About the property

Condo/Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Overlooking the gorgeous Folly River is the Palmetto Tide, a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo located on a top level in the gated, private community of Mariners Cay. Stand on one of two personal balconies and gaze up the river in search of dolphin or straight across at Folly Island. This river front condo manages to boast the luxuries of a gated community including private pool, tennis courts and convenience store while maintaining a foundation in the elegance of simplicity.

The condo is decorated with small splashes of color and some coastal imagery without “overdoing it”. The first floor of this condo is dedicated to the public space and utilizes both wooden flooring and tile. The kitchen is offset from the front door and is separated from the rest of the floor by a clever breakfast bar from which you can see the dining and living room straight through to the porch. The living room is equipped with a plush couch, television and sitting chairs. The porch is screened-in and provides a Palmetto Tree blasted view of the Folly River, river filled with fish, birds, and dolphin. A small bar is located in a nook next to the dining room, ensuring that your ability to lounge and enjoy the salty breeze be inhibited by nothing.

The two bedrooms are located on the upper level of the Palmetto Tide. The master bedroom, of course, has its own bathroom. Additionally, it also has its own private, top level balcony with an uninhibited view of the river and the back of Folly Island. The Mariners Cay community is located just across the bridge from Folly Island. Depending on your preference, simply jump in the car, hop on a bicycle or just walk across the Folly River Bridge to access Folly Beach. The majority of the island’s retail shopping, restaurants and nightlife are just over the bridge. Of course, the sand and surf of Folly Beach is just as close. Let yourself get swept away by the Palmetto Tide.

Palmetto Tide Stay

  • 4 of 5

The location and view from the balcony were great. We were very disappointed in the dirty carpeting and the dryer heat element does not work. The pool is very nice and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Having Folly Beach just across the bridge was so convenient for food and other activities.

Wonderful Relaxing Place to vacatoin at Folly Beach awesome views

  • 5 of 5

We had a stress free wonderful relaxing vacation here at Mariners Cay, Glenda the owner is great to deal with honest, no hidden cost or added fees. She emails and responds to any questions promptly just great to rent from.

The condo has the most awesome views from both porches. We ate breakfast on the downstairs porch and watchd a family of dolphins play incredible experience for our daughters. Everything is tidy and clean. The kitchen was stocked with eveything we needed for our stay. The condo is so quiet the grounds are well maintained and beautiful lots of wildlife around the complex for photographers and bird watchers.

The location is one block from the town of Folly Beach there is a small park and boat ramps just across the bride. The beach is so close you can really ride a bike anywhere you need to go the Morris lighthouse is so close, also another state park and lots of little beach shops..There are grocery stores resturants shops all five minuets away, Charelston is a 15 min drive with the market places and great resturants so you can relax and enjoy without spending all your time in the car getting from point A to B lol

Just a great central location. I would reccommend this for families , couples or anyone wanting a really stress free time. Upstaters like us who like long weekends on the beach without breaking your bank this is a perfect retreat. We are already planning a return trip, Thanks Glenda it was such a pleasure!
