Great Extended Family Beach House
"We went to Edisto for a family celebration. The party was just down the street. Two of our grown sons and one of our grandchildren plus a great niece stayed with us. We loved this beach house named Beach Ball. It was perfect for our family. It had lots of extras and was clean and a great layout with two bedrooms and a bath on each side of the main living area. We ate dinner on the deck and enjoyed the ocean breezes the first night. It was easy to get to the beach and such a convenient location. We played outside games and the children loved the inside toys and games. The owners manage this house themselves and made the whole process easy. We also own and manage a beach home in another state so it was nice for us to experience someone else who really cares about their home and their guests. I would give our entire experience from start to end A++. Our only regret was that we could only stay from Thursday to Monday. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We certainly recommend it to others and hope to come again."

"Edisto is a magical place that I hope to return to. So very laid back, most relaxing vacation I've ever had. Moondragger is the perfect vacation home, it lives so well, I swear it cleans itself, either that or my kids were secretly picking up all the time when I wasn't looking....Nah..it must clean itself! It's a magical house! Loved the breezes and the nature all around. We had fun catching blue crabs and preparing them as a family. The tidal creek and marshes are a wonder, almost as fabulous as the ocean. We ventured into Charleston one day, and it was nice, but couldn't wait to get back to Edisto and the Moondragger. It's a nice walk to the beach, and we did it often, but our serious beaching days we went to the state park, utilized the tucked away shelter far back to the left as you face the water. Couldn't even believe our luck...it is up for grabs when not reserved! Best beach spot ever! Thank you for sharing your home, we would for sure like to rent it again:)"

"The first thing we were impressed with when inquiring about renting High Seas, was the quick response from the owner. The communication throughout the rental process was positively great! Any questions we had about the home or the area were quickly answered. I am thankful for the owner interest in their guests. A lot of thoughtfulness is put into the amenities provided with this home which sure takes a burden off travelers. Upon arriving we found High Seas to be just as beautiful as it appears in the photos - if not more so. It's truly a beautiful roomy home with much character and hospitality. Very comfortable furnishings and everything you need to make you feel "right at home." Every imaginable kitchen gadget, an abundance of dishware, cookware and electrical appliances are provided so we did quite a bit of cooking and grilling.
We enjoyed playing on the beach and in the ocean, searching for sea shells and shark teeth, bike rides around town and just hanging out at home. We enjoyed eating grilled shrimp (fresh off the boat) from Edisto Seafood. The atmosphere of Edisto Beach is very relaxed and family oriented. It was very easy to strike up conversation with other visiting families. There are no fast food chain restaurants at Edisto but there are plenty of unique eateries. We didn't get the opportunity to try all of them but we did enjoy the meals we had at Water Front, Sea Cow Eatery and during a rainy evening Bucks Pizza delivery.
We got to observe Turtle Patrol re-locating sea turtle eggs to a "turtle nursery" above the tide zone. The patrol ladies did an awesome job educating by-standers about the life cycle and research associated with sea turtles.
This is a great place to get away from everyday cares and enjoy a relaxing break. Thanks High Seas owners!"
