This is an older Edisto home! Nothing fancy, just sweet beach living with a view that goes on forever! Is a great home to rent directly on the beach! Call us today to book 'Her Fault'.

About Cindy Hartpence

One of my best friends when I lived in Georgia always told me stories of a magical place that she grew up at named Edisto Beach in South Carolina. For years she invited me to come and with her and see this place. Finally, after 9 years into our friendship I did so, along with my three sons and her two sons during one spring break week. We had to rent a house a few down from hers because hers was already rented and she was determined we were going!!! Well, after ten years straight of vacationing on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, I had found the place I always dreamed of. The place I wanted to create memories for my sons and future grandchildren!

My friends sister was a Realtor on the island and I asked her how much the home was, we discussed, she wrote me a contract and then I spent the next five hour drive back to Atlanta attempting to convince my husband why we had to buy this home in a place he had not only never heard of, but had never visited. Three weeks later he gave in to at least go and look. He was pleasantly surprised and my home became known as 'HerFault'.

Cindy Hartpence purchased this house in 1997

Why Cindy Hartpence chose Charleston Area

Oceanfront!! Porpoise's! Loggerhead turtles! Killer Sunsets! Seashells! Shrimp boats! Turtles and more turtles!! Rare to not see nests along side of the house or even the babies hatching during the summer!

Shark tooth hunting! Memories forever!! Just to name a few! This is where memories are made!!

A perfect 10 Year Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My wife and I have rented properties from Tybee Island to Myrtle Beach and none were as wonderful as our stay at Edisto Beach (Cindy's Home). While searching for an inexpensive beach front property to spend a weekend at, I found nothing but condos and homes who claimed to be beach front but really were not. Cindy's home (412 Palmetto Blvd) was on the beach. It's impossible to not see the ocean and beach or hear the waves and wind. It was perfect! Everything from the new furniture to the wide open floor plan was great with lots of room! The deck was the perfect place to relax, take in some sun, have a cold drink or seven... It was close to everything too... Crab legs at Whaley's (highly recommended), coffee bar a block away and gift shopping fun too. Nothing was more than a 3 minute drive. If you like a place you can feel at home in, if you like beautiful skies and surf, if you like a classic quiet beach home close to it all; this is your place. We will be making this an annual tradition.

412 Palmetto Blvd, Edisto Beach,SC

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation here. The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed eating meals at the home as well as eating out . The view was gorgeous! We loved looking and listening to the beach while we were there. We also loved seeing the sea turtle eggs hatch while we were there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and we are coming back for a week next year . Also Cindy the owner is wonderful to work with.

Great Views!

  • 4 of 5

We loved it here! The best part is being able to bring our standard poodle who loves the beach! The ocean is just steps away and the deck is perfect for reading and watching the ocean view. The house has all windows in the living area and cooking was a delight! My view was the horizon and I loved it! It is quite typical for a beach house and we found it very comfortable. We had a issue with the outside lighting, called the owner, and she took care of it! She was very accommodating! We will return again!

We will return again!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you had a good stay! A home so close to the ocean gets much wear and tear so thank you for your patience!! Please come back again soon!!

Unacceptable Beginning, Poor and Disappointing Response

  • 1 of 5

This was a trip planned especially for my mother who was recovering from breast cancer surgery. We arrived at the beach house just before 4:00 p.m. To our surprise, we discovered that there were absolutely no toiletries in the house. The biggest surprise was, NO TOILET PAPER. I would not have minded if we would have been at least informed of this. When we asked about the complete lack of toiletries, the response was that guests steal them. The bed linens and towels we ordered were also not at the house. When I called Edisto Essentials, I just got their answering machine stating that they do not deliver after 4, and they close at 5. I had to call the owner, who managed to contact them, as that was the only way we were going to receive our linen request.

Here are a few other issues we discovered once we were inside the beach house.

-Only one bedroom TV working. Two TV's not working due to any remote batteries. At least one TV not working, even after we purchased batteries.

-Bedroom upstairs on right had bugs. Not sure what they were, but I saw about 100 small insects on walls, many above the bed. I initially killed most of them, but there were m

-Bedroom door upstairs facing street has panel torn away. Someone could catch a piece of clothing on it, and possibly rip it off.

Bunk bed rail screws are falling out. A child or adult could accidentally trap an arm or leg in between the rail, possibly causing a bad injury.

The bedroom upstairs facing the beach was missing a window covering, which meant that we had to provide a window covering for privacy.

After that first introduction to this beach house, I wanted to leave and take my family to a hotel. However, after sleeping on it we decided that the trouble to move and the loss of money we used to pre-pay for the beach house would probably be worse than staying. When we handed the keys in after our stay, we started to explain the issues we had experienced to the beach house management staff, but quickly realized that they did not care. The only response they gave us was that not receiving the linens was not their fault.

When we returned home, I documented our issues in an email that I sent to the owner. She stated that she would check on the items of concern. After a few days, the owner wrote back to me and acknowledged the issues; however she refused to consider any monitory compensation.

One star because of the hugely disappointing start.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, what this guest did not put in his letter of discontent is that prior to his arrival there were weather issues on the west coast and he had called me and said they may decide not to come and he knew it was too close to refuse a refund. i told him that was fine and I would allow him to stay another time if he couldn't make it. He decided he would come anyway. He told me traveling had been long and difficult. I felt terrible about the toilet paper not being there upon his arrival and he called me and I immediately had toilet paper brought to him within ten minutes of the call. The guests arrived at 4:00 and the toilet paper was immediately brought and then the linens were delivered at 5:00 and these were the only concerns I knew of during his stay until after he left. Televisions: There are 6 televisions in the house with a huge screen one in the main living area.These were working. The insect issues may have been small love bugs that being on beachfront in a home that sits on the sand and at times get into all the houses like this, depending on the time of the year. The exterminator found no sign of any. I never found what he was speaking about when it came to a torn door panel. The railings on the bunk bed had a screw missing but presented no danger, due to the other screws being solidly in place. He was not using this room at all ever and perhaps just adding items to his list in order to receive a refund. He never mentioned this to me or any of his complaints while we spoke on the telephone. I called him the next day to see if all was OK and he didn't say it wasn't or anything about any of these other items. He wrote me an email after his stay with his concerns that he put in this review. I offered him three nights stay,which is what he had booked at absolutely no cost. He told me this would not work that he lived on the west coast and I told him he could transfer it to his friends or family who do live in the area and stayed during that time as well. He asked for a financial compensation and when I politely declined he wrote the negative review. This is a wonderful old beach house that sits directly on the ocean sand and is not perfect but is comfortable, child and pet friendly , loved and a place where many wonderful memories are made.I will always do all I can to help any guest love it as much as my family and I do. There are two reviews that follow his review right after his stay. Please look at these. Thank you so much! Cindy
