Warm Southern hospitality welcomes you to this Low Country luxury 3-story home 4 miles from the beach with two large bedrooms available. It's a quiet and serene setting where you can hang out on the hanging beds in the lanai in the contemplation garden, or rock on the porch, or enjoy the view from the decks. Explore the Low Country and Charleston, a scenic drive away, or enjoy our quiet Edisto Island charm, unspoiled and pristine.
We offer two large bedrooms. This listing is for the bedroom with king-sized bed. The second bedroom is a separate listing called "Paradise on Edisto Island - Queen" with a queen-sized bed. Each bedroom has its own private half-bath adjoining, walk in closets, ceiling fans, comfortable chairs, good lighting. All with new, high-end mattresses and box springs. The bedrooms' private half-baths share a connecting tub and shower room with skylight. Each bedroom rents separately, or you may also book 'Paradise on Edisto Island- Queen' if you need both rooms.
Plan to use the large outdoor shower in the contemplation garden....it's a serene way to start the day listening to the birdsong while having your shower! There is also a jacuzzi deep tub on the first floor hall bath which you are welcome to use. Lots of options here!
You'll find luxury linens, down pillows, WiFi, cable TV, an extensive library, and fine art and antiques throughout the home.
Each bedroom has its own small refrigerator with beverages and snacks, a 32" flat screen TV and DVD player, and an iPod/iPhone alarm radio. Fluffy terry robes are here as well as a hair dryer. Spare toilette articles are stocked in case you might have forgotten to pack something you need. Your own hotel toiletries are fully stocked for you as well, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion.
Edisto is what the Low Country used to be: pristine, wild and unsullied. A great place for exploring, biking, kayaking, canoeing, walking, bird and wildlife watching, with incredible natural resources. We have an extensive plantation history, and an excellent local museum and historic tours. While here, enjoy diverse dining experiences, our beautiful beaches, fun shopping adventures, lively bars, golfing, dolphin tours, crabbing, shrimping, creek or deep sea fishing, or meander, exploring the local waterways and roads just like a native! Restore yourself here, it's a great place for finding peace.
Breakfasts are my specialty! I serve at 8 a.m. (unless you need a different time), starting with coffee, teas, juices, toast or pastries, fruit and yogurt, and then the main course, which might be grits, eggs, and bacon, oven baked apple pancake, baked coconut oatmeal with blueberries, vegetable and cheese quiche, homemade granola, or whatever special something the season might feature. Eggs are free range, local, from happy birds, and I try to keep everything organic, fresh, and local whenever possible. It might be served in the dining hall, the front porch, the deck, or you might want to have it in the garden or lanai.
I'm a licensed massage therapist with my private practice here on the ground level of the home, off the contemplation garden. I invite you to complete your visit's relaxation and book a bodywork treatment or a soothing massage in advance (book online at paradisefoundmassage).
You can rent bikes or kayaks in many locations on Edisto.
What do my guests usually say about their visit here? That it is tranquil, quiet, restorative, beautiful, peaceful, a truly pampering experience, and luxurious...and they usually extend their stay, or immediately book a return visit! Please enjoy the many different indoor and outdoor spaces here, but please note and respect the exceptions -- private innkeeper spaces -- the massage studio, kitchen, my office, sitting room and bedroom.
Since my home is filled with antiques and art, children who are well-behaved and carefully supervised by their parents are welcome. This home is not appropriate for infants or toddlers. Room occupancy is limited to two.
Please note this is a non-smoking property.
We can still close our eyes and be back to the kindness and feeling at home in Laura's beautiful home.
The whole experience was about being cared for by being surrounded by beautiful art, comfy living room, sounds of birds on the porch and a fantastic bedroom with the best fluffy towels and added extras.
Breakfasts were fantastics..every morning a different healthy gourmet breakfast served elegantly..Leisure time to chat over breakfast without feeling rushed.
Most important, Laura is an amazing women with abundance of kindness ...She also offers massage..She has magical skills.
We look forward to returning because of Laura and her amazing home that she shares with her guests. A peaceful spot.
Same here, Maital! Thinking of you and Pedro and Benjamin and animals and hoping it's been a good week, and that your Tuesday meeting went well. Eager to hear more details when that's possible. Still pondering many of the things we talked about and shared. It was a lovely visit start to finish, so happy to meet you!
My sister and I had a wonderful stay at Laura's beautiful home. Comfortable bed, copious breakfast, tranquil environs. Come ready to simply relax and rejuvenate because there is not much to "do" on the island...and you'll love it for that. Laura has lots of information to provide you on how to make the most of your stay; she is very sweet and clearly loves being a hostess because she truly excels at it.
A word to the wise: put on bug spray!
Off-season is a quieter pace here on Edisto, an even more perfect time to appreciate the rare qualities of its amazing vivid and varied history and it's astonishingly pristine ecological health and diversity. It's a place to savor, enjoy, explore, and appreciate. A great place for biking, kayaking, canoeing, walking, bird and wildlife watching, with incredible natural resources.
Laura is the best host that a traveler could ever wish for! She is warm, intelligent, respectful, and kind. Laura made every aspect of our visit so very special. She shared much information about the area, which allowed us to quickly orient ourselves to this beautiful island. Her breakfasts were far beyond the normal B & B fare. Laura attended to our dietary preferences with great care. A delicious, bountiful, and healthy high quality meal was served on every morning. The quality and spaciousness of the room and home setting was beyond that of a 5 star hotel (the walk-in bedroom closet was a surprise), yet much warmer and artistic than a sterile hotel! My wife and I slept deeply each night in a comfortable bed in a very quiet room that afforded us much privacy. During our stay here, we fell in love with Edisto Island, a place that provides much relaxation in the form of quiet walks on the beach (just 8 to 10 minutes from Laura’s place), a sunset dolphin watching cruise, and exploring all things related to the expansive ocean and waterways that make Edisto an island paradise. We look forward to our return. Thank you, Laura, for making our first visit to Edisto Island so welcoming and memorable!
Thank you Larry and Linda, I'm speechless and humbled with your beautiful feedback and review. I am SO pleased to know that you enjoyed yourselves so fully and were able to discover the peaceful restorative place that Edisto is, and which I try to echo in tranquility here at Paradise on Edisto. I know you do a lot of wonderful travel, domestic and exotic, but hope you will be able to find your way back to Edisto again, where you'll be enthusiastically welcomed!
Laura made us feel quite comfortable.
She provided us with all that we needed to enjoy our stay.
I loved her outdoor relaxation areas and the delicious breakfasts.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
