Slices of Heaven Around Every Corner
"The previous reviews noting frequent return visitors say it all....you won't want to leave, and you'll definitely want to return! A week at Sun Love is the perfect remedy for those who need to get away from it all and become completely relaxed, yet adventure awaits around every corner! The house is the perfect distance to everything: about 7 minutes walk to the beach, 3 minutes walk to a local, funky but delicious market and shady outdoor bar, and 5 minutes walk to downtown. We cooked amazing meals on the back deck grill, ate til we were stuffed, yet didn't gain a pound as we were addicted to walking around the shady neighborhood, out for a beach sunrise, to town, or out on the pier, which is beautiful and free to the public. Sun Love is quaint and well-maintained. Watch the local traffic from the front screened porch, or relax while the grill cooks on the back screen porch. The showers have great pressure, a side note but something that feels wonderful after a day (happily!) covered in sand and sunscreen. Take a short drive down to Folly Beach County Park, pay just $8 for a car load, and walk all the way around the corner and you have the chance of spotting dolphins just yards from the shore. In late August, we also had the wonderful fortune of watching baby sea turtles make their voyage to the ocean. Just keep your eyes out for the great volunteers with the Folly Beach turtles. While we cooked a lot in the well-appointed kitchen with Cuisinart pots and pans and updated appliances, we also enjoyed some delicious food downtown. The Dop-In Deli has great, unique affordable sandwiches, the Crab Shacks shrimp appetizers go perfect with a margarita for an afternoon snack, and for a rustic but best-seafood-you'll-ever-have, head just a few minutes down the road to Bowen's Island. Hit it at sunset and you'll catch wall-worthy family photos! To top it off, the owner is wonderful and helps relax you even more. Always respectful of your privacy, yet once you meet her you'll want to share a drink! Can't wait to return with our family. One of our favorite vacation spots yet."
