  • 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!)"

  • Most relaxing vacation ever

    "We absolutely loved the island and this cottage. It's beautifully decorated and being able to look out your door and see the ocean makes it a great relaxing home away from home. We had everything we needed for the one meal we chose to cook and all of the restaurants we visited had great food and great people. I walked the beach every day. It is so beautiful. We will definitely be back."

  • Captain Makes the Trip

    "To agree with previous renters, wow! What a great place to stay. Owners are very attentive to ensure everything runs smoothly. Pricing is great. Views are spectacular. Place is very relaxing so you can leave those mainland worries behind. Since it seems to be one of the few homes on the island with a name, I mentioned it to some of the locals, and EVERYONE knew who the Captain is! He's a local celebrity bordering on folk hero. The home is fantastic, the island is a treasure. What a great weekend!"

  • Simply Perfection

    "I can't summarize into works how perfect our family vacation was. The owner is great to work with, the house is beautiful with every possible amentity one would need. The house was immaculate and perfect for children too! Only steps away from one of the most pristine and gorgeous beaches. For a first time visitor to Daufuskie, I'm in awe and plan on coming back year after year. This house is one of the only few four bedrooms we found oceanfront on Daufuskie and Melrose on the Beach is perfect! The pool accommodates all ages and was our refuge in the hot late afternoons after a day at the beach. We are planning on renting this house again next year!"
