"When we travel to the beach each year for vacation, we are on the lookout for a home that quite frankly is nicer than our own and has a few luxuries. That can be hard to find with beach rentals with their seashell lamps, horrible colors and tacky wallpaper where everything is nautical or seashell in theme.
Unit A at 201 East Cooper though is beyond luxurious. So tastefully decorated and modern. The hardwood floors are beautiful,. the couches modern and comfy and the beds beyond perfect. We especially loved the touch of the bunk beds where our daughter spent a lot of time hanging out in her own private world when we were not at the beach. And the location is superb. We barely ever got in our car to go anywhere except dinner one night and a Riverdogs game with fireworks another night. Other than that, we didn't ever move nor did we need to. The unit is literally steps from the beach. We loved having it be above Bert's as well which is 24/7 in case we wanted a snack, drink, breakfast or needed some toiletries.
Juila and Omar are fantastic. Very responsive. They are great hosts and really own that Folly vibe. We got to meet Omar downstairs at Bert's a few times, he's always great to interact with. When we were missing toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags, all we had to do was go downstairs and grab them from him. Really nice having them involved in the property and in the area daily in case anything comes up.
Having Chico Feo across the street with amazing music was very cool and helped set the right vacation vibe. We loved the people watching too at all times of day and night! Loved sitting on the porch reading or watching people come and go.
The only thing we'd recommend to Omar and Julia is to check out the unit for a few things. Both of the light bulbs on the front and back porch are out and need to be replaced and the lamp in the master bedroom with the King bed does not work. The unit can also be a little dark, especially the kitchen which is hard to see around at night. Very minor things. Also, we'd love to have known that there are no cooking supplies such as cooking oil, salt and pepper and seasonings. We did have to go out and buy those. Having those stocked would be a nice and expected touch.
Overall, highly recommend this unit and we will be returning for sure and telling our friends about it!
