  • Modern Villa

    "What a wonderful 1st floor unit. The location is perfect as it is a short walk to the beach, night heron park, sanctuary spa and east beach market. The furnishings are very comfortable and this condo is well equipped."

  • Absolutely perfect

    "Our recent stay at The Bay was absolutely perfect. Every few years we escape to Edisto, and we have never stayed at a nicer place. The home is well maintained, spacious, and full of natural light that can be controlled with curtains. The marsh view from the front, with the rising and lowering of the tides, is breathtaking at any point of the day. The beach itself is generally pretty quiet and not very populated with people at any point in the day, all of which keeps it quite beautiful. It was nice to have the pool as well. It became a late-in-the-day gathering place for our family. Seeing the basketball hoop in the photo made my nephew bring his basketball, and he was so happy to be able to shoot some hoops during our stay. Though we didn't use the doc, my husband and I had a date on the swing one evening, the day of our anniversary. We had yet another lovely view of marsh. Oh, and the front decks on both levels are lovely in the morning... a nice way to wake up to the day with cup of coffee. I loved how the home didn't have a TV in every room. We watched on the living room TV if there was something we wanted to see. We really, we had access to whatever we wanted to see streamed. Appreciated the wifi because it allowed us to check email, but other than that, we really unplugged."

  • What a Great Relaxing Place

    "Bruce and Pauline could not have been nicer to work with. Fast response to questions and accommodations. They are terrific hosts. The home is just perfect for the two of us and our little Westie. She got more exercise in a month than she did all year, and she already misses the fun on Kiawah. We fully enjoyed the location and the use of chairs and bikes. Even though we brought our own bikes for the month, our guests came to enjoy those provided by the Listers. The home was not as clean as we would have liked when we arrived, but a quick email to Bruce and Pauline took care of that, and the lady was there quickly to resolve. The house is well stocked with just about everything you need, so just relax and enjoy it. We would certainly return. Thanks for a great stay."

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.
