1 Bedroom 1 Bath One Block To The Beach
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. We also have 5 other cottages to look at, go to HomeAway.com and check them out.

What makes this Cottage unique
All bars on Folly Beach are within walking distance. Plus the house was pink...and we decided to keep the color.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 1 BR bath, this one is called the ChillShack. 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. 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 1 BR features a large master with a queen 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.

Another Fabulous Vacation At The Rathershacks!
What more can I say?! Katt & Sam are phenomenal hosts and The Rathershacks are a dream. This is my second summer renting from them and am already planning my third! The ChillShack is beautifully appointed, impeccably clean, offers plenty of space for a couple, and is steps away from the beach & the center of town. The house was stocked with every kitchen item/utensil you might need, ample plush towels, beach chairs, and a lovely, lush backyard with comfy lawn chairs. Katt & Sam make check in/out a snap and are always happy to answer questions - they even popped over on the 4th of July when we had a little trouble getting the gas grill started - truly above & beyond! Thanks for everything and see you next year!
Everything you need!
Kat and Sam are great owners and The Chill Shack was perfect for us. Right off the beach (outside of the E 3rd-W 3rd St lines where there's more beach rules) and a short walk into town. The property has a great private yard and all the amenities a couple could want or need. Couldn't be happier with the decision to stay in The Rather Shacks!
Perfect location. Nice and clean. Exactly what we were looking for
Relaxing in Folly Beach
Smooth process from beginning to end.
Location to beach was most important amenity along with a comfortable clean unit/house. Both of them where achieved at a great value.
What a cute set up the Rathershacks have.
Cute shabby chic one bedroom perfect distance from busy center of town and beach. We biked all around the island, walked the folly beach and ate great food 3 blocks away. We plan to return!
Charming beach stay for a couple
The pictures show the charm and sweetness of the decor.
This unit is for two people and is connected to another unit. Not the Ritz but comfortable beds,,good linens, plenty hot water. lots of nice plush towels and good AC..important as temperatures get warm. Also internet access. Beach is a block away. Center street is only three blocks and very walkable. Our favorite restaurants were Pier 101 overlooking the beach, Rita's for shrimp and cheesy grits(plus live music) and the Pineapple Shack for Dole pineapple floats or sundaes. We enjoyed the beach so much we didn't get into Charleston to sightsee as we planned. Beach chairs and towels are provided. There is an outside shower to wash the sand off.
The back yard is shared with another tenant. We didn't have any neighbors until the last two nights of our visit when we discovered the wall by the kitchen was so thin we could hear conversations..my solution? I ran the dishwasher for white noise and was fine. If you get a quiet couple then perhaps there would not be a noise concern. Our bedroom was at far end of unit so noise for sleeping is no problem. Every night was restful.
Our hostess was very helpful with the check-in and gave us clear instructions for check out. This would be a good place to vacation with another couple and rent both units.
