Tujwana B. Oct 2021
It was very nice having the beach to ourselves and not be crowded. The house itself needs some serious updates and bug control inside. There were ants on the walls and different bugs walking around on the floor. Also, was not fond of communication with vacasa text message system as we were in sc a week before our stay and no access to my emails. Did not have a access code til about 5:30 pm that I had to request and asked for early arrival and did not get a reply back . We did not need to be in the house but wanted beach access early. We did arrive about 2:00. The house was ready but the cleaners husband and wife were on the beach with their guests enjoying what we were paying for.We did interrupt them and they did pack up there beach belongings and left. I rated home one star only for the location I see its for sale. Hopefully new homeowners build a new house there.
Manager response:
We're sorry for the frustrations you had, Tujwana. Pest control has been done at this home, and we will follow up with our housekeepers regarding your experience. Thanks!

We had a great trip! The location was absolutely beautiful and the back deck area was perfect for setting up our telescope and looking at the stars at night. We really hope we can stay there again next year!
Felicia P. Aug 2021
The house was the perfect size, clean and comfy. The beach was not crowded at all. Would definitely stay here again.

Being close to the ocean and having less steps to climb

I have rented this house 3 times over the last few years. Its not the biggest but it has its own charm. Very affordable for a small family with pets. The beach in this area is not that busy at all and its a nice walk down the beach to see the lighthouse.

This house was sparkling clean! It had all the things we needed for a great vacation! Our dog loved the deck that overlooked the ocean as well as long walks on the beach (and so did we!!) This was our first trip to Folly and this home was far enough away from town that we felt like we had our own private spot...we didn’t mind the drive into town to enjoy some amazing food at the local restaurants! Would rent again! Thanks for a great trip!

The beach was lovely, but the maintenance in general was very disappointing ~~on the inside of the windows appears to be black mold, dishes and utensils from the cupboard/drawers were dirty, steps from the deck to the beach broken, nails sticking up that could've caused a puncture wound, no tub stopper, sliding glass door is difficult ....
Manager response:
Hi, Lynn! Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. The exposed nails have been corrected, and the kitchen and windows have been deep cleaned. We sincerely apologize for these issues and do hope to be able to impress you in the future.
Rebecca S. Feb 2021
The cottage is perfect for a quiet getaway. It's thoughtfully appointed with most of the essentials, and the beach access couldn't be more convenient. Could use a little TLC, including new mattresses and some creature comforts like extra extra pillows/blankets to get it to a 5-star stay, but overall lovely and nice.
Manager response:
Hi, Rebecca! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed this adorable seaside home and had a wonderful time! Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We look forward to hosting you again!

Pictures on site are accurate. Once there, the quaint homey feel, The simple decor, the activity items, and the private beach access were a welcomed surprise. My family enjoyed our stay.
Michele T. Nov 2020
Great location! We loved the deck by the beach! It was perfect for the dogs.
Dorothy T. Oct 2020
The home was in a perfect location. Although the home was dated it was furnished well to make us feel at home with plenty of seating for all. The kitchen had ample products for us. The space was clean and the parking was great. Only suggestion is to update the mattresses and bedding. But please look into fixing the bathroom sink drains.
Manager response:
Hi, Dorothy! We appreciate your feedback and will be looking into your concerns to get them addressed. Thank you!

Loved that the house sat back a bit from the beach it had a small yard and a nice cement patio we could sit outside with our little dog. The privacy fence was also very nice . We enjoyed the deck closer to the ocean very nice

Andrew U. Jun 2020
Really enjoyed our stay at this beach house. Right on the beach where it isn't super crowded. Nice little walk on the beach to see the lighthouse.
Comfortable inside. Great to sit on the roofdeck to sun or enjoy the stars.
Todd B. Jun 2020
Simple, clean, lovely small house on the ocean
Kimberly Y. Jun 2020
Great location just steps to the beach and two outdoor decks to enjoy. The house is comfortable. Nothing high end here. Plastic outdoor chairs. Inexpensive beach house. You get what you pay for but comfortable enough.
Sheryl D. Mar 2020
Wonderful stay; enjoyed the walks on the beach; listening to the ocean; having time to sit and read in the sun. But, deck needs some work (splinters from the deck).
RENEE C. Mar 2018
