Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The one and only island of Daufuskie! Take the ferry from Hilton Head or Savannah and feel any stress in your life instantly go away with the soft breeze and the refreshing smell of the ocean.

Transportation will be waiting your arrival at the landing, and take you and your luggage to Melrose Plantation, where your peaceful oceanfront cottage awaits you. We are pet friendly so please let us know if you are going to bring your furry friend and we will make the proper accommodations. The four passenger golf cart will be parked at the cottage when you arrive.

Walk in to a place with a magnificent view of the Atlantic that you will find nowhere else on earth. Both doors have been upgraded to electronic code locks for your convenience so you never have to worry about a key while your there!

Each bedroom is the same size with two Queens beds, and full private baths. The bathrooms are large and spacious and include a fairly large tub for a soothing bath. In the open kitchen you are provided with all the necessary pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils, with plenty of room for your groceries. We DO NOT provide WiFi. There are some networks in the area that may be available.

The screened in porch looking out at the ocean is a relaxing place to spend the evening with a cocktail. The sun rises in the east and is a beautiful sight coming up early in the morning with some fresh coffee.

On the island of Daufuskie the most difficult decision is to walk the quiet, clean beach, read a book on the back porch listening to the ocean, touring the island on your golf cart and seeing the many wild animals, the seasonal Sea Turtle eggs or historic relics from the Civil War. Don't forget horseback riding, game of tennis, or a round of golf at the famous Jack Nicholas golf course might satisfy. Or you could shop at the Silver Dew Pottery or the Gullah and Island Museum or the Community Farm. The Rum factory is also a nice stop for the adults!

Maybe even plan your week with fun filled activities from many of the charter fishing, jet skiing, para sailing, or dolphin tours offered in the area.

***At this time the Melrose Beach Club and pool is not open. They have not provided anyone with information about the time of its re opening date. Please contact them directly to determine the hours of operation. Some parts of the property are currently transitioning ownership and are not up to the level of appearance as the rest off the community.***

Our annual getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at 134 Ave. of Oaks for over our 5th stay. Each time we request to stay we are treated like family by the owners. The house is always ready for our arrival and when we get there we are able to enjoy the beach front view from either the screened in porch, front yard or we like to put up our hammocks in the trees just across the street. My boys love taking their bikes, playing on the playground and exploring the island. We have visited the cottage with a few people to the 8 guest that it sleeps and we are always comfortable with plenty of space. The cottage makes it easy to sit back, relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Great beach, great island, but the property left a lot to be desired.....

  • 2 of 5

This was a first time stay at the island. I was prepared for a remote stay but was unprepared for not having the necessary equipment to make basic meals or the comfort of seating to enjoy the beach views. Lots of essentials were missing in the kitchen. Many people would think that it is not necessary to lock a door on a remote beach but this girl could not get the back door locked without two people. The house was not very clean on arrival. And although the bedrooms are spacious, little attention was paid to the best area of the house, which is the porch that faces the beach. It is furnished with two plastic chairs. We ended up borrowing chairs to comfortably furnish that living area. When indoors, the TV only has basic service and there is little for entertainment in the form of games, etc. Fortunately, I had brought a few small games in my bags.

The golf cart was available as promised.

The island is genuinely wonderful. Loved exploring it! More information should be shared that the house is part of a foreclosed property and you feel as if you are renting in a very neglected portion of the island with many buildings in disrepair and unoccupied. Very sad stretch of the island, unfortunately. But the beach is as promised so if you don't care about your locale or your furnishings, this could be your place.

Owner's Response: Wow! I am sorry! I never heard any of this from you while you were there? I wish you could have communicated these issues with me so that we could have had a chance to address them instead of leaving a 2 star review.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

The place was fully stocked and the owner was very extremely helpful. We had some issues, but the owner was very helpful and made adjustments to compensate. The place has everything you need. We were happy that we brought an umbrella! The screened in porch was so relaxing. Recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet retreat!
