Developing a realistic view of your needs, lifestyle, and financial picture are first steps in the Daufuskie Island real estate search process. You’ll need a good checklist and grasp of the Daufuskie Island real estate market's workings to see what suits you best. The five-mile-long, two-and-a-half-mile wide sea island paradise of Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, can be divided into five neighborhoods, each unique and each reflecting the spectacular natural beauty of Daufuskie Island.

Haig Point
Let’s begin our tour on the northernmost point of Daufuskie Island: Haig Point. Assuming we’ve flown into Savannah, we’re met by a driver who takes us to the embarkation center on Hilton Head. We’ve boarded and are lured topside to feel the ocean spray and to enjoy the dolphins dancing in the sparkling waters of Calibogue Sound. Out of the trees at Haig Point looms a meticulously restored old lighthouse, now a rejuvenated charming guesthouse for members and their guests.

Coming ashore you are immediately struck by how well maintained Daufuskie Island is. Your eye spans spacious, beautifully-groomed gardens, attractive Lowcountry houses and plenty of open spaces.

Haig Point is a residential community within Daufuskie Island real estate and has a limit of 725 family homesites, but it’s far from the typical gated golf community. Daufuskie Island real estate owners of Haig Point enjoy tennis, golf, beach club and a level of service rarely found in today’s real estate developments, ranging from valets bringing groceries to your kitchen, to a house call from the golf cart repairman. The absence of private cars adds to its charm.

Once you have your membership under your belt, you can choose a developer homesite and build your own real estate, purchase a resale lot, a single family house or a condominium. Your membership includes use of the ferries and more amenities than you ever dreamed.

Going south past the paddocks of the Equestrian Center and out Haig Point’s gate, you’ll see a sign for the Daufuskie Island Club and Resort, sometimes called the Melrose property. Passing the guard shack, you’ll sense the tranquility amidst manicured lawns, majestic oaks and an unspoiled southern charm. Boasting undulating golf greens, tennis courts, beach club with swimming pools and an elegant executive conference center, this full-service resort among the Daufuskie Island real estate market is a hopping wedding and meeting destination. Daufuskie Island homes are visible through the trees, and if this setting appeals to you, it’s possible to purchase a membership here.

The Daufuskie Island real estate market can tempt you with a newly renovated oceanfront cottage, a house or a knockout homesite that will allow you to fulfill your fantasy of owning Daufuskie Island real estate. Go ahead and stroll along the secluded beach and take a glimpse at crowded, hurried Hilton Head across the water. Resort guests and Daufuskie Island real estate owners of Melrose are whisked across from Hilton Head by ferry, and here too, your transportation is anything but the automobile.
