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 Folly Beach

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.

This property was great, it had everything we we're looking for in a vacation rental. The owners are in the process of adding some additional outdoor space to the property, so visitors to come will have even more to be excited about! We will definitely be back!

Great location. Very Clean. Very comfortable.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and comfortable. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had. The beds were very comfortable. Great location quite, but within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, beach and fishing pier.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Maybe the perfect location? :-)

Everything looks in person as it does in the the picture. The place is fresh and bright and everything is operational. Great location with walking distance to all the restaurants/bars on Folly Beach, the pier, and of course, the beach! Highly recommended.

Some others commented that noisy upstairs neighbors might detract from the experience but we got lucky with the upstair tenants during our stay.

Awesome House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This house really is perfect. It's beautiful and cozy inside, bright and airy. The beds are super comfortable! You can NOT beat this location either, half a block to the main drag and across one small lot to the beach. They've supplied everything you could need. We loved the kitchen and the ability to do home cooked meals throughout the week we were there. Laundry was a nice add! We've always stayed at the Tides but this will be our place moving forward without question. So many of the rentals seem so dingy when you check out the pics online, but this one...really is as great as it looks.

You will love your stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the bottom floor condo and it was perfect. The condo is so clean and beautifully decorated. It is close to everything. It even has a washer and dryer. We loved our stay and will come back. Thank you for a wonderful Labor Day weekend with family.
