Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 25, 2014
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 just 20 minutes from historic downtown Charleston. Beach access is only two doors down the street - a few minutes from door to sand. 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 down 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 just 20 minutes from historic downtown Charleston and 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 groundfloor is a 2 bedroom / 1 bath apartment that was added more recently. They rent together 'whole house' or separately. There is a private outdoor shower also, for use by both units. Check our web site, www.kudzurose com, for availabilty calendars for each floor separately and for the whole house. The calendar here on vacationrentals.com 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, 1 queen bed, 1 full bed and three single beds, 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 and new countertops, 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 socailizing, reading or napping. The comon 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.

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?

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

  • 4 of 5
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.

A wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with a group for the weekend and would return in a heartbeat. There were five of us total (and two dogs), yet we didn't feel cramped. We stayed on the top floor. The house was clean, all dishes and furnishings were provided for. Beds were comfortable, sheets were crisp. The grounds were well-kept and neatly mowed. I have to say that my favorite thing about the outside(aside from the waterhose, which we used a good deal to wash off the sand- a lifesaver!) was the screened-in porch. Though there is a house between this one and the sea, we still had a nice view of the ocean and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside and listening to the waves.


We rented bicycles which we used when we wanted to eat downtown, which would take us between five and ten minutes to reach.

And of course, the beach was a 30-second walk away.

Owner's Response: This review makes me long for some time on the porch right now! I enjoy gardening at the house and love to share the tropical plantings with guests from more northern climates.

Charming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
I spent a glorious month at this wonderful house during the late winter. Immediately upon arrival, I felt at home. The care given in decorating is obvious and you feel like you are a personal guest of the owners. During my stay, several family members and friends came down to visit. Every single person said they wanted a place just like this for their own. We all joked that when we won the lottery we would build one. The location is fantastic, close enough to get to the main shopping areas quickly but far enough to away from the traffic. There are fantastic restaurants nearby and a well stocked kitchen, both upstairs and down. Even when my plans changed without notice, Susan never hesitated to accommodate me. This house is perfect if you want to get away with friends or by yourself. I found myself sitting on the porch - even in the cold - with my Kindle and a cup of coffee. At night, the sound of the waves lulled me right to sleep. Not only am I recommending this house to my friends but I plan on staying there again.

This is my 4th trip to Rosie's Cottage and I have never been more pleased! A few little upgrades like fast wireless and new decorations only add to the charm. But, the reason I keep coming back is the charm of the cottage. From the porch I can see the ocean and enjoy the breeze. It's quick drive or nice walk downtown to some of my favorite local joints (like Taco Boy). This is a great rental, the beds are all comfortable (I've slept in almost all of them), the house is clean, quaint and feels like home. I love this house and the owners are wonderful to work with.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Folly Beach

Folly Beach is beautifull. It is almost entirely single family homes. There are no high rises. It is beachy and easy and so very close to all that is historic Charleston, SC. For time off the beach,shop on Center Street or head into Charelston. See the Yorktown aircraft carrier, King Street, the Battery and Fort Sumter to name a few of Charleston's unique attractions.
