fantastic week, coming back next year!
We had a wonderful week in Folly Beach. The house is beautiful with 5 comfortable bedrooms, ocean AND marsh views from several porches and just steps from the beach. It's so deightful to enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the waves and watching either the moonrise over the ocean or the sunset over the marsh. The kitchen was well furnished and we ate most meals in after getting fish or shrimp at Crosby's nearby. Our dogs loved the beach walks and swims, and the kids enjoyed body surfing and boogie boards. This was our first time at Folly- have gone to Sullivan's Island for a decade but wanted to try something new. Comparison wise Folly has a few more people, (though not a lot as far up the beach as this house) and the water is a little rougher (that's why people come to Folly to surf). Price wise Folly is much better, but in Sullivan's we could walk to restaurants, here we either drove or rode bikes the 2.5 miles. (We had a blast on bikes with miles and miles to explore). No sharks teeth on Sullivan's (have to go down to the Pier to find them on Folly, but we found many). This is by far a more beautiful house compared to a much more expensive house we have rented on Sullivan's for years, and so after a family vote we are going .... back to Folly. With older kids now they thought downtown Folly was more fun, they liked the bigger waves and the ocean views.
May 2019 - Folly Beach
The house and location was great for our family vacation. Nice large common areas and plenty of deck space to enjoy the view.
Fun at the beach
Beautiful house, main floor great for family and friends to hang out, great views of the beach from the deck. I would definitely come back.
An amazing stay
The house was in amazing condition, plenty of space for all 8 adult guests without feeling cramped.
Nothing can beat the stunning views from the multiple decks! We would love to return again someday!
With a mostly unobstructed view of the beach, this home feels oceanfront even though beach access is truly just a minute away. The house is spacious yet cozy. We hope to return!
good times at Folly Beach
Home was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Deck had view of sunrise. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. High ceilings on living floor. Board games and puzzles kept us all entertained when weather didn't cooperate. 3 couches to lounge on inside. Owner was very responsive to inquiries. Boogie boards, beach chairs and beach toys at house. Minor details - more for awareness of others - coffee machines are drip [not K-cups] and recycling is only picked up every other Monday, so it is important to get recycling out early in the week]. Hope to visit in the future!
