About Leeanne and Don Beard
When we first moved to Charleston we always heard about the 'barrier islands' of Sullivan's, Isle of Palms, Seabrook and Kiawah. We visited them often for many years. I actually read about the Island of Edisto in 'Southern Living' magazine. We decided to make the short drive down and discover it for ourselves. WOW!! It takes you back to the days of life on the beach before high rises and ugly condo complexes and miles of not seeing the water for retail establishments, t-shirt shops, broken glass and no parking... Edisto is completely the opposite of Myrtle Beach. I knew that I wanted to retire there one day. The purchase of the condo was the first step. We rent the condo ourselves and clean it ourselves. The linens are Egyptian cotton linens and the place has been totally 'renovated' to fit a modern lifestyle. We hope you enjoy the pure, safe beaches of Edisto as much as we do.
Leeanne and Don Beard purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Leeanne and Don Beard chose Edisto Beach
Edisto is a well-preserved, historical area of the lowcountry. It is friendly for couples on honeymoon, families on vacations with pets, and retirees who are traveling south to escape the cold northern winters. The Edisto indians help carve the history long before large plantations of indigo and rice were grown. You can still see real, working plantation today in Edisto. It is a vacation that you can combine with inland treasures, intercoastal waterway trips, and relaxing on the beach. We call Edisto .....EDISSLOW.....because life's stresses disappear as you cross the intercoastal bridge and land on the beach side of life.
What makes this Cottage unique
This unit has been totally renovated. Granite countertops, porcelein tile floors, new kitchen, and bath make this unit relaxing and comfortable. You can overlook the palms swaying in the breeze on your own personal view of the 17th fairway. We think you will find the privacy and quiet nature of Edisto a perfect vacation spot for you and your family.

Location was convenient to our family’s
rental. We did not spend much time in the
apartment since our kids were in a larger property where we shared meals and movies.
Other than living out of our suitcases ( no storage for personal items ), we were
good with the small setup.
It was difficult to enter the rental at night
without adequate porch lighting. We used our phone lights!
Enjoyed the deer, and the white herons
coming in to roost in the trees at the recreation center!
nice place,safe, saw deer on golf course,even the white one. Miniature golf course was nice, right across the road...and free
This place was perfect for my husband and me. He played golf while I rode my bike and enjoyed the beach. This place was in an ideal location for our adventure.
Thank you so much for your stay. I am glad you enjoyed the beauty of Edisto and were comfortable in the getaway
This property accommodated my husband, my daughter, and myself perfectly. Owner let me know that there was an issue when I arrived and let me know it was getting fixed the following morning.
We were right on the golf course, not that we golf but my 2 year old daughter had a blast finding stray golf balls.
Everything we needed was within 1-2miles of the property. Chose a great time to go as well, the beach was pretty much empty so my daughter was able to explore.
Since in the online description it said that pets were considered, I can't really complain but there was dog hair on the couch and in the floor, as well as the bed linens from previous tenants. So I had to do some extra cleaning, but I literally had no problem with it.
Overall would recommend, as well as go back for a future visit.
Pros and Cons
Without a doubt this is the best stocked condo we have ever stayed in. The owners are very generous. It was also clean. The only drawback is the bed isn't very comfortable and there is not much storage for your clothing. We lived out of our suitcase, but that wasn't a big issue. It is starting to show normal beach aging. Be aware that the resort amenities are an additional charge.
Only a five minute drive to one of many beach accesses, this quiet getaway is perfect for a couple and their fur babies to relax and forget about their cares back home. Although the TV reception is minimal, the view of the assorted wildlife from the deck provides more than enough entertainment for those seeking to escape the breaking news of the day. Our only complaint is that the days went by too fast.
