About Lauren Rauch
Coming from a small town in Pa. our family built this home in 2000 after spending almost 14 years vacationing on Daufuskie. My Dad played in the Harbor Town Heritage Pro Am Tournament for several years, and it was the one place our family would vacation each summer, some falls, and even a few Christmases.
Why Lauren Rauch chose Melrose on the Beach
The Island has such rich history, including a little First Union African Baptist church we attend while we are there, with a rich history that could never be matched. We grew up vacationing on the island like it was a second home. We found Indian pottery and arrowheads while walking the beach. These are just a few of the historical aspects deeming Daufuskie to be so unique, rich, and diverse in its offerings.
What makes this House unique
Listening to the calm and serene sounds of the Calibogue Sound, & watching the bald eagles fly by, and viewing the fireworks at Harbor Town and Tybee island on the 4th of July are just a few things we see from our front porch. Our home is set up to enjoy the company of one another, to cook and share a meal, catch blue crabs in the ocean when the tide is low, or share dinner with an islander at the Daufuskie Crab Company, the Eagles Nest at Bloody Point, or Lucy Bell's Cafe'. Enjoy listening to a live band with the locals most in season weekends. These are just a few of the special things we look forward to enjoying on our visits to this island paradise we call Daufuskie.

Best Vacation I could ask for!
This home on Daufuskie island was the best vacation I could have asked for! My 9 closest girlfriends and family members stayed for 5 days to celebrate my upcoming wedding! None of us had been to SC before so everything was a new adventure.
We spent long days on the sandy beaches and by the pool. We mostly relaxed and soaked in the sun. (October is pretty cold in Minnesota 😁�). There were beautiful sunrises and dolphins swimming so close everyday!
The house was incredible. It’s exactly the house we were looking for this celebration. Everyone was comfortable and had more than enough space. I would recommended this home to anyone! We are already planning our next trip back to the Twigg’s house! We can’t wait!!
I would rent this property again in a heartbeat.
We visited at the end of vacation season. There were a couple of areas of the house that needed some attention, but I also know that there is not much time between guests during vacation season. I truly fell in love with the house and the island. The owner responded quickly to the issues we brought to her attention and I was completely satisfied with the response. Very easy to work with. I hope to be a return visitor I’ve dat!
Relaxing home on the beach
Our group of 15 had a fabulous seven night stay and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The kitchen and living areas are great for get togethers and the rooms allow for privacy. The porches were spectacular and we were lucky to enjoy a night time storm sitting on the porch. Everyone was quick to reply with any questions or needs we had. The beach is only minutes away and easily accessible. Would highly recommend this home ❤️.
The property was beautiful. Lots of room for our family and friends we met on the island. Completely
Lots of room for our family and friends we met on the island. Great view! Quick response from Laura and her manager!!! We loved it!
Best House for Big Family
This was our third visit to Daufuskie and second time staying at the house. We brought more people this time. There was plenty of room for 4 families to not feel like we were on top of each other. There are 2 living room areas and 2 sets of washer/dryers. The A/C worked great. There are ceiling fans inside as well. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and the showers are huge. Great location (can't beat the ocean view) inside Melrose and now the pool is open. The granddad in our group enjoyed almost the entire week rocking on the front porch watching all the different ships go by.
The home is equipped with many of the things you need - we found beach towels, a handful of beach chairs, plenty of plates & kitchen utensils, extra blankets, and a few movies and games.
The owner is very friendly, easy to interact with, and quick to respond to questions. I'm thankful our big family was able to enjoy this house a second time.
Thank you for such kind words! We have enjoyed having your group, and hope you continue to come back to stay each year! Daufuskie is such a special place. We are just thrilled we can share our home with great people like yourselves.
This was our first time on the island and the house was perfect for a family gathering to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. The house is spacious, beautiful and the location perfect. A wonderful getaway from the busy city life!!
