Summer 2016 Vacation at Folly Beach

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable house for four people. Had everything we needed for a weeklong vacation in August. Super location - walk to beach, bike to town. Free use of all kinds of stuff, such as bikes, beach gear, nets, etc. John and Amy could not have been nicer or more helpful. Excellent sources of local knowledge, and super advice on when and where to go crabbing!

Relax, slow down. It's Folly

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close walk to the beach and not too far of a walk from everything in town yet nestled in a quiet part of the neighborhood. Several bikes available to cruise the island or make a run to Bert's for some snacks or an extra bottle of wine. The owners were super friendly and accommodating. Overall it was a great relaxing way to chill out at the beach for a few days

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised. Plenty of space for our family of four (kids 5 and 11), close to the beach, and a competitive weekly rate. House is cozy, has all of the essential amenities, and is in a fairly quiet area. Easy bike ride to downtown Folly, and not far from the "Washout" surfing spot and beach. It made a great home base for our week of beach and sightseeing fun. The owners were very welcoming, friendly, and generous - but never intrusive. Would not hesitate to recommend this house to families or small groups who want to be close to the beach and yet within an easy drive of other sights. Thanks!

Beautiful location and great home with kind owners

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property genuinely care about your stay. From the first day they were very kind and accommodating. The home was spacious, well kept, and less than a block away from the beach. Biking into town for breakfast was a joy and we were about 10min drive from downtown Charleston. I can't recommend this home and these owners more highly!

Beautiful home, close to the awesome beach!!

  • 4 of 5

This is home is exactly as represented on the VRBO site. It is lovely and bright, with lots of places to sleep and is a very quick walk to the beach! It is 1.5 miles from town, so walking there for lunch or supper would be somewhat difficult, so I would recommend having a car (and the parking in town can be hairy)! Also, you should be aware that the lodging is located upstairs so this would not be ideal for people who have trouble with stairs/climbing. While we like to be left on our own, it would have been nice to have been greeted and shown around the property. We were never greeted by the owners (which they apologized for). We would have liked to use the bikes but didn't know what the lock combinations were. It would have been nice to have been told the quickest way to walk to the beach or given hints for getting around. Also, a few more mirrors would be quite helpful. All in all, a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it for a beach and Charleston sight-seeing vacation!

relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Very clean! My husband and I spent a quiet relaxing week there in May. John and Amy were very friendly and helpful. I loved having the bikes available to ride all over the island. It is a short drive to downtown Charleston. I HIGHLY recommend the restaurant Husk for all! One of the best meals of my life! Folly beach is beautiful and only a short walk from this house. We hope to return someday. Thank you so much John and Amy!
