About Cummins

Growing up on the Gulf Coast and marrying my college sweetheart from NC where we reside this part of the Lowcountry has always sang to my soul and provided an idyllic retreat from the rest of the world. We come to escape the fast paced life and know you will too as you enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Cummins purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Cummins chose Daufuskie Island

Beautiful, peaceful and not over developed. An island unto its own. Without cars and fast food chains you decompress from the point you get on the boat headed to Daufuskie and achieve an ever deeper point of relaxation with each day on the Island. Our beach looks back to Hilton Head's Harbour Town to the North and across the sound to Tybee Island in Georgia as Daufuskie is the last barrier island in SC.

What makes this cottage unique

The tranquil boat ride from either Hilton Head or Savannah makes one forget the stress of our hustle and bustle world. You will see Dolphins, Pelicans, Ospreys and a myriad of other flora and fauna along the rivers that most Lowcountry tourists never get the opportunity to experience. Come, relax, and stay a few days or for a while; our retreat is yours.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Daufuskie Island. The beaches on the island are beautiful. The cottage was comfortable and clean and only a short walk to the ocean. You can tell the owners take good care of the cottage and we felt at home there. I especially enjoyed the back porch facing the golf course and marsh. The grounds at Melrose on the Beach are amazing. Lots of birds and even a few alligators that are great fun to watch from a distance :) The beach was never crowded and we even had it all to ourselves a few times which was a treat. The kids said it was there favorite beach trip ever. At low tide they explored the sand bar and found hermit crabs, star fish, and even a shrimp. The Beach Club restaurant serves an excellent dinner and while the pool was not open for swimming it was a nice one. We would definitely go back again!

Exactly as expected --- good value

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. This island is not as developed as some others that we have visited and that was part of it's charm. The house was clean and in great shape upon our arrival. Short walk to the one of the beaches and about one block to the Melrose Beach Club which provided a great pool and food service. Owner's were helpful to provide data in advance about a private boat service to get us on and off the island on our schedule, golf cart options (absolutely necessary), and information on the few restaurants that are available. It was a good place for our family to slow down and spend time together, read books, and reconnect.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Delightful area, perfect for our quality time family vacation which was much needed as we prepare to say goodbye to my husband for his next deployment. Our two boys (7 and 8) loved every minute in the pool, in the ocean, on the golf carts and seeing the wonderful sights of the Island. We got a personal tour of the farm, met fabulous people with hearts of gold and made many memories to cherish for a very long time. We are already planning our trip next year after my husband returns home!

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the two condos side by side 123 and 121 and both were very nice and very well appointed. We had great time on Daufuskie. It took a minute to get used to the slower pace of the island but once we did it was great! This would be a great vacation for anyone. Thanks
