About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 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.

Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why Betty J. Gambrell Cobb, Owner chose Charleston Area

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great cottage - don't change, just maintain - it's what a beach cottage is supposed to be. The atmosphere on Folly is wonderful. Reminds us of Wrightsville and Carolina beaches before the infusion of mega money! Hope to come back for some Spring and Fall visits. Really enjoyed our stay.

Love the Love Shack

  • 5 of 5

The was our 6th stay and it will not be our last. We keep coming back for the location, comfort, and set up. The shack is becoming our home away from home....now to see how I can get another week in for 2017! It's so easy to walk to all the restaurants and access to the beach is so convenient. Folly is our favorite place to visit for South Carolina beach time. Great placing to eat and friendly people. The kitchen is stocked with everything we need and Gigi had it cleaned and ready. I personally love the older beach cottage style and would not change a thing. You must have new bedding because I found the bed extremely comfortable and I had trouble getting up I was so content! Lol. We had a few rain storms and the sky lights made the rain wonderful. Our dogs love the yard and all the views for people watching. See you soon! ( I hope).

Great Place!

Enjoyed our stay here & was especially grateful for Gigi's extra effort to make it allergy friendly! Although many pups stay here, she cleaned thoroughly so that my husband's allergies did not give him a problem! Hooray & thank-you!!!

Loved the Love Shack!!

  • 5 of 5

3 college buddies that hadn't seen each other in years got together at the Love Shack. It was perfect for us and we so enjoyed the cottage, amenities and the location. It was so close to town and the public access to the beach was just across the street. Will definitely tell others if they are going to stay at Folly Beach about it!!!

What a charmer!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my wife and I. Great beach access and walking distance to food and shopping.

The owner BJ was attentive. GG met us on site and provided clean rooms. The amenities were just right!

The cottage was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed for prep including a coffee maker.

We arrived just after hurricane Matthew and the you would have never known it.

Great back yard space although let's be honest the beach was the draw for us.

Car: recommended

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.
