About Teresa L. Mincey
My husband and I built this home in 1991 after moving to the Low Country from Columbia, S. C. After many years of looking for the right property, we found paradise. Our desire was to raise our 2 daughters in a safe place while enjoying the beach and all of the fun things Folly has offer. Living on the water and being outdoors allowed our girls to grow up learning how to crab, fish, shrimp and an all around appreciation of the water and all of the beauty this home has to offer. They're grown and out of the house, now,so I'm in that ''sizing down" mode and it's time to let others enjoy this home located in such a beautiful place. I've had many rental property for 35 years so I decided to incorporate this property in with my other rentals, rather than selling this unique, one of a kind home. I realized an important thing, it can not be replaced or duplicated. So, there ya go, let's all continue to enjoy our Special piece of Heaven. Hope to see you soon!

You'll find so many details tended to to make your stay enjoyable and make you feel special. And you are, you're my special guests!
What makes this House unique
You can sunbath on the private dock while enjoying all of he river activities, views and outrageous sunsets. You'll have to decide...beach today or hanging on the river. Sometimes, I find that a very tough decision and feel so fortunate to have it! There's several seating areas(inside and out) to relax and enjoy your time off while enjoying your privacy. The "Sunset" House is just a great place to escape the crowds, keep busy, if you want, or just do nothing.

August 2019 stay
My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Sunset House. The location of the house was very peaceful and serene. Folly Beach was very busy while we were there but this house gives you quiet and privacy, while still being close to the beach and all the activities that Charleston has to offer. We enjoyed fishing and crabbing off the dock and saw many porpoises, birds, and other wildlife. The house itself was comfortable, roomy, and cool. And needless to say, the sunsets were amazing.
This house is named perfectly because of the breathtakingly sunsets one gets to enjoy each evening from this property. Our large family recently spent a relaxing week at this beautiful home. From the moment you step into this home until you leave you feel welcomed by the owner, Teresa Mincey.
This home is spacious enough for large families like ours. The boat dock is great for fishing, crabbing, kayaking, swimming, watching dolphins playing in the waters close to dock, and relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine while you watch the gorgeous sunsets. This vacation property has it all and more. It is a short walk to restaurants, or a golf cart ride away to everything. If you are looking for a place to relax and have lots of quiet time with your family this is the property to rent. My family and I are looking forward to visiting again in the near future.
The views and wildlife were spectacular. The house is well anointed and has ample space for everyone. Renting golf carts was the finishing touch to make a wonderful vacation.
Lisa, it was so nice having you and your family! I so hope you can get back as soon as you can! You all were great.
Teresa was such a hostess from her concerns during our stay to the delicious welcome snacks of cheese and meat tray, tasty loaf of bread, and a bottle of "spirits". Her home was most comfortable , the river views with playful dolphins was delightful. We would recommend this property to everyone. Thank you Miss Teresa..
Loved Sunset House
A spacious and comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood. An easy drive to the beach, Center St. or downtown Charleston, but the best thing about our stay here was enjoying dolphins, egrets, bufflehead ducks and gorgeous sunsets from the deck. Teresa is a gracious and charming host.
Jim and Kathy, it was a pleasure meeting you, two, and hosting you. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and especially all of the wild life! Did you guys see the family of dear that roam around in that little corner that you were staying?
I would love to have you guys back anytime that you can head back this way. You were lovely!
Thank you, again, for selecting the "Sunset" HOuse.
Enjoy the laid back life style at "Folly" ("Folly" is how "those in the know" refer to Folly Beach. That's important.
You have approximately 27 Restaurants and many great food trucks to select your chosen cuisine. A beautiful beach and sunsets that words can't describe. The locals will make you feel right at home as enjoy meeting visitors to "Folly" because it's like no other place on the earth and most appreciate that and embrace it.
First of all, you must take a stroll down Center St.to get your bearings straight, as it's located in the middle of the Island. Take advantage of all of the musical artists that are preforming in most eating establishments. Just pop in and take a listen, as it's always free of charge. Later in the evening, there's plenty of dancing or just taking a walk on our very safe beach.
Check out Blu one of the few ocean front Hotels. They have a great Tiki bar for all to visit and you're on the beach. Inside, check out the great restaurant and up scaled lounge called Tides. Be sure to go to the lobby for information on attractions, etc. in the Folly/Charleston area. Also while you're out and about, look for a Folly Current that's published locally and it will let you know what's going on around the beach while you're here.
We have a local shuttle to get you around for a very low price. You can also rent bikes or a golf cart to get around the island.
There is usually some type of festival or holiday that is being celebrated on a monthly basis. So there's usually something going on no matter when you're visiting "Folly" . We have fireworks on the 4th of July, Folly Gras in Feb., the Pub Crawl in March, Sand and Sea Festival in May, the Taste of Folly in Jan., a major Christmas Parade, and many more. Believe me the streets never "roll up" here!
The Folly River/Inlet offers so many activities. Fishing, boating, crabbing, shrimping, kayaking, and paddle boarding are always being enjoyed by all. You have to be on the River (West side) to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets ever! Be sure to seek this out when your here, If you aren't on the river for the sunset, go to the Sunset Cay Marina and have a nice chilled drink and partake in a beautiful experience of seeing the sun set at "Folly".
The Folly Beach Fishing Pier is another beautiful place to spend some time. Even if you're not going to fish, you can take a great walk and see all of Folly and the "Big" water. Take a picnic or grab an adult beverage from the great restaurant located at the pier. It's allowed to have alcohol if it's purchased at the pier.
The Pier hosts 4 to 5 Moonlight Mixers from May till early Fall. Listen to some great music (usually shag music) and "shake a leg" if you're in the mood.
Just relax, slow down, and enjoy the people and beauty of where you are, as there's no other place in the world known as "Gods Country" .
Thank you, Lord.
