About The Owner

We dedicate this beach home to the memory of our parents who instilled values of hard work, dedication, faith and morals in us. And for their relentless teachings of how hard work can make dreams come true.

Welcome to our dream.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

Edisto Island is a unique beach to relax and enjoy. While driving past towering oaks with moss gently swaying in the breeze, we allow the everyday world to melt behind us. The smell of pluff mud, the golden colors of the sun as it caresses the wet sand, and the sparkling ocean waters calm the spirit and relax the mind. Being close to the history of plantations, Charleston, great food and clean beaches is an added bonus. High Seas was the FIRST property we viewed in our search for the perfect Beach House. Twenty something viewed properties later, we knew our heart was stolen. We hope yours will be also. Edisto is a wonderful small beach community, a paradise with easy access via car or airplane.

What makes this house unique

Riding bikes on the bike path under moss draped oaks or rustling Palmetto trees. Walking to the end of the State Park finding starfish, fan shells, conchs, and sharks teeth. Riding waves on a boogie board. Watching the sunrise from the deck of the house. Cooking shrimp and grits in the kitchen while everyone laughs and tells stories. Spending time with family. Playing games at the kitchen table. Enjoying ocean breezes on the front porch. Cherishing the peaceful comfort of the home. People watching on the boulevard! Looking for Dolphins in the ocean in front of the house. Listening to the waves while lying in bed. Riding bikes to Sea Cow, Waterfront Restaurant, or McConkeys to eat. Golfing at the local Plantation Golf Course. Driving to Sunset Point to watch the end to a perfect day at Edisto.

The Best of The Best!

  • 5 of 5

Considering that this was our 4th time at High Seas I think the fact that we keep going back just about tells you all you need to know! I will go ahead a say once again, "It doesn't get any better than High Seas"! The owners are remarkable and they do everything possible to make our stay there every year a comfortable, pleasurable and happy time! The house is always immaculate, it is equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly need right down to the tiniest of details! The views are breathtaking, the sound of the ocean is so relaxing and sunrise in the mornings is absolutely beautiful! When we are at High Seas we feel like we are doesn't get any better than that! We will never tire of the good times we have at High Seas or the beauty of Edisto Beach and will return every year!

Owner's Response: High Seas truly is blessed with the best guests-people-families-friends possible. This family happens to fall into that category. What a better way to experience what HIgh Seas or Edisto Beach has to offer than through the eyes of someone who has chosen the house as their beach home for each of the last four years. We are quite fortunate to have so many families return to High Seas each year. It is a joy for me to get to know our families and as the years pass, they become our High Seas family. Linda and her family have become like family to us. We are thrilled to have such wonderful people stay in High Seas and share all this unique home and beach have to offer to those who embrace it.

The first thing we were impressed with when inquiring about renting High Seas, was the quick response from the owner. The communication throughout the rental process was positively great! Any questions we had about the home or the area were quickly answered. I am thankful for the owner interest in their guests. A lot of thoughtfulness is put into the amenities provided with this home which sure takes a burden off travelers. Upon arriving we found High Seas to be just as beautiful as it appears in the photos - if not more so. It's truly a beautiful roomy home with much character and hospitality. Very comfortable furnishings and everything you need to make you feel "right at home." Every imaginable kitchen gadget, an abundance of dishware, cookware and electrical appliances are provided so we did quite a bit of cooking and grilling.

We enjoyed playing on the beach and in the ocean, searching for sea shells and shark teeth, bike rides around town and just hanging out at home. We enjoyed eating grilled shrimp (fresh off the boat) from Edisto Seafood. The atmosphere of Edisto Beach is very relaxed and family oriented. It was very easy to strike up conversation with other visiting families. There are no fast food chain restaurants at Edisto but there are plenty of unique eateries. We didn't get the opportunity to try all of them but we did enjoy the meals we had at Water Front, Sea Cow Eatery and during a rainy evening Bucks Pizza delivery.

We got to observe Turtle Patrol re-locating sea turtle eggs to a "turtle nursery" above the tide zone. The patrol ladies did an awesome job educating by-standers about the life cycle and research associated with sea turtles.

This is a great place to get away from everyday cares and enjoy a relaxing break. Thanks High Seas owners!

Owner's Response: We are thankful for guests like you and your family. Thank you for sharing the activities your family enjoyed, as many families look to these reviews for information. I am now craving some of that FRESH EDISTO shrimp!!! We hope guests will be on the lookout in September for all of those hatching Turtle babies. We appreciate getting to know our guests and their stories. Thank you again.

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

Great choice for family, large or small. Perfect setting, ocean views all around; nothing overlooked (amenities) by owners. Even with big family, never felt crowded or the need for privacy. So comfortable! Walking distance, or a short bike ride, to everything. If you overlook this place, you're missing out on one of Edisto's best values. Five stars.

Amazing Edisto Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the most well-appointed vacation rental we have ever stayed in! From the moment we arrived at High Seas we felt at home. The home is gorgeous and everything from sheets to beach towels to bikes to an ice cream maker is included! The linens are high end and all beds are very comfortable. We spent spring break at High Seas with our two University of South Carolina students and our two other children and everyone agreed it was an amazing, relaxing vacation! The location is ideal - walkable to restaurants and shops and the beach is steps away. We fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves each night. I would highly recommend this property - truly an amazing vacation!

Go Gamecocks!

What a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

High Seas was beyond my expectation. We were very happy with everything. the area was ideal and the Shopping places were fun. The home had all the towels and supplies you could ask for. It was a great experience for all of us. We ate out at the Waterfront Rest. and McConkeys I would give this place an A+. You need to come here to experience the joy and sights. You are between Charleston and Savanna, and can make a good day trip to either.

Owner's Response: it is always a pleasure to meet such special guests of High Seas. Thank you. I am so happy the house worked out for you and your family. Day trips to Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head are easy drives from the house. And we agree with you about the restaurants. Edisto has quirky, charming places to eat such as McConkeys, which offers a delicious peanut butter pie ;) Please return to High Seas soon.

Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to put into words how amazing this home truly is. The pictures on the website do not do this home justice, it is even more beautiful in person! This home is wonderful in the summer time with all the beach towels, sand toys, beach cart, beach chairs and bikes provided by the owners but it is just as wonderful in the winter!! We just spent a relaxing girls family weekend at High Seas celebrating my cousin completing her last chemo treatment. This home brought so much warmth to our family and not just from the fact that the heat works wonderfully :)) The owners have thought of everything from a fully stocked kitchen with 2 coffee pots to linens and towels provided and plenty of games, cards and puzzles for family fun and fellowship. All of the beds are comfortable as is the furniture in the living area. It truly felt like home and we will treasure the memories we made this weekend forever!!! I highly recommend this home anytime of the year for the most comfortable, relaxing, memorable time you can imagine!! There are also plenty of good restaurants on the island and several cute gift shops. We are already looking forward to our next visit to High Seas!!

Owner's Response: A girl's trip to Edisto was a beautiful way to celebrate your family member's completion of chemo treatments. May the healing of the treatments paired with the healing powers of loving, caring females embracing her and comforting her keep the cancer away for good. Thank you for the kind words about High Seas. It is heartwarming stories of special celebrations and lasting memories etched into lives by wonderful guests that make High Seas such a special peaceful retreat. We are thankful. Thank you again for sharing your lovely story. Many blessings to a special Lisa and her family.
