About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath condo on the Folly River

This vacation home is a one-level, two bedroom, two-bath condominium in the gated Mariner's Cay complex in Folly Beach, South Carolina, USA. The home is situated directly on the Folly River and has great views of the river, the sunsets and the activity at the Mariner's Cay Marina. The screened porch overlooking the back yard and the marina is a great place for dining, reading and relaxing. The master bedroom opens to the porch as does the main living area. The entire condominium has just undergone complete redecorating and refurbishment with new floors inside, ceramic tile on the porch and new furnishings, including twin beds in the guest room.

The home is all on one level with only a short set of stairs from the parking area to the front door and another set off of the porch into the back yard. We love having direct access to the back yard and the marina area.

The home is well-maintained, was recently refurbished and redecorated and is nicely furnished with all of the expected conveniences including cable TV and DVD player.

The complex has two lighted tennis courts, a large pool and is a great place from which to launch your adventures -- kayaking, boating and fishing the river, riding bikes, surfing and long walks in and around Folly Beach are some of the favorite activities. The beach is less than a mile away by car, bike or walking. Historic downtown Charleston is a 15 minute drive.

About Scott Wood

Our family consists of Scott & Becky, plus two children, Emily (20) & Campbell (19). I am director with a technology company in the automotive industry.

We all enjoy sports and outdoor activities and like to take advantage of any outdoor opportunities wherever we travel -- running, biking and hiking are some of our favorites. Soccer (or football) is a favorite sport.

Scott Wood purchased this condo in 1995

Why Scott Wood chose Folly Beach

Folly Beach is absolutely the best all around beach town on the entire South Carolina coast. Check online for yourself, but whether you're a surfer, a family, a retiree, an outdoor enthusiast or just want to get a away, you are welcome at Folly Beach. From the Folly Pier to the local restaurants (Rita's, The Lost Dog, Loggerheads, the Surf Bar) to the great public parking and facilities, you can't have a better beach experience. We have been going to the area for over 30 years and have watched it grow up --- but have never considered going to any other beach town. It's not pretentious or stuffy like some of the 'resorts'. You can be yourself, come as you are and absolutely have the best time you've ever had at the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our home is not on the beach, but near the beach and we wouldn't have it any other way. Over 30 plus years we've owned two properties in Mariner's Cay and think we have the best of both worlds. We not only can walk right over to the beach and be right in the middle of things if we choose, but we can be away from it all at the pool or on our screened porch. During the busiest of holiday weekends (Independence Day, for example) we can enjoy the beach, the people and the whole festive atmosphere as long as we like, but yet get away from the crowds when we choose. All of Folly Island can be full, but the gated community of Mariner's Cay is always serene and is the very best place to get away when you like.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and property of this condo. About a 5 minute drive to the beach and just under 15 minutes to downtown Charleston. The dock in the back of the property was great for fishing and we loved having our morning coffee and dinners on the screened-in porch looking out onto the water. Beautiful views and a quiet, relaxing setting to 'come home to' at the end of each day.

The condo itself had ample room for 2 adults/2 teens. We cooked most of our meals here and found the kitchen space to be functional with basic necessities included.

Overall, we had a great week-long stay in Folly and were pleased with this property.

The photos say it all...

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, I had a wonderful, relaxing time. Quiet, the only noise came from the dock and nature! Loved the sounds. Condo had all the basics available.

Absolutely no complaints. And, unlike previous reviewers, I had no problems with the neighbors. Found the folks around me friendly and helpful.

Would book again.

Nice view

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the stay however it is not really within walking distance to town and certainly not the beach. Short drive. Only negative is the upstairs neighbors, they expected us to be quiet however at 5:30 each morning they were STOMPING around upstairs closing doors and running water. If you want respect, please give respect. We were on vacation and couldn't really enjoy the patio for fear of being reprimanded by these people. Maybe they should live where weekend rentals are not allowed. Condo was very nice and had all that we needed.

Folly Beach

This two bedroom condo, which was recently refurbished with all new flooring, decor and furniture is the nicest rental in the entire Mariner's Cay complex. Most of the units in the complex are 2 level town homes, but this unit is a flat and you will enjoy not having to climb the stairs to the upstairs bedroom. Instead, the master bedroom opens up on onto the large screened porch with its ceiling fans and new tile floors and, of course, the beautiful views of the Folly River and the Mariner's Cay Marina. We have owned the home for 17 years and this is the first year we have chosen to rent it. You have full access to the two lighted tennis courts, a large pool plus it's a great place from which to launch all of your adventures -- kayaking, boating and fishing the river, riding bikes, surfing and long walks in and around Folly Beach are some of the favorite activities. The home is equipped with all of the expected conveniences including cable TV and DVD player. The kitchen is fully equipped, as well.
