There’s covered parking in the front for one car, decks on the lower level, and a deck on the main upper level bedroom.
Just the drive out to the island will get you every time – you travel along a narrow two-lane road with Spanish moss draped from the old live oaks. It evokes thoughts of Gone With The Wind for me.
The resort itself is pretty remote, although there's a Piggly Wiggly (the Southern version of a grocery store) right at the main entrance to the island. The prices are a little higher than the norm, but it is a long trip for the delivery guys. There are several decent restaurants on the island, but if you want to really eat well, head to Charleston.

Full kitchen with filtered water that's been remodeled in past few years. There's a washer and dryer in the unit. This timeshare spoiled me for what to look for in an exchange.Resort Experience:Cotton and indigo plantations. Jungle like enough to film a movie here. A fossil bed off the coast insures fine beachcombing. Edisto State Beach and wildlife areas prevent development.
Unlike Hilton Head to the south or Myrtle Beach to the north, this is a place to enjoy the quiet ocean. Learn how to crab, beachcomb in the clean surf, and watch the fishing contests and dolphins in the bay. Incredible live oak trees line the road that leads you to the beach. The whole family will enjoy biking around the island, or catching a fish on your first try. The lagoon in the back of the condo has a resident alligator.
There are only two grocery stores on the island. Prices are higher so we always brought groceries from home. That started Edisto as being our cooking trip away from home, everyone bringing a special recipe to cook on their special night. We crab all week, and the last night all the weeks' cooked catch turned into a seafood sauce.
Funny memory: Edisto has great golf courses - I don't golf, but I've been told so. We saw a guy in the lagoon wading for golf balls - as two alligators looked on! Yes, they were real!
