Guestbook comments from the owner
Janet,

We enjoyed the southern hospitality from you and all we met. It was a long haul but worth every minute. Escaping the 12 degree weather in Michigan was the best. Loved the Fat Hen Restaurant on John's Island. We also found the lighthouse at the end of Folly delightful with few people, good shells, and a great picnic spot. The Flamingo Suite is charming, love the decor and colors. So quiet and relaxing.

Good luck to you and blessings,

Bob and Joan Kalamazoo, Michigan

LOVED OUR VISIT TO FOLLY FLAMINGO!

  • 5 of 5
The Flamingo suite was the perfect size for our family of 4. It was very spacious, and had everything we needed. The location is great - close to downtown and the beach. The suite was very clean, and Janet was wonderful. We will definitely keep Folly Flamingo in mind for any future visits to Folly Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jan,

I am glad we were able to accommodate you. We had a late cancellation yet was able to fill the week with some new visitors to the Flamingo Suite. So happy you and your family enjoyed your visit. I hope you were able to see the Caribbean colored water we experienced from the beach renourishment. It made Folly feel very tropical.

Best Wishes,
Janet

A CHARMING, HIDDEN GEM SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here and we could not have asked for a more perfect place for a beach getaway. We were steps away from the beach, and we could hear the waves crashing from our room inside. Once you step inside the gate on the property you are totally secluded and surrounded by a fantastic garden with many flamingos! This place has everything--a large deck to sit on and enjoy, outdoor shower, is steps to the beach, garden, and is close to the many shops and restaurants and great 24 hour locally run grocery store. The place was so clean and cozy. The owner was so gracious and accommodating to our last minute booking too. This was our most memorable beach stay and plan on returning soon.

Owner's Response: Hello Heather,

So glad we could book your stay in the Sandpiper Suite. It is small and cozy but such a sweet space with its large window views of the courtyard, the warmth of the bead board walls and cathedral ceilings, and the slate floor. It makes a great extra bedroom for the Flamingo Suite so two couples can have complete privacy and still enjoy each others company sharing the kitchen, great room, baths, and covered deck. Great reviews and great guests make us happy. Hope to see you again soon.

Thank You,
Janet Crouch

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening your home to us. It was very quaint,clean,up to date and a breath of fresh air!! The garden was gorgeous and loved the outdoor shower. Being able to walk to the beach hassle free was great. Parking was a plus. My whole family LOVED it and we all were home sick for your home when we left. Can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Hello Lori,

Thank you so much and happy you enjoyed the house, courtyard, and location. I think it is a great place for families, extended families, and friends to rent all three areas. It is nice to be together and still have your pocket of privacy if your stay is several days or a week long. Grand parents love being with kids all day and relaxing on their own in the afternoon in the Sunburst Suite. A family of five can enjoy the Flamingo Suite, and a single person or couple will enjoy the serenity of the Sandpiper Suite that offers an overflow if six or seven accommodate the Flamingo Suite. Just an example of the flexibility of the house. It is an easy walk to most business, beach, and the river side of the island. Thank you again and hope to have you back soon. I, also, have a lake house in Saluda, North Carolina should you ever want to raft the Green River, experience the Gorge Zipline, or visit Asheville. We call the house on Lake Hosea that sleeps four CAMP RAM'S HEAD. (saluda.com town website)

A WONDERFUL PLACE AND A RESPONSIVE, GRACIOUS OWNER

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have traveled quite often and have never been disappointed with a HomeAway rental unit; however, our Folly Flamingo Suite experience was truly exceptional.

Although the unit we rented was delightful and greatly exceeded our expectations (very clean, nicely decorated, well equipped, short walk to the beach and restaurants, and competitively priced), what made this experience so very special was the friendliness and responsiveness of the gracious owner.

The owner was very responsive and accommodating with our last minute reservation request. She and her Folly Flamingo Suite played a major role in making our brief stay in the Charleston area a memorable experience. We had a wonderful weekend. Guaranteed ... Folly Flamingo will be our first choice for all of our future trips to the Charleston area.

GREAT LOCATION, NOT VERY CLEAN

  • 3 of 5
First I would like to list the pro's. Excellent location to the restaurants, beach, and also Bert's market. Nicely furnished, plenty of space. I enjoyed the outdoor shower. Janet was an absolute joy to work with, mostly because she would allow us to rent for less than a week. Having said that, it was NOT clean. Apparently there was a misscommunication between Janet and Susan(the manager). We were told we could arrive early because there was no one who stayed in the flamingo before us, but Susan was not aware. When we arrived the unit was not cleaned. There was a horrible foul odor radiating throughout the kitchen, the countertops were sticky, the bathroom tub had not been cleaned. After we cleaned the unit it was a great place to stay. The manager did respond promptly, and we were told she hadn't made her "final walk through yet." A "final walk through," does not mean the whole unit still needs to be cleaned. It was VERY stressful. It may sound harsh, but I feel like I need to be honest.

Owner's Response: Hello Alisha,

I have learned my lesson about letting folks check in early. Best to stick with the rules so all parties are happy. The smell was a piece of shrimp that was left in the disposal with a dime (?).
I will take responsibility for the suite not being ready. I was letting folks come early so they could have the most beach time possible. We just ask that they park, not unload anything, and go over to the beach while we cleaned. Our check in is always 4 PM so we have the time to properly clean everything. Susan manages three houses and was busy with other properties and was not aware I had told you you could come early. I hope you will give us another chance to make your next Folly stay a FIVE STAR one!!

Warm Regards,
Janet Crouch

FOLLY FLAMINGO IS A HIT

  • 5 of 5
I was extremely pleased during my stay at the Folly Flamingo. The property looks exactly the same as the pictures on the internet.

The house was clean, comfortable and very accommodating. It's location is fabulous. A short walk to the beach, restaurants, beach shops and a small grocery store.

The beach is clean with smooth sand.

My sister and two neices visited for five days and during our stay we tried to decide when we would come back.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Owner's Response: Hello Cindy,

Thank you so much. Susan was certainly impressed with the young women. It is always a pleasure to have guests who show respect for your property and other people. I do hope you and your family and friends will return. In a world where values have certainly been challenged by the media and a lack of good parenting it is a wonderful experience to find some good old fashion folks who understand the golden rule as oppose to gold rules. I hope to meet you someday.

Warm Regards,
Janet Crouch
