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 Charleston Area

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 location and very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Location of this property was perfect for us being oceanfront and near the lighthouse on the quiet end of the island. The home is very comfortable and spacious with decks on the front and side where we were able to grill on the provided gas grill. The grill was in great condition(unlike some we have had in the past) and they also provided an extra propane tank if needed. We highly recommend this property and will definitely rent it again. Also would like to mention that the beds are extremely comfortable

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at Heavenly Days, and as usual everything was wonderful! Gracie is a pleasure to work with and very responsive. The property is always clean, comfortable, and very spacious. The location is perfect with the beach being just a short stroll across the street. We enjoyed the beach, relaxation, and porch sittin'...watching the dolphins and surfers. We are already planning for a visit next year. Thank you Gracie and family for sharing your home!

Much Needed Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

After a year of stress, this was a much needed getaway. We rented the house without any expectations and left with wonderful memories and a refreshed spirit. We invited two other couples, and there was plenty of space for all of us. We had a boil the first night, a huge brunch on the porch facing the beach the following day, and a nice steak dinner the second night. Everything was clean and comfortable. The only complaint was the biting bugs - no see ums or sandflies or sand fleas or whatever you call them - but they had nothing to do with the property. Just bring insect repellent or you will be swarmed. We found some nice shells on the beach and had a great view of the dolphins feeding in the morning right after sunrise. The owners were great to deal with. We would recommend this beach cottage to our friends and family. Thank you for the wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our beach house! It sounds like you and your friends had a great time making memories. I see that y'all had the "no see ums" vacation with you. They can be a nuisance at times, but usually they aren't a problem. It's always a good idea to pack insect repellant!

Thanksgiving at Folly

  • 5 of 5

House is perfect for a family reunion - open kitchen and living area work well for cooking meals and hanging out together. View of beach is super and surfers were entertaining. Beds are comfortable and house has everything you need for cooking, etc. Owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs.....have already recommended to other friends.

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.
