2 BR 1.5 Bath CUTE CUTE CUTE
We named it the RATHERSHACK because you'd rather be here than anyplace else in the world. We are 'second row' from the beach - which means a 45 second walk for you slow pokes, or 30 seconds for the average beach bum. The cottage we are advertising and scheduling here is the 2 BR 1.5 bath, this one is called the BeachShack. Lots of charm and beach feel decor at no extra charge as this unit has all new beach-style furnishings, flooring, paint, new roof, and new air conditioning installed. All cottages have open floor plans for casual gatherings after your day at the beach. This Unit has a fully stocked kitchen utensils etc with microwave and dishwasher. The 2 BR features a large master with a queen bed and the second bedroom has a full bed, plenty of changing room. Super clean no allergens pet dander etc as we do not allow pets. Units have cable TV and WIFI. Off Street parking for 1 vehicles included. . Gas grill on site available for you grill masters out there. Riding bikes is one of our favorite things to do around around here, and look at all the sugar shacks, moderate homes, and homemade fishing piers plopped right next to the occasional McMansion. Architectural variety on every block. Folly Beach makes no judgment on who you are or where you come from...just bring your flip flops and come as you are.

About KATHERINE GRIMES
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 Cottage in 2012
Why KATHERINE GRIMES chose Folly Beach
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.

The Beach Shack was the perfect vacation location!
No detail was overlooked in the Beach Shack! Beautifully decorated and stocked with all the needed supplies! It was a short walk from the beach and lots of great dining options! Charleston was an easy drive for some fun as well! We would highly recommend booking a vacation!
Great place to stay close to the beach!
My husband and I wanted to stay as close to the beach as possible since we have a 1 year old and didn't want to have to pack up the car every time. We absolutely loved staying here! It's a very short walk to the beach and it's well stocked for all your needs. It was so nice to be able to cook and have everything right there. They even have beach towels! Katherine and her husband are very accommodating and friendly. We will for sure be back and would recommend this place to friends!
Cute, cozy cottage near the beach and downtown Folly
Very clean and Kat was very accommodating. We loved being able to grill and cook in our own kitchen, which was decently stocked. The front bedroom is really close to a very busy street but with a fan we found in the closet, it worked out ok for sleeping (so many cars all night long!). It was really nice that the house had some awesome beach chairs available for use. Thank you for a fun vacation for our family!
The “shack” was perfect for our vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great... one block from the beach and a couple blocks from the downtown area. It was decorated nicely and the new bathrooms were a bonus. Everything was super clean. Katherine was very helpful and accommodating! We can’t wait to return! 5 stars for sure!
Perfect spot for a family get-away!
My husband and I spent 4 nights at the BeachShack in mid-March with our 9 month old daughter. The space was perfect for the 3 of us. We slept in the master (has a half bath) and we set up her pack and play crib in the other bedroom. The living room is small, but had the perfect amount of room for us to sit on the couch and the baby to crawl around on the floor. As other reviewers have mentioned, Katherine has the place well supplied with everything you need to cook, grill, or drink wine or beer! We used the grill one night and it worked perfectly. We did have to do some baby laundry while we were there (that's really the only drawback- no washer and dryer), but my husband found the laundromat in town "easy peasy." We would definitely recommend to friends or strangers.
Great location, clean!
This property was perfectly situated within walking distance to a convenience store, and only 5 minute walk to the beach. Shops and restaurants are also within walking distance. It took us about 40 minutes to travel to Charleston. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing stay!
We at the Rathershacks love the laid back feeling that Folly Beach has to offer. There are 15 bars/restaurants, Berts 24-hour grocery store (beer and eggs at 3am!), paddle boarding, kayak, boat rentals, bike rentals and Folly Beach Pier all within walking distance. You will be just 15 minutes from beautiful historic downtown Charleston with all of its southern charm, culture, colleges, and a lifetime's worth of award winning bars and restaurants. In 2014 Charleston was voted the number 1 city to visit in the USA by Conde Nast Traveler for the fourth year in a row. Come see why. In addition you can visit the historic plantations and battle grounds of the Lowcountry to get a feel for Charleston in the 1800's. This history stuff is nice but we know you would really rather be back at the Rathershacks on Folly Beach!
