Spend your 'daze' swimming, boating, fishing, surfing, kayaking, golfing, biking and shopping. Experience the locals, fresh seafood and a wide variety of foods from gourmet to local pub fare.

After experiencing a full Folly day, as the sun is setting, relax into the island evening and it's natural settings on our screened in porch. Prepare your meal in the gourmet kitchen, or grill some fresh caught fish.

When it's time to call it a day, take a soak in the jacuzzi tub and slip into the comfort of your own bedroom with private is good at the edge.

The home is located 2 blocks to Center Street where you can enjoy shopping, restaurants and fun filled activities for the kids. The ocean and fishing pier are 4 short blocks away.

A lovely weekend on the beach to celebrate the end of summer. The house was perfect - comfortable, homey and peaceful.

Thanks, hope to come back soon.

Shimmee Shack Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the house. Everything was there from beach chairs and towels to be able to cook dinner at home.The owners were easily reachable and a delight to deal with. The house was clean and comfortable and walking distance to the beach, market and restaurants. Very convenient location! We would definitely book there again.

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this house justice. It's roomy, tidy, and very convenient. Although they allow pets, you'd never know that other people had pets in there. The kitchen is super cool, with a large, very clean pantry for storage. It was really fun to walk to town and enjoy the restaurants. We just loved it and can't wait to go back. Donna was super helpful and easy to work with.

Night Walks on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our one week stay at the Shimmee Shack. It's so close to everything downtown Folly. Donna and Dave have thought of everything you could want/need at your beach vacation home. One of our favorite things to do was to take the flashlights she provided and go down to the beach at night. We hunted for shells, saw a hermit crab in a large conch shell and big and little crabs. So relaxing! Thank you, Donna and Dave for your hospitality!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great visit to Folly where we stayed at this lovely house for the first time! We had my son and his friend for a birthday trip and so we used all the great bedrooms and the whole house! The pictures don't show how roomy this house is! The screened in porch was one of my favorite places to get up and sit in the morning with a cup of coffee. The kitchen was super spacious for cooking and Donna has thought of everything a person might need for their trip.....including the big basket of spices I discovered in the pantry when I realized I had left my own at home! The grill was fantastic outside because we had a few days of rain but plenty of dry space to cook outside with the bottom porch. We loved being only a couple blocks from the beach AND Bert's Market! Would highly recommend this house, beautifully decorated, feels like home and even my dog was welcomed which is a big factor for me in picking a place to stay. Thanks Donna! The Bruce Family

Fun times!!

We were attending a wedding in Charleston and the Shimmee Shack was the perfect location for all of us and our little dog. This home has EVERYTHING you need to stay in or to go to the beach. It was so nice to be able to experience Folly Beach. Thanks Donna!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at the Shimmee Shack! They really do provide everything you could ever need or want when renting a beach home...not to mention they had a vase of fresh flowers in the kitchen when we arrived - such a nice touch! All the beds and living room furniture are very comfortable - we felt so cozy and "at home" all week. The screened in porch area is truly awesome with ample seating and space to relax. The house itself is a short walk to the beach (closer than we anticipated) and only a few blocks to the main strip. Thanks so much for everything - we will be back!!
