Why Carol L Wagner chose Charleston Area

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.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean and lovely. It has everything you might need, is super close to the beach access, and has a nice view too. The beds are comfy and the owner provides sheets and towels. This is a great benefit as they can take a lot of space. Also, there are beach chairs, umbrellas and toys. The washer and dryer is huge, and detergent is also provided. If you lack anything, just ask the owner as she makes her cell and email readily available. Even the bugs are taken care of ahead of time.

The house is about 1 mile from the center of town, so you can walk if you want. It is a half mile from the county park also if you want a guarded beach. The drive to Charleston is approximately 22 minutes. Folly Beach itself is tourist friendly. There are random playgrounds and water filling stations around town. And the beach is huge! What more can you want? Vacation paradise!

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family vacation with 5 adults and 2 children. The property was spacious, beautifully decorated and even nicer than the photos. It is about 1 mile from the main road where most restaurants are located. Everything you need for a wonderful beach vacation was provided - beach toys, umbrellas, body boards, towels, grill, Apple TV when you need a break from the sun. Ample parking space was provided. We had a few questions and the owner was easily accessible and helpful. Though this is considered "second-row" home, there was an ocean view from both decks. It is a short walk to the beach and this was not an issue. I loved the outdoor shower!

Downtown Charleston with its rich history and numerous attractions is about a 25 minute drive. We would recommend the carriage rides, aquarium, Charleston City Market and a boat ride on Charleston harbor. At Folly Beach we especially liked Snapper Jack's where there was live music daily on the roof top and great happy hour specials. Loggerhead's and the Crab Shack restaurant are also worth a visit. We would definitely recommend this property. A great way to enjoy a beach vacation with proximity to historic Charleston.

Even better than we anticipated. Felt like beachfront...great household amenities...great layout

  • 5 of 5

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?

Yes. One nice item was a number of 'beach toys' available. Another was the GREAT kitchen utensils. Very rare in a rental.

Was the property clean and well-maintained ?

Yes. The owner was there when we arrived doing her own check.

Did the owner provide good customer service ?

Yes, prior to our rental week. She also left her number with us, but we had no need to call her during our stay.

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ?

Absolutely.

What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ?

We are long-time Folly people, so we have our favorites: Crab Shack for seafood, Lost Dog Café and Black Magic for breakfast, Rita's for burgers, Woody's for pizza (but expect a long wait), Taco Boy for anytime (be sure to have the frozen screwdriver with a Gran Marnier floater). Rent a bike for the week so you can ride the island.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable house. The views from covered decks are wonderful. A clever latch on the gate to the deck stairs means that the toddlers can scamper around safely while the adults relax. The master bedroom has a view of the ocean. The sofa bed in the upstairs sitting room makes a comfortable bed for other guests that wish to wake to an ocean view. As mentioned by other reviewers this house is well equipped. If you are flying into Charleston, all you need are the items you can fit into a carry on. We just drove in from Columbia but it was very nice knowing that we didn't have to bring bulky beach towels and chairs. The kitchen has everything a cook needs and the essential paper products are already there. A vacation here is simply a time to relax and .

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as advertised, very clean and in a great location. Not directly on the beach, but beach access was only a short walk away and you did have views of the ocean from the house decks. Plus the awesome hammock on the upper deck! Folly is a great beach and the house is located on a quiet stretch with less traffic. Good nearby places to eat and to purchase local seafood. We had a wonderful stay (wish the weather was warmer) and hope to return one day.

Folly Beach is a great get-away place with fantastic swimming, sailing, kayaking, and incredible sunsets that offers excellent dining right on the island with unlimited fun in downtown Charleston just 10 miles away. There's shopping right on Center Street and a full supermarket/shopping plaza just over the bridge off Folly.
