About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible futon, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

If you love nature you will love how this house brings the outdoors inside! It is a contemporary home with oversized windows that provide a 360 degree view of a lagoon, marshes, and the ocean. The house provides 3100 sq feet of indoor living area, with an additional 1500 sq feet of deck on 3 levels that greatly increases the living area and provides amazing views. You can sit on the deck and see and hear the ocean while watching the many birds that frequent the lagoons and marshes. This property is located in private Jeremy Cay which is on the north end of the island and a short drive to the town of Edisto. The private 2.5 miles of beach is located between Jeremy Inlet and Frampton's Inlet - it is known for the excellent shelling. It is a very short walk to the beach or a golf cart rental can be arranged.


The second floor contains the main living area, a half bath, and a bedroom with private bath. It has an open floor plan with a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, large dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with top of the line appliances. There is a deck off the sitting area that overlooks the lagoon, marsh and ocean and provides expansive sunrise views. On the same level, adjacent to the dining area is a deck that offers excellent sunset views. The bedroom contains a king-size bed with a private bath (claw foot tub!)

The first floor has a large master with a king bed and a private deck- wake up to an expansive sunrise over the ocean! The private master bath has a whirlpool tub and glass shower. Across the foyer from the master bedroom are a bedroom with a queen bed and a room with a futon, both having access to a full bath.

The 3rd floor loft has a queen bed and 2 twin beds with a deck overlooking the eastern marsh and ocean. There is also a foosball table for your enjoyment.

The area under the house has a screened in porch next to the lagoon. Here you will find an outdoor shower (bug free), a table with chairs, and a ping pong table.

There are hardwood floors throughout. The house exterior has been re-sided and painted in the winter of 2014 for a new, clean and fresh look.

Why Vickie Shallcross chose Edisto Island

Edisto Island sits in the middle of the costal area of the 350,000 acre ACE basin- one of the largest intact costal ecosystems on the east coast. This protected area is home to many endangered and threatened species. Wildlife is abundant which was evident from this house we purchased in December, 2011. The design of the house brings the outdoors in and the large, high decks place you in the flight pattern of snowy egrets, ospreys, eagles, and more. If one desires to venture from the beauty and privacy of the house the ACE Basin National Refuge and Botany Bay Island are very close and provide multiple hiking and boating options in these protected settings.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, easy beach access, great shelling, non-motorized boating on site possible, crabbing and fishing on site, gournet kitchen, large outdoor living space with fantastic views of a lagoon, marshes and ocean. The many windows looking out over the lagoon provide constant viewing of the many different birds feeding. The marsh and surrounding land provide occasional views of deer feeding particularly during hunting seaon (safe territory.)

Always wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in this home for 4 summer vacations. Everything has always been comfortable, clean, and in working order. The house is lovely, spacious and inviting. Vickie has been so gracious to share her beach house and takes great care to make sure your vacation is perfect. All the decks over looking different areas of Jeremy cay are used by everyone. We don't leave once we get there, all meals are prepared, the kitchen is well stocked and enough room for all to join in. The ice maker is so nice. The filtered water is awesome, if you've ever stayed at Edisto, you will appreciate good water. The beach changes every year, this year especially so, after the hurricane last October. We spend hours treasure hunting. What can I say, we love this home, the beach, the island, nothing could be better.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review. When renters are willing to take the time to review the property I am reassured the house and Jeremy Cay is fulfilling their vacation desires. I too, when I get to the house, don't want to leave to go to restaurants. Especially in the evening as the sunsets are one of my favorite times (especially if the egrets are roosting in the neighboring lagoon.) The only thing better might be a personal chef but cooking there does not bother me since you can still be around others and you have the views. So again thanks for taking your valuable time to do this for me!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write this review. I also wanted to thank you for giving me the heads up on a few minor maintenance issues. I contacted the realty company and they have assured me all have been investigated and corrected. I appreciate you helping me to keep the house in good repair for all guests. I always have somebody available to handle in a timely way any issues that should arise. You have been a wonderful renter for a number of years and I appreciate the care you give the house and consideration you offer to me. Thank you.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic and the beach provided more shells than I've ever seen before! We saw too many birds to mention, deer and even a family of wild turkeys. Quiet, relaxing and just perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am very happy that you enjoyed the house and Jeremy Cay. The beach does attract many shells, sharks teeth and buried treasures from the old town of Eddingsville which is buried 1/2 mile or so off shore. Thanks

Best house on Edisto Island!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home on Jeremy Cay! Nature's retreat turned out to be our absolute favorite, despite visiting over 20 rental houses in the 30 years we've been vacationing on Edisto Island! We had 9 people from age 14 years to 78 years old and everyone enjoyed how spacious and well appointed the house was! Everyone could enjoy quiet time and nature watching from one of the numerous porches, reading and relaxing, fishing in the lagoon or sunning on the private beach. My elderly mother enjoyed swimming in the Edisto river, so she wouldn't get knocked over in the surf. Thank goodness we rented the golf cart (well worth the fee), it was such a quick ride to the beach and proved it's weight in gold to haul people, chairs, snacks etc. I know we'll rent Nature's Retreat in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write a review about your stay in our house. We understand how precious your vacation time is with family and/or friends and do our best to make it as comfortable and trouble free as possible. Jeremy Cay is a special setting where nature is one's entertainer I believe. Best wishes and thanks again.
