An absolutely perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! From the front of the house you have views of the ocean, and from the back of the house, you have views of the beautiful greens of the marsh. The house has several porches - two large (back is screened in) on first floor and two smaller ones (front & back) off of upstairs master. The back porch has two tables to eat meals along with really comfortable seating area to enjoy the sunsets. The front porch also has a comfortable seating area. The inside of the house has everything you need - the kitchen is well equipped for cooking, there is a large TV in the living room (for rainy days) which is in front of really, really comfy furniture. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and really encourage you to rest and relax. The location of the house is a short drive into the main part of Folly Beach where you can pick up anything you might need or grab a bite at one of several restaurants right there. Alternatively, Charleston is a quick (and easy) 20 minute drive! This is a great house in a great location.

Amazing Porch and views!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely great visit! The front porch was amazing - we probably spent at least half of every day out there with the kids playing, napping in the hammock, or relaxing in the evenings. The view is amazing from both sides of the house. The beach is literally across the street, and was not too busy even on the weekends. All the necessities were there and, with just a few adjustments, we were able to be comfortable with our two small children playing all through the house. Our dog camped out on the stair landing or on the porch and loved her beach walks. It was comfortable and relaxed and we hope to be able to go back!

Great Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home!!! Love this place! The comfort and coziness of home. This is not a typical beach house with all the viewing pleasure you can stand. Just sitting on the couch and look to the left and see the beach and look to the right and see the marsh. It doesn't get any better than this. The area around is quite and family friendly. Thank you Jack we look forward to "Coasting at 1566" in the Fall!

A Great Time Had By ALl

  • 5 of 5

Location, view and house amenities couldn't be beat. we were looking for a spacious house where everyone could be on different schedules yet feel comfortable just lounging at their leisure - even the dog found it relaxing. Great house with plenty of space with a great unobstructed view of the ocean. Owner was quite pleasant and made sure everything was in working order. The home is about 2 miles from the center of Folly, so it's a little quieter at the beach - plenty of beach to call one's own. We certainly will come back for our next Charleston vacation.

Owner's Response: Whomever stays a "Coasting at 1566" usually returns the next year. It's a fine house with beautiful views of the marsh, and the ocean. And it's not some sterile rental house. It's a home.

We've had nothing but rain since returning from our wonderful long weekend at Folly Beach, making our time there and the beautiful weather even more memorable. Windows and doors everywhere in this beach home created an open and airy feeling and views were excellent in all directions. Location is convenient - near enough to the main area of Folly but far enough away to take advantage of the ocean and beach without all the traffic. Owner's eclectic taste added to the feeling that we were staying in a home and not a sanitized rental property.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks with our family (2 teenage boys, 2 college aged girls and 3 labradoodles). The location can not be beat... Estuary off the back porch (amazing sunsets) and Oceanside off the front porch.

Lovely shade in the back in the mornings and lovely breeze and shade in the front in the afternoons. The dogs loved sitting on the porches with the wind in their ears! Kids loved walking across the street to the beach.

Did the twilight kayak trip from Bowens Island one night with Charleston Outdoor Adventures and it was magical. We also did their dolphin cruise (must have seen 20-30 dolphins!) and my husband and son spent a morning fishing with them. Great company!

The home is spacious and well equipped and the owner was a joy to work with. You can see for his collections around the house that he has lead a very interesting life!

We would definitely rent Coastings again!!!
