I would look elsewhere for a rental!

  • 2 of 5

The house was nice but I would look elsewhere on Folly Beach for a vacation rental. I have rented many different houses and condos using VRBO and HomeAway and this was by far the worst I rented. When my wife and I arrived at the home we were greeted by the owner. He showed us the house rules posted on the refrigerator and told us that someone would be there later in the week to pick up the recycling on the porch (which did not happen) and to fix a broken faucet in the master bath(which also did not happen). As he left he told us to be sure not break any windows. Mind you it is just my wife and I and we are both 50+. I will agree with the other reviews that the view is very nice. The front porch has a view of the ocean and the back porch has a view of the marsh. The beach was just a short walk across East Ashley Avenue. We did notice some kind of foul smell in the air, usually first thing in the mornings at low tide. We assumed it was from the marsh. In the evenings the tide would come in the smell would disappear but so would the beach. There is a house on the beach right across the street. Every evening the waves would come right up to their deck. This made walking on the beach in the evening impossible. We would drive further down East Ashley Ave and walk on the beach there where the tide was not a problem.Overall we thought that the owner put very little effort into making the house welcoming to the renters. We felt the property looked more like the owner had lived there for many years and did very little to update it for renters. The house was far from clean when we arrived. The kitchen utensils were greasy and dirty. The furniture was dated, there was a broken lamp shade in the living room, the master bedframe was broken, the porch steps were old and splintered, and the sheets / towels / bed spreads were stained. The kitchen could also be much better equipped for a family to cook in for a week. Finally there was black mold in the master bath in the tub and on the shower curtain.The house is pet friendly however the area for dogs is under the house. Under the house we found broken glass and beer caps in the sand and old splintered plywood where the dogs could easily be injured. In the front of the house there is a big bush. Every time we walked out to the beach a rat would run in to the bush. I did some research and Folly Beach has a problem with Norway rats and professional removal is recommended. Additionally, I a

Owner's Response: This was the worst renter that I have ever had. They had a house party...they left a mountain of garbage on the back porch. Most of it was empty containers of alcoholic beverages. It wasn't only he and his wife. There looked like about four other 30 something's. They destroyed a lamp shade. The house, including the freezer was full of sand. They obviously had been raised in a barn. I have never kept any part of a deposit, but I kept $200.00 of his, and told him that he could never return to my house. And that is why he has written these derogatory lies about my house. And further more, I built this house in 1996, and it's been my personal home. I started renting it about 3 years ago. It has many pieces of furniture that are family heirlooms, and are very fine. This is not your sterile rental house. It is a very comfortable house. There are views from every part of the house. Original art works cover all of the walls. There are house plants that are very old. Some are over 40 years old. This is a fine place to relax. It rents to families. I do not permit any events, weddings, house parties, etc. I think that the person that wrote this very unfair review, judging from the amount of empty beer cans, wine bottles, and liquor bottles, he was probably drunk, and decided, after I told him that he would never be able to come back to the house again, and kept a small part of his deposit to clean up the mess that he and his house party made of the house, and 3 months later he decided to write this review.

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.

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.
