About the property

4--Bedroom cottage w/ocean views; free golf & 2 carts! Complimentary ferry

Formerly the site of a working plantation in the 1800s, Melrose Plantation on this remote, unspoiled island offers secluded beaches, natural beauty, and rich history. Daufuskie Island is 2 1/2 x 5 miles and located between Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and Tybee Island, Georgia. Available year round. The Oceanfront Residence Club, located in the Melrose Plantation portion of the island, offers 2 to 6 bedroom villas (occasionally there are 2 cottages, but they book quickly!) - All units have an ocean view, and some units are first floor, while others are second floor. Rates are quoted as 4-bedroom units. Please note that pictures are an example of the rooms - the exact layout and decoration of the unit could vary depending on the number of bedrooms.

The Oceanfront Residence Club books their rentals in two formats: Thursday to Sunday for 3-day rentals OR Sunday to Sunday for week-long rentals. NO EXCEPTIONS. As such, guests may enjoy complimentary ferry transportation on those days, as the island may only be reached by boat.

( Note: Must be 25 years old to book the property, and all guests under that age must be accompanied by a 25 year-old guest staying in the unit.)

About Adelia Gram

Entrepreneur/vineyard owner/property manager from Winston-Salem, North Carolina; also lives in Austin, TX. Hobbies: A 501 (c) (3) dog rescue organization, GRR...(Gram Rescue Ranch).

Adelia Gram purchased this villa in 2005

Why Adelia Gram chose Daufuskie Island

My love affair with this property began 27 years ago, and I have never tired of its charm, seclusion, and ability to put one at peace. With that being said, one can leave the quietude of the property to seek livelier entertainment on the other side of the island (i.e. Bahamian bars and restaurants with live music available.)

What makes this villa unique

It is rare to find upscale, dog-friendly accommodations on such a remote island and beach resort. The two golf courses are designed by PGA Champions: Melrose designed by Jack Nicklaus and Bloody Point recently renovated by Davis Love.

Car: not necessary

The first barrier island at the southern most point of South Carolina. Population: 250. You won't find a bank, bridge, traffic jam, or noise pollution, but what you will find is a quiet getaway with tranquility. Transportation is by water and golf cart. One would have to go to The Bahamas to find a comparable atmosphere!
