Great visit. Gina helped us feel welcome and at home right from the start. The beach is walking distance. The main drag with all the restaurants is right around the corner. We're already talking about our next visit to Water's Edge!

I've stayed here so many times, and always look forward to returning. The owner and the ladies at the front desk are always so pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's very convenient to everything in Folly Beach, and an easy walk to the beach.

Very friendly service, nicely decorated rooms, we could choose what we each wanted for breakfast the evening before, fresh cookies always available, easy parking. Our balcony overlooked a bay and the view was very nice. Close to the main street with all the restaurants & also walking distance to the public beach. It was a very relaxing stay!
