About Us...........


Edisto Beach Vacation Rentals, LLC was established in 2014 as a rental management company dealing with vacation rentals on and around Edisto Island and Edisto Beach South Carolina.

Richard and Mary Howse are the owners and both have been in real estate a long time (to put it lightly)!  Mary started her real estate career in 1982 and Richard in 1984 and both have extensive experience in all aspects of residential real estate from listing property to building homes.  They began managing their own vacation rentals in 1995 on Edisto Beach.

Mary was raised on Edisto Beach; her father was the first building inspector and her mother was the first female to be elected to Town Council.   Richard is a native of Atlanta, Ga. and Mary brought him to Edisto for the first time in 1993; he is now a local! Our sister in law, Beth Bost handles all of the accounting and our daughter in law, Brittany Reed is our Reservation Manager and Head of Concierge Services. 

Our intention is to keep this company a small, mostly family run business with emphasis on providing our home owners with the best return possible for their rentals while trying to make sure our guests have a pleasant time here on Edisto.  

We conduct our business via the internet and do not take phone call reservations over the phone or quote them over the phone in accordance with the Federal Uniform Electronic Act which was passed in the year 2000 mandating electronic transactions conducted in this manner as legal transaction.   This eliminates any "but I thought you said" problems as everything is right there for all parties to see.  And our clients love it because it is so easy!   If you need to contact us feel free to call 843-868-1458 (9-5), email edistobeachvacationrentals@gmail.com or you can chat with us directly on the home page of this website (9-5).    

For those of you that are just not comfortable with dealing solely over the internet, below is the proof of our company with the SC Secretary of State which should pacify any feelings of unease you might feel if  you are accustomed to dealing with rentals over the phone.
