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.

Great place close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great, clean, and perfect place for 1-2 people. Across from Sandy beach walk through. No steps at walk through. You can see the beach from the outside, screened in porch, outside sitting area, the hammock, or the main bedroom. Shower is not large. Only good for an average size person, nor very tall. I'm 5'2". Lindsey is awesome.

Relaxing and close to everything.

My car broke down and the owner was very kind about letting me leave it there until the tow truck arrived. Very clean and comfortable.

Perfect for 2!

  • 4 of 5

A cute place for two! Just steps away from the beach, which was great for walking on the beach at sunrise and easy access during the day.

I wish the weather had been cooler to where we could have opened the windows to hear the ocean and feel the breeze.

It is far enough away from downtown Folly to have peace and quiet.

We would stay here again!

Thank you!

This was a sweet lil spot and cant beat it for the price!

  • 5 of 5

The place had everything we needed to relax and enjoy! You can NOT beat the price for all that this rental gives you. Our dog was so happy to be with us and out on the patio/hammock combo area. The owners were super accomodating and we will be staying here again for sure! Close enough to the action but far enough to have serenity. Thanks yall!

Great location, quiet retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights here in mid-July and LOVED it. It was so quiet, even in the high season. It is about twenty seconds from the front door to the beach--you can't beat it! The rental is about a mile away from the center of town--an easy drive for dinner or coffee. The unit is not fancy, but clean and had everything we needed. Lindsay was so accommodating and professional. We hope to be back soon!

Right next to public beach access, perfect amount of space for 2 people.

  • 4 of 5

Lindsay was awesome, really nice and easy to work with. We liked this place. It's location was great for beach access, but not necessarily for the main Folly Beach street of shops and restaurants. It was about a 1.5 mile walk. We knew it was this far when booking though so it was not a surprise. While it was a good place to stay for proximity to the beach, I do feel like it should have been a bit nicer or closer to town for the price we paid. Maybe we were in peak vacation season. The doors could use a little TLC - hard to unlock/lock, open and shut. Overall a good choice.
