                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About: My husband and I built this home in 1991 after moving to the Low Country from Columbia, S. C. After many years of looking for the right property, we found paradise. Our desire was to raise our 2 daughters in a safe place while enjoying the beach and all of the fun things Folly has to do. Living on the water and being outdoors allowed our girls to grow up learning how to crab, fish, shrimp and an all around appreciation of the water and all of the beauty this home has to offer. They are pretty much grown and out of the house. Now, I am in that ''sizing down mode' and it's time to let others enjoy my home located in such a beautiful place.

                  Why Private Homes:
                  This is not your typical vacation rental. While you will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay, I have maintained the 'feel at home' ambiance in this warm and inviting house. You will find many details tended to to make your stay enjoyable.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You can swing in the hammock or sunbath on the private dock while enjoying all of he river activities, views and outrageous sunsets. You'll have to decide...beach today or hanging on the river. Sometimes, I find that a very tough decision and feel so fortunate to have it!
