About Cindy Ashley

After 28 years, Cyn has retired from a teaching career. I am involved with the South Carolina Master Naturalist program, Yoga and Nia.

Den, an architect, continues to design and build projects. Ashley's tree house is one of my best projects. Cyn and I hand cleared the property and then spent a year building this magical place.

Cindy Ashley purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Cindy Ashley chose Charleston Area

We were driving down Cooper street and noticed an almost failing down, loosely nailed " for sale" sign. The property, looking thru the dense jungle growth, had major oak and palms trees. It seemed that this property had never been cleared. We fell in love with the possibility of living in this beautiful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Designing and then building one's own tree house retreat is truly a joyous adventure. We did not want to build a house at a beach but rather a beach house. Our family and friends enjoy the openness, the unexpected sculpture of the spaces. The morning view from the upstairs sleeping loft into the curved oak limbs in a treat and great way to start the day. One morning there was a raccoon in that tree looking back at us!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this awesome place for my sister's bachelorette party and the owners were sooo accomodating! In fact, the day we were to arrive Cindy texted me and said she was upgrading us to the treehouse next door since we were a group of five girls that would probably enjoy the bigger space... no charge to us! So I supposed part of this review if for the sister property right next door. Very very cool and spacious on the inside, such a unique place to stay! The kitchen had everythig we needed and we hardly to bring anything other than food. Center Street is a very short and easy walk, as is the beach. We decided Folly is our new favorite place and we will def be back!!! I don't have a single complaint :)

We enjoyed the Ashley Tree House very much. The architecture is very unique and comfortable.

The Ashley Tree House is well equipped and a very close walk to both the beach and the restaurant/shopping district of Folly Beach. The house is very peaceful and enjoyable. The Ashleys were very kind and accommodating. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Peaceful stay at the Tree House

  • 4 of 5

We spent last week at the Tree House and are ready to return to it. The accomodations were everything we wanted. The pictures on the website depict it perfectly. A serene setting in the trees, yet so close to the beach. It is within walking or biking distance of everything at Folly Beach. Cindy and Dennis are fabulous hosts and provide many extra amenities. We look forward to spending more time there in the near future.

Great location and enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose this house because it was quirky and unique. All of the reviews were accurate- upon arrival the house was immaculate, and felt "homey". Our family of five had a fantastic time, and the location was perfect for walking to the beach and around the town. We loved that we didn't have to worry about beach items-literally everything we needed, aside from sunscreen, was provided! We used the kitchen often, and even grilled out.

We also loved the open, airy floor plan. It kept the house cool in early August.

Our family loved that the house felt like it was in the trees. The "Ashley Treehouse" is not a misnomer. We would recommend friends and family come stay here..and we'd definitely come again. Thanks for everything!

Also, one last thing, the owners are incredibly responsive and easy to work with on all fronts.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review. It truly is a tree house in a maritime forest. The oak trees, saw palmettos and long leaf pines once covered all of the barrier islands. There are other remaining bits of this incredible ecosystem still standing but none as convenient to downtown and the ocean. Do come back, thanks for your gentle use and good care of the magic.

An early morning walk through the old coast guard station to watch the sunrise at Morris lighthouse is a great way to start a day. Then a short car trip to Bowens Island to eat shrimp and oysters, drink and watch the sunset over the marsh is a spectacular ending.
