Edisto Beach house description

OCEANFRONT HOME - 'GRANDDADDY'S' is open for booking in 2013! SUNDAY TO SUNDAY AND FULL WEEKS ONLY! This home books early with return renters so check the availability calendar which we try to keep up to date.

The Sumwalt Family Home on Edisto Island is called GRANDDADDY'S for a reason - our grandkids (and their parents - our children) LOVE this place! The beach is 75' from the front door, the children can play on the beach in easy view of the decks and the house, and 30 second trips to the house for food, toys, naps or a bathroom break are short and easy! We have a jar of sharks' teeth collected during our vacations. We awoke one morning to 108 sea turtle eggs laid right beside the front steps, under the watchful eyes of the Edisto Turtle Patrol and our grandchildren. There is a line of 'the most amazing shells ever found' sunning on the rail of the sun deck each week. We ride bikes each morning around the trails on the island and sometimes to the Sea Cow for breakfast or the the church to play basketball.

Our home is comfortable, peaceful, and designed for your privacy and enjoyment. The four bedrooms have a unique design that includes a full bathroom attached to EACH bedroom. No sharing bathrooms - a true beach luxury! The two master bedrooms on the oceanfront side have queen beds in each and picture windows to view the sea and listen to the quiet, peaceful waves. One rear room has two double beds, and the other has a queen and a bunk for the little ones. The back rooms are darker in the morning and allow for extra sleeping or naps when needed! The full kitchen allows for 'eating in' and the open layout into the den makes it easy for everyone to enjoy each others' company. The ocean is constantly present through the full picture windows in the den.

                    Granddaddy's was so wonderful and we hope to come back next year. We loved having the bedrooms away from the living area and for each to have a bath was great ! The kitchen is well supplied and has lots of books and games. The front deck is bigger than it looks in the pictures. All in all, a wonderful house !

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, families with young children.

                    Manager response: So glad you enjoyed it! Hope to see you back!

                    Our family of eight had a nice stay at this property. The layout of the house worked well for us with each couple having their own bedroom and bath. Being right on the beach was a big plus. I liked being able to go back to the house to get a drink or use the bathroom. The kitchen has everything you need. The only problem was the ice maker didn't work. We where happy with our choice of this property.

                    Recommended for: Girls getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children.

                    Manager response: Bought a new refrigerator without an ice maker. You can't make ice out of the tap water at Edisto - salty tasting.

                    Rollie, my husband and I recently spent a wonderful time at your home in Edisto.  We arrived Christmas Eve and enjoyed ourselves immensely.  How nice it was for just the two of us to spend a relaxing week together.  We'd love to return at some point in the future, and will let you know.  Happy New Year, and best regards.

                    [From the Guestbook] This was out first time to come in the fall and it was wonderful. The weather could not have been better. It has been a couple of years since we stayed at Granddaddy's but we felt like we were coming home - we do love this house. Most of our time was spent relaxing or on the porch. Of course the week went by too quickly.

                    I came here as one lady, and left as Mrs. K__ A__! We had a beautiful, small wedding on Thursday right on the beach in front of Granddaddy's! We all felt at home here! Sunrises were awesome and sunsets were breathtaking. Moon was full and beautiful at night. My husband and I are planning to come back to Granddaddy's next year for our 1st anniversary! Note: I got up the morning of our wedding, looked off the deck, and my sister had drawn a heart in the sand!

                    [From the Guestbook] Such a great week...... Edisto is a wonderful beach and Granddaddy's was the perfect home base. We appreciated the extra touches - comfy beds, feather pillows, and he best equipped kitchen that we have ever encountered! The view was amazing and conducive to long, contemplative walks. Thanks so much....

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About: Retired 60-year old Granddaddy and Daddy married to the most beautiful Grandmomma and Momma in South Carolina! Love family time, bicycle riding, golf, swimming and working out. My wife loves baking, spending time with out grandchildren, and reading. We both treasure our family and the memories we have from Edisto and our vacations and trips.

                  Why Edisto Beach:
                  My son Vernon fell in love with Edisto long ago for its peacefulness and solitude. When we visited, we thought it seemed 'like the beach was a long time ago' when we were growing up. You had to go to the beach a 'long time ago' to know what that means, but it means time to do what you want, when you want, and how you want. I rarely get out of an old t-shirt, and live on the beach when we get here. Also, people take care of things on Edisto. It's a safe, friendly, and clean place. Our grandchildren can still hop on a bike and ride into the ice cream store or get something to eat without Homeland Security having to get involved. Like it used to be. Also, this might be the best golf secret in America. Four bedrooms, four baths, four golfers - perfect! October-March almost guarantees you four to seven PERFECT weather days. The Plantation Course has weekly rates around $250 for all of the golf you want to play. Breakfast at the Sea Cow, Golf until we are tires, Naps, and then Shrimp Boils and Beverages in the evening. It doesn't get any better than that.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  My blood pressure disappears. I eat too much. I sleep too well. I am awakened each morning by a beautiful woman (my wife), or a happy grandchild ready to go to the Piggly Wiggly for bacon biscuits, or one of my grown children for a priceless walk on the beach or an unforgettable conversation. We have solved most of the problems of the world at Edisto and always leave more relaxed and refreshed.
