The massive coastline and friendly atmosphere of Folly Beach is an ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Often referred to as the ‘Edge of America’, Folly Beach is best known for its extensive beaches, lengthy history and amazing seafood. Originally detached from the mainland, Folly Beach was a haven for pirates and its once deserted beaches were filled with shipwrecks. Due to its proximity to Fort Sumter, Folly Beach was used by Union soldiers during the American Civil War. By 1930 and with the construction of Atlantic Pavilion, Folly Beach had started to become a busy holiday destination. Nowadays, it is a popular weekend beach destination for many. While in Folly Beach, you can try something different and opt for a stay in a holiday rental, instead of one of the numerous hotels.
This is an oceanfront, top floor condo, which offers a panoramic view of the beach. The property comes with three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms, one of which offers a Jacuzzi for relaxing and unwinding after a long day of sightseeing. The condo’s balcony is a mere two steps from the beach and provides an unparalleled view of the sea. There is a glass enclosed balcony and another open-air balcony, both of which have excellent views of the beach.
