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.

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.

Fun times!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Exceeded every expectation!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Folly Beach for the first time over spring break and to celebrate a birthday. Donna was so helpful in preparing for our trip, and we were delighted that the property exceeded even its glowing reviews. Close walk to the beach & restaurants yet so quiet and peaceful. The Shack is adorable! Very comfortable - it felt like home immediately. We definitely plan to return!

Perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at The Shimmee Shack and we are never disappointed. As soon as we arrive we immediately feel the stresses of everyday life just disappear. Within minutes we were in the sea feeling like it had only taken moments to unwind. The Shack is so comfortable and welcoming and has everything we need to have a wonderful vacation. This home is furnished to a high standard with comfortable chairs and beds and little touches of luxury that make the vacation feel special. The location is perfect for us as we don't like noise but like the fact that we can walk to the beach and restaurants in moments. Donna is helpful and responsive and it is clear she makes every effort to ensure visitors feel at home. We only wish we could visit more often as a week is never enough! Thank you Donna.

The Shimme Shack is a charming cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The best rental experience I've ever had. Donna was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt in responding to me and very accommodating. After our amazing stay my daughter left behind her favorite "can't sleep without" stuffed animal. Donna was so kind to mail him back to us quickly. We like to think that Brown Doggie just wanted to stay a few extra days with Donna in Folly Beach and we can't blame him.

The Shimmee Shack is a wonderful house that truly feels like home. The house has character and charm with all the wonderful touches that Donna has added.

The house is very spacious so don't let the photos fool you. From the moment my family walked in the door we felt at home. The house has everything you need and I mean everything including a great location. It's on a quiet street with the beach, restaurants, and shops just 5 minutes away. My family walked everywhere, there was no need to drive. We also loved that The Shimmee Shack was pet friendly and that dogs are welcome in town.

Folly Beach is a great place to vacation if you're looking for a laid back beach town. My family really enjoyed this trip and we'll definitely come back and stay at The Shimmee Shack.

Perfect Vacation Spot for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

We adored the Shimmee Shack and it absolutely made our trip so much more relaxing and enjoyable. The location was great - not too far to walk to the beach and super close to Center Street for shopping and restaurants. We loved the openness of the home and the gathering spaces were perfect for our family and friends. Everything we needed was there - all the things we wanted for both in the house and at the beach. The screened-in porch was perfect for relaxing and listening to the afternoon rainstorms cool off the evening. It was an easy beach stroll to the pier and we made that a nightly tradition. We cooked in almost every night and had friends join us often. I would recommend the Shimmee Shack to anyone - and we will certainly call them first for our next year's reservation!
