What People Say

“Our stay was amazing. We had a school group of 20 girls and the floor plan was perfect for us. The beach had some great shell finds. People were very friendly. We had a fire alarm beeping and they came in and change batteries almost immediately. Messaged to check in on us several times. They had exactly what we needed. We had so much fun during our stay.”



What People Say

“Thanks for a great weekend. Very accommodating home for a group as large as we had staying there Super Bowl Weekend. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms along with large open kitchen/dining/living area.”

1) Daufuskie Rental Group makes a good faith effort to describe island amenities, including restaurants and pools. However, please note that we are not responsible for the availability of amenities that we do not operate and that are beyond our control. Please contact the vendors directly for rates, days and hours of operation.  



2) Your rental agreement contract’s cancellation policy states that we are not responsible for events that are beyond our control, such as hurricanes. We strongly encourage our guests to purchase travel insurance, and especially recommend “cancel for any reason” policies. (These must be purchased shortly after your reservation is made.)
