Location, right on the beach, was great. You can walk on the beach into the town center and the pier, but go home to the quiet ocean. Fully functional kitchen and A/C for those warm nights. But most importantly, the deck was expansive. I loved the swing to watch the sunsets from. House was clean, hosts were available for questions, and I had a great time at Someplace Else.

The outside decks and the beach swing make this a perfect place for someone who loves the ocean. The home is older, so not recommended for the pretentious upscale type person. Wine and fully stocked kitchen were appreciated. Only improvement recommendation would be a better umbrella stand on ocean deck. We will be back.

My family & I take a summer vacation at Folly Beach annually for a week. This was our first time staying at 'Someplace Else'. We have found that every house has it's own uniqueness & we quickly find our favorite spot to spend the majority of our vacation. Here it was the awesome deck & swing that both overlook the sand dunes & beach. It was a H-O-T August week in S.C. but the breezes from the deck were just what we needed to stay cool...along with the porch shower! Later in the week we had some issues with the AC but after contacting Steven & Sarah w/ iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches they had a nice gentleman right on the problem. I do have one suggestion... a new fold out couch bed. The current one has most certainly been through many years of vacationing families. ~~ Thank You!

The house served all our needs for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children). It was a great location - we had the beach nearly to ourselves in the morning and during the afternoons it was not overcrowded and was very peaceful. There is no washer/dryer, so make sure you don’t count on that while there, but the appliances and other amenities (while not luxurious) were everything we needed. I would also recommend having access to a car to get down to the pier where the shops and restaurants are located. My kids loved “their” beach house!

We had had another enjoyable stay at Folly Beach. The house was completely different from what we are use to. It has a cool retro vibe to it. The queen bed was great. The deck and the view was the selling points for booking this place for me. Few suggests, another TV in the queen bedroom would be great, instead of the just one in the family room. Also update some of the utensils and cookware, as they are pretty used and past wear. Some minor updating to the decorating is also needed. Overall pretty satisfied with the property and being are first time booking thru itrips vacation rentals we were greatly satisfied with the easy booking process and plan to use your services for future vacations.

This was a great vintage beach house with awesome views of the ocean and you can hear the surf from your bed! The deck was amazing, even if the weather wasn't. This is a cozy house in a spectacular setting and we'd definitely like to return in the summer. I think that the only downside is that the owners might update some of the furnishings, especially in this price range. Mostly though we enjoyed our time and loved the beach setting very much.

I couldn’t be happier with my stay at Someplace Else in Folly Beach. The house was perfect for my husband and I. It was clean, had comfortable beds, good kitchen, and all was in good working order. The location was A+. We weren’t quite sure from the pictures if we were right on the beach. It was! There is great privacy with next door neighbors and it is 1.5 miles to town. You can walk to town if you wish yet at night all you hear is the sound of the ocean. I cannot say enough about the customer service we received from ITrip Vacations. We originally scheduled our trip during Hurricane Florence. The constant updates we received from Steve on the situation were informative and comforting. I was amazed that when the area was under evacuation orders Steve was still working and took my phone call and seamlessly rescheduled our vacation. Thank you Steve! The excellent customer service continued as I received timely emails about check in and when I arrived they immediately responded to my text that early check in was feasible. We truly enjoyed our visit from Martha who welcomed us with homemade cookies and wine and shared with us her fond memories of her friend Tom who owned the house. We appreciated her dining tips and bubbly personality.

It was just okay. It seem like the upkeep of the rental was lacking quite a bit. The shades in my room didn't work, the hot water when taking a shower was always going cold, the outside umbrella for shade was broken and not having your personal access to the beach was a little unconvenient considering we were Oceanfront. Price was way too high for what we got.
Reviewed on Jul 24, 2018 by Dane M, Hendersonville, NC   Report

Hi Dane. We’re very sorry you did not have a great experience. We’re quite clear that this is an older home on Folly Beach, that there’s no direct beach access because of the protected sand dunes. There’s actually a beach access every block on Folly Beach so the beach gets pretty crowded everywhere at peak season. If you’re looking for uncrowded you’d have to go down to the Lighhouse Preserve beyond the washout but even then in July, sunny weekends bring out all the tourists and the locals.

Someplace was amazing for my and my husband. This was a trip for our second anniversary and we couldn’t have been happier with our stay there. It’s more on the private side, which is great for people who need some space after a day spend out in town. The beach by the house is lovely. It doesn’t get too crowded during the day and it’s relatively quite. You can tell the locals frequent this part of folly beach. We spent a lot of time on the wonderful deck. It was great to have a cup of coffee on the swing! It’s an older house, make sure you know this before renting. We loved the character and charm, but some may not. The kitchen is fully stocked with blender, coffee pot, toaster and more! Overall our stay was AMAZING and we can’t wait to come back soon!

I have rated this compared to other houses I have rented along the beaches of the Carolinas. Expect to pay over $900 in additional fees, and we were assessed an additional $100 smoking fee after we left when my daughter and I have never smoked! The carpets in the bedrooms were very dirty, blinds never cleaned. Microwave only partially working, wifi very intermittent. You could put saddles on the cockroaches! Upper story boarded up and very unattractive. Someone lives part of the time below, and TV was on until after midnight. Note there is no washer or dryer. However the bathrooms and kitchen were clean, there were plenty of towels, the back porch and huge deck very lovely and the ocean view as depicted.

Thank you for your review. We would like to address each issue above: Smoking Fine - we realized that the smoke was not from you, our mistake, and have refunded $100 to your account. Carpets are cleaned regularly and we will address the owner about "replacing the blinds". We also will notify the owner about WiFi and Microwave. We have regular (monthly) extermination, however with the unusual hot weather, there may have been an affect of increased beach bugs...we have taken the appropriate steps to notify the exterminator to "double-up" treatment. Bugs are a part of SC beach life, as I am sure you understand. Palmetto Bugs are larger than roaches....and they fly. They look like giant roaches. (For those of you not familiar to SC beaches). Windows/Doors left open will allow their entrance, especially when the sun goes down. The boarded windows are due to "Hurricane Season" which ends Nov. 30th, for those folks unfamiliar with that information. The 3rd floor is not open for renters. We advertise openly that the there is a resident living on the level below. They have a separate entrance, and do not use the BBQ, deck, or parking space when guests are present. As advertised, the unit does not have a washer/dryer, but rather a really funky/famous, actually, laundromat just down the street if it is necessary to do laundry during your short-term stay. In this guest's case with a baby, they didn't understand...ps-they asked prior to arriving and we were very clear with them, and sent a link to the island's laundromat. For the most part, guests are really just OK with this very rustic/casual/#beachlife/#saltlife gem....as recognized by the many 5 Star reviews that precede this review....and, had we known that they had these specific needs previously, we would have certainly suggested a different property. With all that said, we appreciate the review and appreciate the moment to address each situation for future guests!! Thank you so much! -iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team

This is a very nice cottage, beachfront, with a deck overlooking the ocean. I opted not to cook and ate out, so I did not use the kitchen. It is a short drive to Center Street, the main business section of Folly Beach. Two things: the hot water in the shower was interrupted and ran cold before returning to hot, and the back door, while locked, was not secure.

We've been home less than a week from our stay at Someplace Else, and I am pining to return! Such a comfortable home, and the outdoor space is unbeatable. My 81-year old mother was with us and is NOT a beach person. But, having the wonderful deck that goes all the way down to the beach allowed her to enjoy the beach along with us. We really spent most of our time on the deck: started our morning there with our cups of coffee and tea and ended the day there with our glasses of wine. Loved watching all of the surfers, people walking their dogs, and even yoga on the beach one morning. The unexpected greeting from Marsha on Monday morning with our bottle of wine, homemade cookies, and advice on which restaurants to go to during our stay was a special delight. I have rented many beach houses on Folly over the years, and this was - by far - our best experience. If you are someone who likes fancy appointments, this may not be the place for you. It's a rustic, charming, comfortable, and clean beach house which lacks nothing in creature comforts. It's the way I remember beach houses growing up. We plan on making this our vacation destination for the future.

Our last minute visit during Xmas holidays was an effortless joy that provided just was a few holiday weary folks needed. The house was well equipped with everything needed. Our tall son had to make a "t" out of the 2 small single beds to accommodate how long he is, but managed. It was a chilly time of year and new blankets would've been nice, but all in all the location, porch swing, and walk through the trees to get to the beach was a much needed slice of heaven.

Thanks for your comments. Many people specifically enjoy the charm of this beach cottage, we don't try to be like a fancy condo. Our listing clearly states "Please note: An owner family member and his wife for work reasons utilize a ground floor level apartment on site weeknights but never on weekends. They both work outside the home, leaving early and arriving late, and will be very sensitive to the privacy of your visit. You won't know they are there. They will not be using the outdoor deck or grill." There is no 3rd living area, the top level you see in the pictures is purely unfinished attic.

1301 East Ashley has never let us down. We began staying here about 10 years ago and just finished our 5th stay ending a 10 night trip on 9/25/16. Home was cozy and clean as usual and booking process was as smooth as it could be. I will admit that not being able to walk directly to the beach from the back deck as we had done in past stays was irritating at first but we eventually got used to using the public access next to the property. Perfect weather and uncrowded beach made our stay just what the doctor ordered. 2 thumbs up again Folly Beach !

The world changes everyday, but there is something constant and beautiful and simple about the views from that deck, and enjoying the balance of nature!

Loved this property on the beach. It was close enough to hear the waves, and see the foam, but situated above and away for privacy. There is an amazing wooden patio/deck that extends a good twenty five yards from the house, to the beach. It has a big swing for romantic sunsets, but we used the deck to lie on, when we wanted to be closer to the house, or just didn't feel like dealing with sand. The house is older, with a lot of character. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but if you want to wake up in the morning, look out of your bedroom window, and see waves breaking, it's comfortable. It has a screened in porch, satellite TV, and all the appliances for a relaxing getaway. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Thank you for this descriptive review, George! We are happy you were comfortable and enjoyed the beautiful deck and beach views...especially from the swing! A note to future guests...this is not a handicap accessible home...there are stairs. - iTrip Charleston Team

Our trip to folly was amazing, the house had everything we needed, it was very clean and comfortable. Had no problem with the WIFI and the view was breathtaking. Could not ask for a better house. I just highly recommend to bring extra mosquito repellent !

Someplace Else is truly an oasis in Folly Beach. I have rented houses on South Carolina beaches for 13 years and have never experienced such a wonderful trip as my recent trip to Someplace Else. The 3 decks are perfect and secluded. The most well appointed kitchen I have ever seen----and everything works ! Especially enjoyed the water filtration system so we could actually DRINK the water. There were 3 elderly ladies in my party and we weathered Tropical Storm Hermine together. Minor damage from the storm was immediately handled by the property manager. Another first for me---arrival gift of wine and cookies ! If this home was for sale, I would buy it immediately ! In the meantime, I would happily rent this home again. Again, many thanks to the awesome Property manager.

You are so right about this being a great spot, and I suspect the lowered review from a possible 5 stars is based on something you shared with me when we met; this cabin doesn't have the glitz of a resort-type rental, which we admit. It is a a wonderfully private beach cabin that is just what many are looking for, see the 3 preceding reviews. -iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team

My family had a wonderful stay, it has a very relaxing atmosphere, the deck is awesome. Marsha was wonderful as she came by and brought some welcoming gifts and gave us info on the area which helped greatly. I would highly recommend this place if you want some R&R with excellent views. We will definitely be coming back to stay at "Somewhere Else".

The view and access to the beach are awesome. The actual beach access is conveniently located adjacent to the property which since there's no direct beach access, adds additional security and safety for your family. Loved drinking my coffee in the morning and coctails in the afternoon on the swing overlooking the ocean! Dave Rockey, the property manager made us feel welcome and was always available to us and I would absolutely rent from him again. One of the best property managers we have ever had interaction with. The house is rustic and needs some updating but is conveniently located to beach and town.

We found this beach house on a last minute decision to go to Folly Beach. It's a rustic, cozy house that makes like you are in a beach house in Hawaii. The Tiki hut, the huge deck, the swing, and the view all combined with this nostalgic house gave us everything we were looking for and more. We had 3 boys with us, 2 20 year olds and an 18 year old and they did not want to leave. The house is clean. The bed in the master bedroom is insanely comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Marsha met us with yummy cookies and a bottle of wine and Dave made the booking very smooth. We will book again for next summer or sooner. There is a plaque in the house that reads, "When the world burdens you, comfort your soul by the sea. ". Needless to say we left Folly Beach with our souls comforted.

Decks and view surpassed our dreams. Loved the private bathroom off the second bedroom. Beach wasn't too crowded- just enough to be interesting. Love the family's collection of beach art, and the tikki bar was a delight for outdoor dining. Owner and agent were super accommodating of our needs. We will return!

I am happy you are returning, you will find a new dishwasher, new living room carpet, new window blinds in the second bedroom. I wish you would have called me immediately upon arrival regarding cleanliness, my cleaner is often highly praised in reviews. I think she had just hired additional help, and more supervision was needed. I would have sent them back to redo their work.

The beach house and then entire reservation process made this 7 night stay just about perfect. The house itself is homey; the decore simply says "Welcome". Our flight was very late in getting in and we were delayed in getting the rental car so arrived at the house very late. Marcia, the welcome lady, was concerned when we didn't arrive (she was waiting to greet us) and contacted the property manager who called us to find out if we were OK or lost. I was impressed. Marcia came back the next day and gave us a plate of cookies and a bottle of wine along with an abundance of friendly information about Folly Beach. The kitchen has all the applicances we needed and everything worked fine. The beds were very comfortable and we were able to see the ocean from the large windows in the bedroom. The living room was a nice place to relax when the sun went down. The deck is huge. It was so nice to begin the day with a cup of coffee while sitting on the deck looking at the waves come in. We had a great time here.

I really don't kno where to start. Our experience was awesome from booking to checkout! Dave, the property manager and the cleaning service went wayyy above and beyond to help us get our frozen food in early on the very busy 4th of July weekend! The house was cleaned extra extra well!!! We practically lived on the several huge decks with amazing views of the ocean. Also, we loved that the homes decor was like that of my childhood while still having updated luxuries. You could honestly cook Christmas dinner in the kitchen it was so well appointed. Location was so convenient to everything! Hoping to return next year! Loved it!!!!!

3 generations had a good time at this Folly Beach rental. The outdoor space is wonderful and very safe if you have little ones. There were 6 of us sleeping there each night, but often there were 5 more during the day. We had plenty of room. The first day we were there, we met the rental agent and the hostess. Both were accommodating and took care of our questions and concerns. Inadvertently, we left a small item and felt really good that it was cheerfully mailed back to us. I gather that some updates for this home are in progress. If I needed a place for 4 adults, I would stay again. I counted them: 100 steps from our driveway to the beautiful Folly beach -- that can't be beat.

I grew up summers on Topsail Island, NC and this home brought back so many great childhood memories! BUT......with modern amenities! Dave, the realtor could not have been BETTER! He personally moved heaven and earth to get us in so I could get frozen casseroles in freezer on the oh so busy fourth of July Saturday. Wayyyyy beyond the call of duty. We were stocked with enough towels for a family of 8! Everything was sparkling clorax clean! They even provided summer weight blankets. I simply can't say enough about the MANY decks and views!!!!!! Absolutely awesome, yet private from your neighbors. I loved the location being a bit from Main St., more families, yet close to anything! Marsha, the welcome lady, brought us a lovely bottle of Pinot Gregio and a plate of cookies and explained how to use electronics,etc. Such a lovely personality! Dave worked with me every step of the way from booking to early arrival. He's the absolute best, and I've fealty with all the major realtors down there! All I can say is book it before it gets totally full!!!! Thank you again for everything and I HOPE to return next summer!!!!!

.My wife and I were looking to get away for a quiet week near Charleston and be on the beach. Someplace Else gave us what we needed. Sitting on the deck was like being on a private beach. The bushes on either side made it very private. The rustic feel of the place was just what we were looking for. Every night we sat by the fire. We took long walks on the beach and watched fireworks on New Years Eve down the beach. The location was only a short drive to down town Charleston. Plenty of stores on the way to buy food/gas. If you are looking for clean and cozy, this is the place. Thanks to Dave and Marsha who were very helpful.

1) Thought we were on beach. However, had beach access. This was not too bad as access was next door. 2) Fans were covered in dust. 3) Tray under ice maker was filthy. 4) House was too cluttered. 5) Silverware trays were filthy. 6) Only one extra roll of toilet tissue was given. 7) Marsha was to come back on Saturday to change out propane tank. She never showed up. However, her welcome was very nice and she was very informative. 8) Decks were very nice. 9) Light switches should be marked. Hard to locate. 10) Why should I have to empty trash and unmake beds if I'm paying $160 cleaning fee? 11) Windows to deck were dirty. 12) Bottom drawer in bedroom was busted. 13) Mirror in bathroom was broken. 14) Top rack of dishwasher was broken. 15) No problem booking house. We will not be staying here again.

I am sorry you found this house less than perfectly clean, I have many reviews where my cleaners are specifically praised. I wish I had heard of your complaints early in your stay rather in a negative review after you departed, I would have sent the cleaners back out. As for the "clutter", I respect individual tastes; other reviews from just before your stay awarded us top marks. Thank you for your comments, it allows me the opportunity to ask all guests to voice their dissatisfaction early so we can help make things right and give everyone a great vacation.

I felt very lucky to have found this place. My son, who turned 16, wanted to surf at Folly for his birthday, which also happened to fall around his spring break. I did not know that I could make his dream a reality until I found this place and it is truly "Someplace Else". The service was incredible. The "Welcome Lady" (Marsha) gave us a quick tour of the home, gave us valuable information and provided us with "arrival gifts". Everyone enjoyed those! We loved the home, perfect for our needs. The two decks, screened-in-porch, and contemporary bathroom with green sink and stand-up-shower were my personal favorites. The location was great -- very close to where my son and his best friend was to have their surfing lessons. In fact the location was so good, people came to us. Their "surf coach" ended up coming to our location for their follow-up sessions; the owner of the "golf cart" rental delivered and picked up from our location. It worked out great! The amenities were pretty good too. The big bedroom with the queen bed worked out great for my daughter and her friend. Although it was great -- I guess if I could ask for anything to make it perfect, it would be to add a washer and dryer, and a tv for each of the bedrooms. If those things were there and I was independently wealthy, I guess I would never leave. Oh, I almost forgot, the owners paid lots of attention to detail on the interior and exterior, lots of wood, stone, granite, and stucco. Plus we were easy to find, because we were the only copper roof on the beach!! Thanks again. We definitely will be back. My son told me he has a new passion -- which is surfing non-stop!!

If one wishes a large modern home with all the accoutrements this place is not for you. But if you wish a place on the ocean with a phenomenal deck and screened in porch at a great value this place cannot be beat. We spent a week in June, 2013 at the home (our 10th season at Folly Beach) and never had more ocean and sand friendly accommodations at such a reasonable price.Patrick Murphy
