About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Enjoy a great family getaway only steps from the ocean at Folly Beach! Early risers will enjoy watching the sun as it rises over the ocean. Watch the surfers from the front porch while you relax in the swing or rocking chairs.

In addition to 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, we have Bedroom #4 which is actually a very large sunroom that includes 2 twin beds, futon, and extra living space--a perfect place for kids! Bedroom 1 has a queen bed; bedroom 2 has a queen bed and a pack and play; and bedroom 3 has a king bed.

Two large bathrooms are off the hallway and offer convenient access from all bedrooms. One bathroom has a tub/shower and the largest bathroom has a walk-in shower.

In the spacious family room, there are 2 additional daybeds. The kitchen has a dining bar that seats 5. The dining room table seats 6.

When you're ready for time in the shade, enjoy the cool breeze while swinging in one of the two swings on the deck under the house. There is also a 3rd bathroom/shower room on this level. In the evening, you can experience the wonderful sunsets over the Folly River and view the historic Morris Island Lighthouse from the deck. There is a gas grill on the upstairs deck, and we keep an extra propane tank for the grill in the shower room.

About Gracie McLaughlin

My 2 sisters and I are the original owners of our family beach house. We take pride in making sure our renters want to return to Heavenly Days yearly! Our children and grandchildren have 'grown up' coming to Folly, and it is their 'home away from home.'

Gracie McLaughlin purchased this house in 1984

Why Gracie McLaughlin chose Folly Beach

In the early 1950's, our uncle purchased property at Folly Beach. He and his wife named their first cottage--a converted trailer--Heavenly Days. After many years they built a house. It was destroyed during Hurricane Hugo, and at the age of 80, he built another Heavenly Days. Our mother (his sister-in-law) purchase a lot and built our existing house. After our uncle and aunt sold their house, we were able to take the name 'Heavenly Days' for our house. And, hopefully, we will have Heavenly Days to share with renters for many years to come!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gracie,

I'm sorry I've taken so long to let you know... the survey that VRBO (or whoever) sent had some kind of error so I could not respond but I wanted to let you know that our girls trip was the BEST! The sleeping arrangements worked great, we loved the big porch and the swing and all the rockers! We had great fun in town every night eating (and eating ice cream!) We had a blast on the beach, being chased to the rocks by the tide! And the surfers!! We hope to make this a yearly trip!

Thanks so much!!

Great home away from home, little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at heavenly days, and we loved it so much! We loved that there was a pack and play for our little baby. The house is perfectly furnished for everything you could ever need! We love the porch, we spent so much time out there laughing and enjoying the ocean views! The open concept living room and kitchen was perfect while preparing meals and allowed for togetherness without feeling crowded. The television had cable, which was awesome for my grandma since she watches so much TV. You are steps away from the ocean! Watching the surfers do their thing in the morning was so cool! My dad said he saw dolphins. You are short drive away from Folly Beach proper. The part of the beach where the house is located feel so private and serene! The barbecue was utilized quite a bit! All of the beds were super comfy! We can't wait to come back next year! So much fun! Thank you Gracie!

We had a great stay at this house. The layout is very open with plenty of kitchen space. The view is amazing and right across the street from the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Andrea! We’re delighted that you enjoyed our open floor plan with plenty of room to spread out. Our favorite place, also, is the front porch where we love watching the dolphins! Hopefully, you and your friends will return to Heavenly Days! Gracie

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Alisa for your review! We take pride in making sure our guests are satisfied customers. You were there during a very unusual cold snap so I’m sure you’ll be ready for warmer weather! But, evidently, your family made the best of it. And, thank you, for letting the water drip to avoid frozen pipes!

Great family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

For families that like to cook, take walks on the beach, watch all the surfers in the morning, and have teenagers who like to have their own space, this is a great home to rent. We enjoyed it!

Since Folly Beach is located only 9 miles from historic Charleston,

SC, you will have the advantage of enjoying both the beach and the

city. James Island County Park with Splash Water Island is located

only 5 miles from Folly. The Southeastern Wildlife Expo is in

February. Shelling, biking, crabbing, fishing, swimming and surfing

will keep you busy when you're not basking in the sun.
