Overview

About the property

The TinyShack has everything you will need here on Folly Beach

The Tiny Shack

With a little engineering and shabby-sheik ingenuity we turned our old office and storage space into Folly Beach’s cutest efficiency unit with all brand new construction, finishes, and décor. Think small and pretty. If you are an NFL lineman and your significant other is a WNBA star this is not the place for you. It is tiny, yes, but has everything you need for the perfect getaway. You have a full size bed to cuddle close and nap after a great beach day. Watch TV on the flat screen, or prep some snacks in the kitchenette. Your bistro table is more like a corner spot at a cozy Manhattan mini bar, and you can shower in luxury in the brand new tile bath with a modern sleek glass shower that feels more like The Ritz Carlton in Fiji than TheRathershacks on Folly. The main room measures 10ft x12ft- not including the 3ft x 5ft kitchenette, 5ft x 6ft bath, and 2ft x 4ft closet. Outside the front door you have your own dedicated covered patio so you can max relax, all under the watchful eyes of a mermaid and her dolphin friends. You have a small semi-private fenced back yard where there is a grill to channel your inner Bobby Flay or Rachel Ray, and an outdoor shower to wash off the sand and sea of the day. All of this is just a 45 second walk to the beach, and 5 minutes to all the bars and restaurants Folly Beach has to offer. Small is the new big at our latest shack. You will love it!!

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 studio 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 studio unique

No place I'd rather be than the Rathershacks!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the TinyShack was absolute perfection. My fiance and I got engaged right before we came on the trip, and I could not have dreamed of a better place to celebrate than here.

The TinyShack was incredibly comfortable, beautifully designed, and had everything we needed for a perfection beach vacation, even down to chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach. The location is second to none - you are literally 30 seconds from the beach, and just a few blocks from downtown Folly Beach's restaurants, bars and shops. The TinyShack also has an awesome covered porch that's perfect to enjoy a cocktail or two, or coffee in the morning on. While it's a studio set up, it really felt like the perfect amount of space because of the way they've designed and decorated everything. I LOVED the beach decor throughout as well, so many cute small touches that just made it feel like the perfect beach spot. And while it's part of a larger house with other shacks, it felt and was completely private.

On top of everything, Katherine and Sam are fantastic hosts! You can tell they've thought of EVERYTHING, and worked hard to make the Rathershacks an amazing destination. We didn't get to meet Katherine because she was helping her daughter move to college, but Sam checked us in and was super awesome and friendly throughout our stay, and always said hi when we saw him around. In addition to offering recommendations in person, they also made a guide covering everything from good food to can't miss bars to bike rentals, with commentary about everything. We referenced it a lot throughout our stay, it was super helpful!

All in all, TinyShack was amazing, and Folly Beach is a one of a kind place. So much so, that the minute we pulled into the driveway after driving through town and catching glimpses of the beach, my fiance and I were already plotting how we could manage to move there lol. At the very least, we will absolutely be back every year.

Thank you Katherine and Sam for an amazing experience, we can't wait to come back!

Amazing owners and awesome location!!

  • 5 of 5

Kat and Sam were more than hospitable hosts. They gave us inside information and where to go and made us feel right at home. Just a short walk to the beach and a short walk to all the fun and food! We will definitely be coming back year after year. We found our "home away from home"

Awesome little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week at Folly Beach. The Tiny Shack is perfect for 1-2 people to chill out when you're not soaking up rays on the beach or eating some amazing food. It's quiet and quaint, very well maintained and decorated perfectly. The owners Katherine and Sam were a delight and we will stay with them again!

Wonderful Stay in Folly!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in this little gem at Folly Beach and it was absolutely perfect. Small but mighty, it has everything needed for a perfect beach getaway - comfortable bed, a rather spacious bathroom with a relaxing shower, immaculate space, convenient kitchenette, lovely outdoor patio and yard space and a cool shower outside as well. Comes with a very convenient off street parking space, plus it's a short walk to the beach as well as coffee shops and restaurants. Highly recommend for others and we would absolutely stay here again - hopefully soon!
