This 3-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is full of original Folly Beach charm. The house was built in the 1930s as a fishing and hunting camp. My husband and I bought the property in 2004 and with hard work and love, we have turned it into the wonderful home that it is now. We have added all of the modern conveniences while at the same time retaining the classic look of a Folly Beach cottage. In the ten years we have lived here, we have gotten married and had two wonderful little girls, so as you can imagine, the house is very special to us.

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 (2-5 blocks). Center Street's restaurants and shops are just two blocks away. Downtown Charleston, with its historic architecture, carriage rides, museums, and fine dinning is less than 20 minutes away as well.

The home itself is just as ideal as its location. The spacious back deck boasts a large dinning table in addition to a relaxing sitting area. The back yard is a private area that is perfect for horseshoes, croquet, or a game of kick-ball. From the backyard, take a walk down the boardwalk through the marsh to a small private island that boasts a hammock and a lovely playhouse. From the island, stroll down the dock right out to the Folly River. The dock is outfitted with a table and chairs, which makes it the perfect place for sunset drinks or a lunch-time swim. Keep a watch out for the wild-life. You'll be sure to see birds, crabs, and dolphin.

Back at the house, you'll find the interior just as special as the outside. From the front porch, step into the living room, which has the original wood floors and a lovely fire place. The living room opens into the kitchen and dinning area. The kitchen is bright 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!

Right off of the dinning area is a cozy t.v. room that comes in handy if you want the children to watch a video away from the adults or if you'd like to get away yourself for a little beach reading.

There are three lovely bedrooms in the home. The master bedroom, which has a queen bed, a flat-screen t.v. and a private bath, is on the first floor. The other two bedrooms, which share a bath, are upstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed while the other has two twin beds. All of the rooms are stylishly decorated.

Additionally, the home has such conveniences as a washer and dryer and free WiFi. On your arrival, you'll find the home stocked with a starter supply of the essentials so that you can unpack without stress.

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 ten years. We renovated this 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 have decided to move to downtown Charleston to be more centrally located to our daughters' schools. Otherwise, we'd stay right here!

Tara Hock purchased this house in 2004

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! It is charming AND incredibly spacious. My family and I enjoyed a relaxing week on Folly. This house offers everything a person needs and more. Gorgeous interior and dreamy yard that extends out onto the water. Thank you, thank you for thinking of everything!

Absolute perfect spot for our family

  • 5 of 5

This home was really great for our family (mom dad and two young boys). We also had the grandparents visit and the space and location was perfect. The pictures on VRBO look amazing and the house is just as nice in person. A quick walk to the main street, a 5 minute walk to the beach, privacy from crowds, and a private long deck out to the inter-coastal.... everything made it a really nice, comfortable, and enjoyable stay. If we come back to Folly we will be interested to rebook.

The home is lovely and comfortable. Check-in and check-out were easy. Close walk to the beach. About 3 blocks. Nice kitchen if you need to cook. We spent time in Charleston as well and it was an easy drive. Overall great experience.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this property. We absolutely love this place! You get the best of both worlds with an easy walk to the beach and a beautiful walk down the boardwalk through the marsh to an amazing dock on the Folly River. We spent our mornings and early afternoons on the beach and then loved spending the end of the day out on the dock watching the beautiful sunsets. The house is very well thought out and it really feels much bigger than it is. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and never felt crowded at all. We're looking forward to coming back next year!
