Choose Your Lifestyle

Without a bridge to the mainland, and only a few paved roads, Daufuskie Island is unique. White sand beaches, ancient oaks, Spanish moss and historical landmarks all lend a rural, “back-in-time” feel, while an eclectic arts scene keeps the spirit of the island alive and thriving. Elegant homes nestle against white sand beaches.  Life-long residents greet you with hospitality reserved for friends, not strangers.  Daufuskie is the perfect destination to unplug from the everyday and reconnect with friends and family.  Life-style choices on Daufuskie range from quaint Lowcountry cottages in the Historic District to grander oceanfront homes in residential communities such as Haig Point, Melrose Plantation, and Bloody Point.  Island real estate professionals can help you understand your choices.

Haig Point

Shaded island roads and trails, lined with live oaks festooned with Spanish moss, meander through the private residential community of Haig Point.  Traffic is utterly non-existent.  Bikes and golf carts are the accepted mode of transportation. Children play outdoors without a care in the world.

When people arrive here, they leave the hustle and bustle of their busy lives behind.  Slowing down is part of why they come but that doesn’t mean they forget about health and wellness.  Sports and fitness are important at Haig Point and the opportunities to stay active include golf, tennis, horse back riding, fishing, boating and just exploring the miles of pristine beaches.

Consider this about Haig Point living:

  • Privacy, serenity and natural beauty that only an island without a bridge can offer;
  • Accessible by Haig Point’s private ferry service and water taxis;
  • Just 5-minutes by boat from the famous resort destination of Hilton Head Island, SC;
  • Access to ocean and in-land water ways;
  • Exceptional Ammenities – The Haig Point Clubhouse where your business meeting, wedding reception or intimate dinner event becomes special;  the Fitness Center with state-of-the-art equipment and access to the adult swimming pool;  the Calibogue  Club with its gourmet dining, specialty dinner nights and the most amazing views of Calibogue Sound;  the Beach Club with its resort-style family pool, food & beverage service and incredible beachfront views, and the Tennis Center which features a tennis shop and six Har-Tru® courts, rated Outstanding by the USTA.

All this is wrapped in a community where faces have names, people are caring and you define your own life style — active or relaxed, social or secluded, yet always private.


Schedule a Haig Point Discovery Experience

Melrose Plantation

With miles of pristine beach, Melrose Plantation on Daufuskie Island boasts some of the best views of the Atlantic on the East Coast.  Within the plantation, you will find the Melrose Beach Club and Pool. It’s a great place for families staying in Melrose to kick back and watch the kids have fun at  the beach or in the pool.  The Beach Club features casual dining and the view from the out-door dining deck over the water to Hilton Head is unforgettable.

Bloody Point

Bloody Point  is located on idyllic Daufuskie Island, which is situated between Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia, and is accessible only by boat.

Bloody Point is a boutique resort that offers members and visitors the chance to enjoy “flip-flop luxury” amidst endless natural beauty and miles of secluded beach. After coming under new ownership in 2011, the Resort has experienced a total renovation and is now family-owned and operated.

We invite you to experience the beauty for yourself. We’d love to introduce you to our corner of Daufuskie Island and the lifestyle we offer. Make Bloody Point your “home away from home”!
