About Christine Wilkerson

I'm a long time Folly resident, proud mom of a 'almost ready to graduate' UT Vet student, and Citadel wife. The only kids at home are our 2 Labs named Honey and Butter and a wicked cat named Rocket. I love living on The Edge of America and the laid back lifestyle we enjoy here. Best thing that ever happened to me was losing my office job which set me on the path to where I am now. I love what I do and providing comfortable, fun places for my guests to relax, be with family and have fun.

Christine Wilkerson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Christine Wilkerson chose Folly Beach

This will be my third property at Turn of River. Look at #466100 and #405371 and see what you think. This unit is colorful, beachy, family friendly, and put your feet up and relax with a margarita comfortable. More pictures are coming soon as we progress on the redecorating.

What makes this condo unique

Avoid the hour long cattle call you have to go through at a rental agency just to pick up a key. I will meet you when you arrive, point out your reserved parking spaces and show you in to the condo. Cleanliness, soft cotton sheets, and lots of fluffy towels are not unique, they are standard in all my rentals. I even supply the beach towels and chairs. Got a baby? There's a pack-n-play and high chair in the unit. The condos are quiet and spacious with room for big family gatherings. The screened porches are perfect for kicking back with a favorite book and catching up on naps. Like to fish? The private dock is a great place to fish for flounder, crab or picnic. I can also help set up an inshore or offshore fishing trip.

We LOVE Mermaid's Watch

  • 5 of 5

What can we tell you about Mermaid's Watch? The colors are extraordinary. The condo is immaculate and very clean. The beds are comfy. And the views from the screened porch are beautiful. It's very peaceful and quiet. You're close to pretty much anything Charleston. We've already said that we're ready to go back. Thank you, Christine for sharing your little slice of heaven! The Florence YaYa's

Christine's condo had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. The view was very pretty. It was convenient both to the beach and also to Charleston. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wouldn't hesitate to rent from Christine again.

Mermaid's watch had everything our group needed! Walking distance to the beach, short drive to charleston (~20min), and great resources available at the unit! Christine was very flexible and responsive. This was the perfect spot for my group of 6 girls! Would definitely stay again!
