Thank you Angie! We're delighted you had a great stay at Shangri-La! Steven
Thanks Michelle! We love that you love Shangri-La so much! We might have to get you your own door code soon!! Lol. Steven
Thanks Brian! We're pleased you and your family had a great visit to Shangri-La! Steven
Hi Jeana, We're sorry you didn't have a good experience as we do want all of our guests to have a great time, part of this comes from reading and understanding the listing so you know what you're getting, part of this comes from maintaining good communication when things aren't as you expected. We did reach out to you during your stay and we heard nothing back from you. We do try to make it clear that we're always available to answer any questions, resolve any issues, or help anyway we can. For example in this case there was additional toilet paper under the sink, the TV remotes work fine but we understand some people get confused which is which, and we absolutely don't restrict your use of the A/C at all (we only ask you leave it set when you check out). Neither do we don't ask you to strip the beds or sweep the floors. The actual check out instructions are posted in the unit. As regards the linens, these weren't stained prior to your visit. We know this as we're one of the few managers who use professional cleaners, inspect the property after every visit and photograph everything regularly. The beds were found in a very poor state when you left and we replaced much of the linens. Fortunately for you the fees you complain about include a loss damage waiver, which covers you for this damage.
Thank you! We appreciate the nice word and we're delighted you found everything to your satisfaction! Steven
Thank you! We're excited you loved the decor, the owner just recently redid it all and we think it looks great too. See you next time! Steven

Jack and Dianna! We would be delighted to have you back again! Sounds like you had a terrific time! - iTrip Charleston East Team
Thank you so much Leigh! We must clearly adjust the position on the Smoke Alarm, and/or clean the oven more often. These suggestions are so helpful and we take all comments very seriously. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the charm and relaxed atmosphere of Folly Beach and this area in particular. This is not in a residential neighborhood, but rather in the heart of Center Street! - iTrip Charleston Team

As mentioned in the Checkin Procedures, hot water comes from a tankless system. You will never run out of hot water. Temperature is regulated by turning on the hot tap, then adding cold water to achieve the desired temperature. Turning down the hot tap will shut off the heater and leave you with just cold water.
Thank you for your review. We are happy you were comfortable with your accommodations. We will be sure to notify the Building Management of your concerns regarding the dumpster placement. - iTrip Charleston Team
Thanks for your review. The water at the base of the stars is caused by the next-door restaurant, we will have our HOA take this up with them. The HOA may have removed the hose when they recently rebuilt the stairway, I will find out. As for the paper products, there were two fresh rolls of TP on the back of the toilet, and a fresh roll of paper towels on the kitchen counter. Our cleaner hates to be wasteful, but she will switch them out in the future.
Best Wishes on your Up-Coming Nuptials! If you need accommodations, we are certainly here for you! We LOVE Folly Beach and all it's especially yummy restaurants..this unit is especially close to all! Thank you for your review.
Terrific! We are so glad you were comfortable and enjoyed the convenience and fun of Folly Beach! This condo is perfect for a weekend get-away, nice couples retreat, even for anyone working in town short-term needing a place to stay! Thank you for your review!
Thank you for this wonderful review! We are glad you had so much fun, and look forward for your return to Folly and this ideal Center Street Condo in the heart of town!
Thank you for your review. Yes, this unit is in the middle of Folly Beach, right in the heart of Center Street. We appreciate the suggestion for a towel rack, and will make sure we add that to accommodate our guests' towels...great idea! We hope you can come back soon!
We are so glad you had fun in Folly! We love this little gem in the middle of everything in Folly. Thank you so much for your suggestion to upgrade the sofa-sleeper...it has been done! We typically don't supply beach supplies, but rather leave them for future guests to enjoy. Luckily, there are several cute beach gear shops along Center Street! We would delighted to have you visit us again! Thank you-The iTrip.net/Charleston Team
The hot water heater is tankless. When a faucet calls for hot water, the heater turns on. To regulate the heat, first turn on the hot water, then add cold water to achieve the desired temperature. We will be sure these instructions are included.
Thank you for your feedback, the owners will take the comments on the mattresses into consideration for replacement. This guest inquired for just 2 adults, had I known adults would sleep on the pull out bed in the living room I would have cautioned him.
I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. You really are in the middle of everything that Folly has to offer and without having to drive. I will work with the cleaners to correct the toiletries issues so that your next stay is perfect. Come back at anytime.
