$210 - $363.14 / night   in Folly Beach  
4 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 8

Love the beach but want to get away from it all, too? You will love Mermaid's Folly, which is a short walk from the beach and provides a quiet & peaceful retreat within the sun-drenched, bird-filled woods. Located on a low traffic street in a tree-filled residential neighborhood, this house provides its guests close proximity to the beach and Folly Beach's restaurant row on Center Street without all the congestion and noise that you'll find on the busier streets of the island. Guests of Mermaid's Folly can take a leisurely walk to the best public access point (fully equipped with its own bath house & rest room!) on Folly Beach and have their toes in the sand within 7 minutes of leaving the front door, using the home's beach wagon (loaded up with the beach chairs & other assorted beach gear that we provide for our guests). At the end of the day, you can return home to enjoy sundowner cocktails on one of the home's three elevated porches that overlook the marsh or drive to downtown Charleston to enjoy the fabulous foodie & cultural delights of what readers of Southern Living magazine voted as the "Best City in the South" of 2017.

5.0/5 stars
The house was immaculate and well equipped for 6 adults over a long weekend. Felt like we were staying in someone's home, not a rental, which made relaxing very easy. Far enough away from the main drag and all the noise, but close enough to walk to and from the beach/shops.

Thanks Sean! Glad Mermaid's worked so well for you all. It is actually someone's home for a lot of the year and they work hard to make everyone feel welcome too!!

This was a great location for the beach as well as traveling to Charleston. There was plenty of room for six adults -- inside and out. I would certainly recommend this location based on my experience.

Mermaid’s Folly was the perfect home for our family trip of 4 adults. The home was very comfortable and welcoming. There was room for us to spread out and have our own space as well as all be together. We enjoyed the short walk to breakfast and the beach. We enjoyed our mornings and evenings at Folly Beach and our days in Charleston, the best of both!

We really enjoyed our stay at Mermaids Folly, it’s a very nice spot a couple blocks from the beach. Walking to the beach and walking to downtown Folly were both very reasonable walks; maybe 10 minutes but no more. We will definitely save this property in our favorites for future trips.

This house was so adorable for our girls weekend together. It is in the perfect location and the walk to the beach couldn't be easier! The rooms were perfect to house everyone, and the back sun room is the perfect hang out spot (along with the outdoor balconies!) We really loved this house and would stay here again without hesitation. The availability of beach towels and beach chairs was an added plus! Thanks so much for the great hospitality.

“We were greeted with a note and little basket of items which was so kind! Wifi password, directions to the beach, all such information was readily available and was very helpful! The home itself is even more beautiful than the photos, and the back deck was so nice to relax on. The home is perfectly close to the beach, and we fully enjoyed every second we were in the house! ”

Mermaids Folly was a beautiful house. It has everything you could need even chairs for the beach. The beach was only about 7 minutes away walking. I usually have a hard time sleeping when I'm on vacation but not here, the beds were so comfortable. I would definitely recommend this rental to everyone. Everything was great!

We stayed at Mermaid's Folly for our "familymoon" after my sister's wedding *and* to view the 2017 eclipse! Upon arrival, we were all very impressed at how clean the space was, as well as how cute the decor and furniture were. The home was very spacious and comfortably fit 6 adults, 2 children, and 1 toddler. There was a welcome note and bottle of wine, which was really nice! There is also a guide book in the home, and the owners were very responsive through text when I had questions. The walk to the beach is really nice and not all on pavement, the neighborhood is a super nice neighborhood that is very quiet and peaceful. The beach is absolutely beautiful and even during the eclipse, the beach was not packed with people. Great places to eat and shop within walking distance. The only reason My review is 4 stars instead of 5 is because the porches could use a little bit of TLC- they definitely aren't porches you can enjoy barefoot. Also, We couldn't use the beach cart because it was so rusty that the wheels fell off. However, I notified the owners about this and they were super nice and let us know a new one was on order. Overall, we had a really comfortable and fun stay and I would recommend this home to a friend!

Thank you Jamie. We are happy to hear your family had a wonderful eclipse experience and enjoyed their stay at Mermaid's Folly. The neighborhood is so nice for a family vacation yet so close to the beach and Center St. We love it too! We're sorry about the beach cart, the new cart did arrive yesterday but thank you very much for letting us know the old one reached its 'end of life'! We appreciate the recommendation! We'll take a look at those porch floors too but with our 'humid, pine tree wrapped, salt air' location the outside wood is always going to be a bit rough. Steven
