Overview

Charleston Area 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) 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.

Absolutely beautiful downstairs unit of a home right off Folly's main drag and an easy walk to the beach. We appreciated having towels and sheets provided too! Spacious living areas and plenty of bathrooms. Will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! I have stayed in the house before and will continue to come back! The house is very well maintained and very comfortable! It is close to the beach and close to center street. Could not ask for a better place to stay while visiting folly. The owners are extremely accommodating and very prompt with any questions while booking. I highly recommend this house! Thank you very much for the amazing stay!

Great Location and House!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Folly Beach for the past 10 years with my kids, but this time, it was an adult weekend vacation. The house was fabulous and very clean. The location was wonderful, as it was just across the parking lot from the Pier and convenient to everything. The individuals I was with were very complimentary on the house, location, etc. The owners were great to work with! I will definitely rent this place again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing time away. You will not regret renting from them or choosing this location!!

Pristine and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property was pristine and the owner has thought of every detail to make guests comfortable. All of the furnishing are excellent quality and the layout was wonderful for cooking, dining and relaxing. The beds were super comfortable and kitchen is outfitted very nicely. There were guests in the apartment above us, but we could only hear footsteps occasionally. Our family is very picky when it comes to furnishings and cleanliness and this place exceeded our expectations.
