Private Homes apartment description
* Outdoor equipment is not included.*
This is a beautiful one bedroom, one bath downstairs apartment in a private residence, ten minutes from downtown Charleston and two miles from Folly Beach. The apartment was recently completely renovated. It would be comfortable for a couple or a family with as many as two small kids (or one big kid).
The apartment/house looks out onto a tidal creek that connects with the Folly River and eventually the ocean. It offers excellent kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding. Equipment is not included but can be rented from a local outfitter and launched off the dock. There are many species of birds, like the Blue Heron, Ibis, Egrets, Wood Storks and pelicans that make their home in the marsh just feet from the house. It is not uncommon to be visited by a family of dolphins that swim up the creek to feed.
This is a downstairs apartment below our family, and while we installed sound-barrier panels in the ceiling with the renovation, you can still hear some noises. Please keep in mind that we are not on Folly Island proper, but a peninsula minutes up the road.
We are in a quiet neighborhood where houses are close together. We cannot accommodate people coming to Folly to party, but those coming to relax and enjoy nature and Charleston. 2 adults maximum and absolutely no parties or noise after 10pm.
This apartment can be rented with the next door house if more space is needed. Listing #457128.

ReviewsWrite a review
Of all the places I've stayed on or near Folly, this is by far my MOST FAVORITE!! We came for a fall surf trip. Creekside was FANTASTIC! The owners are WONDERFUL!! The apartment is spotless and so cute and comfortable!! We loved the screened in porch and the dock too! We had a blast surfing but we also had lots of fun just being at the apartment. My children keep asking when we are going back! It was an ABSOLUTELY ENJOYABLE experience!!!

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Charleston/Folly Beach. We could not have been happier with Creekside! The owners are fabulous! They are very friendly, helpful and full of knowledge of the area. I traveled with my mother and 8 yr old son. The owners have young children who my son was able to swim with and he really enjoyed them. The apt was great! Under a 10 min drive to the beach and great restaurants. It was also a short drive to downtown Charleston. We could not have been happier and look forward to staying there again on our next trip to Charleston.

Will not find better hosts this side of Dixie. Property teems with wildlife....Incoming tide graced us with shore birds. Downtown is minutes away...Folly Beach is a breath away. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommend!

Great weekend retreat!! We brought our 2 kids to stay in this great, little apartment on the creek and we all LOVED it!! We really enjoyed bird watching and the kids caught crabs off the dock. Easy trip to the beach and Charleston. The apartment is VERY CLEAN, beachy, peaceful and has everything we needed. The owners are also very easy to work with. We would definitely recommend it and will return!!

Perfect Beach Getaway
Perfect Beach Getaway
This creekside Charleston getaway is in a perfect location--minutes away from Folly Beach and some great restaurants. It is also near Charleston's main attractions. The property is incredibly clean and has great amenities (laundry, kitchen, spacious bathroom, screened in porch). It's like home away from home.

Owner response: We're so happy you enjoyed your vacation! A note to prospective renters: We listed this apartment with VRBO in February 2013 but have been renting through word of mouth for about 2 years prior. When we listed with VRBO, we contacted past renters who were gracious enough to write some great reviews. Thank you to all our wonderful guests who helped us with this!
This little apartment is quite charming and cozy. There is a full kitchen with new, nice appliances and full bathroom that seems to have recently been updated. The house itself sits right on the bay and when I stayed, the owners took me paddle boarding. It was great fun. Folly beach is just a short drive away - I hightly recommend this cozy apartment for any folly beach weekend getaway.

Great Clean Apartment on the Water
Great Clean Apartment on the Water
A clean apartment with all of the amenities and great caretakers. The backyard dock allows easy access to the water for kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding. There's a sandbox and playground in back for kids. It's just a 5-minute drive from Folly Beach, where there's a nice surf break and fun nightlife. (I liked the area so much I moved here permanently.)

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We moved here in 2009 so that we could raise our kids by the water and beach and be surrounded by nature. We quickly discovered how many friends we had once we lived by the beach. We're glad to have this great apartment to offer to our friends and family and the occasional renter.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Enjoy nature in your own backyard from the private dock while being only a short drive to the perfect little beach town of Folly Beach and Historic Downtown Charleston. We are quite kid friendly.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Bird watching- large Blue Herons, Ibis and Egrets perch on our dock. Nature viewing - dolphins often visit within arm's reach. Crabbing, kayaking, stand up paddling, creek swimming and fishing off the private dock (equipment must be rented). Surfboard and standup paddleboard rental can be arranged. Piggly Wiggly grocery store is located across Folly Road from our neighborhood. This is a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Folly Beach in the summertime. It's very easy to get to downtown Charleston as well.
