About Dianne Ray

We have been blessed to call Folly Beach our home since 2004. Prior to moving to Folly we lived on neighboring James Island for 10 years. We love Charleston and especially life on the Edge of America. Folly is constantly shifting, changing, improving and yet it remains the eclectic, funky beach town that we all know and love. It is our great joy to share our little slice of heaven with our guests and hope they appreciate all of Folly's energy and charm.

Dianne Ray purchased this villa in 2004

Why Dianne Ray chose Charleston Area

Sea-Hab is the perfect get away for a couple looking to spend a few days on the Island. The location could not be more ideal....walking distance to the beach, Berts{local grocery}, Restaurants and Bars. Once you park you never need to crank the car up again. Sea-Hab is tucked back in it's own little shaded, private area, although you are close to all things Folly, sitting on your own little deck you might never know it. Wonderful spot for a single individual or a couple to get to live like a Folly local for a spell.

I rented the Sea Hab for a weekend getaway. It was perfect. It's a minute walk to everywhere-the beach, bars, my favorite breakfast spot etc. It's all a couple really needs at the beach-a place to sleep and shower. The bed is comfy with great pillows and blankets. The shower has great water pressure. The TV moves so that you can watch it from bed (I have to watch tv to fall asleep). Right outside the front door are 2 chairs, a mini patio and an outdoor shower. We brought our small dog-she loved it as well! Thanks for the great hospitality!

Great little spot for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Sea Hab. My wife and I stayed there for two nights: arrived Friday night, stayed all day Saturday, and left Sunday morning. The best thing was that we never had to get in the car once we parked. Everything is so close it's almost ridiculous. Grocery store? Less than one block. Liquor store? Next to the grocery store. Bar? Across the street from the liquor store. Beach? Three short blocks. It's also just a block from Center Street which is where most of the bars and restaurants are.

The room itself was just right. It had just enough of everything for two people, and the little back yard was a nice private spot for relaxation. Would definitely be tight for more than two people.

It was a bit over priced.I'm guessing it was priced that way because of location which was in fact excellent..close to beach , pier and restaurants.

I would not put an adult on the 'fold down' couch unless they enjoyed sleeping on a brick. It was very uncomfortable to just sit on. I could not imagine sleeping on it.

It does rain and sometimes you are inside.

Comfortable seating would be a good thing.

There was no dining table so I improvised by putting the bench at end of bed in front of the couch.

The beach chairs are in need of replacement as the are almost rusted through.

I gave it a 3 because it was 'ok'.

I rent through home away pretty often and I've never had a BAD rental..just average .

So I can recommend it just is not anything special!

Owner's Response: Clean, Comfortable, Wonderful Location and really is well equipped for a small efficiency. This rental is as advertised, small but thoughtfully arranged for guests to be comfortable and hopefully have what they need. It is just a single room so no room for dining, however as stated there is a light weight bench that can be moved as well as two side tables beside the sofa that could also double as tray tables. Salt water and air are never kind to the two beach chairs we provide but we replace them twice a year and it appears they are due again. We really don't recommend the futon for adults for sleeping, it is there simply for a small child if needed and in that case we provide the guests with a memory foam topper for additional comfort. This rental is designed for 1 person or a couple and as a short term 1-3 night stay.

Very relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a couple to stay. We were able to park our car when we got there and walk everywhere. The beach, shopping and food were all walking distance. The room was very clean and secluded. Perfect getaway.

Owner's Response: Really an awesome spot to relax and get away from it all. Perfect for one person or a couple to park their car and explore Folly without ever turning the ignition again!

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a great stay here. We stayed at the Sea Hab with our five year old daughter and it was the perfect size for us. The location is very convenient to the beach and Center street. You can park your car and not move it again until its time to leave. We would definitely stay here again.

Cozy and close to everything

  • 4 of 5

I am sitting outside of the rental in the private outdoor area enjoying the morning and a cup of coffee as I write this. ( The outside area has been updated from what the photos show!) My checkout time is in a few hours, but I don't want to leave!

I wanted a place to rent for just the weekend for my daughter, son-in-law and myself. We wanted to be close to the beach and the downtown area. This place was perfect for our needs. I have not moved my vehicle since we got here.

LOVED and used the outdoor shower many times. So nice that it had hot water too! And was surprised to see the path to our door lit up dimly by outdoor garden lights when we came back after dark. So peaceful.

This place is small, but we didn't need anything big. We were quite comfortable with our choice. This is our third trip to Folly, and we will definitely rent the Sea Hab again if it available!
