Folly Beach is like no other place. Once the haunt of hippies and dropouts, it has retained its quaint beach-side atmosphere. When other communities were being developed out of existence and their personality, Folly remained unchanged. Now it is one of the most desired communities South Carolina as quietly over the past few years it has been discovered. This means all the more amenities for you while keeping all the charm.

Folly Beach is a very unique area.I have been renting my 2 homes here for 10 years and it has been 'discovered'by more and more people who fall in love with its old fashioned charm,eclectic feel yet it is full of all necessary amenities needed for a great holiday while being only 15 minutes from Charleston and all it has to offer also.There are almost no islands like it left in the USA.It feel like going back in time to an old fashioned beach resort as it has been untouched by development.However in recent years all the restaurants and bars and parks and amenities have all been upgraded so you get the old-fashioned feel mixed with great quality service and style. There is so much to do on Folly and there are more things added every year. Kayaking,boat-trips for sightseeing or deep sea fishing,pier fishing, you can hire bikes,jet skis or golf carts and lots of other things.We have a few Churches and a library for our longer term rentals in winter and convenience store as well as a great fish store,ie you can come to Folly and never leave the island if you wish as it has everything complete.
Being the closest island to Charleston means you can combine a beach vacation with all that Charleston has to offer: sightseeing,shopping ,antiquing ,dining ,etc Because of all this Folly is getting more and more popular and does get booked out earlier than other islands around so do book early so as not to be disappointed.About 50% of our bookings are from repeat guests so it not only tells you something about our home but about Folly also.If you come once you just have to keep coming back
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I were both born in Ireland but have lived in the US for 20 years and are proud American citizens.We live full time in Augusta Ga where he is Dean of the Medical School .We have 2 teen boys who love to bring their friends to Folly as well as 2 Great Danes who love the beach. We love to relax and hang out in Folly and Charleston where time just expands and you can never tire of going back to again and again.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We were looking for somewhere we could have for a vacation home for now ,and later as a place to retire.Folly has it all ,its relaxing without being too quiet,has the beach but so much more within short distance that you could never get bored .It has all the charms of Charleston within 10 min.Its old-fashioned eclectic feel reminded us of the seaside village in Ireland where we had a home previosly.It had everything we were looking for and more.It has a real vacation feel to it yet is a living suburb of Charleston open year round.It is impossible not to relax in Folly.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home was built in 2000 by a builder as his main home so he put in a standard unlike anything else at the beach. Its also built in such a way as to give everyone staying space and privacy so everyone staying here has a great time together and never feel on top of each other.Its just 2 minutes to the beach and 2 min to center street Folly yet on a amazingly quiet street so little traffic.We are surrounded by owner occupied homes so its incredible quiet.When you are in the screened porch all you hear is the sound of birds singing from the empty lot next door and sound of waves crashing from the ocean. After all these years we still feel it a treat to go there ourselves. We have a great team of cleaning staff and handymen so we do not have to spend our own vacations doing the work to keep the house in tip top shape as we did the first year we owned it ,so we get to be guest and enjoy Folly too!
