Tranquility lives up to its name. Peace and quiet are the two most frequent words guests use in describing their visit. Staying in this wooded island neighborhood, you will truly come to understand why locals often refer to time here as "Edislow." Less than 4 miles from the beach and 1 mile from the SC State Park Boat Landing, hiking/bike trails, and Interpretive Center, this is the place to unplug from the world and reconnect with family and friends while enjoying island life.
Down a quaint dirt road, surrounded by big oaks, palmettos, and pine trees, this island-cottage style home on stilts lives much larger than its 1200 sq ft. With hardwood flooring and open floor plan, Tranquility is perfectly suited for family vacations, intimate getaways and small group retreats. Enjoy morning coffee and meals on the screened porch or lounge in the hammock with your favorite book. You will be treated to the sights and sounds of Lowcountry wildlife on the covered, wrap-around porch.
After a relaxing day on the beach, enjoy the heated outdoor shower, or play a game of ping-pong downstairs. Then head up to prepare local seafood in the well-equipped kitchen. It has everything you will need!
Interaction with guests
If you need us, we can usually be there in an hour or two, but generally we plan to let you enjoy Tranquility with your family and friends.
Leah proudly went a little label-maker crazy, so everything is well marked (to put it mildly). You wont have any trouble finding things in this house.
Other things to note
Tranquility is meant to be a retreat from busy life. Off the beaten path, it uses well water with a reverse osmosis system, and guests must take trash to the local dump. Tranquility does not have internet connection, and cell service can be spotty. Though we do have a limited collection of DVDs, Tranquility does not have cable TV and the digital TV antenna is absent or not functional most of the time.
We want you to enjoy your vacation, and we understand that people find joy and relaxation in different ways. If unplugging makes you uncomfortable, please look at the many other options available on Edisto. It is a wonderful island and beach, and other properties are sure to have what you are looking for.
Upon checkout, guests are responsible for removal of all trash. Guests will take trash to the dump or leave it downstairs in the trash can provided. If left downstairs, guest will make sure all trash fits inside the one can with the lid closed completely and secured well.
We are Sandlappers, which is an old, local term for natives of the SC Lowcountry. We like outdoor activities, like hiking, fishing, and swimming in the ocean. Our pass times include reading, listening to music and podcasts of all types, and visiting art museums and historic sites. Sharing our home has not been easy, but we view it as an opportunity to learn more about ourselves, each other, and other people. We think Tranquility is a special place, and we hope you enjoy being our guests here!
