About The Owner

We have so many wonderful family memories at Folly Beach!!! Our children grew up going to Folly and loved digging in the sand, boogie boarding and riding bikes on the beach. We have had people from age 3-83 and everyone has a blast!

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

What makes this house unique

There is a closet under the house where we store beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and lots of sand toys. This house has been totally renovated in 2016.

Love this house

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful four generation family vacation! The house was great and fit all eleven of us comfortably. We spent most of our time on the beach and decks. It was close enough to everything we needed. We rented a golf cart and loved exploring Folly Beach. The only reason that I am giving four stars instead of five is because one afternoon during our stay the AT&T guy came to change the wifi and we were not given ANY notice. We had to call the property manager to make sure we should let the guy in. The job took him all afternoon and some of us had to stay in the house while he worked. But we are planning on coming back in 2017!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! So glad that you and your family had a great time at our beach house and that you plan to come stay again next year! I am very sorry that your were inconvenienced by the AT&T workers. In the very unlikely event that we have to have work done, we always schedule it for our turn over day so not to bother our guests. Unfortunately, AT&T did not call us first to schedule a day. We do also list our home phone number on the VRBO website so if there is a problem during your stay you can always call us as well. When you do rebook, please remind me of this incident and I will be happy to give you a discount!

The Best, Again and Again

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time to stay at this house and it will not be our last. We have stayed here 4 out of the last five years. Each year we think we are going to make other plans, but we end up coming back again and again. The recent renovations only made a great place better. The new boardwalk out to the beach, the new outdoor shower room, the renovated kitchen, the addition of a 3rd new bathroom, the new flooring and the new upper and lower decks are all wonderful. It was a great place for a family to stay before. It's the PERFECT place now! Any size family from 6-20 will find it comfortable, affordable and IDEAL for a family getaway. A short 7 block walk or 2 minute drive to downtown puts you in touch with several good restaurants. We recommend FB Crab Shack for Dinner, Rita's for lunch and the Lost Dog for breakfast. Everything is close and you literally never have to leave the island once you arrive. Charleston is only minutes away. The beach is right out your door and during the week days it's almost deserted. The owners are a delight to work with and the folks at Fred Holland Realty are quick to address any problems. Now you know why we keep coming back year after year!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. The location is perfect, right on the ocean with a great view all the time. It is hard to imagine a better location! The new walkover and outdoor shower are a real plus. We stayed for a week with three generations and 13 family members in all, ranging in age from 18 months to 61 years. This was our fist ever vacation for the entire family. It was great for the little kids to be so close to the beach. We didn't have to lug everything so far! The owners were very nice when I had questions during the reservation process. They were quick to respond. We had no problems with the realty rental company either - they were a little slow to respond - but I know it was a very busy time for them. All in all, they were friendly and helpful. The house has a ton of beach toys and chairs and the kitchen has everything anyone would need. The laminate floors are easy to clean which is good since there is always sand. The house is so close to Charleston that it is easy to go in for sightseeing there. Folly Road has plenty of grocery stores for quick access, too. We also bought fresh seafood down at Crosby's on Folly Road I liked the fact that the house is a few blocks down from Center Street. It seems to be quieter, but you can still get to the center of town by walking. This house also has great parking and a wonderful area under the house for sitting, storing extra chairs, coolers, toys, etc.. We would highly recommend this house! The ramp is great, too, for those with back or hip issues. We would definitely want this house again and would definitely go through Fred Holland Realty again.

Oceanfront Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

This recently renovated house has everything! Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and beach accessories are provided by owners. I love the outdoor shower! We rented bikes in town and road on beach and streets taking in all the lovely sights. Folly Beach has a well known laid back atmosphere and staying at this house made it easy for everyone to relax. We're coming back next year!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We love this comfortable Folly Beach House! After 15 straight days of drizzle and gray skies in Atlanta, we headed to Folly and found clear blue, sunny skies and expansive beaches! The kitchen is well-stocked with everything we need to prepare our favorite fresh fish from Crosby's. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide ocean views from wherever you are in the house. Dining at the window table or out on the deck ---ahhhh---so relaxing, watching for dolphins, shrimpboats and surfers. The beds are comfy and love that claw-foot tub! It's a mile from the pier which makes for a spectacular sunset walk. You wake up to sunrise in the east and watch the sunset in the west. We rented bikes in town and had a blast riding on the beach's hard-pack sand....which is also perfect for Bocce. The WIFI makes it convenient for my husband to have a 'workcation' ---but only if necessary. Love it!

Great rental

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house and the house next door for our wedding. Our bridal party stayed in this house, and it was perfect. Everyone was comfortable, and 2 full bathrooms made it easy to get ready, etc. We also liked the boogie boards and beach chairs that come with the house - nobody was from South Carolina so we didn't have to buy that stuff.

I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because the real estate agency that rents this property was a NIGHTMARE to work with - rude employees, unclear booking procedures, and an overall unwillingness to work with me or answer my questions.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at our beach house! We try to make sure we have everything available to ensure a great time! I am sorry that you had a negative experience with the rental company. I have forwarded your comments to the owner, so she is aware of the situation. We do list our phone number on the VRBO web site so if a renter is unhappy they are able to contact us right away so we can intervene.
