About Allison Owings
Our family lived in this house year-round for several years; however, when the kids grew up and went to college, we moved into town and used the house for the summers. Recently, we've grown older and aren't using the house as much so we've decided to rent it out and share the beauty. Our family was born and raised in Charleston and love the lowcountry with a passion. What a great place to live!
Allison Owings purchased this House in 1987
Why Allison Owings chose Folly Beach
Having rented homes on Folly Beach throughout our childhoods, we finally decided this was where we wanted to be. The beach, the water, boating and the views are incomparable. We built this house in 1987 and have loved it dearly ever since. Truly our family home with such great memories.
What makes this House unique
The view of the sunsets from the front porch simply can't be beat. There's nothing more beautiful than sitting on the porch with your family watching a summer storm roll in, watching the sun dip below the marsh, seeing the dolphins swim by from the dock, and watching the joy on your children's faces as they jump from the dock, pull in a fish, or catch a crab! **PLEASE NOTE: Hurricane Irma has damaged the dock and it is currently unsafe to walk down. We are in line to have it repaired, but our dock builder has been overwhelmed with Irma repairs. We hope to have it up and running as soon as possible, and thanks for your understanding.**

Loved our stay!!!
Quiet and secluded. This property comfortably slept two families. Kitchen was well equipped. Booking was easy without hassle.
Great spacious house with amazing water front!
We had an amazing time, and couldn't believe the beautiful dock! The house was fully equipped with everything we needed to enjoy a beautiful beach vacation.
Thanks so much, and we loved having you!!
Great layout. All amenities included. We had a nice stay. Thank you.
The location of this home is amazing.
The views of the Folly River are beautiful. We really enjoyed staying here. We were on a quiet street and had easy access to the beach with a quick golf cart ride. I hope we can stay here again one day.
I had a family get together here and had some very special moments! The setting was perfect. We saw dolphins every day in the intercoastal. They were close to the dock. The back porch is perfect for quiet evenings, days and everything in between. The kitchen had A LOT of things to cook and entertain, even if it was disorganized. There was some paint peeling in the bathrooms and the hammock was torn, but otherwise everything was in great order. Everyone who came commented on the location. It took forever getting on the island and downtown was super crowded, but where we were, you would have thought you were on a quiet, peaceful island. This place has a lot of sentiment for me now. I definitely enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere!
Thanks so much for your sweet review Cecilia! Our family has enjoyed making memories at our special spot, and it's wonderful to hear that now you keep it in your heart as well! I hope that means you'll return often!!
Thanks so much for letting me know about the paint as it's currently being repainted, and we've already hung a new hammock. I'm so sorry these things weren't working for you, but they most certainly will be if you can ever return!!
Hope you have a great summer and thanks again!
Beautiful location and warm welcoming home with a large kitchen! Loved it!
We gathered family and friends for a wedding on nearby wadmalaw island. It was a great place to call home for the weekend!
So much to do!! Swimming, boating, fishing, crabbing, paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, wind-surfing, sailing, surfing, and parasailing. Plus, the beach is only a short, 3 block walk or golf-cart ride.
