Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
This home was just as described and pictured. Well appointed, spacious, cheerful, and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with nice dishes, flatware, pots and pans and appliances. There were beach towels and some beach gear as well. It had everything we needed for an awesome beach vacation (except, maybe, it could have been warmer in FB. But hey, it was mid-October!)
We were able to leave the car in the driveway and walk in minutes to everything...beach, shops, restaurants (Lost Dog Cafe and Taco Boy..yum!), even the post office and a Catholic church. A big chain grocery was 2.2 miles away.
It was 20 minutes drive to Charleston. There was way too much to see in one day in this beautiful city. We should have planned on at least a second day.
We have never been to this area before, but we will be back. We think this could be the place for our next family vacation.

We couldn't ask for a better house for our vacation on Folly Beach. Its very comfortable and has everything you need. It's just a short stroll from the beach, restaurants and nightlife.It is very clean and in great condition. The owner was very easy to work with, and provided great suggestions for our stay. We will definitely be coming back.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was a perfect getaway to explore Charleston. It was a 4 minute walk to the public beach (which was very nice) and about 10 minutes to the Folly Beach Pier. My mom walked my two young children (4 and 1) there every morning, so it was easily walkable.

The house was very well appointed and had plenty of space. Everything was modern and felt like home. We walked everywhere on Folly Beach (bars and restaurants are just down the street, but the street the house is on is very quiet). We went into Charleston every day (about a 20 minute drive) and really enjoyed exploring.

Our favorite activities included: walking tour of downtown, Patriot's Point, and driving to Wadmalaw Island (angel oak tree, Irvin House Vineyards, Tea Plantation). If you get the chance, check out some of the fantastic dining in the area (we loved F.I.G., HUSK, and S.N.O.B.). Fantastic beach house and a wonderful vacation!

Comfortable, quiet, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our kids' spring break, and had a wonderful stay -- this home is close to everything on Center St but is still in a quiet residential spot, and of course it isn't far from the beach (in Folly, you never really are too far from the beach!) The owner has a very thoughtful touch with furnishings and amenities, and you feel like you're staying in a good friend's home, not an anonymous rental. Great for a large family - lots of space to spread out in, everything you'll need for a relaxing week at the beach.

Fabulous Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at "On a Whim" in mid September, and couldn't have been more pleased! It has a wonderful "Home -away-from-home" feel and is in a perfect location, close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The house is well-appointed, offering every creature comfort anyone could want in a vacation home. There are even bicycles, and an outdoor shower, for beach excursions. This fabulous retreat is beautifully decorated, capturing that unique Charleston feel. Cooking was a breeze in the well-stocked kitchen, and sleeping was a dream on the mattresses that are better than the ones I have at home. I will definitely look forward to another memory-laden vacation , spent at "On a Whim"!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely property! We stayed at "On a Whim" for a long weekend. If you're interested in laid back beach vibe combined with the potential for upscale urban dining and shopping, this location is for you. We relaxed on the beautiful Folly beach in the afternoon then headed into historic Charleston (20 minute ride) to enjoy restaurant Week at some of the top rated restaurants in the nation. Of course, you don't even need to leave Folly Beach to eat out. From a funky coffee shop at the end of the block (chocolate croissants to die for!) to various restaurants along the main street, there is so much choice, all within walking distance.

To top it off, this property seems more like a home than a rental. The decorating is beautiful and the kitchen is stocked with those little extras you normally don't find in a rental. There's plenty of room for family members to curl up with a good book, to watch the big screen TV or to just sit outside, contemplating life from a rocking chair!

All in all, "On a Whim" provides the ultimate getaway. I can't wait to return!
