(No autos allowed) When you rent each cottage has golf carts available for transportation.Beautiful island and kept clean. I think the cottages are a reasonable price and are good for large families. One negatives--mosquitoes.

Dewees is a beautiful and private coastal island. There is only one way on and off the island - the ferry. Unfortunately if you don't own property here you cant keep your boat here (making it a bit impractical). There are no businesses per se on the island (so you'll need to bring your own food). The conservationist have done a great job preserving the island. With that said, the fishing wasn't great (likely due to the freeze this winter that impacted this regions fishing). I gave the island 3 stars for one reason -- the deer flies and mosquitos right now make it impossible to enjoy yourselves outside in the morning and evening. We are from Florida near the Everglades - so we are fairly experienced outdoor enthusiasts. I have found myself most of this trip wishing I had brought my mosquito head gear and outfit. The local on the boat to us its the worst hes ever seen. Frankly I am surprised just how horrendous it is here. My husband and I had to literally run to our gold cart, throw in our chairs and escape this morning. Other than that ... or during the winter months ... I would highly recommend it..

Our family (grandparents, parents, and kids) just love this incredible barrier island off the coast of Charleston, SC. We've been here many times and never been disappointed. It is pristine - birds, ocean, sand, no paved roads, no cars. You get there by ferry and bring your groceries from the mainland. However, if you want a golf course that you don't need to take a ferry to get to, don't pick this wonderful island. Ditto for restaurants and clubs. What you get at Dewees is peace and quiet with tidal pools for the littlest kids and generally mild surf for older kids and adults. There are terrific accommodations- houses to rent and apartments in the Shutler House. For a small fee, you can get your shopping done for you, but you do need to cook for yourselves. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants that are easy to get to as long as you are ok with going back & forth by water and then a short car ride (lots of parking at the ferry).

We experienced this island on a whim over 3 yrs ago and have fun planning each trip since. It's unusual in that you bring everything you need for time on island with you and use your golf cart to motor around (no cars). It does take some planning to know what you want to bring (and pack conservatively) but so worth it once you're there. We have sometimes been 2 people of maybe 50 on the island and never seen another person in 2+ days. Beaches are fantastic, fishing is good, no phones even better for short periods. There is a community pool and tennis courts but not any other entertainment sources other than your own imagination. If we ever had a large family event we would look for bigger house to rent but usually stay at 1-2 bd condos at main house. Still so easy to take ferry back to get something forgotten or for a dinner in town. Try this one if you like quiet places to enjoy nature.

Even though the Island is inhabited. It still has the feeling of a true barrier island. You can walk along the beaches and experience all a natural beach has to offer.
