Why Deborah Smith chose Melrose on the Beach
This is a bright, airy cottage with a terrific location, a large and beautiful back yard, and (albeit a second row cottage), a nice view of the ocean.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Daufuskie Escape Cottage has an exceptionally nice screened porch! The front porch includes a swing bed and full dining table, and the walkway leads to gas grill, and then to a back screened porch with unique seating area and a smaller dining table. For chilly nights, there is a working gas fireplace.

Felt like home but with a better view
We loved the property. The front wrap around porch was wonderful. A great place to have dinner in the evening and a cup of coffee on the swing in the morning. It was very family and pet friendly. Deborah was extremely helpful with information for arrangements and things to do. The beaches were relaxing and not crowded. Everything about the island was laidback and simple. A great place to go and unwind. We will be back!
Relaxing long weekend!
The house is comfortable and beautifully furnished with a wonderful wrap around front porch with views of the ocean. Only a short walk or golf court ride to the uncrowded beach. We saw bald eagles, wood storks, egrets, herons and a variety of other birds while walking in the area. Don’t ’ miss Lucy Bells for lunch.
The location was PERFECT and the cottage was simply perfection as well! The screened in pourches were great for evening meals (with no bugs!) and the cottage was full stocked with every kitchen gadget one could need.
We will certainly be returning soon!!
The property was perfect! Tips for first timers to Daufuskie:
1: take the water taxi; it’s a fun experience and quicker than the ferry- we took MayRiver Excursions and fell in love with Olde Town Bluffton, too!
2: The only air conditioned restaurant (with actual servers) is Melrose Beach Club restaurant which is conveniently less than a 3 minute cart ride from the cottage. All of the public restaurants were very good but, had we known the other two were outdoor eating we would have planned for earlier lunch or later dinner the first few days we were on the island.
3: come stocked with groceries and snacks..they aren’t kidding about no grocery store on the island. And you’ll likely grow tired of the same menu at the 3 available restaurants.
4: explore the island and all it has to offer...and I highly recommend visiting the school grounds coffee for a refreshing iced lemonade!
Thanks, Deborah for being so accommodating and welcoming us to your home island! And thanks to the property owners for sharing such a sweet cottage with us!
