Property description

A very warm welcome to Edisto Island and your beach vacation home, Sea Cloud! The Sea Cloud name originated from the marriage between and subsequent contraction of the Seabrook and McCloud family names. Their mansion, sited on an antebellum cotton plantation here on the island, was the original Sea Cloud. Our prestigious home was built in 1995 by Al Gleaton and Commander R.H. (Hugh) Belser. We are, as you can imagine, proud owners and sincerely appreciate your patronage.
Sea Cloud features four equally sized bedrooms. They have either a King (1) or Queen bed (3). There are two bedrooms on each side of the main salon, separated by a full bathroom which is accessed via the hallway connecting the bedrooms. Each bedroom has a separate mirrored vanity and large sink. The spacious upstairs loft level runs the entire length of the house and has four more beds (2 queens and 2 twins), a sunny children's play area, and one very large bathroom with double vanity, skylight and full bath with shower enclosure.
The vaulted-ceiling main salon combines a living room, dining room and a well equipped kitchen. The 160 square foot screened deck, directly attached to the kitchen, is carpeted and has a second full sized refrigerator for your extra drinks. The open back deck was designed and built around a 40 foot tall ancient live oak tree. There are two private, walk-in shower stalls (with hot and cold water) on ground level and a large barrel-style charcoal BBQ grill. The house, due to the building code, is built 10 feet off the ground. This helps capture the ocean breeze and allows completely covered parking underneath the house for 6 large cars. The yard is shaded by mature palmetto and pine trees and where the owners practice golf shots with wedges and chippers.
The street in front of our house, Myrtle Street, is parallel to Palmetto Boulevard, the main drag on Edisto Beach. Being one street over is ideal for two reasons: 1) it's much quieter and 2) it's safe for children to play in the front or back yard.
Whaley's Restaurant, one of several lively locals places, is five blocks away, down Myrtle--literally walking distance. They feature live music and have the best hamburgers on Edisto!
Rental week is Saturday to Saturday during the summer months. Only weekly rentals in the high season. Please note that we do not provide linens, but there is a nearby source on the island. Unlimited Internet Service.

The Plantation Golf Course, is a 5 minute drive from Sea Cloud ! Tee times are easily obtained by calling (843) 869 1111.The gorgeous course is impeccably maintained and has a fully equipped pro-shop, with very friendly staff and a sophisticated restaurant-bar adjoining the 1st tee box. If you're a golfer, you'll be in heaven !

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: The Belsers and Gleatons are: Karin, a special education teacher, Hugh, a retired naval officer, and Harold Jeffcoat (Al) Gleaton. Karin and Al were introduced by brother Hugh when he and Al worked together in Columbia in the 1970's. Karin and Hugh Belser graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1974 and 1977 respectively. While attending 'Carolina', it was our Spring Break ritual to book large party houses on Edisto Island and gather our friends for a week of beach fun. That tradition continued during the 80's and 90's. In the late summer of 1994, they discovered and bought a wooded lot on Myrtle Street on a beautiful Sunday afternoon of a long June weekend. Karin's husband, Al Gleaton, a well known Columbia home builder, began to build Sea Cloud in 1995. It was his masterpiece and our pride and joy. As Karin is fond of quoting, 'The beach is where you go to slow down; Edisto is where you go to stop'.

Why the Owner Chose Edisto Beach:
Though there are many rental properties at Edisto Beach few can match Sea Cloud for comfort, utility, and value. First of all the house is thoughtfully designed, solidly built and well insulated. Secondly, we personally manage the property. Finally, it's a very big house where four couples can choose to spread out or congregate in the open main salon/dining area. Our fine patrons (over half are repeat visitors) are our best advertising. Their testimonials emphasize the care and attention we give them while they visit our 'home away from home.' Capital improvements in the recent past include new hardwood floors, replacement front deck landing, several new beds, two new television sets, new A/C system and kitchen stove. Sea Cloud air conditioning ducting was professionally brushed, scrubbed, and cleaned 15 March 2014.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sea Cloud is an architectural gem featuring a double staircase leading to a 40 foot wide veranda. The front porch has several comfortable padded chairs, two tables and chaise lounge. The screened porches in the front and rear look onto a shady backyard with lush St. Augustine grass. We're proud of the craftsmanship and thoughtful design of our beach house. For example, Sea Cloud has a separate mirrored vanity and wash basin in each bedroom, plus hot and cold water in the two downstairs outdoor shower enclosures. The entire top level of the interior features a length-of-the-house loft area with five beds for the younger set. We also have a second full-sized refrigerator on the back porch for cold beverages.
