Oceanfront Home! 


           

                                                                                                                       
                       

                                                                 Enjoy the wonderful large beach at Mary's Dream!



Four bedroom, two bath, lovely oceanfront home with all up-to-date amenities yet retaining the classic charm of days
 gone by!
                   

Relax and enjoy the ocean just steps from the spacious sundecks wrapping around the oceanfront of this home.

Cook your own seafood from the local docks with our fully-equipped kitchen or dine out at one of our local restaurants. Watch the pelicans from the great room, enjoy your coffee from the master suite, or step outside the master suite door onto
the deck and enjoy the morning. Stroll along the beach in the evening or relax in one of the rocking chairs and enjoy the quiet serenity of Edisto.

Oceanfront views from all rooms and your Master suite offers private access to beach for those wonderful private
strolls under the stars.  This is the beach home of your childhood and rare to find anymore!

           

You are going to love our Mary's Dream; a wonderful beach cottage that everyone falls in love with once they meet her.  Patti LuPone, the Tony Award winning actress, stayed in her several times and ended up buying her own home on Edisto
because she loved it so much.  In a magazine interview when asked about Edisto she talked about Mary's Dream saying "Mary's Dream is an eclectic beach cottage reminiscent of yesterday.  A place you can go barefoot in and feel like a kid
again!

Mary, 

It's 6:48 am and I am sitting with my first cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the ocean. The dogs are chasing a tennis ball that previous Mary's Dream guest's thoughtfully left behind. Mind you they have no interest in a tennis ball at home-it must be the sea air and the thrill of playing with a found object ~ the joy! We arrived to a beautiful day in Edisto and opened the door to the beach house at 4:15. Mary's Dram is lovelier than I remembered! It seems you've been busy - the beautiful hardwood floors appear to have been refreshed, the deck was rejuvenated with a white wash and some new amenities! Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful! As we settle in I wanted to thank you again for sharing Mary's Dream. I am so appreciative that we have the opportunity to enjoy time on the ocean with our dog's at Mary's Dream. 

It seems the sun is up and a second cup of coffee is needed. 


                       

Thank you.

Wonderful Week

Guest: Margaret K.

Date of Stay: 12/30/12 Review Submitted: 01/07/13

Our week at Mary's Dream was wonderful! Mary's Dream has always been my "dream". To go back in time, a time when my family vacationed on a very quiet family beach. To stay in an oceanfront beach cottage. What wonderful memories!  Mary's Dream made them real again. Thank you!!

Mary has thought of everything to make your vacation, not only nostalgic, but very comfortable. The cottage was very clean and provided modern day amenities. The wifi was excellent, esp. since our cell phone reception was minimal. The cable TV provided an excellent selection for viewing. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well.

We loved the wrap around porch with gates. Our two poodles loved laying on the deck and we didn't have to worry about them. We had fairly nice weather for January and enjoyed sitting on the porch with our morning coffee. Nothing like the sun, sea and coffee to start your day.

Thank you Mary and Richard for allowing us to stay in your cottage. We will be back and soon!

WONDERFUL vacation house

Guest: Stephanie E.

Date of Stay: 10/14/12 Review Submitted: 10/25/12

We had never been to Edisto and I have to say that both of us found this house and the area to be our favorite of all our vacations.  We try to go someplace different each spring and fall.  We hadn't been to South Carolina and our focus was finding a place that we could relax and also be close to Charleston, Beaufort & Savannah for day trips.  We brought our 23 year old and 10 year old dogs with us (neither have ever been on a beach) and they loved it as much as we did.  The house is wonderful, full of fun and charm.  The deck is amazing.  Typically on a vacation we like to sleep in, but we found ourselves waking up early in the morning to grab a cup of coffee and witness the most amazing sunrises we have ever seen.  It was wonderful to fall asleep to and wake up to the sound of the ocean.  Quite frankly, we have never been so sad to leave a vacation home and we have stayed in some top notch houses in the Adirondacks, North Carolina, New Hampshire, etc.  We are usually looking forward to going home to our own bed by the end of a week's trip...but the bed (in the master bdrm) was so comfy.  Sitting on the deck and watching tons of butterflies go by all day long was magical.  We hope to come back again soon.  Thank you for sharing this fabulous home.

Hello!
We had a great time again;the weather was lovely all week too so you gotta love that!  The "Dream" looks great; we love the see thru deck and the new Lcd TV in the bedroom.  Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home again this year. We would like to come back next September; please let us know which week is open.

A perfect beach house and we WILL be back!

We really can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us.  It's obvious your house is a home; it's not just a beach house.  The love you feel for it shows in every room and we have fallen in love also and can't wait to go back.

The clear railings on the deck are such a nice touch!  After our shower in the late afternoon we would sit out and have a drink and it was just like being on the beach but no sand!

We have spent more money (perhaps I shouldn't say this to you) but never had a better time; we will certainly be back and hope you continue sharing her for at least a few more years before you keep her to yourself; I know I would have a hard time ever sharing her if I owned her!

Thank you again!

Kelly

Hi Mary - we are back home after a great week spent in Mary's Dream!  Once again we had a wonderful time.  We were happy with the sunshine each day and as the week went by it got warmer and warmer.  We stopped in Charleston on the way to Edisto so on Thursday we spent the day in Savannah - it was great, I had never been there before.  We also have never checked out Botany Bay - it was beautiful.  My husband even went swimming everyday!  I'm sending a couple of pictures to show how much we enjoyed our time.  Hopefully we can come back again!
Blessings on your day

Just arrived last night and woke up to a beautiful day.  We have already walked the beach three times this morning.  We love the way your home is set up; it feels like "home" to us already.  Two weeks is not going to be enough; three weeks next year? We've definitely found our vacation home and will return as often as you allow us.

Thank you!

Thanks again for sharing her.

On Tuesday while enjoying my morning coffee on the deck a "local" stopped by and said that he walks the beach everyday and had noticed a lot of work on the house had occurred lately and mentioned that this house is the nicest on the whole beach.  I assured him that we thought so too and this was our second year visiting.

Thanks again for sharing her.

Thanks you both for letting us stay in your lovely beach house again this year ,we have only been home for three weeks and want to come back right now .(Just love the new HD TV And Wi-Fi you do so much to make it feel like home) The house has never looked better ! Thank the decorator for us! I found a lot of shells this year must have been the storms out at sea and high waves, and i have never seen so many Dolphins, they were up and down the beach like clock work every day. Well like I said cant wait to come back next year, thanks you both again. We Love Marys Dream<<>> ( The Garrisons In NC)

We were just in your "Dream" for the third year in a row; it is always better than I remember. My favorites: relaxing in the rocking chair on the covered deck while the "girls" are sunbathing, cooking the shrimp on the steamer outside and then throwing them on the table you have built into the deck; I swear they taste better that way), sleeping late (!!) and just enjoying having our friends join us at the beach for a long weekend at the end of our weekly vacation.  

Love the new flat screen although we didn't watch it much.  

Thanks!

Your "Dream" has become our "Dream"!

This is our 6 year on vacation in "Mary's Dream" and every year it gets harder to leave.  We always open up the windows and turn off the a/c and just let the ocean breeze come on through.  After the initial shock of no a/c the kids actually had a great time and it reminded me of when I was a kid at the beach!  They were all running around in bathing suits (day and night), building sandcastles and big moats and waking up the next day to see if it was all still there.  The adults were able to relax on that beautiful covered deck and observe and some of us actually participated.

Thank you again for such a great beach house; please don't ever tear it down and build one of those new homes there!  We'll be back next year; hopefully for two weeks if you still have it open!

Hi Mary and Richard!

I will write a check for the deposit and get it in the mail this week to secure our stay on the beach at Mary’s Dream in 2012.  Thank you, thank you for considering us “family” - you’ve made a wonderful home on the beach and we feel like family every time we visit.  After our first year stay I never bothered to even look at other accommodations it was a given that if we were staying in Edisto we were of course staying at Mary’s Dream – JUST like staying at a family cottage.

Thanks again.

All 10 of us; grandparents, parents and kids had a great time in your special beach house. We played on the beach all day and games & cards at night. Our Lab swam and chased his ball and couldn't get enough.  The way you have the deck with the gates at the top of both of the stairs was just perfect for her to be able to run and play without getting out.

We loved the outside shower on the deck with hot and cold water and actually my wife and I went out there and took showers at night under the stars.  

Don't change a thing; don't fancy it up.  Leave it the way it is!

Sunburned,relaxed, and just thrilled!

We just got home from our vacation to Edisto and staying in your wonderful home.  So relaxing there.  We walked the dogs all over the island, down at the south end, up to the pier, up around the state park, and to the oyster mound.  We enjoyed a great meal at the Waterfront and many trips to Flowers seafood to cook fish, peel and eat shrimp, and awesome crab dip. Thanks for the tip on filling up the water containers down in town.  We also enjoyed the library and made many trips to the Piggly Wiggly. Spent alot of time out on the deck and really had some nice sunshine yesterday.  Thanks again for sharing your nice beach house.  We loved Edisto Island and your home and will return!


Want to come back; a perfect vacation!

It's 6:48 am and I am sitting with my first cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the ocean.  The dogs are chasing a tennis ball that previous Mary's Dream guest's thoughtfully left behind. Mind you they have no interest in a tennis ball at home-it must be the sea air and the thrill of playing with a found object ~ the joy!

We arrived to a beautiful day in Edisto and opened the door to the beach house at 4:15.  Mary's Dram is lovelier than I remembered!  It seems you've been busy - the beautiful hardwood floors appear to have been refreshed, the deck was rejuvenated with a white wash and some new amenities!  Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!

As we settle in I wanted to thank you again for sharing Mary's Dream. I am so appreciative that we have the opportunity to enjoy time on the ocean with our dog's at Mary's Dream.

It seems the sun is up and a second cup of coffee is needed.

Hi Mary,

Just wanted to send a note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at Mary’s Dream. I certainly understand how you have attracted ‘regulars’ over the years! In fact, I’m quite sure that Toby and I will become them ourselves – it’s the perfect beach house and reminds me so much of my childhood growing up at Edisto. You’re part of the ‘old guard’!

We don’t have our pictures ready yet but when we do I’ll be sure to send them to you.

Thanks again for making our vacation and wedding/honeymoon wonderful!

We just got back home yesterday and wanted to go back to the Island already but we have to work.  We had a great time again this year.  Its hard to believe its been 12 years since we stayed at Mary's Dream for the first time on our honeymoon in 1999 and we have not missed a September full moon since then.  The minute we unpack when we get there we feel just like it's our home too; we love this place!
Thank you both so much for sharing it with Karen and myself over the years!  I will email you the dates we would like for next year in a few days. We wish you and your family Blessing ,Love and Joy for the upcoming holidays

We chose to stay in Edisto so we could visit our son who is stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort. We had everything we needed at Mary's Dream, from wi-fi for my college student to fishing for my son in the Marine Corps, beach combing and boogie boarding for the 10 year olds, not to mention the historical sites and the kayaking trip, we all found plenty to do and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  The house was clean and comfortable and exceeded our expectations. We loved the non-commercialized environment on Edisto Island.  The people were so friendly.  We can't wait to come back next year.  Thank you Richard and Mary for the best vacation we have ever taken!

So enjoyed our vacation in your home!

Good morning Richard and Mary...

We had such a wonderful and relaxing time at "Mary's Dream." I think I was able to read several books and still do a lot of exploring. There is so much history in Edisto, we spent some time walking through the grave yard at the Methodist church, that in itself was incredible. We discovered with your help several local restaurants, talk about delicious, wow.....I do believe we consumed tons of fresh shrimp, clams, crabs and oysters and also had the opportunity to watch the shrimpers trawl just off shore. We were sitting right on the deck and what a view. Speaking of views, I thought we had gorgeous sunrises and sunsets down here on Melbourne Beach, Edisto topped both and Mary's Dream tops any home we've every vacationed in.

Thank you again for allowing two aging beauties and their critters to share your Beach House.
