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

Jolly in Folly

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our recent trip to Folly Beach and our stay at the BeachShack! We were definitely jolly in Folly! Sam & Katt are the best hosts you could ask for while being away from home. From the moment we arrived, they were there to greet us, walk us through our new home for the week, make recommendations, and answer any questions we had about the area. Their accommodating attitude made our stay easy breezy. We loved how homey and comfortable the BeachShack was and how it was equipped with everything we could have needed during our stay from beach towels to kitchen utensils to a hair dryer and board games; this place had it all! We were thrilled with our vacation to Folly Beach and the many memories that were made while staying at the BeachShack. Thank you Sam & Katt!

Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This property is very close to beach access. They had beach chairs available for use. It's an easy walk to a wide variety of area restaurants. Everything was very nice and clean. It's a short drive to the Charleston area. It made for a great vacation.

Cute & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite vacation rentals ever. Very clean,comfortable and cute. Furniture in living room area was more comfortable than in any rental we have stayed in.

Location was perfect. Really is less than a minute to walk to beach.

Lovely little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our family of four. Very clean, well equipped, and a super quick walk to the beach. The owners are welcoming and helpful and it's nice knowing they're close should anything come up. We enjoyed the front patio area for our daily after-the-beach drinks. We even cooked out on the grill one night. We will be back!!! Thank you Katt & Sam for sharing your Folly home!

P.S. The Sunday Gospel Brunch at Hall's Chophouse in Charleston is awesome. Make reservations well in advance, though. And SUP Safaris in Folly is a fun family outing!

Wonderful house for a beach vacation with a toddler

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Shack is a wonderful place for family beach vacation. The house is one short block from the beach and only a few walkable blocks from the downtown shops and restaurants. The home is clean, light, and nicely-decorated with all the amenities that you need to cook or grill and enjoy the beach (chairs, umbrella, and towels included!). Katherine was easy to work with and she even coordinated with a rental company that we had used (to rent a crib, stroller, and high chair) to have everything set up prior to our arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there!

Car: not necessary

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!
