A taste of the real Folly Beach awaits in this classic beach bungalow, newly renovated in hip 1960s style to recall the island's Golden Age!
This two-bedroom, 2-bath Spanish-style bungalow was built in 1947 just three short blocks from the beach in a quiet residential area. Completely renovated to maintain its historic integrity, it has a new, fully stocked kitchen with Whirlpool appliances, marble shower with glass walls, reclaimed wood vaulted ceilings, original stucco walls and a sealed concrete floor that's cool on bare feet and pet friendly, too. New, comfortable furniture includes a pullout sofa and banquette dining. Bedrooms feature king-sized beds, flat-screen TVs with satellite and Direct TV, and hotel-style amenities including 100 percent cotton linens. A few 1960s vintage pieces and one-of-a-kind artwork add a fun and unique touch.
Outside, the newly landscaped yard features a courtyard patio and grill and is roomy enough to entertain. The highlight is the many ancient live oaks that dot the large, fenced lot, where soft grass invites all to romp and play—including pets. An enclosed outdoor rain shower and laundry room with half-bath make cleanup a breeze.
When you're ready to head to the nearby beach, just grab the beach cart, chairs and towels. A block away are Folly Beach's many eclectic restaurants, lounges, nightlife and unique shops. Within easy walking distance are Folly River Park and Folly Pier, where you can fish, crab, catch a meal at Locklear's Beach Grill or shag-dance with locals.
Parking for up to four cars in the private circular driveway is included.
About the area:
Southern Living has called Folly Beach “the perfect beach town.” Laid-back and casual, with a hippie surfer dude vibe, Folly Beach is a real American beach town that's home to both locals and visitors. From miles of beach and surfing the Washout—where local teens have been “hanging 10” for decades—to dining at locally owned eateries, kayaking island waterways, biking along the shoreline, fishing from or strolling the Folly Pier (the second longest on the Atlantic) or shopping at classic surf shops and unique boutiques, there's something for everyone here. No visit to Folly is complete without a stop at the longstanding Bert's, where the slogan is: “We may doze, but we never close.” Where else can you get surfboard wax, boiled peanuts, beer, organic smoothies and a turkey apple panini in the middle of the night? It's classic Folly Beach.
You'll share the island with dolphins, loggerhead turtles, bald eagles, an assortment of sea birds and even a few endangered species. You may even get inspired, as George Gershwin did: he wrote the musical Porgy and Bess while staying on Arctic Avenue.
Come to this real beach town for a Folly good time!
