  • Summer 2016 Vacation at Folly Beach

    "Very comfortable house for four people. Had everything we needed for a weeklong vacation in August. Super location - walk to beach, bike to town. Free use of all kinds of stuff, such as bikes, beach gear, nets, etc. John and Amy could not have been nicer or more helpful. Excellent sources of local knowledge, and super advice on when and where to go crabbing!"

  • Amazing vacation

    "First off, Cathy and Larry are amazing hosts. You aren't just renting a home, you are renting their home which they take great pride in. You could not ask for a better location as it is diagonally across from the 8th Ave beach access. We were at the beach in under one minute from our doorstep. This was very important to me as I was traveling with my 70 year old mother and I didn't want her to have to go far. The beautiful home is far enough away from the noise of Center St but close enough to get their in under 10 mins. I do recommend a golf cart as parking in Folly during the high season is at a premium. We had a large vehicle with a substantial trailer hitch so we knew a golf cart was the way to go. There aren't really sidewalks to walk on to get to town so we found this easier. The house is beautifully appointed with all that you could ever want. We traveled with 2 small dogs and they loved the fenced in yard. It's very private and spacious for the lot. It was a 20 min easy drive to beautiful downtown Charleston where top notch shopping and restaurants await. It was such a spectacular vacation for the first time ever, we've already reserved the house for the same week next year! Also, rent chairs from the Folly Beach chair company. They will set up and take down your beach chairs and umbrella daily. Wonderful service and worth every penny in our book. Can't wait for next year, thank you Larry, Cathy and Buster! ❤️"

  • Exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do the property justice. Relaxing vacation house.

    "First, I would stay there again in a heartbeat. I could complain about little things, but they didn't affect our time there with a couple exceptions. The WiFi never did work for us. I didn't notify anyone, because we used our iDevices to access the Internet. I should have mentioned this before we left in all fairness. My biggest complaint was the lighting. The light switches for lights that did work were in weird places -- often very far from the lights they operate. Some switches seemed to do nothing. The outside lights didn't seem to work at all except for the spotlights. However, the spots must be turned off after 10 PM, at least during part of the year because of turtles on the beach. The living and dining area was somewhat dark. The bulbs are too dim, and there aren't enough lights and lamps. The bedrooms and bathrooms were dim or lacking enough lights I thought. The washer and dryer are outside under the house. While this isn't any real problem by itself, there are no lights -- or at least that could get to light up. This is a security concern; though the area felt very safe in general. Safely navigating the stairs during the day requires care and more so at night; the stairs going up to the deck to the house are rather steep. The location is secluded and quiet. The beach is great; step off the private deck onto the beach itself. The house was clean, and the kitchen was well stocked though the knives are very dull. The beds were comfortable. There were plenty of additional pillows blankets and towels. There were enough cleaning supplies and a working vacuum cleaner; this place is literally right on the beach -- there's a lot of sand. The place is decorated in a sort of whimsical 'beachy' way with some clever little touches. This place definitely does not have the sterile condo-like look. The living and dining area is large with plenty of seating. The view from the living room to the ocean was spectacular. The deck was amazing. I loved sitting there on the rocking chairs and getting some sun in the ocean breeze. Sitting out there in the morning before the sun made me want to get up early the next day. Sitting out there at night looking out over the water listening to the waves and looking up at the stars...if that doesn't relax you, I don't know what will. The view and the deck made our vacation. We love the Charleston and the area. There is so much to see and do, and so much history. Dealing with Chris was easy and a friendly experience."

  • Hated to leave and go back to reality......

    "Well I am back at work, it was really tough after spending a week at this beach house...I keep thinking can't wait to go back next August...spent the week with my sister, best friend and her husband...was the best. This house is so nice from the moment you walk in the back door, and look straight at the ocean..oh my, loved every minute of it...this was the second time we had rented this home and will plan on it again next year!!! We actually only left the house one day and that was to go into Charleston for the day, rest of the time was spent enjoying laying on the beach, the deck or just being in the patio listening to the ocean....wonderful!!!!!"
