Folly Beach Hideaway With Shared Dock and River Views

Bedrooms 1
Space 672 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Loft (Sleeps 2-4)

Affordable getaway 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston. 8 minute walk to the sandy beach and less than a block to the restaurants and shopping on Center Street. Folly Beach is a unique island with classic characters and hospitality. New shared

dock available for use.

River and marsh view apartment is upstairs with 1 bedroom with queen bed, separate living room area with pull out futon in sunroom, bathroom with bath and shower, and full kitchen with stove (no oven or dishwasher).

The location is quiet yet close to the pier and Center Street restaurants and shops. Long term tenants rent the house next door on the same property. The tenants are very easygoing and our vacation rental visitors rarely see them.

We've lived in the Charleston area our whole lives and would by happy to assist with recommendations to explore the wonderful Lowcountry. Please call with any questions.

While the apartment is above a garage, and is a freestanding structure, the porch of the rental is attached to the main house, which has long term tenants who are very laid back. The long term tenants do not use the porch per their rental agreement, the porch is only for vacation renters.

Please note that a $65 cleaning fee applies to rentals of less than 3 nights. This is sent as an updated quote/payment request once the unit is booked.

Thanks for looking.

About Mario Inglese

We love living on Folly Beach, it is truly a special place. We enjoy traveling and like helping folks enjoy their travels.

Mario Inglese purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mario Inglese chose Charleston Area

I bought on Folly Beach for the water, the salt air, it's funky vibe, it proximity to Charleston, best surfing in South Carolina and the relaxed pace.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is quiet and private but only one block to Center Street. No need to drive to eat dinner or grab a drink, it's a short walk. The pier, about 1/5 of a mile long, is a short walk away The public boat landing and Folly River pier are a 5 minute walk away.

Owner's Response: Renter apparently left the review the day he received the entire deposit returned through the VRBO system. Renter checked in on March 11 and was scheduled to check out on March 14th. Rather than emailing, calling, or texting me regarding the return of the deposit, he left this review on April 1st, and VRBO didn't release it for me to view until April 15th. I returned the deposit on April 1, so I was confused when I saw the review. After speaking with the renter and VRBO, it is undisputed that the deposit was received back by renter. 18 days is far longer that my typical return of deposit, being a CPA I got caught up in tax season, but it was clearly not "over 3 weeks" as stated in the above review.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Close to EVERYTHING and even short walk to beach. Beautiful view from deck and cozy/roomy home! I love the location and how relaxed the place felt. Only thing I would change is having an oven! We wanted to cook pizza one night :) We will definitely be back!

Conveniently located!

  • 4 of 5

We had only two nights to stay in Folly Beach, but wanted something a little different from a hotel room. Our two children were happy to have there own beds. We were happy to have a room with a door. Mario was extremely responsive on a couple of minor requests. We would be happy to book a return visit should we be in the neighborhood..

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, quite, clean, bath tub so clean I would not hesitate to soak awhile. Walk to the beach for a few hours or the day - - I chose the dock area, what at a great resource for a quite day by the river rather than the noisy ocean beach. Close enough to Charleston to do a fun day trip. Will probably be back. Would definitely not hesitate to refer to my friends.

Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

absolutely loved our little mini vaca in Folly Beach! The house is just the right size for a family of four. Kids stayed in the loft, which was fun for them. The house was clean and well stocked. I just couldn't find the dryer, which ended up being fine on this windy trip because there was a clothesline. The bonus of the entire trip was that everything was walking distance away. The beach is 7 short blocks away. Hoping to visit again soon!

Southern charm!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days at Folly Beach and really enjoyed ourselves. It was convenient to Charleston and everything on Folly was walking distance from this quant little place. We ate at Lost Dog Café, Loggerheads, Taco Boy and Woody's. All were good places to eat with great atmosphere. Best coffee was from Center Street!! Mario was quick to respond to emails and refunded our security deposit the day we left. Enjoy your stay!!
