Reviewer Comments:

Loved the Folly House! It was cute and close to everything! We had a great time. Only problem was we saw multiple roaches. Not palmetto bugs, roaches. We only stayed 2 nights I was surprised to see so many in such a short period of time. Unacceptable for the price we paid to stay.

It's the beach! Laundry filter needed a scrub. Double bunk bed not fit for adults. No smoke alarms installed. Fridge freezes produce. Rug and sofa filthy. Over priced, but it's the beach, so have a good time!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was great! It's definitely smaller than the pictures make it out to be (really low ceilings) and there were a few experiences with cockroaches (full size and babies, so there's a nest somewhere). But overall it was a perfect location! So close to the beach and a nice walk to Center street.

Very cute and clean house within walking distance to Bert's Downtown and public beach access. You really can't ask for much more and the deck on the house is perfect!

Reviewer Comments:

The house is in a great location, very cute, well-maintained. It is a bit smaller than it looks in the pictures, but still plenty of room with the open kitchen and living room area. The deck is amazing and is definitely the best part of the house! My only complaint is that there were a couple of dead cockroaches and a baby live one in the house, and a dead large one just outside the front door.

Reviewer Comments:

The Folly House is nicely decorated and the deck is really nice. However, the house has some very low ceilings and light fixtures. It should really be disclosed that someone over 6'2" should not rent this house. It is totally unsafe! My son hit his head on several light fixtures. Fortunately, no injuries. Furthermore, when I checked out and explained this to the office staff, they really didn't seem to care. That was disappointing.
