  • Great Location

    "We loved the location of this house, a quick walk to the beach with breathtaking views of the ocean. Definitely a little wear and tear on the house but everything was still comfortable and clean. LOVED the screened porch. Bunk bed room is small, be aware, we had to rent a crib to use and put it in this room and it was SUPER tight. Otherwise the space was fine in the house, we had two wee little ones and three adults and everyone was comfortable. Ocean Point is a great location, nice pool and very quiet and private."

  • beach trip family vacation

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay. The rooms are perfectly spread out for families. There was plenty of space all around. The kitchen is overall pretty well stocked. The fridge is rather small and the dishwasher could be updated. Walking to the beach was rather adventurous, (@7min walk) but didn't detour us from going every day. We would come back in a heartbeat."

  • Exceptional Week!

    "We loved our stay at Pelican Watch -- our second visit to a Pelican Watch villa. The unit is beautifully decorated, well appointed, and extremely comfortable. It is really the perfect beach vacation. With lots of walks, beach days, day trips to Charleston, Club access, reading and evening cocktails on the balcony, our week of rest and relaxation flew by. When you have a lovely balcony with a perfect view, and a fabulous Harris Teeter in the Freshfield's Village, there is no need to dine out. However, there are lots of great dining options in the Village and Bohicket Marina, the Beach Club; plus Charleston's dining options are endless and excellent. Everyone is extremely friendly. While on a Sunday beach walk, we particularly enjoyed talking to many members of the Turtle Patrol as they helped sea turtle hatchlings make their first attempts into the ocean. Daily dolphin sightings and the deer that are everywhere help to the make Island truly magical. Potential guests should know that the King bed in the unit is extremely firm. As well, future visitors should know that there are no sidewalks on Seabrook Island. Pedestrians and cyclists share the road with motorists, who are expected to drive slowly and courteously. We found that many motorists do not abide by the spirit of "share the road" and we had several close calls on our daily walks, even though my husband and I were walking single file and hugging the curb. The service provided by Seabrook Exclusives and Pam Harrington Exclusives was top notch. Thank you to the villa owners for sharing their beautiful unit with us (and our precious pet). Thank you also for including Club membership at the Beach Club and Island House in the rental. The dining room at the Island House looks wonderful and we hope to try it on our next visit."

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.
