About the property

3 Bed, 2 bath, pet friendly with a large fenced-in yard. Perfect for families

I've decided to rent my lovely beach home :) Only 2.5 short blocks (more like 1 block) from the beach, and 2.5 blocks from downtown Folly, the house is perfect for a relaxing vacation! Close enough to walk everywhere! We have a large fenced in back yard, perfect for kids to play in, or pets! We also have a kiddie pool in the back yard if you need some respite from the beach. The house is in immaculate condition, with a recently renovated kitchen, bathroom and new central AC system for those hot summer days. We would love to have you come experience the best part of Charleston :)

About April Teal

My family has owned this house for 35 years! My husband and I recently found and bought another house that we have renovated on Folly and decided to rent out our first home. My husband and I both grew up in SC, Sumter and Georgetown, fell in love at USC and as they say 'the rest is history.' We have loved this home and of course still do. We hope you enjoy!

April Teal purchased this house in 1980

Why April Teal chose Folly Beach

Our house is in the perfect location. Once you get to Folly, there is no need to drive anywhere! We also provide items to make life easier - a beach cart, we have an outdoor shower, kiddie pool, towels, linens, and 5 beach chairs!

What makes this house unique

Its hard not to love Folly beach. When looking for a home we wanted something classic, so we found this beautiful old home, but have renovated to make sure it has great appeal, but keeps the beach home vibe.

Great location, close to beach and a short walk to town. Beautiful fenced in back yard!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. The house was great. The fenced in yard was fantastic for the dogs. It was in a great location! The beach and town were only a short walk from the house.

Charming bungalow very close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

This cozy little beach bungalow was nearly perfect. I took away one star because the air conditioner broke during our stay. Other than that, the house provided ample room for me and my husband, our two young kids, and my parents.

What I loved most was the location. It was two blocks from the beach ( a quick 5 minute walk). Also, it was 4 blocks from the Folly Beach center/village where all the shops and restaurants and bars are. That distance was perfect. It was close enough to walk, but far enough away from the weekend party goers.

I had never been to Folly Beach, but I will certainly be back. And this bungalow will be at the top of our list.

I wanted to add that when we contacted the landlord about the air conditioner she was very responsive. Unfortunately, she couldn't get a hold of the HVAC person immediately so we endured a hot, stuffy night without a/c.

A sweet home in a great location, with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Oyster Catcher. This house was the perfect size for our family of 4 and our dog. It's in a very convenient location - quiet enough for a family with young children but close walking distance to the beach and downtown. The owner provides everything you need to have a great stay, and includes many nice touches that make it easy to relax and not have to run out to the store for extra supplies. I highly recommend this house! We will be back!

House is great. The location with the short walk to the beach and Folly town makes it perfect. It really is a great beach house with everything to make it a comfortable, relaxing vacation. Owner thoughtfulness for visitors is evident everywhere.

Look no further, this Folly Beach house is a GEM!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed here, 5 adults, and two babies (7 months, 2 years old), plus our small dogs. The house was the perfect fit for our family, with ample space for all of us to relax comfortably, come together at meal times, sit out front on the shaded screened porch to enjoy the morning and evening breeze, and play out back with our pups - this is truly a gem of a house!

We were able to walk to everything from the house. The beach, the pier, the restaurants, shops, markets, etc. on Folly Rd. Lost Dog Cafe was definitely our breakfast favorite. However, with the well equipped kitchen and gas grill on the deck, we definitely took advantage of this set up and prepared almost all of our meals. We also ventured into Charleston, for one afternoon and it was a quick drive from Folly Beach, about 20 minutes away.

April was so very easy to work with during the entire process - from answering questions during the initial inquiry phase, completing the deposit and contract, to resolving simple questions once we had arrived to the house. She was always very reachable and responded withing a very reasonable timeframe. We really can't thank her enough for all of her help. :-)

If we had the choice to come back to stay here again, we would accept without any hesitation! We truly had every need met during out stay here - beyond that, we are extremely grateful to the homeowner for allowing us the opportunity to create such amazing memories during our wonderful vacation at Folly Beach!
