Best of Both Worlds: Deep Water Dock with Kayaks & only 150 yards to the beach!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

With an easy 150 yard walk to the beach, ocean views and a deepwater dock with private pier head and floating dock, Reel Blessed has it all. Located in the popular “Washout” area, the house is perfectly situated on one of the narrowest parts of the island offering views of the ocean, Morris Island Light house and the Folly River. Within minutes of arriving, you can be sunbathing on the beach, fishing or crabbing from the dock or enjoying the breathtaking sunsets from the deck. You can also bring your boat or jet skis for your own fun on the water. In addition, you are just 2 miles from Folly’s restaurants and nightlife and 20 minutes from historic downtown Charleston.

The house has 3 bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed, 27” TV. The second bedroom has two double beds and a 19” TV. These two bedrooms are connected by a Jack and Jill style bathroom with a ceramic tile walk in shower. The third bedroom has a queen bed, overlooks the Folly River and is adjacent to the 2nd bathroom. A spacious living area overlooks the Folly River and the Morris Island Lighthouse and is appointed with a couch, loveseat and a 32” TV. The kitchen is fully equipped. Outside you have a deck just off the living area with views of the Folly River, Morris Island Lighthouse and the ocean. The house is elevated and there is seating under the house (one of our favorite places to hang out). The dock has a private pier head and a floater. A crab trap, crab nets a few fishing poles and a 2 person Kayak are usually available but cannot be guaranteed. We also provide Wireless internet, cable TV and a gas grill. Additional photographs are available under “Links to more information”.

Please note that this is the owner’s personal home and will be rented only to family groups (8 people or less). Houseparties, weddings & other large events are not permitted. Due to Insurance regulations, a signed and completed rental agreement must be completed and returned prior to completion of the booking process. A copy is available to view on the link to additional pictures below.

For Boaters

Reel Blessed is located on a creek just off of the Folly River, 2 miles North of the Folly boat landing. Our floating dock is 10’x14’ and has approximately 2’ of water at low tide*. The dock is equipped with fresh water and power. We have accommodated boats up to 21’. Larger boats may be possible but could be restricted by draft at low tide. Please provide your boat information on the rental agreement or give us a call with any specific questions.

A house in a quiet area on deep water with easy beach access and just minutes away from Historic Charleston, dining and nightlife – is rare. I’m sure you’ll find Reel Blessed is the best of both worlds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was looking forward to a peaceful visit and was NOT disappointed! From our first night, I felt more at home than anywhere else other than my childhood home. Reading a book and listening to the breeze on the water will be a happy memory I will always keep close. I also appreciated all of the small touches and toiletries we found when we arrived. Too many great memories to list but they will always be remembered.

Excellent home, wonderfully and casually furnished and perfect getaway

The views of the river from the rear and ocean from the front are inviting and ever changing, offering opportunity for relaxation and interesting conversations. We had a fabulous time and will definitely want to stay here again.

Charming home full of entertainment options

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time spent at this home. It is well furnished, has comfortable beds, and the kitchen has all the amenities one needs with a growing family.

There are many entertainment options provided: games, magazines, books, crabbing, fishing, kayaking, beach toys, etc.

The walk to the end of the pier was about the same distance as the walk to the beach.

Excellent Southern home

  • 5 of 5

My brothers and I had a great time! A perfect sized home for us 3 with plenty of Southern activities. The private dock is absolutely the best part! At the end of the dock, you can fish, set traps for crab, kayak and plain enjoy the marsh/river view. In the front, a short walk to the beach. The views from the home are excellent and invite sunset drinks

and star gazing in the evening. Ideal for small families or parties. Neighbors were great. Nice private location. We plan to make a yearly trip back and will definitely be staying in this home again!
