Two great views for the price of one! Enjoy marsh sunsets and ocean sunrises from this lovely home. Once Upon A Tide sits on the marsh but also has distant views of the ocean. You truly get the best of two worlds! Notice to Renters: Folly Beach is undergoing a beach renourishment project during the summer of 2018. Please log on cityoffollybeach.com for details. I also have posted information on Attachments.
From the back porch, you see stunning marsh sunsets, wading birds and long views of the Folly River, Morris Island Lighthouse and Charleston’s Ravenel Bridge. Move to the front porch and take in ocean views and breezes, sunrises and sea birds. We recommend you bring your camera or binoculars!
The home is a block away from the beach (second row); public access to the beach is a three minute walk northeast. The home is 3 miles from the main action, known as Center Street, on Folly where you can dine at local restaurants or walk the pier at night. You will need to drive, or rent a golf cart or bikes during the day.
Once Upon A Tide is exceptionally clean and open, with windows and porches that take advantage of its great views. The main living space, with an open floor plan, is on the top floor. Here you will find a comfortable living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining area. This floor has two large porches on opposite sides of the house: one faces the marsh and the other faces the ocean. The top floor also has a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and an attached bathroom and shower. The tiled kitchen is equipped with granite counter tops and electric appliances. Hardwoods run throughout the home.
The main sleeping quarters is downstairs, with three additional bedrooms. The master bedroom has a new king-sized bed (mattress is Serta medium memory foam I-Comfort Blue Touch 100) and an attached bathroom and shower. Two more bedrooms downstairs have queen-sized beds (one is Serta memory foam). They share a bathroom and shower. We also have available single and full-sized air mattresses with a pump. The downstairs bedrooms access porches. There is also a laundry room, with a washing machine and dryer.
The house has Direct TV and WiFi, air-conditioning and heating. Sorry but no pets are allowed. We will take stays a minimum of three nights (a week in summer). For week-long stays, we prefer Friday to Friday rentals but are flexible. Check-in is at 4:00 pm. Check-out is at 10:00 am.
Advisement: There is no elevator at this home, and you will need to walk up two flights of stairs to get to the main entrance. The main door has a keypad on the door. You and your guests will be given an access code to use every time you enter the front door, since it locks automatically when you shut the door. A second entrance abuts the downstairs marsh bedroom.
We have a charcoal grill downstairs in the garage. Thank you!
