We have visited, rented and borrowed homes on Edisto for 10 years. Even when we would travel to other beaches, our kids would ask to go back to 'Crab Island'. They loved to visit the sound side of the island to search for hermit crabs in the tidal pools, dig a hole, try to catch the dolphins that swim close. Even though the wonder years are drawing to a close they still find plenty to entertain. Net casting, crab fishing, surf fishing, biking and the resort amenities keep them and friends pleased to no end.

We do recommend a trip out to dock at steamboat landing with your chicken necks and nets for some crab fishing... take the big ones home to boil up!

We love Edisto because it is such a lovely tranquil place. Where we have found the ability to unwind, unplug,(Don't worry, we have wifi and cable;)), and enjoy our family.

Lara purchased this house in 2012

We chose this home for it proximity to all things wonderful on the beach. It is close to the Atlantic and not far from the sound side of the island. The marsh and marina are just across the golf course. Being in the resort is the only way to have access to the amenities pass that offers tennis, mini golf, 2 outdoor pools, one indoor (heated), access to the beach cabana on the Atlantic side, tram service,a top notch fitness room, and so much more. Amenities cards are available upon arrival at the Wyndham Activities Center for $125 per week per family. Day rates are available. Call Activites Center for more details.843-869-4531.

Edisto has public beach accesses at nearly every block. Our favorites are# 19-22on the Atlantic, and #35 on the Sound side.

Plenty of fun beach resort options settled between Charleston and Savannah for lovely day trips. Fabulous History on the island.Even more in Charleston. Also, great local shops. Short drive to Charleston's upscale shops and Outlet Mall in North Charleston.

A few must visits on the island:

Just over the Causeway look for

King's Market(Grab a tomato pie, casserole, desserts or out of this world pimento Cheese!!! Best chocolate cake too.). The Sweet Grass Basket Stand for some local Gulla hand woven art. Finally, stop at Flowers Seafood for some fresh shrimp to take back to the house to boil, or let them fry/boil it for you!

The Serpentarium, Go Crabbing on the dock at Steamboat Landing, Botnay Bay, Pink Bus Tours.

Shop at Monkey Sea Gift shop, Edisto Surf Shop, Island Outfitters.Edistonian Gift Shop & Gallery/Surf & Turf Beachwear,Sage Studio Gallery, and more.

Favorite places to eat are Sea Cow Eatery for big Breakfasts, great sandwiches.. ok dinner too.. Great Chicken Salad, PoBoy's,and Shrimp n Grits!Awesome pies. Great Seafood at the Water Front.. Owned by the Flowers Family mentioned above, Get a great burger at Mckonkeys' Jungle Shack, and enjoy the fun and funky atmosphere there. Have a guys' night out at Whaley's or the Thirsty Fish. Shoot pool and listen to music at the bar at the Pavillion. Enjoy a more upscale meal at Grover's in Wyndham or the Old Post Office out on HWY 174. You can drive to Charleston, but there is really no need;)

Or dine at the finest table of all... The one under Settlle Down! No need to dress up.. you don't even have to wear shirt or shoes!

EXCELLENT HOME FOR FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Settle Down with our extended family. The house is clean and well kept. It's very close to the beach and the bay for boating. Everything you need is in the house and there are plenty of places for gathering. the house's many porches are wonderful.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR

  • 5 of 5
We were so lucky to be able stay at this fabulous home for the second year in a row. The home is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and spotless. Anything you need for for housekeeping has been made available to you except for sheets and towels. The photos and description of this home are spot on. It's inviting, cozy, and relaxing. Once you step through the door, you are in your own little paradise. Worries and stress melt away while you're enjoying all the available amenities. Edisto Island has wonderful restaurants, cute little shops and breathtaking scenery. The beach is located just minutes from your door. This year we were thrilled that we were able to watch dolphins frolicking in the surf!!! Fresh seafood and other goodies are readily available for you to take back, prepare and enjoy on the screened in porch. For your after dinner enjoyment, the tree frogs appear nightly to serenade you. Charleston is a short drive away. We enjoy going on Saturday and visiting the market and viewing all the lovely homes. There's also a farmers market located a few blocks down and they have fresh produce, yummy baked goods and beautiful artwork. On Wednesday, there's a neat little market on the island that is a must. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle. Do yourself a favor, choose this beautiful home and Settle Down for awhile. You'll be glad you did!!!

RELAXING RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a restful family vacation at "Settle Down" in Edisto. We had our three sons (ages 18, 21 and 23) along with my parents (both close to 80). The location of this darling house was perfect! We were able to be at the beach after a short walk, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful and quiet neighborhood after being at the beach all afternoon! This house had everything we wanted: screened porch, gorgeous and well-appointed kitchen and gorgeous but comfy surroundings! I would definitely recommend this house to any of my friends! It was wonderful!

This was our second time staying at Settle Down & we will definitely be back! Just like before, the house was very comfortable & very clean. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the back screened in porch. The house is exactly as described & pictured. We also loved the outdoor pool & hanging out at the beach. Settle Down is the place to stay & relax in Edisto. You'll love it!!!

MISS MARGE

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect week at Settle Down for our girls trip. The weather fully cooperated. It was a comfortable walk to the beach, but we opted to have the shuttle take us to the cabana. We gals don't travel light:). They even helped us with all of our stuff! The indoor pool was perfect, and they rolled the enclosure back to let sun in, but block the wind.

The home was lovely, and had every amenity we could hope for. We used the sheet/ towel service. Found a bag on the porch.. put them on.. then stripped them off. No laundry to do!! We had a blast visiting on the screened porch, listening to the frogs chatter.

We went to Charleston for a day trip. Used Palmetto carriage service for a tour. Walked the market, and went to the Tanger Outlet mall. We had a great time. Can't wait to bring our husbands and kids next time!

GORGEOUS HOME

  • 5 of 5
We (my four children and I, and my aunt who visited part of the time) had a wonderful vacation, and this house was a big part of that! It was a little bit far to the beach itself, but it was a pleasant walk, and my oldest daughter enjoyed jogging down to the water in the mornings. It was beautiful inside the house, and it had every convenience. The lovely weather and huge porches were a perfect break from the polar vortex of 2014! We enjoyed birdwatching, hiking, local restaurants, walking the beach and collecting shells (and the kids swam in the ocean, too, though it was a bit too cold for me!), and visiting local parks and Charleston itself. In the evenings at the house we enjoyed games and movies. It was practically perfect.

The only issues we personally had were (a) the lack of sheets and towels -- we'd flown into town, and had no way to bring our own, so that was very awkward, and (b) there is no public pool, and the resort pool was available at $10/person/day, which was too expensive for the six of us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about the house and Island. So pleased that you enjoyed yourselves.

As our VRBO listing and contract state, our home does not provide linen; most on the island don't. All guests are instructed to bring form home, or rent from Edisto Essentials. I am sorry that you missed that detail on your contract. It is highlighted in yellow on all contracts under Vacation Necessities. All guests should fully read contracts before remitting.

There are 3 pools as we discussed, and is posted on the page with pictures that clearly state "with amenities pass" as the caption. The best rate for a family to access them would have been the weekly family rate of $135. That would have been cheaper that $60/ day for 4 days. The amenities pass comes with a shuttle service that will take you to and from the house. The distance to the beach is posted on our VRBO page... 0.4 miles.

We have full disclosure of what the house provides, distance to the beach, and all costs involved. It is the guests obligation to fully read all materials provided in contract and on VRBO, (most information is in amenities and under about the owner), and decide if this house is in budget.

I am so sorry that you were inconvenienced, and glad that you all still had a nice vacation.
