This was our fourth trip to Folly but our first staying in this really great home. We were traveling with my son and DIL and their two sweet canine children. This house was perfect. We had our separate areas but all met up on the porch and second floor for family time. The owners made sure we had every convenience and we rediscovered the art in the home everyday. It was just a very special week for our family and I appreciate Molly and her family for sharing this magical place with us.

We can't say enough about this roomy house and awesome location. We were able to walk to shops and restaurants and the walk to the beach is not far. The house is beautifully maintained with lots of room.We loved the two porches, deck, hammocks, outside shower, open floor plan and modern design!!! We could not have found a better home for our getaway to celebrate our daughters' birthday! We loved the relaxing feeling we felt at Folly! We definitely want to return to this home and highly recommend it!!! An added bonus for this house is you are near the city of Charleston that offers so much to see and explore!!!

Great roomy house
Great roomy house
This is a beautiful home. While it may not be located on the beach or second row it is marvelous in character and views. I loved the dining room & kitchen view of the front yard tree. The screened in porches are a dream, I didn't want to leave the hammock at all. I napped in the hammock and spent several afternoons relaxing on it as it rained. My husband and I found the home a bit too large for the two of us and our dog, but that isn't the properties fault. The only downside we encountered was finding a comfortable bed. We stayed on the entry level as the master bedroom was too warm when we arrived causing us to think it'd stay warm. Also, the den and bathroom we'd use the most were located on this level. We tried one bedroom the first night and went the the next bedroom the remaining nights due to both of us having back problems and being unable to get comfortable. Otherwise, the property and house are wonderful and everything one can want. When they mention stairs they are not lying. The owners were nice and accommodating during the rental process with any questions we had as well as any that arose during our stay.

We had a great vacation! Molly has a lovely home- very modern, light and airy with great art. The kitchen was had everything we needed, although we didn't cook much and took advantage of the great restaurants in Folly Beach and Charleston. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, there were plenty of towels and soaps, accessing the home was easy, and the hammocks were relaxing! Delightful week with perfect weather! Thanks for the quick correspondence and the beautiful home!

My family dragged me to SC for a holiday. I didn't want to leave home, but they made me go. When I got to the house they rented on Folly Beach, I changed my mind. There were delicious smells around the neighborhood and lots of other friendly dogs. The house where we stayed was big and roomy and nice. My owners liked it too. They said it was neat and tidy and the kitchen was well equipped...as if I cared whether my dinner was served on china or tin. I liked the porch off the kitchen where I could lay under the hammock while my owner and I took naps with a gentle breeze blowing. The roof top deck was nice as well, although I prefer the shade to the sun like you humans. My master was crazy about the outdoor shower and used it often. Personally, I prefer bathing once a month. Would I go back. You betcha. Would I tell my pals. Ditto!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this home. It was very clean and well appointed. You couldn't ask for a better equipped kitchen. Also, there were books, games and puzzles to occupy our children on the day that it rained. We also appreciated the fact that there were two hammocks, one on each porch, so there was no squabbling over whose turn it was! The home is an easy walk to both the beach and to Center street, where the restaurants are located, so there's no need to drive. Thank you for providing such a beautiful environment in which to relax and restore!

Great House and Great Anniversary Weekend
Great House and Great Anniversary Weekend
My wife and I rented this house for our anniversary weekend and had a great time! The house is fantastic and is perfectly located on Folly Beach. We could easily walk to the main street to eat at some yummy restaurants or down to the beach and take a stroll. I wish we spent more time at the house but we were out and about in Charleston so much (which is only like a 15 minute drive). The house itself is huge and we loved the modern design. The outside shower did take a bit of getting used to (we had a lot of laughs using it in the cold mornings) but if you're not up for it, there's always a regular shower on the bottom floor. The kitchen is well stocked with every appliance or dishware you need (not that we used it since we ate out at every meal). There are a lot of stairs in the house, so just keep that in mind if you have really little ones (or really old ones), but they're definitely worth climbing especially to the top deck to enjoy the views. The next time we come back, we'll definitely rent this place again -- and will bring the rest of our family (our son and dog), who I'm sure will love it too.

The most perfect house on Folly!!!
The most perfect house on Folly!!!
We had a plan at one time to rent every appealing house on Folly....we worked through 4 houses....and then we found this one! It is perfect and we are totally in love! It is on the Folly River side...not the beach side...which we see as a real plus. It is very quiet and peaceful over here. This house is amazing... and once you learn a little about the talent of the owners, who are amazing artists, you realize what a privilege it is to stay here! It is like being given the opportunity of spending a week alone in an art gallery...a rare and wonderful opportunity!!! It is very near Center Street, as close as we have ever been...and we like that a lot! The outdoor shower on the roof is a TOTAL luxury and now we must find how to rig that up at our own home. The owners are not only very talented, but super nice!!! It has been a pleasure working with them. We have decided to give up our dream of renting every appealing house on Folly....this is now truly our home away from home. It just doesn't get better than this...we are still in shock at how perfect it is...and we still have 2 days stay left!!!!! Heaven!!!!!!! This place is heaven! When we come to Folly from now on...this is where we will stay! Our search for heaven is over!!! We can't wait to plan our next visit! Thank you so much Molly and David, for sharing this home!!! It is the most relaxed and invigorating vacation we have had, EVER. I am going to bring my art supplies next time...this house inspires me. Perhaps you could come over and give some art lessons!!!!???? I did find a box of crayons here...perhaps I will create a masterpiece before we leave!!!!! Gotta go now...gotta go take a nap on that wonderful hammock upstairs!

Excellent home and good value
Excellent home and good value
Really enjoyed the home at 216 Hudson. It's priced right for the location and has plenty of space for the family. There were six of us staying here but it felt more like two. The giant table in the great room was amazing. The kitchen was better equipped than any vacation rental I've rented previously. The location was very convenient, not right at the beach or at center street but close enough to walk. It's very quiet in the morning which was perfect for sleeping late. I will recommend this home for families or a group of couples. On a side note, the decor is quirky, contemporary and interesting. Makes for great talk pieces.

Lovely Home and Great Location
Lovely Home and Great Location
This is a great adult home that is both tidy and dog friendly. It is so nice to experience clean, contemporary design in a vacation rental. The description on VRBO is very fair and the home was well equipped and ready for us to relax. The layout works well for two couples, as the common area floor provides a buffer of privacy between the upstairs master and the downstairs bedrooms. It would probably also be good for a couple with older children (who would enjoy the downstairs den). The outdoor shower off the master is pleasant, but a bit brisk in winter--be warned! The location was perfect for easy beach access and strolling to breakfast or dinner. We also loved the quick access to Charleston. Thank you for offering your lovely home on VRBO!

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My husband David and I built the house in 2007 as a retreat. We've been renting it for awhile now and have had really great luck with people treating the house as though it were their own. We live nearby in downtown Charleston with our two children, one dog, one cat and 4 chickens. (Only the dog comes with us to the house.)
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We love the laid back vibe of Folly and the fact that it's close to town.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Typical day: We usually start the day by walking to Bert's to pick up the paper. This is the highlight of his day because at Bert's they keep a box of dog treats behind the counter to encourage furry customers. Don't even think of tying your dog up outside, bring him in to get spoiled. Then we enjoy a stiff cup of coffee on the screen porch off of the kitchen. Eventually we'll go for a bike ride or load up the wagon and head for the beach. Hopefully at some point I'll wind up in the hammock with a book and then a little nap. For dinner, I might take a drive over to Crosby's to pick up some fish to cook on the grill or if feeling lazy, we'll wander over to Center St. to one of the many restaurants. Summertime and the livin's easy...
