This is a wonderful house on the perfect beach in the best location!

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a last-minute decision to take a few days off - and we picked the best weather at the best house! We consisted of 3 couples, and each had their own "space" to hang out in this spacious house. All of us had a balcony facing the beach and morning sun. The view of the sunrise every morning IS worth the Price of Admission. The house was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of dishes, pans, etc., so we only had to run the dishwasher once during our stay. The house is immediately on the beach, so we hunted for shells, played in the water, and walked the beach daily. The owners were easy to contact, and with us being last-minute, were very helpful. There is an easy, one-block walk to the Sea Cow (best breakfast), the Waterfront Restaurant, and the local Bi-lo market. The only negative aspect (and its a SMALL one!!) is the house is right next to a beach access point ( just walk-through traffic), so a couple times a day, people would walk by the house to get to the beach. However, we have stayed at various places on Edisto for 20+ years, and this was our best choice yet! (Even with the in-laws!) We plan on making Island Manor a regular family getaway.

Always Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth annual girlfriend weekend is always a delight in the Island Manor. Everything you need is all there for a wonderful, relaxing stay. Plenty of room to have your own privacy and just a step . . . and you are on the beach for shelling and exploring. We will be back!

We found this beachfront home very lovely and comfortable to stay in. Owners were very responsive.

  • 5 of 5

Our three families and grandma found a gem in Edisto. The kitchen provided more than the usual necessities. The beds were comfortable and the deco was pleasing, especially the hardwood floors which were amazing. Edisto is a great beach and this property is just steps from the water. The owner was enjoyable to do business with. We stayed over the holidays which meant we needed a mid-week check-in. The owner was eager to accommodate our schedule. With Any question we had, the owner replied immediately to answer our question or fix our problem. The only exception was he could not fix the cold temperatures the week we stayed. 🌬?. We would highly recommend this property. — The Nigro’s and Styer’s.

Home, Home on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

A 6 bedroom 3 bathroom home with a great layout smack dab on the beach within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, groceries and the good old liquor store. 5 of the 6 bedrooms front onto the ocean and all bedrooms have direct deck access. The house is very comfy with a homey living room and a large kitchen stocked with dishes and cooking utensils galore. The kitchen is in need of some cosmetic improvements but it is very serviceable. There is parking for 6 vehicles and the spacious outdoor shower room is ideal for storing all of your beach gear.

The owner was very responsive to our questions and needs right from the start of the booking process on through to the prompt return of the security deposit. There is no question that our next visit to Edisto Beach will include staying at the "Island Manor".

Fantastic location. Spacious w/ great layout.Needs a thorough cleaning.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location on the beach. The house was spacious and had plenty of oceanside deck space. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots/pans etc for the cooks in the family. The place needs a good cleaning . Kitchen cupboards-drawers had dead bugs & debris which we cleaned before using. Downstairs purple bedroom walls, headboard, & ceiling fan was covered in dust/grime. Upstairs bedrooms were much cleaner and bathrooms all clean.

Overall a nice place but we spent too much time cleaning before feeling comfortable using the kitchen Beach house owners were quite nice and emailed us a few times to check in.

Owner's Response: Our season starts in the spring with the house sparkling. Then we have week after week of rentals with only a short turn over time inbetween to sanitize the kitchens and baths. deep cleaning is not possible until late fall when we can actually get into the house again for more than an hour or 2 weekly. Being a 6 bedroom house with 12 people living hard each week, it is impossible to have things the level of cleanliness some would like. Many guests are really sloppy. Also Dead bugs result weekly in cabinets because of the spraying and pest control program in our humid and semitropical climate-lots of bugs. They cross the spraying barrier and die. This is a good thing. Live bugs are not. We will call pest control is you are getting live bugs. Also former users spread food throughout he house in all the cracks and crevices and housekeeping can't find it all, unlike I live or like to have my home used. We have found slices of bread between the mattresses for example. And Beer bottles behind furniture. Dusting behinds headboards and furniture is considering deep cleaning. Ceiling fans-i will alert my house-cleaner. We would love for the kitchen to be spotless each week but with large groups throwing things in drawers randomly and Cooking, cooking , cooking for 12 people at a time, and children and people eating all over the house, it is impossible. Image how much time it would take each week for housekeeping to clean the drawers and cupboards-all the nooks and crannies. they would never get the floors and kitchens and baths done. However, I will arrange extra cleaning if they can fit it in the overworked, summer turn over schedule. Next time in this situation, Please let the owners know within 24-48 hr. and we will pay for the housekeepers to come back and do some more cleaning at a time that will be convenient. Later than that, you will need to hire them to clean as we don't clean up after you have occupied the house as it is then your mess. It was not necessary to ruin the vacation cleaning when a simply phone call could have remedied. That is why we contact each set of guests several times and ask how things are going. Not telling us,&allowing us to fix and then complaining in the review feel wrong. Future renters have no need to be concerned, just tell us and we will fix anything that is possible and reasonable to fix. But if you don't tell us, we can't address the problem.
