Melrose Plantation cottage description

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.

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.

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.
