Turn of River condo description

'Marsh Mellow' is a recently renovated condominium at the Turn of River complex. In 2011 the unit had many rooms updated with new flooring and fixtures and appliances, plus a built in dining area and entertainment center. For 2013 the unit got some fresh paint and an updated screened in porch. In early April of 2013 the entire HVAC system was upgraded. The new HVAC unit is one of the quietest on the market - about as loud as a dishwasher. This is a critical feature for anyone staying at Turn of River, as the design of the complex puts the compressor units literally right outside your front door. The new system is designed to help you 'Mellow' out while here.

Another change that started in November 2013 is a new property management company. With this change we now bring you a welcome kit, high end crispy pressed linens and great service during your stay at Marsh Mellow. This change also brings slightly lower rates from last year, including the removal of the security deposit. We hope these changes make an already great condo truly special and enjoyable for out guests.

With 3 queen sized beds and 3 full bathrooms - 2 of which are en-suite - Marsh Mellow is perfect for 3 couples to escape and enjoy Folly Beach as well as the greater Charleston area. Downtown Folly is about a 10 minute walk from the building, and the beach another 5 minutes. For those of you flying into the area, Charleston International Airport is only 20 miles away, allowing quick and easy access to the condo.

In addition for room for 6, each bedroom has a TV with cable including HBO. The main living room has a 50' HD plasma with a blu-ray player and stereo system, along with a selection of blu-ray movies to enjoy. The stereo has an aux cable waiting for your iPod or MP3 player. There are also books, magazines and games for those rare rainy lazy days indoors. Wireless internet and local phone are also included.

The condo sits on the coastal Folly River. This river leads right to the ocean and you can often see dolphins swimming by. Enjoy the views from the large screened in porch or balcony. You can easily walk across the bridge and be in downtown Folly taking in all of the shops and restaurants. Even the beach is an easy walk. Imagine waking up and taking a stroll down to watch the sunrise each morning. Sunsets over the river can be enjoyed from the porch and balcony. Turn of River is on a basin that empties and fills with the changing tides. Sit in the living room and look out the window at full tide and you will feel like you are in a house boat, floating on the ocean marsh river.

Folly itself offers kitschy shops and fun restaurants, all in a few compact blocks next to the beautiful pier and ocean. Take a kayaking tour. Or try a paddle boat adventure! Head to Washout to see the local surfers try to master the waves. Or take the long walk through the dunes to see the Morris Lighthouse. What sets Folly apart from many ocean escapes is the simple homey feel you get from the community. You won't find high rise buildings lining the ocean. Most of the beach front is made up of homes set far back from the shore. It's what a beach was meant to be.

If you need more excitement, Charleston is only 9 miles away where you can easily enjoy everything this vibrant and cosmopolitan city has to offer. Or take a ride over to West Ashley for a more suburban shopping, dining, and theater experience. When you stay at Folly, you aren't limited to just the beach.

The exterior of Turn of River was renovated in 2011 with all new siding, decking, and lighting. Along with the updated interior, Marsh Mellow is a fresh escape for you and your loved ones. One of the key renovations to this unit, which you won't find in many others in this complex, is the kitchen/dining wall was knocked out, and the living room expanded, making for a giant open space for entertaining. You won't miss any action on the big screen TV while cooking up a great meal for everyone. It's a one of a kind condo in a great location.

During the summer season we do a weekly rental, Saturday to Saturday. Last minute exceptions can be made if the condo is not rented. During the off season we are very flexible with the # of nights and the start and end dates.

Please note that in 2013 and 2014 the two bridges that lead into Folly Beach are being replaced. Construction on the bridge near Turn of River will be going on year round. So you can expect some construction noise and traffic. The good news is you can walk to town, so you shouldn't get caught up in the traffic back up created by the construction.

                  Why Turn of River:
                  As a kid, I spent summers at the beach. My parents rented a beach house every single year. I grew up spending many summers by the ocean, with both friends and family. When I relocated to SC I wanted to find a great beach like I had back home in New England. I fell in love with Folly the first time I went there. It was so simple. Mom and pop shops and restaurants. It wasn't built up and commercialized. The condo itself was a diamond in the rough. The prior owner had converted it to a 2 bedroom, giving me the opportunity to put it back to a 3 bedroom with some unique features. The dated bathrooms were the first thing to go! I had to make some compromises, but overall I think it's a very cool space. I have traveled all over the world and wanted to make a space that people would enjoy coming to.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Location, location, location! Every morning is a walk across the bridge and down to the ocean to watch the sunrise. My favorite haunts are Blu at Tides, Ritas, and Taco Boy. I always try to drive down to the entrance to the path to the Morris Lighthouse, as it is such a remote area. If I need something more fun I go to Basil in Charleston, or go catch a movie in West Ashley. The mix of having the beach with so many other options makes Folly a great escape.
