  • Awesome home!

    "Our family of 7 visited Seabrook Island for the first time this year and had an amazing time! The home was beautiful, well-maintained, and perfect for our family. Our favorite room was probably the large open living room that overlooked our back terrace/marsh. We had deer in our back yard every day coming from the marsh and out the front was our short 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach. Really was the best of both worlds! Our only comment for families coming is that it is not within walking distance to the beach pools if you use the amenity cards. You would have to drive or ride your bikes to get there. Overall...we loved it and would recommend the house to other families!!"

  • Great Vacation!!

    "This was our 1st trip to Kiawah Island and hopefully there will be many more!! We absolutely loved this condo/villa....It was the PERFECT location and nicely updated. Kathy was absolutely wonderful to work with and went out of her way to help with our reservation. The villa is perfect for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids (7 & 5)) don't let the 1 bedroom fool you. There was plenty of room and you never felt like you were on top of each other. The beach is literally a few steps away and having resort privileges is a must! My kids loved the Night Heron Pools. Make sure to take bikes or rent them we pretty much parked our car and took off on the bikes."

  • PERFECT!!

    "We loved this cottage - it is amazing - beautifully decorated. It has everything you need for the perfect vacation. Very close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The beds were extremely comfortable too. The few pictures on this web site do not do this cottage justice. It's beautiful! Stayed 5 nights with my husband and his 15 yr old son. The owner was very easy to work with. We would recommend this rental to anyone, and we will definitely be back. PERFECT VACATION!!"

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.
