Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms/2 Baths on first level or elevator in Sunset Villa with water views!!

This property truly has a million dollar view yet affordable to all. It's all about location. You must see the beautiful sunsets. New owners have totally redecorated. Very clean with all the amenities.

Enjoy the extended porch as you watch dolphin and sailboats or wading birds feeding in the marsh grasses. Full water views to Kiawah and James Island from the living area, kitchen, and master bedroom. Located very close to the beach but without the tourist and noise. Our quiet unit is walking distance to the beach, although you may choose to drive or rent bikes for your stay.

This island condominium will slow you down and make you relax. It is all you need to unwind. Nothing has been overlooked. Owners take pride in providing a very clean unit with comfortable beds, plush towels, and many extras. Romantic for a couples retreat, family vacation, or girls/guys get away. Enjoy the large pool, tennis courts, or rent a marina slip for convenience.

This is a perfect place for Citadel and College of Charleston parents to stay for visits and graduations. Visit Folly Beach and nearby Charleston for the many festivals and celebrations or visit the many historical plantations and forts. The music is always wonderful at Folly Beach or check out The Pour House and Charleston Music Hall. You may also enjoy the nearby shopping in Charleston or outlets. This location has something for everyone.

Laid back is the best way to describe Folly Beach. Life on Folly Beach follows a fun, relaxing pace. During the winter, it is a small town at the end of I26. In the summer, it is a vacation destination. Locals proclaim, “We have the best waves, the best nightlife and the best beach atmosphere along the Charleston Coast...don’t tell anyone.”

Folly Beach is home to the famous Morris Lighthouse, colorful locals, sand, sun, and some of the best surf on the East Coast. Also home to many species of endangered wildlife. Folly is a nature lover’s dream complete with a maritime forest and dolphin filled waters. Due to the abundance of outdoor activities and water sports, this normally sleepy beach town comes to life during the warmer months, welcoming visitors and locals alike to water ski, kayak, fish, crab, and surf. Folly offers the best of both worlds with six miles of beach on one side and equally stunning river views on the other.

For many Folly is considered “Charleston’s beach” because it is located just 8 miles from the historic peninsula. Although it’s close to all the great things Charleston has to offer, once you cross the Folly River, you feel a world away. A dazzling combination of bohemian style and laidback hospitality make this quiet little beach town a true gem on the “Edge of America”.

About Linda Robinson

From East Tennessee...Johnson City, TN

Linda Robinson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Linda Robinson chose Folly Beach

We spent 15 years exploring where to purchase a vacation home that may some day become our retirement home.

Folly Beach offers the location to 'check all our boxes' ...gorgeous beach, boating, Charleston history and shopping. Tourist love it! Yet Folly is a quiet, quaint bohemian town where locally owned resturants and great music venues are found on every corner and side street!

Every season offers festivals and celebrations in Folly and Charleston. From January to December we find plenty to do!! Check out the calendar of events on line.

Folly is located only 5 hours from our home in TN so we can visit often!! But choosing this condo to buy was all about falling in love with the views!!!

What makes this condo unique

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

Definitely the spectacular views and quiet porch!

8 mile drive into historical Charleston!

We enjoy cooking seafood while we are in Folly and have found that Crosby's Seafood (10 minutes down the road) has the best fresh seafood to buy. Harris Teeter is just minutes away) has affordable lobster and crab legs that they will cook ahead for you to pick up and take to the condo for dinner!

Children of all ages love the swimming pool which is the largest pool on Folly. Very clean with convenient bathrooms. They also may love to go to the Water Park on James Island, the climbing ropes course or to the children's attractions in Charleston.

We enjoy driving over to the Mt. Pleasant/Sullivan's Island area (less than 20 minutes away) to visit Ft. Moultrie. You may enjoy eating at one of the many great restaurants on Shem's Creek while watching the boats go by.

Our favorite place to be on the beach is near the Pier. There are clean bathrooms, nice restaurants, an outdoor bar at Tides hotel, life guards, beach chairs and jet skis to rent, etc.

At the condo, we have an owner's dock where you might like to meet people while sitting in the evening watching for the dolphins to swim by. You can also leave crab traps hanging off this dock for later harvest! There is an easy launch area for kayaks and canoes for paddling around the river and nearby creeks. You may bring your own or rent knee boards or windsail vessels. If you bring your boat just let me know ahead and we can arrange a place to park the trailer. You can also find boat rentals in our notebook of information at the condo.

Of course you could enjoy riding your bikes or rent for the week. we love to ride to the beach, on the beach and in the neighborhoods on the island.

Whatever you do...don't miss the lighthouse walk on the nature beach at the end of Folly Beach. And of course save time to RELAX on our porch!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a lovely time at this property. The property was very beautiful and also the condo itself was very nice. We truly loved relaxing on the back screened porch. It was very well stocked with anything we needed or forgot. The location and amenities were as described and Linda, the owner, was very helpful and went that extra mile to help make our stay perfect for our needs. We would like to come back in the near future!

Perfect Location - Just like home - owners thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation!

This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn't be happier. Everything was just as described/pictured and Linda was easy to reach when/if we needed anything.

It was such a blessing to be able to sit around and play games and bake cookies with the kiddos while on vacation. (with 3 teenagers I would have never thought something so simple was the perfect answer for us - but it was)

The views from the condo and the dock where beautiful in the mornings.

We were able to have coffee and relax and one morning listen to the rain. LOVED IT.

The pool area at the condo was clean and the water was warm. There were plenty of seats and even a shaded area to eat snacks.

You are about 15-20 minute drive into Charleston from the condo - a 12 minute walk to the beach or drive in and park in about 3 minutes. We also went to Kiawah Island, The Angel Tree and Charleston Tea Plantation - and the location here was perfect.

It just felt like home and for a busy family of athletes this was the perfect answer for our vacation! Thank you!

Our best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so comfortable for our family of 6, we absolutely loved it. The kids loved seeing dolphins off the boat dock, playing games on the balcony and of course the pool. It was so convenient in getting to the beach and the shops in Folly. We met some of the neighbors and everyone was so nice, wonderful place and so inviting. We will definitely stay again and my girls are already asking when we can go back and stay!

Owner's Response: Oh thank you sooo much!! That’s exactly what we love to hear! We try hard to make our home the way we would expect and enjoy if traveling. Love it when our guests become repeat renters and view it as their vacation home too. Can’t wait for you to see the kitchen and bath redos! Stay in touch...Linda

Unforgettable sunsets and total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time!! I am so glad that your family is gracious enough to share your property with others. Started each morning with coffee on the screened in balcony, had full days exploring Folly Beach and Charleston and ending each day watching the sunset. The kids were at the pool every chance they got!! Thank you again for your hospitality. I don't want to recommend too highly, because I don't want it to book up for future stays!!!! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. It is hard to open our home up for rentals as we have it set up as our second home. But I will continue to make it as comfortable as we expect when traveling also. We are here now staying a few weeks. I can’t believe we have a week open this June. Guess I’ll just get to stay longer!!🧜‍♀️

We saw dolphins one morning and just loved to sit on screen porch and listen to the birds and wild life. Would definitely stay again. Very well stocked. Quiet and peaceful.
