Great! *****

Left on 07/04/2013 for a stay in June 2013


If one wishes a large modern home with all the accoutrements this place is not for you. But if you wish a place on the ocean with a phenomenal deck and screened in porch at a great value this place cannot be beat. We spent a week in June, 2013 at the home (our 10th season at Folly Beach) and never had more ocean and sand friendly accommodations at such a reasonable price.

Ocean front splendor

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, comfortable house with all the amenities you need. We had a girls weekend and had plenty of space and sleeps 6 people comfortably. Nice screened in porch to listen to the waves or view the beautiful surroundings. Two decks with furniture and a swing to watch the beautiful sunrise. Well lit steps for safety.m Close to everything. Look no further, it's a wonderful home away from home.

Cozy Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

The location is great (right off of Folly Beach) with an awesome oceanfront view. We stayed for 2 nights and ran into just one hiccup when we arrived, but Dave was quick to respond to our call (at midnight) and made sure everything went smoothly. The "Welcome Lady" was really sweet and gave us gifts and tips for our stay. Overall, had a great experience from initial inquiry to check-out!

Delightful stay

  • 4 of 5

Our last minute visit during Xmas holidays was an effortless joy that provided just was a few holiday weary folks needed. The house was well equipped with everything needed. Our tall son had to make a "t" out of the 2 small single beds to accommodate how long he is, but managed. It was a chilly time of year and new blankets would've been nice, but all in all the location, porch swing, and walk through the trees to get to the beach was a much needed slice of heaven. If posh is your desire, this isn't it...if rustic funky is ok, then come and enjoy!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you came to experience this island cottage. We acknowledge twin beds are not made for folks 6 feet tall, but are glad you recognized the charm of Someplace Else!

Best view, home decent

  • 3 of 5

The view and location of this home are amazing, the decks and beach is right off the house, everything works ok at the house itself but could definitely use updating, I was also unaware that it's 3 separate living/storage areas in one home, but no one was staying on the above unit.

Overall view and location was worth it, beach was very nice.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Many people specifically enjoy the charm of this beach cottage, we don't try to be like a fancy condo. Our listing clearly states "Please note: An owner family member and his wife for work reasons utilize a ground floor level apartment on site weeknights but never on weekends. They both work outside the home, leaving early and arriving late, and will be very sensitive to the privacy of your visit. You won't know they are there. They will not be using the outdoor deck or grill." There is no 3rd living area, the top level you see in the pictures is purely unfinished attic.

Just what we needed................................again.

  • 5 of 5

1301 East Ashley has never let us down. We began staying here about 10 years ago and just finished our 5th stay ending a 10 night trip on 9/25/16. Home was cozy and clean as usual and booking process was as smooth as it could be. I will admit that not being able to walk directly to the beach from the back deck as we had done in past stays was irritating at first but we eventually got used to using the public access next to the property. Perfect weather and uncrowded beach made our stay just what the doctor ordered. 2 thumbs up again Folly Beach !

Owner's Response: Jerry, what a fun story! You have stayed her so many times and have experienced the changes and the beauty thru the years. We are very privileged to have your review. The world changes everyday, but there is something constant and beautiful and simple about the views from that deck, and enjoying the balance of nature! Thank you for your stay and review!! - iTrip Charleston Team

Book your Charleston vacation rental and experience coastal beauty infused with Southern charm!

When you plan a Charleston vacation, you pick your experience. Our guests can stay in the city or nearby in island destinations such as Folly Island and the Isle of Palms.

Enjoy both history and modernity in one of our Charleston vacation rentals. From the area’s pristine beaches to PGA Tour golf courses, fine dining, and rich historical landmarks, families and singles alike can't get enough of Charleston. So much so, the city has consistently ranked as the No. 1 world-renown vacation spot by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler.

Start your vacation outdoors and explore both the Atlantic Ocean and Copper River. Families can relax on one of the area beaches or get in the water for boating, fishing, kayaking, parasailing, swimming and surfing. Charleston also houses nature preserves, gardens, parks and the South Carolina Aquarium, a family favorite.

When not enjoying the scenery, head to the dozens of attractions and festivals in Charleston that celebrate history and arts and culture. History buffs will find opportunities to learn more about both the Civil War and the Revolutionary War with access to historical sites, including churches, stunning plantation homes and the Fort Sumter National Monument. No trip will feel complete without taking one of the many guided ghost and walking tours to see more than 50 museums – including America's first theater, the Dock Street Theatre in the French Quarter – and art galleries that showcase the area's rich national heritage and local culture.

Our guests also have a blast shopping at the King Street Fashion District, which includes dozens of retailers selling everything from antiques and apparel to locally made treats. The city's food scene also ranks as one of the best in the U.S., and has more than 150 restaurants showcasing chef-inspired dishes as well as traditional favorites.

If you prefer to stay outside but in proximity to the city, iTrip Vacations Charleston also has vacation rentals located in Folly Island and Isle of Palms, two barrier islands off the South Carolina coast. These destinations feature miles of beaches, family-friendly activities, award-winning restaurants and more.

Stay in a Folly Beach vacation rental, and have a blast on or off the water. Folly Island sits between the Folly River and Atlantic Ocean, providing the best of both freshwater and saltwater activities. Families enjoy relaxing on the beaches, biking, boating, fishing, dolphin-watching, kayaking and sailing.

The island houses two parks that offer public beach access and events: Folly River Park and Folly Beach County Park, both located in proximity to restaurants, shopping and play areas. Another must-see attraction is the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, where visitors can fish, watch wildlife and spend time together. Although locals refer to this spot as the Edge of America, Folly Island is only a 15-minute drive to Charleston.

Isle of Palms – located only 12 miles to Charleston – offers a friendly beach community complete with modern amenities to create a place to have fun and relax. The area has a thriving district packed full of shops and restaurants surrounded by miles of beaches and residences. Popular Isle of Palms activities include fishing charter adventures, sightseeing, watersports and golf at the Wild Dunes Island resort.
