Excellent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is great. All the rooms were clean and better than pictured. The kitchen had a lot of knives and cookware for our family. And the large table was perfect. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving at this house with 10 people. It is a lovely house where everyone felt right at home. There are plenty of DVDs, books, and games to keep you busy even on a rainy day. There was plenty of room for all of us and beautiful view of the ocean. The pictures are very accurate, it is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked, we had plenty of dishes, glasses, and cooking items to prepare our meal (we ordered food and reheated it). We would definitely recommend it and we would love to go back sometime!

House is in a great location. Well kept and everything provided that you would need. Enjoyed being able to spend the morning on the deck in the comfortable chairs. Many of our party utilized the rooftop viewing deck. Many great memories made at this house. It is only one house down from the public beach access which is very easy to get to. I cannot say enough great things about this property. We felt as though we walked right into our own home it was so comforting and so accessible. Lottie is always responsive with all questions and helpful no matter what the need. We will definitely look to come back here if we bring a large number of people back to folly which we hope to do. :)

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! You will not be disappointed if you stay at this beach house! What you see in the pictures is very accurate. The house was very clean and had lots of space. The owners were very nice and great to work with. Renting process was smooth and easy. Even though this isn't listed as being beach/ocean front you still have a great view of both! Our family would definitely stay again!

Great place for our grand-daughters first trip to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 days at a great location. The house was spotless and everything was as advertised. The open floor plan works great for a large group although we spent most of our time on the beach. Lottie is a great host and the property is top-notch. Definitely a keeper.
