About Mary Powell

We live in Georgia and enjoy our Daufuskie House for many family gatherings and just to get away from it all and RELAX!

Mary Powell purchased this house in 2006

Why Mary Powell chose Daufuskie Island

We fell in love with Daufuskie Island from the moment of our first visit to stay with some friends. From the experience of having s couple drinks waiting on the ferry to golf to spending a day on the secluded beach to a fun night at Marshide Mama's, we knew we had to get a place of our own. We have since become close friends with the full-time local residents and love spending as much time as possible on Daufuskie Island.

What makes this house unique

This house had the perfect amount of space for us to spread out in our own rooms or gather on the screened in porch, the size was perfect for all our family and friends.

Being able to take a golf cart ride down the sandy roads under the oak trees covered in spanish moss, to talking a quick stroll down down from the house to the county dock for fabulous sunsets this house all you would ever want for a vacation property.

Great place to just get away

  • 4 of 5

We had a blast. This house is very close to one of the best restaurant on the island. Love the history on the island and loved just riding the golf carts around. I would definitely rent this place again

Rented the house for 3 nights for a "girls getaway" with 6 friends. Five bedrooms and 3 baths gave everyone plenty of room! Took the ferry from Savannah and house is close enough to the dock at Marshside Mama's that you would not have to pay for transport. Just a very short walk. Interior of the house could use a paint job and a couple of the kitchen drawers were broken, but it was clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. It was chilly when we were there, so we didn't get to really enjoy the screen porch, but it would be very nice in warmer weather. Owner was easy to work with and very helpful with suggestions. Loved it and are already planning to go back next spring!

We had an amazing time with 4 other couples to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday. The property was great, and it is so close to Marshside Mama’s. We had a great time.

Since Dau­fuskie is an island without a bridge, you can only get here by passenger ferry or boat (no cars on the ferries). You’ll be able to leave your car on the mainland in a parking lot maintained by your ferry or water taxi company.

Daufuskie is the perfect place to get away from the hustle, bustle and stress of everyday life. Step back to another era without crowds, stoplights, office buildings and shopping centers.

Stroll on the quiet and uncrowded beaches. Take a golf car ride along sandy roads that pass under Spanish moss hanging from oak and palmetto trees. Enjoy world class golf, tennis, a day spa, horseback riding, boating, fishing, biking, dining and many other activities for both adults and children.
