New 1600 sf Home, 200 yards to the beach
Why Jim Harrold chose Daufuskie Island
This is the first time this home has been on the rental market.
What makes this House unique
Private home. Very tastefully decorated. You will be very comfortable.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This home was very nice and clean! There is a double bed upstairs, sofa beds downstairs. You need to be able to climb stairs! It is a block from the ocean and there is a tiny view of ocean through the trees. The golf course is closed and there is a small view through the trees. We enjoyed our 3 nights on Daufuskie. The beach in this area is wonderful!
The house was amazing, friends that seen pics on Facebook are asking about booking it
Nice Couple Getaway
Nearly perfect accommodation for a getaway for my wife and I. House was clean and well apportioned with essentials. The Island is beautiful, the beach is nearby and the location was very quiet (except for the birds and tree frogs). Rent a golf cart and explore the island and/or spend days at the beach. There is 1 regular bed in the house (full sized) and at least 1 pullout couch. The gas grill works well as do all of the appliances. The coffee maker was broken but it was replaced by the caretaker when notified. The bikes are single speed and old but they work fine, we took an evening ride and enjoyed using them.
I recommend this property, and would rent again if I get back to Daufuskie.
Thank you so much for your kind words concerning your stay at our Daufuskie Island Beach home. We enjoyed working with you and hope you will be able to make it back to the Island. We would love to have you as our guest anytime.
Sincerely, Jim and Paula
Relaxing and Charming
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was so charming and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We spent our quiet mornings and evenings on the back porch. We loved the sounds of the birds and the ocean! Easy access to the beach. Communication with the owner and property manager was so easy and they answered all our questions immediately. It was a perfect get-away for our 40th anniversary.
It’s unfortunate to leave negative feedback on what could have been a beautiful property, but I would be doing a major disservice for others coming after me if I were not honest.
The home hadn’t been thoroughly swept, vacuumed or mopped in who knows how many months. The rugs in the master bath (and in the entire home) were so filthy that after a shower I had someone else’s hair stuck to my feet not to mention dust bunnies.
I had to clean out the master bathtub prior to using it. There were dead bugs on the floors. Also a live cockroach got into one of my suitcases. Unfortunately, I never found him and hope I didn’t bring it home.
The pillows were stained and very old. They probably have never been washed. You are most certainly sleeping on someone else’s bodily fluids. The linens were also dusty. Dust was on every surface of the home. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, have asthma, or expect a clean property this home is not for you. The home doesn’t have any window coverings or blinds. If you like privacy or blinds give you a sense of safety this home is not for you .
This home does NOT have an ocean view.
I would give the property 1 star if not for the island. The island is lovely but I may not be back because maybe all properties on island are like this? I don’t know.
In response to the above guest...
This guest is certainly entitled to her opinion of our beach house, however, I have my opinion and it is that her remarks are all very suspicious. For example: her remarks about the cleaning is just not correct. We have 2 house cleaning people and they do a good job before and after each guest. Also, we have a very competent property manager and she inspects the property before every guest checks in. And, this was done with this guest. These cleaning issues would have been corrected if they were there. There are not any blinds or coverings on the windows, and this is shown in our pictures. However, there are none needed. We don't have any neighbors and we are on pillons, 12' above the ground. This guest also, suggested that we do not have an ocean view. We have an ocean view on each level of our beach home and it's only 200 yards from the beach. Finally, this guest mentioned dead bugs and this does happen after bug spray is done at various times from the time of the sprayiing. Unfortunately the house keeper cannot come in every day.
My main concern is why didn't this guest call or email me or our property manager? She had both of our phone numbers and the property manager called her several times. Why didn't this guest voice her concerns? We could have corrected any concerns and helped to make her stay more comfortable. I am very sorry that this guest has a negative opinion, however, in my opinion it is very suspicious. Please look at all of our other reviews. Thank you, Jim and Paula
They Did it Again
Daufuskie is the ultimate location for relaxation without leaving the country. The island and the people are great. My fiance and I made a return trip, one year after getting engaged on the island and couldn't wait to enjoy this beautiful home again. We took the ferry from Hilton Head and the ferry workers assisted us in loading our items. Unfortunately once we reached Daufuskie we realized they had left one of our coolers on the dock in Hilton Head. They immediately apologized and guaranteed they would bring it back later that afternoon and took our contact information so that they could get in touch with us. We proceeded to the vacation house to check-in, we were early and knew there were renters checking out the same day. We had organized with the property manager, Karla (who was great and came to check on us after check-in) to drop off our belongings, refrigerate our perishables and come back at check-in time after the cleaning was done. To our surprise, when we arrived the cleaning was already complete and we were able to settle in and unpack our items for our week long stay. No sooner than we unloaded our items, a van from Bloody Point Golf Resort pulled up and on behalf of the Daufuskie Island Ferry they provided us with a free golf cart rental for the entire week of our vacation due to them forgetting the cooler (they also kept their word and returned the cooler to us!). We were shocked and so grateful. After spending time on the island, we have come to realize that this is just how hospitable everyone is. You will absolutely love this home, and everyone you encounter on the island. This home is very close to the beach and you will not find any faults. The accommodations are great and they have any kitchen and toiletry items that you may forget. Don't hesitate, visit Daufuskie and stay at this home.
Thank you so much, Ryan and Joya, for your fun story and kind words. We loved it that you came back to stay at our beach home for your engagement anniversary. Please keep us posted as to the date of your wedding.
Very truly yours, Jim and Paula
