About The Owner

When I was born, my grandparents had a house on front beach at Folly. During my life, I have seen many changes, but through it all, one thing remains the same - it is heaven on earth. As the locals call it - the Edge of America - there is no place like it!

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

really great house in a good location

  • 4 of 5

we rented for spring break 2016 and the house worked our really well for us. It is in really good shape, albeit not a 5 star listing. But for the price we loved what we got. The kitchen is in great shape and well stocked, the beds and linens and sheets are all in good shape, and the house is one block off a great beach. It is also a little walk to town, which is good since it can get loud there on the weekends. I wish the streets had bike lanes but what can you do. 1 block from a kid's playground as well. Overall, this was a great find for us and a real bargain. We'd come back again!!

Holiday stay

  • 3 of 5

We had 5 adults and 4 children during thanksgiving week. The bedrooms were large and the beds were extremely comfortable. The home is comfortable with room to spread out. The den area upstairs was great for the kids. It was a short walk to the beach from the house. The kitchen was fairly well equipped however there were multiple things broken within the home that need to be addressed. The downstairs bathroom is NOT attached to the shower which was a bit of a surprise to us. The shower is off the dining area and is free standing. The gas grills did not have any propane and the agent lacked in reponse so we were not able to use them at all. The house presents as if renovations are in the works and it certainly has great potential. It is comfortable for about 6-8 people max with only 2 bathrooms.

Our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 7 children. The house was perfect!!! Well appointed and well stocked!!

Very close to the beach. Off street parking. I can't think of anything negative. There were even water toys for the kids. We are a cooking family and this kitchen was ideal. Plenty of room to have several things going on at once. We will absolutely come back to Pelican's Porch. What a wonderful week!!!!!!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice. This house has everything you need in a beach house. 4 BR, 2 bath, full kitchen, living room. CLEAN. Great porches on front and on side. Yard in front. Off street parking. Really close to beach. Within walking distance of restaurants, etc. in the town of Folly Beach. Perfect.

"Griswald" Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, one block off beach, five blocks from main street. Superb family vacation home that can accomodate a large family. We had eight adults and two children. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean, family room upstairs was an excellent place for small children to play. Owner and property manager were easy to work with. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the morning with our coffee or late in the afternoon with our cocktails. Plenty of parking in back of house.

Simply, outstanding vacation home. Highly recommend this home for large families.

Perfect Folly Beach House!

  • 4 of 5

I had an awesome experience at Pelican's Porch!!!! My old friends from college and I wanted to plan a girl's weekend getaway. We all went to school in Charleston, and always went to Folly Beach. The house was a block from the beach, and only a 15 min walk to the bars and restaurants. It was a great price as well! The pictures on the website depict the inside of house perfectly. It's very clean and updated. Nice beds, bathrooms, furniture, and had plenty of towels. Cheryl Russo was extremely nice and helpful with booking the house. The first day we arrived, we had a small problem with the toilets running and not flushing properly. I contacted Cheryl and she helped me right away and told me what to do. She was even going to send out a plumber if we couldn't resolve the problem! (We did though). I would definitely recommend a group of friends or a family to stay at Pelican's Porch! However, the ONLY flaw of the house is that it doesn't really have much of a driveway. There's room for one car close to the road, but we were able to squeeze two small cars next to each other and half parked on the grass. It wasn't really a huge issue though. Anyone visiting Folly should go to Taco Boy, Blu, and Snapperjacks!
