About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The T-house, built from Cypress wood in the 1970’s, is loaded with charm, color, and incredible light. Only a short two blocks to the beach, it’s likely one of the best values on the island with it’s remodeled bathrooms, hardwood floors and open, spacious living room. The house offers three comfortable bedrooms.

The kitchen walls are pegboard, Julia Child style, as we are a family that loves to cook. I've included regional cookbooks for you to try during your stay including some favorite Low Country favorites.

With yearly upgrades the T-house is a terrific bang for your buck, and any season will offer you something special. It's a perfect spot for special occasions, holiday's or a romantic getaway.

The great room with it's cathedral ceilings, give you a sense of being in a tree house as the house is surrounded by Palmetto Palms and Live Oak trees. It’s the perfect size for a small family, honeymooners, nature lovers, retirees, empty nesters, history buffs and artists. You’ll love having your morning coffee on the back porch while bird watching in the nearby lagoon.

My family and I have been going to Edisto since the late 1970’s and have watched the island develop in wonderful ways. Located 40 miles south of Charleston, Edisto Island it's chocked full of fun activities including a variety of shops and restaurants. You'll be intrigued with the island’s native beauty, it’s history and the friendliness of the permanent residents.

The preservation of Edisto's history, coupled with its careful development and conservation efforts have helped it become one of the best family beaches in South Carolina. Free of high-rise hotels and traffic lights, its charm is still intact.

The island’s grocery store is a friendly laid back spot run by natives, where you can shop for groceries, wine and beer. A liquor store is next door, and two produce stands on the island offer produce in season. When you are ready to dine out, some of my favorite spots include Po Pig's Barbeque, The Old Post Office, SeaCow Eatery and The Plantation Grill where you will find low country cooking and fresh seafood. If you prefer to cook, our kitchen is well stocked and there are produce stands and two local seafood businesses that provide freshly caught fish and shrimp year round.

For golfers, the islands newly restored golf course, The Plantation Course of Edisto, is reminiscent of a scene out of Jurassic Park--it’s only missing the dinosaurs. I’m told those that have golfed there have really enjoyed the course.

For nature lovers, a wonderful bike path wraps around the island and bikes and kayaks are available to rent at “Edisto Essentials.” The nearby Ace Basin Wildlife Preserve, which also houses one of the island's plantations, is a must do for lovers of wildlife, and if you want to surround yourself with nature, you might enjoy kayak tours that meanders through the wildlife preserve. A must see is Botany Bay Plantation which you can tour yourself, or take a guided ecotour of the area that provides you with an unspoiled beach. Highway 174, your route on to the island, was recently named one of America's most scenic highways.

If you fish, Edisto Water Sports and Tackle offers both in shore fishing charts, which run in the creeks as well as off- shore offering deep water fishing in the Atlantic. Islanders can be seen seen fishing and crabbing, shrimping in the creeks around the island.

Fun local shops and galleries are sprinkled throughout the island and are perfect for rainy day shopping.

For church goers, I’ve found all of the churches to be welcoming. The historic Presbyterian and Episcopal churches with on site graveyards are listed on the Historic S.C. register. If you like gospel music, you will find it alive and well on Sunday morning at the local African American Baptist church on the island.

If you are up for a day trip, you’re situated between historic Charleston, Beaufort and Savannah. Charleston is the closer of the three, but they are all worth a visit and equally unique. You'll get everything from fine dining, history, carriage rides, boat tours that take you to places like Ft. Sumter. You'll discover museums chocked full of history, art galleries and antique stores and best of all wonderful historic homes, many which are on tour. The cities have it all.

Maybe you want to escape winter and visit this quiet, lovely island with few tourists, or perhaps you love the fall and cooler weather when oyster season begins and the shrimp are abundant. If spring is your favorite season you’ll find azaleas and wisteria vines in full bloom while watching the marsh come alive in shades of lime green. For many of us, it’s the summer that lures us to the ocean to escape the summer heat and enjoy the full bustle of the island and that’s when you will experience Edisto in full swing.

Regardless of when you choose to come to Edisto, each season has it’s own mystery and beauty. If you’re ready to get out of your rat race and kick off your shoes, then this could be your little piece of paradise. Come stay with us at the T-house, 404 Jungle Rd. You’ll be very glad you did!

Linens are available for rental on the island through Edisto Essentials, or you can bring your own. Optional cleaning service is available upon departure and my local realty service is there to assist you with any necessary needs.

This home rents for weeks only in June, July and August. Shorter stays may be available Sept - May with a 3 day minimum.

No Smoking. No Pets. No Linens. Refundable security deposit or damage waiver. Optional travel insurance and departure cleaning are available.

Mature, responsible and fun loving adults.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am a photojournalist working for a paper in the Upper Midwest. I love interior and garden design and am an advocate for protecting the environment. This T-house of ours is one of my passions. Located in the midst of my ancestral roots, 40 miles south of Charleston, I come to this gorgeous sea island of Edisto to rejuvenate myself twice a year, to unplug and relax, to visit tidal creeks and marsh areas, to see ocean views and wildlife. All of these things help prepare me for the long winters which I experience in the upper Midwest. It is unlike anything else on the coast of South Carolina. I paint, I redecorate, I cook, I visit local shops, I connect with nature and the beach, I visit old friends, and I get the house in the best shape possible for my renters. 2012 has been another fabulous year at the T-house with travelers from all over the country coming to enjoy our home while they explore the low country area. Be sure and read the guest comments to see the fun things that folks are discovering about Edisto and the lowcountry area. I look forward to hearing from you and hope that you choose the T-house as your vacation spot this year and in year's to come.

Why the Owner Chose Edisto Beach, SC, USA:
Because Edisto is off the beaten path, it has retained integrity and history that other coastal areas no longer have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My house was custom decorated by me and is filled with colorful art and fabrics. I love beauty and I like for my surroundings to be attractive, so I have worked to make that happen for my guests who stay at the T-house.
