About this home

Escape the crowds and come enjoy the true rejuvenation of a beach get-away. Accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie Island is the perfect place to take a step away from it all. Tall palmetto and live oaks grace the skyline and provide respite from the hot Carolina sun until you reach the shoreline to enjoy the sun, sand, and water. Daufuskie is known for its rich Gullah history, its many artisans, empty beaches, and rare wildlife—from Bald Eagles to Marsh Tacky horses. In fact, take an afternoon to ride these horses along the beach or schedule horseback riding lessons for you or your kids. Horseback riding not your thing? Try indigo dying at Daufuskie Blues, learn more about the Gullah people on a history tour, visit the Bloody Point Lighthouse Museum and Silver Dew Winery, shop at the Iron Fish Gallery or Silver Dew Pottery, or just sit at one of the public docks, kick back and fish. There is no shortage of activities, allowing you the opportunity to determine how laid back or active you want your vacation to be.
Just a three minute walk to the ocean, Captain Monroe House is the perfect place to experience the best of Daufuskie. Nestled in the trees, Captain Monroe House’s location combines access to the beach, ample space for multi-family gatherings, and privacy. There is something for everyone. Two master suites boast closets large enough to be used as nurseries. Young children enjoy playing in the kids’ nook, stocked with classic toys, books, and art supplies. Older children can enjoy games, slacklining, driving golf balls on the abandoned golf course, and the freedom to explore. Adults relax in the extra gathering spaces on the front and rear porches. With a kitchen designed for entertaining, cooking together is a joy and clean-up easy. Enjoy an evening movie together or hang out under the fans on the screened porch and play games. The best part is, with its open living layout, Captain Monroe House is a place where it is easy for families to come together.

Wake in the morning to the vivid colors of the sunrise and the sun glistening off of the water through the trees. Decide what activities fit your mood. Do you feel like swimming? Paddle boarding? Exploring beautiful driftwood beaches and collecting shells? Or maybe you want to walk the beach to the island’s southernmost tip. If adventure isn’t what you are looking for, explore the northern side of the island or swim at the Melrose Community Pool. As evening falls, make sure to spend at least one evening at Freeport Marina eating and listening to live music or dining at Belles on the Beach at the Melrose Beach Club.

Cognizant of our guests’ health and safety, we have completely replaced the ductwork and installed MicroPower Guard filters with double UV light bulbs on our heating and cooling systems ensuring you have a clean and sanitary environment. Our carefully-selected Beach Busters Cleaning Service pay close attention to detail and follow the COVID-19 Five Step Enhanced Cleaning Process of sanitizing between each set of guests. Rest assured, we care about clean.

Don’t let the logistics of getting to Daufuskie discourage you. We are happy to help you navigate golf cart rental, the ferry ride, island transportation, and the best options for getting groceries to the island. It may sound daunting, but it is a seamless process and well worth the added effort. We have activity guides and contacts for you to arrange extra experiences while on the island and we’ll let you in

on our favorite morning walks and destinations.
Come stay at Captain Monroe House and discover Daufuskie Island, the best-kept secret on the East Coast.
