Fantastic property in great location. Plenty of room for family of five. Convenient to Harris Teeter right down the road, plus minutes to Charleston and Folly Beach. Kitchen well stocked and amenities were plentiful and had a personal touch. No stone left unturned. Only slight negative would be the sofa/loveseat. Cushions are new/slippery and we were sliding off the whole time! : ) But, we were not there to lay around on sofas, so it wasn't that big of a deal. Overall, a great place, to which we would return for sure.
Thank you so much for your kind words!! It makes up very happy to know you enjoyed our home and thanks for the input on the couch. We welcome all suggestions for improvement.
We also look forward to your next visit to Charleston!
Beautiful, clean and close to everything!
We enjoyed our stay at the Pelican very much. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. Close to Folley beach, conveniently located near great local restaurants and a short drive to beautiful Charleston. The neighborhood was great for my morning jogs and I enjoyed my coffee on the front porch. Plenty of room. Hospitable feel. Next time we visit, we will be staying longer...our only complaint was that the trip was too short!! A+++ rental. Highly recommend!
We love it!
There were 7 in our group and we found the the place to be comfortable for all of us. There was enough room to just hang around for those times when you don't want to go anywhere. It was easy to find and conveniently located to Charleston and Folly Beach. Everyone thought the beds were comfortable, including the trundles. The kitchen had all the essentials and all the appliances worked great. The only draw back is that the hot water can run out fairly quickly for a large group(small tank). But it does heat back up quickly. Time your showers. We visit Charleston often and would use this house again. The kids thought it was cool that the house was on stilts.
Thank you Philip for your awesome review! We are glad you all enjoyed your stay here at Laughing Pelican. We appreciate your comments and will definitely incorporate your thoughts into our future upgrades.
Thank you as well, for being 5-star guests!
I found the laughing pelican to be clean, comfortable and convenient!
I very much enjoyed my stay. Close to the beach close to town and not a single complaint. I only wish that I had brought my boat. Plenty of off street parking!
Thanks so much for your review, and we are glad you had a great stay. The boat launch is just down the road, so we hope to see you back soon, boat in tow! Charleston has some beautiful waterways to explore- and some great fishing too- black drum, sea trout, blue crab, and shrimp- just to name a few! Every month has something special going on in Charleston! Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your next stay even better! You were a fantastic guest!
