Great location

  • 5 of 5

It was a great location to enjoy a little bit of Charleston and the beach. Where the cottage is located in Folly Beach, you are a short walk to the beach but a nice distance from the main drag so it was quiet. The cottage was thoughtfully put together and furnished. The host was great to work through the reservation and prompt deposit return.

A cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 4 days at Picket Fence Cottage with Tropical Storm Irma looming off the coast. The cottage was so cozy that we didn't mind spending more time inside than we had planned. Robin & Sue have everything you need upon arrival, from coffee to a bottle of wine. The home was clean with plenty of towels, clean sheets, and a well stocked kitchen. It was an easy walk to the beach, and the outdoor shower was a plus! I chose the cottage so that I could bring my senior dog along to the beach, and although he was not able to make it, I can say that it would be a perfect place for your pet! I would highly recommend Picket Fence or the two adjoining cottages, and I'll be back. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Memorable Comfort Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, cheerful, well-appointed cottage with easy beach access. Cute coca-cola theme and thoughtful details such as soft towels, lovely quilts, reading lamps, well-stocked kitchen, large grill, laundry, outdoor shower, and beach accessories. Excellent AC and water flow in shower. Wish we had stayed longer!

Perfect home-away-from-home two blocks from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, with kids 14 and 10, are repeat renters of the Picket Fence Cottage. I love having a place for ‘just us’; love hunkering down together in our home-away-from-home to remember how cool we all are away from work, school, sports, etc. And, the cottage is just a few blocks from the beach—so we come and go for lunch and later afternoon reprieve (when the sand gets awfully hot). The modest kitchen works great for many of our meals (we do eat out some in downtown Folly Beach), and we definitely use the kitchen table area, sitting room couches, and screened in porch area to be together. On-site laundry and parking also a plus.

Great location @ Folly Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Picket Fence Cottage. Owners were very nice and always quick to answer any questions we had. It was very clean, well located and had everything we needed for the beach. Located an easy walk to the beach & about 6 blocks from Center St. Far enough away to not be in the middle of the crowds, but close enough to visit for dinner. If you don't want to walk, you can drive and usually find parking on the street next to the park at Folly River and just walk from there.
