About Alicia Kinard

Chastain's Front Beach Cottages has been on Folly Beach since the 1940's. Lunnette Kinard is affectionately known as "Miss Folly Beach" and was the official beauty pageant winner as well as runner up in the state.

Alicia Kinard purchased this house in 1978

Why Alicia Kinard chose Charleston Area

Lunnette built this home on the front beach in 1980. It is a darling front beach home with master bedroom loft. It has a great view of the pier and is a six block walk to center street. You are close enough to walk but don't have all the traffic of center street area.

What makes this house unique

Sunrise views, Pier to the right, Short walk to center street (6 blocks). Pet Friendly with Gates at the top of the decks and fenced yard with grill.

Nice Spot

Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay, and would love to come back and do it again. It was a comfortable cottage and met our needs very well.

Great place for family! If you want a good clean place to stay that you can relax and not worry and relax this is the place. Bring the whole family pet friendly. Should you have a problem the owner is right the street and will do their best to fix it. My family has been staying with them the last 5 years and have no intentions of changing.

This house seriously needs maintenance and a touch a freshness. Overall, amenities are old and from another era (overall). BBQ was useless, DVD player, radio, one entrance door were not in working order. The patio set was in decrepit state. This is a small house and we knew it. The cleanliness on arrival was very decent. There is limited ocean sight on one side due to neighboring gigantic house proximity. The main hindering factor in this beautiful little beachfront town is the lack of decent smaller estate for normal families of 4-6 people.

loved the stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there YEARS ago (had to put in wrong date,sorry)...a week in May....I would guess around 2006? Rented it from Fred Holland Realty at the time......BEST BEACH VACA EVER!!!!!!!! The house didn't even have grill/outside furniture at the time and we still ENJOYED it! As for the privacy fence....LOVED it too! Kept our mini-doxie safe....we got into boating since and now trying to sell boat....can't believe we found the same cottage and updated to boot....can't wait to go back...checked the date but unavailable...will try again earlier for next year... God willing! Thank You for keeping this place for rent....could kick ourselves for not buying it way back then when it was for sale! Hubby preferred boat but now he's sorry ;)......

Thanks for the memories!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful beach cottage. It was perfect for our family! We enjoyed every minute we were there. The quaint little town of Folly charmed us all! We are already talking about the next time we come down! I have to say we were all a little down in the dumps when it was time to go. My kids refer to it as the "Folly Beach Blues." We will cherish every memory made down there!

Best Beach Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I am still crying because I am not at this awesome beach cottage now! The location was the best on Folly, the house was perfect for our needs, pet friendly and fenced for our dogs safety. The views from the windows and deck were breathtaking, we could not keep our eyes off the beach and ocean. The most relaxing vacation EVER! Thank you Lunnette Kinard and Chastains Cottages for being so gracious about reminding me of our check-out time, I was really confused, thought we had the cottage one more day, I must apologize again for the inconvenience I caused, and thank you for your kindness. I would love to come back and spend maybe two weeks. I would recommend this property to all.
