About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2 adults + 2 kids)

* Quiet hours between 10pm and 6:30am*

Located in one of the beautiful saltmarsh-front neighborhoods that run along the road to Folly Beach, Paddler's Cove 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 renovated. It would be comfortable for a couple or a family with as many as three 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 are not on Folly Island proper, but a peninsula minutes up the road.

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.

About Quinn Dixon

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 family, old friends and new friends.

Quinn Dixon purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Quinn Dixon chose Charleston Area

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Spacious, quiet, and friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at Paddler's Cove and would recommend it to anyone visiting Folley Beach or the surrounding area. Charleston is an easy drive, and the actual beach is about 10 minutes drive, so it was perfect. The apartment is large, clean, cool, and comfortable. There's a nice kitchen and a Harris Teeter 2 minutes away if you prefer to cook. We appreciated the beach towels, chairs, and umbrella. Our belongings were safe and secure. The owners were friendly and welcoming!

Comfortable place to stay. Great for families with one or two kids.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is conveniently located near Folly Beach and Charleston. We were able to get to all the main tourist attractions in a 1/2 hour or less. The apartment was clean and well stocked, but needs some minor updates. This apartment is beneath the family's home, so not completely private. The family was friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Paddler's Cove.

Beautiful and exactly what I was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property made my families trip so much more enjoyable. Stores were convenient and near by when needed. Things left for use around the property were a life saver and Chris, Quinn and their family we're so nice and respectful of us being there on a relaxing vacation. Give it a 10/10! Plan on returning in the future!

Great Charleston vacation apartment

  • 5 of 5

Paddlers Cove is in a great spot to be accessible to downtown Charleston or the beaches in just a matter of minutes. Also a great grocery store, Harris Teeter, within walking distance of the apartment. The apartment itself is well furnished and modern - a very nice place to stay for a couple or small family. Quinn was always very timely and personable in all of our contacts. If we come back to Charleston this will be our first choice of a place to stay.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Paddler's Cove for our Charleston vacation and we absolutely loved it! Quinn and Chris were so accommodating and accessible and made our stay wonderful. We had quite a bit of rain during our stay and they gave us tons of great recommendations of indoor activities to do. The place is adorable, clean, close to the beach and also downtown Charleston, and had everything we needed plus more. We really hope to return!
