Our Largest Shack 2 Bedroom 2 Bath

The Surf Shack

It’s a bittersweet offering that you are able to stay in one of our newest shacks. You see the Surf Shack was the unit WE lived in for 3 summers. We chose it because as you’ll see it is the best on our property-with 2 good sized bedrooms, each with their own full bath. We lived and loved every inch of it. From the front yard which has full afternoon sun, and is protected from the wind for those marginal beach days, to the high fence and overgrown vines you can pull up a chair and catch the shade on those 98 degree humid July afternoons. It has the biggest grill on property for you to fire up the burgers and steaks to perfection. In addition, you have an outdoor shower tucked away to wash off the salt and sand after a day at the beach. But it’s the INSIDE that we added all the little touches that will make you fall in love with her. With big windows facing south and west you can be flooded with sunshine (or draw the shades as you wake up on the couch with a well -earned hangover). For a touch of nostalgia you have our ORIGINAL Rathershacks sign in the vaulted ceiling living room. Also, you have one of our very cool dual headed fans to keep you comfortable and enhance the central air (let us know when you figure out which button makes it spin). The kitchen island was made from reclaimed wood from an 1860’s tobacco barn and is vintage South Carolina. We were going to take it with us to our new house across the street but it’s too darn heavy, so you win. All the appliances were upgraded to stainless steel so there is an air of Five Star luxury to your kitchen experience. You can’t miss our custom designed sunglasses + car key holder and sunscreen supply shelf—both are needed nooks for a vacation at the beach. It is our master bedroom we will miss the most…It gets morning sun, and you can watch the squirrels play on the lattice fence outside on most mornings. Our headboard is an old fireplace mantle found upstate in a 1905 Victorian house that we meticulously restored. It is the romantic centerpiece of our home, and this old mantle keeps her secrets. We painted it 49 shades of VERY LIGHT gray-nothing crazy-- so we hope you enjoy yourselves thoroughly! The second bedroom is adorned with a nautical theme and you will feel your inner ocean when you snooze. Both bathrooms have all new tile and fixtures so you can clean up in luxury as you head out on the town. With you as our guest, we know she will be in good hands.

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 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 take a look at, go to HomeAway.com and check them out.

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little rental house. We arrived on Friday and the owners greeted us with the keys and gave us a great rundown of places to check out on Folly. They live nearby so they were accessible in case of an issue, but we didn't have any issues at all during our stay.

The house was clean and ready to go. You really don't need to bring much... the beds were made and there were clean towels ready to go. There are even beach chairs/towels for guest use as well.

We loved Folly beach... the pier at sunset is amazing and beach access from the house was a quick 5 minute walk. You're close enough to walk to the Folly beach downtown area as well as a little grocery store/sandwich shop about 2 blocks away. This is one of 3 units in a single house. It would be a great house to come to with friends... everyone would be right there, but you'd still have your own space.

We loved our visit and the owners were fantastic to deal with. The best review you can give is going back; I'm sure we'll be back soon.

Wonderful home for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this house. Everything was exceptionally clean and organized. The house was perfect for our small kids, too. Just a short walk to the beach, and the courtyard was a great place to hang out in the evenings. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone visiting Folly. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

Week of bliss at the Surfshack

  • 5 of 5

This property is just amazing!! The location is great. You can walk to down town Folly and the beach is just right around the corner. Katherine and Sam have thought of everything. You have a Weber grill, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, parking spot, WIFI, full stocked kitchen, cable, etc. The Surfshack is modern and clean, clean, clean. We love Folly Beach and felt so at home staying in the Surfshack. Don't miss an opportunity to stay at one of their properties. You will not be disappointed, and if you need anything they are right across the street and they provide amazing customer service!!! Can't wait to come back.....

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at the surfshack. This was our first time using VRBO and I can honestly say we will use it again thanks to Sam and Katherine. They have and wonderful place and were great to work with. Due to flight problems, we were 7 1/2 hours late getting there and they were always in contact with us and right there to greet us when we finally got there. The unit is clean, adorable and so inviting.

Wonderful place to stay for our wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Surfshack for our wedding weekend, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay! Surfshack is so well decorated and beachy. We had plenty of space and enjoyed relaxing with friends in the beautiful outdoor area. The kitchen included everything we needed to prepare meals, and we loved the open floorplan. Also, Surfshack is located close enough to walk downtown but also is a bit away from the hustle and bustle. Katherine and Sam were wonderful hosts- so welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend Surfshack to a family on vacation or a few friends looking for a lovely Folly Beach getaway. Thank you so much, Katherine and Sam, for providing us with such a great place to stay during our wedding weekend! We will definitely be back!
