About the property

3BR 2BA Beach Cottage with Ocean Views. Marsh views and lots of sea breeze

GO's Getaway cottage is great for families as it is located off the main road at the Washout right across the street from beach access. You can walk to the The Folly Beach Lighthouse which is about 1 mile down the beach. The Folly Beach Pier and restuarants are located 2 miles from the home on the Island. You never really need to move your car if you rent a local golf cart or bring your bikes. You can see the ocean and the river from the large deck. Very open floor plan that is perfect for family/friend gatherings.

Located in a neighborhood area with full time residents. This is not an event or party house. Please take the time to read the rental agreement.

About Suzanne and Randy Carter

We are local!! Our family lives and works in Summerville which is about 45 minutes from Folly Beach. We built the home back in the 1980s as a second home. My mom passed last year from cancer but this was her favorite place on the earth. She lived out here from May to October of every year and there were always pots of great food on the stove and too much family and fun to list. The cottage is located at The Washout in what is better know as the neighborhood 'Little Summerville'. You can see the ocean from the deck and screened porch. The beach access is located right across the street! The views and sea breeze are incredible!!

Suzanne and Randy Carter purchased this cottage in 1986

Fantastic location and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We were attracted to this rental because of it's location, price and meeting the size of our group. Conveniently located near the best area for waves for the kids to play in, it was far enough away from the busyness of the more congested areas of Folly Beach giving us space and quiet to relax. During our stay we never turned on any of the TVs as we were busy seeing the sights, playing at the beach, going for walks or simply enjoying our time together. The house was clean and comfortable but very well-used and appears just like the images on the website. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and found the owner to be friendly and helpful.

Great rental experience and vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for us. Close to the beach, dog friendly and enough space for the multi generational group of 5. It's an older home that is obviously loved. The deck is fantastic and the absolute best. The owners were quick to respond and perfectly accommodating. We would recommend and would stay again.

It was perfectly situated for a beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owners are kind, wonderful people! I loved the home and walked the beach everyday. It is a wonderful home close to wonderful restaurants. The home is set up so 8 people can sleep comfortably.

I went in Feburary and it was wonderful to hear the roar of the ocean as I lay in bed. There isn't one bad thing I could say about the beach cottage.

I will definitely stay there again

Just right

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed, lots of beds, three bedrooms, and was located in a quieter part of Folly Beach. The beach itself was just a short walk away. It is a perfect house for a family. The common area is large, the kitchen works very well, and there is a big table for meals and games. It is a charming place and we would rent it again. My five-year old grandson said it was "100%!"

Great property near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We used this property as an after Christmas getaway with our three adult daughters and my sister and my husband and myself. The property is just yards from the beach, and when they say a 3 min walk, they mean it! You can hear the ocean day and night. It was lovely. The property is older, and not meant for large crowds, so if you are looking for a place for more than 8, look elsewhere! They advertise 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, but in actuality, there are only 2 bathrooms that are accessible in the main house. The 3rd bathroom is downstairs, off the patio, locked in the room where the dryer is located and where the owners keep their private freezer. For us, this was not usable, but is there if needed. The other thing is that there is a strange configuration of electrical outlets. It took awhile before we knew what turned on what! The owners were more than happy to talk to us on the phone and talk us through whatever challenges we had. If I went again, I might consider taking some extra towels. There are plenty of beach towels which rounded out the amount of the others. But with a lot of women, we each would have liked two towels apiece, and had to dip into the beach towels for this!! We had so much fun and would certainly recommend this property. Randy and Susie were great! We would definitely go again!

Perfect Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I am a director for several large resorts in South Carolina, I do not give five stars easily. My oldest daughter was graduating from the College Of Charleston and we needed a home base that offered a comfortable and fun experience for family ages 17 to 70; not an easy task... This was the perfect get-away for all ages! Randy made us feel incredibly welcome, was quick to see to a small issue we had with a drain, and simply set the perfect tone to begin our hectic weekend off right. I wish I could have Randy on my team to great our guests! The property is everything that a beach house should be, we wanted for nothing. Cleanliness was A+, location was perfection. I was looking for in a place to kick off my flip flops, throw some burgers on the grill and spend an evening laughing with those I love most. Thank you for sharing your special place on Folly with us.
