This is a 1940's Folly original cottage completely renovated. The charm and cozy feel has been left in tack while the updates will inspire guest to go home and be creative with their own homes. The house has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed with a handmade linen duvet cover and shams. The other room has a day bed surrounded by windows perfect for reading and pulls out to a queen. There is also a pullout sofa. The front porch is fantastic providing people watching and great sunsets while rocking in Eames rocker replicas. The house still sits near the ground and would be great for people not wanting to lug their things up stairs. The front yard has a grapefruit tree and orange tree and the backyard has a beautiful live oak tree with some rope swings to play on. It is in a prime location at only one block from Center St; where the shops and restaurants are and Bert's Market is only one lot away. The beach is an easy two street walkover. This house is a great setting for family memories to be made in throughout the year and long winter escapes for snowbirds.
2 Bedroom/1 Bath 60 seconds walk to the beach!

Why Julia and Omar Colon chose Folly Beach
This is a classic cottage and is located right next to our other properties including Bert's Market- so it was instantly a no brainer.

It is close to the heart of Folly, virtually ground located and has a large yard by Folly standards. Guest will be able to park their cars and enjoy the simple things in life of not being rushed to go anywhere- as everything you need is in walking distance.

well designed and appointed beach house
Loved my stay at this charming beach house. While the photos are good, the house is more spacious and even cuter than the photos make it look. Also, it works very very well functionally which is a rare thing. I loved the location, proximity to the beach and to Bert's. I was also VERY pleased with the terrific mattress in the master, the generous electronics and the help the owners provided when I asked. GREAT PLACE!
Beautiful beach house!
We had an amazing stay! The house is beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, a block over from all of the shops and restaurants of Folly Beach, right across the street from the beach, and an easy 20 minute drive into Charleston. Bert’s next door is also an added benefit. We loved having our coffee out on the screened in porch, and were so happy we were able to take out dog on this trip with us. We would definitely stay again!
Cute little cottage!
This Folly cottage was everything we needed! Next to Bert's (can't beat that) and right near the ocean so that we could take our little dog out each day. We stayed over Christmas and it was simply magical and SO cozy. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had all we needed. The shower is a bit tight so that is something to keep in mind; my husband is 6'4" and I am 6' and we both made it work. Host was very communicative and helpful. We hope to stay again! Thanks Omar!
The home is exactly as represented in the photos!
Comfortable beds and bedding. Very charming. Wonderful location.
Cozy house, great location
This house has all the basics to make for a nice vacation on Folly. The house is located just a few blocks away from the center of town and less than a block from good eats and cute bars. It’s just a short walk to the ocean.
The house is well maintained and clean. The bathroom sink is clogged and vanity lights need replacement.
We enjoyed sitting on the porch on the evening hours. With very little ground light on the island, the stars shine brightly.
Cottage was nice, location too noisy
We wanted to get out of town for a much needed and relaxing long weekend, and were super excited about going here. The cottage is SO CUTE; great job with the renovations!!! Having said that, I think this place is great for young people without kids and heavy sleepers. The main bedroom is right next to the road. Lots of loud and noisy traffic at all hours, fireworks going off in the wee hours of the night, and loud people walking down the streets after midnight. Nothing wrong with any of that, but for a family of 3 who just wanted to get away for a relaxing weekend, it wasn't the best fit. Just kind of felt like we spent a good chunk of change, but didn't get the experience we were looking for.
Folly Beach is an fun eclectic barrier island to Historic Charleston. Charleston has been voted best city in the world to visit and Folly was voted in the top ten American beach towns!
