Overview

Daufuskie Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The one and only island of Daufuskie! Take the ferry from Hilton Head or Savannah and feel any stress in your life instantly go away with the soft breeze and the refreshing smell of the ocean.

Transportation will be waiting your arrival at the landing, and take you and your luggage to Melrose Plantation, where your peaceful oceanfront cottage awaits you.

Walk in to a place with a magnificent view of the Atlantic that you will find nowhere else on earth. Both doors have been upgraded to electronic code locks for your convenience so you never have to worry about a key while your there!

Each bedroom is the same size with two Queens beds, and full private baths. The bathrooms are large and spacious and include a fairly large tub for a soothing bath. In the open kitchen you are provided with all the necessary pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils, with plenty of room for your groceries.

The screened in porch looking out at the ocean is a relaxing place to spend the evening with a cocktail. The sun rises in the east and is a beautiful sight coming up early in the morning with some fresh coffee.

On the island of Daufuskie the most difficult decision is to walk the quiet, clean beach, read a book on the back porch listening to the ocean, touring the island on your golf cart and seeing the many wild animals, the seasonal Sea Turtle eggs or historic relics from the Civil War. Don't forget horseback riding, game of tennis, or a round of golf at the famous Jack Nicholas golf course might satisfy. Or you could shop at the Silver Dew Pottery or the Gullah and Island Museum or the Community Farm. Maybe even plan your week with fun filled activities from many of the charter fishing, jet skiing, para sailing, or dolphin tours offered in the area.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
Had to stay in this rental at the last minute due to another falling through. The owner was great and very accommodating. Transportation was promptly provided as soon as we got off the boat and was very reliable picking us up to go back. The house was as described on the webpage. Very spacious, clean and in great shape. Will definitely use again.

Cottage Needs TLC

  • 2 of 5
This cottage has potential to be wonderful but unfortunately it is not. Carpet in bedroom is old and stained & had large hole in it that is being covered by a very old rug. Heavy mold on HVAC vents, and generally cottage was not clean. As we walked through we noticed a belt from appearantly the last guest still haning in the closet. Sofa looks like they picked up form curb waiting to be picked up by the trash truck. We covered with towels we had brought to even let our dogs on it. The cottage has had the ceiling partially repainted. The painter got white ceiling paint on the khaki walls in several places. Owner said they started painting but had to stop. Owner has provided 2 flat screen TVs for the cottage, unfortunately he didn't bother to make sure they got reception. You can see 4 stations, sometimes. We have stayed on the island several times and this kitchen is far and away the worst stocked to cook in. This is important as on the island you basically have to cook for yourself as there are only 4 options to eat out, and they tend to be expensive. again everything in the kitchen was dirty and old, the blender actually still had the last creation in it, toaster old and dirty and not cleaned out. Again this cottage has awesome potential but this owner has decided he will take cutomers money and not worry about making the stay in his cottage as good as it could be. There are many options to stay on the island, we have stayed 6 times befor and would pick any of them over this cottage. The Island is Heaven on Earth to us, and we will continue to go and hope others will visit. However, I would not choose this cottage. I am sure the owner is a good guy but he is not putting the effort into this cottage to make it what it could be. As far as the island goes, if you have not been you should try it. Access to the island is by boat only. There is a public ferry but I strongly suggest using May River Excursions and take Captain Chris' water taxi. Also, while there the golf is wonderful and affordable. If you enjoy horses, contact Jody at the equestrian center for a relaxing horseback ride on the beach.

Overall was just ok. The place needs updates.

  • 3 of 5
This beach cottage needs some updates inside. A little worn out, left us a little disappointed. The TVs for example are tube TVs, and 2 of them were not watchable. One wouldnt turn on. Another was very snowy. Painting and general deep cleaning are also needed. The golf cart also had significant problems, wouldn't hold a charge.

The property manager was accommodating and worked with us to solve the golf cart issue.

It just needs some money to be reinvested in the place.

Other than the above, Melrose/Daufuskie is a beautiful place. We loved the restaurant on the property and we enjoyed the pool and beach. Good service in the restaurant and at the pool. We enjoyed Marshside Mamas as well as meals at Bloody point clubhouse.

I would stay here again, if the property was confirmed to be updated.

Owner's Response: Melissa, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the property. However I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the cottage as much. We actually just finished a renovation with all new flat screen tvs and much more. The golf cart had all new parts during your stay however even new parts break, but everything has been fixed. I will be uploading new photos of the place soon. Hopefully you will like the new upgrades!

Paradise in our own backyard!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much. We took our personal boat for a 67 mile journey to Daufauskie Island which in itself was a nice day! We enjoyed the beach one day, the Melrose Pool one day, went to Harbour Town for lunch another day and enjoyed boating. I believe the golf cart rides were the most fun. Marshside Mama's is a must! The food was wonderful and we enjoyed playing "cornhole". We will definitely be going back and soon!

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 4 of 5
I was nervous about spending five days on an island without a car, but it was great. Island is beautiful, relaxing, and all the people were very nice.
Walked every morning and saw alligators, deer and lots of wildlife. Beach was so relaxing. Restaurants were mixed, but nice locations looking out over the water.
You really need to bring everything you need with you from the mainland since there isn't a grocery store.
Cottage was fine -- great location, but a little worn and could have been cleaner. Also, owner could have been a little more helpful upfront with information.
Strongly recommend Daufuskie Island for someone looking for a relaxing week away from everything.
