Recent Edisto Beach reviews
Great week in Edisto!
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My extended family of 8 (6 adults, 2 children) enjoyed our stay in Beach Bums. We chose it because of the elevator as my father had been having back problems. This was definitely a huge bonus as it made move-in and move-out so much easier. The only complaint was with the mattresses. They are very firm, so a pillow-top cover as an option would have been nice. Also, while we were there the tap water had an abnormally bad smell. I'm accustomed to "beach water", but this was unlike any other time we've been there. I don't know if it was this way all over the island or just in our house, but the good thing is, there is a tap for filtered water in the kitchen sink that made the otherwise unusable water perfectly suitable for cooking and even making coffee and tea. What a lifesaver that was! The home is lovely, and the layout is great. The nice big kitchen and large kitchen table made meal prep and dining easy. We had a golf cart, so the one block trip to the beach was a breeze. I even walked it once, and it was not bad at all. Jungle Road is busy, but the house has a fence out front so there's no worry of the kids running into the street. Some traffic noise, but not too bad. Speaking of golf carts, if you take one or rent one, know the rules. We got pulled over and issued a warning citation from the Edisto police for a number of violations. They were stopping carts left and right, which seemed new since last year.

We have just received your review. Thank you for sharing your experience. We value your feedback! We are so pleased that your family enjoyed the comfort and convenience found at Beach Bums on Edisto Beach. The tap water is extremely salty throughout the beach so it is so nice when homeowners decide to put reverse osmosis systems in their homes. We would love to be your host on Edisto during any season. We are always a phone call away!

"This was our first rental of this property. The cottage was lovely & well provisioned. It was literally less than 30 steps from the water's edge. When not on the beach, we were on the screened and covered back porch in the rocking chairs. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was an additional convenience. We used the charcoal grill twice, and it was in excellent condition. We met Grace, the owner, when we went down to preview the unit. She's lovely!"

"My husband and I had a wonderful weekend stay at this nice house. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with! The short walk across the street to the beach access was not an issue. We could even still hear the ocean surf from the lovely deck! The house was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Breakfast at the Sea Cow is a must! Thanks for a great relaxing stay!"

"Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation on your property. The description and pictures on this site do not do this property justice! The added multi level deck is so awesome, and the outdoor showers were very nice too. The house was very dog friendly for our Golden Doodle, and utilizing the outdoor wash station below was perfect for keeping the sand out of the home. The best part was the screened in porch below the main deck. We could all relax with a cold one for a bit and dry off before going inside, it was so nice.
The place was very clean all over, and we were very pleased with all the amenities. We will DEFINITELY be looking to rent this place again when we return Edisto Island!!"
