THE RATHERSHACKS THIS ONE IS CALLED THE BEACHSHACK

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 BR 1.5 BATH

We named it the RATHERSHACK because you'd rather be here than anyplace else in the world. We are 'second row' from the beach - which means a 45 second walk for you slow pokes, or 30 seconds for the average beach bum. The cottage we are advertising and scheduling here is the 2 BR this one is called the BeachShack. Lots of charm and beach feel decor at no extra charge as this unit has all new beach-style furnishings, flooring, paint, new roof, and new air conditioning installed summer 2012. Both have open floor plans for casual gatherings after your day at the beach. This Unit has a fully stocked kitchen utensils etc with microwave and dishwasher. The 2 BR features a large master with queen leather bed and its own half bath. The second bed has 2 twins with new pillow top thick mattresses, a fully stocked board game shelf, and plenty of changing room. Super clean no allergens pet dander etc as we do not allow pets. Units have cable TV, WIFI and XBox 360 for rainy days. Off Street parking for 2 vehicles included. . Gas grill on site available for you grill masters out there. We also have bikes for you to roam this 6 mile long TOTALLY FLAT island. I repeat TOTALLY FLAT... you don't have to be hopped up on steroids and carry a Tour de France jersey to bike around here. Just hop on and pedal your hangover away then jump in the soothing Atlantic Ocean. Riding bikes is one of our favorite things to do around around here, and look at all the sugar shacks, moderate homes, and homemade fishing piers plopped right next to the occasional McMansion. Architectural variety on every block. Folly Beach makes no judgment on who you are or where you come from...just bring your flip flops and come as you are.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

We met in the cold Granite State of New Hampshire, fell in love, sold our houses, threw away the snowshovels, and bought us a perfect shack in paradise. After we fixed her up... you now have the Rathershack in all its glory waiting for you to come and add the next chapter. We thank you in advance for helping us live our dream. We live on site so feel free to stop in for a cold one or advice on where to go hide out, or step out and kick up your dancin shoes. The sign over our door says PARTYville, but more often than not we flip it over so it reads NAPville. Sometimes one leads to the other. You know the drill........

KATHERINE GRIMES purchased this cottage in 2012

We bought this place to live the simple life in a beach town, and have family and friends visit. Plus, wouldn't you rather deal with an owner who lives on site and is totally psyched to be here and have YOU as our guest.

All bars on Folly Beach are within walking distance. Plus the house was pink...and we decided to keep the color.

Our Family (4) had an amazing time at the Rathershack, that is a block walk from the beach a only a few blocks from EVERYTHING in Folly Beach (restaurants, shops, pier, coffee shops, etc.). Kat has thought of everything to make our stay pleasant and memorable... from loaning her 4 bikes to her tenants, to what sites were must sees (best tip is watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee down at the lighthouse beach... just a short bike ride away!)
Folly is close to all the sites in Charleston, from plantations to historical forts to amazing restaurants to back river kayak trips with the dolphins). It was great coming home each night to a clean, perfectly accented home with all the amentities you need... The two bedroom suite we were in has everything, including a crab boil pot!!! Seriously, Kat has thought of everything and while she's always available, she's never intrusive. It truly felt like we were "home"! Thanks for an amazing experience and we will return to Rathershack in the future!

The Rathershack was the Perfect Get~A~Way for us!

The location of this property was perfect - a block to the beach. A few blocks to the center of Folly with plenty of Restaurants / Bars whatever your looking for. We really enjoyed the Bicycles on property to use when we want to, included in the rental. Morris Island - Truly a great place, round trip by bike is 6 miles. Also having the beach chairs and umbrella on property to use is another money saver. Katherine was very accommodating if you need anything or questions of the area you may have. the Rathershack is a nicely decorated and fully equip property. We would definitely choose the Rathershack when we return to Folly Beach. Tami & Larry - Buffalo, NY area

My husband and I and our 2 children (boy 16 and girl 14) loved the Rathershack. Everything in the home was updated and beachy. It was impeccably clean. We loved that we could walk to Center Street and the restaurants, shops and pier. Katherine and Sam could not have been nicer. Kat was always available but never intrusive. She gave us at ideas of things to do while we were in Folly.We will definitely stay there again when we go Folly.
Owner's Response: We love our guest!! It brings a smile to our face knowing that We helped make another guest great memories for Folly Beach and the RatherShacks. xoxoxox

Come back anytime.

We have stayed at various Folly Beach houses during the past 10 years. Our stay at the Sandshack was easily the most up-to-date, the cleanest, and the coolest (great air conditioning). Easy walk to the beach, short walk to restaurants. Katherine (owner) was especially helpful. Having the fenced in yard with table/chairs made for a nice private place to hang out. A great place to stay for a couple or small family.
Owner's Response: WE love the Ice Cold Air too. WE thought your family was one of the most precious. I am so glad you had a great time, sometimes it can be more challenging with 3 babies. But, You guys pulled it off. We sincerely do hope that the RatherShack is a great memory for your family. Katherine and Sam

We at the Rathershacks love the laid back feeling that Folly Beach has to offer. There are 15 bars/restaurants, Berts 24-hour grocery store (beer and eggs at 3am!), paddle boarding, kayak, boat rentals, and Foll Beach Pier all within walking distance. You will be just 15 minutes from beautiful historic downtown Charleston with all of its southern charm, culture, colleges, and a lifetime's worth of award winning bars and restaurants. In 2012 Charleston was voted the number 1 city to visit in the USA by Conde Nast Traveler for the second year in a row. Come see why. In addition you can visit the historic plantations and battle grounds of the Lowcountry to get a feel for Charleston in the 1800's. This history stuff is nice but we know you would really rather be back at the Rathershacks on Folly Beach!
