Other Folly Beach Properties house description
It just doesn’t get any better than this. If you love to see the ocean and hear the waves from your bedroom…. If you want to be only steps away from planting your feet in the sand…. If you want to enjoy Folly Beach without breaking the bank…the Mini-Pearl is the perfect place for you.
Renovated in 2009, the Mini-Pearl is a great place for a lazy getaway or work vacation. Our screened and open-air porches offer the opportunity to soak in awesome ocean breezes, maybe even nap on the hammock, while staying in touch with the outside world.
This classic beach house, built in 1928, has been in the Jackson Family for 40 years. In our opinion, it reflects the charm and character of old Folly.
So, come and join us (with your pooch) on the Edge of America. Our goal is for you to have a most pleasurable experience. A home away from home that you can enjoy for years to come.

Perfect get-away... we'll be back!
Perfect get-away... we'll be back!
My husband and I loved our stay at the Mini Pearl! We are hoping to make Folly Beach and the Mini Pearl an annual trip. Highlights: - Beach is literally less than 100 steps away - Bikes make it super easy to ride down to Tokyo Crepes for breakfast (which we did almost every morning) - The screened in porch is perfect for a morning cup of coffee - Hammock makes for a perfect nap location - Clean kitchen with everything you need (utensil-wise) to throw together a quick meal - Plenty of room to store the surf board we brought with us - Beautiful fresh flowers upon arrival - Everything is within biking/walking distance - Very helpful list of restaurants -- all suggestions we tried were delicious - Less than 30 minutes from downtown Charleston - Very clean, quiet beach - Directly across from beach access (little path through the dune) - Even though pets are allowed, had absolutely no "pet odor" -- very clean We are in the process of planning another trip to Folly, and didn't consider staying anywhere else! We had a wonderful time and can't wait to visit again!

My week at the Mini Pearl was wonderful. The unit has everything you need for a stress free, relaxing stay at the beach. I was so happy that I could bring my dog along with me. I believe she really enjoyed her stay as well. I look forward to coming back to the Mini Pearl the first chance I get!!!

This place was so cute and perfect for us and our 4-legged children. The lot is huge and is partially fenced...if you have good dogs, you can just turn them out and they'll relax in the shade of the huge live oaks and pines. Just steps from the beach and you truly can see and hear the waves from the porch. We kept all the windows open and slept like babes. Kitchen was very functional - we enjoy cooking and ate almost every meal at the MiniPearl. Coffee maker, oven, stove, GRILL, it's all there. We grabbed the fresh catch from Crosby's every day and had our own seafood meals each evening out on the screened porch. Lovely. Just can't say enough about this place and how special it was to us to be able to bring our 4-legged family members. Highly recommend!!

We just had a week at the Mini Pearl (the downstairs unit). Although small, it was just what we needed since we were basically only there to sleep anyway. I recommend this unit and our toilet broke while we were there and they had it fixed within a couple of hours. Fresh flowers were waiting for us upon our arrival and there was a grill for our use also. We also had chairs and a cooler to use during our stay which prevented us from having to clutter up the car with that type of stuff. Also, there is a very nice outdoor covered seating area which was a great place to read and catch the ocean breeze. The place definintely needs a coat of paint, but that kind of added to the laid back feel of the place. Folly Beach is a great, very laid-back atmosphere. I highly recommend eating at the Lost Dog Cafe and Taco Boy, the best restaurants there for service and food. Also, the beach was wonderful and not very crowded, which we loved.

My fiance and I had a wonderful mini-vacation in the Mini Pearl! It's just the right size for a couple. We were in Folly Beach to plan our wedding and this was a wonderful place to call "home" for several days. We visited FB in January; we were surprised to still have a few warm, beautiful days! We enjoyed the patio, the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves. The Mini Pearl is close enough to the ocean we could still hear the waves at night with the windows open. We had such a wonderful time; we will be back for sure!!

What a quaint and comforable place to spend a vacation! So many extras were provided, such as beach chairs, beach towels and other items required for a delightful stay on the beach. Being able to bring our pets was an added plus!! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for an enjoyable time of relaxation... :-)
