  • Great Location and Very Comfortable!

    "We enjoyed our stay in this Sparrow Pond cottage very much. The cottage was clean and neat, with plenty of towels and bedding available. We like to cook together and found the casseroles, tongs and a sharp knife lacking. Also the quantities of silverware were slim for the 5 of us. Other than those things (which can be remedied by bringing our own next time), we were very comfortable. The proximity to the pool and beach is hard to beat so a couple inconveniences were easily overlooked. We ended up having great weather even though the weather report for the week was about 40% chance of rain almost every day. The rain came at night most days and did not hamper our outdoor activities. We did not need the sofabed, but that would be a great addition for larger parties. The dining room with the wall of windows is very relaxing. There were plenty of tools for sand castle builders, extra boogie boards, and an assortment of beach chairs (well used). We would love to rent this cottage again!"

  • What a week!

    "We stayed here for our 35th college reunion week and simply could not have chosen a better place. The layout of the house and its location are perfect for a larger group of family and/or friends. The themes throughout the house added a lot of character and brought us a lot of laughter. The fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom was especially appreciated by our, uh, more mature group. The large common areas (basically the whole second floor is kitchen, dining and great room) allowed us to congregate and spend wonderful times together. From coffee looking at the ocean in the morning to cocktails looking at the ocean in the evenings, this place is perfect. We’ll be back next year!"

  • Nice place

    "We didn't realize that some things like toilet paper weren't included but this was our own fault for not reading the agreement closely enough. Nice place and roomy."

  • Very nice

    "Very much enjoyed this comfortable home. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and there were many nice places to sit and enjoy the views depending on the time of day. In the mornings we sat and drank coffee on the back porch overlooking the waterway and in the evening the top floor balcony was the perfect place to enjoy the ocean breezes which watching the golfers on the golf course. The walk to the beach is a little long with small children but there was plenty of parking spaces offered closer to the beach. Overall we would definitely go back to this welcoming home. The owner was also very helpful in providing information and sharing her love of this beautiful island."

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.
