Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 4) that is centrally located and freshly updated!

Once you park your car you will not need it until you are ready to go home! Your reservation of this unit comes with off street parking for ONE CAR in our parking area (Unit B Parking Area).

This is a quaint, beachy, quiet, older DOWNSTAIRS FIRST FLOOR UNIT OF A TRIPLEX only a block to the ocean with a life-guarded beach, and one block to the pier, and 'downtown' Folly Beach. Walk to all the bars, restaurants and beach with ease! From time to time, you can enjoy the acoustical music being played at Chico Feo down the street from the outside sitting area.

Our home was the "hotel" on Folly from the 1940's called The Marion Guest Quarters. The sign remains out front, but has received a "face lift" from one of our former tenants and now dons Blackbeard's Flag!! The history and charm of the home were two of the big selling points for us in purchasing the home. :) We have converted the home into three rental units - this unit is the downstairs front unit of the property.

As this is part of a TRIPLEX, guests need to be considerate of guests in the other units. As this is the DOWNSTAIRS FIRST FLOOR UNIT, sound can be heard from upstairs unit from time to time. We have priced this unit with consideration of this situation. We do include white noise machines in each bedroom just in case you are a light sleeper. If you are sensitive to sounds or looking for a private property rental, this rental WILL NOT be a good fit.

Additionally, if you are looking for a "party" rental, THIS PROPERTY WILL NOT BE A GOOD FIT. Driver’s license upload is required for all reservations as well as description of your car color, make, model & license plate. Parking on Folly can be tight and we have to ensure that the parking in front of our property is being utilized by our guests.

The property boasts 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with about 750 square feet. A/c, cable, flat screen TV, wireless internet, hotel style linens, bath towels, beach chairs, and a full kitchen, are provided. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room. New living room and dining furniture April 2017.

There is an outdoor grill area with chairs and an outdoor shower for after the beach.

We are so centrally located, you won’t need your car! Center Street, Bert’s Market, the fishing pier, and beach are 1-2 short blocks’ away. Come relax!

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY - 4 people.

Cleaning fee is an additional $100.

***We DO NOT have a washer & dryer, but West Hudson Laundromat is just down the street - http://www.westhudsonlaundry.com***

Snowbird rates available October - February.

About Eric and Marei Draper

We are the Draper family. 2 adults and three children and a DAWG (that's right a big white English bulldog, names Lulu)! We are from Atlanta and Charlotte, but we found each other and Folly Beach! We love Folly Beach!

Eric and Marei Draper purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Eric and Marei Draper chose Charleston Area

We bought this property years ago as an investment, with the long term hopes of living there one day. The old beach charm, character, and fantastic location we couldn't pass it up. We lived upstairs for the last couple of years and enjoy all the Folly has to offer. We do not currently live here full time, but it is our escape any chance we get and it will be a full time home again one day!

Folly Beach is so unique, laid back, and beautiful...and still only minutes away from historic downtown Charleston, SC.

Once you park you car you can walk to all of Folly Beach's offerings.

What makes this apartment unique

The sign out-front says it all! Teach Edward Teach! He is the pirate, Blackbeard (Edward Teach), and the inspiration for the name of the property: Eddy's Folly. He adorns the sign out front and greets all passersby with a sign that mimics the flag that caused fear in many a sailor.

Great week at Folly

  • 5 of 5

Nice find! Ground level, two bedrooms. Perfect for 4 . Older building, originally a small hotel with a true beach house feel. Remodeled, clean and efficient. Mostly private yard with picnic table, Weber Grill, and outside shower. The main strip is two blocks West with lots of great restaurants and entertainment. In the other direction only 4 doors away is Bert's Market, open 24/7. A little pricey if you're comparing it to Walmart, but not bad at all, my vegetarian Lady was quite pleased and the convenience is priceless. Shop Local! Across the street from that is Chico Feo. Outside seating, live music. A Bar with a Great Kitchen and unique menu. Less than two blocks past that is the Ocean.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the location, but we could hear almost every step that was taken above us. Within minutes we were able to walk to the beach, pier, stores, and restaurants. The apartment was a good size for our family of four, even with small kitchen and single bathroom. The doors between the 2 bedrooms and bathroom was a bit odd...could be better with a slide door for the bathroom. The internet signal was very weak when it was available, but plenty of channels when we weren't out and about. We would stay again, if the adults were upstairs with teenagers downstairs. Owners were polite and very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Lance, Thank you for coming and staying at our property. We are glad you liked the location. Thank you for the feedback on the internet signal, apparently one of our routers had gone out and has since been replaced. Best, The Drapers

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED this place! It's within super convenient walking distance to EVERYTHING... Bert's, Beach, Pier, and Center Street! On a night I wanted to hang around the house, I sat outside on the picnic table and enjoyed listening to the band at Chico Feo. The place was clean, comfy and perfect. Thanks for sharing your space with me! ~Light & Love~
