Location

The city of Folly Beach is a small barrier island approximately 6 miles long and 1/2 mile wide, located 8 short miles from historic downtown Charleston. The Atlantic Ocean borders it's south shore, while the Folly River runs along the northern bank. Morris Island is separated by Lighthouse Creek on the East end and Bird Key and the Stono River lie to the West. Originally called Folly Island, it is primarily a residential and family vacation beach. Folly is home to interesting restaurants, bars and shops, most of which are located on Center Street. Folly offers a variety of environmental sites, recreation activities and a unique flavor of island living. Also known as 'The Edge of America', Folly's reputation as a classic beach community dates back to the 1950's where the pavilion and pier stand today was a small amusement park with a sign that read 'Folly's Playground,' Folly still carries that laid back feeling, flip flops are appropriate for any outing.

Charleston (8 miles from Folly): South Carolina Aquarium, Historic Carriage Rides, Splash Zone Water Park (James Island County Park), Golf Courses, The Hunley (Historic Submarine), Historic Homes Tours, Charleston Market, Ghost Tours, Downtown Farmer's Market, Fine Dining, Patriots Point (USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier), Fort Sumter.

FiFi's Fabulous Folly

  • 3 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was adequately helpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was very happy with the location.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was spectacular; just across the street from the beach with the marsh directly behind. The towels which are provided were of good quality. The status of the house left something to be desired! The sheets on our bed didn't fit and so we spent the whole week uncomfortable and continually adjusting the fit. My husbands king sized pillow had a normal pillowcase and so a third of his pillow was exposed. The flooring was soft underfoot in the bathroom and in the hall. The dresser in the bedroom and the end table in the living room were covered with sand.(So we had to clean as soon as we arrived) There was a cigarette butt left in a shell on the front porch. One has to pass through decaying fruit that is dropped by a tree as one enters and departs; the area is swarming with flies. The dishwasher door doesn't open properly as it hits the handle of the stove. One has to pull it out and pull to the right and then shove it back in. The kitchen is not well stocked and I was glad that we brought some of our own pots and pans/knives and cutting boards.(If you're renting a house that holds 8, the supplies should be supportive of 8) These are all 1st world problems, I realize. However, the last time my family went to the beach, my son was potty training; he is now 14. This vacation meant a lot to us and while we enjoyed our stay, it was less than ideal. I feel taken advantage of in that the cost was not cheap and the list of issues was long.

Reviewer Comments:

The dryer did not work and we only found out after we had done a wash. The management company knew as they had ordered a new one prior to us coming. The shower in the main bathroom leaked and management had to be called twice for that. Fitted sheets on king beds did not fit and kept coming off because on ly one side would fit on the mattress.

A Wonderful Week

The property manager was very helpful.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This property worked very well for us. It was the first trip to the ocean for our 3 year old. The location of the house was fabulous. The layout of the house allowed for us to hang out while our son was in bed asleep. The only bummer was that the screens for the screened in porch were ripped from the frame. I ended up using duct tape each afternoon to temporarily fix the screens, which allowed us to enjoy bug free dinners while watching the sunset on the marsh.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location--walking distance to the beach. Other than that, the house was filthy. Mold on the ceilings, mildew in the tubs and on the shower curtains, dust everywhere (packed into the a/c vent), and roaches. Screen in the patio was falling apart. Beds were uncomfortable, and I would not sleep under the covers. Thankfully, we brought our own pillows. Broken ice machine in the freezer. I would not advise staying here.
