Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Firefly Cottage. We love the location, amenities, and peacefulness of this cottage. The screened porches are great. Edisto Island is beautiful and offers many opportunities to explore. There are many picturesque places to see if you explore the back roads. You can see the water on a a number of boat tours, Botany Bay Ecotours is great, and finally, relax on a beach. St. Helena Sound beach is calm while the ocean front beaches have waves. We have vacationed here for years and can say Firefly Cottage is as good as it gets.

Owner's Response: Linda P, Your review made me laugh! Edisto Island is truly the place to go and get away from it all. Large stores, such as Walmart, are 45 minutes away but there is an BI-LO on the island that carries a great selection of groceries. Come back for a visit West Ashley is the closest store. Cathi

Cozy cottage as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Very clean upon arrival. Screened porches were quiet and peaceful. Multiple bathrooms made guest visits comfortable for all. Near beach and dog friendly community. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The house was just the right size for my family - 5 adults and two toddlers. It was great to be able to take my dog with us. The house was clean and had everything we needed. I would recommend it for anyone who didn't want to be right by the ocean. The few minutes' drive to the beach wasn't bad but it did get a little tedious driving in and out of the resort every time we went to the beach or needed something from town. We particularly enjoyed the screened in porch and ate most of our meals out there. Even during the day, it wasn't particularly hot and was very pleasant in the mornings and evenings.

Owner's Response: Alison, So glad you enjoyed your stay at Firefly Cottage. There is something magical sitting on the screened porches of the cottage and looking at the old Live Oak trees. Seems like it makes the food and conversation so much better! You are right, always going thru the main entrance of the resort isn't the quickest way, but the only way by car, to get to either the ocean or sound beaches. At times I wish I had wings as it is only a few blocks by flight and about the 8-9 minute drive. We hope that you will come back and enjoy the cottage again! Cathi

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

This was the sixth time we have stayed at Firefly Cottage and as in the past we were pleased with the time spent there. The location was perfect for us as we were within walking distance to the golf shop and tennis courts, a short bike ride to the beach access we prefer, and less than 3 miles from the restaurants we enjoy. If you like to golf this is the place to be as it is located on the 5th fairway. The course was in immaculate condition. Don't worry about losing golf balls as a lot of them end up outside the back screened porch - collected about 30 that were left in the yard during our stay as there is a small water channel between the yard and fairway (must have thrown back another 15 to the golfers). Fishing on the beach is good or you can get a charter trip. Collecting the state seashell, the Olive shell, is a lot of fun as they are somewhat hard to find but when you do find one you feel like you have gained a prize. There are many varied types of shells to be found and my wife and granddaughter collects them and makes seashell wreaths for our friends.

There were a few very minor issues that was brought to the new owners attention and we were told they would be corrected immediately. Other than for those I would have given our stay a rating of 5. Edisto may not be right for a family that wants the congestion of a more commercialized area but if you desire a slower pace, great beach, and good food it will meet your wants. We would certainly recommend this location for a family that wants a separate unit that provides more privacy and we will be going back.

Owner's Response: John, You are such a joy! It is always so wonderful when I see you making a reservation for your next stay as it means that the cottage is enjoyable for you and your family. The new owners came right in and had the items repaired that you told us about. They are just as dedicated to keeping the cottage up and adding their personal touches. Pet Friendly will remain also! Hope to have you return to Edisto Island and Firefly Cottage in the near future. Thank you!
