Description Description
One of Folly's Best! Laplaya is a clean and comfortable 1 bedroom condo with hardwood floors throughout and a new king size tempurpedic mattress that makes sleeping heavenly in this oceanfront condo. It's located on the first floor of a three story elevated complex that sits directly on the beach. Wake up to enjoy the beautiful beach sunrise from your own balcony or relax on the porch and enjoy the warm sunshine watching the dolphins play while sipping your morning coffee. The night sky is perfect for stargazing while listening to the waves crash onto the shore. You even have full access to a shared washer/dryer during your vacation too! You can park your car in your own private parking space the entire time you are here because everything is within easy walking distance.
A few words from the owner....... My wife and I like to enjoy our condo often. Rest assured you will find our condo clean and comfortable with nice furnishings and a fully equipped kitchen. I strive to have one of the nicest condos in the building. Our goal is to have every guest return for their next vacation.

Beach lovers can enjoy the beach from the front balcony or by crossing our private boardwalk over the sand dunes right onto the sand. Those who enjoy the ocean will love the view directly in front of the condo. During the summer, enjoy the water at one of the only sections of beach with a lifeguard. Those that like to fish can walk less than a block to the Fishing Pier to join other anglers working these very productive spots. Great restaurants, fresh seafood vendors, and a grocery store are all nearby. This unit is a great base to explore the beach and the Historic City of Charleston as well.

*Please be aware that construction of the Folly Beach Pier begins November 2020 and is scheduled to continue until Spring 2023. If you'd like more information please reference the Charleston County Parks site.* LaPlaya allows up to 3 well behaved, house-broken, flea treated dogs with approval. Please include the breed and size of your dogs when you inquire. This rental includes 1 reserved parking space. You will have your own private parking space for your stay.

Beach Front Clean and Comfortable
Condo listing was accurate. It’s on the smaller side, but perfect for what we wanted. Kitchen is sufficiently equipped, bed was verrrry comfortable, shower was amazing, and the view of the ocean from the balcony was very soothing. Only issue I have as a short person was the adirondack chairs don’t allow for unobstructed view. (Must look between railing spindles). They are too low, and difficult for older adults to get up from.

LaPlaya and Folley beach were perfect for us. Very laid back and everything was within walking distance if we didn’t want to drive anywhere. LaPlaya was perfect proximity to the beach. Most residents had dogs and we love them so no problem. If someone is not a dog lover it might not be the perfect spot. Great vacation!

This was our second stay at LA Playa and seventh overall at the same codo unit . You cannot get more beach front unless you sleep on the beach! Units are always clean and enough household supplies are provided. Love, love Folly Beach and I would never stay anywhere else. You can park your car and walk to lots of great places to eat.

Our family of 4 had an amazing time in this unit. It is literally steps from the beach, and an easy relaxing walk to restaurants, shopping, entertainment. We loved walking to the Pier in the evening for ice cream. The unit had everything we needed and was so clean and organized. We can't wait to return. Our only suggestion is to add a Keurig coffee pot. Then it truly would be perfect!

We really enjoyed our time at La Playa for a little getaway without the kids! The ease of walking everywhere in Folly was amazing, especially with the crazy traffic from all the other vacationers. Only complaint would have to be how overgrown the path was from the the condos to the beach. Perfect for two people but I wouldn't try to squeeze any more in there unless you want to be stepping on each other's toes!

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at La Playa. The unit is comfortably furnished for 2, with beautiful views of the ocean, only a few steps to the beach, and a short walk to the pier and town. We enjoyed morning coffee on the "deck" in the sunshine. Although there was a gas fireplace we weren't able to use it even though the nights were cool enough.

Very Professional

Although my family and I were never able to actually stay in this condo, I felt the need to review how an emergency was handled by them. We were suppose to spend a week in this condo just after hurricane Matthew hit the area. Unfortunately, Folly Beach did not regain electricity and were unable to arrive. The management company stayed in email contact with me and provided me daily updates as to the progression of the situation. Once we decided to request a refund, it was received very quickly and with no hassle. We hope to return and stay in this condo in the future.

Pleasantly surprised!

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. Very clean, and not over done with "trinkets" very tidy. Furniture choices were nice (sofa gold tan leather and didn't look over used). Appliances were all updated with a modern sink faucet that was great for refilling water bottles! The location was the best we have ever had at Folly (in the past stayed at two different houses). From the balcony view you seem secluded, but from the bedroom window you are close to everything (a small walk to Bert's; or any restaurant). We will stay here again sometime. You do share a washer and dryer with the unit next door. It was not an issue for us, but never had that before.

Every time I go to Folly Beach I ALWAYS stay at La Playa.. beautifully decorated, great appliances and a new BIG sofa bed. La Play is conveniently located close to the pier and all downtown activities, stores and restaurants.

Absolutely Wonderful Condo

The condo was exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the view and how convenient it was to restaurants and shops. It was a great place for our first trip to the beach with our 2 dogs. The only thing that was unexpected was that the balcony is all open. No real privacy but we adjusted and everyone in the complex was very friendly. We would recommend this condo and Folly Beach to friends. As far as eating, Rita's is a must - great food and atmosphere. We were disappointed that Bowen's Island didn't have oysters, so if you are going for the oysters, call ahead. Thanks Greg for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!

No deceiving pictures or offerings. Got it all. Very comfortable. Clean. Innnnnnncredible views. Local charm/atmosphere. Greg's restaurant suggestions were right on. The fish at the Crosbi (?) store/market was probably very fresh but prices were discouraging. Looooooooved the Lost Dog breakfast and Bowen Island fish (wonderful margarita too). Went everywhere without a car (well you need a car to get to Bowen Island). Thanks Greg! Your professional relations are also to be commended!

Walking out of the front door and being on the beach was perfect. Needless to say the view of the beach and the Folly Beach pier was incredible. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. The condo was clean, comfortable, cozy and perfect for two. Only two things I would of liked to have were space in the closet to hang my clothes and our balcony was a walk thru for our neighbors so we were not able to sit in the morning and enjoy coffee in private.

Another great Folly Beach vacation!

My wife and I just returned from our second Folly Beach vacation (late February) -- again staying at Greg's condo. Last year's positive experience made our decision to return very easy. As the other reviews say, this small beach front condo is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The location is great if you like to park your car and walk (to the beach and to nearby restaurants). We drove only to get to the Bowen Island seafood restaurant and for a visit to Charleston. Relative to other beach houses on the island, the rental rate for this condo is nicely low. A fully equipped kitchen, internet connection, cable TV, a very comfortable bed, and an ocean view (and beach access) make for a very comfortable stay. The only thing I would warn interested renters about is the unpredictability of noise from other people in surrounding units. It's a roll of the dice really -- for our stay it was quiet most of the time, but there were a couple days of remodeling work happening upstairs and what sounded like enthusastic furniture rearranging above us on one night. Spend the extra money on a beach house if you plan on being indoors most of the time and want to be sure of a quiet place -- our time is mostly spent outdoors, and so the occasional sound of footsteps or voices is not much of a concern for us. Overall, we highly recommend this condo -- and the Folly Beach experience in general. It is ideal for two people -- last year we had two teenagers along who were fine with sleeping pads on the floor (and cable TV). Favorite spots include breakfast at the Lost Dog Cafe, Taco Boy, and exploring tide pools at the south end of the island (time your walk for when the tide is going down). We'll certainly book another stay at Greg's cozy beach condo!

Perfect Vacation in a Great Beachfront Condo

We just returned from an awesome week in Folly Beach, and Greg's condo was ideal. My husband and I were very comfortable, and the location is top notch. The beach access and views along with proximity to the restaurants made for a perfect stay. The condo was just as described; in great condition-and could have accommodated a couple kids as well. We followed all the restaurant suggestions, and thoroughly enjoyed Bowen Island. I hope we can head back to Folly same time next year, and will definitely see if this is available. Thanks!

My husband and I enjoyed a great week at Folly Beach. The condo was very comfortable. Right on the ocean, close enough to walk to shops and great restaurants yet peaceful and quiet in the evening. It was a very short drive to historic Charleston, USS Yorktown, and a must see Magnolia Garden. We would definitely chose this rental again. Greg was very easy to work with and the condo was top notch. We couldn't have asked for more.

Very Nice Condo - Outstanding Location! - I would stay again

We stayed at Greg's condo for 4 days over Labor Day weekend. Dealing with Greg was outstanding. When you send an email he gets right back with you very quickly. We enjoyed being able to go out the front door and be on the beach for long walks and to visit friends staying a block away. GREAT to have a designated parking spot to come and go... lots of cars parked to go on the beach so that was more important than I thought it would be. The condo was very clean... My "cleanfreak" wife was quite happy. Decor was nice and functional. Internet access was good. Proximity to the pier and hub of activity was fine. A little less crowded further north on the beach, but you would have to rent a house instead of condo... the private boardwalk for condo guests was handy... and I am so glad we stayed beach front. Sitting on the chairs by the front door to watch the sun rise with a cup of coffee was nice. Greg was great to deal with...Took good care of us and I would definitely stay there again if I return to Folly Beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here feb 4 to 11-- even our pup Winston was delighted with the wonderfully easy access to the beach, and his first visit to a restaurant-- Lost dog Cafe welcomes pooches on the porch and serves great brunch! Very comfortable condo, great location, and an owner with Southern gentility!

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend. We were in walking distance of everything we needed and were lucky enough to get to experience "Folly Gras". Folly Island is great place to get away for a long weekend. Thanks Greg, for sharing your "slice of heaven"!

Great place for couples!

If you want a small place, with awesome ocean front views and private access to the wide sandy beach, this is the place. You could easily park your car on arrival and never move it until your departure day. Everything is that close. There's a market 1 block away, shops and restaurants 2 blocks away, and the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, with a shop and and a restaurant is only 5 buildings away! The condo is not too fancy, but very clean and well furnished. The owner bent over backwards to make our last minute decision to visit the beach happen. I would recommend La Playa to anyone wanting a beach vacation within walking distance of all that Folly Beach has to offer.

Perfect Place

I was just remembering our wonderful weekend at Folly Beach and remembered that I had not written this yet. The condo was perfect, right on the beach, very clean and well maintained. Greg was the perfect owner to do business with and I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We definitely used a lot of Greg's recommendations for dining and shopping. Everything was perfect. Thanks Greg. Hope to see you sometime in the very near future.

Second time at La Playa

This was our second time staying at La Playa, and it was every bit as good as the first. The location is wonderful, the place is clean and comfortable, and did I mention the location? Once you park your car, you don't have to get back in it until you leave. We all adore the property, and my son really enjoys the waves! Walking the dog on the beach in the morning and watching the moon over the water in the evenings are treats not to be missed. I am sure that we will stay again!

Family Vacation

We loved La Playa and Folly Beach. The place is just as nice as the photos indicate. Greg was very helpful when the a.c. faltered. He got it fixed that day. It was very meaningful for us to have our dog on a beach vacation. The beach is wonderfully close. A lot of activity on the beach from sunrise to sunset, but not too crowded. La Playa es muy buena.

We loved it!

We enjoyed our stay in this condo very much! It was the perfect location for walking to all the restaurants on the island, and of course, you can't beat being right on the beach! It was very clean upon arrival, and exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The bed was super comfy! Communication from the owner was prompt. We would love to come back!

Winter Escape

The listing and photos were very accurate. The place was very clean and right on the beach. We walked on the beach every day and were able to walk everywhere in town in 5 to 10 minutes. Very nice little town to relax in. 20 minute drive to downtown Charleston. We had no issues with the unit or in any of the dealings with the owner. We would recommend this as a romantic escape for two or for a small family with dogs. We brought our pets and they loved being on the beach. We will be back.

Great place for a winter retreat

Arriving in mid January during cooler weather, the gas fireplace was a real treasure and sitting on the porch in the warm morning sun was a special treat. The location being a block away from Center Street made all the restaurants and stores of the island easy walking distance so we were not always jumping in the car. Others staying in the same building seemed to be there for a same reason, a pleasant, uncrowded winter retreat and this fit the bill.

Wonderful Stay

I would most definitely recommend this condo and hated to leave yesterday. The pictures don't do the place justice.I feel this is not just a "slice of paradise" but rather the whole enchilada! It is perfect location, beautiful sunrises. The owner, Nancy & Olivia went over and beyond to answer questions and be helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay, I can not wait to return.

Honeymoon stay

Our stay in this condo for the week 4-27-13 through 5-4-13 was excellent! The location is great, not only on Folly Beach but in relation to Charleston and other surrounding areas as well. Here on Folly you have several restaurants & the infamous Bert's Market within walking distance. Folly is a great shelling beach for those who love the treasures of the sea. This first floor condo was very clean and though we didn't get to use the fireplace it gave a nice touch to the living room. We highly recommend it to everyone & we will be back next year.

Loved our stay!

Very nice, clean, comfy condo. The location could not be better, we loved being able to walk everywhere and not have to pay for additional parking. Loved sitting on the porch at night watching sunset and meeting the other nice folks in the building - all were super friendly and most had dogs, our dog loved being able to go right out to the beach. Very nice bed and linens, super clean, well stocked kitchen. The owner has a nice book about the area in the condo with things to do, menus, etc. Good books and games as well. Folly is charming, Mr. Johns is the best place for beach gear, t-shirts, with the store on the Pier coming in a close 2nd. My husband loved fishing at the pier which is just a few steps away and I loved the beach chair and umbrella rental that was almost right outside the condo on the beach. Favorite breakfast was at The Lost Dog, our dog loved it too and they have dog water bowls out front and the waitstaff brings dogs cookies to your pet! Loved the Crab Shack on the main street, great she-crab soup, crabcakes, and if you love bloody Mary's - you have to order the Crabby Mary - comes with a steamed crab leg! Wish I had one now! We were surprised how good the food turned out to be at Locklears Beach City Grill right on the Pier, by far the best burger and fries, tried Rita's as well, but Locklears has them beat. Bowens Island is an experience, HUGE fried food Portions, we had the Frogmore Stew and the bar- tender told us we chose the best thing on the menu - GO EARLY - it gets packed. Also another favorite spot was Red's in Mt. Pleasant - a short drive, right on the water. The pier in Mt. Pleasant is very nice as well. We will definitely be back and stay here again!!! Thanks for sharing your condo with us!

Hillbilly Surfers

We could walk out the door and surf, boogie board, kayak, body surf, bike ride and run after about a 1 minute through the dunes. Every thing you need is a short walk or bike ride away. There's a large area underneath the building to lock your toys up. After our son wore us out beach frolicking we could retreat to the porch and still watch him safely while he played in the waves. We spent most of our time outside but the condo is very nice and had everything we needed. Folly Beach is a laid back and fun town.....we'll be back!

Well-appointed unit in perfect location

This is a small but very efficiently laid-out unit that could not be in a better, more central location. It is right on the beach and close to all shops and yummy dining choices. Bert's market is a block away and awesome. The pipes were there, but it was peaceful and quiet. We have been to other beaches where replenishment is also in progress and we not bothered by this. On one of the windy days the pipes actually provided a wind break and that is where everyone set up there beach blankets. The pull out couch was a fun and very comfortable novelty for our 7-year old. The condo has everything you need and all instructions (for fireplace, what to do with linens, and so on) are very clear. We really appreciated the two washing machine tabs marked for our unit! No one wants to fly with detergent or by a whole bottle to do do two loads. It is a thoughtful and appreciated detail. We also did not realize til we got there how AWESOME it is to have the parking space, as these are at a real premium on the island. Overall we are really pleased with the unit and enjoyed out stay.

lovely condo

We have stayed here before quite a few times and it is in the best location on the beach. The owner is in the process of remodeling and has added a new Sleeper Sofa, a huge tv in the living area, painted, new rug, shades and it is a work in progress.. Laplaya is located very close to all attractions and eating places and within walking distance to all.. the town is in the process of beach renovation and the pipes referred to in another comment are in no way a distraction. In fact as a matter of interest one day it was very windy and we took our chairs to the beach and set up next to the pipes which provided an excellent wind break. unless we want to zip over to Charleston ( 15 minute's away ) we park our car in the space provided and don't move it until time for us to check out to come home.. This is a well appointed, cute condo and I will stay there again.

Best Mothers Day Ever!!

Stayed at La Playa for Mother’s Day with my daughters and enjoyed every minute. The condo is clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with the beach view and the dolphins swimming in the ocean. An extra plus for us was the cabin came equipped with all the necessary household stuff for our entire stay. The owners is very responsive and helpful. We will definitely rent La Playa condo again.

Magical week

We stayed at Laplaya the week of Memorial Day. It was fantastic. The views were amazing both day and night. At night, the lights of the pier, coupled with the relaxing sounds were magical. Lots of great food a short walk away. Best vacation ever. Great way to unplug and relax. Unbelievable view of the ocean even while napping on the sofa Loved watching the dolphins and sunrises. Super clean. A definite must stay while on Folly.

Caressed by the coast

Stayed at La Playa for the best beach vacation I have ever had. La Playa provided all the comfort a vacation calls for with a fabulous view. Very nice home away from home feel filled with all the creature comforts you could ask for. Very clean and well furnished. Many things to do within walking distance. Learn to SUP, parasailing, and salt water fishing right off the pier. At the same property I met avid bikers, animal lovers and treasure hunters all very pleased with how Folly spoke to each of them.

this get repetitious but LaPlaya is the ONLY condo I stay in while at Folly Beach. The folks at Follys Best Rentals are awesome to get along with.. This condo is located within walking distance of ANY place you would like to go located on Folly Beach.. I park my car when I arrive and don't move it until I unfortunately have to go home.. They have been refurnishing and updating for some time now and my surprise was a new, very comfy, Sofa bed.. PLUS the owners have taken out the standard uncomfortable mattress and bot a new therapeutic mattress that you aren't even aware its a sofa bed. great location, great views, just a lovely place to stay..

Folly Beach is the best!

We have vacationed at Folly's Beach many times. This is the first time that we've stayed at La Playa and the unit was great. It was super clean. We are allergic to many things including dogs, but we did not have any issues! We loved the comfy memory foam bed, the plush towels and all the amenities, including the flat screen TV. We would rent this unit again for future vacations.

Great Condo --- Great Location

We recently had the opportunity to stay at this condo on Folly Beach. This is a beach front condo with an incredible view of the ocean. It included secure parking for one car; however, it is centrally located within walking distance to all of the best restaurants. Therefore, we simply relaxed, parked the car and walked to all of the must see places at Folly Beach. The owner and rental agency were wonderful to work, trustworthy, and focused on providing an enjoyable experience to us during our stay. Finally, with prior approval, this condo is pet-friendly

Fantastic view!

My husband and I loved this condo. We walked everywhere and really appreciated the book the owners supplied which listed some of the local restaurants and attractions. Be sure to go to the hidden gem The Black Magic Cafe. The condo was fully stocked and very peaceful, yet in close proximity to all of the action! Beautiful view and just a walk out to the beach. We were there during some of the coolest weather of the season and really appreciated the fireplace, The owners were very professional and easy to work with. Thanks! We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

After realizing we needed a getaway, my husband and I planned a trip to Folly using vrbo. We've used vrbo many times and this has been our best experience. This condo was beautiful, so clean, and right on the beach!! The location was in walking distance of all the restaurants and bars! We were happy with every little detail including the book created by the owner to include all of their recommendations. We loved staying at this property and plan to be back! Highly recommended!

Hello, 1st time staying on Folly and the location of this condo couldn't be beat! So easy to walk to everywhere, but especially the beach. Other guests were quiet and considerate, loved seeing the sweet and well behaved dogs that some people brought. I had a problem with the coffee maker and a new one was delivered within the hour. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Very romantic place to spend our first year anniversary!

Honeymoon

My husband and I stayed at La Playa for our honeymoon. I have been to Folly Beach before, but my husband has not, but this view took my breath away. I could not have asked for a nicer, more RELAXING experience!! We had planned to save money and cook while we were there, but that did not really happen. The restaurants we wonderful, Black Magic has a wonderful breakfast, and Bowen's Island is such a great restraurant, it was like seafood heaven!! The information book was awesome and helpful. The owner is wonderful...our neighbors were having issues with the wifi and within a half an hour, the owner was knocking on the door to our condo to fix it. I wish I had more "landlords" like that. The condo was clean, the bed was so relaxing and comfy that it was hard to get up in the morning, and the view was spectacular. By the end of the first day my husband told me that he would be a "snowbird" with me (we are from Pittsburgh, PA) any day and has officially become hooked on Folly Beach and is planning our vacation next year! The only thing that took some time to get used to was the people above us, who were a little noisy, although I am sure that they didn't mean to. Plus it gave us more reasons to go out and explore and enjoy the beach and downtown Charleston. I can not thank the owners enough for letting us spend time in their condo. We will definitely be back!!!

First time visitors to SC

This was our family's first time visiting South Carolina. Folly Beach was a wonderful place to visit and La Playa was the perfect place to stay. My 9 year old and 13 year old had a great time being right on the beach and they described it as being their best vacation ever, which includes many trips to FL and Disney. The location of the condo was convenient to all shops and restaurants. We truly enjoyed our stay at La Playa and would highly recommend it.
