Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 4) that is centrally located and freshly updated!

Once you park your car you will not need it until you are ready to go home! Your reservation of this unit comes with off street parking for ONE CAR in our parking area (Unit B Parking Area).

This is a quaint, beachy, quiet, older DOWNSTAIRS FIRST FLOOR UNIT OF A TRIPLEX only a block to the ocean with a life-guarded beach, and one block to the pier, and 'downtown' Folly Beach. Walk to all the bars, restaurants and beach with ease! From time to time, you can enjoy the acoustical music being played at Chico Feo down the street from the outside sitting area.

Our home was the "hotel" on Folly from the 1940's called The Marion Guest Quarters. The sign remains out front, but has received a "face lift" from one of our former tenants and now dons Blackbeard's Flag!! The history and charm of the home were two of the big selling points for us in purchasing the home. :) We have converted the home into three rental units - this unit is the downstairs front unit of the property.

As this is part of a TRIPLEX, guests need to be considerate of guests in the other units. As this is the DOWNSTAIRS FIRST FLOOR UNIT, sound can be heard from upstairs unit from time to time. We have priced this unit with consideration of this situation. We do include white noise machines in each bedroom just in case you are a light sleeper. If you are sensitive to sounds or looking for a private property rental, this rental WILL NOT be a good fit.

Additionally, if you are looking for a "party" rental, THIS PROPERTY WILL NOT BE A GOOD FIT. Driver’s license upload is required for all reservations as well as description of your car color, make, model & license plate. Parking on Folly can be tight and we have to ensure that the parking in front of our property is being utilized by our guests.

The property boasts 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with about 750 square feet. A/c, cable, flat screen TV, wireless internet, hotel style linens, bath towels, beach chairs, and a full kitchen, are provided. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room. New living room and dining furniture April 2017.

There is an outdoor grill area with chairs and an outdoor shower for after the beach.

We are so centrally located, you won’t need your car! Center Street, Bert’s Market, the fishing pier, and beach are 1-2 short blocks’ away. Come relax!

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY - 4 people.

Cleaning fee is an additional $100.

***We DO NOT have a washer & dryer, but West Hudson Laundromat is just down the street - http://www.westhudsonlaundry.com***

Snowbird rates available October - February.

About Eric and Marei Draper

We are the Draper family. 2 adults and three children and a DAWG (that's right a big white English bulldog, names Lulu)! We are from Atlanta and Charlotte, but we found each other and Folly Beach! We love Folly Beach!

Eric and Marei Draper purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Eric and Marei Draper chose Charleston Area

We bought this property years ago as an investment, with the long term hopes of living there one day. The old beach charm, character, and fantastic location we couldn't pass it up. We lived upstairs for the last couple of years and enjoy all the Folly has to offer. We do not currently live here full time, but it is our escape any chance we get and it will be a full time home again one day!

Folly Beach is so unique, laid back, and beautiful...and still only minutes away from historic downtown Charleston, SC.

Once you park you car you can walk to all of Folly Beach's offerings.

What makes this apartment unique

The sign out-front says it all! Teach Edward Teach! He is the pirate, Blackbeard (Edward Teach), and the inspiration for the name of the property: Eddy's Folly. He adorns the sign out front and greets all passersby with a sign that mimics the flag that caused fear in many a sailor.

Comfortable spot in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The property's description was accurate, checking in was smooth, and the rooms were clean and welcoming. Only a short walk to restaurants on the main strip and right around the corner from Bert's. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Great Location, Clean, and Excellent Owners

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay on Folly in this basement apartment. We were 3 people, my wife, myself, and our nearly two year old son. We picked this place due to it's location. It is within walking distance to everything on Folly. The beach is two blocks away, Bert's is right down the road :), and the shops are not even a block away.

The apartment was clean and included a full service kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the living room was enough room to move around. You can hear the people above you, but our neighbors were very well behaved and the sound machines were there in case we needed them.

The owners of this place were very responsive and helpful. One day, we misplaced our key and a big storm was about to hit the island. I texted Marei for help and she responded immediately with a text saying she was on her way. It made a big impression on us that she went our of her way to be responsive to us. She arrived shortly after my text (~ 20 minutes) with a new key and a smile. This meant a lot to us.

Overall, it was a good Labor Day weekend, and we would definitely enjoy staying here again.

Good location

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and very convenient to the beach and restaurants. No complaints except for the guests upstairs were walking/stomping back and forth over our bedroom for what seemed like an hour early Saturday morning.

Convenient and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect sized house for 2 ladies on a Girls' Weekend! It is very close to the beach (Tides where the good chairs are) and very close to restaurants and stores. We didn't drive all weekend! The house is well-equipped with everything you need to enjoy Folly!
