“Absolutely perfect and every way!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Greeted by courteous staff and a Folly Beach drink, perfect way to start our honeymoon! The beds were heavenly, we recommend getting a room with a screened porch to taken in the views and catch the breeze. Clean, decent food, the staff went above and beyond! You can not go wrong staying here! We will return.

Room Tip: we stayed in the Hemingway, which is perfect for a single or a couple (unless you are both 6 ft tall...

A very nice condominium type complex with 6-7 rooms – most with screened porches. Fair breakfast – the punch at night was fantastic and a wonderful treat. Like a hurricane but with less punch. Breakfast area was small and cramped so we ate on the porch each day – may be that is the general idea.

Thank you for sharing your review. We appreciate your feedback. Glad you enjoyed the villa and your stay and we look forward to your future visit. Usually our guests dine in waves, the early risers and the guests that sleep in. Our dining area is made up of more than the (4 table) lobby space. It is extended to the (2 table) patio area adjacent to the lobby, and the (3 table) outside area under the umbrellas. Some guest dine on their patios and others take their breakfast back to the villa where they have (2 or 3) barstools with counter space and a (4 chair) dining room table. Breakfast is served from 8 until 10 am daily.

The staff and setting could not have been more relaxing for my college room mate and I to have a short "girl's getaway"! The beautiful scenery, relaxed setting, warm welcome and short walk to Folly restaurants and the beach made it simply perfect!

Room Tip: Pack light if you are in the upstairs rooms, otherwise delightful.

We've stayed at the Water's Edge Inn many times, and each time has been awesome! This time, we stayed in a villa next door since there were three couples. The villa was beautiful, and we had plenty of space to relax. The owner and the girls at the front desk are so nice, and they're always willing to take us to the beach on the golf cart, make reservations, or answer any questions we have. We went to several restaurants during Restaurant Week, visited Middleton Plantation, went kayaking on Folly Creek, and took a Sunset Sailing cruise. Thank you to all the people at Water's Edge Inn for another fantastic trip!

Husband and I enjoyed the inn and will be back. Check in was easy, gracious, met with southern charm, loved the service and drinks/reception. Would recommend to couples and familys. Easy and short walk to beach, and nice bikes. Restaurants and shopping very close.

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We were not sure what to expect but ended up loving every minute of our stay. The girls at the front desk were extremely helpful with answering questions and recommending places to eat. We purchased the Adventure package and chose the Sunset Cruise with Randy and Jet Ski rentals on the ocean. It was so much fun and we would definitly recommend the package to anyone looking for a good time. We stayed in the Caribbean and enjoyed a full screened in porch and a great bathroom with a giant jetted tub. It was quiet and very romantic. Can't wait to go back!
