Quiet Beach House near Folly Beach
This home sits in a quiet residential neighborhood 1.9 miles from Folly Beach. It is within walking distance of a major grocery store, Chinese Restaurant, and fresh local seafood. After a leisurely 20 minute bike ride along the marsh, you'll have arrived at the ocean. Restaurants, coffee shops, surf shops, Fishing Pier, and farmer's market are among a few of the things you'll discover in Folly.
The Ship Shape has creative touches throughout. You'll be sure to love the extensive tile work, natural lighting, large soaking tubs, and outdoor shower located within a flower garden. The beds are comfy, the accommodations are numerous, and the kitchen is equipped to handle home cooked meals.
The surrounding neighborhood is charming and quiet. The location is ideal because it's away from the hustle and bustle of tourists and crowded streets. If you need a reprieve from the sun and sand, Charleston is just 10 miles down the road. While sitting on the front porch, you'll likely see locals walking the neighboring streets down to the marsh, past the historic cemetery, and beyond!

About Ruth Faure
I'm a nearby resident who is fortunate enough to live and work in the community. I'm happy to help create this comfortable home (Ship Shape) near the ocean. I hope you'll love the place and the area as much as I do.
Ruth Faure purchased this House in 2016
Why Ruth Faure chose Charleston
This home is special to me because it's tucked away in an active neighborhood. The people of this community value the land and it's residents. 1.9 miles to the ocean or 10 miles to Charleston. Take your pick?

Really enjoyed this home. As advertised is homey and comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood and a short 2m drive to folly beach and less than 10m to historic downtown Charleston. One caveat: the bike ride to folly beach is not only along the marsh but along a 4 lane highway ( rt 171) 55 MPH so recommend for experienced cyclists. There is a bike lane for most of the ride. A convenient shopping center is across rt171. A 5 minute walk but because of highway traffic recommend driving there if after dark.
Enjoyed our eight night stay at Ship Shape
The wife and I enjoyed our stay at Ship Shape while we took trips to Folly Beach and downtown Charleston for the historic walk and historic homes tour. Convenient Harris Teeter located across Folly Road from the Ship Shape. Very clean inside, nice wood and tile floors and tile showers. Recommendation we would make would be better lighting in kitchen and TV living area......may be one of the light bulbs were out.
Enjoyed the stay. Nice accommodations. The only problem we had was there were not enough wash cloths for us. I did contact the local contact who was very nice and accommodating.
Perfect for our long weekend in Charleston
Close to the beach and close to downtown. We spent all of our day at the beach or downtown. Our evenings were at the house cooking diner and playing games with our adult kids. The house is small- but great if you’d like to spend your day finding adventures.
Perfect for our family
The house was perfect for our needs, and had pretty much everything we needed for our stay.
Comfortable and Quiet
This little home is located away from the hustle and bustle, but it’s an easy drive into Charleston. The beds are very comfy and we found it to be super clean. It’s obvious it’s still a bit of a work in progress, and as someone else pointed out the layout of the house is a little strange. But we enjoyed our stay.
