Linda Scheer lives local and manages 6 beach houses in the Charleston area. Born in Charleston and raised in Savannah, GA, Linda married a military man who retired several years back.
Folly Beach is a great location for families offering plenty of restaurants, outdoor sports and shopping. The house is beachfront, and well maintained.
I live in Charleston and booked this home for my family from Alabama to stay the week before my wedding. We all loved it! The layout was so comfortable for our family of 5 and the beds were cozy and kitchen well-stocked. The view was wonderful! We loved coffee on the deck.
Only item on the wish list would be screens on the windows so we could hear the waves at night and enjoy the cool weather. That's the only thing between this house and 5 stars!!
We had a fabulous stay -- the owner was quite accommodating with questions and requests. I'd recommend this highly!
A group of 9 girls, including myself, stayed here for a bachelorette weekend, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect location. The house is located right on the beach with a private patio/walkway. The interior of the house is more spacious than it appears in photos, and the decor is simple yet elegant - it's definitely a more modern, chic beach house than the nautical, old fashioned styles you see at a lot of properties. The house is a quick 5 minute ride from the Folly Beach pier and local shops/restaurants (you could walk, but it would be quite the hike), and it's roughly 30 minutes from downtown Charleston (we went into town for dinner Saturday night and brunch the following morning). The only thing I would suggest as an improvement was the scarcity of kitchen tools/items for a large group of people - one of the reasons we booked a house was so we could cook our own meals, but the kitchen is pretty limited in the number of plates, glasses, baking tools, etc. I would suggest contacting the owner to get a detailed list of what items are included in the house if you have a party larger than four; that way, you'll know if you need to bring any additional items. Other than that, the house was exactly what we had in mind - thank you for a great experience!
Great trip and the house made it better. Being on folly and close to Charleston was perfect! Will rent again.
We have been coming to Folly for several years for our family vacation. Without a doubt, this was our best experience with Folly rentals. Being on the beachfront made it even more enjoyable.
Lots of our time was spent on the decks looking out to the beach or gathering in the common area for food and fellowship. There were ample supplies to get us through the first day allowing us time to restock the necessities. Linens included bath items and beach towels.
This house was the cleanest by far of any rentals we've experienced at Folly. There were no problems for us having to make our beds. It reassured us there were fresh linens for our week.
If the # of folks works out, we will definitely attempt to book this place again. Also, we understand this owner has larger properties available as well if our group expands for next year.
Great week at Folly with family & friends. Location of house was excellent and was great for our get together
Fantastic beachfront property, easy access and beautiful view of the ocean. Great location for a family vacation. Our family has rented over the years at Folly and thought we would try a new place with toddler grandchildren. We were really looking forward to oceanfront and the extra money spent on the rental. There isn't one major issue to pinpoint our disappointment just a lot of little things with the property - an overall lack of upkeep and sense of pride in a beachfront rental. First impression pulling into the driveway put us on alert that this may be an interesting week - the lower level (which isn't part of the rental) had broken blinds and initial reaction was "did we make a mistake here"? The house itself is "ok", but definitely nothing special in comparison to other beach homes we've rented at Folly where the homeowners were proud of their location, welcoming beach decor (a few photo's of the beach printed to make it feel "beachy") and taking time for upkeep on the house. Appliances are low apartment grade, toilet seat in master bath is worn and need replaced, master bedroom sliding door going out to the deck/ocean wouldn't open (very disappointed), several of the steps coming up the the house were loose and desperately need to replaced to avoid an accident. The walkway to the beach is old and needs to be replaced; rusty nails sticking up. Paint is peeling on the windows and exterior desperately needs some TLC. The maintenance resource did come out the next day after reporting an issue with the refrigerator and fixed the nozzle on the outdoor shower (perhaps make these repairs prior to the next renter coming in?). Mattresses were very thin, need replaced - good sleep on a vacation was difficult. Headboards need a thorough cleaning very dusty and nasty.
In closing, if you're ok overlooking these types of things based on expectations, the location is spectacular, the beach was quiet perfect for family time. We look at other rentals for our next trip. This rental was a disappointment.
Historic Charleston is approximately 15 miles from Folly Beach. Charleston offers a variety of museums, water parks, historic sites, shopping, outdoor markets, and plenty of outdoor activity.
