Are you dreaming of watching a gorgeous sunset from the private deck of a beachside getaway? Do you long to dig your toes into the warm sand and feel the refreshing ocean breeze on your face or get up close and personal with dolphins? When you stay at the Tabby House on beautiful Folly Beach, you can experience all of this and more.
Your Own Private Paradise
The Tabby House is one of the most ideal Folly Beach SC rentals for a luxurious stay with family or friends. This spacious and well-appointed home has six bedrooms and five full baths, so there is plenty of room for everyone in your group to spread out and relax. Multiple decks provide perfect spots to breathe in the fresh ocean air and take in the stunning views.
When you are ready to gather, a cozy den with a minibar on the first floor is a great place to enjoy a refreshing tropical drink in the evening. The second floor is open and airy with calming views of the water from the dining room and living room. The large kitchen has granite countertops and a 6-burner gas stove, perfect for cooking up a delicious seafood feast together.
You won’t want to stay inside for too long, though, as there is so much to explore right outside your door. What makes The Tabby House such a unique Folly Beach rental is its location on a peninsula of deepwater shoreline on the Folly River with a dock and private boat ramp perfect to launch your explorations. Yet it is only a short stroll to the beach, so you can enjoy a walk along the ocean or just stake out a spot on the sand and listen to the waves rolling in.
Get Out and Explore Nature
Folly Beach SC weather is mild, so you can leave your parka and gloves behind and enjoy the warm sunshine and natural beauty of your surroundings. If you want to experience local wildlife up close, you can take a kayak or paddleboard tour to spot playful dolphins, sea turtles, crabs and pelicans. Along the way, you will also learn the fascinating history of the pirates who used to roam these waters.
If you’re an avid surfer, or you’ve always wanted to learn, Folly Beach has the best waves on the South Carolina coast. McKelvin’s Surf Shop can provide everything you need for your surfing adventure from wetsuits to board rentals, and they provide a daily surf report so you know when the conditions are ideal to catch a wave. For beginners, there are a wide variety of instructional options to choose from, such as surf camps for kids, and private or group lessons.
Hit the Town
The town of Folly Beach combines Southern charm and a quirky, bohemian vibe that will make you feel welcome right away. You can explore unique, locally-owned shops to find that one-of-a-kind dress or a knick-knack to take back home. When you need to cool down, stop by The Pineapple Hut for a refreshing Dole Whip or the Dolce Banana Cafe for a creamy frozen yogurt. A visit to Folly Beach wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t sample the fresh local seafood. Grab a seat with an ocean view at Pier 101 Restaurant & Bar to sample unique dishes such as shrimp corn dogs and crab soup. Pair your meal with a local favorite frozen cocktail, the Folly Vice, which combines rum, pina colada, and strawberry daiquiri.
When the sun goes down, Folly Beach comes alive. You can enjoy live music and happy hour specials at Rita’s Seaside Grille, sample the tacos and tequila with a view at Taco Boy’s rooftop bar, or dance the night away at Snapper Jacks.
Make Memories to Last a Lifetime
The stunning setting surrounded by water, yet close to all that the area has to offer, makes The Tabby House one of the best places to rent on Folly Beach South Carolina. A stay here with your loved ones will be remembered long after the last of the sand is shaken out of your beach towels.
