  • Seaside Serenity

    "We loved this house! It is clean and spacious with private beach access. There were five couples with four children under six. The weather did not cooperate unfortunately but having this lovely house-oasis sure made our vacation nice anyway. Close to Charleston. Our daughter and family were the first to arrive. Found that a piece was missing on the Pack N Play. Called and within a half hour a new one was delivered. We definitely recommend this house!"

  • Visitors from Hartsville, SC

    "The house was beautiful and just like the description said. The house was very clean and definitely well maintained. It was comfortable and had plenty of sleeping space for my family of eight. We had two grandkids with us - 8 and 12 - who had a ball flying kites across the road in an available area. We were attending a wedding at Boone Hall Plantation and were only about 5 - 6 miles from there. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice comfortable place to stay."

  • Wonderful house

    "This was a wonderful house for a large number of adults. Very comfortable and we didn't feel on top of one another. The only disappointment was the pool. It needed cleaning badly. Had the potential to be something really neat but it was just too gross to think about getting in. We enjoyed sitting next to it though."

  • Perfect Easter vacation

    "This home is in a wonderful location in KI. Past the second gate but still very close to everything. The Sanctuary is right around the corner and a very short bike ride. The house is very clean, comfortable and has everything you would need, including beach chairs and toys. It is on a small cul-de-sac which gives children a great place to "warm-up" on their bikes. We saw several deer come up to the driveway from the fairway behind the house. There is a wonderful screen porch with a nice space to eat that overlooks the fairway. It is very peaceful but still convenient to everything. The beach is a short bike ride away. The owners are great to work with! We hope to be able to stay there again!"

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.
