If there's another place that rents DVDs on Edisto Beach, I don't know where it is. But the Island Video & Ice Cream delivers more than just your fairly recent top rentals. Your frustration at the dismal selection of titles will be melted away, so long as you try a scoop or two of their top-quality, hand-dipped ice cream.
While they don't boast 31 flavors, they do have a good selection of rich, creamy varieties that go beyond chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. The last time I checked, their ice cream was sourced by Wholly Cow, which is a true premium brand.
The biggest problem I've found with the place is figuring out when they are open for business. In the off-season, it's a real hit-or-miss proposition. The good news is that if you play your cards right, you can rent a bunch of DVDs on Thursday -- and keep them through the weekend.
There's enough seating for you to enjoy your ice cream right there. Or, you can go outside the beach's only "strip mall" and find a bench.
While you are there, be sure to check out the nearby souvenir/clothing stores. And just down the way, you'll find a fairly new addition to the center: a gourmet candy shoppe.
Finally, for those who are still trapped in the VHS vortex, you'll find plenty of titles at Island Video.
