Private Homes house description


Pet friendly, luxury, extreme cleanliness all combined! Sleeps 10 max (no exceptions)
Please check calendar for availability as we do keep very booked with lots of repeat guests.
From the moment you enter the giant doors of this custom, 3000+squarefoot home into the two-story foyer you will be transported into another world. Mediterranean-style architecture mixed with comfortable high-end furniture and appliances exceed all standards of holiday rentals.

This is a full-service rental. You just need to pack your personal belongs. Unlike most other rentals we supply all the rest at no extra cost to you. High speed internet and free long distance phone .Most of all you will feel pampered by the high-quality designer linens and towels as well as the quality soap products just like a five-star hotel.

This home is ideally situated 3 rows from the ocean with grassy path right in front of the house ,making the beach just 2 minutes walk away.Best of all you are just two blocks to Center Street Folly with its quaint stores, coffee shops, ice-cream parlors, and numerous restaurants, so there is no need to take the car when casually stepping out at night or walking the pier.

The home consists 4-5 bedrooms 3.5 baths (sleeps 10) and a spectacular hallway and formal living room and large dining and living areas off the kitchen amazing, state-of-the-art, 'to die for' kitchen with tons of granite and professional stove,with double ovens as well as the 2 microwaves and large, side-by-side refrigerator .The kitchen is open to the family room/tv room ,dining room as well as the screened porch which is the most popular space in the house with our guests as it has conformable chairs for all as well as a secondary dining table and where you will find yourself surrounded by tropical trees and the singing of birds mixed in with the sound of the ocean.
The living room to the front of the house can be used as an overflow living space/tv room or 5th bedroom as it has a day bed and pull out trundle as well as the sofa and love-seat

Also downstairs is the fourth bedroom with queen 4 poster-bed.Here there is a full bath as well as small kitchen area and T.V This has a door to the screened porch so this area is a beautiful unit within itself if someone wants more peace and quiet.

Upstairs there are 3 more bedrooms.The Master bedroom is huge and opulent having a king size bed and plenty of extra space .The spa like bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. There are two further queen bedrooms upstairs sharing a Jack-and-Jill, beautifully tiled bathroom. The larger of these bedrooms has a great ocean view from the queen-size bed ideal for lazy days. There are TV'S .in 2 of these bedrooms ,one left without on request so Kids don't stay awake all night watching!

The most spectacular aspect of this home is the ocean-side deck, perfect for days you want to lounge and
sun without being at the beach, or for catching the cool night breezes and ocean sounds as you dine alfresco or gather with friends.
Underneath the home is a great grilling area (gas)and outdoor shower as well as storage area for the sun chairs we provide.There is also a 3 car enclosed garage as well as lots of space for parking more cars in the driveway.

This home is for the discerning renter, a family or group who appreciate such luxury yet want the casual fun feel of Folly, mixed with the quick commute to Charleston, and all this for 1000s less similar luxury elsewhere. With all we have to offer, as well as making it available to owners of mature well-behaved dogs(at no extra cost), we have had 8 wonderful fully booked out years with lots of very happy guests, many of them repeat guests .Please check the availability calendar which we always keep up to date If we are unavailable we would love to have you visit another time.

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.

                      Car: Recommended

                      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

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!
