iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches
Family Getaway at Little Green Cottage
We had the best time here. We relaxed on the covered porch listening to the waves while watching the pelicans drifting past on the wind. The beach supplies helped us boogie board, build sand castles, and sit with our feet in the ocean. We enjoyed unwinding at the end of the day by grilling out and relaxing around the fire pit making s'mores.
The separate bedrooms worked out great for our family. Our last day slept soundly in the twin beds while we slept snug in our full bed in our own room. The coded lock was perfect for easily coming and going from the beach. The outside hose made it easy to clean up when sandy.
I highly recommend Charleston Outdoor Adventures' Dolphin Tours and kayak rentals. We saw a newborn dolphin, pods of dolphins, and tortoises. The aquarium was also a highlight of our stay.
Thanks Little Green Cottage! Best vacation ever.
Some times the greatest gifts come in the smallest boxes...
And this is how I would describe the Little Green Cottage. My husband and our two children (under 10) loved this cottage. If you are looking to recreate a family vacation from the old days, where kids are playing in the sand rather than looking at screens, and where puzzles and monopoly games never leave the kitchen table, and the last lights you see at the end of the day are the stars - than this is the place for you. I'd say a family of four would be the most you could fit comfortably in this space for a week's rental but there is a futon for 2 additional people if needed. You get a clear view of the Atlantic from the amazing outdoor space, an enclosed porch and a decent size open air deck. The interior was clean and met our needs, nothing fancy but totally adequate that we made dinner most nights.
The best part of this rental for me was the easy access to the beach. Not having to wrestle the kids into car seats and deal with packing and unpacking the car from beach trips was such a luxury. The beach was beautiful, and very quiet. Best part of Folly in our opinion.
Our rental experience was enhanced by Sarah and Steve from iTrip - I have rented houses all over the country and I have never had such a pleasant, attentive experience. We got quick responses to any questions or needs we had. For example, one of the beach chairs was rusty and didn't work and the beach cart was in a similar condition. Steve replaced them both within 12 hous! We felt like they really cared about us and this really was the icing on this cake. Thank you for the memories - we hope to return soon!
Thank you for a great review Tricia! Little Green Cottage is a great location, perfect for a beach vacation! So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Glad we could help! Come back soon! Steven
Girls Trip to the Beach!
We loved everything about this house and Folly Beach! Cant wait to come back. Thank you!
Thank you Susan, Glad you loved everything! Come on back! Steven
This little bungalow was exactly what we needed to relax and recharge. It had everything we needed for a week at the beach. The spot on Folly was secluded and felt like a private beach at times. The AC was very effective in 90 degree heat. The deck for watching pelicans and the ocean was our favorite. We will definitely come back!
Thank you Jennifer. We’re glad you got to relax and recharge. Hope to see y’all again soon. Steven
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at the Little Green Cottage on Folly Beach. It's probably the best deal on the island for being right on the beach. We loved that it was at the end of the island near the bird sanctuary and away from the crowds but with a spectacular view of the sunrise coming up over the island. We were able to easily drive into Charleston for sightseeing and meals and be back on the beach within a half an hour. The Little Green Cottage has a rustic charm that brought back memories from our childhood beach trips.
The kitchen is small but well-stocked, and it was great that our lab was able to accompany us and enjoy the ocean.
Thank you Robert, We're delighted you all got to enjoy the beach, the city and the cottage! Steven
Great Weekend with my family.
Location is perfect. Enjoyed every morning on the porch watching the sun come up and dolphins swim by. We will definitely be back.
Thanks Christine! It doesn't get much better than that! Glad you go to see the Dolphins in the morning. They are awesome! Steven
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.
