|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
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
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.

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.
There are many good details about this property! I was so pleased with the cleanliness. It is such a wonderful experience to have the owner greet you and hand over the keys along with a friendly welcome and advice on restaurants. (The food at Snapper Jack's was outstanding.) It is just a pleasant walk to the area by the pier with the shops and restaurants. The drive to Charleston is easy. The beach access is near, and chairs are provided by these owners. Wow! So much to do - I long to return.
This was an ideal rental for a couple looking to relax and explore. We were greeted upon arrival and made to feel very welcome. The rental was perfect for the two of us and with in a couple blocks of the beach and downtown folly. We couldn't have asked for any more. Thanks! I will definitely book again if our travels take us to Charleston.
This was the perfect place for my partner and I to crash each night after visiting friends in Charleston and exploring Folly Beach during Thanksgiving week. It's spotless, well-maintained, and provides just enough space for a couple to relax in a charming beach-cottage environment. (The beach really is less than a minute away from your door, which is very nice.) Katherine and Sam are the perfect hosts--they live right there so they are available if you need them, but they're good about giving you all of the space and downtime you might need to unwind. (Make sure to get dining recommendations from them, though--they're spot on!) We had a wonderful visit and will definitely try to return soon!
This little cottage was just the size for 2 people. Very convenient to everything, would stay here again.
Katherine is very friendly and welcoming. The Chill shack is a very clean and cozy space. Love the colors and decorating, so beachy and comfortable. It's very convenient to the beach and to "downtown" Folly which we enjoyed very much. Great dining and shops. The beach is wonderful we found lots of cool shells and had it mostly to ourselves since it was early November. Also, really liked having the beach chairs nice touch! We enjoyed the stay very much and would definitely recommend the rather shacks. Great time was had. Just two minor things to mention, I would like to have had a shelf or rack in the shower to place shower soap, shampoo etc on there is only the shower stall floor not a huge deal but would be a nice convenience and I was surprised that it was not a free standing cottage as it seemed to be presented that way on VRBO and was one reason I was drawn to it. It is actually one house divided into 3 apartments with a shared courtyard and outdoor shower space. It was fine because the other apartments were empty most of our stay so it was like having it to ourselves but in high season may be a little hectic if you are seeking a private cottage for quiet alone time.
We visited Folly Beach over 4th of July and our ChillShack rental could not have been more perfect. Check-in was a breeze, the size of the rental is perfect for two people, and the rental had everything we needed for a great week at the beach. We loved that the unit had a grill, an outside shower, drying racks to hang our wet towels, and that beach chairs were provided. (Seriously, the beach chairs were crucial!) The location of this house is absolutely perfect - it's far enough away from Center Street that you avoid a lot of the traffic and noise, but still close enough that you can walk to Center Street for drinks and dinner. It's also so close to the beach - walking to the beach with our chairs, bags, and cooler was incredibly easy.
We rented bikes (from Folly Beach Adventures) for the week and rode them everywhere; the only time we hopped in the car was to run to the grocery store mid-week. We also booked a dolphin tour through Tideline Tours - highly recommend this tour! We saw 20+ dolphins throughout the tour and collected some beautiful seashells on Morris Island. It was the highlight of our trip. We think Loggerheads has the best drinks, The Lost Dog has the best breakfast, and we never had a bad meal at Rita's.
We will definitely be back and would love to rent this unit again if we can! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful beach getaway.
THIS UNIT IS ONLY FOR 2 GUEST!!! TWO HEARTBEATS! That's it! Don't ask for a 3rd heartbeat. EVERY HEARTBEAT COUNTS. Babies, kids and adults all have a heartbeat. Don't show up with three!!!! You will not be refunded any payment.
We live on property, which means we are here 24/7.
Thank you for understanding our policy.
