Overview

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 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.

Very spacious, clean and quiet. Nice to be able to walk to town and the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again. We pretty much had everything we needed. There were plenty of towels to go around. Starter supplies of most household items (dish soap, detergent, toilet paper, etc.) would maybe have been nice to add dishwasher soap and coffee filters to that list, but can't think of anything else. I was very surprised at how quiet it was with being so close to town!

Lovely beach house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for our family to spend together on Folly. This cottage is so well done. The owners thought of everything to make our stay a good one. There was a pack n play as well as a booster seat provided for my granddaughter. The house is exactly as the pictures show. Very nicely furnished and well cared for. The kitchen is well stocked for any kind of cooking you do. We ate on the back deck most meals and enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch. There is a big family table inside too if preferred. The view from the top front porch is a parking lot that is not ideal but did not detract from our stay. The house is so convenient and easy walk to beach, pier, Bert's, restaurants, shops, bike rental and a cute coffee shop. A big plus that also means it can be noisy. The first night there was an unusually loud crowd at a nearby night spot that fortunately quieted down around 11. Just FYI.

Bottom line- We all agreed we would go back to this great house!

The property was clean and supplied with everything necessary for a pleasant stay. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as advertised and a truly lovely place to stay. A two or three block walk will take you to the beach, shops, restaurants, or the pier. This well lighted airy home was very clean and comfortable and the owners are very responsive to any questions or concerns.
