About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bath One Block To The Beach

Me, You and the Sea…if that’s your definition of the perfect Folly Beach vacation then the Chill Shack is the one for you.

The smallest of our Shacks, the Chill Shack is also the coziest…and some might argue the most charming and romantic as well. There’s plenty of room for two with the Queen sized bed. 2 heartbeats maximum.

The Chill Shack is located right in the middle of all the Rathershack action. Like the other Shacks, you are just a short walk to the beach but you can also sit outside your Shack and lounge in the sun in your private fenced courtyard.

While the Chill Shack is cozy, you will lack for nothing. The open kitchen and living room allows you to interact with your guests while you make dinner in our fully equipped kitchen. Chances are good though that you may prefer fixing your dinner on the gas grill that’s right outside your front door and dining al fresco under the Folly Beach stars.

Don’t let the small size fool you — the Chill Shack has everything you need for a perfect Folly Beach vacation.

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

What makes this cottage unique

All bars on Folly Beach are within walking distance. Plus the house was pink...and we decided to keep the color.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 1 BR bath, this one is called the ChillShack. 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. 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 1 BR features a large master with a queen 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.

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was PERFECT for our weekend getaway to Folly Beach/Charleston! It was perfect size for me and my husband, with all the amenities we needed to make it feel like home. Katt and Sam were great hosts, who were close enough if we needed them but otherwise didn't bother us. I wished we could have stayed longer and we hope to come back soon to visit.

If you are looking for a charming little house that's right by the beach and only steps to downtown Folly, then this house is for you!!

The absolute BEST place to stay in Folly Beach, SC

  • 5 of 5

If I could give 10 Stars to the "Chillshack", I would! Couldn't have picked a better place to stay during our vacation in Folly Beach, SC. It is so clean and so cute and such a beautiful area! It is everything you see on the website, and more! Owners, Katt and Sam make sure you have everything you could possibly need. Kitchen is fully equipped and towels and linens are included along with beach towels, beach chairs and beach umbrella. Included is a gas grill and patio area for cooking and eating out. Unit is so comfortable and cozy. We had a one minute walk to the beach and only a couple of blocks from stores and restaurants, and bars. Also, Charleston was only 10 minutes away. Katt and Sam are right there if you need anything or if there is a problem. And they are awesome! Will never stay anywhere else than one of the "Rathershacks" when at Folly Beach, SC.

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We found the Chill Shack convenient to the beach and entertainment options. Katt made sure the unit was clean and well stocked with necessary furnishings and supplies. We couldn't ask for a better home away from home experience. This was our first time using VRBO / HomeAway and Katt and Sam made sure the experience was a great one.

As I believe that it is better to see something once than hear about it thousand times, I will keep my review short and sweet and let the beauty of Folly speak for itself.I have been to many beaches in my life as an Air Force Brat, I have lived in Southern California, many coastal towns on the East Coast and have vacationed in the Caribbean and Hawaii.These are all places that most people see as amazing destinations.I can agree with that- but there was always something missing for me. I was sort of homesick for a place I had never been.Turns out, Folly is that place. Any beach town can have sun, sand, good food and a hotel with access to all of those things.But, as I found out with my first trip to Folly- you can have more than that. It is truly hard to find the words to express the sense of community, the natural beauty in the green space, the look on the faces of the surfers who get up early and live and breathe for the ocean, the kind words from strangers just trying to unwind and take it all in from the front seat of their golf carts.The amazing food steps away and sunsets that make you never want to leave.There is something about this place that calls to me, makes me believe in the magic of this little beach town and all of its amazing people.

Among those great people are the owners of the house we rented.Kat and Sam were not your typical rental owners. From the minute we inquired about their property, they were responsive and so kind.They were there to greet us upon arrival, helping to carry our luggage into the house and show us all the ins and outs of the property.They provided not only the things we needed inside the house, but even outside we had access to an outdoor shower, outdoor dining area, beach chairs, outdoor grill- it was amazing! They thought of every single detail and you can clearly see that they took their own travel experiences and poured their heart into this home and into the experience for each guest.Kat and Sam turned our trip into a vacation.It is true that there is no place like home, but only because Kat and Sam created something better than home.I am thankful for the trips I have been able to take in the past, but I am moved by my stay at Rather Shacks.I can tell you how great I think it is, but you have to experience it for yourself. If you are looking to go anywhere else, skip that trip.You deserve to treat yourself to a place and to a company that cares about you and your experience.#noplaceIwouldRATHER

Absolutely perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here and we fell in love with it! Sam and Kat are so friendly and helpful! They have really thought of everything and anything you might need for your stay. The shack is perfect for 2 people and beautifully decorated. It is super close to the beach and a short walk to downtown Folly. I could not recommend this place enough!!! We had a wonderful week here and can't wait to come back!!!

This was the most adorable little cottage. Perfect for 2. The beach was awesome and walking doable.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was very relaxing and the property was well maintained and when a problem arise with the propane Katt and Sam where there to attend to the issue immediately. They are very attentive hosts and made sure our stay was Folly beach fun all the way. Everything you would need beside paper and personals were provided. Well worth the cost. Would stay again and bring family to stay in the other properties.
