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).

Why Ross Curnett chose Charleston Area

"A Shore Thing" has a beautiful, large beach in the peaceful west end of folly beach. Short 100 foot boardwalk from back porch to beach sand

What makes this house unique

Every bedroom and all living spaces have a water view. No fighting over who gets the "bad bedroom" because there are no bad rooms in this house

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well laid out and very well stocked. The lawn was a big bonus for small children! They loved being able to go outside to play without going onto the beach. Would have loved to have more king sized beds but over all, everyone was comfortable.

Great Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our intimate wedding at this property! It was absolutely incredible! Everything to the large back yard (which was perfect for the ceremony), to the finished basement (which was great for food and drink tables to be located)! We even planned to stay two extra nights after the wedding because the house was perfect for a short honeymoon staycation! Ross kept in contact whenever we had questions about anything regarding the house! Could not have asked for a more positive experience!

Wonderful property in a great little beach town

  • 5 of 5

Our large family spent a nice week at this new property at the SW end of Folly Island. Located right on a beautiful beach just a short distance from restaurants, shopping, water sports and more, this is a terrific place to relax. It is close in to Charleston for those who want to get into town and for rainy day activities.

The well thought out floor plan includes 4 full bedroom suites and a cool room for kids. We ate most meals on the screened porch and enjoyed the grassy play area tucked into the dunes. There is more than ample garage space for cars, bikes, kayaks, etc.

The property owners are accessible and attentive.

When we go back to Folly Beach, this is where we want to stay.
