Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Another of Folly's Best Rentals. The Vitamin Sea can give you that healthy dose of coastal comfort that you've been missing. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is a throwback to more classic beach cottages and sits just across the street from the sands of Folly Beach. The wood used throughout the home provides a whisper of childlike memories that have been wonderfully aged by seasons of salty air. At the front of the home is a screened-in porch with partial views of the ocean. On the backside is a larger deck with a sunshade and plenty of room for gathering or grilling on the new gas grill.

Inside, everything is classic wood. This is a beautiful example of a classic Folly Beach House. Only the best linens, comfortable bedding and our assurance of a clean and comfortable stay are awaiting you!

The home is equipped with a full kitchen and living room with a small dining area set between the two. In addition to the three bedrooms mentioned above is an adorable bunk room that overlooks the back deck. The room is furnished with a bunk tucked into the corner and some closet space. This little gem completes the sailing ship illusion. The public beach access is just a few steps away from the Vitamin Sea so you get to mix all the luxuries of a day on the beach with the convenience of having the Atlantic Ocean at your fingertips. Stargazing, beach combing, sun bathing, swimming and any other beach activity you may be looking forward to is right outside your door.

The Vitamin Sea is located ten short blocks away from the crowds on Center Street so the peace and quiet of the ocean breeze rustling the fronds of the Palmetto trees while waves lap on shore is yours to savor. However, all of the shopping, dining and entertainment of Center Street is only a short drive or bike ride away.

Well behaved house-broken, flea treated dogs are welcome with approval. Please include the breed and size of the pet you want to bring when you inquire.

***The owner's adult children live in the cottage behind the house. They occasionally utilize the laundry facilities located below the main house. They are very quiet and respectful of common space, but we believe we must notify potential tenants of their presence prior to inquiring. It is also important to note that they have a very friendly, but very large mastiff dog***

Flamingos everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

Although this house (named Vitamin Sea) looks dull from the outside, the inside is a well decorated beach bungalow that bouys spirits for the whole stay. The bungalow is only a few hundred feet from the public beach access. The bungalow is well equipped with all amenities. My only reservation is that curious grandkids need to be watched around all the decorations.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation! This was our second time staying at Vitamin Sea. The house was very clean and nice when we arrived. Had problems with the washing machine, but the owners/property manager were very quick to respond and offered to pick up, wash, fold and return our laundry until the machine was fixed. What great service! Thank you for sharing your home with us and hope to stay again next year!

Vitamin Sea- charming but in major need of maintenance

  • 2 of 5

Before I write a bad review of the Vitamin Sea I want to commend the people at Folly's Best for their help. Melissa responded quickly when we were unable to access the property on 6/11. The cipher lock will only work if the keyhole is in the upright position which would be beneficial knowledge to renters.

The house is decorated beautifully for a beach house. We loved the location and charm of Vitamin Sea. It should not be advertised as having a partial view of the ocean. There is NO ocean view at all.

The door handles in Bedroom #2 continued to fall off during our stay which we tried to fix.

The shower in Bath #2 did not turn off after use. We called Folly's Best and had a quick service call to turn off the water. The owners decided to send their own plumber who was 3 hours late from the allocated time and proceeded to argue with the FB service technician. The shower now leaks profusely and we have been afraid to use since Tuesday limiting us to 1 shower inside.

Our son's friend was locked in Bath #2 twice during our stay as the door handle would not open- once for @ 20 minutes as we were on the front porch.

The back deck is in horrible shape and could be hazardous as decks are rotten and nails are treacherous.

We were told that we would hear directly from the owners on Wednesday yet have heard nothing.

Sadly, we will not return to Vitamin Sea. This is our 4th summer vacation at Folly. While adorable and nostalgic this property needs tons of general maintenance.

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay. We had a great time. The beach access is very close and Folly Beach was great. However it would have been nice to have a table big enough for 8 people but we made it work. The gas grill is in really bad shape , it needs to be replaced. Other than the grill the house was is excellent condition. Ate at Snappy Jacks and it was amazing.

Flamingo House a Hit with My Family

  • 5 of 5

While it was a rainy Easter this Spring, we made the best of it at the Flamingo Cottage. Place was cute and directly across from a beach access point and central to everything. We ended up using the front porch for Easter Sunday Brunch and the Back Porch for afternoon beverages and simply enjoying beach life. We even hosted our annual Easter Egg hunt with my wife's now famous 'Cascarone's' - which are dyed eggs filled with confetti...The kitchen met our needs and loved the plush towels...all good for this family

Perfect little beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is exactly what we were looking for and envisioned for our stay! It is a quaint cottage with clean rooms. No real complaints other than the ceiling in one of the bedrooms had water damage and looked like it was in need of repair. Loved the location and the price. When you think of beach cottage this fits the mold!
