About Marc Gustafson

We are three families from Charlotte and Chicago. We love our condo in Folly Beach. We have a total of 8 children - 3 girls and 5 boys - and all of them love Turtle Bay 8. We know you will too!

Marc Gustafson purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Marc Gustafson chose Charleston Area

This place is perfect for just about any situation. It has a great master upstairs, but a second bedroom with a queen bed downstairs that can serve as a second master for another family or grandparents. Kids love the bunk beds upstairs. And even as close as the beach is, just a 5-10 minute walk, we end up spending a lot of time at the pool that is just steps from our front door.

What makes this townhome unique

Folly Beach living. There's not much more you can say than that. Lost Dog Cafe, the Pier, Taco Boy, the Washout. These places are all institutions. There really is no place like Folly Beach and this is our own little slice of Heaven on Folly Beach.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful and I couldn't have asked for a better location! It gave us wonderful privacy from the beach traffic, but was close enough to everything to walk. I don't think we used the car to get around the island all week. The pool and dock were both great, and the people in the neighborhood were so friendly!

The house provided everything we needed and was spacious enough for the whole family, including the pets! It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen was awesome for cooking dinners, and there was plenty of dinner seating for everyone.

I'd highly recommend this house for its open floor plan, super comfortable beds, great decks, and awesome amenities. Folly Beach is awesome too--I suggest all of the restaurants, especially Taco Boy and Snapper Jack's!

First family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our first vacation at Folly Beach and the first beach vacation with our two small (2 and 4 years old) boys. We really enjoyed our time there and are looking forward to coming back. The location of the house is great, about a 10 minute walk to the beach, plenty of parking at the house, well stocked kitchen and there was a little wagon in the garage for us to use and also some toys and beach chairs.

Although the house didn't lack anything we needed (except for a wine bottle opener) and provided plenty of space for everyone we would have been happier if it had been cleaner. The rug in the living room is stained and so is the carpet in the bedrooms and upstairs hallway. It just didn't make us feel very comfortable walking on the carpet and having our kids play there. The queen and king bed fitted sheets didn't fit well on the matrass and kept coming undone. I didn't mind putting the sheets on the bed myself but I wasn't crazy about how stained the pillows looked.

The cabinet doors in kitchen and bathrooms could use a good scrubbing and the light switch plates showed finger prints.

We had some other minor issues (garage door opener not functioning properly, smoke alarm in master needed a new battery, filter in fridge needed to be replaced) that we reported to the agency upon our departure and hope that those issues will be fixed soon.

Very Dirty and a Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

We were excited for our stay at Folly Beach and this listing looked like it would be perfect for our needs. Upon entering the unit, things seemed ok, but it didn't take long to see how very dirty the house was. The baseboards, floors, doors, windowsills, etc, were all covered in dirt and dust. It was so bad I didn't even want to use the hook on the back of the door for my bath towel. The house needs a top to bottom cleaning. Also, we arrived a little late so rather than be able to just relax after our long day, we were greeted with a dishwasher full of dishes (clean) from the previous tenant, beds that had to be made up and no toilet paper--that isn't provided?? The beds were very soft and uncomfortable and the mattress pads were stained and gross. In addition to that, the listing clearly states that there is a queen size bed in the downstairs bedroom and it is only a double. Not what we had signed up for. I was very careful to select a property that had at least a queen size bed and we didn't get it. The other disappointment was communication with the rental company. I couldn't get into the garage and placed a call to their office to find out how to get in so we could park our cars. I never did get a return call. Fortunately I found the remote control so we were able to get in but the fact that they couldn't even return the call doesn't speak well for them. This house could be okay if they get it cleaned up and replace the beds and bedding. We don't need fancy but clean is mandatory. Also, for the price that we are paying, a made up bed and an empty dishwasher isn't too much to ask. And at least starter rolls of toilet paper should come with the house. The cleaning crew should be able to do that much. I was quite surprised to have these issues as there were so many good reviews. However, now that I go back and look at dates, they are all old. Things have obviously deteriorated.

Owner's Response: The family-owners of Turtle Bay 8 are sorry to hear about your experience at our condo. I was just there in January with my family and dusted many of the baseboards, lights, ceiling fans and window sills, and another one of the owners was there for spring break with his family, so we are a little surprised to hear about these issues. I hate that you did not call or email me so that I could have tried to address some of your concerns. There definitely should have been toilet paper for you to start your stay. I am sorry about that. I will follow up with Fred Holland on this issue and make sure it is corrected. I am also sorry that they weren't more responsive to your call about the garage door opener, but it sounds like you were able to find it on the kitchen counter. I will also follow up on the dishes in the dishwasher. I may be mistaken, but like many of the rentals we stay in, it is Fred Holland's policy is to have renters run the dishwasher before they leave to ensure they are cleaned and not thrown back into the cupboards. The linens on the beds is a Fred Holland policy. They have decided, for good or for bad, that rather than have people complain that linens are not clean that they leave them on the beds, cleaned and wrapped. I understand this can be a little annoying, especially on such a short-term rental, but at least renters have the comfort of knowing all of the linens are newly cleaned. I also frequently sleep in that downstairs bedroom and am surprised to learn that it is not a queen. It seems to be the same size as our bed at home, so I had someone from Fred Holland double-check. It is a queen sized mattress according to the label. As for the comfort of the mattresses, I am also surprised to hear they are not comfortable as many of our reviews specifically mention how comfortable the beds are. I guess that can be a personal preference. The three families that own this condo take great pride in providing a good experience for not just our families, but for all of our guests. I am sorry it did not live up to your expectations.

My husband and I had a great time in this super cute, comfy condo! The weather was rainy all weekend so we were super greatful for a nice, clean, comfy condo to hang out in. The area is very nice and very convenient to food, night life and the beach. We look forward to returning to this condo again!

Folly Beach
Car: recommended

Just 15 minutes from Downtown Charleston, Folly Beach is the perfect location. Charleston natives have been coming to Folly Beach for its beautiful wide beach, great restaurants and fun shopping. Folly Beach is bordered by the Folly River and the Atlantic Ocean. At one end is a state park, great for fishing and bird watching. At the other end is the Washout, perfect for learning to surf or bodyboarding, and Morris Island lighthouse. In the center of the Island is Center Street lined by restaurants, bars and local shops (no chains). At the end of Center Street is a great pier with a restaurant and arcade. Most people lay out on the beach near the pier and play bocce or stick ball on the soft sand. The island is great for riding bikes. For boaters, the Folly River has easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway, Charleston Harbor, Kiawah Island and Morris Island. Folly Beach is close to the Charleston Aquarium, Fort Sumter and the shopping and restaurants of King Street.

Other Activities: Shopping, crabbing, boating, sea kayaking, shelling.
