Private Folly Nature Preserve

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful location. Very private but easy to access. Marshlands and dock area are full of birds (egrets, herons, pelicans). Birds nesting in tucked away clearings along the driveway too. Crabbing and digging for oysters right out back. Fishing right off the dock, or rent a kayak and venture out into the estuary. Follow the winding river towards the lighthouse (watch the tides!). Beach is only a couple of steps across the road in a very quiet and unpopulated beachfront. Restaurants, bars with live entertainment, tourist shops at the town center are very close by.

House is very comfortable and can easily accommodate a family of 6 or 3 couples. Kitchen is well-stocked and everything needed for large family meals. Master bathroom is spacious with an outstanding shower. Both a screened porch and deck area overlooking the estuary. Plenty of room inside and out.

Owner is helpful and responsive answering questions, providing recommendations on area restaurants and activities. Rental transaction was easy and free from hassle.

This place is highly recommended and we will likely return for another stay.

Lovely, Comfortable Rental House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4-night stay on Folly Beach at this secluded rental location. The house is overall well maintained and a comfortable layout. Having everything on one floor is a plus. The marsh views from the house and dock are pretty amazing. There is plenty of room in this house for a larger family or group. It was too cold in January to enjoy the screened porch, but from past trips to Folly, we know that is a "must" when the weather warms up and the bugs begin to fly around. The owner was responsive to our questions and good to work with. Recommended!

Great, quiet qetaway

  • 4 of 5

This property is one of the best we've ever visited on Folly Beach. It's secluded and quiet. Our boys were more interested in fishing than beaching, so we loved having the dock (though it's in a state of disrepair). The house is clean, well equipped, and very cozy. The beach is just a short walk away, and the house is located in a more quiet area---so there was no crowding on the beach, even during Memorial Day weekend. Would definitely recommend to others.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, all the kids spent most of the time on the dock when we weren't at the beach. Gorgeous views, well stocked kitchen, lots of towels, and clean. Will definitely come again

Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here during our first visit to Folly Beach. For us, the best feature was it's location - seclusion and dock into the deep water while being a two block walk to the ocean. The home is lovely and layout makes for easy access to all areas of the home. The master bath is especially nice. All necessary amenities were on hand except a hair dryer (bring your own) and the coffee pot needed repair. We dug for oysters and caught crabs off the back dock for a wonderful seafood dinner. A walk or quick bike ride to town offers restaurants with great food and drink. While walking the south end of the beach at high tide, we watched surfers navigate the huge waves. Sitting on the back deck in the evening offers a beautiful sunset view. The deck and dock railings need some repair and the home could use a thorough Spring cleaning. Overall, our experience staying in this home was 5 star. We hope to return.
