Why Deborah Smith chose Daufuskie Island
This beautiful little house was built just 5 years ago by an Atlanta couple who did an exception job of designing and decorating the home. It is extremely well-constructed and includes many, many extra features. The location is wonderful, and provides a great option for visitors who want to experience the real Daufuskie.
What makes this House unique
Too many extra benefits to list, but they include an extremely quiet and serene wooded setting, a convenient location close to some of the Historic District's most significant sites, easy access to Beach Road, which provides a 5 minute cart ride to the best beach on the island, and a 2-3 minutes ride to the memorable Lucy Bell's Cafe, a short walk to the School Grounds Coffee Shop and to the Church, and a 10 minute cart ride to the Melrose pool. (Daily fees apply.) Re golfing, we can help you set that up. (Contact owner.)

We had a remarkable time on Daufuskie and staying in the Dreams House! Deborah went above and beyond to communicate with us and help us - keeping us up to date with COVD-19 procedures, helping arrange transportation that fit our social distancing preferences, and cleaning/sanitizing the house. She is a kind, thoughtful owner and even brought over a random kitchen utensil the moment I needed it! The house is as lovely, clean, and cozy as the photos convey. It fit our family superbly - 2 adults and 4 children. The loft is perfect for children. The two downstairs bedrooms have very comfortable beds, soft sheets, and lovely bathrooms. The house was well-stocked! I cooked almost all our meals and the pots, dishes, etc. made it just like home. There are plenty of linens for the beds, soft blankets for relaxing, and more than enough bath towels. The washer and dryer are excellent! The large smart tv was a big hit with the kids while we sipped coffee on the porch bed swing. I'd read great reviews of the bed swing, and it did not disappoint! The porch is such a great space to hang out, eat, and take in the sounds of nature around you. There were board games and coloring items in the house that we loved using. We also really appreciated the outdoor shower (the only place my kids bathed during our stay!) and hose for rinsing off after the beach. We were thankful for all the beach toys & chairs available in the shed too. Despite the current pandemic, we felt perfectly at ease in this house and on the island. If you are looking for a simple, "off the grid" vacation, THIS IS IT! We spent hours on the beach without seeing a soul. The golf carts are essential for getting around (the soft, sandy roads can be challenging for bikes), and provide excellent opportunities for exploring the island and viewing wildlife. While practicing social distancing, the few residents we did talk to were extremely welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed an impromptu indigo lesson from the owner of Daufuskie Blues, and the open air gallery of IronFish Art is very cool. We got take-out from Lucy Bell's one time and it was delicious! The slow pace of life on the island is wonderful and the perfect respite. We had already recommended Daufuskie and the Dreams House to someone before we'd even left the island! Tour Daufuskie (golf carts) & May River Excursions (water taxi) were excellent to work with also! Highly recommend!
Return to the cozy blue cottage
This was a return trip to Daufuskie Island and the lovely blue cottage with my two dogs. The cottage is located in the quiet historic district and has all the needed amenities for an extended stay, including a fully equipped kitchen. Everything is clean and comfortable, especially the bed swing on the porch—a wonderful place to relax, read or nap. The owner is attentive and helpful and sincerely wants you to enjoy your stay. The cottage is a 5 minute walk from School Grounds Coffee and a short golf cart ride away from the beach and Lucy Bell’s Cafe. It’s a great place to acquire the rhythm of island life!
The house is absolutely a must see. Has everything you need and is immaculately clean. Great location on island to see all the sights. Deb was so thoughtful and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Such a gracious host. We will definitely be back! If you are planning on Daufuskie, this is the place to stay.
Love this place! Can’t wait to return!
This home was absolutely wonderful! I couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay at! Great location on Daufuskie, nice and quite. Super comfortable and Deb (owner) was amazing. Karen (property manager) was also extremely helpful! My husband and I are coming back soon! Absolutely perfect find!
We had the best weekend celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary here! 5+ star experience for sure! Deborah gave us the best welcome!! We are already planning our next trip to return and bring our children. This house has such a great location and is truly named right... a Daufuskie dream home! Highly recommend this house and this beautiful Daufuskie island!!
