Thanks Gina. I'm happy to hear that you had a fun time even with those last few days of beach restoration disruption! Hopefully next time you'll get to enjoy the lovely new beach! Steven

Thanks Cain! Glad Someplace Else was a great location for your family vacation. That swing is pretty special! Steven
Thank you Leslie! It was a pleasure to meet you all and we're glad you loved the beach home! We look forward to seeing you again soon or bumping into you up in NC on our vacation!! Steven
Thank you Stephanie! It can be mesmerizing sitting in the swing chair on the beach watching the waves crash ashore! Easy to forget about anything else!!
Not uncommon on the beach... This property, along with all others I manage, is on a professional quarterly treatment schedule. While it is not uncommon during extreme swings in weather such as rain or high heat to suddenly see more. We would have been delighted to offer a repeat treatment to the property would we have known. Hopefully next time you can return and we can spoil you to a 5 star stay! - iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team

Thanks again, and we hope to see you really soon!! -iTrip Vacations - Charleston East Team
Thank you for your stay and review of Someplace Else - Folly Beach, Michael! We are so happy you were comfortable and enjoyed your relaxing stay at this beautiful beach and vacation rental...fun, relaxing, private! - iTrip Vacations Charleston Team
So glad you could visit. Please return soon, and let us know what we can do to turn this 4-star review into a 5-star review! - iTrip Vacations Charleston Team
Fantastic!! Thank you for this review and your impressions of our service. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at this terrific Beachfront Property...such a gem! - iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team
We are so happy you came to experience this island cottage. We acknowledge twin beds are not made for folks 6 feet tall, but are glad you recognized the charm of Someplace Else!
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.
Jerry, what a fun story! You have stayed her so many times and have experienced the changes and the beauty thru the years. We are very privileged to have your review. 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! Thank you for your stay and review!! - iTrip Charleston Team
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
Glad you enjoyed this gem of a cottage. Yes, we have had an exceptionally wet season, despite all the sunshine!
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
Delightful! We are happy that you enjoyed the stay and treats from Miss Marsha! Thank you for your review and we look forward to your return...the ocean will call you back! -iTrip Vacations Charleston Team
ahhhhh...we agree...such a beautiful spot to "get away from it all." We are delighted you took advantage of the bliss! Thank you for your review and we look forward to your return to relaxation! - iTrip Vacations Charleston Team
Thank you for your kind review! We agree...the Swinging Bench is an incredible spot to finally exhale from the hustle of life! We invite you back soon!
We could not agree more!! Someplace Else is named for that reason...it is a special "Someplace Else" away from the hustle and expectations...it is a place to connect, refresh, rejuvenate! We are trilled you enjoyed your time with your family, and we look forward for your return. Thank you for the review as your visitor perspective is so helpful for future visitors.
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.
A new dishwasher will be installed July 21, 2015
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.
Thanks, Patrick. You hit the nail on the head.
