About the property

2 bedroom 1 bath this one is great for Familys

The cottage we are advertising and scheduling here is the SAND SHACK listing #4086494, and is a 2 BR / 1 bath just an easy 2 minute walk to the beach. It is at ground level and you will be greeted by the Folly Mermaid mural on the wall outside the front door to remind you where you need to be. You will have the biggest yard on our property and it is fully fenced for your exclusive use to hang out and feel the morning sunshine with your coffee, or relax in the shade after a long day in the sun. It has its own outdoor shower to rinse the sand from your toes and the sunscreen from your back. The yard is great for little kids to play in and be fully contained. And.. you’ve got your own gas grill to fire up and feed your brood after a fun-filled day at the beach. Inside there is lots of charm and beach feel decor at no extra charge as this unit has all new beach-style furnishings, and tile floors. The open floor plan to the kitchen is great for for casual gatherings after your day at the beach and has a separate door to access your back yard. A fully stocked kitchen awaits you with all the utensils etc., a full stove, microwave, and dishwasher. This 2 BR features a large master with queen bed, local art work, and shabby chic charm. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds for the kids, or in a pinch you can roll them together for a cozy couple. The bathroom has all new tile and marble custom shower, and a true throne motif in play as you step up to the shower. Super clean no allergens, pet dander etc as we do not allow pets. Cable TV, WIFI , and off street parking for 1 vehicle included. Folly Beach makes no judgment on who you are or where you come from...just bring your flip flops and come as you are. Call me with any and all other questions as we have so much more to offer and tell you about our property.

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 apartment 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.

Quick vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great and Katherine was easy to work with for booking and meeting us at the apartment when we checked in. The apartment was nicer than we expected which added to our enjoyable vacation. It was a short easy walk to the beach. Our Homeaway confirmation said our check out time was 11 only to find Katerine telling us check out was at 10. Wish communication could have been clearer.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time at the RatherShacks. Our check out time is listed in our contract that we send out to all guest. It has been the same for 6 years. We still can't find where HomeAway has check out time listed at 11. But they are checking into it. We loved having you stay with us. We hope to have you here again. Katt and Sam

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the SandShack. We had everything we needed except food and clothing. The beds were so comfortable, which I can not say for every property that I stay at ....which happens to at least twice a year. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!

Wonderful Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Sand Shack!! It was a perfect getaway for our little family! Our girls loved the mermaid that greets you when you arrive. It truly feels like home. Kat made sure all our needs were taken care of. Easy to access the beach with just a short walk and perfect little yard for our girls to run around in and a shower so you can wash the sand away at the end of your beach day. We will be coming back year after year!!! Thank you Sam & Kat for your little piece of paradise and sharing it!!! We already loved Folly but now we have even more reason to come back more often!!!

Great place for 4 people. Well cared for. Love yard and beach.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the adorable apartment. Everything is practically brand new and very clean. The proximity to the beach is nice and Burt's market is an easy walk. Our host were very attentive. They even helped us in with our bags! Chico Feo restaurant, just 3 blocks away was hard to skip each night. It has lively music, great food, and an awesome in the backyard feel. We saw the fireworks on the beach and loved it!
