Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bath One Block To The Beach

Me, You and the Sea…if that’s your definition of the perfect Folly Beach vacation then the Chill Shack is the one for you.

The smallest of our Shacks, the Chill Shack is also the coziest…and some might argue the most charming and romantic as well. There’s plenty of room for two with the Queen sized bed. 2 heartbeats maximum.

The Chill Shack is located right in the middle of all the Rathershack action. Like the other Shacks, you are just a short walk to the beach but you can also sit outside your Shack and lounge in the sun in your private fenced courtyard.

While the Chill Shack is cozy, you will lack for nothing. The open kitchen and living room allows you to interact with your guests while you make dinner in our fully equipped kitchen. Chances are good though that you may prefer fixing your dinner on the gas grill that’s right outside your front door and dining al fresco under the Folly Beach stars.

Don’t let the small size fool you — the Chill Shack has everything you need for a perfect Folly Beach vacation.

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 Charleston Area

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.

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was PERFECT for our weekend getaway to Folly Beach/Charleston! It was perfect size for me and my husband, with all the amenities we needed to make it feel like home. Katt and Sam were great hosts, who were close enough if we needed them but otherwise didn't bother us. I wished we could have stayed longer and we hope to come back soon to visit.

If you are looking for a charming little house that's right by the beach and only steps to downtown Folly, then this house is for you!!

Prefect getaway place for two

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy space two blocks from the beach and a 10 minute walk from restaurants. Nicely decorated, comfy bed, full galley kitchen. Plus there is a small well groomed fenced in back yard (private) that is shared with another unit...but we felt like we had it to ourselves. Outside shower, beach chairs, towels, really the prefect beach getaway.

Awesome week!!!

  • 5 of 5

The chill shack is an amazing get away for two. It was a short walk to the beach, downtown Folly and a very short drive to downtown Charleston. The shack had everything we needed for a cozy beach get away. The sites were spectacular, we recommend the Angel Oak and Magnolia Plantation. We highly recommend this shack for anyone staying on Folly Island.

The absolute BEST place to stay in Folly Beach, SC

  • 5 of 5

If I could give 10 Stars to the "Chillshack", I would! Couldn't have picked a better place to stay during our vacation in Folly Beach, SC. It is so clean and so cute and such a beautiful area! It is everything you see on the website, and more! Owners, Katt and Sam make sure you have everything you could possibly need. Kitchen is fully equipped and towels and linens are included along with beach towels, beach chairs and beach umbrella. Included is a gas grill and patio area for cooking and eating out. Unit is so comfortable and cozy. We had a one minute walk to the beach and only a couple of blocks from stores and restaurants, and bars. Also, Charleston was only 10 minutes away. Katt and Sam are right there if you need anything or if there is a problem. And they are awesome! Will never stay anywhere else than one of the "Rathershacks" when at Folly Beach, SC.
