About Judy H. Olson

My husband and I are retired - he from Sprint, me from teaching. We live in Bluff City, TN and our grown children live in Knoxville, TN. We love to travel (Italy our favorite, reminded us of Charleston) and spend time in the mountains where we live, and Folly where I'd like to live! We love sharing our condo with family and friends.

Judy H. Olson purchased this condo in 1998

Why Judy H. Olson chose Charleston Area

My husband and I were looking for property in SC or NC near the coast. We looked from Nags Head NC to Hilton Head SC. Folly Beach was by far our favorite - we call it a little Jimmy Buffett beach - unpretentious, but with restaurants like those in Charleston. Our grown children and grandchildren LOVE Folly Beach and Charleston too. There are so many things for children and adults to do. The beach isn't crowded and my husband loves to catch fish off the dock at the condo or out in his boat.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy cooking seafood while we are in Folly and have found that Crosby's Seafood (10 minutes down the road) has the best fresh seafood to buy. The Piggly Wiggly (12 minuites away) has affordable lobster and crab legs that they will cook ahead for you to pick up and take to the condo for dinner! Our grandchildren love the swimming pool - it's big and clean! They also love to go to the Water Park on James Island or to the children's attractions in Charleston. We enjoy driving over to the Mt. Pleasant/Sullivan's Island area (20 minutes away) to visit Ft. Moltrie, eat at one of the many great restaurants on Shem's Creek while watching the boats go by. Our favorite place to be on the beach is near the Pier. There we have bathrooms, restaurants, an outdoor bar at Tides hotel, life guards, beach chairs and jet skis to rent, etc. At the condo, we have an owner's dock where we adore sitting in the evening watching amazing sun sets. You can also leave crab traps hanging off this dock for later harvest! We also enjoy riding our bikes to the beach, on the beach and in the neighborhoods on Folly Beach. If you have a kayak or canoe, paddeling around in the creeks at the back of the condo is great fun.

Great location and plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Judy's condo with some friends - 9 of us total - and we had a blast. I knew that having that many people would likely be a tight squeeze; however, her property was the perfect size for us. The kitchen is updated from what the pictures show and had everything we needed to cook in the evenings. We could not get over how relaxing it was to sit on the porch. We saw dolphins every single day, and for us Michiganders, it just made our stay that much more enjoyable and entertaining. The beach was a beautiful, quick and easy walk and downtown Charleston was a manageable 20 minute drive away. Throughout the whole registration process up until we left the condo, Judy was great to communicate with and was great at answering the many questions I had. Overall, this condo is in a great location and I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks again, Judy!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier . Rooms were so comfortable and spacious. We had a well stocked kitchen allowing us to fix breakfast for our grandson who attends the Citadel. This was a treat for him. We found this huge box of dominoes and had a fun time playing in the evenings. Would definitely go back. You won't be disappointed staying here. We hated our trip was a short one.

The only way my stay could have been better is if I could have stayed longer. My second time leasing Judy's wonderful villa; already looking to my next visit. (I love to cook. The new kitchen is fabulous ☺️)

Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

Love, love, love this place. Already looking ahead to next summer and planning what week we can come in 2017. The porch is just great. Spent most of our time there when we were not out site seeing or at the beach. My granddaughters pack play fit well out there. Its a nice size room. But the whole place is plenty big.

Dolphins, blue herons, pelicans swim by throughout the day. Easy walk to Center street. The condo is very clean and well kept and Judy is extremely helpful. Great vacation. Thank you for offering such an amazing property...❤️
