Great little spot but parking can be a challenge

I will say that the owner was very flexible, accomindating and kind to work with. The apartment was also very nice, clean and nicely decorated. The beach is only a few blocks away and the drive to Downtown Charleston is not too bad if you want to check it out. Noise was not too bad. We kept the fan from the A/C on for a little white noise and we hardly ever heard any excessive noise. There were the occasional sounds, but nothing that you wouldn't expect if you had a rented a condo instead.
The one thing that we hadn't anticipated was parking. We arrived around lunch rush and, although there is a reserved spot for the tenent, someone else had parked there. We parked on the side of the road with plenty of room for cars to get by just to go in to ask where we should park and when the room might be ready. By the time we got back to the car we got a $50 parking ticket. Apparently, if ANY of your wheels are touching the pavement, you get a ticket. You have to be completely in the dirt or grass. I really wish I would have known about the parking issues before coming here so our vacation didnt get off on a bad foot. I would suggest that the owner let guests know to look out for this as I had no way of knowing the City was so hostile towards visitors in Folly Beach.
If you plan to have only one meal at Lost Dog, make it breakfast! Everything was excellent! Parking issues asside, we would visit again. Thanks for having us!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review for the Loft and the cafe. I, also, heeded your suggestion and added some information to the listing about the parking "laws" on Folly. Hope you can get away to Folly again soon.
