Folly Beach Hideaway With Shared Dock and River Views

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


Minimum Stay
2 nights

About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Loft (Sleeps 2-4)

Affordable getaway 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston. 8 minute walk to the sandy beach and less than a block to the restaurants and shopping on Center Street. Folly Beach is a unique island with classic characters and hospitality. New shared

dock available for use.

River and marsh view apartment is upstairs with 1 bedroom with queen bed, separate living room area with pull out futon in sunroom, bathroom with bath and shower, and full kitchen with stove (no oven or dishwasher).

The location is quiet yet close to the pier and Center Street restaurants and shops. Long term tenants rent the house next door on the same property. The tenants are very easygoing and our vacation rental visitors rarely see them.

We've lived in the Charleston area our whole lives and would by happy to assist with recommendations to explore the wonderful Lowcountry. Please call with any questions.

While the apartment is above a garage, and is a freestanding structure, the porch of the rental is attached to the main house, which has long term tenants who are very laid back. The long term tenants do not use the porch per their rental agreement, the porch is only for vacation renters.

Please note that a $65 cleaning fee applies to rentals of less than 3 nights. This is sent as an updated quote/payment request once the unit is booked.

Thanks for looking.

About Mario Inglese

We love living on Folly Beach, it is truly a special place. We enjoy traveling and like helping folks enjoy their travels.

Mario Inglese purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mario Inglese chose Charleston Area

I bought on Folly Beach for the water, the salt air, it's funky vibe, it proximity to Charleston, best surfing in South Carolina and the relaxed pace.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is quiet and private but only one block to Center Street. No need to drive to eat dinner or grab a drink, it's a short walk. The pier, about 1/5 of a mile long, is a short walk away The public boat landing and Folly River pier are a 5 minute walk away.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider booking again with Mario! House was tidy and spacious. The best part about the house was the private dock with a perfect view of the sunset. Mario was a great host! Thanks again!

Excellent location and host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during our honeymoon and had the best time. Downtown Charleston is just a short drive away and the beach is within walking distance. Mario was an excellent host and super accomodating. We came right after hurricane Matthew and the power was out on Folly so we got a hotel in Charleston for the first night. Mario gave us updates until power was back on in Folly and we could go to the unit. While you are there at Folly Beach make sure and visit Wich Doctor for awesome sandwiches. Highly recommend the treehouse and you couldn't ask for a nicer and more helpful host than Mario. The location was perfect for us and the view from the deck near the waterway is the best.

Fantastic, private and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Mario was very responsive and a wonderful host. The apartment was clean, well stocked with linens/towels and in good repair. The breakfast nook and back deck off the second story apartment offer a wonderful view of the marsh and river. The pier extends almost 900ft from the back of the property to a private, covered pierhead and dock. We enjoyed spending our afternoons out there. The property is also so convenient to local restaurants on Centre Street and only 8 minutes walk from the beach. Great stay, would come back for sure!

We had a great time, the location is ideal and it had everything I was looking for. I certainly recommend it and would rent again if I go back to folly.

Great location, cozy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, short walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. Only complaint was that the door could not be locked from the outside, only from the inside, so we kept our valuables locked in the car when away. Not a huge deal, but inconvenient.

Overall, the inside was clean, quiet and as advertised. Would definitely book again.
