About the property



Please be patient with me as vrbo's last update affected the rates and location section for this property and I'm working hard to correct this issue! I will always confirm prices when you message me though. Thank you for understanding!

Located minutes from the Morris Island Light House, come escape to this cozy, yet peaceful cottage tucked away at the east end of Folly Beach. With your own private walkway out to the sand, you will lose track of time while bathing in the sunshine!

This property is 800 sq ft and is ideal for 2 couples vacationing together, just one couple or a family of 3-4. WIFI and HD cable are available. The two bedrooms (one queen size and one full size bed) are side by side. They are not extremely spacious, but more than adequate for a week at the beach. Both bedrooms have a closet with coat hangers and a chest of drawers.

Linens and bath towels/wash cloths are provided for the two beds and there is a laundromat on W. Hudson.

The kitchen is stocked with plates, bowls, cups, silverware, pots and pans. Cleaning supplies are available for daily 'tidying up.'

There is a comfy hammock on the deck looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean.

My family has owned this beach house since the 1970's and this is our first attempt at renting to vacationers. We hope to accommodate all of our guests, and since we are local, we are willing to go out of our way to do so.

Thank you for taking the time to view our listing :)

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Gramp's Getaway and we have enjoyed it both times! Perfect spot on the beach away from the crowds and a short walk to the lighthouse. The house is very clean and Lizz is very responsive and helpful with any questions. We look forward to staying again soon!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Gramps Getaway. The cottage was near the end of beach, close to the Morris Island Lighthouse and was really close to the ocean. Magnificent views of the ebb and flow of the tides. We loved the glass enclosed front porch. Lizz did a beautiful job decorating Gramps and filling it with those special touches that make a house a home. If you are planning a trip to Folly, I strongly recommend that you contact Lizz as soon as possible.

All the comforts of home with a stunning ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to South Carolina. We will definitely be back and look forward to our return to Gramp's Getaway. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We ate most meals at "home" and found the kitchen to have plenty of cookware to meet our needs. The cottage was within walking distance from the lighthouse. We also liked that it was located a short distance from town, but far enough away when we needed a break after a busy day of taking in the sites of Charleston. The best feature of the cottage is the sun porch. We woke up every morning and enjoyed coffee while taking in the beautiful sunrise. We caught a few naps on the futon as it was hard to resist with the sun shining in the porch. Finally, our stay was perfect thanks to the property manager, Lizz. She was extremely responsive and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area when we had questions.

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

Much needed trip for my dog and I. Gramp's Place was perfect!! Nice to have the screened in porch and the open deck. At high tide you could almost touch the ocean. At low tide you can walk the beach forever. I loved this perfect little cottage. Thank you Elizabeth Taylor! We really enjoyed it! 😎?

Visit the Morris Island Light House! If you continue east down the beach, it's just a few minutes walk from our property.
