Overview

About the property

Folly Beach/Downstairs Unit/1 Bedroom/1 Bath/Sleeps 4/Pet Friendly/Fenced yard

Location is key and this rental is perfectly located to easily walk to all things Folly! Once you park your car there will be no need to get back in it, unless you are leaving the Island. Described as a 1 bedroom, this rental actually can sleep 4 with the addition of a quiet sleeping nook that hosts a full bed. Great for small families on a budget or couple's retreat! Pictures do not do this rental justice as it is much larger then it appears. Open, airy living area that comfortably seats 4 along with dining inside. Fully appointed kitchen with everything you need to stay in and prepare a meal. Comcast cable, flat screen TV in living room, additional TV in Queen bedroom. Covered Shaded porch outside with dining table and seating. Fenced in yard. Outdoor shower with hot/cold water. 1/2 block from Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Grocery and 2 blocks back from the beach. Beach Cart, 2 Beach Chairs provided. This rental is not a single family home but a downstairs, ground level apartment.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE DOWNSTAIRS GROUND LEVEL UNIT OF A TWO STORY HOME. While it is not a basement...it is on the first floor and you will hear some foot traffic above. The above space is lived in full time by a family of 4. The upstairs unit uses the back entrance and Tucked Away uses the front. Please also note that all parking out front is owned by the city of Folly Beach. We can not guarantee parking directly in front of the unit although there usually is ample space. The City of Folly Beach owns all easements. You are allowed to park anywhere on Folly as long as you are parallel to the flow of traffic, all four tires off the road, not blocking a driveway or fire hydrant.

WE ARE PET FRIENDLY, HOWEVER WE HAVE A LIMIT OF JUST TWO PETS. OUR PET FEE IS $50 PER PET. IF WANTING TO BRING YOUR PET, PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR ABOUT SIZE AND BREED BEFORE BOOKING. PLEASE ALSO KNOW YOUR PET AND THEIR ANXIETY LEVEL WHEN LEFT ALONE. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR PET IF IT BARKS OR WHINES INCESSANTLY WHEN LEFT UNATTENDED INSIDE OR OUT. WE ARE DOG OWNERS AND AS DOG OWNERS YOU KNOW YOUR DOGS PERSONALITY AND BEHAVIOR. DOGS BARKING TO ALERT IS ONE THING...SEPARATION ANXIETY IS ANOTHER. WE DO HAVE NEIGHBORS AND THIS IS AN APARTMENT WITHIN A HOME. EVEN IF PET IS CRATED...WE CAN NOT HAVE IT CONTINUOUSLY BARKING. IT'S NOT GOOD FOR YOUR PET AND IT'S NOT GOOD FOR OTHER GUESTS. WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP IN KEEPING THIS A PET FRIENDLY. RENTAL. IF YOU DO HAVE MULTIPLE PETS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING, WE MANAGE A WONDERFUL SINGLE FAMILY HOME WITH A HUGE FENCED IN BACK YARD THAT IS VERY PRIVATE AND WOULD OFFER A RELAXING RETREAT FOR DOGS AND OWNERS.

About Dianne Ray

Michael grew up in Charleston and always looked forward to family vacations spent on Folly. He went off to Clemson for his College years and there he was blessed in finding me, his wife Dianne:) Ever his dream to permanently live on Folly, he found the perfect home in 2007. With his 2 children and wife in tow, we descended upon the wonderful community of Folly Beach and count our blessings each and everyday! Michael grew up navigating the local, sometimes tricky waters and decided to get his Captain's license, so that he could share the beauty of the Lowcountry with others. Broker's license, Captain's license, Surfer and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Miguel is the man to answer any of your Folly Beach needs!

Dianne Ray purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Dianne Ray chose Charleston Area

We love this home as it is central to all the fun and excitement of Folly, but yet is Tucked back in the trees, shaded and secluded. It's sincerely one of the better locations, if you want to walk everywhere and yet also have a space to escape.

What makes this bungalow unique

Shade, Privacy, Location, Location, Location:) Spacious! Very Clean!! Pictures can't do it justice. Has everything you need to enjoy your time comfortably on Folly Beach!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at "Tucked Away". The location was Perfect!! We have 2 pug "Babies" that really enjoyed the fenced in yard area. The Big out door shower was Wonderful to wash the sand off the Pugs and Us! The home is very clean, and super spacious, with Everything you need already provided. It's a very short walk to the beach and all of the shops and restaurants. We are hoping to return again this summer. The area is so cute and perfect that I'd love to live there full time!!

Owner's Response: So thrilled you all enjoyed your accommodations at our little Tucked Away here on Folly Beach! We have found the fur babies and parents enjoy an opportunity to have a little space to go off leash. Hope to host you all again!

I loved it The only problem was that the commode did not flush completely

  • 4 of 5

It was very nice the one bedroom was very dark like a cave! But I got use to it! There needs to be a new couch installed. Very uncomfortable!

Owner's Response: We always make sure guests have our cells and know to contact us via text or call while visiting if they need assistance. Unfortunately we were not contacted during this visit, and it was only upon the guests departure that we discovered the septic system needed to be pumped. 95% of the homes on Folly Beach operate on septic systems and occasionally they needed to be serviced. Commode is now flushing as it should.. We have equipped the commode with a bidet which guests are finding they really appreciate! Wonderful for conserving toilet paper and relieving stress on the septic system. The futon couch is only about 2 years old and is a firm, higher quality mattress. We haven't had any complaints about it's comfort in the past...that being said, it is a futon and is there to be used as extra sleeping space, if needed in this smaller rental. A/C's are getting the job done and the private bedroom is the perfect habitat for sleeping, it is cave like...creating a hibernating vibe!

Clean, quaint and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stay in the property. It is just enough room for us. It is close to everything . And Dianne is an excellent host. We take our two dogs (45 lbs a piece), and they have a small yard to do their business. We don't have to walk them anywhere just open the door. We may never stay anywhere else on the island!!

Convenient and Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We love the place its our second time to visit its so convenient to everything and yet very quiet. You can park your car and never have to get in it again until you want to go off the island. The beach is very clean and just steps away . We walked every where , walking off some of those calories from the great places we ate at, not a bad place in the bunch. We are already planning our next trip.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this cozy little place! It was decorated very nicely. It was comfortable, and it was very inviting. We loved all of the little accommodations provided, especially the coffee maker! The beach was very close and made for very quick walks!

Owner's Response: Time and time again...a lot boils down to location! Tucked Away's location is hard to beat. We can't express enough...once you park your car...you will have no need to get back in it to navigate the island. Easily walk everywhere...yet....you are separated from the noise and crowds. Live like a local! So much to do...never quite enough time! That's why we try and create a cozy little nook...so you have to come back:)
