We stayed most of a week in the great house. It's a sweet, open and airy space with great light. The screened-in porch with rockers was my favorite...felt like a treehouse. It overlooks a small marsh area frequented by herons and other birds. The birdsong in the morning was great. Easy walk ( about 2-3 short blocks) to the beach access. Also a similar distance to the shops, grocery and restaurants.
Nearby, we enjoyed amazing breakfast at the Sea Cow Cafe. "John's Omelette" will feed three easily! Delicious homemade pies there too - don't miss the key lime pie and pineapple-coconut. Out on the highway, Po Pigs BBQ is delicious and the buffet is absolutely huge. Flowers Seafood (on hwy 174) had great prices on fresh shrimp to cook at home. Whole trip was a delight, with the notable exception of "Ugly Ducking Fishing Charters." Would not recommend this guide to anyone.
Look forward to going back to Edisto again. It's a great beach. We love it most... more
