Guestbook comments from the manager

If you want to wake up to the beach right outside your door...this is the home for you. No long boardwalks to navigate. This home has a sundeck that makes you feel as if you are sitting on the beach, with 2 loungers, a picnic table, small 2 person bistro and adirondack chairs. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun rise and relax with the gentle morning breeze. This house is clean and very comfortable. Great open floor plan. Managers are easy to work with and always accessible.

Great family stay ay 1569

  • 5 of 5

This was our 10th year at Folly and the second time we have enjoyed staying in this cute house. It is a great location - 4 houses past the Washout - with an open lot on one side. We always bring our boat and although the driveway is short, it was easy to park two trucks and a 20' boat on a trailer and still leave the area right under the house, which is paved and very clean, open for the kids to play safely on scooters and wagons. The house doesn't have a screened porch but has a spacious deck that gets the ocean breeze. We set up a cabana on the deck for some extra shade and spent a lot of time there when we wanted a break from the sand. The hose and shower right outside the door into the house kept everything sand free for the 2 weeks we were there. There has been an impressive amount of beach erosion in the past couple of years but there is a wide expanse of beach at low tide and a nice strip of beach at high tide, unlike some of the homes right now that end up with no beach at all. We hate the erosion problem is occuring but actually loved the ocean being steps from our door.

The house itself was perfect for our family of 5. The open living area has comfortable couches and arm chairs and a flat screen as well as a connecting eating area. There are windows all the way across the front.

The kitchen is open and has a center bar and decent appliances and plenty of supplies. We found all the beds to be comfortable and simply but tastefully decorated. The AC is one of the best we have experienced at Folly and easily keeps up with summer heat.

We didn't have any problems so we only met Mike as we were packing up to leave and it's obvious he and Diane would be available and responsive to any requests or concerns.

We'll be back!

just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for a week in mid June. The home was perfect for our family of 4. Location was great with the beach right off the deck. Our teenager and jr high aged children never wanted to leave the water/beach area. The house was nicely stocked and had everything we needed. Exactly as described in the listing. The house is just far enough away from downtown to escape the business but close enough when we wanted to be there. This was our second time renting in Folly and by far our best experience yet. Michael and Dianne were wonderful to deal with. Very prompt in responding with any questions we had. We will be back!!

Charming, small, restful

  • 5 of 5

Sweet property. Loved the peaceful end of folly beach. Clean and perfect for our family.

Nice for our elderly grandparents as the stairs are less than most other rental options on Folly and all of the bedrooms are on one floor.

Great place to stay when we visit our daughter. We hope to book again in the near future!

Perfect spot on Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Folly Beach and we feel like we could not have made a better choice in a place to stay. This house is right on the beach - it's perched on the dunes with a 180 degree view of the ocean, and it's located on a less populated section of the island. There are fancier houses but this house was clean, bright, and comfortable and for the price and location It was outstanding.

CUTE LITTLE BEACH COTTAGE...AWESOME LOCATION...PERFECT FOR A FAMILY OF 5 and MORE! WE LOVED IT! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this little beach cottage from March 24th-27th. It doesn't look like much as you drive up to it, but once you get inside, your mind is put at ease. The house is small, but doesn't feel like it. It is very clean and comfortable. The furniture is placed perfectly to maximize the use of space. The view...WOW! The entire back of the house is all windows, and did I mention that the house sits right on the beach? FANTASTIC! You can watch the kids play from inside the house or on the deck. The house is located about 1.5 miles from Center Street which my husband and 3 boys walked to and back...nice relaxing walk on the beach. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal and has a charcoal grill under the house. We had a little problem with the washer, but Dianne and Michael responded within an hour and had a maintenance man fix it pronto. They are GREAT managers! Thank you so much...you guys are FABULOUS! When we come back to Folly Beach, we will DEFINITELY stay here again.
