Perfect for what it is!

  • 5 of 5

Jolly shores is an amazing property. A great place to entertain a larger group. Two golf carts and car came in handy and the outside pavilion was perfect with sound system, ice maker and pool tables/ping pong tables all in working order. The bedrooms do what they are suppose to do and everything was in working order. Some of the rooms are a little dirty/dusty but nothing to cancel a trip for. Overall, the property was perfect for our group and we had a great time.

Always a fantastic time!

  • 4 of 5

We live in Savannah and have rented out Jolly Shores the last few years. It is a really fun place and the owner is always just a phone call away. It could be a little cleaner, but it is Daufuskie Island and it's an older home so it was fine! The focus was more on the memories my family and friends have all made here!

We didn't want to leave! This 'compound' is perfect for friends and family to relax or celebrate a special occasion. The location couldn't be more gorgeous and the game room was perfect for a large group to play games, enjoy music etc. we cannot wait to return!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Daufuskie is one of our favorite places to get away, relax and forget about the worries of normal life. Our whole family from grandparents, adults, teenagers, toddlers and babies (can't leave out the dogs too!) all loved our stay at Jolly shores! It was stress free, plenty of comfortable room for everyone and so many fun family things to do at Jolly Shores and of course all over the island. The big game room was wonderful, it was fun for all ages. The dock was perfect to watch the sunset and dolphins. Ping pong and pool were also a big hit with our family. We loved the whole laid back style of Jolly Shores!
