PERFECTION on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this exquisite house was wonderful and Folly Time Beach Rentals was great to work with. We had some potential problems but Tom worked it all out before our check in and all went well with check in and throughout the week. It is an exquisite house and marvelously well appointed with every single thing you could possibly need for a superb week - including beach towels for the guests. Our children and grandchildren were most happy with the accommodations and all are in agreement that Gypsy Tide IS where we will gather again in 2020. There is nothing I can possibly to suggest that could have made our week any better. Gypsy Tide and Folly Time ARE both five star! Glad we found this gem. Fantastic porch for late night visits and talks!!!! Hard to leave.......

An amazing property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

From booking to arriving all the way through to leaving we had the perfect experience. The house was incredibly well appointed and great thought and detail put in to it by the owners. The location was obviously perfect and the amenities equally so. We had a wonderful time and I would not hesitate to recommend Gypsy Tide to anyone who wants a complete getaway from the hustle and bustle of normal life.

Best place possible for 8 long-time friends to get together

  • 5 of 5

Gypsy Tide was the perfect place for us. Located on one of the nicest stretches of Folly beach with excellent beach access. Very comfortable rooms, even the bunk beds. Great screened porch, spacious, well-equipped kitchen, wonderful oceanfront views. Tom and Chris were easy to work with. We've already booked for next year!

Amazing Beach house for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our bachelorette of 12 girls. We had the best time and hardly wanted to leave to go anywhere else! The open layout of the kitchen/living room was perfect for hanging out when we weren't on the huge front deck or balcony. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed (smart tv, blow dryer, everything in the kitchen) The beach out front was beautiful, clean, and never crowded (we came in April). I can't wait to have a reason to come back!!
