  • Just right for holiday getaway

    "We found the OceanWoods Cottage to be perfect for our needs!! The proximity to Night Heron Park was a huge bonus for our children, who enjoyed biking over there daily for pick-up games of basketball and soccer, and we all appreciated being so close to the beach, even in December. We were lucky to have a couple of days of 70 degree, sunny weather, and we took full advantage and biked and played outside the entire time! The house was clean and had an abundance of towels, which was much appreciated! It's a very functional house in a great location, and we hope to return in the future!"

  • Pure relaxation!

    "This was our first trip to Kiawah Island and it was everything we were hoping for! The home was exactly as pictured, clean and comfortable. It was wonderful to not have to worry about making beds when we arrived after a long trip driving, as linens and bath towels are provided. Joe did a great job of answering questions and providing recommendations. We were able to reach the pristine beach after a leisurely family bike ride. With quick access to an underground tunnel, we did not have to worry about crossing traffic to reach the beach. Kiawah is quiet and you feel as if it is your own private beach. We loved sitting on the back porch after making smores over the provided gas grill. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for preparing meals. The master felt especially roomy with vaulted ceilings and king sized bed. The outdoor shower was wonderful to rinse off after long day at the beach. We had a great time taking the many trails to bike and jog. Charleston was only about 25 minutes away and was a nice day trip. We ate at The Fat Hen and it was excellent! We also ate at Red's Ice House and it was good and inexpensive. The true test was that our 4 children ages 19-9 did not want to come home!"

  • Lovely jewel on the water

    "When we opened the door to this lovely villa apartment, we literally gasped. How did we get so lucky?! We gazed in at a jewel of a home, beautiful and inviting, it's windows and balcony beckoning the light and offering dazzling views of the marina and sound. We've visited Edisto many times but this was our first experience on the riverfront around the bay point. A different ecosystem from the bay, oceanfront or marsh, the marina introduces the sounds of birds, boats and fishing and yet a new sort of happy human chatter on the dock. It's a short walk to the bay point for sunset dolphin watching (and they do show up right on time to watch us). The villa itself was pristine as our hosts offered, clean and pretty, not "sterile" at all but not overdone. It's a loved little home, roomy for 2-4 people, with comfy beds and spotless baths. The kitchen was cute and full service so eating in was easy and appealing. The art, books and game collection made TV and WiFi unnecessary, gliding the lily. Convenient location, access to the best of Edisto Beach, in a well managed condo complex. Our hosts were warm and friendly to correspond with. Hard to say what we liked best, but sitting on the balcony overlooking the water sure is good for the heart and mind."

  • 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.
