Other Folly Beach Properties house description

A true beach front home tat others are compared to! The Lighthouse is a treat for everyone who stays here... ocean views from practically every room in the house. One step into the foyer and you are greeted by vaulted ceilings, high windows and expansive ocean views. Large ocean side decks run the length of the house.. perfect for gathering, eating or just lounging about. Open great room, dining room and kitchen create easy flow and multiple gathering spots for family and friends.. all with an ocean view. Great kitchen layout with center island for preparing large meals.

Please check our calendar as we strive to keep it up to date. We prefer a minimum of 4 night stays.

Wi-Fi Internet / Large TV's / Elevator / Powerful Blender

Because you can't spend all your time in the sand, the house is well appointed for apres beach leisure. First level master suite has king bed and private bath with shower and garden tub. Also downstairs is a twin bed guestroom that doubles as the kids media room and opens to the screened porch. Upstairs has 3 guest bedrooms and the guest bath. All have queen size beds and two with private ocean front decks. This is very clean and comfortable home!

Located 5 blocks from Folly's 'Center Street' it's an easy walk down the beach to the fishing pier and all the shops and restaurants, yet far enough from the bustle of the town. Off-street parking underneath the house is the perfect place to leave the your car and all your worries. Bring games, puzzles and cards but be prepared to do as little as possible!

              Location

              Front beach at Folly with a great sandy beach at all tides right at your doorstep.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1996

              About: As Charleston natives, building and owning this beach house was a life long dream and has been enjoyed immensely by our children, grandchildren and friends. Now it's time for us to travel in the summer and let others enjoy it as much as we have and still do!

              Why Other Folly Beach Properties:
              The 5th block was the perfect location for us at Folly. This stretch of beach is one of the best on the island. Not too far to walk to town, but just enough away to beat the crowds on weekends.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Large decks and screened porch are perfect in the afternoons when they are shaded from the sun but still catch the afternoon sea breeze. Outdoor showers and bathrooms are a perfect for rinsing off after the beach. We go from the beach to the showers to the deck for drying and keep all the sand out of the house.
