                      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 Townhome:
                      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!
