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.”

Folly Breeze-It Doesn't Get Any Better

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.

Best Vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year my family and I have come to Folly Breeze. This will most certainly be an annual tradition. The house is in immaculate condition and the perfect size for our family. My favorite part of the house is the screened in wrap-around porch. We spent all of our evenings sipping wine and all of of mornings sipping coffee out there. The screened in porch was a perfect place for my 2 year old son, as he could run around and play with his toys and we didn't have to worry about him getting hurt. I highly recommend this house for your stay at Folly Beach.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Within an hour of arriving to this beautiful home, my shoulders dropped as the stress I was carrying melted away. The home is beautiful and comfortable. Our family of 4 stayed the week and extended family visited. My 6 and 3 yr old girls loved sleeping in the bunk beds and did not argue at all the entire week. They were to busy giggling! We had coffee and breakfast on the veranda every morning and snacks/drinks almost every afternoon. We walked, barefoot, across the road to the beach every day as the weather was perfect. The kitchen was fully stocked and perfect for home cooked meals. The beds were super comfortable and there was so much space! I actually cried as I locked the door the last time to come home. I'm so happy we found this house - so many happy memories were made during our time together. We hope to rent again!

Amazing weekend at Folly Breeze!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 10 girls stay at Folly Breeze for Memorial Day weekend. As the person in charge of picking the house, I was nervous of how it would be in person and if everyone would like it. The house was AMAZING and far exceeded my expectations! Everyone loved it! The living room and kitchen area are more spacious than they appear in pictures and there is plenty of room for a big group. The rooftop porch is so much fun and was great in the morning for coffee and at night for the cocktails. The beach access is directly across the street and couldn't be more convenient. We had such a great time and I hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about our house. We are pleased that you enjoyed it and that it met your needs for your girls' stay. Our goal was for our house to have all of the accommodations necessary for large group stays whether they be family gatherings, get-a-ways for friends, small corporate meetings or group vacations. It sounds like we met our goals for your group. Again, thank you for your wonderful review. Mary Lu

Folly Breeze was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Folly Breeze for a weekend in March, and while the weather was a little chilly, the house was perfect. It was a great get-away, large enough to accommodate our group and a great kitchen that served as the gathering area. Everyone was comfortable and had a wonderful time! The fact that it was right across the beach was incredibly convenient (despite the weather, we enjoyed walking down the coast), and we were still close enough to downtown Charleston to go for dinner/drinks. Folly Breeze was the perfect place for our vacation, and we will definitely be visiting again the future!
