My husband and I have stayed in this house a couple of times and have loved each visit equally. It's a wonderful home with spectacular views and sunsets. The second time we stayed we went with another couple and they loved it too - they're talking about going again this Fall. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone!

This property was extremely disappointing. The web page makes it appear much better than it actually is. These pictures have to be 20 years old from the looks of the trees in the pictures compared to what they are now. Bathrooms were dirty, saw cockroaches. The upholstered furniture in the great room was worn out and did not function. The top step and hand railing going in to the family room was dangerously loose. When the outside shower was turned on water gushed out of the car port ceiling and could not be used. Some bedrooms were crammed with no furniture or extra space for suitcases etc. This house has lovely views and new outdoor porch furniture, a plus. The booking agent was responsive to some of our concerns. I would not recommend this house.

We thoroughly enjoyed this home! My family and I, 3 generations made up of 6 adults and 6 children, found this house to be spacious and accommodating. The house was well equipped with almost everything we could want or need during our stay. Everything was clean upon arrival. The views of the marsh, Morris Island light house and Ravenel Bridge from the back porches were incredible. You do not get much of an ocean view, but we almost didn't care. There is a small front and back yard that was perfect when the kids wanted to play outside when we weren't out and about around Folly and Charleston. Nice, quiet location. We definitely recommend this house!

DISAPPOINTED AND NO RESPONSE
DISAPPOINTED AND NO RESPONSE
Our family stayed at "Way South of Broad" for a recent spring break, 2011. It has a nice floor plan with great views. We did not feel it was as clean as it could have been and in fact the outside of the property was down right disgusting. Upon our arrival, we found all of the recycle bins and garbage cans on the curb and full. Come to find out from the neighbor that the garbage pick up was the that morning we arrived. So needless to say we had to move the cans from the curb and have no where to put our trash. There was a half bag of garbage that I picked up from the ground below the house, near the stairs, and very unsightful. Including a soiled pair of underwear and diaper in the outdoor shower. Not a welcoming first impression. Inside, it is in dire need of fresh paint and a thorough cleaning. Things were particularly dusty and grimy. Unfortuately, after two emails we have yet to hear from her and it has been two weeks. I've been expecting a phone call with some sort of explaination or apology which hasn't come. That is rather disappointing at this point. I've hesitated to call, not knowing if it would result in anything positive. Some sort of partial refund on the cleaning charges? Or an explaination of the outdoor appearance? I guess if I were the owner I would promptly contact the renter after being emailed and try to address their concerns. Under these circimstances, I would definitely not recommend this property to any of our friends or family. Charleston is a wonderful city which we have visited before and I know we will return to.

Owner response: This guest never called while staying at the property. We would have gladly sent our cleaning crew back to the house if we had known. In May 2011, the entire house was repainted and bedrooms recarpeted. We strive to have one of the most beautiful homes in Folly and always want our guests to be happy.
Beautiful Beach House

Way South of Broad is a beautiful beach house. Thanks to the owner for allowing us to stay at the house. While we stayed there we had a beautiful wedding on the beach. The beach house was gorgeous, and I do plan to go back to re-cherish the time my new husband and I shared there. The owner was kind enough to allow us to have a small wedding reception at the house. It was perfect. Plenty of places to eat and sit. There was enough space, and the kitchen was great to prepare the wedding reception food. After the wedding my husband and I enjoyed the walks on the beach and downtown Charleston. Loved the sunsets across the marsh while lounging in lounge chairs from the screened in back porch. I will never forget the beauty of the beach house. I shared a great occassion with my family and friends while I stayed there. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND WAY SOUTH OF BROAD! :o)

Hot nights! No response!
Hot nights! No response!
Our family stayed at Way South of Broad for a week's celebration of our 50th anniversary. It is a spacious facility with great views. We did not feel it was as clean as it could have been and we were without airconditioning on the top level for two days and nights. We talked to the owner on several ocassions and on the third day her father brought up two window airconditioners. Much to our relief as the temperature and humidity were both in the mid 90's. She told us via phone that she would give us a refund for those days but despite an email and a regular letter, we have yet to hear from her and it has been over a month. That is rather disappointing at this point. Under these circimstances, I would hesitate to recommend this property to any of our friends or family. Charleston is a very charming city which we have visited before and I am sure we will return to. Golf courses are great and all the restaurants have excellent food.

Owner response: We completely lost the upstairs air compressor and installed three window units on a day's notice which were used until the new compressor arrived. We refunded two nights for our guests' inconvenience. We are sorry this happened, but some matters are beyond our control. We react as fast as possible and never received any complaint from this guest as to the cleanliness of our home.
Thanks, Rose Mary, for a great place to stay. The house is exactly as listed: beautiful and comfortable. Plenty of hot water, a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and a responsive owner are just a few of the reasons to stay here. We had a marvelous week and can't wait to come back.

What a wonderful home!! We stayed here during Labor Day. It is a close walk to the beach, beautiful breazes. The double chase lounge is a great place to read, relax or even take a nap. I had friends and family come in from out of town and we all had a wonderful time. It was nice to fit so many people around one table for dinner. Each room felt like home. I would definately come here again!!!!

What a wonderful beach home! We had a great time at Way South of Broad. The home was very comfortable, had great amenities and wonderful views. One of my favorite rituals on vacation was enjoying the views while having coffee in the morning on the front deck while planning the day and having cocktails on the back deck at the end of the day while discussing the day's events. This was our first trip to Folly Beach...we loved it. Had a great time riding bikes, eating at different restaurants and spending time on the beach. It was great being so close to Charleston...we had fun shopping, touring and watching the River Dogs. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We look forward to coming back in the future.

I am sitting here in -15 degree below zero weather fondly remembering the wonderful week I spent in Folly Beach. This house is a gem - relaxing, comfortable, absolutely top notch. Not one problem from start to finish. I would really like to be sitting on the front porch right now! Thank you so much

About the owner: When I was born, my grandparents had a house on front beach at Folly. During my life, I have seen many changes, but through it all, one thing remains the same - it is heaven on earth. As the locals call it - the Edge of America - there is no place like it!
