Overview

Photos and Description of this Folly Beach holiday cottage

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 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.

REMEMBER ONLY TWO HEARTBEATS (GUEST). Babies, kids, adults all have heartbeats.

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

Perfect for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

This tiny one bedroom "shack" Met all of our needs and expectations. It was very clean, comfortable, safe and conveniently located to the beach, restaurants and shops of Folly. The private yard was a great bonus and provided a place to store our kayaks. The owners were readily available, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The off street parking was awesome. We will look at Rathershacks for future trips to Folly.

Tiny was perfect. Bigger is not always better.

  • 5 of 5

Well kept property less than 1 min. Walk from the beach. Tiny had everything we needed down to beach towels and silverware. Katherine and her husband were excellent hosts. This was the perfect spot for a couples getaway. Tiny holds a special spot in my heart.

Sweet, small space.

  • 4 of 5

The Tiny Shack has all you need for an easy beach get away. It is small so if you are 2 people be sure you share space well! Very clean, nicely decorated and the private yard was great! Made the whole place feel bigger. Our one disappointment was that the bikes are no longer available. We would have brought our own if we had been forewarned.
