About John Manzi

This property has been a vacation rental managed by Christine Wilkerson and has had excellent reviews for several years ( see VRBO property number 466100 for reviews). While I am the new owner and will be booking the rentals, Christine will still be managing the condo and will be your contact person while u stay with us. I am a retired marine biologist and a long time a Folly Beach resident. I also own a beautiful two BR condo in the best location in downtown Charleston so if you would rather stay in town rather than the beach take a look at VRBO property # 954033

John Manzi purchased this condo in 2001

Why John Manzi chose Folly Beach

This is the premier condo unit in the building. On the top floor this riverside corner condo commands the best views and is one of the quietest in the building. It also has two understory parking spaces, one immediately next to elevator for easy loading and unloading. Turn of River condos is a five minute walk to the beach and all the restaurants, shops and bars that make Folly Beach the Go To Beach of Charleston. The views from this condo can’t be beat with gorgeous sunsets from the screen porch and sunrises from the front balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Folly Beach is a very special town. A true Beach community with lots of fun and excitement while still only a short ride to downtown Charleston with all the history and sophistication of one of America’s best small cities. Folly is a great little seaside community with a terrific central pier and extensive beaches as all the restaurants, shops and bars that anyone would want.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at the Folly Beach condo. It was the perfect place to stay for the best of both worlds - an amazing historic city and the perfect shore town. The condo was clean and well equipped and the view from the porch is unobstructed and beautiful.

Real nice unit. Elevator access on top floor- end unit.

  • 5 of 5

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, comfortable beds, nice layout. The biggest hit was the patio over looking the water way. Seen dolphins off the deck.

The only critical problem we found was the traffic to the ocean. The unit had everything we needed well decorated, comfortable enough for 6 people.

The best part of our stay was the owners assistant, Christine there is nothing she would not do for us. We probably only contacted her 4 times, but each time it was 100% cooperation, something we did not expect. The final thing is we left something in the unit and she delivered it to UPS to be shipped to us. I expected her to tell me it was not there. Unbelievable service.

The owner John also replied to all our inquiries promptly, even after we rented it. I will probably go back and will rent this unit again if available.

Beautiful condo with gorgeous river, and sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived, we enjoyed the spacious condo. The view from the patio is great for morning coffee, and sunset. The condo was clean, and everything was functional. I would suggest a some hooks in the shower for wet swim attire to hang after rinsing. Management was very responsive and helpful. Thank you for sharing your home!

Car: recommended

This condo is on the Folly River and a very short walk to the Beach and all the shops, restaurants and bars that are concentrated in that area. So you have all the excitement of a resort Beach and a quite comfortable condo to return to when the day is done.
