Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Traveling to Daufuskie where the island does not connect to any mainland by bridge, you'll enjoy a beautiful ferry ride from Hilton Head where you'll leave your car and take a step back in time. Once at the dock you'll travel to our house by way of land transportation or golf cart.

Our home is located directly across from the 18th green of the Melrose Jack Nicklaus Golf Course with 5 bedroom/5 bath home gives you a perfect view of the Calibogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. You can step off the front porch, walk across the 18th green, and right onto the beach at low tide. Enjoy rocking on the front porch taking in the serene atmosphere and wild life, with room for the whole family to experience the history and beauty of Daufuskie.

About Property Manager/Owner

Coming from a small town in Pa. our family built this home in 2000 after spending almost 14 years vacationing on Daufuskie. My Dad played in the Harbor Town Heritage Pro Am Tournament for several years, and it was the one place our family would vacation each summer, some falls, and even a few Christmases.

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Daufuskie Island

The Island has such rich history, including a little First Union African Baptist church we attend while we are there, with a rich history that could never be matched. We grew up vacationing on the island like it was a second home. We found Indian pottery and arrowheads while walking the beach. These are just a few of the historical aspects deeming Daufuskie to be so unique, rich, and diverse in its offerings.

What makes this house unique

Listening to the calm and serene sounds of the Calibogue Sound, & watching the bald eagles fly by, and viewing the fireworks at Harbor Town and Tybee island on the 4th of July are just a few things we see from our front porch. Our home is set up to enjoy the company of one another, to cook and share a meal, catch blue crabs in the ocean when the tide is low, or share dinner with an islander at the Daufuskie Crab Company or the Eagles Nest at Bloody Point; or we may enjoy more downhome Southern Country cooking at Marshside Mamas while listening to a live band with the locals. These are just a few of the special things we look forward to enjoying on our visits to this island paradise we call Daufuskie.

Beautiful view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with friends (12 people total) to celebrate my husband's birthday. The pictures of the inside of this house don't do it justice! It was so open and spacious! We were able to cook breakfast every morning, and grill at night. When we weren't out exploring the island, we were hanging out on the huge front porch that overlooks the ocean. There is a beach during low tide that is beautiful (my husband found an arrowhead!). We will definitely stay here again!

Map

Enjoy walking the beach, catching blue crabs when the tide is out, the local low country cooking at either of the restaurants on the island, visiting local shops and businesses such as the Daufuskie Rum Company, the beauty of the wild life, and so much more. The hosue is located across from the Jack Nicklaus golf course- the 18th green, which is currently not being run, but with likely return due to some changes with the local Melrose resort. The beach club/pools are usually open in the "in season" with some recent changes. However, the beach is always accessible at different points depending upon the tide!
