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.

Hi Carol. We're glad you had a great time at Mermaid's Folly and got some great sleep! Steven
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
