Nice house, short ride to downtown

  • 5 of 5

This home is bigger than we expected. Everybody has their own space plus a roomy living room. Since we do a lot of eating in rather than out, we were happy to find the kitchen was fully equipped to meet the families needs. Short and easy drive to downtown and Folly Beach. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a few bumps in the road upon arriving and in the beginning, but everything worked out just fine. My husband, a fisherman was looking forward to using the little boat and getting out in the water. The boat however, was under construction and wasn't unable to be used. He also wasn't able to do much fishing off the grass due to the large amount of moss that got tangled up in his line. Besides from that we had an issue with the washer and had to ask for extra towels to get us through the week. Bob was quick to respond to our needs and made sure we were fully taken care of the whole week.

The house in general was perfect for my family of 8. We all had plenty of space and everything that was needed was provided. It was a great place to relax in the evenings and the large living room provided lots of family time. The location of the house was perfect for all of the attractions that my family had planned for our trip. This was our first VRBO and I would have to say it probably won't be our last. It was great being able to feel comfortable and having the relaxing environment of being at home. Although I probably drove Bob crazy while we were there, I do appreciate his time and patience with us and for allowing our stay to be phonmenoal!

Close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Home sits right on the lake with ducks and geese. Beautiful house inside with all you need. The house is much bigger than showing in the pictures. Kitchen is well equipped. Close to everything. We even did a quick trip to Savannah.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As we opened the door we immediately felt at home. The house was very clean. The way the house is layed out made it super easy for us to stay as a family and still have a place to sit and relax away from the kids. Huge bedrooms with king size beds. There was a welcome basket with coffee/filters, oatmeal and Champagne! Which was really nice! Plenty of towels and they were very soft and big. We were perfectly located to access downtown Charleston and Folly Beach with ease. Everything you would need or want is super close by! The neighbors were very friendly. If I could give this place more stars I definetly would! Thank you so much for making our vacation awesome!!!!

Great location, plenty of room, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home that is conveniently located to both downtown Charleston and Folly Beach. The king sized beds were super comfortable with the bonus of Tvs/DVD’s in each room. There are two separate living areas if you need a break from the kids :). I was thankful for a downstairs bedroom so this grandma wouldn’t have to climb the stairs. The kitchen was well-appointed and there was a spacious dining room for eating and card games. We appreciated the easy access (1 minute away) to a large grocery and Starbucks! Some of our Charleston activities included long walks on Folly Beach, fishing from the Folly Pier (my grandson caught and released a hammerhead shark!), the water park at James Island County Park, kayaking Shem Creek in Mt Pleasant, the Saturday Farmer’s market at Marion Square, the downtown Charleston market, walking along the Battery, and a multitude of wonderful activities and meals in downtown Charleston! While the frontage road is busy, the driveway was large enough to make a 3 point turn around so we did not have to back out. We loved our time at Duck Dreamer and hope to return in the future as Charleston is this Texas girl’s home town and I visit often with my family. I feel blessed to have found this lovely property!

Roomy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We all had a good stay here. The pond in the backyard is a perk (we all love fishing there). House is clean, check in is easy, the property manager is quick to answer any questions. Great value.
