  • Everything was perfect!

    "Just returned from a week-long stay at the "Chicken House" and have nothing but great things to say. The house is charming and comfortable, especially if you like a vintage, retro feel -- it's all of that in the best way. Yes, only one bathroom, but our party of 6 really didn't have any problems rotating through. Our party was two couples and two individuals and the bedroom setup was perfect for everyone to have their own space, with a comfortable common room in between and a big kitchen table. The screened porch was the star of the show -- we almost had to arm-wrestle for hammock privileges. Not isolated at all, but far enough off the main drag of Center St. to be quieter in the evenings. The house really did have everything we needed and the views and beach access were stunning. Amanda was a thoroughly gracious host, and we were able to work out a last-minute addition of a couple extra nights to our stay because we weren't ready to leave yet! We've vacationed on Folly for years but have never stayed in the same place twice - but in this case we truly fell in love and can't wait to repeat!"

  • Excellent vacation house, great location, very agreeable and helpful owner. Return trip a must.

    "We had a delightful stay in this well appointed, excellently located vacation home. The all important beds were quite comfortable, appropriately firm. The kitchen fully functional, baths suitable. We appreciated the linens, towels and beach toys. Distance to beach only a half block away, very easy. We enjoyed the view to the marsh, particularly at sunset from any one of the several decks. The all important AC worked very well, cooling the house quickly when returning from day out. I would give the house, owner and location a 100% rating, except for the missing or damaged screens. These are a must to keep the critters at bay in the late afternoon and evening. The ceiling fans allow open doors to deck at night, better than conditioned air! All in all, we're very satisfied with the experience and look forward to renting again next year."

  • The BEST Beach Rental I Have Ever Had

    "I have stayed at Folly Beach 6 times, (Hilton Head 3 times, Sullivan's island once), and I must say that this is the best beach rental I have ever had. Folly Beach is by far the most reasonable of the Charleston area beaches. With about a 20 minute drive to Charleston, is is possible to enjoy the beach during the day, and still shop and enjoy Charleston restaurants in the late afternoon and evening. I rented this house for myself and 5 high school friends. As "women of a certain age, " we tend to be very particular about our surroundings. This property did not disappoint!! This house is on the quieter end of the island (at least in Mid may), and about 1.2 miles from the center of town, and about 2/10 mile from the County Park. It is the first time I have stayed at this end, and I have to say it is the prettier end of the Island. This 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath house is well appointed. Tree of the bedrooms have a private bath; two share a "Jack and Jill" bathroom (a private entrance from each bedroom). All of the bedrooms are quite large; 3 have queen beds, 1, a king, and 1 has 4 single beds. The laundry is on the second floor (as are 4 of the bedrooms). The large kitchen/dining area has all the necessary appliances and utensils (2 coffee makers, a microwave, oven, and the necessary beach blenders!). The living room is large, overlooks the large back deck and private boardwalk to the ocean. The owners are easy to deal with and communicate well with prospective renters. The only note I have for renters is that you need to bring your own beach towels, and beach chairs (although there were several serviceable beach chairs when we were there that had been left by previous renters). Also, bring some soap. Although each bath had some liquid soap at the sink, there was no soap or gel for the tubs and showers. This may have been a one time oversight, and in NO way detracted from our enjoyment of this beautiful home! I would definitely rent it again. It is an A+ property."

  • Better than the pictures online!!

    "Ever get let down by the pictures not adding up to what you thought you were paying for??? Not the problem here at this beautiful beach house. The windows were bright and clean and the view was amazing each and every sunrise!! Ever say in your mind.... I wish this rental property had this... And didn't... Not here. This owner has everything covered to enjoy your stay. Everything needed is there! Beach Chairs, Beach Umbrellas, toys for the kids you name it. We will be back as this home was delivered super clean and the communication with the owner was always timely. Your family will have a stay they will never forget!"
