  • 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."

  • Southern Charm and then some!

    "Truly shows Southern hospitality! Beautiful home in a serene,quiet location, yet close enough to island activities and Charleston. Special spots are the screened porch, lovely front porch and deck with pool and hot tub, something for everyone in our multi-generation group. Its a short pleasant walk to the beach. We enjoyed biking, golfing, viewing wildlife and had a wonderful first visit to Kiawah Island! Owners were great when we needed to contact them."

  • Seabrook Island excursion

    "My husband and I wanted to escape the cold winter temperatures of VA and decided to head south for 5 weeks. We decided upon Seabrook Island, SC for the beach and biking opportunities, in addition to the proximity to Charleston. The photos of this villa looked lovely and we hoped we would not be disappointed upon arrival. We were thrilled when we discovered it looked even better in person. Fully equipped kitchen, fresh decor and just a few minutes walk/bike ride to the beach, made this the perfect get away location. Will plan to return next winter."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "Perfect in every way as described! My wife and I spent our 40th Anniversary here at Port O Call a couple of weeks ago. The condo was amazing, the pictures are just as the condo truly is, but what the pictures don’t relay is the comfort of this condo. Everything is provided, and there is nothing like sitting on the patio with the fabulous view of the ocean and listening to the waves. And a walk on the beach definitely soothes the soul! Allen, the owner was easy to contact with any questions we had and also gave us fabulous suggestions for restaurants. We ate at the Morgan Creek Grille for our anniversary dinner, the food was wonderful as well as the service and view – I would highly recommend! A couple of tips: the store at the Marina is just a few minutes away and they have everything a small convenience store would have including a fabulous array of souvenirs … clothes, T-shirts to remember your visit by, just about anything imaginable for memories of your stay at Isle of Palms. Also, if you arrive by air in Charleston, you’ll see ads for Hyman’s Seafood, a Charleston favorite. Best raw oysters and hush puppies ever! While in Charleston we also did a harbor cruise and then, the following day, we created our own self guided walking tour to explore Charleston. Both were so convenient to Isle of Palms. What a wonderful Anniversary at Port O Call ! We can’t wait to return!"

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.
