  • Fantastic

    "Our small company had its staff retreat at this lovely location and it was just wonderful. The house was restful and beautiful- a great environment to foster creativity and planning. It was large enough that our families could stay as well, which made it especially nice. We were incredibly blessed by this place!"

  • So lovely, can't wait to go back!

    "We stayed 8 nights in Carol's cottage, with our 2 kids (3 and 4.5 years). This home was great - just perfect for our family. Very clean, and had everything we needed. We rented bikes from the Nature Center for the week, so it was a very quick ride to get to either the beach or splash park each day. Even on foot, it's only about a 5 minute walk, with shady trees most of the way. Everyone we met on the island, including residents, were very friendly and helpful. We met the next door neighbors and folks from 2 doors down early in our stay, and then saw them a few more times throughout the week. They were welcoming, and gave us helpful recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Our extended family rented a cottage across the street, and I think Kiawah was a perfect place to gather! We spent more time at the beach and pool, than any vacation we've ever been on. It was so easy, relaxed, and fun - and we hope to go back very soon. Carol was great to work with, and I would definitely recommend her cottage to friends/family. We hope to go back very soon."

  • Beach House

    "Our stay in this beach house was just wonderful! The kitchen is fully stocked, the bedrooms have plenty of room and the screened porch is great. We loved the comfortable furniture. The house was very clean upon our arrival. We will definitely return to this house for our next vacation."

  • Fabulous beach house close to Charleston!!!

    "We enjoyed a wonderful extended weekend at this incredible beach house! Roughly 30 minutes outside of Charleston, this property is located in a quiet strip along the Isle of Palms seashore. The pool and hot tub really sealed the deal with the family, and we also enjoyed walking down the beach to local restaurants for lunch. It really felt like a home rather than a lightly-equipped rental property. We really could have moved in for the summer!"

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.
