Bring your boat and enjoy the Folly River this summer!
Available for July 4th week and several other weeks in our summer season!
*In regards to boats and other licensed watercraft, there is a $250 per week fee to dock boat on floating dock. All watercraft and boats must have proof of insurance provided as well as the make, model, and year of the vessel.
This "Gem" is showcased on the "Point" and well hidden in this upscale waterfront secluded area in Folly Beach rightfully named " Sunset Point." You have my word that you'll not experience any more breathtaking Sunsets and panoramic water views anywhere on the coast. With many surrounding pristine homes this home, rightfully named the "Sunset" House, offers all that you could expect for a restful and enjoyable vacation in the Lowcountry. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find so many extras for your comfort and a feeling of being right at home.
Located on the Folly Inlet, enjoy a 200 ft. walkway (the shortest one in the neighborhood), pierhead, and large floating dock. You'll not only enjoy the activities that the dock and inlet can offer but all of the beautiful wildlife all around you. The marshes surrounding you are truly panoramic and change colors depending on the season and the stage of the sun. Many wildlife species such as Egrets, pelicans, I've even spotted an occasional Eagle), and dolphin are all around the dock for you to enjoy and admire. Don't worry, No alligators here! Include the breathtaking sunsets and you'll think you're in heaven. This is one of the most beautiful homes (and a well kept secret) on the island and this perfect slice paradise is now available to you for a unforgettable vacation. Just drive down the private drive and run into a spectacular view of the inlet and surrounding waterways. This unique location offers unimaginable, views and one of the few private docks on Folly Beach while offering exceptional seclusion and privacy for your family. The beach (approximately 6 blocks away) or the new beach access points is about 3 blocks from the house. All of the excitement of Center Street is within walking distance, or rent a golf cart and tool around the entire 7-mile island.
This nicely appointed home with too many extras to list is tailored for those guests that like the luxury feel but still desire a casual vacation. The "Sunset" House offers 4 private bedrooms and 3 baths (plus an enclosed outdoor shower with HOT and cold water) is PERFECT for any holiday (I decorate for the Holidays), special occasion, or just a restful vacation.
Sleeping 9 in bedrooms and an adult, or 2 children, on the comfortable couch/futon in the sunroom, you'll enjoy water views from just about every room. A large family room fully equipped spacious kitchen, and airy sunroom gives you plenty of eating areas and room to spread out for your own privacy.
Rest on several nicely furnished decks, balconies, and covered seating areas overlooking the Folly Inlet. Have your morning coffee, enjoy beautiful scenery in any of these areas and keep up with the activities on the River/Inlet. The grounds are manicured and treated monthly for mosquitoes and pest (as well as the interior of the house), so you won't have to worry about all that unpleasantness. Also, enjoy that firepit for chilly nights.
This part of the island is the way to go when you just want to 'beat the 'crowds'. Lounge right in your 'backyard' on the dock and see all kinds of interesting sites changing by the minute. Boaters, water skiing, fishermen, shrimpers, paddle boarders, sail boats, shrimp boats, and kayakers. Join the fun for a short adventure down the river to Sunset Cay Marina or to Bowen's Island (or drive) for a great lunch or dinner. You can also head the other direction up the river and hang around the bridge to see who is going and coming and glad that you are not in all of that traffic. Or you might just want to bob around and soak in the sun on an oversized float with a nice cool drink in your hand while tied to the dock. No worries! You may even feel like catching your own dinner by just doing a bit of fishing shrimping or crabbing right off of the dock. One thing for sure is that you'll experience the most exquisite sunsets and peacefulness. Just take a breath and appreciate the beauty of it all by standing on the deck of home, you have 180-degree views of the Folly Inlet and many Charleston landmarks including the Morris Island Lighthouse and the Ravenel Bridge.

Off of the kitchen is a spacious laundry room with a washer, dryer, extra storage, a private shower. A half bath is off of the foyer and accessible through the laundry room.
A queen bedroom is located downstairs off of the family room. Three bedrooms are upstairs including the master suite with a very abundant master bath including a spacious jacuzzi and a large walk-in shower. Spectacular views of the Inlet and afar can be viewed from the master BR's bistro set on its own balcony.
Two additional bedrooms upstairs consist of a BR with a queen bed and a large high boy for plenty of storage, a walk-in closet, a flat screen TV and one window with a view of the water. The third BR has 1 double bed, 1 twin bed, a walk-in closet, a flat screen TV, and a nice double window with views of the water. There is a full hall bath with a bathtub and shower upstairs next to the 2 bedrooms.
The linen including sheets, blankets, throws, towels, and comforters are of very nice quality. The bathrooms have just what you would expect at home. Soft bath rugs, nice shower liners and shower curtains, body wash, and plenty of thick, soft towels. Bath rugs are changed out, along with the comforters, pillow shams, and blankets after each reservation. Fresh ones are replaced for your visit! You'll feel like you're in a B&B instead of your typical beach house.
Ample parking, including three plus parking bays below the house are available with an additional storage (BOAT) area, along with other parking spaces on the property. Entry to the house is also accessible off of the carport through the basement where you'll find additional storage for your things. I do have several beach chairs located there for your use along with sand toys, and other fun stuff. There is also a beach wagon, and an umbrella to use for the dock or the beach.
Also, you won't have to worry about those beach 'neighbors' that just might be renting closely next to you and may be into full vacation mode by overindulging and having" additional friends" over for the week. That invasiveness can certainly put a damper on your vacation. Instead, you can just take in all of the beauty and serenity of being on the water while grilling out, chilling out, and watching sunsets.
You boaters remember No boat landings to deal with. You know how that can be especially in the Summer when they can become quite interesting with the crowds. If you know what I mean! Just dock your boat, canoe, kayak, or jet ski at your dock and walk right into your home. Bring all of your floating toys and tie up to the dock. You can sit back in the cool water and take a look over at the bridge and watch all of the hustle and bustle of people waiting in line coming and going from the beach. But....not YOU!
