Why Melissa Beach chose Edisto Island

Our home is managed by Melissa Beach, REALTOR. We have had such a pleasant experience since under her management vs the competitors. The guests have all taken note of the difference our home and the experience reflects. She has a vast knowledge of Edisto and can help you find your dream home with ease!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had such a good time on the island! It was quiet and relaxing. It was a long drive home but we made it safely! Thank you for everything!

Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this home. Kitchen is well stocked for anything you may need (bring your food of course). House is very clean, and smelled fresh. This is our 3rd time to Edisto, and we just love it, you can't beat the vibe of Edisto. The location of this house is great, you do not need a golf cart, seeing as the beach is so close. The Owner/Manager was great to deal with and very personable. She even allowed us to check in early at no extra charge, which worked out great with kids in tow. The only issue we had, was on our morning of departure 7/15, there was a power surge that knocked out a couple of the bedroom TVs and a couple of light bulbs.. no big deal for us, and hey, that's Island Living, right? Thank you for a great week making memories with family. Till next time.

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5

My family had an awesome time in this home! Just left today, and arrived home. Kitchen is well stocked (bring your food of course), house is very clean and location is great. There is absolutely no need for a golf cart, as the beach access is very close. This was our 3rd time in Edisto and we just love it, you cannot beat the Edisto Vibe. The only "issue" we had, is the morning of our departure 7/15, a power surge must have occurred and knocked out a couple of bedroom TVs and a couple of light bulbs- guess that's part of Island living though. Owner/Manager was fantastic to deal with and even let us check in early at no extra cost, which was a great surprise, as we were arriving earlier than we thought and had kids in tow. Thanks for a great week making memories in your beautiful home. Til next time. - Lacey

Left today, good time

  • 5 of 5

Spent the long holiday weekend here. Had a good time and enjoyed family and beach. Great local seafood from the blue block building off of 174 on your way in. House was nice and wife was happy. Thanks for allowing us to stay. Nice spot.

don't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Love Edisto so. Had a great week in this home. Place was clean and comfortable. We had 8 people staying up stairs and 4 down stairs. We were never crowded. The beach is very close, we enjoyed singing in the hammock listening to the ocean waves. Kitchen well stocked for cooking for our large crowd. Kids enjoyed fishing in the brackish water pond to right of the home- shrimp bait was our best success of catching fish. The teenage boys also had luck crabbing right there. Overall, this was a fair price for a home that is close to the beach and accommodates many people. We look to come back and would recommend this home to others looking to stay close to the ocean without paying an arm and a leg.

Ps-plenty of room to park our boat and golfcart

Another great Edisto Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had another great vacation at Edisto this year, in this home. Love the make over done downstairs! House is always clean and owner is always very responsive. This is our 4th year in Family Tides! The beach renovation is remarkable, we've never seen so much beach! Made us very happy to see how well Edisto bounced back from the Hurricane. Yay

Great time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was nicely located just off of the main road so that it was quiet yet well within walking distance to the beach and pond. Although there was some hurricane damages to the bottom floor so we were unable to use it, there was enough room upstairs to accommodate everyone by adding an air mattress for the kids. The house was clean, well kept and the kitchen was equipped to handle our Thanksgiving cooking. The reservation process was super easy. We definitely hope to make another trip to Edisto in the future! Good luck with the hurricane repairs!

Owner's Response: Hey Wendy! Thank you so much for the review! We are most pleased that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving in Family Tides! I am especially glad that you left us a review, in consideration of the malicious review left a couple of weeks ago. We are working hard to tear out and rebuild the lower unit, and it will be back up and running soon! We look forward to having you back down to Edisto anytime!
