About the property

Private Pool, Walk To Beach And Center Street!

The house is a beautiful, fun, fantasy. It is a unique and special property. I fell in love with it and bought it the second I saw it. It has 4.5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with an outdoor shower for added convenience. House is meant to sleep 11 in bedrooms including trundle beds, but can accommodate up to 14 when you include day beds in 2nd living room and spare mattress that can be easily moved to any room.

Snowbirds, Folly is the best place to escape winter. Festivals and activities go on throughout the winter. The house is cozy for 2 people or 10+. Especially with gas fireplaces, even one in your master bedroom.

I've never seen another house with 4-sided wrap around porches on two levels. The house is set in a quiet family friendly street in a nature setting, very rare on Folly. Having a private pool adds a whole new dimension to your vacation. This one comes with resort style furniture, a grill and a grilling/dining Pergola. The HUGE, fully furnished screened porch and furnished 2nd level porch with hammock overlook the pool area, palmetto trees and nature setting.

The pool is an amazing bonus. Beautiful new poolside and pergola patios have greatly enhanced the aesthetic and comfort of the outdoor space. Plush cabana for two and other poolside loungers are perfect for enjoying the experience. Hot and cold outdoor shower in garage.

The walk to the beach and Center Street is so pleasant down a pretty Street. There is a direct short cut path to the beach from W. Hudson Ave at W. 3rd Street. Or, you can continue straight three more blocks to Center Street shops and restaurants. Tow your gear in the beach wagons provided. I provide beach chairs, beach towels, bikes, pool toys (with agreement to wash and fold for next guests).

You can also rent a golf cart zipping around the island. The island has several nice stretches of beach to explore. The closest beach access to Margaritaville has a nice bathroom facility and outdoor showers, as well as lifeguards in summer.

About Marguerite Downey

I came to Folly on vacation in 2002 and bought a house before I left! Many locals have a similar story. Folly grabs people and doesn't let go. I live down the street from Margaritaville and am usually available to assist you. When I am not here, my property manager takes care of you.

Marguerite Downey purchased this house in 2016

The home is beautiful. Plenty of room for our family of 11. The porches are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The home is beautiful and just a short walk to the beach and to town. The home has all the conveniences of home. The wrap around porches were relaxing and also great for hanging out. The owner is local and was wonderful to help us with questions. We will recommend this property to our friends and we will be back!!

Lovely home!!! Just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Marguerite rented her home to us last minute due a family emergency...we needed enough room for our adult kids to stay. Home was lovely & well equipped. Received our deposit back promptly also. Thanks Marguerite for allowing us to say at your beautiful home! Would love to come back in warmer weather to enjoy your pool!

A rental that pleases everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with three families. We really enjoyed the large multi level porches which offered plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was very well-stocked which we were thankful for since we ate most every meal there. The room layout was great with having several children thanks to the trundle beds. The only thing I would note is that there is one queen bedroom that is on the first floor and all of the other bedrooms are upstairs. This bedroom was kind of on its own and guests had to go upstairs to use the bathroom with a shower. Not a big deal, but it would've been nice to know the floor plan ahead of time. The pool was perfect and very clean. The outdoor furniture was also nice. The walk to the beach description is pretty accurate. It's a hike if you have kids and/or beach supplies. We opted to drop everyone off at the 3rd Street beach entrance and just have one person walk back or we all went and paid the $15 to park one day for convenience factor! If you are looking for a place on Folly that is in a nice, secluded neighborhood, but still close to the beach then this is a great choice!
