This charming beach cottage appeals to single travelers and couples seeking a small, but unique, vacation-home-away-from-home. It offers the best of both worlds: just one block from shops, restaurants and 'downtown' Folly Beach's night life...yet it's tucked away on a shady street lined with palm, live oak and magnolia trees. Enter your own little world behind the green garden gate to find a charming walkway with a patio garden on one side and the entrance to Little Turtle Guest Cottage on the other. Next door is 'Big Turtle Cottage', so you're near a wonderful cottage compound, should you ever decide to include others and have a family or friends reunion.
Inside Little Turtle Guest Cottage you'll find a comfortable home for single travelers or couples who appreciate the adventure that a small but romantic vacation setting can offer. Many honeymooners and couples celebrate their anniversaries here. It's also great for a mother/daughter retreat and many writers have found it to be a productive and beautiful place to write. We have many guests who return year after year.
This cottage is new but designed to fit the nearby 'vintage 1940's cottage.' of the main cottage next door (Big Turtle Cottage where, yes, Elvis Presley once ate barbecue). It has ceramic tile throughout and a comfortable built-in, wrap-around, sitting area for reading, lounging and watching tv. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator,electric stove with oven, toaster oven, microwave, a coffee pot and a window over the sink that looks out into your garden. The bathroom has a ceramic tile shower. A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft and a comfy queen-size mattress on a platform bed.
Just outside your cottage is a walled-garden patio complete with 2 lounge chairs for sipping your mint juleps (or your michelob), reading, or just looking up at the stars. And after a day spent at the beach, there's nothing better than an outdoor hot/cold shower where you can 'shower with the mermaids'.
Situated on Folly Beach, a classic 'American Beach Town,' this cottage is small but truly unique. Some would say 'enchanted'.

This is a very sweet, romantic, charming but small cottage. On the ground floor: a kitchen area with fridge, electric range with oven, microwave, and coffee pot...a full sized ceramic tile bath with shower...a comfortable lounging area with built-in sofas; cafe table and chairs; TV/VCR. A spiral staircase leads to a sleeping loft with a queen sized bed/mattress. Note that it is not handicapped accessible because of the spiral staircase. It opens onto its own private patio with two lounge chairs and an outdoor hot/cold shower. After a great day at the beach, pour yourself a cold drink and shower in the fresh air under a beautiful blue sky. This is a remarkably peaceful place for those seeking quiet at the beach yet with convenience to both the ocean and the island's 'downtown' scene....moreless

Folly Beach is a completely unique place. It's more like an old-fashioned American beach town than anywhere on the East Coast of the U.S. While it is undergoing a surge in popularity, it still has many humble, tumbled-down beach cottages right next to large 'mega-beach mansions'. The downtown area has comfortable cafes and bar and the locals are welcoming and just colorful enough to make it interesting. The 'Enchanted Beach Cottage' on this site is a guest house on a site with a beautifully restored 1940 vintage cottage. It is strategically located to give you the best of all worlds: on a street shaded by palm trees and ancient live oaks but close to the ocean and to the heart of town.
