  • Folly's Favorite!

    "We had a group of 11 adults who stayed here for a week. It is a great house, beautifully decorated and well kept. Donna was awesome! If we called her, she responded! She went out of her way to accomodate us in anything that she could. Great to work with...will definitely be back!"

  • Unspoiled Paradise!

    "Charlotte's Pearl on Dewees Island is a true gem! The home is beautifully designed with gorgeous interior spaces. Access to an unspoiled beach is an easy walk on a charming tree-lined road. Leave your windows open at night and hear the ocean waves. We had a wonderful time marveling at the shells that washed up on the beach each morning (usually had the entire beach to ourselves). We hiked, biked and canoed everyday. Screened porches off each bedroom and the upstairs family room help capture the best of indoor/outdoor living while at the beach. Charlotte's Pearl provides golf carts for exploring the island. No cars allowed! This was our first trip to Dewees Island and we loved it, simply breathtaking. We plan to return and hope to make Charlotte's Pearl our home away from home. It is truly spectacular."

  • Katy from NJ

    "Our family had a wonderful vacation and really enjoyed this lovely home. We were able to take advantage of the well stocked kitchen and had some great meals here. The house was very clean and was nicely decorated. The screened in porch was delightful. It was a short walk to the beach, and our dog loved the dog park right down the street. We have not rented a home before for a vacation and we were very lucky in finding this one. The owner was very easy to get in touch with and we hope to stay here again next summer! Very positive experience and would highly recommend this home for your vacation."

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.
