"This condo was a great choice for our family of 5 adults...and would be good for kids, too.
The condo is walking distance to downtown, but still quiet!
There is a quiet one-way street to cross, but the access walkway to the ocean is only about 25-30 feet away.
The ocean view from the main balcony and upstairs bedroom balcony were perfect! Our best part of our visit was sitting there and enjoying the pelicans that continuously flew by!
Clean and comfortable condo and a pretty well stocked kitchen with all appliances you would need and some herbs/spices/oil/s&p, etc. We did a big grocery shopping before we showed up, and realized we forgot coffee. Fortunately, there was a huge container of coffee available! We payed it forward... leaving some beers, hummus, chips and anything else that was not opened. :) Hopefully the next guests enjoyed it!
Love that each of the 3 bedrooms had a bathroom. Rooms were clean and beds comfy! Plenty of bath towels and about 6 beach towels available.
We ate at Loggerhead's, St. James Gate and brought in from Rita's Seaside Grill (try the salmon) and Woody's Pizza (order early, can take an hour for pick up)
Tip: Order take out instead...pick it up and enjoy it on that beautiful balcony!
Charleston and area: Visit Magnolia Plantation! Get there early...They open at 8 and begin tours at 9. (You have options for different tours...we purchased 3 tours, but could only stay for 2...They will reimburse you at the admin office for unused tkts.)
Visit Patriot's Point for lunch and board the USS Yorktown...it was really cool! So was the Vietnam experience exhibit there. We took a horse carriage ride in Charleston...our 'ping pong ball lottery' brought us north, but it was still a nice hour tour. We took a sunset schooner 2 hour cruise which left from the aquarium area. Bring your own snacks and purchase drinks on board.
The 'kids' took an UBER in to Charleston for dinner and partying...they had a great time!
When you get to Folly, take a car ride to both ends of the island to get a feel for the area...I wish I did this earlier. You can park and walk to the lighthouse at the east end. (Or bike to it!)
So, that is it! I hope my review is helpful! The condo was perfect so we would come stay again!
P.S. Careful walking around Folly...no sidewalks and streets are often narrow."
