Palmetto-lined home with porches, yard & hammock - walk to beach/town

Find peace and quiet among the palmettos at this lovely home in Folly Beach, where you'll have a large fenced yard complete with an outdoor hammock. This lushly landscaped property includes two spacious porches (the upper porch is screened), a gas grill for cookouts on beautiful summer days, and easy beach access on a public path that leads directly to the sand about 400 yards away.

Folly Beach is a mecca for fishing, surfing, biking, kayaking, and boating, and you'll have easy access to it all with the beach a short stroll away. Center Street and its many shops, restaurants, bars, and recreational outfitters is less than half a mile east as well. If you're interested in exploring the region's rich history and renowned cuisine, you'll be only 12 miles south of downtown Charleston.

Loved the cleanliness of the house. Amenities were ample. Backyard was good for family gatherings including fire pit and wood. Kitchen was great for family dinners.
David B. Dec 2022
Home was well maintained and clean. Bedding and towels were in new condition, not dingy or threadbare. Plenty of plates, glasses, mugs and tableware. Location was a five minute walk to the beach or Center St. nice quiet location. Beautiful house. Would rent again.

We loved the sun room off the kitchen. This became the family “gathering” place. Loved the spacious bedrooms and dining table that fit the whole family. Loved the quick responsiveness when we had to reach out to vacasa. Loved the non commercialized folly beach. We hope to return! Bryan and Dee

Other than havng to replace some light bulbs and getting up at midnight to find a battery for squealing smoke detector it was wonderful. The beach cart needs attention as one wheel is bad.
Just a few maintenance items would have made it wonderful all the way around.
Manager response:
Hi, Judith! The property manager is addressing the light bulbs and beach cart. Thank you for choosing to stay with us!

Home is very well kept and spotless - appreciated! Kitchen is well stocked with needed kitchen supplies. All bathrooms are nicely updated. Thankful there were beach chairs and a wagon to transport them on-site.
Erica O. May 2022
This home was wonderful. My family stayed here for 2.5 weeks with our 4 yo & 2 yo. Walking distance to beach, and a quiet part of Folly. We enjoyed our stay!

Very spacious, lots of amenities. Kitchen was great.

Beautiful backyard...where we mostly stayed when we were home...walking distance to all restaurants and beaches! Second time staying there...looking forward to a third!! Very Clean!!

The house was beautiful. On a quiet street. A short drive to the beach, but too far of a walk with a 3 year old. The parking is only 10 dollars for the day. The setup inside and out was perfect. Kid-friendly house, the area with the daybed on the main floor was perfect for her to hang out and watch t.v, play and color. The main living room right across the way was perfect for the adults to chill and not watch cartoons. Lol. The back covered porch was too hot and humid to hang out in intially, but plenty of windows fixed that but! The upstairs screened in porch was the perfect place, even mid-afternoon. The house was stocked with clean linens, plenty of towels for showering, cooking supplies, cups, plates, utensils. 2 hairdryers, those hotel like shampoos and conditioners and soap.. There is also a ton of different games, a hammock,a beautiful fire pit in the backyard. Even a corn hole set.
Overall it was a great vacation spot, fairly easily accessible for all generations, plenty of room to hang out or have a quiet moment to yourself, not far from the beach or from the main strip, and generally just a great place to take the family!

Stay here! So nice! The whole family loved it!
Camille C. Jun 2021
Wonderful layout! Loved the three different porch areas: one open, one screened-in, one glassed-in. Back yard had trees on three sides, so perfect amount/combo of sun and shade. Ceiling fans everywhere they should be AND the A/C worked beautifully. The house was well-stacked with cleaning supplies and laundry/dishwasher detergent. Walking distance to the beach and to downtown. Only two things prevented me from giving a 5-star rating: when we were there, the dryer took a long time to dry because the area beneath the lint trap had lots of sand and dust in it, and the front left wheel mechanism in the dishwasher was broken, making the bottom rack unstable. I reported both, the Vacasa team texted me immediately, and I suspect things will be fixed when my family returns next year. We can't wait to go back!

House was great. Very clean, plenty of space and amenities. Short walk to beach and downtown folly. Would come back again for sure.
Stacy K. May 2021
Super clean and convenient to all Folly has to offer. The beds were comfortable and everything you could need in the kitchen (appliances and utensils) was provided. The screened in porches were great also bc there were some mosquitoes floating around. Only negatives are the dryer needs to be replaced as it took hours to dry clothing and not much beach gear or beach towels provided. Not really a negative but we would have brought ours since we drove. Otherwise, we would def come back. Also Vacasa was terrific at responding and made it easy to communicate w them via text.

House was great. Very clean and lots of space. Great location.
Emily P. Apr 2021
We loved our stay at anchors away so much we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. So much space for my family of 4 (incl a 1 and 3 yo), loved the screened in porches, backyard and quiet street. It was a little far for us to walk to the beach, but parking was super easy (weekdays) so not an issue at all.
Cristen H. Mar 2021
Beautiful home, very spacious, well stocked, very clean. Enjoyed our trip so much, and will definitely be renting this house again on our next trip!
Susan N. Dec 2020
Awesome home...second year having our family Thanksgiving dinner at this home.... very comfortable, homey & great location. Easy walk to restaurants, beach etc. There is a fire pit out back... lots of porches, sitting areas, fireplace in the living area... great kitchen, (although there used to be a double oven, new stove doesn’t, missed it for the holiday cooking & baking) we really look forward to coming back sometime again, it feels like home! Loved it 😎

Quiet location, quick walk to the beach. Spacious home, great outdoor shower in the back helped wash sand off after a trip to the beach. Close to all the restaurants on the main drag. We would definitely return!
Paige K. Aug 2020
Very clean and well maintained, comfortable house.
Emmanuel D. Jul 2020
Anchors Away is a great property. Loved the screened in back deck, it felt like we were in a treehouse with the vegetation around. Lots of space for our group of 8 to be separate, and yet when we were all together we did not feel like we were on top of each other. Well equipped kitchen. Loved the games that were available. The walk to the beach was just the right distance. We would definitely stay here again.
Crystal R. Jul 2020
We enjoyed the condo as it is a very nice place to stay and is convenient to the beach. The only power had was getting the condo to stay cool, and we had to take an early flight but nobody would allow us to go in the condo before 4pm although it had already been cleaned and was just sitting their empty. I called Vacasa and told them we had a small child with us and they still refused to let us go in. We ended up sitting on the front porch in 90+ degree weather for 3 hours.
glenn b. Jul 2020
The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are a great size. It's on a dead end street so our kids could ride their bikes on the street with very little worry about cars. The daybed downstairs is not in a room, so don't count on it as an extra private sleeping area. Its comfy, though.
Terri M. Jun 2020
Such a beautiful place! It was clean & spacious! We had such a great time & shared so many laughs! We look forward to hopefully renting it again soon!
Cindy E. Jun 2020
Wonderful beach home. All the essentials included. Thank you for sharing!
Thomas L. Mar 2020
Really nice, spacious home that's convenient to downtown Folly. It was a little chilly when we were there in Feb., so we didn't get to use the backyard or the back porch; but we did enjoy the gas fireplace which came in handy early mornings and cold nights. We'd rent again in a minute.

Lovely house. There were a few issues and most were taken care of after I called Avocet. There are remaining repairs that should be completed.
Manager response:
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at this home, but are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced 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.
