Guestbook comments from the owner

Janet,

We enjoyed the southern hospitality from you and all we met. It was a long haul but worth every minute. Escaping the 12 degree weather in Michigan was the best. Loved the Fat Hen Restaurant on John's Island. We also found the lighthouse at the end of Folly delightful with few people, good shells, and a great picnic spot. The Flamingo Suite is charming, love the decor and colors. So quiet and relaxing.

Good luck to you and blessings,

Bob and Joan Kalamazoo, Michigan

Great Location/Unfriendly Staff

  • 1 of 5

I rented the Folly Flamingo for a relaxing weekend with a few of my girlfriends to celebrate my friend getting married. There were 5 of us total and we let Janet know from the time we booked that there would be 5. I myself am 28 yrs old and the youngest is 24. From the time we arrived we were treated like we were a bunch of teenagers who were there to throw a party. Janet "hovered" over our every move the entire time making it more than difficult to relax. We also received a knock on our door and a lecture on the rules from Janet about a towel used on the beach that was her property however the towel belonged to the couple renting beside us, it was their towel and she later mentioned it wasn't even hers. I was excited for a relaxing weekend but instead spent my time walking on eggshells to please the owner.

Full of character, perfect Folly location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Janet was great to deal with, easy to find, and best of all we parked the car for 4 days and never drove. 1.5 blocks to main street restaurants and shops, 1.5 blocks to beach wi easy access point like it was made for us. The home was fun and had plenty of room for 4 of us (adults). Water pressure was a little light in the indoor shower, but I quickly realized the outside shower was AWESOME, privacy and great pressure right outside the door! (Great showering experience). All appliances and TV worked and was clean and ready, would definitely stay here again. Great experience.... thank you!

Beautiful Suite in Prime Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a nice three day weekend. The suite is prettier than you can even tell in the pictures and very well equipped. You couldn't ask for a nicer location. Just moments from the beach and hidden behind a little gate. It's like the secret garden! We actually got a quick tour of each property at the Folly Flamingo and each is beautiful- you can't go wrong! This location is within walking distance to all the cute little restaurants and shops. Janet was very nice and accommodating. Thanks for having us! Can't wait to be back. We highly recommend this place. :)

Loved our visit to Folly Flamingo!

  • 5 of 5

The Flamingo suite was the perfect size for our family of 4. It was very spacious, and had everything we needed. The location is great - close to downtown and the beach. The suite was very clean, and Janet was wonderful. We will definitely keep Folly Flamingo in mind for any future visits to Folly Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jan, I am glad we were able to accommodate you. We had a late cancellation yet was able to fill the week with some new visitors to the Flamingo Suite. So happy you and your family enjoyed your visit. I hope you were able to see the Caribbean colored water we experienced from the beach renourishment. It made Folly feel very tropical. Best Wishes, Janet

A charming, hidden gem so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and we could not have asked for a more perfect place for a beach getaway. We were steps away from the beach, and we could hear the waves crashing from our room inside. Once you step inside the gate on the property you are totally secluded and surrounded by a fantastic garden with many flamingos! This place has everything--a large deck to sit on and enjoy, outdoor shower, is steps to the beach, garden, and is close to the many shops and restaurants and great 24 hour locally run grocery store. The place was so clean and cozy. The owner was so gracious and accommodating to our last minute booking too. This was our most memorable beach stay and plan on returning soon.

Owner's Response: Hello Heather, So glad we could book your stay in the Sandpiper Suite. It is small and cozy but such a sweet space with its large window views of the courtyard, the warmth of the bead board walls and cathedral ceilings, and the slate floor. It makes a great extra bedroom for the Flamingo Suite so two couples can have complete privacy and still enjoy each others company sharing the kitchen, great room, baths, and covered deck. Great reviews and great guests make us happy. Hope to see you again soon. Thank You, Janet Crouch Owner / Manager

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your home to us. It was very quaint,clean,up to date and a breath of fresh air!! The garden was gorgeous and loved the outdoor shower. Being able to walk to the beach hassle free was great. Parking was a plus. My whole family LOVED it and we all were home sick for your home when we left. Can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Hello Lori, Thank you so much and happy you enjoyed the house, courtyard, and location. I think it is a great place for families, extended families, and friends to rent all three areas. It is nice to be together and still have your pocket of privacy if your stay is several days or a week long. Grand parents love being with kids all day and relaxing on their own in the afternoon in the Sunburst Suite. A family of five can enjoy the Flamingo Suite, and a single person or couple will enjoy the serenity of the Sandpiper Suite that offers an overflow if six or seven accommodate the Flamingo Suite. Just an example of the flexibility of the house. It is an easy walk to most business, beach, and the river side of the island. Thank you again and hope to have you back soon. I, also, have a lake house in Saluda, North Carolina should you ever want to raft the Green River, experience the Gorge Zipline, or visit Asheville. We call the house on Lake Hosea that sleeps four CAMP RAM'S HEAD. (saluda.com town website) Warm Regards, Janet Crouch
