About Rhonda Sheppard

I grew up in Charleston, SC, visiting Folly Beach all the time. Before Hurricane Hugo, I remember enjoying the Folly Pier amusement area and watching 'shagging on the beach'. The Atlantic House was a favorite place to eat and enjoy dinner over the ocean. I have always been partial to the ocean and knew that one day I would have a house to enjoy the ocean sounds and breezes.

Rhonda Sheppard purchased this house in 2002

Why Rhonda Sheppard chose Charleston Area

When my boys became interested in surfing, of course they wanted to go to the 'Folly Washout' area where all the surfers go. I would take them and it brought back the childhood memories of staying at Folly Beach. I began to look at the real estate and found a little gem with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Folly River on the other. And oh, the ocean breezes...

What makes this house unique

My college roommates and I spend a week every summer at the house, enjoying the charm of undeveloped Folly Beach, the sightseeing of historic Charleston, and of course the shopping! If we aren't on the beach, we spend all of our time on the front porch where we can see the ocean and enjoy the constant breezes, solving the world's problems and reminiscing of the days gone by!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rarely know how much time we miss with our families. It takes a magical and special place like Folly Beach to show us the time we lose. The House By The Sea is very inviting and welcoming. The breathtaking view from the front balcony is just one of the many aspects of the house I enjoyed. It saddens me to leave and I will never forget my stay. From my family and others, we thank you for a remarkable stay.

Better than the PICS......

  • 5 of 5

Even during a blustery spring long weekend - we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The deck is big with comfy furniture with views of the ocean in front and the intracoastal waterway in back. The screened porch gave us extra space for the grandkids when it rained. The beach is just across the street and since the property is almost at the end of Folly Beach - traffic was light. Bedrooms, baths, and living area very comfortable. The kitchen well stocked and easy to use.

The whole property is VERY neat and clean. One of the best VRBO properties we have stayed in. Our family will return!

We loved our stay and the easy access to the beach. The grill and new deck with fabulous furniture always had a breeze, and the views were incredible!

The kitchen is small but well appointed. Updated baths are great.

I recommend this house for outdoor lovers!!!
