About Marjorie Melvin

I was born and raised in Beaufort. I left the area in 1970 and after a long marriage, career and the gift of raising two wonderful children I returned to the low country in 2004. Being that my father retired in 1953 from Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot I have a great respect and admiration for all of our military men and women. I do however favor the United States Marines! Oorah! After living at this property for eleven years I made the decision to provide a short term vacation rental or home away from home for families who come to Beaufort to attend the graduation of their sons or daughters at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, SC. My property is also a great place for families who are visiting for family vacations as well as those travelling on business.

Marjorie Melvin purchased this Townhome in 2005

Why Marjorie Melvin chose Shell Point

Having been raised in Beaufort gives me a great love and appreciation for our beautiful waterways, beaches and the views that surround them. Finding this condo on the water was a dream come true for me.

What makes this Townhome unique

The main reason I purchased this home is because of the view of Battery Creek. I also loved the lay out of the house and the location.

                                                            From the minute I booked this property, up until I got there, I was impressed with the hospitality!

                                                            stephanie p.

                                                            We were greeted warmly by Marjorie the property owner. The house was immaculate! I am the type that does a complete walk through inspection of the house upon arriving and check corners, beds, fridge, etc. and I have to say I couldn't find a spec of dirt anywhere in that whole house! The house had a huge kitchen table with nice big comfy chairs that sat on the outside of the tables so everyone in our party could sit there together. The whole house was very roomy and we felt right at home. The one thing that impressed me the most is Marjorie seemed to think of all the little things one would need when traveling! For example, box fans in rooms without a ceiling fan, xtra toiletries in each bathroom, tide pods for laundry, foil, whole cabinet of seasonings, games for the family, xtra pillows and blankets in each closet! The list goes on! If I were ever to stay in Parris Island again I would no doubt stay right there! It was so close to my recruit! It took us two mins to get to base and my kids even walked home a couple of times when we stayed. It's right by the grocery store, nail spa, The Corp store (awesome Marine store where u can buy your marine any graduation gift u need), Devil Dog Store, and many more. It's a shopping center and it's almost directly across the street from where we stayed. We thought we had a problem with the hot water and I messaged her late at night and by next morning she had a repairman there ready to fix the problem but come to find out it was our error and we felt so bad! She was sweet as pie and sat and talked with me and my family laughing about it and recommending us places to eat and even invited us to where she was going! That house is amazing because it's owned by an AMAZING owner!! If you are coming to see your recruit graduate at Parris Island this is your house!

                                                            Nice, clean, quite, everything you need and so close to Marine facility.

                                                            We loved the location, easy to get to everywhere. The place was clean and had everything you need. We would highly reccomend this place and the owner is fantastic.

                                                            Everything was great! So close to base, perfect location.

                                                            Wonderful stay fresh for our Marine’s graduation! The home was perfect, beds were comfy and the location so close to MCRD was awesome! Thank you for everything!

                                                            Amazing place with an amazing owner!

                                                            Robin M.

                                                            We were literally minutes away from Parris Island for my brother's USMC graduation! Marjorie was amazing! Even with a crazy winter storm, Marjorie was so accommodating and the home was perfect! If we are ever in the area again we will be sure to stay again!

                                                            Oh my goodness you and your family are the best. Thank you for your kind words and more importantly your kindness! I hope you will be this way again in the future! Congratulations and my heartfelt gratitude!!

                                                            Great Experience! Nice home, owner was very welcoming!
