vacation rental description

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, kudzurose com, for availabilty calendars for each unit separately and for the whole house and for more photographs.  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.     

Rosie's Ocean View is the upstairs unit original house 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.

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.

traveler reviews for this folly beach house rental

Second visit

Review submitted: May 31, 2014   Date of arrival: May 18, 2014

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

A Great Value

Review submitted: March 5, 2014   Date of arrival: February 14, 2014

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners 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

Review submitted: October 19, 2013   Date of arrival: June 7, 2013

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.
