Edisto Beach house description

The Chaika is a lovely house on a secluded lot at the end of a street with no other house adjacent and no thru traffic. Beautiful live oak in front gives a nice view out the glassed-in porch. Only a short 5-minute walk to the beach on a rarely-used sandy drive. 4 bedrooms with beds for 10 people comfortably, plus a full-size futon on the enclosed glass porch. 2 full baths plus private shower downstairs. Large open area in center of house to gather - spacious kitchen, dining area, and living room all connected and open. A great house for families and friends to connect!
Equipped with reverse osmosis water filter, but also close to water tower for drinking water supply. High speed WiFi. Everything laid out and furnished for simplicity and convenience.
The family that owns this house has been visiting Edisto for over 30 years, so there are many fond memories and love poured into this property. We welcome renters who are looking forward to building some great memories of time with family and friends in this lovely setting. It was first newly listed in 2012 - looking forward now to repeat guests in our third season!

Edisto Beach

Car: Recommended

Edisto is a wonderful, relaxing family beach without the crowds, traffic, noise, (and costs!) of other SC beaches. Great for beach combing, early morning walks, lovely sunsets over the sound, and pleasant, homey restaurants. Only 45 minutes to all the sites and activities of Charleston, definitely a trip worth making on one of the days here. Our family loves the Gilligan's Seafood just off Rt 17 toward John's Island.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: Our family has been vacationing at Edisto for nearly 30 years. When moving to Asia in 1996 to serve as missionaries, we sold our home in Kentucky and bought this house on Edisto where my parents had retired. Upon returning to the USA, we decided to keep the home so we, our family, and others could continue to enjoy Edisto Beach. We now live in the Atlanta area where we both work in the home office of our mission agency. We travel a lot with our work - the above photo was taken in Brazil. We love oceans, wherever we travel! We have four young adult children, one of whom is married. They all have many fond memories of times at Edisto. We named the house Chaika to connect our love of the beach with the local language (Russian) that we spoke while living overseas. Chaika means Seagull, and was also the name of a hotel in the city where we lived.

Why Edisto Beach:
We like the quietness and family, noncommercial atmosphere of Edisto Beach. The house Chaika complements that by being very comfortable, relatively secluded yet convenient to the beach, laid out perfectly for being together to enjoy a meal, a game of cards, a movie, or evening conversation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The live oak in the front yard is beautiful. You can enjoy seeing it out the front windows while drinking morning coffee on the glassed-in porch or sit on the wood swing attached to the tree. You'll see deer prints in the drive and often will spot deer near the house in the evenings. This house invites relaxation and community. Come build some good memories at Chaika!
