Property description

2 BR King & Queen, 3 BA - sleeps up to 4 adults - total max. occupancy 4. Configurations over typical usage of the 2 beds incurs add'l fee.

Light airy end unit featuring hardwood floors throughout and 12' ceilings in newest upscale planned urban community in the heart of Folly Beach... referred to locally as 'The Edge of America' and well known for it's eclectic mix of inhabitants, Folly has long been attractive to the artist community and is one of the best surfing areas on the east coast.

An ideal eclectic getaway in a new, lower density, well designed complex with Caribbean flair. Suitable for 1-2 couples or small family, well behaved canine family members are welcome when responsible adult to child+dog ratio is 1:1 or better. Peaceful, perfectly situated location away from the hustle and bustle of front beach party atmosphere, yet truly a 7 minute stroll to beach and fishing pier, 5 minutes to Center Street restaurants and entertainment. Charleston, with all it's charm, is only 15 minutes away via motorcoach. An electric piano in living room delights keyboardists and vocalists alike.

We strive to keep our home chemical scent free by cleaning with natural products and essential oils as well as avoiding chemical pesticides etc. Chemical scent free laundry detergent as well as chemical free air freshener and insect repellent provided. We ask that guests refrain from using artificially scented products while in residence. If advice is needed as to where/how to obtain naturally scented personal care items we're glad to assist.

Spacious... room to be together.. room to be apart: We've not converted the small study into a dedicated less desirable 3rd bedroom as is often done, electing to retain it as a multi-use space instead. Our guests are generally more mature adults seeking better quality accommodations and a more open relaxed atmosphere. Study includes yoga mat etc. as well as a full size drafting table enabling accommodation of other pursuits. There is also a sofa should you have an extra family member joining you for a day or two. This room is truly meant as another space to retreat, design, think and read, not meant to be pressed into full service as sleeping accommodation for a full week. However, in a pinch, for a couple nights it'll do nicely.

GUEST COMMENTS and ONLINE COST ESTIMATOR: See our supplemental webpage for a wealth of add'l info. including scans of guest comments, floor plans, online cost estimator, area info., etc. Link is just above the photos about 3/4 of the way down the page. Also, to help assure that you receive responses from us in a timely manner, please check your spam folder if you've not heard from us in 24 hours after sending an inquiry.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I'm a lifelong resident of the Charleston area and have always enjoyed the water oriented activities this beautiful coastal area has to offer. Zoom in on the map below to see location and relationship to points of interest.

Why the Owner Chose Back Bay:
We originally chose this townhome as a second residence because Folly has the cleanest air on the east coast and I needed to escape the effects of the heaviest spring pollens at home. We are now able to share our townhome year round as I am no longer forced to flee from home in spring.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
With the county boat landing just a couple blocks away, it's convenient to go for a quick paddle on a whim, the back side of Folly offers wonderful places to kayak. We never know what we're going to see. The island is also a great place to jog and bicycle, plus miles and miles of beach to enjoy. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water makes beach excursions so much more convenient and really does minimize sand inside. The location is prefect, not in the hub bub of front beach activity, yet an easy walk to beach access and to restaurants etc. on Center Street. ↂ GREEN ALL NATURAL CLEANING PRODUCTS ↂ LOW TO NO PESTICIDE USE (baits & plant based pesticide used only if required, essential oil steam mopping is our most effective deterrent) ↂ WIRELESS INTERNET will be deactivated on request (others close though & will lose Netflix) ↂ Cable TV vs. satellite ↂ no toxic 'wrinkle free' sheets & no linen service used, we do it all ↂ no falling asleep to the overpowering smell and effects of bleached linens, dryer sheets, or fabric softeners ↂ linens washed and dried in machines free of chemicals/synthetic scents ↂ chlorine filters on showers ↂ filtered water in fridge and ice-maker ↂ no synthetic scents ↂ no smoking ↂ CAT ALLERGIES? We only allow dogs ;)
