About this home

There is no "BRIDGE" to Daufuskie Island, so your adventure begins with a private boat or ferry ride. You can schedule land transportation to take you to the house, but we recommend renting a golf cart to explore the beautiful island. Please message us with any questions or suggestions on logistics.


Upon entering the home, you will be met with mesmerizing views of the Atlantic Ocean and your toes will hit the sand as soon as you walk out the door. Erosion has brought the ocean to the back of the home at high tide, so be prepared for sun, sand and water!



On the first floor, you will find the main living area with kitchen, dining room and two bedrooms. The large living area is centered around an elegant sofa and 55' flat screen TV. There is also a sitting area to enjoy the amazing ocean views each morning.



The first bedroom has a king bed, pull out sofa bed, full bath and flat screen TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed, full bath and flat screen TV. The master bedroom on the second floor has been designed with relaxation in mind, you can enjoy the comforts of home with a king size bed and flat screen TV. The master suite has large closets, a jacuzzi tub and separate shower.



We do provide you with an initial (24 hours) supply of toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, and trash bags. We recommend that you bring the following: Additional Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Trash Bags, Napkins, Condiments, Dish Washing Liquid and Laundry Soap. We also suggest bringing spices to cook with, a hair dryer, coffee and coffee filters and beach towels. (We have a traditional coffee maker and Kuerig) And anything else you may need for your perfect vacation!



Everyone wants to stay at a BEACHFRONT property and now YOU can! The Purple House was recently purchased from the original owner after falling in love with the house and the island. We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

    Amazing place for a getaway!!!

    We loved staying at the Purple House! This amazing house has marvelous views, no matter where you look! It's right on the beach and my boys loved to be able to run out and hop right in the water. We saw so much wildlife: dolphins, bald eagles, pelicans, butterflies, deer...just to name a few! It's definitely off the beaten path and an adventure getting to the island. There were a few glitches but the host was super responsive and got things resolved quickly! The house was well appointed and plenty of space for our family of four. We're already planning our next trip there!

    Purple House Paradise!

    A healing, cathartic stay! After a long year of remote learning, we needed to get away! Perfect location to relax, unwind, and soak in the stunning views! Dolphins swam by every day! The ocean views are breathtaking! Not typically a beach person, but this is my kind of beach! Private, close to a home base. Nature lovers paradise! Birding on Daufuskie is a cherished experience! Nikki is an excellent host!! We will absolutely be back to the purple house! Love, Team Hartman 💜💜💜

    What a week

    This house is second to none. The whole week we had people coming down the beach to see what they were missing on their rental properties. The communication with the owner was like talking to a family member. This stay has provided us a lifetime of memories, can't wait to get back.

    Unforgettable Stay!

    The property description does not do this property justice. The views and proximity to the beach was amazing! We had the windows open our entire stay, enjoying the breeze and sounds of the waves. There was nothing to the right of the house which made us feel like we were the only ones on the beach fir miles. The decor was perfect and “beachy”. The owners were so sweet and replied instantly to any questions we had. We loved the island and the house and will definitely be back!

    Lovely!

    Truly a serene and beautiful spot on the island. If you want solitude and peacefulness this is the spot for you. Home is spotless, clean and charming and has plenty of room. Views are million dollar! Seeing dolphins, large boats and the natural state of the island is breathtaking. Peace is tranquil and large. No complaints here! We loved it and would go back again! Host is over the top accommodating and helpful about island resources. It was a dream!
