About this Property

  • Sleeps 4
  • 2 Bedrooms
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home


Feel the appeal of coastal living at this calming property, just mins. from Folly Beach and downtown Charleston. Appreciate spectacular water vistas from north facing rooms and the back deck while a grandiose live oak shades the front yard. The home features eclectic decor, with vintage furnishings, wood accents and local art. Multiple seating areas invite you and your family or friends to share conversation, work puzzles, or play games. A gas fireplace in dayroom provides warmth and diversion (if you can get pilot light lit), while multiple intelligent TVs offer multimedia entertainment. Two roomy bedrooms beds with queen beds accommodate up to 4 guests. Full bathroom with shower offers rain shower head, and a thin lip accommodates persons with mobility concerns; shower chair available. An outdoor shower with hot and cold water opens to the sky. High speed WiFi extends a quality and reliable connection throughout the home.

This gracious and well appointed ranch style home is located under a huge live oak and overlooks 14 acre Secessionville Lake. The property is located on secluded Fort Lamar Road just 1/4 mile from the historic Civil War Battlefield Fort Lamar, now a nature preserve. Property is less than five miles from Folly Beach, and six miles from the historic district/downtown.



Watch egrets, herons, hawks, pelicans, bald eagles, and song birds from the back deck (patio sets seat 4-8), or from two sizable swings. Roseate Spoonbills have been spotted newly on James Island; perhaps some will be privileged to see a representative of this tropical species.



Kayak or paddle board on the lake, fish discreetly, tour the Preserve, skate or ride your bicycle on the oak canopied roads after a day at the beach, or light a bonfire and roast marshmallows in the Solo Stove. Kids and adults will savor the enormous tree swing in front yard.



House is in no way ADA compliant, but individuals with limited mobility will find the two step entrance and low threshold inside reasonably painless to navigate. Shower stall is walk-in with 1” lip, which I’m told is altogether accessible, shower chair available. Doors do not accommodate a full size wheelchair.



Ample off street parking is available for 2-4 cars. Driveways would also accommodate a modest to medium sized boat or RV, contingent on other cars.



A completely fenced backyard is available for your modest furry four-legged friends.



Other local attractions—

• Angel Oak on Johns Island is elegant (gift shop with local wares, sweetgrass baskets on site)—check website for hours!
Folly Beach County Park offers a pleasant beach setting with fewer people than centrally. Shelters, bathrooms, changing rooms, and a grand deck overlooking the ocean (at event venue, The Ocean House) are on offer here.
Replacement of The Folly Beach Pier is in progress, with completion expected in 2022. However, bathrooms, gift shop, ice cream bar and impressive waterfront deck remain open.
Vistas of the Folly Beach Lighthouse are accessible via a short walk on a mostly paved road (no cars or family pets). The Lighthouse is illuminated on very special days, see local press for information.


• Folly River Park has some playground equipment, a shelter, and boardwalk over marsh to the river, fishing allowed.



James Island County Park overlooking the marsh is exceptional, with lake and streams for kayaking and paddling, huge dog park with water access, and a network of roads and paths for walking, cycling and skating. Seasonal entertainment is posted on Charleston County Parks and Recreation website. Festival of Lights is open mid November through early January, and is great fun for all with hot cocoa, s’mores, bonfires, and train rides on offer.


Beach wheel chairs with large pneumatic tires are available on request at County Park or through City Hall. A few beach entry paths offer enhanced access, listed on CityofFollyBeach.com website.


Beach umbrellas and chairs are available for rental through the Folly Beach Chair Company (see website).


Surfing is a bore, don’t do it (however, many local surf schools can be found online).


Off shore fishing expeditions abound, accessible online. I strongly recommend Will Adams with Write Off the Rip (on Facebook)


Ashby Gale, Paleontologist in Residence at Charleston Fossil Adventures, will lead you to significant artifacts and fossils (save some for me).


‘Big John’ Ory with Charleston SUP Safaris offers a brisk paddle in the Folly River at the Boat Landing.


PARKING ON FOLLY BEACH is a bear, see City of Folly Beach website for very stringent rules and regulations.

Charleston rental property booking tips:

When to go & When to book:

  • Summer time is high season in the Charleston area area. To get the best value, change your vacation to the Spring or Fall seasons. May, September, and even October offer great temperatures, less crowded beaches, and greatly reduced traffic. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Charleston area vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
  • In the Charleston area area, The earlier you can book, the better your selection will be. The best rental homes are reserved early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner whether your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies typically offer guests an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Many rental management companies supply Charleston area area visitor guide magazines which often include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Charleston area area magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Filter your rental search:

  • Begin by choosing vacation dates and a budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration you need. Waterfront Sanctuary. Minutes from Folly Beach! has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is almost always available online. Otherwise, email the property owner before reserving the property. Remember that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to work out what configuration is suitable for your vacation family.
  • Looking for special amenities? Most websites include search filters with amenity lists. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to find a rental that allows animals. Ask for details on breed, size, and type restrictions. Usually, hosts charge additional pet fees.

Tips for your stay:

  • Get the property manager's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental. We recommend storing the host's information in your smartphone.
  • To ensure that no damages are attributed to your family's visit, inspect for any problem areas when you arrive. Call the rental manager right away to document your findings. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Property managers are available to help! Feel free to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respect the neighborhood. Often, surrounding homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can usually help. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Lock your rental while you're out. Keep your property safe!
  • At departure, complete a final walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets 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 your group have a wonderful stay? Most rental home management companies make it easy for customers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property manager was wonderful, they would love to hear about it. If anything was defective and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
