  • Beachy and fun!

    "Those are the words that come into mind when I think back (longingly!) on our vacation at The Original Seacloud. This was just easy from start to finish. Richard and Mary apparently work 24 hours a day because every time we emailed them they emailed us back right away; mostly late at night! Everyone else we emailed didn't reply until the next day. And the house...well it was wonderful. We went on the beach every day and let the kids just play! We brought them back and bathed them in the outdoor enclosed hot and cold shower and now they think we need one at home but we tell them that is only to be had at The Original Seacloud. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms; (they are all too cute!) but we stayed in that one because I just loved the saying they had engraved on the wall above the bed. I keep wishing I had written it down; can you please tell me what it was? It was along the lines of "Dance like no one is watching". We'll be back; I hope you're open when we can come back!"

  • Great Stay!!

    "My family and I have stayed here several times and are always very pleased. The owner is great to work with. We love sitting inside or on the spacious deck at what our family calls "the million dollar view" of the sun and sunsets over the River."

  • Perfect for family getaway

    "We stayed in a different cottage but the accommodations were exceptional. Perfect for my family with two toddlers. Across street from a park, pool and endless gardens to explore. We will be back and highly recommend."

  • Great beach vacation, yet in a secluded neighborhood

    "We have visited Wild Dunes many times and enjoy experiencing the personalities of the various properties and neighborhoods. This house is in very good condition, and is well stocked for those, like us, who enjoy spending time at home and cooking together. There was a beautiful outside grill we used more than once. The walk to the beach was very manageable, so the fact that the home was in a quiet community gave us the best of both worlds. My elderly mother joined us and was able to utilize her walker throughout most of the house, along with using the master shower which had a small step in and a less slippery rock floor. For those wishing for more action, the Pavilion was within walking distance as well. I will emphasize that small children or the elderly would find both distances difficult, but they worked well for myself, my husband, and daughter, who are avid walkers. Of course, renting a golf cart is always an option. The living area and sunroom were comfortable as were the beds. Our goal was a retreat type vacation, so we did not indulge in any adventures, but there are plenty of opportunities on the island and within Wild Dunes with the sports card. My husband took in a round of golf on the dunes and was thrilled with the course and views. Our family is challenged with allergies and find comfort vacationing on IOP, having easy access to fine restaurants savvy with dietary limitations, and groceries easily available from Harris Teeter. Mt. Pleasant also offers Trader Joes and Whole Foods for even more fresh and allergen free options. We always take in a sunrise and were blessed with ocean beauty and much wildlife, including a family if four deer in the dunes. Overall, we would definitely consider this rental again. It was clean, well furnished, and private. Wild Dunes never disappoints; the facility is meticulously kept and the complex is a calm and safe atmosphere."

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.
