Overview

Edisto Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We are designated 'Beach Walk', third block from the beach. From the front door it takes 3-5 minutes to walk to the beach. Located on the corner of Myrtle and Holmes, the cottage is right around the corner from the free-water dispensary. Louis's Cottage is a 1930's bungalow. It originally stood in the Edisto National Park and was moved to this site in the 1950's. We have strived to save as much of the character and feel of the old place as possible. To us, this is what a beach experience should be. Enjoy the breezes on the screened in porch with swing and lazy chairs. (My kids like to sleep out there). Relax on the hammock in the afternoons while reading a book. ( This is my favorite pastime). There are two bedrooms upstairs and one full bath with shower. There is also a pull-out sofa bed that would comfortably sleep two upstairs with a curtain divider for privacy, if the downstairs detached bedrooms are not utilized. The downstairs bedrooms contain one full-sized bunk bed that can sleep 4, an additional full-size bed, washer and dryer and a half-bathroom. We have had as many as 10 people sleeping in the house, but recommend it for no more than 6, as it is a small cottage.

About The Owner

I am a homemaker, triathlete,

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Edisto Beach

I chose Edisto Beach because, as a southerner, I have vacationed along SC beaches all my life. To me, Edisto Beach is what Myrtle Beach's coasts used to be. It is a family beach, unspoiled by too much commercialism. It reminds me of Martha's Vineyard. Everyone prefers biking to driving their cars. The island's very design prevents too much commercial development. Yet, you have access to a golf course, shops and restaurants, water sports and some of the finest fishing around. There is a lovely walking/biking trail near our cottage that is predominantly shaded. Biking/walking/golfcart easements are on practically every road in Edisto. To me, it is the perfect getaway destination.

What makes this cottage unique

I bought this property in 2007 because it reminded me of the cottage I enjoyed with my Godparents when I was growing up. That old cottage had been moved from Darlington, SC to a site in Surfside Beach. It was imperfect, with its uneven floors, and aged appearance. It was a place where we could let our hair down and be casual and just enjoy the beach. The first time I walked into my Edisto cottage, I had that same other-world feeling - like I had stepped back in time when things were simpler and time could just slow down. In fact, I named the cottage after Louis, my Godfather. He was in the final stages of pancreatic cancer when I brought him down to view the property. He whispered, 'I love it,' and that was enough for me. He and I both felt like we were back at the beach cottage I had grown up enjoying. That is exactly the way I feel when I come home to Edisto. When I leave, I am rejuvenated and ready to get back to 2012. I love to relax in the hammock. The kids and I will pull out the fire pit and roast hotdogs near the picnic table in the side yard. My husband and I love to walk the beaches in the early morning hours when the sun comes up. The dolphins especially like the morning hours and you can see them in little herds less than 40 yards from the surf. At night, our children like to take their flashlights and go ghost crab hunting. The little white crabs scamper all over the beach and the kids chase them and sometimes they bravely catch them and chase me with them! When the bowl-like jelly fish are around, they pick them up by their rounded tops and 'chuck' them deeper in the ocean. My sons love to skimboard too. We keep it simple down there and focus on the memories that we make together. So, come on in, but kick your shoes off at the door. Enjoy the original floors (and all their character and imperfections) and remember what it was like when you were a teenager and could head to the beach in super casual comfort

What a charming house nestled under the live oak trees. It was a close walk to the ocean. The house was very comfortable with all the amenities you would need and we especially enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch at night. This is what a beach house should be like, thanks for the hospitality.

enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5
Very much as advertised
Owner had property ready @ checkin. Very comfortable arrangements. Internet was perfect, TV channels were a bit limited, but didn't go there to watch TV.
Very accessible to beach. Kitchen was utensil wise well provisioned, and grocery store was not far away
Bedrooms were comfortable, bathroom facilities small but adequate.
All in all, comfortable and appropriately priced.

Very Comfy.

  • 4 of 5
My 6 year old son and I stayed at the cottage for the week. We had friends and family come sporadically and everyone enjoyed themselves and hated to leave when their visit was up. We made friends on the beach that we hope to see next year. All in all, it was a GREAT vacation and very hard to come off EDISLOW time. Hope to see you next year.

family vacation

  • 2 of 5
Island is lovely, tranquil, non-commercial - just what we wanted. Cottage is nicely located in trees and easy walk to beach access. The interior of the main floor of the cottage itself was tidy and bright though was much too small and cramped for me, my husband and two children. It is VERY old and rickety and the lower level was not at all inhabitable. We stayed on the main floor where there were two double beds and one Queen-sized pullout. I don't see how it could possibly sleep more than 4 Americans. However, we made it work had a good time anyway.

Greatly Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
This was a late booking we made and rented approx 2 dozen homes thorughout Edisto over the years, and I myself grew up here in the 70's and started going there 40 years ago (camping at State Park, etc) and know it well.

BUT, the information in this listing is inaccurate and outdated and my family was not happy when we got to this property. Owner was contacted from onset with some immediate problems we noticed, then as we stayed I simply had no time to keep texting her as I was on vacation and when we returned, I gave her a list of all the items that we found not working, in disrepair or simply not as advertised- and to date, never heard back from her. Some items are minor such as neglect in cleaning or general repair, others are major and require some form of remodeling to rectify properly. We asked for credit/rebate back from all the monies we paid as this product was not as advertised. NADA

Price is too high and property photos were I would guess about 7 years old or so, possibly from when this owner took possession of this property from previous owners. Just three issues alone we dealt with were: 1. Lower level bedroom is heavily black mold impregnated and not able to be slept in especially if you have any bronchial type problems. 2. The rear entry door is rotten at bottom of both jams and we stuffed paper towels best as possible there to keep summer critters from getting in. 3. The screened in porch is so dirty and chain on the swing so rusted, you do not want to sit on the swing nor sit/sleep on the wicker/cushions.

Some other issues were the range hood fan is miswired and only works when kitchen entry ceiling light is turned on. The front bedroom where adults would sleep, the bed is very old & small and my wife slept 5 days of our 7 days on the entry sofa due the the bad mattress and springs on this bed broken. Towel bar was broken in bathroom and pulled from wall. Just entering this place you could see either the cleaning people were not doing their job from the monies you are required to pay for cleaning fee (plus damage insurance policy too), or the owner just pocketing this not caring, as light fixtures and counters and cooking utensils, etc were dirty and we had to wash things before we even dared to use them. NO house phone exists. NO paper products anywhere. You better bring everything you need.

FYI: I am a licensed contractor & remodeler from NC upset going into this rental in this condition and not happy at all. Buyer Beware!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
I wish it were possible to post pictures in reviews. First, I agree with others - the location is great, the community of Edisto is ideal ... however: the 2 bedrooms on the lower level are mold filled and unusable, it should not be advertised as a 4 bedroom. The sunroom is accessible from the porch but not the main living area - not horrible but again I feel it is false advertising. The sunroom is filthy. We let the kids swing on the swing in there but nothing else. The drainage pipe is cracked outside and backs up easily. The kitchen sink pipes are cracked and leak into a bucket. The kitchen cabinets had hair hanging from them from a too quick wipe down. With a little fixing up and a lower price this cottage could be nice. We were very disappointed in the condition. We are likely to return to Edisto Beach but not to this cottage. I don't expect perfection but I do think if you are renting your property out you should invest, regularly, in repairs and upgrades.
