Private Homes house description

Welcome to one of the most quaint and charming cottages on Folly Beach, complete with a rose-covered white picket fence!

You will fall in love with this quintessential Folly Beach cottage as soon as you pull into the driveway which conveniently goes from street to street. There are not many beach rental homes that can boast of a copper roof and a yard filled with annuals and perennials, live oaks, palmetto trees, and a manicured lawn with landscape lighting added for spectacular nighttime ambiance.

The front of the house is graced by a full size screened porch which has been furnished with a custom oversized picnic table for al fresco dining along with seating which is perfect for adults to comfortably relax and listen to the ocean or watch the kids play on the front lawn. As you enter the front door you will be delighted to find vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, bead board walls, hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace. There is a small kitchen and eating area towards the back of the house which gives access to the rear sun porch as well as the winding staircase to the downstairs living area.

Downstairs you will find another living area which has been furnished with children in mind. There is a double futon, freestanding arcade console with over 100 classic arcade games, game table, and shelves stocked with an assortment of puzzles and games for all ages. On the downstairs porch, we have put in a ping pong table to provide additional off-beach entertainment.

This house is perfectly situated for two families. There are two bedrooms and a bath both upstairs and downstairs. The upstairs front bedroom has a queen sized bed while the second upstairs bedroom has a set of bunk beds. The downstairs front bedroom also has a queen sized bed, and the second bedroom has two twin beds. Overflow guests can bunk on the full futon in the downstairs living area.

Most importantly, the beach access is just two houses down the street. And after a long day of playing on the beach, there is no greater luxury than showering off in the enclosed outdoor shower.

This house has been furnished like a home and not a rental. We have tried to think of everything that would make this a comfortable and inviting home for you to spend your vacation time. We are sure you will fall in love with this house as quickly as we did the first time we walked in!

PLEASE NOTE...THIS IS A NON-SMOKING HOUSE. If you are a smoker, please do not rent it! Should smoke odor be detected upon your departure, you will be responsible for the smoke removal fees which run in the hundreds of dollars.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We live in Greenville, South Carolina, and have vacationed in Folly Beach numerous times since getting married 15 years ago. We have 3 children, and like nothing more than hanging out with friends and family at the beach house.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We have always been attracted to the laid back lifestyle that Folly seems to embody. Folly has somehow escaped the overbuilding and commercialization to which so many other nearby beaches have succumbed. Its proximity to downtown Charleston is also a huge draw. This house was the second and last house that we looked at in our search for our dream beach house. Had our purchase of this house not gone through, we would have abandoned our search for a beach house as this is our perfect beach getaway!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              406 E. Arctic is a mere 4 blocks to downtown Folly Beach's bustling Center Street and Pier. Bert's Market, a Folly Beach classic, is just 2 blocks away and is conveniently open 24/7/365. The playground is a 3-4 minute walk and of course the beach is right across the street! Don't forget...downtown Charleston and all that it has to offer is a short 15 minute drive.
