About the property

House, 2 BR, Lrg. Family Room and Kitchen 1 Bath, Full Screened Porch & Sun Deck

The PALMETTO PEARL is not just another Beach House. It's an exceptional vacation experience. Privacy just 150 yards from the Ocean is hard to find in any Beach Community. That's only one of the many features The Palmetto Pearl has to offer. This absolutely unique original Folly Beach Property has been in our family for over 35 years and never before and was offered as a Vacation Rental until 2012 after undergoing a complete renovation. Since that time we have continued to upgrade the house on an annual basis. The Palmetto Pearl is set back from the roadway on a high lot surrounded by a small forest of Palmetto (Palm) Trees and Grande Oaks. The back deck offers fabulous sunset's with private views of the estuaries and salt marshes of the Folly River. With easy access to the Beach, the Palmetto Pearl is additionally less than a 1/4 mile from the "Washout" reportedly some of the best surfing on the east coast, and the venue for many sanctioned surfing competitions throughout the year. The Palmetto Pearl is in close proximity to all Folly River Recreational Activities such as para-sailing or kayaking and canoeing expeditions. As well, public tennis courts, a picnic area and a children's playground are all within 5 blocks of the house, only a short bike ride away or even shorter drive where parking is available. All of this and the comforts and privacy of a family home. Nestled among the Palmettos you can enjoy the Morning Sunrise or Afternoon Ocean Breezes on the screened porch that runs along the entire front of the house without baking in the heat of Charleston's summer sun or catch some afternoon rays or evening cocktails in complete privacy of the back sundeck which boasts a fully enclosed shower complete with a changing area, a gas grill, generous seating and plenty of space for entertaining or just lounging about. We also have 2 bikes for conveniently touring the island. Folly Island is pedestrian and bicycle friendly so motorists have become accustom to yielding to bicyclists on the island.

Keywords: Newly Renovated and Updated. This Authentic Folly Beach House has been in the family for over 35 years. Nestled in a forrest of Palms with private views of the Folly River's marshes and estuaries this home sits only 150 yards from the Beach Front. Convenience and Privacy make this a truly unique resort property.

Nice, relaxing stay for our honeymoon

The screened in front porch is where we spent most of our time when not on the beach or trying out the local restaurants! A big thank you to the Pilchers for sharing the Palmetto Pearl with us!

Great little place to get away.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well stocked with all the essentials. It was very comfortable and located just off of the beach. We rode the bikes from one end of the island to the other. Great vacation.

Comfortable, Clean, & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find for our family's 1st stay at Folly Beach! Our stay was all that we'd hoped for. The house was very clean and cozy. The beds were very comfortable as well. The front porch with the trees adding shade and privacy is wonderful. We enjoyed riding the bikes leisurely through the neighborhood streets, and it was a very short walk to easy beach access. We walked the fishing pier & explored the little beach town. The Washout was a great choice for dinner. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we appreciated the beach towels and extra blankets. Our reservation was professionally handled, and we would definitely recommend this for a family getaway spot. Thank you, Bob & Shirley, for sharing your home with us!
