Overview

Daufuskie Island Resort Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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. 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.

Great house and host

  • 4 of 5

This house is nicely positioned right in front of the beach access. It is clean and comfortable. Everything went smoothly with the transportation from the dock and our van driver Freddie gave us the lay of the land. Jonathan was in constant contact concerning a small hiccup we had and was very helpful and easy to work with. Thank you for all your help. We would stay here again.

Relaxing and enjoyable as always

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at 134 Avenue of Oaks and was enjoyable as ever. We were very excited about visiting the cottage and Daufuskie. We brought bikes for the kids and the rode all the time.

The cottage was clean and ready for us when we arrived.

We will be booking our 5th visit soon!

Daufuskie Tranquil Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful cottage and island to visit when you crave a respite from the busyness of life. The cottage was spacious and well appointed, and the screened in porch with multiple ceiling fans, provided a great place to sit with an early morning cup of coffee listening to the waves a mere football field and a half from the ocean. Having access to the Melrose Beach Club pool was a delight as well as using the provided golf cart to explore the island. Also provided with the rental was transportation both to and from the cottage. We had a few questions on arrival, but Jonathan was quick to get back with us. While you're on the island, a trip to Melrose Beach Club for dinner is a must (call ahead) as well as a trip to The Glass House for beautiful jewelry.

My only suggestion would be a small on-site notebook with details about the golf cart (how long it goes on a full charge), info on swimming at Melrose (we were uncertain if this was included), transportation policy to/from the ferry, a map of the island, craft places to go, history of the island, etc. All in all, you can't go wrong with a visit to this beautiful oceanfront cottage! We'll definitely be returning!

Perfect little Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, everyone we met was super friendly, the golf course was beautiful, and the beach was perfect for all-day play! With the wide low tide beaches, the kids stayed busy catching hermit crabs and finding shells. The fact that this is a pet friendly cottage and beach made this the perfect getaway for the ENTIRE family. The island itself is hauntingly beautiful, and we can't wait to return.. We had one little 'oops' on our first night that turned into a story we all have for the telling for years to come... the golf cart is NOT equipped with lights and we didn't realize this until we got ready to head back to the cottage after a wonderful evening filled with yummy food and great conversation at the Sunset Grill. Navigating Daufuskie Island with no lights at night is a daunting task, but we turned it into an adventure with the help of a full moon and phone GPS! We made it back just fine, and even set out again a couple of nights later, prepared with hand held flashlights in tow. The sunsets on the dock and fried shrimp and hushpuppies were totally worth it! This was one of the most memorable trips we have ever had, and I see a new tradition in our future!

What I would improve? The mattresses are a little too firm for my achy hips, but a nightly dose of Aleve, and I was fine.

Great Melrose location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, Jonathon!! Thanks for quickly answering our call, too. It was a relaxing and very enjoyable stay for our family. The cart worked well - which is a big plus, and your kitchen was well-stocked in cooking pans, etc. We'd love to stay there again, sometime! Thank you.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed on this property, and we hope to visit again. The house is spacious, clean, well-maintained, and full of amenities. The owner is very accommodating and quick to respond. My family loved taking the FREE golf cart all over the island and exploring the beautiful history it has to offer. My wife and daughters especially enjoyed the ocean-side pool! There really is nothing to dislike about this place. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! For those visiting Daufuskie for the first time...bring plenty of bug spray....May River Excursions is the way to go as far as the trip to and from the island...and make sure you contact Ground Transportation before you arrive, so that they'll be there to pick you up.
