  • Perfect family get away

    "This house was ideal for our family vacation. There was plenty of space for everyone. The layout was perfect to accommodate the needs of all three families--including little ones & nap time. There is even a pack n play and a booster seat/high chair for the littlest ones. The kitchen is well supplied--appreciated the melamine dishes/glasses for use outside on the deck dining table. The pool & hot tub are awesome & perfect gathering spot. It's a short, easy walk to the beach. The home owner is great to work with & very responsive."

  • Family vacation

    "We had such a great time at your house it was the perfect fit for our large group! The grandkids (2 & 4) and adults all loved being steps away from the beach, we saw dolphins swimming close by and starfish when the tide was out making it that much more exciting! The house was perfect for us with room for everyone to sleep, huge table for meals and thank heaven for your big screen so our Red Wing hockey fans could watch their games! We never felt crowded found it was the perfect location close enough to downtown and tourist attractions but kind of in our own little world away from the crowds. Don't miss brunch at the Lost Dog Cafe and Hanks for a special dinner."

  • Everything You Need in the Perfect Location!

    "This is the absolute perfect location! Very historic and quiet residential district and yet we were 2 blocks from the Harbor, a few blocks from the free trolly, and just minutes from all the wonderful restaurants and shops in Charleston. We had the best of all worlds and a wonderful cottage to relax in at the end of a busy sightseeing day. We took walks with our Schnauzers every morning and evening to the park or just around the neighborhood. We visited with some of the charming neighbors and learned much about the city of Charleston. We loved the cottage. There was much more space than we envisioned and our friend was able to visit with us for a few days as well. Not once did it feed crowded. It is very clean with all the amenities needed. Chriss is an amazing hostess. We did so enjoy her graciousness in allowing us to tour her beautiful home. Don't bypass this gem. You won't be disappointed by what you find at 9 Limehouse."

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.
