What do Beachfront, Second Row, Beach Walk and Island Home mean?
In a beachfront home there is not another house between you and the beach. In
a second row home, there is a road and a home between you and the beach. A
beachwalk home is anything that is further from the beach than second row, all
the way back to the marsh on the other side of the town of Edisto Beach. An
Island home is a home that is not located within the town of Edisto Beach, but
is within an easy drive of Edisto Beach and public boat landings.

These are all gated, private communities on the island. Jeremy Cay is the

In some areas of the Island there are. In The Hammocks and Jeremy Cay, each
home is allowed a maximum of four (4) vehicles. In Bay Creek Villas, rental
homes are allowed two (2) cars. There may be instances
