Magical Mystical Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love Folly Beach and wanted to seek out a rental as cool as the beach town itself. The Folly Treehouse is a perfect fit for anyone wishing to truly escape and find something different. There is plenty of space and it is extremely comfortable and it makes you feel as though you are hiding away in your own cabin. Dave is a local legend and one hell of a cool guy, and he genuinely cares about the experiences of his guests. We had a great time in both Folly and Charleston (you can Uber in and out if you enjoy cocktails as we do), and were so glad we chose the treehouse. The only regrets we had were that we couldn't stay longer and that our friends at home couldn't see the place, because they would have loved it. It is truly the perfect hideaway in the perfect place. We will be back!

Clarksville. OH

Great location, could use some updating

  • 3 of 5

The best thing the treehouse has going for it is it's location. It's on a quiet street but just a few blocks from either downtown Folley or the beach. And when you are on the rooftop deck, it really does feel like a treehouse!

We stayed for 4 nights and our word for the week here was "Quirky". It's an interesting set up but was quite comfortable. However, it could use a little updating. VRBO website says beach chairs and bikes are provided. We had to sort through the pile of chairs (all in various states of disrepair) that were under the outside steps to find 2 that might work. And the bikes were leaned up against the fence also in poor repair. We were glad we had brought our own bikes. We had to hold onto the ring behind the shower handle while pulling to get the shower to work. Dave did give us a heads up on this before we got there. The fridge is quite old and missing the top shelf. The air conditioning consists of 2 window units, one for each floor. The one on the first floor, where we slept, was so loud we couldn't run it at night.

While on the surface, the house was clean, it really could use a deep cleaning. We found ourselves washing glasses and dishes before we used them as they seemed dusty. The shower curtain needs to be changed or hit with bleach pretty hard as it has mold growing on the bottom of it.

While it was all a bunch of relatively minor things, really our only problem was that we had to pay over $200/night to stay here. If this had been $140-150/ night, none of this would have bothered us. But by the time you pay the daily rate, tax, $75 VRBO fee and the $100 cleaning and linens fee, it was $210/night. This is not a $210/night property. Oh and we got 3 bath towels for 2 of us for 4 nights. Luckily a washer and dryer are provided. (and laundry soap, which was appreciated)

This has nothing to do with Dave or the treehouse, but I'll never pay the $75 VRBO fee again. There are plenty of ways to find good places to stay, without being gouged like that. In all the times Iv'e used VRBO, this was the first time I've been charged that fee.

Wish we could have rated this better for you Dave, but we have to be honest. With some clean up and updates of a few things, your ratings should improve.

The Treehouse is awesome! We had a wonderful stay. :)

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse was a super great place to stay for our honeymoon! It is close enough to the beach to take a quick bike ride, and far enough away from the downtown part of Folly Beach that it's quiet and peaceful. The house itself is quirky and fun. It's also comfortable and we slept well. There is a great variety of restaurants nearby, and a well-stocked little grocery store.

David was really sweet and helpful. We felt that if we needed anything, he would be on it in a heartbeat, but he wasn't at all intrusive.

Overall, we would highly recommend the Treehouse for a fun getaway to Folly Beach!

Pretty darn cool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Tree House at Folly Beach. David was a courteous host, gave us a full tour, had great suggestions and was fun to talk to. The house is cozy, curious, well-appointed and comfortable. The roof top deck is especially nice.

I recommend this one very highly & will be sure to visit again.

Daves Tree House is the BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love Dave! We love Folly! WE LOVE THE TREE HOUSE!!! This place is perfect! It's clean, and the perfect size. It's away from the main stream of things so it's a quiet oasis yet a close walk to the beach and the main strip in town! Dave is a fantastic owner!! He was super helpful with everything and anything we needed, and just a genuine and great person in general! This was our second stay and if someone else doesn't grab this gem we are definitely returning again!! If you want the fully folly experience this place is a must!!

Unique home and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the treehouse! It was so unique and felt as if we were really staying in a treehouse. So close to everything (a short walk to town and even shorter walk to the beach), and just far enough to not be affected by the noise from town. Dave was great, he was very accommodating and answered all of our questions. Also, an easy drive to Charleston. We went multiple times and enjoyed the Marketplace, Magnolia Plantation, Ft. Sumter, and several great restaurants. First timers to South Carolina but definitely won't be our last. Love the laid back atmosphere and beautiful people!
