For twenty years, our families and friends have enjoyed this 'home away from home' in the sleepy beach town know as 'The Edge of America.' Our children have grown up with fond memories of our time on this special island. While we are happy to see the town grow to offer fun dining, shagging on the pier, surf shops and many activities, our favorites include: picnic at the Morris Island lighthouse, breakfast at Lost Dog Cafe, riding our bikes the length or the island, family tennis at the public courts, and shopping at the Charleston market followed by dinner downtown at one of the MANY fabulous restaurants.
It's oceanfront! It's 20 minutes to an amazing historical city voted 'Best United States City' by Conde Nast Traveler 2011, 2012,& 2013! It's within 1.5 miles of the pier, shopping, & restaurants! It's got everything you need to park your car and never leave! Charleston voted number 2 city in the world to live in in 2015.
Beachside backyard is protected from wind due to new sea wall. Perfect for fall and early spring moderate days! Ocean kayak on site to chase dolphins!
Our family (1 toddler, 2 parents, 2 grandparents) stayed for a week between XMas and New Years 2014 (disregard the date above) We loved it. The backyard "sandbox" and easy-to-access beach made hanging out outside easy and relaxing. The sound of the surf was incredible. The beach was clean and perfect for walking, flying kites, and building sandcastles. Our daughter saw her first dolphin from the beach. Due to the angle of the shore, both sunrises and sun sets are beautiful. (Note: egg nog and rum go well with the sunset on X Mas).
We rented only the downstairs portion which was laid back and comfortable, much like Folly itself. Also much like Folly itself, it isn't fancy or all that new. If you're looking for luxury accommodations, the downstairs may not be your cup of tea (though the upstairs looks nice from the pictures). It's starting to show its age in a few places and could use some updates. But that didn't detract from the enjoyment. In fact, the not fancy condition alleviates any guilty conscience about tracking in a little sand, which helps with the relaxation.
The property is located a short drive or long walk from the main commercial part of Folly Beach (including Burt's, the pier, and the restaurants). It was only 25 minutes to Charleston Harbor and similar places, and not much farther to the Charleston airport. Folly Beach is a great, the perfect laid back beach town. But I'll let you read about that on TripAdvisor or in a guidebook.
We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Folly!
