  • A gem of a home

    "My wife and 2 daughters stayed here for Spring Break in April of 2014. I made all of the reservations online and had really no clue, outside of the photos, what to expect as I had never used this system before. Wow. This property is not only beautiful it is perfectly situated next to the beach and away from lots of people. It is in a quiet cul-de-sac inside of the Wild Dunes resort. The owners are very professional, accommodating, and friendly. The resort staff is top notch. As I write this review I struggle to find any issues we had while we were there. I struggle because we had none and this was the best family vacation we have ever had. Coming back to this beautiful home everyday was pure pleasure. We will be back!"

  • Easter Stay

    "This house was better in person than in the pictures. It was well decorated and very clean. The smoke detector battery needed to be changed and a person came out right away to do it. They were very responsive to our needs. We also took full advantage of the amenity cards, grill and the bikes; we rode everywhere! I'd love to see a headboard added to the 3rd bedroom bed and the small drywall repair done in the upstairs bathroom but nothing to fuss about. all 3 generations of my family enjoyed their stay. Thank you!"

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    "Hi Mary and Richard, When we leave Mary's Dream I ALWAYS have the intention to hand write you both and thank you for sharing Mary's Dream detailing how wonderful she is and what a sensational time we had and how generous you are to share her BUT then we arrive back home and typically have snow to contend with and that rolls right into spring then summer and then before I know it I am thinking about a vacation at Mary's Dream again only to realize I never got that thank you note out! I am tardy getting around to thinking about our early spring vacation AGAIN this year but nonetheless wanted to touch base and find out what availability Mary's Dream may have in February or March. Thank you, thank you, thank you both for always being so generous with the availability and keeping the rate low such that we can afford to get out of NY in the darkest part of the year and enjoy some respite in "our" home in Edisto. I hope you both are doing well and had a wonderful, wonderful summer! ~Christina"

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.
