“Awesome Bed & Breakfast!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My husband & I celebrated part of our 10th year wedding anniversary here. We wanted to have the Charleston Beach experience for the first half of our vacation. We spent 3 nights here. From the very beginning the staff was amazing and made us feel at home!! Upon our arrival we were offered freshly baked cookies and Folly Punch!!!! The staff was very knowledgeable about restaurants in the Charleston downtown area, which was very helpful and they also made reservations as well! The breakfast was yummy and there was happy hour every afternoon with tasty snacks and delicious Folly Punch! We stayed in The Charleston and the Hemingway Room. Each room was decorated beautifully with lovely bathrooms. I really liked the Hemingway Room as it had a large screened in terrace which overlooked the wetlands. This terrace was perfect to have breakfast and to relax in at the end of the day. The Charleston Room was a very private and beautiful room which was located on the ground level with a separate entrance. The room has a lovely soaking tub! We had a wonderful experience here and we highly recommend this wonderful B & B.

My husband and I recently stayed at Water's Edge Inn and we very impressed! Immediately upon arrival, the staff made us feel right at home and welcomed us with their Folly Punch! We were able to stay in the Floridian and the Regatta, each beautifully decorated and vey comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful and we looked forward to the 4-7pm daily Happy Hour! Have to mention the yummy cookies in the evening ..... Soooooo good!! There is such attention to detail at Water's Edge you will see why we consider it a hidden gem. Just a short walk, bike or golf cart ride to the beach. Easy walk to any restaurant in Folly Beach. It is the place to stay in Folly Beach!

Room Tip: The Floridian room is beautiful with a screened deck. The Regatta is beautiful and the newest room...

The staff made us feel like we were at home. We stayed in the Hemingway room...it was perfect. A great breakfast every morning, happy hour from 4-7 every evening, and fresh baked cookies every night when we came in. To many personal touches to list them all. We will be back...again and again! Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a special stay.

I just got home from a wonderful vacation spent at Water's Edge Inn. Every year my cousins and I take a girls trip. In the past we have enjoyed spending this time together exploring new places. After this year, we were so impressed by the level of professionalism, friendliness, and cleanliness, we are looking to make Water's Edge our vacation spot every year. We stayed in one of the villas and could not have been more pleased. Well Done! A pool would make the stay perfect, but with the friendly staff transporting you to the beach, this minor flaw is vastly overlooked. Breakfast was delicious, and happy hour was a great touch! I am looking forward to staying here for many years to come. I highly recommend staying here, I can't say it enough!

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 15. It was quiet and very spacious. Slept 6 very comfortably and we didn't fe...

The villa was booked based on the website and went on a wing and a prayer... we were definitely not disappointed!! The pictures were exactly how the villa looked. The kitchen was well stocked and the entire villa was extremely clean!! If we needed something, all we had to do was ask and the staff was right there. Happy hour was awesome.. we spent it with a staff member, Gina, who could not be any more precious!!. It was nice to meet others as well during out time at the main house. the owner, Paul, was great.. very personable!! The grounds were well maintained and we had no issue with parking ( our group had 4 cars). It rained one entire day and it was so relaxing sitting on the screened porch watching the rain.. felt very tropical. I really can't say enough about our experience except I can't wait to go back!!

Water's Edge was a great place to spend a few days after our wedding. They were incredibly welcoming and had great suggestions for the area. We felt at home but also felt like we had the privacy and anonymity you want when you're on a romantic getaway.

We stayed in the Caribbean room, which has a gorgeous bathroom and tub, a nice screened-in porch and a beautiful canopy bed. The mattress could be better quality--maybe a little less sunken-in, but otherwise everything was perfect!

This is hands down my favorite place I've ever stayed. This was our second vacation here and I cannot wait to plan the next. Everything is perfection. The rooms are beautiful decorated with comfortable, clean linens and sparkling bathrooms. The breakfast is delicous. Happy hour is a nice touch too! The grounds are gorgeous with several places to sit and enjoy the afternoons or a cocktail. The staff has always been extremely accomidating, going above and beyond what you would typiclally find in a hotel. They gave us rides to and from the beach so we wouldn't have to tote our chairs and bags each day and offered great dining tips. The location is perfect - tucked away from the main drag tourist scene. You can still walk to most everything. If you are a couple looking for a quiet getaway with excellent amenities, this is the place for you. The villas offer more of a family setting if you're traveling with children. Thank you, Water's Edge, for another wonderful vacation! We'll see you next trip!

Room Tip: The Pacific is the largest room with the best view.
