Magical Mystical Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love Folly Beach and wanted to seek out a rental as cool as the beach town itself. The Folly Treehouse is a perfect fit for anyone wishing to truly escape and find something different. There is plenty of space and it is extremely comfortable and it makes you feel as though you are hiding away in your own cabin. Dave is a local legend and one hell of a cool guy, and he genuinely cares about the experiences of his guests. We had a great time in both Folly and Charleston (you can Uber in and out if you enjoy cocktails as we do), and were so glad we chose the treehouse. The only regrets we had were that we couldn't stay longer and that our friends at home couldn't see the place, because they would have loved it. It is truly the perfect hideaway in the perfect place. We will be back!

The tree house is a cute out doorsy alternative to typical rental. I wish the kitchen was on the same level as the main bedroom. Enjoyed our stay. The host, David, was helpful and courteous.

Mother/daughter getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This treehouse could not have been more perfect. Beautiful and pristine, loved and decorated by the owner/host and builder Dan! He is a true local who just happens to be around the corner to welcome you and make sure you have all you need. His hospitality and showing us around the property and all its amenities helped my daughter and I get settled and head to the beach immediately! There are GOOD working bikes, boards, games wifi etc on top of all this...the pics are beautiful but don't do justice to the vaulted ceiling and wrought iron staircase work. 3 decks to relax on, a heavenly king bed and loft (for the teens) gave us some of the best sleep in months. Linens are top of line as are furnishings and kitchenware. 2 full baths AND a private outdoor shower!?! Prime beach/marsh/Center St location...we will be back here for certain!!!

Amazing, Quirky, Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just had the best vacation ever and a big part of that was our stay at The Tree House. It's nestled into and built right around the trees. Going up the exterior stairs takes you into the main floor. With super high ceilings and made entirely of beautiful reclaimed wood, the large windows and bring lots of light an air into the space. The bathroom and shower have the basic necessities and are serviceably functional.

A set of quirky stairs takes you to the second floor. It has a lower ceiling hight, but provides a tiny, but well stocked with necessary implements, kitchen and refrigerator. We only cooked in one night, but we had the capacity to cook in and would probably do so on another vacation. There was also a sitting, eating and sleeping area, along with another half bath.

But the absolute best part of the property is the rooftop deck. You can't be afraid of heights or ladders to enjoy the view, but it's entirely worth it! You can view sunset through the branches of the treetop canopy, but we soon discovered the best view. One of the live oaks has the nest of a Blue Jay. Momma was sitting on her eggs and we got to watch Pappa swoop in to feed her. She seemed to only leave the nest for very short periods of time.

The bird sounds would go in waves, especially around sunset (when we were usually up there). Sometimes the calls would be loud and seemingly all around us. Then there would be a lull before another burst of furious activity by the birds. We also saw a hunting Red Tailed Hawk and numerous other birds.

We had a great time at the house. It was a very relaxing vacation and we were sorry to leave.

We would definitely rent again. Thanks, David!

Perfect spot for our weekend getaway. Quick walk to the beach and quick drive into Charleston. The tree house has a lot of personality. Our host David was friendly and accessible. We would recommend and definitely visit again.

Stay at the Treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews here already say it all....Dave is an excellent host (right there if you need him, but not "in the way" if you don't) and the Treehouse is AWESOME! The treehouse is, to us, the quintessential surfers cottage: kinda funky, comfortable, convenient to town and the beach, and a place you can't wait to return to! Thanks Dave.....We can't wait for our next visit!
