Beware of dealing with this owner. She advertised access to near by pool, contacted us within 2 weeks of our trip and said that pool could not be accessed. When we asked about the pool access- she cancelled our reservation with out discussing with us. We are now scrambling to find another vacation property.
We attended a wedding on Daufuskie during October. While weddings are all consuming, we did enjoy our time in this wonderful property in the Melrose area of Daufuskie. The weather was perfect and all of our time was enjoyed. I will look forward to going again and this time relaxing in this exceptional property. Very nice unit with great views. Everyone associated with this property were great to work with.
Great location on the Island. A block off the beach but still had a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoyed countless hours on the screened porch. Only advice to renters is secure your golf cart early, especially if it is a holiday weekend. We ate at all 4 restaurants. Busy weekend you need to make reservations, especially at Marshside Mama's. Short walk to beach and Melrose Beach Club and pool.
Property Manager was beyond helpful. She answered the phone each time I called with questions and went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing weekend on daufuskie. Thank you!!! We would recommend you anytime
We could not have been happier. The whole family (wife and 3 teens) want to make this our yearly vaca spot!
The house: Beautiful, clean and well appointed villa. Beach front is a few steps away. Dolphins visited the beach area daily around 4pm, which was very cool to see. Large open feel, and a huge screened porch with perfect water view. The Aerie is easily the best value possible when choosing a vacation spot. You will be more than pleased with this choice!
The island: Great place to explore! With almost no vehicles on the island outside of golf carts, it is a runners paradise. Miles of trails with exceptional views. If you enjoy photography, the scenery alone is worth the trip. Nature wise, you'll see tons of egrets, storks, cranes, a possible eagle here and there, and gators in the fresh water ponds. When it came to dining, plan on reservations or bring your own food to cook.
The condo is very spacious and well appointed. Everything you need to feel at home. Just like the pictures it is beautifully decorated and clean. The huge ocean view screened porch was my favorite. We played board games out there every evening.
The elevator in the building was broken while we were there so the initial haul of the luggage and supplies up the stairs was a chore but after that the exercise was appreciated.
We used May River Excursions to water taxi us over from Bluffton to the public dock at Daufuskie. Chris was so nice and accommodating. I think this is the best way to get there. We had a ton of bags and groceries and we were able to choose our departing/pick up times. Freddie from Daufuskie Transit was waiting for us at the dock and loaded our stuff in his van to take us to the condo. Freddie seems to be the BMOC on Daufuskie. He knows everything and everyone. He gave us a mini tour on the way to the condo. Great guy. He then dropped me off at Bloody Point Golf Course to pick up the golf cart rental for the week. Nice place but I might do more research on carts. Everyone was passing us in our cart. I think we had the slowest one on the island. Not a big deal, we weren't in a hurry but a little embarrassing. We had a gas four seater. We traded the second day for a Yamaha which was a little faster but still slow compared to the others zipping by us. Perhaps the electric carts would have been faster but then we would have had to charge them. Oh well, no harm.
Oh, the pool. The Beach Club food was awesome. I didn't realize in advance that there is a fee to use the pool. There was literally no one at the beautiful pool.
We had the beach to ourselves. One day there was one lady 50 yards away but the rest of the time there was no one for miles either direction. We loved the isolation. Like our own private beach. You can see Hilton Head Harbour Town lighthouse from the beach in one direction and Tybee Island off in the distance the other direction. We saw lots of wildlife including dolphins, a shark, alligators, and heard there were coyotes.
This was a great break from the fast pace of our everyday life. I would recommend and I'm not easy to please. :0)
