A guest from Chiloquin, OR United States recommends this vacation rental.

Folly is a lovely old home in great condition. It is well cared for, very comfortable,up to date. Sitting on the front porch is wonderful, the view of the water, the Cay, sunsets.
The home is a few steps from grocery stores, etc. One can walk across the island in 15 minutes to French Leave beach. And you can walk to the Friday night fish fry in a few minutes.
Martha, the gracious owner is always available to help in any way.

Responsive staff.

Ken K. from St Augustine, FL US recommends this vacation rental.

The Folly house is in a great spot in Governors Harbor. We had amazing sunsets from the front porch. The house was built in 1850 and was supper cool. Everything was in good shape except one of the ceiling fans and an AC unit. The staff was all over it and fixed the problem. The location is really handy to a food and beverage stores. Best of luck to all people that choose this great property.
