We imagine you will find yourself strolling from your cottage to the beach over and over. This beautiful beach is perfect for long walks, jogging, and even bike riding. Families especially enjoy the relatively calm waters where children can swim and play without fear of a strong undertow. It’s a great beach for building sand castles and hunting for shells and sand dollars after the tide goes out.
Folks also enjoy touring the island by golf cart, by bicycle, and by simply taking nice long walks.
The wildlife is abundant and breathtaking. Melrose is the home of a Great White Egret rookery, and at certain times of the year you will see hundreds of these graceful birds settle in for the night. Nests of American Bald Eagles can sometimes be found nearby, and now and then vigilant visitors can actually catch site of a Loggerhead Turtle coming ashore to lay hundreds of eggs in the soft sand.
You will want to spend time exploring the rest of this unique and special island. Accessible only by ferry, water taxi, and private boat (we will help with your arrangements), Daufuskie's isolation from the hustle and bustle of the mainland provides a one-of-its-kind experience for those looking to truly get away from it all. You won't find a friendlier place, and one of the best things about visiting this island is getting to know the local folks, and its diverse and interesting culture.
If you're looking for an old-fashioned beach vacation experience, this comfortable and pretty cottage will exceed your expectations. We expect it will be very popular with island visitors, so be sure to reserve your time at this lovely vacation home today!
