Super Comfortable and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for 2 couples, a family of 4, or in our case, 2 friends getting away from our hectic lives. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and utensils, the furniture is comfortable, and there are plenty of linens. And the screened in porch is perfect for breakfast or evening cocktail. The lot across the street blocks the view of the beach, but you can hear the waves from the porch and bedrooms - delightful! Just cross the street and down a short path to the beach. It is only a 15 minute drive across the marches to downtown Charleston, and 25 to the historic plantations. Don't shop for groceries at Bert's - very limited options and even more expensive. Publix and Harry Tetter Grocery are just 15 min away. We ate ate 3 of the restaurants downtown Folly - enjoyed all. The sunset is seen at the west end of the island, and while it was too cold during our visit to hike to the east end to see Morris Lighthouse, I hear it is worth the trek.

We both enjoyed spending our days sight-seeing and "coming home" to the comfort of this cottage. The long vanity with 2 sinks was especially important to us girls - LOL! Thank you Judy and Ray for letting us stay in your little cottage by the sea!

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

I loved our stay. Folly is a special place! The cottage is very comfortable and sweetly decorated. The beach access is perfect. I loved that it is shaded and tropical feeling. It's a very short walk and is pleasant. The only thing I wish we had was an outdoor shower. The water hose did help a lot though!

Very nice house, super clean, less crowded beach but still can bike to downtown quickly. Very enjoyable trip, everything as expected and very comfortable, would stay here again.

The beach house was just what we needed for our stay. Everything we needed was available. The very short walk to the beach was ideal! My favorite place was the screened porch but the "no see-um's" found me anyway! Would definitely stay again!
