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 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.

                                                          Although the weather was not the best, our stay at The Chill Shack made up for it! Adorable and super comfortable! We were welcomed by Katherine, who went over the essential info that we needed, and the place was ours to enjoy. And, that we did! It was a perfect size for a couple to relax, cook meals and get great sleep in the comfy bed! A start up kit (paper towels, toilet paper, etc) was waiting for us, which was perfect until we made a trip to the store! So helpful! The beach was a quick three minute walk away, and beach chairs were right there for us to borrow and bring along. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful cottage at Folly Beach with us! We will be back!!

                                                          Cute place in great location!

                                                          Chandra G.baltimore, md, usa

                                                          I had the opportunity to stay in the Chill Shack for the whole month of February. It's a super cute place, very clean, up-to-date, and nicely decorated. The location can't be beat! One block to the ocean is a dream come true! It's just about four blocks to the main street of shopping and restaurants, so that's very convenient too. (Be careful walking, though—no sidewalks and the house is on one of the busiest streets.) The RatherShacks are a unique setup. There are multiple residences on one piece of land and several of the "shacks," including this one, are a part of one large house. The yard is private from the street but shared with the other "shacks." So if you are looking for maximum quiet and privacy, this may not be a good fit for you. Katt and Sam were super responsive to all of my questions and requests and I appreciated all their help for a first-timer to Folly! I loved walking on the beach every day. You can't believe the amount of shells. There are lots of surfers here too. Downtown Charleston is a short drive away. There are lots of great breweries to try all around the area. I definitely loved my stay in Folly and look forward to coming back someday!

                                                          Fun and frolic a Folly Beach

                                                          Very quaint and comfortable - better than a hotel room
