  • Kiawah Villa

    "Very nice villa with 2 exceptions. 1) The Live television box was very frustrating to use. Often it would not connect, and when it did it would stop working. Also takes too much time when changing channels. 2) You could not leave anything out on the counters without putting food in zip lock bags due to ants. They converged immediately on/in food and glasses."

  • Long Weekend Vacation

    "My parents and I stayed at this home for a long weekend. House is well kept up on the inside. Plenty of room for the four of us. Edisto Island is a beautiful place with several local restaurants. Saw lots of wildlife around the home, family of 4 deer visited frequently. You will need to bring paper products ( toilet tissue, paper towels), dish washing liquid."

  • Enjoyably stay at Dunes West!

    "We enjoyed our recent stay at Dunes West! The condo is located in a beautifully maintained and quiet community. It was great for walks and provided easy access to attractions in the area. Susan was very accommodating and the condo had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There is a grocery store less than a mile away which was very handy. It was too late in the year to enjoy the pool but it looked very inviting. We would definitely stay there again."

  • A month wasn't long enough !

    "Kathy's cozy condo on quiet Center St in the heart of the charming Old Village section of Mt Pleasant, with its wonderful live oak trees over every street, is the perfect place for a vacation as restful or active as anyone could want. It's just around the corner from Publix Market and the Ben Sawyer road to the beach, and convenient to history and golf as well. And Kathy supplies all the kitchen stuff and linens anyone could want. A real winner."

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.
