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 about 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.
SUNDAY TO SUNDAY WEEKLY RENTAL - (maximum occupancy of 4)
Canine companion animals only, max. 2 subject to approval. No cats, owner allergic.
listing service changes that may surprise
■ DIRECT CONTACT with us PRIOR TO RESERVATION IS NOW RESTRICTED to in-system messages.
■ PHONE NUMBER shown is to call center... unfamiliar with details re: us, our property, chemical sensitively, nor our approach or requirements.
■ OWNER WEBSITE links are permanently removed.
■ RESERVATIONS INITIATED THROUGH SYSTEM ARE TENTATIVE UNTIL we are in receipt of completed contact documents and initial rental payment. Once we are able to speak directly and see that our home is likely a match, we'll provide documents for your review, documents must be completed and returned direct to us within 24 hours (or other term mutually agreed upon during phone conversation). In the event it proves a mismatch (prior to actual rental payment processing by us), the Guest initiates a cancellation directly via the VRBO system and should receive refund of the service fee collected within a reasonable time frame.
■ RENTAL PAYMENT(S) ARE STRICTLY BETWEEN US AND GUEST. This system collects the guest service fee re: this property, not the actual payment(s) for rental of premises.
■ OUR CANCELLATION POLICY IS STRICT BUT ISN'T AS THE SYSTEM DISPLAYS, we selected the closest match available.
■ REFUND POLICY for weekly rentals – see Payment Notes section.
■ PAYMENT SCHEDULE we use doesn't match system display/choices (it's more lenient). See Payment Notes section. Once the service fee is paid, everything else is between us and Guest.
■ Free Wifi

■ monthly rates based on 28 nights - not present in available system calc
■ system doesn't reflect SC Accommodations tax changes re: longer term
■ Including monthly rates in sys calc causes confusingly low avg/night rate.
■■■ RECENT SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS/CLARIFICATIONS
■ Guests are now able to withdraw their own booking requests (so long as Owner/Manager has not already accepted the booking) under "My Trips." Wonderful! Our listing is set to 24 hour acceptance vs. instant booking so we have some wiggle room.
■ Those of us who maintain our listings on a subscription basis are able to approve a full refund. If during our initial phone conversation, we realize it's a mismatch, Traveler would need to cancel from their account in this event and we'd then approve the cancellation (with full refund). We do have to set a 24 hour time limit on this though so our listing isn't removed from available properties for long.
■ Another option for anyone dealing with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Environmental Illness, Severe Allergies or Asthma. We know we really need an in-depth conversation before you can seriously consider staying with us and it's extremely difficult to accomplish through system messaging. Please alert us if this is the case in the initial message. I may be able to temporarily relax system parameters so we can speak without incurring a large service fee. You'd then need to cancel any reservation from your Traveler account after we've spoken. If we feel we are a match, you'd do that in order to clear that initial reservation, then make the actual desired reservation.
