The beach house was just what we needed for our stay. Everything we needed was available. The very short walk to the beach was ideal! My favorite place was the screened porch but the "no see-um's" found me anyway! Would definitely stay again!

We loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a weeks vacation at this vacation rental and had a wonderful time. This was our first time at this rental and from past experiences we told ourselves to not be disappointed if the home did not quite live up to our expectations - but to our surprise it not only lived up to our expectations, it surpassed them. The home was roomier than expected, nicely decorated and more than adequately furnished. And the nice, quick walk to the beach was great! We'd look forward to staying here again.

clean & close to beach

  • 4 of 5

PROS: the owner, Judy, was very accommodating, friendly, and prompt to return phone calls. The cottage has been extremely well cared for and very clean. Providing bikes and beach chairs was an added bonus, as we love to explore beach islands by bike, and beach chairs were great, as we couldn't bring ours on the plane. The beach itself is just across the street, although beware - on the short path to get there I was eaten alive by mosquito, even with bug spray on...I learned to run down the path to minimize the damage!!! Biking into town for breakfast took us 15 mins one way, and was very doable and justified the calories from Tokyo Crepes :). I loved being close enough to town to do this and yet far enough away from the crowds and noise.

CONS: you can tell by the pictures that the place is "dated" and could benefit from renovations/ newer furniture etc. The mattresses were "OK", but with my bad back, more than 4 nights would not be desirable. Kitchen could use some Tupperware or Rubbermaid to store leftovers and a blender, as the Cusinart did not chop ice well for smoothies. Also, rugs in the bathroom would be nice - we used a towel to suffice. All in all the PROS outweigh the cons, but I'm just being honest about the "dating" of the place.

We booked very last minute, so I was glad to find this cute little place, close to the beach and clean. :)

Owner's Response: Lisa, thank you for sharing your thoughts and comments. I most probably will obtain a blender as so many folks are now drinking fruit drinks for breakfast. As for the furniture, we feel it is comfortable, clean and fits the cottage atmosphere. We are glad you enjoyed the bikes and your stay at Folly.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this little house justice. The cottage is so clean and if you've ever been to Folly you know how difficult & rare that can be. The owners are so nice and were available when needed. They even had beach toys for our kids that we were able to use. The Beach access is almost directly across the road, so it's very convenient & easy to get to. Our family - 2 adults and two children - had a lovely time in the cottage. It was just perfect for us. We plan to come back again and again. The only thing missing is an outdoor shower!

It feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was exactly what we were looking for. The pictures on the web site do not do it justice. The cottage feels very comfortable and inviting. The owner was pleasant and very helpful. My family vacationed on Folly Beach when I was a little girl and it was nice to revisit the area with my mother and sister after 30 years. A lot has changed but the unique, warm beach town that I remember can still be found. Charleston is very close with many things to do. We took the Harbor Tour and it was very enjoyable. I can not say enough about this little beach cottage that is so relaxing you will never want to leave. I will definitely be returning.
