About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to our fabulous one-level, three-bedroom, three-bath Folly Beach home at Turn of River! If you are looking for something a little different than the usual beach-themed condo, THIS IS IT! We purchased this spacious 1,500 s.f. condo, (completely unfurnished), and fully renovated and decorated it in a fun, bright contemporary décor. Since then we have made many more improvements like adding a new HVAC unit, new dishwasher, adding ceramic tile floors in all the living areas and in 2015 we totally remodeled all three bathrooms and the kitchen. In the bathrooms we added new tiled showers with new vanities, fixtures and tile floors and we modernized the kitchen with all new cabinet doors, countertops and ceramic tile backsplash. Appliances in the condo include a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and filtered water through the door, dishwasher, electric stove, and a full-sized washer and dryer. You will also enjoy the premium pillow-top bedding in the twin and queen bedrooms and the new memory foam mattress in the king bedroom. There are 4 flat-screen televisions, 2 DVD players, a stereo system with iPod adapter, and all small kitchen appliances and cookware provided for your enjoyment.

You will find our professionally decorated condo comfortable and welcoming with lots of personality. It is just waiting for you to relax and put your feet up while watching the 40” Sony Bravia HDTV or listening to your own iPod connected to the stereo system. You can also use the DVD player to watch your favorite movies or some of ours. Bring your laptop if you have to stay “plugged in” to the real world, and log on to the free DSL Wi-Fi service in the condo. The living room, with its large windows facing the Folly River and access to the screened porch, is open to the dining room where you will enjoy your meals at the contemporary glass-topped table with seating for six. We have a couple of folding dining chairs available if you have guests for dinner. The adjacent kitchen offers a pass-thru to the dining room so that the cook can still enjoy the views.

The master bedroom suite welcomes you with a king-size bed with designer linens and flat-screen TV as well as your own private bath and a private entrance onto the screened porch. The queen bedroom also offers premium bed linens, a flat-screen TV and a little reading nook. Your own private bath will provide a large, walk-in tiled shower and plush towels. The third bedroom with twin beds will keep the kids happy with their own flat-screen TV with built-in DVD player. A third bathroom just outside this bedroom provides a full tiled shower/tub with thick towels.

The views from Turn of River #2C are truly amazing and the ocean breezes will keep you cool as you enjoy your morning coffee or perhaps an evening cocktail on the screened porch. Sunsets are spectacular and the sailboats are plentiful! Dolphins parade up and down the Folly River for your viewing pleasure and Great White Egrets and other local birds routinely fish in the tidal pool at low tide just beside the condo. You may also see a kayaking class in session or some fishing boats heading up the river for a day’s outing.

You are invited to visit the Turn of River dock to try your hand at crabbing or fishing but if that seems like too much effort, just drop in at the pool for a quick dip or a leisurely session of sunning and novel-reading in the chaise lounges. Once you begin to feel the need to venture beyond the beauty of the Folly River, you can stroll to the beach in about 10-15 minutes or take a ride on your bicycle and get there in half the time. Along the way, you can stop off for a bite to eat or take care of that “retail therapy” need in the funky little town of Folly Beach. Enjoy a stroll on the Folly Pier and see what the fisherman are catching or comb the white-sand beaches looking for that special shell to take home as a memento of your Folly Beach vacation. Of course, you can always just stretch out on your beach towels and soak up some sun and relaxation.

You will also want to drive the 8 miles into the City of Charleston for a little local culture infusion. There is truly something for everyone in Charleston, including the Straw Market where locals weave incredible grass baskets, world-class restaurants, antiquing, King Street shopping, horse and carriage rides, historic plantations, the Battery, Patriot’s Point, golf courses, outlet shopping, Charleston Harbor, ferry rides to Fort Sumter, and LOTS more.

Upon your arrival at Turn of River, you will find two designated parking spaces in the garage on the ground floor for your use. There you can load all your gear into one of the provided carts and wheel it up on the elevator to 2C where your best-ever Folly Beach vacation is about to begin.

About Carolyn McDonald

We bought our condo at Turn of River after visiting the Charleston coastal area many times over the years. We always loved staying at Folly Beach the most!

Carolyn McDonald purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carolyn McDonald chose Charleston Area

We had actually rented a condo at Turn of River two different times in the past and when we found this one on the market, we knew it was the one for us. We enjoy watching for dolphins and observing the sea birds from the porch.

What makes this condo unique

We love the closeness to the beach and to the restaurants in town. We ride our bikes or walk every day when we are there. The best time of day at Turn of River 2C for us has to be watching the gorgeous sunsets!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Now that we are back from our travels, I feel I must write to you. Susan and I have been renting condos for 15 years from 3 days to 3 months. In all that time, we have never had a better provisioned, a more thoughtfully furnished, and an easier arrival and departure experience. Plus the location was great. In addition, dealing with you in the process was easy, pleasant and efficient.

Thank you for making the beginning of our vacation so pleasant. We would be pleased if you wished to share this e-mail with anyone.

Perfect...that about covers it!

This condo is the perfect place to stay for your Folly Beach vacation. Clean, comfortable and convenient. The photos only tell part of the story as everything was top being at home but with a great view of the river. We were able to enjoy seeing dolphins every morning and evening. The location is great...not in the middle of all the congestion you find once you cross the bridge. A quick walk over the bridge will get you to the heart of Folly Beach. There are many great places to eat that are an easy personal favorite was the Lost Dog. Pack your bags and bring the'll love it. Everything you need is at the condo...even beach toys. Only a short drive to the heart of Charleston...park at the visitors center and catch a tour or trolley from there to learn about all of the interesting history of the area. Absolutely loved this condo!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This condo is all you could want and more. It is very spacious, and the decorating theme is spot on. My two friends and I loved the three baths. It gave each of us a separate place to shower and be ready at the same time. The view is everything you could ask for. Dinner on the screened end porch, while the sun was going down, was a perfect way to end a busy afternoon of sightseeing. You cannot go wrong renting this vacation home.

It was terrific. Excellent place to stay, visit Folly Beach, Charleston area. Very Clean, neat condo. Well balanced for relaxing after a busy day sightseeing, etc. Elevator was great for senior citizens. Kitchen, bathrooms all well supplied. Carolyn was fantastic with helping and giving good info for things to do and see in the area. Her husband gave me info on Golf courses I could play. We will definitely stay here again, when in the area. My brother and wife loved it also, was impressed how well things were handled.

absolutely loved this condo! Carolyn gave us excellent instructions and guide to grocery, etc. on our way in so we arrived and it was like being at home! The pictures don't lie. The condo is beautiful, views are lovely, everything is new, in fantastic shape. Every detail is impeccable. The decor, kitchen supplies, comfy beds, quality linens and towels; everything is what I would want a guest to have if they were staying at my home.

we hope to come back and stay here again. thanks Carolyn for a wonderful experience!

LOVE this Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED spending a few days in Folly Beach at Turn of River #2C!! First, Carolyn, is the BEST! Very good communicator! We arrived after the Hurricane and was kept informed about any damage and what to expect when we got there. (There was no damage to her property...thank goodness). She even helped with arrangements for us when our condo in Hilton Head was not going to open from the hurricane and we needed to stay a couple of extra days. This amazing condo was perfect for our family! Very clean, decorated to perfection, and was stocked with everything you would need in the kitchen! Perfect for my mom who suffers from arthritis and can not walk upstairs...Love the elevator!! The location is awesome! Close to Charleston, but far enough away to give it that relaxed beach fill! We would LOVE to get to come again! THANK YOU for everything!!

The pictures don't lie. Everything was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at this wonderful condo. Everything was just as pictured; clean, comfortable, and so well equipped. We can't say enough about our stay in Folly Beach. The location was great to be able to experience Charleston and still enjoy the quiet location of the condo. The owner was very helpful and since we arrived the week after Hurricane Matthew, we were concerned about damage, she made sure we knew everything was up and running before our arrival. The furnishings and beds were very comfortable. We didn't have to think about anything, everything was there for us and more. Highly recommend this vacation rental and would definitely book again if in the area. 5 Stars
