Pour yourself into comfort, let the Island Life embrace you. Fun is awaiting you just a short breeze away.
The 'Shimmee Shack' is lovingly named for it's natural ability to gather family, friends and pets to celebrate life on the Edge of America. We are a privately owned residence and take pride in managing and maintaining the home ourselves. The comfort of our guests is our main priority.
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 bath...life 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.

This house was perfectly located for our needs. It was close enough to walk to the water (4 blocks) and close to the downtown area (2 blocks) to grab food and drinks. The house has plenty of room, a great enclosed porch where we spent most of our time, and all the necessities so we didn't need to go out and get anything. Will book it again for our return trip.
Perfect location, exactly what we were looking for
We had such a lovely stay at this adorable house. We really appreciated the small touches (chocolates left at the entrance won over our kids the moment we arrived and allowed us to unpack in peace!) There were 5 of us in total, my husband and I and our 3 young children. There was more than enough room for us all to sleep peacefully and a large living room to put together puzzles and snuggle up on the couch to read or watch movies in the evening. The porch is so large and well furnished. Our kids especially loved the large soaking tub in the master bath! The location is excellent as well! We had stayed on the other side of the island on our previous trips but loved being so close to the market, beach, and center st. Loved our stay!
Always a peaceful retreat and so close to everything!
This is the second time we've stayed at the Shimmee Shack, and it's become our favorite place to vacation on Folly Beach. It's SO CLOSE to the beach and to downtown, but still in a quiet street so we're never disturbed by the noise of businesses. The huge screened porch is where we love to sit in the mornings to have coffee and in the evenings for a drink before walking the two short blocks to downtown restaurants.
The house is adorably decorated, comfortably furnished (the most comforable beds we've slept on) and very, very clean. Everything we need is furnished for us. We've brought our pets for both of our stays, and the porch is sheltered enough so that they can't see (and bark at) everyone who passes the house. The beach is just a few streets over, so it's easy to walk them down to the water.
We can't wait to stay here again. Donna is friendly, helpful and very communicative. She's a pleasure to work with.
We loved our stay at the Shimmee Shack. The house was spacious and comfortable and perfect for relaxing. The beach and town were only a few short blocks and we enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. We enjoyed going to Lost Dog Cafe, the food was delicious. It was a great vacation!
Shimmee Shack Rocks!
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!
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.
