Custom Oceanfront Home w/ Beach Access, 2 Large Decks, Elevator, Gourmet Kitchen

Beautifully outfitted with a gourmet kitchen, an in-home elevator, top-of-the-line furnishings, and incredible ocean views, this oceanfront home is one of the finest that Folly Beach has to offer. If you're looking for upscale style, ample space for a group, and direct walkover access to the sandy beach, look no further!

This beachfront escape was custom built as a warm and inviting family getaway. The decor has been thoughtfully updated from top to bottom, including top-quality beds, elegant indoor furnishings, and comfortable furniture in the beautiful outdoor spaces. Begin each morning in the gourmet kitchen, where you'll find stainless steel appliances (including a gas range, a dishwasher, a wine fridge, and an oven with a warming drawer), a peninsula breakfast bar, and your choice of a coffee maker, a French press, and a Keurig to prepare your morning joe. Sit down for breakfast beneath the grand chandelier, or bring your plates outside to one of the two oceanfront decks - one shaded and one sunny, offering everything from a cushioned swing to a high-top table and chairs. At night, there are six bedrooms to choose from, including three with oceanfront views and deck access.

What's nearby:
This beachfront home is located on the west side of Folly Beach, approximately nine blocks from Center Street's eclectic collection of shops and restaurants. The sand is mere steps away across the private walkover, with Folly Beach County Park - which features a designated swimming area with a lifeguard come summer - only a quarter-mile down the road. You'll also be within walking distance of Sunset Cay Marina (less than half a mile north), which has a fun little store where you can grab a cold beverage and even arrange for a boat slip rental.

This is our 3rd Thanksgiving at Gypsy Tide and while the oceanfront location is amazing, the home was below expectations on many fronts. Lots of stains on the carpets, several lights out including the living room lamp that was missing one of its outlet prongs, front door missing its door piston, blinds in upstairs street side window broken, and oven was filthy. Again, it’s a beautiful home but it needs some tlc, especially for guests who paid almost $8800 for the week.
Leslie F. Nov 2022
This home is well appointed. It had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again!!
Anne B. Oct 2022
Gorgeous beach and views! The screened-in porch is awesome; it acts as a big additional room. The home is beautiful yet so charming and comfortable.
Jordan L. Oct 2022
This house is huge and absolutely gorgeous! It was perfect for our big group, and was kid and baby friendly! By far the biggest, nicest property we've stayed on in Folly. The beach on the west side of the island is amazing! Again, perfect for little ones because of the tide pools in the afternoon. The Vacasa crew was also very friendly and helpful! We will be using them again!
Michael C. Sep 2022
We loved he house. Beach was great. House was clean. Elavator came in handy. Best vacation property we have ever rented. Will go back next year
Sharon S. Aug 2022
The house was perfect for our extended family trip to Folly Beach. The appliances sucked as someone had to lean against over door to keep closed. Ice maker dies first day.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Sharon. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for the issues you encountered with the appliances. Our local team is aware and working to address these items. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you'll give us another opportunity to host you with an improved stay.
Barbara J. Jul 2022
This is third time renting this home for family get togethers. It is a wonderful house and we use all six bedrooms and everyone knows what room is theirs!! We totally enjoy the wonderful porch for late night sessions!! We will be back!
Barbara R. Jul 2022
Our large family had a great time in this house and in the ocean. The elevator was definitely an asset when hauling the belongings for fourteen up and down. The kitchen has a bit of a cumbersome arrangement, but we managed to cook and eat plenty of food in spite of it. It was very clean and we loved not having to do all the cleanup after.
Rachel S. Jul 2022
Gypsy Tide is a huge, beautiful beach front home with more than enough room for all 14 of us - ages 12 to 80! It is clean and well appointed with a great screen porch and space to spread out. We love the west end of Folly and Gypsy Tide provides a fantastic backdrop to our annual family beach week. We are already booked for next summer!
Sherry P. Jun 2022
We had a great time at Gypsy Tide. The management communication was very quick and easy and they were very accommodating. We’ve been there before and we will return again next year. Highly recommend.
James F. Jun 2022
Huge, fit the whole family. On the beach, clean. Even has an elevator.
Davis W. Jan 2022
House was very well furnished, very clean, BUT.....the fridge quit working after the first day and we had to use a cooler to keep stuff cold.. Threw out all meat/dairy products we bought. Freezer worked great!! Gentlemen came by to look at it but was unable to fix. Bad timing for getting repairs on the week after Christmas, and understandable. Would have given the 5 star rating otherwise..........Thanks
Manager response:
Davis, thank you for your thoughtful feedback. We are happy to hear that you had an overall enjoyable stay at Gypsy Tide. We are so sorry about the fridge! We have our local manager working with the supplier to have this replaced with a brand new one as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued patience while we worked to resolve this. We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!
REBECCA M. Oct 2021
Great home for our family trip. Love the large screen porch.
Andre R. Oct 2021
This is a beautiful home and a wonderful location. The owners thought of everything that you could possibly need inside the home and at the beach. I will be looking to rent this home for a future vacation.
Karen L. Sep 2021
Location, location, location! Right on the beach with private access. Lots of amenities and space for 6 adults and 8 children!
Peter I. Aug 2021
This premium property worked well for our three families. We had a great week.
Edwin H. Jul 2021
This was the fourth straight summer we've stayed at Gypsy Tide and it has become a valued family tradition. The house easily accommodates grandparents, parents and children, giving each individual family the room and privacy required. Access to the beach, on-site amenities, a bunkhouse for the little ones, garage space and network connectivity all combine to make the venue a home run each summer.
Sherry P. Jun 2021
Plenty of room. Great location. Definitely we’ll be going back to Gypsy Tide next summer.
Lisa R. Jun 2021
Our original house had a maintenance issue so Vacasa graciously switched us to this magical beachfront property. Now that we've gotten a taste of what a "premier property" is like we'll definitely be back. I love it when bad luck turns into fantastic luck 😁🌴🥥 If you want views of the ocean in an extremely roomy relaxing place, this is it.
Mark B. May 2021
We LOVED our stay at Gypsy Tide. It was perfect for our group of seven adults and three teens. The house is every bit as nice as the listing suggests and the beach is beautiful. The house is a mile down from the retail zone of Folly Beach, so the amenities are close, but you are far enough away that things are much more low key. The main area is bright, the views are expansive and because the lower deck is screened we were able to leave the sliding doors open and let the sea breezes and the sound of the waves in. The ocean facing bedrooms are truly magnificent and the others are just fine. We also loved the deck facing the road, which looks at palm trees and gets the evening sun. Our days were in the low 70’s, so that was nice. This is a place where the actual experience was better than we were expecting and we hope to return some day.

P.S. The place was very clean and well equipped. The only thing it didn’t have were beach towels, so bring them if you need them.
Gus P. Mar 2021
The house is a perfect place for your stay. We loved how open, and inviting the home was. The pictures do not to justice to the home. It is the perfect beach house to host family and friends, it is close enough to the busy town of Folly where you can always find a place to eat, or go out, but far enough away that you're able to have a nice slow relaxing stay. The back porch is amazing, over looks the ocean, and perfect to start your morning and end your day. Beautiful home, will absolutely rent again.

The house was beautiful and well taken care of. The access to the beach was perfect. The furnishings were comfortable. The rooms were spacious. We loved that there were two bays to parks our cars. One thing I would suggest is that there be reflective signage near the entrances to the driveways with the number of the house. It is hard to see the number of the house at night.

Gypsy Tide exceeded all of our expectations!! The home was even better than the pictures and the views were amazing!! My family and I (group of 10 and age range 12-84) had plenty of room and were super comfortable! The property was clean, beautiful, and just as described! We can’t wait to come back!

We had a great time at the beach! I love the oceanfront location. The screen porch is wonderful for socializing no matter the weather, but furnitures need to be updated. A few minor repairs needed-On upstair bedrooms: curtain does not open, water does not drain in the shower, door does not lock, etc.. Kitchen cookwares need to be updated.

I will start by mentioning the stay. The stay was great. We really enjoyed the house. Very spacious and we had what we needed. One thing I would fix is the ceiling has mold growing on it off the family room by the sliding doors. The kitchen cabinets are peeling. And the sinks/tubs didn`t train well. Would fill up. A little drano would work wonders. That is just words to improve. But, we really enjoyed being right on the beach. And the house really is great! When I called the 8 days before we wanted to stay I initially spoke with Tony. He was great to talk with & work with. The next day when I called to book I got Summer and she was snippy right off the bat. She was argumentative. Was questioning what Tony & I had discussed and agreed to, made me feel like I was lying or making it up. I was looking to book one of your larger properties for 3 days for almost $5,000 and I was catching major attitude. If we didn`t want that house and we weren`t trying to do it last minute, I would have not tolerated it and I certainly would not have rented that house or one from your rental company. After I told her what Tony & I had discussed she told me I was `A lot` and `Extra`. First off, I have never been called that in my life. Secondly, I am calling to rent a property from you all for quite a bit of money. I am a Broker/Realtor, in the customer service business myself. What kind of customer service is that? I was talked to terribly, I was shocked. As I mentioned, it was all I could do to bite my tongue after the way she was talking to me. But, I thought of our families, this house, how we all wanted to go to the beach, so I didn`t say anything disrespectful back. I told her to talk to Tony to verify what we had talked about. Once she did and called me back she changed her tune, tried to be nice. Because she knew at that point everything I was saying was the truth. I think your seller should know that if this is the way Summer talks to potential renters and they don`t know it, you could potentially be losing a lot of business. Definitely bad for your rental company, but especially the owner. I was quite bothered and offended by her treatment towards me.

We had a great visit. This is the second time we have rented Gypsy Tide for a family reunion and all of us (ten people) think this house is wonderful Lots of room for all of us and of course, right on the beach. All our grandchildren were there and loved it too. The house is very well appointed and Folly Beach Rental provide many amenities that other rental companies do not include - such as trash bags, soaps, paper towels and even kleenex These little things make a big difference when packing for a week stay!!! We did have some minor problems with the house and called Beth at Folly Beach Rental and she was quick to do what needed to be done so that we could enjoy our stay! The owner is coming this week and I am hopeful they will be able to fix some of these minor problems - and maybe sharpen some of the knives in the kitchen!!! We only do this once every two years with all of the children and it is so nice that we KNOW this house and do not need to do a big search every time. Makes all of us happy!!

July 2020 was the third consecutive summer we`ve booked time here, and the experience was - once again - terrific. Given the pandemic, we called the staff prior to arriving to discuss measures being taken to clean the property between guests. Our call was openly welcomed, our questions patiently answered, and our concerns significantly eased with the new protocols Follytime had implemented to protect its guests. The week itself? Spectacular. Three generations of family enjoyed sun-filled days, plenty of room on the beaches, and warm summer evenings on the screened-in porch listening to the surf. We`ve already booked a fourth stay for Summer 2021. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company. Please note that the home name has changed.

Nice house and location. Garage and fridge smelled of rotten fish or animal, and one of the bedspreads has a massive blood-like stain on it when we checked in. Dishes had food crust on it- dishwasher not very effective so we had to hand wash most things. 10am check out was pretty early considering we had a 4pm check in already and paid over a grand per night. The 10am checkout time also didn’t leave us enough time to clean thoroughly, especially for our sized group. Great location and had a great weekend otherwise.

We rented Gypsy Tide on Folly Beach on the weekend of Dec 19-22, 2019. When we walked into the main living room, we gasped at the absolutely beautiful house and at the views of the ocean. Each room was delightfully decorated in upscale linens and room décor. The kitchen had just about everything one would need (We cooked Christmas dinner for 14 people!), including three different ways to make our coffee, which they provided. The bathrooms were well-appointed. The elevator helped us with our loading and unloading. I can`t imagine what else we would have needed for our stay. I can`t finish this review without speaking to how accommodating the staff was at Folly Beach Rentals. I was, admittedly, quick to call them with the silliest of questions. All of my questions were answered very kindly, very patiently and always with, `call us back if you have any more questions!` I highly recommend Gypsy Tide Beach House for a perfect get-away vacation.

Beautiful home with gorgeous view! This home was perfect for six fraternity brothers and wives who attended college in the 70s. The home lacks nothing for a long visit. The kitchen was amazing and fully stocked and beds were comfy. We enjoyed our reunion during a unique Harvest Moon at GypsyTide.

We LOVED our stay at Gypsy Tide. The house is spacious, stylish, comfortable, clean, super close to the sunset end of the island and we appreciated the more private location, away from Center Street. Really enjoyed the tea kettle, griddle, really well-stocked kitchen including plenty of spices, dish soap, trash bags, etc. Enjoyed the full length mirrors which are often scare in rentals. The elevator was so convenient, all towels were well stocked- including bath and beach towels, loved the bonus beach items, games, laundry appliances, black out blinds, decor, TVs, gorgeous light fixtures, etc. We felt the check-in and check-out processes were very smooth and stress-free. My communication with Tommy was top-notch & he was very polite, professional & easy to talk to. The only suggestions we have would be to update the outside of the home a bit, to add a full length mirror to the bunk room, and of course a pool/hot tub would always be amazing! We plan on booking again next year- loved everything about Gypsy Tide & rental services! Thank you so very much.

Beautiful house and location for family beach week. Well stocked kitchen (the only thing that could improve it would be a second refrigerator) and plenty of amenities throughout the property. Large bedrooms and plenty of space for everyone. Very clean and ready to go at check-in. This is our second summer at Gypsy Tide and we will be back!

I cannot think of anything that would make it better! We had a fabulous time. Loved the house, location, the beach, the town, all of it! Someone does need to clean out the games in cabinet below TV in family room. It’s a mess. We brought our own games so we didn’t try to use those in the cabinet. We left a puzzle that we had put together. We put it in cabinet close to sliding door. The only other complaint was that the pullout bed in bunk room was not good to sleep on so they used the sleep mattress on the floor. My family loved it enough, they were trying to see when we could come back. I told them I had to “reload” the finance column. Thank you for providing such an enjoyable place to stay. We will be back someday. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company. Please note that the home name has changed.

A terrific location for a multi-generational family beach vacation...our children, their spouses, and their children all shared a wonderful week together in Gypsy Tide. Enough room so that everyone had the space they needed. Only steps away from a beach that was never overcrowded. Particularly love the large screened-in porch that allowed for nightcaps while listening to the ocean and feeling the breeze...but without the fear of insects. This was our second booking at GT, and we`re already booked for Summer 2020. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is a great home in a great location!!! Our extended family spent a long Holiday weekend at the house and it couldn`t have been better. There was plenty of room for everyone and the kids even had their own room (which pleased us AND them) with their own TV. The screened porch was our favorite spot, I think. We did cook nearly every day and the kitchen was well stocked. The representatives were very responsive with any question we had. One of the best places we have stayed !! Can`t wait to come back and make more memories. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company. Please note that the home name has changed.

We are a group of 8 ladies who have been friends for over 40 years. This is our second year at Gypsy Tide and we have already booked for 2020. This house is perfect. The most well-stocked kitchen I seen in a rental home. We spend a lot of time on the wonderful screened porch. We vacation together every year and this is the best house we`ve stayed in.

It was an amazing home. It was spacious, with the amount of bathrooms for 9 women to get ready! The view was breathtaking and the screened in porch was an extra positive surprise. We had a wonderful time and thank you for allowing us to stay at this beautiful home. We could not get the wifi or internet access to work but that would be the only issue we had the entire time.

Gypsy Tide is an awesome house for a large group and the location is perfect for Folly Beach. It was nice to have all the beach accessories and toys not mentioned in the property description. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need and the screened in porch is the place to be day and night. Thanks for prompt response to our extra needs and one small repair during our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The beach front location is great. The screened-in porch is the best thing about the house. Though, we could not locate any switch for fans/lights; so, for example, when someone wanted to sit on porch to read, could not do so. The bedrooms are spacious, but the bed linens could be better quality. Our group was 8, so seating ok but think a couple more chairs in living room would be more comfortable. We did no cooking, but the kitchen appeared to be well equipped. We appreciated the ice maker! We had just one car; but availability of 4 parking spaces is a bonus.

What a fabulously maintained property! The only suggestion would be to have more dish towels on hand and black wash cloths. We ate in every night and had the perfect amount of kitchen items. The appliances are first class. Is there a place you could put more towel rods? We made do with hanging them on doorknobs upstairs. All 12 women plan to return in two years. Thank you!

The Company that runs this house was over the top customer service. Carla called every day to see if we needed ANYTHING. This house was absolutely stunning. It was clean, organized and stocked to the nines. 9 people slept here very comfortably so you can definitely add more and be safe. We had our wedding here and the reception inside had more than enough room for dancing, eating, mingling. We want to return for family and friend reunions. So beautiful This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company. Please note that the home name has changed.

We stayed in Gypsy Tide for a week for our son`s wedding in Charleston! I can`t tell you how pleased we were, from the minute we starting planning our vacation Tom and others had been nothing but responsive, pleasant, and helpful! The house was beautifully decorated, well stocked with kitchen items, towels, parking, beach toys... and the setting was amazing. The oceanside screened in porch was wonderful too. We will definitely work with Follytime again and hope to be back at Gypsy Tide soon. We can`t thank you enough!
