Private Homes house description
* June, July and August - Weekly Rental Only - Sunday to Sunday.*
*Outdoor equipment is not included*
This is a charming, cozy home that sits right on a tidal creek and marsh. It would be comfortable for a couple or a family with as many as two kids. Private dock, with spectacular view.
There are many species of birds, like the Blue Heron, Ibis, Egrets, Wood Storks and pelicans that make their home in the marsh just feet from the house. It is not uncommon to be visited by a family of dolphins that swim up the creek to feed. Two miles from Folly Beach and ten miles from downtown Charleston.
The backyard tidal creek connects with the Folly River and eventually the ocean. It offers excellent kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding. Equipment is not included but can be rented from a local outfitter and launched off the dock.
Please keep in mind that we are not on Folly Island proper, but a peninsula minutes up the road. We are in a quiet neighborhood where houses are close together. We cannot accommodate people coming to Folly to party, but those coming to relax and enjoy nature and Charleston. 2 adults maximum and absolutely no parties and no noise after 10pm. Also be aware that there is a tv in the bedroom that can play dvds but no cable tv in the house.
This house can be rented with the next door apartment. Listing #455737

Favorite Family Vacation!
Favorite Family Vacation!
Our family of 4 stayed at Tutu's over Easter break. We couldn't have asked for better! An excellent place to stay for anyone, but especially if you have young children. There were numerous toys and books, crib, highchair, booster. It was perfect for our 10 month old as well as 7 year old. The decor is beachy, clean and cozy (the adorable grandkid pics made me feel at home too). We loved that there was no TV in living room...lots of great quality time! Everything and more than you would need in the kitchen. Perfect distance from Folly beach as well as Charleston. We got to enjoy both. We are already checking calendar to see when we can stay again during the summer so that we can enjoy more of the outdoors adventures that are offered. My husband and I highly reccomend staying at Tutu's! We have rented for years off of VRBO, but this was the first time that I was more impressed once I got there than I was by the listing. The pictures don't even do it justice. The communication between us and them was timely, which I appreciate. The only issue we had was rusty water but I am told that is being taken care of. Thank you Tutu for a wonderful Easter! :.)

Manager response: We're so glad you enjoyed the house! Yes, the rusty water was the hot water heater telling us that it needed to be replaced which was done. Brand new hot water heater and no more rusty water. Hope you can come visit again soon!
What an INCREDIBLY Relaxiing Time!!!
What an INCREDIBLY Relaxiing Time!!!
My husband and I stayed in the Charleston Creekside cottage for two weeks in late November and early December. It was just perfect for us. The location is extremely convenient to everywhere (the historic town of Charleston was just a few minutes away, Folly Beach was even closer, and Sullivan's Island was about a half hour drive). We also drove to Savannah, stayed one night and returned the next day. The house is quiet, the water view is peaceful and serene. The lanai (Hawaiian for porch) is so enjoyable to sit and enjoy a drink and the view. The house is fully equipped, and we ate there most nights, which made for a more affordable and healthier vacation. We most heartily recommend this charming house!!!

Manager response: So glad you enjoyed your trip! Note to prospective renters: We listed this house with VRBO in February, 2013 but have been renting through word of mouth for about a year or so prior. We contacted some past renters who were gracious enough to share their experiences and we thank them!!
What a View!
What a View!
This house had a stunning view of the marsh! And a great backyard. My grandkids loved the slide and little playhouse. Also the pier at Folly Beach, only a few minutes away. Lots of fun restaurants there, too, like The Lost Dog and Taco Boy. There was so much to do nearby that we plan to come back again. Tutu's Ohana is a great place to stay!
