Recent Charleston Area reviews

  • Spring break at Isle of Palms

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed in this area many times but this was our first time at Sea Cabins. Overall we were happy with the property and the specific unit. Ideally the bedroom would be bigger and our unit had chairs on the balcony that were too big for that limited space. We will seriously consider staying here again."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect home for our extended family week

    "Our extended family of ten spent Thanksgiving week at this cozy, charming beach house and had an awesome time. The owners were easy to work with, answered all our questions and made the rental process effortless. The house and its location were exactly as they portray on the website. The flow of the house worked well for our family. The master bedroom is located on one side of the home and the other two bedrooms are located on the opposite side. This gave the families some distance when needed and also privacy. The open concept flow of the house works well with the kitchen being tucked around a corner. This offers some noise buffer form the living room but also allows those in the kitchen, and dining room to remain involved with family and friends in the living area. While the dining table is small for a group of 10, the dining area itself is large. A large breakfast bars does offer additional seating. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, serving pieces, and dinner ware. Linens are also stocked well. The house has two porches, one in the front and one in the back. From the front porch you can relax and feel the ocean breezes and hear the waves. It’s a very relaxing spot with plenty of seating for conversations, reading or a cup of coffee. There is also a table with seats for 4 for games or eating. Many members of our family particularly enjoyed the hammock and the naps it offered each day. The back porch overlooks the shared green space and gazebo. This porch offers some privacy and plenty of room and seating for great conversation. A small fridge is also provided for additional beverage storage. Our family has been coming to Kiawah for many years during the summer but also wanted to try it during the fall/winter months. Kiawah is different that time of year and this was the house to enjoy it in. Our family would rent this home again for summer or fall/winter."

  • Adult 55 group from Pennsylvania

    "This house lived up to almost all our expectations, and exceeded many of them. The housekeeping was perfect - we had no issues at all with the condition of the house when we arrived. The elevator, pool, hot tub, TV's, etc. all worked fine. The view from the roof/deck is wonderful, much better than we expected for a house a block off the beach. The beach on Isle of Palms is beautiful, great for sunning, walking, swimming, wading, shell hunting, fishing, all the normal things you do at the beach. There was plenty of off-street parking for six cars. Every bedroom has access to an outside deck, plus there was a deck off the main den on the third level which was a great get-together point every day. The roof deck is awesome: you see plenty of ocean, and the view of the beach is actually enhanced, made more picturesque, by the beautiful beach houses between you and the beach. I love photography, and some of my favorite photos from this trip are of ships in the distance with the beach and beach houses in the foreground. We enjoyed Charleston: the restaurants, the carriage ride through town, the market, the Confederate Museum etc. We had a good time twice at restaurants on the inlet on Shem Creek, which is in Mt. Pleasant on the way in to Charleston. On some days smaller groups with different interests and visited the market, Patriots Point, the plantations, Fort Moultrie, the Confederate Museum, Fort Sumter, the houses open to the public, the Battery, or just walked south of Broad Street to see the mansions. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all fine, although the bunk room was suitable for kids or young adults and a little less than perfect for seniors (which you might expect) and our group was all seniors. We ate most of our meals out, but we had one big breakfast together, and the dining room table was close but comfortable for all twelve of us. The pool table was not in great shape, so we decided to spend our time on things we can't do at home. There was a little confusion when I checked us in at the real estate office: the package including the keys was filed under the name of the owners, not my name, but luckily one of the ladies in the office figured it out. Add it all together and we had a wonderful time and would recommend this house highly, as well as Isle of Palms, Mt. Pleasant, and Charleston."

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.
