Melrose on the Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Gracious living amid palms, plants and animals on the low country's unspoiled beach. Front and back porches to take advantage of peaceful ocean or marsh views or stretch out in the hammock overlooking the marsh and enjoy watching the up-close action on the eighth hole green of Melrose Golf Course.

Inside two generous sized bedrooms each with private full bath, 2 queen beds in each room, DirecTV, Highspeed Internet access and more add to the resort feel. Open living and dining areas great for spreading out and enjoying the relaxed comforts of home.

Wonderful pools overlooking the ocean toward Hilton Head down from the cottage. Our guests have access to this facility when it is open. It is open on a seasonal basis determined by the Melrose Resort Group.

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.
