Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

**During the summer we rent by the week from Friday to Friday. If interested, please check the calendar for availability and the rate details.**

*Also check out our 3-bedroom unit (418203)

This 2-bedroom, 3-bath lower-level unit of a two-story house combines Folly Beach charm with a modern sensibility. The house was built in the 1930s, but has recently been completely renovated to add all of the modern conveniences and a contemporary decor.

The home is ideally located for visitors who want to walk to all of the local attractions. The beach, the pier, and BLU, the only ocean front restaurant and bar in the Charleston area, are within easy walking distance (2 blocks). Center Street's restaurants and shops are just a block away. Downtown Charleston, with its historic architecture, carriage rides, museums, and fine dinning is less than 15 minutes away as well.

The home itself is just as ideal as its location. Visitors can lounge on one of two wonderful porches. The shady front porch runs the length of the house and gets a fabulous beach breeze. It is a perfect spot to catch up on your beach reading or to watch the world go by; you can even catch a glimpse of the ocean. The back porch is covered and is outfitted with a table and chairs. It is a perfect spot to have lunch or to play a game after a day in the sun.

From the front porch, step into the main open living area which includes the living room, dinning room, and kitchen. The home's hardwood floors, modern decor, architectural details, and eight large windows makes this space a bright, inviting family area.

There are two lovely bedrooms in the home. The front queen bedroom has a fun decor which combines classic and modern touches. The second queen bedroom is also tastefully decorated with both classic and modern touches. These two rooms share a stylish bathroom that boasts an extra-large stand-up shower.

The kitchen is bright, open, and includes gorgeous granite counter-tops and all of the amenities. The cooks in your party will appreciate the attention to detail and will be able to whip up a fantastic dinning experience with ease. Every gadget and accessory has been provided, so don't worry about bringing your micro-zester from home!

Additionally, the home has such conveniences as a washer and dryer and free WiFi. On your arrival, you'll find a welcome basket that will ease the unpacking process.

We have a no-smoking and a no-pet policy. We rent by the week in the summer. This is a two-story house with two units, one upstairs and one downstairs.

Brad and I have been living on Folly Beach for nine years. We gutted and renovated our own home and enjoyed the process so much that we have renovated several other properties. Brad does all of the work himself and his attention to detail really shows. We live right around the corner from our rental property, so if you need anything, just let us know.

Tara Hock purchased this house in 2010

This home is so close to everything! The beach, the pier, and Center Street are all within easy walking distance. The interior of the home is bright, sunny, and decorated with comfort in mind. Additionally, we take care of our properties ourselves rather than having a realty company handle the bookings, maintenance, and cleaning. We personally inspect our properties weekly to make sure that our guests have the best experience possible.

EXCELLENT RENTAL AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing vacation and couldn't have enjoyed this property more. It was centrally located to the beach and "downtown". We'd never been to Folly before but plan to return again and make this our annual family vacation. Kudos to Tara and her husband for doing such an excellent job on the renovation and running a great rental property!

WONDERFUL, CLEAN, NEW, FAB SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 came and truly loved our stay. We were concerned that Folly - being the (wonderfully) low-key spot that it is - might not have a first-class, remodeled option. Wrong, indeed! This spot was precisely all of that. You can see from the pictures that it is well-appointed. We even hosted a brunch for 7, and were able to cook everything we wanted with the kitchen items supplied. The location can not be beat - walk to everything, but be just far enough that it's not loud at night. Thank you for a glorious stay. We'll be back!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was by far the nicest, cleanest, all new everything, you really couldn't tell anyone had ever stayed there before. Located around the corner from the Main Street and easy walk to the beach less than a block. The only negative was the homes around it weren't very nice, run down and not taken care of. There was really no ocean view from the downstairs unit. I was disappointed that the Main Street didn't have more to offer, it was mainly bars and bar restaurants, and souvenir shops. The only grocery store offered a fair variety but not for a full on grocery trip. This little town could be so cute if it had a bakery, coffee shops, book stores or just a nice beach shop.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the positive comments about our rental home. We work very hard to keep our residences in the best condition for our guests. We are sorry that this guest did not like the atmosphere of Folly Beach. Most visitors love the "Folly Vibe" and appreciate its quirkiness. There are houses on Folly Beach that have not been renovated recently, but our neighbor on one side is a super-cute Bed and Breakfast, and the neighbor on the other side is in the process of renovating his home, so our surrounding area is quite nice. I have to agree with this guest about a bakery; we would love to have one!!!

What a great place! Our family loved the close proximity to everything. We rarely used our car! The property is lovely and spacious, and we especially enjoyed the front porch for people watching. Our teen daughters were able to navigate the area on their own, as well as walk to the pier and town area a block away. The house has everything you could ask for, and is so well equipped and maintained. We agreed as a family that we wil come to stay again next year...there isnt anything better for a small family at Folly!

PERFECT GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
This home was absolutely amazing. The house itself was beautifully decorated and spacious enough to comfortably suit 6 adults! The photos on the listing do not do this house justice! The area was perfectly located between the beach and Center St (nightlife, restaurants, and shops), yet not too busy or loud! Also, it was wonderful only being 15-20 min from Downtown Charelston! Tara was a wonderful host and accommodated our party on very short notice! I definitely plan on using this rental for any future trips to the Charleston area!!

IDEAL VACATION SPOT - CLEAN AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Folly Beach. The unit is immaculate! It is very clean, spacious, and thoughtfully decorated. The beds are super comfortable with nice linens. I didn't notice when I booked that both bathrooms have showers only. At first, I was concerned since my young children take nightly baths, however, it worked out great and ended up being less messy than taking a sandy bath! The location is ideal - three houses from the main strip of restaurants/shops and a short walk to the beach and pier (two blocks). We were even able to enjoy a day in Charleston since it's a short drive away. The owner, Tara, is great and very responsive to questions. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Restaurant Recommendations: Rita's (lunch and dinner) and Lost Dog Cafe (breakfast)

Make time to bike the end of the island to see the preserved light house. It is really cool! For people with children, there is a great playground about 4 blocks from the house. It has beach themed equipment (lighthouse and boat) that was a hit with my son.
