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!

Carol and Bobby Newman purchased this townhome in 2005

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.

Tranquil Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing on Folly Beach for the past 12 years and many of those times we have rented at Waters Edge. Carol and Bobby's unit has been the best yet and we will definitely be staying there again in the future. Even with the aftermath of a hurricane Carol kept me updated on the power status and other various damage around the complex prior to our visit. The unit itself is in great shape and everything is in working order. Most importantly there is a great view from the screened in balcony of the water (you can see the dock as well as the bridge into Folly). We really enjoyed being able to sit on the balcony and watch family members on the dock. It is also just a short (few blocks) to center street and the beach itself. It was also nice to see the manager of the complex out already getting the pool cleaned up and dock repaired from the storm the week before. If you are looking for a nice, clean and relaxing place for a getaway then this is the place for you.

Beautiful Sunsets, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home on multiple occasions and have always enjoyed it tremendously! The furniture is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The best part though is the location which is walking distance to downtown while being able to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets from the screen porch. We will be be back!

Excellent Property and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived there on the 9/17 and I must say, from the moment we walked into the condo, it was amazingly beautiful! The condo was very clean and neat without a spot of dust anywhere! The views were great from the balcony and we really enjoyed out stay there. If we needed to ask the owner anything, she would respond back via email in a timely manner, which was great! Looking forward to coming back again next year!

Nice Property but Dirty!

  • 2 of 5

The owner is very nice and the property itself is beautiful with great views of the waterway. It is a five minute walk to the beach and any of the resturants. However the property was just plain dirty. None of the cabinets had been cleaned out from previous guests so there was old food, there was still food in the refrigerator/ freezer from the past guest, it was extremely dusty, half of the lights downstairs were out, my fiancée cleaned the shower before we used it due to the mold that was built up in it. Basically it just seemed like the person cleaning the cabin and owner of the cabin just didn't care about the property. I wouldn't stay here again, but all it needs is a really good cleaning. I did contact the owner upon arrival to let her know that we were unhappy with the cleanliness and she offered to send someone over on Monday and I told her that it would be fine to send someone over the change the lights but they never came.

Perfect Folly Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this condo and stay at Folly. Plenty of room for my family with 4 adults and 2 children. The condo has the best views of the river, so serene, relaxing, clean and well maintained. The location is perfect, close to Charleston, a short walk to the beach and dinning. We did not want to leave when our week was up and are hoping to be back very soon. Thanks Carol for a wonderful stay at your home!

Best views at Waters Edge

  • 3 of 5

The good: One of best views at Waters Edge from porch. Very good location for going to Charleston. Spent a restful week at the condo. Good accommodations for 4. Did have bikes (flat tires) and water toys. Sliding door to screened porch very clean. New carpet.

Reservations were easy to make and deposit promptly returned. Only had one key. Second was supplied when requested.

The not so good: Parking in garage challenging for a large vehicle or one with a large turning radius. Garage is very cluttered and dirty. Extra people will get stools for meals.

Beds not made (told this was so we were sure sheets were clean). Not very clean overall. Old food in refrigerator, freezer and cupboards. Refrigerator shelves, bins had not been cleaned. Looked like someone had run a vacuum, swept and wiped horizontal surfaces without moving much. Old mismatched bed linens, towels frayed, no chest of drawers in master, cheap pillows, kitchen equipped with odds and ends, dull knives, 2 of TVs were old.

This was our first time at Folly Beach. Do not know what standard for area is.

Have rented through VBRO before. Other owners took a lot more care and pride in their properties.

Owner's Response: I have stressed over how to respond to this, our first review of less than 5 stars. First and foremost we strive to provide a clean and comfortable spot for our guests to enjoy all that Folly Beach has to offer. We are not the Ritz Carlton. Since the first of the year(prior to their visit) we have made the following improvements: The new carpet this guest mentioned, fresh paint, a comfortable new sofa, new twin mattresses upstairs, new queen bedspread, new flat screen TV in great room. The previous wall mounted one lasted a mere 3 years: however the older TVs in the 2 bedrooms have been time tested. We provide our own towels and linens because the rentals available on the beach are inferior.For your dining enjoyment we have seating for 4 at the kitchen table, 4 at the island, and 4 at our favorite spot on the back screened porch. We had been storing our boating items in the garage and have returned them to the boat for the season. There is a air pump for the bikes. Please feel free to contact Bobby or I if you have any questions about our second home.
