About the property

Duplex (Downstairs Unit), 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

It just doesn’t get any better than this. If you love to see the ocean and hear the waves from your bedroom…. If you want to be only steps away from planting your feet in the sand…. If you want to enjoy Folly Beach without breaking the bank…the Mini-Pearl is the perfect place for you.

Renovated in 2009, the Mini-Pearl is a great place for a lazy getaway or work vacation. Our screened and open-air porches offer the opportunity to soak in awesome ocean breezes, maybe even nap on the hammock, while staying in touch with the outside world.

This classic beach house, built in 1928, has been in the Jackson Family for 40 years. In our opinion, it reflects the charm and character of old Folly.

So, come and join us (with your pooch) on the Edge of America. Our goal is for you to have a most pleasurable experience. A home away from home that you can enjoy for years to come.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mini Pearl. It was a great place...very clean...and so close to the beach! We will definitely return! Plenty of linens...even beach towels and beach chairs. And, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for preparing meals and having our morning coffee.

You'd be crazy not to give this 5 stars! :)

  • 5 of 5

This location was ideal! We went over spring break. It was the perfect distance from town, which made it less busy traffic wise down by the house. Literally right across the street from the beach and public access trail, and you can see partial ocean views from the bedroom window. Loved having the windows open, catching that ocean breeze, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves as well!

Super pet friendly area and home! Our Corgi was one happy pup!

This house was more than I expected it to be when I made the reservation. Lindsay was WONDERFUL to work with and she made sure the house was go to go when we checked in! You cannot beat the price for what you get! Cannot wait for our next visit at the Mini-Pearl!

Folly Beach Bargain

  • 3 of 5

Let's start with the upside of this property. It is in a great location, the walking path to the beach is right across the street and you are away from the more crowded sections of Folly Beach. The main bedroom gets a great ocean breeze, the mattress is nice and firm, and the sound of the waves lull you to sleep. And most importantly for us the price is right.

The downside is that this basement unit just needs some tender loving care. Fresh paint, new screens where they are busted out in the porch, and overall general upkeep would do wonders to turn this cottage from old and tired to vintage and charming. But you pay a steep price for charming near the beach, so if you are more concerned about location and price, this unit fits the bill.
