3 bed, 2 bath cottage. Walk everywhere!!!!
Enjoy a simple, but comfortable, vintage Folly cottage. This original cottage, built in 1945, is one of the few left on Folly Beach. Back in the day locals would hand build their family camp on Folly Beach and enjoy the beauty of this barrier island - the beach, birds and breezes. Fishing, crabbing, shrimping and oystering were a way of life....... and still is. This wonderful low country life style is depicted in the art in the cottage.
Park your car and break out the flip-flops!! SunLove is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Center Street, which is packed with great restaurants, bars, and shopping. All things fun - the River Park, fishing pier, Bert's grocery, coffee shop and brewery are a short walk away. Yet, SunLove is far enough from the crowd to enjoy some down time. Grab a book and a beverage and enjoy one of the porches or the back patio. When you get your energy back up you can grill that fish you caught or cook up a mess of Frogmore Stew. No, no frogs are involved, mostly shrimp..I'll leave the recipe for you!
The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with the bedrooms upstairs.
**Please note - the stairs are steep and narrow and may not be applicable for small children, better for older children age 6 and above based on parents discretion**
There is an adjacent Studio to the Cottage that is reserved for the owner including 2 parking spaces to the far left of the Cottage. Our renters privacy is assured.
Bring your boat, your dog and your flip flops. Come enjoy a wonderful vacation in this vintage cottage which represents the joy, beauty and bounty of the low country.

About Jackie Flynt, owner
I Love the mysterious beauty and charm of the Charleston area. The moss laden oaks; egrets and herons fishing when the tide is out; dolphins jumping in the sparkling water; pelicans and gulls flying overhead; the dynamic tidal ebb and flow of the creeks and rivers. The people here are kind and humble; courteous and respectful. We want you to go first. We have soul and soul food! From red rice to local farm fresh veggies and to the best seafood, ever! You won't leave here hungry, that's for sure.
Why Jackie Flynt, owner chose Folly Beach
Want to park your car and walk everywhere? This is it. Want to vacation with your beloved pet and know they have a shady, fenced yard to play in? This is it. This older home is grandfathered and does not have to meet FEMA elevation levels. Because the back porch and deck are ground level, you can grill or read while your pet is safely fenced next to you.
What makes this House unique
Walk everywhere! Bring your dog! Bring your boat! Original vintage Folly island cottage. Fenced shady yard for pets.

Adorable house. Very clean and the perfect size
We loved our stay! Our family rated here over Easter and everything was top notch. Our children loved the fenced in backyard and spent most of their time out there. The beds we comfy and the house had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again when visiting folly.
A good beach cottage
We were nicely accommodated here! The owner has thought of everything a family might need for a beach vacation. A heads up ...The stairs are quite steep and were a little challenging for me to navigate with the boot I had to wear for my broken foot. Everyone else did fine on them.
An "oldie but goodie".
The SunLove beach cottage was quaint and clean. The mid-century decor and vibe of the cottage added nicely to the fun and relaxing atmosphere that Folly naturally provides. The location was perfect - only a few blocks to the restaurant, shops, and the beach - and yet was far enough away so you didn't get the noise and traffic of Center Street. There were only two slight "issues" that my husband and I had with the property: 1. the stairs were very narrow and steep up to the 2nd floor and 2. there was little to no counter space in the bathrooms which made it difficult to put on make-up or curl my hair. (Again, very minor issues.) Overall though, the cottage was great! The kitchen was well stocked with all of the necessary cooking essentials, and it was nice having a bathroom on both floors. Our dog, Grizzly, thoroughly enjoyed lounging in the fenced-in backyard when he wasn't sunbathing with us on the beach. The owner, Jackie, was a gem to work with as well. She was extremely responsive, answered all of our questions, and helped make our anniversary trip extra special. We would highly recommend this property to others and look forward to staying there again during our next trip to Folly!
Loved staying here
This year was the 5th year in a row staying at this property and we'll keep coming back as long as Jackie will have us! It is an adorable home and you really feel comfortable and cozy staying here. It's like a home away from home! The location is very convenient to both the beach and to Center Street where all of the restaurants, bars, and shops are located. You can walk everywhere! We love that we are able to bring our dogs with us. There's a nice screened in back porch and a fenced backyard that makes hanging out with your pups super easy. Jackie, the home owner, is the sweetest lady and is there for anything that you may need. I highly recommend this rental to others; you won't be sorry!
This was my first time using VRBO and a vacation rental. It was a positive experience and the numerous positive reviews for the SunLoveBeachCottage are all true. House is clean and well maintained, walking distance to everything, and Jacqueline and Donna were very helpful and responsive with any questions or concerns I initially had. I would absolutely return and recommend the SunLoveBeachCottage.
Great spot for a classic Folly Beach vacation
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) plus our 2 dogs had a wonderful time staying at Sun Love this past week. Jackie and Donna were great to work with throughout the booking process and kindly checked on us during the rental to be sure we had all we needed. The house is nicer and more spacious than the photos suggest, and it's new exterior paint looks great. The fenced-in yard suited our dogs very well. We loved how many beach supplies were available, including a cart to haul stuff to the beach. The screened porch out front was great for storing beach gear, and we enjoyed evenings on the back screened porch. I love to cook and was so happy to find a well-equipped kitchen with excellent cookware and supplies, including a few spices, salt and pepper, sugar, and oil. The gas stove is very new and immaculately clean, the dishes and glassware are very nice, and the cookware is in great shape. The kitchen was just a bit dark in terms of lighting, but I've stayed in many rentals and overall this was one of the nicest kitchens I've ever enjoyed. The bedrooms are spacious and work great for a family. There is a fine collection of books and movies, and my husband enjoyed teaching the kids to play chess. We would've enjoyed a few more board games, but ended up visiting the James Island Goodwill and scoring some games to keep us busy. We recommend Crosby's for fresh seafood and the Black Magic Cafe for breakfast. James Island County Park is worth a visit, too. Many thanks to Jackie and Donna for a lovely stay! We can't wait to return to SunLove Beach Cottage again!
Located between the river and the beach. 5 minute walk to both. 5 minute walk to Center street, which is packed with restaurants, bars and shopping. The public boat ramp and fishing pier are a few short blocks away. Walking distance to several Folly parks including the River Park, Pirate park, and Bark Park for dogs. Short drive to beautiful James Island county park.
