Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Edisto Island, South Carolina
The Chaika is a lovely house on a secluded lot at the end of a street with no other house adjacent and no thru traffic. Beautiful live oak in front gives a nice view out the glassed-in porch. Only a short 5-minute walk to the beach on a rarely-used sandy drive. And less than a 5-minute drive to St. Helena sound for calmer waters and great beach combing. Chaika means 'seagull' in Russian - read the owner description for why we chose that name.

No reviews on this site yet, but if you look us up on Airbnb (same name) or Vacation Home Escapes you'll see several. We had 30 on VRBO averaging 5-star, but quit listing there due to price gouging of us and our guests.

4 bedrooms with beds for 10 people comfortably, plus a full-size futon on the enclosed glass porch. 2 full baths plus private shower under the house. Large open area in...

Interaction with guests
Our property is managed by a local Realtor who will make sure the house is well-cleaned prior to your arrival, they will get the keys to you, be available for advice and resources for things to do, and be on call should anything go amiss. We live in the Atlanta area, so unfortunately, we rarely have the opportunity to meet our guests in person.

About the neighbourhood
Edisto is a wonderful, relaxing family beach without the crowds, traffic, noise, (and costs!) of other SC beaches. Great for beach combing, early morning walks, lovely sunsets over the sound, and pleasant, homey restaurants. Only 45 minutes to all the sites and activities of Charleston, definitely a trip worth making on one of the days here. Our family loves the Gilligan's Seafood just off Rt 17 toward John's Island.

We like the quietness and family, noncommercial atmosphere of Edisto Beach. The house Chaika complements that by being very comfortable, relatively secluded yet convenient to the beach, laid out perfectly for being together to enjoy a meal, a game of cards, a movie, or evening conversation.
Getting around
Edisto is a remote beach, which is part of it's attraction. You can rent bikes, golf carts, and kayaks at Edisto Bike Rental. It is a great place for biking - flat with bike paths. This small community does not have public transport, although I have seen ads for a private transport.

How to get there
Airport: Charleston International Airport: 70.0 km
You will be on SC Rt 17, then turn onto 174, following signs to Edisto Beach. 174 goes for about 25 miles, eventually going all the way to the beachfront, where it curves sharp to the right and becomes Palmetto Blvd. The blocks are numbered - we are at the 2600 block - Loring St. The property manager, Edisto Realty, is also on Palmetto Bldv, several blocks before our place.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 0.2 km.
