About Karen Tunstall

We have been visiting Hilton Head Island since 1986 when our parents bought a home there. We fell in love with the place and have been coming back since.

Karen Tunstall purchased this house in 2009

Why Karen Tunstall chose Folly Field

We bought the home in Folly Field because we love the residential feel of this beach community. The people are very friendly and the beach is one of the best on the island. The public beach access offers rest rooms, life guards, vending machines, chair and board rentals in season.

What makes this house unique

The home is 200 yards from Folly Field Beach Park which offers season life guards, beach equipment rental, rest rooms, outdoor showers and vending.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us. The house is beautiful! We loved the pool, the ocean, beach sunrises just a few minutes from the house, the comfy deck chairs to listen to the frogs and to gaze at the stars at night and on and on.

The info you gave us was very helpful. We ate crab legs at Aunt Chiladas, saw the sunset in Harbor Town, visited the Salty Dog, had ice cream at the Frozen Moo in Coligny and visited Piggly Wiggly more times than I'd like to admit.

Each morning was exciting. Each day was fun filled, and each night was restful. We all feel recharged and peaceful.

Thank you!

Great 4 night getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and fun beach house! Two families from Ohio came together for a long Labor Day weekend and we hit a homerun with this vacation home! Perfect for kids. We spent most of our time at the beach, which is only a 5 min walk, and at the pool, which is right in the backyard! The private pool made it easy to wind down from the beach, with surround sound and easy access to kitchenette, it was the perfect oasis for all of us to relax before heading out to dinner. For the nights we decided to stay-in, the home comes with a large gas grill and plenty of shaded outdoor seating. The home easily accommodated 9 of us, 4 adults and 5 kids.

We've been coming to HHI for 11 years. Folly Beach is a hidden gem with less traffIc but easy access to everything from Selter Cove to Coligny. We will definitely stay here again!

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable (and fun!) stay at this house. The owner is very attentive to questions, needs, etc. and has great communication. We loved how close this home is to the beach. Even with a big beach cart with canopy/chairs/etc we didn't mind the quick walk. We spent a lot of time in the pool in the afternoons and loved the top deck for dinners. Thanks for a great stay in HHI!

Folly Field Gem

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers have already said just about everything about this place, but I wanted to relay a quick story about Karen. I mentioned to her that we didn't see any hot pads in the kitchen which was strange because this is the best stocked kitchen I've ever seen. They even have lightbulbs and batteries in the drawers. One hour later a lady stopped by and said she had some hot pads she wanted to put in the kitchen for us. Amazing! Place is very clean, up to date, awesome location, beautiful backyard. First time in Folly Field and there are some houses like this one that have been updated, and many houses that are not renters and they are very old and run down (think boats and cars in the front yard). We felt safe here, but this neighborhood will sky rocket in popularity once all of the homes have been re-done. We loved the backyard pool and ping pong. The TV room on the top floor was our main source of entertainment for the evenings when we weren't swimming in the pool. Close to everything. Having a key code was also nice rather than worrying about a physical key. We will be back! Well done Karen!

Private Oasis

  • 4 of 5

We've vacationed many times in Hilton Head but this was our first time in Folly Field. It is definitely quieter and more residential than the hustle and bustle of the "touristy" sections of the Island. The beach is an easy 2 minute walk and BEAUTIFUL. This property is an older home in a mixed neighborhood and it's very well maintained. There is ample, comfortable seating inside and outside, the beds are fabulous and the whole atmosphere of the house is inviting. We unpacked, hid our suitcases in the bottoms of closets and relaxed! We spent most of our time in the backyard. The pool is phenomenal and it helps that it's solar heated, the temperature always felt right! The landscaping all around it made you forget you were anywhere else than in this fabulous little oasis. There is plenty of seating/lounging all around, and there is a covered area for shade lovers. We turned on the radio and lost hours of our days here. The downstairs kitchenette is awesome to have ~ we stored our drinks and snacks here so we could easily grab something while hanging out at the pool and I didn't have to worry about anyone running through the house dripping wet. The pool light made night swimming fun ~ we kept the main outside spotlight off so as not to attract bugs and never had a problem. My in-laws visited for a couple days and they were not fans of the spiral staircase inside, so I would say if you have older, unsteady guests with you, this is not ideal. They adapted quickly and used the outside stairs. We don't have toddlers anymore, so I can't speak to how they would handle it. It didn't bother the 4 of us, though, and my kids (11, 13) thought it was cool!

We rented at the end of a busy season, so we did walk into just a few issues that had been left behind. Karen was in contact with me immediately and worked quickly to remedy the situation. She is so easy to talk to!! Prior to our visit, she sent emails and was quick to answer any questions I had. She also offers some local recommendations and they were spot-on! LOVED Aunt Chilada's!

This property is 10 minutes to everything, if you do feel the need to leave this quiet bubble of the world ~ go North to find major chain stores like Barnes and Noble and the Tanger outlets, and tons of grocery stores; go South to Coligny and Harbortown.

If you need to forget the outside world for just a little while, this is the place for you!

Thank you Karen and John for opening your home to us!
