What a hidden charm Water's Edge Inn is!! We rented one of the 3 bedroom condos and had two other couples join us to celebrate my 50th birthday. The location was terrific away from the hustle and bustle, but an easy drive to get to downtown when you wanted to. The condo was simply and beautifully decorated and had all...

Our first time to Folly Beach and first time to Charleston. It was nice to go back to Waters Edge every night after enjoying the sights, food and shopping of downtown Charleston. My wife and I are already talking about getting back to Waters Edge! All of the staff was extremely friendly and we could not have asked for a...

The room was wonderful, so plush, cozy and comfortable. Fireplace just right for the night chill. Bathroom to die for, never wanted to get out of the huge whirlpool tub. My daughter and I usually make 3 or 4 trips a year to B & Bs to relax and catch up with each other. Water's Edge is at the very...

During our stay we were in the Atlantic which was a beautiful open room with a canopy bed, fireplace, etc. There was champagne awaiting and the room was spotless. The service from Lauren at the front desk was excellent! She was very welcoming and made herself available if needed. I would recommend this to anyone interested in spending a weekend...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. The staff is first rate and the rooms are clean and well appointed but ours was not spacious. We stayed here as a winter getaway and it rained the whole time. This wouldn't have been a problem except there was only one chair in the room so you must sit or...

Thank you so much for your comments regarding your stay with us. I regret that the need for a second chair was not addressed during your stay as we would have moved one from another location for you. I have discussed this with the owner and he feels that we can add another chair to that room without compromising space....

Some late night noise from some young people at 1AM and an outside hot tub that did not work so well were the only issues. These can be fixed and I would not hesitate to return. The staff was pleasant and did all possible to make our stay a real treat. The accommodations were fantastic! We had a ground floor...
