About Joanne Cullen

We both grew up on the south shore of Boston Massachusetts. We are blessed with a beautiful family and two houses on the Altantic coast. We love the ocean, outdoor activities, live music and spending time with family.

Joanne Cullen purchased this house in 2013

Why Joanne Cullen chose Charleston

We fell in love with Folly Beach on our first visit and made a plan to some day own a home here. We have worked really hard and finally made this dream a reality. We look forward to our retirement when we can live at Terns Nest all winter and escape the cold and snow in the north.

What makes this house unique

The abundant green gardens around the house, the lush marshes across the street, the beautiful, majestic tree in the front yard all sold me before I set foot inside Terns Nest. Inside, the open floor plan, warm welcoming kitchen and fireplace all stole my heart. I hope you love it as much as we do.

Nice house, but quite a few minor maintenance items that need to be addressed .

  • 3 of 5

Pleasant house, but the dishwasher was moldy when we got there, causing the entire house to smell. Turns out the dishwasher wasn’t working, notified owner who apologized for the inconvenience, no dish pan to hand wash, which we did all week.

This odor combined with the fresh paint smell were pretty obnoxious. I appreciate the painting to keep the place up, but think we should have been notified, my daughter had to go to urgent care for respiratory problems.

The vertical blinds in the living room were missing more than half the slats, affording no privacy in that room.

The mattress pad on the queen bed was shredded.

Couldn't find a way to plug the tubs for baths.

Directions for which switches control what would help.

The walkway to the parking area needs lighting.

The exhaust fan in one bathroom only worked occasionally, made enough noise to wake up grandkids.

These problems could all be addressed in a day, making for a much nicer stay, and a higher rating.

The stay overall was good. Minor repairs need to be done .

  • 4 of 5

As a whole the stay went well. The place was very roomy. Everyone was able to have their own space. Minor repairs needs to be done. The blinds in the kitchen needs to be fixed ASAP. Minor carpet stains. The toilet runs.

We had a great time, and found the accommodations to be better than we were expecting! The only thing we missed and I should have thought ahead and brought with us, was more bake items for the kitchen ( a baking dish, cookie sheet etc). But otherwise everything was great! We were sad that it was too hot to take advantage of the outdoor seating on the porch. The location was perfect! Away from the busy city, but only about a 15 min uber ride! Would definitely stay again!
