We feel like we hit the jackpot for our SisterFest getaway. We were blown away by the accommodations, the hospitality, the friendly staff, and the Folly community as a whole. The hospitality industry could learn from the owner and the employees of Water’s Edge. Thank you, Paul and Allie, for the memorable, magical time at your top-notch inn.

Our stay at the Waters Edge Inn on Folly Beach was wonderful! We were welcomed on our arrival and made to feel like they were waiting for us! We were helped with our bags & offered Folly punch after our long journey. The room was beautiful! It had all the comforts we anticipated and a gorgeous view from the veranda. Breakfast each day was plentiful and a good variety and "Happy Hour" each evening was fun & encouraged conversation among guests. We especially liked that staff was always present and were accommodating to any need or question.

A short walk to everything Folly Beach. We took advantage of the complimentary breakfast every day! Staff is fantastic, beach is beautiful. They have chairs and umbrellas for a small fee and can shuttle you by golf cart to and from the beach, which is only a 10 minute walk away.

Absolutely love the quaintness of this Inn. The food is fantastic! the Staff you could not ask for a better group. Felt safe during Covid etc. I loved that it is small and you can get the golf cart shuttle when and wherever! Basically for singles and couples.
