The wind in the palms, the roar of the waves on the beach, and pelicans cruising overhead... these are just a few of the experiences that make up our vacation home on Edisto Island.
We are located on a small barrier island surrounded on three sides by tidal marshes. From the hammock on the front porch you can watch egrets and herons fishing the high tide while wood storks and pelicans soar overhead. Behind the house is a tidal creek which is wonderful for swimming, fishing, and catching shrimp and crabs. Dolphins and otters also make this creek their home and watching them pass by is a truly special experience. A picnic table and bench on the dock is perfect for early morning breakfasts or beautiful sunsets.
The beach is accessible by small boats (canoes, kayaks, etc.) via the creek, or by short walk or bike ride. A canoe is provided for renters. Edingsville Beach is a stretch of unspoiled,almost deserted beach. The town of Edingsville was the beach retreat of the plantation owners of Edisto in the 1800's until it was swept away by the Hurricane of 1893. You can still find bricks, pieces of china and bottles left from this historic community. Shells, shark teeth, and fossils are a constant source of interest for the beachcomber.
Our house has three bedrooms: the master, with a king-size bed and private bath with a huge double shower; second bedroom with queen bed; and third bedroom with two sets of bunks which sleep four (4). There is also another bathroom with a jetted tub/shower. The kitchen, dining area, and living area are all open with views of the marsh and ocean. French doors and a sliding glass door open on to the screened porch and the breeze from the ocean can keep the house cool except for the hottest summer days.
Edisto Beach is only five miles away, where one can find groceries, fine arts and crafts, restaurants, golf,tennis courts, and the Edisto Beach State Park. Charleston is forty-five minutes to the north, easily accessible for daytrips. In Charleston, the shopping and dining are superb. Carriage rides are a favorite way to hear the stories of Charleston's past and see the beautiful old homes and churches on every street. The Charleston Aquarium,strolling through the market, and boat rides to Fort Sumter make for another wonderful day in the city.
We hope that you will love our home on Edisto Island as much as we do. Play, swim, or just laze in the hammock and watch the world go by... You are on 'Edislow' time!

About the owner: We fell in love with Edisto the first time we came in 1989. We were fortunate enough to find the most unique spot on this unspoiled island and built a home for our family.
Why the Owner Chose Edisto Beach: Moondragger's name came from a shipwreck we found on Edingsville beach. The quiet, the animals, birds, and sea life and spectacular marshes make Cowpens our favorite place on the planet.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You can truly get away from every day life when at Moondragger and find the calm that we all need.
