Renovated mid-century bungalow with all-new amenities
A taste of 1950s Folly Beach awaits in this charming beach cottage, newly renovated in mid-century style to recall an era when greasers danced with girls in poodle skirts on Folly Pier and you parked your “hot rod” right on the beach.
This 1950s two-bedroom, two-bath cottage is just three short blocks from the ocean, one block from busy Center Street and one block from Folly's famous Bert's Market. Completely renovated, it features an all new, fully stocked kitchen with Whirlpool appliances and granite counters, spacious marble walk-in showers, vaulted ceilings paneled in repurposed wood, and smooth, sanded concrete floors that are cool on bare feet and pet friendly, too. New, comfortable furniture includes an “L”-shaped, custom leather sofa that opens out into full size bed and banquette dining. Bedrooms feature super-comfy king-sized beds. Hotel-style amenities include bedside sconces and 100 percent cotton linens. A few 1950s vintage pieces and one-of-a-kind artwork amp up the fun.
Relax on the outdoor patio on the cushioned sofa or eat alfresco under the umbrella overlooking the newly landscaped yard, shaded by what is possibly the largest crape myrtle on the island. There's an outdoor grill and a roomy fenced lot, so bring your furry friends —Folly Beach is a dog's delight! The sleek, enclosed outdoor rain shower promises to be your fave spot for rinsing off after a day at the beach.
When you're ready to head to the beach, just grab the beach cart and chairs. The beach access path at this location is flat, making is easier for kids and older adults to get to the surf. It's also a short walk to Folly Beach's many eclectic restaurants, lounges, nightlife and unique shops, also a short walk away are Folly River Park and Folly Pier, where you can fish, crab, catch a meal or shag-dance with locals.
Parking for up to three cars in the driveway is included.
About the area:
Southern Living has called Folly Beach “the perfect beach town.” Laid-back and casual, with a hippie surfer dude vibe, Folly Beach is a real American beach town that's home to both locals and visitors. From miles of beach and surfing the Washout—where local teens have been “hanging 10” for decades—to dining at locally owned eateries, kayaking island waterways, biking along the shoreline, fishing from or strolling the Folly Pier (the second longest on the Atlantic) or shopping at classic surf shops and unique boutiques, there's something for everyone here. No visit to Folly is complete without a stop at the longstanding Bert's Market, where the slogan is: “We may doze, but we never close.” Where else can you get surfboard wax, boiled peanuts, beer, organic smoothies and a turkey apple panini in the middle of the night? It's classic Folly Beach.
You'll share the island with dolphins, loggerhead turtles, bald eagles, an assortment of sea birds and even a few endangered species. You might even get inspired, as George Gershwin did: he wrote the musical Porgy and Bess while staying on Arctic Avenue.
Come to this real beach town for a Folly good time!
