Very inviting house
Very inviting house
The house layout and furnishings made for a very inviting and comfortable family gathering - three couples with a birthday celebration. It's open spaces, decks, screen porch, several sitting areas, and colorful decor made for an environment of fun and relaxation. The kitchen provided more than ample counter and cooking space for us to prepare and enjoy meals together. Linens and beds were great and we found the house very clean. The listing needs to be updated as they apparently no longer allow pets and the grill was too worn out to be used. There were also a few minor maintenance items which I called to the attention of the manager, and received a prompt and appreciative reply. If you enjoy the marsh and beach views, with very close beach access, the location is perfect. The Lost Dog for a special breakfast.

Great house, great location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 'Blue Pelican' and hope to return again. The house was in well order and very clean. The kitchen was a treat with everything to make a meal. The beach is just across the street and the views of the water were good from the deck. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Lost Dog is the best breakfast and Ritas for Margaritas!

Ideal house and location
Ideal house and location
We stayed here for four days for my husband's work trip for the Charleston Food and Wine Festival, as downtown Charleston is about 20 minutes away, and my parents live in North Charleston . The house was immaculate upon our arrival, very roomy, and in the perfect location (near Washout, the quieter part of Folly Beach)! We could see the beach and waves from the living room. It's not beachfront officially, but it might as well been! Although the weather was not warm enough during our visit to enjoy the front deck and the beach itself, it still felt like vacation since we could see the waves. The house has a great open floor plan, and my twin boys had alot of room to crawl around. Another couple with their baby girl, as well as my sister, stayed as well,and my parents came over to visit during the day, and we had more than enough room. The kitchen area was large and a great gathering place for our meals. There was also plenty room for parking. The rental had just changed management companies aout a couple of weeks before our arrival, so I was a little nervous, but our contact Ed was thorough and readily available for questions before and during our arrival. The screened in porch off the dining area was nice and had pretty view of the marsh. The house was pet friendly before changing management companies and although we didn't initally plan to bring our well behaved dogs for this trip, for future potential visits, it would have been nice, as there is a fenced back yard and grassy areas, and beach access right across the street (one of our dogs loves the beach and Folly is very dog friendly). Nevertheless, we absolutely loved this house and definitely plan to stay again!

Great location but the property is in need of some reno improvements. Excellent place for dogs. Generally very comfortable and quiet (February rented). Would rent it again next year.
