  • Perfect for a family

    "My husband and I got married on Folly Beach on the 7th and decided to rent houses for all of our guests. Sand Castle in the Sky was where my aunt and uncle, 86 year old grandmother and family friend stayed. We were expecting a room with 2 twin beds in it but instead found a queen bed. This required some shuffling of people around in the other houses we had reserved but it worked. The elevator was great for getting my grandma to the unit. Each room had their own bathroom so there was a nice amount of privacy. The view from the deck was incredible and worth the cost of the rental alone. When we come back to Folly we'll definitely plan on staying here again; cheaper than the local hotel and more comfortable."

  • beach trip family vacation

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay. The rooms are perfectly spread out for families. There was plenty of space all around. The kitchen is overall pretty well stocked. The fridge is rather small and the dishwasher could be updated. Walking to the beach was rather adventurous, (@7min walk) but didn't detour us from going every day. We would come back in a heartbeat."

  • Lovely, Relaxing, Home

    "Our family of three and our fluffy friend spend a week in this beautiful home. My sister and friend from SC came for one night, and our youngest daughter and her husband came for three nights. The pictures posted do not do this lovely home justice. It was very clean and very well maintained. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative. In fact, we hope to be able to rent from Richard again next year. We loved the proximity to Charleston and ate at the Hominy Grill one night. It was absolutely delicious. We also ate at Reds at Bohicket and Stono Market & Tomato Shed (delicious tomato pie and squash casserole). The Freshmarket is so convenient and so is Rosebank Farm (great local shrimp). Thank you again Richard for allowing us to rent your lovely home. We all had a great week."

  • Beautiful Villa; Wonderful Location

    "My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful villa. The furnishings are lovely, and the villa was bright and cheery, with a very open floor plan. The villa was extremely clean, and the photos on VRBO accurately portray the condition of the villa. The kitchen and bathrooms were tastefully updated and very lovely. The villa is conveniently and ideally located across the street from the beach and within short walking distance to Night Heron Park, the Sanctuary, and the Market at Town Center. Jack was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the rental process. I would definitely rent this property again, and I highly recommend this villa to others thinking of renting on Kiawah."

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.
