About the property

3 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 6

Located on the third (and top) floor of the “Sunset Building” at Mariners Cay, this bright 3-bedroom corner unit offers a panoramic view of the Folly River and its surrounding marsh. (This building has an elevator.) Relax each evening on the screened porch or deck and enjoy the gorgeous sunset. Perhaps you will spot a dolphin, a pelican, or other marsh bird native to the South Carolina coast. The tranquility and natural beauty of this area create a restful environment for you to truly feel at peace.

A spacious and inviting kitchen/dining/living area with views of the water and marsh from the large window and sliding doors await you. You enter the screened porch with its adjacent deck from this area, as well as from the master bedroom. Two additional bedrooms and two full baths complete this condo unit. There are two bicycles for guest use, but you may want to bring your own helmets.

Mariners Cay is a gated community that offers a huge swimming pool, tennis courts, clubhouse, crabbing dock, and boat landing. It is an easy walk (less than a half mile) to Folly Beach and its pier and just minutes away by bike.

Folly Beach, the closest beach to downtown Charleston and its many historic and beautiful sights, as well as fine restaurants, is a six-mile long barrier island with a county park at the western end and the historic Morris Island Lighthouse at its eastern end. It is approximately 15 minutes away by car to downtown Charleston. You do not need to drive to Charleston to enjoy great food, however. Folly Beach and nearby James Island have many good cafes and restaurants.

Charleston has been selected by several travel publications as the number one travel destination in the U.S. Its well-preserved homes, public buildings, churches, parks, former rice plantations that are now beautiful gardens (Middleton, Magnolia, and Cypress), as well as Civil War and Revolutionary War sites, attract thousands of visitors each year. In addition, there are many excellent restaurants, a large variety of stores and boutiques, music of all kinds, and cultural performances throughout the years, most notably the Spoleto festival in late May to early June.

About The Owner

I was born and raised in Charleston but left when I was 18 to attend college. I have lived away from Charleston for many years and am currently living in Columbus, Ohio, but I have always longed to be back in my hometown. When this unit in Mariners Cay came on the market, my husband and I jumped at the chance to purchase it.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

We loved the magnificent, unobstructed view of the water and marsh from the condo and its proximity to Folly Beach, less than a half mile to the ocean. And, the sunsets! There is a reason that this building is called the 'Sunset Building!'

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a corner unit, so we have light coming in from two directions. It is on the top floor, so there are no footsteps above us. We were glad to discover that there is an elevator so that some of our older relatives can access our condo easily.

Perfect girls getaway with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo for a girl's weekend and it was absolutely perfect. 6 of us slept comfortably and we took advantage of the amenities and enjoyed the pool. Every morning we woke up to the beautiful views of the marsh- we even saw dolphins! The sunsets were also incredible, we probably could have spent the entire vacation on the screen in porch :) it's about a 5 min drive to Folly Beach, but we actually walked there in 15 minutes to avoid traffic. The condo is about a 20 min drive from downtown Charleston and very accessible. This was a great escape for our getaway!

Perfect beach spot for family or group

  • 5 of 5

This condo was PERFECT for a long weekend with a large group of friends (we were 7 people). The rooms were spacious and clean and we spent hours in the living room around the dining table and comfortable couches drinking beer and chatting while the sun set over the spectacular marsh and river views. The screened in balcony was a perfect place to watch the tide come in and out or see some dolphins swim by. We were walking distance to the beach and main part of Folly, and close to grocery stores and other necessities. We were able to easily drive into downtown Charleston for an evening. There is also a pool in the complex for a post-beach dip. This is the perfect spot for a family or group looking for a relaxing and convenient beach vacation.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend here with a group of close friends. It slept us all comfortably and was a great location close to the beach and an easy drive to everything Charleston has to offer. It was great to wake up in the morning and watch the wildlife on the marsh. Highly recommend staying here!

A Perfect Charleston Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of girlfriends for a weekend getaway, and this place was just perfect. The condo was clean, comfortable, and spacious, and had beautiful views of the marsh and its nature. The location was also ideal since it was an easy drive to both Folly Beach and downtown Charleston. We even spent some of the day just hanging out within the complex itself, where there is a nice pool. Highly recommend a stay here on your next SC visit.

Cozy, Comfortable, and Spacious, with Incredible Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our two young boys. They loved going to the beach (5 min. drive), and we loved having a comfortable, well-stocked home base from which to explore downtown Charleston (15-20 min. drive). The apartment looks out over gorgeous wetlands-- we woke up to dolphins frolicking outside the screened-in porch, and spent hours watching the herons and ibises glide over the marsh. The apartment is spacious with an open layout, and the rooms and beds are very comfortable. There is laundry, an elevator, and a pool in the complex-- a great place for young kids! We highly recommend, and plan to come back!

Beautiful Charleston Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay for your visit to Charleston or Folly Beach! My wife and I spent a long weekend with two other couples and found the home to be exactly as represented here. The setting is beautiful, with views of the marsh, wildlife, and sunsets. The home itself was spacious for the three couples, with plenty of room to relax together or to have privacy in the bedrooms. We enjoyed cooking and eating together in the spacious kitchen and dining area. The home is a very quick drive to Folly Beach, and also a great base for visiting Charleston. We loved taking in the city's historic sites and restaurants, and found this to be a perfect home base. All of the logistics were very simple and we had no issues whatsoever. Highly recommend!
