Welcome to Edisto Endless Views! Relax on forty acres of private waterfront property for a one-of-a-kind experience. The house was recently renovated including three updated bathrooms, new HVAC system, paint inside and out, new blinds, refinished floors, new floor coverings and updated cabinets and doors. Located on a peninsula between two large creeks that connect to the intracoastal waterway, this property enjoys fresh breezes, gorgeous sunrises, and an endless view over miles of marsh grass.
Edisto Endless Views has a fascinating history, it was deeded as a Lord Proprietors Grant in 1710 to a plantation owner named Joseph Russell who received the land from the King of England. Since then there’s only been a handful of owners with the property passing between generations of the current owner’s family. Endless Views on Little Edisto is one of only two houses on the 40 acre property so you will feel very secluded. You will drive a mile down Russell Creek Road and then another mile on a private road to the end of the peninsula that comprises Edisto Endless Views. From the house, you can walk or ride the golf cart a short way along the marshfront to the property’s private deepwater dock and boat ramp. Take a kayak from the dock on a paddle down the creek or if you have a motor boat drive out to the ocean. Nature lovers will love this beautiful, isolated, and natural location because you will feel one with nature.
This property offers more than a typical beach vacation. Explore land and sea using the property's bikes and two fishing kayaks and one double kayak (life jackets provided). Take leisurely walks down country roads and forest paths. Immerse yourself in the unique nature and beauty of the Low Country's rich tidal creeks and marshes. Often, our guests plan to visit the many attractions on and around Edisto Island, but most guests are so relaxed that they rarely leave the property! After a walk or bike ride down the private dirt road (we provide bikes and a golf cart), or a serene kayak along the creeks, you'll be content to hang out on the porch, in shade or sun, with a cool glass of iced tea and a good book. Even though there are fun restaurants on the island, you may want to catch fresh seafood and vegetables to cook it yourselves. We especially like to eat the fresh crab that we catch off the dock and the fish we catch in the creeks.
There is something for everyone on Edisto Island. Including an excellent golf course on the Island, which will satisfy the most discriminating golfer (and a second golf course only 20 minutes from Edisto Island). Anglers can catch a variety of fish right off our dock, or take their boat or our two fishing kayaks (that come with the house) to enjoy some of the finest fishing on Edisto Island. We have found success with live bait such as shrimp and minnows -- you can use a minnow trap or shrimp net to catch live bait in season. Bird watching and the sounds of nature are captivating on SanRuss Point: birds flying over wetlands that stretch as far as the eye can see; dolphins swimming in the creeks; bald eagles, swallows, pelicans, wood storks (in spring), and woodpeckers, as well as a countless number of waterbirds. You can see lots of nature walking around the property and if you walk one mile up the private road - you will see flocks of birds near the gate in the salt water lakes. Enjoy catching crabs off our private dock (crabs can be caught all year round although some seasons are better than others) - you are welcome to use our crab traps or simply a string and weight. Guests are also welcome to use the property's golf cart for exploration of the property and travel the 100 yards along the marsh from the house to the boat dock. If you need something, just call us or the property's handyman (during the weekday mornings) and generally we can attend to your needs as he works on the 40 acre property.
By car, you can explore Edisto Island's historic churches and plantations, state parks, and unique activities such as the Edisto Island Serpentarium (open April-October), Bingo Nights at the Lions Club (summer only), strawberry and blueberry picking (May to early July). Edisto Beach State Park and Botany Bay Plantation beach are a short drive down Hwy. 174. Enjoy a day at the beach and then come home the beautiful endless views. While at the beach, we recommend the SeaCow Eatery for a casual meal. Visit Edisto's 4,360-acre Botany Bay Plantation. Kings Market, a few miles up Hwy. 174, that sells wonderful produce and boiled peanuts (in season). Buy fresh shrimp and fish at Flowers Seafood, or other local seafood stores. Via motorboat, you can take a 20-30 minute trip to remote beaches such as Deveaux Bank at the mouth of the Edisto River or eat lunch at Bohicket Marina on Seabrook Island. Take advantage of local attractions include kayak tours, fishing guides, and shrimp boat charters. Further afield, explore the ACE Basin, Cypress Gardens, Middleton Place and Magnolia Plantation, and of course, the beautiful town of Charleston.+ More
