About the property

3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, sleeps 6 comfortably, ~3600 sqft

Excellent for family vacations or a relaxing getaway!! This spacious home is surrounded with the natural beauty of island living, yet it's only 10 minutes from historic downtown Charleston. It's also just an earshot of the ocean's pounding waves (1 mile from Folly Beach). The custom design affords an unrestricted view of its natural habitat on deep water and surrounding wildlife. Bring your camera! You can't get any closer to nature than this! Wading egrets, diving pelicans and passing dolphins are frequently seen here. Also enjoy use of the dock for fishing and crabbing.

The island's sole thoroughfare is ideal for walking, jogging or biking. Kayaking lessons are available on the island along with equipment rentals. Para-sailing and sightseeing tours by boat are also available. This home is equipped with all modern living facilities. Linens, bedding, cooking utensils and paper products are included. Gas grill is also available for a small fee to cover gas use and cleaning.

Travel by boat to Kiawah and Seabrook Island in just minutes.

**Please note that the home has an occupied 'mother-in-law' suite that is fully equipped with its own household amenities and separate side entrance. This portion of the home is not accessible to vacationing renters. However, all of the rooms listed here as photos or in the description ARE included in the vacation rental. The home's total living space is ~4800sqft

relax by the water

  • 4 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend at the house. The location was very good, easy access to the beach and downtown Charleston. Sitting down on the dock was very peaceful. I was surprised how quiet it was there the whole time. We would consider renting again if we get back to Charleston

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. House is spacious and the views of the back creek and surrounding marsh are terrific. Great to sit on the screened in porch or in the living room and take in. House is only about a mile from Folly Beach, just out of golf cart range, but other than Saturdays it wasn't too hard to find parking down there. Good proximity to downtown Charleston and other points in the area. Plenty of shopping and dining in the area as Folly Road has most everything you could need.

Towels and linens were provided and the linens were nice. We've rented a few homes over the years and this was a great experience.

Great place to stay a few small updates would make it awesome!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family vacation with 6 adults and 1 infant and it was a great time. The house has ample room to spread out or gather as a group. We had a few issues with the cook top not heating enough to boil water. Other than that everything serves its purpose. Although we did see the pictures prior when you stay in a beach town you kind of expect the house to portray that feeling its more of an eclectic grandma style. A few minor maintenance updates with a nice coat of paint on the outside stuff would make it a real gem!

A great house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for our family while we were in town for a wedding. There was more room than we needed but we had our lively 3 year old grandson along so the extra space was wonderful. The house is nicely decorated but time worn enough that weren't afraid to touch or use anything! The air conditioning worked great to cool us off from the humid Charleston weather, ceiling fans in most rooms helped also, as did the high ceilings. The kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes and such. Could have used a few baking pans but as I did not do much cooking that was not an issue. The view from the back of the house was beautiful and we were sorry we had very little time to enjoy the dock. All in all, I would definitely recommend this rental. Be aware, however, that there are a lot of steps to get into the house as well as steep stairs up to the second and third bedrooms. We definitely got our workout!
