Guestbook comments from the manager

We have returned from a most enjoyable week at Herondipity! We walked the 390+ steps to the beach and watched the sun rise, we kayaked in the lagoon, we saw giant redfish and sheepshead in the lagoon, told numerous stories on the screened porch, crabbed and fished and explored Botany Bay and the Old Dominion plantation area. A wonderful week!

This is a Beautiful home, we enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We want to say "Thank You" to the owners of The Herondipity rental home, it is a very quiet neighborhood and a beautiful home with a lovely view! It was very clean and we were surprised and grateful for the lovely and delicious Anniversary cake that was dropped off upon our arrival... Our 50th wedding anniversary! We would highly recommend this getaway for anyone who wants a beautiful quiet getaway.

Edisto Bound

  • 5 of 5

This is a short review this year; what more can I say about this great house?!

This is our 4th year renting Herondipity. We are always thrilled to arrive and sad to leave, even after we spend 7 weeks there!

How nice to come back every year to this beautiful house on this peaceful island. We love it and feel like it's a second home to us. Scroll down and see my previous reviews...nothing has's still the best!

We'll be Edisto Bound again in 2017:)

Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a little late but we had a great time on the island. The house was amazing, everything that we needed and more. We are definitely coming back. Very relaxing and no crowds. The beaches were awesome. Loved being able to sit on porch or down below.

Perfect AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5

We are in the last few days of our 7 week stay at Herondipity and already feeling sad about leaving! This is our 3rd year renting and every year we like it more and don't want to leave! The house is PERFECT, the beach community is friendly and the weather has been fabulous. Bike rides in the AM, beach in the PM, good restaurants every night....what a great way to spend winter! We've taken side trips to Savannah and some of the other islands bt. Charleston and Savannah...always someplace new to explore. This year, we went to Donnelly Wildlife Area and happened to see alligators congregated closely together when the tide was out. The ranger told us there were approx. 80 gators right in our view....that was very interesting to see.

If you've read my other reviews, you know about my husband and fishing. This year he left the boat at home (thank goodness) and he fished from the shore at Store Creek. He got a few blue crabs, 2 flounder, and what we think were red drum....all delicious. He got stuck in the pluff mud while harvesting oysters. To his credit he never lost a shoe; he did come home covered in pluff but very happy that he got enough oysters for dinner!

In other reviews I mentioned the restaurants, shops, the's all great~

We obviously love this house and this island and will be back again in 2016.

This was our first trip to Edisto and it was fantastic. This home provided all we needed to enjoy our stay. It was just as described. Home is great. There is lots of room inside and lots of area outside to enjoy a sea breeze while just relaxing. We could not have asked for anything more . We ate breakfast each morning on the screened porch. We fished at the house ( had some luck). Bike riding occurred everyday. Bike paths were plentiful. This home is perfect in everyway. When does the 2015 calendar open?

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Mary thank you for sharing your home with us! We loved every minute and hated to see vacation end. My grandsons each caught their first fish in lagoon! One of my grandsons told me he was going to buy this place for me and his momma when he is a man! All kids and grandchildren said "Beat Vacation Ever!"
