About the property

Cozy, 4 bedroom cottage perfect large families that wishes to enjoy Daufuskie!

Daufuskie Island is only accessible by ferry or private boat. The 4bedroom/4bath cottage is located on Melrose Plantation, 200yards from the ocean. Great views of the Atlantic Ocean, Hilton Head and Tybee Island. This cottage is cheerful, very spacious and decor is in very good condition. You travel the island by rental golf cart, bicycles or by foot. Flexible check in and check out if available. View is breath-taking!

With the pristine Daufuskie beaches and the Atlantic Ocean only 200 yards this is the location you want. In the morning or evenings, relax in the adirondack chairs positioned on the front porch and hear the ocean rolling in the distance.

If you are familiar with Daufuskie Island, you know what a special place it is. There is so much to do outdoors--in a beautiful, natural setting. We believe our Cottage represents an excellent value for the island. Clean, well maintained, with a great floor-plan and fresh furnishings, this is the comfortable, casual beach cottage that will allow you to create some great memories with family and friends. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

This lovely cottage has a cozy feel, and you can enjoy a tropical, wooded view from the perfectly situated porch. It has everything you'll need to get your special vacation underway. Internet/WIFI, easy access to the beach, nearby activities for a fee for all ages, including golf, tennis, biking, and kayaking.

Worth all the effort!

  • 5 of 5

It takes a bit of effort to get to Daufuskie but it is worth it all. From the day we booked, Susan, the property manager, walked us through everything to ensure we had a relaxing week in the cottages. When we arrived, she gave us plenty of space but responded to text messages within minutes to answer any questions. Several days we were on the beach with no other families. We enjoyed dinner at three of the four restaurants but also enjoyed late dinners at home. Our elderly dog chased crab on the beach like a puppy!

The property is perfect for multiple families to share and still have some space to themselves. If you are looking to check out for a while, this is the perfect spot. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about two weeks the next trip.

I also recommend May River Excursions for the private ferry ride and Cybervalet groceries to deliver your food to the ferry. Take the kids on the 20-point scavenger hunt. Ours took the GoPro and have priceless memories!

Thanks Susan!

Beautiful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Daufuskie Island and, WOW, what a wonderful trip it was. Our family so enjoyed the island and its peacefulness. It was a little bit of a challenge getting all of our belongings and groceries to the island from Hilton Head, but with the wonderful assistance of Susan Jones, Property Manager, and Brandy from Island Rentals everything worked out to perfection. Our many thanks to Susan Jones for all of her assistance from the beginning the rental to the end of stay. This home was probably the nicest VRBO homes that we have ever rented too! Lots of space, thoroughly equipped and very clean. Thank you, Susan Jones, for making all work so well!!

Wonderful Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this rental. The house was lovely with more than enough space for our 4 families including MANY small children. The proximity to the beach, playground, and pool was perfect. Susan, the property manager, went out of her way to make sure we had a great stay. Highly recommend!

Perfect beach vacation getaway! Quiet and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We love Daufuskie Island, it's quiet and beautiful, and our favorite thing to do is explore on golf carts. Our cottage exceeded our expectations! It was clean and spacious, the decor was pretty and tasteful, and there were beach towels and beach chairs and an umbrella, which was so convenient. We were walking distance to the gorgeous Melrose pool, and we took advantage of it all three days we were here. We loved sitting on our porch and looking at the ocean and enjoying the breeze. It was perfectly peaceful :) The property manager Susan communicated all the important details to us prior to our arrival and made sure we were completely taken care of. She was so kind and responsive! I highly recommend Daufuskie Island and renting this cottage!
