Guestbook comments from the manager

Great! *****

Left on 07/04/2013 for a stay in June 2013


If one wishes a large modern home with all the accoutrements this place is not for you. But if you wish a place on the ocean with a phenomenal deck and screened in porch at a great value this place cannot be beat. We spent a week in June, 2013 at the home (our 10th season at Folly Beach) and never had more ocean and sand friendly accommodations at such a reasonable price.

Ocean front splendor

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, comfortable house with all the amenities you need. We had a girls weekend and had plenty of space and sleeps 6 people comfortably. Nice screened in porch to listen to the waves or view the beautiful surroundings. Two decks with furniture and a swing to watch the beautiful sunrise. Well lit steps for safety.m Close to everything. Look no further, it's a wonderful home away from home.

Good times! Only one bad experience!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The house was comfortable and the deck and swing overlooking the ocean were marvelous! The only drawback to our visit was the presence of roaches. Several appeared during our weeklong stay. The rental costs were certainly enough to include that the house be sprayed before our arrival. We enjoyed everything else very much!

Owner's Response: Not uncommon on the beach... This property, along with all others I manage, is on a professional quarterly treatment schedule. While it is not uncommon during extreme swings in weather such as rain or high heat to suddenly see more. We would have been delighted to offer a repeat treatment to the property would we have known. Hopefully next time you can return and we can spoil you to a 5 star stay! - iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team

Someplace Else is the ONLY Place to be!

  • 5 of 5

We've been home less than a week from our stay at Someplace Else, and I am pining to return! Such a comfortable home, and the outdoor space is unbeatable. My 81-year old mother was with us and is NOT a beach person. But, having the wonderful deck that goes all the way down to the beach allowed her to enjoy the beach along with us. We really spent most of our time on the deck: started our morning there with our cups of coffee and tea and ended the day there with our glasses of wine. Loved watching all of the surfers, people walking their dogs, and even yoga on the beach one morning. The unexpected greeting from Marsha on Monday morning with our bottle of wine, homemade cookies, and advice on which restaurants to go to during our stay was a special delight.

I have rented many beach houses on Folly over the years, and this was - by far - our best experience. If you are someone who likes fancy appointments, this may not be the place for you. It's a rustic, charming, comfortable, and clean beach house which lacks nothing in creature comforts. It's the way I remember beach houses growing up.

We plan on making this our vacation destination for the future.

Somewhere Else - Folly

David was very easy to work with. House was as expected and advertised. Back deck was amazing and is really what makes Somewhere Else what it is. We would definitely stay again and use David for future rentals/vacations.

Cozy Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

The location is great (right off of Folly Beach) with an awesome oceanfront view. We stayed for 2 nights and ran into just one hiccup when we arrived, but Dave was quick to respond to our call (at midnight) and made sure everything went smoothly. The "Welcome Lady" was really sweet and gave us gifts and tips for our stay. Overall, had a great experience from initial inquiry to check-out!

Book your Charleston vacation rental and experience coastal beauty infused with Southern charm!

When you plan a Charleston vacation, you pick your experience. Our guests can stay in downtown along the Ashley River or nearby in island destinations such as Folly Beach and the Isle of Palms.

Enjoy both history and modernity in one of our Charleston vacation rentals. From the area’s pristine beaches to PGA Tour golf courses, fine dining, and rich historical landmarks, families and singles alike can't get enough of Charleston. So much so, the city has consistently ranked as the No. 1 world-renown vacation spot by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler.

Start your vacation outdoors and explore both the Atlantic Ocean and Cooper River. Families can relax on one of the area beaches or get in the water for boating, fishing, kayaking, parasailing, swimming and surfing. Charleston also houses nature preserves, gardens, parks and the South Carolina Aquarium, a family favorite.

When not enjoying the scenery, head to the dozens of attractions and festivals in Charleston that celebrate history and arts and culture. History buffs will find opportunities to learn more about both the Civil War and the Revolutionary War with access to historical sites, including churches, stunning plantation homes and the Fort Sumter National Monument. No trip will feel complete without taking one of the many guided ghost and walking tours to see more than 50 museums – including America's first theater, the Dock Street Theatre in the French Quarter – and art galleries that showcase the area's rich national heritage and local culture.

Our guests also have a blast shopping at the King Street Fashion District, which includes dozens of retailers selling everything from antiques and apparel to locally made treats. The city's food scene also ranks as one of the best in the U.S., and has more than 150 restaurants showcasing chef-inspired dishes as well as traditional favorites.

If you prefer to stay outside but in proximity to the city, iTrip Vacations also has vacation rentals located in Folly Beach and Isle of Palms, two barrier islands off the South Carolina coast. These destinations feature miles of beaches, family-friendly activities, award-winning restaurants and more.

Stay in a Folly Beach vacation rental, and have a blast on or off the water. Folly Island sits between the Folly River and Atlantic Ocean, providing the best of both freshwater and saltwater activities. Families enjoy relaxing on the beaches, biking, boating, fishing, dolphin-watching, kayaking and sailing.

The island houses two parks that offer public beach access and events: Folly River Park and Folly Beach County Park, both located in proximity to restaurants, shopping and play areas. Another must-see attraction is the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, where visitors can fish, watch wildlife and spend time together. Although locals refer to this spot as the Edge of America, Folly Island is only a 15-minute drive to Charleston.

Isle of Palms – located only 12 miles to Charleston – offers a friendly beach community complete with modern amenities to create a place to have fun and relax. The area has a thriving district packed full of shops and restaurants surrounded by miles of beaches and residences. Popular Isle of Palms activities include fishing charter adventures, sightseeing, watersports and golf at the Wild Dunes Island resort.
