Perfect house for a group of people! Enough space to have space from people. Great room accommodations. Great beach access! I will definitely be renting here again :)
Janice B. Oct 2022
Decor was beautiful, space was nice, close to beach entrance.

We were two families with teens that stayed over the long weekend. The house was standard clean (well lived in) but the only thing was we were missing some top sheets and pillow cases as far as the linens go and ,unfortunately, the mattress topper in the main bedroom had a blood stain on it, with no sheet. We just pulled it off, let the staff know and they did respond right away and apologize. They brought extra linens the next morning. The AC filter was super dirty, we requested they come and change it, since the AC was having a hard time keeping up. After that, no issues with AC. The location was perfect for the beach and watching the sunset over the marsh. The outdoor shower was great and we used it a lot. The upper deck was the best - spent most of the time there. Having a washer/dryer was great (small closet with sliding doors is a little tight to swap clothes but small beans since it's nice to have the laundry).
Overall would rent it again.
Manager response:

Amazing views and clean.

Belle Mar is simply beautiful. We loved our family meals on the back porch overlooking the marsh. Sharing our latest recipes in the kitchen. Working out and yoga on the top deck watching the stars. We all went out on the marsh during high tide with the canoe, the kyak and the paddle board. It was an expedition! Having our dog with us made our stay complete.

We really enjoyed our family vacation in this home. It was perfect for our family of 8. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. You could ask for a better location. This is our second time staying at this house and we are already looking at dates for next year!

Convenient and updated
Barbara T. May 2022
We really enjoyed our stay at Belle Mare. The location is perfect. Very short walk to the beach and the views over the marsh especially at sunset are stunning. The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The layout of the home with its indoor and outdoor seating areas gave us plenty of room. Any questions or issues were quickly answered by the managers. We would highly recommend the house and we can’t wait to go back!

This house was perfect for several families. Very clean and well taken care of. New appliances and a beautiful backyard.
Donna C. Sep 2021
This was the second time we rented this home. Fantastic views, well stocked kitchen and clean. Marsh views are the best views. We made so many memories with our family and will definitely rent again next fall.
Breanna P. Aug 2021
Our family loved every second at Belle Mare! This is our 8th year at Folly and our best stay yet! The location was perfect. The house was beautiful and clean. All of the things important to a family with kids were there… clean rooms with plenty of space to spread out, a perfect outdoor shower - a MUST for us, beautiful porch areas to hang out including the underneath of the house.

We text with the staff about a few things and they were very responsive and showed up promptly. As a busy mom, there is only one thing I really missed - Tupperware food containers for fridge storage. All of the glassware and dishware is beautiful, but really need some plastics for food storage and kid use.

Again, loved every second and we will be back!

The service was wonderful, All the amenities for kitchen and bathrooms was a pleasant surprise. The place was attractive, very clean, and comfortable. We recommend the house and Vacasa

My family recently stayed at Belle Mare for my sister’s wedding in Folly Beach. We had a wonderful time! The home was exactly what we needed - spacious, clean, stocked with kitchenware, etc. All directions were easy to follow and it had strong internet connection. The location is wonderful because you get views of the marsh and beach! There are multiple porches and lots of dining space. The best part was the neighboring homes, they treated us like friends and neighbors, not guests! They were kind and helpful! We would most certainly come back! Thank you!
James M. Apr 2021
Loved the lay out. Very clean and easy access. Loved the new dock and under home area as well as very close proximity to beach access. Only complaint is that the main steps and railing don't fell sturdy enough for a "larger" person.

William S. Dec 2020
Location was excellent as well as house layout. Being on one level and handicap ramp were nice.
All the dishes, glasses, and cutlery were Dusty and dirty. Tried to wash them in the dishwasher and they still came out with a dusty film on them. Was Shocked that in the middle of Covid they did not correct this as a former reviewer mentioned it also. After two days, our daughter suggested trying liquid instead of the powder that was provided. It helped but did not totally resolve the problem. They need a new dishwasher.
There was hair on the Wall and Floor of the master bathroom shower-disgusting! That was mentioned in a former review as well.
The bathroom was so cold we had to use a space heater that we happened to have in the car.
Sliding glass door was cracked open in master Bedroom.
All of these things are fixable SO WHY DIDN’T THEY AFTER A PREVIOUS REVIEW!!!???
Manager response:
Hi, William! Thank you for letting us know about your visit. The owner is currently staying in the home and will be replacing the dishwasher along with a few other things. The sliding door in the master bedroom was not broken but rather not closed all the way. The bathroom heat is working well, especially with the sliding door shut. We have addressed housekeeping and the oversights you encountered. Thanks again!
Donna C. Oct 2020
Beautiful home, with views from all decks. The dock was an additional space to enjoy and view sunsets. Close walk to beach and the kitchen is well equipped. Our family had a wonderful time and made lots of memories!
Mara T. Oct 2020
We loved our stay in this house. It has a wonderful location and underneath the house was the perfect set up for a low country boil. The kitchen was well equipped and rooms comfy. The deck and deck steps both front and back had a few questionable blanks but we learned quickly which to avoid.
Timothy H. Sep 2020
We had a great time at Belle Mare! A couple things we couldn’t recognize from the listing photos is that the home comes with a relatively new dock for the creek in the back yard. And that the outdoor shower under the house comes with 3 different settings.

It was a nice touch having all of the beach accessories in the storage space under neath and we got good use out of the gas boiler.

Everything else was as expected; which his good! Because we had high hopes for the property! 90 second walk to the public beach access. 5 stars across the board!
Daniel D. Sep 2020
We enjoyed are stay at Belle Mare. It was a well stocked home with plenty of beach gear, which was a plus. The layout worked well for a family of 5. It was clean and a short walk to the beach. The river view was outstanding and the crabbing dock is brand new. It's a charming older beach house.
Courtney C. Aug 2020
This house comfortably slept ten women. Views were great and an easy 2 minute walk to the beach. Ample parking and Beach chairs and wagon were a nice touch. The home itself was a little dirty. Dishes on the shelves had food caked to them and the trash can and fridge smelled like fish and lots of dust everywhere.
Overall great home, just not super clean!
Manager response:
Hello Courtney, We apologize for any issues you experienced during your stay. We encourage guests to reach out to us if there are any issues they encounter during your visit. Our 24-hour customer service line is here to assist at all times and would have sent housekeeping over to get those issues taken care of. Thank you for your review. We hope to host you again soon!
Catherine J. Jul 2020
Great house! Really comfortable and beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed and so close to the beach. ❤️
Julie G. Jul 2020
We loved the short walk to the beach and seeing the sunset over the expansive marsh
Stephen C. Jul 2020
The location was great (away from all the chaos), close walk to beach, the house was well equipped, cute decor, amazing views!
We will be back. Thanks!
David H. Jun 2020
Huge shout out to Vacasa and Amanda in Folly Beach SC for going above and beyond for us! The home was wonderful and accommodated our large party perfectly!
Frank C. Mar 2020
Lots of bedrooms, spread around the house so each adult had their own space. Very close to the beach, like a two minute walk. Beautifully modernized, but comfortable. All the amenities we needed, well maintained. We never were able to connect to WiFi, but that was the only negative in the entire stay, which was just fine with us.
