Property description

Classic Folly Beach Cottage with a Caribbean twist, steps from the beach and Center Street shops, the pier, restaurants and nightlife. There is a wide variety of casual dining as well as world famous McKevlin's Surf Shop two blocks away. Berts Food Market, a very well stocked local institution is a two block walk. Updated, dog friendly, full service rental. Just bring your flip-flops, swim suits, surf boards and fishing gear. The Folly Beach Boat Landing is very close so bring your boat! The Surf Cottage is situated on a corner lot with privacy fence, palmetto and oak trees plus a back patio complete with racks for your boards. The yard is completely enclosed and great for kids. There is a well screened outdoor shower with hot and cold water to rinse off after a long day at the beach. The beach access is five minutes away and opens onto a wide stretch of freshly renourished beach.

Folly Beach is a barrier island, six miles long and the closest beach to historic Charleston, South Carolina, 15 minutes via the Connector. Folly Beach offers historical and cultural sites; a maritime forest; Morris Island Lighthouse; endangered species of birds; and southern hospitality.

The Cottage consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, dining area and kitchen with laundry facilities. The kitchen features new appliances, slate floor, halogen lighting and is fully outfitted for cooking. The cottage has a comfortable screened porch accessed by french doors from both bedrooms for enjoying morning coffee or cocktails after a long day of sunning, surfing or fishing. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and the second bedroom a king size bed, both fitted with 100% cotton linens, quilts, etc. The living room and second bedroom have TV/DVD's.

The setting is a classic Folly Beach street with a canopy of live oak trees, signature eclectic architecture, native plants and the sounds of the ocean all there. Well behaved, housebroken dogs on flea control are welcome with an additional pet fee of $75.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We live in downtown Charleston and getaway to Folly Beach to enjoy the river, ocean, great seafood and relaxed, signature attitude of the island. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall are all great times to be there. Folly is the Edge of America...

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Our preference was for a single family home rather than a condominium to assure more privacy, quiet and ease of parking. We selected this location for the proximity to Center Street, the boat landing and the Beach. Island amenities are closeby but the street is quiet and has a great neighborhood feel with large trees. We also wanted a home suitable for year round use. When you are ready to take a break from beach activities, The Surf Cottage is an easy 15 minute drive from Historic Charleston, which offers galleries, museums, world class shopping and dining as well as the largest concentration of preserved and restored historic homes in the United States.
