great comfy space close to everything

  • 5 of 5

we had a great time staying here, sofas are super comfortable and great for lounging around after a day at the beach. it is nice to have the grocery store right below us for grabbing some things quickly. it is a bit noisy at night with the restaurant next door having live music most nights. this is definitely not the most quiet place to stay, but great if you like being walking distance to town. overall a great stay with friends and the little ones!

Wonderful for my Bachelorette Weekend

  • 4 of 5

I booked these accommodations for a bachelorette weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to find an ABC package store tucked quietly below on the first floor. Additionally, next door was a cute little outdoor restaurant and bar which was fun. The house is literally on a street corner and when you look down the road you are directly at a beach access that has showers and it near the pier. Seriously - perfect. The house itself is exactly as pictured. There was a bottle of wine and some treats available for us to consume. The rooms was nicely decorated and even though we had 6 girls the shower was not an issue (there is an outdoor shower as well). Parking was limited for the apartment due to other rentals downstairs. If you rent the other side of this rental as well it share the secondary porch and there is a super cute farm table and benches for everyone to enjoy together. Beach chairs were included and available to us as well along with three beach towels. The only complaint I have is that the bedroom in the front of the rental is not that comfortable. I kind of felt like I was sleeping on the box spring. However, the bedroom that has the two bunk beds the king bed was HEAVENLY! Hopefully they will get more mattresses like this one. Basically - you should definitely book this place. It was great.

Great Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. Great location, so close to the beach. Loved the cute store below, with quick sandwich or dinner fixings. Loved eating dinner on the porch. And the place was very quiet considering. Would highly recommend.

Fabulous convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week. The apartment was conveniently located near the town center and beach. It was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated and contained everything you could possibly need. I highly recommend it.

Not a very good place to rent.

  • 2 of 5

Although this unit is cute, affordable, convenient to center street and the owners are nice people, our family did not have a very good trip. The idea of "wireless" satellite TV is great but the connection is bad and we were without use of TV's for the majority of our stay and there are no use instructions in the unit. VRBO and the info at the unit states there is a grill to use but there is not one. The downstairs tenants (who appear to be year round) were up until 3am playing loud music and slamming doors 3 of the nights of our stay. The unit could use a very deep cleaning (especially under the couches and beds). The owners should also check for some type of animal in the walls and ceiling in the Queen BR at the front of the unit.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy, We are disappointed to read this review, especially after spending significant time at the unit addressing the one issue brought to our attention (the TV), which after correcting we never heard of any issues afterward. We also wish you had brought to our attention the disturbances of other guests, as we would have addressed this. There is no way to know of an issue if it is not communicated to us. Same goes for the cryptic warning of checking for critters. I wish we had more info about this, but will no doubt do a general check after reading about it here. Side note: there is a communal grill downstairs on the cement patio - grills are prohibited on wood decks and porches in Folly Beach. I am sorry this was not made more clear for you; a simple inquiry could have remedied the confusion. Best to you.

Folly Beach, Charleston Area, South Carolina, USA (30 Seconds from the Beach/10 Minutes to Downtown Charleston.) - The unit is located right behind Bert's Market, which is the local 24 hour grocery store, so if you arrive and find you are missing something, odds are Bert's will have it, and you are only footsteps away. (We can also arrange to have your unit PRESTOCKED with groceries. Just mention it.) You are also only 1 block from Center St., the heart of Folly Beach's commercial district, with a great variety of shopping and delicious food. Don't forget to visit the pier!

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Basketball Court
