                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We bought The Loafer in 2003. We have always rented it long term and have never been able to stay in it. When the lease came up for renewal this year, we decided to rent short term so we too could enjoy life at Folly! So we painted, did some sprucing up, furnished it and have an adorable beach cottage that we look forward to spending time in and hope to share with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  The Loafer is a short walk from Center Street. It is 3 blocks from The Washout (great waves, surfer's paradise). And best of all, right across the street from the beach access.
