Overview

Charleston Area 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. 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.

We also 5 other cottages to pick from, Go to HomeAway.com and check them out:

What makes this cottage unique

The BeachShack Is Perfect for Two and a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The BeachShack is only 1 block from the beach where one can walk for miles at low tide. It is only 2 blocks from Burts, fabulous convenience store with many good choices of wine and beer as well as basic food if one needs something. Center Street is just another block that has beachy restaurants and bars. The BeachShack is tastefully decorated and very comfortable for my adult daughter and me in the 2 bedroom plus open space kitchen/dining/living room area. Internet works well and we brought a speaker to attach to our computer for a music system. The kitchen has basic supplies, a few more pots and a garlic press would even make things better. We comfortably entertained my other daughter and her boyfriend there--there are enough plates and wine glasses for a party of four. This is a perfect place for two people. Cathy, the owner, welcomed us, and answered any questions. The beds and pillows are comfy. The whole beach house was spotless when we arrived.

Beautiful and full of Beach Fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Rathershacks was a wonderful experience! We met up with friends for an annual vacation and enjoyed hanging out at the house during the super storm. Going to Folly beach was convenient and relaxing. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a beach vacation!

BeachShack

Everything was perfect! Close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants and pier. The BeachShack was everything as detailed. No surprises. Owners are nearby if needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Four nights on Folly

  • 5 of 5

My daughter lives in Charleston, S.C. We were looking for a "get away" while I visited last month.

We found the perfect place just off of Folly Beach. Katherine met us upon arrival and acquainted us with

the property. Inside and out. It was perfect. We had every convenience we needed and it was darling. We could

not want for anything cleaner. It was spotless. The only slight inconvenience was the 10AM checkout. Manageable,

but tight.

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!!

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!
