About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Summertime is more fun at Folly, and Dolphin Cottage makes a beach vacation in this eclectic little seaside town even better. Named after a dolphin that was rescued from inside the house after hurricane Hugo, Dolphin Cottage offers a light, open space to relax with family and friends. Even better, canine family members are welcome too! The maximum number of pets is 2, and there is a non-refundable pet fee of $150.00 for one pet and $200.00 for 2 pets. This goes towards extra cleaning and pest control services. Thank you for understanding!

The kitchen, dining, and living areas come together under a vaulted ceiling, and a wall of windows overlooks a secluded garden where the large deck flows through the tropical greenery. Bamboo floors and bright colors with whimsical accent walls hand-painted by the owner create a cool and easy place to spend a summer vacation.

The combination of quality linens, a king in the master bedroom, 1 queen bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and a sleeper sofa, ensures a good night’s sleep, and the artistically-decorated full baths are generously-sized. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking and sharing meals together, and the private garden deck offers a shady respite from the summer sun.

Only a couple of blocks to the beach and Center Street with the Folly Pier, shops and restaurants, this house is the perfect location for being in the mix of everything that is Folly Beach.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: My husband and I moved to the area, built our careers and then renovated a sailboat and took off sailing. Along the way, we had our first daughter, moved back to Folly Beach and raised our family. We moved away, living in Philadelphia for my husband's job but we moved back to the area a few years ago. We were able to keep our beach house and are now able to rent out to fortunate vacationers, such as yourself, to enjoy Folly Beach.

Why Folly Beach, SC, USA:
We moved to Folly Beach in the early 90's and immediately fell in love with the area. We bought Dolphin Cottage and took several years to renovate and modernize, while still maintaining the cottage charm of it's original construction in the 1930's. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
