  • Great Folly Cottage

    "SunLove was the perfect place for us and our dogs to go on vacation! The Owner was amazing! The house was more than we expected. The kitchen was completely filled with everything you could ever need to cook with. The bedrooms were great and there are two decent bathrooms. The fenced back yard was perfect for our dogs! The houses location is so close to everything in town as well!! Great place to stay!!"

  • Beach town family fun and relaxation

    "My favorite part of renting this funky little cottage was the convenient location: a great corner spot, yet private with beautiful trees and ivy surrounding the festive porch. I loved waking to Bert's and the ocean with such ease. I soaked in all the gems of Folly. My two year old loved the house and it was very baby friendly. We had such a great time escaping to the beach from the mountains, and even saw dolphins on our last morning. We would love to stay here again! Ps, a soak in the claw foot tub was great after a long day!"

  • Great location!

    "We just returned from a great week at Folly Beach with our immediate family. The house is a short walk to the beach. It's far enough from the pier so it's not too crowded. They are doing grading on the beach and it turned up a lot of rocks. The walk to town is only 3 blocks. The house is nice and floor plan is good. All bedrooms have large bathrooms. It sleeps 4 couples plus 2-6 children in single beds. View from 3rd floor is awesome but no elevator so would not recommend for elderly. The kitchen is great with a huge island and well stocked. Loved the screened porch with outdoor shower. TV in living room was good but a little difficult to use. Our sons had no problems with it. The house is nice but the decor is basic. Our only complaint was with mattresses and linens. We all thought the mattresses were below average in comfort. The linens provided by the service were also below average. Bring paper products, soap, etc. The property manager was very accommodating."

  • Charming bungalow!

    "We've been vacationing on Folly for nearly 10 years with our 2 dogs and this was our second year in a row staying at the this classic FB bungalow. It really has everything you need and nothing you don't. It's small (2 bedrooms) but very comfortable and well-appointed. The view of the Folly river and surrounding low country from the screened-in back porch is spectacular and the hammock is great for afternoon naps. It also has a great fenced-in and spacious back yard which is perfect for pets and the outside shower (hot & cold) is always nice after a day at the beach. A large lot with lots of mature live oaks and landscaping add to the character of the house and helps to keep it shaded and cool during the day. In addition the beach is a very short walk (approx 200yds) from the front door. Low country view, close beach proximity, pet friendly, well-appointed, and quiet. Renters for the next few months should take note that the lot next door has 2 houses being built which brings the usual construction noise but nothing too bad. Can't wait to come back next year!"

Folly Beach Travel Tips

Just an easy 15 miles from downtown Charleston is the lovely, laid-back little town of Folly Beach, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Folly River.

Affectionately known as the "edge of America" by locals, there's plenty of sandy shores to enjoy here as you soak up the warmth of the sun and relax as the sound of the ocean washes over you. Fishing is also a great pastime here, and a perfect opportunity to catch a fresh meal. But if you'd prefer somebody else to do the dinner prep, head to one of Folly Beach's amazing restaurants where you're sure to savor every bite. You may even get treated to some live music so you can kick off your shoes and cut a rug on the dance floor!

The natural sights here are second to none, from postcard-worthy sunrises and sunsets to gorgeous water views, and since you're so close to the water, you just might catch a glimpse of the wildlife including dolphins, bald eagles, loggerhead turtles, sea birds and more.

There's also a rich history to be explored throughout the area. As you venture through Folly Beach, you'll be thrilled by the local charm found around every corner.

Things to Do in Folly Beach

- Folly Fishing Pier: Whether you do it for fun or for the thrill of catching your dinner to cook up at night, saltwater fishing in Folly Beach is a favorite hobby. If it's one of yours, definitely plan to head to Folly Fishing Pier where you can choose your favorite lure, cast a line and wait for a bite. It's sure to be a relaxing experience made even better as you take in the stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and all that surrounds you. As you wait for a fish to grab your line, you can do some bird watching, and when you need to stretch your legs, take a stroll along the pier. The pier stands 25 feet wide and 23 feet above sea level, so there's plenty of space for everyone - in fact, it's the second longest pier on the East Coast! If you don't own a fishing rod, have no fear - you can rent one. The pier also provides beach access and showers to get all that sand off afterward.

- Folly Beach Fine Arts Center: If you appreciate seeing live entertainment, head to the Folly Beach Fine Arts Center for a show. The center is home to The Actor's Theatre, so after a fun-filled day exploring the town, treat yourself to a night out. Hit a local restaurant for a delicious meal then take in a show!

- Folly Beach Massage: When you're on vacation, relaxation is usually at the top of the list of things to do. For the ultimate in tension release to let all that stress just melt away, book an appointment at Folly Beach Massage. They offer a variety of services, including Swedish, deep tissue and sports massages, to work out your kinks and knots and soothe sore muscles. You're sure to leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

- Learn to surf: Do you love surfing or have always wanted to try the sport? Folly Beach is one of the best spots for surfing on the East Coast. So if it's always been on your bucket list, now's the perfect time to take some surfing lessons! Greg Elliott Surf is a terrific option for lessons. Here you can learn how to paddle out, stand up and hang ten as you ride the waves. If you prefer to watch the action, Folly Beach is also home to a variety of surfing contests each year.

Dining in Folly Beach

- BLU Bar and Restaurant: If you're looking for a favorite dining spot among locals and visitors alike, head to BLU. You'll be treated to oceanside dining, so you can watch the waves lap against the shore as you enjoy your meal of shrimp and grits, grouper, bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin or seafood gumbo. Be sure to save room for creme brulee, bread pudding or strawberry short cake! The food here is also based on sustainability with freshly caught fish, local ingredients and flavors from the region. BLU is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it will be incredibly romantic to go in the evening and eat while watching the sunset!

- Lost Dog Cafe: For a laid-back dining experience, head to Lost Dog Cafe, where you can indulge in breakfast all day long! Favorites here include huevos rancheros, biscuits and gravy, and the breakfast burrito. It's a great place to spend some time relaxing with good company as you dine and talk about your favorite parts of your trip to Folly Beach or plan the day's activities.
