PET POLICY - We welcome Pets & our Pet Policy is simple, we do not charge any extra Pet Fee BUT we do ask that you not allow pets on the beds or furniture & due to insurance requirements they must be on a leash while outside. Also when leaving the pet alone at the home (in an unfamiliar environment) in is best to leave them in a crate or at the very least shut all the bedroom doors. Although we do not charge an additional "Pet Fee" please know that any damages or cleaning from excess hair, stains or odors will be charged to your damage deposit so as long as your pet's cool, we are cool too!!!

About Chris Holsomback/Tom Powers

We are nice people with a fun & funky house.

Why Chris Holsomback/Tom Powers chose Folly Beach

This is authentic, old school beach house that we bought for it's simplicity & great deck space.

What makes this house unique

This is a nice, family style beach house that we have updated with modern amenities & fun, quirky art.

The indoor space of this home is very cozy & inviting. The sunroom front porch is a great spot to spend the afternoons taking in the ocean view while reading and sipping beverages. The huge, gated deck space is great for lounging, dogs laying in the sun, kids running around, cookouts & oyster roasts. The yard is very useful for cookouts, kids playing, parking & has great outdoor showers.

Great except for some minor things

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time!! Only complaint was the inside shower not having hot water intermittently and the fact that those pesky Folly Beach sugar ants got into a pack of donuts. Air conditioner went on the fritz but agent was out there in no time and had everything fixed within an hour. Would definitely come back!

Folly Time Beach Rentals

  • 4 of 5

Chris and Tom, the owners of Folly Time Beach Rentals saved our weekend. I mistakenly booked the incorrect dates for our stay, on a very busy weekend at Folly, and they did everything possible to help save the weekend. Which they were able to do because they manage several properties. Would highly recommend them for all your rental needs.

Great for a friend reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 16 friends fly in from all over the world for a college reunion. This place was the PERFECT size to comfortably sleep everyone! The kitchen was large and clean (perfect for cooking large dinners!) and the house came supplied with towels and bedding. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs. The downstairs is in the form of 2 separate apartments, which was great for letting people have their own space. Would 100% rent this place again!

Best house I have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

Best house ever!! I've gone to folly beach my whole life and this is my favorite house to stay at! It's right on the beach, close enough to town to walk/ride bikes but still private, and fun house all around! Me and my family stayed at this house a couple summers ago and had to stay again!! We would keep on staying but the price has gone up do to upgrades and we can't afford it:( it would be nice if the extra room with the day bed and trundle had a dresser or storage unit! That was a one of the few issues we experienced while we where there. The kitchen is fully stocked and the deck area is perfect providing lots of room and seats (hammock!!) and all gated off which is perfect if you have/bring dogs.The beds are all comfy and clean. There is also 2 wooden outdoor showers which come in handy. We would just shower off after the beach then throw on a t shirt and head down to center street for lunch. I would recommend getting a golf cart. Although you can easily walk or bike to center street easily, if you are planning on visiting center street often a golf cart is nice. The bikes are a little run down and hard to steer (especially for kids). If your worried about the privacy with someone living beneath you don't worry!! The only thing you share is the boardwalk you get your own porch. Thanks so much for the best expierence ever! Wish I could stay again but I can't do anything about the upgrades!! Thanks again

Dog heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the weekend. This place is great for dogs. The deck has gates, so your pets can be outside with you. The accommodations are clean and the walls brightly colored. You have your own walkway to the beach. There are lots of sitting areas....on the deck, in the sunroom and inside the house. The kitchen is stocked with lots of extras that you usually don't get in a spices and condiments. The house is stocked with board games and books and has a really good wifi network. The only drawbacks are...we couldn't find lights for the outside deck at night...maybe we just didn't know where to look. And although this is listed as a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath property, it is more accurate to say 2 bedroom with a daybed on a side porch (which has it's own heater and air conditioner) and 1 full bathroom and 1 half bath. Still, we hope to come back again.....thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the good review, the place is great for dogs and super fun, we are always upgrading the place to make it better. With that in mind let me respond to your concerns. 1. You could not find the porch lights, sorry about that, you must have missed the switches by the interior door with the labels that say "Porch & Outside" also there is a set of switches by the stairs you walk up. The house is old & has been added to over the years so some of the switches are in places that might not be where they would be if it was new construction BUT for ANYONE reading this review please understand that we have 4 FULL TIME people on our staff & answer our phones from 9am - 9pm 7 DAYS A WEEK & had you simply called we would be more then happy to tell you where the light switches were located. Please don't take this the wrong way but all I can tell you as a property manager our only goal is to make your stay a good one but WE CAN'T HELP YOU IF YOU DON'T ASK US!!! I say that with no sarcasm, just want to make sure that everyone knows we care & please just let us know any issues. You may have had a bad experience with calling a company about such things but we don't mind, you won't be bothering us, JUST CALL, we know it's an old funky place, that's why we shot videos to help people check in & have PRINTED labels on all the switches. 2. The rd bedroom is a part of a porch that has been converted into a separate room, we call it a room because it has 4 walls & a door that closes. It has a top quality day bed with a trundle below with good mattresses. The room was part of a porch that was professionally remodeled last year that is fully insulated, brand new windows & fixtures & yes it has a window unit AC because it is not connected to the rest of the central AC system. I point this out so that anyone reading this will not think it an unacceptable room, in fact MOST older beach homes & homes in America for that matter have been upgraded over the years & has a room like this that was a conversion of some sort so I have to respectfully disagree that it should be classified as a 2 bedroom. 3. It has 1 full bath & a half bath, not 2 bathrooms. This is true, we built the ad years ago & VRBO did not have a good way to describe a jack & jill bath room, another reason why we shot a walk through video to give people a real view of the home, also the place has a double private hot water shower outside. With respect, thanks for the review, we will take it to heart

Perfect in every way! Clean, fun, and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just the perfect beach house! We have rented many house/condos before, but this one by far, has been the best! Amenities galore! Clean, spacious and decorated to appease everyone. There was nothing lacking. The hosts were very easy to work with and followed up with a phone call soon after our arrival to ensure we were pleased or needed anything. We will be back!
