Recent Daufuskie Island reviews

  • This is Island Life

    "My family (2 adults/3kids/dog) had a great time on Daufuskie Island at this house. We travel 2-3x a year and I rely on the reviews a lot to make our decision, so hopefully this info helps you! House: I would call the rental a combination of house/cottage. Everything was up to date and in working condition. It has a very comfortable design with hardwood floors, nice furniture, comfortable beds, washer/dryer, flat screen TV's, screened porch and great views every morning at sunrise. Beach: The beach and waterfront is unique and like a combination of the ocean and a large lake. You get to see all of the wildlife with plenty of birds and dolphins, but the wave are not big. We found this perfect for our youngest (6) and dog to play in the water without worry of rough conditions. You still get to hear the waves rolling all night. The beach is clean and quiet, and about 50 yards from your porch. Daufuskie Island: Very unique place! If you deal with people daily and want a quiet, peaceful get-away with your family, this is the right place. If you want to be catered to or find entertainment, wrong place. The golf cart is essential and we used it to explore everywhere on the island. Beaches, communities, golf courses, wildlife, alligators, lunch/dinners - Everywhere you go is by the electric cart and it is an awesome way to travel. Melrose on the Beach Golf course: I cannot say enough how nice this course is. Up to date Callaway club rentals, golf carts with GPS, and very friendly staff. The first 15 holes are inland and beautiful. The last three holes play on the ocean and the views are perfect. Places to visit: We went all over the island, but the "main attractions" are very basic. Freeport Marina has a general store that has some very basic necessities and the Daufuskie Crab Company for lunch/dinner. Bloody Point has some high end houses, a golf course and decent restaurant. Marshside Momma's lived up to the reputation - a real "hole in the wall" with great food. What to bring: EVERYTHING. There is no exaggeration. All food, drink, condiments and spices - no real stores here. Make a list and pack. We used and recommend the private water taxi. They will take everything you bring. In closing, the place was perfect to get away from our busy life. The owner was very quick to reply to any questions we had. My only recommendations for this property would be WIFI and some beach chairs. Great vacation - will be back!"

  • Great Vacation

    "We had a wonderful time on Daufuskie Island. The beaches on the island are beautiful. The cottage was comfortable and clean and only a short walk to the ocean. You can tell the owners take good care of the cottage and we felt at home there. I especially enjoyed the back porch facing the golf course and marsh. The grounds at Melrose on the Beach are amazing. Lots of birds and even a few alligators that are great fun to watch from a distance :) The beach was never crowded and we even had it all to ourselves a few times which was a treat. The kids said it was there favorite beach trip ever. At low tide they explored the sand bar and found hermit crabs, star fish, and even a shrimp. The Beach Club restaurant serves an excellent dinner and while the pool was not open for swimming it was a nice one. We would definitely go back again!"

  • Anniversary

    "I booked the Evan cottage as a suprise for my wife on our 14th Anniversary. I have stayed on the Island before but this was my first stay in the Evan Cottage and will not be the last. The house was the perfect size and had everything I could possiblly need for a fun relaxing weekend. It was by far the cleanest house I have ever rented!! Thanks for thinking of everything and you will see us again soon..."
