A recent renter just sent me this email with useful restaurant info for future guests. So, I am pasting it here:
I just wanted to share some of our experiences with you. we really enjoyed our stay & your home is lovely, better than we had anticipated. it was too cold to be able to enjoy the beach, but we did make our way around the area quite a bit. just an fyi......we ate at Rita's...fabulous hamburgers, well worth the $10 pricetag....went to Folly Beach Crab Shack....nice outside enclosed patio, food was really good too, and not overly pricey....we ended up at the Sandbar one evening our of desperation....yeah, not the greatest....the food was good, but service was lacking.....we never got our coleslaw which was supposed to be part of the meal, and at 7:30 they were out of the soup....we were one of 3 tables occupied....leads me to wonder when that soup was made (yesterday, perhaps???) we ordered carryout from Planet Follywood,....it was wonderful. I ordered a side of breaded mushrooms that were out of this world....we had their wings, eh, not the best but the terriyaki shrimp pita was wonderful.
This is the 4th vacation I have booked through VRBO and up until now I have been very pleased. This rental was not what I expected. On day 1 we noticed that the bottoms of our feet were black from floor grime. My mother was so unsettled by this early sign of uncleanliness that she had a difficult time relaxing and feeling comfortable for the duration. The blender is cheap and leaked terribly. We only used it on the night 1 because it made a mess. The white throw pillow on the upstairs bed is covered in a large liquid brown mystery stain. The dishes are all mis-matched and many are plastic. Some of them were partly melted and warped but were still in the cupboards for use. The downstairs bedroom wall has an unsightly area over 2 feet long of exposed drywall where the paint/wallpaper has been ripped off. The television in the smaller upstairs bedroom did not work and was unplugged when we got there. The one amenity that is a MUST for me while on vacation is a jetted tub. I search out this amenity when booking and often times pay more for this luxury. I was heartbroken on this stay when I got in the tub only to find that the jets were broken. The notified the owner of the broken tv & tub but no attempt was made at repair. The owner told me to check the fuse box for a short then never followed up with a real solution. The property listing boasts extra amenities such as condiments, coffee, starter tp, soap etc... but what it does not say is that the owner will make you to replace these items before leaving. I found this to be rather off-putting and tasteless. If one boasts about special amenities then one should provide them. Telling renters to restock items that were used to the owner's benefit as a selling point is tawdry at best. The owner also required that all linens and towels be washed AND dried THEN moved to the bedrooms before checking out. Because there were multiple loads and the wash/dry cycles were 1 hour each, this requirement caused us to checkout 3 hours later than we would have preferred, making for a very long day and return trip home. The owner holds the security deposit hostage to make sure all extra demands (not required by my previous stay owners) are met. After waiting 2 weeks I had to remind the owner to refund my security deposit. Pro: This rental earned its 2nd star because the pool and dock do indeed have a beautiful view. Needless to say, I will not be booking with this owner again.
Overall great experience at Turtle Bay and great location!...Convenient walk to the beach and restaurants on Folly, and a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Charleston. The Lost Dog cafe was great for breakfast, just a short walk away. The condo was well maintained, spacious, and comfortable - we had a great week enjoying different activities in the Charleston area, and would highly recommend this villa! Thank you.
We enjoyed our week on Folly greatly. This rental was clean, comfortable, and had ample space for our family including my husband and I as well as our infant and toddler, and the grand parents. The garage was great for storing our beach gear amd the additional items provided were very useful. We rented a golf cart and easily accessed the beach from 3rd Street. We look forward to renting this property again soon.
My husband and I met our children and one grandchild at this Turtle Bay condo for a week of family time. The condo was roomy, clean, and well appointed. It was a pleasant walk to the beach and we enjoyed the pool each afternoon. We made most of our meals at the condo and I found the kitchen very adequate for vacation meals. We went into Charleston a couple of days and it is an easy drive. Folly Beach is a great family beach. We had a great time and look forward to visiting again.
Great location and quiet. Our family of 5 stayed here in Jine 2106. Loved every minute in Folly and it's a short drive to Historic Charleston. Condo was clean and perfect for us. Not in a super busy neighborhood yet still a short walk to everything!
My wife and I rented this very nice three bedroom condo on Folly for three months this winter.
The location at Turtle Bay was just Ideal for us, as it is close enough to walk to everything: beach, main st. restaurants, post office, library etc, and a great spot to walk the beautiful neighborhoods of Folly, and take in the eclectic assortment of homes. One evening just a couple of blocks away, a group of eight deer climbed out of the marsh and walked right in front of us across the road. The condo is great for guests, as all three bedrooms have full bathrooms. The dock is a great place to sit and watch the sunset, and there is a small pool
Golf: Many top golf courses nearby.
