Graduated from the College of Charleston and plan to live on Edisto Forever. Enjoy sailing, yachting, jet skiing, tennis, golf..beachcombing, all outside sports.

Richard Howse purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Richard Howse chose Edisto Beach

Edisto is a secluded barrier island with a laid back family atmosphere. I grew up on Edisto, own a real estate company here, my husband owns 2 retail stores here, where else would be better to own rental property?

What makes this cottage unique

Great family home with living room open to dining room. Cozy screen porch to enjoy sea breezes, family time, cocktail hour, or just chillin. Hugh open sundeck with lounge chairs for sunning, spacious table for outside meals, great area below for cookouts, oyster roast, crab boils, shrimp stews. Also has enclosed hot/cold shower to enjoy when coming back from beach, concrete area for kids to bike, skateboard, basketball goal for all around fun! Located 2 homes to ocean with some view of ocean but back on secluded quiet street. It doesn't get any better than this.

best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time while we were in Edisto Beach. What an adorable cottage this one is. We loved every inch of it; the sun deck, the laundry room, the outside shower, the screened porch, the perfect kitchen, the adorable family room and bedrooms, the cutest beachy decorations we had ever seen and so much more. Everything was just perfect. The weather could not have been better and the beach is awesome. We will certainly want to return again. I am ready to return now, coming back to Illinois was very hard and even though we have been back over a week, I feel my mind is still at the beach. Never before have we had such a relaxing time on vacation. Edisto Beach is very much South Carolina's best kept secret!

Wonderful little cottage by the sea!

  • 4 of 5

Adorable vintage cottage. Nicely decorated and in a great location just one block off the beach. Bathrooms are tiny but cute and the kitchen is fully functional with an open feel. My favorite part was the screened in porch with rockers off the back. Spent many happy hours rocking and listening to the ocean. Our little puppy enjoyed her stay as well.

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It was a perfect house for our two little families. Easy walk to the beach and so peaceful. Only things we missed were a cutting board and a large frying pan (we like to cook). There are tons of kitchen amenities so we may have overlooked these things... We would definitely stay here again!

New Year's Eve get away

  • 3 of 5

We selected the Original Seacloud mainly because they were "pet friendly" and affordable. The cottage was clean and provided everything we needed for our 4 couples. The downstairs bunk bedroom was small for 2 adults but would be fine for 2 children. The location to the beach was convenient even though we didn't spend much time there due to the rain :(. The owners or property managers were not easy to reach...We were not given a phone number and our emails were not returned after we paid the balance due in full. It wasn't until the morning we were scheduled to leave that we were finally contacted about pet fees and keys after sending 3 unanswered emails. Our group found this frustrating to say the least. The owners or property managers did not provide good customer service in my opinion.

Owner's Response: This guest never mentioned the fact that they had THREE dogs until after they made their reservation and had to disclose it on the Reservation Agreement. We make it clear from start to finish how much the "fur-baby" fee is and that you are welcome to bring your "fur-baby" as long as you pay the "fur-baby" fee and the fee is of course per dog. You cannot bring multiple dogs to our home for the price of one. Multiple dogs require additional cleaning and additional lawn "policing". This guest was told this when they disclosed the fact they were adding three dogs and of course we do not be provide check in information to anyone until ALL fees are paid in full. They did not pay for their their "fur-baby" at that time and in fact they did not pay for them until the DAY OF CHECK IN in 3 separate payments. In fact their last payment was received at 2:30pm even though we had agreed to let them check in at 3pm (an hour early) so they could watch the Clemson game. Our private telephone number is given to all of our guests with their Check In information and this guest chose NOT to pay all of their fees until 30 minutes prior to arrival after being told their key code would not be programmed for them unless all fees were received. We handle ALL of business electronically to avoid any "misunderstandings" via conversations and have every communication of this guest on file. This eliminates ANY "but I thought you said" in our rentals and works very well. The last communication from this guest on 11:52 am on their day of check in before they had paid for any of the dogs they had added was "Thank you Richard. Sorry for all the confusion".
