About Cary Fichtner-Vu
.We are a family from Virginia with 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren ( hopefully more on the way). Our eldest daughter went to College of Charleston and moved to Folly, married and had a family ( she lives just a few blocks away). We all fell in love with the Charleston area and the charm of the low country and stay at the house almost every month. We love enjoying Folly with friends and family, love the exceptional cuisine and restaurant scene, but especially love the peace of the beach!
Cary Fichtner-Vu purchased this House in 2012
Why Cary Fichtner-Vu chose Folly Beach
Superb location within the block of Folly Beach therefore you can walk to all the Folly Beach restaurants and festivities. The beach is 2 blocks away, during Memorial Day to Labor Day is also a guarded beach. Downtown historic Charleston is only 12 minutes away, the airport 25 minutes away. This house is well equipped for cooking and comfortably furnished with family antiques and contemporary furniture. Both levels are cherry Brazilian hardwood floors and beds are very comfortable. My favorite thing about our home is the outdoor private shower!
What makes this House unique
Walk to town and to the beach. Off street parking! Steps away from everything yet quiet and peaceful. Love all the exceptional Folly festivals, love the naturalness of Folly Beach and love being minutes to downtown Charleston. Truly an exceptional place!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely Well-Appointed Home-Away From Home
Wonderful spacious home in perfect location. Five minute walk to the beach, 3 minutes to downtown Folly. The beds are so luxurious and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped for any cooking you choose to undertake during your stay. The Host , Cary , is very resposive to any questions that might arise and is gracious and accessible. This Folly getaway feels like you are at home while on vacation. The best of both worlds. We will definitely be returning for another stay.
Thank you so very much for your kind review. We love Folly snd enjoy sharing the Folly experience with our guests. Come back again!
It's big! It's in a great location! It's clean! There are a lot of rules! But it's good!
Our guests should expect well cared for and clean home. The "rules" are a result of damage or Folly Beach City ordinances. Proactively, we have rules, so that our guests enjoy our homes with consideration for the next guests.
Great location - plenty of room
Really nice location - walking distance to beach, restaurants, ice cream/coffee shop and mini-market. It was perfect for our family (two kids 3 and 8) and my brother who traveled with us. Loved the shower under the house (hot water) so our kids could clean up before going into house after coming back from the beach. If we were in the area we would consider staying here again.
Thank you for your kind review. WE LOVE the shower underneath too! Walking to everything is wonderful, leave the car in the driveway and just enjoy FOlly and the beach. I have many folks who come back numerous times, we hope you come back too!
Peaceful, very clean, well appointed and walk to everything
Everything was easy...check in, house is gorgeous and comfortable, walk to everything, weather beautiful, check out easy......this is the way to live.
Thank you.... exactly what we wish for every guest :)
Perfect Beach Vacation Spot
Stayed at the house just after Christmas and through New Years. Perfect atmosphere, just what I needed after a stressful holidays. All conversations and rental agreement discussions were incredibly professional and welcoming. The owner was excited to hear of my looking forward to being down in Charleston again and recommended some EXCELLENT restaurants for me to check out while in the area. Was an incredibly easy walk to the beach and the center of town, which was perfect for the Folly Beach New Year's Festivities. Everything was handled promptly and professionally, no regrets or complaints. Will stay here again without a doubt, and this time, for longer! Looking forward to the next time.
Thank you for your review. We love sharing Folly Beach and Charleston with folks. We are fortunate to have many repeat guests, love to add you to the list! Our goal is always for our guests to have a great experience. Come back soon!
Great house but wouldn't rent again!
I thought this was finally a house we would rent again and again. The house was wonderful! Very clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed and great location! We left it in mint condition. "The cleaners were so pleased how you left the house"-the owners words. However, I will never rent this property again.
The owner was very accommodating until time for the refund! After numerous emails back and forth (six questioning the whereabouts of the refund), 7 weeks later, I received my refund. She was nice at first regarding the refund, then the emails became accusatory and unfriendly. Very disappointing.
The renter is a scammer and was caught. She asked for two additional leases and to have her deposit put toward the leases. Month later she cancelled the leases asking for her deposit. The deposit was sent , but she claimed not to receive it, we sent another deposit via PayPal which she claimed wouldn't open and demanded another check , which we did..... and she cashed the check AND the PayPal. I had to threaten contacting the authorized in order to get one of the two payments back. If you'd like to see the emails, I will provide them all. Please ask.
