About Cindy Ashley

After 28 years, Cyn has retired from a teaching career. I am involved with the South Carolina Master Naturalist program, Yoga and Nia.

Den, an architect, continues to design and build projects. Ashley's tree house is one of my best projects. Cyn and I hand cleared the property and then spent a year building this magical place.

Cindy Ashley purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Cindy Ashley chose Folly Beach

We were driving down Cooper street and noticed an almost failing down, loosely nailed " for sale" sign. The property, looking thru the dense jungle growth, had major oak and palms trees. It seemed that this property had never been cleared. We fell in love with the possibility of living in this beautiful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Designing and then building one's own tree house retreat is truly a joyous adventure. We did not want to build a house at a beach but rather a beach house. Our family and friends enjoy the openness, the unexpected sculpture of the spaces. The morning view from the upstairs sleeping loft into the curved oak limbs in a treat and great way to start the day. One morning there was a raccoon in that tree looking back at us!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the treehouse. The place is just amazing! The location is fabulous, a short 1/2 block from the ocean, and right by the downtown area so you never have to deal with parking. The place itself has everything you need for your stay and is beautiful! We loved the deck and sat out there every morning and evening, and even ate most dinners outside. Our kids loved the upstairs loft and had lots of fun writing and coloring while sitting on the catwalk. We look forward to returning!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so charming and convenient - it has everything you'll need and a layout that affords just the right amount of privacy while enjoying time with your family. We were steps from the beach, tons of restaurants, coffee - you name it. Our kids loved having their own balcony and we appreciated being able to open windows and a sliding glass door to listen to the ocean at night off the first floor master. The owners were kind and helpful. I'm not sure the community is quite as bike friendly as it once was, but the home is in such a great location you won't need them to get to places.

An early morning walk through the old coast guard station to watch the sunrise at Morris lighthouse is a great way to start a day. Then a short car trip to Bowens Island to eat shrimp and oysters, drink and watch the sunset over the marsh is a spectacular ending.
