About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms / 5.5 bathroom (Sleeps 15+ couch)

** 9/12/17 - post hurricane IRMA we are 100% good to go! No damage **

'A Shore Thing' is a 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bathroom, handicapped accessible, four story vacation rental dream house. Elevator access (40"wide x 45" deep cab) to every floor and handicapped accessible (ADA) master suite in main level (sliding board transfer from WC to shower / toilet and open sink to wheel under). Four (4) master suites, each with private bathrooms and all with an ocean view and private / personal 'romeo & Juliet balcony'. A children's room will feature 3 sets of bunk beds (5 twins and 1 queen) for a total of 6 beds. Every bedroom with flat-screen TVs and new mattresses (2016) Top floor features a billiard / game room with a tiki hut. Main (1st floor) features a large open kitchen with island, 2 dishwashers, screened porch and open porch with built in 30' Lynx gas grill. There's a Sonos sound system with speakers in the living room, kitchen, screen porch, billiard room, and garage. Stairs off of open porch lead directly to the beach, where a landing with seating / cooler storage and an outdoor shower will be located. Underneath the house is parking for 6 cars/SUVs, plus driveway parking. Granite countertops throughout. This is a gorgeous new home on folly, designed and built for vacationing. Enjoy.

I keep the calendar very up-to-date. If dates are blocked out then they are unavailable. From memorial day to Labor Day, we have a firm at seven day minimum stay. Check in and check out day are Saturday with no exception.

** FYI - Credit card bookings result in a 3.5% transaction processing fee. E-checks are free (BOTH available as payment methods on VRBO's website ***

Please take note, all reviews prior to May 2016 apply to the old property "black magic". This property was completely demolished and rebuilt from the ground up to become "a shore thing". As of July 2016, Google earth has not taken updated pictures so if you take a look at the property it will look different on Google earth then it actually does in real life today.

WEDDING / EVENTS -$1250 non refundable event fee

This house was also designed to host weddings / events (50 person max). The large fenced in backyard has ample space for tables / chairs / dance floor. The garage has been finished (painted / siding / smooth ceilings, can lights & speakers) for a caterer to setup or for many tables & chairs (as a rain plan). Get married out on the beach and have your reception in the backyard.

A port-a-jon rental is required for events as all of Folly Beach does not have city sewage (we are on a septic tank) and too many people using the bathroom (more than 15-20) can cause it to back up an overflow in the backyard).

What makes this house unique

Great wedding venue

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house with great setup for big family parties or weddings. My wife and I got married here the last weekend in September and enjoyed every minute. We arrived the previous Monday and had a large group of friends staying with us. Everyone loved the amazing views and having access to a nice uncrowded part of the beach. The house is extremely well thought out top to bottom, and you couldn't have a more responsive or helpful host than Ross.

All the bedrooms have gorgeous views of the ocean, plenty of space and nice en suite bathrooms. (Three of the four beds are raised pretty high so it might be worth bringing a step stool if you have anyone with limited mobility in your group) The bunk room is FANTASTIC! It's set up very much like a high end hostel, each bunk has an outlet, a light, some privacy and stairs rather than ladders, so it's not just for kids. All our single friends loved staying there and said the mattresses were super comfortable.

Kitchen: Wonderfully well equipped kitchen. The two dishwashers were a lifesaver and the big fridge/freezer and high end stove made big group dinners easy! Its extremely well stocked and got all the necessary appliances and equipment.

Outdoor space: The backyard is a good size. We had our ceremony out there with about fifty people and there was still tons of space. We had the reception under the house, which is nicely finished and had enough space for tables buffets, etc. We started dancing inside, but it spread out to the lawn because it was so pretty out there! (And the Sonos sound systems is a really great perk indoors and out!)

There's so many great things to say about this house! Thanks for the great stay Ross!

You're "shore" to have an incredible time here

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible time we had in this house! My wife and I rented this place for ourselves and our friends during the week of our wedding at the nearby Tides hotel. The owner, Ross, was incredibly communicative over the months leading up to our stay, answering questions that we had about sleeping accommodations, entry, and parking personally over the phone and via email. He was even kind enough to let us in a bit early so we could fully stock the house before our guests arrived. The sonos system was an awesome touch, and allowed us to set a great beachy mood the whole time. The bedrooms are all massive, and the views are amazing. I also loved how quickly we could go from grilling on the deck to taking a dip in the water. The house itself is very thoughtfully laid out, allowing everyone to feel comfortable despite sleeping so many people! The experience was completely seamless, and we're already working with our friends to find a week and all return next year! I can't recommend this place enough!

Great place to stay

The house and its layout were great. Everything in the house is newer and high quality. Great location that is away from the crowds but walkable to restaurants and entertainment. The owner was great to work with through the entire process.
