Reviewer Comments:

Ck'd in Saturday,and Sunday morning the AC broke for the basement and first floor. After calling Avocet sent out their AC tech who diagnosed the problem and said he would order parts. Called Avocet and was told they would send out portable AC units. Maintance only had two units available witch we had put in the basement and first floor bedrooms. The AC didn't get repaired till Thursday afternoon due to parts availability. The kitchen and living area got to 85 degrees and humid even with the ceiling fans. Our son slept in the basement and found live cockroaches in the bathroom and a large dead one in the queen bedroom. A few of the electrical outlets didn't work. The AC tech, the maintenance man, the staff at Avocet all did their best to help. The house location was good, beach access across the street and a block and a half walk. Town was about a mile away. Good parking, several spots in front and a driveway in back. Even with the problems I would recommend this house.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was big enough for everyone to have their own space. However, the door handle fell off in our hand when we arrived and the tv's were not working, neither was the Internet service. We called the Avocet Rental and they said someone would come out and fix the handle and the tv'. We called 2x to request assistance and no one showed up the entire week. The outside shower handle, also fell off and the mosquitos where horrible due to standing water under the deck. The house has some obvious moisture issues with moisture removal bags hanging in all the rooms. For someone with allergies and sinus problems this makes for a nightmare. The thermostats were set to cool for only 5.3/4 hrs. Per day and this was miserable. Also, when we called about the Internet service, we were informed the owner hadn't paid the bill. This was our first experience with this rental company and not a very good impression.

We had the best time staying here. The kitchen was a dream come true with all the cooking needs you can imagine. We also enjoyed the extras like boogie boards and bikes to ride. Only downside was not having TV's in each bedroom. Other than that, perfection!

Reviewer Comments:

It is a great house in a great location but filthy dirty inside, broken railings (huge safety issue)and doors in need of repair. Broken outside shower cold water faucet, overgrown trees and bushes outside, red ant nests, trash by grill area. Very poor response from Avocet concerning these issues. Cable/internet were shut off when we got there because of unpaid bills. By the time we left only the cold water faucet had been fixed.

This house was perfect for a group of Mom's for our annual Folly beach getaway. We loved the Folly character that the house had and how much space there was for a large group to not feel cramped. It's definitely on our list to return next year!

Reviewer Comments:

Our family was down for a wedding on the beach nearby. Twelve members of the family were comfortable, and had all the amenities that we needed. Had more than advertised, i.e. surf board, boogie(sp)boards, even had two bicycles available. More appliances than advertised. Blenders, microwave etc in great shape and response to our request was fast and damaged refrigerator door was replaced quickly and efficiently. Would recommend. Everything worked....
