About Us

We are here to make your stay perfect!

Daufuskie Rental Group was founded in 2013 and works in partnership with property owners to make their Daufuskie vacation homes available to island visitors. DRG is owned by Daufuskie resident Deborah Smith, who is Property Manager-in-Charge. Karen Opderbeck (also a licensed Property Manager) and Karla Clark are part of the DRG team, as are a group of local cleaning, transport, maintenance, and cart provider residents. 


Deborah and the entire DRG team strive to match our visitors with the properties that best meet their needs. Team members are island residents who love sharing Daufuskie with our vacation guests. We provide trip planning assistance and onsite support once guests have arrived. DRG only works with vacation homes that are attractive and well-maintained, and strive for a 5-star experience for all our visitors.


All team members are dedicated to conserving and protecting Daufuskie's environmental, historic, and cultural resources., and are volunteers for a number of island nonprofit endeavors. Deborah is the immediate past-Chair of the Daufuskie Island Council and operates an island sanctuary for abused, neglected, and homeless pets. She and her son, Teshawn, live in their Melrose cottage.
