This is a very charming house for 8 adults to enjoy! The living space can feel snug with more...especially the kitchen. It’s super close to the beach. They’ve done a good job updating a historic home and it has all the amenities you need: pool, grill, outdoor shower, good appliances, TVs, etc. I will say the trendy barn doors are not ideal for sound proofing or babies, though. Could be a bit cleaner (I know bugs are tough to manage in the area!)

The house is exactly as described, very clean and the location is prime!! The only thing this house needs is extra sheets and pillow cases. They have tons of extra blankets and pillows, but no sheets or pillowcases.

Great location, but the pool area was the best, with shade and landscaping oasis

We have stayed at The Totem House for two years in a row and just booked a third stay for next year. It's far prettier and has more character than most beach houses, plus we love how efficient the layout is. There is not a nook or cranny of wasted space! We love the pool and the yard, and with the addition of a golf cart rental, it's a perfect spot on Folly. The house is well-appointed with tons of kitchen and bar equipment, and the house has been immacutely clean both years we have rented.

It was a great rental property: updates to cottage were great, close to beach. Negatives: no usable patio furniture or beach chairs, kitchen tools were skimpy (e.g. no tongs), also lots of stains on living room rug.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
