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!!

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 apartment 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 and check them out.

What makes this apartment unique

All bars on Folly Beach are within walking distance. Plus the house was pink...and we decided to keep the color.

The Sweetest Tiny one bedroom on Folly.

Fort Mill, SC

Just as advertised - a one bedroom rental across the street from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The Tiny Shack was just what we needed for our first visit to Folly Beach. We knew we would not be inside very much because we wanted to explore Folly. A place to shower, change our clothes, and get a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed was all that we required for this trip. The room was really clean and nicely decorated. We made use of the small dresser in the closet which allowed us to empty our suitcase and put it back in the car. We didn't use the small convenience kitchen for meals, but the little sink was very handy when we both were trying to get ready at the same time. The bathroom was brand new and the glass door, tiled wall shower was a pleasant surprise for such a little place. Outside, we had our own private yard and two comfortable chairs. We also were given beach towels, sand chairs, and a beach umbrella to use at the beach. The beach entrance was directly across the street so we didn't have to carry our gear very far. We ate at Snapper Jack's, The Lost Dog, and Bowen's Island and enjoyed every meal. Parking is tight on Folly, so we were really pleased that we had our own parking space. Katherine takes pride in her properties and if the Tiny Shack is any indication, her rentals are all meticulous and well appointed. You will enjoy your stay at a Rather Shacks property.

Perfect Comfy Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay & enjoyed everything about it!

The Tiny Shack is tiny, but it was completely perfect for a mini couples vacation. If we visit the area again, we will definitely stay at the tiny shack :)

Great little place.

  • 5 of 5

Katherine and Sam were great! They greated us at the property and showed us around and gave us some insight about the town. The property is just as described and was perfect for my wife and I. I would recommend this listing to everyone and plan to stay here again when we visit the Charleston area.

Cozy accommodations close to beach and town

  • 5 of 5

Owners Sam and Katherine have created a tastefully decorated compact space perfect for a couples getaway.

We loved the outdoor seating area and it's close proximity to beautiful Folly Beach.

We also loved walking to town and enjoying all it had to offer.

Our favorites were Jack of Cups and The Lost Dog.

Thanks Sam and Kat for being such gracious hosts and creating such a cool space
