About the property

2 Bedroom 1 bath

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 bath, the other listing is #3478178. 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. This unit has an open floor plan for casual gatherings after your day at the beach. This unit has fully stocked kitchen utensils etc with microwave and dishwasher. The 2 BR features a large master with queen bed, shabby chic charm. The second bed has a full bed with new pillow top thick mattresses, and plenty of changing room. Super clean no allergens pet dander etc as we do not allow pets. This Unit has 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.

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 townhome 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.

We also have 5 other cottages to look at, go to and check them out.

What makes this townhome unique

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

Wonderful place for a beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about the Roofshack at Folly Beach...we have stayed at many VRBOs all over the country. This is the BEST one yet!!! The beach house is decorated with the perfect combination of comfort and simple beauty. The beds are super comfortable ...a must for us. It is one of the cleanest places we have stayed in. The kitchen is fully stocked, the outside grill a big plus and the bathroom with the shower and claw foot tub a wonderful treat. The location is within a short walk to the beach, and within walking distance to the downtown restaurants and shops. We ended staying an extra day because we enjoyed ourselves so much! Many thanks to Katherine and Sam for a much needed r and r! They are perfect hosts!

Lovely time at Folly

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my whole time at RoofShack. Perfect for commuting to the peninsula and visiting friends on James Island. Clean and roomy enough to host my three-year-old granddaughter. Katt was so helpful and always available, especially when I locked up to leave and left my phone inside the locked apartment!

Bright and airy space. Very clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for two adults or two adults and one child since there is one bathroom. Owners have provided everything you need including bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, a very well equipped kitchen, gas grill, etc. Sam and Kitt made some great restaurant suggestions. The house is a short walk to the beach but also close enough to the bars and restaurants to walk, but far enough away to be nice and quiet. We felt very at home and enjoyed our stay.

Our first beach house rental

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to be welcomed by Sam and Katt .They were extremely helpful as well as friendly!! The house was clean , comfortable and welcoming. We had a blast at the closely located beach access as well as being able to walk no more than 3 blocks from the center of town. I recommend you go to this awesome rental property you won't regret it
