This was a decent place to stay, for a decent price. Good location.

  • 3 of 5

Pros: location;This place is right in the middle of main street where there are a lot of restaurants and bars that you can walk to. It was very easy for us to pick up our things and walk to to the beach. The bed was nice and the place was very affordable. Even though it was right next to a bar we really couldn't hear the noise from our room. Parking was easy. Bed was comfortable. If you are just looking for a place to crash in between beach days this is a great place to stay. The place was clean and the pictures are accurate. Checkin and checkout processes were very easy.

cons: restaurant staff would take smoke breaks right in front of our stairway. Trash pickup was VERY LOUD. It woke me up every single night I was there and I am a very heavy sleeper. It was actually pretty terrifying the first time it happened, but other than that I slept fine. Shower was not good at all. It would fluctuate between burning hot and ice cold. If a good shower is important to you I would stay away, but if you are like me and don't really care then this is a good place to stay.

Owner's Response: We had problems in the past with employees smoking near the bottom of the stairs but our property management company spoke to them and it stopped. I am upset to hear this is happening again and will certainly have this addressed. (I have already placed a call). This is the first complaint I have received about the shower, so I will have a plumber come out and take a look at it. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Perfect location!

A parking spot, a comfortable bed, apartment sized kitchen and bathroom one block from a public beach and steps from all the evening activities made this place perfect for my long-weekend. Thanks

Diana kept us in the loop. That was extremely helpful before our trip even began! My wife and I was on our way to Folly beach and we were ahead of schedule by an hour having no delays on the drive there. Diana contacted us 10 to 20 minutes before we arrived letting us know that the condo was ready to go and that if we wanted we could check in early. That was extremely helpful to us with our weeks worth of stuff clogging up our car just waiting to be unloaded. When we arrived we found the temperature inside to be nice and cool (which is even more appreciated when it's 95° outside and you live close to canada..) The condo had all of the essentials and even had some useful information, including the beach rules, posted on the fridge. It never once smelled like the fried food that the restaurant/bar was cooking like a previous reviewer had mentioned. Although it was strong once you walked out of the door, but it smelled fantastic and I couldn't help but compliment how great the food must be there.

The condo has it's own parking area out behind the building which i was thankful to not have to park on the road anywhere or pay for parking to go to the beach, as it was less than a 5 minute walk away. We didn't drive anywhere on Folly Beach because everything was just a short walk away. We were in The center of everything so everything was right there. The only time we drove was to get to charleston or the surrounding areas. Because of the easy to get to location I remembered exactly how to get back without any assistance, which is quite the feat considering I am atrocious with directions.

The sounds from the night life of Folly Beach, and more directly the bar right next door, were not disruptive in the slightest. There was live music that you could only hear clearly if the fan wasn't on and the air conditioner wasn't running, but when it did make it through it was pleasant to the ears. My wife and I slept soundly every night. I'd say the only real disruption was that they were working on the siding of the bar and their bucket truck beeped every single time it moved, so constant beeping, and they would start that at 7am.. I wouldn't say that's a normal occurrence, so it didn't affect this review or even our vacation for that matter.

Altogether we were extremely happy with our stay. We will definitely stay here again for our next visit to Folly Beach. Thanks for the amazing place to stay Diana, it made our vacation one we won't soon forget.

Loved this little apartment! My only complaint was that we needed more storage containers w/lids for the fridge! But we improvised! Owners are wonderful to work with!! This was our 2nd time to rent this apartment. Would highly recommend this spot and hope to visit there again sometime!

Very satisfied.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. I did not spend much time in the room except for the brief food poisoning I came down with. Great location for beach access and quick good eats that are on the main strip.
