Dianne Ray purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Dianne Ray chose Charleston Area

The new owner of this home has been blessed with the opportunity to travel and enjoy various parts of the world however she didn't know what she was getting into when she came to the Edge of America. Now her wandering ways are behind her as she has found a space that nourishes her spirit and inspires her soul. Looking forward to making Folly home in the future, she purchased this property in hopes of settling here permanently in the next few years. Until then she hopes to visit as much as possible and is thrilled to be able to offer her little slice of paradise to others, that they too will feel inspired and rejuvenated.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is in a great location. The beach access is just a skip away. The unit itself is newly updated though still holds it's rustic charm with antique wood floors, bead board walls and various stain glass windows. It rest high on a dune, so it feels private and slightly removed from the activity below. Great sun porch and outdoor sundeck offers the additional space guests need to find a little "me" time. Great parking out front and if needed we can offer additional parking in the back on the East Cooper side.....say if you are able to bring a boat or have a camper, we have parking for that:)

Had a lot of character. Good location to everything. Had the basics. Many shortcomings.

  • 2 of 5

There was a very strong, unpleasant, musty odor even though the place was fairly clean. Extension cords to the few outlets gave concern for electrical safety. Poor lighting w/some lamps not working @ all. New screen doors front & back were poorly constructed so there were gaps in the frames where mosquitoes got in & feasted on us. There were window air conditioners throughout that were very noisy but necessary because none of the windows opened or had screens. This also made it impossible to air the place out. The steps from the street to the property were in significant decay & inadequate lighting made coming in from the car to the house a bit treacherous especially after dark.

Owner's Response: It's always disappointing when we hear a guest was not satisfied with their accommodations. We make every effort to accurately describe our homes, price them accordingly and keep them up to date and in working order. This rental does not have central heating and air and is cooled by window units in every room. Having a unit in every room allows each guest to set their room at a temperature that is comfortable for them. While window units create white noise, we do not feel the units are loud in a way that is intrusive and we have never had any negative feedback on them. The windows in this unit are older and we do have small, adjustable screens that can be placed in them. The screens are stored in a closet in the rental during hot July summer months, since the temperature and humidity outside can be uncomfortable. We have never known guests to want to open the home and turn off air conditioning during this time period and that is not something we encourage. Summer months are not only very warm, but we have lots of short, pop up thunder storms that could possibly cause damage if windows are left open and unattended. We did just have screen doors custom installed and were very pleased with the installation. The screen doors will be nice to have once temperatures cool a bit. Electrical in the home is inspected regularly, due to placement of some items, we have had to use short extension cords. There are ceiling fans with lights in every room along with at least two lamps in each room.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for my husband and me with plenty of room when our kids came for the last couple of days. Would be awesome if there was more than one bathroom but we made it work...Even when we all had to get ready for family pictures on the beach. Absolutely adorable and convenient to the beach. Would definitely stay again!! Dianne Ray is the easiest person to work with as well.

Cozy Place

  • 4 of 5

We (myself, wife and daughter) liked this cozy place. We were able to be together all week. My wife worked during the day from the front room table looking out to the street. There is public beach access path across the street. This made many people park in front of the house for Memorial Day, so bringing extra cars is not advisable. Internet was 90 MB down, 10 MB up, so for all our devices and wife's work was awesome! Had a great week.

Owner's Response: So glad your wife enjoyed the front sun room! It is a lovely little space, allowing you to feel as if you're outdoors. The sun room is where the owner, an artist, is inspired to create her unique works, which you will find displayed throughout the bungalow. The wifi is exceptionally fast, which is a bonus when you want to stream movies or have multiple people on their devices. There is now a well marked, public beach access path, right across the street...making getting to the beach a little more convenient. Weekend and holiday parking can get a bit hectic here on the beach during the peak hours of the day...10-4. There's typically adequate parking out front, however all street parking is owned by the city of Folly Beach and we can not reserve or block of spaces. So glad this rental worked for your family!
