Cottage has been remodeled and decorated to charm. Located on one of the few dirt roads where Majestic Oaks and Palmettos provide a canopy. The cottage is nestled on a beautiful wooded lot. Just between the beach and marsh you easily experience sunrise or sunset. Two screened in porches off living room double your living and the entertaining dining below is big enough for the whole family. Old fashion sleeping porch with twin hanging bed is perfect for naps and sleep outs.

About Tina Zimmerman

I love having guest at the Sea Island Cotton Cottage. Edisto is one of the few remaining beaches surrounded by natural beauty. Lowcountry living in the Carolina's from the amazing sunsets, great seafood where nature abounds is an experience we want everyone to have.

Tina Zimmerman purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tina Zimmerman chose Charleston Area

Best of island living wtih easy access the beach, Edisto is not far from our home. Just driving the rural back roads to get to the cottage begins the experience. We can't wait to share this with you and provide a vacation filled with goodness. You'll find yourself realizing this is exactly how life should be!

What makes this cottage unique

Sea Island Cotton Cottage has the best of all, with the easy walk to the beach you get your dose of sunshine and sand. Then when you need to relax return to the clean, crisp cottage nestled in the oaks and palmettos providing shade and coolness. Plenty of outdoor living on the two screened in porches with entertaining below the house already setup wtih grill, fish pot and custom built bar.

Wonderful! Roomy! Close to beach! Darling!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a much needed single family vacation. I have twin16-year-old boys and they even thought it was "cool". Ha! I loved the layout of the home with the center living room to be together. Large kitchen and plenty of bathroom space. All very clean and not cluttered. Underneath home was fun to grill, play games and loved the outdoor shower!!! Loved having washer/dryer too. Screen porches were huge bonus--ate on back porch and I would read on the front porch at night so I could hear the waves! It is a short walk to the beach that is big, deep, and clean! If hauling a lot for the day, you can drive quick and park free. The water was wonderful and shells were plenty! Plenty of space for peaceful beach time even with many others around. Several visitors would pop up a canopy and sit for the day. You can go back and forth, easily, if needed. Both the house and beach are pet friendly, although we chose not to bring ours on the plane. The hanging bed got used every day and night and we enjoyed exploring the island. I was surprised at how woodsy the area was!! I called in breakfast at the Sea Cow which was yummy and wonderful to pick up and avoid lines/wait. The grocery store has great options and plenty of obvious choices for the whole family. We even did Subway at the beach for lunch one day. The guys went to the golf range and enjoyed that also. The gift and surf shop by Sea Cow and the little strip mall is a fun time killer as well. Cute things.

We did a day trip to jet ski out of Isle of Palms--Tidalwave Watersports Safari was a blast!! Full speed through the waterways to Capers Island. And we did Charleston on the way back. (But definitely try to avoid leaving Charleston before 3:00 to avoid traffic… Best to wait, have dinner, then head back to beach house later evening). We also did the Segway tour in Savannah. We all enjoyed that too but a very basic overview of several squares, homes, etc. Fun way to get around and not walk so much. I heard good words about the movie tour that they do as well. If you do that know you can park free at the Adventure Tours in Motion location.

We can't thank them enough for an amazing beach stay, darling cottage, and memorable trip!! Loved everything about it! Whatever you do with your time, you will love being "home"!!

Fun Cousin's Week

  • 5 of 5

We had 'Cousin's Week' this year at the cottage. Perfect for all of us from front porch to back porch with bed swing for all of our early morning and late night reminiscing. Cottage well equipped and beautifully decorated. We had a rainy week, but that didn't stop us from having FUN.

Tina is a wonderful host and made sure we had what we needed for making these life long memories.

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this lovely beach cottage. It is obvious that so much thought and love were put into every last detail. The cottage is charmingly decorated but not fussy--we felt very comfortable and at home. We had extended family join us at various points during the week, and even when the house was full, we did not feel on top of each other. The 2 screened porches and private decks off the bedrooms helped with that. We spent most of our time on the screened porches and especially loved the swinging bed. We had everything we needed.

The house is an easy walk to the beach, even with a toddler and all the associated beach gear. It was our first visit to Edisto, and we loved the laid back, uncommercialized atmosphere.

Tina's communication was great from start to finish. She provided so many helpful details for our stay. We appreciated that our dog was welcomed--it wouldn't have been a true family vacation without him! We certainly hope to return for another stay and this great cottage.

Couldn't Have Been Better

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Tina's house for the whole month of March and had a great time. The house is on a quiet, shady lane that is only a very short walk to the beach. It's so close you can hear the waves breaking on shore. We spent a lot of time on the decks and screened porches, especially the back porch with the comfy hanging, swinging bed. Though the weather was cold for a bit we enjoyed watching movies and our Firestick on the big living room tv. There were plenty of nice towels and linens and dinnerware, glassware and utensils. The house was very clean and in good shape when we arrived and Tina was great to deal with as far as communication and planning. Would highly recommend her place for an Edisto vacation and the best part is, it's an easy walk to our favorite Edisto breakfast place, the Seacow Eatery!

Relaxing stay in a charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved Edisto and would definitely stay at Sea Island Cotton Cottage again. It is exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, well-equipped. We didn't have a care in the world for a solid week of needed rest. Quiet spot, yet still very convenient to grocery store, restaurants and beach access. Loved everything about it!
