Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 1 bath WE ALSO HAVE A 1 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. Call me with any and all other questions as we have so much more to offer and tell you about our property.

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 townhome 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 have 5 other cottages to look at, go to HomeAway.com and check them out.

What makes this townhome unique

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!

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the RoofShack. The location is great, a very short walk to the beach. The house itself was very clean, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. It was the perfect house for our group of 3 for a long weekend getaway. Folly beach was really nice and not too crowded. Restaurants and a local grocery store are within walking distance. We would definitely stay again!

Perfect Girls weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Came down for a girls long weekend getaway and were met by owners. To our surprise even though we had rented the upstairs rental we were being given the option of the upstairs or the downstairs because the downstairs renters were not going to make it. Although the upstairs was so adorable, we chose the downstairs rental with the outside fenced in patio and chair set along with a beautiful yard. Lots of time was spent sitting outside just enjoying the peace of the gardens. Could not have asked for a more perfect place for four girls along with the convenience of being so close to the beach and Center Street. The rental had every thing needed for a long weekend get away. Love Love Loved the decor in all the rooms and we all agreed the beds were so comfortable to sleep in. Thanks so much for an absolutely wonderful weekend and thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in the rental with the outdoors patio option. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting a peaceful get away!!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We (me, wife, and toddler) spent 4 nights at the RoofShack and loved it - it was perfect for our small family. A quick walk to the beach, an easy stroll to the bars/restaurants, and a clean, cozy and comfortable place to come back to made it an ideal vacation for us. We're already discussing making this an annual trip. Thanks Katherine and Sam!

Great location... Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I booked this property for Spring Break April 2017. Katherine, the owner, was very sweet and accommodating. The check-in process was very smooth and efficient. The RoofShack was just perfect for my sister and I. The decorations were cute and fitting for the area. This was our first time staying on Folly Beach but it won't be our last. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk from the property and the main "strip" with restaurants and bars is within walking distance. The owner provides beach towels, beach chairs, and an umbrella, which was a great perk! We stayed three nights and had no complaints. I would definitely recommend this property to a group of 4 or less!
