Amazing location and perfect, beachy home for hanging out!
Our family of 4 (2 adults, toddler, infant) stayed here with a family of 3 (2 adults and toddler) and were very comfortable with the amount of space. The house is very well furnished with a beachy theme; the beds were comfortable, and we especially loved the sunroom (pictured). It was a great home base for our Folly Beach/Charleston adventures. The location was fantastic- we could be at the beach or on the main street within just a few minutes. Unless we were going into Charleston, we never had to take the car out- everything was walkable! There are nice touches like towels and a wagon provided, as well as a really nice selection of books and dvds for quieter days. We found the hosts to be responsive and accommodating. We loved our stay here so much that we extended it a bit! We would definitely return and highly recommend.

About the neighbourhood
Book your Charleston vacation rental and experience coastal beauty infused with Southern charm! When you plan a Charleston vacation, you pick your experience. Our guests can stay in downtown along the Ashley River or nearby in island destinations such as Folly Beach and the Isle of Palms. Enjoy both history and modernity in one of our Charleston vacation rentals. From the area’s pristine beaches to PGA Tour golf courses, fine dining, and rich historical landmarks, families and singles alike can't get enough of Charleston. So much so, the city has consistently ranked as the No. 1 world-renown vacation spot by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler. Start your vacation outdoors and explore both the Atlantic Ocean and Cooper River. Families can relax on one of the area beaches or get in the water for boating, fishing, kayaking, parasailing, swimming and surfing. Charleston also houses nature preserves, gardens, parks and the South Carolina Aquarium, a family favorite. When not enjoying the scenery, head to the dozens of attractions and festivals in Charleston that celebrate history and arts and culture. History buffs will find opportunities to learn more about both the Civil War and the Revolutionary War with access to historical sites, including churches, stunning plantation homes and the Fort Sumter National Monument. No trip will feel complete without taking one of the many guided ghost and walking tours to see more than 50 museums – including America's first theater, the Dock Street Theatre in the French Quarter – and art galleries that showcase the area's rich national heritage and local culture. Our guests also have a blast shopping at the King Street Fashion District, which includes dozens of retailers selling everything from antiques and apparel to locally made treats. The city's food scene also ranks as one of the best in the U.S., and has more than 150 restaurants showcasing chef-inspired dishes as well as traditional favorites. If you prefer to stay outside but in proximity to the city, iTrip Vacations also has vacation rentals located in Folly Beach and Isle of Palms, two barrier islands off the South Carolina coast. These destinations feature miles of beaches, family-friendly activities, award-winning restaurants and more. Stay in a Folly Beach vacation rental, and have a blast on or off the water. Folly Island sits between the Folly River and Atlantic Ocean, providing the best of both freshwater and saltwater activities. Families enjoy relaxing on the beaches, biking, boating, fishing, dolphin-watching, kayaking and sailing. The island houses two parks that offer public beach access and events: Folly River Park and Folly Beach County Park, both located in proximity to restaurants, shopping and play areas. Another must-see attraction is the Folly Beach Fishing Pier, where visitors can fish, watch wildlife and spend time together. Although locals refer to this spot as the Edge of America, Folly Island is only a 15-minute drive to Charleston. Isle of Palms – located only 12 miles to Charleston – offers a friendly beach community complete with modern amenities to create a place to have fun and relax. The area has a thriving district packed full of shops and restaurants surrounded by miles of beaches and residences. Popular Isle of Palms activities include fishing charter adventures, sightseeing, watersports and golf at the Wild Dunes Island resort.
