Welcome to Folly Beach, your next favorite coastal getaway. Locals call it the “edge of America,” and while the reason for this nickname remains a mystery, it certainly adds to the abundance of southern charm you’ll find here. From a historic lighthouse to the shops and cafes of bustling Center Street, our Folly Beach vacation rentals have it all.
This cute city in South Carolina rests on the shores of Folly Island, about 12 miles south of beautiful and historic Charleston: Condé Nast Traveler’s No. 1 Best Small City in the World for nine years. Our Folly Beach vacation homes are perfectly located to experience both tranquil beaches and bustling city life.
First and foremost, the reason for your getaway: sparkling ocean and warm sand. Our Folly Beach condos are surrounded by beautiful, pristine beaches. Start your day with an early morning run or dog-walk on the sand, when the crowds are fewer and the sunrises unforgettable. Or you can lounge in your beach chair while the kids build sandcastles and hunt for shells.
Splash in the warm, calm waters, or even try your hand at a surf lesson. Anglers will delight in the Folly Beach Pier, which juts more than 1,000 feet over the water for a prime fishing spot. If you just can’t get enough of the ocean, many local companies are ready to help you explore with fishing charters, boat rentals, eco-tours, and more.
Head to Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve for a view of the historic Morris Island Lighthouse. The beaches here are quieter, and the surrounding marshland is home to endangered Loggerhead turtles. Morris Island is uninhabited and only accessible by boat—but you can book an eco-cruise to the island for a truly memorable experience.
There are so many things to do and see near our Folly Beach vacation rentals. Stroll along Center Street and stop along the locally owned shops and boutiques. Book a session with a local photographer for that perfect family portrait or even a surprise engagement. Explore the dozens of nearby rivers and tributaries via kayak or stand-up paddleboard. And, of course, Charleston is just minutes away, where you’ll find nightlife, high-end dining, and its iconic historic buildings and cobblestone streets.
After a full day of exploring, you can return to our Folly Beach vacation rentals knowing your every need will be taken care of.
