This cozy studio was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The cafe downstairs has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and great food. Walking distance from the beach. We will stay again!

This place!! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

For extremely selfish reasons, I didn’t want to review this beach town gem. Wanted to keep it all to myself. 😂 We came for a 3 night stay just after Christmas. It is a sweet and charming loft apartment above a breakfast/lunch restaurant (which, is amazing all by itself). Spotless and well equipped studio that doesn’t feel like a studio. It’s big, by studio standards - made to feel even larger with great dormers that function as cozy reading nooks. It has plenty of windows making it a bright and airy space. It’s a short, easy walk to the beach - with lots of fun dining and shopping options along the way. The owner is attentive but not intrusive. And, in spite of the bustling, thriving restaurant below - there’s really very little noise. For me, the little we could hear, were happy sounds...... the preparation of great coffee and yummy breakfast I was going to order soon! Thanks for the hospitality!! Absolutely loved our time with you!

Perfect Weeklong Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was fantastic. I definitely overpacked, the apartment came with EVERYTHING, including a growler and a baby gate, which we use at home to contain our pugs when we're away. We used the beach chairs every time we went to the beach, as well as the beach towels and cooler. The beach was a very manageable walking distance, and I loved that we could walk onto the main stretch of Folly Beach but didn't ever hear it from the loft. We also barely heard any noise from The Lost Dog...we were surprised how loud it was inside when we at there on our last day! It's very easy to get to Charleston from Folly Beach as well. This was our first time on Folly Beach, and the first time we brought our dogs on vacation with us. The experience honestly could not have been better. We all felt right at home at the loft and will always have great memories of our stay there.

Great Stay above a great place to eat!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and 3 month old) had a great stay at the loft. It was extremely CLEAN and QUIET. You do not hear any of the noise of the restaurant up in the loft. The Loft is fully loaded with everything you need: beach chairs, towels, laundry (and soap), kitchen supplies, etc. It was a perfect location to be near the water but just a short drive away from Charleston (15min). Folly beach is an eclectic, kinda dirty, beach bum town.The loft is walking distance from the beach and Folly Fishing Pier. Very pleased with out stay and would definitely return.

Perfect vacation spot for dog owners!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from visiting Folly Beach with our golden retriever. We stayed at the studio above The Lost Dog Cafe and had such an amazing time. The owner was very nice and we loved being just minutes away from the public beach access, as well as, downtown. If you don't want to leave your four legged family member home when you go on vacation, Folly Beach is the place to go!

Great little place in Folly Beach :)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days and wanted to be able to bring our dog. This place was just "perfect" for that! The loft is just a walk to the beach right down the strip where restaurants/bars are located. Our dog really had a good time with his first experience to the beach. We had a great time and would definitely want to go back!
