About Richard and Lauri Huss

Lauri and I live on Folly Beach, we have three children and three grand children. We built this house for our daughter and her family to live in while they completed school. They have recently moved which gives us the ability to rent the home as a vacation rental.

Richard and Lauri Huss purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard and Lauri Huss chose Charleston Area

We chose to build this particular design because for the large porch and open floor plan. It was designed by Allison Ramsey Architects in Beaufort SC.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is stunning. I wish I could live in it! The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for all eight of us. The home was fully equipped with all the essentials we needed for the weekend. I would recommended this home to anyone planning a trip to Folly or Charleston. It's close to both the beach and downtown. A huge thank you to the homeowners for making their home so welcomeing.

Close to the edge of everything and clean!

  • 4 of 5

A Big thank you to Richard and Lauri for opening this home to vacationers. It was lovely inside with modern updated amenities. And It was VERY CLEAN!!! And Very CLOSE to Folly Beach and downtown Charleston. It was perfect for our "girls getaway" because of it's location and the street was quiet. It is located in a friendly neighborhood that is conducive for evening walks after big meals!! I would recommend this home for vacationers that enjoy clean quiet surroundings.

Family Reunion Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time doing a home rental for vacation. This was the best decision we ever made. There were people coming from 4 states and we hadn't seen each other for 2 years. The house was all we thought it would be - and more. It was comfortable (the short time we were actually there) and large enough that we weren't stepping all over each other. Considering we were surrounded by sand - the house was immaculately clean and bright. But, I warn you - if you like to cook and need to do it for a large group bring some pots. They only have the basics. We did find 1 roach in the dishwasher - but that is probably not a surprise as they abound in the south and by large bodies of water. The location of the house was convenient to just about everything - food, beach and shopping. Just over the bridge from everything else. I will definitely call on HomeAway for our next reunion - hopefully in just a year. If you want a fantastic experience - contact HomeAway and request this home.

Perfect and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

Close to the Edge was a perfect little home for myself, daughter and 2 grand babes. Great location, 10 minutes to beautiful Folly Beach and about 15 minutes to the heart of Charlston. House was homey and clean, with everything you need including great beds. Will be back!

Richard and Lauri Huss's vacation home was EXACTLY as presented in their listing. Well-appointed, clean and perfectly located for all of the activities we had planned during our 5 day stay. Neighborhood was quiet and neighbors were friendly. Whether we spent the day in Charleston or nearby Patriot's Point or down on Folly Beach, we were glad to spend some time in the house to re-group before the next adventure.

I would highly recommend this property for a family get-a-way!
