"We stayed here over the Halloween weekend and had an absolutely amazing time! The house is beautiful inside and out and being secluded and surrounded by the beautiful trees added such a great feeling! Great location and wonderful home! Can't wait to come back!"

"We attended a wedding on Daufuskie during October. While weddings are all consuming, we did enjoy our time in this wonderful property in the Melrose area of Daufuskie. The weather was perfect and all of our time was enjoyed. I will look forward to going again and this time relaxing in this exceptional property. Very nice unit with great views. Everyone associated with this property were great to work with."

"This was one of the best vacations we have gone on in a long time due to the relaxation mind set that Daufuskie has every day! The Owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodations were exceptional. And the location was perfect. We could not have asked for a better time!!!"

"This was our first trip to Daufuskie & we were not disappointed!
Our ride over to the island was an adventure in itself. We rode with May River Excursions & went so fast through the intercostal waterways, around marsh grass, past crabbing boats, etc. Be warned though, their boat is not covered, so you may find it helpful to put things into plastic totes.
We were met at the dock upon arrival by Odie. He was an interesting character. He literally MADE our trip! He is hilarious! He's very polite & ended up being our chauffeur all over the island. There were 7 of us. The golf cart provided only holds four (renting another was out of the question as an event on island took all other golf carts) so for us all to go out to eat, Odie would pick us up & chauffeur us where we wanted to go.
We enjoyed exploring the island by golf cart.
The view of the ocean from the house was gorgeous! The street was quiet. I think we were one of the few houses that were occupied this weekend. We went in October, so I'm sure there are lots more people during peak season. The use of Melrose Beach Club was a welcomed bonus. Honestly we had kind of forgotten about it until the last day, but it's so beautifully maintained that I wish we had spent every extra minute there. They have a restaurant and it's within walking distance from the house. The pool/hot tub area is very nice with ocean views as you relax.
The home was nice & just as described. Beds were comfortable & everything inside the home was beautifully decorated with a beach motif. There were old pictures on the walls of Daufuskie circa 1900. These were a nice touch to the home.
One thing we didn't think to bring was paper towels. Add that to your list for your trip.
Others have mentioned the TV, but we never even turned it on! There were too many other things to enjoy. Bring water shoes for walking on the beach as there is an occasional sand spur & those things hurt if they get in your foot. There were a few beach chairs & boogie boards on the back porch & a grill for your use.
The deer we saw would just walk right up to you. We had a fawn that wanted to be petted & spent about 10 minutes with us.
We also saw approximately 20 dolphins playing in the water about 40 yards off the shore.
Honestly, pictures just don't do the Island of Daufuskie justice. It's a unique place with a history & life all its own. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend this beach house. We had a ball!!"
