Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best vacation ever at this spectacular beachfront home. Every detail is first-class, from location, to decor, to spaciousness. The property manager added tremendously to the quality of our stay with her hospitality and attentiveness.

Stellar and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house and the property manager were stellar. Daufuskie is a wonderful get away and the pace slows, families reconnect and this home was great! You wake up with a view that makes you think you are floating on the water. Deborah the rental agent made getting to and setting up what makes this island unique very easy.

The house offers everything you need except food and suntan lotion! More then you can expect. It is well laid out , clean and well maintained. The pictures do not mislead you at all. I stongly suggest getting a golf cart!

At high tide the beach by the house is small, but that only last for a few hours and you can walk down a path and hit the sand if you must. We fished off the sea wall and caught tons of fish more then we can eat, and gave them to a local gentleman.

The people that live on the island are great , alls you need to do is ask and they are refreshing , open and helpful.

We used the ferry service from Salty Fare on HHI Joel was great to work with and offered coverd boats, DI transportation , Stewart and Freddie were great...

Dont over pack... tee shirts and bathing suites are all that was needed and theie is two laundry rooms.

Daufuskie House

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful, pool was great, location fantastic. We had a wonderful time. Unfortunately several things in the house were not in working order which was a bit disappointing, but overall we had a fabulous time and would definitely return to the same house again.

Owner's Response: We appreciated the feedback regarding issues in the home. We were not aware of the problems and had relied on the couple who were helping manage the home on the Island for us to stay on top of things. We have addressed the issues raised and have made a change in the management of the home to help prevent this from recurring in the future.

Owner's Response: The repairs to our portion of the seawall were completed in July. The damage to the seawall north of us is in the process of being repaired. The work appears to be far enough away from us now that it should not impact our property.

Home away from home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were fortunate to visit Daufuskie Island AND reside at this fabulous home for a mini vacay. The home and its views are breath-taking! The owner is wonderful and the folks he has managing it are pleasant, helpful and accessible for questions/issues. I went there with 3 other adults and 3 toddlers and it was one of the most memorable/enjoyable vacations I've had in a long time. As the other reviewers have mentioned, the marine/wild life surrounding the home is overwhelming and the views from each balcony is relaxing, inviting and rejuvenating.

The house is totally functional and not too "stuffy" for toddlers. :) It provides a comfortable and "at home" feeling. I found a great personal shopper (Hopper Shopper) that handled our groceries which made the trip less complicated. The property is superbly maintained. We ate at Marshside Mamas (which I did not care for) but Daufuskie Crab was a great dining out experience. We explored the Island on golf carts (all coordinated through the owner) and learning about the history of the Island was a plus!

If you are planning to travel to Daufuskie, THIS house is the ONLY option that caters to your EVERY beach/wildlife/marine life/comfort/family entertainment vacation experience!

Car: not necessary

The property is located in the Melrose on the Beach Plantation directly on the Atlantic Ocean. Since Daufuskie is an island without a bridge it’s the perfect getaway for a totally relaxing beach vacation. Access to the Island is by ferry or on-demand boat service. Golf carts are the main form of transportation on Daufuskie as only maintenance vehicles are allowed within the resort. This lets you get away from the 'hustle and bustle ' of everyday life. The Island lacks the usual distractions of life 'as it is like at home'. In addition to the Resort's facilities there are plenty opportunities for long beach walks, island explorations, relaxing days on the beach, poolside lounging, reading and playing board games, dolphin watching, shelling and crabbing and a variety of other fishing and hunting opportunities.
