This attractive six bedroom, four and half bath beach front home was built in the 1930’s by the owners’ grandparents and has recently been tastefully renovated and enlarged yet still maintains its character and charm. Boasting an expansive beach, wrap around porch, ocean views, close proximity to dining, shopping, fishing on the pier, and a fenced in yard, this family get-away on the front beach is a treasure on the island. Folly Beach is also the closest beach in the area to downtown Charleston! With so much to do here, it’s difficult to stay indoors, but here you will find reclaimed maple floors and pine wood walls throughout, stainless appliances, shell-limestone countertops, added bathrooms and enchanting gathering spaces.
Uniquely offering a nostalgic beach experience, this home has a wide central hall going through the middle, a large sleeping and gathering space in the front, and a quaint loft tucked upstairs for children to get away and play board games. Extensive seating and a large eating area outside with two tables for inside dining makes this house perfect for big family get-togethers. For people interested in boating, there is ample parking across the street on our vacant lot for your boat and trailer. The boat landing to the Folly River is only half a mile away. Sunset Cay Marina is a mile away. There are six bedrooms, two bedrooms are master suites, each with queen beds and a private bath, three bedrooms have double beds with shared bathrooms, and one of the bedrooms has a queen sized bed with a double bed and a shared bathroom. You will also find a bunk area with two single sets of quaint bunk beds and two single beds on the front porch.
This house sleeps 20 in beds, but we strictly enforce 16 as the maximum occupancy.

Why Tim & Ranai Kennedy chose Folly Beach
My Grandfather built this home in 1934! We have spent our entire life vacationing at Folly and love it. For the first time ever, we are offering our home for rental to help pay the taxes and maintenance.
What makes this House unique
Lovely front beach home with unobstructed views of the pier. This section of beach at Folly is the best on the beach. Extra wide with a great surf break! A short 3 block walk puts you in the middle of the action of downtown Folly with all the shopping, dining, and activities it offers, yet it is far enough away that you can sleep with your windows open and enjoy the sounds of the surf!

BEST HOUSE ON FOLLY BEACH
JoAnn Cottage was the PERFECT house for our family. It has so much character and was the perfect house for us to stay in for our visit to Charleston for our daughters wedding. Our family made so many memories in this house that we will cherish forever. The Kennedys were awesome to work with and the house had everything we needed. We will definitely rent this house again and again. Thanks again Kennedys!
Everything was great!
Amazing Family Cottage!
Rented this wonderful historic home at Folly's Beach for our son's wedding. We had all our children and grandchildren coming and thought it would be fun to all stay together. The home was lovely and very quaint. We all loved the family photo's of days gone by and how the family had grown. It had the perfect layout with several bedrooms and bathrooms and was in perfect condition. Location was great....close enough to walk to town, but far enough away from the hustle, bustle and noise of downtown. Beach was lovely and right out the back door. Outside and inside padio's were great and we spent many hours enjoying our family in both spots.
Tim was easy and wonderful to work with on the rental.
Many, many thanks for sharing your lovely family home with us. It is certainly a week we will all hold close in our hearts and memories!
A Special Place!
Excellent stay at the Beau Studio Home. It was very comfortable for our large group. It was very clean, cozy and convenient to shopping, downtown Charleston and what a perfect view from the deck. Owners were very easy to work with. I highly recommend this property and hope to return.
The Beach Girls loved this house...it was so completely “Karen White “ and “Dorothy Benton Franks”
Loved the entire experience and will return again soon
Our family stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday, in, truly, the best beach house on Folly. Guests aged from 5-75 enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful deck overlooking the ocean and walking on the beach. The family spaces provided ample area to play board games and watch football. The kitchen was fully stocked for all of our cooking needs. The bedrooms gave each person/couple the private space to wind down following the long days of fun and activities in and around the house. Restaurants and shopping were a brief walk away and grocery stores were within a short driving distance. This house is very special! We have already rebooked for next Thanksgiving!
