About Karin Gleaton
The Belsers and Gleatons are: Karin, a special education teacher and her husband Al Gleaton, a Columbia homebuilder. Hugh, a retired naval officer. Karin and Hugh Belser graduated from the University of South Carolina in the 70's. While attending Carolina it was a Spring Break ritual to book large houses on Edisto Island and gather friends for a week of beach fun. That tradition continued off and on during the 80's and 90's. In 1994, we discovered and bought an undeveloped, wooded lot on Myrtle Street . Al Gleaton, began to build Sea Cloud in 1995. It was his masterpiece and our pride and joy. As Karin is fond of quoting, '"The beach is where you go to slow down; Edisto is where you go to stop'"
Karin Gleaton purchased this House in 1995
Why Karin Gleaton chose Edisto Island
Few can match Sea Cloud for comfort, utility, and value. First, the house is thoughtfully designed, solidly built and well insulated = quiet and cool. Secondly, we personally manage the property. Finally, it's a big house where four couples can choose to spread out or congregate in the open main salon/dining area. Our faithful patrons (over half our bookings are friends or repeat visitors) are our best advertising. Their testimonials emphasize the care and attention we give them while they visit our 'home away from home.' Capital improvements in the recent past include new hardwood floors, replacement front deck landing, new roof shingles, new beds, two new television sets, new A/C system, new washer dryer, kitchen fridge, Keurig coffemaker and new barbecue grill.
What makes this House unique
Sea Cloud is an architectural gem featuring a Charlestonian double staircase leading to a 40 foot wide veranda. The front porch has comfortable chairs, tables and a chaise lounge. The screen porch on the back deck overlooks a shady backyard with lush St. Augustine grass. We're proud of the craftsmanship and thoughtful design of our beach house. For example, Sea Cloud has a separate mirrored vanity and wash basin in each bedroom, plus hot and cold water in the two downstairs outdoor showers. The top level has a length-of-the-house loft area with four beds for the younger set. We also have a second full-sized refrigerator on the back porch for cold beverages. Finally, who else, but Sea Cloud, delivers the (Charleston) Post & Courier newspaper to your doorstep every morning ?

Our best stay at Edisto
Our time at Sea Cloud was wonderful, the house is very well designed for family groups and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking tools and made preparing and serving meals go smoothly.
The walk to the beach is short and directly leads to beach access area which is very convenient. The owner is quickly responsive to communications and very helpful in making the rental process very pleasant.
Loved our stay at Edisto Beach
Beautiful home! Perfect place to rent at Edisto Beach. It had everything we needed and owners were so accommodating. We will be back.
Our Family Vacation
Sea Cloud is a lovely place to relax.
We really enjoyed the non-commercial aspect of the island. Not one Starbucks!!!!! The local restaurants we visited were great.
Lots of room in the house. There were 6 of us (we thought there would be more of us but some of the family couldn’t make it) and we had more than enough room. Mom spent most of her time on the screened in back porch. We loved that the walk to the beach was short.
I love the Navy touches.
If we choose the island again, we will definitely choose Sea Cloud again.
Thank you so much! We'd love to have you at the Sea Cloud again!
Family Vacation paradise
Once a year we take the grands on a Memorial Day weekend getaway. This year our party included our 96 year old grandmother. Karin was great answering questions and concerns we had to prepare for our trip. One block off the beach was so nice. We walked for the most part. The house was so accommodating and had everything we needed and more to dine in. Beautifully decorated and clean. Absolutely loved front and back porches to relax and watch the deer in the evenings. There was so many things we loved about staying here. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We made wonderful memories with our family!
ladies beach retreat
We were very well accommodated by Karin and her brother at Sea Cloud. The house was spacious and clean, and the cleaners at our request used scent-free cleaning products prior to our stay. Some of us could be listening to music in the living area and others enjoying the back deck, reading in total quiet at the same time.
The property is a short walk to the beach, and we also enjoyed renting bikes from a local service who dropped them off for us and picked them up again.
Would definitely rent again.
Thank you! We'd love to have you back!
Comfortable, great location. Perfect for family gatherings.
We really enjoyed having our family together in this well furnished and very comfortable home. Plenty of room to spread out with bedrooms configured to allow for privacy as needed. Kitchen very well equipped. Overall a great experience.
