Mariners Cay condo description

Sunset 98, Mariner’s Cay is ideally situated in the southwest corner of the Mariner’s Cay compound giving guests a panoramic view of the Folly River as well as knockout sunsets from the wrap-around screen porch. Mariner’s Cay is a gated community of residents and renters, which offers guests not only a swimming pool and tennis courts but also is only minutes away from the beaches and town of Folly Beach either by car, golf cart, bicycle or walking. The privacy and lack of traffic is perfect for small children and teenagers to bike, trike, skateboard or just hang out.
Since Sunset 98 is a corner unit, the view and the light upon entry is one of those ‘wow’ moments. With a southwestern exposure, the kitchen/dining/living area is totally open to the Folly River and marshes, including the occasional school of marlin. The next ‘wow’ moment comes at sunset when one must get his drink, hurry to the balcony and allow him/herself to be awed.
As can be seen by the photos, the unit has a large, master bedroom opening onto the balcony; a twin bedroom off the rear balcony and a double bedroom in the southeast corner for those who just want to get away for a nap or a good book. The open living area has a newly installed flat screen HDTV on a wall pivot, ie, no messing around by the kids...DVD is also included. In addition, both the master and double bedrooms have flat screen HDTVs, and for those who can’t completely get away, wireless is available throughout the unit.

Folly Beach is a six mile long barrier island, and the closest beach to historic Charleston, South Carolina (15 minutes on the Connector) where one can find outstanding cuisine, the performing arts and Civil War history. At the far eastern end of Folly Island, the historic Morris Island Lighthouse is a short trek through the dunes; and at the far western end, Folly Beach County Park, which is quieter and more scenic than the busy Center Street beach.

During summer season (May 23-Aug. 7), we rent by the week and our turnover day is Saturday. Check-in: 3:00 PM; Check-out: 10:00 AM

                  We wanted someplace quiet, yet active, to relax with good restaurants, perhaps a beach, and outstanding culture, cuisine with some history nearby. Hard to find? Yes, but the Charleston Shore at Folly Beach has all of these, as any guest will soon see.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Sunset, relaxation, sunset, walkinig on the beach, sunset, good neighbors, sunset, and fun/friendly atmosphere of Folly Beach.
