Known by the locals as the “Edge of America,” Folly Beach has long been a haven for South Carolina residents and vacationers alike. For those who appreciate rich history, painted sunsets, and waterfront fun, this beachside city just south of Charleston has lots to love. If you’re considering a second shelter near the water, we have two Folly Beach beauties that deserve a look. Which would you choose, the Sandbar Lane Splurge or the Mariner’s Cay Steal?
Splurge: Rooftop Retreat Just A Short Walk To Folly Beach
So our splurge is a one-bedroom, two-full-bathroom elevated home just a short walk to the beach. Close to shops, dining, and the beach, it’s great for a couple looking to have a place close to all the action of town, but with the serenity of those gorgeous water views. It also has proven rental income and is great for weekend getaways. The rooftop deck is great for hosting a crowd, while inside, a spacious 800 square feet is well laid out for ease of use. Hardwood floors and lots of natural light are great but this home also comes fully turnkey! This includes all furnishings and décor. A two-car garage for storing all your gear sweetens the deal.

Steal: Mariner’s Cay Riverfront Condo Overlooking The Marina
For over $100K less than our steal, you could live large in this two-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bathroom condo right on the river! And it’s nearly double the square feet! The unit is located in highly desirable Mariner’s Cay, which is popular among boaters and water enthusiasts. The community amenities make it even more appealing with gated entry, a boat ramp, community dock, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse. The independently owned marina has deep water boat slips for rent or sale too! For an evening stroll, enjoy ample green space right outside your door, marked by lagoons with fountains with proximity to a bridge that will take you to Center Street restaurants and shops. Inside you’ll find granite and stainless steel in the kitchen, beautifully updated finishes throughout, plus high-impact glass windows in the living area, which the property description says, “enhances the feeling of living right on the water.”
