Adorable cottage beach home. Loved the pool and hot tub!! Perfect location from the beach.
Kris S. Jul 2022
A small bungalow with a great backyard and pool and very central to everything. This is a great spot.
Diana C. Jul 2022
Great getaway cottage. Location and proximity to the beach was perfect. Whimsical beach decor and backyard with pool and spa were ideal. Great fenced in yard and porch. Very relaxing time spent post beach in backyard haven.

I would recommend a bit of investment in property maintenance. We did experience a few issues during our stay. The Vacasa team was quick to address. Understandably it was peak season, but a few of the issues were indeed noted weeks prior in reviews and should have been rectified before our visit.
Manager response:
Hi Diana! It is such a pleasure to learn you had a great getaway and enjoyed the location of the home. However, we would like to apologize for the maintenance issues you experienced. It is never our intention for our guests to be inconvenienced during their vacation and appreciate you taking the time to report your concerns. We will continue working with our maintenance team to make improvements and hope you will allow us to host you again in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Urchin. It was the perfect little beach house. Our favorite was the private pool and hot tub. We look forward to staying here again next year!
Whitney S. May 2022
My husband and I enjoyed the beach house. The pool was great. The location was amazing. We will be rebooking for 2023.
Andrea G. Apr 2022
First off, super cute home that had everything we were looking for. The hot tub was the best part of our evenings and the pool was a nice balance after hot pickleball matches. Did I memtion the location was perfect, 480 feet from beach and two blocks from pickleball courts. Would totally book again!!!!
Colleen H. Feb 2022
The house is well kept and nicely decorated. It is small but perfect for my husband and I and our two dogs. Location to the beach and Charleston was great. The back yard was the best part of the property. I would definitely do Folly in February at the Sea Urchin again.
Michelle P. Feb 2022
Great relaxing yard and pool/spa. Awesome bath and kitchen. Loved the porch all fenced in property so close to the ocean you can hear it.
Cathy M. Nov 2021
The hot tub was great in the cool evenings!
Emily R. Oct 2021
We had a great time staying at the Sea Urchin! It was perfect for our little family and we loved that we could bring our dog too. Perfect location, very close to the beach. The backyard with the pool is unbeatable. It was perfect, and we would love to come back!
Tanya H. Oct 2021
Very easy checkin process. The right size for me, my husband and 3 year old. Shower had great water pressure. In unit washer dryer was nice for beach towels and swimsuits. Used the oven to make cookies which was a nice post beach/swim treat. Short walking distance to the beach, easy enough for my toddler to do on her own without being carried. We loved the hot tub and the pool, while a little brisk some days (visiting from Maryland in October) we still swam in it. Landscaping was very pretty and relaxing. We would definitely return again.
David H. Oct 2021
This house is fantastic! Our second tome staying there and can’t wait to come back! What a gem!!
julie d. Sep 2021
Thank you for having us, we had a wonderful time with our dogs. So close to the beach, such a gorgeous back yard. We can't wait to schedule another stay.
Autumn C. Sep 2021
My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of September. We have never visited Folly Beach and we were blown away at how nice the area was as well as this rental. I can’t recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back!
Amy H. Sep 2021
Always a great visit at Sea Urchin. Easy access to beach. Pool and hot tub a loved bonus! Rental company very attentive and readily available. Only recommendation I have is to update the instructions for the TV. Looking forward to our next visit.

The outdoor pool area makes this place a 5 star!
Marina B. Jul 2021
We just left this wonderful house and are feeling so lucky we got to stay here. What a dream! Perfect setup for a small family of 3, beautiful backyard and pool that we enjoyed to its fullest, and the front porch served as our hangout spot at all hours we spent at home. Porch swing was fantastic. Hardly any bugs, which for June is amazing. The house had everything we could have needed and was one block from the beach. Already looking to book again!
Janet D. Jun 2021
We loved our stay at the Sea Urchin! Everything was perfect. The location, the decor, even the beds were the best we’ve laid on at any rentals we’ve had before and the customer service was impeccable. The pool was just a perfect place to hang especially when the beach was a little bit to windy for us to be on. We can’t wait to have another stay at the Sea Urchin!
Sherry B. May 2021
5 stars for the interior of the home
5 stars for the proximity of the beach
4.5 stars for the outdoor shower-would be nice to have something to set your shampoo and body wash on
3 stars for the broken umbrella at the picnic table-we pushed through and had our dinners outside but for the price, I am sure the owners could have replaced the umbrella-we need a little shade.
1 star for the parking ticket that I got 🤦‍♀️. I figured since we were parked in the “private drive” we did not have to park with the flow of traffic-wrong! 🤓 💰
5 stars to Folly Beach Umbrella and Chair Rentals! The delivered our chairs exactly where we entered the beach at.
10 stars for great weather! Sunny and hot every day. Thank goodness for sunscreen and swim shirts!
10 stars for the swimming pool!
1000 stars for 1 TV in the house-so my kids had to enjoy family time
10 stars for the great internet connection-so the kids could use their phones in the evening.
3 stars for the grill-BRING A LIGHTER WITH YOU! The igniter on the grill is broken 😞

We will definitely book the Sea Urchin again-we have fallen in love with this place!

Frances R. May 2021
This rental is hands down one of the best places we have vacationed on the East Coast. The decorations make you feel like you are in a rental from HGTV. Very nicely updated! The home is perfect to bring your pet. Great location near all the restaurants and very close to the beach. Although, the backyard is so amazing you won't leave for the beach often. It felt like a private Oasis, and the plants/landscaping reminded us of our trip to Maui. We will for sure be adding this to our yearly trips!
Julie P. May 2021
We really enjoyed this house. The amenities were great and we are looking forward to staying at the Sea Urchin again.
Jill P. Apr 2021
Sea Urchin was perfect for my family of three and our dog! The outdoor space was AMAZING. Lots of room for us to hang out and enjoy the great weather..front porch, pool,hot tub, hammock, outside shower with hand held nozzle with hot water so we could rinse off comfotably. Space inside was perfect for our small family. Beach access was one block away. My favorite Folly house out of many trips!
Brandon R. Feb 2021
Great house with an amazing backyard and pool situation. Two minutes from the beach walking and about a 20 minute drive to Charleston. We had a great time.
Mary Jane M. Feb 2021
Our stay at Sea Urchin exceeded our expectations! We stayed here for two nights with our 12-14 year old daughters and were completely charmed. The cottage is the perfect mix of Southern style: friendly, cozy and beachy with a modern touch. The backyard is a standout- with 50 degree weather we made ample use of the hot tub. The exterior lighting brings the entire place alive at night. All the rooms were beautifully decorated and the master bed was incredibly comfortable. The small footprint was treated with thoughtful design: we enjoyed using the kitchen and eating area for dinners and hung out in the living room area at night. Check in was seamless and the property management team was extremely responsive and helpful in getting us settled. The location is great- steps from the beach access and close to town. We are picky travelers and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. In fact, our only disappointment was that we couldn’t extend our stay. Will absolutely come again!
Michelle P. Nov 2020
We loved the fenced in private yard with pool and jacuzzi. The clean fresh rooms and decor were nicely thought out with everything you would need, including a washer and dryer. The porch was big and comfy with rockers, chairs, and swing for two. The street is so pretty to walk and the home is minutes to the beach and restaurants. We had a great experience and would definitely recommend!
Elizabeth M. Nov 2020
The home is meticulously decorated with great style and current updates. Colorful and cheerful. Towels sheets and pillows are quality as are dishware. And then there is the awesome back yard !! Hot tub and pool with no maintenance yard was sublime ! Loved it all and cannot beat the location either !! Management was quick to respond and we even got a text for early check in option. Bonus !! Def rent again
Sonja S. Sep 2020
The backyard space made our beach trip perfect, even with heavy rain ( no lightning) many of the days we were there. The pool and hot tub were even better than they look in the photos. The 1 block walk to to the beach made the commute easy, which helps when you have a toddler! The gas grill and outdoor space was wonderful. The owners left a binder with recommendations on their favorite local restaurants with menus to all restaurants in town. It was clearly evident the owners take pride in this property and keep it up nicely. We will definitely stay here again.
Cathy M. Sep 2020
The backyard/pool/hot tub are perfect after a day at the beach!! The house is perfect for 4 people. The front porch swing is great for morning coffee, reading a book or taking a nap! Short walk to a public beach access.
Bridget L. Sep 2020
This place was perfect for a dog friendly family.. Big enough to spread out and enjoy lots of outside space and a block walk to the beach. Hope to return again soon!
Carly F. Sep 2020
We loved everything about this home. It was clean and the backyard was beautiful!
Julie W. Jul 2020
Love the decor, location, and wonderful backyard and pool. So great to have a very dog friendly vacation spot, will definitely rent again.
Trent G. Jul 2020
I don’t even know where to begin when describing how wonderful our stay was - but hands down, it was one of our family’s favorite trips yet, we ADORE The Sea Urchin!!! Whether it was the gentle breeze on a hot afternoon on the gorgeous front porch (that tile!!!), or mornings watching the sun crest the house next door as our boys played in the yard... there was just something special here at The Sea Urchin that I don’t feel like we have ever had before in a rental home. The house is smaller, but if you’re into the beach bungalow feel and care more about your outdoor lounge space/proximity to beach - then this house will be perfect for you. As a family of four - two young kids and our dog in tow, we appreciated that the yard (front and back) was fully enclosed. Our kids could run out the front door and come through the back door and we didn’t have to worry about them - I loved that! The obvious selling point of this home is the pool - oh my word, I still can’t get over how stunning it is - whether it was during the day when temps forced us to spend a lot of time in it, or sitting out by it at night when it was lit up blue (landscape lighting on the palms was also a gorgeous touch) - it was just stunning always. We so appreciated this pool, and this yard!!! Bonus points for this house being one block from the beach - which really, a “block”’is like 4 houses - it’s the easiest walk!!! The 6th street beach is also where Shaka Surf School is set up during the day - so it was fun to see kids out surfing, may be something to consider sending your kiddos to during your stay! We rented a golf cart during our stay through Folly Beach Golf Carts and loved that we could go up and down the island/park anywhere (COVID parking went into effect while we were there - but golf carts have residential permits, so we could literally park anywhere at any time with it). Loved eating carry out at Woody’s, Wiki Wiki, Rita’s and Lost Dog Cafe! You will adore this house (and Folly Beach) if you’re into laid back relaxation! Enjoy!!! And ps- thank you Sea Urchin for being dog friendly!!! We made the best memories with our pup by our side!!!
Homer B. Jul 2020
House is small but plenty of space for 4 and well laid out. Great pool and giant backyard, and a 2-minute walk to the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a week.
LAURIE D. Jul 2020
The house is perfect for a family of four and offers a hard to find fenced in outdoor space. The space looks well decorated, newly renovated and offers a fun private pool and hot tub! We’ll definitely rent this place again!
Lauren N. Jun 2020
We had the best time staying at the Sea Urchin! The house was spotless and cozy. The swimming pool was such a fantastic bonus. Great location -- about 3 minute walk to the beach and 15-20 minute walk to restaurants, etc. We can't wait to return!
Karla A. Jun 2020
What a cute house. Our family loved staying in Folly at Sea Urchin! Everything you could ask for in a rental. Great pool and yard and just the perfect location. Wonderful front porch too. I’d recommend bringing natural yard guard to all folly properties to enjoy outdoor BBQs!! Would totally recommend this house for the pool and location.
