About Richard and Lauri Huss

We live on Folly Beach. We built this house for our daughter and her family to live in while they completed school. They have recently moved, which gives us the ability to rent the home as a vacation rental.

Richard and Lauri Huss purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard and Lauri Huss chose Charleston Area

We chose to build this particular design because for the large porch and open floor plan. It was designed by Allison Ramsey Architects in Beaufort SC.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 2 month stay. Property is everything you could want. Neighborhood and neighbors are very nice and extremely friendly. Had to cut our stay short by a week due to a lightening strike nearby that crippled some of the appliances ( washer, stove exhaust fans and smoke detectors.) Obviously not he owners fault and Richard was very helpful in getting an electrician to repair the damage.

Richard is the nicest guy you can meet and was always very responsive to our needs.

House is very easy to live in and the fenced in yard was perfect for our 2 miniature Schnauzers

Bright and Roomy, Helpful Owners

  • 4 of 5

This house is clean, bright, comfortable and was great for our (4 adults) weekend stay in Charleston. The house is spacious, the kitchen is big and has the basic amenities, the beds are very comfortable, and it's an easy, short drive to all of the great downtown fun and delicious restaurants in Charleston. The owners are extremely nice, responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

An unfortunate negative - which is not the fault of the owners of course and may be a fluke for the time we were there - is that the neighbors next door had their radio playing all night long for both nights we were there. You could hear it the entire night in the master bedroom, but not so much in the other two bedrooms.

Other than that, wonderful stay!

The perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Close to the Edge is a gorgeous house and just what we were looking for. It was a great location, close to the beach but far enough away for separation. Would definitely stay there again.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, all the comforts of home, plenty of room. Very close to shopping and restaurants in Folly Beach. Our immediate family stayed there the week of our daughter's wedding. Plenty of room and lots of parking when 14 women converged on the house to have hair and makeup done on the day of the wedding.

Very good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Close to the Edge. It was very roomy for four women and two toy poodles. It was also very clean and the location was convenient to Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Charleston, shopping and restaurants. We would stay there again.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Waters Edge for our daughters graduation from Pharmacy School at MUSC. The Waters Edge is a well maintained beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. We grilled out and enjoyed eating at non-chain restaurants, cafes and diners.

There is easy access to Folly Beach just down the road. Our daughters enjoyed a bike ride around the neighborhood. Charleston is easy to get to with an unending list of things to do for the entire family.

We highly recommend The Waters Edge !
