Light airy end unit featuring hardwood floors throughout and 12' ceilings in the latest development in the heart of Folly Beach, referred to locally as 'The Edge of America' and well known for it's eclectic mix of inhabitants. Folly has long been attractive to the artist community and is one of the best surfing areas on the east coast.
An ideal eclectic getaway in a new, lower density, well-designed complex with Caribbean flair. Suitable for 1-2 couples or small families. Well behaved canine family members are welcome when the responsible adult to child+dog ratio is 1:1 or better. Peaceful, perfectly situated location away from the hustle and bustle of front beach party atmosphere, yet truly only a 7 minute stroll to beach and fishing pier, 5 minutes to Center Street restaurants and entertainment. Historic Charleston SC, with all its charm, is only 15 minutes away via motorcoach. An electric piano in the living room delights keyboardists and vocalists alike.
We strive to keep our home chemical scent-free by cleaning with natural products and essential oils, as well as avoiding chemical pesticides etc. Chemical scent-free laundry detergent as well as chemical free air freshener and insect repellent is also provided. We ask that guests refrain from using artificially scented products while in residence. If advice is needed as to where/how to obtain naturally scented personal care items, we're glad to assist.
Spacious... room to be together.. room to be apart. We've not converted the small study into a dedicated third bedroom as is often done, electing instead to retain it as a multi-use space instead. Our guests are generally more mature adults seeking better quality accommodations and a more open and relaxed atmosphere. Study includes yoga mat etc. as well as a full size drafting table, enabling accommodation of other pursuits. There is also a sofa should you have an extra family member joining you for a day or two. This room is truly meant as another space to retreat, design, think and read, not meant to be pressed into full service as sleeping accommodation for a full week. However, in a pinch, for a couple nights it'll do.

Folly is a GREAT KAYAKING AREA, public landing is 2 blocks away, bring your kayaks! Two beach cruiser bicycles provided for environmentally friendly island excursions. Electric piano in living room to work the kinks out of your latest composition or practice your vocals.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I'm a lifelong resident of the Charleston area and have always enjoyed the water oriented activities this beautiful coastal area has to offer. Zoom in on the map below to see location and relationship to points of interest.
Why the Owner Chose Waters Edge (Folly Beach, SC, USA):
We originally chose this townhome located in Back Bay (not Water's Edge) as a second residence because Folly is said to have the cleanest air on the east coast and I needed to escape the effects of the heaviest spring pollens at home. We are now able to share our townhome year round as I am no longer forced to flee from home every spring. ;) Please note we're _not_ located in the Water's Edge Development. Recent system changes seem to use somewhat inaccurate latitude/longitude tagging to determine location/development/community.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
With the county boat landing just a couple blocks away, it's convenient to go for a quick paddle on a whim, the back side of Folly offers wonderful places to kayak. We never know what we're going to see. The island is also a great place to jog and bicycle, plus miles and miles of beach to enjoy. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water makes beach excursions so much more convenient and really does minimize sand inside. The location is prefect, not in the hub bub of front beach activity, yet an easy walk to beach access and to restaurants etc. on Center Street. ↂ GREEN ALL NATURAL CLEANING PRODUCTS ↂ LOW TO NO PESTICIDE USE (baits & plant based pesticide used only if required, essential oil steam mopping is our most effective deterrent) ↂ WIRELESS INTERNET will be deactivated on request (others close though & will lose Netflix) ↂ Cable TV vs. satellite ↂ no toxic 'wrinkle free' sheets & no linen service used, we do it all ↂ no falling asleep to the overpowering smell and effects of bleached linens, dryer sheets, or fabric softeners ↂ linens washed and dried in machines free of chemicals/synthetic scents ↂ chlorine filters on showers ↂ filtered water in fridge and ice-maker ↂ no synthetic scents ↂ no smoking ↂ CAT ALLERGIES? We only allow dogs ;)
