Perfect location - A few minutes to beach a few more to town

  • 5 of 5

Loves this house. 3 minutes or less walk to the beach and 10 minutes or less to downtown Folly, which is so helpful b/c finding a place to park either at the beach or downtown can be tough, particularly on weekends. We only used our car to explore Charleston and Sullivans one day, as well as to get to the airport. The house is clean and well decorated. The only issue was that the pack n play was not in good condition but we bought a new one while down there and owner reimbursed us (so there is a brand new one there now). The other things for kids was super helpful - high chair, small table and chairs in the kitchen. What a great house.

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Charleston or Folly Beach but this house was exactly as advertised. It is convenient to everything on Center Street, the local store and an easy walk to the beach. A very quiet neighborhood. Easy drive to downtown and plantations. Nice one level home, which was perfect for my 81 year old in-laws. If you want/need beach chairs bring them with you. Also, my English wife and mother-in-law really missed a tea pot of any sort. We enjoyed our 5 night stay and will have lasting memories.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time at Sweet Retreat and that it was comfortable for your family. Regarding the teapot, we had an incident where someone accidentally turned on the wrong burner and the pot was empty! Thankfully they caught it before damage was done. Needless to say, we removed it from the home. Again, many thanks for your kind review and we hope you will visit again soon!

Decent but not welcoming

  • 3 of 5

Overall this was a decent place but there are some things that would resurrect it from the "not again" list. First, replace the pillows that are flat and lifeless. While you are at it a less bouncy bed would be great too. Some beach toys would be a fun treat for families. Some of the rental homes we have stayed at (and we have stayed at more than 10) had some extras that make it feel more homey or at least cover the essentials of a hotel. Examples would be a stocked pantry with some snacks, suggestions for places to go / things to do, a less "flaky" grill, some water bottles, etc. Many of the homes have offered these niceties and with what we pay it would be reasonable to ask. Also, there is no filtered water as the description calls out. Folly Beach is a great place to stay, I just would spend my money at another home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay at The Sweet Retreat, and for your feedback. We take great pride in our status as a 5-star property on HomeAway, and work diligently to ensure our property offers guests a comfortable stay. We believe our property offers more amenities, modern conveniences, comfort and space than many of the rentals that are comparably priced. With regard to providing a "stocked pantry" of snacks and water bottles, we have not found this to be customary in rental homes. However one amenity that our guests enjoy is the stocked fridge of condiments and spices. We also go a step above by providing 4 pillows per bed and 4 additional (20 total) so our guests are sure to find their choice in style and comfort. Our visitors have also enjoyed our Weber grill(s). Due to the harsh beach elements we regularly purchase a new grill or replace grates as we did in Feb of this year. In summary, the feedback of our guests that has enabled us to main the 5 star rating for the last 8 years and certainly will reflect upon your comments. Thanks again for your stay, and we hope that you find future rental properties that meet all of your needs. Paige Sweet Sweet Retreat

Great choice for vacationing family

  • 5 of 5

The home is easy to find and in a great location. Just a couple of blocks to the ocean and not far from downtown Folly Beach. The home was very clean with an updated and spacious kitchen. The living room was also spacious and comfortable. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms were good. The washer and dryer was an added plus. Also convenient was the outdoor shower for cleaning off after time at the beach. The porch was also a hit. One member of our party is allergic to cats and dogs. The no pets rule was definitely a plus for us.

I recommend this property!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home was comfortable as well as beautifully decorated. The location was terrific as it was within walking distance to several restaurants, bars, shopping and the beach. The pictures were spot on and the home was exceptionally clean which was a "must" for us. The screened-in porch was a great place to relax albeit an extremely cold weekend. We would highly recommend this home and would give it a "five" on a scale of one to five.
