About Cindy Hartpence

One of my best friends when I lived in Georgia always told me stories of a magical place that she grew up at named Edisto Beach in South Carolina. For years she invited me to come and with her and see this place. Finally, after 9 years into our friendship I did so, along with my three sons and her two sons during one spring break week. We had to rent a house a few down from hers because hers was already rented and she was determined we were going!!! Well, after ten years straight of vacationing on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, I had found the place I always dreamed of. The place I wanted to create memories for my sons and future grandchildren!

My friends sister was a Realtor on the island and I asked her how much the home was, we discussed, she wrote me a contract and then I spent the next five hour drive back to Atlanta attempting to convince my husband why we had to buy this home in a place he had not only never heard of, but had never visited. Three weeks later he gave in to at least go and look. He was pleasantly surprised and my home became known as 'HerFault'.

Cindy Hartpence purchased this house in 1997

Why Cindy Hartpence chose Edisto Island

Oceanfront!! Porpoise's! Loggerhead turtles! Killer Sunsets! Seashells! Shrimp boats! Turtles and more turtles!! Rare to not see nests along side of the house or even the babies hatching during the summer!

Shark tooth hunting! Shrimp boats passing by daily.Fishing Tournaments and local music at the beautiful marina. Memories forever!! Just to name a few! This is where memories are made!!

What makes this house unique

Completely rebuilt on May 2017. Downstairs apartment has no steps and all the doors inside and entering are wheelchair accessible.

Place needs some updating and upkeep. Yard is full of overgrown weeds. Parts of building are falling apart. Place smells and refrigerator smells like rotting food. Probably ought not to be on the rental market and definitely overpriced.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you found my home so disappointing. I wish you had contacted me during your stay so I could have tried to address some of the issues that you have pointed out. I have little vegetation around my home since the hurricane. The town and state has funded putting up fencing and sea oats in order to start building dunes again and these may not have looked as pretty as they will in the future. The entire downstairs was rebuilt and the entire siding of the home had been replaced to upgraded wind sustaining shake shingles. I am not sure what is falling apart but please be specific so I can see what is happening. If the refrigerator smelled I would have had housekeeping come. Please I welcome your feedback. Kindly send me any photos you may have taken so I can address these concerns. Sincerely, Cindy

The best place to stay on Edisto Island,SC

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this house and again had a wonderful experience. We take our children and grandchildren and can walk out the door of the house and enjoy the beautiful beach! When we are eating we can look out and enjoy the dolphins jumping in the ocean and the pelicans flying by . The home is always clean ,plenty of dishes ,pots and pans to cook with. We love the shower to rinse off from the beach the grandkids didn't mind having sand rinsed off because the new shower has warm water. No one can beat this location or beach experience! We've had no problems .We will be back next year .Also Cindy is wonderful to work with !

A perfect 10 Year Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My wife and I have rented properties from Tybee Island to Myrtle Beach and none were as wonderful as our stay at Edisto Beach (Cindy's Home). While searching for an inexpensive beach front property to spend a weekend at, I found nothing but condos and homes who claimed to be beach front but really were not. Cindy's home (412 Palmetto Blvd) was on the beach. It's impossible to not see the ocean and beach or hear the waves and wind. It was perfect! Everything from the new furniture to the wide open floor plan was great with lots of room! The deck was the perfect place to relax, take in some sun, have a cold drink or seven... It was close to everything too... Crab legs at Whaley's (highly recommended), coffee bar a block away and gift shopping fun too. Nothing was more than a 3 minute drive. If you like a place you can feel at home in, if you like beautiful skies and surf, if you like a classic quiet beach home close to it all; this is your place. We will be making this an annual tradition.

My family and I had a wonderful vacation here. The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed eating meals at the home as well as eating out . The view was gorgeous! We loved looking and listening to the beach while we were there. We also loved seeing the sea turtle eggs hatch while we were there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and we are coming back for a week next year . Also Cindy the owner is wonderful to work with.
