  • Beach House

    "A wonderful Thanksgiving week with our family in a good house. Great location! Kids loved the bunk bed room. Only gripes being the Queen bed upstairs was so hard I slept in the twin bed in the back room. We have been renting houses for 10 years and the following items are always provided for us. However here we had to purchase Trash bags, liquid dish soap, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, Tea Towels (there was just one!) and toilet paper (there was 2 rolls upon check in)"

  • In Love with Seabrook

    "We contacted Diane about renting her home and from that point forward the experience was pleasant at every turn. Diane took a considerable amount of time to answer all of my questions about her home and the island. What she was not sure about she sought out the answers for and got back with me. The home is located in a very quiet nice peaceful area a short bike ride from the beaches and the pool. The house is well equipped and in excellent shape. We spent several evenings playing cards on the back porch which overlooks the golf course. As for Seabrook Island itself we fell in love with all it has to offer a family on vacation. We've visited quite a few coastal communities over the past 20 years and found Seabrook Island to have the perfect balance we were looking for. The island is truly gated and gets no unwanted traffic. Even Kiawah cannot boast of this as they let shoppers and golfers by the dozens flood in at will. The Island has an excellent equestrian center, world class tennis center, a beach club with restaurant and pool, bike friendly roads and loads of natural habitat. We had not visited Seabrook in almost twenty years but were so struck by it that we finished the week long visit by making an offer on a home of our own. If we end up closing on our home we owe it to the experience we had renting from Diane at Tarpon pond."

  • Fantastic

    "Had the best time ever. Took another couple with us. Was there during Halloween. Did alot of sightseeing and walking since we were pretty close to everything. The condo was great as usual. Beds were very comfortable. Wished we would have checked the brand before we left. Such a peaceful area. This was out 2nd time there and will definitely keep it in mind if we get back there in the future."

  • A week in paradise

    "We have been staying at this beach house every other year for the last 10 years, and just ended our 5th stay there. My 4 siblings from all over the U.S., all our children, and all our grandchildren gather for this family reunion every other year, and we have a wonderful time. This house is totally equipped with plenty of bedrooms, a kitchen stocked with every bit of equipment you could ever ask for, and a large and comfy living room. The basement includes a ping pong table and a foosball table that the teenagers totally make use of. There are 3 extra refrigerators, besides the kitchen one, so we don't have to constantly go to the store. This home is cool, clean and comfortable, well taken care of. You can tell the owner takes a big interest in keeping it up. We enjoy every square inch of it. But the BEST part is the long, screened in back porch. Those rockers are constantly in motion with people sharing their lives. From sunrise to far into the night, conversations between 2 people, or among 20 people, are enjoyed. We've made many memories at this wonderful home over the years, and I know we wouldn't be as comfortable any place else. This home will always be our first choice. I would recommend this property to anyone --- unless they wanted our week!"

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.
