Guestbook comments from the owner

“This is our second stay at Folly Breeze and our family had a wonderful time. We were welcomed with a nice note and a bottle of wine which we enjoyed. There is ample room in the house for a family of ten. We truly enjoyed the breezes from the porch, the swing in the back, and the yard is lovely and well groomed. Of course, we loved the internet access. Thank you for a wonderful stay and providing everything we needed. We look forward to staying with you again.”

Amazing house and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my best friend's bachelorette at this house with eight of our friends and it couldn't have been a more perfect place! Unfortunately, it was a bit chilly and we had a massive storm during what was supposed to be our beach day, but we just headed to the beach bars to weather it out.

The views are spectacular and the photos don't do the upper porch justice! It's the perfect place for sunset drinks. The house is spacious and clean, with true SC beach charm. Absolutely recommend and would love to stay again!

Owner's Response: We like to accommodate groups of friends who travel from distant places to get together. Our house provides areas such as the tower porch and the front porch for sitting, relaxing and catching up with each other's lives.

Happy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family members from 2-72 years old were happy and comfortable at Folly Breeze. I especially loved the beautiful and abundantly equipped kitchen. We were delighted with all the little extras like the beach toy closet and the cupboard with games and books. It is "almost" on front beach since you just walk across the street and right onto the beach crossover. The beach itself is wide and usable at any tide. (Last year we stayed at the far East end of Folly and there was zero beach at high tide.) It is quite evident the owners take excellent of care of their property and their guests. You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: We like to hear that our home is enjoyed by all age groups. The kitchen, toys and games get a lot of use so we try to keep them well-stocked and replace worn items as needed.

Folly Breeze was Perfect for our Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Folly Breeze for our Wedding. After searching many options at Folly Beach we fell In love with the idea of having our ceromony on the beach and reception at Folly Breeze. This house was perfect the well maintained backyard and 3 car garage gave a lot of options for decorating and a backup plan if weather wasn't ideal, also one of a few that allowed the number of guest we were planning on inviting. Mary Lou was so helpful with all of my questions and always responded quickly! If you are considering a beach wedding at Folly or a beach get away I would recommend this house!

Good Vibrations

  • 5 of 5

Folly Breeze made our daughter's 21st birthday truly special. Spacious enough to have friends from College of Charleston join for dinner and a "sleepover." Comfortable enough for a crowd to curl up on the couch and enjoy a movie.

Breezes were abundant as was the sunshine. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets on the front porch or the roof deck overlooking the beach. Beautifully landscaped yard and well maintained house - without being "fussy." You can really relax at Folly Breeze.

Far enough from town to be peaceful - close enough to run down to Bert's (a great local store) to grab whatever you forgot on your grocery list.

Awesome beach popular with surfers. Good vibes all around!

Owner's Response: You've confirmed that our house offers the amenities and accommodations that we had hoped would be most appreciated by our guests i.e. spacious living room area, front porch with ocean breezes, tower porch for relaxation, and easy access to area attractions. So glad to hear all went well with your stay.

Folly Breeze-It Doesn't Get Any Better

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for ourselves and 4 other family members for our trip to Charleston for our son's wedding. The listing description was totally accurate, but could not possibly do justice to the quality of the construction and attention to detail throughout the house. While the events of the wedding kept us all quite busy during our stay, the location, location, location of the house afforded us the chance for beach walks and sunshine! The layout of the house is fabulous with wonderful, comfortable rooms and porches in which we shared meals, relaxation and laughter; retreat areas to sit and read a book quietly; bedrooms and bathrooms that offered quiet and privacy. Every and anything one could need is provided in this house. The booking process was flawless, and the owner was very efficient in replying to a few of my questions. This is a one of a kind home and I highly recommend it. We will make it our destination home any time we visit the Charleston area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We were glad to hear that the house worked well for your visit to Charleston and activities around your son's wedding. Your opportunities to relax on the porch, the bedrooms and other areas of the house are exactly what we hoped to provide for our renters. We look forward to your return visit to Folly Breeze and hope that all of your subsequent visits are equally as pleasurable.

Outstanding. Do not hesitate to rent Folly Breeze.

  • 5 of 5

Folly Breeze is truly wonderful. It is even more beautiful than the photos can show. The home is meticulously maintained clean, and equipped for relaxation in every way; from rocking chairs on the screened-in porch, a room upstairs where you can have time to yourself to read or just look out at the sky, to beach toys for anyone who wants to play in the sand, yards away from the front door. At the same time, if you are seeking something more active, you can rent bicycles or take up surfing, as I did. I would recommend this property both for visiting with children or only adults. There are two playgrounds close by. The owners have maintained the old charm of the house while updating it with new appliances, bathrooms, and heating/cooling. If you like to cook, as I do, the kitchen is more well outfitted than any other rental I've encountered by far. During our stay, we enjoyed buying fresh shrimp and oysters from a seafood shop nearby. The top floor has a covered porch with a beautiful view of the ocean with room for evening cocktails or afternoon reading. The front of the house has a spacious wraparound screened-in porch with a view of tropical plants and golden sunlight in the morning. The owners were responsive and friendly. The listing reflects what you'll find when you arrive. If I can lend any more currency to my review, I am the Art Director at Travel + Leisure magazine so I spend my days looking at, and evaluating, properties around the world. All in all I highly recommend this property.
