Private Homes house description

Older refurbished beach cottage- spotless clean - dog friendly - full-service rental.
8 year of rental and only exceptionally happy guests .75% of guests are repeat guests, some come 3 to 4 times a year so we must be doing something right . Come experience our little piece of heaven
This is one of the best locations on Folly. On the tidal marsh across the street from the beach. See a glimpse of the ocean from your front porch and living room. Get an amazing sunset view of the marshes from your king-size bed or back screened porch. Topping this off literally is the roof top deck with its panoramic views of the whole of Folly as well as the ocean.

This is the ideal vacation home for a smaller family or group. Perfect for those who do not like condominium living yet do not want the expense of one of the islands larger homes.

This refurbished interior is a delight. All stainless steel appliances in a wonderful, blue, distressed kitchen bring the sea right indoors as you cook. All new furnishings in the bright colors of the Caribbean put together by our favorite designer in the style of 'Main Cottage.' Blending this all together is a dog-friendly theme from our custom, dog-proof floor cloths to 'Blue Dog' prints mixed with antique black and white beach and fishing photos.

This home has a large, furnished, , front porch, a large living/dining area (with a fully-sprung, mattress on futon). A well-stocked, kitchen (everything new and bright and fun down to last teacup!). There is a queen-size bedroom and the king-size bedroom which has its own bath also has access to the rear screened porch and views of the marsh. The second bathroom also has laundry facilities tucked away behind doors.

This is a full-service rental, all high quality, 300-thread-count sheets, and luxurious towels are available for your use. We provide soap products and paper products unlike most of the other rentals on the island. We welcome your dogs if they are well behaved and you are not even charged a pet fee! You also have the free use of our 3 kayaks from our back yard dock. What more could you want from a holiday home?

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: My husband I were born in Ireland and are living in the US for almost 20 years. We are proud be be US citizens. Our 2 children were born in Cleveland and we now live in Augusta Georgia .Someday we intend to retire to Folly and become Folly beach bums with maybe the odd foray into Charleston for good food and entertainment.cant wait to get old!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We had a vacation home in a quaint village in Ireland with great atmosphere but close to a larger town .We spent 3 years searching every beach resort in Ga and SC and NC to find somewhere similar and finally there was Folly better than we even wished for.Why did it take us so long?

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Pet Friendly very clean house. All guests in 8 years are delighted with house over 75%of our guests are repeat over and over so it does not feel like a rental to either us or them.I hate to leave and its same thing all my guests tell me.Folly gets in your bones its impossible not to relax there and this house helps as so cute and pretty and has everything you need on hand .
