Property type cottage

Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The one and only island of Daufuskie! Take the ferry from Hilton Head or Savannah and feel any stress in your life instantly go away with the soft breeze and the refreshing smell of the ocean.

Transportation will be waiting your arrival at the landing, and take you and your luggage to Melrose Plantation, where your peaceful oceanfront cottage awaits you. We are pet friendly so please let us know if you are going to bring your furry friend and we will make the proper accommodations. The four passenger golf cart will be parked at the cottage when you arrive.

Walk in to a place with a magnificent view of the Atlantic that you will find nowhere else on earth. Both doors have been upgraded to electronic code locks for your convenience so you never have to worry about a key while your there!

Each bedroom is the same size with two Queens beds, and full private baths. The bathrooms are large and spacious and include a fairly large tub for a soothing bath. In the open kitchen you are provided with all the necessary pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils, with plenty of room for your groceries. We DO NOT provide WiFi. There are some networks in the area that may be available.

The screened in porch looking out at the ocean is a relaxing place to spend the evening with a cocktail. The sun rises in the east and is a beautiful sight coming up early in the morning with some fresh coffee.

On the island of Daufuskie the most difficult decision is to walk the quiet, clean beach, read a book on the back porch listening to the ocean, touring the island on your golf cart and seeing the many wild animals, the seasonal Sea Turtle eggs or historic relics from the Civil War. Don't forget horseback riding, game of tennis, or a round of golf at the famous Jack Nicholas golf course might satisfy. Or you could shop at the Silver Dew Pottery or the Gullah and Island Museum or the Community Farm. The Rum factory is also a nice stop for the adults!

Maybe even plan your week with fun filled activities from many of the charter fishing, jet skiing, para sailing, or dolphin tours offered in the area.

***At this time the Melrose Beach Club and pool is not open. They have not provided anyone with information about the time of its re opening date. Please contact them directly to determine the hours of operation. Some parts of the property are currently transitioning ownership and are not up to the level of appearance as the rest off the community.***

fantastic visit

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in the cottage. It was comfortable, casual, and very well stocked with the necessities. Terrific access to the beach made our vacation perfect.

The golf cart caused a little bit of trouble - it didn't hold a charge very well and took a LONG time to charge even though we kept it plugged in the entire time we weren't using it.

Otherwise, a delightful and stress free getaway!

Clean and comfortable with all the materials needed for an enjoyable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property on the beach. Came to the island with my husband, my parents, and mother in law to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. The property had everything we needed...grill, stocked kitchen with dishes/utensils/cookware being that we brought our own food to cook. The golf cart came in handy getting around the island. Touring the island we found an amazing Rum factory, local restaurant, fabric shop with indigo dye, and historic sites such as the First Union African Baptist church. Beach days were made fun by the floatation devices on the property. Will definitely come back to the island and stay at this residence!! Owner was understanding of a family emergency and need to leave early and I was very grateful.

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved Daufuskie Island! It was sad that the beach club at Melrose was closed and the closest pool was at Bloody Point (10 dollars for adults and 7 dollars for kids). The property was not as clean as we would like but we are pretty clean people. We would definitely stay here again and will hopefully bring the rest of our family here next year!

Extremely relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful. The front yard is basically the ocean. Some minor cleaning issues like a dirty fridge handle, but beds, bedrooms, living room, kitchen, all cozy and lovely. Beach island lifestyle was cool! You get around by golf cart which makes it easy to catch a sunset all over the island. The restaurants are as casual as they come, which we loved, so don't expect 5 star service. Sunsets are breath taking. As other reviewers wrote, the Melrose resort is abandoned which is can be creepy (that's why there's 4 stars vs 5), BUT the plus side is that the beach was quiet, not crowded and the favorite part of our trip. Highly recommend!
