Private Homes house description

Marsh Gayz is a private river front home with a deep water dock tucked away on Tabby Island, a secluded waterfront neighborhood of Folly Beach, South Carolina. Surrounded by age old live oaks, saltmarsh meadows and the wide waters of the Folly River, this beautiful home features spectacular private views of the Low Country at its finest. Although sequestered away from the main beach drag, it’s still only a 5 minute stroll to the beach and the famed surfer’s paradise known as the “Washout.” The quaint commercial district of Center Street and Folly Landing, with its many restaurants, shops, night clubs and parks, is also just a short bicycle, drive or boat ride away. You can easily launch your boat at the landing and dock in your own backyard during your stay 24/7. Historic downtown Charleston, SC is a scenic 15-20 minute hop over the island connector that characterize this part of the East Coast.


Unlike many coastal homes, only four steps up takes you to the haven within. This single story dwelling sleeps (6-8) people with three bedrooms and 3 full baths (one with a deep Jacuzzi tub). The roomy master suite has a sweeping view of the river via glass sliders that open onto the wide back deck. A spacious great room with beautiful Morris Island brick gas fireplace, bumper pool/games table and separate walk-in bar embraces even more stunning views of the river. The large well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a central island, dishwasher, microwave, trash compacter, multiple tools for the culinary inclined and a large dining table for seating 8 or more. A small study/shell room can be found off the main entryway, and there is also full pantry/laundry facility and a large garage. This home contains all the amenities including wireless Internet, Cable TV, 52” flat screen TV, DVD player, sound dock for Ipods, ceiling fans, and central heating and air conditioning.

Although the house is a sanctuary in itself, it’s really all about the great outdoors. A spacious sundeck spans the entire back of the house and leads you across the lawn to a short railed dock ending at the river. The dock facility has both floating and stationary platforms, and is complete with a shaded area and bench seats, fish cleaning station with sink, water, lights and power. There is also a paved patio area in the back yard that is perfect for oyster roasts, shrimp or crab boils and other seafood affairs with a stainless table, portable cooker and pots, shell barrels and an open pit fireplace for adding a little late night ambiance.

Marsh Gayz is an ideal getaway for families or friends who have an interest in all of the watersports delights that the river world offers, while fish, crabs, clams and oysters can be caught or found right out the back door! With amazing sunsets to the west, the statuesque Morris Island Lighthouse to the east and miles of river and marsh in between, one could not want more for a perfect summertime setting. It’s also an excellent venue for small quiet gatherings whether for family vacations, reunions, graduations, small weddings or housing wedding guests. (Not available for renters under 25 years of age.)

If you're looking for a private river front home with a deep water dock on Folly Beach, we invite you to consider Marsh Gayz – a by-owner private vacation rental on the South Carolina coast. Relax your cares away or take a running splash off the dock, and enjoy the peaceful serenity and nature of Marsh Gayz where the loudest thing you'll hear is the soothing sound of the river, and the occasional blow of hello from our regular porpoise friends.

A new door in the back foyer now has an long open pane of glass and the great room has French doors that opens out to the back deck, both really brings the outdoors in and enhance the view. The back foyer and bath have also been tiled, which we hope to extend through the kitchen and hallways by Fall 2014. The outdoor lower cement patio has gotten a refresh and is dubbed the “Picasso Party Pit”; a conversation piece of its own! This is where we have our oyster roasts, Lowcountry boils, etc.... We're installing another outdoor sink/counter on the patio with running water which makes party clean-up super easy. The master bed/bath has been overhauled and each bedroom has been refreshed. The great room received a new leather sleeper sofa. ...moreless

                            This rental is amazing. We had 2 Adults and 5 Kids on our vacation. There was plenty of room within the house to wheere we did not feel crowded and on top of each other. The amenities that are provided to enjoy the beach, ocean, and fishing are great! All you need to bring is a bag of clothes and you are good to go to enjoy everything that this place has to offer. The dolphins greeted us on our first walk out on the dock, and they came around twice each day. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to escape reality for a couple days, and enjoy beauty and relaxation that is offered from the Folly Beach area. We will be coming back again for our next vacation in the fall or spring to make more enjoyable family memories again! -Chris

                            Party of five to celebrate a 70th for Dad. The winter has been fierce and we never got to the beach--this was the place to celebrate. Marsh gayz is a beautiful private home, very comfortable to hang out by the fire, walk to the beach, or enjoy the patio, deck and pier over the marsh. Saturday morning, there was a blackbird washing up in the birdbath. Everything you could want on a vacation is at hand. All the sports equipment, kayaks, fishing, crabbing--it is all there to use. And all the kitchen equipment is in place with labels to find at a glance. Best appointed kitchen I have seen and comfortable space to work in. The other reviews sounded over the top, but this home really is a welcoming, well-loved space where guests' wants and needs have been anticpated. Really charming. And we were able to get a last minute reservation at Blu in a nearby hotel, excellent fish and seats by the firepit on the patio after.-now if our ACC teams could have made the finals, the weekend would have been perfect! I can see us making return visits to this lovely place, a break to be together in a fun place!

Our home is meant for glorious celebrations; I saw the special cake your daughter brought. I wish we knew about the milestone birthday in advance, we always make a great effort to acknowledge momentous occasions in a special way . We welcome you back any time.

                            As a "repeat offender," I was delighted to return to find the home even better. The renovations are wonderful yet the home remains very cozy and with everything a family could want to enjoy the beauty of the river. I returned this year for a full week and was again delighted with all of the amenities. Some friends came over for an oyster roast and to teach my children to kayak. Natalie and the owner have thought of everything down to the last detail including having a complete set of oyster tools and an oyster barrel for the shells! The "party pit" is truly complete and ready for outdoor cooking. I brought my children and my parents this trip and made so many memories. Everyone was delighted from the youngest to the oldest. Natalie, that you again for being such a wonderful hostess!

                            Owner response: We couldn't be happier that you maximized your stay by enjoying the outdoor "Picasso party pit" that was re-invented for entertaining. You utilized our home for which it was intended and built lasting memories with your family, friends and especially your parents. We're glad you found your sweet spot with us on Folly. Thank you for being a "repeat offender." We look forward to you returning.

                            My family and I recently spent the weekend at Marsh Gayz for my son's 1st birthday. This place was perfect on so many levels. My retired father loved fishing off the dock, my step daughter was completely occupied with hunting for shells in the back yard, we all LOVED waking up to the Lowcountry scenery in the back yard and the unbelievable sunsets. We hosted a BBQ for some close friends and family and they had nothing but excellent comments about this property and said they would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the future. To top our stay off, my son took his first steps in the living room, which made us want to stay even longer. We made so many family memories there. The place was in immaculate condition. The home has so much to offer families with all of the cooking, fishing and recreational gear. We plan to return and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay on Folly Beach.

                            Owner response: Dear Lisa, Jay & Lucas, It warms our heart to hear how much you, your family and friends enjoyed Marsh Gayz. We worked really hard on the "Picasso party pit" so it's great to hear you put it to good use with your BBQ cookout as well as oyster roast. Way to go Lucas on his first steps! How proud you must be. Hopefully distant relatives can make the trip down sometime and you can return to our magical place.

                            Having traveled from Massachusetts & Michigan, we were delighted with the surroundings. The dock was the most favorite spot - enjoyed throughout the day and evening. The privacy and peace and quiet were greatly appreciated. Wonderful Location! Close to everything but secluded and not "on top of your neighbors." Reservation process was very easy. Best wishes for continued success in the rental arena.

                            Thanks for the last minute reservation. Saturday was beautiful with walks on the beach, fishing (caught a few) crabbing (caught a few also) Dolphins and watching the beautiful Marsh. Your place is well equipped and comfortable. This is our first trip to Marsh Gayz and we would love to return. Our Son-Daughter in law & 3 boys were here in May, so they were also excited to return with us.

We've made some really nice updates to the house over the Winter, you'll be so pleasantly surprised at not only the decorative changes, but structurally, we replaced the sliding glass doors in the great room to these lovely French doors with sidelights that open out onto the deck. We replaced the flooring in the back door area and bathroom with ceramic tile flooring too. Can't wait for you to return this year. Thanks for everything you do when you are here. It's a pleasure having you visit each year.

                            What a great vacation stay! My family and I (wife, 21 year old son and 18 year old daughter) stayed at Marsh Gayz over Thanksgiving week and it suited us perfectly. The private deep-water dock gave us a place to fish and crab, the easy access to Charleston allowed for us to have our Thanksgiving meal at our favorite restaurant Husk, and all the equipment was on-site so we were able to have an awesome seafood boil. This house is perfectly equipped for a quintessential low country vacation experience. I can't wait to get back and want to especially thank Property Manager Natalie Staropoli-she went out of her way to ensure that we had the best experience possible. -Dave Taylor/Charlotte, NC

                            Owner response: Thank you Dave, it was terrific having you and your family join us and enjoy all the pleasures of Marsh Gayz. I'm pleased to let you know that the owner came in shortly after your departure and continued with some major updates while home for the holidays. A new door in the back foyer with a wide open pane of glass was installed as was French doors with sidelights replaced the unusable sliding doors in the Great Room. With both accessible to the back deck, it really brings the outdoors in and enhances the view 10x more. The back foyer has also been tiled, which we hope to extend through the kitchen and hallways by next Fall. Additionally, the lower back deck dubbed the “Picasso Party Pit”; where you can set up a Lowcountry boil/seafood stew or have an oyster roast is getting a sink/counter with running water which makes patio clean-up super easy. New photos are on our website and we'll continue adding as more updates are made. We hope you will consider Marsh Gayz in the future and also recommending to friends. Best wishes to you and yours in 2014.

                            Marsh Gayz Truly a home away from home! The attention to detail is all to make you feel comfortable and relaxed with excellent instructions that made this a care free vacation. The furnishings and amenities are excellent but do not make you feel like you are in a museum. Comfortable, immaculate, and usable! The location is PERFECT with an amazing view of the river from the great room, master bedroom, and deck where we enjoyed spectacular sunsets every evening. The walk to and from the beach is almost too quick and the beach itself is almost pristine. We vacation in Charleston every year mainly for the fine dining, and felt pleasantly surprised to find the same caliber (or better) dining at Folly Beach. We spent a great deal of time on the dock equipped with running water sun tanning, fishing, and watching the dolphins make their rounds. We regret that we did not bring our boat thinking that our little 17' runabout would be too small for the location. We were so wrong! Any size boat will do with the floating dock so we won’t make that mistake again. Natalie is more than just the property manager as with her help, our vacation was perfect. I also want to especially thank her for finding and returning a very special piece of jewelry that found its way under my bed. We look forward to future idealic stays at Marsh Gayz.

                            Owner response: Thank you for giving us such great feedback and a peek into your enjoyable vacation. We strive to make all our guests as comfortable as possible and enjoy offering up all that we know about the the best kept secrets on Folly and around Charleston.We treasure the place we live and it is no accident that Charleston, SC was named the top city to travel to for the 3rd year in a row. We hope you will return to see some wonderful transformations that have been made to the master suite, as well as some other decorative changes throughout. Based on what our renters needed, we now can offer bicycles, fishing rods, kayaks and hopefully by the new year, a new golf cart to be all included in the rental. Wishing you and yours a magical holiday season.
