Guestbook comments from the owner
I'm sorry I've taken so long to let you know... the survey that VRBO (or whoever) sent had some kind of error so I could not respond but I wanted to let you know that our girls trip was the BEST! The sleeping arrangements worked great, we loved the big porch and the swing and all the rockers! We had great fun in town every night eating (and eating ice cream!) We had a blast on the beach, being chased to the rocks by the tide! And the surfers!! We hope to make this a yearly trip!
Thanks so much!!

This is our third year staying at Heavenly Days, and as usual everything was wonderful! Gracie is a pleasure to work with and very responsive. The property is always clean, comfortable, and very spacious. The location is perfect with the beach being just a short stroll across the street. We enjoyed the beach, relaxation, and porch sittin'...watching the dolphins and surfers. We are already planning for a visit next year. Thank you Gracie and family for sharing your home!
Much Needed Getaway!
After a year of stress, this was a much needed getaway. We rented the house without any expectations and left with wonderful memories and a refreshed spirit. We invited two other couples, and there was plenty of space for all of us. We had a boil the first night, a huge brunch on the porch facing the beach the following day, and a nice steak dinner the second night. Everything was clean and comfortable. The only complaint was the biting bugs - no see ums or sandflies or sand fleas or whatever you call them - but they had nothing to do with the property. Just bring insect repellent or you will be swarmed. We found some nice shells on the beach and had a great view of the dolphins feeding in the morning right after sunrise. The owners were great to deal with. We would recommend this beach cottage to our friends and family. Thank you for the wonderful time.
Thanksgiving at Folly
House is perfect for a family reunion - open kitchen and living area work well for cooking meals and hanging out together. View of beach is super and surfers were entertaining. Beds are comfortable and house has everything you need for cooking, etc. Owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs.....have already recommended to other friends.
Wonderful Beach Vacation!
What a wonderful beach cottage on Folly beach! We came with 2 families, including 4 adults and 4 kids ages 8, 9, 10, and 11. It was our first visit to Folly beach and the Charleston area. The cottage was perfect. Gracie was wonderful and easy to work with! Lillie left us a personal note and a bag of jelly beans for the kids (we arrived the day before Easter)--which really was a nice, welcoming touch! The cottage was more spacious than I thought based on the pictures. We had plenty of room for everyone. Our favorite was the rocking on the front porch, watching the surf, dolphins swim by, and our kids play on the beach. The back sunroom area was a hit for our kids--they instantly claimed as their own. They played cards at the table, watched movies and all ended up sleeping back there! I like this part of the island--it is not too crowded, and the picture on this site shows just how close the beach access is. Our kids could easily come back and forth. We also all enjoyed the quick, easy 15 min drive to Charleston, as we did a lot of sightseeing while in the area. It was wonderful to have both a "city" and "beach" vacation--all in one! We would love to return to stay at this beach house again!
Perfect Beach House- Essence of a Folly Experience
As usual, our stay at this property was perfect. We have been renting this house for years at all times of the year. This was our first Christmas stay and we made some great memories. The layout of this house is great for family gatherings whether you have children or grandparents. You can't beat the location and the views. The porch and deck are great especially if you have some rainy weather and still want to enjoy the beach. There is plenty of room for eating and socializing and also quiet space in the back of the house if you want to avoid too much togetherness. The owners have thought of everything you need for a memorable vacation or quick get- away. If you are looking for a genuine Folly Beach experience without out the hustle and bustle of commercialism beaches, this is it. We will rent this property again!
We had a fantastic time. Could not have picked a nicer place to stay. Gracie was so nice and accommodating. Looking forward to going back and staying again! Everything was so close. Beach view was great. Watched the dolphins every morning!
From the Owner
“In the early 1950's, our uncle purchased property at Folly Beach. He and his wife named their first cottage--a converted trailer--Heavenly Days. After many years they built a house. It was destroyed during Hurricane Hugo, and at the age of 80, he built another Heavenly Days. Our mother (his sister-in-law) purchase a lot and built our existing house. After our uncle and aunt sold their house, we were able to take the name 'Heavenly Days' for our house. And, hopefully, we will have Heavenly Days to share with renters for many years to come!”
