  • Perfect

    "I initially had reservations about booking a house not directly on the beach, but we were really glad that we rented this home. It was everything that was promised and more. Beautiful and roomy, we knew after a couple of days that we would return and we've already booked for July 2015. My family of 8 had more than enough room,with 4 spacious bedrooms. Pictures don't do this place justice. The huge back screened in room overlooking the new private pool was my personal favorite. the pool was everything that Joanie promised and more. we were all in it everyday. The beach was truly a 5 minute walk and we hit it every day too. Thanks again Joanie for opening your private home and we can't wait for July."

  • Excellent and Beautiful Home away from Home!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home just steps from beach access! It was large enough to accomodate two families with small children. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and serve food. The living and dining space had ample room for the number of people and play areas, too! The pool was a special treat and we really enjoyed it! The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location is in a peaceful and serene neighborhood. We plan to be back!"

  • Relaxing getaway!

    "Lovely condo and very responsive owner both when inquiring about the property and when there was an issue with Internet/cable service not working. The views from the condo are stunning and it is comfortable. It is not right on the ocean, rather an inlet, so the waves are not big, crashing ocean waves (which is one thing I like), but sitting and watching the water was very nice and relaxing. Frequent dolfin sightings and the sunsets were stunning which you don't get ocean front. Very nice, wide beach to walk on and we found some beautiful shells. One thing I didn't realize is that Seabrook Island is a private golf/country club resort, so the restaurants in the immediate area are associated with the club. There is a planned shopping village that you can drive to where you have a grocery store, coffee shop, pizza place (excellent pizza) and some little boutiques. Otherwise, there is not much else to do there unless you want to join the country club scene and use those facilities."

  • Perfect getaway!

    "Was a great place for our getaway.. Very central location to the islands and to downtown Charleston. Everything we wanted to experience a true South Carolina vacation. Nice cozy little town home, everything needed. A real good old home feeling. Would highly recommend to any vacationer."

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.
