About the property

2 bed/1 bath on the Beach


***I will always confirm prices when you message me!***

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, SC. 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 built this beach house in the 1970's on the weekends with their friends. This is our first attempt to share our paradise with the world. 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 :) Have a great day!

Quiet peaceful abode

  • 5 of 5

Nice cottage with plenty of room. You are so close to the ocean you don't have to even go out to hear it.

Everything we needed and a TOTAL ECLIPSE of the SUN

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Lizz for providing such a lovely and comfortable home away from home! Gramp's Getaway was wonderful, convenient and private at the same time. Folly Beach is a lovely place for a carefree vacation. We enjoyed the sights, had many fine meals, could have had easy access to Charleston, but we were having too much fun to even consider leaving Folly Beach! Thanks again, Lizz!

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.

About Lizz Taylor

Granny (Charleston, SC native) and Gramp (Savannah, GA native; USN Retired) built this home over 5 decades ago on the weekends. With the help of their friends on the weekends in the early 1970s, their dream morphed into a reality. "We were young and having the best time ever!" says Granny.

Lizz Taylor purchased this cottage in 1973

Why Lizz Taylor chose Folly Beach

Every Sunday after church at the old Navy Base in North Charleston, Granny and Gramp would drive to Folly Beach to browse the empty lots. There weren't that many left. They fell in love with this one and when they got home, Gramp called the number on the sign to make an offer. He promptly hung up- ranting that it was far too expensive (by a few hundred dollars!!)! Granny wasn't about to lose her paradise over a few hundred bucks: She gave him one look, then they were off to make the purchase. Thank you, Granny!

What makes this cottage unique

Wifi, cable, private beach walkway, on the 'quiet' end of the island, horse shoe driveway, OCEANFRONT, open layout, boardwalk over sand


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