About Cindy Ashley

After 28 years, Cyn has retired from a teaching career. I am involved with the South Carolina Master Naturalist program, Yoga and Nia.

Den, an architect, continues to design and build projects. Ashley's tree house is one of my best projects. Cyn and I hand cleared the property and then spent a year building this magical place.

Cindy Ashley purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Cindy Ashley chose Charleston Area

We were driving down Cooper street and noticed an almost failing down, loosely nailed " for sale" sign. The property, looking thru the dense jungle growth, had major oak and palms trees. It seemed that this property had never been cleared. We fell in love with the possibility of living in this beautiful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Designing and then building one's own tree house retreat is truly a joyous adventure. We did not want to build a house at a beach but rather a beach house. Our family and friends enjoy the openness, the unexpected sculpture of the spaces. The morning view from the upstairs sleeping loft into the curved oak limbs in a treat and great way to start the day. One morning there was a raccoon in that tree looking back at us!

An early morning walk through the old coast guard station to watch the sunrise at Morris lighthouse is a great way to start a day. Then a short car trip to Bowens Island to eat shrimp and oysters, drink and watch the sunset over the marsh is a spectacular ending.

Wonder accommodations! The house was perfect for our 2 adult and 2 children stay.

  • 5 of 5

The tree house is a very well located charming home. We walked easily to the beach and the Main Street dining and shopping area. We rented bikes as well and rode nearly every street on the island. The home was spic & span and stocked with everything we needed, including complimentary coffee. I won't bother to look elsewhere when we return to Folly. A truly great stay!

Unique property walking distance to beach and 3 blocks from restaurants and bars

  • 5 of 5

Dennis and Cindy have designed and built a very interesting looking, eye catching beach home that is uniquely appointed yet very comfortable. The property is 2 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks from Center street where the restaurants and bars are located, The owners met us upon arrival and provided helpful tips for our stay. We had a great time and would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Follly Beach.

Best beach house ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely amazing! The owners really go out of there way to provide everything you need during your stay. We were greeted by them with a tour and immediately walking in the house it not only looks beautiful but it feels like home. Very clean, comfortable beds and pillows, and plenty of towels including beach towels. Perfect location to everything! Our only regret is not staying longer! Can wait to go back!

Unique Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at the treehouse on Folly! The house has so much character and the location to the beach and center of town couldn't have been better. We celebrated my son's 16th birthday and the kids loved it! Cindy and Dennis were wonderful hosts and provided so many handy little accommodations. I would highly recommend!
