About this Property

- Private vacation home
- Approximately 650 square feet
This bungalow is attractively located for families and couples who want to come and go from the beach and downtown without driving, parking or walking very far. The beach access, directly across the street, is just 40 feet from the front steps. Eateries and shopping area are just 3 blocks away. We are located at the corner of West Ashley Ave. and 4th Ave. - look for our aqua bungalow with widows walk on the top. 324 W. Ashley Ave., Folly Beach, SC
One of Folly's original cottages, the Appreciate Shack has been refreshed inside with creature amenities. But the huge front deck is still our guests' favorite - as it puts you right in the Folly action with great vistas. You can see and hear the ocean from nearly every room in the home - or listen to the ocean and feel the breezes. There's even a roof top deck over the porch if you want a expansive view of the island.
This rental offers guests a combination of comfort and nostalgia that's getting harder to come by...we have aimed to preserve the same flavor we appreciated as youngsters coming to the beach, before the era of condos and 'McMansions.' This property has 2 bedrooms and a sizable living area, both areas equipped with 42' flat screen TVs. Our bungalow has roughly 650 square feet.
The living area and kitchen are open, divided by a bar/table/counter which is an old hatch door from a WWII Liberty Ship - refinished of course.
Folly Beach is a six mile long barrier island, and the closest beach to historic Charleston, South Carolina, 15 mins. on the Connector.
We welcome kids of all ages and dogs. Our property is located on a corner lot. The backyard has a canopy of live oaks and is completely fenced. This home is not nearly as elevated as the newer ones; so there's only 10 steps from the back door to the yard. All these features make pet care and kid care a lot easier. And don't worry about parking - we have 4 off street spaces at the back of the lot; and another in the front.

Tricks and tips to get the very best Charleston area vacation rental experience:
How to get the best rental value:
- The earlier you can reserve a home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation homes are reserved early. Booking your vacation rental six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental home.
- Summer months are high season in Charleston. To find the largest vacation home within your budget, we highly recommend reserving in the Fall or Spring. You'll enjoy lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August.
- Hosts sometimes offer special rates for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your host or property manager to see if special offers are available for your family.
- Property managers typically offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
- Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply Charleston area area visitors guide magazines which will include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area visitors guide and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.
Use filters to search efficiently:
- Begin by choosing your the best vacation week and a spending budget.
- Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group needs. Charming Pet Friendly Oceanview Bungalow - Prime Location - Steps to beach has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
- Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts is normally accessible online. If not, call the property owner before you reserve the home. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches.
- Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the host about pets before booking.
- Visiting for a single event? If so, use a map search to find nearby properties.
- Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. .
Tips for your stay:
- We recommend storing the host's contact information in your smartphone.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, stereo or appliance. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call prevents a lot of problems.
- Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental while you are away, just like you would back home.
- To make certain no damages are linked to your visit, make a record of any problem areas upon your arrival. Speak to the rental manager immediately to record any damages. If there is a dispute, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful vacationers disrupting your peaceful neighborhood. Practice the golden rule for common sense. Happy residents may even recommend great local food and attractions you would've never otherwise known!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can often help. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
- Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected all personal belongings. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
- Did you have a wonderful stay? Most rental home management companies make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was great, they would love to hear about it. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
