About Lara

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,( FILL HOLES IN BEFORE LEAVING BEACH TO PROTECT TURTLES AND BEACH GOERS!!!) 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

Why Lara chose Charleston Area

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,and a fitness room. Amenities cards are available upon arrival at Edusto Realty. They have arranged for special pricing with oven Ridge Resort. See my Facebook page for flyer with pricing.

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

What makes this house unique

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!

My family had an absolutely wonderful time at Settle Down. The home is immaculate and the decor is BEAUTIFUL, inviting, comfortable and cozy! The well-appointed kitchen is ideal for preparing delightful home-cooked meals. The home owners were friendly, helpful, thoughtful, and responsive. Our stay at Settle Down was PERFECT.

beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that my family has stayed in this beautiful home. We opted to stay again as it was such a good fit for our family. So many vacation rentals may have a good number of bedrooms- but the actual number that these bedrooms will sleep is far less This home has a bedroom with twin beds and another with twin beds in addition to the queen bed. We love this home for it's coziness and for the tasteful way that it is decorated. It is a home that has a luxurious feel but is down to earth and family friendly.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful trip. Our group usually takes a couples trip after tax season. The weather was perfect for golf for the guys and beach for the ladies. We enjoyed the home's layout and decor! Although there were eight of us there was plenty of room. The two porches, living area and space under home provided places for us all to find quiet. The Kitchen was well stocked, and the house was immaculate. We enjoyed a great time in this wonderful home!

The home owners were helpful and responsive. I will definitely consider "Settle Down"again!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

THIS WAS OUR SECOND YEAR AT SETTLE DOWN. AGAIN WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE HOME. WE WERE SCHEDULED FOR 8 WEEKS. DUE TO A MEDICAL SITUATION WE HAD TO LEAVE EARLY. WE SOUGHT CARE AT THE ROPER HOSPITAL COMPLEX AND WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE HELP WE RECEIVED FROM ST. FRANCIS HOSPITAL AND THEIR COLLABERATIVE GROUP OF FACILITIES. i ALSO WAS PLEASED WITH THE SUPPORT FROM THE MAIN OFFICE. i SOUGHT THEIR HELP OFTEN AND THEY WERE ALWAYS VERY HELPFUL. ONE NEW PLACE THAT OPENED WAS A COFFEE SHOP RIGHT OUTSIDE THE GUARD GATE ON THE WATERWAY. NICE SETTING AND BEAUTIFUL VIEWS. IT WAS A GREAT PLACE FOR ME TO TAKE A BREAK AND ENJOY CONVERSATION WITH THE OWNERS. VISITORS SHOULD CHECK OUT THE GUEST BOOK FOR ADDITIONAL COMMENTS FROM OTHER GUESTS ABOUT WHERE TO EAT AND WHAT TO DO.

Amazing vacation rental and a wonderful value!

  • 5 of 5

We rented "Settle Down" for spring break and it far exceeded our expectations. It was meticulously clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable for a couple families. A very short drive to the beach and wonderful bike riding. We loved Edisto Island and the property just made the trip that much better. The owner was quick to respond and provided suggestions to make the trip stress free. We will definitely be renting this home again in the near future!

Perfect place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time at Edisto Beach and we loved it! We loved the relaxing and calm atmosphere of the island. You have both the Atlanta Ocean and the calm sound. We enjoyed the choice of bigger waves on the ocean side and calmer water on the sound side. We rented kayaks one day on the sound side. No problem with parking and easy access to the beaches due to beach access parking every block. The house was perfect with the porches, very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need and the outdoor shower was preferred by the boys in our group. You can ride bicycles everywhere. If you don't want commercialism and fast food, then this is the place for you!
