Prefect setup for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a family group (grandparents, parents and a 2year old) vacation. Sweet retreat couldn't have been better suited for us. The lay out of the house, large open kitchen, large living area with lots of seating, 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, one with a washer & dryer, fenced in yard, lots of shade, gorgeous trees, large outside picnic table, clothes line and my favorite-the screened in room in the back. We took advantage of it all. Very short walk to the beach. About a 5 min walk to the downtown area. There's a nice park for children with a tennis & basketball court on the next block. The decor in the house is looks like something from a magazine, I took many pictures. We felt at home while we were there and all of us were sad to leave! Short drive to Charleston. So many things to do and places to eat. We would not hesitate to return.

What a great place and location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house because it was close to beach and an easy 15 minute drive to the College of Charleston for our daughter's graduation. We loved the large living room and kitchen area. Very comfortable furniture and well stocked kitchen (with very nice wine glasses). Everything was so clean (I often don't notice this kind of thing) and inviting. I also appreciated how quick the owner was to respond to emails and her generous effort to meet our needs. If I could change one thing it would be for the owners to accept pets, but I also understand why they don't. That might explain why everything was so clean and well taken care of inside and out. We hope to rent this house again for a week every summer.

I love this cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is such a nice place for a vacation. Just a couple blocks off the beach, on a quiet street. The screened in porch was a great place to hang out. The house is well-appointed, with everything you need.

Wonderful, family friendly place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sweet Retreat! The house was beautiful, enclosed porch in the back along with a grill made it very family friendly and a chance to spend quality time together. House is located a short walk to the beach and to the center of town. We found the area to be quiet and the locals very friendly. Would highly recommend this place to everyone!

Beautiful home, easy walk to the beach, downtown Folly

  • 5 of 5

This home was a fantastic option for our family of 4. Lots of room to spread out with a nice kitchen and living room. Owners were very responsive to two issues we had. Folly Beach was beautiful and super easy access from only a few quick blocks away. We drove to downtown Charlestown twice for a really easy drive as well. Definitely recommend!

wonderful stay, beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

we visited the Sweet Retreat cottage for three days last week and were absolutely pleased with the place! Everything was comfortable, the paint all fresh, the living areas were beautiful: each bedroom was gorgeous, the kitchen was super nice, we loved the colors and decorations, the outdoor areas of the yard were comfy and inviting. We would defibitely stay here again.
