Great Little Paradise Near the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay, a suberb location. Within a short walking distance to the beach, which made it easy to make the early morning trip to the beach every morning to walk and watch the sunrises (great photo opportunities)and evening walks along the beach. The house is perferct for a couple or a family with young children. The deck all around the house offered a wonderful place to relax and to enjoy the scenery all around. Check out the dock out the back gate, offers a spectacular view of the river and of Morris Lighthouse, and if you just want a quiet place to read or relax there is a neat little bench at the end of the dock to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The house offers all the enmities of home, well maintained and clean. They offer bicycles to ride and all the beach accessories to use for time on the beach. Close to downtown for shopping and dining out, the pier (we recommend Locklears on the pier, great food) or a trip to Morris Lighthouse. Folly Beach is not a place to travel by car, there is not much parking available. Great place for walking and bike riding or just relaxing on the beach. Folly Beach is close to Charleston and Sullivans Island, if you want to do some sightseeing off the island. We recommend Folly Beach and Sunset in Paradise to our friends and anyone looking for a smaller house with a great location close to the beach. All I wanted to do was be able to take early morning walks on the beach and find great photo opportunities, so I can say my vacation was fulfilled.

This is a great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd sister trip to Sunset in Paradise. The house is perfect for us. The weather was fantastic and we got to see the lighting of the Morris Island Lighthouse from the back dock. It was magical. We're sending thoughts for safe-keeping to everyone during the hurricane! See you next year and thanks again!

Peaceful marsh views

  • 3 of 5

LOVED the back deck overlooking the marsh. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The ocean view is pretty obstructed by a large home across the street. The inside was in need of a little love--peeling paint in bathroom. Also, we had not one hand towel, but made do with kitchen towels.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent weekend getaway spot for 2. The house is not large, but with the spectacular marsh dock in the back yard and beach access practically across the street, you don't need much room inside anyway! We caught fresh crab for dinner one night and fresh shrimp the next. Lowcountry living at its best!

Great stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a great 3 night stay at Suzie's place in Folly. It was both of our first times visiting the neighborhood, and it exceeded our expectations - beach access a few steps away and great sunset views from the back porch. Even when there was a small air conditioning issue, Suzie and her husband were extremely responsive and got the issue resolved quickly. Thanks Suzie

Fantastic experience!! Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than expected. The area was fantastic with many many things to do from walking out on the pier on the marsh to gathering shells on the beach. We saw dolphins within 10 feet of us off our private deck. There were plenty of fabulous restaurants in which to dine. The Fat Hen was my favorite. Suzie responded to all emails in a very timely manner. This was perhaps my best vacation ever!! Highly recommend.
