  • Fantastic

    "Our small company had its staff retreat at this lovely location and it was just wonderful. The house was restful and beautiful- a great environment to foster creativity and planning. It was large enough that our families could stay as well, which made it especially nice. We were incredibly blessed by this place!"

  • GREAT FAMILY VACATION

    "Our three generation family all enjoyed this trip to Isle of Palms. Owner Rita Stone was welcoming and promptly helped us with our questions. The house is comfortable and very well decorated. The stretch golf cart helped us get down to the beach with our gear. We could walk to the pool, a wonderful restaurant and small store."

  • Very happy vacationer!

    "We are seasoned Kiawah renters so we already knew howych we love the island. Normally, we rent a 5 bedroom house and bring our entire family. This was just a quick trip for my husband and I and so we had to search for a smaller unit. The condo was exactly as pictured on the website and the location was perfect! Very short walk to the beach....we loved it!"

  • What a Great Relaxing Place

    "Bruce and Pauline could not have been nicer to work with. Fast response to questions and accommodations. They are terrific hosts. The home is just perfect for the two of us and our little Westie. She got more exercise in a month than she did all year, and she already misses the fun on Kiawah. We fully enjoyed the location and the use of chairs and bikes. Even though we brought our own bikes for the month, our guests came to enjoy those provided by the Listers. The home was not as clean as we would have liked when we arrived, but a quick email to Bruce and Pauline took care of that, and the lady was there quickly to resolve. The house is well stocked with just about everything you need, so just relax and enjoy it. We would certainly return. Thanks for a great stay."

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.
