Recent Charleston Area reviews

  • CHARLESTON CHARM

    "We SO enjoyed our stay ~ we love Charleston and this home made it even better! It was so well equipped and convenient to all things! We have already told several others about it. We were pleasantly surprised by how quickly our deposit was returned. I read reviews that stated that ~ thought maybe 21-30 days would be prompt ~ we received it about 7-8 days! You and your home exceeded our expectations. My sister, my husband, and myself had a wonderful time ~ only wished we had more time!"

  • Wonderful Southern Getaway

    "We spent about a week in this wonderfully, warm home at the end of September with two of our adult children. We had such a wonderful time. It was close enough to all we wanted to see and far enough out to relax and enjoy some nature. We kayaked every day out to the ocean and even caught a couple of crabs with the crab pot. I would highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone. Would love to make it a yearly retreat."

  • Great Time

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family (ages 2-62)had a great mid-March stay at Beach Bums. Accommodations were as good or better than advertised. We particularly liked the large kitchen, outdoor seating, elevator to bring things upstairs, and outdoor shower to wash the sand and salt off little ones. Beautiful quiet area. Manager responded on 3/27/2015: Sheryl, We have just received your review. Thank you so much for sharing your experience! We are thrilled that your family enjoyed the comfort, cleanliness, and added amenities found at Beach Bums on Edisto Beach. We look forward to being your host on Edisto during any season. We are always a phone call away! Regards, Atwood Vacations Team"

  • Amazing beach!

    "A great, restful getaway. The beach is not crowded. You can see playful dolphins most any time. It rained a good big of the time, but we didn't care because of the gorgeous views with windows on 2 sides of the living area."

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.
