Edisto Beach house description

Our special vacation home on Edisto combines the best of having a dock on a quiet tidal creek plus ocean views and a short walk or bike ride to the beach. From our front porch, enjoy beautiful views of the ocean across the marsh -- and the creek, marsh and great sunsets from our back deck. Stately oaks overhang the creek, and our dock is just steps away from our door. Eddingsville Beach is one of the most quiet and pristine beaches ever! It is a get-away for relaxation at its best, whatever the season.

The house is designed with comfort and family times in mind. A large screened porch extends across the front of the house. With ceiling fans, teak dining table, comfortable rattan sofa and wooden rocking chairs, the porch provides a wonderful spot to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening.

The large great room, with vaulted ceiling, heart pine floors, wood-burning fireplace and sectional sofa, has a look of casual elegance. Flat screen TV with internet connection and Dish Network satellite/DVD player provide entertainment. The unique glass-top dining table, which seats 8, sits on the base of a huge grapevine and overlooks the porch.

Two master bedrooms, one on either side of the house, have king beds and doors that open to the screened porch, providing comfort and privacy for two couples. The third bedroom has two single beds, and the fourth has two bunk beds (double bed and double futon on the bottom and single beds on top). The house has two bathrooms, with walk-in showers, located on each side of the house in between two bedrooms. There also is an enclosed outdoor shower with dressing area – great for showering after a day at the beach.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy cooking, including low country cookbooks, wine glasses, china, lots of pots and pans, blender -- even a Belgian waffle maker. A breakfast bar with four barstools joins the kitchen with the great room.

In the backyard overlooking the creek and marsh, we have a wooden double swing and a hammock under the oaks for reading (or napping!). The back deck has a picnic table and comfortable Tropitone chairs, with the creek and marsh beyond. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the creek and marsh, watch the amazing sunsets, and just relax! Wildlife is abundant – fish, crab and shrimp in the creek, squirrels scampering through the trees, herons in the marsh, pelicans flying overhead, dolphins occasionally swimming up the creek, and Painted Buntings feeding at our bird feeders. For bird enthusiasts, it’s truly paradise!

You can get to the beach, about a third of a mile away, down the Jeremy Cay causeway through this quiet gated community. Access to the beach and Jeremy Cay is through the pedestrian gate. (Sorry, the covenants of our Jeremy Cay membership do not allow us to permit guests to have golf cart access; the covenants reserve this only for owners). Two adult beach bikes are included with the house rental; others can be rented locally, as can jon boats or kayaks, which allow beach access via the creek. If you have your own small boat, there is a landing located on Frampton Creek to put in, and you can dock it at our dock. Please note that property owners along the creek request that no jet skis be used in the creek.

The beach is very secluded and quiet, and many times when we walk out, we’re the only people on the beach. Eddingsville Beach is great for searching for shells, shark’s teeth, fossils and even pottery from the plantation summer homes that occupied the beach in the 1800's, until they were demolished by the hurricane of 1893. (We have several books about the history – and the ghosts – of Edisto Island and Eddingsville Beach for the history buffs in your group.)

Edisto Beach is five miles from the house; there you can pick up groceries at the Piggly Wiggly, enjoy several great seafood restaurants or Buck’s Pizza, play golf and tennis, or visit the Edisto Beach State Park. Charleston is an hour away for shopping, history and terrific restaurants of all kinds. In Charleston, there is a wide variety of things to do, like horse-drawn carriage rides through the historic city, the South Carolina Aquarium, Fort Sumter, the Charleston RiverDogs baseball team, etc. Savannah, Georgia, is about an hour and a half away.

This is a great vacation spot for you if you are looking for relaxing days on the beach and quiet evenings eating great food and having quality “family time.” We have books to enjoy, cards and games to play, puzzles to put together, and movies to watch, and wireless internet for your laptop. We hope that you will come and experience the peace, quiet and comfort that come with this special home. We know it won’t take long for you to unwind – and that it will be hard to leave – because that’s the lure of Edisto for us all.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Jim and Elizabeth Berry, and their children, Tripp and Cathryn, live in Summerville, SC. We love Edisto and have been visiting there since we were kids. Our home on Edisto Island, Berry'd Treasure, is a wonderful spot for quiet family vacations.

                  Why the Owner Chose Edisto Beach:
                  We fell in love with this area of Edisto because of the view of the ocean from the front and the tidal creek at our back door. It's a wonderful combination -- and provides the 'best of both worlds.'
