Melrose on the Beach cottage description

The 45 minute boat ride from nearby Hilton Head or Bluffton makes the stress of the week peel away with the sea breezes and the smell of the ocean. Drive your golf cart; wind through the centuries old Live Oaks, pass the lush golf course greens on to your cottage. Unlock the door to be welcomed by a magnificent view of the Atlantic just steps away, not behind other cottages. No need to flip coins to see who gets the bigger room, both are the same size, each Large with two Queen beds and private baths. Completely renovated with hardwood floors and granite counters in the kitchen with a Caribbean flare.
Relax on the huge screened porch or walk on the wide beach or shady lanes. Explore the Marshes or the inlets by kayak.
Ride Golf carts, fly kites, read books, write a book, make s'mores over a campfire, eat at some of the low country restaurants.
The hardest thing to do on Daufuskie is to decide between walking the quiet, clean beach, reading a book by the fire, searching for the elusive alligator in the ponds, sighting the seasonal Sea Turtle eggs or exploring for historic relics such as Indian arrowheads from the Civil War and ruins from the plantation days. Then again a game of tennis or a round of golf might satisfy. Or you could visit the Silver Dew Pottery for a lesson and local souvenir, the Island Museum for an education of the island or the Community Farm with it's adorable animals. Make sure to ask what the animal's names are when touring the Farm.
Or just see what the island offers your senses.

                          About the owner: Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love to travel the world but always yearn to get to our favorite place, Daufuskie Island. This picture taken at Marshside Mama's.

                          Why the Owner Chose Melrose on the Beach:
                          Daufuskie intrigued our business and vacation interests. We knew that owning a place where our family could go on a weekend that didn't stress us out with traffic jams, long restaurant lines, and t-shirt shops one after the other AND be on the Atlantic Ocean within 5 hours was a good investment in family time.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We chose Daufuskie because it does not have all the chaotic demands of the typical tourist communities. We felt we could truly relax with family and friends while enjoying an incredible island experience so close to home. The Atlantic Ocean views from our screened porch, bedroom and yard are spectacular. We hear the waves, watch the boaters and the seagulls while eating breakfast on the porch.
