THE RATHERSHACKS THIS ONE IS CALLED THE BEACHSHACK

Folly Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 BR 1.5 Bath CUTE CUTE CUTE

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 1.5 bath, 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. All cottages 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 a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds, plenty of changing room. Super clean no allergens pet dander etc as we do not allow pets. Units have cable TV and WIFI. Off Street parking for 1 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:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About KATHERINE GRIMES

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

Why KATHERINE GRIMES chose Folly Beach

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my 2 college age daughters had a wonderful time at the Beach Shack!! We did not need to ask for anything cause Katherine and Sam have thought of everything you need and put it at your fingertips to use. We loved riding the bikes provided around town and the best place to eat on their recommendation was the surf bar. The girls asked to go back a 2nd time it was so good. We hope to have time to do another vacation at Folly Beach and would think of no were else to stay but the Rathershacks!! Thank you again for helping make a very memorable beach vacation!!

I used to live on Folly so I know the great bohemian beach hideaway it can be. These rentals are the perfect distance of right next to the beach and a short walk from center street where you can grab a beer, a bite to eat and good people watching. Kat and Sam could not have been nicer, they stopped by gave us all a warm welcome and let us be. The rental is clean with all of the normal amenities you would expect. If you go make sure to eat breakfast at the lost dog and a burger at Rita's. You won't regret this trip. The pictures are spot on how the place looks.

beach shack review

  • 5 of 5
I took my Mom to the Beach Shack to celebrate her 75th birthday! We loved our trip! The house is decorated so cute and it is very clean. It is an excellent location, close to the beach and shops. I enjoyed the bikes, umbrella, towels and beach chairs! Sam and Kat were wonderful, we are looking forward to returning real soon!

Outstanding value, location, and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

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!
