Everyone needs a little "Vitamin Sea" and this Vintage Folly Beach Vacation home can give you that healthy dose of coastal comfort that you've been missing. This 4 bedroom 2 bath home is a throwback to more of the classic beach cottages and sits just across the street from the sands of Folly Beach. The wood used throughout the home provides a whisper of childlike memories that have been wonderfully aged by seasons of salty air. At the front of the home is a screened-in porch and in the back is a larger deck with a sunshade and plenty of room for gathering or grilling on the gas grill. Inside you'll find that everything is classic wood. This is a beautiful example of a classic Folly Beach House. Clean white linens, comfortable bedding and our assurance of a clean and comfortable stay are awaiting you! The home is equipped with a full kitchen and living room with a small dining area set between the two. In addition to the three bedrooms mentioned above is an adorable bunk room that overlooks the back deck. The room is furnished with a bunk tucked into the corner and some closet space. This little gem completes the sailing ship illusion. The public beach access is just a few steps away from Vitamin Sea so you get to mix all the luxuries of a day on the beach with the convenience of having the Atlantic Ocean at your fingertips. Stargazing, beach combing, sun bathing, swimming and any other beach activity you may be looking forward to is right outside your door. Vitamin Sea is located ten short blocks away from the crowds on Center Street so the peace and quiet of the ocean breeze rustling the fronds of the Palmetto trees while waves lap on shore is yours to savor. However, all of the shopping, dining and entertainment of Center Street is only a short drive or bike ride away.  The house has high speed WIFI and cable television.  The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cookware, coffee pot, Keurig, creamer, and filters.  Well behaved house-broken, flea treated dogs are welcome with approval. Please include the breed and size of the pet you want to bring when you inquire.  Also note that pets are not allowed in the beds or on the furniture and we highly recommend you bring a crate for them when you are not at the house, traveling and being in a strange place with strange smells and sounds can be very stressful for pets.   PETS:  This home is Pet “Friendly."  Please help us keep it that way by not allowing your pets on the beds or furniture. We ask that you bring a crate and crate your animal when you are away from the property as well. There is a non-refundable $75 pet fee.  You have to check the box for pets (it is located in the section with number of guests). There is a maximum of two medium sized dogs (50 pds.) or 3 small dogs (25 pds. or less).

Perfect location and we loved the feel of the home. It has a beautiful screened in porch and large back deck. The beds were comfortable and the space was clean with lots of extras. The only thing that I could suggest is that the ice maker be repaired and the king bed frame be replaced, it appears to be caving in... still super comfortable!

Very neat and clean - extremely convenient to get to the beach with plenty of parking. Had a few issues with some appliances which made meals a little tricky but it all worked out fine.

A few minor items in disrepair (door knobs, cabinets, etc.) and HVAC struggled to keep up but it was a very hot week! Great proximity to the beach which is nice with little kids! We had a wonderful trip to Folly Beach!

Great place on the beach for anyone looking for a nice house less than a block from the beach access. Nice big porch for relaxing and listening to the waves

This was my second stay at Folly working with Tony and the great people at FollyTime. Everything was perfect and can never say enough about the caring and response from FollyTime! I will never work with anyone else when staying at Folly! THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY STAY ANOTHER WONDERFUL VACATION!

Perfect sized beach cottage, very clean and comfortable!

Loved Folly Beach - easy rental check in/out and a lovely, attractive, well stocked, clean rental.

Vitamin Sea was a very charming, older beach house. We actually met the owner, & he informed us it was built in 1934. Very functional, was perfect for our needs. Back deck is great!! Only complaint is kitchen is a little short on cabinet space & could use a lounge chair in the living room. Great for a single family, but multi families may be a little cramped
by Bobby Mcnamara on 2020-03-23
The back room with the bunk bed smelled horrible. Everything else was great. Maybe a cabinet where food can be stored would be useful.

Just a stone's throw from the beach, in a quiet residential neighborhood yet only a mile from the entertainment in "downtown" Folly Beach, this comfortable cottage has kitschy charm and thoughtful amenities throughout. We especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen with a brand new herb/spice collection. Recommend getting your groceries at the Harris Teeter on Folly Road, as the local grocery story is too limited. Would be great to have a laundry basket in the house. Please fix the door of the smaller bathroom, it does not stay shut or lock.

We love renting through Follytime Beach Rentals. They are very good about communication and every message or request was answered shortly. Vitamin Sea was well located and was the perfect spot for our girls weekend. The cottage has a rustic feel, but the beds were ridiculously comfortable and the screened porch was inviting. The kitchen is well appointed. We had absolutely everything we needed.

We loved it! Very well stocked and equipped for a family of 7. It’s super close to the ocean!! Clean and comfortable
by Anna Deiters on 2019-10-01
Very clean and comfortable beds. Our family loved playing games on the front screened in porch every night! Kitchen has everything you need (even a mixer!). Right beside the public access. Cute backyard and deck. We were not disappointed staying in Folly Beach. Fishing was great. The center are and over with all the shopping and restaurants is 1.3 miles away and is happening! Great beach with easy access to Bilo/Publix/Walmart. They even have spices and boogie boards and beach chairs! Outdoor shower adds extra room. We had four adults, three teenagers, and a 12 year old and were comfortable.

Had a wonderful time at Vitamin Sea! Great location and super clean. We will stay there again in the future.
by Whit Faulconer on 2019-08-26
Such a classic beach experience. It’s always so much easier when you know there’s a support system in place in case something goes wrong. It isn’t about there never being a problem on vacation, that’s an unrealistic if not impossible expectation. It’s about how do problems get addressed that makes all the difference. This group is responsive, available and thoughtful so you just don’t have to worry. Will return many many times.

Such a cute vintage beach house. The location was great. We had a great family get away.

Vitamin Sea is the cutest shabby chic beach bungalow. We really loved the decor and all of the antique pieces. The beds were extremely comfortable and slept well. Our trip was a short one so we didn’t have much opportunity to use the kitchen but it seemed to be very well appointed. The outdoor shower and the water hose on the back deck were very convenient. The front porch got much use- one or two of us was always out there. The beach access is almost right across the street. We were very fortunate to find a place that we could rent for less than a week at a time on Folly Beach this time of year. We really enjoyed our time with family from Texas this weekend. Only recommendations I have is to perhaps find a way to lock the bathroom door and to change the knob on the front bedroom door but neither of these would keep me from returning. Thank you for a wonderful vacation Vitamin Sea!

We really enjoyed our stay in this "old style" island beach house! We loved the front porch and the spacious back deck. Beds were very comfortable. Location was a quick step to beach access and then out onto the beach. Also a good location for riding bikes down to Bert's or dinner on Center Street. We always received a quick and courteous response from the management company if we needed anything. Thanks for a great time. Love Folly!
by Noelle Dunn on 2019-07-09
Vitamin Sea is a lovely little cottage. We loved how easy the beach access was, and the outdoor shower was so convenient. We loved our stay and hope to be back!

Great location, nice house!
by Jo Kingsman on 2019-06-23
Exceptional service from Folly Time! There were a couple of items missing and the gas grill was working correctly. Within a very short amount of time - the items were delivered and a brand new gas grill installed! They really care that you are comfortable and have everything you need! Will definitely make sure I rent from them again!
by Barbara Bannister on 2019-06-10
We really enjoyed our stay! 👍.
by Jessie Gavigan on 2019-05-30
What a lovely beach cottage! We were able to find everything we needed in the kitchen, including 3 different coffee makers! Easy short walk to the beach, plenty of room outside on the back deck and side yards to play corn hole while grilling on the gas grill. I thought afternoons would be hot on the back deck but with the huge trees all around we were able to spend lots of time out there. You can definitely tell this home has been loved by its owners through the years, the growth chart for the kids and fur babies was precious.

We spent 10 glorious days here with extended family in May for 2 graduations. Clean, quaint, with comfortable beds. Bathrooms were a bit tight but serviceable. This was the most fully stocked house we have rented. Plenty of cookware, dishes for a group, and every type of glassware to make any cocktail-including gimlet glasses! Proximity to the beach was fabulous. Just cross the street and you are there. Easy commute to C of C and The Citadel for events. Our dogs and us had a great time! Thank you for allowing them to join us. We will definitely return.
by Dara Bradshaw on 2019-03-18
The house was very clean with clean, plentiful linens. Great location, easy to find, very comfortable seating and beds, well stocked kitchen for our needs, and steps from the beach!
by Tammy Casey on 2019-01-25
We stayed at Vitamin Sea and it is a truly vintage cottage. My only complaint was you could not see the beach. It was convenient to walk to the beach and you could take a pet but to be that close... also underneath is kinda scary as someone could sleep there and you would never know it.
by Keely Hass on 2018-11-06
Very good communication and very easy check in and check out
by Anne Reeder on 2018-09-28
To say we loved this house is an understatement! The house is beautiful with its wood floors and ceilings. Comfortable beds and cute decor! The kitchen has everything you would need for your stay, too, which was a huge help for my family and me. It has a very homey feel, and it’s very close to the beach access. The front and back porches are perfect for meals and games! We loved the natural gas grill and the outdoor shower. We will rent this house every summer!

Excellent communication throughout, easy check-in and out, house clean and well equipped. Nice bed linens, bath, and beach towels. Convenient location for beach and town access.
