Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy Folly Beach in this beautiful, newly renovated sister unit to 'Designer Rental by the Beach'. Like its sibling, it also features heart pine flooring throughout, a Sony 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Theater with HD DirectTV (featuring a 42' Sony Bravia wall-mounted HDTV and a top-of-the-line Blu Ray/DVD player), Wi-Fi and free long distance calls, all brand new appliances including a Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator and a Frigidaire gas oven/range and dishwasher, tons of natural light, and an eclectic mix of comfortable designer furniture and decor.

The layout is extremely spacious, with the living room, dining area and kitchen area all connecting together without walls. There is a large porch out front, and a small one out back, from which you can see the ocean. A great place to find some solitude.

The unit is located right behind Bert's Market, which is the local 24 hour grocery store and deli so if you arrive and find you are missing something, odds are Bert's will have it, and you are only footsteps away. (We can also arrange to have your unit PRESTOCKED with groceries. Just mention it.) You are also only one block from Center St., the heart of Folly Beach's commercial district, with a great variety of shopping and delicious food. Don't forget to visit the pier!

Oh, and if you have more than 6 people, but less than 14, you can rent our sister unit we mentioned earlier, 'Designer Rental by the Beach', as well as this unit as 1 collective compound. Both units share a large front porch and together they have 5 bedrooms and sleep a total of 14 people (5 queen beds and 2 bunk beds). Just let us know you're interested in both units when you talk with us!

About Omar and Julia Colon

Omar & Julia are year round Folly Beach residents. Besides managing their rental properties, they own and operate Bert's Market, the only grocery store on Folly Beach. They have 3 daughters and one son.

Why Omar and Julia Colon chose Folly Beach

Folly Beach is one of those hidden gems...a place that seemingly hasn't been touched by the rest of the world. Its charm is one of a kind! Our unit is a 60 second walk from the beach, and 1 block from Center Street, where all the restaurants, bars and shops live.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful weather year round, the constant sound of the ocean, and convenience of Bert's right around the corner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place to stay! My group really enjoyed this space. It's very comfortable, happy and hip! The location could not get any better. I will definitely book this condo the next time I'm in the area.

Great location and place is neatly decorated. Love the style

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The location to the beach and the town is excellent. We will be back to Folly beach. The place suited our family nicely. It could use a couple minor repairs but overall really liked the place.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at your rental by the beach was great! The place is adorable, and conveniently located near the beach and walking to all the great restaurants in Folly. We'll definitely be back! I highly recommend it. It's nestled in a great little neighborhood right next door to a 24-7 quaint grocery with fresh home-cooked breakfast sandwiches and a great deli daily. We didn't want to leave!

Thanks again for your hospitality!

Beautiful Place, So-So area and service

  • 3 of 5

My Mom, Daughter and I needed a place to stay during Charleston baseball tournament my son was in. First, the great things. The place was very accomodating. It had everything we needed and everything was in good condition and clean! Only a block away from the beach which is very convenient. Opportunity for improvement. You have the ability to call or email the owner. The first day we sent an email because the volume on the TV in the living room was "fixed" on mute and we couldn't figure out how to unmute it. Not a big deal since we don't watch much TV anyway and the one in the bedroom worked fine. Never received a response. 2nd day, the code to get into the place stopped working. Luckily the grocery store down stairs had someone to let us in. We called owner left voicemail. They responded via email with another code. That didn't work either. And finally, this place is above a liquor store, behind a grocery store and across the street from a bar. It's a little noisy. Especially in the morning. This isn't a big deal since it didn't bother our sleep, however, we were there during Spring break during the week. It may be more of an issue during busy season.

We really liked the inside and had a great time. I just think the lines of communication could be better and if you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy on the beach, this may not be the place for you.

Fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for my birthday with friend. We had an amazing experience. This unit is located right above the liquor store which was very interesting, but didn't effect our stay whatsoever. The unit itself is beautiful and has more than the basic necessities. Will definitely consider staying here again. Within perfect walking distance to the beach and the main strip.
