  • Wonderful Week!

    "We were looking for a home for 5 adult couples to spend a golf/beach week at Kiawah. Our criteria in choosing a home was that we wanted 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, something close to the beach and a pool. This home had all of those things and when we arrived, we discovered it had even more. Everyone commented on how well they slept as the beds were very comfortable. Each bathroom is large and some even have special showers! The kitchen is well stocked which made cooking for a group easier. There is an elevator that made loading and unloading a happier chore! The beach is indeed a quick 3-5 minute walk. We rented bikes from the service the owner recommended and it worked perfectly. We would stay here again! The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. It is a lovely home and a good value."

  • Spring get- away!!

    "My husband and I rented this condo for a long weekend Apil 9-13. It was our first visit to South Carolina and we definitely plan to visit again. We love the location, the fully equipped kitchen, the covered deck, the laundry facilities, the comfy bed… The southern hospitality was over the top wherever we went. Friday we spent all day on the beach, Saturday was the Sand and Sea Festival, and Sunday, we took a ride into Charleston….. Just perfect for a little warmer upper from Wisconsin’s spring. Pam was wonderful to work with, we will highly recommend this spot to family/friends!. Thanks Pam!! Love your condo."

  • Everything We Hoped For

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location, nicely furnished. Three minute walk to the beach. Liked being close to the IOP "downtown". The Harris Teeter grocery, just a half block away, is spotless, large and has about a 1000 different wines available. Great meat and produce, too. The Island Realty people were top notch. Everyone we met were helpful and Charleston gracious. We are especially grateful to the new owners of this property (for reasons I won't go into here)...but, WOW, what nice people. No complaints. Not one. (Oh, okay, take a hair dryer with you.) Sandshell Court 8 was everything we hoped for."

  • Fun family get away!

    "We had a great time at the beach. Loved the beach supplies left on the back porch - boogie boards, chairs, umbrella....etc. Excellent location and so easy to get little kids to and from the beach. Sofa bed not the most comfortable but did great for the kids."

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.
