Welcome to San Russ Point on Edisto Island! As they say: location, location, location! Located on a peninsula between Sand Creek and Russell Creek, this property enjoys wonderful breezes not found inland. We have a deepwater dock, boat ramp and great fishing. The property is 40-acres and is only shared by our other house. You will love this beautiful, isolated and natural location.
Bird watchers will enjoy watching birds such as bald eagles, woodstorks, woodpeckers, as well as a countless number of water birds. Anglers can catch a variety of fish right off our dock or take their boats to some of the finest fishing on Edisto Island.... You will see dolphins swimming down Russell Creek and will enjoy using the sea kayak to paddle though small inlets that leads into the marsh. Adults and Kids both enjoy catching crabs of the dock - you are welcome to use our crab traps or use a string and weight.
We think our property is better than a typical beach vacation because of the beauty and unique nature and beauty of the Low Countryâ€™s rich tidal creeks and marshes, as well as easy access by car to Edisto Islandâ€™s historic landmarks, Botany Bay Plantation, State Parks and other local sites. Bring your boat to enjoy fishing, water sports, and remote beaches, utilizing our boat ramp and deep-water dock. The Atlantic Ocean and Bohicket Marina are a short 20-minute boat ride away. It is 10 miles to Edisto Beach down highway 174. There is a good farmers market that is only a short drive, as well as a very good seafood store to buy shrimp if you do not want to catch them yourself.
So bring your kid's bikes. We have four adult beach bikes and a kayak/canoe to explore land and sea. Enjoy leisurely walks down country roads and forest paths. Alternatively, simply relax in the sun or shade with a glass of iced tea. If you have a problem, you will love our gardener and handyman that works on the property and is always a quick phone call away.
San Russ Point gives you access to the best of the South Carolina Low Country. Local attractions include historic churches and plantations; Edisto Beach and State Park; seasonal treats such as the Edisto Island Serpentarium, Bingo at the Lionsâ€™ Club, strawberry and blueberry picking; the ACE Basin; Cypress Gardens; and of course, the beautiful town of Charleston.
If you walk a mile up the dirt road, you only see a few houses. As I write this, there are Wood Storks walking near the house and I can see birds flying over the wetlands that stretch as far as the eye can see. The house is located on a part of Edisto called Little Edisto Island, which is on the end of Russell Creek road, between Russell and Sand Creek.
All around our 40-acre property there are protected areas . We have been renting our guest house for four years and have had a number of repeat guests. . The house was renovated, most recently the kitchen, and has all hardwood floors in all rooms besides the bathrooms.
There are some fun restaurants on the island but for most meals, we prefer buy or catch fresh seafood and buying or picking vegetables to cook for ourselves. We especially like to eat the fresh crab that we catch off the dock and the fish we catch in the creeks. There is an excellent golf course on the Island, which will satisfy the most discriminating golfer.
Charleston is a wonderful city/town with a rich heritage and great shopping. There are some fantastic restaurants (just ask for names).
Early in the season there is strawberry picking close by and generally until early July there is blueberry picking. You will also want to visit a wonderful wildlife area called Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area. This area includes 4,360.5 acre of land! It is located adjacent to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Hiking in the state park is great fun and there is good fishing as well. Last summer we chartered a shrimp boat for the children and it was a great experience for all. However, you may just want to relax and paddle the sea kayak across Russell Creek and up the little inlets.
A few miles down the road, you will find two farmers stands where you can get great vegetables. A short drive from there you will find a seafood store where you can get local shrimp, crabs and fresh fish. There are also some decent restaurants such as the Old Post Office. We also like to go into Charleston and eat there at least once every other trip. It is a wonderful place and if you come, you will want to come back!Read more

This property was everything we had hoped for. We came with 3 little girls ages 5 to 8 and they had a blast.
The owners were extremely accommodating and friendly. Our girls all cried when we had to leave. The property is gorgeous and well maintained. We went crabbing off of the dock and fishing. Collected oysters and clams for meals and they even allowed us to use a couple fish tanks for the girls to watch the wild life we found for a little bit.
The house set up is great for families as the main living building is separated from the bed rooms by short walk ways... We could put the kids to bed and then have adult time playing games and chatting in the main living area.
The trampoline is in great condition and the girls loved it as well as the Zip line.
If you want to get away from crowds... want to feel safe and secure with your children... want to relax and enjoy beautiful views this is the place for you.
Though the beaches are plenty close we only spent 6 hours total there because there was so much to do and experience on the property.
I just want to again extend our sincerest gratitude to the owners of this place.

We had a great stay at this house. It is located at the end of a dirt road so there is lots of privacy and wildlife. The owners live down there too but this was not a problem. The dock was great, the water is amazing, the views are beautiful and extensive. There is a hottub on the deck and everything you need in the house. The house is set up with 3 pods connected by decks so the masterbedroom is its own little oasis. TV, internet, linens, cleanliness, it was all great. Edisto Beach is down the road about 20minutes and it is a lovely beach with lots of shells. Of course, if you bring your boat you can go to secluded beaches on your own. They say the fishing is really good too but we did not try this. Overall, it is a great spot to get away. If you like lots of arcades or restaurants this is not the place for you. But if you want idealic views and relaxation this is the place.
Amazing views and wildlife
