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 Folly Beach

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.

Perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

Just a block from downtown restaurants and shopping, and Bert’s grocery with their incredible deli and Free Coffee! The 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment is one of 3 units in a classic beach cottage. It was immaculate and was everything I could have hoped for a grandmother-7 yr old grandson week at surf camp. Marei is an amazing hostess. I was able to reach her right away with questions. I will be looking to book again next year. Again, it was very well priced and the location could not have been better and just 2 blocks to public beach access. Would not have needed a car except for hauling surfboards.

Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the front bottom section of the house with 2 BR and one bath. The apartment was spotless, and the beds were comfortable. The lighting on the outside of the house was not working when we were there, and that made it difficult to see the steps and the uneven walkway. Overall, we loved it and will definitely consider renting again.

A Decent Value

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the bottom apartment. 2 rooms Comfortable. Clean. No view. 3 blocks to beach. More than 4 people would be cramped. The owners were very responsive and cheery.

The only poor items were the house was not as historical feeling as we were lead to believe, and the upstairs noisy floors could be a problem if the tenants are particularly active.

All things considered, a good value.

This is our second year staying at this property and we love it!

  • 5 of 5

The property is always clean, well equipped and close to everything! We always enjoy playing with the big Jenga blocks and this year I even borrowed a book for a few days. The Drapers are amazing hosts and assist with all of our needs. I’ll definitely be back next year!

Cozy place and great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this place. We’ve stayed at this location twice and it’s been great both times. Owners are terrific and the house is in great shape. Location is perfect too. Just a few minute walk to the beach and few minutes to walk to the main road through Folly. We will be back again in the future!

Comfortable spot in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The property's description was accurate, checking in was smooth, and the rooms were clean and welcoming. Only a short walk to restaurants on the main strip and right around the corner from Bert's. I would definitely recommend staying here.
