Recent Charleston Area reviews

  • Clean, quiet, and close to everything!

    "This was an excellent rental for our vacation! The condo was exceptionally clean and well stocked with all the extras that you don't normally find in a vacation rental right down to snacks, beach chairs, sheets, towels, toilet paper, and soap. It was also extremely quiet! It's located minutes from stores, beaches, tourist attractions, and anything else you'd want. No need to pay higher rates for a place to stay when this condo truly has it all! Be sure to check out Botany Bay Plantation Beach which is about 50 minutes away but very private and unforgettable with all the seashells."

  • A relaxing stay close to the beach

    "My wife, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this 2 bedroom condo. The furnishings are attractive, the king size bed in the master bedroom and the queen bed in the other bedroom were both comfortable, the kitchen was amply stocked with dishes, utensils and paper towels and the counter was nicely renovated with granite, there is a screened in porch with a lovely view of a lagoon, and you are no more than a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. The only negative I found was that the master bathroom is small. But this was a minor inconvenience that did not detract much from our overall enjoyment of the place. An added perk is that you have the amenities and services of the Kiawah Golf Resort available to you. We found the staff very helpful in resolving minor issues (e.g. providing new batteries for the tv remotes) and suggesting outings, such as the family kayaking trip we took through the marshlands. And if you don 't feel like walking or driving around Kiawah Island, the Resort provides a free shuttle service. In short, our stay at this condo on Kiawah was highly relaxing and enjoyable. We are already considering a return trip."

  • Good Location

    "I was looking for a two bedroom, two bath condo on the second floor (so we didn't have to hear the people above us) close to the beach club for a family of four. This condo fits the bill exactly. We found the condo to be exactly as pictured and it was across the street from the pool. Overall, a very nice unit and the lady's at Coastal Getaways were very efficient and easy to work with. The reason for the four stars is be sure to buy toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags before you get there. We found a partial roll in each of the bathrooms, a partial paper towel roll in the kitchen, and one garbage bag (the one that was in the kitchen garbage can) and that is the extent of the supplies. Also, if you are planning to use the kitchen, it has very few items in it. Plan to use just the beach club - we went over the Lake House to check it out and got the stink eye from all of the "local members". No towels are provided at that pool - I guess to keep the non-members at the beach club."

  • Great location.

    "Walk across the street to the beach and you can even see the pier in the distance. This is a cozy rental with good shade under the deck (since it is the downstairs unit). We loved the hammock and screened in patio. Leave the windows open and listen to the ocean while you go to sleep. Nice quiet street that is far enough away from the late night music down on main street. We will be back!"

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.
