This cozy flat located in the heart of downtown Folly Beach, South Carolina is perfect for an inexpensive long weekend or weekly getaway with a small family or group of friends (sleeps 4 Adults in 2 Queen beds). You don’t need to drive anywhere since you can stroll to the Pavillion pier, beach, shops, eclectic grocery store, restaurants and nightlife. If it weren’t for the designated parking spot, you might forget where you parked.
Inside is a fully equipped kitchen, complete with a full size fridge, stove and dishwasher; bar height wood dining table/chairs and wall-mounted 37” flat screen cable TV (with DVD) visible from thru-out LR and kitchen. The oversized bedroom has two queen size beds, wall-mounted 32” cable TV and plenty of room for your belongings. WIFI is included as well.
This condo was completely renovated last spring. Warm ambiance created by European “hand scraped” antique style flooring and eclectic international art impart the holiday feeling you are looking for. A renovated bath sporting all new Italian style tile, new pedestal sink, toilet and cabinet, and fantastic water pressure for those post-beach showers.
Linens and towels are provided, and so are beach chairs, but don’t forget your beach towels.
The best of what Folly has to offer beckons at your doorstep. Whether it’s lounging on the beach, walking, fishing or crabbing from the pier, kayaking with dolphins in the nearby tidal river (check out Flipper Finders for kayak rentals and guided tours), boogie boarding or paddle boarding, or just browsing the colorful shops and people watching at your choice of outdoor restaurants and watering holes, you are never far from home.
In 17 minutes you can be downtown and take a carriage ride, shop the famous covered outdoor market (3-4 blocks worth !), and try the famous cuisine that helped make Charleston Conde Nast 'Traveler' magazine's No 1 city to visit IN THE WORLD !
You can eat out or stay in; the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook meals at home.
Restaurants to fit every taste and style are at your fingertips, ranging from the elegant Blu at the Tides overlooking the Atlantic (tapas along with unusual variety of entrees), myriad seafood and crab houses, upscale winebars, restaurant bars with live music, roofbars, Mexican, sushi, Thai—you name it-- all are within a couple of blocks from your nest.

Year Purchased: 2012
About: We live in downtown Charleston in an historical house (since 2006) and we both spent a decade or more in the Washington DC area before moving to Charleston. Aydin was born in Turkey but came to the US in 1969 for a career as a rocket scientist, and I am a retired lawyer and legal headhunter.
We are both thrilled to have discovered the best place on earth for our permanent home, here in the Charelston area, in large part because of the fabulous beach and tidal creek opportunities here at Folly Beach.
We enjoy early morning kayaking in the Folly River where dolphins are regularly found at close range and the ocean, as well as walking miles on the beach and floating in the warm water, surf fishing and people watching.
In 2012 we just fell in love with our new beach retreat. We had a ball doing virtually a complete floor to ceiling renovation (new Euro-style floors, ceiling fans, complex molding, countertops, sinks, bath fixtures, walk-in closet etc). We loved staying in the apt ourselves and look forward to enjoying it again when it's free, though it was rented from the first day we offered it, so looks like we may have to wait for off-off season !
We welcome you to share our fun at Folly.
Why Other Folly Beach Properties: There are few places ANYWHERE where you can walk 200 yards to a wide sandy beach with warm water AND be in the middle of the action with walking access to dozens of restaurants, trendy and funky shopping, watering holes and live music, all without getting into a car ! And only a few blocks away the Folly River with its tidal wildlife and dolphin watching opportunities. Best of all the worlds !
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Equal access to beaches, wildlife, shopping, dining/imbibing spots --ON FOOT!! And 15-20 minutes from historic and happening Charleston -- No 1 travel destination world-wide in 2013 (Conde Naste Traveler magazine) !
