Susan could not have been more sweet and helpful. We unfortunately had a ton of rain, but Susan was awesome, offering rides from the ferry in her van, umbrellas, and even waited for us during a celebration of life service. The house is very clean and kept up very well. Melrose is "interesting", but the area we stayed was very nice and the beach is great. Lots of Dolphin, birds, and fish enjoyed the rainy days we were there.

Beautiful deserted beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I went here with my family as well as my brother, sister and their families. We had such an amazing stay on the island! The house is beautiful and slept all 16 of us comfortably. We rarely saw anyone on the beach all day, and it was the middle of the summer! Susan was great and answered all of the questions that we had. We will be back!

Special place. Daufuskie takes a day or two to embrace and unwind. Once that happens peace and joy fills your heart and mind. My wife and I took 8 girls to this place and we had a blast. Anything we needed was handled quickly by Susan.

The location was amazing just a couple hundred feet from the beach. The deserted resort is sad to see that the beach club pool which looks like it would be amazing, has been abandoned. That being said we had a wonderful time! We can't wait to get back there.

Awesome adventure!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 11 (6 adults, 5 kids) all loved it! Susan Jones was a joy to work with. The house was clean, in a great location, and the trees were perfect for our hammocks. We loved exploring the island on golf carts and finding all sorts of wildlife.

The only negatives were that the doors did not fully close and the local playground was in need of a LOT of work. Despite these, we are all excited to come back. Thanks again Susan!

Had a Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I've ever rented a home for vacation and The Cottage on Daufuskie Island blew me away! The house in the photos were exactly the same upon our arrival! The home accommodated my entire family of 16! Literally .. right at the water's edge with fantastic un-obliterated views of the ocean. Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves every night! We watched gorgeous sunrises every morning and phenomenal sunsets every evening! We had such a great time that we never left the island the entire stay!! My family and I had the best vacation ever!!! Management was extremely accommodating and made our stay even more amazing!!
