On occasion the surf can increase, offering a wonderful day of surfing, boogie boarding and body surfing. Center St. on Folly Beach offers a wide assortment of restaurants and shops. Have a dog? Most restaurants on Folly allow pets on leash, as long as they have outdoor seating. If you've never visited the Historic town of Charleston, hop in the car, it's only 15 quick minutes away.

Manager info

Surffish Realty, LLC.

About: This beautiful home is managed by Surffish Realty. Surffish Realty is locally owned and operated by Michael Ray. Michael was born and raised in Charleston SC and has owned and lived on Folly Beach with his family since 2006. A small boutique real estate company, Surffish Realty caters to the individual needs of homeowners and guests. Joined by wife Dianne in 2014, we hope to offer a more personal experience to those visiting Folly and the surrounding Charleston Area. We have raised our two children in the surf and pluff mud of the lowcountry and feel extremely blessed to live in this unique community. We are fortunate to be able to offer a variety of homes to those visiting our Island and are grateful to be of service.

Why Folly Beach, SC, USA:
River Retreat is a rare gem. This home is owned by a unique and loving couple who go to great lengths to offer a home that guests will want to return to time and time again. Jim and Lynn have enjoyed a lifetime of travel and once they discovered Folly Beach they knew they had found a community that they hoped to one day call home. This home on Tabby Drive spoke to them with it's shaded canopy, deep water dock, diverse bird life, inspiring sunsets, visiting dolphins, proximity to the beach and of course the character and charm of the home itself, decks and unique views from almost every room! The eclectic and laid back community sealed the deal. It is their hope that you too will love and appreciate their home and Island and hopefully make it a memory that you want to revisit time and time again.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Almost too numerous to list, this home has a plethora of unique qualities and benefits. It is located on Deep water which means you can bring boats, jet skis, kayaks, canoes, etc. If you don't have these items you can rent or just kick back on the covered dock and wait for the dolphins to come visit you! Manatees have even been known to make a swim by! The abundant and diverse bird life will keep you entertained for hours, with the occasional hawk and osprey making a grand appearance. If the beach is what you seek then you need only walk a short block over to the canopied public beach access at 13th block. The Atlantic Ocean will greet you with rolling waves and hard packed white sands that you can ride a bike or push a stroller on at low tides. If the Atlantic is in the mood to offer a bit of excitement, this stretch of beach is known to hold a nice swell when available, offering a fun ride for the more adventurous surfers in the crowd. Want to just relax? Stay on the property. Enjoy the privacy and three outdoor decks. Visit inside with family and friends while still feeling at one with nature while having the comfort of the indoors. Plenty of beach houses and interiors homes on the Island but VERY FEW who offer the Folly River with such a quick hop over to the beach access located on a more private stretch of the Island.
