Edisto Beach cottage description

If you want the beach without the crowds, this is the escape to choose. This cabin is the only house on a scenic, oak lined road, just around the corner from the largest protected property on Edisto, Botany Bay Wildlife Management Area. Though only 10 minutes from the grocery store and restaurants of Edisto Beach, you will feel a world away. A private landing is at the end of the road where you can rent kayaks or take a boat to a private beach for the day. Bird watching is unsurpassed here and just sitting on the porch you will hear owls, tanagers, turkeys and more!

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About: I am a lowcountry native who returned home to start an ecotour business so I could share my love of this area with others. This property is a dream come true for me and I look forward to sharing it with you.

                          Why Edisto Beach:
                          To own a home surrounded by 4,000 acres of protected land is a life's dream. Botany Bay Plantation is a SC gem and this cabin has a unique placement, right on the edge of forests, beaches, and marshes that will always be protected. You can't get any closer for an overnight stay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          At Chateau Relaxo, the goal is relaxation without interruption. The 500 sq. ft screened porch is a room unto itself and I often bird by ear here in the morning and evening. Whether in front of the fire or on the porch, peace and tranquility reign. We have intentionally not added internet or phones. One television is hooked up to an antennae for local service if you desire. The idea is to get away. If you need these devices, some cell services work here (Verizon has the best reception).
