One of Folly's favorite stays, 'Folly's Best Kept Secret' was completely renovated as a personal residence with all the comforts of home. Centrally located, the home is just a short walk (3 minutes) to the beach and the fishing pier, which also happens to be one of the best surf breaks on the island! Center Street with all it's restaurants and shopping is just one block away. Relax and enjoy the casual lifestyle that Folly is famous for, without ever moving your car! Dine at one of the great restaurants, then take a walk on the beach or if you prefer, watch the sunset from the pier. Finish the evening with cocktails and conversation on the home's large screened porch. A true four-season home that's cozy and warm, it's also perfect for winter getaways!

About the owner: Ernie Banis is a Charleston native who has spent most of his life enjoying the beauty of Charleston and its barrier islands. A local residential realtor and avid surfer who first learned the sport on the waves of Folly forty years ago, 'I believe the cozy comfort I've incorporated in this home is perfect for the full Folly experience.' While this home is new to the vacation rental market, I've personally been involved in vacation rentals for years. Having managed family beach rentals at nearby Kiawah Island has given me a unique perspective on what makes for a fun and relaxing island getaway!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: In real estate the rule is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. I really believe my home's location, being close to both the beach and the nightlife, is an awesome spot.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Folly is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The minute I cross the bridge all my worries are left on the mainland! I've always found it to be a really good time! Both my daughter and now my grandkids have experienced their first 'toes in the sand' moment on the beach at Folly.
