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.

Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Great location, comfortable, very spacious. A group of 14 of us (+ 2 dogs) enjoyed our week here. There were very few times when the house felt crowded, even when most of us were in the kitchen or living room at the same time. The location is great: wonderful beach views, with just a short 100 foot walk to public beach access. The porches -- on 3 levels, with a wraparound on the lower level -- added even more space.

The location is far enough from town that it's not really practical to walk to the restaurants and bars (and parking is horrendous in Folly Beach), but that means the beaches are relatively quiet and relaxed.

Perfectly perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for three nights as a surprise for my moms 50th birthday. It is exactly as pictured. And steps from the beach. The public access is just around the corner. MAYBE a 2 min walk. If that. The views are exceptional. We even saw dolphins one day swimming and playing. We walked to find shells every day. Though it was too cold to go swimming, the teens in our group gave boogie boarding a shot anyways and had a blast trying. The locals are so so so nice. They always stopped on the beach to say hello. And even drop a hit of where the best place to eat was. Or where we should go to see new things in the downtown Charleston area. Loggerheads bar and grille was awesome. Their food was very good and their craft beer selection was nice. We also ate a couple more places in town and we don't have one bad thing to say. Every place had the nicest people and great service. There's a hidden gem about 10 min outside of town the bowens island restaurant the line was out the door. And hidden down a random gravel road but they have all you can eat oyster options. The houses on the road are HUGE and beautiful. Back to the house though, it has everything you could think of that you may need. And in the "basement" area there's beach chairs, kites, sand toys, boogie boards, volleyball. All to use. They even have a small highchair booster and a baby gate for little kiddos. The kitchen table seats 10 comfortably and then extra seating right near by for others as well. There's ample sleeping places. The tv was very easy to use and switch to the DVD player. I don't have one single complaint about renting this house and I would 100% recdimmend this house to others. The drive into the town is about 6 minutes. Down the road. But the drive is pretty. To see the houses. And the ocean. The community is very safe we have seen the police driving around daily. Always waving and keeping a look out. If you go into downtown Charleston we recommend the brown dog deli for some really unique and awesome sandwiches. There was a line waiting for them to open when we arrived and we just happened to give it a shot. If we had more time we would def be going back to try another menu item. Very good!! Thank you so much for allowing us to experience your beach home. It was perfectly perfect.

Bari S

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful Christmas at the house. This is our second time renting for the Holiday and it was the most relaxing and stress free time ever! Just watching our 2 granddaughters play on the beach was worth a million words. The house was so very comfortable and plenty of room for our family of 10 plus our 2 dogs. Access to the beach was so easy and this end of the island is so nice and quiet. Rita's Restaurant in downtown Folly has the most amazing food and when we were not eating at the house we were eating there. Great place to just relax and unwind with family. Even though house has no elevator it was easier to access from the back stairs as they were not as steep.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 stay here for a friend's wedding in Charleston and we could not have been happier! The house is very spacious and we loved being so close to the beach yet also a short cab ride to the Folly restaurants and bars. Lotte was extremely accommodating and a pleasure to work with, we would definitely book here again next time in Folly!
