My friends and I come to Folly Beach every year and this was our favorite house to date! It’s in a perfect location across from the beach and the screened in porch and rooftop deck give you plenty of options to enjoy the outdoors. Sunsets and sunrises were perfect from both!

Rained one day and spent time in enclosed screened in deck which was very relaxing. Beach access is very convenient and just across the street. Also enjoyed roof top deck and front patio. Lots of options here. Home very neat and clean. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I just stayed in the Washout Cottage for 5 nights. What a perfect gem of a place!! The inside of this house was so inviting and we felt so at home! Walking right across the street to the beach was so nice! The location of this home in Folly Beach is in our opinion the best spot on the island! We took advantage of sitting on the roof seating area often. Would come back to this place in a heartbeat!

We really enjoyed our stay at Washout Cottage. The art, books, and comfortable furnishings were great, and we loved the location. It was wonderful to have marsh views and ocean views. We can't wait to come back again sometime!

This charming, restored cottage is small in size but large in amenities! It was sparkling clean and very comfortable for 2 adults who seek laid back vacations. Just 100 steps (I counted) to the ocean or just steps out of the kitchen to a gorgeous view of the marsh complete with stunning sunsets. We'll be back! (rent a golf cart, easy to get around Folly without the parking hassle).

This small beach cottage has everything you could ever need/want in a beach house. Ocean and marsh views! The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated. It had everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you would need for cooking. Will rent again!

PERFECT 25TH wedding anniversary trip! Amazing location, marsh views on one side, ocean on the other, right in the middle of the surf action, so much fun! Beautifully decorated, fully stocked, felt like a home as soon as we walked in! We hope to rent this cottage for years to come!

From the large screened in porch with plenty of comfy patio furniture including a relaxing day bed, to the rooftop deck.. watching the surfers in the morning was completely peaceful, to being essentially beachfront AND marsh front, to the tasteful and modern decor.. this place was so cute and perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

We absolutely LOVED this house. It was the perfect size for the 4 of us. We have two boys (10 and 13). They had their own room and we had so many spaces to hang out as a family. The house is laid out so nice. The screen porch had all the pillows and cushions you could ask for. The kitchen was so well equipped. It was so easy to walk over to the beach from the house, the access point was just one house over. The beach was not packed at all where the house is. We had plenty of space. There are some rocks on one area that you don’t see during high tide so just be careful. The sunsets from the back of the house were picture perfect!! Loved it - hated to leave.

Had an amazing time in this perfectly located and elegantly decorated little house. Lots of charm and great attention to details. We appreciated how clean it was and all the great spaces to enjoy, from the cozy interior, back screened in porch with Marsh views to the roof top with lounge chairs perfect for watching the ocean and stars at night.

Everything was absolutely perfect! Only thing I would suggest is a way to lock the front door from the inside. If you have a toddler they can quickly escape.

This house was perfect for our family of four. Location to the beach was awesome; views were even better. House was stocked with amenities and was super clean. The only issue was that the dishwasher did not work. We put in a call to maintenance early in the week, but didn’t receive any follow-up. Overall, would recommend and will definitely stay again.

This is the cutest, coziest little house. So charming and has all the necessities taken care of. I lived on the screened in porch with beautiful views of the marsh. Access to the beach is right across the street and the beach was perfect and not too crowded. There are lots of surfers in this area which made me slightly nervous with kiddos playing in the ocean with fear that someone would run them over with their surfboard. We would definitely stay here again!

This house is so adorable, was very clean, and in a great location! This is the perfect house for a small family. It has been very tastefully renovated and the beach in front and marsh in back is just so unique. They’ve thought of everything and had every amenity you could think of and even more.
We will definitely be repeat renters of this adorable home!

The Washout has a rooftop deck with a beautiful view of the ocean. There is also a cozy, screened back porch with an amazing view of the marsh. The cottage was clean and comfortable. I would enjoy staying here again.

I like the Folly Beach washout. There are a lot a medium size waves and a lot activity for this time of year.
Patty Donnelly D. Mar 2020
This beautifully decorated and equipped home was even nicer than we had anticipated. the kitchen was completely stocked with every cooking need, there were tv's in both bedrooms as well as the living room with full channel cable (we were in heaven!), and the location could not have been more ideal.
The house was immaculate too, we will definitely return to this gem on Folly Beach!

The house was so cute, the area was fun and the staff were kind and helpful.
