Frequently Asked Questions

Please be aware & mindful that there are alligators throughout the fresh water areas of Charleston, SC. You should assume that there is an alligator in every pond, lake & fresh water river.  Please do not allow small children or dogs near the edge of these fresh water areas.  DO NOT feed or taunt the alligators!
Please note that there is construction ongoing throughout the Charleston area and on all of the Islands. Many of our managed homes are in areas where there has been intense real estate activity and there are almost continous home improvements going on in addition to the normal off season routine maintenance.

We don't get notice of construction projects but please let us know if you encounter excessive noise.  Contractors are required to obey all noise limits and working hour restrictions.   
Please do not afix balloons, banners or other 'party' signs to walls, cabinets or other structures. These will remove the paint. You will be charged for the cost to repair each item damaged. The cost to repaint a wall can easily be $250 alone. 
Beds will be freshly made, towels* laid out and a starter set of amenities like soap, lotion and shampoo are provided too. We also provide a starter set of kitchen paper and toilet paper to get you going as well as some laundry and dish detergent. If you need additional supplies you will need to provide those beyond the starter set. 

*We provide 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 wash cloth per person. Additional towels are available to rent at an addional charge. Requests must be made more than 24 hours prior to check in. 
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time. They can be pretty big, can fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. Rest assured all of our homes are professionally treated at least quarterly for pests. Any bugs that manage to get inside will die quickly.

According to Eric Benson, Ph.D. professor and extension entomologist at Clemson University “It has nothing to do with cleanliness or the economic conditions of the area,” said Benson. “They could be around the nicest home or the nicest hotel or resort.”

If you leave the doors or windows open, especially at night, you will likely see a few. This is perfectly normal. If you see 20 or 30 all in one place then please let us know. This might mean we have a nest somewhere in the home and we'll need to get pest control out to take care of it. This is extremely rare!  

Please don't worry about bugs, enjoy your vacation. You'll likely not see any while you are here, we just include this note so you understand it's not unusual to see some and it doesn't mean the home isn't well looked after! 

Most community pools remain open from March through October but this does vary by resort and is subject to maintenance schedules and emergency closures for health reasons. Please contact us to see if the pool will be closed during your fall or winter vacation.

We do not manage any of these community pools and are not responsible for management of them. We do not provide refunds for pool closure. 

The premises, all fixtures thereon and all property on or around the premises is provided to Tenant “as is” without any warranties of any kind.  None of iTrip Vacations, Sea Oats Vacation Property Management, Inc. or the owner of the premises shall be responsible for any direct, indirect, consequential or incidental damages arising out of or relating to this Rental Agreement.  The use of the premises is at Tenant’s own risk.

Many homes have gargabe disposals. Not all food is suitable for disposing of in a garbage disposal.  

Do not put any chemicals, hot oil, grease, coffee grinds, pasta, bones, shells of any kind, oatmeal, nuts, onion skins, eggshells, trash, pumpkins, fibrous vegetables, lettuces, stringy vegetables, potato peel, pits, corn husks down the disposal.  

We check the disposal is working prior to all guest arrivals. 
In the event the disposal or kitchen sink plumbing is blocked due to material put down the disposal this is the responsibility of the guest.  If a plumber has to be called then the guest will be charged for that visit. 

Please NO PARTIES, EVENTS, PERFORMING ARTISTS OR BANDS ARE ALLOWED AT ANY TIME! These are cause for eviction with no refund and may damage our ability to offer the home for future guests exposing you to liability. This is a quiet residential neighborhood -- please be respectful of the home's neighbors at all times.

Properties may include a noise alert monitoring system and other electronic devices in order to ensure that neighborhood noise and occupancy levels are respected. Do not tamper with amny device. 

Occupancy is limited at all times during your stay - day or night - to the maximum 'sleeps' number stated in the listing. Please do not invite additional people to the home. 

Early Check-in
We work hard to try and allow our guests to get in early. This depends on check out times, cleaning and inspection schedules as well as any maintenance issues. We will text on the day of arrival once we know we can allow an early check in. 

Phone Number
Please make sure your mobile number is up to date in your iTrip account. This will allow us to offer you an early check in!

Travel Agents
Depending on which travel website you book through you may see a separate charge for their booking fee. 

Late Check-Out
We will consider late check out requests on days when we do not have an incoming guests. We really appreciate it you can be checked out by 10am. Please let us know if you do check out earlier, we will start cleaning as soon as we can so the next guest can enjoy an early start to their vacation!

Please pay attention to parking restrictions. Many homes have limited parking available. We don't want you to get a ticket or towed!

Please contact the travel agent that you used to make your booking if you wish to cancel. They will notfiy us directly. 

Things to Do!
Check out our activities website: Charleston Activities 

Our vacation homes are located in quiet residential areas. We generally have great relations with our local neighbors and we want to keep it that way. Please pay particular attention to:

- No loud noises after 9pm. (Includes no Hot Tub use after 9pm)
- Only park in the designated areas (not on the landscaping) 
- Do not roll out trash to the street, trash service will do this
- Do not hang beach towels over railings or leave beach gear outside

- On Kiawah island - Bikes must be in the garage (if there is access) or in a designated bike rack or out of sight of the road after dark. 

- Beach Front Homes - TURTLE SEASON No lights visible from beach (May 1 to Oct 31)

The Cities will issue a ticket and a fine for these items. 

No barbeque grills of any kind are permitted on balconies or in the unit. No open flames (i.e., candle burning) are permitted on balconies or in the unit. Do not dismantle smoke detectors as they are there for your protection. Use the overhead stove fan when cooking to avoid accidental, activation of smoke detector alarm.

The guest will be charged a $200 repair and inspection fee for tampering with or deactivating a smoke alarm or noise monitor.


All County & City ordinances during rental occupancy must be followed. Non compliance of any of these ordinances will result in eviction of the property and forfeiture of all monies paid.   Tenant agrees to pay any fines levied by the County, City and Town and further Tenant will be liable to Homeowner and Agent for any and all lost rental revenues from the suspension or removal of their business licenses as a result of Tenants actions.      

These ordinances include but are not limited to:

We utilize third party professional service companies for the provision of Handyman Services, A/C & Heating Repair, Pest Control, Wildlife Removal, Plumbing Repair, Pool & Hot Tub Service, Electrical Repairs, Appliance Repairs and any other repair or maintenance of a technical or specialist nature.  We only used trusted, reputable professional service companies to assess, repair and replace equipment that needs attention. We will work with them to get the first available service appointment. Given the Post COVID economy it can be a challenge to get fast, timely service. Rest assured we will do our best to resolve issues quickly and our service providers understand our need for fast, reliable care.  Due to the global supply crunch, parts and even replacement units may not be available which can be frustrating. Please be patient as we work hard behind the scenes to make small miracles happen on a daily basis!

No one may perform any maintenance work on the home without our specific permission in writing.  
Our rates automatically adjust for the season as well as to reflect supply and demand. To access the best rate please begin the booking process on the iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches site (don't worry you won't be charged until you're ready to book). This will present you our current up-to-date rates!
The person who makes the reservation must be over 25 years old and must be present during the entire stay.   A mobile number must be provided where we can contact the primary renter at all times. If code enforcement call us with any issues we need to be able to contact someone onsite with 60 minutes to address any issus or you may be liable for any fines imposed by the local government. 

We recommend adding a second mobile number to your account to make sure we can contact someone at all times. This second number may also be used to receive door codes in the event the first phone dies or is left in the unit. (It happens a lot and we are unable to provide codes to spouses or family members for security reasons). 
We want everyone to have a great stay but we understand that things may break or some items may get overlooked. We'll do our best to get them fixed (please review the “Maintenance House Rule” on what this means). 
We do ask that all guests TAKE TIME TO BE KIND.  Common courtesy goes a long way.  Sadly since the pandemic we have all witnessed an increase in aggressive or unacceptable behavior.  Our team has taken a lot of abuse and experienced some very unkind guests.   

Misunderstandings are one of the leading causes of guest complaints. Please make sure you read everything we send to you.  This include the entire rental listing, all of our house rules, all photos, all emails & texts and all the help articles in your iTrip account. This helps avoid misunderstandings in the first place. 
For our own safety and security we have a zero tolerance rule with guests who are rude, abusive, discourteous or argumentative.  We do not engage with those guests any more beyond asking them to read our TAKE TIME TO BE KIND policy.  

Our vacation homes are on a septic tank or a city sewer system. It is important that guests do not put large amounts of toilet paper or any other other products down the toilet.  We flush all toilets prior to a guests arrival to verify that they are working correctly. Any blockages that occur during the guests stay at the home are the responsibility of the guest to unblock. If a plumber is required to unblock a toilet then the guest will be charged $250 for that visit. 
Charleston and suburbs are charming places to stay.  It should be noted that Charleston is also a working Port City and has a large manufacturing base (including Boeing, Mercedes and other major international manufacturers). Since we are both very flat and surrounded my water sound at night can travel very far.  

Train noise, airplane noise, road noise and manufacturing noise may be audible during your stay depending on weather conditions and wind direction.

We do not offer refunds, credits or discounts in the event that you find these to be problem. Light sleepers should bring ear plugs or a white noise machine. Many phones can download a white noise machine too. They work well. 

We're available by text from 8am to 8pm. For urgent issues after 8pm please call this number for our After Hours service. They will alert us for urgent issues or leave a note for us for non-urgent issues. In emergency dial 911.  

Urgent issues include: Being locked out, water leaks. 

Emergency Issues include: Gas leaks. Fire. Life Safety Issues. Call 911. 

Issues that will typically be dealt with the next day include Air Conditioning issues.

Power Outages: These can be frequent on the islands. Power company's are quick to resolve. If it doesn't not appear to be a neighborhood wide outage please contact us. 

Buyer beware! We do not put any of our homes on Craig s list. If you see one of our homes on there it is a scam. Please NEVER send money to anyone posing as a host on Craig s list. If they send you a contract and they don't disclose their name it's an easy way to know that they are scammers. 

Please call or text us if you are not sure that the listing is genuine. 
We don't accept change requests for reservations within 60 days of the check in date. You should cancel and rebook your new dates.

If you book a pet friendly property then the following provisions (included in the rental agreement) apply:

  • ALL PETS ARE SUBJECT TO APPROVAL, please let us know what you would like to bring with you. 
  • WE ONLY ALLOW DOGS (Canis familiaris). THAT'S IT. 
  • We ALLOW 1 small/medium sized dog FREE but additional dogs and large dogs (over 40lbs) are $75 per animal.
  • All dogs must be up to date on rabies and other vaccinations. (documentation from an accredited veterinarian must be provided by Guest upon request).

If there is no security deposit then the guest authorizes their credit card to be charged directly for the repair or clean up cost.  

We do NOT allow any animals other than DOGS, this means NO cats, NO birds (especially NO Parrots), NO livestock or other farm animals (Incuding domesticated pigs), NO insects, NO reptiles, NO Spiders, NO Ponies or other Horses and other 'exotic' pets.  In fact NOTHING OTHER THAN DOGS. (NO we don't allow dog-wolf hybrids either). This clause is dedicated to Airbnb and its guests who can't read or don't understand that parrots are not dogs. 

If you bring a non-approved Pet into the home there is a $500 clean up charge that will be applied to your account for each day the non-approved pet is present. 

Prohibited Breeds of Dogs. Please contact us to discuss your dog if it includes any mix of these breeds:

If the vacation home has the option of a heated pool please note that heating of the pool is available for an additional fee and heating is limited to 85F. All of our heated pools use propane which has to be delivered. Sometimes, due to the weather, the gas may run out before the next scheduled delivery. We will contact the gas company to schedule a refill as soon as we can but gas delivery can be difficult to arrange in Charleston. 

We don't recommend heating the pool when the ambient temperature is below 50F. This will drain the gas quickly. We do not provide refunds if the gas is used. If the pool heater isn't used and the gas is not used we can provide a pro rata refund based on days used. 


If the premises include a private or community pool (including hot tubs), then the Tenant hereby acknowledges that the premises they have reserved include a community pool and the undersigned agrees and acknowledges that the community pool and patio/deck can be dangerous areas, that the deck/patio can be slippery when wet, and that injury may occur to anyone who is not careful. With full knowledge of the above facts and warnings, the undersigned Tenant accepts and assumes all risks involved to Tenant and all of Tenant's guests in or related to the use of the private or community pool (including hot tubs) and patio areas.


 All private pools and hot tubs are serviced weekly and this is NOT always on the day of a guest arrival as check ins occur throughout the week.  

Our team will skim the surface of the pool before your arrival but we cannot vacuum out the pool or hot tub as only the pool service company can do that.  The pool service company will take care of this every week and they also balance the chemicals. We have a lot of storms which may change the appearance of the pool water in our pools - this is normal. The pool service company will be out to take care of it as soon as they can. 

If you are using the hot tub, please rinse off all sunscreen and sand before entering the water. If the hot tub is left in a dirty condition your credit card will be charged $250 charge to have it pumped out, cleaned and rebalanced.  

Must be over 25 years of age to rent any property. 

Person making the reservation must be present during the stay. DO NOT BOOK FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

Wonderful location
5/5 stars
This is our second time staying at the Shell Station House and we loved it both times. It’s the perfect location and has everything we need. The ONLY complaint is that there is very weak water pressure (if someone is doing laundry or in another bathroom it’s almost impossible to shower). Other than that I have nothing but good things to say. We’d stay here again gladly!!

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us. We are glad to hear that you had a positive experience and hope to see you again in the future. Steven, iTrip Vacations Charleston Beaches

Our Home Away from Home in Folly
5/5 stars
This was our second trip to the Shell House with a large group. We were greeted by a nice bottle of wine and key lime cookies as we unpacked for our stay. There is something and someplace for everyone in a large group. The younger ones could play games downstairs, or enjoy a game on the indoor porch. Others could enjoy the record play and kitchen/living area. The location is is so close to Bert's grocery, the beach, and all restaurants. It is in a private setting and you genuinely feel at home. We'll be back again!

Shell Station Review
5/5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at the Shell Station in Folly Beach. The house was charming and the location was fantastic. We could walk to everything. We even lucked out with the weather. We enjoyed playing vinyl on the stereo. We had seven people and there was plenty of room. It was also nice being able to bring our pets to the house.

Best Experience To-Date!!
5/5 stars
Thank you so much for such a great experience and letting us enjoy your beautiful home! Everything was just as we had expected it to be (by photos on website) and it was so convenient to everything. Beach, restaurants, pier, and shopping stores. We walked everywhere and didn't even need a golf cart. I cannot express to you how much this experience has changed my negative mindset of Airbnb properties. Our last experience was truly horrible and you gave myself and my family a magical experience that changed my POV. We will definitely stay at your home again if we return to Folly in the future!

Amazing Rental Home
5/5 stars
Our family stayed at the Shell Station House in mid-June and had such a pleasant visit! The house is located right off the bridge when you get to Folly Beach. It’s a 5 minute walk to the center of town and about a 7-8 minute walk to the beach. The house itself is in great condition, set with a screened in porch to enjoy the evening without any mosquitoes, a full outdoor table and grill to make a sunset dinner, and perfectly sized kitchen and living room space to lounge. There was a full collection of Vinyls and stereo setup that we turned on while home, it was great!! The landlords were extremely responsive and respectful. I’d rent this place again in a heartbeat!

5/5 stars
Great beach getaway! I was looking at another rental that was right on the beach but am so happy that we went with this one. It is back a few blocks from the beach, but has lots of shade so you can escape from the sun. Nice patio to sit on, and very quiet street. Still a short walk from the beach and restaurants. Plenty of space for 6 people. Host provides beach chairs, umbrella and towels. Lots of mosquitos in August so bring bug spray. Highly recommend.

We had a girls weekend at Shell Station and it could not have been more perfect! The house is absolutely adorable with plenty of space for everyone. Bathrooms, kitchen, and bedrooms were all very clean, comfortable, and stocked with supplies. We could not have asked for a better location to restaurants and the beach. The host also left cute personal touches for our group, which did not go unnoticed. I highly recommend ITrip Vacations and Shell Station!

Great Family Retreat
5/5 stars
The layout of the home is great for multiple activities. Fully equipped kitchen is open to 6+ person dining area and fireplace. A screened patio area for morning coffee and evening chats is off the leather seating area with library of DVDs and books. There's even a collection of record albums and player for us 60+ year olds. The bedrooms are great and separated by living area. Children or teens have large area downstairs with games, video screen, laundry and bathroom. We liked that many supplies were there to get started! Shell Station House is convenient to all a 3 generation family wanted to do: sun, boogie board and walk beach, pick up reserved bikes and ride for miles on flat streets, walk to town for food and shopping, 25 min drive for a day enjoying Charleston, short car trip to walk Morris Island Lighthouse area, 3 mi to larger grocery and on way back pick up fresh seafood at Crosby's Fish & Shrimp for the new grill on back deck with large dining area. In this COVID-19 period, we felt safe. The town's homes are colorful and there's areas full of natural wonder. The people are really nice. Children's park, tennis, basketball, & dog park nearly. Folly Island County Park & James Island County Park are nearby. The owners of Shell House really thought through all the details to make your stay relaxing.

The Shell Station House is a one-of-a-kind home on Folly Beach. It’s centrally located, decorated beautifully and had everything we needed for a relaxing month long stay at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Four adults and 2 small dogs stayed for a week during which the Island closed to new short term renters. Steven helped us extend our visit for 3 more weeks (with one less adult and dog). He was very helpful and the Shell House at Folly Beach was a wonderful,place to begin “Stay Safe-Stay Home.” We look forward to returning again next year!

We spent the month of February here at the Shell house. It’s a great house with plenty of room. The location is excellent.

The location and house was were perfect. It is close enough for a quick walk to Center street and the beach for action, but far enough that it was very quiet and peaceful while relaxing on the shady deck. We took full advantage of all the amenities offered, played board games on the screen porch with the kids, beach chairs and umbrella, etc. The floor plan is perfect, the 7 of us were able to spend time together in the main areas and still able to have enough privacy to not feel crowded. We had a great time and the home was a big part of that! Would definitely rent it again and recommend it to others! Thank you!

We took advantage of the screened in deck for evening board games with the kids, and the outdoor deck for daytime shady relaxation after enjoying the full sun at the beach!

This home is everything and more you could want for a quiet time at the beach! Although there is no view of the ocean, the comforts and beautiful appointments of the house make up for it. It is only a 2 block walk from the beach, but I never left. It was so comfy and has every ammenity you need. Beautifully decorated and comfortable. The only problem I had was the stairs. I am on disability and had to confine myself to one floor and go to the "man cave" which is so wonderful through the bottom floor. But it is accessible. Secluded, quiet and so close to the town of Folly. Would love to stay there again!

Plenty of space for everyone, easy for all to come and go after we coded in a simple pass #, SO close to everything, especially Bert's. (Yay Bert's!) Went to Charleston one or two days, but mostly wanted to stay in our Folly Bubble. Owner checked in with us by phone on our first day to see if we needed anything. We didn't have any issues with the house, clean and lovely, kitchen implements were well stocked, was perfect for our wants and needs, and we will definitely rent again. Also highly recommend renting bikes to bike to the lighthouse (thanks Matt). If you want to be close to all that Folly has to offer, this is the place.

Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. I brought my own large roasting pan as we were there for Thanksgiving. The futon not as comfy for sleeping, but my college aged son didn't mind really. He was excited to find a pilsner glass there from a local bar at his university in PA! Spiral stairs are fine for most, but definitely not for elderly or super young IMO. My mother in law tried them to see the other levels, but wasn't super comfortable doing so. Heat didn't work the first night but we found a space heater. The following day we called David, and it was fixed within the hour. Fantastic!

3/5 stars
We stayed from a Sun-Wed. House was in a great location and the deck was a nice place to relax. The house was very clean and the towels were nice and fluffy. Our only big complaint is that the spiral staircase was very narrow and almost impossible to get luggage up or down. Not kid safe as the gate wouldn't stay closed. Minor issues were that door was always locking behind us and it would have been nice to have a code to keep it open. The king beg was also lacking in support and looked very old as you could see body indentions. We contacted Dave the house manager about lack of a trash can and never heard back from him although 2 showed up on the day we left. More cleaning supplies would be helpful also.
- Gigi

Thank you for your review. Our guests are supplied with instructions once they have opened the lock for the first time that allows them to reprogram a very simple code of their choosing. This is the main entrance to the home, and we have to employ this safety feature. Many people with small children appreciate this feature. I did contact these guests asking them to confirm receipt of the new trash bins, but never heard from them. Homes are at the mercy of the Town of Folly Beach's schedule. Sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable, had we known we could have provided a topper to the mattress for you. As advertised, and per our phone conversation prior to your arrival, we provide a Starter Set of Soaps and Kitchen/Bath paper & Bags (as is also standard in the industry here on Folly Beach). -iTrip Vacations Charleston East Team

The house was located about 3 blocks from the beach and about the same from town. Great location to all the night life, my grown sons walked everywhere for entertainment. The house was also a great space, nice porches, bedrooms, and common areas. The house is decorated with style and we loved the turntable and albums! The only issues we had upon check-in were that the floors were not clean and there was limited paper products. The upstairs room was also fairly warm, the air conditioner had problems keeping it cool. Overall this is a great house for a large family.
- Meurt

Thank you very much for this review. We are happy you enjoyed Folly Beach and The Shell Station House. It is multi-layered and multifaceted. If the porch or deck door is left open, then it becomes difficult to maintain the temperature, especially on steamy S. C. days. (Wish we had known about the floors, as we would have sent our cleaning crew there immediately to make the situation better for you.) As advertised, we supply a "starter set" of paper (usually 1 or 2 days worth) an if a guest is staying longer, you may need to bring more. (This is standard practice with Vacation Rentals). But, again, we would have been delighted to run more over for you. Hope you can return soon so that we can earn 5 stars next time! -iTrip Vacations - Charleston East Team

Last week, I fell in love with Folly Beach! The people are so nice, friendly, and love to have a good time. The Shell Station house was 2-3 blocks away from everything we needed, we never even started the car up again once we got there. Restaurants, coffee, 24/7 grocery, beach, good times were just steps away from this lovely home. We were traveling with ~8 of our closest friends and this house have plenty of room for us to spread out! We especially love the Foosball table and all the games the house had already there! I can't wait to visit again:)

Great Thanksgiving on Folly Beach
5/5 stars
Overall excellent stay. House is very comfortable, has immense charm, perfect location for enjoying Folly Beach restaurants, etc., a short stroll to the beach, a block from the justly fabled Bert's Market. Promised amenities were all there and working. Really liked and took advantage of the screened-in porch. And Dave Rockey did a superb job getting heating fixed as soon as I texted him that it wasn't working. Impressed in general w/ management responsiveness. One or two minor quibbles - house could use a more thorough cleaning. Once we got below the surface (e.g., using baking pans) we had to do some pre-use washing, and oven really needs to be cleaned. Rather astonishing, too, to find that there were only 2 wineglasses, and they were plastic. Yet, three corkscrews...

You can't beat the location of the Shell House. Very short walk to restaurants and beach.Clean,comfortable beds,fluffy towels lots of room inside and out for large gatherings.Spiral staircase very pretty and functional but not easy for old dogs or old bones (mine) However,the main floor is large and with 2 bedrooms and a bath this was not a big issue for any of us.The lower floor is enormous and would be great for teens or large families.Had a great time.

Mostly Great Long Weekend
4/5 stars
Firstly, the location and size of this house is great. We also loved the off street parking, multilevel living spaces, screened in porch and open back porch. Ring toss!! We could walk to Bert's 24 hour market just a couple blocks away and the beach is a very short walk, too. We also could easily walk to downtown Folly restaurants and in our case, Folly Pallooza. Our only complaints were as follows: The lock is on a timer so you can't get into the house until exactly your check in time and the host was not at all accommodating to checking in even 10 minutes early. There was only one roll of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels in the whole house. There was a minor maintenance issue in the basement and after I reported it, I came downstairs to find the housekeeper had been directed to let herself in to look into it. While the quick response was appreciated, a knock or any sort of notice would have appreciated. Then she left her sunglasses and I was expected to coordinate a time to meet her at the house to turn them over. This was just a really annoying scenario considering how much we had paid for a private rental. There's only one bar of soap per bathroom so bring your own hand soap, shampoo, conditioner and anything else. There's no dish soap, laundry detergent, beach chairs, salt and pepper or any other product which is commonly purchased by renters and left for future renters. I'm guessing the house keepers are hoarding all of these things or even more terrifyingly wasteful - throwing them out. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and the house but those few little conveniences would have gone a long way and will be much appreciated by future guests.
- Claire

Thanks for the review, with all the complaints the 4 stars must represent that the house was terrific. The door lock is on a timer that coordinates with the checkin and checkout times provided to guests. I am happy to accommodate early checkins and late checkouts when possible, but it is a process that could take ten minutes to accomplish in the best of circumstances. The minor maintenance issue was described to us as water on the ground-level laundry room floor. This level also has a large living/sleeping area and one of the 3 bathrooms. (As it turned out, a gallon of water in a locked storage cabinet had been knocked over and was leaking.) Of course we sent someone to investigate immediately, and it happened to be the supervisor of the cleaning crew. She encountered one adult of the guest party on the deck before entering the house, and we never enter a rental without announcing ourselves as we open the door. She did leave an expensive pair of sunglasses in the laundry room, a birthday gift. I contacted the guest and asked her to leave them on a stand just inside the entrance door, the cleaners would retrieve them after the guests' stay was finished. Instead, the guest forwarded me a picture as to where she had left the sunglasses outside on the top of a small shed! I contacted her again to leave them safely inside. This was the only coordination requested. There was indeed a starter set of soaps and paper products, which includes a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, a bar of soap on the towel sets in every bedroom, a roll of paper towels for the kitchen, and tabs for the dishwasher, all of which is advertised in our listings. Beach chairs are stored in a shed under the house, that information was left out of the Check In Procedures, and has been corrected. Please call with any questions. Salt and pepper will be in the rental if left behind by previous guests, but laundry supplies and kitchen seasonings one should anticipate bringing or purchasing locally.

Celebrate at Folly Beach!
5/5 stars
The Shell Station House was perfect for our vacation. The house layout was great if you wanted some alone time. We celebrated an Anniversary and a birthday all in one week there.

Great house- needs amenities
4/5 stars
This house is great- very comfortable, affordable, amazing location. That said, there are some things to note- one of the showers is very short so you really have to sit down in it to shower- it's maybe meant to just be a bath. Also, there was no toilet paper, no dishwashing detergent, no trash bags, and no paper towels. So if you plan on staying here, it's probably a good idea to pack that stuff in- it's not cheap to buy it on Folly! The location is great though- close to the main street and the beach, and they had beach toys! Boogie boards and chairs and a little dolly to carry stuff to the beach- that stuff was much appreciated. The spiral staircase can be pretty lethal though.
- Kaitlyn

I am so sorry the stater set of supplies was not present upon your arrival. With our listing stating that a starter set of soap and paper products is included in the cleaning fee, we would have remedied the situation immediately. The spiral staircase is quite tight, but very safe with its hand rail.

Girls' Beach Trip
5/5 stars
My friends and I absolutely loved our stay at the Shell Station House! Everything was so nice, there were lots of options for activities, and accommodations were met for all of us! We also loved that we were able to do a quick walk to the beach and downtown as well as have a cheap Uber to downtown Charleston. We highly recommend staying at the Shell Station House!
- Carlon

That is Terrific!! We are thrilled that you were comfortable and found all the accommodations were just as y'all expected! Uber is a quick and easy way to travel to Downtown Charleston (avoiding the parking garage!) Your information is so important and helpful to future visitors. Thank you for this informative review! - iTrip Vacations - Charleston Team

Great House!
5/5 stars
My friends and I rented the Shell Station House on Folly Beach for a long weekend and, to say the least, we were very pleased with the stay. The Shell Station House has a fantastic location at Folly Beach; where it is walking distance to both the beach and the downtown area. During the day we had a great time at the beach and, for the evening, we were able to walk to the different bars that Folly Beach had to offer.

Awesome Property
5/5 stars
The beach house was fantastic. It was much bigger and roomier than we expected. The house was charming and had alot of unexpected treasures, like the beautiful spiral staircase, the screened in patio and the upstairs deck. Having additional wall unit air conditioners in the bedrooms (in an addition to central air) was an added plus. The walking distance to the beach and to the local restaurants (which were amazing) made for a perfect vacation destination. The management agent - Elizabeth Donn - was very professional, super helpful and a total delight. The only downside was one of the bedrooms did not have a TV, but there was so much to do there was no time for TV watching and the wifi connection was great. Love this property and Folly Beach and would return in a heartbeat!!

Shell Station House was legendary!
5/5 stars
This house was great! Dave Rockey was very accommodating! We had a little trouble with the lock on the door and he immediately came to fix it for us! The house itself was beautiful and comfortably fit 10 people! It is right down the street from the shops and restaurants and a 6 minute walk from the beach! There is no need to even get in your car, unless you want to go to Charleston which is a 10 minute drive! This vacation was ideal and the house was so perfect!
- Molly

Thank you for your kind review, but just so future guests understand, the MAXIMUM guest capacity is 8 Guests. We can provide Air Mattress(es)+bedding for a fee, but any guest count over 8 needs to be pre-approved.

The Perfect Getaway in a Beautifully Unique Home
5/5 stars
I booked this reservation for a group of 8 to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding. We had very high expectations based on the reviews and I can absolutely say that our expectations were far exceeded. The house was simply amazing. The enormous open layout of the dining room, living area and kitchen brought everyone together. We loved the accessibility of everything in the kitchen. There were more than enough dishes, utensils, cooking tools, etc. to allow us to cook many great meals for a large group. The spiral staircase bridging the lower level all the way through the center of the house to the upper (3rd) level gave the house such charm and community. The third floor provided for a quaint and private bedroom with a dedicated bathroom, and a balcony with awesome speakers connected to a record player that worked! Many great records were available (some favorites of ours included Simon and Garfunkel, The Doors and Sinatra!). The 2 bedrooms on the main (middle) floor were also very spacious and gave the couples in our group plenty of room for privacy. It's hard to choose where we enjoyed spending time most but the bottom level may have been the crowd favorite. Also a very open layout, we enjoyed playing board games (part of the house!), fooseball and hanging on the very comfortable couches/futons, late into the night. The downstairs bathroom was an added bonus and had one of the best showers I've ever taken. We also enjoyed the large deck at the back of the house -- we ate breakfast out there most mornings, except when the bugs were out, in which case the screened in porch at the front of the house was perfect! The location of the house couldn't have been better either. 4th row from the waterfront put us so close to the ocean it was wonderful taking morning and evening strolls to the shore. And for such a wonderful house, it's crazy how affordable it was! The house is also just a block or two from a great mini-grocery store which had most of everything we needed -- every day staples, plus prepared food and beer of course-AND they're open 24/7! And for all our other grocery needs-there's a Harris Teeter not 10 minutes away that has everything. There are a few really cool beachy bars on the way to the water and some amazing seafood restaurants all within walking distance. It was seriously hard for us to leave -- we all agreed we wished we could have stayed at least the rest of the week. Folly Beach is such a perfect juxtaposition of a pretty isolated island feel -- as if you're a thousand miles from your stresses and the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind, combined with amazing accessibility to bars, restaurants and shops -- perfectly suited to the Shell Station House. I truly look forward to returning. And I have to add that the trip was made that much better by Elizabeth Donn, who made the reservation for me through iTrip. She was so helpful and easy to work with. She always answered the phone every time I called and could not be more pleasant and genuine. And after returning home, when I realized that we had left some of our belongings at the house, she immediately made the effort to find our things, and ship them back up to New York for me. I couldn't be more thankful to her -- she made the trip completely relaxing and gave me a feel that, everything is taken care of -- exactly what I needed. Thank you Elizabeth.
