Former psychology professor and cognitive behavior therapist. Currently, I sing professionally with my band,

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

Charleston Oceanfront Villas is the best place to stay on Folly Beach. It's gated, has under-the -building parking, two swimming pools, 2 elevators, is directly on the beach and I bought one of the penthouse units in the center of the complex with unobstructed ocean views.

What makes this condo unique

We are so close to the ocean you can cast your line into the water at high tide.

great get away

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this condo. It was nicely furnished. It was a pleasure not to have to bring towels or sheets. I would definitely stay here again. I was hesistant renting over the internet, but found the owner to be very honest and accoommodating. I would definitely come back here. Great ocean view and very safe community. Just a short walk and you are on the beach, or you can sit on the balcony and watch the dolphins and the surfers while the pelicans fly overhead. The only thing that I found missing from the condo was a broom! and who wants one on the beach. This condo is well maintained.

This condo is well located to be able to walk to the local shops as well as a short drive to Charleston. I particularly like The Crab Shack & Lost Dogs. If you are an adventurer, you will love Gilligan's on John's Island...the best seafood in the South! Also, Poogan's Porch & 82 Queen will give you some good atmosphere if you want to go in the city. Don't miss seeing the churches in Chars. ..the Holy City. They are to behold. I am a native who moved to Pa, but will forever be a Charlestonian. If you are looking for native cuisine, by all means go to Justene's on Broad St.

All in all, this was a nice property. If you have a disability there is an elevator, but it is a little far from this condo. The building has great handicap parking next to the elevators.

I hate to say too many good things for fear that it will not be available when I want to go back.

Amazing place to stay! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect!! Views are wonderful. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Great location, plenty of room for a family of 6 - all adults! Kitchen has everything you could possibly need if you choose to 'eat in', but you are very close to all restaurants should you not want to cook. Owner was fantastic to work with. Gaining access to the unit on check in day was a breeze. Will definitely look to rent this place again. Thank you!

Vikki & the Tennessee Ladies

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely GORGEOUS ! We have been coming to Folly for 9 years and this was the condo we booked on our first trip and have been coming back every year since then and stayed here in the same condo. I don't know if I can sing praises enough about the place and the owner. He is very accommodating and the condo is beautifully decorated and always maintained to the highest level with updates in some way every time we come with the assurance that everything works properly. It is on the 4th floor and the balcony views are breathtaking. You can see the ocean as soon as you open and enter through the front door setting the atmosphere for a wonderful stay. It is conveniently located to numerous restaurants and shops all within walking distance. You are in a perfect location to sit on your balcony and watch some of the most beautiful sunrise and sunsets you will ever experience. There is always about 5-6 ladies in our group and with the gated entrance you do not have any worries regarding safety concerns. We park and take elevator right up to the condo - hassle free. If you love sightseeing you are only about 15 minutes to Charleston for a wonderful day's outing. We are so looking forward to our trip back here in October 2017 and are so appreciative to the owner for everything he has done for us over the years. Believe me you will only have wonderful experiences here and the rates are very affordable. I wish there were more "stars" to rate this condo.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this unit many times over the years and absolutely love it. Being on the 4th floor is like being on a ship looking out at the ocean. I prefer this unit over others I have stayed in - very comfortable, with great beds and normally new updates are added each year. The owner is very easy to work with ------ A GREAT BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. My family and I highly recommend this unit to all.

Awesome condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Folly and it did not disappoint. We loved this particular condo. First off the view was amazing! This condo was right on the beach, and I mean right on the beach! The pools were also very convenient and well maintained. We were also impressed on how well this unit was stocked. Plenty of towels, beach chairs and cleaning supplies. Also we loved the fact that this unit was walking distance to plenty of great restaurants and shops. The condo was all I could have wanted and more. Oh and the condo owner Ron was very cool to work with. Loved our trip and would recommend this condo, no doubt!

Amazing view and location but....

  • 3 of 5

The view from this villa was really amazing! The new beds were comfortable and it had all the little amenities one would need for their stay. Loved the location, pools, ease of access to beach and walking distance to best eataries. That said, the furnishings were not as pictured. Although it appeared clean, it really needs some deep cleaning and maintenence to make it a place I'd stay again.

Owner's Response: I was very disappointed to see this review. My unit is cleaned and deep cleaned on a regular basis. I have had the same cleaning company for over 10 years and I normally hear great reviews about the condition of the condo. The Furnishings are as pictured except for new comforters.
