About Grace Sanders

i have been coming to Edisto since a child, even when there were no paved roads. Our children spent the summers here and our grandchildren and great-grands like to visit. We feel very lucky that the island has not changed a lot over the years and is still a family beach.

Grace Sanders purchased this cottage in 1955

Why Grace Sanders chose Charleston Area

My father purchased this property in 1939. The first cottage was built in 1955 and his cottage in 1957. After his death in 1973 we remodeled the cottage and started renting it. By having our personal cottage next door, we can make sure everything is in tip top shape.

What makes this cottage unique

Will rent linens and towels if needed

This house was even better than we thought it would be, great house.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised , the view from the screened porch was awesome so we ate all of our meals outside. Grace is an absolute doll and we can't wait to come back next year, this was truly the best vacation ever. If you are looking for a relaxing stress free vacation , this is the place to go.

Wonderful - Great Location and View!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage is just what the doctor ordered! :) My family(Husband, two adult daughters,and in-laws(Husband parents) ) all stayed in the cottage. It was perfect! This location was ideal for a relaxing beach vacation! Only 1 hr South of Charleston(we went into town a couple of days. Otherwise, we enjoyed the Edisto Beach hospitality! Wonderful Restaurants, fresh seafood to enjoy. We really didn't want to leave this wonderful jewel of a beach. In addition, the owner Grace was great to work with, very responsive to e-mails. She even stopped by to make sure we were enjoying the cottage. If you're looking for wonderful beach vacation with family/friends. Please don't miss out on this wonderful cottage & location. Spectacular views, we saw dolphins a couple of days lying on the beach reading. Our favorite feature of the cottage was the enclosed screen with Rocking chairs, table and chairs..we spent a lot of time on that porch! :)
