About the property

Our Largest Shack 2 Bedroom 2 Bath

The Surf Shack

It’s a bittersweet offering that you are able to stay in one of our newest shacks. You see the Surf Shack was the unit WE lived in for 3 summers. We chose it because as you’ll see it is the best on our property-with 2 good sized bedrooms, each with their own full bath. We lived and loved every inch of it. From the front yard which has full afternoon sun, and is protected from the wind for those marginal beach days, to the high fence and overgrown vines you can pull up a chair and catch the shade on those 98 degree humid July afternoons. It has the biggest grill on property for you to fire up the burgers and steaks to perfection. In addition, you have an outdoor shower tucked away to wash off the salt and sand after a day at the beach. But it’s the INSIDE that we added all the little touches that will make you fall in love with her. With big windows facing south and west you can be flooded with sunshine (or draw the shades as you wake up on the couch with a well -earned hangover). For a touch of nostalgia you have our ORIGINAL Rathershacks sign in the vaulted ceiling living room. Also, you have one of our very cool dual headed fans to keep you comfortable and enhance the central air (let us know when you figure out which button makes it spin). The kitchen island was made from reclaimed wood from an 1860’s tobacco barn and is vintage South Carolina. We were going to take it with us to our new house across the street but it’s too darn heavy, so you win. All the appliances were upgraded to stainless steel so there is an air of Five Star luxury to your kitchen experience. You can’t miss our custom designed sunglasses + car key holder and sunscreen supply shelf—both are needed nooks for a vacation at the beach. It is our master bedroom we will miss the most…It gets morning sun, and you can watch the squirrels play on the lattice fence outside on most mornings. Our headboard is an old fireplace mantle found upstate in a 1905 Victorian house that we meticulously restored. It is the romantic centerpiece of our home, and this old mantle keeps her secrets. We painted it 49 shades of VERY LIGHT gray-nothing crazy-- so we hope you enjoy yourselves thoroughly! The second bedroom is adorned with a nautical theme and you will feel your inner ocean when you snooze. Both bathrooms have all new tile and fixtures so you can clean up in luxury as you head out on the town. With you as our guest, we know she will be in good hands.

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 take a look at, go to HomeAway.com and check them out.

What makes this cottage unique

Amazing!! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at SurfShack! The place was so cute, clean, and the location was great!! It looks just like the pictures and everything they describe is what it is! Katt, the owner, was so sweet and extremely attentive as well as great with communicating. The location is perfect to get to the beach as well as center street on Folly. The yard was kept beautifully and we loved using the outdoor shower. Katt and her husband provide you with everything you need in the house and for the beach (towels, beach chairs, umbrella, etc). It was the best stay we have had on Folly (we have been going to Folly for many years) and we will definitely be returning!!

Cottage was perfect! Location also!

  • 5 of 5

I would change nothing about this cottage. Everything was so simple to do. Life’s problems definitely seemed to go away here. People were friendly and businesses take care of you very well. The owners, Katt and Sam, were super nice and helpful. I would come back and will tell friends and family about the Rather Shacks!

Great location on Folly Beach!

  • 4 of 5

2 blocks from Folly Beach, with very easy beach access. Walking distance to Centre Street, and 15-20 minute drive to downtown, West Ashley, etc. Great location!

Perfect size for us. Extremely clean. Greeted by the hostess, who lives close by. Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. It is about 15 minutes from downtown and an easy drive into town. Even though the beach is one block over, we were here while the temperatures were in the 30s, not good beach weather for us. It would be great during the summer. We also enjoyed that we could walk up to the restaurants in the evenings. Very charming area. I hope we get to come back.
