About June Todd

I am sure my veins are filled with salt. Even though I was born in Greenwood, South Carolina, I have always known that I was meant to live near the ocean. I have found my piece of heaven at Folly Beach. I hope that anyone who rents my cottage loves and respects as I do, and will take care of it as their own. This is the home I hope to be able to live in before I die, but must rent it to own it.

June Todd purchased this house in 1997

Why June Todd chose Folly Beach

Folly Beach is AKA 'The Edge of America.' It is still a beach with original old beach cottages, and filled with eclectic people and restaurants. It supports individualism and freedom. It is a sportman's and nature lover's paradise.

What makes this house unique

Walking across the street to the ocean, lying in the hammock on the deck, going to the river access and seeing the Morris Island Light House while walking down the river and watching the dolphin play. Catching crabs and fishing, biking, walking and kayaking and boating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

June - thank you again for opening your home to us!! We feel so comfortable, at ease and at home when we are here.This is our "home" at Folly and we wouldn't say anywhere else. Our friends shared the weekend with us and enjoyed their stay "almost" as much as we did.

Great House, Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families share this house with children ranging in age from 4-10. We stayed there for three nights over Labor Day Weekend. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable for all of us. We enjoyed the living room which was very roomy with a huge tv screen and tons of seating. We also loved the roomy kitchen with lots of counter space, lots of seating and everything we needed. There was also seating at a nice-sized bar top dividing the kitchen and living room. From the kitchen and the back deck, we could see the ocean and hear the waves! We enjoyed sitting out on the back deck at night, listening to the waves and visiting. This house is situated across the street from the ocean front houses. The easy walk to the beach access and arrival on the beach was probably only about 3-5 minutes which was very convenient with all of our children. We walked to the city center Saturday and Sunday nights, enjoying dinners and live music at Pier 101 and SnapperJacks and walking out on the beautiful pier. We had an almost full moon! The walk from the house to the city center with all the children probably took about 15-20 minutes. This walk would go much faster without children as it is only about 4-5 blocks. On our last day, we had a great lunch at Taco Boy as we headed out of town. We loved visiting Folly Beach. It is a very interesting town and we would love to come back one day. We were happy we chose this house to be our home for the weekend and dealing with the helpful owner was a breeze!

Good fit for our family!

  • 4 of 5

This is an older home in the midst of larger newer properties, and we enjoyed it very much. The beach access was great. There was adequate parking and a nice large deck which serves as another living space. The owner responded promptly to inquiries.

Great beach cottage for a family who needs space

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The house has a little view of the ocean from the deck, and a great public beach access walkway right across the street. The owner was nice and easy to work with!
