Wonderful, relaxing, great home to enjoy Folly Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Marsh Retreat was the perfect home for our family vacation. We had a wonderful time enjoying Folly Beach and Charleston. I've had Folly sand between my toes for over twenty years, and wanted my children and grandchildren to experience it, and love it as much as I do! It was a success! We will return, soon, I hope.

Marsh Retreat had everything we needed and then some! Games, movies, pool, hot tub and a nicely appointed kitchen. We loved the house!

Gladly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We rent a lot through HomeAway and have had much better experiences with owner managed properties but "Marsh Retreat" was the exception! Communication before and during was exceptional. The house is just as described and perfectly equipped for a comfortable stay. If Folly Beach is where you want to be do not hesitate to rent the "Marsh Retreat". We were here for my sons graduation from College of Charleston and it was the perfect house for our special occasion. We are a family of 5 with two teenagers and a college graduate. My 84 and 87 year old parents joined us also and loved the house. There are stairs but they were able to navigate just fine. We had extra room for girlfriends and additional friends to spend a night or two. Go for it!

Beautiful home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Marsh Retreat at the end of March. The house was beautiful and well-organized. It comfortably fit 10 of us with room to fit 4 more! The decks, pool, and hot tub were all amazing. The location of the house could not be better. It is steps away from the beach and about a mile away from the town of Folly Beach. We were able to enjoy our stay without needing a car!

Brenda, thank you so much for all that you did to ensure we had a wonderful trip. Thank you especially for your prompt and efficient response with the garbage disposal and for shipping back the left behind clothing items free of charge without hesitation. I was truly touched by your kindness and assistance. Thank you again!

We all couldn't have asked for a better trip! I have already recommended the Marsh Retreat to friends, and I would absolutely book another stay the next time I am in town!

Crawfish boil

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean and well stocked, like staying in your own home. Brenda was easy to work with. We rented this property for our out of town relatives to stay in for our son's wedding. We had our welcome party (crawfish boil) there and found more than enough room to entertain our out of town guests. If there was any drawback, it was that the house is a full three story's tall, not including the raised garage. Some people are not used to all those stairs. I didn't pay any attention, because I live in a raised house. But this negative was outweighed by how much privacy you got, and the ability to have accommodations for a lot of single adults in the third floor room. I was really pleased! Thanks!!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Marsh Retreat hosted our large group very comfortably. The hot tub and grill were great and it had everything we needed. The large table on the screened in porch made it possible to enjoy eating outside without the bugs. And we could watch the deer and hawks while eating breakfast each morning! The island was extremely busy and crowded but from the house you wouldn't know it. It truly was a retreat. And the perfect distance from the beach! Very easy walk. And wonderful that chairs, towels, and beach toys/games were provided.

Plenty of beds and bathrooms for the 10 of us. the march view off the upstairs back deck it beautiful and the screen porch was wonderful for late evening dinners.
