  • Would stay here again!

    "The house was exactly as advertised and we were very pleased with the condition and location of the home. A few of the beds were hard and springy and are in need of replacement and the kitchen could use a few more items (i.e. cutting board, pitcher, wine glasses, etc.). Otherwise, the location to the beach was great and the cottage is very close to the Melrose Beach Club. We did have an issue with getting in to the cottage upon arrival because the key code we were given was incorrect and we had no way to contact the property manager. We had to track him down through one of the locals that was able to find out who cleans the house and they were able to give us the correct access code. The property manager was very apologetic and quick to respond once he realized we were having an issue. All in all, we would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to others (just be sure to confirm the key code and a contact number a day or so before before arrival)."

  • Well-appointed. very comfortable cottage in a fantastic location

    "We just returned from a week's stay in this lovely cottage, and can't wait to go back. Cummins provided ample information about the island, especially logistics on how to get to and from the island. We found the cottage spotless, charmingly decorated, and well-stocked with beach chairs and toys, dishes and cookware, linens, and essential items. Water pressure is great. There was a family in the unit next door, and we never heard a peep. Cummins provided her number and we texted back and forth when we had questions; she was very responsive. It is a very comfortable space for a family to relax in; we ate breakfast on the screened porch and watched the birds and lizards and frogs, and we ate dinner and played games inside on the dining room table. If you're new to staying on the island, make sure you bring enough groceries/fresh foods to last you the week. It makes for a bulky and awkward arrival by boat, but you won't be able to find it on the island. We stayed a week and also brought extra paper goods, TP, coffee, laundry detergent, shampoo, etc. We rented a couple of golf carts at Bloody Point; it was far too hot to bike, but there were a couple under the house available to us if we chose. The cottage location is terrific. The water's edge is just a couple of minutes' walk. We swam with shrimp, rescued some loggerheads, found sand dollars and hermit crabs, saw a couple of dolphins and some shooting stars, all from the beach in front of the house. There's a hose on the house between the two front porches to wash off sand. On the days we went to the pool, we found it a short quarter-mile walk to the playground and beach club. We ate in each of the restaurants and found them all delightfully different. Bloody Point and the Beach Club were clubby upscale, and Marshside Mama's and the Old Daufuskie Crab Company more rustic. Of all, we enjoyed the food best at Marshside Mama's and the sunset view (and the scrap iron!) at the Crab Company. The only (tiny!) difficulties we faced were with the AC and the porch lights. It was tricky to get the temperature sorted in the green bed/bathroom, which stayed much chillier than the rest of the house. For folks sleeping in there, bring some socks or a light coverup and grab the extra blanket. The porch light kicked on at dusk and disturbed our sleep in the green bedroom. We had to climb up and loosen the bulbs to turn them off. (Only, do better than we did and put them back to rights again when you leave!)"

  • Hurricane Matthew

    "We were scheduled to stay at Villa 2301 starting October 20th. However, Hurricane Matthew hit Daufuskie Island the weekend before. After being contacted to ask about the condition of the island and the villa, the owner offered to refund the entire rental amount. These are the type of people you want to do business with! Thanks again! Sorry we didn't get to stay."

  • Home away from home

    "Property very welcoming, well taken care of and clean. Location is amazing on historic side of island. The island, of course, charms you all on its own with the friendly people and historic charm. Would love to plan a trip here next year!"
