Daufuskie Island, South Carolina
Outstanding oceanfront home in a private plantation on a secluded barrier island in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
This 5 bedroom, 6 bath property is located in Melrose Plantation on the Atlantic Ocean. There are stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, Hilton Head Island and Tybee Island from most rooms and the multiple porches and decks.
There are 3 oceanfront master suites each with its own Jacuzzi tub. There are three oceanfront decks and two fairway decks. There is a screened porch for outdoor dining.
The home has three separate living areas and two laundry rooms. There is a second refrigerator for extra food and a wine cooler with wet bar.
The beach directly behind our home is beautiful and quite private - like few other beaches in the country. The charm of Daufuskie Island is unique, inviting, warm and very friendly. "Southern Charm" is alive and well here on Daufuskie.
Come experience a tranquil, relaxing stay in our lovely home on the beach. Bring your swimsuit, golf clubs, tennis racquets and be prepared to relax.
**The Melrose resort has transferred ownership and a few things are still being worked out. At the moment the golf course is closed, the Beach Club Restaurant and the stables are open, and the pool is expected to open on a seasonal basis.
There has been erosion of the seawall in front of the home due to Atlantic storms so the house is now directly located on the beach which is tidal.
At times the water will come up to the ocean level slab. The first floor of the house is located about 18 feet above the ground on pilings so this does not effect the home itself.

Beautiful home, disappointing lack of transparency about damage
The house we stayed in was beautiful and well appointed. Unfortunately, the air conditioning on the first level was not working properly and the internet access what challenging, forcing us to use our personal hotspots and not rely on the internet, despite efforts to reboot. The biggest issue was the lack of transparency or at the very least, not informing us that there was no beach and no pool at this house. Due to damage from a 4 year ago hurricane, the high tide came in UNDER the house, the ground level was washed away and is non-existent, and there was nowhere around the house to find beach, even as this photo and description does not clarify. This was a big deal to us and we were disappointed. The island is an oasis of nature and beauty. The devastation remaining from the hurricane was disappointing. ”
We had a five star experience on Daufuskie Island. The house and view were spectacular. With three stories, we had plenty of room to relax. Please note that there a few problems with torn and stained furniture, as well as the elevator not working, but these did not affect our stay. There is not a great deal of things to do on the island, three restaurants, and a few places to visit. With our electric bikes, we were able to ride all the tree lined roads and trails. It was perfect for bike riding. A bicycle or golf cart (rental) is a must. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation with no crowds, this is the place.”
True island escape
Daufuskie Island is a very special and simple place. Enjoy nature, island locals, trips into Hilton Head or just relax in this beautiful home and take walks on the beach. The house manager was super accommodating and full of great tips. ”
Escape to the island way of life!
Coastal Escape was genuinely an escape to a wonderful island way of life. With our own private stretch of beach to enjoy. We had 8 adults and two children in this beautiful home and had more than enough room with the way the house is laid out. My favorite spot was the third floor balcony where I watched the stars wink out and the sun rise. We were so blessed and thankful to enjoy this home and would love to come back. The residents of the island were welcoming and so friendly and helpful with the history of the island. Wonderful memories were made for our family and friends! -Linda Hardesty”
Most Relaxing Vacation Ever
Stunning home with the most serene surroundings I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Being unplugged and in such a beautiful place was just what we needed. I highly recommend this coastal escape for anyone looking to unwind and recharge in a five stars environment. Everyone we had the pleasure of speaking with was very helpful and made all aspects of the trip easy and enjoyable.”
The house was very beautiful! It overlooks the ocean on one side and the golf course on the other. This was a girl's golf trip, so we played Harbour Town on Hilton Head and then Melrose, Bloody Point and Haig Point on Daufuskie. The difficult part is just getting to the island. There is no grocery store, so you need to arrange to buy groceries before coming to the island. Our water taxi, Harbour Town Adventures, was not very nice about allowing us to bring the groceries on the boat. You also need to rent expensive golf carts ($50 per day per cart), to get around the island. These were not included with the house. The house has everything else that you need and looks brand new. We loved the decor! There are 3 master suites, making it very spacious, along with 2 other bedrooms, and a pull out couch on the third floor. We had a great time!!”
