About the property

Beautiful Historic District House - 2 Bedrooms & Sleeping Loft - Many Extras!

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST TAKE A BOAT TO GET TO DAUFUSKIE ISLAND (WE HELP WITH THE LOGISTICS) AND YOU SHOULD PLAN TO SPEND APPROXIMATELY $55 PER PERSON ROUNDTRIP FOR BOTH BOAT AND GROUND TRANSPORTATION SERVICES. **** Be sure to read important info at the end of this description. ****

****

The "Da Fuskie Dreams" House is an incredibly wonderful addition to the Daufuskie vacation home rental inventory! It's difficult to describe how lovely and unique this house is! It's breathtakingly lovely...starting with the fabulous screened-in front porch with its suspension "swing bed" and "swing table!" As soon as you walk onto the porch, you will know you are in for a one-of-a kind island experience! ****

We're getting ahead of ourselves! Let's talk about the location. ****

This beautiful house (just 4 years old!) is located in the heart of Daufuskie's Historic District, and is perfect for visitors who want to truly experience the local island life on our special island. Visitors are an easy walk away from Daufuskie's historic church, from the Mary Fields School (now our community center, including a coffee shop and the Daufuskie Blues business), and from the historic Francis Jones House. Beach Road is just around the corner, and the best beach on the island is a 5 minute golf cart away. Oh...and you're a 2 minute cart ride away from the quaint and memorable Lucy Bell's Cafe! ****

This house is perfect for those who want to get off the beaten track and really get to know this unique and quirky island, including its warm and friendly residents. Visitors are given the opportunity to experience an island life that has all but disappeared from the Low Country region. ****

But let's talk about the house! You’ll love the beauty and comfort of this well-equipped house, its serene setting, and large screened-in front porch. The house is impeccably constructed and designed. The pretty kitchen is fully equipped and will make preparing family meals a snap. The Living Room includes great views of the surrounding woods, and includes a flat-screen Smart TV with free ROKU and Netflix. (And WIFI is free.) You'll find the nearby Iron Fish Art Gallery's art throughout the house. ****

The Mermaid Bedroom and the Beach Bedroom are both located on the main floor. Each has a queen-size bed, a view of the surrounding woods, and en suite bathrooms. ****

The Dreams Loft offers more sleeping options, including a queen-size futon and a Day Bed...and a whimsical adjoining half bathroom. (Kids love this space!) ****

The Da Fuskie Dreams House is located on a private and serene wooded setting. There are lots of outside extras such as a hammock suspended between two trees, a fire pit, an outdoor hot/cold shower, and a garage for your rental golf cart. (We will help set up your rental cart with Tour Daufuskie, and it will be delivered directly to your house.) ****

And, by the way, the owner lives nearby and is available to help with logistics for getting to the island and information about every aspect of Daufuskie. ****

Quite frankly, this house has been the talk of the island since it was built, and literally EVERYONE who sees it raves out its uniqueness, beauty, and serene setting. ****

What Else You'll Want to Know:

The owner of this beautiful house lives a short distance from the Da Fuskie Dreams House. She is always available to answer questions and provide assistance, and specializes in helping her visitors with all aspects of getting to the island and enjoying their stay once here. Her motto? "No Bridge, No Problem!!" ****

About Deborah Smith

Deborah is a Daufuskie resident (and lives just down the road from the Da Fuskie Dreams House), and is owner/president of Daufuskie Rental Group. She greatly enjoys sharing this special island with visitors, and works hard to ensure an easy and memorable trip to her guests.

Deborah Smith purchased this house in 2017

Why Deborah Smith chose Daufuskie Island

This beautiful little house was built just 4 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 the Bloody Point golf course, and a 2-3 minutes ride to the memorable Lucy Bell's Cafe.

Can’t wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

The Daufuskie Dreams House is an absolute gem! Deborah greeted us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home and showed us a map of the island. She even had island music playing and had brought a plate of brownies over from School Grounds Coffee House and called us to tell us about some cool happenings on the island. The home was immaculate and the beds were so comfortable. The swinging bed and picnic table were so fun! Deborah was kind enough to reserve a golf cart for us at a greatly discounted rate which was much appreciated. The floor plan is perfect for two couple plus kids. Directly next door through the trees is the Francis Jones House, a restored Gullah home where miss Sally Ann Robinson lives-she is a 6th generation Daufuskian and has the best Devil Crabs! Did I mention that I love Deborah? I know where I’ll be staying the next time I return!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

As always I enjoyed my stay. Debra is a fabulous hostessed. The home was properly equipped with everything you'll need to make a great meal. The rooms and the upstairs are nice comforting and relaxing. The fire pit is an awesome addition. The front...WOW. You'll want to spend all your time on the front porch. This is a must book. Great if you're traveling alone or as a couple. Cheers!

Everything you could need for a stay on Daufuskie!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great location, great island! The house is the perfect size, clean and provided plenty of supplies for the stay. Centrally located on the island, you are a short cart ride to the beach, docks, restaurants and historic sites. The island is low key and very relaxing, even in "peak" season. Deborah was very accommodating and provided excellent communication. Highly recommend!
