All in all, this was the right venue for us, as our grad school daughter lives on the island and we were going hack and forth between her place and this beach property. Communications with the owner were very easy. (We had no problems, just questions about things.) Access to the beach was easy, although the weather didn’t cooperate. The only draw back i would say is that the place sleeps 6 but i think 6 adults would have felt very cramped, especially with less than ideal weather.
Great location and property. Ample room for all. One full bathroom inside was hectic for four adults since the outside pool house bathroom was not working. All and all everything went well. We will definitely be back.
Space was clean but parking was very tight .
It was a great and relaxing stay
Great place to stay very convenient to the beach and all the shops and restaurants, pool was great to come relax in after the waves convenient bath house next to pool! Highly recommended this place to stay! Now My thoughts on folly is its more for couples and single people, not so much for kids alot of the town has the bar/pub atmosphere, not a whole lot for the kids but beach was nice not too crowded, overall we had a great trip!
It was exactly what we needed. Very happy with our stay.
Really enjoyed our stay
Clean, safe, and quiet with an easy walk to the beach. The use of the pool was a very nice benefit.
We enjoyed our time staying at this location and the property owners were great. The place was clean and comfortable. We highly recommend it
Host was very friendly. nice place to stay
This property was a perfect 10. It was exactly true to the listing description. The owners were nice and friendly. Beach access was a super easy 2 block walk. The selling point for me was the private pool. We enjoyed the pool all day long when we weren’t at the beach. The separate full bathroom out by the pool was really convenient and our daughter and son in law used it the entire time as their separate bathroom space. Folly has lots of restaurants within walking distance but we also cooked a couple dinners in the well equipped kitchen. There are lots of souvenir shops on Folly Island-also within walking distance. We found Bert’s Market to be a unique, small town grocery store with everything from complimentary coffee to fresh sushi and dragonfruit sorbet. Folly Island has a relaxed Carribean vibe that our family loved. Folly, you were good to us-we may be back!
Had a great time as this was our first trip to FB. Great access to beach, dining, etc… Pool definitely a bonus.
Great location and inviting pool made Folly Cottage a good choice for our sister vacay!
This home was perfect for our family and our beach vacation. The response of the host was immediate and helpful. I hope we can stay here again.
It’s a great property with kind neighbors and close to beach and La Bodega!!
The property was nice and clean. The owners who live upstairs were friendly. The walk to the beached to town were a reasonable distance. Would definitely stay there again.
Great location of the property and very clean
The house was clean with nice linens (important to me). The kitchen had everything needed to make cooking away from home easy. The hosts were very friendly.
Location was great!
We loved our stay. It was so cute and absolutely clean. Can’t wait to go again and use the pool. Prefect location to beach and downtown. We had a blast ! Thank you.
Easy to deal with, clean and quiet
We loved the location. Short walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants.
This cute little apartment was perfect for our stay and so close to beach and downtown folly. Would definitely stay again!
The property & location was perfect for our little teacher retreat & virtual seminars. Loved that it was walking distance to beach, shops and restaurants.
We had an amazing family vacation here. The owners were so friendly and helpful and you can’t beat the location. The pool was beautiful and the kids loved it!
Enjoyed our stay at the Folly Cottage. Friendly and hospitable owners. Fantastic location; short walking distance to the beach and restaurant. Exactly the type of decompressing and worry free weekend needed!
Cozy apartment. Great location. Private pool is great.
We enjoyed the property and location. 3 minutes from the beach and Folly's restaurants and shops. Great location.
Great time in the mother-in-law/separate entrance beach house. The salt water pool was refreshing on hot days and perfect to work next to in a big lounge chair. The owners were welcoming and nice. We had a little trouble getting in (code not active) but the property managers fixed it over the phone. Walking distance to beach, Center St, restaurants and shops. Cooked very little at home, but the kitchen had everything you'd need. We were doing remote school & work and the wi/fi was strong enough. Tips for COVID-safe activities: the Morris Island lighthouse walk is lovely, live outdoor music at Chico Feo, beach yoga with Serenity Tree, surf lessons with Isla Surf School, patio dining & Indian fusion at Jack of Cups and Rita's for seafood and kids meals served on a frisbie to keep.
We had a great time! Owners were very hospitable. Place was clean and perfect size for our family of 4 (two young children under 4). We didn’t see a single palmetto bug the whole time either, unlike the other reviews. Lots of streaming services for our kiddos. We never tried to walk to the beach having toddlers but the beach access is about 500 ft away. Very short drive. Enjoyed the pool during the afternoons. Overall great place to stay if you’re wanting some beach days!
Good location for beach access and a short walk to Bert's and to other shops and restaurants. The place is very nicely set up with plenty of rooms and everything you would need!!
Great little place close enough to walk to everything
Great location (2 blocks from the beach) and a real beach vibe. Perfect for Folly.
Great space, inside and out. Lots of homey touches, and friendly owners upstairs. We loved being in this beautiful garden so near the beach, it was a perfect place for us and our grandkids who loved the pool and playing with the balls and beach toys provided. Thanks to the McGees for their to warm welcome!
I had a nice stay with my 14 year old and 12 year old twins. It was nice to have a private pool, and there is plenty of seating room on the pool side.
We had a great time at the Folly Cottage. It’s in walking distance of all the restaurants, stores and the beach. The owner even gave us aloe straight from the plant for our sunburns. Would highly recommend!
Love the vThis house was perfect for us-3 adults and 3 kids(7,6 and 4)! There was plenty of room in the bedrooms, the kitchen was large, very clean, well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. and ALL the appliances worked well. The laundry room was roomy and both machines worked well. I thought we might have an issue with just one bathroom inside, but with the bathroom outside in the pool house we were just fine. Having the bathroom with a shower outside next to the pool was fantastic! After returning from the beach(which was a very short, easy walk with 3 kids in 90 degree heat carrying all our gear), we washed off chairs, sand toys, etc with the convenient hose just outside the gate and then went straight to the pool house with the kids and got them showered and dressed before ever going inside the house( just remember to leave towels and change of clothes in the pool house before leaving for the beach. The pool was perfect when we didn't want to take everything to the beach or when it was just too hot. And it was great to cool off after a morning at the beach, too. We enjoyed grilling by the pool(you need charcoal and lighter). There were plenty of places to sit and eat by the pool- 2 tables /10 chairs, 3 chaise lounges and even a porch swing. And I can't forget the owners who lived upstairs and were delightful and helpful, especially when we didn't have a lighter for the grill!iew
Great property, we will stay here again.
I've nothing but good to say about this place. Three bedroooms, one bath, adequately stocked kitchen (I didn't find a coffee grinder, and had to go back to Berts to grind what I thought was gound coffee), plenty of common space, and a nice little pool - perfect for our young granddaughter. Very clean. Owner's live upstairs, and are pleasant. (And … I left a camera batter and charger, and Folly's Best Rentals retrieved it and sent it to me. Much appreciated.)
Great location, clean, plenty of cooking stuff, baggies, paper towels etc. Bring own beach towels and necessities. Pool is clean and great after day at the beach. Outdoor sitting area is nice. We could only get one channel on the TV. Great place and would return.
Loved the cleanliness and privacy. Beautiful landscaping around unit and pool! Would definately stay here again.
Lots to do. Fun little island. Close to restaurants and shopping
The property location to beach and town is convenient. The pool was great. My kids loved having a pool right outside with clothesline and shower. The outdoor shower/bathroom was not that helpful to us as we preferred indoor one. House itself is ok. Bedding linens very nice (sheets and pillows). Bathroom shows signs of wear (caulking a bit moldy, paint needs touch ups). Vanity very nice. Rug and furniture also a bit used and worn down... good if you don't want to worry your kids may wreck it. Washer and dryer easily available but tricky to start... coffee pot had a hole in the reusable coffee filter. Dishwasher was not the best at cleaning dishes. There is nothing to reuse in kitchen (spices or oil). Make sure you bring your own. Fine supply of pots and pans and glasses etc. owners very nice and friendly with their little poodle dog upstairs. Construction going on in front of the property (deck in top floor) so there were workers walking thru the pool area especially in morning 1 or 2. The pool and location (proximity) to another family's house were my reasons for renting and they did not disappoint. Parking very nice as well. There are no beach chairs, buckets or boogie boards available to borrow as with other rentals so bring your own.
We had a great week at the cottage. Everything about the stay was just what we hoped for. The pool right outside our front door made the week for us. It was a short walk to the beach as well. Having s yard to come out to relax was amazing ..... And we got to use our hammock which made for perfect nights under the stars. The extra bathroom outdoors In the pool house was very handy. Every now and then we could hear walking upstairs.
My fiancé and I have two baby girls and this was our very first family vacation. We could've got a room at the hotel on the beach but I'm all for the experience and I am extremely happy with our choice to stay at the Folly Cottage! It was clean, comfortable, peaceful and we had a pool all to ourselves. We were so close to everything we didn't need to move our car. The owners of the house do live right upstairs, but they are hardly ever home and when they are, you won't even notice. We ran into Mr. Owner twice and he was the sweetest person he introduced himself and shared the history of the house with us which added a little sugar on top of our stay. It a wonderful beach, the locals are great, it's beautiful, and we will be staying again!
Great Place! We've stayed at several different places in Folly Beach, and this was the best. It was roomy and clean and comfortable. The location is just a short walk to Bert's store and also to the downtown area and beach. I think we'll be staying here again .I recommend this to all.
We enjoyed our stay at the Folly Cottage. The 3 bedroom lower level apartment is below the owner's main residence. The unit has a great pool that is mostly private. The owners never shared the pool with us during our stay, however they do walk through this area as they travel from their home to their parking spot. They were nice people but please keep in mind that you are sharing their home so in some aspects this felt like a bed and breakfast stay without formal hosts or breakfast. The home's location was terrific just a short 5 minute walk to the beach and downtown Folly. The unit was clean and the kitchen well stocked for cooking and food prep needs. There was condensation on the AC vent in the bathroom (which I reported to management upon our departure) and some "minor" mold issues in the bathroom as a result of not having an exhaust fan to remove the moisture. The pool house has a full air conditioned bathroom only steps away from the apartment and it was great to use when the apartment bathroom was occupied. This quiet cottage is a value and would be great for a couple or a couple with up to two children. Thanks for allowing us to rent your home for a week at Folly Beach.
My family and I stayed at Folly Cottage for 6 nights. We had a wonderful stay. My kids loved the fact that it was such a short walk to the beach and just minutes away from ice cream on Center St. My favorite part was the private pool (I am not a sand lover, so it was perfect for me.) The house itself was clean and had a feeling as if we were home. I would recommend this cute cottage to anyone.
