A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to spend a lovely week at this house and can't wait to go back. Everything is the house is perfect and so well done. It was clean, orderly and everything has been thought of. We had plenty of room for our two families and still spend lots of time together in the great room. Our favorite thing was probably that we had an awesome house to stay at and it was so close to everything Daufuskie has to offer. What a terrific house on a special island.

July 4th on daufuskie

  • 4 of 5

my family stayed at this large home for July 4th vacation. Daufuskie island was great for us with all our kids and something to do all the timre. the beach is great and the pool had lots of kids there. the only thing that happened was the AC went out, but the property people came and had it fixed that day so that was good. we will try to get back to daufuskie because everyone had a fun time.

Wow - what a magical place!

  • 5 of 5

Daufuskie is a beautiful island perfect for anyone looking for solitude combined with a hundred things to do by yourself or with your family.

The house could not have been more perfect - plenty of bedrooms, amazing views, beautifully decorated, right on the golf course AND the ocean. WOW. Definitely one of the most beautiful and spacious low country homes on the island. I would highly recommend for groups of all sizes and interests. We had a blast!
