About the property

2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This property has been described as the prettiest place on Edisto. It is accessed via a long avenue of oaks winding through Blue House Plantation which dates back to the 1830’s and remains a working farm as of today. The property is very private and resides in a gated community of approximately 10 homes.

Our home sits on a point with the front being isolated from the adjacent properties. Private, serene and peaceful. Once you arrive you would think you were the only people on Edisto Island. The front porch fully overlooks Blue House Creek. Rock in the rockers enjoying the birds or read a book. The pristine view directly ahead is an old tree lined plantation. To the right 4 miles away is historic Wadmalaw Island. To the left is a large marsh area bounded by Blue House Creek.

This warm and sunny house is an open concept with two bedrooms adjoining the living area . Each bedroom has a queen size bed and a private bath.They each also have a full view of the oak trees , marsh and creek. In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a spacious sleeping loft area with a single bed. The kitchen has a sink, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and garbage disposal. It is fully equipped to facilitate almost any low country dish you can dream up. Enjoy your low country meal at the large dining table or outdoors on the picnic table.

The bright living area with is open with water and marsh views . A TV with local TV only and Wi-Fi is available.

There is also a large washer and dryer and mud sink in the laundry room .

Downstairs you will find a hammock to rest in the gentle breezes. It can be moved into the yard to better enjoy the island sun.

Enjoy the fire pit for cooking. It can be used for roasting oysters or cooking steaks over the open coals. Also great for just being outside on a beautiful starry night and having a bon fire.

We have a private floating dock and pier head, perfect for throwing the cast net, catching crabs and for fishing for trout or red fish. Blue House creek is very deep and usually has a minimum depth of 5 feet to the main channel at low tide with typically being about 11 feet at high tide. Great for bringing your kayak, paddle board or boat and keeping at the dock. Steamboat Landing is just minutes away by boat so launching your craft is not a problem.

This is very special property that will surely be a treat to anyone who stays here. It’s very peaceful and serene all year round. Due to the uniqueness of the property large gatherings or parties are not permitted.

About Craig

I'm a professional engineer who loves the coast. I spend as much time as I can here on the island and am active in The Presbyterian Church On Edisto Island. Also active with the Development Commission in Orangeburg County. I enjoy aviation and fishing. I spend most of my time in Bamberg County where I reside in a home I restored that was built in 1880.

Craig purchased this house in 2006

Why Craig chose Edisto Island

Me and my family have been coming to Edisto since the 60's. Spent many summers here with parents, sisters, aunts, and uncles. Worked on the island in the 70's and realized at some point of my life I would return. Purchased this home and I love it. It's a special place.

What makes this house unique

This property is a unique that is sits out on a point and you will think you are the only person on Edisto. It's a very quite place away from the traffic and noise of the beach. It has a dock that offers wonderful fishing and crabbing. Wonderful views of sunsets and birds.

Peaceful Perfection

We LOVED our stay on the creek. Craig was a dream host. The house and property are well cared for and comfortable. The paddling from the dock was wonderful. Thank you so much! We hope to be back soon!

Quite secluded nice home

  • 5 of 5

Located more than a mile from a main road at the back of an old plantation. The plantation is now a working farm and you wind down a farm lane and then through a security gate to get to the house. It is located on a tidal creek that reaches the ocean a few miles away. The creek is subject to the ocean tides so it flows out then changes and flows back in. It rises and drops over five feet. There isn’t a great floating dock, that provides good fishing, crabing, and boating. Six miles down the road is The small town of Edisto Beach with good ocean beach access, good grocery store, and several nice reasonable restaurants. The locals are very friendly and live a relaxed laid back life where they don’t have to worry about locking their doors. Several “with tongue in cheek” said please don’t tell people about Edisto. They don’t want the influx of more people.

Paradise Revisited...

  • 5 of 5

Another chance to visit our favorite place on Edisto... As the sunset faded, we looked down on the creek and saw the reflection of the crescent moon and feathered clouds bathed in the remaining pastels of the sunset. Nature's masterpiece! Ducks were swimming, birds were flying about and the Deer were beautiful sporting their thick dark winter coats. We enjoyed absolute peace and quiet, in a home that makes you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door.

Thanks Craig , once more for sharing your home with us! Joy & Tim
