About the property

2 Bed 1 Bath* (Sleeps 4 ) 1 Block To Life Guarded Beach & Center Street*

Once you park your car you will not need it until you are ready to go home! Your reservation of this unit comes with one off street parking space in our parking area.

This is a quaint, beachy, quiet, older first floor apartment cottage only a block to the ocean with a life-guarded beach, and one block to the pier, and 'downtown' Folly Beach. Walk to all of the bars, restaurants and beach with ease! From time to time, you can enjoy the acoustical music being played at Chico Feo down the street from the outside sitting area.

Our home was the "hotel" on Folly from the 1940's called The Marion Guest Quarters. The sign remains out front, but has received a "face lift" from one of our former tenants and now dons Blackbeard's Flag!! The history and charm of the home were two of the big selling points for us in purchasing the home. :) We have converted the home to three rental units - this unit is the downstairs rear unit of the property.

As this is part of a triplex, guests need to be considerate of guests in the other units. If you are looking for a "party" rental, THIS PROPERTY WILL NOT BE A GOOD FIT. We do require a copy of drivers licenses to be uploaded at time of booking as well as description of color, model, make and license plate for your car. Parking can be quite limited on Folly and we need to ensure that the cars parked on the property are those of our guests.

The property boasts 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with about 750 square feet. Ac, cable, with a flat screen, wireless internet, hotel style linens, bath towels, and a full kitchen, are provided. There is a lovely fenced side yard with wrought iron table and chairs as well as a back deck and fenced in back yard along with an outdoor grill area.

We are so centrally located, you wont need your car! Center street, Bert’s Market, the fishing pier, and beach are 1-2 short blocks’ away. Come relax.

Property sleeps up to 4 people.

Property was thoroughly renovated. New paint throughout and flooring in the living room and new bedroom carpet have been installed. Renovated bathroom boasts a new vanity, toilet, paint, flooring, exhaust fan, and bead board. Renovated kitchen has new cabinets, counter tops, sink, lighting, flooring and appliances. New couch, recliner, dining table 4/18

***We do not have a washer & dryer, but West Hudson Laundromat is just down the street -***

About Eric and Marei Draper

We are the Draper family - two adults, three children and a DAWG (that's right a big white English bulldog, names Lulu)! We are from Atlanta and Charlotte, but we found each other and Folly Beach! We love Folly Beach!

Eric and Marei Draper purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Eric and Marei Draper chose Folly Beach

We bought this property years ago as an investment, with the long term hopes of living there one day. The old beach charm, character, and fantastic location we couldn't pass it up. We lived upstairs for the last couple of years and enjoy all the Folly has to offer. We do not currently live here full time, but it is our escape any chance we get and it will be a full time home again one day!

Folly Beach is so unique, laid back, and beautiful...and still only minutes away from historic downtown Charleston, SC.

Once you park you car you can walk to all of Folly Beach's offerings.

What makes this apartment unique

The sign out-front says it all! Teach Edward Teach! He is the pirate, Blackbeard (Edward Teach), and the inspiration for the name of the property: Captain's Quarters. He adorns the sign out front and greets all passersby with a sign that mimics the flag that caused fear in many a sailor.

clean and comfortable, great location, but kind of noisy

  • 3 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in this building (there are multiple apartments and we've tried two, one upstairs and one downstairs). We love the location and the relaxed feel, and the property is clean and welcoming. The one drawback is that you can hear the other renters extremely well. Unless you are all on the same schedule this can be kind of frustrating (and tiring) at 2am.

Comfortable; great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband, myself and our dog stayed for 5 nights. It was spacious for all of us in a great location for the price. The owners were on property while we were there.

Pros: open kitchen, beach chairs provided, parking for one car, great location, comfortable, as expected, responsive owners.

Cons: a lot of mosquitos outside (which may be the folly beach trend), we had a friend over who stayed at folly tides and her son could not stay long in this vrbo cause of his allergies, not sure the cause. not much charm, not a lot of running room for our dog (but we took her to a great park and on the beach everyday)

The unit was extremely clean upon checking in. Much more spacious than one might think. Very private

  • 5 of 5

The accessibility to the beach and Center Street make the Captains Quarters, Unit C a must stay for anyone. We love the location and accommodations so much that we have stayed there the last 4 years. Have never had any issues whatsoever with anything but have witnessed the owners on site taking care of a bed frame early one evening, that in itself speaks of commitment. We love Folly Beach and the Edward Teach House.

Charming, clean & cool

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about it! Comfortable, good air conditioning, convenient to beach, Bert's & downtown. Quiet & clean. Owners were easy to work with & prompt in responding to our questions. No doubt we will book this again.

Great little getaway on Folly.

  • 5 of 5

Close to everything: 2 blocks from the beach, 1 block from Center St. Quiet and private. Clean and good amenities. It was really nice to have a full kitchen, for those days you'd rather stay in for dinner. My husband, daughter, myself and our dog had a relaxing and fun stay. We will definitely stay there again!
