Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in upstate South Carolina but are lovers of the low country. We enjoy the dolphins, shrimp boats and wildlife that Daufuskie offers. This home is stress relief, a place for the kids to be kids, and to recharge for life on this side of the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Daufuskie Island, SC, USA:
I grew up going to Fripp Island in the summers , before it became crowded. My best memories are riding bikes, looking for alligators and finding sand dollars. Daufuskie offers that to our children.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The ferry is always fun, you meet the most unique people on the ride across, it gives you just enough time to transition from mainland time to island time. Since there is no bridge, it is very quiet, and gives anyone visiting time to reflect, think, and enjoy what they normally overlook in day to day life.
