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.

Girls Week 2019
Very comfortable house, everything we needed. Short walk to the beach. At our age an elevator would have been helpful! Great front screened porch and wonderful deck for sun worshipers.
Would not stay again
The house was very dirty as were the linens they provided. I wouldn’t rent from them again.
Beautiful Spring Days
We had an amazing time here --- the location is great, the amenities are nice and house is tastefully decorated. The screened in porch and large side porch are perfect for enjoying a book, breakfast or a nap in the sun. The only reason for the 4-star rating is due to some small maintenance issues as mentioned in earlier reviews, like dusting, non-working light bulbs and a stopped up bathroom sink. Otherwise, perfect beach getaway!
Best overall cottage we have ever rented on east coast
Cape cod style home is located in a good neighborhood. Loads of covered parking. Large sunrise deck with views of the ocean through palmetto trees. Master suite access to deck. Open great room with views. Screened porch with padded rockers made listening to ocean marvelous. Large grassy yard was perfect for our schnoodle. Wife loved kitchen. Location was less than a mile from grocery store and best restaurants. Only 200 steps to ocean through the neighbors yard and over palmetto Avenue to beach .sea cloud is a home..not just a house
Enjoyed our stay. Short walk to the beach. We stayed in February so the island was very quiet and many places where closed for the winter.
Good, could be great with some attention and TLC
Our first experience on Edisto was peaceful, calm, serene...and our house was the same. We had an enjoyable two weeks - house was excellent location, supplied with everything to make our stay comfortable (e.g., kitchen supplies!). Edisto is pet friendly, the local food was OUTSTANDING - and although we were not prepared for the constant Atlantic winds - took the "advertised temperatures" form 60's into what seemed like the 40's at times - the beachwalks were refreshing, the neighborhood strolls relaxing. What would have made the stay better was some attention and TLC to the property. We bought refrigerator bulbs, smoke detector batteries, dealt with a broken washing machine (fixed pronto!) as well as a clogged main floor bathroom sink. So with some routine checks/maintenance and some TLC this would be a 5-star.
