Edisto Island 2010

Filed under: Vacation — kkempf @ 6:25 am

We’re heading back to Edisto this summer, we picked a place on the Wyndham this year.  Obviously we’re really happy with Edisto; it hits the quiet spot between isolated nature preserve and over-populated (Hilton Head!)

We’ve stayed at the Wyndham before (perfect little cabin!), on a long weekend, and this year it fits our needs perfectly.

Last summer, the extended family stayed across from the beach at this rental.

One drawback with the rental this summer is that it’s not oceanfront, but our small kids prefer the pool (there’s several within a short walk), plus there’s a playground, miniature golf, and a shuttle to the beach.
