  • Very Cute Villa!

    "We just arrived back from a late August stay at this adorable villa. When we arrived, it was very clean and comfortable, and just as the pictures showed. The kitchen was surprising well stocked for a small kitchen, and had absolutely everything we needed. I was there with my two small children, and the layout perfectly accommodated the three of us. It is nice that there is some separation of the bedroom from the living room with the pullout couch, where the two of them slept. The screen porch was also very nice, and the outdoor furniture was very comfortable. The best part of it all, though, were the resort privileges! We all greatly enjoyed access to the water parks and swimming pools. It was really nice that there is both the West Beach pool/water park that was just a very short walk from the villa, or the Night Heron pool/water park that was just a short car or bike ride away. The beach was close by and lovely too, of course. The owner is very nice to work with, and the people at the Kiawah Island Golf resort were very accommodating as well. We look forward to coming back and would definitely stay in this villa again."

  • Great Vacation

    "Love the location of this Villa, just a short walk to the beach. The island was very quiet during our stay and the weather just great. The Villa is very nice and comfortable and clean. We stayed in this Villa summer of 2013, also. That should tell you that we like it. We like the fact that no smoking is allowed and no pets are allowed. The owner is very pleasant to rent from."

  • Wonderful House!

    "My family ( 5 adults & 2 children) just returned from our week at Loggerhead Rest. It felt just like home! Had everything we needed & then some. The short walk to beach was a surprise. I thought it would be further but as it was our walk was shorter than my sister's who's house was beachfront! We loved the basement, it offered a great play area for the kids or a getaway for adults. We would definitely come back again. Margaret"

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.
