The River Dolphin is located in the quaint community of Waters Edge where everything is easy going! This particular three-story townhouse is located on the banks of the gorgeous Folly River which separates Folly Beach from the mainland. The river feeds the surrounding marshland and The River Dolphin is perfectly situated for you to view from your living room or one of two river-view porches. The first level of The River Dolphin is dedicated to a three-car garage, linear garage with interior access to the home. The second level houses an open kitchen that flows into the dining area and living room. Whispering pastel colors regularly associated with coastal life blossom throughout while polished wooden floors and modern appliances and countertops provide a great balance to the home. Images of the coastal paradise in which you are immersing yourself decorate the walls and tables. The living room is separated from the screened-in porch only by windows and a sliding glass door. The porch itself is furnished with a four-person table with standing room provided on the remaining half. There is also a bedroom and full bath located on this level.

The top floor houses the two remaining bedrooms. Each has its own full bath. The master bedroom, however, has a stand-alone shower, a large walk-in closet, a his/her sink and a spacious tub for ultimate relaxation. It also has access to a private, open air balcony with plenty of room to catch some afternoon sun while enjoying Folly River view and the salty breeze. The Waters Edge community is tucked away from the hustle and traffic of Folly Beach but is close enough for a bike ride or extended walk to all of the dining and shopping, if you were so inclined. It is equally convenient to the actual sand and surf of Folly Beach, or you can simply load up the car and cruise a few blocks to the beach spot of your choice.

Visiting historic Charleston for the day? Walk the Charleston Battery, explore the Market, picnic at Waterfront Park, or take a horse drawn carriage ride through the Holy City. If there is time, visit an antebellum mansion or Plantation, adventure to the Aquarium, stop at a local hot spot to catch the latest Charleston gossip, or take a sunset cruise in Charleston Harbor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The condo was really very, very nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the decor perfect! The location was perfect for getting to Folly Beach and the local restaurants - easy walking distance. The balcony overlooking the marsh was very relaxing for enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day! I would definitely reserve again.

Your family will love it!!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place and the location was great!! We could walk to the beach and all the downtown shops and restaurants. The only reason I rated a 4 instead of a 5 was the place could use a deep cleaning, but with that said I would definitely rent it again.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, Thanks for the review! The River Dolphin is in a perfect location. So close to the beach and downtown area but set back from everything to allow for a peaceful vacation. We make sure that the homes that we manage get deep cleans at least twice a year in addition to the cleaning service at guest departure. We are sorry that the cleaning wasn't up to par, and will have to get another deep clean scheduled! If you visit Folly Beach again, don't hesitate to reach out! We'd love to have you stay with us again. -The Charleston Coast Vacations Team

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The home was great! The only issue we had was the furniture was not the best. There was not one comfortable chair to set in. The porch was amazing but again there was not chairs to sit In.

Owner's Response: So glad everyone had a great time! The River Dolphin is located in the heart of Folly Beach! Overflow parking available with larger vehicles. We suggest planning on 3 vehicles at the most. Thank you.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at this rental! My kids had a great time going back and forth between the pool and the beach. The house was beautiful and we had everything we needed. We were very close to Charleston too.

Simmons Family Beach Christmas 2016

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this property and I am in love. I have been coming to Folly since I was a small child. My parents used to rent a house on front beach for up to a month each summer. The house we rented for years was taken by Hurricane Hugo. Since then we have not been back to stay for more than a couple days at the Holiday Inn (now Tides). I have always wanted to spend Christmas at the beach and this year I did it. It was wonderful. The weather was nice and my family loved spending Christmas Eve with me at the River Dolphin. Everyone says the place is ME!! I will be back again.

Nice place for our girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The River Dolphin was nice! We had 7 girls there for a bachelorette party weekend! The house is walking distance to the bars and restaurants as well as to the beach. It is closer to the bars and restaurants than it is to the beach. Although, basically the bars and restaurants are just between the house and the beach. House on one end and beach on the other end. So, if you stayed closer to the beach you would still be very close to the bars and restaurants too. From the house, the walk to the start of the bars and restaurants is about 5 minutes and the walk to the beach is about 10 minutes. We did not rent a golf cart and we didn't really need one, but I think it would be a good idea if you are going to go to the beach every day. We stayed four nights and only went to the beach 2 days. Dunes Properties said you can get a discount on the golf cart if you mention Dunes Properties. The house was plenty big enough for everyone. It was nice having 3 full bathrooms! The house sleeps 10, but I think 10 adults would be a little too full. You could make it work though! We were able to squeeze 3 vehicles in the garage for one night, but it is only meant for two vehicles and a golf cart. It is one long narrow garage where you have to double park. You cannot park side-by-side. There really also isn't any street parking. There were a few spaces that looked like visitor parking, but I'm not exactly sure that they were intended for that. The garage door was not working properly and I notified Dunes Properties. They were supposed to be getting someone to fix it. It would open just fine, but it would not close all the way, unless we did a little trick. We were able to get it closed by making it go down, stopping it midway, then making it go up and stopping it, and then making it go down again. Then it would close all the way. The only problem was we had to have someone stay in the garage to do that, then go back up through the house and out the front door to make sure all the doors were locked. We had to close the garage door from inside the garage. We could not do it from outside the garage. Just a little inconvenience, but no big deal. At least we were able to get the door closed! The porch off of the living room is screened in, which was really nice! I think the bugs would be really bad, if it wasn't screened in. The cost to UberXL downtown Charleston on Friday night for 6 people was about $35. The cost to Uber home for 3 people was only $16.

Notes

  • When booking a reservation for any of our properties, your reservation will automatically include a $69 Red Sky Damage Deposit Waiver. This is an insurance policy that covers up to $3,000.00 in accidental damages to the vacation rental property. We find that this allows out guests to have a worry free stay, as both the guests and the property owners are protected from unwanted expenses when damages occur. If you wish to remove the Damage Deposit Waiver, then a $3,000.00 deposit is required in its place.
