We are native Carolinians, having lived in both North and South Carolina most of our lives. We have owned property in the Charleston area since 1989 and couldn't wait until retirement, so we moved here full-time in 2002. We began restoring and renovating houses in Anderson, SC back when Chip and Joanna Gaines were still in diapers. When we first saw Toogoodoo Bluff back in 2005, my wife, Fredda, fell back onto a bed in the log cabin and like a 10-year-old girl, started kicking and screaming, "I love it, I love it, I love it!" So, we bought Toogoodoo Bluff. The log cabin and cottage had already been renovated but the farmhouse was just a shell. Our goal in renovating the 1700's farmhouse was to make it new and comfortable but to also maintain the historic character. I would like to think we succeeded. A decision was made to share the property with others and so we did. Since that time we have met the most wonderful people from all over the world. We had a movie shot at the property a few years back and later had a live album recorded at the property. We think Toogoodoo Bluff possesses some type of magical powers. It is like going to Grandma's house on Thanksgiving. Keith
Keith purchased this Farmhouse in 2005
Why Keith chose Hollywood
Toogoodoo Bluff is so unique and special. It offers an authenic Lowcountry experience and not just another beach week. The structures are all very historic and meticuously renovated. The high bluff overlooking the river and marshes are therapeutic. Toogoodoo Bluff is not a place, it is an experience.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
As previously stated, Toogoodoo Bluff is not just another week at the beach even though we are only a short drive to Edisto Beach. It allows for groups to be together without having to be together in a single structure.

While the view was amazing and the owner cordial and responsive , it could not make up for the overall poor condition of the property. There were windows that would not open properly, incredibly dirty windows, seriously substandard plumbing- no hot water in sink in small cottage, no adequate flow in shower in small cottage due to huge plumbing leak, serious plumbing leak in cabin shower, very low flow showers in the main house, water that tasted and smelled so strongly of iron that you did not want to even rinse your mouth out after brushing your teeth. The small cottage smelled very moldy. Two of the main locks for the houses did not work and the lock box was inoperable. We had problems with a number of the electrical outlets. The “sleeper sofa” in the cabin which we had counted on had no sheets and was tied together with a rope and was nasty. Overall the property was dirty and poorly maintained.
Great place to stay with gorgeous views! Fun time was had by all!
Great place and Keith was great to work with. Enjoyed learning about the history of the house and surrounding cabins!
Great rental for our large group. Plenty of room and activities to keep all happy. Will definitely visit Toogoodoo Bluff again.
Perfect for three families to gather.
The property is perfect for a family vacation near beaches and quick access to the river. Every day we saw dolphins. One day we saw a man a ray too. Too many birds to name
Wonderful property for a large family gathering!
Wonderful, private, property comfortably kept 3 generations of our family happy! Access to the inter coastal waterway is a huge bonus - we saw dolphins, crabs, shrimp, sting rays, oyster beds and fish all from the dock. The kitchen was well stocked with all manner of cooking tools. The large porches held many rocking chairs and outdoor covered eating areas. The property is grand - but not too grand that we worried about having messy kids around. It was also a very easy drive to so many attractions - Edisto beach and state park was wonderful! Keith was great with communication.
Amazing time with school friends!
This property couldn't have been more perfect! Keith did an amazing job keeping me informed and making sure everything went smoothly. All the rooms were great and unique unlike other homes. Def recommend this and I also will be renting it again in the future! Every single person enjoyed it!
