Description from owner

Synthetic Fragrance Free vacation rental.

2 BR King & Queen, 3 BA - sleeps up to 4 adults - total max. occupancy 4. Configurations over typical usage of the 2 beds considered but may incur add'l fee.

Light airy end unit featuring hardwood floors throughout and 12' ceilings in newest upscale community in the heart of Folly Beach. An ideal eclectic getaway in lower density, well designed complex with Caribbean flair. Suitable for 1-2 couples or small family.

Peaceful, perfectly situated location away from the hustle and bustle of summer front beach atmosphere, yet an easy walk to beach access points and to restaurants etc. on Center Street.

Electric piano in living room delights keyboardists and vocalists alike.

We strive to keep our home synthetic fragrance free by cleaning with natural products and essential oils as well as avoiding chemical pesticides etc. Seventh Generation scent free laundry detergent as well as natural air freshener and insect repellent etc. provided. We ask that guests refrain from using products containing synthetic fragrance while in residence. If advice is needed as to where/how to obtain naturally scented personal care items we're glad to assist.

Spacious... room to be together.. room to be apart:

We've not converted the small study into a dedicated less desirable 3rd bedroom, electing to retain it as a multi-use space instead. Our guests are generally more mature adults seeking better quality accommodations and a more open relaxed atmosphere. Study includes yoga mat etc. as well as a full size drafting table enabling accommodation of other pursuits. There is also a sofa should you have an extra family member joining you for a day or two. This room is truly meant as another space to retreat, design, think and read, not meant to be pressed into full service as sleeping accommodation for a full week. However, in a pinch, for a couple nights it'll do.

The county boat landing is just a few blocks away. The back side of Folly offers wonderful places to kayak and paddleboard. We never know what we're going to see. The island is also a great place to jog and bicycle, plus miles and miles of beach to enjoy. Outdoor shower for a quick rinse with hot and cold water makes beach excursions so much easier and we also have a dog bath in the garage with hot and cold water too.

Please contact us for our webpage address for a wealth of add'l info. including scans of guest journal comments, floor plans, online weekly cost estimator, area info., etc. (No longer permitted to include link to our page on this listing site... sorry.)

About the area

Referred to locally as 'The Edge of America' Folly is well known for it's eclectic mix of inhabitants and has long been attractive to the artist community. In addition to having exceptionally clean air, Folly is one of the best surfing areas on the east coast. There is much to do, or not do, depending on one's goals. Historic Charleston peninsula is about 20 minutes via car. There are things to do year round in this area. Historic gardens to see, historical sites, Arts Festivals, marathons, kids activities, there is no end to it. One can choose to be as active, or laid back, as one desires. Bear in mind Folly Road traffic can get a bit congested during rush hour and nice weather weekends which is a contributing factor to our choice of Sunday turnover day.

“Worked out well for me”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2016

In all my years of traveling (3 decades) and renting many different homes, this was a first for me! Cheryl and Michael have created a home that is "synthetic fragrant free" and it is very clean! There are non-toxic, green products throughout the house to use when needed. I usually have to go and purchase most of these things when I get to my destination. So wonderful to have that provided. What made this even more special for me was the fact that I was on a cleanse the 12 days I stayed there, and that is when one can be "particularly sensitive" to synthetics and toxins. I really felt healthy and slept well. I was also very pleased when I realized I had left some personal items and Cheryl shipped them back to me and did not look to charge me. That was very gracious. So, I highly recommend this townhome!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Sanctuary Indeed! ✰✰✰✰✰

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. We had the best time! It was by far the most comfortable place we have ever stayed in. The king bed felt so luxurious and the pottery and art work were exquisite. We so appreciated the attention to detail, like making our Winston feel welcome with the dog bowls and the couch cover. He had a great time too, and made quite a few friends at the dog park downtown! (Thanks for the tip about Dr. Bach's Remedy, it worked well). Also, we're now big converts of Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap- we stopped at Earth Fare to stock up before we left. All in all, our main goal for the trip was rest and rejuvenation. We couldn't recommend a better place for achieving that and we are already looking forward to returning sometime in the near future.

Chris, Tim & Winston

Every expectation was exceeded! ✰✰✰✰✰

After reading the previous reviews and looking at the images our expectations were pretty high. I have to say they were exceeded. Where to begin…

The keypad lock system was wonderful. Being able to go to the beach and not worrying about a house key was great. When we split up we didn’t have to worry about if the kids could get in.

The garage and opener were another big plus. I travel with allot of photography gear and being inside meant not having to unload all the gear every eve.

My two teenagers put at least 100 miles on your Beach Cruisers. They biked up and down the main streets and on the beach at low tide several times.

Much has already been said about your beautiful home. The decorating is more than tasteful. The beds were so comfortable getting home to our bed was a little disappointing. The kitchen has really made my life a little more difficult. The wife now has a long remodel list and you kitchen is the blueprint! ?

From the screened in porches to the outdoor shower, I could just go on and on… Thank you for making our 2010 summer vacation so restful and enjoyable.

Got allergies?? Look no further! ✰✰✰✰✰

We had a fabulous time staying in this truly "Chemical free" town home. If you suffer from allergies - this is the best place we have ever found! Cheryl also has everything you need when taking your pet, even a special sofa that our dog "Ginger" absolutely loved! My husband and I will definitely be staying here on future visits to Folly.

Beach Vacation ✰✰✰✰✰

We've traveled a bunch and this was one of our best vacations. Our only regret is that we only stayed for one week. The listing description and the photos of this property are exactly as they appear, and if you're looking for clean this is the place. We're clean freaks and upon arrival it was spotless.

Michael and Cheryl (property owners) are spot on and didn't miss an amenity detail.

After a day we felt like we lived there.

If you're looking for a clean,seamless, laid back, enjoyable beach vacation - look no further.

Perfect getaway! ✰✰✰✰✰

This is our second visit to this wonderful home. It is immaculately maintained and so close to everything. Having bikes there to use is quite handy to explore. It's a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and pier. We just love staying at this home. I always sleep like a baby in the king size tempurepedic bed. We can't wait for our next visit. I love working with the owners and feel like I'm working with longtime friends. They are very easy to work with, caring, helpful, and honest.

Superb house in Folly Beach! ✰✰✰✰✰

After driving for 22 hours with two kids we were really hoping the house would be as nice as the pictures. It was even better! Not only are Cheryl and Michael really nice and easy to deal with, but the house is just perfect. Close enough to the beach to walk, but not too close so it still feels really private. Really nicely furnished with all the amenities and very well maintained. We felt like the owners really cared about us and wanted to make sure we had the best stay possible. And they have succeeded, the kids are already asking when we are coming back to "their house" on "their beach"!

Spring Break Getaway ✰✰✰✰✰

We did not know what to expect but our expectations were fulfilled and more. The property is exceptionally clean and well maintained and beautifully furnished in every way, Park your car and leave it there for your entire stay unless you wish to make the 15 minute drive to Charleston. A short walk to the beach and every restaurant on the island. We would absolutely recommend staying here and hope to return ourselves.

Perfect Honeymoon! ✰✰✰✰✰

We stayed here the week of June 7th, 2015 for our honeymoon. The townhouse was absolutely wonderful, exceptionally clean, and the location was outstanding! Michael and Cheryl were super helpful and friendly! They provided chemical free products which is was very helpful since we do not have any allergies and did not already have any of the required soaps or detergents. The bikes included with the house were a big hit with us, we rode them just about everywhere! We could be at the beach, or at one of the many restaurants or shops in just a few minutes. The entire week we were there we hardly left Folly Beach because we enjoyed exploring the island on the bikes so much! We loved cooking breakfast in the mornings, and it was awesome that the kitchen had just about everything that you could ever need or want in a kitchen! The enclosed balconies were perfect to relax in, and the bed was extremely comfortable! We loved our stay, and we hope to visit Folly Beach again soon!

Dog Spa! ✰✰✰✰✰

This is our 5th year staying at the Folly Townhome. We will be back for a 6th. Spotless, allergen free, chemical free, great location and owners and a Dog Spa! Need I say more?

Feels like home! ✰✰✰✰✰

This was the third time that my family and I have stayed at this home. My use of the word home here instead of property is deliberate. When I go on vacation I don't like to stress about the cleanliness or comfort of the place where we stay. This is the only vacation home that I have ever revisited, as it fits that bill. The owners are incredibly helpful and informative. They have outfitted this home as if they live there. Here is a list of some of my favorite things that are provided at this home: temperpedic mattress in the master, Bose wave radio, huge garage, mostly hardwood floors, unique furniture, and vast array of supplied amenities from bikes to Brita filtered water. Stay here. You won't be disappointed. Even the lazy susan in the kitchen cabinets is spotless. No where else would that be clean.

Loved: cleanliness; fine quality throughout; owner's care in helping us be comfortable, especially me - a chemically sensitive individual; comfort; kind, clear notes left to help us keep things nice for all who would follow; fluffy towels; good mattresses; Bose stereo; well-equipped kitchen; workout room; drafting table and magnifying lamp.

I loved our stay. ✰✰✰✰✰

We had the pleasure of staying at Cheryl and Michael's beautiful townhome. It was incredible. When we walked in, it was clean, fresh and welcoming and our doggie loved it as much as we did. I especialy loved the porches. I will stay again every chance I get. The owners could not be easier to deal with. They are fair and right there if you need them. I loved our stay.
