The best feature of this property is for sure the location! The studio is located conveniently only one block from Center St; where all of the shops and restaurants are. Bert's Market, the local grocer and deli is right around the corner with the beach only about 300ft from the unit. The fishing pier is a short block away as well. We added some special touches to the room to make up for the small space- the wall has a mural of the local pier, there is a custom made barn door, and custom made shower curtain, custom decorative pillow covers and custom bed runner.

Great value at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is just as advertised. It is not large, but has everything you need! It is basically a hotel room, at the beach, but without the price tag. The bed is very comfortable with a pillow selection to fit your individual needs, plenty of towels to shower and large beach towels as well. The location is what makes it great. Everything is within walking distance! The beach, market, ABC (liquor) store, shopping, restaurants, the pier and night life. Chico Feo, a local favorite, is across the street and often has entertainment that you can enjoy within earshot, but when you close the door you don't hear a thing! I spent 5 weeks in this unit and had zero complaints. Some reviews mentioned hot water issues. I had none. Hey this is definitely not the Ritz Carlton, but once the hot water comes out, just back down the pressure and it lasts long enough for two un-rushed, comfortable showers. Enjoy. RELAX IT'S FOLLY.

Cozy, sweet, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I stayed here, and I will be back again in the future! Convenient location to beach and local restaurants and bars. The second time we had a toddler with us, so it was great to be able to walk the neighborhood with her! Highly would recommend for a couple.

VERY conveniently located, clean, but small

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay here! The pictures don't lie... this place is small small small. But for the two of us, it worked because we were at the beach or out and about exploring Folly and Charleston, and really only used the studio for sleeping and showering. Bert's Market next door is awesome--we stocked up on things we forgot to bring (sunblock), lunch for the week (amazing made-to-order sandwiches), and essentials (zip lock baggies and trash bags). My only real complaints are that the Internet didn't work (sadly some need to check in with work periodically through the week) and there was no outdoor shower or hose to rinse off after the beach (sand was kind of everywhere by the end of the week). Lastly, Omar was very responsive to a small issue we had with the unit, and he had it promptly fixed. If you're comfortable being in close quarters with the person you're vacationing with, value close access to the beach, bars, restaurants, and Bert's, and don't mind a little sand, this is the place for you! Can't beat the price for this location.

Located 1 block from the beach, and 1 block from the heart of downtown Folly - where all of the shops and restaurants are located. A 30 second walk from Bert's Market, our 24/7/365 gourmet market, and a Folly Beach landmark. A 30 minute drive to Charleston International Airport, and 10 minutes from downtown Charleston.
