Charming and LOTS of character!
"The decor of the house is so charming. There was a lot of attention to detail when designing this lovely home. Several large picture windows have old window frames inside the new window that gives it so much charm. The columns used on the stairwell was a great touch, it was wonderful being right on the beach, and worked great with our extended family of 16. The younger kids loved the bunks in the hall, while the married and older young adults had their own bedrooms and baths. We rented a golf cart but didn't use it as much as i thought we would have. It was a quaint little town and we met the sweetest lady that has lived there since 1985. She was a sweetheart!
We enjoyed having the space under the house for corn hole tournaments at night or during late afternoon rain showers. There was plenty of space for all and we really enjoyed it."

"This was our 3rd trip to Folly Beach and our first stay at the Love Shack. The owner was super easy to work with prior to our stay and the home (although older) was very clean when we arrived. You cannot beat the location. Great proximity to town and you really can't get much closer to the beach unless you're staying on the sand. The yard was great for our yellow lab as well. My only caution is to be sure you know what 600 sq. ft. is like. It's tiny. We had two adults, two children and a dog and the space was just too tight for us. Although they have used every nook and crannie for storage to the best of their ability there is very limited closet space in one of the bedrooms and no dresser in the other. I would recommend for a couple but for our family of four it was just too tight."

"We stayed at the cottage for a week for our honeymoon -- it was wonderful! It's the perfect cozy size for two people, beautifully decorated in an eclectic style, and has all the amenities - a kitchen, beach chairs, washer/dryer, and great air conditioning for a respite from the heat. As others have mentioned, we especially enjoyed the lovely sunroom with huge windows looking out on trees -- you feel like you're in a garden or forest, even though it's just 2 blocks from the beach! It's a great location just a couple blocks from beach, shops, and restaurants, so great value. Off-street parking space included so no need to compete with beach-goers for parking. There was some acoustic guitar music from nearby that we found pleasant, but other than that it was very quiet. The owner was responsive to questions in advance of our stay, and we didn't have any need to contact him during our visit since everything went smoothly. We would highly recommend this spot and hope to go back!"

Perfect house for a family reunion and MUSC graduation
"Our family was looking for a large house for a family reunion so we could all be together. This gathering was also a celebration for our youngest sons MUSC graduation. We found the perfect place in "Estate of Folly". The house lent itself to having fun inside and out with decks on the front of the house and the back. The beach is just steps away and the sound is a quiet retreat for those who did not want the ocean and sand. The location was just perfect for us; not too far away from downtown Charleston, and anything you may need was available at the house or in Folly. Thanks for a memorable vacation and awesome place to gather a large family."
