (2003), nicely and comfortably furnished, Fully Equipped from the blender to the linens with nice extras like 36 inch HDTV with cable and TIVO/DVR, DVD, VCR, high speed internet with wireless connectivity, washer/dryer, pool and dock, screened porch and sunning porch. The house and pool are landscaped beautifully with flowers and Palmetto trees, giving it a great tropical vacation feel year-round. Email for more photos and information!

Everything you could want to do nearby: beach, fishing, water sports, downtown Charleston, Historic Plantations, fabulous restaurants (even one right next door), serenity and relaxation. A Folly/Charleston combo vacation can't be beat. Best of beach and city vacation all in one. **Boat slip available for rent--please inquire.

Professionally cleaned. Linens and towels included. At no charge to you like other rentals.

The house is fully equipped with special extras to make your stay easier and more enjoyable, with added benefits like condiments in the refrigerator, spice rack, coffee filters, soap, laundry detergent, etc. Those little things that you find in a real home that save you the trouble of having to bring or buy them. This is island living and all its charm. Tranquility and luxury combine to ease you into a slower pace of life. Enjoy the natural surroundings from the private decks, watch the sunset from a hammock swing on the dock, or walk to the beach.

Activities: Folly Beach or the Edge of America, as it is often referred to by locals, is 6 miles of sandy beach that is perfect for swimming, surfing, shelling, boating, parasailing or bike riding. The 1000 foot fishing pier provides a perfect place to view the ocean. Public clay tennis and basketball courts with an awesome playground in full view so you can watch your children while you play tennis is only 1 mile away on East Erie. Nearby James Island County park offers kayaking, bicycle and paddle boat rentals, roller-blading, a climbing wall and a large water park.

Historic Charleston is a short 15 minute drive. This beautiful city of charm and grace offers horse drawn carriage rides, tours of antebellum mansions and stately southern gardens, gourmet dining, museums, antiquing, and walking tours that take you back in time. Take a boat to Fort Sumter to learn about the start of the civil war. A short drive from Charleston are impressive plantation homes and gardens. Golf courses available within a short drive. Folly Beach and Charleston offer a kind of beauty and experience that is unforgettable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I went to Folly Beach for a vacation in 2002 and refused to leave!! I quit my job and bought this beautiful house. There are many people on Folly with similar stories. Crazy but true. After 3 years I had to return to Washington for work. Now, I share the house with others and visit as often as I can.

Why the Owner Chose Turtle Bay:
I came to Folly Beach for a vacation in 2002 and I bought this house before I left. I went home, quit my job and moved here. Yes, that sounds very nutty, but if you start talking to the locals, you will find that my story is not unusual. Unfortunately, after 3 blissful years loving every minute of Folly and Charleston with all their charms and making many friends in this friendly tight-knit community, I had to return to Washing DC. Now, I share my favorite place in the world with others and visit every chance I get.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Sunset and dolphin watching from the floating dock in the evening is one of my favorite things to do. I also LOVE the great restaurants that I can walk to and friendly island atmosphere. Blue Restaurant in the Holiday in is new and my new favorite. It's incredible to stop in for something refreshing or lunch on the deck in the day time or to dine in the gorgeous, uniquely designed interior with beautiful views for dinner. I LOVE going to the Lost Dog for breakfast every morning--and it is only 3 blocks from my house!
