Interested in healthier accommodations?  Wonderful!  We cater to those who can not tolerate typical cleaning chemicals and/or synthetic fragrance and welcome those searching for environmentally safer travel lodging.  In order to maintain status, all guests agree to participate in our chemical and synthetic scent free approach.  

This verbiage applies to Houfy listing 9574.

You'll be dealing with us (the owner's) throughout the entirety of the process and your stay.


Light airy end unit featuring hardwood floors throughout and 12' ceilings in the latest development in the heart of Folly Beach, referred to locally as 'The Edge of America' and well known for it's eclectic mix of inhabitants.  Folly has long been attractive to the artist community and is one of the best surfing areas on the east coast.

An ideal eclectic getaway in a new, lower density, well-designed complex with Caribbean flair. Suitable for 1-2 couples or small families.  Well behaved canine family member is are welcome when the responsible adult to child+dog ratio is 1:1 or better.  Peaceful, perfectly situated location away from the hustle and bustle of front beach party atmosphere, yet truly only a 7 minute stroll to beach and fishing pier, 5 minutes to Center Street restaurants and entertainment.  Historic Charleston SC, with all its charm, is about 15 minutes away via motorcoach.  An electric piano in the living room delights keyboardists and vocalists alike.

We strive to keep our home chemical scent-free by cleaning with natural products and essential oils as well as avoiding chemical pesticides etc.  Chemical scent-free laundry detergent as well as chemical free air freshener and insect repellent is provided.  We ask that guests refrain from using products containing synthetic scent while in residence.  If advice is needed as to where/how to obtain naturally scented personal care items, we're glad to assist.

Spacious... room to be together.. room to be apart.  We've not converted the small study into a dedicated third bedroom as is often the case, electing instead to retain it as a multi-use space instead.  Our guests are generally more mature adults seeking better quality accommodations and a more open and relaxed atmosphere.  Study includes yoga mat etc. as well as a full size drafting table, enabling accommodation of other pursuits.  There is also a sofa should you have an extra family member joining you for a day or two.  This room is truly meant as another space to retreat, design, think and read, not meant to be pressed into full service as sleeping accommodation for a full week.  However, in a pinch, for a couple nights it'll do.

Getting around

We are a 7 minute walk to closest beach access. You'll probably want a vehicle to get to all the places one may want to visit around the Charleston area. Unless of course your basic intent is to just plant yourself on the beach for the duration for some serious rejuvenation...


These directions are for planning purposes only. You may find that construction projects, traffic, weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map results, and you should plan your route accordingly. You must obey all signs or notices regarding your route.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellation policy: Non-Refundable after 24 hr. grace period in which we will speak directly by phone.

One absolutely stellar point about Houfy is that we are able to speak directly prior to any financial involvement. We advise our Guests to purchase trip cancellation insurance to cover any monetary loss due to Guest cancellation or to pay with a credit card that includes trip insurance as one of it's benefits (and be sure read all the fine print).
