Everything was great! Upon checking in we noticed that the tv was broken and the owner personally went out and bought a new one to replace it within a couple of hours. My mom also requested a coffee maker with a pot instead of the Keurig provided and they immediately brought us one from upstairs! Great location and very comfortable accommodations. Thank you!

This apartment was perfect for our family of four’s beach trip! Plenty of space, very clean, and loved the amenities. Having an outdoor shower and space to hang out towels and swimsuits out to dry was so nice. Beach items (including umbrella and toys) were available, as well as plenty of dishes and pans for us to cook meals and enjoy the days we ate at the apartment. And less than a five minute walk to the beach! The host went above and beyond by letting us check in a day early, due to issues with another place we had originally booked for our stay. My family and I have decided if this place is available, we will always try to stay here for our yearly beach trip!

We had a great stay here! We love Folly, and this was a great find. Just off the beach, beautifully decorated, and the beds were super comfortable! We really enjoyed the cute.side yard, especially with having our dog with us. Check in was a breeze too. We'd stay here again. Thanks for a great experience!

We had a great stay for Memorial Day weekend! The property has very convenient parking (we were able to fit 4 cars) for friends to park for a nice beach day! The beach access is about two doors down and super convenient and the beach there is relatively quiet because of the prime location! Would definitely recommend!

The house is super cute and clean. There is a lot of natural sunlight even though it's a basement unit. Beautiful fenced yard for my dog and son to play in. The house is very conveniently located to the beach. It would have been nice to have clean outdoor cushions for the furniture. Also, the toilet off of the bedrooms didn't really flush properly upon arrival. Overall it was a great place to stay and would definitely recommend!

The apartment is delightful, with 5 doors to the outside and a private courtyard and screened in porch. Public beach access is very close, and the amenities in-town are within walking distance. The smoke alarm is very sensitive, but the vent above the stove vents to the outside - Don't be like me and remember to turn it on when cooking!

I’ve grown up on Folly Beach since I was a little girl. It’s my favorite place ever. The kids and I had to do a quick trip down for family business. This spot was perfect, we were able to get in and out and our dog had a great time too. Would totally stay again. Just need to know where the outside trash cans are.

We stayed here at the beginning of November with our two pups and had a great time! The place is spacious, well appointed and the half bath is such a great bonus. Not to mention the dedicated off street parking!! The courtyard was a great fenced in place for the pups to get some exercise as well. It’s a first floor apartment with people living above so we did hear walking around but it wasn’t much and never very early or late. I would 100% recommend for anyone to stay here!

We lucked up on this rental last year when we were staying next door and we needed a couple more rooms to accommodate our large group. This is the perfect cottage for us with our dog. The garden area, as well as the screened porch, is a nice place to relax with a cup of coffee or an adult beverage and you are right across the street from the beach. We look forward to staying here again next fall.

We highly enjoyed the location, primarily the ease it was to get to the beach (about a minute walk). They also provided a few beach toys, chairs, coolers, etc. Off side parking which is amazing and hard to find on Folly. The home was far away enough from downtown that the beach was not crowded. There were a few things that we noted on our check out sheet that needed attention, nothing major. Would definitely recommend!

We had a great stay & relaxing time at the Beach Hive! Our family of four (with 2 teenage boys) & small dog found the accommodations great. So close to the beach & downtown Folly was also close enough, but far enough away for all of us to enjoy our privacy, peace & quiet too! The garden courtyard was awesome & nice for our pup as well. The outdoor shower & beach chair, boogie boards & coolers were extremely useful too. We did have a small issue with a small leak from one of the toilets, but upon notifying the property management, it was very quickly addressed. The grill had a bit to be desired, but it in no way put a damper on our family time away. We had a great week & look forward to coming back soon!

We enjoyed the beautiful apartment and garden so much. The beds were so comfy, the bath and a half were wonderful for four people. The kitchen served our needs well, and the shower in the screened porch for "after beach" was perfect. We appreciated the off street parking too! The location was wonderful, so close to the beach yet a quiet neighborhood! A short drive to the restaurants was not a problem as the beach was our focus and it provided well with the find of over 200 sharks teeth in 3 days!

We rented this unit for a family beach week. We have two young kids and a very energetic doodle. This rental was a perfect fit for us. The courtyard is large and lovely and the fountain is a really nice touch. We had a lot of rain during our stay and I must say I opted to bring our dog on walks as opposed to letting him out in the courtyard, because the area there was way too muddy and although we washed his paws it's just not a good scene to have a muddy doodle in a rental. For those with kids - We had our kids sleep in the king bedroom while my husband and I took the full/queen. The kids didn't love sharing a bed at first, but they got over it, and it's so spacious that it didn't matter ultimately. The screened porch has an awesome outdoor shower as well as - to my surprise - a couple of large coolers (one with wheels) as well as beach toys and boogie boards which our kids LOVED. The interior feels spacious and the decor is nice and breezy/beachy while also feeling luxurious. Note---there is no dishwasher at this property but I really didn't miss it. The location was a real draw for me with this property and was even better than I'd expected. We had just a 3-4 minute walk over to the 7th street beach access. We could walk 6 minutes to the awesome playground around the corner (5th street). We did walk to town a couple of times even with a 4- and 7- year old. Sometimes we went through East Cooper and other times we just strolled up the beach. Overall just a really wonderful and peaceful place to spend some quality time with family. This was exactly the trip we needed. We will be back.

There were 2 couples in our party and we all enjoyed our stay at The Beach Hive. The kitchen and living areas were adequate, and we really enjoyed the outdoor areas for relaxation but privacy. We even had some unexpected wildlife sightings! We used the provided bikes and the parking was very easy, big enough for 2 cars or a car and a golf cart if needed. The back (king) bedroom was rather dark with a mattress protector that made the bed very warm. Some further basic amenities would have been appreciated (coffee filters, etc), but overall we enjoyed the place. The location was far enough away from the main part of town that the beach was not too busy. Overall a good stay that suited our needs.

This is a very nice, sweet, comfortable place, very close to the beach. It was an easy, fast walk, even with three kids. The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off and not bringing sand into the house. Everything was very nice and the place actually has even more amenities than are listed on the listing. Also the place that manages it is super fast and responsive in answering any questions. Also very nice!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Beach Hive. The apartment was very clean and spacious enough for 2 couples and a dog. I really loved the courtyard. We were able to open the sliding glass door to let our dog out, enjoy a cup of coffee/beverage and hear the ocean across the street. The center of Folly was a little less than a mile away and was a nice walk. We look forward to returning to this nice home.

Sweet, small apartment across the street from the beach. The biggest surprise was the lovely private garden, nicely landscaped and enhanced by the calming sound of water from the wall fountain. Keyless entry made check-in a breeze, and the apartment was clean and bright. October is a great time to visit Folly Beach - quiet and open, expansive beach, which was a plus during this time of covid. We would stay here again!

The Beach Hive provides a great escape with pretty close beach access. No one would argue that this two bedroom apartment is fancy but it is an entirely functional space for a long family beach weekend (including my 6-year-old). I'd bring my family back to this rental again.
