Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Oceanfront Home on Folly Beach, SC
average rating of 4.92 based on 25 reviews

Excellent choice.

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Kitchen needs a pantry, and the mattress in the bedrooms need updating, but a lovely place overall. The property was clean and well-maintained overall, and all of the attractions are nearby while being out of the crowds. I recommend this house as a very good choice for a relaxing family vacation.

Owner's Response: There is a floor to ceiling pantry with bifold door connected to the island in the kitchen. It has five 12 inch deep shelves. The mattresses were replaced three years ago.

Great stay - definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (kids aged 6 and 2) had a fantastic stay! Eleanor was great to work with during the booking process and the house turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. The location is about a mile down from the main center of town, situated next to a public beach access lot. We were a bit concerned about the lot when we were looking at properties, but it turned out to be no big deal. While there was a steady stream of people in and out, trees and plants provided a fair amount of privacy - we never felt uncomfortable. The house itself is very cute - clean with a lot of character and charm. The only minor complaint about the layout would be that the master doesn't have a beach view, but it would have been too uncomfortably humid to sleep with the windows open anyway so we couldn't mark off for that.

We were a bit surprised to find that the fridge and pantry were completely empty. Nice because they were very clean, but other properties we've stayed in usually had some basics - condiments, salt/pepper, etc. No big deal, but good to know going in. That said, laundry supplies, dish soap, and hand and bar soaps were provided so it was nice to not have to worry about those. Outside there was a great beach umbrella, a number of beach chairs, an assortment of boogie boards and two big bins of sand toys for the kids. The deck was great - looked like it had been recently updated. So nice if you wanted to sit out in the sun, but not get into the sand. The outdoor hoses and showers were SO convenient. The hose on the deck was perfect for just spraying off your feet if you'd been walking on the beach, but the outdoor showers were fantastic for coming in after a day in the water - they really helped us keep the mess down in the house. The kids loved showering outside - they didn't want to use the one inside!

While we were there a water main broke in town and we were without water. Of course it was out of the owners' control, but they were kind enough to call their contact at the city to get us more information. It was only a minor inconvenience (thankfully most of it happened when we were out on the beach), but we felt well taken care of. We were also lucky enough to meet the owners on our stay - good people; genuinely concerned that we have a nice stay, and that we make it home safely.

We would definitely recommend this property - it was a big part of why we had a great family vacation!

The house is charming and very clean. We had 6 adults in our group and we were very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The ocean views from the house are wonderful and the beach is just steps away. The single shower would have been problematic if not for the the 2 outdoor showers. The starter supplies and kitchen towels were greatly appreciated. We had a wonderful vacation.

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We met the owner, Eleanor, upon arrival. She was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. She chatted with us about the area and gave suggestions on where to eat. House was in a perfect location for shell collecting, walking (about 1 mile from town), quiet for sleeping. House was so great that I want to move in permanently! Everything we needed was provided: towels, deck chairs (beautiful deck too), umbrella. House was in great shape. Saw dolphins swimming almost everyday from our patio. It was a perfect vacation spot. Thank you Eleanor.

Absolutely FLAWLESS!!!

  • 5 of 5

As an avid traveler to numerous bed and breakfast/vacation homes, this home by far exceeded my expectations! Pictures really can not describe the quaint cozy feel of this property. As soon as we walked through the door, I knew this was going to be our "spot" for years to come. It is put together and decorated to the finest detail and every part of the house was so clean! There was absolutely nothing we needed that wasn't already there - from cooking utensils to beach toys for the kids. And the view of the ocean looks like something out of a magazine! Kudos to the Ulmers for providing such a wonderful experience for my family and many others! We will definitely be coming back!!!!
