Recent Charleston Area reviews

  • Great place!

    "We rented the Jacobson Building for a girls weekend in Charleston and it couldn't have been more perfect! It was a great size but also kept us all close (instead of being separated into different hotel rooms). The location was ideal - we walked everywhere. I would certainly recommend for large groups or, if a smaller group renting a portion of the floor. Lots of options and amenities. Thanks, Jan!"

  • Labor Day weekend getaway

    "The villa was nice. Very clean and stocked with plenty of supplies including boogie boards and beach chairs! The beach was great! Not crowded at all and we got up close and personal with schools of dolphins. The only negative is that you have to "hike" from the parking area to the beach. It's at least 400 yards so take a wagon."

  • The Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!!!

    "We reluctantly arrived back home after a wonderfully relaxing time at your beach cottage. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise on Sullivan's Island. We loved the history of the home, the setting and watching the boats travel into and out of Charleston Harbor. Every morning we’d wake up to the spectacular view from the bedroom and the gorgeous early morning light and we spent endless amounts of time on the front porch. It’s truly a magical place and we will definitely be back. Out of all of the places we've stayed in the Charleston area, this one became our favorite by far. We will be back."

  • Excellent Summer Vacation

    "My wife and I (and our 4 kids) just stayed here last week and had an amazing experience. The house is incredible. Although it is on an island, it has all the amenities that you would get any where else. The views are incredible. Having access to the boat added so much to our stay. To be able to visit the marina for things and to go to shore to do some exploring was so valuable. Just walking out to the dock to get on the boat is an experience like none other. The views, the wildlife, the sunsets, the dolphins....words can't describe it. On a side note, Joe is an amazing guy. We actually had a small battery issue with the boat (no doubt, something our kids left on) and within 30 minutes, he was there with another boat. He is genuinely one of the nicest guys we have ever met and he made sure that our stay was perfect. We will be back. Thanks Joe!"

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.
