House, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This cottage is ideally located for families and couples who want to come and go from the beach and downtown without driving, parking or walking very far. The beach access, directly across the street, is just 40 feet from the front steps. Restaurants and shopping area are just 3 blocks away. We are located at the corner of West Ashley Ave. and 4th Ave. - you can't miss our bright yellow cottage. 324 W. Ashley Ave., Folly Beach, SC
One of Folly's original cottages, the Love Shack has its original heartpine floors, board and batten walls and furnishings of its era. You can see the ocean from almost every room in the house - or listen to the ocean and feel the breezes on the front screened porch and large deck. There's even a roof top deck over the porch if you want a panoramic view of the island.
This rental offers guests a combination of comfort and nostalgia that's getting harder to come by...we have aimed to preserve the same flavor we enjoyed as youngsters coming to the beach, before the era of condos and 'McMansions.' This property has 2 bedrooms and a large living area, both areas equipped with 42' flat screen TVs. Our cottage has approximately 650 square feet.
The living area and kitchen are open, divided by a bar/table/counter which is an old hatch door from a WWII Liberty Ship - refinished of course.
Folly Beach is a six mile long barrier island, and the closest beach to historic Charleston, South Carolina, 15 minutes on the Connector. In choosing Folly Beach as one of their top ten 'All American Beach Towns,' AOL Travel described the things to see: 'Communing with nature is more common than commuting to the office, honking is what the birds do, and a board meeting is a bunch of surfers hanging out at the Washout. Newcomers' first stop should be McKevlin's Surf Shop, here since 1965. They'll set you up with a rental and one-hour lesson for $40. Folly Beach County Park is quieter than busy Center Street beach, but still has boogie boards, umbrellas, and bikes for rent. At Folly Beach Crab Shack, grab a hammock chair, and munch on buckets of seafood.'
We welcome children of all ages and dogs. Our property is located on a corner lot. The backyard has a canopy of live oaks and is completely fenced. This home is not nearly as elevated as the newer ones; so there's only 10 steps from the back door to the yard. All these features make pet care and child care a lot easier.
During summer season, we rent by the week and our turnover day is Saturday. Check-in: 3:00 PM; Check-out: 10:00 AM

About Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner
After a long career, I chose Charleston as my retirement home. What's so interesting about that is...I traveled several years in search of my perfect spot and ended up only 100 miles from home. Charleston is multi dimensional in what it offers. I enjoy the history, culture, art, music, and academia of downtown, but cherish most the beach, boating, and bohemian attitude of our barrier islands (Folly). So, for now, I lawyer a little with my downtown firm, and spend most of my time on the beach, water, or traveling. I now have two baby grandchildren in the area...so my traveling is taking a second seat.

Why Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner chose Folly Beach
I chose Folly Beach for its relaxed atmosphere and convenience to downtown Charleston. I'm able to enjoy the beach just as I did as a teen at Folly because it has retained its identity.

The Love Shack was the perfect combination of 1920’s beach house and modern cool! The accommodations and location were great for enjoying a fun getaway. You can see and hear the ocean all day long and getting to the beach is just a few steps away. Very fun experience!
My third year visiting the Love Shack in March
I keep returning to the Love Shack because it’s the best place I’ve stayed in over the last seven years. It’s a wonderful location but the home itself is so well appointed and maintained and cared for that it’s like coming home for me! Hope to be back in 2019!
Location was the biggest asset. GG was very congenial and the House was very clean. It was small.
We enjoyed a our stay, mainly because of the location near the branch.
Wonderful, Funky Little Beach House!
The "Love Shack" suited our needs very well. The location was just great, so close to the beach & to restaurants & downtown. We loved the fenced in back yard for the dogs & the porch & deck were great to just sit & relax. Thank-you for sharing your home with our little family!
Beautiful little home, dog friendly, close to beach and walking distance uptown!
We loved our stay here and would love to stay here again.
Love shack get-a-way
We left the snow and cold of Ohio for almost 3 weeks at the love shack! Even though the weather wasn’t always the best, the house was warm and cozy and we still had a view of the ocean. Walking distance to a great coffee shop and a short drive to downtown and other locations made this feel like a winter vacation. Our little dog loved the beach and the house and settled right in! Wish we could have used the beach things in the basement! Washer and dryer were the best I’ve ever used!!!
Love Shack is directly across the street from the beach. Located on a corner lot on second row, your ocean views are unobstructed and your beach path a direct shot through the widest beach access at Folly. We are 3 blocks from downtown (Center Street) and 3 1/2 blocks from the pier. Most guests just park their car for the week....and walk or bike everywhere. And, this is a good thing - as parking is at a premium downtown during Spring, Summer, and Fall. Love Shack's view and location are perfect. This location is ideal for young families and folks who like to walk back and forth from the beach during the day. And, for dog lovers who like to check on their pets many times each day while on the beach. Guests also enjoy watching their friends and children in the ocean from Love Shack's large front deck.
