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.

Always a peaceful retreat and so close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 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
