This 3-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is full of original Folly Beach charm. The house was built in the 1930s as a fishing and hunting camp. My husband and I bought the property in 2004 and with hard work and love, we have turned it into the wonderful home that it is now. We have added all of the modern conveniences while at the same time retaining the classic look of a Folly Beach cottage. In the ten years we have lived here, we have gotten married and had two wonderful little girls, so as you can imagine, the house is very special to us.

The home is ideally located for visitors who want to walk to all of the local attractions. The beach, the pier, and BLU, the only ocean front restaurant and bar in the Charleston area, are within easy walking distance (2-5 blocks). Center Street's restaurants and shops are just two blocks away. Downtown Charleston, with its historic architecture, carriage rides, museums, and fine dinning is less than 20 minutes away as well.

The home itself is just as ideal as its location. The spacious back deck boasts a large dinning table in addition to a relaxing sitting area. The back yard is a private area that is perfect for horseshoes, croquet, or a game of kick-ball. From the backyard, take a walk down the boardwalk through the marsh to a small private island that boasts a hammock and a lovely playhouse. From the island, stroll down the dock right out to the Folly River. The dock is outfitted with a table and chairs, which makes it the perfect place for sunset drinks or a lunch-time swim. Keep a watch out for the wild-life. You'll be sure to see birds, crabs, and dolphin.

Back at the house, you'll find the interior just as special as the outside. From the front porch, step into the living room, which has the original wood floors and a lovely fire place. The living room opens into the kitchen and dinning area. The kitchen is bright and includes gorgeous granite counter-tops and all of the amenities. The cooks in your party will appreciate the attention to detail and will be able to whip up a fantastic dinning experience with ease. Every gadget and accessory has been provided, so don't worry about bringing your micro-zester from home!

Right off of the dinning area is a cozy t.v. room that comes in handy if you want the children to watch a video away from the adults or if you'd like to get away yourself for a little beach reading.

There are three lovely bedrooms in the home. The master bedroom, which has a queen bed, a flat-screen t.v. and a private bath, is on the first floor. The other two bedrooms, which share a bath, are upstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed while the other has two twin beds. All of the rooms are stylishly decorated.

Additionally, the home has such conveniences as a washer and dryer and free WiFi. On your arrival, you'll find the home stocked with a starter supply of the essentials so that you can unpack without stress.

We have a no-smoking and a no-pet policy. We rent by the week in the summer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Brad and I have been living on Folly Beach for ten years. We renovated this home and enjoyed the process so much that we have renovated several other properties. Brad does all of the work himself and his attention to detail really shows. We have decided to move to downtown Charleston to be more centrally located to our daughters' schools. Otherwise, we'd stay right here!
