Why Carol L Wagner chose Folly Beach

We love the view of the ocean from the upper deck. The house is impeccably built by a local builder with careful details throughout the house. We also enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Folly. It has the open feel of a beach community without the constraints that sometimes occur in more recent planned communities. There are great restaurants right on the Island and downtown Charleston is only a 20 minute drive away.

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach walkover--just two houses down. Great views of the ocean. Within easy walking distance (0.9 miles) to Center Street on Folly Beach.

everything was SUPER

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, well maintained and very complete (plenty of towels, linens, glasses, plates and silverware, as well as good quality appliances - typically not the case in a rental). The location is fantastic and the owners are super sweet and incredibly helpful. When we arrived there was a glitch with the internet, and the owners went out of their way to fix it - and in addition treated us to some great southern hospitality. If our travel plans bring us to the Charleston area again, we will definitely rent this house again.

Hidden Treasure is a jewel!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of mom, dad, teenage daughter, and grandma had an excellent and memorable stay in this comfortable, cozy beach house. We visited over Christmas and we're delighted with a well appointed kitchen, super clean house, and gorgeous view from the upper deck. The owner welcomed us by leaving a small decorated and lit Christmas tree in the living room. We hosted Christmas dinner for our relatives, who live in Charleston. I had everything I needed to make a lovely holiday meal. We've rented a lot of places and this was the best appointed kitchen we've had. The owner was very quick to answer any questions and anticipated our need for a late check-out. My 82 year-old mother-in-law was so grateful for that. (One note: there are a lot of stairs. My m-in-law took them slow and managed fine.) The beach is right across the street. Public access is less than 5 minutes walk. One of the things that one cannot see through the photos is that the positive energy and beach cozy feel. All four of us give Hidden Treasure a double thumbs up!

Amazing Week at Incredible Home

  • 5 of 5

The Hidden Treasure was awesome and Carole was great! Incredibly clean and extremely well appointed and stocked home. Everything we needed for the week was included. 2nd row, but incredible breezes and beach views from 2nd and 3rd story balconies (which are huge). House is one of the few that sits back off the road which gave it an extra feeling of privacy. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Great floor plan and location!

  • 5 of 5

Such a well-stocked and lovely home. We had 3 teenagers and 2 adults during our trip, and everyone had plenty of space. The floor plan is perfect. We also loved being so close to beach access. We rented bikes to make it easy to get into town for restaurants and shopping.

Great location, tons of extras, clean, great week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with two families, including small children, at this home. The location is only 2 houses down from the beach access. Makes for a very easy haul when you're toting small kids and all of their beach toys. The house had beach chairs and beach games for us to use as well. Clean home, exactly as described. The kitchen had tons of cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc. The view from the top balcony is excellent.

The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. We had a completely stress-free week! Would stay here again.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week at this beautiful vacation home with our daughter and her family. Plenty of room for all. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals in, and house was close to fun restaurants if we wanted to eat out. The house is 2nd tier, but very easy access to an awesome beach. The owners were super easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. Folly Beach and Charleston have so much to do and the home is a great place to stay.
