Spread out in the amply-sized living area or out on the deck to enjoy that stack of mystery novels then use the full kitchen to get creative with tonight's meal (hint: the toaster oven will make short work of bruschetta toast for a quick lunch). Enjoy an evening walk down by the water under a canopy of stars.

Close to beach and restaurants. Easy drive to Charleston! Comfortable house.
Charles M. Apr 2022
The breeze kept the mosquitoes away on the deck.

Very clean! Easy walk to beach and downtown. Would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay! Clean and comfortable. Could use a couple more blankets for warmth during this time of year and
the hairdryer plug gets hot when in use. Otherwise, would stay here again and thank you for sharing your home away from home.

Our family of 6 (kids 15, 13, 9, 2.5) stayed at this beach house for 3 nights over spring break. The location for walking to beach access and shops was quite perfect. Though the town seemed busy, the beach was not crowded and we enjoyed our trip. Overall, we would stay here again, but only during cool weather and a short stay.

Pros: *great location, second row of houses from the ocean
*smelled like it had just been cleaned when we walked in, cleaning staff does a good job
*towels and linens appeared very clean and good condition
*abundance of plates/bowls/silverware.

Cons: *The house was stuffy, even upon arrival. It was bearable during our stay because it was cool weather, but I imagine during the warmer months it would be terrible, especially in the upper bedroom/bathroom.
*No frills- bring your own beach towels, chairs, toys, trash bags. No extra linens.
*No pantry or empty kitchen cabinet for food storage makes kitchen space VERY tight.
*I wish the keypad access were on the front door, because the stairs to the backdoor are quite narrow and steep and the backdoor area smelled very strongly of cat spray because of a stray cat.
Manager response:
Hi, Julie! We are so happy we got to host your family's vacation! After receiving your feedback, we have added a mini-split to the upper level of the home to alleviate the stuffiness and allow for ample cool air flow. Unfortunately, the keypad is not able to be secured to the front door. We apologize for the stray cat and will work hard to keep the steps free of any unfortunate smells. Hope to host you again!

The Compass Rose II was so close the the beach and had all the conveniences we needed. Perfect for a girls' weekend getaway!
Amanda C. Jul 2021
We enjoyed our stay in Compass Rose II. As a small, four person family, it was the perfect place for us to vacation safely. Each of our kids loved having their own room and a shared bathroom on the main floor, and my husband and I loved having the top floor with the second bathroom all to ourselves. We really loved having two public beach accesses so close, and the walk into town was quick when we needed something. The house just needed a pantry or cupboard for all the groceries and snacks we bought in order to be perfect for our stay.
Manager response:
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!

Great house! Close to beach and shopping.
Brad C. May 2021
We loved the location but it did stay warm at night in the master bedroom. We also had read (on previous reviews) that there were chairs there to take to the beach....they were nowhere to be found....the decks were nice and as stated before, it’s in a great location!
Karen S. May 2021
Location is fabulous! Needs a new dishwasher - it did not work.

Awesome location. Close to everything. House had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the great deck. I would include that there is a charcoal grill and beach chairs to use. We brought chairs with us and didn’t need to which was great when we all went to the beach. Great stay!
Susan J. Apr 2021
Wonderful location!
Great front porch w chairs.
House was spotless.
TVs in every room
Plenty to get you started dish soap, garbage bags, etc
Beautiful house!
Totally enjoyed our visit and would rent this house again!

The home was just as pictured. Very nice and clean. The weather was fabulous and we had a wonderful time at Folly Beach. Can't wait to go back!
Jennifer C. Jul 2020
The place was nice and had good access to the beach, but being in SC in July should mean you have sufficient access to an air conditioner
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. The AC was inspected by a maintenance technician and they have informed us it is in good working condition. We apologize for any confusion regarding this.
Jennifer A. Jul 2020
Great location, short walk to downtown, Bert's market & beach! Loved the deck, plenty of chairs to relax and eat meals. The kitchen was well stocked, the ice maker did not work?? (Definitely need to check into that!) Also, the A/C unit is horrible!! The house at one point was up to 76 degrees! TOO HOT for me!!
We never set it below 72 degrees because we didn't want to 'freeze' the unit, but geez, it was ridiculous!! The upstairs bedroom was way too warm & sticky! The ceiling fan did help a little. I know it said in a previous review that it was checked, but the A/C was not really cooling the house down as it should. Overall, we enjoyed the house, the closeness to the beach & downtown, stores & restaurants. I would stay there again...there was even a an ocean view :)
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. We are glad you enjoyed this location and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

Everything about this place was excellent, with one exception. First, the good—the location was fantastic! It was a 2 minute walk to the grocery store, the beach, and the fun little restaurant/shop district. Unit was clean, beds were comfortable, and kitchen was well stocked. The only bad was the questionable A/C. It worked, but not well, especially at night when you need to cool down to sleep. Half our party got bad sleep because we were just too warm (especially the upstairs bedroom). Though there were ceiling fans, strangely there was no setting to use them with lights off/fans on—we literally had to take all the light bulbs out to be able to use the fans at night. It would’ve made a HUGE difference to have had oscillating or box fans in each bedroom, and I’d encourage the owners to provide this (and maybe get the A/C checked?)

But the location! Seriously, can’t say enough good about that aspect of it.
Manager response:
Hi, Shannon! The air conditioning was inspected and found working correctly. With the high humidity on the top floor, it is usually a little warmer if window treatments have been left open during the day. Thank you!

The location of this home was perfect for an easy walk to the center of Folly for shopping and dining and right across the street from the beach. The porches were perfect for just sitting and enjoying a lazy day. Very spacious and comfortable home. I would recommend better amenities like toilet paper, shower gels etc. the living room chairs were a little dated and the white cushions weren’t so white anymore. Would recommend changing those out. I would recommend this home and would stays there again.
