About

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. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please keep A/C temperature above 70F for optimal comfort. It is recommended to set it at 72F. Remember to keep doors and windows closed to maintain a cool home and keep bugs out. Fridges may take 24 hrs to cool when loaded after cleaning. 
Please be aware & mindful that there are alligators throughout the fresh water areas of Charleston, SC. You should assume that there is an alligator in every pond, lake & fresh water river.  Please do not allow small children or dogs near the edge of these fresh water areas.  DO NOT feed or taunt the alligators!
Please note that there is construction ongoing throughout the Charleston area and on all of the Islands. Many of our managed homes are in areas where there has been intense real estate activity and there are almost continous home improvements going on in addition to the normal off season routine maintenance.

We don't get notice of construction projects but please let us know if you encounter excessive noise.  Contractors are required to obey all noise limits and working hour restrictions.   
BANNERS, BALLOONS & PARTY SIGNS
Please do not afix balloons, banners or other 'party' signs to walls, cabinets or other structures. These will remove the paint. You will be charged for the cost to repair each item damaged. The cost to repaint a wall can easily be $250 alone. 
Beds will be freshly made, towels* laid out and a starter set of amenities like soap, lotion and shampoo are provided too. We also provide a starter set of kitchen paper and toilet paper to get you going as well as some laundry and dish detergent. If you need additional supplies you will need to provide those beyond the starter set. 

*We provide 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 wash cloth per person. Additional towels are available to rent at an addional charge. Requests must be made more than 24 hours prior to check in. 
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time. They can be pretty big, can fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. Rest assured all of our homes are professionally treated at least quarterly for pests. Any bugs that manage to get inside will die quickly.

According to Eric Benson, Ph.D. professor and extension entomologist at Clemson University “It has nothing to do with cleanliness or the economic conditions of the area,” said Benson. “They could be around the nicest home or the nicest hotel or resort.”

If you leave the doors or windows open, especially at night, you will likely see a few. This is perfectly normal. If you see 20 or 30 all in one place then please let us know. This might mean we have a nest somewhere in the home and we'll need to get pest control out to take care of it. This is extremely rare!  

Please don't worry about bugs, enjoy your vacation. You'll likely not see any while you are here, we just include this note so you understand it's not unusual to see some and it doesn't mean the home isn't well looked after! 


 
Most community pools remain open from March through October but this does vary by resort and is subject to maintenance schedules and emergency closures for health reasons. Please contact us to see if the pool will be closed during your fall or winter vacation.

We do not manage any of these community pools and are not responsible for management of them. We do not provide refunds for pool closure.

Our vacation homes are located in quiet residential areas. We generally have great relations with our local neighbors and we want to keep it that way. Please pay particular attention to:

- No loud noises after 9pm. (Includes no Hot Tub use after 9pm)
- Only park in the designated areas (not on the landscaping) 
- Do not roll out trash to the street, trash service will do this
- Do not hang beach towels over railings or leave beach gear outside

- On Kiawah island - Bikes must be in the garage (if there is access) or in a designated bike rack or out of sight of the road after dark. 

- Beach Front Homes - TURTLE SEASON No lights visible from beach (May 1 to Oct 31)

The Cities will issue a ticket and a fine for these items. 

 
No barbeque grills of any kind are permitted on balconies or in the unit. No open flames (i.e., candle burning) are permitted on balconies or in the unit. Do not dismantle smoke detectors as they are there for your protection. Use the overhead stove fan when cooking to avoid accidental, activation of smoke detector alarm.

LOCAL ORDINANCES

All County & City ordinances during rental occupancy must be followed. Non compliance of any of these ordinances will result in eviction of the property and forfeiture of all monies paid.   Tenant agrees to pay any fines levied by the County, City and Town and further Tenant will be liable to Homeowner and Agent for any and all lost rental revenues from the suspension or removal of their business licenses as a result of Tenants actions.

We do not recommend having mail sent to the address. If you must mail an item please make sure you specify that it must be delivered to the door and do so for a day that you will be at the home to recieve the mail.  We do not have access to locked mailboxes. 
We utilize third party professional service companies for the provision of Handyman Services, A/C & Heating Repair, Pest Control, Wildlife Removal, Plumbing Repair, Pool & Hot Tub Service, Electrical Repairs, Appliance Repairs and any other repair or maintenance of a technical or specialist nature.  We only used trusted, reputable professional service companies to assess, repair and replace equipment that needs attention. We will work with them to get the first available service appointment. Given the Post COVID economy it can be a challenge to get fast, timely service. Rest assured we will do our best to resolve issues quickly and our service providers understand our need for fast, reliable care.  Due to the global supply crunch, parts and even replacement units may not be available which can be frustrating. Please be patient as we work hard behind the scenes to make small miracles happen on a daily basis!

No one may perform any maintenance work on the home without our specific permission in writing.  
Our rates automatically adjust for the season as well as to reflect supply and demand. To access the best rate please begin the booking process on the iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches site (don't worry you won't be charged until you're ready to book). This will present you our current up-to-date rates!
The person who makes the reservation must be over 25 years old and must be present during the entire stay.   A mobile number must be provided where we can contact the primary renter at all times. If code enforcement call us with any issues we need to be able to contact someone onsite with 60 minutes to address any issus or you may be liable for any fines imposed by the local government. 

We recommend adding a second mobile number to your account to make sure we can contact someone at all times. This second number may also be used to receive door codes in the event the first phone dies or is left in the unit. (It happens a lot and we are unable to provide codes to spouses or family members for security reasons). 
We want everyone to have a great stay but we understand that things may break or some items may get overlooked. We'll do our best to get them fixed (please review the “Maintenance House Rule” on what this means). 
 
We do ask that all guests TAKE TIME TO BE KIND.  Common courtesy goes a long way.  Sadly since the pandemic we have all witnessed an increase in aggressive or unacceptable behavior.  Our team has taken a lot of abuse and experienced some very unkind guests.   

Misunderstandings are one of the leading causes of guest complaints. Please make sure you read everything we send to you.  This include the entire rental listing, all of our house rules, all photos, all emails & texts and all the help articles in your iTrip account. This helps avoid misunderstandings in the first place. 
 
For our own safety and security we have a zero tolerance rule with guests who are rude, abusive, discourteous or argumentative.  We do not engage with those guests any more beyond asking them to read our TAKE TIME TO BE KIND policy.  
 

 
Our vacation homes are on a septic tank or a city sewer system. It is important that guests do not put large amounts of toilet paper or any other other products down the toilet.  We flush all toilets prior to a guests arrival to verify that they are working correctly. Any blockages that occur during the guests stay at the home are the responsibility of the guest to unblock. If a plumber is required to unblock a toilet then the guest will be charged $250 for that visit. 
Charleston and suburbs are charming places to stay.  It should be noted that Charleston is also a working Port City and has a large manufacturing base (including Boeing, Mercedes and other major international manufacturers). Since we are both very flat and surrounded my water sound at night can travel very far.  

Train noise, airplane noise, road noise and manufacturing noise may be audible during your stay depending on weather conditions and wind direction.

We do not offer refunds, credits or discounts in the event that you find these to be problem. Light sleepers should bring ear plugs or a white noise machine. Many phones can download a white noise machine too. They work well. 

We're available by text from 8am to 8pm. For urgent issues after 8pm please call this number for our After Hours service. They will alert us for urgent issues or leave a note for us for non-urgent issues. In emergency dial 911.  

Urgent issues include: Being locked out, water leaks. 

Emergency Issues include: Gas leaks. Fire. Life Safety Issues. Call 911. 

Issues that will typically be dealt with the next day include Air Conditioning issues.

Power Outages: These can be frequent on the islands. Power company's are quick to resolve. If it doesn't not appear to be a neighborhood wide outage please contact us. 

Buyer beware! We do not put any of our homes on Craig s list. If you see one of our homes on there it is a scam. Please NEVER send money to anyone posing as a host on Craig s list. If they send you a contract and they don't disclose their name it's an easy way to know that they are scammers. 

Please call or text us if you are not sure that the listing is genuine. 
We don't accept change requests for reservations within 60 days of the check in date. You should cancel and rebook your new dates.

If the vacation home has the option of a heated pool please note that heating of the pool is available for an additional fee and heating is limited to 85F. All of our heated pools use propane which has to be delivered. Sometimes, due to the weather, the gas may run out before the next scheduled delivery. We will contact the gas company to schedule a refill as soon as we can but gas delivery can be difficult to arrange in Charleston. 

We don't recommend heating the pool when the ambient temperature is below 50F. This will drain the gas quickly. We do not provide refunds if the gas is used. If the pool heater isn't used and the gas is not used we can provide a pro rata refund based on days used. 

POOL & PATIO

If the premises include a private or community pool (including hot tubs), then the Tenant hereby acknowledges that the premises they have reserved include a community pool and the undersigned agrees and acknowledges that the community pool and patio/deck can be dangerous areas, that the deck/patio can be slippery when wet, and that injury may occur to anyone who is not careful.

POOL & HOT TUB SERVICE


 All private pools and hot tubs are serviced weekly and this is NOT always on the day of a guest arrival as check ins occur throughout the week.  

Our team will skim the surface of the pool before your arrival but we cannot vacuum out the pool or hot tub as only the pool service company can do that.  The pool service company will take care of this every week and they also balance the chemicals. We have a lot of storms which may change the appearance of the pool water in our pools - this is normal. The pool service company will be out to take care of it as soon as they can. 

If you are using the hot tub, please rinse off all sunscreen and sand before entering the water. If the hot tub is left in a dirty condition your credit card will be charged $250 charge to have it pumped out, cleaned and rebalanced.  

Must be over 25 years of age to rent any property. 

Person making the reservation must be present during the stay. DO NOT BOOK FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

Reviews

Comfortable Clean Charleston Charm!
5/5 stars
We lived in Charleston for many years before work moved us to the upstate. It was so wonderful to stay at Mermaid’s Folly and feel like we were right back home! The home is beautiful and well appointed with anything to make your stay comfortable! We loved that it’s tucked back off the main roadway but still close enough to take a short walk to the beach or the stores and restaurants. Everything is well maintained and clean. I can be a bit OCD with cleanliness but I didn’t have to worry here at all! We so appreciated the environment they’ve created here! Comfortable, clean, inviting, laid-back and beyond charming! Thank yall for a fantastic rental!

We spent a lovely long weekend at Mermaid’s Folly. There were 6 of us - and plenty of room. The kitchen was fully stocked with glasses, dishes, pots and pans. The house was very clean. We will definitely return to this house if we find ourselves in Folly Beach again! Great hosts!

Mermaids Folly was the perfect house for our group of 7. The back room with the windows was so lovely and relaxing. Everything was clean and the house had everything we needed. It was also a perfect location - easy walk to downtown Folly and the beach. We rented golf carts to drive around Folly too - highly recommend!

Tidy and quiet home

This was a lovely space for 4 adult travelers to relax and enjoy the Folly Beach lifestyle. The home was situated a short walk from the beach and town, and was tidy, quiet with a fully stocked kitchen. Checking in was easy and the house was exactly as advertised.

Great stay
5/5 stars
We had a really good stay at Mermaid's Folly. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen had a good selection of spices, including salt, pepper, sugar, and coffee paraphernalia, even a coffee grinder, which was great for us. The beds were super comfortable. And the neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. We would stay there again.

mermaids Folly is a great place to stay. It is located on a quiet back street - amid beautiful palms and live oaks draped in spanish moss. there are no houses behind so there is loads of privacy. It is a s easy walk to the beach on tree covered quiet streets and walk way. when you sit in the back sunroom it feels as if you in a quiet treehouse The home is gorgeously decorated and has high-quality appliances linens and dishes .

Beautiful home!!
5/5 stars
I stayed at Mermaids Folly this past weekend with 6 of my friends for my bachelorette weekend! The house was everything we could have wanted! Quiet area, about a half mile to the downtown area (bars, restaurants, etc.) so perfect location! We ended up renting a golf cart since some of our other party was staying closer to the water, which was definitely worth it. We enjoyed sitting in the living room at night which had plenty of cozy sofas and chairs, then would hang out of the back porch in the morning for coffee, we had an amazing time, we will go back!

Great house, great location! The house was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and - best of all - an easy short walk to the beach and center of town. We had plenty of room to spread out and enjoyed the multiple decks. This was our first time in Folly Beach and we would absolutely stay here again!

Mermaid’s Folly
4/5 stars
Overall, a pretty nice house that had everything we needed. It is about 3 blocks to the beach, an easy walk for adults but a little long for young children. The only complaint is the mattress in the master bedroom .. I slept in a hole and it hurt my back… it needs to be replaced. Other than that, everything was fine!

Folly Beach
5/5 stars
We loved everything about this house. It was the perfect size for our family (6 adults) as we each had our own room, but wasn’t so big that we had to go up and down stairs or feel overwhelmed with space. The outdoor porches/decks were amazing and the sunroom was our favorite area. We used the gas grill to cookout and cooked all but one meal at home. The kitchen was well supplied. Walking to the beach and downtown was easy in this quiet neighborhood.

Most Relaxing Beach House!
5/5 stars
Brought a large extended family group into SC for a family wedding and we wanted a place that would relax everyone and would be able to fit everyone comfortably…and Mermaid’s Folly delivered! The house was beautiful, spotless, located on a quiet street and was well within walking distance to both the beachfront/fun local eateries. Everyone in our larger group couldn’t stop talking about how much they loved the trip and how they’d love to come back again!

Fantastic 1st time at Folly Beach
5/5 stars
I wanted to take my mom, who was diagnosed a year ago with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, on a nice vacation to charleston. I searched everywhere in the area and decided to book here at folly beach. Wow were we impressed. We're so used to the busy beaches up north, that this was a nice change of pace. The house was beautiful and well layed out. The beds were comfortable and everyone fell in love with the sun room. The beach, retail stores, bars/restaurants were well within walking distance. I definitely want to return with my family and children in the future. Highly recommend

5/5 stars
A very special place. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 young one’s. We loved how the backyard would light up from below to show the beautiful trees and plants at night. It felt like a tree house. Squirrels would play in the trees and run about during the day. The enclosed windowed porch was warm enough to sit on in Dec and have a cocktail at night while the kiddo’s were sleeping. Loved the neighborhood. It’s more year round residential. The homes were very nice and so were the neighbors! We’d definitely come back and stay here. Very walkable with nice restaurants all within walking distance. Safe too. Enjoy yourselves like we did. Thank you Sarah and Steven!!

5/5 stars
This is a great house in the perfect location on Folly! I did a lot of research and this house was an excellent price and value. In terms of location, you are both a short walk from the beach and to the town area where there are restaurants, bars and Bert's grocery store. It's so nice to be able to walk to all these things and not worry about driving/parking/etc. And the house is just far enough away from these things that it is very quiet at night - super peaceful. I wish we'd had more time to take advantage of all the different areas to hang out - an enclosed porch, an outdoor grilling area, and a front outdoor seating area with adirondack chairs. We were there 4 nights for a reunion of 4 friends, and the 4 bedrooms were perfect. If you're going to Folly, I recommend Mermaid's Folly as a great place to stay!

Amazing location and perfect, beachy home for hanging out!
5/5 stars
Our family of 4 (2 adults, toddler, infant) stayed here with a family of 3 (2 adults and toddler) and were very comfortable with the amount of space. The house is very well furnished with a beachy theme; the beds were comfortable, and we especially loved the sunroom (pictured). It was a great home base for our Folly Beach/Charleston adventures. The location was fantastic- we could be at the beach or on the main street within just a few minutes. Unless we were going into Charleston, we never had to take the car out- everything was walkable! There are nice touches like towels and a wagon provided, as well as a really nice selection of books and dvds for quieter days. We found the hosts to be responsive and accommodating. We loved our stay here so much that we extended it a bit! We would definitely return and highly recommend.

Beautiful Stay
5/5 stars
We loved this house. It is beautifully decorated. Very roomy for our party of 4. We loved the sun room off the back & the hard flooring throughout. The kids loved the board games and we used the provided beach towels, wagon, chairs & boogie boards about every day. There were also shovels & sand buckets. We thankfully brought our own beach umbrella & cooler as it was unseasonably hot while we were there. The walk to the beach was nice and easy. We drove to the pier & parked & walked up to shop or eat on Center Street. We spent a beach day at the county park & got a hot lunch from their snack counter, ate at Pier 101, Blu, Crab Shack & Bowens Island. We also picked up sandwiches at Bert's. We did a private charter with Islandhoppercharters.com. Capt Randy was amazing! Call to book & save the online booking fee. We visited the Magnolia Plantation & gardens (check Groupon). It was beautiful! We saw gators throughout. There is a little zoo area with white tail deer roaming with you, among another animals. We were sorry we ran out of time to enjoy the historical sites of Charleston. We will be back.

We rented this home for a quiet weekend getaway at the beach. As the description states, the home is just a short walk from the beach. We were pleased that the beach was not too crowded and that other beach goers were respectful about social distancing on the beach. The home was clean and tidy. The owners provided hotel-sized conditioner, shampoo, and lotion. The kitchen had all of the supplies we needed to cook all of our meals at the home. It was a wonderful stay and exactly the short vacation we needed.

Great Folly Beach Spot!
5/5 stars
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.
- Josh

Thanks Josh! We're delighted Mermaid's Folly worked well for the whole family! Come back soon! Steven

Great stay!
5/5 stars
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.
- Elizabeth

Thank you Elizabeth! We agree those balconies and the sun room are hard to beat and so much room for everyone to spread out! Steven

Awesome beach house!
5/5 stars
What a perfect place to stay and celebrate with lifelong friends. Comfortably sleeps 7, and the house oozes quaint charm. An easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. I don’t have one bad thing to say about it, it’s great!
- Andrea

Wow Andrea. We’re glad Mermaids was such a hit! Don’t tell everyone or they’ll all want to come! : ).

“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! ”
- Sierra

We're so happy you enjoyed Mermaid's Folly. It is a little slice of Folly Beach heaven! We love the back yard, so quiet and peaceful but so close to everything! Steven

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!

Comfortable, clean, cute decor!
4/5 stars
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!
- Jamie

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
