About the property

Paradise Plantation Vacation Rentals is located on an Antebellum Southern Plantation Site in Daufuskie Island's Historic District. Nestled on a quiet lot, with serene views of ancient oaks from the front porch swing.

Take a deep breath, relax, and experience a moment back in time. A walk around the yard or an evening walk down the lane will help you discover plantation relics and pottery along the way.

Because Daufuskie Island is only accessible by boat (There are NO ROADS to get here ! ) it has remained a serene, unspoiled island hideaway., like taking a walk back in time ! Dont worry about the details of it all, we can absolutely help you with planning for transportation and supplies. We know all kinds of secrets and tips to help make the logistics of planning your adventure a breeze !

The owners also own a jewelry store and can make a keepsake of your vacation treasures. Owners are often onsite and can give personalized tour information, sightseeing spots, or historical background.

Grab a sweet tea or a mint julep and join us for a vacation you will never forget !!

Why Shawnee & Reese Rohdenburg chose Off Island Areas

We have visited Daufuskie Island for many years and are COMPLETELY IN LOVE with the entire island. Our goal was to own a property on Daufuskie that we could share with our own family and meet new friends !

What makes this house unique

Quiet, relaxing and off the beaten path, yet....conveniently nestled right in the middle of it all ! The view from the front porch swing is AMAZING !


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Quaint house in great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay overall and Daufuskie is a very laid back and calming step back in time. We had two "plugged" in kids so it was nice to see them interact without an Ipad attached to them. I did miss the fact that there wasnt cable or wifi listed and our kids were somewhat disappounted with that in the evenings but the home was refreshingly cool, especially with August humidity. It was very close to Freeport marina and that was great for not having to pay extra for transport to golf cart. We went with the recommended golf cart company and Brandy was very accommodating to us. I would probably rent a gas one next time but was grateful for all she did for us.

The owner was very quick to respond to us and the house provided us with what we needed. Thank you for having us!

Very Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very helpful right from the beginning. This was our first time going to Daufuskie and there were some unique arrangements that needed to be made. They provided contact information and clear instructions of how to get on the island, what was needed while on the island and transportation. The house was very quaint and clean. We absolutely loved the screened in porch. The locals were also wonderful. I cannot say enough about how enjoyable our trip was. We are going to visit many more times in the future.

Staying at Paradise was so wonderful. It was comfortable, clean, out of the way and exactly what we like in a vacation. Reese and Shawnee were so very helpful in helping us to connect with boat travel, golf carts, bikes, all that made our getting there, being there and going home almost seamless! thank you so very much. We will highly recommend this to our friends int he frozen north of Vermont.

Thank you for a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Our stay there was one of the best vacations yet.

The owners catered us with all our needs, the place was very clean and well stalked with food.

They gave us a tour of the island and also got to relax at the pool.

We didn't want to come home.

Thank you and we can't wait to come again.
