"I spent a week at this townhouse on Folly Beach and my family had an absolute blast. The house was very comfortable and perfect for a beach outing with a family, even a large one like my own. One room has accommodations for fours (although best if they are kids), then a nice master suite and a main level third bedroom. The kitchen is not huge but just fine for a week at the beach. There is a screened in porch and an upper level deck off the master. If I had one minor criticism, it would be that the kitchen was not quite as well stocked as I would have hoped - we had a couple of kids that came down later that had to bring down a couple of large pans for us as the ones onsite were either small or in very bad shape. This was a minor point and we would have made do no matter the case. The things that we loved about the place: beach was walk-able, about 10 mins with little people. Many people had golf carts and they were available to rent but we did not do this. This condo is on the far side from the beach, which makes access to the inland waterway very quick. This proved great for us as we brought paddle boards and these do much better in calm waters and you don't want to haul those long distances. There is a pool which is not huge but my kids all enjoyed it immensely. They have a grill onsite which is perfect for those that like to grill. The property was well maintained, clean, and had everything we expected from Wi-Fi to laundry facilities.
I think the real magic though is Folly Beach itself. This is a great spot, with about ten restaurants that are all walk-able and we did not have a bad meal. Which Doctor and the Lost Dog were probably our favorite, and Loggerheads was a nice spot with a great house beer that is terrific. The beach was great - not overly crowded but with lifeguards, nice sand, great surf (some days exceptionally large surf great for the big kids less so for the littles). There was a Surf School right at Folly as well so if you ever wanted to learn or let your kids try it was pretty affordable and right there. We tried the farmer's market they have on Wednesday and found it rather small but we got a few nice treats. There is a larger market on Sunday on James Island (<10 miles away) which had a pretty good selection. If you can hit the Charleston farmers market on Saturday that is fantastic - huge and so many great items. Stop by the Angel Tree which is about 20 mins away - super cool ancient oak."
