We spent a long weekend at Vanessa's duplex and could not have been any happier. The building is on a large, very private lot with excellent space underneath the building - hammocks, picnic tables, hanging lanterns, etc. Once inside, the unit is very clean, nicely decorated and well stocked. We ate several meals "in" and cooked without any problems. The beds are comfortable with very nice linens and comforters. Both bathrooms were very clean and supplied. The location is ideal - away from any noise from tourists, yet only ONE SHORT BLOCK to the beach - you can just see the ocean from the front porch and the bedroom window. It was so easy to walk our 6 month old puppy (50 pound labradoodle) on the beach several times a day. Vanessa was available to help us with the Direct TV and she got it working asap. She is a great host, really wanted us to be happy and comfortable. The neighborhood is wonderful for walking, the beach is clean and nice, highly recommend checking out Berts Red & White, Lost Dog Cafe, and Loggerheads Restaurant - all within walking distance! Also, if you have a dog, stop by the James Island County Park Dog Park on your way out of town - wow! We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Folly Beach!
