This is the 3rd “Locke Nest” for us. The first was a house on Dorothy Street that we built in 1978 when we were “nesting” shortly before our first child was born. Locke’s job as an airline pilot took us to Dallas, Memphis, and New Jersey and that, plus our 3 young children, made it hard for us to keep up with a house so far away so we sold it in 1986—always knowing that we’d be back. In 2005, we bought our condo and completely renovated it with new floors and beadboard paneling. I sewed new draperies and Locke , with help from a friend, built the entertainment center. Our backs were still aching from doing all the work ourselves when the whole building was totaled in a fire on January 23, 2010. It took 18 months to rebuild and we moved back in in August, 2011. We had been a little bit underinsured , so it was back to work for us—this time refinishing and painting furniture from consignment shops and cleaning and refinishing the few things that survived the fire. Our insurer had totaled everything and told us it was not worth saving but we felt we had to try—especially on the entertainment center—so we worked for many, many months to make things nice again.
Edisto is very special to us. Our first son, Michael, learned to walk here. Working on our renovations until we fell into bed kept us sane and helped us sleep at night when our second son, Brian, was leading an infantry platoon in Iraq. Our third son, Paul, asked Susan to marry him on Edisto and thereby got us the daughter we always wanted. And just this year, Paul and Susan got that special phone call telling them that they had been chosen to adopt our granddaughter, Samantha, here.

It's the best--not overbuilt, overpriced, overcrowded or over commercialized. It's beautiful and peaceful. And, it's near Charleston where we met and married and have many connections today.
WE CAN REST and RELAX HERE!!
What a great trip! This was our first trip to Edisto and we really enjoyed this condo with lots of extra touched that made it feel like home. Great for our family of 4. We did the Wyndham family pass in order to use the pools, etc. It was a little pricey at $200 extra per week, but the pool is something the kids look forward to on vacation, so it was fine. The Wyndham staff is not very helpful but I will not let that reflect my rating in this particular unit-we thought it was great. Thank you!
This Condo is perfect for two couples! The place was clean and in exellent condition, could not be better. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for renting a condo in Edisto beach, to take a close look at Snowbirds! We would defenetly rent this property again.
My husband and I stayed in this condo for a month and loved it. The furnishings were lovely and the condo well cared for. The location was great - handy for golfing, beach walking and going on day trips to Charleston, Savannah, Beaufort and other places. We had never been to South Carolina and this was the perfect place to experience the beauty of low country and learn the history of our country that took place in this area. We highly recommend this property.
