What a wonderful week that was! I cherished being able to enjoy my family in this unbelievable setting.

The house is absolutely beautiful. It is bright, clean and offers all the comforts of home. It was perfect for the nine of us.

The fact that we were right on the beach was an added bonus for those of us who enjoyed walking on the beach at night.

We rented bikes and enjoyed the beautiful parks at both ends of the island and we took several trips into Charleston which is only 20 minutes away.

We also walked into town a few times. The pier and the restaurants and shops are less than 10 minutes away.

Kristen was so eager to help and responded to any texts within minutes. When the washer broke down, she arranged to have a new one within hours!

We created memories that will last a lifetime and we will definitely be back.

I have been renting beachfront houses in the Carolina’s for 15 years and I have never had a more disappointing experience. When I make a request to reserve, I always explain who I am and why I would like to rent a particular house. And I always get a warm response. Until this time. I chose Kristen’s house because of the previous renters’ comments said that she is communicative and accessible. This could not have been further from the truth. She never responded to my query. She just took my payment information and invoiced me for the rest. I thought the whole thing was creepy, but it was inside the cancellation window and I couldn’t get a refund. So I was SOL.

I never heard from Kristen until the day that I was checking in. She wrote at 11:00 am to tell me that I could check in at noon (how is this helpful when she knows I live four hours away? Seriously?) She also wrote to tell me that the elevator was broken (but gave no partial refund or conciliation for such a significant issue with the house that caused the property to not meet the specifications provided) and to tell me that she left her Christmas tree up (it was pretty pathetic and had to be moved since it blocked sunlight and views.)

The house was clean, the beds were adequate. The place is furnished like a frat house. Most of the furniture is pressed particle board. The house is terribly under-furnished – there are two teeny weeny tables, in the entire house (!) that are supposed to function as coffee tables? The bedroom furniture is paltry. Bed pillows are sparse. Several light bulbs were out in the house. The electronics setup is inadequate to say the least (we could not set up any music through the system.) The toilet paper is single ply (who does that?) and no soap is provided in the bathrooms. Goodness gracious. It was like camping. At least the heat worked.

We loved Folly Beach – one of the last beaches in the Carolinas for us to visit. And among the best. Downscale, homey, busy, even in December. But we will not return to this house. No thanks.

Beautiful house and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for a family get together over the Thanksgiving holiday. The house is very nice with plenty of room and beds were super comfortable. You can’t beat the location; right on the beach and walking distance to the center of Folly. We would stay again!

It was our 2nd stay & we'd love to go back again and again. Great to have an oceanfront view even when there was a storm raging. Kristen is the best to work with!

Great first impression outside and inside. Well built as proven by the high winds and rain that Irma hit us with from Florida. Fully equipped. Ideal for several couples as was our visit, but family friendly with oodles of games and a separate tv area upstairs. Beach views from lower and upper deck were perfect. Seconds from the beach. We will be back!
