Overview

About the property

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

Come to Folly Beach to create your next vacation memories!

Our three-bedroom, three-bath, 1500 square foot one-level condo is ready to offer you the best of all worlds - beach, golf, and river!

Spectacular views of Folly River await you. Absolutely picture-perfect sunsets from our large screened balcony will cap a wonderful day taking advantage of all that Folly Beach and Charleston has to offer.

*The Beach: The beach is a 15-minute leisurely stroll through the eclectic town of Folly Beach.

*The Condo: Take pleasure in all that 3C has to offer. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV with a DVD player and cable. Challenge your kids to a provided board game or just watch the world go by. Play your favorite tunes on the iPod docking station. Everything you need to prepare anything from a snack to a surf and turf is provided in the fully-equipped kitchen. You can even grill the turf on the BBQ on the balcony. The condo has hardwood laminate flooring throughout for a bright, clean feel. Enjoy the privacy of the master bedroom - the king-size bed, private en suite bathroom with a relaxing whirlpool tub AND wall-mounted hand-held shower, and its own sliding door access to the screened porch will make you feel like royalty. The two additional bedrooms have queen-size beds and one room has its own bathroom (with updated fixtures) with a shower. All linen and bedding is supplied and is of high quality. Beach towels are provided and you can use the washer and dryer to wash out the salt and sand.

*The Town: Folly Beach is but a five minute walk from the condo. Leave your car behind and forget about driving! Some of Folly Beach’s attractions include shopping and a variety of restaurants and bars. From fresh seafood on the pier to fresh-Mex in town, Folly is sure to please all palates. For those who wish to have some nighttime fun, Folly has a vibrant bar scene. If you prefer, put the kids to bed early and relax on the balcony. The condo offers a quiet haven where you can listen to the nighttime sounds, smell the salt air, watch the moon on the river, and enjoy a glass of wine.

*Charleston: Have you enjoyed all that Folly Beach has to offer? Then head to Charleston, a ten-minute drive away. Conde-Naste magazine named Charleston the best place to visit on the East Coast. Beautifully treed Battery Park is a great starting point for a wonderful day of sightseeing. A downtown bazaar offers hand-made crafts and you can watch locals weaving sweet grass into baskets. There are vendors offering all kinds of things from souvenirs, to home cooked goods, artwork, and jewelry. Go antiquing on King Street or drive around and look at the beautiful mansions on Rainbow Row. Charleston has a myriad of historical attractions such as Fort Sumter and the USS Yorktown. If your idea of a vacation is walking lush greens, there are also plenty of first class golf courses within minutes of the condo and Charleston. Tired of cooking at the condo? Charleston offers everything from cool pubs to world class dining with award winning chefs.

*The Difference: The pier at Folly Beach provides a spot for fishing and walking, an open-air restaurant, and a covered picnicking spot. If you don’t want to embarrass yourself fishing in front of the locals, you need not go further than Turn of River. The condo features a private dock from which you or your kids can fish, drop your crab-pots, or test your luck at shrimping with your net. Prepare your catch and picnic on the dock. Rent a boat from town and go exploring. The complex is between protected tidal marshlands, so views are magnificent out of the front door or from the balcony, where you can watch the dolphins feed and play in the Folly River!

There are plenty of reasons to visit Turn of River at Folly Beach and we hope you make our condo your home away from home while enjoying a well-deserved vacation. A covered parking space will be yours to use during your visit, with additional parking outside. There are carts to load up your gear for the elevator ride up to the third floor!

We look forward to sharing our small piece of “The Edge of America” with you, and hope that you will look back on your stay at Folly Beach as one of the best vacations you have ever had.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t begin to describe how much we look forward to our annual folly beach trip. Collette and Pierre are wonderful ( this was our 4th year with them) as are the other owners we meet at the condo. We are a big family with 4 wild little ones . We are always welcomed and other owners have helped my kids cast nets, taught them about different fish we caught and fished a beloved stuffed animal out of the river! You will feel welcomed! The condo has everything you need. The kitchen is stocked very well. It’s such a cozy laid back place. Our absolute favorite thing to do is rush back before sunset grab a cocktail and sit on the screened i porch to watch the sunset. I have yet to find anything more beautiful. For sunrise be sure to get up early and walk to lost dog while watching the sunrise ( or grab a cup of coffee and watch it from the front door) ahhhh..... Whatever time it is sit back with a drink in hand and watch the dolphins out the window. Life does not get much better!

Bedrooms: there are 3 bedrooms. The master is huge and opens to the screened in porch - the bed is very comfortable ( all of them are ! )

The master bath has a big huge tub which is wonderful after a cold day at the beach and can fit a couple kids in it too ( it’s one of the luxuries for us on our trip ) there are 2 other bedrooms both with double beds. If your kids are anything like mine life is much more pleasant when they don’t share a bed so you can fit 2 twin air beds in one of the bedrooms ( just FYI ) - bc no im not sharing that lovely master bedroom. Ha ha. There also is a pack n play that comes with the condo if you have little ones/ High chair/ stroller. The walk to the beach is wonderful - it really takes no time at all and feels great. The decor is great even candles and twinkle lights. There are quite a few board games as well. We come in the off season and so we spend time at the beach but also explore other activities. Especially with kiddos.

- fishing on the condo pier ( sting rays galore!)

- county park beach - Love!

- pirate playground (kept ALL my kids age 3-13 happy basketball courts: amazing pirate themed pretend play playground)

- the big folly beach pier

-downtown Charleston! Horse carriage & hymanns

- walk to see Morris lighthouse

- take a kayak or dolphin tour to Morris Island it was worth the money!

- jack of the cups is a fun find for us on a date night!

- make sure to hit up Crosby’s fish store daily for your dinner !

ENJOY your trip!!

Great place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Folly and this location was perfect for walking to restaurants, the beach and sightseeing in Charleston. It was spacious, clean and family friendly. We especially enjoyed the screened porch overlooking the river. It was great for cocktails and dolphin watching. We will definitely rent from Colette and Pierre again!

Beautiful and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Close to Folly Beach and not far from Charleston. Beautiful living space. Convenient elevator and luggage carts. Had some issues with the air conditioning but not uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us. The air conditioner is less than five years old and unfortunately when it is set very low and runs continuously, the coils freeze. With the cooler nights, the unit doesn't have a chance to cycle down. We are servicing the unit to make sure all is good and have replaced the thermostat to prevent inappropriately low cooling settings.

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

Good place. Beach is not far -- a pleasant 10-12 minute walk over a bridge with some traffic. Lovely views of the bay and great amount of space. The pool was unfortunately not operational while we were there following the storm, and my friends mentioned that their beds were a bit uncomfortable. I do think that after all the fees, it is a tad overpriced. But it's a nice place.

Owner's Response: Since VRBO added their service charge and we have to collect accommodation taxes, it definitely adds up. The good news is it’s still cheaper than a hotel and far roomier. We were very lucky that the pool was the only issue after the hurricane. As far as the bed comfort, that is always a matter of personal preference.
