Property description

Marsh Gayz is a private river front home on the Folly River with a deep water dock tucked away on Tabby Island, a secluded waterfront neighborhood of Folly Beach, South Carolina. Surrounded by age old live oaks, saltmarsh meadows and the wide waters of the Folly River, this beautiful home features spectacular private views of the Low Country at its finest. Although sequestered away from the main beach drag, it’s still only a short stroll to the beach and the famed surfer’s paradise known as the “Washout.” The quaint commercial district of Center Street and Folly Landing, with its many restaurants, shops, night clubs and parks, is also just a short bicycle, drive or boat ride away. You can easily launch your boat at the landing and dock in your own backyard during your stay 24/7. Historic downtown Charleston, SC is a scenic 15-20 minute hop over the island connector that characterize this part of the East Coast.

Unlike many coastal homes, only four steps up takes you to the haven within. This single story dwelling sleeps (8) people with three bedrooms and 3 full baths (one with a deep Jacuzzi tub). The roomy master suite has a sweeping view of the river via glass sliders that open onto the wide back deck. A spacious great room with beautiful Morris Island brick gas fireplace, gaming table and separate walk-in bar embraces even more stunning views of the river. The large well-equipped kitchen comes complete with an island, dishwasher, microwave, multiple tools for the culinary inclined and a large dining table for seating 8 or more. A small study/shell room can be found off the main entryway, and there is also full laundry facility and a large newly freshened up garage fully stocked with all the beach or fishing gear you need. This home contains all the amenities including wireless high speed Internet, Cable TV, 52” flat screen TV, DVD player, sound dock for I Pods, ceiling fans, and central heating and air conditioning (brand new system installing April 2016).

Although the house is a sanctuary in itself, it’s really all about the great outdoors. A spacious sundeck spans the entire back of the house and leads you across the lawn to a short railed dock ending at the river. The dock facility has both floating and stationary platforms, and is complete with a shaded area and bench seats, fish cleaning station with sink, water and power. There is also a paved patio area in the back yard that is perfect for oyster roasts, shrimp or crab boils and other seafood affairs with a stainless table, sink with running water and portable cooker and pots, shell barrels and a customized fire pit made special for Marsh Gayz for adding a little late night ambiance or roasting marshmallows.

Marsh Gayz is an ideal getaway for families or friends who have an interest in all of the watersports delights that the river world offers, while fish, crabs, clams and oysters can be caught or found right out the back door! With amazing sunsets to the west, the statuesque Morris Island Lighthouse to the east and miles of river and marsh in between, one could not want more for a perfect summertime setting. It’s also an excellent venue for small quiet gatherings whether for family vacations, reunions, graduations, special events, small weddings or housing wedding guests (additional fee applicable) Not available for renters under 25 years of age.

If you're looking for a private river front home with a deep water dock on Folly Beach, we invite you to consider Marsh Gayz – a by-owner private vacation rental on the South Carolina coast. Relax your cares away or take a running splash off the dock, and enjoy the peaceful serenity and nature of Marsh Gayz where the loudest thing you'll hear is the soothing sound of the river, and the occasional blow of hello from our regular porpoise friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Marsha Pardee, M.Sc. is a marine ecologist who works as an independent consultant specializing in environmental management, eco-tourism and many other conservation related projects and programs. Although raised on Folly, she lives in the Turks and Caicos Islands and works throughout the Caribbean region, but enjoys coming back 'home' for the holidays and especially for shrimp season in the Fall.

Why the Owner Chose Folly Beach, SC, USA:
I was raised on Folly Beach, moving into this house as a young child. I have a love for all things in the water so being raised on the water only grew my passion for my profession.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can see historical Morris Island Lighthouse from the dock in the distance but it is a short ride to go see it and park then walk 1/4 mile to the beach. While you can enjoy kayaking on the water, you can also walk a few steps to get to the beach or bicycle to Center Street. Folly have a great fishing pier Edwin S. Taylor managed by the County Park System. There is dining and a ship store too. This property is managed by Property Manager extraordinaire, Natalie Staropoli.
