At “Estate of Folly” there is no need to choose between ocean view and marsh view because you get both. This property is located on the eastern end of Folly Beach which is where the island narrows significantly. The home is located across the street from the beach and as such, sitting on the beach is as simple as crossing the street. While a couple of beachfront homes sit directly across, ocean views and onshore breezes are still widely available from the very gracious wood deck which can easily and comfortably accommodate your entire entourage. Still, walk to the back of the house to find another wooden deck, half of which is screened. This deck opens up to a small and elegant backyard that is protected by Live Oak trees and abuts the beautiful Folly Island marsh.

A newly renovated custom kitchen will be the heart of the home. With a spacious living area attached, you will find plenty of room for hanging out with the family. All manner of decoration brings the Charleston experience into every room. Unique to “Estate of Folly”, upon entering through the main door, you will first see a room with a 6’ billiards table. Offset to one side from this room is a living room with access to the oceanfront deck as well as the master bedroom. The master is bedroom is spacious with personal access to the deck and has two walk-in closets. However, the real gem is the master bathroom which has a his/her sink. The tile floor flows into the gigantic shower which you can literally walk around in. It boasts three different shower heads, a seating area and three side-spray shower heads. Of course, the first thing you will notice when you enter the bathroom is the wonderfully decorated and spacious Jacuzzi tub.There is also another bedroom, 1 ½ bathrooms and the marsh-view deck. Upstairs are three more bedrooms, a small lounge area and another full bathroom with his/her sink. One of the bedrooms has its own private ocean view balcony as well. “Estate of Folly” is truly rich in its offering.

Visiting historic Charleston for the day? Walk the Charleston Battery, explore the Market, picnic at Waterfront Park, or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the Holy City. If there is time, visit an antebellum mansion or Plantation, adventure to the Aquarium, stop at a local hot spot to catch the latest Charleston gossip, or take a sunset cruise in Charleston Harbor. Already a seasonal Charlestonian? Call your complimentary concierge for more local tips, reservations for dinner, tee-times at your favorite golf course, and much more.

family time

  • 5 of 5

Our family has grown larger over the last year or two and we needed a vacation home that would accommodate our needs for space to be together and space to be apart. This home was perfect for us for exactly that reason, and we especially enjoyed cooking together in the spacious kitchen and playing games on the dining room table overlooking the marsh. After walking on the beach, which was just across the street, we sat out in the porch swing talking, and we read magazines and napped in the chairs out there. Walking into town gave us the exercise we needed, and I loved watching the sunrise from my bed each morning near the back porch. It is probably odd to go on and on about a shower, but the master bathroom was off the charts incredible. I have never had such a luxurious bathing experience before, but I surely will again when we return there next year. My family and I had a wonderful time together and this house was the backdrop where our connections were renewed.

Owner's Response: Lauri, reading reviews like yours absolutely makes our day! "Estate of Folly" truly is a unique property because of its spacious layout, expansive porches and its location (you get the best of both worlds with its proximity to the marsh and ocean). We are so happy to hear that your family had such a special vacation there. We look forward to having your family stay with us again in the future!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was as expected. Clean, comfortable beds, cold A/C, and fast internet. We were there just a few days after hurricane Irma came through so the beach across the street from the house was in rough shape. But we rented a 6 person golf cart for the day and went exploring Folly Island and had great time. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: What a nice review! We are so happy everyone had a great time! Folly Beach is getting back to normal post hurricane Irma. Renting a golf cart to tour the island is highly recommended. We hope to have the opportunity to host a future Folly Beach vacation. Thank you!

Great family retreat!

  • 3 of 5

Great location for celebrating our mother's 90th birthday! Wonderful front deck facing ocean was great for gatherings, games, and meals. Very large kitchen with adjoining den which was good for visiting and for group meal preparations. Only gave it three stars because the house was under renovations that were not quite finished which was inconvenient but it was still great. Once those are complete, it will be wonderful. There were only 3 baths one of which was in the master. So, if your group is very compatible, that will not be a problem. Beach access was directly across the street which was very convenient since we had small children with us. Loved watching all the surfers as well!

The best way to describe our stay is...we will definitely rent this home again!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my girls getaway week in this house. The house was very spacious for 10 girls. The backyard was so peaceful and quiet, and it's located just a few steps away from the beach. The pool table was great for our night in. Ubers and Lyfts are just $20ish to and from Downtown Charleston. There's also a fun night scene on Folly. My girls and I will definitely stay at Estate of Folly again. It accommodated all of us to a tee!

Perfect house for a family reunion and MUSC graduation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a large house for a family reunion so we could all be together. This gathering was also a celebration for our youngest sons MUSC graduation. We found the perfect place in "Estate of Folly". The house lent itself to having fun inside and out with decks on the front of the house and the back. The beach is just steps away and the sound is a quiet retreat for those who did not want the ocean and sand. The location was just perfect for us; not too far away from downtown Charleston, and anything you may need was available at the house or in Folly. Thanks for a memorable vacation and awesome place to gather a large family.
