- 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. There is no cost to be married or enjoy a renewal of vows directly on the beach, with the ocean as your wedding destination!!...moreless

- 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....moreless
ReviewsWrite a review
I used to live in Summerville, SC. In 2010 I moved to Atlanta, GA to accept a government position. I have missed the ocean, as eel as our friends and family there. So I decided we should vacation in our former home state. This lead us to find Dr Darcy's beach house. The house was great, more than enough space for our family and had everything we needed. Dr Darcy is an excellent hostess! She has really put a great deal of thought into everything you might need during your stay. I would certainly recommend her home for a great family trip or gathering.

Thanks so much for an absolutely perfect destination wedding. The house was incredible and perfect for our group. Adults and children both enjoyed the stay. Dr. Darcy was an impeccable host and also officiated our wedding. Skip was our chef in the house for the wedding reception and breakfast the next morning. His culinary skills were outstanding. We have recommended this listing to several friends already. Thanks again for a truly amazing and unforgettable start to our future.

We found this wonderful house online and started planning our destination wedding. From the beginning Dr Darcy was always ready to help!! Beds were comfortable and house was just as described. Had 25 ppl at the reception and had plenty of room inside to eat. The screened in porch was great for relaxing outside. Will stay with her again!! Thank you for everything!!

This place is awesome!!! Dr Darcy is wonderful to work with, and has a beautiful home that she is willing to share! This place had everything we needed for our family vacation. It's a very short walk to the beach, and also the golf cart was nice for our elderly father. We will definitely recommend this place to others, and will use it again in the future!!

Had a great time at the house, all 6 bedrooms were very comfortable, and got to use the golf cart to travel around downtown and to different areas of the beach. Folly beach is a great area and the house is just around the corner from the beach.

What a wonderful week...
What a wonderful week...
My family and I had the pleasure of renting Dr. Darcy's beautiful home at Folly Beach this past week. The property was exactly as described (a very short walk to the beach, spacious clean rooms,everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of towels and linens) and the golf cart was a great help in hauling all our beach chairs, tent, and kiddie items (also a plus in hauling said kiddies back to the house at the end of the day when they were tired). The house had plenty of room to accommodate our group of 14. The area of the beach where we were located was never crowded (it is very crowded over by the pier area). Dr. Darcy was more than accommodating (and prompt) in answering my silly questions, and she even shipped me some things I left behind within one day's time. Breakfast at Black Magic Cafe is a must...some of us walked there every morning and then walked the beach afterwards while the lazy ones slept....surfboards can be rented at McKevlin's surf shop (very funny to watch my family attempt that feat), Charleston is a very short drive for those that want to see a beautiful historic city, and evenings spent on the large screened in porch eating dinner were absolutely delightful. Definitely recommend this property...I'm already trying to figure out when we can go back next summer:)

A step into Paradise! A wonderful vacation spot and house for family and friends! I had my daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday party at The Venus House and Folly Beach! Dr. Darcy was wonderful and the house perfect! Stocked with so many needed items to make vacationing easy! We used the grill, golf cart and bikes! Just a quick walk to the beach where we ran every morning and enjoyed at night time too! My mini daschund came too! Folly is very dog friendly! The screened in patio out back was perfect for night time relaxing! Bug spray a must for night and early morning puppy walks! The house is perfect with doors to close off the upstairs and 2 downstairs bedrooms if needed for privacy! The restaurants were all wonderful, close and hardly a short wait! Looking forward to another vacation here!

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I Love Folly Beach! 'Venus' is my home and the Edge of America is a fabulous beach town I have called home for many years. My son is in college and I am excited that he only has one more year (and a few dollars) to finish, so I decided to rent out my home to help him make it to the finish line. I work downtown in Charleston as a psychotherapist, specializing in helping people with post-traumatic stress disorder, including combat veterans 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 family. 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.
