Property Details

Updated: May 27, 2015
House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 14 Sleeps

Abundant charm and fully air conditioned comfort in authentic Low Country style, just across the street from the beach and 20 minutes from historic downtown Charleston. Beach access is only two doors down the street - a few minutes from door to sand. We have wi-fi. WWe have an outdoor shower. We do not require a full week's rental and we do not charge extra for pets. This classic beach house was built in 1924 and has high ceilings and bead board walls. The beach where we are is the loveliest part of Folly Island. We are on a deep lot full of Palm trees and Water Oaks. We are 8 blocks (an easy one mile walk) to Center Street on Folly with shops, restaurants and fun for all; just steps to the Folly Fishing Pier. This property is a duplex - the upstairs unit is the original house built in 1924, with 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths; and the ground floor is a 2 bedroom / 1 bath apartment that was added more recently. They rent together 'whole house' or separately. Check our web site, www.kudzurose com, for availability calendars for each floor separately and for the whole house. The calendar here on only shows when the whole house is booked and not when only one of the floors (up or down) has been booked. Our site also has separate rates for each floor and for the whole house.

Rosie's Ocean View is the original house, upstairs, with 4 big bedrooms and 2 full baths. It has 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, 1 full bed and 1 single bed, plus a queen sleeper sofa. Wi-fi, DVD player and cable TV are included. The HVAC unit is new and keeps the place cool in summer and warm in winter. The kitchen is fully equipped, has a new dishwasher, 2 coffee makers and a breakfast bar. We have a Belgian waffle maker and a large electric griddle that make for yummy breakfasts and a blender that makes for yummy cocktails. The dining area comfortably seats 9 people.

The screened in front porch runs the entire front of the house and has beautiful ocean views and ocean breezes. Birds nest in the palm trees next to the house, mixing their songs with the sound of the waves. The porch furniture is great for socializing, reading or napping. The common area furniture is also large and comfortable for reading or TV viewing and the sleeper sofa is from Pottery Barn and has a thick mattress.

Kudzu's Cottage is the ground floor apartment. It has lovely big bright windows and a screened in porch that runs the depth of the house, nestled in a grove of Oak trees and Palms. Styled like a Portugese fishing cottage, the Cottage has all tile floors, clay pots and warm colors. It has 2 bedrooms (both with full size beds, plus an additonal twin bed in one room) and a tiled bath with a dressing area. The kitchen is fully equipped, with full sized refrigerator and oven, plus a microwave, blender and a breakfast bar. The dining room table comfortably seats 6 people. The TV is a wall-mounted flat screen located in the common area with comfortable furniture. Wi-fi, DVD player and cable TV are included. The sofa is huge - big enough for two people to lie down for a good read or an afternoon snooze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Susan,

I wanted to let you know that we loved your beach house! It was a warm and cozy spot with a perfect location to the beach access. We would love to rent it again soon. We are looking at possibly early November and we would like to reserve it again next Labor Day. How soon would you need the deposit for next year?

What a nice, cozy place to enjoy a week at the beach. The house was clean and comfortable and the porch was just the best place to enjoy the cool ocean breezes. Can't wait to get back.

Owner's Response: Our house offers two separate living spaces under one roof for families or other groups that find that useful. We rent them together or separately. The upstairs is the original house. The ground floor cottage was created by enclosing the pilings, tiling the floor, building out the kitchen and bathroom and adding a second screened porch on the side of the house. It has no stairs so is great for those who can't do stairs. We are delighted this guest loved the cottage while others were enjoying the upstairs!

Second visit

  • 5 of 5
We had a very different experience this year, since the family with children was unable to come. It was all adults. We had a great time, more relaxing than last year. The weather was perfect. There were some nice improvements to the house: new decorations, a new coffee maker, a new hot/cold outdoor shower, some landscape and plumbing work. I accidentally left my work computer at home, so I had time to peruse the extensive beach reading library. There were two good, recent, local color works: Folly Beach (a romance) and Folly (a mystery), both quick reads but with a lot of description and history of the island.

A Great Value

We stayed on the first floor for a lovely week to escape the cold winter in the North. Were able to bring our little dog along at no extra cost. Loved the location, bright furnishings, ease of reservation and contact with owner. Foley beach is just steps away and we enjoyed walking along the beach and seeing the other area sights. We were 2 people but plenty of room for up to 5.

Owner's Response: Because the Cottage is only two bedrooms, we can offer it at a reasonable price even with the location being just across the street from the beach. It is a great way to be at the beach in comfort and style without a major financial investment.

Our Home at Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5
For approximately 20 years, I've been coming to Folly Beach every June with a group of friends to enjoy the last weekend of Spoleto. Rosie/Kudzu has become our home away from home. We've tried a few other vacation rentals but always come back to Rosie's because it's charming, comfortable and reasonably priced. Hanging out on the big screened porch with a view of the ocean is so pleasant that sometimes it's hard to tear ourselves away to go into Charleston (20 minute drive) for the excitement of Spoleto. We save more money by preparing most of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The house is well arranged with spaces for gathering and for withdrawing for time alone. The yard is Magical... you have to see it to understand. The owner is great to deal with. One year I forgot my keys in a dresser drawer, and she mailed them back to me within days.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Folly Beach

Folly Beach is beautiful. It is almost entirely single family homes. There are no high rises. It is a wide beach with a laid back, island vibe. Folly Beach is relaxed and sunny and also close to all that is historic Charleston, SC. For time off the beach, shop on Center Street or head into Charleston. See the Yorktown aircraft carrier; shop on King Street; tour historic homes; see the Battery and Fort Sumter. High quality Tanger Outlet shopping is 30 minutes away if you catch a rainy day during your stay.
