Overview

About the property

Folly Beach/Downstairs Unit/1 Bedroom/1 Bath/Sleeps 4/Pet Friendly/Fenced yard

Location is key and this rental is perfectly located to easily walk to all things Folly! Once you park your car there will be no need to get back in it, unless you are leaving the Island. Described as a 1 bedroom, this rental actually can sleep 4 with the addition of a quiet sleeping nook that hosts a full bed. Great for small families on a budget or couple's retreat! Pictures do not do this rental justice as it is much larger then it appears. Open, airy living area that comfortably seats 4 along with dining inside. Fully appointed kitchen with everything you need to stay in and prepare a meal. Comcast cable, flat screen TV in living room, additional TV in Queen bedroom. Covered Shaded porch outside with dining table and seating. Fenced in yard. Outdoor shower with hot/cold water. 1/2 block from Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Grocery and 2 blocks back from the beach. Beach Cart, 2 Beach Chairs provided. This rental is not a single family home but a downstairs, ground level apartment.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE DOWNSTAIRS GROUND LEVEL UNIT OF A TWO STORY HOME. While it is not a basement...it is on the first floor and you will hear some foot traffic above. The above space is lived in full time by a family of 4. The upstairs unit uses the back entrance and Tucked Away uses the front. Please also note that all parking out front is owned by the city of Folly Beach. We can not guarantee parking directly in front of the unit although there usually is ample space. The City of Folly Beach owns all easements. You are allowed to park anywhere on Folly as long as you are parallel to the flow of traffic, all four tires off the road, not blocking a driveway or fire hydrant.

WE ARE PET FRIENDLY, HOWEVER WE HAVE A LIMIT OF JUST TWO PETS. OUR PET FEE IS $50 PER PET. IF WANTING TO BRING YOUR PET, PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR ABOUT SIZE AND BREED BEFORE BOOKING. PLEASE ALSO KNOW YOUR PET AND THEIR ANXIETY LEVEL WHEN LEFT ALONE. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR PET IF IT BARKS OR WHINES INCESSANTLY WHEN LEFT UNATTENDED INSIDE OR OUT. WE ARE DOG OWNERS AND AS DOG OWNERS YOU KNOW YOUR DOGS PERSONALITY AND BEHAVIOR. DOGS BARKING TO ALERT IS ONE THING...SEPARATION ANXIETY IS ANOTHER. WE DO HAVE NEIGHBORS AND THIS IS AN APARTMENT WITHIN A HOME. EVEN IF PET IS CRATED...WE CAN NOT HAVE IT CONTINUOUSLY BARKING. IT'S NOT GOOD FOR YOUR PET AND IT'S NOT GOOD FOR OTHER GUESTS. WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP IN KEEPING THIS A PET FRIENDLY. RENTAL. IF YOU DO HAVE MULTIPLE PETS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING, WE MANAGE A WONDERFUL SINGLE FAMILY HOME WITH A HUGE FENCED IN BACK YARD THAT IS VERY PRIVATE AND WOULD OFFER A RELAXING RETREAT FOR DOGS AND OWNERS.

About Dianne Ray

Living and raising our two wonderful children on Folly Beach is a dream come true for my husband Michael and myself. We are so very grateful to have the opportunity to share a portion of our home with you. We have been offering our downstairs rental to guests since 2010 and to our delight, have forged lasting relationships with souls from all over the world. Michael was born and raised in Charleston, while I enjoyed growing up an hour and a half inland with my horse in Orangeburg, SC. Michael and I met and both graduated from Clemson University in 1996. We quickly settled in Charleston and began our life together. We have 2 busy kids, a Folly spaniel(Springer with a splash of Lab) and two outdoor cats. We are beyond grateful for our blessings....big and small.

Dianne Ray purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Dianne Ray chose Folly Beach

What makes this bungalow unique

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

My wife and I were disappointed. Pictures looked better than the real thing. It felt like a bunker with 2 little windows high above our heads with absolutely no view. The bathroom is smaller than the average 2 star motel and the kitchen was small as well. The futon in the living room is very uncomfortable and difficult to get up from. The foot noise from the people upstairs was annoying and the heating system was much to be desired. This unit is overpriced for what you get. The cement floor was cold and the the so called fenced in yard was ugly as was the front porch. And the little flying gnat like bugs were annoying as well. We enjoyed Folly Beach and Charleston as always as this was our fourth trip here but our accommodations were disappointing. I was fooled by the reviews from people that must not have an idea of what is acceptable and what is not. Never again.

Owner's Response: This is a tough and I personally feel unfair review of this property:( Unfortunately this is the first time we are hearing our guests were disappointed. Not once during or after were we contacted. We feel we honestly and accurately describe the property in detail and photos. This is a ground level unit, it does have 5 windows, they are not full sized, but allow in light and fresh air when desired while also offering privacy. This rental is located on East Cooper, which is 2 blocks back from the ocean. It does not have any views and does not advertise that it does, but it is a very quick walk to the ocean or river park. Our guests have really enjoyed having the outdoor covered porch and small fenced in yard. This is a pet friendly unit. The yard is safe and secure for you pets to be let off leash to stretch their legs. The yard is shaded with limited plantings. We keep the ground covered in mulch. We treat the yard for insects quarterly and during the hot summer months we treat for mosquitoes...however nothing deters the gnats when they are out:( The floor in this unit is concrete, great for the summer months .really keeps it nice and cool. We have a few rugs we lay down, but the floor is not heated. The bathroom is small but well thought out with lots of shelving for personal items. I've seen other rentals advertise, if your a defensive end or sumo wrestler then this is not the space for you. That rings true for this unit...it was originally designed to host guests of average size. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious for most guests needs...it is small but has everything you need to help prepare a meal. Keep in mind, this unit is designed for a couple or small family, it is not huge, but has plenty of space and seating. The futon was purchased less then two years ago and is high quality. We have a futon in case a small child needs a place to sleep. There's other comfortable seating provided as well, two chairs with an ottoman, great for watching the flat screen TV. This rental is a wonderful value for what is provided. We manage 10 other properties here on Folly beach and this one is very accurately and competitively priced. If you are looking for a more private setting then you need to look for a free standing, single family home...which does cost more. AS ALWAYS...our phone numbers are provided. We are quick to respond to calls or text and check the emails regularly.

Cute little grotto!

Lovely little grotto tucked under the cutest house. Easy walk to town and the beach. Conveniently located to everything but quiet. Would definitely stay there again.

Tucked Away

  • 3 of 5

The rental is OK for a short stay, but would not stay an extended period. Rooms were a bit musty smelling. Good location to Folly Beach restaurants, beach etc. Convenient to downtown Charleston.

Owner's Response: We are always working to improve our little "Tucked Away" and always appreciate feedback. We have not recently had any complaints about a musty smell, but it is something we monitor here on the beach, especially in a ground level space. We have installed split system heating and air units that help maintain humidity levels in this tropical and humid environment. We have additionally added a dehumidifier that guests can use depending on the weather:) We have the furniture and rugs professional steam cleaned several times a year which helps keep the space fresh and clean. This is a short term rental, however we do have guests that come annually and spend a month and really enjoy their time here.

Perfect place for us + dogs

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Folly and we will be back! "Tucked away" was an extremely conveienent location- we parked and didn't leave again until we ventured into Charlestown a couple of days later. Close to beach, Bert's (small, quirky little local grocery with all neccisities) and the main strip with restaurants/ stores. Everywhere and everyone was so dog friendly! We were able to walk everywhere and take them with us every step of the way. Most restaurants/bars/shops would even have treats for them or bring them over a water bowl. The yard at "tucked away" was perfect for our dogs when we weren't out and about, and the outdoor shower and spray hose were great for easy post beach clean

up! There was plenty of space inside for my husband and I as well as our two large dogs

+ crates and had everything that we needed during our stay. So in love with this little town and "tucked away" was the perfect place to help us experience it! Can't wait to return!
