1 Bedroom 1 Bath One Block To The Beach
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 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 HomeAway.com 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.

Cute and great location!
Great stay! Great location! Katt called us an hour before we arrived and said AIRBNB had double booked us but provided us another of their available rentals. A block closer to the beach! Win for us! Place was very cute, spotlessly clean and a great location! Thanks Katt!
Perfect for a solo traveler. Location is fantastic. Every promised in listing was as described and photographed. Just a couple of hiccups: both ceiling fans were dirty, and noisy. Also, my cellphone broke halfway through trip. I tried to contact hosts through VRBO website for some logistical help but never heard back. I will definitely recommend this place and intend to come back as soon as possible!! What a great trip!
Most Relaxing Stay
This was our first vacation in 2 years and our first time at Folly Beach. Our stay was everything we hoped for and more. The Chill Shack was perfect....it was clean, comfortable and lovely with all the comforts of home. The property was well kept and the location couldn't be better....a block from the beach and walking distance to everything in town. It was only a 20 minute drive into Charleston as well. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Katherine for having such a lovely place for us to relax and decompress for a few days.
I apologize to the owners of this property for the delay in this review - I was busy packing to move into their apartment...:-)
All joking aside, this was probably the most wonderful rental I've ever had. And would be so for any other single person or couple. Small, but so well laid out and decorated that it never felt cramped.. I'm normally outside every moment I can be but I found myself very content to be curled up on the sofa with my coffee and a book in the morning or watching TV in the evening. High ceilings, open, light and bright, incredibly clean, furnished with all you need but not cluttered with excess. Less than a half mile from the center of town but in a quiet residential area, with a secluded yard at your doorstep. Turn left out of the driveway for a few steps, cross the block and then one quiet street and there's your beautiful beach access. Plant a chair and read. Go shelling. Enjoy the lovely warm surf -I was there mid-September and the water temp was 80. Mosey down towards the pier, select from several restaurants, and have any of a huge variety of local beers and something amazing like Chico Feo's incredible tacos.. Folly Beach doesn't have a boardwalk or an enormous amount of shops. It has just enough. And it's minutes away from that gem of the south, Charleston, S C.
The owners live just across the street, and Katherine and her husband are lovely people and are instantly responsive. I got to see another one of their several properties - it is even more beautiful and it's clear that there's a very high standard held to in their rentals.
I hated to leave. And I can't wait to go back.
We can not wait for your return. You are a fun lady and we loved that you loved Folly and our little Shacks.
Best trip ever
We loved the location of the property and the whole place in general! Short walk to the beach, chairs available to borrow daily, and fun vibes! We would absolutely stay here again. It had everything we needed and more.
Summer Folly Beach Visit
This was our second time staying in this property. We were so impressed the first time we came back. The place is perfect for two people. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and not cheap stuff, things you can actually cook with. The bed is cozy, and the living space is just enough to kick back and relax in the AC when need be. There is a nice courtyard area outside to sit in as well. The walk to the beach is very short, pretty much one house over to get to the corner and then a block down to the access (less than 5 minutes). The beach area is not overly crowded and the owners provide beach chairs. Speaking of the owners, they are easily accessible without being overbearing and very personable. The check in process was super easy and Katherine kept in touch the day of arrival to be sure our arrival time was staying on track. We will be back to visit Folly Beach and the Rathershacks again someday!
Thank you so much for a beautiful review. It really touched my heart.
