  • Fantastic Vacation!!

    "We just returned from a fabulous stay at this Ocean Woods Cottage. It was clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The quality of the furnishings, linens and towels were excellent and the house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location was great...just a short walk to the beach. It was so easy working with Kiawah Island Getaways. We also ordered bikes and boogie boards ahead of time and they were waiting for us on the deck as promised. The binder with helpful tips and restaurant information was also a great addition. This was our first visit to Kiawah and we are already looking forward to returning again soon!"

  • Incredible Condo!!! Unbelievable Views!!

    "If you are looking for a great deal right on the water, this is it! With two porches overlooking the ocean, and well kept and well appointed rooms, you will not be disappointed. Literally, all but one room in the house have a view of the ocean. And the owners are so helpful and easy to work with. Whether you are a couple getting away for the week or a family on vacation, this is the place you want to stay!"

  • Annual girls' trip

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Wonderful home - 14 of us were comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived. To nit-pick, the only suggestions we have are that the sheets are not that soft, pretty scratchy actually, and some umbrellas poolside would be nice to go with the lovely chairs. Also one of the ovens was not working. Otherwise, perfection. Manager responded on 10/22/2014: Hi Donna, Thank you for your review of 612 Ocean Blvd. We're glad to have you back with us! To comment on your tried putting an umbrella on the pool side table but the winds off the ocean kept blowing it over. One of the wall ovens in the kitchen had a heating element that went bad the day you arrived. The part has been replaced already. All our sheets and bath terry are supplied and professionally laundered by a linen company. The laundering process sanitizes the sheets and this process may make it a bit stiffer than sheets laundered at home. East Islands Rentals"

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.
