Daufuskie Island is an island reached only by ferry from Bluffton or Hilton Head and what a beautiful ride! The cost of the public ferry(from Hilton Head) and ground transportation to the cottage is $55 per person RT. Parking may be extra. May River Excursions (from Bluffton) offers a ferry service with free parking. Melrose Resort has been in bankruptcy and was recently transferred to the main creditor. The majority of cottages at the end of Melrose Resort (of which we are one) are (mostly)privately owned. The privately owned cottages are charming and well maintained and close to a wonderful beach.
This Cottage has an open front and screened back porch to enjoy peaceful ocean and marsh views. There are two large bedrooms with full baths that open to a great room/kitchen area. Heavy firewall separates the other side and no group above or below to disturb.The screen porch overlooking a small tidal marsh is a favorite place to take meals.
Daufuskie is a beautiful island untouched by rampant development--no movie houses, fast food chains, shopping centers or things associated with high density living. Daufuskie is loved and appreciated by those who want to enjoy a coastal area unspoiled by modern development.
