About the property

Cottage, Studio, One Bath, Sleeps Two.

This charming beach cottage appeals to single travelers and couples seeking a small but unique vacation-home-away-from-home, especially those who love the Tiny House Nation philosophy of life. Little Turtle offers the best of both worlds: just one block from shops, restaurants and 'downtown' Folly Beach's night life...yet it's tucked away on a shady street lined with palm, live oak and magnolia trees. Enter your own little world behind the green garden gate to find a charming walkway with a patio garden on one side and the entrance to Little Turtle Guest Cottage on the other.

Inside Little Turtle Guest Cottage you'll find a comfortable home for single travelers or couples who appreciate the adventure that a small but romantic vacation setting can offer. Many honeymooners and couples celebrate their anniversaries here.

This cottage is new but designed to fit into the 'vintage 1940's cottage' style that makes Folly Beach such a desirable location. It has ceramic tile throughout and a comfortable built-in, wrap-around, sitting area for reading, lounging and watching tv. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, electric range with oven, microwave, a coffee pot and a window over the sink that looks out into your garden. The bathroom has a ceramic tile shower. A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft and a comfy queen-size mattress on a platform bed. Towels, bed linens, pots and pans, dishes, utensils, all included although you will want to bring your beach towels.

Just outside your cottage is a walled-garden patio complete with 2 lounge chair for reading, morning coffee or just looking up at the stars. And after a day spent at the beach, there's nothing better than an outdoor hot/cold shower where you can 'shower with the mermaids'.

New info: Folly Beach license number is LIC-1-18-181722.

We loved loved staying here. Little turtle or blue heron inn is the perfect little place for two. Love all of the wood work in the house and I truly enjoyed the small kitchen ans loft bedroom. Our weather for the few days we stayed on Folly could not have been better, we spent much of our time on the beach, in the water or on the houses patio. I can't wait to come back!

This cottage is small. My husband estimates it to be about 260 sq ft. That is not a complaint but folks should be aware. The location is perfect - quiet but only a few blocks from any where you might want to be - Bert's, town, the beach, the marsh. The owner has thought of everything you might ever want or need - even water bottles. The cottage is impeccably clean and the decor is charming, even a camellia bush on the patio. My only complaint about this rental had nothing to do with the cottage but with VBRO. What is the deal with the $59 service charge? I understand taxes, cleaning fee and security deposit but the VRBO fee feels like a scam and I will avoid the company in the future - I repeat, not the cottage but the company..

We loved how quaint the Little Turtle was. It had everything we needed for an extended weekend stay, and it is a very short walk from the beach and restaurants.

Perfect space, Awesome location, Great Communication

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Little Turtle cottage last weekend and it was a fantastic experience.

The house is located 4 blocks (max) from the public beach access, the pier, and awesome restaurants with great food. Cathy was excellent at communicating what to expect upon arrival and even had somebody get there early to turn the lights and AC on for us. Very thoughtful!

The kitchen came stocked with your basic cookware, silverware, and dishes. There are trash and recycling receptacles outside. Cleaning supplies included. Everything was there to make what we wanted and clean up effectively.

The Little Turtle is the perfect amount of space for two people. With a lofted bed (queen mattress I think) accessible via spiral staircase (exciting!), the downstairs space with open seating, a normally sized bathrom with shower, and a kitchen that we cooked 3 meals at, we had no issues whatsoever feeling comfortable right at home. We were out and about probably 80% of the day, but the little cottage was perfect to come back to at the end of the day, or just to walk back and make lunch (again, it was so close to the beach!).

As for the area, you will have to get in your car to go to a big box store like harris teeter or CVS, but there are local shops that sell everything you could need grocery wise. One place we'd recommend would be Bert's Market. They're quirky and refreshing with a huge variety of foods and everybody is super nice.

Overall, I wish I could give the Little Turtle and Cathy 7 out of 5 stars but I'm maxed out at 5. If we could stay here again we would for sure- however, we're having a baby in a month, so if we DO come back, it will probably be at the bigger house on the property. I'd recommend renting from Cathy to anybody who's looking for a great experience!
