Waterfront house with issues and potential

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at Shelton's Folly the end of October 2015 for one week and must say in general the house and it's location were comfortable and offered potential total privacy (see below). However NOT as clean as I had expected a vacation venue to be. I felt the floors not bare feet worthy and a wise choice to wash dishes, pots/pans and utensils prior to use.

Real Estate agent showed up for a walk-through of property without notice and was declined access by writer as not adequately informed. The SECOND time a 24 notice was given by property manager (Fred Holland Realty). One reason we rented house was because there was no mention in literature or verbally by rental agent the house was on the market. Heads up to all who value unhindered privacy.

One of the bedrooms off the kitchen had water damage on the inside walls and wet rags were left on the floor in a fruitless attempt to absorb the leakage. In the same room was a half-bath which had black growth on the ceiling. The a/c in this bedroom was also non-functioning. We did not use this room and one of the guests chose to sleep on the Living Room couch instead.

The "Ocean Room" television was inoperable. After several conversations with the rental managing company (Fred Holland) and having been told 'someone would come by and look at it' - no one showed. Having had several rainy days, it would've been nice to sit and look at the water in the distance while simultaneously enjoying television viewing. (I will say here that television viewing and football was an unfortunate continuous and necessary presence to three of the four guests, therefore this dead set removed this room as a would-be substitute bedroom to the damp bunk room).

So, having read this review - NOT such a great recommendation until some money and effort placed into Shelton's Folly - an old girl with LOTS of potential.

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, steps away from the beach... Literally! We loved the location of this house... It's at the quieter end of Folly, which was perfect for our family. Within minutes of unpacking the kids had their feet in the sand. The older kids played frisbee and football on the beach while the parents watched from the boardwalk. Inside, the bunk room was the perfect spot for the boys while the girls chose the middle bedroom... Each with easy access to bathrooms. The master looks out over the beach and has it own bathroom. The family room and dining room are open and offer plenty of room for multiple families. The sun room has its own tv so the kids and adults each had their own space to relax after a busy day. The kitchen is well-appointed with lots of counter space. My favorite part of the house is the screened in porch off of the dining room... The perfect spot for my morning coffee!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Shelton's Folly and hope you will return again soon! Since you were there, we have added a 2nd refrigerator to help with food, ice and drink storage. From our own experience there with a crowd, this will prove to be an asset! We have plans for additional projects in the fall.

Our second stay...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this Folly Beach rental, and we loved it even more! The house was very clean and we noticed several improvements, including an additional half-bath and bunks in the front bedroom which were perfect for the kids. We were a large group, and there was plenty of space. The kitchen is fully stocked....just add groceries. Plus, there's plenty of parking, (and TVs) which pleased my husband. Although the weather was a bit chilly, the kids still enjoyed playing on the beach, which was like an extension of the back yard. I'm sure we'll get to use the heated outdoor shower for beach clean up, on our next visit when it's a bit warmer.

Absolutely enjoyed my time at Shelton's Folly in IOP. This is not my first time staying here. Yes, I am a repeat offender! But once you try it just keeps calling you back. It's very comfortable and spacious with an outstanding view and privacy. Beautifully kept inside and out. Can't wait to return, especially to my most favorite room in the house....sunroom (warm and yummy with the awesome view)!! It's a must to try!!

Owner's Response: So happy you are a repeat offender at Shelton's Folly. That sunroom or ocean room is my favorite also, but I do love the breakfast porch in the early morning. Please come soon and enjoy it all again and again. Thank you!

Just try it

  • 5 of 5

This home and this beach area is still very much like the coast was in the 50's and 60's for those teenage baby boomers.fortunate enough to get here. The home is comfortable and well maintained. It includes all amenities important to a memorable visit to Folly Beach and considering the number that it sleeps and the parking available, it's very cost effective at a strong quality level.

But moreover, it still feels like home at Folly Beach. Not many folks can experience that. Try it if you can. You'll not forget it.

Best spot on the island

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and could not be happier. The owners attention to detail makes the experience for a great stay. We love the easy access to the ocean and enjoy dining out on the deck watching the sun come up, the moon rises are equally breath taking in the evening. The kids spend most of the day on the beach and from the deck we can keep an eye on them.
