Last week, my aunt FaceTimed me while golfing to tell me…. “I’m walking by your cottage! I thought I’d video you and show you!”
Today we officially closed on Firefly Cottage, our own little piece of paradise on Edisto Island. It’s the cutest, cozy yet spacious little cottage surrounded by giant live oak trees draped in Spanish moss with hole 5 (or is it 6??) of the Plantation Golf Course just beyond the back yard.
It’s a rental as well, and if you yearn for the slow, quiet island life without commercial shops and hotels, an island your kids can bike around safely… we’d love to host you there! https://www.vacasa.com/unit/85322. But don’t tell too many people about it. 🤣. We want it to stay forever quaint and quiet!
Right now it’s not super “pretty” inside, but I have plans to give it some vintage coastal cottage vibes over the next year or so (I’m trying to figure out how to accomplish all the projects I’d like to do there in just week long spurts but also without cutting into rental income 😝🤣).
I can’t wait to make so many more memories here- we’ve loved Edisto since we first visited my aunt and uncle here years ago (they started with a rental here and now retired on the island and we can both see the same big tree on the golf course from both our back porches). I always want to tell everyone about this special little beach town but also don’t want anyone to know about it hahah!
