Property description

The Island Girl' is a clean, Sweet Ole Cottage which has entertained happy folks for years and enjoyed some recent renovations and upgrades over the 2014, including a BRAND NEW tiled bathroom!

The guests who have stayed with her, loved her so much, they say they wish they could stay forever. Pack a bag, throw in some flip flops, a swim suit and leave your worries behind at the Island Girl!

Located JUST ACROSS THE STREET from the BEACH (How Sweet is That?) and only two blocks from the Famous Bert's Market where you can buy anything from ice, to batteries, to organic vegetables, sushi and craft beer, the Island Girl is your key to relaxation. On the first floor, you have plenty of space to relax in the large family room, enjoy a family meal in the dining area or just relax on the screened-in porch while drinking your morning coffee. Upstairs, there are 3 nicely sized bedrooms, a full bath and entry to the sun porch which looks over the palms. Need some time away from the sun? No problem! Our backyard is nicely shaded from all of the beautiful, mature palm trees and there is even an outdoor shower to wash off the sand from your day at the beach.

At Folly Beach, you will discover the beauty and diversity of our quaint beach town! Referred to as the 'Edge of America', the town of Folly is very casual, and the locals are friendly. You will enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets, rich history, good food, expansive beaches, and a town center pier for fishing and sightseeing. Within steps of each other on Center Street, you'll find many restaurants, from upscale to the cool dive. Seafood is always fresh and available everywhere; but no fear, for the non-connoisseur there are taco shops and burger bars. Cool shops abound. And, surfing is big here, so bring your board or sign up for a lesson.

A clean and beautiful beach, there is plenty to do at Folly with wonderful swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, people watching, finding seashells, running and biking on the beach, and just doing what you want to do. Need to work off some energy after lounging at the beach? Just two blocks away is a wonderful Public Playground ,Tennis and Basketball Court.

And, if too sunburned, the charming and historic Charleston is just a short drive away. There you can enjoy some of the best restaurants on the East coast, explore the French Market, picnic at Waterfront or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the Holy City. Do some shopping on King Street, stroll through one of our beautiful museums, take a sunset cruise through the harbor or stop by one of the city's hot spots to people watch (including celebrities!)

Looking for a special or romantic weekend getaway and would like to customize your stay? No problem! We would be happy to have a chilled bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, chocolate dipped strawberries or whatever you wish, waiting for you when you arrive. Give us a call and we would be happy to make the arrangements!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I relocated to Charleston from the northeast because of our love of Charleston's beautiful beaches, mainly Folly, and to enjoy the relaxing pace that Charlestonians live. This area is a fabulous place to live and we love the ability to go to the beach any time of the year. After escaping the rat race of New England, we find walking the beach is a wonderful way to clear our head, unwind and relax. There is something about - at least for us - finding a sand dollar nestled in the sand, a new turtle nest, or seeing dolphins playing in the water down by the light house. And, while our son, who is part owner, now lives in New Orleans as a manager of a hostel, our pure enjoyment is watching him and his girlfriend relax and enjoy the same things we fell in love with Folly, when they come to visit. And, we love being able to share that feeling with you! We hope you come back for years to come. But, if you ever find you would like to relocate here permanently, please let me know and I would be happy to help you find your new home.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We are just a quick walk across the street to the ocean! And, just a short 4-block walk to the center of town - easy enough to walk to but yet far enough away to get away from the hustle and bustle of night life and just enjoy the sound of the waves at night. Folly now has many restaurants and entertainment that we equally enjoy. But some of my favorite times are in the water. Swimming, Fishing the Surf, riding the waves, Fishing from the pier, or boating the Folly River while skiing, tubing and of course, fishing and shrimping. The Low country is abundant in crabs, shrimp and fish. The many local piers make it easy and fun to catch your own meal, or if you do not get a nibble, Crosby's seafood is just up the road with some of the best local seafood around for you to take home and prepare. Come on Down to the Low Country and experience the Edge of America ( Folly Beach) 1st hand. You won't be disappointed.
