We Love Folly Beach...

5 of 5
...AND we love the Shell House! Our week-long stay was even better than we anticipated. Plenty of space for everyone, easy for all to come and go after we coded in a simple pass #, SO close to everything, especially Bert's. (Yay Bert's!) Went to Charleston one or two days, but mostly wanted to stay in our Folly Bubble. Owner checked in with us by phone on our first day to see if we needed anything. We didn't have any issues with the house, clean and lovely, kitchen implements were well stocked, was perfect for our wants and needs, and we will definitely rent again. Also highly recommend renting bikes to bike to the lighthouse (thanks Matt). If you want to be close to all that Folly has to offer, this is the place.
