  • Great everything

    "This cottage was perfect for our group. Very comfortably furnished, well-stocked kitchen, nice screened porch and outdoor deck, and plenty of room. It has a big advantage in coming with 4 nice bikes, perfect for riding the bike trails and beaches of the island. The location was also perfect. Easy access to the beach, close to the end of the island where the birdwatching and solitude were best. Close to Inlet Cove Club with pool, which also has easy access to the Kiawah River for beautiful marsh/tidal river views, sea kayaking, cast netting, crabbing, and fishing. And easy access to a great grocery store in Freshfields Village between Kiawah and Seabrook. Top that off with a very pleasant and helpful owner and very reasonable pricing, and we recommend this place most highly."

  • Very Nice and Roomy Place

    "Very nice, clean and roomy condo. Everything worked and functioned well. Especially enjoyed sitting out on the screened in patio which overlooked the marsh and river. Would stay there again if I needed something that big."

    "A nice,quiet place to stay. The description was accurate . It was cleaned and well maintained. A few of the windows would not open,therefore we had to run the air. We might not have if we could of opened them. Thelma and Seibelt were very sweet and helpful. A great place to stay. The area is wonderful,walking distance to the ocean and eating places. The steps up are a bit challenging ,but there are 1st. floor units. The isle of Palms is wonderful and peaceful."

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.
