The Gypsy Tide House is a great spot to relax right by the water. Plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the view. The staff was very responsive and addressed all issue promptly.
We had a great time at the beach! I love the oceanfront location. The screen porch is wonderful for socializing no matter the weather, but furnitures need to be updated. A few minor repairs needed-On upstair bedrooms: curtain does not open, water does not drain in the shower, door does not lock, etc.. Kitchen cookwares need to be updated.
I will start by mentioning the stay.
The stay was great. We really enjoyed the house. Very spacious and we had what we needed. One thing I would fix is the ceiling has mold growing on it off the family room by the sliding doors. The kitchen cabinets are peeling. And the sinks/tubs didn't train well. Would fill up. A little drano would work wonders. That is just words to improve. But, we really enjoyed being right on the beach. And the house really is great!
When I called the 8 days before we wanted to stay I initially spoke with Tony. He was great to talk with & work with. The next day when I called to book I got Summer and she was snippy right off the bat. She was argumentative. Was questioning what Tony & I had discussed and agreed to, made me feel like I was lying or making it up. I was looking to book one of your larger properties for 3 days for almost $5,000 and I was catching major attitude. If we didn't want that house and we weren't trying to do it last minute, I would have not tolerated it and I certainly would not have rented that house or one from your rental company. After I told her what Tony & I had discussed she told me I was "A lot" and "Extra". First off, I have never been called that in my life. Secondly, I am calling to rent a property from you all for quite a bit of money. I am a Broker/Realtor, in the customer service business myself. What kind of customer service is that? I was talked to terribly, I was shocked. As I mentioned, it was all I could do to bite my tongue after the way she was talking to me. But, I thought of our families, this house, how we all wanted to go to the beach, so I didn't say anything disrespectful back. I told her to talk to Tony to verify what we had talked about. Once she did and called me back she changed her tune, tried to be nice. Because she knew at that point everything I was saying was the truth. I think your seller should know that if this is the way Summer talks to potential renters and they don't know it, you could potentially be losing a lot of business. Definitely bad for your rental company, but especially the owner. I was quite bothered and offended by her treatment towards me.
We had a great visit. This is the second time we have rented Gypsy Tide for a family reunion and all of us (ten people) think this house is wonderful Lots of room for all of us and of course, right on the beach. All our grandchildren were there and loved it too. The house is very well appointed and Folly Beach Rental provide many amenities that other rental companies do not include - such as trash bags, soaps, paper towels and even kleenex These little things make a big difference when packing for a week stay!!! We did have some minor problems with the house and called Beth at Folly Beach Rental and she was quick to do what needed to be done so that we could enjoy our stay! The owner is coming this week and I am hopeful they will be able to fix some of these minor problems - and maybe sharpen some of the knives in the kitchen!!! We only do this once every two years with all of the children and it is so nice that we KNOW this house and do not need to do a big search every time. Makes all of us happy!!
July 2020 was the third consecutive summer we've booked time here, and the experience was - once again - terrific. Given the pandemic, we called the staff prior to arriving to discuss measures being taken to clean the property between guests. Our call was openly welcomed, our questions patiently answered, and our concerns significantly eased with the new protocols Follytime had implemented to protect its guests.
The week itself? Spectacular. Three generations of family enjoyed sun-filled days, plenty of room on the beaches, and warm summer evenings on the screened-in porch listening to the surf. We've already booked a fourth stay for Summer 2021.
Gypsy Tide was a pleasure as always for our annual family beach week. It was immaculately clean and so comfortable. We are already looking forward to next year!!
Nice house and location. Garage and fridge smelled of rotten fish or animal, and one of the bedspreads has a massive blood-like stain on it when we checked in. Dishes had food crust on it- dishwasher not very effective so we had to hand wash most things. 10am check out was pretty early considering we had a 4pm check in already and paid over a grand per night. The 10am checkout time also didn’t leave us enough time to clean thoroughly, especially for our sized group. Great location and had a great weekend otherwise.
Great house and great location right on the beach!
We rented Gypsy Tide on Folly Beach on the weekend of Dec 19-22, 2019. When we walked into the main living room, we gasped at the absolutely beautiful house and at the views of the ocean. Each room was delightfully decorated in upscale linens and room décor. The kitchen had just about everything one would need (We cooked Christmas dinner for 14 people!), including three different ways to make our coffee, which they provided. The bathrooms were well-appointed. The elevator helped us with our loading and unloading. I can't imagine what else we would have needed for our stay.
I can't finish this review without speaking to how accommodating the staff was at Folly Beach Rentals. I was, admittedly, quick to call them with the silliest of questions. All of my questions were answered very kindly, very patiently and always with, "call us back if you have any more questions!" I highly recommend Gypsy Tide Beach House for a perfect get-away vacation.
We had a fabulous stay.
Well stocked in bathrooms and kitchen.
The house was wonderful—clean, easy check in, great location, perfect for a large group. The communication with the Follytime team was easy and very quick. The house was well-stocked. We had a wonderful time! We would happily stay in this house again!
Nice to have local management address issues immediately brought about by hurricane. Accommodating easy to work with management team.
Beautiful home with gorgeous view! This home was perfect for six fraternity brothers and wives who attended college in the 70s. The home lacks nothing for a long visit. The kitchen was amazing and fully stocked and beds were comfy. We enjoyed our reunion during a unique Harvest
Moon at GypsyTide.
We LOVED our stay at Gypsy Tide. The house is spacious, stylish, comfortable, clean, super close to the sunset end of the island and we appreciated the more private location, away from Center Street.
Really enjoyed the tea kettle, griddle, really well-stocked kitchen including plenty of spices, dish soap, trash bags, etc. Enjoyed the full length mirrors which are often scare in rentals. The elevator was so convenient, all towels were well stocked- including bath and beach towels, loved the bonus beach items, games, laundry appliances, black out blinds, decor, TVs, gorgeous light fixtures, etc.
We felt the check-in and check-out processes were very smooth and stress-free. My communication with Tommy was top-notch & he was very polite, professional & easy to talk to.
The only suggestions we have would be to update the outside of the home a bit, to add a full length mirror to the bunk room, and of course a pool/hot tub would always be amazing!
We plan on booking again next year- loved everything about Gypsy Tide & rental services! Thank you so very much.
Beautiful house and location for family beach week. Well stocked kitchen (the only thing that could improve it would be a second refrigerator) and plenty of amenities throughout the property. Large bedrooms and plenty of space for everyone. Very clean and ready to go at check-in. This is our second summer at Gypsy Tide and we will be back!
I cannot think of anything that would make it better! We had a fabulous time. Loved the house, location, the beach, the town, all of it! Someone does need to clean out the games in cabinet below TV in family room. It’s a mess. We brought our own games so we didn’t try to use those in the cabinet. We left a puzzle that we had put together. We put it in cabinet close to sliding door. The only other complaint was that the pullout bed in bunk room was not good to sleep on so they used the sleep mattress on the floor.
My family loved it enough, they were trying to see when we could come back. I told them I had to “reload” the finance column. Thank you for providing such an enjoyable place to stay. We will be back someday.
Wonderful week at folly. Perfect location for not too crowded beach chillin.
A terrific location for a multi-generational family beach vacation...our children, their spouses, and their children all shared a wonderful week together in Gypsy Tide. Enough room so that everyone had the space they needed. Only steps away from a beach that was never overcrowded. Particularly love the large screened-in porch that allowed for nightcaps while listening to the ocean and feeling the breeze...but without the fear of insects. This was our second booking at GT, and we're already booked for Summer 2020.
This is a great home in a great location!!! Our extended family spent a long Holiday weekend at the house and it couldn't have been better. There was plenty of room for everyone and the kids even had their own room (which pleased us AND them) with their own TV. The screened porch was our favorite spot, I think.
We did cook nearly every day and the kitchen was well stocked. The representatives were very responsive with any question we had.
One of the best places we have stayed !! Can't wait to come back and make more memories.
We are a group of 8 ladies who have been friends for over 40 years. This is our second year at Gypsy Tide and we have already booked for 2020. This house is perfect. The most well-stocked kitchen I seen in a rental home. We spend a lot of time on the wonderful screened porch. We vacation together every year and this is the best house we've stayed in.
It was an amazing home. It was spacious, with the amount of bathrooms for 9 women to get ready! The view was breathtaking and the screened in porch was an extra positive surprise. We had a wonderful time and thank you for allowing us to stay at this beautiful home. We could not get the wifi or internet access to work but that would be the only issue we had the entire time.
Gypsy Tide is an awesome house for a large group and the location is perfect for Folly Beach. It was nice to have all the beach accessories and toys not mentioned in the property description. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need and the screened in porch is the place to be day and night. Thanks for prompt response to our extra needs and one small repair during our stay.
The beach front location is great. The screened-in porch is the best thing about the house. Though, we could not locate any switch for fans/lights; so, for example, when someone wanted to sit on porch to read, could not do so. The bedrooms are spacious, but the bed linens could be better quality. Our group was 8, so seating ok but think a couple more chairs in living room would be more comfortable. We did no cooking, but the kitchen appeared to be well equipped. We appreciated the ice maker! We had just one car; but availability of 4 parking spaces is a bonus.
This was a well appointed gorgeous house! The staff were very attentive to all of our needs. I would definitely return to the house and Folly Time rentals!
Beautiful home! We all want to go back!!
Best beach front house ever! Enough said
What a fabulously maintained property! The only suggestion would be to have more dish towels on hand and black wash cloths.
We ate in every night and had the perfect amount of kitchen items. The appliances are first class.
Is there a place you could put more towel rods? We made do with hanging them on doorknobs upstairs.
All 12 women plan to return in two years. Thank you!
The Company that runs this house was over the top customer service. Carla called every day to see if we needed ANYTHING. This house was absolutely stunning. It was clean, organized and stocked to the nines. 9 people slept here very comfortably so you can definitely add more and be safe. We had our wedding here and the reception inside had more than enough room for dancing, eating, mingling. We want to return for family and friend reunions. So beautiful
We stayed in Gypsy Tide for a week for our son's wedding in Charleston! I can't tell you how pleased we were, from the minute we starting planning our vacation Tom and others had been nothing but responsive, pleasant, and helpful! The house was beautifully decorated, well stocked with kitchen items, towels, parking, beach toys... and the setting was amazing. The oceanside screened in porch was wonderful too. We will definitely work with Follytime again and hope to be back at Gypsy Tide soon. We can't thank you enough!
