Property description

If you have never been to Daufuskie are missing out. From the time you first board the ferry everything becomes very serene. The island has a special charm that welcomes you. Daufuskie Island is a hidden gem among many other coastal and island destinations in the southeastern US. It is private and relaxing without the crowding and commercial clutter that inevitably overtakes well-known destinations. If you want casinos, outlet malls and heavy traffic then you have plenty of other vacation choices. If you want to truly relax in a laid-back, uncrowded setting then Daufuskie may be the ideal location.
Ocean Edge Villa
This freshly updated 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo sits on the 3rd floor (4th level) of the Sandy Lane complex located on the grounds of the Bloody Point Resort. This family friendly and pet friendly unit sits over-looking the ocean and the pool. The master suite has a comfortable king bed and opens onto the balcony overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Attached is a private bathroom with both a shower and a whirlpool tub. The second master suite also has a king bed and private bathroom. This bedroom over looks the pool and bathroom has a shower and a huge garden tub. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and also has a private bathroom. This 3rd bedroom is prefect for children or another couple, the bathroom has a shower stall. All bedrooms have flat screen TV's with satellite TV and dvd players. Ocean Edge Villa has wireless internet through out the condo.
The kitchen is very modern with granite counter tops and both a Keurig and a Braun coffee makers . The appliances are all full size: 4 burner stove, full size oven, full size microwave and large refrigerator/freezer with an ice maker. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and cookware. There is also 2 bar stools that are perfect for eating a quick breakfast before heading out to the beach. An ample dinning area seats 8, (6 dinning room chairs and 2 others stored in the pantry). The dinning area overlooks the pool and is a perfect place for your entire group or family to enjoy a nice meal together.
The large living room is great spot to watch the sunset over the ocean or an after dinner movie or to play a board game with your group. The couch pulls out to sleep 2 more people. Many books, DVDs and board games are in the living room for use. The wrap around balcony has panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean. There is a huge table on the balcony perfect for a lunchtime break from the beach or pool or an after golf snack and drink. There are also lounge chairs that overlook the ocean, a great spot for your morning coffee or a nightcap.

**We do have a dog crate and high chair available at the condo complimentary with your stay.

Places to Eat:
If you don't feel like cooking, there are 4 restaurants on the island. The closest place to eat is the Eagles Nest located in the Bloody Point Clubhouse. If you feel like an appetizer and a drink, there is a nice bar to watch a game and grab a drink. The most famous place to eat on the island is Marshside Mama's. Just a short golf cart ride away with a menu that charges daily. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is more of a bar, so you may not want to bring young children later in the night. For more of a cook out feel, try the Old Daufuskie Crab Company. With an outdoor bar and picnic tables over looking the water, the Old Daufuskie Crab company is the spot to go. Make sure your golf cart is charged up because it is about 15 min drive. The last spot on the island, the Melrose Beach Club.

Things to Do:
Besides sitting on the beach or by the pool there are many other things to do. A special rate of 2 rounds of golf are included per day for $29 at Bloody Point Resort. This lovely Tom Weiskopf designed course first opened in 1991 and was updated by the Davis Love group in 2011. Perfect for golfers of all abilities, many of the holes over look the water for some great views. If you are looking to play another course, the Melrose Beach course is just a short ride away. Bike rentals also are available from Bloody Point.
Horseback riding and deep sea fishing are just of a few other activities available on the island.
Golf Cart
The only real way of transportation around the island is a golf cart or bicycle, and for long distances a cart is preferred method. Golf carts are available for rent from several different spot. We have a preferred relationship with Bloody Point Resort with a very attractive rate which we pass onto you. Both 4 seater and 6 seater carts are available and advanced reservations are strongly recommend.
How to get there:
Being an Island, the only way to get to Daufuskie is via a ferry. There are currently 3 different ferry services to get to Daufuskie. The first is public ferry from Hilton Head. This ferry is from Hilton Head to the Freeport Marina on Daufuskie. This ferry is also about an hour long. In addition to the ticket price there also a charge for luggage other than carry ones, you will also need to pay ground transportation to get from the Freeport Marina to Bloody Point. If you plan on this option, your luggage is not likely to be on the same boat as you, it usually arrives later in the day. However a positive about this ferry is that parking in Hilton Head is only $3 a day. The next option is May River Excursions. May river leaves from Blufton and parking is free. May River has a flexible schedule, however the boats are smaller and are not covered. There is additional charge for reasonably sized luggage so this option could make sense for larger size parties. However this boat arrives at public dock and so ground transportation also needed for this option.
Bloody Point Resort operates a semi-private ferry service that we can arrange for you. This ferry departs for the Westin Hotel in Savannah, Ga. This boat arrived directly on the grounds of Bloody Point where you met by the Bloody Point staff and transported to the condo. Parking at the Westin is $10 a day, advanced reservations are required. This ferry will take a reasonable amount of luggage but will not take hard sided coolers. Please note for 2016 bloody point has started charging for luggage, $12.50 per bag, so if you have a lot of luggage the other two might be a better option.
There are very few groceries for sale on the island, so if you plan on cooking in the unit, then you either need to bring your own groceries

Car: Not Necessary

Life on Daufuskie can best be described as very relaxing with great beaches, lots of open area, several golf courses, memorable restaurants and minimal traffic (golf carts and bicycles are the best ways to get around). Renters at this unit have access to 2 different pools, well-maintained tennis courts and the Bloody Point Golf course.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a professional couple with two great children who have become young adults and have both come to share our great interest in relaxing vacations as being very necessary to take a break from a high-stress career and reconnect with their significant other.

Why the Owner Chose Daufuskie Island, SC, USA:
Both as a couple and as a family we have had the opportunity to explore a number of great vacation destinations in the US, the Caribbean, Europe and Hawaii - always asking the question 'Do we like this place enough to want to own here?' Clearly there are places that called us back (e.g., St. Barts), but every location had something that kept us from 'pulling the trigger' such as accessibility, local attitudes, level of infrastructure, level of commercial development or provisions for Emergency medical care. Although no one is going to confuse Daufuskie with St. Barts in January or February we saw Daufuskie as retaining the charm that drew us to different islands 30 or more years ago - with a reasonable chance of retaining it for years to come. We knew that Daufuskie was a location that made sense for us the first time we visited, and continue to feel that way.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We considered a number of properties before moving forward with this one. We wanted (and were able to get): a terrific beach that is very close, fabulous views of the Atlantic from our 4th level (3rd. floor location), a family-friendly 3 bedroom layout in a well-maintained property. Candidly the décor was in serious need of updating when we bought it, and we have worked hard to create a charming, upscale property.
