Overview

About the property

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. 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 a full bed, 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. 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.

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 Charleston Area

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

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, bike rentals and Folly 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 2014 Charleston was voted the number 1 city to visit in the USA by Conde Nast Traveler for the fourth 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!

Besties and bday weekend celebration.....

  • 5 of 5

My bestie and I, and our guys, stayed at the rathershacks for a long weekend (9/28-10/1). We had a blast and loved the accommodations. Close to the beach, center city and all the fun. The house was perfect for 4 of us and Katherine and Sam were very nice and inviting. We look forward to making this an annual event and going back next year!! It was one of those weekends where we hated to leave. Until next time....❤️

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Clean, airy, light accommodating. I loved the indoor spaces and the outdoor areas too. Walking distance to the beach and to town. I look forward to returning. I will make this my home away from home. Check out the Rather Shacks on a google search to avoid the VRBO extra charges - shame on VRBO for double dipping!
