YOUR PLACE: Nature enthusiast's haven! Photographer's dream! Artist's palette! Beautiful marsh view provides seabirds and sea life with dolphin and sweetgrass. Winding river trails are perfect for kayaking. Screened in porch offers a cozy, scenic retreat. There is also an old fort maybe worth exploring in the neighborhood.
.....FOLLY BEACH: Colorful and bohemian, Folly is full of personality, from its beachfront to its people to its homes to every local business in town, this little island is rich in culture and strong on fun! Swimming, surfing, paddle boating, parasailing, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, canoeing, etc. Be sure to see the Morris Island Lighthouse up close before you leave!
.....DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON: About a 12 minute drive and well worth it, if for the food alone! Some of the best food you'll ever taste is served in the fine restaurants in Charleston. Make sure to get local seafood. Try Cypress, Hank's and 82 Queen. Take a carriage tour or just a drive or walk around the Battery - beautiful mansions, many of which are open daily for tour.
About: I used to live in this little apartment when I was a student at College of Charleston. I chose it because it was on the water, and it took me just 13 minutes to be in class.
I loved to watch the sunrise over the lighthouse from the dock. I had a beautiful vegetable garden in the summer and loved to eat figs from the trees in the yard. I also gathered lots of pecans in the fall.
Since then, things have changed. There's a new dock, an incredible screened-in porch, and the apartment has a great new look!
But what brings me back is what brought me here from the start - the living, breathing marsh and the wealth of beauty that comes with it - the pace of the tides, the watercolor sunsets, the racing fish, and dolphins at play. Endless hours of sunshine on the dock and wonderful gatherings with friends and family.
Now, I offer this space to you, to share it as I've loved it, in all its compact quirkiness and all its natural glory. Hope to see you here soon!
Why Other Folly Beach Properties: Very close to the beach but away from the crowds. Lots of activity on Folly including restaurants, surfing, shopping and music. Come home to view the stars from the dock or have cocktails on the porch. Downtown is a short drive and very accessible from our location. Marsh Place is not only the best of both worlds but a sanctuary in itself.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Private refuge away from the bustle. Bird sanctuary. Crab, fish or sunbathe on the all new and spacious dock. Kayak from the backyard. Relax on the fabulous screened in porch.
