The island was first inhabited by the Edisto tribe of Native Americans in the 1500s before being discovered and occupied by Spaniards in the 1600s. During King Charles II’s reign, the English followed suit.

This coastal barrier island was nearly destroyed in the 18th century by pirates, drought, boll weevils, the plague, fires, and hurricanes, all of which took a devastating toll on Native Americans and European immigrants. These natural calamities have long since passed, allowing Edisto Island beach rentals to thrive in the years afterwards.


The need for rice, indigo, and Sea Island cotton brought prosperity back to the region in the 1800s. However, many of the plantations and ancient mansions were destroyed during the Civil War. Some plantations have survived and are designated on the National Register of Historic Places, and they remain popular tourist destinations for visitors who book Edisto Beach rentals for their trip to South Carolina.

Today, the island is home to roughly 3,400 people, the majority of whom work in the tourism business. The same tourists who book Edisto Island rentals are welcomed by the locals, who work together to keep the local economy humming. There are now Edisto Island beach rentals, fantastic outdoor recreational possibilities, local seafood restaurants, a marina, a golf course, and Edisto Island beach rentals accessible.
