Overview

About the property

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.

What makes this cottage unique

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Shack was a perfect get away spot for our vacation!! Katt & Sam welcomed us with true southern hospitality and all their recommendations for food and fun were spot on! We don't have one negative thing to say about our experience, except we would have liked to stay longer!!

Everything about the Surfshack was amazing! Clean, perfectly decorated, close to the beach and downtown area and the owners were very accommodating! Will definitely return to the Rathershacks again!

The Rathershack

  • 5 of 5

This home was so clean and the owners were so welcoming! The Rather shack is a two minute walk to the beach and the beach is beautiful! I did not have to worry about anything while staying there. Every need was taken care of while we were there. We walked in and the beds were made, towels provided, kitchen fully stocked, wifi for the kids, beach chairs and umbrellas provided, blankets, and so much more were provided. I would come back and drink some beer again with Katherine and Sam! I loved it!

Great Location, Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Festival of Homes and Gardens and we thought we'd spend our free time at the beach! Well, it ended up being cold and windy... but this cottage proved to be in perfect walking distance from all Folly has to offer and is a two minute walk from the beach.... so each morning we'd get up and walk down the beach to grab our coffee or breakfast. The home has very comfortable beds, a nice kitchen, and feels very cozy. I would stay here again and again! Also, the owners are the best. So kind and eager to make sure you have a great stay! They made everything so easy!

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.
