About the property

4 Bed + Loft, 2 Full baths,2 -1/2 Baths, Elevator, Sleeps 12 - Sun-Sun Rental

A *PET FRIENDLY* fully furnished, Folly Beach vacation home that's close to everything on the beach! Ocean is directly across the street - convenient access. Only 2 blocks to Folly Beach's shops, restaurants and pier. The home was specifically designed for your vacation with a vaulted great room, elevator, friendly kitchen and 4 sets of French doors spanning the front of home to maximize the view. Front master bedroom and loft have ocean views. Large front covered porch with hammock, BBQ & patio furniture. Sundeck for private sunbathing.

This elevated home has a large fenced back yard that is perfect for pets. (Our Great Dane and his playmate visit in the off season and they love it!).

Why this home over others at Folly Beach?: This home was specifically designed for your vacation! The owner chose the lot and house plan with your family in mind. It's on the West side of Folly Beach where there's less traffic and noise, but only 2 1/2 blocks - easy walking distance - to the restaurants, shops, pier, etc., on Center Street. The home is 2nd row with direct access to the beach. We are PET FRIENDLY and have an ELEVATOR (great for easy unpacking and settling in after a long trip - or for any guest not able to climb stairs) and a fenced in back yard. The home is also great for anyone using a wheel chair, with extra wide doors to one master bedroom, bathroom and shower. And , unlike front beach and most 2nd row homes on Folly, this home has wonderful parking. There is room for 3 cars under the home and room for 5 more cars on the driveways. Also unusual for a Folly vacation rental is the fenced in back yard. It's shaded by the house - a great place for everyone to relax out of direct sunlight.

Sunbathing with sun burnt friends? You'll love our combination sun deck and covered porch. It's large enough to spread out and get just the right tan. And the trees surrounding it add some nice privacy from nearby homes. For guests who had a little too much sun the day before, the covered part of the deck provides welcome relief. Hang out on the patio furniture or in the hammock and recuperate without missing any of the conversation!

About Misti and Robert Melton

Robert Melton's construction company built the home in 1999 specifically for vacation rentals. His business partner at the time was handicapped and suggested making the home handicap accessible, which was a great idea.

Misti and Robert Melton purchased this house in 1999

Why Misti and Robert Melton chose Folly Beach

The home is on the less traveled (west) end of Folly Beach and is directly across from the ocean, with public beach facilities and a handicapped public beach access. It is also just 2 1/2 blocks from Center Street and the Folly Beach Pier, which is a perfect walking distance from the home. Out of range of nightclub music yet close enough to easily walk back and forth to the home as often as guests like.

What makes this house unique

This is an elevated home with an elevator and a fenced in back yard. Pet friendly, well cared for and with a sundeck for sun lovers and a covered porch and hammock for friends and relatives who'd prefer shade. With one of the few 'street to street' driveways on the island, there's plenty of off street parking under and behind the home, which is at a premium on Folly Beach. All this at about 1/2 the price of an ocean front home; this home is a great deal!

Main floor: 4 queens; loft: 4 twins. Elevator, outdoor shower, covered porch and large sun deck with ocean view and hammock, direct access to ocean. Great parking! One of the FEW homes on Folly Beach with a driveway that connects the front and back entrances to the lot. You can pull under the home from the ocean side and drive out through the back of the property. Much easier for several cars to park, come and go without other guests having to move vehicles to allow people to leave. Note: the BBQ is fueled by a propane tank and if it empties during your stay, guests should exchange it for a full tank at the gas station on Center Street, Folly Beach. The cost is approximately $16.00.

We loved staying in this house! Our favorite place to be was the awesome deck.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed and more. The beach access was very nice being right across the street! The only complaint we have is the outdoor shower was only a trickle . There was a water hose that we used instead. I definitely would recommend this house !

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great feedback. I just installed a new shower head on the outdoor shower, so it's good to go!

Impressed on so many levels!

  • 5 of 5

We love this home. It's ideal for our dogs (fenced in yard), my elderly grandmother (the elevator & handicapped accessible layout), and our married children. We didn't need the loft space but I expect that's room for grandbabies to join us one year! Seriously, this home is extremely well stocked with bath towels, paper products, food wraps, and kitchen / bath soaps are already there. I've been renting beach homes for years and have never received such a comprehensive list of how the home is equipped, what to do (and don't do) on Folly Beach, directions, etc. Wait for the email - it's better than TripAdvisor or any of those ;) Home is clean, well thought out, ideal for pets, the deck is perfect for gathering together any time of day / night. The driveway / parking is prime! Heat and AC run well too. This is an excellent choice as it's close enough (but far enough) to the downtown action, restaurants, etc. that the young adults could do their thing, while we did ours. Our family calls this a "repeater" which is our ultimate compliment.

Family Wedding Celebration

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and the kitchen was very well equipped. The beach and public access were just across the street. Folly stores and restaurants were within walking distance.

The elevator was an absolute must because my brother is a 100% disabled Vietnam Veteran. Everyone wanted to use the handicapped shower because it was so nice!

We were easily able to accommodate both sides of the family-- 9 adults which included 2 adult nephews, 3 adult nieces, uncle, 2 aunts and mother of the groom.

The house was clean and nicely furnished with 4 queen size beds. It would be nice to have a sturdy chair in the handicapped bedroom, we moved a chair from the deck which worked well.

It was a great place to stay and the wedding went off well with a beautiful bride and a handsome groom!

I definitely would like to rent again and bring my 2 dogs. The outdoor fenced in space for the dogs would be an added plus. Sarah formerly from SC but now in northern VA
