Folly Beach House Rental Photos and Description

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

**Also check out our two-bedroom unit (463250).

This 3-bedroom, 2-bath upper-level unit is full of original Folly Beach charm. The house was built in the 1930s, but has recently been completely renovated to add all of the modern conveniences while at the same time restoring the classic look of a Folly Beach cottage to each unit.

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, a sunny spot outfitted with a table and chairs, is a perfect spot to soak up some sun, have lunch, or watch the sunset.

From the front porch, step into the main living area which includes the living room and dinning room. The home's hardwood floors, original wood paneling, architectural details, and eight large windows give this space a bright, classic beach cottage look.

There are three lovely bedrooms in the home. The king bedroom has a crisp, classic decor and is equipped with a flat screen TV. The adjacent bedroom has two twin beds and a decor that is fun and festive. These two rooms share a stylish bathroom that boasts a claw-foot tub. The queen bedroom has its own private bath and french doors opening onto the back porch.

The kitchen is bright, spacious, 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.

About Tara Hock

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 2011

Why Tara Hock chose Charleston Area

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.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed for a week and it was spacious, clean and had a large kitchen, which was a must for all the cooking and eating. Very convenient to the beach and Center St. restaurants and stores, and the 2 parking spaces in the back made it easy to park/unload luggage. We would love to stay there in the future!

Great location and VERY WELL MAINTAINED!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best maintained properties we have ever stayed at! Very clean! The kitchen had everything we needed. We usually eat out a few times during our stay, but enjoyed being at "home" after a long day at the beach that on our last night we went to Crosbys and cooked the best seafood we had all week! We have two littles (20months and 3years old), so a short walk beach was important-and it was as promised. We didn't drive the car all week (except to Crosbys!) Easy access to beach/pier. I do recommend walking one more block left from the Pier, much less crowded from rental umbrellas. The washer/dryer in the unit was VERY NICE to have since we have littles. The beds were comfortable and sheets/comforters well maintained and clean. Highly recommend this rental!

The property is lovely and is on the upper floor of a upper level/lower level condo.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year that we have rented this same unit. It is beautifully kept and is convenient to absolutely everything on Folly Beach. We walk to all the restaurants, the convenience store, the beach and ice cream!! Folly Beach is a 20 minute drive to Downtown Charleston. It's the best of all worlds. I am a past Charleston resident, so I know the area well and it is a perfect place if you want to be where you can do it all.

Best House on Folly!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this lovely house. Not only is it conveniently located to everything, but it is decorated beautifully and has everything you'll need to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. An ocean view from the upstairs porch, a quick walk to the beach and Folly Island pier, only a block to all of the restaurants and stores. We never have to move our car after we arrive for the week. The two parking spaces are very convenient and an added bonus. We highly recommend this house!! and we will be back!!!

Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family all traveled to Folly Beach for my niece's wedding in the Charleston area. I rented this unit for myself and my parents, who are in their mid-70's, and my children who are in their mid-twenties to early thirties. We all enjoyed the area very much and found the unit to be clean, convenient and well-equipped. Many of the units I looked at before this one were very outdated, but this one was obviously recently redone, in a crisp farmhouse-meets-beach house style.

We were just steps away from restaurants, the pier, the beach, and the nightlife, which my kids appreciated. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. I am pretty picky about a good mattress and quality sheets, and evidently so is Tara, because the beds were fantastic. Seating in the living and dining areas is ample and comfortable. The bathrooms were modern, clean, and had plenty of warm water. There is sufficient dresser and closet space, though if you prefer to hang all your clothes you may need to bring some extra hangers.

From my perspective this unit was nearly perfect, though I will point out that there were a lot of stairs, which were difficult for my parents. I wish we could have rented the first floor but there were 7 of us and so we needed the extra room the upstairs unit offered. Also, getting in and out of the clawfoot tub to shower, with nothing to hold on to, was difficult for them, so they just used the shower in the small bath instead. Other than that, the unit was just about perfect.

We had a great stay and are talking about coming back next year.
