About the property

Fabulous 2 Bedroom / Bath Large Screened In Porch overlooking Golf Course

This 2 bedroom/2bath Villa is located in the Melrose Plantation. Daufuskie Island is accessible only by boat! The Villa is a short walk to beach. The Villa has two bedrooms very nicely decorated, one king with en suite bath with huge shower & spa tub. Second bedroom, two queens and ensuite bath with double vanity, both have tv & mini fridge & private entrances. The Villa and especially it's kitchen are well stocked so you can enjoy your vacation.

Enjoy coffee and breakfast on the your own private screened porch among live oaks and Spanish moss while planning your day.

If you like photography, the scenery alone is worth the trip. Nature wise, you'll see tons of egrets, storks, cranes and a possible eagle here and there, and gators in the fresh water ponds. The island is a great place to explore! Very little vehicles on the island outside of golf carts, it is a walkers/runners paradise. Miles of trails with exceptional views.

From the beach you will see Hilton Head Harbour Town lighthouse from one direction and Tybee Island from the other directions. The playground is a short stroll as well as the beach.

This magnificent Villa on Daufuskie is the perfect place for Relaxing and making family memories!

About Susan Jones / Property Management

Mike and I would like to welcome you to 107B Easter Beach Villa. My love of the seashore and Mike's of fishing drew us here. We are snowbirds from the Northwest corner of Pennsylvania known as the snow belt due to our proximity to Lake Erie. In retirement we are delighting in the growth of our family through marriages and births. Beginning in January we became proud owners in Daufuskie and plan to include the island way of life in our next adventure together. You will find this barrier island to be a quiet place to enjoy your peaceful vacation experience. The full time residents are warm, welcoming and have a real desire for you to uncover all the island has to offer. We are so pleased that Susan Jones is our property manager. She is a "one of a kind special lady" and is available to assist you during your stay. We hope you have a wonderful experience as we welcome you into our seashore sanctuary.

Wishing you all the best,

Mike and Della

Wondering what you think of this.

5 star Villa on a deserted island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week in this beautiful Villa. We had the best time. We enjoyed being “alone” on the beach and not see many people around. This Island is just couple miles from Hilton Head, but it is nothing like it. Stepping on Daufuskie island is like stepping on another world. Everyone on the island was extremely nice and helpful.

Since the Melrose Inn Resort has closed it’s doors, there is no pool or restaurant near the villa. There are only 4 restaurants to eat at on the island and they are not open everyday. So make sure you bring plenty food and drinks.

5 STARS VILLA: This villa is one of the BEST we have ever stayed at (and we rent several properties a year). The ocean theme decor is beautiful and each room is well thought. It is very clean and it had everything we needed in the kitchen (more than we usually get in a rental). The porch is lovely for morning coffee or late evening wine. Our family of 5 had enough room for everyone and we were not on each others toes.

Susan, the property manager was AWESOME!!!! She responded promptly in every questions we had. The beach umbrella broke and she delivered a new one while we were ON THE BEACH!! What more can you ask.

Good to know…

The general store near the Crab Company is the only store on the island to have food and it has the bare minimum (bread, sometimes milk (not all the time), beers, can of tuna, …). Don’t expect to be able to find enough to make a meal. Bring ALL the food you think you will need. There is a Publix before the marina, make sure to stop there. Don’t forget plenty sun lotion and bug spray (you will be happy you did).

Make sure to get tickets AND make reservations for the ferry to come on the island. Susan’s staff will pick you up at the Ferry and take you to the villa.

You will need golf cart (ask Susan for one). You cannot do or get anywhere without one. It is so fun to explore the island. The wild life is amazing. We saw Herons, Pelicans, Fox squirrels, alligators, lots of deers. We enjoyed just driving around the island on the gold cart and explore the little hidden roads… So many beautiful things to see.

The 4 restaurants on the island are not open everyday so you will be limited in your choices. The food is good but very expensive, especially Marshside Mama and Bloody Point (overpriced). Lucy Bell’s cafe was probably our favorite (David is so sweet). Freeport Crab Company was ok. They had music on weekend and a bar (no wine though).

relax and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

All kinds of comforts here in this condo on the island! We have stayed in the building before and this unit does not disappoint with it's well furnished screen porch overlooking the golf course. I think the best part was how they worked with me to have golf carts and bikes added to my reservation so exploring the island was at my fingertips. We'll be back!

Perfect place for beach, pool, golf and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great beach house! Very beachy and had everything we needed to support our time on the beach with beach chairs umbrellas and beach towels. having access to the Melrose beach club pool was perfect when needed a break from the sand, sun, and extremely balmy July water of the Atlantic . The chair side food and beverage service at the pool was perfect! The kitchen amenities were perfect and the beds were very comfy! Our family of 6 fit nicely in this space!

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we wanted. The location was very close to the beach and the pool/clubhouse. It was well maintained, clean, and had plenty of room for our family. The full length screened porch is definitely a bonus and was great for having early morning coffee or late night drinks and relaxation. The property manager provided us with information to include helpful tips before our arrival and was available to answer any questions we had. We enjoyed our unique island adventure and would definitely stay in this house again. Thank you!
