Fabulous beach house one block from the Atlantic ocean! You can also create a sacred vacation and soul retreat for yourself, couples, or group, check out details at: http://newhopebegins.com/sacred-vacations/. This is truly a wonder-filled beach house and retreat home for families, groups, and events. Last year, three sets of families enjoyed their wedding reception (of 25 people or less), after celebrating ceremonies at their local church or beachfront.

This fabulous property is one street off the ocean. The walk to the beach is about the length of 7 houses before you sink your feet in the sand. A golf cart is available for most vacationers to make that short walk easy with beach gear! The house is on a tidal creek with the marsh in the back, making a serene setting for island nights. The back porch is both screened in and open to the sky for lively conversations and intimate moments looking up at the stars! You can hear the ocean tide from the front porch, which is a great morning opener. Folly nightlife includes live bands and/or musicians almost nightly. The Folly marina, only 3 blocks away, offers daytime or sunset sailboat excursions and fishing trips locally or for adventurers, out to the ocean for deep sea fishing (very fun!). Downtown Charleston is a 20 minute drive, the #1 tourist destination in America, known for its hospitality, a major foodie destination, quaint architecture, historical tours and carriage rides, and fabulous shopping, too! Your family or friends may also enjoy the local Plantations with beautiful gardens or even tours of the many historical churches. If you stay in Folly the whole week, don't miss the fabulous sunrises on front beach and spectacular sunsets, especially from the marina on the Folly river.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I Love Folly Beach! I have renamed my home 'Seaspirit' (formally 'Venus') at the Edge of America in a fabulous beach town called home for many years. I started renting my house to help my son get through college...and he has graduated now!! Now I rent it out to be free do more volunteer work and research for combat veterans! I work downtown in Charleston as a psychotherapist, specializing in helping people with post-traumatic stress disorder, including vets and victims of sexual assault. I love to walk on the beach and love boogie boarding in the ocean every day of the summer. My wonder-filled friends have extended many invites for me so I can continue to enjoy the island life while I make sacrifices for my community. I hope that you and your family will enjoy my home, have fun, make loving, silly beach memories together, and treasure your time and life...even for just a week at one of the best beaches in America.
Why the Owner Chose Other Folly Beach Properties: Having traveled to many beaches in the United States, Mexico, Greece, and even the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, Folly Beach remains my absolute favorite. The Secret: I LOVE the WAVES!!! Not too little, not too big, just right for body surfing, floating around, boogie boarding, skim boarding, and even real surfing (I have boards of different sizes for everyone to get a chance at riding the waves).
The Unique Benefits at this House: Awesome beach, just a block away. My house is unique in being just a block off the beach, but right on the marsh, on a very quiet street that doesn't get the main beach traffic, to enjoy peace and quiet and all of the fun of a beach town.
