About the property

**We require a five-night stay when booking further than 21 days out during the off seasons (winter, spring, fall). We accept a three-night stay within 21 days of the check-in date.

**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) and our 3-bedroom home (573323)

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.

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 2010

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 vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a week. We loved the house! It is a perfect location that allows you to walk to the beach, the restaurants, and pretty much anywhere on Folly. We had a great stay!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for just over a week in this gem. It was perfect. Five minute walk to beach, five minute walk to shopping and restaurants. The home was clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and strangers alike!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several places in FB and this is the best one yet! Perfect for 2 couples. GREAT location, so clean and perfect inside, newly renovated and well taken care of. Steps to anything you want to do or see on Folly beach. We even had a blast sitting on the porch people watching and hanging out. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks Tara for sharing your beautiful home with us!!

Beautiful home with best of both worlds! Easy walkable beach access and a short drive to Charleston

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning! The host was helpful and extremely accommodating. It has a perfect layout to spend time with family and friends, and is one of the cleanest rentals I have ever stayed at! The location couldn't be more perfect. It is an easy walk to all of the shops and restaurants Folly Beach has to offer. I highly recommend this place if you want to mix up your stay and spend time at the beach as well as in Charleston.

Great Home Near Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying here last March. The house was exactly as pictured- beautifully updated and decorated inside. There are many restaurants within walking distance, and we visited (& enjoyed) several of them. The owners were responsive and friendly. We would definitely stay here again!
