Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

We built this home because we love Folly Beach. We make this home available to our friends so they can have the same opportunity to enjoy a little slice of heaven. And, we love having a second home just minutes from downtown Charleston with all the restaurants and attractions. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do. It is truly unique. I am sure that you will see that we really try our best to maintain our home in first class condition. Enjoy!

A Folly Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated a very special Christmas at Folly Beach this year. Our stay was harmonious and peaceful in large part due to the spaciousness and comfort of this lovely, well cared for home. There was no fighting over who would get the good bedroom because all bedrooms face the ocean and all of them were elegant and comfortable with good lighting and their own TVs. Not only is the house tastefully decorated but it is also well designed for multiple vacationers: you cannot hear what others are doing room to room or floor to floor so the early risers and the night owls did not bother those who liked to sleep late or go to bed early. In addition, there are heat and AC controls on each floor for individual's varying temperature needs. The kitchen was well equipped for all the cooking and baking we did throughout the week. Each time I had a question about how something worked I would look around and find instructions posted nearby. We had excellent weather and spent a great deal of time walking on the beach or sitting in one of the many rocking chairs provided on each of the decks. My 82 year old mother wanted to make sure that I included how much she loved the three big chairs in the living room, it was her first time ever sitting in a barcalounger and she was astonished by how comfy they were. My only request for our return next year is that internet access be available throughout the house rather than just on the first floor. I would definitely recommend this property to others. It is close enough to town that you could easily walk there and back if needed. Thank you for sharing this ideal vacation property.

Owner's Response: This has got to be the greatest compliment ever for our beach home. You took a lot of your valuable time to do this and my wife and I just want to thank you so much. You noticed that we work very hard to provide a clean, comfortable, well equipped accommodation for our guests. After all, we also stay there. You may not know that we are there at each check-out with our own cleaning crew, and I personally either make or supervise all repairs as needed. I also have the best management company on Folly Beach. Jillian is my very professional property manager who constantly strives to ensure a pleasant guest experience while acting as “The Concierge.” This is a great way to start the New Year….Happy New Year and I hope to see you next year. Eddie Taylor, owner PS: Not sure about the wireless internet issue but I will address it today. I usually operate my laptop on the first floor, and I have not been told about low or no signal on other floors. The “cable guy” just recently relocated the router, though….....?#?

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing my home. You guys did a good job tidying-up, so do come again. You should have received that special cooking pan by now that you left behind. It was nice to meet you and best of luck, Eddie.

The Suite Lifel

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family (9) who came to Charleston for the first time to see our son during his first year at The Citadel. We loved this home, it is truly built for the ultimate vacation adventure. We were able to find spread out and everyone was able to have a great time, plus the kitchen allowed us to cook some "home-cooked" meals. It was like having our own private island getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice comments. My wife and I are delighted that you had a nice time and that our home added to the enjoyment. Please let us know if we can help you in the future. Eddie Taylor PS: You are another one of our "gold star" guests for leaving our home in very good condition. Thanks!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my in-laws' 50th anniversary by gathering all the children, grandchildren and the new great-granddaughter at the house. It was a wonderful week. Everything was as advertised, if not better. I would absolutely recommend Folly Beach and this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, laid back place to stay. Thank you for your hospitality and I look forward to returning for another stay!

Please come again, Eddie

Nice family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We met up with all of our children and grandchildren for a family vacation. The home was more beautiful than we expected! The pictures do not do justice! Great floor plan and decorating. Plenty of room for everyone not to feel crowded. The owner was very willing to help us if we had any problems, thanks Eddie! The weather was not friendly for our visit but the home exceeded our expectations. We cannot wait to attempt another visit to Folly Beach and will only hope this home is available when we return. Everyone loved that every bedroom had a ocean view. Plus it is always fun to stay at the prettiest house on the beach!!

Owner's Response: I want everyone to know that you and Mark and the entire family are the greatest. I feel so lucky that you stayed at my house. The next time you come you will see the new modem I installed the very afternoon you left just to ensure continued internet service. Thank you so much for the kind words. And, I hope your son got to see The Yorktown and The Citadel. The Ballenger family is always welcome at Eddie’s Jeddy. Have a safe and prosperous year…looking forward to seeing you next year, Eddie.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. The pictures barely do it justice. It is well maintained and furnished it a way that makes you feel comfortable. There are so many great places for the family to gather: the beautiful porches, the family room and the wonderful game room on the 3rd floor. It's close enough that you can walk to town and the pier but far enough away that you feel that you're the only one on the beach. I highly recommend this home - one of my most relaxing vacations ever! We had such a great time that we are now making this our annual family gathering place. It will put a smile on your face!
