This was our second "Family Week" at property #266164. We have three generations: My wife & I, my four children and spouses or significant others, and our three grandchildren were all there for the week. The home easily accommodates this number of people.
The kids actually swam in the pool the first two days (of Thanksgiving Week). The weather was a bit too cold for the pool the rest of the week, but not too cold for many visits to the beach. The outdoor shower got lots of use, as the kids used it to warm up after swimming in the pool as well as when we returned from playing in the ocean on several occasions.
The kitchen, dining area and huge family room provide ample space for food preparation and socializing. On Thursday, we had our traditional Thanksgiving meal, with everyone having plenty of room to prepare & cook their signature dishes. There is ample room around the huge dining table for everyone to be seated.
We had a fire in the outdoor fireplace each & every night. There were lots of marshmallows roasted and many S'mores consumed by both the adult "kids" and the grandkids. There was also lots of "adult time" around the fire each night after the grandchildren went to bed.
We viewed lots of birds in the marsh during the week, and saw deer on three separate occasions.
I really can't say enough about the property & its amenities. It has been a perfect place for our family to gather for our week(s) together. It is definitely a FIVE STAR property, and both of our stays there have been FIVE STAR weeks! (This understandably makes Sunday's departures quite difficult, however).
We also like that Folly Beach itself has retained all the charm of an "old timey" beach town. We've had great food & service at "The Crab Shack," "Rita's," "Lost Dog Cafe," "Black Magic Cafe," "Woody's Pizza," & "Blu's Restaurant at Tides" during our visits.
Gotta give a shout out to the folks at Bert's Market, too! We always make several trips there during our stays in Folly Beach. Bert's seems to always have the forgotten items that we need, and their freshly made sandwiches & deli items are awesome!
Our ladies group really enjoyed this beautiful property. It was in close proximity to Charleston and the drive is lovely. It was very clean; well organized; fully stocked; and the verandas were perfect for sunrises, gab sessions and an unobstructed view of the ocean. We will definitely return for more fun in the ☀️ sun.
