Great spot on the bay/marsh side of Folly. Two blocks to the main street of bars/restaurants/stores. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was terrific and since we were late sleepers they allowed me to grab some before they shut it down at 10 to bring back to my sleeping wife. The hot tub is in the back with a nice... More

Best vacation ever!!!!!!! The breakfast was wonderful everyday. We were surprised they had a happy hour as well. The folly punch was wonderful. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone. We were so happy with the villa and the staff we booked another vacation there. This is a must stay at place.

Let me start by saying that I am only saying these things so that they will be fixed. Staff: only reason I'm giving 3 stars. Nice people. They do enter your room without you knowing they are going to. Housekeeping: never once vacuumed, wiped off or swept during our stay. Towels were always stained or had holes in them. Trash... More

Quite honestly we were utterly disappointed and dissatisfied.  The room we stayed in, the charleston,  was not what we anticipated.  There were spots on the walls that needed painting,  the tub was covered in a film of dust, and the bed was not what we paid for. In regards to the bed the pillow cases were either dirty or had... More

A modern and well appointed b & b centrally located. Very helpful staff. Chocolate chip cookies available 24/7 as well as free beverages. Very clean and well kept. Parking available on site; within walking distance to town and beach. Great restaurant options close by.

This was my fourth trip to Water's Edge. I just can't say enough about what an amazing place it is. It is private yet there is lots of room to socialize if that's what you want. The front desk people are just so helpful! The rooms are fabulous. Big enough that my daughter could do her yoga and I could... More

This inn has all the charm of a bed and breakfast (it feels like you're staying in an historic home, there is excellent food selection for happy hour and breakfast, small and friendly), but all the comforts of a modern hotel (clean, comfortable rooms/beds, quiet). It's the perfect blend - very well done. I wish there were more places like... More

Stayed here in early January a couple years back and really loved it. We stayed a total of 4 nights and ended up staying in 3 different rooms. We thought the breakfast's were great and really loved having the happy hour. The lady running the inn was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendations for dining!

Water's Edge Inn is AMAZING! It is the perfect getaway. This trip we stayed in Villa 14. The staff was amazing and took us anywhere we wanted to go via golf cart.

The Villas of Water's Edge Inn are the perfect choice for a visit to Folly and we are so glad you enjoyed them! With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, they are great for a family excursion to the beach or even a gathering of friends. Each villa is tastefully adorned and very cozy.
