About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2 adults + 2 kids)
* Outdoor equipment is not included.*
*2 adults maximum + 3 kids*
* Strict quiet hours between 10pm and 6:30am*
This is a beautiful one bedroom, one bath downstairs apartment in a private residence, ten minutes from downtown Charleston and two miles from Folly Beach. The apartment was recently completely renovated. It would be comfortable for a couple or a family with as many as two kids.
The apartment/house looks out onto a tidal creek that connects with the Folly River and eventually the ocean. It offers excellent kayaking, canoeing and standup paddle boarding. Equipment is not included but can be rented from a local outfitter and launched off the dock. There are many species of birds, like the Blue Heron, Ibis, Egrets, Wood Storks and pelicans that make their home in the marsh just feet from the house. It is not uncommon to be visited by a family of dolphins that swim up the creek to feed.
This is a downstairs apartment below our family, and while we installed sound-barrier panels in the ceiling with the renovation, you can still hear noises. Our family goes to bed and wakes up early so if you are night owls and like to sleep in, this may not be the best place for you. We are the ideal place for families with kids on a similar schedule. We ask for quiet hours after 10pm.
We are in a quiet neighborhood where houses are close together. We cannot accommodate people coming to Folly to party, but those coming to relax and enjoy nature and Charleston. 2 adults maximum at all times, no noise after 10pm and absolutely no parties of any size.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We moved here in 2009 so that we could raise our kids by the water and beach and be surrounded by nature. We quickly discovered how many friends we had once we lived by the beach! We're glad to have this great apartment to offer to our friends and family and the occasional renter.
Why the Owner Chose Charleston, SC, USA:
Enjoy nature in your own backyard from the private dock while being only a short drive to the perfect little beach town of Folly Beach and Historic Downtown Charleston. We are quite kid friendly.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Bird watching- large Blue Herons, Ibis and Egrets perch on our dock. Nature viewing - dolphins often visit within arm's reach. Crabbing, kayaking, stand up paddling, creek swimming and fishing off the private dock (equipment must be rented). Surfboard and standup paddleboard rental can be arranged. Harris Teeter grocery store is located across Folly Road from our neighborhood. This is a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of Folly Beach in the summertime. It's very easy to get to downtown Charleston as well.
