Welcome to a legend on Edisto Beach; Mary's Dream! A four bedroom, two bath, wonderful oceanfront cottage with all the up-to-date amenities yet retaining the classic charm of days gone by! Relax and enjoy ocean anywhere you like; under the covered porch which spans the entire oceanfront or on our sundeck. Our sundeck wraps around the entire oceanfront and the SUNDECK ALONE IS 1500 SQUARE FEET!
Cook your own seafood from the local docks with our fully-equipped kitchen. Watch the pelicans from the great room, enjoy your coffee from the master suite, or step outside the master suite door onto the deck and enjoy the morning. Stroll along the beach in the evening or relax in one of the rocking chairs and enjoy the quiet serenity of Edisto with panormamic oceanfront views.
Our master suite offers private access to beach for those wonderful private strolls under the stars. All of our bedrooms have ocean views as does every room in the house with the exception of one room: the guest bathroom!
This is the beach house of your childhood but she now has central heat and air conditioning and huge wrap around decks with all of the original hardwood floors lovingly restored and now gleaming... Kick off your shoes!
We have shared Mary's Dream with guests for over 14 years, when VRBO was owned by a husband and wife and was a small company which provided a service. Now VRBO is a corporation and wants to make money not just on the listing price but also by handling all of the funds. This "service" reflects a cost to the homeowner's who use it and will only push up the price of the rental for you therefore we do not pay for it and pass the cost on to you. I am a licensed real estate Broker in South Carolina and North Carolina for over 30 years and do not need to pay anyone to handle the funds.
We have been with Homeaway/VRBO for over 10 years; we do NOT accept payments via Homeaway and never have; You will be able to reserve our home directly through us and NOT have to pay the Homeaway the fee they charge you!
Below are a few comments from our guests; we sincerely appreciate it!

Hellooo Mary & Richard.
We just got back home yesterday and wanted to go back to the Island already but we have to work. We had a great time again this year. Its hard to believe its been 12 years since we stayed at Mary's Dream for the first time on our honeymoon in 1999 and we have not missed a September full moon since then. The minute we unpack when we get there we feel just like it's our home too; we love this place!
Thank you both so much for sharing it with Karen and myself over the years! I will email you the dates we would like for next year in a few days. We wish you and your family Blessing ,Love and Joy for the upcoming holidays

We wanted to say Thank You So Much for allowing us to rent your wonderful beach home. Mary's Dream is the perfect beach house. We never wanted to leave even to venture out. The front porch was just heaven. I am sure we will be contacting you again soon!
Thanks so much!

We chose to stay in Edisto so we could visit our son who is stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort. We had everything we needed at Mary's Dream, from wi-fi for my college student to fishing for my son in the Marine Corps, beach combing and boogie boarding for the 10 year olds, not to mention the historical sites and the kayaking trip, we all found plenty to do and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable and exceeded our expectations. We loved the non-commercialized environment on Edisto Island. The people were so friendly. We can't wait to come back next year.
Thank you Richard and Mary for the best vacation we have ever taken!
