  • Already Requested Booking for Next Year!

    "We've stayed in many different units at COV of Folly Beach. This of course is the largest with the best balcony, BUT, it is also beautiful and well appointed. We had our children and grandchildren with us----ages 12, 8 and 2. They already have planned their return trip with us next year!! The rooms are large----especially the Master King. Each room having its own bath was REALLY helpful. The storage area off the kitchen was a HUGE PLUS! The fact it held some beach toys and towels (that a couple people forgot--LOL) was an additional bonus! My husband has now insisted this be THE condo we rent from now on. The property manager was excellent and very responsive. We had an issue with no parking passes left for us (previous tenants forgot to leave them)--------it took one call and they were delivered within an hour. All this being said, Folly Beach is our favorite beach-------summer and fall. You simply can't beat this unit."

  • Wow! Great place, amazing hosts!

    "This is a charming, well equipped carriage house suite with all the amenities you could imagine, the sweetest and most helpful hosts, off street parking and wonderful neighborhood. 5 minute walk to downtown Charleston, 15 minute drive to beach at Sullivans Island. Harris Teeter is just around the corner for supplies. AND we could bring our doggie too. We enjoyed our little home away from home enough to enjoy hanging out in the living room or on the spacious balcony with a view of their lovely courtyard garden. I just can't say enough about how accommodating and friendly the hosts are. They gave us great information to make our getaway even better. Tips: 2 small flights of somewhat Narrow stairs to apartment and that was fine with us. Walk everywhere but be prepared, Charleston is very hot & humid, though it's also very shady. Walking early or later afternoon is best but hat, sunglasses, water and following the shady routes help. Keep your pup leashed and don't forget to close and latch the gates to the driveway when you come & go. Check out Pure Barre on Market in downtown, excellent studio! Fig, Husk, Circa 1886 are all great restaurants, but you can hardly go wrong - we even liked Johnny Condons. We also ate many meals at "home", it was so cozy being there. Construction situation was barely noticeable. Just bring your clothes and get food/beverage supplies when you get there - the hosts thought of everything else you might want."

  • Perfect downtown hideaway at a great price!

    "My wife and I stayed in this charming carriage house for five weeks upon relocating to Charleston area and while looking for a permanent residence. This property is within walking distance to most all of downtown Charleston and has one off-street parking place. There's also some unregulated parking on the street which was a big plus for us due to having two cars. The property was quiet, cozy, and better than advertised. David and Victoria were very accommodating hosts and even hooked me up with an extension cord so I could charge my plugin hybrid vehicle. We would have stayed another month if the property had been available."

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.
