  • HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    "What a perfect week we spent at "I Hope You Dance." We have stayed at many homes in Charleston/Isle of Palms/Sullivans Island and Wild Dunes. This house is one of the best! It is beautifully furnished and extremely well-equipped. The weather was variable, but we enjoyed every minute! Our grandson loved the tower room and one of my sons did the "Polar Bear Plunge" in the salt pool. The short walk to the beach and the outside showers are a real treat. All of the beach chairs, bikes, and sand toys were also wonderful. It was an absolutely fabulous week and the perfect way to ring is a New Year! Thank you!"

  • A wonderful place for a family to play

    "We spent Spring Break in this lovely home! There were 8 of us and we had more than enough space. The layout of the house is perfect for a big group. It is open and airy yet structured in a way that everyone can be together or take time for themselves in a comfortable way. With the decks, porch, and sitting room everyone can find the space they need to read, work, or relax. Jeff was a wonderful host. He sent us all the information we needed to plan our trip before arrival. By the time we got there we had bikes rented, restaurant reservations, and excursions all planned. This made the one week we were there stress free. No guessing! Just relaxing! We could not have done that without his help. The island and surrounding area is amazing. We had 4 teenage boys and they were engaged every minute. The resort has structured activities and there are so many areas to explore. Not one dull moment. We all agreed that more time was needed to do what we wanted to do! We are so pleased that we chose this home and this host!"

Edisto Island Travel Tips

Just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, is Edisto Island, a member of the Sea Islands. The land was originally home to the historic Edisto people, a Native American sub-tribe of the Cusabo. It also has a deep Gullah history, a culture preserved by the African Americans who were some of the island's first inhabitants.

Edisto Beach Attractions

This coastal paradise has plenty of beach to offer visitors. As a family-oriented community, many of the those who stay in the island city of Edisto Beach enjoy walks on the beach, jogging, biking, kayaking and golf. There are 38 public beaches in Edisto Beach that can be accessed from each intersection on Palmetto Boulevard. Loggerhead Sea Turtles live in the community and, if you're lucky enough to see one or their nest, be sure to stay away and don't touch.

Edisto Beach State Park has the state's longest system of handicapped accessible hiking and biking trails. When you venture out here, you'll go through the maritime forest. Other activities available at the park include surf fishing, boating, birding and picnicking. There's also the Edisto Interpretive Center that teaches visitors about the ACE Basin estuarine reserve using interactive displays. The ACE Basin is one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the Atlantic Coast and encompasses 350,000 acres. It's full of natural beauty such as wetlands, hardwood forests, riverine systems and marshes.

There are two historic sites on Edisto Island, including Seaside Plantation House and Spanish Mount Point. The plantation home is formerly known as Locksley Hall and was built in 1810. Spanish Mount Point is located at Edisto Beach State Park and is bordered by water and marsh on three sides. The mount stands at nearly 10 feet tall and 88 feet long.

Things to Do

Golf: Visitors who want to hit the green while in town should head to Plantation Course at Edisto. The course is the only one on the island and has a history that dates back to 1973 when it was known as Oristo and The Edisto Beach Golf Club. The springtime months of March, April and May are great times to golf here when temperatures head back up to the mid-70s, however, the fall is when it's best as the days stay warm and cools off in the evening.

Dining: A range of culinary options are available when you stay in Edisto Beach. You can dine at Billow Street Pizza, Flowers Oyster Co., Flowers Seafood Co. and Edisto Seafood. Additional eateries include Edisto Pavilion Restaurant, Buck's Pizza, McConkey's Jungle Shack, Old Post Office Restaurant and Whaley's. Try cooling off with a treat from Sunny at the Beach Snow Cones or Island Video & Ice Cream.

Shops: Don't forget to pick up something from one of Edisto Beach's gift shops to remember your visit. There's Claw Daddy's Gift Shop & Beach Supplies, Sandy's Gifts, Shore Thing Gift Shop, Safe Gallery & Gifts and Edistonian Gift Shop & Gallery. If you prefer to take home a locally-made piece of art, check out Crafts By The Sea, Douglas Grier Art & Frame Co., Edisto Art Guild and Sage Studio Gallery.
