About Robin Bessent /Sue Shubert

Robin & Tom Bessent purchased these 2 classic cottages 3 years ago and renovated them for comfort and modern amenities like new appliances and air conditioning, but left all of the original charm of the 1940-50's area.

Robin Bessent /Sue Shubert purchased this house in 2013

Why Robin Bessent /Sue Shubert chose Charleston Area

Why rent a hotel room when you can have your own private comfortable classic cottage? Perfect location to relax and enjoy Folly like a local!

What makes this house unique

The cottages are located in a quiet residential area away from the busy, sometimes noisy downtown area, but are still only a 6 block stroll, bike ride, or golf cart ride for dinner and night life. The 6 th block area of Folly Beach offers wide expansive soft white sandy beach that is a mere 2 minute stroll away. We provide each cottage with a sturdy aluminum beach cart to make it easy getting your beach chairs, umbrella & cooler to the beach. A laundry facility is available on site.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, clean, well decorated, close to the beach...great place to stay for two people. I loved it the minute we pulled up. Screened in front porch ideal for drinking your morning coffee. Backyard grill and a kitchen so we cooked almost every night. Comfortable bed, clean sheets, clean bathroom...just made our stay so easy. I felt like I got super lucky finding this on VRBO, I'll stay here again in a heartbeat. Oh, and close to the if you are like us and carry a tent, chairs, cooler, surfboards, beach games, can make more than one trip and its no big deal;)

Adorable little cottage close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Folly at the Sea Glass Cottage. We were a short 2 block walk to the beach, and a 3/4 mile walk from town, which was not bad at all, we were far enough away from all the noise of town but still able to walk to dinner in the evenings. The owners are very attentive, my husband even left something at the cottage and they mailed it back to us. Would definitely stay here again!
