Vacation Rentals at Folly Beach

Oceanfront Accommodation

Little Peace of Heaven – For Couples

This 1-bed condo is located on the second floor of a three-story complex block facing the Atlantic Ocean.

While it says it sleeps four, there is one bedroom with a king-size bed, one bathroom, a compact kitchen with a dining table, a living area with a smart TV, air conditioning, and a shared washer/dryer.

However, guests don’t tend to spend much time indoors as the accommodation has a patio and its own boardwalk that leads out onto the beach.

Plus, the Center Street entertainment, such as Rita’s and Coconut Joe’s, is a stone’s throw, or stumble, away!

Note: While the rental is a pet-free space, the condo is not, so there may be dogs next door or in the shared utility.

Seacoast Villa 6 – Small Group Ocean View

This 3-bed oceanfront rental offers unobtrusive views of the beach.

The open-plan layout has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, a washer, a dryer, a living space with a wall-mounted flat-screen TV, air conditioning, and a balcony for sunset watching!

There is also an elevator.

Location-wise, the condo is 1.5 blocks from the downtown area, where you’ll find rooftop bars, dark pubs, coffee shops, late-night restaurants, and souvenir shops.

Loggerhead’s is the closest restaurant, which has a variety of spaces indoors and outdoors. Expect crowds to watch big games on the rooftop TVs; a buzzing environment.

Note: Grills are not permitted at the rental.

Stay @ The View – Infinity Pool

This 4-bed modern condo is located at the Folly Beach Country Park end of Folly Island, which tends to be a little quieter than the stretch of beach near Downtown as day guests have to pay to enter the park in exchange for access to parking and restrooms.

However, if you reserve Stay @ The View, parking is included, as well as private access to sandy shores!

The 10-person beachfront accommodation offers four bedrooms decorated in a calm coastal style, 4.5 bathrooms, multiple communal areas (indoors and out), a fully equipped kitchen with an island, a washer, a dryer, indoor games, and air conditioning.

The outside space features an infinity pool, sun loungers, cornhole lawn games, as well as a screened porch to keep the bugs out.

The screened porches and two oceanfront decks provide plenty of scope for relaxing to the sound of the Atlantic waves.
