About Dr. Darlana Fiehtsam (Feet sum)

I Love Folly Beach! I have renamed my home 'Seaspirit' (formally 'Venus') at the Edge of America in a fabulous beach town called home for many years. I started renting my house to help my son get through college...and he has graduated now!! Now I rent it out to be free to do more volunteer work and give back to my community! I retired as a psychotherapist and now I work as a real estate agent, helping families find their Dream Home near the beach and in Charleston! I love to walk on the beach and I love boogie boarding in the ocean every day of the summer. I hope that you and your family will enjoy my home, have fun, make loving, silly beach memories together, and treasure your time and life...even for just a week at one of the best beaches in America.

Dr. Darlana Fiehtsam (Feet sum) purchased this house in 1999

Why Dr. Darlana Fiehtsam (Feet sum) chose Folly Beach

Having traveled to many beaches in the United States, Mexico, Greece, and even the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, Folly Beach remains my absolute favorite. The Secret: I LOVE the WAVES!!! Not too little, not too big, just right for body surfing, floating around, boogie boarding, skim boarding, and even real surfing. The sand is fine and shell hunting is even a local favorite! Folly is home to many surfers & East Coast surf contests, with lessons available to beginners! Folly is a fun beach town, close to Charleston, which is the #1 tourist destination in America for so many reasons. Folly is best known for it's hospitality, beautiful beach, fun nightlife. The serene Lowcountry skies, with transformative sunrises and sunsets are all enchanting. An evening walk on the beach, on a moonlit night, with the moonbeans guiding your way and many stars shining their bright lights along the shoreline is memorable for all ages.

What makes this house unique

Awesome beach, just a block away. My house is unique in being just a block off the beach, but right on the marsh, so you can enjoy peace and quiet and all of the fun of a beach town, just down the street. Most people do not know this street exists on Folly--it is a quiet secret, so close to everything.

Home like feeling.....

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house for large groups. Lots of room to spread out with the front porch, deck and screened porch. The home has a very comfortable and relaxing feeling. Nice furniture and comfortable bedrooms. All of our quests commented how nice of house it was.

Dr. Darcy is great person to rent from. She was always very accommodating if we had a question.

Very roomy. Close walk to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We appreciated the six bedrooms. The kitchen was quite adequate for cooking our meals. The dining table was large enough for a group of nine. We appreciated the golf cart to take a ride to the beach and to the children’s playground. All in all we had a very enjoyable week.

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our trip. No complaints. It’s a quick trip over to Charleston and other local sites. Was too cold to go to beach, but we made it there one day just to see it.

Car: recommended

This fabulous property is one street off the ocean. The walk to the beach is about the length of 7 houses before you sink your feet in the sand. A golf cart is available for most vacationers to make that short walk easy with beach gear! The house is on a tidal creek with the marsh in the back, making a serene setting for island nights. The back porch is both screened in and open to the sky for lively conversations and intimate moments looking up at the stars! You can hear the ocean tide from the front porch, which is a great morning opener. Folly nightlife includes live bands and/or musicians almost nightly. The Folly marina, only 3 blocks away, offers daytime or sunset sailboat excursions and fishing trips locally or for adventurers, out to the ocean for deep sea fishing (very fun!). Downtown Charleston is a 20 minute drive, the #1 tourist destination in America, known for its hospitality, a major foodie destination, quaint architecture, historical tours and carriage rides, and fabulous shopping, too! Your family or friends may also enjoy the local Plantations with beautiful gardens or even tours of the many historical churches. If you stay in Folly the whole week, don't miss the fabulous sunrises on front beach and spectacular sunsets, especially from the marina on the Folly river.
