This tranquil and serene setting boasts a golf course, spa facility, two second row ocean lots and 20 developmental units. Bloody Point is a spectacular getaway offering breathtaking sunrises and incredible views.
The 18-hole layout was designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Moorish. The scenic course is set along the banks of the Mungen River and looks out to the Atlantic Ocean and across the marshes to Savannah, Ga. A clubhouse complete with a Pro shop, locker rooms, casual dining, and lounge occupy this gorgeous golf course. Also located near the clubhouse is a spa facility that was one of the most recognized “stay spas” in the southeast.
Two exceptional homesites front the Bloody Point Golf Course and offer incredible views of the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Nearby are 20 developmental units located in The Oceanfront Village, an area that stretches between the ocean and the clubhouse.
Spanning 668± acres, Melrose Plantation serves as the island’s main resort with an oceanfront golf course, oceanfront inn & conference center, beach club, tennis center, equestrian center, cottage homes, and administrative facilities.

The Club also features two oceanfront heated swimming pools and a hot tub. Oceanfront site currently approved for a condominium development or single family homesites.
Melrose Plantation is one of the rare resorts along the Atlantic Coast that offers guests and residents a 16± acre equestrian center with stables, fenced pastures, and miles of riding trails.
Melrose Inn is a 52-key oceanfront inn on 43± acres with a fine dining restaurant and lounge. Most of the deluxe rooms offer breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean. Adjacent to the property are two additional 4± acre parcels. Both oceanfront parcels have been approved for 36 developmental units.

The ocean Residence Club offers spacious cottage homes, that feature an abundance of coastal charm. Four ocean front 4-bedroom cottages with great views are available.

A 2-bedroom oceanfront cottage is also available just yards from the beach and nestled within a low country forest.
The lifestyle experienced while staying in one of the cottage homes in the Ocean Residence Club is ideal for family vacations, romantic getaways, or weekend with friends. The cottage homes are spacious, private, and feature an abundance of coastal charm. Four oceanfront 4-bedroom cottages with great views are available. The homes include two separate living and kitchen areas that create the flexibility of a two 2-bedroom furnished residence. Five additional 4-bedroom cottage homes are offered and located just one row back from the beach. A 2-bedroom oceanfront cottage is just yards from the beach and nestled within a lowcountry forest. All of the cottage homes are un-renovated and were originally built between 1986 and 1988.
In the northeast portion of Melrose Plantation are three administration buildings that provide maintenance, gas, and garbage services to the resort. An engineering facility, repair shop, and supply warehouse also occupy these buildings. This is also the sight of eleven staff housing units. The 4-bedroom units have a kitchen, bathroom, living room, and laundry area.
Melrose Landing is the main port of arrival for the island and includes a 10,000+/- sq. ft. commercial land parcel. Fronting the Intercoastal Waterway, the boat dock and development rights along with the permits and entitlements for 30 units create a wonderful opportunity for a 4+/- acre marine village.
Just one nautical mile from Hilton Head and 12 nautical miles from Savannah, Daufuskie Island is a secluded island getaway with three miles of gorgeous, pristine beachfront.
The history of Daufuskie Island includes Native American inhabitants, bloody battles during the American Revolution, “Sea Island Cotton” in the 1800’s, and later an inspiration for Pat Conroy’s novel, “The Waters Are Wide.” Today the island is equally intriguing with its lowcountry style, unspoiled natural beauty, and peaceful tranquility.
With existing entitlements, permits, and established infrastructure, this is a rare and remarkable opportunity for investors.
