About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This Riverfront unit is half of a duplex, the views are spectacular up and down the Folly River. If more than one family plans to vacation together, call for availability of mirror unit next door. Parking is limited to 2 cars in tandem in the garage area below unit. The beach is a short walk away as is dining, shopping, a public library, several public parks, and 3 churches.

The decor is casual and comfortable, we receive many compliments. The unit is less than 5 years old, as are the furnishings. This is a riverfront unit and has a larger flagstone patio area behind the unit with table and chairs and umbrella for additional shade.

Your family will love the casual Folly lifestyle and will want to return year after year!

Why Carol and Bobby Newman chose Folly Beach

My family has always loved Folly Beach and boating on the rivers and creeks. You will enjoy strolling to Center Street to shop or dine at many of the small quaint shops and restaurants. No chain or fast food on the island. Come see for yourself and you will agree.

What makes this townhome unique

This is the perfect spot for those visitors that enjoy a marshfront and river view. Very different from the steady repetitive rolling waves of the ocean, the river and marsh is always changing. Yes, the tide does come in and go out, but the river is more colorful than the ocean and the marsh grass changes with the seasons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay


Tranquil Beauty

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your townhouse. Your decor rivals most homes, as the furniture and decorative items throughout the house are the nicest quality for a vacation rental home that I've seen in a long time. Despite my Dad's inability to walk far or climb stairs, the large garage made it most convenient to come up approx. 8 stairs to find everything one could need on the main floor (bed, bath, well equipped kitchen, dining and living room, not to mention the wonderful screened in porch), all of which is exposed to the most peaceful breathtaking views of the Folly River, especially at Sunset! The open floor plan makes for a wonderful place whether for 2 people or an entire family. The walking distance to the beach and to Center Street is in close proximity and very pleasant.

Riverfront Condo at Folly Beach, South Carolina

A restful location with beautiful sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the peaceful and convenient location. The house was roomy and perfect for walking to town, going to the beach, or just sitting on the balcony and watching the boats and dolphins. The only downside was that the bikes were unusable due to flat tires, etc. and there was only 1 beach chair. FYI - the toaster needs replacing.

Overall we enjoyed the property and would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the prompt review! Glad you enjoyed. My family will be staying there this weekend and I will address those items mentioned. Not sure where my beach chairs have gone and toaster will be replaced today!

Beautiful location to watch a gorgeous Folly sunset!

  • 5 of 5

My teacher friends and I stayed in Waters Edge over Memorial weekend. The weather was perfect and the place was comfortable and welcoming. We had a lot of room to hang out and enjoy our time together! We especially liked the screened in porch. The pool was also fun. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you Carol!

Perfect location on Folly Island

  • 5 of 5

I hate to let the secret out, but if you're looking for a quiet location to enjoy beautiful sunsets, then this is the condo (#121) to rent. It's not on the beach, you don't want that. You want to get a good night's sleep, right? This is on the riverfront with a screened-in porch facing west over the river. You'll appreciate the light screen when any bugs (in Wisconsin it would be mosquitos) come out. The king-sized bed is comfy and there are two other nice bedrooms as well. Great for couples, or a family with teenagers who like to venture out on their own. Probably not a great place for anyone with mobility issues as there are stairs to get up to the main floor and to the upstairs bedrooms. How to get to the beach? You walk a picturesque half-mile and you're there. Plus the restaurants and bars are right there too. We rented a car and drove about 10 minutes into Charleston to shop on King Street and eat at as many restaurants as possible. We'll be back. :)

Beautiful view but the condo needs maintenance and the construction noise was awful.

  • 2 of 5

Several maintenance items need attending including the lack of door handle on the screened porch which we believe is the reason we were locked out on the porch, a broken bed, half the light bulbs in the kitchen burned out (we replaced them), the coffee maker stopped working and the Jacuzzi jets didn't work. Our first morning after arrival I went into the garage to get something out of my car and the back door was open with an extension cord plugged into an outlet inside the garage. I walked out back to find a worker with tools spread out on the patio table of our unit. I texted the owner through this app and got no response, however a little while later he had moved next door. I would not have rented the unit if I had known about the multiple maintenance issues or the construction.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear of these issues during your stay and apologize for the inconvenience. These items have already been addressed. If I had know that the daytime construction was disturbing to you, I would have made every attempt to move you to other accommodations. Waters Edge was hit by Hurricane Matthew and repairs to adjoining buildings are almost complete. The dock and pool area have been repaired and are open.

Wonderful Location

Beautiful setting with convenient walk to Center Street. Laid back atmosphere. Plenty of beach access. We even saw dolphins swimming in the Folly River.

Beautiful view, great location, comfy condo... missing it already!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Carol & Bobby's lovely condo. The view of Folly River is stunning and always different. Attractively decorated with comfy beds, very clean, convenient to the beach and also Charleston. Location is close to Folly Beach restaurants but away from the Center Street noise. Easy 5-10 minute walk to the beach (tip: take 3rd street which runs partly over a shady, wooded path.) Kitchen was great with everything needed for cooking local seafood from Crosby's down the road. Owners were accommodating, helpful and responsive. Would definitely return!!!
