About the property

3 Bedrooms/2 Baths on first level or elevator in Sunset Villa with water views!!

This property truly has a million dollar view yet affordable to all. It's all about location. You must see the beautiful sunsets. New owners have totally redecorated. Very clean with all the amenities.

Enjoy the extended porch as you watch dolphin and sailboats or wading birds feeding in the marsh grasses. Full water views to Kiawah and James Island from the living area, kitchen, and master bedroom. Located very close to the beach but without the tourist and noise. Our quiet unit is walking distance to the beach, although you may choose to drive or rent bikes for your stay.

This island condominium will slow you down and make you relax. It is all you need to unwind. Nothing has been overlooked. Owners take pride in providing a very clean unit with comfortable beds, plush towels, and many extras. Romantic for a couples retreat, family vacation, or girls/guys get away.

About Linda Robinson

From East Tennessee...Johnson City, TN

Linda Robinson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Linda Robinson chose Charleston Area

We spent 15 years exploring where to purchase a vacation home that may some day become our retirement home.

Folly Beach offers the location to 'check all our boxes' ...gorgeous beach, boating, Charleston history and shopping. Tourist love it! Yet Folly is a quiet, quaint bohemian town where locally owned resturants and great music venues are found on every corner and side street!

Every season offers festivals and celebrations in Folly and Charleston. From January to December we find plenty to do!! Check out the calendar of events on line.

Folly is located only 5 hours from our home in TN so we can visit often!! But choosing this condo to buy was all about falling in love with the views!!!

What makes this condo unique

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

Definitely the spectacular views and quiet porch!

12 minute drive into historical Charleston!

We enjoy cooking seafood while we are in Folly and have found that Crosby's Seafood (10 minutes down the road) has the best fresh seafood to buy. Harris Teeter is just minutes away) has affordable lobster and crab legs that they will cook ahead for you to pick up and take to the condo for dinner!

Children of all ages love the swimming pool which is the largest pool on Folly. Very clean with convenient bathrooms. They also may love to go to the Water Park on James Island, the climbing ropes course or to the children's attractions in Charleston.

We enjoy driving over to the Mt. Pleasant/Sullivan's Island area (less than 20 minutes away) to visit Ft. Moultrie. You may enjoy eating at one of the many great restaurants on Shem's Creek while watching the boats go by.

Our favorite place to be on the beach is near the Pier. There are clean bathrooms, nice restaurants, an outdoor bar at Tides hotel, life guards, beach chairs and jet skis to rent, etc.

At the condo, we have an owner's dock where you might like to meet people while sitting in the evening watching for the dolphins to swim by. You can also leave crab traps hanging off this dock for later harvest! There is an easy launch area for kayaks and canoes for paddling around the river and nearby creeks. You may bring your own or rent knee boards or windsail vessels. If you bring your boat just let me know ahead and we can arrange a place to park the trailer. You can also find boat rentals in our notebook of information at the condo.

Of course you could enjoy riding your bikes or rent for the week. we love to ride to the beach, on the beach and in the neighborhoods on the island.

Whatever you do...don't miss the lighthouse walk on the nature beach at the end of Folly Beach. And of course save time to RELAX on our porch!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a lovely time at this property. The property was very beautiful and also the condo itself was very nice. We truly loved relaxing on the back screened porch. It was very well stocked with anything we needed or forgot. The location and amenities were as described and Linda, the owner, was very helpful and went that extra mile to help make our stay perfect for our needs. We would like to come back in the near future!

Fabulous Condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 5 ladies stayed at this wonderful condo for 4 days. It is close to everything we wanted to do. Is very well maintained with all the luxuries of home.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I really want to be stocked for guests who fly to Charleston and stay with us. I am here now so I brought new tennis rackets, balls, two cooler sizes and a beach cart for guests. I Saw our beach umbrella was missing so I'll replace it too. I think guests accidentally break or loose things. Part of being a beach rental. 😀 I appreciate all you let me know while staying with us. Hope you travel this way again someday!!

Great place, location with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and not sure how others in the future will compare. We were in town for a wedding with family staying at different places all over the area. The place was close to folly Beach, and very nice. Had dishes, dishwasher, washer / dryer and towels we needed. Games in closet, chairs if needed and access to pool. Loved it had Hulu and Netflix; what we use. The sunroom was very nice with a beautiful view. The place felt a lot like home. Glad we found it. Also appreciate the binder of restaurant recommendations!!!! My in-laws and a few family members that came in and out to visit commented that we were fortunate to find such a nice place. If we come back to the Folly area, we would stay there again!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great experience! Traveling can be scary with the unknowns. I try to be very accessible to all guests. Using TV and other technology can be tricky. Glad to hear ours was user friendly!! We will continue to add things and looking forward to an all new kitchen and baths this year! We have enjoyed making it our home away from home as we try to set it up for renters as well. Hope to help you again soon! Linda

Amazingly peaceful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 2 small children (4 & 1) for Spring Break and the condo was perfect for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and looking at the boats, but our favorite part was the balcony overlooking the marsh and river. So quiet and relaxing. We rode our bikes to the beach everyday - crossing the bridge is a little hairy with little ones, but not a deal breaker. We will definitely try and return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We are so happy you had a wonderful stay. Glad your bike riding was fun! The new bridge has really made if safer. At one time bike riding over the old bridge was just too narrow. The improvements are continuing in Folly!! Hope we can help you again someday!!
