About the Property
5 BR/ 3 bath, 193 yards to the beach, 10 blocks from Whaley's Bar & Grill
Sea Cloud features four equally sized bedrooms on the main floor. Each room has a queen-sized bed. Each of the bedrooms on the first floor are separated by a full bathroom, accessed via the hallway connecting the bedrooms and every bedroom has a separate mirrored vanity and sink. The spacious upstairs loft level runs the entire length of the house and has four more beds (2 queens and 2 twins), a sunny children's play area, and a spacious bathroom with a double basin vanity, skylight and full bath & shower enclosure.
The vaulted-ceiling main salon combines the living room, dining room and a superbly equipped kitchen. The 160 square foot screened deck, attached to the kitchen, is carpeted and features a second full sized refrigerator for your extra drinks. The back deck was designed and built around a 50 foot tall ancient live oak tree. There are two large, walk-in shower stalls (with hot and cold water) on ground level and a large barrel-style charcoal BBQ grill. The house is built 10 feet off the ground which helps capture the ocean breeze and allows covered parking underneath the house for several large cars. The lush St. Augustine grass back yard is partially shaded by mature palmetto and oak trees.
Sea Cloud is on Myrtle Street, which is one street over and parallel to Palmetto Boulevard, the main drag. Being off Palmetto Boulevard is very cool for two reasons: 1) it's quieter and 2) it's safer for children to play in the front or back yard.
Whaley's Restaurant, our fave local dive, is 10 blocks away, down Myrtle--literally a short 10 minute walk. Whaley's claim to have the coldest beer and best hamburgers on Edisto!

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: The Belsers and Gleatons are: Karin, a special education teacher and her husband Al Gleaton, a Columbia homebuilder. Hugh, a retired naval officer. Karin and Hugh Belser graduated from the University of South Carolina in the 70's. While attending Carolina it was a Spring Break ritual to book large houses on Edisto Island and gather friends for a week of beach fun. That tradition continued off and on during the 80's and 90's. In 1994, we discovered and bought an undeveloped, wooded lot on Myrtle Street . Al Gleaton, began to build Sea Cloud in 1995. It was his masterpiece and our pride and joy. As Karin is fond of quoting, '"The beach is where you go to slow down; Edisto is where you go to stop'"
Why the Owner Chose Edisto Beach, SC, USA:
Few can match Sea Cloud for comfort, utility, and value. First, the house is thoughtfully designed, solidly built and well insulated = quiet and cool. Secondly, we personally manage the property. Finally, it's a big house where four couples can choose to spread out or congregate in the open main salon/dining area. Our faithful patrons (over half our bookings are friends or repeat visitors) are our best advertising. Their testimonials emphasize the care and attention we give them while they visit our 'home away from home.' Capital improvements in the recent past include new hardwood floors, replacement front deck landing, new roof shingles, new beds, two new television sets, new A/C system, new washer dryer, kitchen fridge, Keurig coffemaker and new barbecue grill.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sea Cloud is an architectural gem featuring a Charlestonian double staircase leading to a 40 foot wide veranda. The front porch has comfortable chairs, tables and a chaise lounge. The screen porch on the back deck overlooks a shady backyard with lush St. Augustine grass. We're proud of the craftsmanship and thoughtful design of our beach house. For example, Sea Cloud has a separate mirrored vanity and wash basin in each bedroom, plus hot and cold water in the two downstairs outdoor showers. The top level has a length-of-the-house loft area with four beds for the younger set. We also have a second full-sized refrigerator on the back porch for cold beverages. Finally, who else, but Sea Cloud, delivers the (Charleston) Post & Courier newspaper to your doorstep every morning ?
