About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) close to beach and restaurants

3000 square ft. home, built in 2007, By a designer/artist couple as a retreat. Modern furniture, Hammocks on the porches (2 screened porches and 1 sun deck) original art and photographs. On the first floor of the house there are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a queen and a double. Further down the hall is the den, with a TV and foosball table, plus a large screened porch with a hammock.

The second floor is an open two story space that has a kitchen with large double doors opening onto a screened porch perfect for dining or relaxing in the hammock. There's also a loft /office above connected by a catwalk to the master bedroom on the third floor. Please be aware that the master bedroom's shower is outside on the deck. (see photos) Most people love it, but a few people aren't wild about the arrangement. Bamboo and cork floors throughout.

The house (216 East Hudson Ave), is just 4 short blocks to the beach and 2 blocks away from Center Street where you'll find funky bars,and seafood restaurants.There's also a fishing pier,surf shops and an ice cream parlor.

Two blocks away, there is a playground with tennis and basketball courts, plus a pirate play area for the little ones. Also, there is a community dock one block from the house, where you can crab, fish or watch the sunset.

Well behaved house-broken, flea treated dogs are welcomed, but there is no fenced yard, so they would need to be walked on a leash. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on the beach between the hours of 10:00am-6:00pm from May 1st to September 30th.

This house is not available for parties unless specifically approved by the owner. It is not suitable for people under 25 without parental supervision such as college groups on spring break or prom gatherings.

About Molly Boren

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.)

Molly Boren purchased this house in 2007

Why Molly Boren chose Charleston Area

We love the laid back vibe of Folly and the fact that it's close to town.

What makes this house unique

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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Molly,

I wanted to get back in touch with you and say that we really enjoyed staying at the house! It was so comfortable and we felt like we were staying in a work of art. The location of the house is so convenient. Everything was in good order when we left,no problems to report.

Thanks for everything,

So Spacious and Unique

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed my week in this unique home. I wasn't expecting a wagon and beach towels. So much I packed that was not necessary. In house advertisement, I was only expecting one bathroom. There are actually THREE. One indoor shower/ outdoor shower. Treasures everywhere within this house. I left a few of my own inside the jar on kitchen shelf! ;) A unique and enjoyable experience. Including bucket, brush, sponge and rag to wash the car with! Plus laundry detergent!! WOW!!! Thanks for loaning us the crock pot. We enjoyed the whole experience and day walks to and from the beach and restaurants....sometimes several throughout the day!! Thanks Molly!

This was my first vrbo rental and I was very happy with the experience. My family and I were celebrating my daughters graduation from CofC and this was a perfect escape from the city but close enough to downtown when we needed to be there. I loved this modern, spacious house! There was plenty of room for everyone to be together and plenty of places to escape for quiet alone time. The house was in walking distance to everything that Folly beach has to offer. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely rent this house again!

Thanks to Molly for a very pleasant experience :)

Christmas week at Folly Beach was spectacular! We all loved the house and the art was an unexpected treat. The accomodations were comfortable and convenient - many hours were spent on the porches and hammocks. A well appointed kitchen and large dining table made lots of room to enjoy meals and games. A relaxing walk to the beach and fun stops at colorful Berts as well as Crosby's seafood closeby rounded out our wonderful stay. Molly was so helpful and easy to work with. Thanks for sharing your home; we would love to stay again.

Always refreshing!!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at this house when vacationing at Folly. The entire family loves this house with the proximity to the beach, Bert's and restaurants. The peaceful clutter free home allows for easy naps, game time, music in the background while reading or working a puzzle. The large (original) artwork only adds to the experience. It is so serene. The outside shower is great with the rooftop sun deck. The homes layout, the screened porches and large windows - it's always so hard to leave when the time comes. Getting to bring our dog makes it even better! We will be back soon.
