Beautifal cottage and location.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was wonderful. It was nice waking up to the sunrise every morning. We took the boat out on Big Bay Creek and caught loads of Speckled sea trout. Can't wait to go back.

Edisto Beach, a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cleanliness and setup of the cottage. The weather was perfect. The full moon rising over the ocean as well as the sunrise each morning was breath taking from the screen porch. My mother who is 87 years old always had fond memories of going to the beach as a teenager. But this beach trip was one that mother as well as the rest of the family will remember for many years. Our week in this cottage was outstanding!

Wonderful refuge!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a true Edisto Beach cottage!! It is always so clean and user-friendly. The screened porch facing the ocean is the perfect place to watch the incredible sunrises. I have been coming to this house for years for peace and relaxation.

Great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Well kept property and comfortable. Loved the screened in porch. We equipped kitchen. Just a "good 'ole beach house". The bath under the house was a surprise; assumed the 2 baths were on the main floor as there was no mention otherwise. I would rent it again.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry you were surprised about the baths. When VRBO comes up on the first page telling about the cottage, it tells a bath upstairs and a Beach bath downstairs. I hope this was not an inconvenience to you. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay enough. to rent cottage again. Thank you for renting from us, the owner

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 Edisto Beach

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
