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

Great location and comfortable accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to The Beach Shack on Folly Beach. We were so close to the beach access and the downtown shops and restaurants. The property is comfortable, beautifully furnished, and easy to locate. The beach chairs and umbrellas certainly came in handy. The only downside was the noise level at night. Ashley Rd seemed to be a pretty busy street for both pedestrians and cars. The home did not keep any of the noise out at all (including the loud late night crew coming home from bars, the early morning shoppers, and every single car speeding by ). We found ourselves going to the store to find ear plugs after our first night there just to sleep through the night. While a minor issue- losing sleep is tough! We had a great experience working with Katherine and Sam and I would highly recommend them- they were so kind and accommodating. I would definitely look for one of their properties again if I were returning to Folly Beach, just maybe one a bit more removed from the busy road.

Short but sweet!

  • 5 of 5

We only spent two nights at RatherShacks but it was just right for our family! All the amenities we needed and just as described on the website. Perfectly located a few blocks from the Main Street area and just across the street from the beach! We will return and send others as well!

The Kilbys!

Great beach, great house, great time!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I took a Spring Break vacation together at the Rathershacks. It was my first trip to Folly Beach, as well as first time at the Rathershacks. We had a great stay. The house was extremely comfortable and close to everything. There was a small dining area outside, as well as a grill and a covered carport with room to sit out in the evenings. It was less than a minute's walk to be right on the beach, which was fantastic! We were also close enough to town to walk everywhere, including the pier. There are a ton of great restaurants nearby, cute shops, and a market just a couple of blocks from the house. There is also a larger Harris Teeter about 5 minutes by car.

Our week was fun and relaxed. The town is very friendly as well. The owner was extremely nice and gave us tips on shopping and dining. We are already planning our next vacation and will definitely make staying here a must do! Great location and home. Loved the whole trip.

The best vacation accommodations we ever made!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this property to any and all! There are several units located on the property to choose from. Impressive two bedrooms to darling studios! It's everything we all seek when planning a get away. Well appointed, clean, convenient and safe accommodations. The owners/property managers live directly across the street and made us feel incredibly welcome and appreciated as soon as we arrived. Quite certain we'll return!

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!
